The one bedroom (sleeps 6) unit renovations are complete, and they look quite nice. Please see my earlier review for my general thoughts on the resort - here I want to focus on our recent stay. Not too much changed 'outside' the units, except the playground was removed and built up with pumps installed to avoid flooding. They will be... More

We did get a newly renovated unit and it was amazing. Much better than what I expected at the beach and definitely better than what some of the reviews suggest. Pool was great and the slide is a must. Beautiful grounds and beach area, especially if collecting shells. About 1 1/2 miles from Ft. Macon. The only downfall in the... More

I would have given this 5 stars but the place was in need of some updating which I was assured will be done this year. I was pleasantly surprised at how everything we need was provided. The pools were great and clean. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We will be looking forward to going back next year. The... More

After reading other reviews on this website, I knew that the current management company has only been there for a couple of years and that they were in the process of renovating. And I rented a 1st floor condo that was not renovated so that we would be close enough to the indoor pool for our grandsons. From an architectural... More

Thank you for expressing your concerns about our Resort. The renovations taking place in the K building will begin in October of this year. As you can see that we have just recently completed phase 1 in the L building. As for the Fire Exit signs they are lit up by every stairwell Exit in both buildings. This property was... More

Many years ago, my husband and I met at Cherry Point. That is where our family (and love story) began. Through the years of many military moves, new bases, states, locations, we have longed for and missed Atlantic Beach. We started coming to A Place at the Beach several years ago. The very first trip sealed it as a tradition... More

We've been trading into to A Place At The Beach III at least once a year for about 12 years. We've seen at least two management changes, and we've witnessed the continuous deterioration of the (timeshare) units due to significant wear and tear. Part of the wear aspect is due to the allowance of pets (owners only), but that's a... More

We rented a 3 bedroom here in January. It snowed!!! So, as a result we spent much more time in the room than we had planned. Our room was a long walk from the elevator. Downside: we were asked to go to a lunch to discuss upcoming renovations, what we would like to see, etc. Well, we went and it... More

Not quite up to the timeshare standards my parents are used to. Carpet needs replaced soon, etc. Only one cart to assist with getting luggage in and out. Great location, just a mile along the beach from Fort Macon park. I spent most of my time on the beach, not in the room.

This place is gross. If you like a clean, new updated look do not stay here. My parent have owned here since the 1980's and it looks like it. The carpet is threadbare. The walls have water damage bubbles in it. The mattress on the bed has not been changed. The sofa has been the same for 14 years. Everything... More
