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... More
