Only the two big cabins are truly ocean front. Everything else is set behind and facing each other not the ocean. Second floor units can see the ocean but it's only from the deck and not very well. The units are smoke free and smell fresh. Everything was clean. The staff are always there and are helpful. My shower nob broke and they had it fixed that day. we had a unit with a kitchen. It was surprisingly spacious. My only true complaint is the shower head was only about 5 feet tall. I am 5'8". This was a problem... The location is great. Just down the street from Jeanettes peer. It's at mile 15 1/2 in Nags Head. I would stay here again. I didn't get to use the pool but it looked to be in good shape. the play ground looked scarry, it's old and wooden.
