It has all the amenities you'd expect in an upscale vacation home, including flat screens, granite countertops and a second living area. A full-sized laundry room with a washer & dryer, two parking spots in the driveway, as well as an additional overflow parking lot are available for guests as well. Nearby are 6 miles of paved trails - perfect for both walking or biking.  Your group will find their Happily Ever After just a short walk from the white sandy beaches Destin is famous for.  

There's also a queen-sized air mattress, so this home can accommodate 10.

*This property is not available for rent to those adults under the age of 25, no exceptions.*

*The lagoon pool is seasonally heated for the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break (1st week of March to 2nd week of April).*

Villages of Crystal Beach is an exclusive, gated community only a few blocks from the beautiful blue waters and white sandy beaches of Destin. You can make the walk on foot or hop on the free seasonal trolley service (Memorial Day through Labor Day): they will even pick you up at the house and drop you off right at the beach! The pool area at Villages of Crystal Beach is a vacation must! The lagoon style zero entry pool is 30,000 square feet of gorgeous, sparkling clear water. There is a spa, tropical landscaping, and plenty of seating areas. It also has surround sound, a flat screen TV, and a grilling area to help you relax and unwind.

Please note that there are parking restrictions within the Villages of Crystal Beach. There are two parking spaces available in the driveway of the home with an overflow lot for one additional vehicle. Trailers, RV's, boats, golf carts, and motorcycles are not allowed within the community gates; alternate parking arrangements will need to be made for these items. 

Area Attractions: 
There are wonderful shops and restaurants close by and great attractions such as golf courses, Big Kahuna's Water and Adventure Park, boating, fishing, and water-sports!

Close by is Destin Commons, a beautifully landscaped, pedestrian-friendly area and a great family venue where children will love to play in the interactive water fountains. Also, for the younger guests, a nautically/pirate themed outdoor playground features a 1,750 square foot soft play area with various creatures from the sea, slides, and a treasure chest!  Destin Commons also has a mini-train for the kids. Destin Commons features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Godiva Chocolates, AMC Movie Theaters and Bass Pro Shop.

If you are near Miramar Beach, the snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Dolphin Reef, deployed in 2017.  Located just 685 feet straight out from the Miramar Regional Public Beach access (by Pompano Joe's), it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Dolphin Reef is at a depth of 12-20 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

Spring Break Stay - Great house with a great location. The house was close to the beach and close to shopping. The community pool was really nice as well.

Spring Break - The property was great. The only thing that I dinged on was the stove- we could only get a couple of burners to work and struggled to get ahold of anyone. The kitchen was the best stocked property I’ve every stayed in and the condo used space super well. Would definitely come back.

Great experience! - We will absolutely be using RealJoy and this rental again. Smooth easy experience.

Comfortable stay - Property had everything we needed. Short walk to the beach. Pool was a little overcrowded and parking is very limited, but overall it was a great week.

Happily Ever After- a great stay for families or groups - We had a great visit to Destin. The property was perfect for two families and had all we needed for our stay. The proximity to the beach was really convenient and the walk was about 10 minutes at a slow pace. We didn’t use the beach trolley but it seemed to be very reliable as we saw it all the time in the complex. The pool was large and nice. The rules of the pool seemed a bit excessive at times and the company that manages the pool was a bit overbearing enforcing the rules, but other than that, it was super close to the house and a nice place to hang out after the beach. Would definitely recommend!

Nice vacation - Everything went well. A couple of issues that they came out for. Refrigerator was leaking, never really stopped as maintenance said, but that was the only unresolved issue.

Jun 14, 2021

Wonderful stay - This place was great. Very nice accommodations and close to everything. Would love to return again sometime.

May 17, 2021

- Real Joy’s Happily Ever After is a great place to stay. It’s close to the beach and stores, quiet, spacious, comfortable, and close to the pool. Would definitely stay there again.

- This house was beautiful and sparkling clean! Our trip was super short so we didn’t get to use the pool but it looked really nice. The beach was close and there is a Whole Foods in walking distance so that was helpful. The communication was stellar as well, very quick responses when communicating about check in.
