We only stayed here two nights - on our way to and from Florida. The location is so convenient for an overnight stop as it's right off of I-95. And that might be one of the only negatives about this resort - there is a bit of road noice from the interstate since it's so close.
The resort is fairly small, only a small activities building that serves as the check-in building, and a small outdoor pool.
The units all face a small lake (inlet?) and the view in November was spectacular with all the trees. Very nice. We saw a bunch of families fishing on the piers and it does look like a relaxing place to unwind for a bit. There really is nothing to speak of in the surrounding town. They even give you a map of highlighted business they recommend, I'm guessing you should probably avoid the others. Ha. We drove into Charleston twice - it is an easy 45-minute trip into downtown.
The unit itself is very, very nice. We had a 3-bedroom and it was probably among the most spacious of any timeshare I've been in. All of the rooms were huge. The bathrooms were the only thing that weren't as impressive but they were still plenty large enough. The decor is just lovely and very updated and new. The beds and especially the linens were really cozy and comfortable. The kitchen looked brand new and the TVs were all large and flat-screened. I can't say enough good things about the furnishings and decor of this place.
We were on the ground floor and yes, you can hear every single step of the people above you. The folks upstairs got up at 5:30 a.m. and proceeded to walk around non-stop for 3 hours. I'm not really sure what they were doing but we certainly heard them doing it. So I would definitely request a top-floor unit.
All in all I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quick weekend getaway or maybe a fishing/boating vacation. It's definitely up to Wyndham's standards and it's one of the prettiest units I've stayed in.
