We chose to stay here for our first visit to the Outer Banks, avoiding the more commercialized communities further north. The location here can't be beat as other reviewers have said, at the edge of town with miles of undeveloped National Seashore to the north. The main buildings are set right at the water's edge, with photos of past flood damage in the office serving as a reminder of nature's fury.
We opted to stay in a larger unit located across the road, which had two bedrooms and a full kitchen. It was very roomy and comfortable for the three of us (enough beds for 6). There is a pool and hot tub on site too.
Dave, the owner, was super helpful. Anything not in the unit he would provide. I also learned a lot about the hearty spirit of folks who choose to make this area their home from talking with him. I wish him calm seas in the future.
