My husband, my two cousins, my two children (ages 6 and 8) and I spent a week at the Christopher Columbus Condos and we were so sad to leave. Prior to our trip Lisa, the General Manager, promptly and professionally answered all of our inquiries.
We rented a 3 bedroom oceanfront unit located by the pool. Our view was spectacular-looking out onto the pool and then ocean. The unit was plenty big for 4 adults and 2 children. The units and the grounds were very clean. There were plenty of pool/beach toys and floats available for the kids to use, although we did bring some of our own as well. There was plenty of shade and chairs available for the guests. The Christopher Columbus Condos was a perfect choice for families.
The beach was somewhat rockier than I expected but we could still enter without water shoes and easily swim and float all day long, we just had to watch for the small reefs that popped up here and there.
I had read that there was a beach bar within walking distance but it was a little further than we expected (maybe a 15 minute walk on the sand). We made the walk to Tiki Beach one day and it was well worth it!
We did not rent a car while there but instead took advantage of the easy to use busses. We also took a few taxis in the evening after the busses stopped running. The Condos aren't within walking distance to Georgetown but we could head into town easily on the bus or taxi. We used the busses to get to and from the grocery stores and liquor stores as well.
Our stay at the Christopher Columbus Condos was perfect.
