Reviewed 10 June 2014

We stayed for a week in June. The weather was nice. The view was very nice. Since we have never been there before, I relied on their advertisement video. It is misleading. There really is no ocean to swim in, meaning it gets deep immediately. There is the beach to walk on. I certainly would never allow my children more than a step into the ocean there. NO one was swimming. We did go to Frisco beach, which was really nice. The pool and our king suite with loft were clean. We did enjoy ourselves. Our only real disappointment was that we expected to be able to swim and boogie board in the ocean right there.

My husband and I recently spent a few days in the outer banks on the way to a family wedding in NC. What a wonderful find this property is. We couldn't have been happier. It was clean and comfortable and direct ocean front. It doesn't get any better and reasonably priced. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. We hope to return when we head back to the outer banks.

Stayed in Room 524 with 2 grandchildren (ages 8 & 11). The registration staff were friendly and courteous. The room was clean, plenty of towels & daily maid service. Beautiful view with wooden deck chairs with a table to have my morning coffee. There were a lot of stairs to climb but it was O.K. and well worth the view. The kids loved the pool & hot tub. My only complaint was the access to the beach. It was difficult for me to access the beach because of the erosion & sand bags. You can go right or left after exiting the stairs & the beach widens but you have to climb over the sand bags if the tide is in. There are plenty of places for public access to the beach so it was all good. We would definitely stay there again! Thank you so much for adding to our wonderful vacation experience.

Room Tip: Definitely take the Ferry to Okracoke Island, that was a fantastic experience!

We stayed for only one night, but so enjoyed this pristine site facing the Atlantic Ocean! The kind hostess gave us keys to check out a couple rooms. Visitors should note that the beach views had several sets of stairs. There was a closet, but no hangers, and a clothesline for beach towels, but only small bath towels provided. My husband was glad he brought shampoo, as the only toiletry provided was a little bar of soap. We found the room quite comfortable. Beach view room was $119 a night, with taxes $134.17.

Location, location, location. Personable owners. We stayed for a week in early May with another couple at one of the two bedroom villas at the Lighthouse View. Our apartment was spotless, with two full bathrooms, one for each of the two bedrooms, and a half bath off the living room/kitchen area. A fully equipped kitchen, including a dishwasher. A vacuum for mid week clean ups. A daily morning towel exchange for as many/few towels for which you wanted clean replacements. The owners and employees at the front desk were extremely helpful with any questions we had. The location would have allowed us to throw a stone into the surf. All night long the surf lulled you to sleep. Two absolutely spectacular decks over looking the ocean, complete with deck chairs and tables, one outside the 3rd floor living room and one downstairs outside the queen bedroom. The heated pool and hot tub, spotless as well, and delightful. We absolutely loved the small town feel of the Lighthouse View and the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Check out the campus map on their website.

My wife and I arrived late in the day in Buxton to find our original reservations to be a bust (see our other Buxton reviews). We checked Tripadvisor and called Lighthouse view. Wow!! For a modest amount more we got ten times the room and a great property.

We stayed in one of the cottages. More of a luxury house than a cottage actually. First, the most important factor is that the staff were so nice. After a terrible letdown at a nearby establishment, they were kind, courteous and let us preview 2 cottages (both equally excellent).

The pool and hot tub are clean and comfortable. The cottages have full kitchens, enough room for a large family, decks, furnishings, etc. They even have charcoal grills all about the property.

Extra bonus, you literally can see Hatteras lighthouse from the property. We had a full moon for great ambience and could catch the light at night. Very romantic and relaxing. We want to come back as soon as possible.

Tips: Captains Table is the best for eats; Conners for groceries, for family pizza, etc stop at Angelos and throw some treats to the property cats.

Room Tip: Try the cottages. Remember, this is the outer banks. There are barrier dunes and there has been a...
