The Penthouse: Ocean Views from Condo at Barrier Island Station in Duck
average rating of 3.0 based on 2 reviews
Farmington CT

If location is a top priority and you don't mind stairs, go for it!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this unit shortly after the previous reviewer. The management company has addressed the air conditioning by installing a window unit in the main level bedroom. We were comfortable on both levels all week. Yes, there were many spider webs on the deck, and they seemed to grow as the week went on. We chalked it up to nature. And it helped to trap the morning bugs.

By asking questions of the management company and seeing the pictures, we were aware of the stairs. They weren't fun by any means, but for an able-bodied family of four definitely manageable.

The location is outstanding! Steps from the pool and beach with beautiful views of the ocean. We did not envy folks that had to drive from other units in the resort to park closer when going to the beach. Kids loved the pool!

The kitchen and bath upgrades were very nice. Water pressure was weak, especially on the second floor shower. But it was only for a week, so manageable. Second floor bed was not as comfortable as the main level bed, but still nice. I liked having the Master suite upstairs. Needs a laundry basket and a remote for the dvd player. Unit was clean on arrival.

All in all, we enjoyed vacationing in Duck, Barrier Island Station, and The Penthouse.

four flights of stairs high ( not listed) poor a/c and spiders/cobwebs Inside and out

  • 2 of 5

Remodel of kitchen and bathrooms was nice but the lack of a/c and poor water pressure in showers was definitely a bummer! Also we were not aware that to get to the "Penthouse" you had to climb four flights of stairs. Many spiders and cobwebs in unit and on deck need to be addressed weekly by cleaning staff.
