This is our second stay here and it won't be our last. It has everything you need for a nice, quiet, convenient beach trip. We stayed for 4 days/3 nights...We have a small family(1 teenager) so the 1 BR(bunks in hall) is good for us. A larger family would probably be more comfortable in a 2 BR unit.
Nice LR with flat screen tv, pull out couch, DVD player, extra chair..... well equiped kitchen with snack bar(Stools) , dishwasher, micro, full size fridge etc...plus everything you need in a kitchen (toaster oven, coffee maker, dishes, utensils etc.). All units have all of these basic necessities. Clean bathroom and nice master bedroom with another flat screen tv and good closet space(and also entry to bathroom). Rooms cleaned daily..and have towels, sheets etc. You don't need to bring anything except beach towels and food.
The best part of this place are the VIEWS. Full ocean views and when you sit on the couch in the LR, its like you are on a cruise..you ONLY see ocean out the window...its breathtaking. The balcony is a nice size with chairs. **TIP: Get a END UNIT(it will end with "01" for a 1 Br or "14" for a 2 BR)...you get a extra window in the LR for side views and also a side ocean view in the bedroom, which the interior units do not have.(More privacy too)
The are fireworks on the beach every Thursday night which you can view from the balcony also.
The 2 pools are a nice bonus(one outdoor and one indoor) and were not crowded(but we went during the week). You can also reserve beach chairs and umbrellas which are already set up in front of the resort.
There are a few walkways to the beach with showers to wash off sand. There is a small arcade, as well as soda machines/vending machines throughout the property..and a laundry room
downstairs. Free WiFi is available in all rooms..just ask for a connection cord at the front desk if you did not bring yours.
We go mainly for the beach..but there is a small amusement area in town, as well as Fort Fisher Aquarium down the road in Kure Beach(10 minutes)..as well as the Riverwalk in Wilmington(20 minutes).
YOu can order pizza delivered right to your room from a local pizza place(the phone number is on your check-in sheet)..and there are other options in town for take out or dining in.(We prefer to dine-in since the view is so awesome.)
