The PERFECT oceanfront venue

Joy By The Sea was the PERFECT place to have our daughter’s wedding ceremony and reception. The venue was beautiful and the views were spectacular. Our family and friends loved everything Joy By The Sea has to offer, including the conveniently located villas, the spacious patio/deck, and the pristine interiors.

Ryan, the property/venue concierge, went above and beyond to make our daughter’s wedding day magical. He checked in each day of our daughter’s stay to be sure everything she needed was available. The day of the wedding he was there to be sure all went amazing. Also, want to give a shout-out to one of his staff members, Christina. She was very supportive and attentive, especially on the day of the wedding.

If you’re looking for a gorgeous and unforgettable location to make magical memories, whether that be through an event or a vacation, this is the place to do so!

What a magical week! It was exactly what we were looking for - to gather our family and friends for a weekend of love and joy! On top of the 100 person wedding (“dinner party” style), we were able to have a variety of small gatherings throughout our stay, which made it super special to spend time with family and friends who traveled from far away to celebrate with us.

We enjoyed everything about the beach house and appreciated all the outdoor features like the beach access, the pool, the state-of-the-art hot tub, the balcony, the large deck for tanning/lounging, the wood-burning pizza oven, and the games that JBTS supplied. The indoor kitchen & living room space is large and open, so setting up food/drinks for people to graze was perfect (also great for catering prep). The master bedroom is stunning, especially the views from the balcony & bed - basically open your eyes and see the sun rising out of the ocean, on the horizon. Pretty spectacular for the newlyweds!

Everything was so wonderful and we are very grateful that this space is available to rent and host an event. Our wedding weekend turned into such an enjoyable family/friend reunion and celebration! Thank you Joy By The Sea for helping us create magical memories that will last a lifetime (not only for us but for all of our guests)!
