“Excellent Value, Great Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

We stayed at the Golden Sands for the weekend, while attending the Jazz festival. This was our third stay here. We love the location, just across the street from the lake, close to parks, walking trails along the lakefront, and along the canal. It is walking distance (about 20 minutes along the lakefront) to the historic downtown where one can wander, sit at a sidewalk cafe and people watch or one can visit the very large open-air market on Main Street every Saturday morning. It is a great place for family stays, and young children can enjoy the beach, the adventure park one block away, or rent bikes, peddle carts or other summer activity equipment from a location two doors down.

It is also a perfect base to explore all the wineries in the region, do some tastings and pick up a few bottles of excellent estate wines.

The rooms are basic but have recently been upgraded. We always ask for one of the second floor kitchen units that has everything one needs for a short stay,including dishes. toaster, etc. We choose one facing the lake so that we can get up in the morning and have coffee on the deck and watch the joggers, walkers, early morning swimmers and just relax. There is a heated pool, a barbecue for guest use beside the pool and all the staff are friendly and very helpful in providing information about the town and activities.

This is excellent value for the money!!!

Room Tip: The front rooms, second floor are kitchenets and provide a view over the lake>
