I stayed here for a few days recently.
I had a one bedroom on the second level in the main building. All rooms have a small deck out the back overlooking the harbor. The room was very clean and well maintained, as were the grounds and the pool. I have been to many Intervale timeshares and this was in line with their rentals as far as standards.
The unit had a small fridge, microwave, sink, coffee maker and dishes for four people. However, no stove, so no real cooking could take place and you are expected to wash your own dishes, as there is no dishwasher. Not that I mind doing that, because I don't, but it made me wonder just how well OTHER people might have washed them, know what I mean? A dishwasher would ensure sanitization.
The beach was a 2 minute walk out the property and though very large, it is covered in small rocks and broken shells. Water shoes would be a must! It is beautiful and plenty of room to spread out, no worries about feeling crowded, but not the best beach for frolicking on the sand as the roughness of the terrain is pretty uncomfortable.
I appreciated that guests who smoke are expected to be 25 feet from the property, though I did phone the front desk one night when it was obvious that the guests below me were smoking on their deck. This was taken care of right away and did not happen again.
They have what looked like adorable cottages and those would be something that I would love to check out in the future.
The staff were friendly and the place was lovely. Very nice for families, I think. Grills out back, pool, beach and plenty to do in the area. More mini golf than you can imagine! LOL
There is a lot to do in West Yarmouth and per usual, I always check out my Tripadvisor for reviews for local restaurants, etc.
There are also quite a few thrift shops which I really enjoyed and quite possibly the oldest Christmas Tree Shop I have ever seen. I just had to go in and check it out...a dinosaur (and unfortunately, already putting out Halloween, Fall and Christmas decor! Ugh!)
I would recommend this resort.
