Well , I think its relative. I do not find anywhere to be a long walk to the GCH. But some would find the walk around the marina a bit long, especially if they had mobility issues. I have never counted the steps but there are many houses closer then they are. (And quiet a few farther away!). I have heard people complain thats its a far walk to GCH. We almost always stay at the houses on that side of the marina. It is a VERY far walk for mobility challenged to the TTC!
I suppose its relative. If your walking /moving miles in the parks all day all these distances are really minimal.

We loved Tuvalu when we were there and didn't find the walk to GCH long at all and DD was only (brand new) 3 at the time.

It would be my choice again if we ever stay non-CL.

We were suppose to be arriving in 10 days for our first ever long anticipated Poly stay but switched and I agree people who have trips planned need to know what is going on beforehand.

SO true. It is obvious that I am not happy with the construction, but I feel bad for the people who don't know and are walking into this blind. If you know and choose to go that's great, but to be unaware would be such a shock.
