My husband and I stayed here for a week. My husband and I have stayed in many timeshares so I rate this one average in comparison to the rest.
The resort is close to the beach if you like to spend time there. It's also close to restaurants, shopping and activities. We ate dinner out every night and all the restaurants were close and easy to drive to.
The unit we had is a three bedroom, three bath unit. Initially, we had two other couples coming but one couple was unable to make the trip. The unit is great for four people but would have a hard time accommodating six adults. One bedroom is upstairs, has two small twin beds and no TV. The other two bedrooms are on the main floor and were nice. The kitchen and living area are sufficient but would have a hard time accommodating six adults. The unit needs updating.
The deck overlooks a pond and gives you a nice view. We were able to watch birds fly on to and off the water. One bird would get on a branch right below our unit and would spread it's wings to dry off. It was beautiful. There's an alligator that would circle the pond. One day he came to visit. We watched him from the second floor. He even growled for us. That was very entertaining. The deck accommodated the four of us but it was difficult to move around. We were only given four deck chairs so again, six adults would have a hard time.
There were some activities for the guests at the resort, including coffee and muffins in the morning. None of us felt like getting ready early to go. There was a wine and cheese reception one evening that was nice. We were able to chat with other people staying at the resort. The activity center and pool was right across the street from us so it was easy to get to it.
The resort is in a pretty area and very scenic if you like to walk or ride a bike.
In 2006, we stayed at Waterside by Spinnaker, a sister resort which is close by. We preferred that resort. We had five adults and a baby at that resort and it accommodated all of us very well.
