We rented a 2 bedroom unit for a week. We don't own a timeshare but can often find good deals online. This one was under $400 for the week, great price for a 2 bedroom with full kitchen. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom, the master had a jacuzzi tub and a king bed. The top floor (no elevators) was quiet and there was a view of the brook from our 3rd floor balcony.
Staff were friendly and quick to respond to inquiries and send someone out to help when needed. They also called back to make sure the issues I had were solved.
The units are older but they're clean. There are the inevitable signs of wear and tear like broken blinds and scratched laminate kitchen counters, nothing too bad really. The 3 TV's in the unit are old school and need replacing, but they work. ** word of warning. don't take the batteries out of the TV remotes or they'll need resetting ** WiFi is only available in the main building. Laundry is not in each unit, but a laundromat located near the pools.
There's lots for kids to do too, mini putt, pools, an arcade, a small theater, and more.. even a walk along the brook that runs out back.
I didn't post pictures because the ones posted here really did look exactly like the apt we had. Especially the following pics
