1980's called. They want their green carpet and southwestern patterned furniture back. 55 creaky wooden stairs to get to our unit (108). Knee replacement, anyone? Pack light! No ocean or sound view. Lovely view of a chain link fence and air conditioning units below. Black mold in top and bottom of shower off master bedroom. Mold around toilet and in the shower of the loft bedroom. Soap scum in upstairs bathroom. There is a window with a wooden window sill in the loft bathroom. Why? The wood is damaged and moldy. I wore my sandals while showering. Cracked and broken tiles on sink. Mold in cabinet under sink. Water damage throughout the unit. Duct tape to keep the draft out of windows. Dusty and broken mini blinds on windows. Mold around the vent fan in the loft. Nails sticking out of the carpet in the loft where the floor sags. Bugs and cobwebs all over the ceilings and flying around in the loft. Dirty sagging furniture from the 80's. Loose outlets, possible fire hazard. Kitchen was large, but dirty. Everything had a sticky film on it and smelled old and musty. Many cracks and water damage on the multicolored walls and ceilings, assuming from past water damage. I wore shoes at all times in our unit and washed my hands constantly.
On a positive note, you can drive to a parking lot right next to beach access on the property. The beach is wonderful! Quiet, relaxing, plenty of beautiful shells!
Duck is a wonderful location with lots of cute shops and restaurants. Also a short drive to the Currituck Lighthouse and the Wild Horse Tour spots.
The Outer Banks has many things to do! We spent an entire day driving from Duck all the way down to Ocracoke. This covered 200 miles back and forth, 2 ferry rides, and 3 lighthouses, and a beautiful drive along NC 12 beaches (Rodanthe, Hattaras, Avon, etc).
Roanoke Island and Manteo are great historic locations to visit.
The beaches are pristine and great for a day of sandcastles and seashell collecting.
I would recommend the Outer Banks to anyone, but cannot recommend this resort at all!
