Wow. This property needs help. To be fair, they are in the midst of refurbishing many of the units, which look much improved (judging from the outside). But herein lies one of the issues: because so many of the units are being renovated, you may be surprised to discover upon arrival that you do not have the unit you reserved.... More

This was my first trip to the Outer Banks. We arrived well before the check-in time of 4:00. We went by to see where it was and to see if we could possibly check in early. We were traveling with our 17 month old who needed an afternoon nap! We were at first told that the room was not ready... More

We wanted to get away for a long weekend and use some of our timeshare points. The rooms were clean but very dated. The internet service was horrible. They give you 2 access codes to their wireless internet. We could never get it to work on either the phones or laptops. It's good thing we weren't working because we would... More

I read the other reviews before our visit, so I knew what to expect. This resort is dated and has seen better days. They are undergoing exterior renovations resulting in construction trash and dumpsters over a good portion of the resort and the accompanying noise is a nuisance. We had several maintenance issues, such as a lack of hot water,... More

This place should be avoided at all costs. Buildings are in a state of disrepair, the furnishings in the condos are from the 1980's and have not been updated since then. Wifi never worked the entire time we were there and management never gave us a reason why or apologized for the inconvenience. The beds were the worst we ever... More

First of all,I read the review by happy mdcamper and don't know what property he was reviewing--the nearest Walmart is7miles away in Kitty Hawk-the pool has not been demolished and check in is a permanent office. Having said that,it is a little disappointing to drive in and enter a musty smelling building to register.Not a good first impression The property... More

Left three days early. Units are old but fair and pleasant except all main buildings and pool demolished, piles of rubble. Powerwashing/generators running outside our door all day. Dumpsters everywhere with trash. Check in is in a trailer. All this and they charge $45/week for wifi....really???!!!! Not within walking distance to beach but parking close to beach is provided.

My sister, two of her friends and I shared a 3 bedroom unit in one of the blocks not yet refurbished. Despite it being a bit worn in places it was clean and comfortable and a great location for exploring the area. We arrived in the midst of the Nor'Easterly Storm Damien and experienced super strong winds yet were cosy... More

I stayed here with my 3 kids (14, 6 & 4) and friends (1 adult and 2 additional teenagers). We stayed in 413. We were quite happy with our 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit. From the deck and dining room we had a view of the outdoor pool, the dunes and the ocean. Here is the reality - this is... More

Long story short, as you can read from the other reviews, this place has been on the decline for years! My mother bought this timeshare back when I was in middle school. I grew up with Barrier Island Station. I eagerly looked forward to every May when we would take the 6 hour ride down from Jersey to spend a... More
