Just returned from a week's stay at Whispering Woods. We had a 2 bedroom plus loft unit in the St Andrews complex. Overall we had a good stay. Things were good and bad.
Nicely decorated rooms. Fresh paint, new marble tile in the bathroom. Very clean.
Newer sectional couch with fold out bed.
Well equipped kitchen.
Quiet residential area.
Large, new woodstove, nice touch for winter.
Missing some finishing touches: no tools for the BBQ, no extra trash bags or any dishwasher detergent.
Thin blankets, hope they give you more in the winter.
Pool is much smaller than it looks in the pictures. 3 families and it is crowded.
Shower faucet squeeled like a tea kettle.
No AC. It was 88 degrees when we were visiting.
Big Con! The condo's overlook another resort's golf course. The rooms are right on the course! Each unit has a 4 ft. deck seperated on each side by 15 foot tall nets but open to the front with steps leading down to a gravel path and out to the course. There is a big sign in each room that says you are not allowed to walk on the path or go on the course. Also it warns not to use the patio if golfers are present. Problem was they were always present. My two boys were dying to play on that lush green lawn but couldn't. The few times they did sneak out there they were admonished by passing golfers or maintenace people. With no other lawn space or play areas except the pool which was a 3 block walk away, it meant I had two active boys bouncing around the room on nice sunny days.
This would be a great place for adults who plan to be out of the room most of the day. I can't say I suggest it for families with young kids.
