We traded into a 2 bedroom unit from II. I have called ahead and learn that unit 31E is the farthest away from beach access you can possibly be. The unit was assigned by trade and it is impossible to switch due to high capacity in the summer. I totally respect the staff reply. It seems fair that you get what you trade instead of budgeting in a timeshare situation. I was also told that the unit was totally renovated a few months ago and have washer and dryer in unit. Few units in the resort have washer/dryer in unit. The is a big plus for us near the beach. We are also in the closest to the only two hot tub and one indoor pool in the complex.
Check-in was very easy. We receive our room key, internet account login, parking tag and information package very quickly. Parking is also very good at this resort.
We were so surprise to check-in to a almost brand new, spotless and beautifully decorated unit. The 2 bedroom unit is clean and comfortable. The living area is large with flat screen TV. The living room has comfortable sofa bed. The fully equipped kitchen has with full size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, toaster and blender. It also has all the pots, pans, plates, bowls and utensil you will need to fix a good meal. The supermarket is across the street along with several restaurant, a movie theater, fishing supplies and a ice-cream shop. The dining area has sitting for four and counter sitting for two. Two full baths and a lot of shelve space in kitchen, bath and bedroom area. The balcony is smaller with two wooden lounge chairs/table and is facing the hot tub and indoor pool. The hot tub is basically in the backyard. We were on the second floor but for the first time I want to get a first floor unit with it's own key card entry from the porch area to the hot tub. The master bedroom has bed bed, and a hugh jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom has two twin bed and shower. There is a start pack of shampoo and soap in the bathrooms.
The resort offer some a lot of activities for kids and adult. Most of the activities are in the recreation area. On Monday morning there is a free breakfast with an information session with a lot of the local recreation business. This is not to be miss. There is simply too much to do in Atlantic Beach and many ways to do them. Some of the adventure we have in our two times in Atlantic Beach include Shackleford Island, Sand Dollar Island, NC Aquarium, deep sea fishing, Morehead City, Beaufort Historic area, etc.... Peppertree also have a Pig Pigin on Tuesday evening. It is the best pull pork BBQ I have ever have. You pick your own piece of pork out of the whole large pig.
The resort has two other outdoor pool. There is large game room and a gym in a building by the beach. There is also a tennis court, basketball court and playground for kids. You will not be bored anytime of the year because the beautiful beach is just steps away and it is fantastic. You can rent beach chair and umbrella at the recreation area and they sell out fast so go early. Surfboard and boogie board are also for rent.
We cooked a lot of meals in our units but the area has so much choices of restaurants and can be very reasonable. We recommend Amos Mosquitos. The line to get in is long. The food, service and atmosphere is great. Diner down one block is good all you can eat shrimp. White Swan Barbecue has great pull pork, fried chicken, potatoe salad and ice tea. My son favorite. We have their value pack five times in one week. The pack comes with pull pork, fried chicken, the best hush puppies, three sides and a gallon their fantastic ice tea for $20 with a coupon from the area entertainment book. Most of the area restaurant offer daily special or discount. April is slow season and with the economy being bad, the resort is only a quarter full and everywhere we go is not crowd, except for Amos Mosquitos and White Swan.
