Rate Duck

We stayed a Barrier Island Station-Duck for the last week of a time share we owned and sold. I always like the Outer Banks, having stayed there several times from 1980 to the present. We usually stayed on the southern barrier islands, but there were no timeshares available on Hatteras Island. First off, Duck is too pretentious for me - mostly gated communities and private beaches. But I can live with that. What I had a hard time with is the resort management's decision to renovate our building while we were staying there. The bathroom in our unit had been renovated, but with some of the shoddiest materials and workmanship I have seen. In the unrenovated rooms the furniture was literally falling apart. We had a ancient dorm-size refrigerator, and instead of the advertised three-burner cook top, we we given an electric hotplate with the outlet to plug it into right next to it on the wall. Not very safe. And no vent fan under the microwave, so all food had to be boiled, steamed, or microwaved to avoid odors. One day we came home to find a notice that the electricity would be turned off the next morning while they replaced the meter boxes on the outside of the building. The management decided to do this on the hottest day of the year - it was almost 100 degrees - after all of our groceries for the week had been purchased, including fresh fish, and were stored in the 15+ year old refrigerator: quite a challenge to keep it chilled for the 7 hours it took them to finish the job. Some of the other buildings at Barrier Island Station-Duck are much more ramshakle than ours, with shingles falling off and one building with beams supporting the front of the building. On a positive note, the staff was pleasant and responsive, doing what they could to alleviate some of the pain. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There wasn't much noise - but that may have been because all the units above us were empty. Also, be advised that you will have to make a list of all the missing utensils, linens, etc., to give to the housekeeping staff for replacement when you get there. They do have a nice outdoor pool, as well as an indoor pool and gym, but the beach is steep and the sand very coarse in this area of the Outer Banks. We spent a lot of money to stay at BIS-Duck and don't feel it was a very good value. We will probably stay in one of the towns on Hatteras Island next time.
