Barrier Island Station at Kitty Hawk is an extremely nice resort that is in the maritime forest. We stayed in a one-bedroom villa (#2601 on Pine Needle Place). The villa was on the lower level which I was a little apprehensive about but it felt like we were tucked away in our own little forest retreat. There was a nice deck with a screened in porch with a plactic table and 4 plastic chairs which were nice enough to use in the porch. We did hear a lot of noise, though, from our upstairs and next-door neighbors. The walls must be pretty thin. The villa was extremely clean. It is obvious that the staff takes much pride in the appearance of the resort. Appliances were like new. Our one-bedroom villa had a nice jacuzzi right in the master bedroom. The shower and toilet were in a separate room. The sink area was right off of the shower room. There was a nice closet in the bedroom and there was enought drawer space in the bedroom for us. There was a sofa bed in the living area. When the bed was pulled out there was plenty of room. The living area was spacious. There was enought comfortable sitting room for four . The kitchen was very well stocked. Everything was there that we needed and then some! Lots of cabinets. Dining area was spacious, also. Washer and dryer were easily accessible in the nice, clean, wide hallway outside our unit. Lots and lots of trees and wildlife. Right outside of our villa in the parking lot we saw raccoon, squirrels and a fox. (Like I said, lots of wildlife--there was a snake on our deck one evening...just a little one! This place is really in the woods...but very close and convenient to the action!) There is a very nice (better than I expected) nature trail. The grounds are well maintained, with a lot of nice touches. Although the beach was within walking distance, it was inconvenient to walk there as you had to cross the very busy highway and then the Beach Road to get to it. We have always stayed on the beach, so it was different for us to be in the woods, but I liked it. It was a different kind of beach vacation! If you are looking strictly for a beach resort then I would not recommend this one. But if you like nature and a woods environment, then I guarantee you will love BIS at Kitty Hawk.
