Terrific location. While not ultra modern, the facilities were up-dated, clean and functional. We had no issues during our entire stay and look forward to visiting again. Extremely convenient to the beach.

I have been to this resort several times and have never been disappointed. I found out that the nice lady who checks you in has been there for 32 years. She is friendly and helpful. The resort is always clean and well maintained. The location is close to many nice restaurants and things to do. Highly recommended!

The Golden Strand is perfectly situated on the beach in Kill Devil Hills, NC. We had an amazing view of the ocean, surfers, fisher people, etc. Nearby (within several blocks) were grocery stores, shopping, Wright Brothers Memorial, restaurants, and anything else you might need. The beach is 30 seconds from your door. The unit we had was large, well designed, great kitchen, etc. we couldn’t have asked for a better place to enjoy exploring the Outer Banks.

My family and I stayed here for our annual summer vacation. Location and price were both excellent. My only recommendation would be to upgraded the kitchen appliances. Refrigerator was rusting and the stove was a 1980 classic. I would definitely stay here again though.

Super beach and beach access. Easy check in and check out, except the women at the desk was a bit “rough”. The resort and room were extremely clean. The only thing preventing a five star review was the A/C was inconsistent and the beds were extremely hard.

The beach is beautiful.. I didn’t really get much of a southern feel .. lots of local restaurants but we didn’t eat at any one place we thought was fantastic.. I think this would be good for teens and college students who only want a beach and booze .. I like something a little more historic .. the condo location is perfect and the layout and cleanliness is absolutely top notch .. if you like the outer banks this is the condo location for you

If you are looking for something right on the beach then look no farther then The Golden Strand! Although there were some cosmetic issues like water damage, etc... The units are clean, well stocked and the staff is overall friendly!

The Kill Devil Hills / Kitty Hawk area in the Outer Banks is our favorite vacation spot. This was our first time staying at The Golden Strand and our expectations were exceeded. The beach location of the resort and the view of the ocean were fantastic. Although not the Ritz, our 3 bedroom unit was spacious, the bed was comfortable, the other furniture more than accommodated our needs, and it was just overall nice. Since it was just my wife and I, the lack of other onsite amenities was not important to us; the beach was all we really wanted. One big thing we really appreciated was the fast, simple check-in; no lines to the desk; no "sales" concierge that try to sign you up for their timeshare presentations that we've experienced at other larger resorts; and no other sales pitches for discount coupon books. We plan to make The Golden Strand our new go-to resort in the OBX.

My favorite resort @ OBX, whether RCI or not. Friendly, courteous, and attentive staff, great rooms that are well appointed, million-dollar views of the ocean and beach, all in addition to the plethora of attractions of the OBX. I love it
