Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Our unit was the perfect size for our family vacation. Thank you for providing all necessities. Great location. Only negative was the full size bed was not very comfortable for myself and husband. I would recommend it for a teenager or child. Other then that it was perfect.

First family vacation to Florida

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just right for my family of 4 and my brother's family of 4. We had enough space and privacy. It was clean, it had everything we needed for our stay. It was quite, we could not hear our neighbors.

My kids said it felt like they were at home.

The only recommendation I have, is to install some kind of shades for the sliding doors, and master bedroom, because the beautiful Florida Sun does shine very bright in the morning, waking everybody up early. Which was ok with the adults, not so much with the kids. Everything is close by, walk to the beach, which was the best part, short drive everywhere else.

On the way home we stayed in a hotel overnight, and my son said "I liked the condo better".

Our overall experience was great. We are make plans to stay here again next year. Thank you Sea Oats and Real Joy for making our vacation worry free.

Great location: bad condo upkeep

  • 2 of 5

We arrived on a Monday to find that not only was the air not working in the condo, but the refrigerator was also not cooling properly and the freezer was not making ice. We called immediately around 4 o'clock and a repair man didn't arrive until around 930 to fix the air. No one came to fix the fridge so we put our groceries in a cooler. The next morning the fridge seemed to be working better so we assumed that it had been unplugged before we arrived and put our groceries inside. Came back from the beach on Wednesday to find that the shrimp we had bought plus milk and yogurt for our babies had all ruined. Someone came to fix the refrigerator but we have not heard from the company regarding any compensation for groceries that were lost. Also after speaking with one of the three repairmen that can through the week, we learned that the refridgerator in this same condo had been having problems previously. Disappointed that this condo was in such a great location but obviously had not been kept up well. We will not be booking through real joy again.
