The Joy Lee is a family-owned vacation spot that has been a landmark in Carolina Beach, North Carolina for over half a century. Designed and constructed in 1945 by Grover Lewis and named for his daughter, the apartments are still owned, managed, and loved by Joy Lee and her family.
It’s a comfortable, classic hotel steps from the beach that has been enjoyed by generations of families. The Joy Lee is a place you’ll feel at home for summer after summer.
“Entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 for its unique design, [The Joy Lee] is a forerunner of today’s condominiums.
Frequently photographed and filmed because of the arches, stylistic railings and whimsical winding steps, the architecture is a wonderful blend of art deco, mission, and prairie styles.
The atmosphere is friendly, quiet, and family oriented. The rates are reasonable. The units are clean, cozy, and comfortable. Just the way things used to be, only better!” – www.visitnc.com
