“Great Family Vacation Spot”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We have been vacationing at Portside since the early to mid 90's. Our family has great memories here. As with any property of this age it is important to investigate thoroughly. Most units are privately owned and the condition of the unit varies greatly with the ownership. Some have not been updated in a loooong time. Others have been wonderfully updated. We are staying in Unit D1 this summer and it is very accommodating. Furniture is practically new and very clean, beds are unbelievably comfortable. The only suggestion is that the TV in the 2nd (bunk) BR be updated and cable added. The owners have thought of everything. We did not have to buy anything except groceries. Love Portside and will stay again. Bonus...First Baptist Church Woodstock has assumed the ministry of 1st Baptist PCB and it is just around the corner. Great place to worship.
P.S. Rental for the week is cheaper now than in the 90's.

Room Tip: Ask for recent pictures and ask plenty of questions. The lady we worked with was awesome.

This development was built in the late 80's and it shows. The units are condo's and the unit you get makes all the difference. Many people have bought the units during the bubble and they are upside down on their mortgage. The management company has had problems in the past and they have changed management of the complex. The unit we stayed in was in need of a complete updating job. The owner lives out of state and does not want to spend any money on it...just collect rent. There are some nice units in the development but beware and ask for recent photos before renting. I would not stay there again. I rented directly from the owner.

Room Tip: For this development I would us VRBO.com or get a referral for a specific unit from someone who has...

We went here for the first time on a recommendation of one of our friends. It is a treasure! Tucked in the middle of acres of palm trees, right across the street from the ocean. Close to restaurants, shopping centers and out of heavy traffic. Three pools, hot tub, waterfall, and tiki hut. Everything provided and in wonderful shape. Owner (for G-5) was awesome to work with. Very accessible and eager to help. We had one of our best vacations ever. Plan to go back next year. Highly recommend.

Portside is one of our favorite condos to visit! There are 3 pools and a hot tub. There is a beach access directly across the street (even visible while swimming in the front pool). Each condo is owned and operated individually and we have only found condos in great shape! Our newest found favorite is unit G5 which backs up to a private wooded area =)

I've stayed at Portside numerous times over the past ten years and have never had a complaint. One time the shower was malfunctioning and they were there to fix it very quickly. Plan to go back this year. We love it because of the location too.
