We stayed in an older building that hasn't been renovated. It will be renovated in October. For our needs this was fine. Loved the pool and water slide. Easy access to the beach. Never heard any neighbors getting loud. Plenty of family activities to do on the grounds. Definitely a place we will come back to when we vacation at... More

I stayed here with my family including two little kids. The condos are nicely situated and we did not hear a lot of noise from the other condos. It has an awesome pool with a water slide and is very close to the beach. The condo had pretty much everything in it that you could need. The only minor bump... More

Thank you so much for the great review. We added a temporary 4th gas grill this year because we have a high demand for grilling during the summer months. We look forward to visiting again with you on your next vacation. More

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

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.
