We had the upstairs with the front balcony. Our family enjoyed every moment there. It is convenient to the beach and boardwalk. It has been several years since out stay there and am glad it hasn't been taken over by a big hotel chain. It is totally charming and the owners warm and welcoming. I will be calling to see...

My last visit was not in April of 2016 but in April 2008. The owners are friends of distant family members of mine I used to to go there every year for spring break. It truly was the most beautiful place to stay during our time out of school. It's right across the street from the beach. The apartments are...

Miss Joy is simply a wonderful hostess. She and her family own, run, maintain this quaint property with warmth and pride. While there she went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We booked a quick labor day getaway with our Shi-poo and enjoyed it immensely. The unit is an "apartment" with 2 separate bedrooms, with double beds,...

My family has stayed at the Joy Lee Apartments for years. The first thing you should know about this property is that it is old, so don't expect a five-diamond resort. You will be disappointed. What you will find at the Joy Lee are spacious apartments that are clean and exceptionally affordable. The location is ideal: situated right between the...

We recently reserved a room at the Joy Lee for the Carolina Beach Music Festival for my husband and another couple. Not the first time for me, as I come usually every year with my best friends and we ALWAYS book from Joy Lee! But my husband and his friends also enjoyed staying here and the home feeling you get...

The owner is very sweet and willing to work with you as much as she can. She allows you to bring your pets. Which is what made us decide to stay with her. Our 2 cats are like kids to us. So it was nice to find someone finally willing to let us bring them with us. There are very...
