Great family vacation spot.
Great cottage in super nice neighborhood only a block from beach. Spacious Cottage had everything you could want from beautiful kitchen with all the cooking utensils you need to gas grill.

Comfortable, great location
Great location. Easily fit our family of six. Wish there was an outdoor shower to wash off sand. Washer may need fixing. Didn’t get water out on spin cycle so had to dry longer in dryer.
Hi Marc. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this lovely cottage. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed the location of this unit and had plenty of space for your family of six. We will pass along your info to Ops dept. to make sure the washer is correctly working. Thanks again for your feedback and thank you for booking with Real Joy!
Cute house but needs a few repairs
We enjoyed our stay. We had a problem with the refrigerator and freezer not keeping our items cold. When I called RealJoy, they were quick to get us help. We did find the wash machine wasn't spinning the clothes out well which took longer to dry clothes and especially towels. There are several door knobs in the house that do not work well. This includes the side door near the kitchen, the door knob to the laundry room, master bedroom, and the dead bolt to go outside from the master bedroom will not lock. Even though we found these minor problems, we had a great time in the house and enjoyed our times together with family. Thank you for renting the house to us for a few days.
Hi Tina. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this great cottage. We’re happy to hear you had a great time in the house and enjoyed your time with family. We’re glad to hear that you had a quick response in regard to the refrigerator/freezer. Thanks for noting a few concerns, we will pass along this information to our operations team to make sure repairs will be made if needed. We value your referrals and hope you will come back to visit. Thank you for choosing Real Joy!
