Property was OK and was as advertised

  • 1 of 5

The property was OK and was as advertised. Did not seem as though the cleaning service did much to get unit ready for next renters. The refrigerator stunk like rotten fish. Management company did not respond to requests for service of the problem until too late.

The condo was perfect!

  • 4 of 5

It was directly on the beach with a beautiful view from the balcony. The sleeper sofa was broken, but a queen mattress was provided and worked out perfectly. Everything we needed for our stay was provided in the unit as mentioned. The beach chairs were not provided, but available for an additional cost. We will definitely return again! Thank you for a wonderful time!

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The only issue we had was the washer and dryer. They made loud sounds when in use. But, the balcony view definitely made up for that! You are literally steps away from the beach. It was amazing. I would definitely recommend this property. Our stay here was even more special for us because it is also where we got married! I can't imagine a more perfect place to say I Do :)

Owner's Response: Congratulations and thank you for letting us be a part of your big day! We're so glad you enjoyed the amazing view and had a great stay here. We will mention the noise from the washer and dryer to the owners. Thank for your feedback and thank you for staying with Real Joy.

My first review

  • 2 of 5

If you want a "bed on the beach" this is what you get. The rest of the stay was not quite what we expected. Upon checking in my daughter went to take a shower and, the first of only 4 towels ( for 3 adults as we registered) had somebody else's hair still on it. She went to take a shower and the hot water knob had rusted into, with a hole big enough to put a quarter in it, scraped her fingers. This just didn't happen over night! The floors were tile and hardwood and were still so dirty our feet were black with dirt, with in minutes of walking on them. We had to wear socks the entire stay. My wife had to wash the (4) towels we were given each day, and when she went to dry them, the bearing was out in the dryer and an ear piercing sound, that sounded like a squeeling pig, was what we had to listen to for the entire time we used it. The screen door was leaning up against the patio door when we arrived. It fell off, so we laid it along the wall. The couch and chair were stained, so we laid a bed sheet on them to have a place to sit while we were there. The location is great, the unit just needs some obvious attention.

The free golf was great.

My wife and I come down 2-3 times a year and are looking for a condo we can rent each visit. This will not be the place.
