We booked our trip for spring-break on a very short notice so the Windjammer Resort was the only timeshare that was available on the Oregon/Washington coast. We didn’t think much about it until a week before we left for out trip, so we thought we would read some reviews. After reading the other reviews we started to think we maybe shouldn’t even go. Expecting the worst we headed out for our week vacation.
We arrived on Saturday evening and we were greeted very warmly. We were expecting the rooms to smell like smoke, the furniture to be falling apart and it to be so noisy that we couldn’t even sleep. When we walked into our 2 bedroom condo we were pleasantly surprised. The Condo was very clean; the furniture was almost all solid Oak, the couch was comfortable and the beds were in good shape. The mattresses were not pillow top but were of average hotel comfort. The kitchen had all the amenities needed to make the stay a pleasant one. The only this was you are able to hear the people above you running around, I guess that was really the only negative.
Since this is a very small resort and the pool/spa were outdoors and it decided to snow on spring break we were not able to use them but they did have a community center with a very nice workout room, sauna, Jacuzzi, pool, indoor basketball court, and game room for our use.
The golf course is a public course, and was well maintained. Diehards were out there playing but for me it was too wet and too cold. Beach combing was neat and there was a cinema just two doors down from the resort. The recommendations given by Charlie and his wife for dinning and places to go came in handy for us to have a good time even with the unexpected weather.
