What a dump...a loud, dated, almost dangerously unmaintained dump.
Both units were one-bedroom with a sleeper sofa in the living area and an adjacent kitchen area with 2 burner stove, microwave, dishwasher and fridge.
Both units featured construction that allowed you to hear everything (and I mean everything!!) from both the units below, above and on either side. It was a side-show in and among itself!
Both units were also extremely dated from the 1980s. Old furniture, old wallpaper and paint, old shower enclosure, old washer/dryer, old bed and old linens. The Velux blankeds were ragged and had large holes in them.
In the upper unit we rented, the toilet didn't flush without some coaxing, the phone wasn't plugged in and we had to move a sleeper sofa to find the plug. The upper unit also was victim to the heating/cooling desires of the lower unit. When they wanted it hot, it created a Hopi sweat lodge in the upper unit that was unable to control.
What made the dump dangerous, however, was the deferred maintenance. Two of the exterior railings were wobbly when touched. And, un-repaired cracks in the sidewalks were a trip-n-fall accident waiting to happen. I'm not going to even worry about the blackened grout in the bathroom, peeling wallpaper or chipped paint...but others might.
Also, none of the units had screens in the windows--which was OK in the spring, but not great in the summer when the mosquitos are buzzing. When we opened the window because the air-conditioning wasn't working, a large wasp entered. We were forced to keep things closed, despite the sweltering conditions just to make sure that the wasps stayed outside.
The biggest insult, however was the "Guest Survey" that we were supposed to do that sounded as if it were required because we booked two units through RCI Timeshare. It was supposed to have lasted 45 minutes. The "guest survey" was really just a typical timeshare sales pitch--funny, because we already had a timeshare. When they found out that not only were we NOT interested in more timeshare weeks but that this would be the LAST place we'd want to invest in, they brusquely left us without so much as a "Good-by".
On the positive side: the complex was centrally located (right next to a Super K mart in case that floats your boat) and nearby all attractions. The grounds were, for the most part, pretty. and, if you had kids, there were plenty of things that they could do to keep occupied (pool and arcade). But, that's were the positive elements end.
There are plenty of placed in Williamsburg besides this dump. Book those places first and leave this place for us poor folks that have to stay here due to timeshare rules.
