We were in the condo 282 with two bedrooms. One has a double bed and a bunk bed. Perfect for us, our daughter and two grandchildren. Great view of the pool which has a long slide and the ocean. We were there a week and spent all of our time at the pool. The girls 4 and 8 loved it... More

I stayed last week on a family vacation. The unit itself was fine-- adequate on the inside, about what you'd expect for a beach condo. If you are looking for a fairly quiet, idyllic place to enjoy a week at the beach with a family, this is a good place to visit. Things I liked: wide beach with easy access,... More

Thank you for taking the time out to review our resort. We greatly appreciate that. The issue with the wristbands is that we have such a problem with people walking on from the beach. It makes it hard to pick out the trespassers from actual guest. I apologize that the approach made you uncomfortable and like you did not belong,... More

Stayed at a friends condo that was completely upgraded and absolutely gorgeous. Unit was on the top floor of L building with great ocean/bay views. Our stay included beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys for the kids, DVD with large variety of movies, huge flat screen TV, patio deck chairs along with colorful beach decor throughout every room. The resort provided... More

This was our first visit to the Outer Banks and Atlantic Beach. We are normally Gulf Coast Panhandle people. Atlantic Beach and the surrounding area is not a lot like the Florida Panhandle. Although it is a tourist location it is not as tourist laden as say Panama City Beach or Destin. The beaches are not as pristine as the... More

Thank you for taking the time out to review the resort.

With so many options now at Atlantic Beach and Emerald Isle, it is hard to decide where to stay. We recently visited 7/31-8/6 with our daughter and grandchildren. Located between the Circle and Fort Macon, we loved the location--on the beach with no crossing roads with kids, a great pool with a super fun slide. The kids are 8 and... More

Thank you for the review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the amenities here. The bonus of this property is that if you do have children you don;t have to constantly be worried about crossing traffic because we are direct ocean front.

This was our second stay at A Place at the Beach III. We rented from VRBO in 2014, Unit 183, and had a great stay. That unit was unavailable this year, so we rented from Atlantic Beach Realty, Unit 282. Both of these units overlook the outdoor pool which made it ideal for keeping track of my 11 year old... More
