You'll be forgiven if you find yourself singing the Golden Girls theme song when you drive up but don't let the exterior fool you. The rooms are up to date, roomy, comfortable, and well appointment. And, almost all have a fantastic view of the beach. There's a lifeguard on duty on the beach making it very family friendly. There's also... More

This was our third stay here and as usual, the location is everything. The 2-BR unit was clean and comfortable. Check-in was quick and easy. The grounds are well-maintained as are the units. The attraction is obviously proximity to the beach - a short walk from the parking lot up a flight of stairs over the dunes and then down... More

My family and I have traveled to the outer banks for years since I was a kid, it's always the beach of our choosing. It had been 5 years since we had been back to the outer banks up until this past summer and it honestly felt like coming home because this location was perfect. It was amazing! I see... More

Staff is friendly and excellent to work with. Great views of the ocean from all floors. Elevator helps out when carrying all of your supplies to the condo. Condos are supplied very well and comfortable. Restaurants and shops are near by. I have stayed here several times and each time is wonderful. Thank you for a great place to stay... More

We stayed in a 3BR, 2bath 3rd floor condo at The Golden Strand and were very pleased with our stay. The unit was clean and had everything you need for cooking meals at the condo. The view was great, right on the ocean. Could still hear the surf with windows shut and A/C running. Balcony off the living room was... More

Our unit is spacious with a wonderful view of the ocean (which is steps away). The best part is that 2 bedrooms could handle 6 people easily. The kitchen is large and well stocked and ideal for families who cook in the unit to save money. The dining area has ample space for six and there are six places to... More

Our 3 bedroom 2 bath condo was on the top floor with excellent sea view and city view. Located at about mile pole 8 it was close to many attractions and shopping. The property is clean and has an elevator near our room. (we had two with us that had need for that). The beds were comfortable - main bedroom... More

Just left The Golden Strand . We enjoyed our week there. Great views, clean property, very large clean pool, and right on the beach. If you want the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep at night, this is the place. Unit was a bit older but very clean and comfortable. The price meet out budget, and it... More

Stayed here two times in J1 ground floor unit. Due to being on the ground floor, the balcony really needs some taller chairs like I've seen at the other units. The view is great when standing but when sitting, its difficult to see anything but the railing and sand dunes. Another thing that would be nice is a fan in... More

We stayed there a week. One of the best places I have ever stayed. Great for families. Right on the beach with their own access and free laundry room which is a plus. I would stay here again in a heart beat. Already booking for next year.
