I could sit on the balcony watching the ocean forever. Looking foward to our next visit. Thanks Whale Watch for the amazing memo

We enjoyed our two-week stay
Tina S. Oct 2022
Whale Watch is a beautiful condo. One of my favorites, for sure. It's comfortable and clean and kitchen in well stocked. The views from the deck are priceless. We always enjoy our trips to Hatteras. But this stay was extra special. We will definitely be back.
Donna E. Sep 2022
We love staying at Whale Watch. Comfortable home with fantastic ocean view.
Whitney A. Jul 2022
Everything was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our week. Plenty of dishes and pot/pans to cook in the condo. Great pool and beach access. We loved the lockers on the ground floor to keep our beach gear.

We wanted something on the beach and away from the hustle and bustle of some of the more commercial spots on Hatteras Island, and this fit the bill perfectly. We loved being able to walk right out to the less crowded beach and waking up each morning and enjoying a sip of coffee while listening to the ocean is great. We also had fun hunting for ghost crabs. You’re also close to the ferry to Ocracoke which is a great place to spend a day. I will say that dining options are a bit limited and you have a fair drive back to some of the other spots you might want to visit (about 90 min back to Nag’s Head to see Bodie Lighthouse). It was exactly what we wanted but that will depend on your preference.

One other comment - the elevator was not working during our stay, which means you’re climbing to the 4th floor. Didn’t bother us at all but it did make packing up the car to head for home.

We found the condo perfect and we will definitely try to book here again when we come back to OBX.

We love the views and location of this condo unit! It is well appointed and had everything we needed. With 4 adults, the seating in the living area was a bit tight. We only felt it on rainy days. The pool and access to the beach make this a great place to enjoy Hatteras Island!
Russell B. May 2022
Whale Watch was the very best condo we have stayed at there at Durant Station WE would love to stay there again in the future
Jimmy L. Feb 2022
It's right on the beach, amazing view from the master bed, living room or balcony. Well equipped and very clean, one of our favorite places to stay in Hatteras.
Noreen J. Nov 2021
From our first step into Whale Watch, our stay was amazing. The condo was very well appointed, we had everything we needed. The view was incredible. Every morning my husband and I sat on the balcony drinking our coffee, watching the fishing boats, pelicans and dolphins always kept us amused. The only thing I hated was leaving. Can't wait to book our next stay. Thank you Whale Watch for a relaxing week and memories that will last a lifetime.
Richard S. Oct 2021
Whale Watch has SO much to love! The master bedroom on the ocean side, a large comfortable deck for sun and moon rise, the views and sounds of the ocean's times and tides and all the amenities you'll need! This was our 2nd visit and we WILL BE BACK!
Denise H. Sep 2021
Great place right on the ocean. Fully stocked with cooking supplies. Would definately return again!
CHARLES R. Sep 2021
Loved the location of Durant Station condos. Room 302 is super with the front bedroom overlooking the beach.
Karen M. Aug 2021
Condo has a gorgeous view of ocean, has a well stocked kitchen and plenty of room. It’s easy sitting on the balcony all day soaking up the sun with the ocean view and sound of waves!
Gary H. Jul 2021
We stayed at Whale Watch from July 10th to July 24th and the condo is wonderful. The owners have decorated it very nicely and there is nothing better than laying in bed during the night and listening to the ocean. We love Hatteras Village and the location of Durant Station. We highly recommend Whale Watch and plan on renting it again. We have been going to the Outer Banks since 1985 and 2 weeks is not enough time to enjoy the wonderful area.
Nancy H. Jul 2021
Easy walk to the beach, shower and parking. Nice little place to stay!
Dave S. Jun 2021
The condo was clean and the view is spectacular! Will definitely book here again. The reality company was great to do business with! Highly recommend
Kathleen S. May 2021
Unit was lovely but AC not effective. Alexa may save $$ but bedroom was stifling. And unstaffed hatteras Realty office was not convenient.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback, Kathleen. Our office is currently closed to the public, and we apologize if this was an inconvenience. Phone numbers are posted on the doors in case guests are in need of local assistance. The thermostat will be increased by approximately 4 degrees by our local co-op on days with high temperatures to help with overall power usage. The bedroom will be the same temperature as the rest of the home during this process unless a vent in the room is closed. Thank you!

The ocean view
William W. Jan 2021
Overall the condo was satisfactory. There were several things that needed repair right off the bat I don’t think anyone had been there for a while. The smoke detector would go off anytime one tried to make toast or use the oven when that happened we had to open front and back doors to get a breeze through the place. After several morning and evening alarms we learned to open the doors before cooking. Great views of the ocean and beach, really nice walks and we could see sunrises and sunsets this time of year. A school of dolphins cruised just off the beach everyday. Would be 4 stars with alarm fixed.
Manager response:
Hi, William! Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We have advised the owner of your concern with the smoke detectors' sensitivity. We hope to see you again!
