The house was fantastic and huge. We could have stayed with another family. The proximity to the beach was great, as well as close to other OBX towns with fun things to do: the dunes, Corolla Lighthouse, Aquarium, etc, and being a quiet street with no traffic was a huge benefit.
Private pool with child alarm on the back patio porch was very helpful and the hot tub was great for an evening soak.
If I go back to the OBX, I would absolutely stay at Show Boat again.
