My family of 20 has been going to the Bon-Aire now for several years for our annual Christmas reunion. We like that we can all be close together and find something for all ages (now teens through seniors), including the pools, shuffleboard, and SandBar Bill's. It is walking distance to the grocery store, CVS, nail salon, dollar store, Chik-Fil-A (our favorite for iced tea and yummy chicken), and the great seafood restaurants in Pass-A-Grill. Just down the beach there is a great bar with good food, all the sports games on TV's, and cheap beer. The Bon-Aire has recently remodeled and everything is new, clean, bright and the beds are SO COMFORTABLE! It is just steps from the beach and I challenge anyone to find a place so reasonably-priced this close to the beach. This family-run business has just 2-story units - - so much better than those high rises down the beach. The units are big and the kitchenettes have everything you need for a week's stay (dishes, soap, towels, etc.). I do wish, tho, that they'd re-paint the shuffleboard lines for the annual tournament my Dad organizes. The grounds are very well-maintained and it has the feel of a small community vs a mass of strangers. When the college bowl games roll around on New Year's Day, the competition and cheering is diverse but friendly. Can't go wrong with this place and we'll be going back again this year.
