    Enjoyed our stay here.

    Exactly as pictured. Safe community. Just a few minutes from downtown. Clean, and has all the kitchen items needed to cook if you want to. Much better than staying in a hotel. The only issue is not being able to park a 2nd car at the condo, you have to use an overflow parking lot. Would stay again the next time we visit.

    Stop looking, book this!!

    This is an excellent facility. I booked this last minute and wasn't sure what I was booking, because I was in a hurry. It was a full apartment that was cleaner then a majority of 9.0+ hotels we typically stay in. We came in very late and the young lady assisting us was super cheerful! The location is minutes away from Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg.

    Great trip

    We come to Busch Gardens every year a few times a year. I love that we have the option to get the condo style rooms so we split it with our family and we are all very comfortable and not over crowded. I also love that it has a full kitchen and separate bathrooms. It’s always super clean and the staff are very nice!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Apartment was lovely - very comfortable and well stocked. The location is convenient to shops and restaurants. The playground was underwhelming and walking around the property was difficult in spots due to lack of sidewalks and paths. If you opt to do the timeshare presentation be warned it is long -we stopped it and were there 3 hours!

    Great place for families

    The suite was nice, very large and spacious, and well equipped. We appreciated the in-suite amenities, dual bathrooms, and even the washer and dryer access. Everything appeared clean. The only flaw was some worn furniture that was a bit tired and in need of replacement or refurbishment.

    The colonies is a great place to spend a week. It is 20 minutes brim Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Around the corner there is outlet shopping and many restaurants.

    The pools are wonderful. The kids loved playing in both the indoor and outdoor pools. There was a magic show on Monday night that was very good.
