"Beautiful view and loved the heated pool! - The property was wonderful. Clean, great setup, lots of room, great location to restaurants and activities and being a bit cool in April, the heated pool allowed us to enjoy the water when the ocean was too cold to enjoy. My only complaint was with communication, or lack thereof. When we checked in at exactly the allowed time of 4pm, the ac wasn’t working. It took 12+ phone calls and hours to finally get someone to return a call. Things turned around once we finally got to talk to someone. Communication could have been more frequent so we knew what the plan was but ultimately it got fixed 2 days later. Thankfully it wasn’t middle of the summer! Kat with RealJoy was very kind in trying to make things comfortable for us until it was fixed and even brought a small bag of goodies afterwards. Overall, the trip was amazing and we had a fantastic time!"

"Just as advertised - Had a great stay at this condo. Everything you need is in the room and the photos are a spot on depiction of what you are renting. Great location near grocery/liquor stores, attractions and souvenir shops. Would definitely stay here again if it were available."

"Destin beach vacation - Perfect spot for families. Lovely unit, wonderful views, nice and quiet. My only complaint was the Wi-Fi was not working even after we were told it was fixed. I also wished they would leave cleaning supplies(garbage bags, kitchen counter spray) in the unit, to wipe up counters and such after cooking/eating. We had to buy our own and ended up leaving them there."

"Exceptional - There are no comments available for this review"

"Pleased with the condo!! - The condo looked just like the pictures! It was clean, No complaints there! No one bothers you! The only thing I would recommend is making the front desk more knowledgeable when asking a simple question as far as "do I need to tell anybody or sign anything when I check out". She didn't know and directed me to call realjoy where I booked through to ask. I walked straight down to the HOA office and the man on duty quickly answered with nope just be checked out on time. Another heads up to anyone who rents a condo for the week double check that your condo doesn't come with beach chairs before you rent them at the beach in front of the condos because the people renting chairs will not tell you if they come with your room. Only CERTAIN ROOMS come with chairs included. The guy renting chairs basically told me if people find out that their room comes with chairs and ask to be reimbursed they will reimburse them. That to me just seems wrong. When I asked if they came with my room because I wasn't sure he quickly opened and closed his clipboard saying no. He then proceeded to tell me that he could not tell me what rooms game with chairs. At that point I was just like whatever, it is what it is. We planned on renting them for the week anyways I just wanted to give future renters a heads up so they don't waste money for nothing. Overall though our stay was wonderful at this condo. If I were ever to decide to visit Destin again this is where I would stay. The water is beautiful but Destin itself is a little busier than what we like."

"Great getaway that had it all - We were looking to get away from work and school and this vacation did the job. We were so happy to have a perfect view of the beach, including an angle that allowed us to watch the sunset from our balcony. The pool was just the right temperature, the hit tub was awesome. Thanks for a great place that matched the pictures and descriptions!"

"Friends Getaway - The condo looked just like the pictures online and it was stocked well with appliances and dishes. There was a sweet gift upon our arrival. Super easy check in (and I'm sorry that I didn't check my email to see what I needed to do for check out - letting housekeeping know we left super early). The heated pool was our favorite spot. and the beach was beautiful. It was centrally located to many restaurants and stores. There were 4 of us and the space was perfect. We would definitely stay in this condo again."

"Clean, cozy, condo with a view. It has it all. - Honestly, this is probably the cleanest condo/hotel room I’ve ever stayed at. I was really impressed! Comfy beds - I like that they have technically 4 beds. (One king, twin, bunk with a full size below.) It’s surprisingly hard to find places that have that many separate beds. Nice showers. Big tv in living room and tv in each bedroom. Bonus- they have Netflix. It’s right on the beach and the view is amazing. I love that they have a section of the beach that is private just for guests in this condominium. It was quiet. Didn’t hear other guests making noise. This place has it all. The only negative would be that they advertise free daily activities to local attractions. When I called the company giving the coupons, they said they no longer partner with Real Joy. Also, I did email a couple of questions and did not get a response. But, when I called, they were very helpful. So call them rather than email. Would definitely stay here again."
