Very Pleasant stay!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, quiet location. Decent view. Only downside was having to wait for the elevator to come down from 7th floor all the time... Word is the building owners live on 7th floor and have it set to return there.

Communication from the RealJoy folks was a bit lacking. I never received the 'welcome packet' that had things like parking passes, door codes, etc. So I had to call in several times for information. (told them I never received it, but they never re-sent it either).

Overall: happy with the stay!

Nice property.

  • 4 of 5

All in all the property is very nice. Some claim for it to be dated but we didnt have any issues, kinda brought it back that life is simple. Only issue we had were the the window treatments. At night they were see through so security and privacy was not the best. Our suggestion would be a simple upgrade and the property would have been a 5 in my books.

Older unit but clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Each bedroom has a king sized bed and they were comfortable. The unit and furnishings / fixtures / lamps were a little older, but it was clean. A couple of the towel bars were loose and the lamps in the bedroom were a little rickety. They provide plenty of bath towels. The kitchen appliances were newer and nice. The door has a keypad lock which is nice because you do not have to keep track of keys. There is coin-operated laundry on site. The parking is close by and it is a short walk to the pool and beach. We could sometimes see dolphins from our balcony.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review about your stay at this ideally situated condo! Being able to enjoy gulf views where you could see dolphins and then relax in comfortable King Size beds sounds heavenly! We are happy you were able to enjoy the convenience of the nearby parking lot and short walks to the pool and beach! Thank you for noting your few concerns, we will make sure to communicate those with our property management team. We appreciate your feedback and want to thank you for staying with Real Joy.

We got an email about 10 days before our trip saying the fire Dept had closed the condo until further notice. They wouldn't credit my card back, had to send a check. It took about 10 days to get check. It was very inconvenient for us. We were to attend a wedding, we had to cancel. We had our reservation for over 4 months.

What puzzled me, is that some other guest that were attending the wedding already knew about the condo being closed down. I wonder why we didn't find out until last minute?
