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

We own one if the busiest weeks in the summer....July 4th. My two boys, 13 and 9, love the slide. My parents bought several years ago and were very pleased.....I am not so happy about the resorts fees. We pay higher and higher dues every year and this year was a doozy!

The good: fantastic pools and other activities. Lots of people grilling and having a good time in the courtyard. Nice grills provided, charcoal and gas! Multiple showers for coming back from the beach. The not so great: a complicated setup. Several times I ended up in the wrong building trying to get back to my room. Need to walk through... More

We visited Atlantic Beach in the last week of August and rented a 2-bedroom unit from its owner. It was 'cozy' with 4 adults and 3 young children, but comfortable. The unit was clean and adequately equipped, though it would be nice if toilet paper was provided when we arrived. Our unit faced the parking lot rather than the beach,... More
