I have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. This place is clean and has a sense of being home. The front desk is always kind and helpful. The towels are clean and the beds are soft. Can't ask for much more than that. The suites facing the bay are amazing! They have plenty of room for large...

Good stay literally across the street from the ocean .... nice clean suite.. a little noisy on the parking lot side due to the large ac units i think that's what it was. I couldn't ask for more.. we will be back next year.

This was our first trip to Birch Bay for a weekend getaway. We are Raintree Vacation owners and that's why we chose this place. Parking out front is 2 hour only unless you stay there which was nice. They give you a parking pass when you check in. We were a little early at checking in but our rooms were...

Worldmark has purchased the units on the "top" floor (4th, although there are less than six on the 5th floor). They also manage the Internet access for ALL of the units in the building. They allow only two free Internet connections per reservation. Not bad if you are in a one bedroom. However, if you are in a three bedroom...

Beautiful hotel right on the beach... just walk across the street and dip your toes in the ocean! The room was beautiful and we got a nice breeze with the patio door and window open. We had ceiling fans in both the bedroom and living room, a fireplace for a little romantic atmosphere, a washer & drier in the bathroom...

We had a 3 bedroom unit that overlooked the beach. Every evening was a spectacular sunset. There was access to a rooftop grill area that also had wonderful views and comfortable seating, as well as 2 first class barbecue grills. The staff was responsive and attentive and took care of everything we asked for.

We recently stayed at Raintree’s Sandcastle at Birch Bay for a week on an RCI exchange. As usual, we had a great spacious condo on the third floor on the side facing the pool. The only down side to facing the pool and the ocean is that you have to listen to children scream in the pool for hours. I...
