We just recently stayed here for a wedding. Rented a 3 room condo #202. My mother arrived a few days before us. She spent the first whole day cleaning. She opened the trash can and flies took over the condo. When she called Blue Water Realty, who we booked thru, they brought her some fly swatters and spray! The garbage...

Atlantic Beach is a nice and quiet place to visit. It's nice that you are staying right by the beach and can wake up to the sunrise and watch the sunset. Then that was basically the only plus I can tell you. The room really needs serious updates! The kitchen cabinets are old and dated. The carpets are old. The...

Good family place. The extras they have....mini golf, tennis, waterslide, playground, direct beach access.....makes this place really good value to stay at. The staff are friendly enough. Many positives to say. The only negatives are the layout, dated striping and bugs. The room is more like a mobile home...you have a have a narrow walkway between sitting area and master...

We recently returned from a trip to A Place At the Beach, Atlantic Beach, NC. What a wonderful vacation spot! My husband and I are not into all the commercialized craziness of some beach locations, this is the spot for us. We rented a first floor unit thru vrbo. Although we had very little view of ocean our location was...

This was our second trip to A Place at the Beach so we knew what we were getting regarding the resort. Overall, it's a nice family place with small rooms (even the 2 bedroom units) with basic beach rental furnishings and decor. Kitchens are decently stocked but you roll the dice with what you get based on your unit. For...

We stayed in Unit 375 and it has the best view of the ocean. (direct oceanfront) The condo is light and airy, with great beach decor that puts out a truly happy vibe. The condo has everything you need from the fully stocked kitchen to beach chairs. The deck chairs are genius-high enough so you have an unobstructed view. We...

I am an owner at A Place At The Beach. It is about time management, security and other staff consistently check that everyone on this property wear their blue or red tag. For years this property has been a free for all, and anyone could walk in off the beach to use our amenities, and we the owners paid for...

Just got back from A Place at the Beach. Couldn't tell if I was a guest or inmate. I guess the "Boss Man" of the place showed up, so the security was tightened up. I actually saw one of the managers digging around in a woman's property at the pool look'n for that blue tag, while she was in the...

My girls and I so enjoyed visiting A Place at the Beach. They have a fun pool for kids with an awesome slide. And the adults can slide too. :) Beach access is available too. It is just miles from the local Aquarium as well.

My family just got back from staying here and I was so relieved that the resort required the blue tags. This is the only resort with a water slide in Atlantic Beach and the pool is awesome. I remember being a teenager here 20 years ago looking for a resort to go up to and use their pool when I...
