Great location

  • 3 of 5

The location of the beach is wonderful, just a quick maybe 2-3 minute stroll from condo to sand. Wonderful for families with children. The facility kept up nicely. Needs some sprucing up in areas like power washing the siding, cement, etc. But overall, clean. The condo we stayed in was on the third floor, and it actually had a view of the ocean. It was only partial though because the palm trees obstructed most of the view. I adore the trees, but feel they could be trimmed to take in the breathtaking view of the ocean. When first entering the condo, my first impression was it was cute. I would change the paint choices in the bedroom and bathroom though. It was a perfect size for a family of 5. More time was needed on the cleaning though. I feel not enough was spent on it and for the price that is charged for cleaning I don't feel much effort was focused on that area. I went and rewashed the countertops, and such just for my own peace of mind. It needed some wiping down of the baseboards, cleaning of the cabinet doors, light fixtures, and etc. Just a could old scrub down. The bedroom was ok, but the bed absolutely sucked! Sorry to be so blunt, but it sagged in the middle. You would literally roll to the middle. For someone who has a bad back it was awful. I was up every couple of hours. I was very disappointed that it was in the shape it was in! It needs replaced IMMEDIATELY! The unit has a washer and dryer, which is such a plus. It meant less packing and I always look for this amenity in a condo. But, the first time I used the dryer it started making an awful high-pitch noise after a couple minutes of using it that I immediately turned it off and texted the rental company, Real Joy. I sent three different texts with no response so the following morning I called the number I was given and left a message and after a couple hours still never heard anything so I called again and finally got someone and they dispatched service guy to look at it. So thinking it was fixed I tried it again because we only packed a few clothes and needed to wash towels and such and same thing. The noise was so awful, but I used it anyways. Although, the location was great, the communication or I should say lack of wasn't the best. Overall, I would give it a 3 out 5. Most coming from location and the view of the ocean.

We stayed in 303 with our 4 children ages 5-8. It was the perfect amount of room for us. It was SPOTLESS when we arrived. The only problem was there was no DVD player in the living room. After a quick email, someone knocked on the door to deliver one. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!

Few things needs fixed!

  • 3 of 5

The condo was great, except for the Queen size bed, you laid in the bed and there was a sinking hole!

The bathtub didn't drain well.

Other than those two things, the place was great.

The view off the patio was awesome!!

If they would take care of those two things, would love to go back again.

Hope Sayler

Owner's Response: Hi Hope, thank you for your feedback. We assessed the Queen sized bed and found that the bed frame needed to be repaired. We have already corrected that issue. This is the first comment we've received about the tub drain so we will have it tested as soon as the current guests check out. We're very happy you enjoyed the view from the patio and hope you were able to take advantage of the easy beach access, the pool/hot tub and the RealJOY Fun Pass. Thank you for staying with us-

Not Impressed - stayed many years in this condo complex!

  • 1 of 5

We have been staying in this complex for 15 years. I was very disappointed in this condo. It was over all "picked up and wiped down" but dirty. There was no pillow protectors on the dirty lump pillows, no bed mattress protectors or mattress covers on the mattresses and the vents were very gross. The kitchen had new counter tops and a new frig but just painted and that is all. The view was great but for the price it should have been cleaner. Very disappointed in the condo.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you were disappointed. Our inspector assessed the condo and there was a mattress protector on the bed. Now that we are are aware of the vent covers attracting dust, we've added vacuuming them to our cleaning crew checklist so that it will be done for future guests. It isn't common to find pillow protectors in a vacation rental, they can be picked up for a few dollars at Walmart and many other stores, and we highly recommend taking them with you when you travel. We hope you were able to enjoy the fantastic view, the easy access to the beach, the pool/hot tub and that you will give us another chance in the future.

Nice Condo

  • 3 of 5

This condo was perfect for a family of 4. The kids absolutely loved the bunk beds. The bed in the bedroom was a full-size, not a queen as listed and the dryer did not work properly. I took over 2 hours to dry 4 small beach towels. The view was amazing. I would definitely book this condo again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, we're glad you enjoyed the view! We double checked the size of the bed and it is indeed a Queen sized bed. Thank you for letting us know about the dryer. We will have an inspector check the dryer and see if needs to be repaired after the current guests depart. Thank you for staying with us and thank you for the feedback on your trip!

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in 303 and were very pleased with the condo. It was on the 3rd floor but it was good exercise since most of the time we over eat while on vacation. The condo was very clean and tidy with all the comforts of home. Very enjoyable stay!!! Easy check in and check out!! Thanks RealJoy!!!
