This condo is located on Hatteras Island. The area is very pretty with access to a beautiful beach and Pamlico Sound. The location of the condo is in the middle of the village so your view of the ocean on the first floor is non existent. Homes with views right on the ocean and the sound will block your view. The property manager did tell me that all the condo's are priced the same so ask for a rental on the second floor on the sound side for better enjoyment of the sunsets. The condos also have a nice pool area so this would be a nice area to face. Be aware you will need to carry your suitcases to the second floor.
You will also pay a $25.00 registration fee no matter how many days you are staying. I ended up paying $18.00 to another on line company and still paid the $25.00 fee to the management company. I did talk to the management about taking the registration fee off the bill. No luck there and they have apparently had other people complain about this issue. Make your reservation directly with Kevin .Conner at [-]. You don't have to rent for a week which is also nice.
We were given Condo 105 though lots of units available. The unit is nicely decorated and updated. The unit is pretty small so I think it would be crowded for four adults. The photos online is misleading as it makes the area seem bigger than it actually is. The bathroom is small with shower and tub unit. I think the unit might be fine for two adults and two smaller children. The only bedroom has a king size bed and was very comfortable. The air conditioning units kept the place nice and cool. The unit is pretty dark except for the bedroom. There is a walk out patio with brick pavers. Beware mosguitos make it pretty uncomfortable to be outside in the morning and evening. Be sure and pack bug spray.
I think you could do some light cooking if you wanted to do so.
The kitchen is pleasant though we didn't cook anything. I do think management should supply coffee for the coffee maker in the room. I also would recommend the management company provide some coffee in the office area where nice tables and chairs allow you to comfortably set up your laptop to use the wireless internet.
You will need to bring own shampoo, conditioner, and soap. One very small package of soap is provided.
One other issue we dealt with while we were there concerned the lock on the door. We arrived after hours and found a packet with a key and a note. The lock on the door was in very poor condition and the key didn't want to work. The next morning we reported the issue to the woman in the office. I had to be pretty insistent this wasn't acceptable but she couldn't do anything. It was then reported to the management company and a keyless door lock was installed on the second day of our stay. It didn't make a good first impression but it was taken care of in a timely fashion.
While there we walked a short distance to the beach and found the area to be quite beautiful. Sunsets are gorgeous but you are better on the sound side. Don't miss taking the free ferry to Ocracoke Island. October is really a wonderful time to go. Very peaceful and quiet. Lots of places for rent because it is off season.
