Comfort - The beds, linens, and pillows were not comfortable. The size of our two bedroom unit was very spacious and had a great lay-out.
Lay-out - Our two bedroom unit was perfect for us. When you walk in there is a stack w/d with one use laundry detergent and two dryer sheets. The 2nd bedroom is off of the front door and has two queen beds with a night stand and light in the middle. The bedrooms had ceiling fans also. The closet was decent size for a hotel room. Their is a TV in each bedroom.
Off of the 2nd bedroom is an adjoining full bath. The bathroom had a great layout too with the sink separated from the shower and toilet. The water pressure was lacking greatly! It took forever to wash my hair. Also, the provided hair dryer was pretty weak, too! If you have long, thick hair, bring your own hair dryer! The design is pretty basic and cheap but functional.
The great room has the kitchen, dining table and couch area right in the middle of the place. The kitchen was equipped with everything that we needed pretty much. The cooking pans were lacking but worked. The fridge was great and the lounging area and table were ample.
There is a great master bedroom and bath with a king size bed and big tub and then a full bath in addition. There is a door that goes straight onto the screened in porch and another door that opens into the great room.
Most of the buildings have elevators. I heard about this issue but when we got there, we saw elevators in every building that we walked by. Not sure if there are some that don't have one.
View - We were in building 11 with a view of the pond. It was very quiet and relaxing with the fountain in the pond and the geese meandering around. There are inter-coastal water views also but we liked our spot. The screened in porch had a little table and four chairs so we sat out there a lot and it was great!
There are two pools. One is more of a family style pool with a rec-room off of it and a small lazy river that you can float in. It is SMALL though so don't get super excited. The second pool is the more adult pool with a bar and 'grill'. The bar is not always open, depending on whether. The guy working there was awesome and a lot of fun. He gave us some great tips and info, too.
We had a car so we drove down to the boardwalk where the big Sky Wheel is. It was okay. We loved driving to Georgetown and Charleston. Those were are faves! Charleston is such a cool city with so much history and fun things to do. I definitely recommend renting a car and driving over. It is about an hour and a half but so worth it. We stopped off at Bonnie Hall Plantation and toured that also.
