average rating of 3.857143 based on 7 reviews

Condo was nicely furnished but is soon in need of a refresh. Bath fixtures are dated/showing wear.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was adequately furnished, but is soon in need of a refresh at the price rate it’s in. TV’s aren’t flat screens, bath fixtures showing wear and age, couch needs replaced, no sitting chair in large bedroom to enjoy the view. Taking all this into account - some form of perk would have been nice to sweeten the stay. Rental agents were always very helpful when called upon. Nothing fancy— but the view from the balcony could not be beat.

Location was nice. Great view of ocean. Plenty of space. But they had a bug problem. Killed a coach roach as soon as we arrived and RealJoy never responded to my concern.

Had a wonderful visit and will return!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at at this condo. We were blessed with beautiful weather while we were there and loved being right on the beach. This condo met our needs very well and we will definitely look to rent it again when we plan our next visit to the area. Since we were visiting at an off-peak time of year, the building was undergoing some renovations which really didn't impede us much. We were treated very well by RealJoy Vacation rentals and especially by Chris who made sure we had everything we needed. (Only one small detail needs to be added that I hesitate to include but we wish we would have known....the master bathroom is accessible from the bedroom (that's great)-BUT does not have a door of any kind, so it is open to the bedroom. Next time we will take a spring rod and shower curtain to put up for privacy so that the other person is not locked out of the bedroom if someone is using the bathroom. *blush*)

Beautiful View, Needs TLC

  • 3 of 5

This condo lacked some TLC.

The master bathroom towel rack was broken, the toaster didn't work, there was no wi-fi, and limited hot water. We had to take the one of the TV's (tube, box style) off the dresser, as it was top heavy and if you opened a drawer the TV would fall (not good when you are traveling with children). The legs on the deck chairs were rusted (uneven and potentially could break) so we were not able to sit on them to enjoy the view.

The condo was clean, very quiet, and a great location. The master bedroom was huge. The condo had perfect access to the beach.

Owner's Response: Hi Jory, we are glad you enjoyed this gorgeous and spacious Gulf front condo and the easy access to the beach. We do not have a record of you contacting us regarding these issues. We wish we’d had the opportunity to take care of those items so you could have had a more enjoyable stay All items were referred to our property management team and the patio chairs have been replaced. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.

Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice stay in this condo. The ocean views were great! The keyless entry was very convenient so we didn't have to keep up with keys. The condo was decorated nicely, and the only things I would recommend updating are the TV's, but we didn't watch that much TV so it was fine. The master bedroom was huge and had a large window overlooking the ocean, and access to the balcony. The washer and dryer were nice to have in the unit as well. We really enjoyed our time here and would definitely come back.
