Impossible to sleep at night

  • 2 of 5

We just checked out and doubt we will ever stay there again. It's unfortunate because the place was clean, well equipped with everything we needed during our stay. There was a strong odor when you first walk in and then you get used to it (until you leave and come back again). The biggest and most important issue we had was at night. The building is old and the structure of the building is NOT steady enough to withhold the regular movements of the upstairs tenants (they live there with a young boy and three large dogs). Every footstep both from the humans and the nails of the dogs are loud enough to feel as though the sealing was going to colapse. The worst part of the noise was between 12:00am and 6:30am. We jumped out of our bed several times at night thinking the roof was going to collapse. Again, I can deal with uncomfortable mattresses and anything else, but not being able to rest on our vacation is non negotiable. I can't recommend this condo based on that alone.

Never again

  • 2 of 5

First I would like to mention I gave RealJoy an opportunity to respond to my feedback before posting but heard nothing from them. We had so many problems from not getting access info to the condo to plumbing problems causing us not to be able to cook and wash dishes. The upstairs neighbors stomped literally all day and night! Coffee pot was broken, fridge was thought to be broken after I bought a house full of groceries, finally had to move it out to plug it back in. Not a good company to work with and not a good rental for a relaxing vacation

We rented this condo for a family vacation with our children. It was appeasing when we saw there were 3 pools, a basketball court, tennis courts, and a three minute walk to the beach. However, the pools and courts were very run down and the beach is actually 1 mile away. The condo was dirty and outdated and was not in the condition shown on the website. This stay was very disappointing.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I am very satisfied with the condo we rented. The location was near everything, the apartment has all the commodities to spend a good vacation, was very clean and well distributed. All the codes worked perfectly and we did not have a single mechanical issue while we were there. Very recommended

Satisfactory stay

  • 3 of 5

This condo was clean and fairly close to the beach. The only thing we didn't like was the sofa sleeper did not have sheets, or blankets for the kids to sleep on. And the garbage bin would not slid in or out, these are small things but did cause us some problems. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook with and the beds sleep nice. Would like to go back but would stay right on the beach next time tho.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We wish you had contacted us about the sheets for the sleeper sofa. That should have been provided for you and we would've been happy to bring some by. We hope you will join us again, thanks for letting us know about your stay!
