Visit September 6 - 9, 2016. Stayed in two bedroom lockout unit. Complex needs major updates! Furniture appears to be original and needs replaced. Once updates are made in units rating should improve. Complex is oceanfront however condos are not. Tropical storm passed through Sept 4th and 5th. Rip current bad Sept 6th. Otherwise no issues. Ocean temps were warm... More

We have been trading through RCI to stay at BIS since 2009. We continue to come back for the location, which is second to none. With the beautiful beach and being within walking distance to the sound-side boardwalk in Duck, BIS is located on prime real estate. This year, as with last year, we stayed in 706A, a two bedroom...

Pros: great beach a short walk away. Even though we had a small unit (1 BR) there was a shared washer dryer with one other unit. Place was clean. Nice outdoor pool. Cons: The place has to be 30+ years old. Felt like I was teleported back to 1980. (Not really where you want to go when you're on vacation.)... More

Gated Resort area that is seriously striving to make a come back. New management and possibly new owners are investing capital to completely upgrade the resort. The exteriors have been almost completely renovated and now some repairs are needed due to the hurricane. A lot of the interiors still reflect the 80's and therefore are tired. The resort is on...

We are owners and have been coming to BIS for 31 years. The location and beach are first rate and the new management company has demonstrated great promise. After exterior renovations are completed, they will begin updating the interiors. New decks, staircases, windows, etc. have helped greatly. We do miss water aerobics as an activity. It's great to have a... More

This was a premier resort, then the maintenance was lax. The new management is making improvements, which is much needed, they still need to replace the furniture and add a second cable TV back upstairs. The activities are weak and should offer more for kids and adults. The resort is in a great location on the Outer Banks.

Interiors need to be redone. Kitchens are outdated. The Micowave above the stove didn't work, so a huge counter top microwave replaced it but it took up most of the counter space. Furniture beat up. Everything inside needs improving...the AC vents are in the wrong places and since it is two floors, the place needs to be zoned. There is... More

It's obvious by the terrible patch job that maintenance is aware that there is a water leak issue. Now, during the thunderstorm, water is streaming out through the wall and out our light socket! Because it's after office hours there apparently is no one who is available to remedy the situation. Unacceptable. We'll be considering a rental house next year.

Excellent accommodation for the family and couples. The premises were very clean and the staff was very accommodating. The Barrier island Station was built 30 years ago- and has been updated on the outside and is currently undergoing renovations on the inside. All new decking throughout. Although built 30 years ago, this location is excellent and very reasonable. On the... More
