Guestbook comments from the manager

I would definitely recommend this house to others. It was a great deal and you could walk to the beach. The open concept made it easy to enjoy everyone's company but the house still felt private with 3 separate bedrooms. It was clean and comfortable.

Had a wonderful time.

  • 4 of 5

The house is wonderful and in a great location. The front porch is a perfect place for a morning cup of coffee and visits with friends. Plenty of room for 6 people but don't count on the sofa bed for extra sleeping unless you're OK with a very thin pad and a bar across your back. Ouch! We'll be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of our cottage. We also love morning coffee on the porch! And friends make it even better. We are sorry to hear the sofa bed wasn't as comfortable as you'd like. Thank you for staying with Real Joy and hope to see you again soon!

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

House was very nice and clean. Driveway a little narrow for my big truck. Quiet neighborhood. Pool area was clean and well kept. Only downside was the closest beach area was all roped off for private beaches. Best option for beach was State Park. Would definitely stay here again.

Very clean and perfect location to the beach and shopping

  • 4 of 5

We just loved the home and it was very clean. It had everything you need to cook a meal also.

My only complaint is the queen size mattress was so bad. My son that is a eagle scout and camps all the time had the worst

night sleep. After four nights he slept on the coach. Would rent again only if they got a new mattress.
