This is a great location and an awesome getaway place to spend quality time with others. We have been here multiple times and will continue to come. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

Room tip: There great. Would be nice to have a place to BBQ outside and a place for kids to play.

The trip was great even without wind. Their customer service is top notch and they do a very good job keeping the vine inclusive. Food at the restaurant was great, live music every night if you want to be social. All was really good except no wind which I cant blame them for.

If you are planning on visiting the Outer Banks or more specifically Real Watersports, you can't stay at a better place than Waterman's Retreat. The quality of the accommodations are second to none, absolutely perfectly located (next door to Real Watersports) and impeccably maintained. The staff are amazing, friendly, accommodating and considerate. After a day Kiteboarding you can sit on the balcony and watch the coaches blowing up as they throw huge ariels and next level tricks as the sun sets. Stunning. I strongly suggest that Waterman's Retreat is your first and only choice for a place to stay.

Room tip: Go all out and take one of the Penthouse apartments, you will not regret it and it is more than worth the cost.

Rooms are great! People are cool! and the atmosphere chill. My advice....pay up for the view from the balcony. I really like how once they have my card on file and as a guest I can use the bar and grill and not worry about carrying my wallet or credit card around. Super easy.
