We booked this place through a timeshare exchange. It is about a 15 minute drive to Atlantic City, the shops at Historic Smithville were about 5 minutes down the road and Philadelphia is about 1 hour away. A major shopping are in the May's Landing area was about 25 minutes away. The resort is right beside a golf course. We did not golf but did use the nature trails. The leaves on the trees were at their peek while we were there. It was beautiful! The grounds were nicely landscaped and the buildings were well maintained. Our 2 bedroom villa was very nice and clean. My only complaint was that the furniture in the living room was a little dated. Apparently it is to be refurbished in January 2014. Everything else in the villa was fine. We definitely enjoyed our stay!
