I can stay here forever...

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this location. The kitchen was FULLY equipped, the rooms/bathrooms were clean, the beach access was WONDERFUL, there was ample parking space, etc. For the price and location, I thought this place was a great deal. RealJoy also provided some offers, such as 1 free adult admission to a dolphin cruise (which we used and it was awesome). I did notice the sewage smell from the bathroom that others mentioned, but I only smelled it during certain hours in the daytime and even then I barely noticed it unless I was in the bathroom. I hope to book here again in the future!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located in an ideal spot. Its within blocks of stores and restaurants, yet is beachfront. Its a short drive to the harbor where you can take a dolphin cruise, fishing charter, parasail,etc. The only thing to complain about is that there is a sewer smell that comes up in the morning. We found if you close the bathroom doors, its not that bad. They do not allow you to use your own grill unless you take it to the patio where their grill is. I would highly recommend this condo and hope to return someday soon.

Very outdated, dirty definitely not worth the money sewer smell

  • 1 of 5

Good location but this unit needs to be updated if you want to get a premium price. Cabinets were dirty as well as the rest of the unit, bunk beds you may as well slept on a board we had to go buy air mattresses at Walmart just overall very outdated. The sewer smell remained after I made the extra effort to call and make sure it was fixed as it said it was back in September of 2016. I called Real Joy and they sent someone over with a spray deodorizer are you kidding me??? Lots of money for 5 days and they give me deodorizer. Then they sent in a plumber who said it was the wax ring on the toilet??? So we sat around for an hour to let him replace a wax ring that was not the problem but I guess they had to come up with something??The smell was coming from the entire drain system when you wash clothes it stinks the toilet area stinks and moves into the bedroom area. I did not drive 14 hours to vacation with my wife and kids and spend a bunch of money to stay in a condo that smells like a sewer. I personally would not put this place out on VRBO as a great place to stay and have my guests have an experience as we did. Extremely disappointing but it does have a great beach just like the other miles that have much better units than this one go spend your money at one of those places. Would have gave zero stars but that is not an option!!

Beach and access *Perfect*... Condo *SoSo*

  • 2 of 5

The beach and access to the beach was perfect!! Beautiful sand and water!! However, the company over the condo (RealJoy), and the condo itself, not so. They charge you a mandatory $25/day beach chair and umbrella setup fee, which would be fine if you were only charged for the days you actually use the service. You're charged whether you use it or not. You're charged the fee for your first day, although check-in time is at 4pm, and by that time the chairs and umbrellas have been taken up. So you're paying for a service that you couldn't possible use the first day, unless you're willing to pay the $300 early check-in fee so that you can get use of your $25 beach service for that day. Also, I would think that RealJoy would offer some kind of discounts or incentives to it's repeat customers... NOT... The condo is okay for the most part, but not nearly worth the price charged/paid for renting it. The TV in the living room / dining room area is way too small. Binoculars are needed to see it from the couch on the opposite side of the room. The stove isn't balanced. It's slanted at about a 45 degree angle to the back, so whatever you cook on it is going to be slanted in the pot/pan towards the back of the stove. For the most part the condo is mediocre at most, with a superior price tag. The easy access to the beach, and the view are the only things that make this condo worthwhile.....
