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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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... More
