We've just returned from a week at Dunes South and enjoyed our stay very much. The unit(306) was spacious and clean. I think these units are heavily used which accounts for the carpeting being less then ideal. For us the important aspects were the proximity to the beach and they very friendly guests staying in the other units. Also that... More

I went last September, and will go again this September. This place is affordable, comfortable, down-to-earth people, very friendly. All items needed to eat and clean are in the kitchen or small closet, the stack-washer-dryer worked great, the bathrooms were in good condition. The parking is adequate, there is a nice tennis court. There is a small outdoor shower and... More

We have been owners at Dunes South since 1979, and we own three weeks in unit 312, which is right on the beach. We have one summer week and two weeks at Christmas. Although it's nice to come in the summer, we prefer the winter weeks at the beach to just get away and relax. Most winters are still warm... More

I rented unit 308 the week before so I was a little apprehensive but it turned out to be a very nice unit only about 40 yards to the beach. The unit was clean and well supplied. It had two bedrooms, two bath, and a jacuzzi in the master bathroom. The master bedroom had a TV with cable which was... More

We just returned from a week long stay at Dunes South. We had stayed here 2 years ago and had a better experience but this time we actually left a day early because the furniture and beds were so totally uncomfortable we couldn't stand it another day. Pro's: Close to the beach. Close to fishing pier and awesome Fishheads Bar... More

We exchanged on our timeshare for a week. Great beach front. We stayed in condo 323. The condo had some updates but could use some updates in the kitchen. Overall the charm grew on us for our first visit to Nags Head.

We are still staying in unit 306, one house off the beach but great views and large space. We have three bedrooms and a double bed in the loft, so really 4 bedrooms total. The decks are great, the area is nice and the beach is perfect. Having three baths is also nice. We exchanged using RCI, we have stayed... More

This was our first time staying at Dunes South, and we stayed one house away from the beach. While not ocean front, it had a gorgeous ocean view from both the living room and master bedroom. The master bedroom had an amazing Jacuzzi tub - perfect for soothing sore muscles after long walks in the sand. The management staff was... More

We stayed here with 3 young children (one being a toddler) and it was decent -- not fabulous, not terrible. This was a trade through RCI. We stayed in Unit 301. Pros: 1. Great location, MP 18, nice walkway, and access to beach. 2. Well-stocked bed linens & towels. 3. Bathrooms, bare floors, kitchen were very clean. 4. Management staff... More

This place is incredibly outdated. Have been coming her for years because a friend owns a share! NOTHING much has changed in 20 years! The unit we stayed in was dirty, outdated, beds uncomfortable, carpet is gross...wouldn't let a baby crawl on it! Food on the floor behind the furniture. My dogs even came home with fleas. Each year the... More
