About Donna Peele

This is the last step to make an all inclusive experience in the Outer Banks for the water sports enthusiasts. Those who visit the property for lessons, camps or gear would always ask, where should we stay??? Watermen's Retreat was built for all of those who wanted to stay on site after being on the water all day!! REAL Watersports created ‘on-the-fly’ coaching to use personal watercraft as a teaching tool so instructors can be with students 100 percent of the time and make the experience as fun and safe as possible. The approach earned REAL Outside magazine’s “Top 10 Adventure Camps in the World” distinction in 2004. Ever since they’ve been helping turn an extreme sport into a mainstream activity. Developing the sport, instruction and now accommodation makes Watermen's Retreat the best place to rest after a full day playing on the Pamlico Sound or Atlantic Ocean.

Donna Peele purchased this condo in 2009

Why Donna Peele chose Waves

Whether you are traveling to REAL and Cape Hatteras to learn to kite, surf or standup paddle, or you are traveling with a mixed group, some kiters, some not, some surfers…You know the drill! Living right on top of the action allows everyone to do what they want to do, when they want to do it! Watermen’s Retreat takes the “ski in and ski out” concept of mountain sports and applies it to the water. Everyone in your group will be happy all the time and nobody will ever have to be chauffeured anywhere.

Wow I was blown away

  • 5 of 5

Watermen's Retreat was so much nicer than I would have ever expected. everything from the teak floor to the custom sinks and counter tops were really sick.

I just came here to do some kiteboarding and have a good time, but now I am planning a trip back with my whole family.

These are really high end accommodations for a great price. The facility at REAL is REALly amazing!

Thank you Waterman’s Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Waterman’s Retreat. My wife and I spent 5 amazing nights this past October.

I was very impressed from the design and the decoration of the units. I have to admit that I actually took some ideas which I can apply in for my own house. The views and the sunsets from your balcony ware amazing. I also want to compliment Steve the chef in the restaurant downstairs and the very professional management of this beautiful building.
