After years of coming to the Sanderling under previous ownership, I was excited to see the renovations by the new owners. The inn looks fantastic! Tons of natural light, beautiful decorating with clean, minimalist lines without being overly contemporary. We stayed in a poolside suite and the room was terrific. Comfortable sitting area, spacious room and huge bathroom! The fire pit and pools were a great addition, as well as the decks perched upon the dunes. I love the orange accent color used on everything from the towels and umbrellas to the bikes and uniforms. The grounds looked beautifully landscaped as well.
Service was for the most part excellent, we had a few housekeeping calls and they were responded to immediately with a pleasing smile. Check in was much the same. The only spotty service received was at the adult pool, where we had to go to the inn to get someone to give us cushions and towel covers. However, the weather was hit and miss showers that date, so that could have caused the service to be a bit lacking.
After such a great girls weekend, I am heading back down next week for a family trip in one of the houses. I am thrilled to see the family friendly activities they have available. We will do the sandcastle building on the beach and the kitty hawk kite demonstration with our little one. I'm also looking forward to yoga on the beach! I will check out the spa services and try out Kimball's Kitchen.
Great job renovating a jem of a property in Duck! But please don't price out the customers that have been coming for years ($5 for a small bottle of water poolside is a bit ridiculous... It should be complimentary, like the awesome coffee and newspaper).
