We stayed at the beach walker villas in the plantation and our particular unit was average. I believe these are individually owned. These villas seemed to be the oldest of the surrounding villas which explains the small bathrooms and balconies. However this would also be the reason they are more "affordable" than other island properties. The pool and walk way to the beach were very nice and well kept. The plantation itself was beautiful with an abundance of live oaks, fishing ponds, golf course, parks and walking trails. Great for bike riding! Most disappointing to me personally was the beach itself. It is very "shelly" not the kind of sand you dig your toes into and they seem to be fighting erosion like many others on the Atlantic coast. My advice would be to check out other properties on the island if your budget allows if not the beach walker is certainly not horrible by any means , they are just your average older condo units.
