The unit was lovely. I felt like I was walking into a model, as it appeared brand-new. Apparently it was totally redone the month before. Even the towels were new! We had two bedrooms and two baths. There was a view of the ocean and we could hear the surf, even though it was not oceanfront.

Our condo was a two-story, 1,200 square foot, two-bedroom place that slept 6. Our condo featured two gas fireplaces, a fully equipped kitchen, three baths, a stereo, two TVs, a VCR, a DVD player, and spacious bedrooms. The condo was well cared for and nicely furnished. This is a resort that cares about upkeep and maintenance. (The only thing we missed was being able to do laundry in our condo; there was pay laundry onsite however.) We found everything to be up to gold-crown standards except one thing, which I will speak of later.
The resort had a recreation center that the kids enjoyed, but did not rave about. We joined up for the pancake breakfast cooked by the housekeeping staff; it was a nice start to our stay. We purchased our attraction tickets from the front desk, which saved time in lines. The front desk and all staff were friendly and helpful. The playground with a real fishing boat was a huge hit. The beach was the best! There were miles of sand and sea.
The only aspect of the resort that we found odd is probably more of a Mother Nature issue than anything, but it needs to be noted. The land near the coast is not stable, and as a result, many buildings built seaside are shifting. Our condo had a good 3- to 5-inch slant. It gave you a weird feeling as you walked up hill inside a building. It was obvious that stabilizers had been added to the building; however, we were never told if this was a serious concern or not. I know some people would be very leery about the condition of the building. That was the only issue that we had that would not make it a gold-crown resort.
Schooner Landing is a very nice resort in an unbelievable location. All in all, it was a very worthwhile trip.
