The website advertised K, Q, Q for ALL 3 BR units. We arrived to a K, Q, & TWIN beds and were told this is how all of the 3 BRs are arranged and that this was the first complaint they had about this. None of the staff were familiar with what the website advertised and I had to point... More

My parents rented 6 units at this resort for 2 weeks in early June. Reading the reviews & viewing the photos gave me some trepidation but our rooms were in good shape. It is somewhat obvious by the architecture and the room layouts that this is an older resort but it seems decently maintained. When we had issues the staff... More

After reading some of the reviews I was scared to bring my family here for our vacation. I was impressed from the start however. We arrived well before check in and were invited by the helpful and friendly front desk team to utilize the amenities. Once we got into our room we did find a few minor issues that were... More

Wasted over 73,000 RCI points for an A/B lockout here. Unit 701 was on the first floor. Arrived to the most obnoxious smell of a cross between mold and cleaning chemicals that persisted through the vacation. The unit was stocked OK, Water from the ceiling leaked onto the B unit bathroom floor. No internet access at out unit. "Sorry -... More

Went down for 4 days/3 nights and VERY HAPPY with most everything. The room was spacious with a great view but DESPARATELY needs updating and there were a few safety concerns brought to mgmt. They seemed very attentive and otherwise it was AWESOME.

Last year was my first year staying at Barrier Island in Duck, North Carolina. I had a wonderful stay. The condo was spacious and provided enough privacy for all three couples staying. Upon arrival, the condo was very clean. The air conditioning was not working, but the maintenance staff assured us that their crew would have it fixed for our... More

This complex was older, however, we found that our family of 7 had everything we could possibly need for a wonderful, relaxing vacation at the beach. Our building 800 was right next to the beach, across from the huge outdoor pool - we could sit on our deck and watch the sunset over the ocean - great views! We had... More

We stayed at Barrier Island Station in Duck the first week of June 2014. We had two 1-bedroom units that shared a common exterior door and washer and dryer. the bottom line: If you come here expecting luxury, you will be disappointed. If you come here with reasonable expectations, expecting a clean, fun place to stay right on the beach,... More

Enough reviews have commented on the fact that this resort is rather old and in need of refurbishment, so there is no need to go over that ground again. Actually, apart from some rather shabby bathroom fittings, our apartment (507A) was very comfortable and clean. The lounge area is decently furnished and the bedroom was large and bright. The unit...

Just go with realistic expectations and you will be fine. Just stayed a week the staff is ALL VERY FRIENDLY. While the buildings are weathered they are not bad. The Kitchen was well stocked and the unit was basically pretty clean (412). The bathrooms need some TLC and I was very disturbed to find that while my unit was listed... More
