With new flooring, new furniture and new bed linens installed in January 2014, your group will enjoy a relaxing vacation in this beautiful home facing the pool in the Villages of Crystal Beach.
Calypso is a lovely 6 bedroom, 3.5 bath home that sleeps 14 and has 2 living areas and 2 spacious balconies.
Here’s the bed set-up at Calypso:
There’s a master suite on the first floor with a... king bed
On the 2nd floor is another king bedroom and a bedroom with 2 twin beds. There’s a queen sleeper sofa in the 2nd floor living room.
On the 3rdfloor are two bedrooms each with queen beds and a bedroom with 2 twin beds.
The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, tile floors and granite countertops. All bedrooms are ample size with TV/DVD players. Check out the balconies on each floor - great for breakfast and evening refreshments or just reading quietly in the afternoon. There’s a grill at the house or one in the pool area.
Located in charming Crystal Beach, which is a Seaside-like development on the east side of Destin, this highly desirable gated neighborhood has attractive, lush landscaping and is maintained in pristine condition.
It's a terrific residential area, yet close to restaurants and activities in Destin. Walk the 500 yards to the beach, or hop on the free, seasonal trolley, running from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Walk to nearby Destin Commons, which features over 75 shops and restaurants and pop-up water fountains - always popular with the kids!
The pool and spa area is unbelievable, something you'd find in a world class resort. The lagoon style pool is 30,000 square feet of gorgeous, sparkling clean water, with a walk-in area, three waterfalls, a spa, lavish landscaping, and plenty of sitting areas for your group to enjoy. It also has surround sound, a flat screen TV, grilling area and a Tiki Bar to help you relax and get in the beach groove.
Calypso also has a full sized laundry room with a washer & dryer, two parking spots in the driveway, as well as an additional overflow parking lot. This house is located right across the street from the pool. Nearby are 6 miles of paved trails - perfect for both walking or biking.

We really had an amazing time in Destin & at the Calypso condo. It was clean & very well decorated. There was plenty of room for a party of 14, we didn't feel crowded at all. The extra lounge/TV room on the 2nd floor was nice, the teenagers hungout there, while the adults gathered downstairs. Outside the front door is a grill we used quite a bit, and there is one in the pool area also. The location couldn't have been any better, there is everything you need within a mile... grocery store, farmacy, gas stations, restaurants and Bass Pro in walking distance. We enjoyed everything about the condo, and are looking forward to our next vacation, it can't come soon enough !!
Last Minute accomodations

I came to Destin, FL with a group of 13. Seven of the individuals have intellectual disabilities. We originally were supposed to book through another agency and unfortunately, when they realized who our group consisted of, they were not all too friendly. A week before heading down, I was now on the hussle to find new accomodations. Not only did RealJoy Vacations provide us with a beautiful home with ample amount of space in a wonderful neighborhood setting just across the street from an amazing community pool, they did so with a price that couldn't be beat! We stayed 5 nights and loved every minute of it. The house was wonderfully decorated and had an abundance of linens, towels and kitchenware. When we called maintence about a minor detail, it was immediately taken care of. I can not say enough great things about this house and this company. We will 100% be using them for all of our future needs! The only thing I would have changed was access to the beach. It would have been so much better to have a golf cart. However, I did see tons of information on a beach trolley during the peak season so I am sure that would more than take care of that one thing. Read more
What a nice review! We'd love to work with you again!
Trip to Destin
Left on 08/08/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Hjowens
The house had plenty of room and was nice. The ac went out on the bottom two floors the last evening there. It was a long hot last night there. We had to take this house because there was nothing else left in the Destin/Ft Walton area. We really prefer beachfront. The drive to beach was not too bad. The house was in a very convenient area but traffic is always crazy in Destin. The pool area was nice. I didn't like the grilling and porch was on front of house. We prefer more privacy. We really needed a water hose to wash off sand on our coolers, chairs, etc. It was to hard to access the faucet on side of house. Overall I would stay here again if I couldn't find anything closer to beach. Read more

we were very pleased with the house and pool area and it fit our group perfectly. was disappointed that we had to stay farther away from the beach than we normally do and the fact that there was no public beach area was no fun. we ended up packing our stuff and going the henderson state park and had alot more room to play.

Six couples, one house, terrific time! The accomodations were perfect. The beach a bit of a walk but we loaded up one time a day for the beach and took chairs and coolers no problem...via truck. Ended each day at the beautiful pool surrounded by nice people. Queen and king beds comfortable. ..twin not so much but would still go back! Also left a bag of dirty clothes. The cleaning staff found them and they were returned to me within a week! Plenty of kitchen items and bonus...lots of beach chairs! Read more
We would have gladly brought you a new grill AND a water hose from our warehouse that is 2 blocks away. a 3 star review is pretty tough for such minor problems that could have been fixed within 15 minutes of a phone call to our 24/7 management.
