Stayed here with a group of 18 in September 2013. My first time on the Outer Banks. Had a blast.
A really amazing experience one night... We went swimming before the moon went out, and you could see Sea Sparkle in the water. It's this kind of bioluminescent algae that glows in the dark and looks like fireflies. It was so beautiful and unexpected and thrilling. Also, while floating in the water, we could hear the whistles and squeaks of a pod of dolphins-- distant but close enough that we could hear them.
-Deck and wrap around porches with waterviews on both sides of the house
-Surrounded by sand, dunes, grass, sea oats.
-All the rooms well appointed and the house nicely furnished, clean
-Well equipped kitchen
-Close to the (free) Okracoke Ferry and the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum
-Really far down the banks. Like legit one of the last houses on Cape Hatteras. If you want to hit a large grocery store, you have to drive all the way back to Avon (30 minutes or so.) Smaller and more expensive ones nearby.
-In September, the waves were too strong for us to swim out very far at all. Maybe that's normal for this area though.
-Sand spurs. Not technically a fault of the house but seriously those things hurt so bad to step on.
-Exterior lights didn't work when we stayed.
-Bathtubs in several rooms had a slow drain. Probably because of sand from feet of past guests (and maybe us, too)
Overal though, a great stay. Great house for a large group.
