“A gem”

“I stayed here in 2006..we arrived without reservations hoping to find a place to stay and stumbled upon this gem. It is not right on the beach, but you just have to cross the street to get there. I can’t describe how quaint it was, but I have the fondest memories of it. EXTREMELY CLEAN and WELL KEPT, but not updated in a manner that causes it’s charm to be lost. There is a great pool that is in back of the main building and the owners were gracious and helpful.”

“It feels just like being at home with family”

“What a wonderful place to stay, always wonderfully friendly staff, clean room and pool. And great place for the family or for a quiet couple getaway. I love it there. And I didnt use to be a big fan of the beach. But after staying here I love to go….it feels just like being at home with family.”

“Quaint, fun and wonderful beds”

“If you are looking for a quaint, clean, fun place to stay in Carolina Beach. Look no further the Joy Lee Apartments is your place. The beds are wonderfully comfortable. The building is old, but they are decorated very cute. The layout of the property gives you a very comfortable oasis feeling. The location could not be any better. A 5 minute walk and everything is available.”

“Love these Apartments”

5 of 5 starsReviewed July 9, 2012

“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 from staying in these apts. Everything is within walking distants, and there is a excellent restuarant right behind the motel that you can enjoy waterfront dining, we ate there both nights. We love the Joy Lee and will alway book with her when staying at Carolina Beach.”

“Just like having your own private beach oasis! And PET FRIENDLY!!!”

“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 few places that accept cats. Alot of places accepts dogs but not cats. Thank you Joy Lee Apartments for allowing cats. Beware some beds in some of the suites small pets can get under and hide in them or between the wall and the bed. So do not panic just lift the bed up and get your pet out. Her apartments are very beautifully decorated and consists of 2 bedrooms, kitchen (stove, full size refrigerators, table, sink and all the utensils, cook ware, etc.)- NO DISHWASHER for those that need one we prefer the old fashioned method, and of course bathroom with shower only (shower is a one person with AWESOME pressure and massage head on it). You have a private front porch and back porch with rockers and chairs. She has a private dock that she will let you fish off of for the days when the pier is to crowded or when you want to be close to your room. She even has fish cleaning station close to your room with a sink and running water to it. There is a swimming pool to swim in the summer too. The suites can sleep up to 6 people-2 per bed and 1 per handmade day bed/couch per bedroom. She has cottages that you can stay in to but the cottages close in the winter due to no heat in them but the suites are open year around. Another plus was how clean the rooms were no stale musty odors like you find at other places and NO BUGS!!!!! Her place was very easy to find once you arrive in Carolina Beach. We will be back later this year. We love how peaceful it is at night at her place and can not wait to be there again. I will post more pics of Joy Lee apartments later this year. I’ll try to get pics of the pool, fish cleaning aera, bathroom, and more of the suites to help other vacationers out.”
