We recently spent several nights in a FRBO unit at A Place at the Beach III. The unit was very nice, and beautifully decorated. The site advertises both an outdoor and indoor pools. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor pool. The indoor pool was another thing. We went down at 7:30PM to enjoy the pool and hot tub, only to find... More

This is a very nice place for families with children. The water slide alone makes it a fun time for the kids. We spent a week there with our grand children and we had a great time. We had a 2 bedroom condo and it was on the small side but still comfortable. We will make this our annual vacation... More

We have been coming to APAB since it was built. Last year we purchased an adjacent week in the same unit so that we would have two weeks together. The pool is excellent as is the access to the beach. The rooms have been remodeled and are better than before. Decks are tiny, but that has always been the case.... More

It has been several years since I have visited Atlantic Beach in North Carolina. I had never stayed at A Place at the Beach III prior to my recent stay. I arrived mid-afternoon on Tuesday to glorious weather. Upon entering the resort, there was a guardhouse at the entrance. I was greeted and directed to the office for check-in. Inside... 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.
