I stayed September 9-12, 2010 at the Beach Club at St. Simons with my sister and her two small children. It was exactly what I had in mind for a family long weekend. With the two little ones, it was critical that we stay ON the beach to minimize the amount of time spent schlepping kids and gear back and forth, particularly given that we only had a couple of full days. Our unit, #122, was perfect for us. It was clean, bright, and nicely decorated. The condo seemed to be fairly recently updated and looked nice, but the decor was casual and not so nice that we were afraid to let the kids touch anything. That's the balance I was looking for. The property seemed well-maintained and the landscaping of the courtyard was delightful. The pools and pool decks were clean and there were plenty of chairs to go around. There were also plenty of luggage carts and ample parking. Here and there it was possible to find very small amounts of rust or mildew, but anyone who has lived at the beach as I have knows that this is normal and pretty much impossible to prevent. I found the property staff to be courteous and pleasant, and had no trouble obtaining an extra parking pass when I needed one. I really appreciated the value, too. We considered staying at another resort on the island, but for what we would have paid for a 2-queen hotel room at sale rate there we got a 2br., 2 ba. condo at the Beach Club. I typically enjoy high-end accommodations and definitely appreciate a 5-star upscale room, but for this type of vacation the space and amenities of the condo cannot be beaten. Having the full kitchen was a definite plus over a regular room, especially with an infant. Another plus was that I got the key codes for the gate and condo by email ahead of time, so it was no problem that I arrived at 11 pm. I was able to go right in without having to check in at the office. It was very convenient. I would LOVE to stay at the Beach Club again!
