Very nice rooms (if the whole building smoke alarm doesn't start blasting for no reason),close to the beach, but there is nothing to do but beach it and pool it. Otter Banks has no public transportation, need to drive to everything. Only bicycle and walkway is on Virginia Dare Trail and the cars come so close. As for the elderly,...

My parents have owned a timeshare here for probably 30 years, this year my husband and I rented another unit at the same time for a nice family vacation. For our current family of 5, we had two, two bedroom units with ocean views. Both units were very clean and comfortable. The beds are a little hard and the decor...

The elevator for your luggage was a nice touch. The resort is a older resort but has been kept up. The pool was refreshing but being next to a public walk to the beach was not the best. Unit was clean new carpet but pots and bowls were for big a family. Listening to the ocean in the evening was...

We were very pleased with our stay at The Golden Strand. We stayed in J1, first floor, and had a great view of the ocean/beach. Yes, it is slightly blocked by the sand dunes, but high chairs on the deck allowed you to see fine. The condo is stocked with everything you could want, very clean too. It is a...

You'll be forgiven if you find yourself singing the Golden Girls theme song when you drive up but don't let the exterior fool you. The rooms are up to date, roomy, comfortable, and well appointment. And, almost all have a fantastic view of the beach. There's a lifeguard on duty on the beach making it very family friendly. There's also...

This was our third stay here and as usual, the location is everything. The 2-BR unit was clean and comfortable. Check-in was quick and easy. The grounds are well-maintained as are the units. The attraction is obviously proximity to the beach - a short walk from the parking lot up a flight of stairs over the dunes and then down...

My family and I have traveled to the outer banks for years since I was a kid, it's always the beach of our choosing. It had been 5 years since we had been back to the outer banks up until this past summer and it honestly felt like coming home because this location was perfect. It was amazing! I see...

Staff is friendly and excellent to work with. Great views of the ocean from all floors. Elevator helps out when carrying all of your supplies to the condo. Condos are supplied very well and comfortable. Restaurants and shops are near by. I have stayed here several times and each time is wonderful. Thank you for a great place to stay...

We stayed in a 3BR, 2bath 3rd floor condo at The Golden Strand and were very pleased with our stay. The unit was clean and had everything you need for cooking meals at the condo. The view was great, right on the ocean. Could still hear the surf with windows shut and A/C running. Balcony off the living room was...

Our unit is spacious with a wonderful view of the ocean (which is steps away). The best part is that 2 bedrooms could handle 6 people easily. The kitchen is large and well stocked and ideal for families who cook in the unit to save money. The dining area has ample space for six and there are six places to...
