Joy Lee Apartments
317 Carolina Beach Avenue N
Local: 910 458-8361Snuggled neatly between the harbor and the sea and only 1 1/2 blocks North of the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, the Joy Lee is a very small apartment complex that has been enjoyed as a vacation spot since 1945. Designed and constructed by Grover Lewis and named for his daughter, the retreat has been a labor of love for the family for over 60 years. Entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 for its unique design; it 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 style. 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! Call for reservations, space is limited.
