If you read the reviews posted about the Bodie Island Resort it is clear that there is a big difference between the experience of those who stayed in a remodeled unit and those that did not. We stayed in a wonderfully remodeled unit (207, available for rent at the VRBO website) for a very reasonable price. If you like oceanfront...

We love Nags Head and this is our family's summer vacation rental. Yes, it needs updates, but the price, location and staff all make this perfect for our family. The staff is working on updating the building, but that takes time. The view is spectacular, you can't get any closer to the beach, and Mike and Lisa are just amazing....

This was our first time in Outer banks. This place is pretty decent. Saw some negative reviews on this place being rundown and was skeptical. The management informed us this place is being renovated. However , this wasn't the case. The lift worked good. Our room was on the third floor and was very clean. The carpet, sofa, bedsheets -...

We stayed here for a guys weekend of fishing and golfing and for a bunch of guys it was fine. The condo itself, 304, was ok, clean and fairly clean carpets. the building is in major disrepair but did not bother us too much. The room was right on the ocean that made up for all of the imperfections. Elevator...

This place is so run down and needs a bulldozing. It' a mess. I wouldn't stay here unless you are a surfer just for the night because it's right there on the ocean. We found bugs in the beds and bathrooms. the mattresses are so uncomfortable and the furniture in the lilving room is as well. I wanted to le...

We are glad you enjoyed your vacation. We are working very hard to revitalize the resort. It sat dormant for eight years before our company took over in 2009. It is a huge project & undertaking that will take time. We hope that you return next year to see the improvements!

We stayed at the Bodie Island Resort and we had the best service. First of all, we arrived early and our room was ready before check-in. Everyone at the resort was soooo nice. The room was nice and clean. The view from my balcony was amazing! We were within walking distance to Jennette's pier. I wish there was a Bodie...

I booked about 24 hrs before arrival and the very end of season and scored a great last minute deal for unit 106 which has the most amazing balcony view and 2 sliding doors (mstr and l/r).

we booked this place last minute. should have read the reviews..the ones that indicate this place is horrible are absolutely correct. i have a feeling we got stuck in the unit that a previous reviewer said they left early.

I am sorry you had a bad experience during your vacation here. The building and property sat dormant for eight years, between 2003 and 2010. My company took over the project in 2009, and began renovations in 2010. However, it is a HUGE project, and undertaking. We are working revitalizing hard at revitalizing the resort, and it will take time.

“Definitely pick the building that is directly oceanfront. There are 3 buildings and only one is directly oceanfront. And get a unit that is remodeled. From what I heard there are units that are not remodeled.”
