Teresa's Water Retreat was amazing. We enjoyed sitting on the patio, watching the fish jump, the ducks and the occasional boat or jet ski. We put the kayaks in and paddled around in the canal. Just a short walk over to the sound where we enjoyed floating around on our tube. Also just a short walk is a wonderful little dive bar called Barry's. We ate there twice, great food.
Teresa and her husband were terrific hosts. They checked in on us a couple of times during our stay, but if we needed anything, just a text message and they would take care of us. Would love to return again.
Water Retreat is at the end of the road in the cul-de-sac. The land is level. All hooks are at the trellis. She even has a clothesline for you to use. There is a nice concrete patio with a picnic table, firepit and Adirondack chairs. They brought over kayaks for us to use. Beautiful view across the canal. Nice neighbors next door and they have a sweet dog, Walnut, who came over to visiit with our dogs. Teresa and her husband are both so sweet. If we needed anything, they were just a text away. We enjoyed our stay so much. I hope to come back again soon.

We love Teresa‘s place. Quiet and peaceful, Sitting by the water and watching the birds. Great place to rest, and even get a little work done. Teresa and her husband are the perfect hosts.
Sitting by the fire at night is beautiful!
Shopping is close by if you need it.
There’s even an arcade two blocks down the street.

Beautiful and peaceful
This is our second visit to Water Retreat. Teresa is such a gracious host and she takes care of everything on her gorgeous property so well. It is impeccably manicured and such a beautiful, peaceful place. The ducks often visit and occasionally a nice neighborhood dog comes by to check in. This is by far our favorite Hipcamp location and we like to spend our anniversary here every year.

This a large, beautiful waterfront site! Teresa is wonderful to work with and is very accommodating...even allowed us to arrive a bit early. We would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Water Retreat! It was the best spot in the neighborhood. Being surrounded by water kept us somewhat secluded from the neighbors and other campers, yet close enough to enjoy their presence.
And to top it off, the cove had some pretty big large mouth bass, which makes it a top destination for my husband :)
The lot was very well kept and Teresa and her husband very accommodating!

The space was beautiful enjoyed the water views and easy access to go kayaking. The hosts were great and would love to return again!
We loved walking to the nearby restaurant for dinner that we became “regulars” for the week :)

We had a lovely relaxing weekend on this well maintained property. The host Teresa was quick to respond when we had some questions at arrival. We hope to make it back for another visit soon

We had a wonderful trip! If you love water activities they are right there at your campsite! We were so happy to find a place that wasn’t crowded like the beach “resorts” aka parking lots- so much space! The beach is about 15 minutes away. The site was very well maintained and had a beautiful patio and fire pit. I highly recommend BJ’s cafe a few miles down the road for lunch or dinner, Owens in Nags Head for a nicer dinner, and Sanctuary winery has great wine. Thank you Teresa for sharing your water retreat with us! We will be back soon!

Beautiful site and wonderful hosts! Lots of space for activities with water on two sides so no close neighbors. Hosts are very responsive if there are any needs.

Best full 50/30amp hookup w/Wifi!
Peaceful, level lot with water (canals) on 3 sides and a distant view of Currituck Sound! Plently of rooom for our 32' Imagine trailer and truck, which we backed down the short road the lot is on, as the host Teresa suggested. Excellent full hook up (50amp, water, sewer, which is rare within 3 hours of our home in Va) against a sterdy wall (great design) which made all connections convenient and easy. Wifi worked superb, in fact, best wifi we have had on the road. Wifi is critical for us as we are teleworking while we camp about one week a month. Beautiful sun rises and sun sets. Some shade on lot, which was nice while sitting enjoying the views and hanging with our dogs. Dogs loved roaming and sniffing the large lot. Boat ramp on lot provides access directly into the canal with quick access to the Currituck Sound. Host provided kayaks were very nice (1 sit in/1 sit on) and made "canalling" fun. Not lugging our kayaks is a big plus! One night was cool enough for a firepit which set on a concrete pad with two annarondik chairs provided by the host. Wood we purchased from hosts was in the same bin on-lot next to trash disposal. Accomodating friendly hosts and friendly neighbors. Glad we booked here, our first hipcamp experience. Thanks Teresa for offering your property!

Beautiful place on the water.
Beautiful place! Water on two sides, large lot with lots of grass. Great fire ring and place for outdoor meals or enjoying the water view. Hosts are friendly and provide assistance when needed. Highly recommend for a quiet spot away from the typical crowded camp grounds. Will definitely return.

This was the second stop on our short trip, and we only stayed two nights, but absolutely did not want to leave! The site is extremely well kept, has a concrete pad, with a fire ring, table and a couple chairs. Having full hookups for our camper was great. The surrounding area put us in mind of a small retirement community, with folks cruising around in their golf carts, and it was quiet in the evenings. We walked over to Barry's for supper and a couple beers our first night, no frills down home kinda bar, our kind of place. We put our kayaks in the water for a morning paddle in the sound the next day, and if we would have had more time i would have done some fishing for sure. The neighbor seems like a good fella, he spoke to us briefly at Barry's and his extremely well behaved dog would come to the edge of the yard and wait for us to walk over and give him some love, he and our dog Willow became best buds. Teresa was a great host, we were running a little early and since the site was all ready to go she had no issue with us setting up a little early, which was a plus, and then she checked in with us later in the evening to see if we needed anything. We definitely will be back when we can stay longer. The site is in a great location, short drive to the banks, a seafood market and grocery store nearby, and a quiet location to unwind. Definitely recommend!

Wee contained space
It is a nice level spot with a nice patio and yard. There are a couple of friendly dogs that may come and visit but they were not a bother.

Beautiful and peaceful
We were fortunate to find Teresa’s wonderful Water Retreat through Hipcamp and stayed for a 4 day weekend during Memorial Day. The site is just gorgeous and meticulously maintained. Beautiful flowers and trees adorned the patio area. The water surrounds 2 sides of the site and the views are so pretty and peaceful. The neighbor and his dog are super nice and nights are quiet and peaceful. Teresa is so kind and helpful. She checked on us a couple of times and she brought the most thoughtful gift. We also added the WiFi service and it was great. I highly recommend the Water Retreat and will definitely return!
Beautiful site/Wonderful hosts
The grounds were fabulously maintained and the hosts were super welcoming and responsive. Spent time exploring the Sound on our kayaks and the area by car. Lots to do! Neighbors were friendly. We were in a pop-up camper so the noise from the bar/restaurant across the canal disturbed our sleep a bit. That may not have been the case with an enclosed RV. Great time!

Great FHU stay with large yard
Great full hook-ups and fast WiFi. Our gracious host, Teresa, was so helpful and accommodating. Big yard for us and the dog to hang out next to the firepit.
Our truck + trailer combined is 45 ft. and would recommend folks to reverse into the site from the intersection (cul-de-sac is tight) to avoid driving on the nice neighbors' grass.

It’s a great location! Beautiful views! Comfortable chairs and a nice fire pit. Fishing and crabbing was FUN! Treasa brought us fishing poles and firewood and very easy to communicate with. I highly recommend camping here!

Our stay at Water Retreat was our maiden voyage in an RV. Teresa was incredibly welcoming, she had even made us personalized cards that left is with extra treats for the kids. She's got a passion for creativity for sure!
She was responsive, answered any question we had and checked in to be sure we had everything we needed, which was an absolute yes. We were able to fish, kayak, paddle board, swim, throw sticks with our dog and relax as we have not relaxed in way too long. The beach and sand dunes are a short and easy drive and have us extra activities, though we could have easily started on property the entire time.
We were spoiled by the experience and every time we rave about it to others, we end with the fact that we're not sure we're going to find a place like this anywhere else!
