We have a been dissatisfied/disappointed with this trip. First the gun that was left in the closet that one of the kids could have found to the beach area that was such a small square to have on the beach for all the people who rents these house was horrible. Parking should have been explained better. we was told there would be extra parking at an over flow parking space and 2 times I called and talked about the over flow space and even ask could we park our boat the our boat trailer in it and they said no hoa will not allow it. then on the day we got there we was told the over flow space didnt exist and we could park our vehicles in a public parking lot. Ridiculous We would have booked another home if we would have known ..the grounds had a horrible smell that my mother and dad left the guest house 2 days early very unhappy. thankfully we brought the boat and found our own beach. We travel every year sometimes twice a year. this is the first time in 10 yrs I have just had to apologize to my family for this vacation
This house was a great house for my salons beach retreat. BUT There was a lot of things that needed attention inside the house.washing machine, bathroom fixtures , dining table was not sturdy,dishes and utensils were spotty .. the closest Beach access is so tiny and was so crowded when we were there for the holiday had to walk a little further distance but wasn’t a bad location overall.
Hi Melanie, we're happy you found the house great for your retreat and the location good. We hope your group enjoyed the private pool and separate carriage house. We're sorry to hear about the issues you experienced, but thank you for reporting them on your departure. We assessed the washer & a repairman is scheduled to replace the switches on it and we have taken care of the other items as well. Unfortunately, we can't control how crowded the beaches are but it sounds like you just walked a little further & made the best of it. Thank you for your feedback & thank you for staying with Real Joy.
Great Beach House!
We had a great time at this beach house, it was so close to the beach, just a quick walk across the street, the pool in the back yard was awesome for the kids, although we could not figure out how to turn on the pool light..otherwise the house was very clean, very big, it had enough room to fit our entire group, I have no complaints at all, and I'm sure we will be back in the future!
Thank you for your review on your stay at this spacious home! We're happy to hear you found it clean and the kids enjoyed the private pool! Thank you again for your feedback and thank you for staying with Real Joy!
Great location, however, requires some maintenance to the property.
The address that was listed was incorrect. It was listed as 2717 old hwy 98, but it’s really 2719 old hwy road. We still figured it out when we got there so it wasn’t too big of a deal. Upon arrival, we noticed that the stove was chipped and had cracks in one of the corners. Later in the night, when it was time to bring the kids upstairs for bed, as we were going upstairs, one of the two year old almost fell off the second floor due to one of the railings not screwed to the top railing. He barely touched the railing and the stick just fell over to the first floor. We looked and saw that there wasn’t even a screw in that rail. If it wasn’t for us holding him as he was walking upstairs, he really would have fallen off. We waited till the morning time to call them to have someone come and service the stairs. We noticed that most of those railings required tightening, they were all very loose, so for the remaining of the stay, we had to use a bed sheet and some towels to block off the railings. The next morning we called maintenance to have it serviced, and asked if we can have an expected time someone can come. The person answering the phone sounded very unconcerning, even after mentioning a two year old nearly fell off the second floor, and said no they couldn’t give me an expected time because they are on a schedule so they don’t know when someone will get there. I had to tell her, to make sure to put an urgent note on it and have someone to come out ASAP bc it would be a big liability if the two year old actually fell from the second floor. I called them at around 8 am and they came out at around 9am, which isn’t too bad, thankfully.
Beside from all of the problems we’ve encountered, the distance to the beach was great. The kids enjoyed the pool as well. We MAY consider coming back IF they would fix those hazardous issues.
Hi Janet, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay. We’re happy to hear you found the location great and the kids enjoyed the private pool. We did some checking and found that a technician came the same day and tightened the railings and replaced the bulbs in the refrigerator and found it to be in working order. Again, thank you for your feedback.
Very nice house with near beach access
This was a nice clean house with lots of amenities, including a private pool, carriage house and close access to the beach.

Nice house, friendly management staff, long walk to the beach
The rooms and design of the house were as pictured. The management staff was very friendly and responsive with questions/issues that arose. The walk to the beach was more involved than the listing indicated, which was a large part of why we spent as much as we did to rent this house. That was a big let down. Otherwise the pool was lovely, the house was spacious, and we had a great vacation.
Hi Dani, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay. We're happy to hear you found the home spacious and pool lovely. The closest beach access is 500ft at Shirah St. We're sorry that there was any confusion with this and the inconvenience it may have caused. Again, thank you for your feedback.
