The property is great for kids - there are play areas and pools (not heated, I hear - it was too cold for us to be swimming).
The room itself was nice - the kitchen set up was great for a family, the TV and living area was perfect for the casual viewing of the golf course right outside, and you can see little rabbits roaming around everywhere.
The set up is like this: you walk in, and to the right is the kitchen and further along is the living room area. The left side is the "master" bedroom, and to the right is the second bedroom, which also has its own entrance from the outside (in case you're not taking over the entire suite). The second bedroom has its own bathroom/tiny kitchen/TV/couch set up.
There is one thing to complain about: the noise. We were on the first floor, so we heard the people upstairs every time they moved furniture, walked, dropped something..... and I can only guess that our rooms next to ours heard our kids screaming from time to time. But then again, this is time share property, so you're bound to have nosiy kids!
