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!

Couples Getaway - Excellent property management! Beautiful home, my friends and I enjoyed our stay. The beach was a close enough walk, my only suggestion is maybe they provide a pull cart to haul stuff. There are restaurants within walking distance that we enjoyed as well. A perfect couples retreat!! Thank you

- Our group had the BEST time! Highly recommend to anyone staying in Destin 🙂

- RealJoy was easy to work with. Our house was clean when we arrived. The only negative thing I'd say is they do not give many essentials. We had 3 trash bags and 2 dishwasher tablets for 4 nights with 7 adults. We basically went through that the first couple of days. I wish they would stock enough toilet paper, trash bags, dishwasher tablets, etc. to get you through the stay. Also, there was no salt and pepper at the house. Yes, we can go buy this stuff, but when you are paying over $5K, I believe these necessary items should be included and get you through the stay.

- Nice home you won't regret it

Jun 11, 2022

- Great place with an amazing pool and wonderful location! Just a few minutes walk to the beach.

Make sure if you’re in for a long stay to bring some toilet paper, paper towels, and hand/dish soap.

Family Vacation - Awesome and amazing! Great location! Great house! Beds and pillows were a little soft for our comfort.

Apr 22, 2022

- Awesome family vacation at the “Jewel of the Terra Cotta”!! Kids loved the pool and the bunk beds. House well laid out and lots of space. Kitchen well stocked with all you need to cook for the family meals. Great location and close the restaurants and Destin Commons.

Mar 18, 2022

- House was perfect for our family trip! Beautiful house close to the beach. The built in bunk beds were a hit for our kids and everyone slept soundly! Pool was awesome.. definitely needed to have it heated since the weather was still chilly in March. Basic amenities could have been better given the length of our stay (toilet paper, dishwashing tablets and garbage bags). We had to purchase many things and leave them since we flew. Heads up- Shower towels were provided but none available for the beach. Another item we had to purchase and leave behind or throw away. We’d definitely stay here again!

Excellent - Great Experience, accurate description of the property .

Oct 13, 2021

Great getaway!! - Awesome house!! Loved location, pool, and the fact everyone had the ability to escape to their own personal space. My only negative comment is we were unable to grill. The grill looked as if it had never been cleaned.

Sep 29, 2021

- This place is just perfect !!! Check in is just get the door code (1 hr before check in time ) … then at the right time just walk in … so simple and easy !! House have huge spaces … very modern and cozy design … all rooms have TVs … they have all that I needed in the kitchen … gave us like 20 towels… I can’t just remember every single nice detail about this place … definitely I’m coming back in the future !!!

Sep 15, 2021

- Very nice place and clean very close to the beach I literally recommend it

Fantastic Home - We had an amazing time on our most recent trip to Destin. This was our 4th time in the area and our family loved this home. The home had plenty of space, kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need, the outdoor space in the back was relaxing, and it’s a short walk to the beach. Our kids loved the bunk beds. We would stay here again.

Sep 03, 2021

- It was gorgeous!! There were quite a few things that were definitely not clean, but for the most part it was good! It was a perfect walk to the beach and the pool was amazing!!

Aug 31, 2021

Excellent property - We had a wonderful week at the Jewel of Terra Cotta! House was just as described and had a wonderful set-up for our group. Close to everything and a short .25 mile walk to the beach. Thank you for the opportunity to stay there and hope to return in the future! You have a beautiful property!!

Spacious for Families with family members - The house was extremely clean and spacious. Perfect for families with active children. The pool was more popular than the beach with the kids.. Kitchen was well equipped which made it easy to prepare meals.. Beach was a good walk uphill so the kids rode in wagons and since it is private, it was not crowded. Two small issues - dryer was slow to dry clothes and ice maker was slow to produce ice.,!but did not interfere with us enjoying the house.. Overall, we highly recommend this house.

Jul 21, 2021

Perfect! - This was a perfect vacation! Everyone enjoyed themselves, house was plenty big enough for our family of 10. House had everything we needed then some! No complaints! Will rent again in the future!! Thank you

BEST WEEK EVER! - This has been the best vacation we have been on in a while. The house was so nice and our favorite part was having a private pool for the kid’s to swim in whenever they wanted. When the ocean water felt too rough we came back and let the kids swim in the pool. We plan to book again next year. There were two things that needed attention, but not major, the washing machine had some nasty scum in it, but we cleaned it. The downstairs room had a loud humming/vibrating noise that we could not figure out what it was. We also rented a golf cart which was perfect to ride around in. My family loved the house and we did not want to leave.

May 23, 2021

- We had the best time! Perfect for our group of 7! Beautiful, clean, and the location couldn’t have been better!

May 08, 2021

- We enjoyed our week in this beautiful home! Great private yard with pool and close walk to the beach!

Apr 18, 2021

- Absolutely beautiful home and perfect location to the white sands and ocean water! RealJoy was an amazing host who always made themselves available if anything should arise. My family looks forward to vacationing in Destin again and will certainly look into RealJoy again!

Mar 23, 2021

- Great family vacation spot. The private pool and proximity to the beach was perfect. Great amenities and kitchen was large. Will definitely stay again!

Mar 07, 2021

- Great place! Would definitely stay here again. VERY clean! Great walking distance to the beach. Beautiful house. Anytime I called the host they were very friendly and helpful.

Jan 10, 2021

Definitely a Jewel - Our experience was excellent. The home is beautiful and the amenities made our stay just like home. The pool was a highlight for the kids and the beach was a short, easy walk. We were thoroughly impressed and would love to stay again in the future.

Private and perfect - This house is beautiful. The pool was the highlight for my family. The beach is a good walk for small kids. The current at the beach is very rough so we could not get in the ocean. Also, the rental chairs access most of the shoreline at the beach forcing you to either rent from them or be pushed away from the water. That was very frustrating after walking all the way down with all our beach gear. So, we stayed in and by the pool everyday.

Apr 02, 2020

Highly recommend! - We had 2 families that enjoyed our stay very much! The pool and backyard was nice for day and evenings. There was plenty of room for both the kids and adults to have their own space.

Dec 29, 2019

- This is a great place to stay! It was just the way it looked in the pictures - very big and clean! The pool and the backyard were really good but unfortunately we weren’t able to get into the pool since it was really cold. It would’ve been better if the pool was heated. The management was great and helped us out throughout the check in and check out process. It’s close to the beach and in a good and safe neighborhood.

Worth Every Penny - Our family enjoyed 10 days in the Destin area, and to have this oasis to use as a “home away from home” was a delight!!! The house was clean, spacious, and lovely to stay in this week!!

Nice time! - Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: House was great. 3 couples with no kids had plenty of space. Would have been able to accommodate kids too if we wanted to bring them. Would stay here again.

Mar 19, 2019

This house was perfect for our extended family. - We loved this house! It was very well stocked and clean. The kids had a great time in the pool. We would definitely rent this property again when we are in the Destin area.

Destin beach house - Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The home size and decor exceeded my expectation. The location is good but if you are using uber the address is difficult for drivers to find even when your location is pinned, not sure why this is. The kitchen is nice but could use more pans to cook in and the knobs were missing on stove. Pool area is great and I would just suggest having a covered trash can out there to aid in cleaning up.Easy walk to the beach and to a couple of restaurants.The bed in the main floor bedroom was really uncomfortable. With that being said we enjoyed our stay in destin!
