Best things about resort
Plenty of room in two bedroom condo right on the beach with most of the rooms oceanfront. At first, we were disappointed that we were in unit B1, one row back on the side, first floor. That proved to be a non-issue as we were high off the ground and still had an ocean view from our balcony. The unit was very well-equipped with kitchen items with lots of counter space for food preparation. The extra blankets and towels in the linen closets were much appreciated as was the more than adequate closet space. The use of the free laundry room was great. We enjoyed daily walks up and down the beach and beautiful morning sunrises. The beach right in front of the condos was a bit narrow but walking a couple of minutes in either direction gets you a wider beach. We were there in September so beaches not crowded but occupied with people swimming, reading, fishing, walking.
Best attractions or restaurants nearby
The Grand Strand is in an excellent location to take in both the northern and southern outer banks. We traveled to Corolla a couple of days. Took the Bob's Wild Horse tour which was lots of fun. Visited the Currituck Lighthouse, small heritage village, wildlife exhibits, etc. We went south a couple of days to Hatteras Island and visited Bodie Lighthouse, Pea Island Refuge, Graveyard of the Atlantic - all worthwhile. We also spent a day on Roanoke Island visiting the lovely Elizabethan Gardens and the Roanoke first settlement. Just down the road from the resort we visited the Wright Brothers Memorial, hiked the Jockey's Ridge Dune, and hiked the trails in Nagshead Woods. We had a wonderful birthday meal at the Flying Fish Cafe which was perfect for a special night out. We had a more casual meal at Goombay's Grill right across the street from our resort and were pleasantly surprised at the appealing menu selection and the quality of our meals.
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at The Grand Strand. We would go again and would recommend to others. The unit we stayed in was very well equipped, very central to site seeing, and we enjoyed staying right on the beach.
