We just enjoyed what may have been my favorite Thanksgiving ever with my parents, 2 teenage kids, hubby, and my brother's family at this wonderful condo. We had stayed in Pointe West before, so we knew we loved the beach and property there, but loved our visit at this condo "Sandcastle." We picked it for the great layout and beach views, which were just as advertised. We loved it for so many happy surprises.
The place was very clean and in great condition. It is clearly well cared for! Big table that (with the hall bench added) seated all 9 of us. But the best table in the house was on the back porch! The weather was surprisingly beautiful even in late November, albeit a little windy.
The kitchen was so well stocked. Since we were making Thanksgiving there, I brought things from home, but didn't even unpack them. There were all the needed appliances, peelers, bowls, pots, even a potato masher! There were standard spices, cooking spray, saran wrap, foil etc!
We watched movies all piled onto the big sofa and chairs in the family room, so fun! The game cabinet was the best. Even my teenagers got into the group games. We played at least one each day. They got really into them and even silenced their phones! We even have some of these games at home, but somehow here all together, we just enjoyed each other. It was a big enough place that we had enough room, but small enough that we really all hung out together.
The Pointe West beach was beautiful as always - best beach on the island. It was pretty deserted, but that was nice for family walks. The kids braved the water...I did not :) Immediately needed the hot tub after at the club which was great. Restaurant at the club was closed for the season and said it would reopen in March. That was fine because we cooked and ate at the condo the entire time, but just FYI.
Overall, great experience, wonderful memories and fantastic condo...we WILL be back.
