Great property. Easy walk to beach

  • 3 of 5

Dislike the beach setup. There were at least five rows of beach chairs and umbrellas available for daily fee then others could set up their beach chairs behind that line. If you weren’t on the first row or two you couldn’t see the water from your chair. The condo was well equipped, beds were comfortable, and balcony was great.

The condo was nice, but the beach was very crowded.

  • 3 of 5

We had a good experience overall, the condo was spacious and everything worked pretty well. But overall the price was relatively high, probably because it was on an island. The biggest challenge was the beach that it was always crowded. If you wanted to put up your own umbrella, you had to sit behind four rows of rented umbrellas, and then you could not even see the ocean.

Air conditioner problems but great view

  • 3 of 5

As soon as we arrived it was 80+ in the condo. We immediately called the number given to us and asked for someone to come out. They sent someone about two hours later only to tell us they are going to throw some freon in it but there is a big frown leak somewhere between our condo (8th floor) and the roof top. They said that recharging it would get us through the night but they would be back the following day to find and actually fix the leak.

That never happened. They never came back. Apparently it's a slow leak because we did get through the next four days without an issue. From other reviews it seems as though they keep putting a band aid on a big problem. Which in turn people keep having AC issues when they arrive. I don't find that fair. With as much money as people are paying to stay here it would be nice if you guys would fix the issues and not have people with small children sitting in a hot condo (unless ur going to provide discounts).

With that being said. We do have small children. 1 year old and 4 year old. The carpet is DISGUSTING. They really need to put tile or hardwood in this place. We made everyone leave flip flops or socks on the entire time. But with small children who play on the floor a lot. This was very gross and seemed unsanitary.

Other than that. The house was fully equipped. Had a great view. Beds were comfy. Paint on Cabinets in kitchen (as previous reviews stated) are peeling pretty badly...but that didn't bother us as much as others.

This place has great potential to be an amazing vacation spot. Fix the carpet and get the air conditioning fixed are the two issues.

We did enjoy our vacation after the initial sweat box day when we arrived. Probably wouldn't rent again unless carpet and ac is redone. :)

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that you found the condo fully equipped, felt the beds were comfy and enjoyed the great view. This is a wonderful property with on-site café, kiddie pool, spa, hot tub and game rooms. We apologize for the AC issue. It has been repaired and the owner plans to replace the flooring and cabinet doors in the kitchen and bathrooms. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.

Great price

Great pricing for a 2 bedroom and really pretty view! Kitchen needs updating though, paint peeling a lot on the cabinets and stuff but other than that it was a pretty nice place to stay.
