To put it simply: we had a great time. The house is beautiful, spacious, and conveniently located. The open floor plan of the top floor allowed for group meals and hanging out. The decks were the perfect place to spend the evenings watching the sun set. Not only is the beach a few minute walk away, but the pool is another great place to hang out and cool down. While a car is nice to drive to some of the shops, there were places within walking distance: a Dairy Queen, a convenience store, a souvenir shop/trading post, and a bike store.
The owner was willing to work with us as a non-family group and was quick to answer questions, even while we were staying there. Overall, we loved our time spent in the Outer Banks - our only wish was that our vacation could've lasted longer!
