The move in process was simple and quick. Angela was always ready to answer my questions and was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. My apartment was clean and all the appliances were functional.

      It has been really well maintained. The space is clean and safe. Maintenance requests have always been completed on time. The neighborhood is family oriented and safe. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice and simple neighborhood.

        I only have praise for the office staff, my wife and I were very well attended, nothing like the other condominiums. I am super satisfied with the apartment. The whole team is to be congratulated! I always recommend this condo to friends.

              We are sorry to see that your experience at Pleasure Bay has not lived up to your expectations. We have spoken with our knowledgeable and professional on-site Property Manager, who has been with us for many years, and she sincerely apologizes to your friend if they did not feel comfortable during their visit to the community. Angela stated that there was a communication problem and they were using Google Translate on a cell phone. This is never ideal because it is difficult to have a conversation and be certain that the translation is correct and completely understood. We assure you, Angela would never mistreat anyone - she has always treated both valued and prospective Residents attentively and courteously. Additionally, it is our understanding that your maintenance concern was resolved - if a problem still exists, please contact the on-site office or put in a service request through the online portal, whichever is easiest for you. (Please remember not to request emergency maintenance through the portal...thanks!) We are pleased to say the pool company is diligently working on the pool and we anticipate it being cleared up and open very soon! We are not sure what you mean but we can assure you there are not 200 vans in the parking lots nor is anyone raising chickens in their apartment homes. (We did have a Resident have a visitor who brought a chicken however, we quickly told them this is not permitted in the community and the issue was resolved.) Please never hesitate to contact the on-site office - they are always more than happy to help! Thank you for choosing to make your home at Pleasure Bay. JCMLiving Resident Services Team

              Hmm, only shows max $2000, yet we pay $2600 a month for a one bedroom with radiators that are coming out of the walls, AC units that are filled with mold, cockroaches when we moved in, unfinished parts of the kitchen, and uneven floors. Walls… See More >

                Diana, We are very sorry to see another negative review from you. We are uncertain as to what you refer to when you say "only shows a max $2000, yet we pay $2600 a month". Our rental rates adjust daily based on a number of factors including but not limited to availability, competitor pricing, demand for apartments, and style (classic or renovated). We assure you, we do not discuss with one resident what another has done, nor do we play favorites - all of our residents are treated the same. Thank you, JCMLiving Resident Services Team

                                            Love it. Upgraded after 2 years to a larger apartment. Really one of the best places to rent in the area to rent. Close to the beach and very convenient but also out of the way. The renovated units are nice.
