by William F Kelly, Glastonbury, CT 
First printed in May/Jun 2011

Our vacation last Summer came about through a wedding being held in historic Williamsburg, Virginia. I found a week from II online that worked for us; two-bedroom/two-bath, sleeps six, at the Historic Powhatan Resort. It started with just two of us, my daughter joined us mid-week, and finally 3 more arrived at the end of the week for the wedding, building to six in our unit.

The Powhatan Resort is a very large property (256 acres per RCI) with 888 units by my unofficial count. The resort has four outdoor tiered pools, one indoor pool, several ponds, tennis, mini golf, kid's playground, basketball, exercise room and more. Sunday check-in went smoothly, but upon entering our unit, we found the guest bedroom was without power, as well as the foyer between first and second floor units and the outside lighting at the front door. Also, the patio screen door was propped up against a side wall, and the deck was covered with leaves and geese droppings, a very obvious oversight of housekeeping. We notified maintenance immediately, but when we got back late from dinner, we couldn't see the key card slot on the outside door in the very dark foyer door.

It was relaxing and comfortable

Williamsburg is a great spot to vacation. However, it would be even better if the amenities were updated. Some of the appliances were out dated and did not operate properly. [more]
