A Place At The Beach III offers more amenities than any other resort on the Crystal Coast. The oceanfront location of the resort allows immediate access to the beach without crossing any streets. The large outdoor pool offers a wade-in area for toddlers as well as the only giant water slide in Atlantic Beach! A central courtyard also features an updated kid's playground and a large grassy area as well as outdoor charcoal grills. An indoor pool with hot tub and a deck with gas grills are only a few steps from this unit.

About Victoria Benson

Hi, my name is Victoria and this is my husband, Dennis! I'm from North Carolina and I've been vacationing in the Atlantic Beach area for all of my adult life. When my daughter, Lorna, was very young I decided to invest in a condo at our favorite resort, A Place At The Beach III. I have never regretted this decision; my family has enjoyed our home away from home so very much. Great memories, wonderful times!

Victoria Benson purchased this condo in 1993

Why Victoria Benson chose Atlantic Beach

A Place At The Beach III simply has the best amenities of any resort on the Crystal Coast. The grounds are beautifully kept and the beach is wide, white and all you could ask for. If you want something to do or see there are literally countless options, but there is still a hometown feel to the area, which is not as commercialized as some others are. This resort is family-friendly and I do feel very safe here, as the security on the property is vigilant but not overbearing.

Lorna Dune - Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 4-day-weekend stay. The Lorna Dune had everything we needed - from every kitchen appliance and utensil to sand toys - so packing for the trip was minimal, and Victoria was quick and easy to work with all our questions.

We went to the pool twice each day. It was very family friendly, even for night swims. Our 6-year-old had a blast on the waterslide, and our 3-year-old liked wading around the toddler area. We met and talked with new folks everyday. We didn't use the mini-golf or lawn bowling, but they were setup and ready for use.

The aquarium and Fort Macon were easy to get to, fun for the kids, and fit our little vacation budget.

We had beautiful weather, but unfortunately we couldn't swim or really enjoy wading in the ocean due to offshore hurricanes activity. The waves were huge, and breaking roughly close to shore, and it just wasn't safe for our little ones. However we did enjoy watching all the surfers!

Overall we would definitely be back!

The Lorna Dune was Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week when we stayed at the Lorna Dune! The condo was well maintained and clean! The kitchen had a great amount of dishes, pots, pans, etc. which made cooking a breeze. The ocean view from the tall chairs on the balcony was beautiful and relaxing! Victoria was very easy to work with and provided great information prior to the stay!
