“Old time good time”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Ditto on all counts, by far the best value on the beach.
Good luck trying to make a reservation, they stay booked up a year in advance so that should tell you something.
Not a place that's going to welcome loud partys, so just come relax and enjoy what nature has to offer.

Room Tip: All the cabins are within 100 ft. of the ocean so there all good.

I actually hesitate to write this review because this place is such a gem it could be a mistake to alert other people to its existance ! This is a small complex of 11 units or cottages, including efficiencies, 1,2,and 3 bedroom units. They all circle around a private parking lot. It is like a small self-contained community. My sister and I found it by accident a few years ago when we stayed overnight at a chain motel in the area and we decided to give it a try the next time we traveled to the Outer Banks.

The first time we stayed for two nights in one of the efficiencies but when another guest showed us her cabin we immediately made reservations (a year in advance !) for that cabin for a week. The only week available that fit our schedule was at the end of October 2011. Oh, my, what a fabulous week it was ! I have never been much of a beach lover but that week definitely changed my mind.
The cabin we chose is probably the most popular one, just steps from the sand. We could see the waves from the enclosed front porch and were able to practically step from our beds out to photograph the spectacular sunrises every morning. In October the beach is pretty much deserted except for a few hardy fishermen or beachcombers but the weather was often lovely enough for long walks or sitting in a folding chair and enjoying the sounds of the surf and thousands of migrating birds .
The cabins are fully equipped with kitchen utensils, bedding supplied once a week, fresh towels every 2 days if you leave the soiled ones outside (no one comes into your cabin). Color TV,AC, comfortable beds, baseboard heat in main areas, small portable heaters for the bedrooms.
Immaculately clean, more privacy than you would expect with the units placed so close together. A really nice touch is that the owners put a wooden sign on the outside of your cabin with your name on it if you stay for a week or more. We have found other guests to be very friendly & respectful of other's privacy. Even during a motorcycle rally the first time we stayed, it was very quiet.
We used the AC twice during the day last October, and had to turn on the heat the last 2 days. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it was very sufficient since we had brought our own heater and heavy blankets (they remained in the car).
There is an outdoor shower & a fish cleaning station for those who need them. Scott and Irene are fabulous hosts, always ready with suggestions about where to eat or where to go. There was a bit of a "Nor'easter" the last 2 days we were there (OH, how magnificent the ocean was !) and Scott hosed down our car before we left because it was covered in sand. The folks who bring the fresh towels & clean the cabins are super nice, too, and we got hugs all around when we left.
Of course we made reservations again for the same week (all that was available !) again this October before we left and we have spent 10 months anticipating another week of bliss. I have NEVER felt so relaxed and at peace as I have at Ocean Side Court.

Room Tip: Don't pick the one closest to the sand- that's OURS!
