Easter at Grande Shores
Easter at Grande Shores is always an exciting time for our guests and staff. From the moment our guests check in, to the egg hunt held just before check-out time, we want to make sure our families feel at home and welcome.
This year's Easter celebration was a success. Highlights of the fun weekend included our jelly bean count contest, coloring contest, and a duck race for charity on the oceanfront lazy river. The Easter Bunny even stopped by to have breakfast with our guests Easter morning at Shoreline Cafe!
We hid several thousand eggs on the oceanfront lawn for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Kids of all ages had a blast searching for eggs with Easter Bunny. It was wonderful watching all the families have fun together.
We look forward to planning next year's celebration!

"We have stayed the last 3 years and have loved every minute. We can relax and enjoy the ocean views or take advantage of the location and visit the local shops or boardwalk."
- Toni B., 4/17/2019 after a 7 night stay
"We have been staying at Grande Shores every year for the last 3 or 4 years on our wedding anniversary. Everything is always amazing! Our condo is always nice and clean. We always enjoy our stay. We never stay anywhere else because my husband equally loves it and he always says "if it ain't broke don't try to fix it." I would definitely recommend Grande Shores to everyone! See ya next year!
