Great staff, clean property, beach access only a walkway across the dunes from the beach. Children friendly. Lots of parking, I love the fact they have your beach chairs set up for you. One of their pools is heated so it makes for a great fall or spring getaway. We have stayed

Vacation nightmare, steer clear of REALJOY Vacations. The experience here was HORRIBLE and I travel quite often (both business and personal trips). Upon checking in, there were clothing tags left on the carpet in the master bedroom from the prior guest's stay. The comforter

Unit was overall clean. A bit older and needed updating. No musty smell though. There was a large bug in our closest the first night. I felt the management could have handled that better. WiFi was great. Beach views from the balcony were fabulous!

I am surprised that you feel Unit 701 is in need of updating. The owners just replaced the flooring and furniture in both bedrooms, have a walk-in shower in the master bathroom and upgraded their kitchen. If you told the front desk about the bug, the message was not relayed to me and I am very sorry about that. We have new WiFi service this year and completely love it, along with our balcony views. We would love for you to come back to visit us in the near future!

"Get the gulf view"
"3rd floor or higher if you want a great view!"
"Stay away from rooms next to the elevators and rooms 1- 9 on each floor look out over the beach where the cabanas are."
"Rooms on east side face the ocean. 409, 509, etc are the 1st ones off the elevator & are at the end over the pool."
"Don"t BOOK during construction!!!!! Wish someone had let us know!!!!!"
