We booked a 2 -bedroomed apartment for 4 nights up to Labour Day. The location is very nice - just across the causeway from the main beaches, a short drive from historical Manteo, and our room had lovely views over the waterway.
Unfortunately, the quality of our apartment wasn't as nice as we expected. I can best describe it as 'tired' and in need of upgrading. The main patio doors onto the balcony were almost impossible to operate - so we gave up and used the door from the bedroom. The level of cleaning wasn't great - windowsills had been missed, cupboards had crumbs and debris and the kitchen floor had been swept but not washed. All of which only became apparent after we'd settled in.
The T.V. in the sitting room had a broken ariel cable - which was replaced quickly - but we never did get a good signal. Our biggest concern was the bed linen - it didn't fit properly and was of very poor quality. The furniture in the bedroom was also ill-fitting (drawers stuck).
So - nothing horrendous - but enough to make us feel we should have booked somewhere else. I filled out a card and informed the Reception staff - hopefully the improvements will be made. This apartment was disappointing and not good value.

The condo is clean and well kept. There were only two cons. The first, the TVs in the bedrooms are extremely small and very outdated. The other con is the unit did not have internet access which made surfing the internet for local attractions and restaurants a headache. We depended on our iphones or were forced to stand in a certain location in the unit to access the internet from the neighboring condo.

first of all, my family loves pirates cove and have never had a bad experience, until now. Having said that, the week we were there the building we were staying in was having major work done on it. I do understand up-keep is necessary, but I'm talking about people hanging off scafolding in front of our windows and outside our deck that faces into the sound; which is what we paid for. This lasted all week long. I went and talked to Ken Herman, who was very pleasant and I was very pleasant also. He offered me $200.00 off on my next stay. Sorry to say,I have not heard back from ken or anyone since then. If we had just been warned of the construction in advance and offered another unit or a discount we would have been prepared. Our vacation is very important to us, as well as our finances and both were not treated fairly and I find that very unprofessional. Please respond if you really care. George Shaw Read more

We have been staying at Pirates cove for 15 years.
Two bedroom condo, top floor. Excellent views of the Sound!
Staff very friendly and helpful. Grounds excellent condition.
Some things that could have been better:
1. Electronic lock on door is a PITA. Code locked us out at exactly 10AM as we were packing the car to leave. Had to go to rental office to get back in. Also a bit of a circus trying to get in forst night as there were no keys in rental package and guard did not know about the code number on outside of envelope.
2. Wind noise on patio doors.
3. Side window had a lot of condensation between the double panes. Hard to see out.
4. No internet access. Yes we knew this going into the rental, but in this day and age HSI should be the "Norm".
Thank you for your stay. We hope you had great luck fishing. The original property you contracted to rent was not in our WEEKLY rental program. All properties in our program are held to a high standard of maintenance and appeal. We are glad you found B1036 to your comfort. Please return and stay with us in the future as the fishing is always grand on the OBX.

This was our third time renting at Pirate's Cove. The previous two times we rented a house so this time we were a little concerned that the condo might be too small. We were pleasantly surprised at how roomy the condo was. The condo was well supplied with everything we needed. This unit was on the third floor so the fact that there was an elevator was a big plus. The view of the sound was great and we have absolutely nothing but nothing but nice things to say about the condo itself and Pirate's Cove. The only complaint we have is that we were supposed to have two parking spots in front of the complex, but from Wednesday on we couldn't even get one spot. We had to park across the street by the fitness center which the rules tell you your not supposed to do. It seemed that most of the homeowners did not make use of their underneath parking or had more than 2 cars. I guess that is their privledge since they live there but we did pay rent for the week and according to rental amenities, 2 parking spaces are included. We will definitely rent at Pirate's Cove again and in fact, some day, would love to purchase a place there.

We have come to Pirate's Cove for a number of years for Thanksgiving and have enjoyed whatever unit we had. The issue that we had this time was that the fireplace (a big deal in late November) "ran out of gas" on Tuesday and no one responded by the time we left on Saturday. Could have used a fix or an explanation.
