Point Pleasant CONDO
We ended up renting a condo (A12) at Point Pleasant after a long debate about which place was the best and most comfortable place for a family of "4" to stay in this time around.
It sits on a hillside and has 3 pools, a small private snorkeling area and a small beach. It is located in between Margaritaville and the abandoned Sugar Hill Resort that was destroyed during the hurricane's Maria and Irma in 2017.
The following are pictures that came from the condo listing:
The following pictures are photo's that I took once we arrived. These are outside the building and steps leading down to our room.
They had laundry right outside our door. However, it was for the cleaning staff and I was real disappointed that I had to carry laundry up the steps, across the parking lot and back down the stairs (which is on the other side of the employee laundry room). Washing would cost you $3.00 in quarters and works just like a laundry mat. The dryers are .25¢ for 6 minutes.
As you walk in the front door: (the bedroom was up there and both bathrooms)
Our bedroom upstairs: It was really huge with 2 dressers, a large desk across the wall with storage above and below, sliding glass doors that led out to the steps to get down to our place, a large bed with 2 nightstands and plenty of closet space. Inside the closet we would find a bunch of beach chairs as well, which came in handy this trip.
We had a large area to get ready in outside the bathroom, which had plenty of counter space a some cabinet space. However, the 2 big cabinets were locked and below the cabinets were extra stuff pertaining to the condo like carpentry/plumbing type things. But there were a few cabinets open to use and for some reason one of them had rubbing alcohol in it. I guess they were anticipating burned sign this trip.
The bathroom: It was SUPER SMALL and the toilet was in the way to shut the door. There was no graceful way to get in there and close the door. You either straddled the toilet or walked into the shower to close it. Very bad design. However, the shower was fairly large and nicely designed.
The girls bathroom: It was decent enough for them and nicely decorated and at least they didn't have the problem with shutting the door.
Walking down the steps you had the living room. It was large with a bed sofa, 2 chairs and a large armoire to store their things in. Behind the doors was a tv. Both tv's were on when we first got there (cartoon channels...I guess since they knew we had 2 kids with us that they were going to be "kids"). The girls didn't even watch their tv at all and turned it off and shut the doors and that's how it stayed the entire vacation.
We had a wall of windows with a large glass sliding door to over look paradise.
The balcony stretched all the way across and had a table with chairs and also 2 cushioned lounge chairs and a table. We spent our mornings and evenings out here. There was usually a very nice breeze.
Now the kitchen: It was SMALL...like it was hard for 2 people to be in there at the same time and trying to get by each other. I really didn't like it. It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed for meals but it did have a door that needed repaired and I think the screw just came lose on it and needed tightening. You had to lift up on it each time to close it. It's funny, I looked at a lot of places here before picking this one and for some reason I thought this one had an added plus...a dishwasher. However, we never used it once (and that is rare for us). We just ended up washing them by hand and then dry them and put them away. My only gripe about the kitchen (other than the size) was they needed more dish towels. There was only one and it got dirty quickly. I ended up using some of our hand towels from the bathroom most of the time.
