This was our first trip to the Outer Banks Beach Club. Having always rented a house in years previous, we were nervous to be switching to a condo. We had nothing to fear. The GOOD: Check-in was a breeze. The employees are so kind and generous... and always took a moment to just TALK to you... how refreshing. The units were very clean... even up to my sisters standards, so that's say a lot. The resort grounds/amenities were clean and well maintained. Some here complained the decks are "shared"... they are fairly quiet. Not private, but quiet. We liked talking to our "neighbors". Part of the vacation experience. We were in a unit across the road and it was still a shorter distance (about 300ft) to the beach than we were anticipating. You're within the resort grounds for the whole walk except crossing Beach Rd. We had a maintenance issue with the air conditioner. An employee showed up within 10 minutes and fixed it... so hats off to responsiveness. The storage units under the buildings are a great idea... no lugging sandy buckets, chairs, etc... up the stairs and into your condo... but make sure to bring a lock. "Just for the Beach" rentals is directly beside the resort, so if you forget anything, no worries! The resort also offers umbrella/beach chair rentals onsite... they'll even set them up and take them down each day for no additional charge. A great service! There are washer and dryers under each until... so you only have to take half your laundry! Finally, the resort is in the middle of all that the OBX has to offer, but still feels private. Restaurants, mini-golf, grocery stores. Beds were COMFY!
The BAD: With the exception of the clubhouse area, they charge for wireless internet connection. It's not the "Fully Stocked Kitchen" that we were told. There's no steaming pots for shrimp/crabs, one 9" pizza pan. No croc-pot. No oven mits. There's one (Large) gas grill for the units across the street but no charcoal grills. The decor could be a little more on the "beachy" side. The mirrors and light fixtures could use some updating. My biggest complaint is not about the resort itself... but the beach in front of the resort can get busy... not Virginia Beach/Ocean City busy... but busy by OBX standards. There was always a "front row" of umbrellas and most of the days there were people scattered in behind. If you don't mind walking a hundred yards or so up or down the beach, you could find some private space.
Over-all. We loved the place and will certainly be back next year.
