Based on the previous review and dates of the reviews, I was very skeptical. The price was very good so I was thinking the property may have looked dated. However, I have to say the accommodations were very nice. It was clean and the property offered a lot to do. I really loved it. My family decided we would make...

If you want to relax and enjoy time with your family, in this day and age is hard to do at home with such busy schedules, this is a wonderful place to reconnect. The staff is so helpful and the rec center has a lot of events not to mention the historical aspects of New Bern. The only downside is...

This was a decent place to stay for our trip back to North Carolina. We took a weeks vacation June 21st-28th with our two boys 5 and 10. It was the first avaiable, so I took it. It was a beach vacation but the beach is about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes from the closest beach. That...

We were pretty satisfied with our condo exchange, though I agree the layout could have used a bit more common sense. Outside, there are very pretty ponds and a nearby marina that was pleasant to walk around. The prevalent geese are noisy and messy around the ponds, but didn't prevent sleep. A pathway sweep-up every day or so would make...

I called VRI - this timeshare resort's managing firm - ahead of time, knowing I would arrive after the 7 PM closing time of the 'front' office (4.5 miles away from the unit), and found out the combination of the lockbox where my key would be stashed for me. When I actually got to this unit, which I obtained through...

We had a week at a timeshare in this resort - unit 4006. Have stayed on many of these types of resorts in USA and other countries, and this was one of the nicest. The whole resort is clean, tidy and very attractive. The pool is a good size. Unfortunately, because of the hurricane, the recreation centre was closed, so...

My husband and I loved it here. Our villa had a loft bedroom overlooking the living room and another bedroom on the main level. Also, on the main level the jacuzzi looked out onto the screened in porch and a little lake. Free Wifi was available in the recreation building along with a small room of exercise equipment. Several other...

My husband and I spent Memorial Day Weekend at this resort - Unit 5062. We brought his parents, and there was ample room for all of us. The condo is on the 2nd story (3d story loft - bedroom w/private bath). It was difficult for his father, who was disabled, to climb up and down the steps, but that was...

We spent a week at Sandcastle Cove in New Bern at the end of June and enjoyed it very much. The accommodations were very good and clean with all the amenities to include a lovely whirlpool/hot tub in it's own separate room. There were two balconies, one enclosed and one open. The only thing that would have made it better...
