We stayed in a roomy two-bedroom unit (13A) on the first of three levels. The kitchen was well equipped. One bedroom had a queen-size bed with a master bath (hot tub and shower). The other bedroom had two twin beds. The second bathroom had a steam shower. All rooms had plenty of windows, and each bedroom also had a glass sliding door that went out on to a private balcony. Since we were a corner unit, the front balcony was very spacious. We were very pleased with the accommodations. I would highly recommend it. The only thing that would have made these accommodations better was if we were in Beach Club I (beachside) in a unit facing the ocean. Not all units were occupied, so I didn't understand why we couldn't have been assigned one of the beachfront units.
I'm rating activities as fair, because there was not a lot going on, but we were there in off-season. We came across one woman in the office who could have been a lot friendlier and helpful. But everyone else there were very pleasant.

The location is great, right in the middle of the Outer Banks so it does not take long to get anywhere. You can get to Carolla to the north and Hatteras to the south in 20 minutes.
We found some great restaurants, although for some reason, all the ones we tried in Kill Devil Hills were disappointing.
Through the resort, we took a tour to Ocracoke Island. What a great place! I would love to spend a few days there. It's 100 miles away, but definitely worth seeing, especially if someone else drives.

Although the rooms may seem a little outdated, it was clean, comfy, and homey.

The master bedroom had a queen size bed, and the other bedroom had twin beds.There was a balcony that could be reached from either bedroom that had a couple of chairs and a little table. The porch area in front of the door had a round table and chairs, where you could sit outdoors when it's nice. The telephone in the living room is equipped with a jack that you can plug a lap top into. If your internet provider has a local access number, you can connect to the internet for no charge, as local calls are free. The unit was in excellent condition.
There is a nice clubhouse where various activities are held, and an indoor and outdoor pool. There is a child pool too. You have to cross the road to get to the beach and then climb stairs to walk over the dune.
The timeshare is located in an area close to many restaurants and shops. There is a small outlet mall nearby. We could see the Wright Brothers Memorial from our bedroom window. Jockey Ridge State Park was about five or six minutes away.
The only drawback was the walk up to our unit on the third floor. They do have a constuction type lift to take your luggage up, and that was a big help. The staff is friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a one bedroom timeshare featuring a full kitchen, open and spacious living and dining area, single bath and a kingsize bedroom. TV's located in both the livingroom and bedroom. Many little extras like coffee/tea/hot chocolate service, dishwashing soaps and paper towels in the kitchen helped us to settle in before our grocery shopping trip.
Convenient laundry access: at the base of each building is a coin-operated washer and dryer ($1.25 each). The laundry room is accessible by room key so I could just drop off laundry and return to my room until the cycles finished.
Quick walking access to the beach or clubhouse with heated pool and recreation area.
Quick drive to grocery (and other) shopping and sightseeing.
