Guestbook comments from the manager

My girlfriends and I had a lovely time at this wonderful location. We loved being able to walk down to the beach whenever we wanted. The view from the balcony was superb. The condominium suited our needs perfectly, and I will definitely consider this location again in the future.

average rating of 3.45 based on 25 reviews

It’s right on the beach, just a boardwalk away so we loved that! We enjoyed our stay overall.

  • 3 of 5

The security and the cleanliness of the facility were great! The only complaint I would have is the couches in the living area are outside furniture so they are not comfortable at all. Also, the king bed frame felt like it was going to break if you turned hard in your sleep.

We had a blast on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family down for a late Spring Break. This is how our vacation went: every morning we walked out to the beach, then lunch by the pool, then back to beach, then dinner, then bed. Next day, repeat! I could do that forever! Will be back next year. Thank you.

Pros - Beautiful view and wonderful location the beach being just a short walking distance away

  • 1 of 5

Cons - Probably too many to list, but I’ll try! The short version is that this room is atrocious and should be an embarrassment to this management company!! The cons FAR outweigh the pros! Read the negative reviews and believe them! They are 100% correct! The place is extremely outdated with outdoor patio furniture for the couch and chairs - it hurts your back to sit in these! There are several electrical outlets that don’t work, the master bedroom’s TV only plays one channel and it’s a music channel. And the grand prize winner is the so called master bedroom bed or lack thereof!!! It needs to be burned and never slept on again! Here’s the best part!!! I called in advance MULTIPLE TIMES and specifically asked about all the negative reviews about it and whether this issue was corrected. I had to keep calling because my promised return calls never came! Finally one did and she was defensive and said that she counted 3 negative reviews!! There were MUCH MORE THAN THAT!! However, it was actually around 10 or so!!! The frame is old and very shaky and squeaks so loud with any tiny move! And the mattress - what a complete joke!! It is completely worn out and has probably been that way for 10 years or more. They have placed a huge piece of foam over it in an attempt to make it compensate for the lack of a mattress! It absolutely kills a person’s back if you are brave enough to sleep on it!! Management assured me in one of my advance calls that if the mattress was bad, then it will be a quick fix!! Yea right!!! In my opinion, either the owner is extremely cheap or simply doesn’t care! He or she has to be aware of it if they ever read the reviews for this room. And if it’s not the owner, then it has to be the management company because they absolutely have to be more than aware of this!! Even if they are completely blind, then my repeated advance calls surely brought it out loud and clear!!! I hoped like crazy that they actually took care of this because of my many calls!! But my concerns turned out to be a nightmare!! I spent all this money to stay in a room that belongs in a trailer park rather than a beautifully located condo!!

Owner's Response: Brian, we apologize for the issues you experienced, but wanted to let you know these were not overlooked by our Property Management Team and owner. The unit has been deep cleaned which is a thorough cleaning of everything. The bed frame in the MBR has been inspected and the frame tightened. Your opinion of the outdated furniture and comfort of the MBR mattress is a subjective view. However, a new mattress topper was added to the bed and all the electrical outlets were repaired. One final note – our Property Management Team and owner of this condo CARES IMMENSELY about our guests and property. Thank you for your feedback.

Ants all around.

  • 1 of 5

There were a lot of issues with the condo's upkeep. The second bathroom tub would not drain. There was a rally bad ant infestation. No laundry facilities in the unit. The Master Bed was about to fall over. Overall on of our worst stays in a long time.

Owner's Response: Hi Raoof, we hope you enjoyed the gorgeous Gulf view from your private balcony, the easy access to the beach and the numerous amenities of this property including pools, fitness center and community room. We wish you would have contacted us regarding the ants and we would have sent someone to take care of this. We are sorry for your disappointment, but our advertisement does not state this unit has a laundry facility. The MBR bed has been inspected and the frame repaired. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.
