The pictures don't do the house justice. The rooms are all larger than what we had expected. We enjoyed the quick few steps to the beach and fishing off the pier. It was nice to sit on the front deck and see the ocean and the sound at the same time. We especially liked the back porch and ate all our meals out there while enjoying the view and ocean breezes. Don and Joanne were very helpful and always responded to questions promptly. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay in the Outer Banks, look no further - Robbie's Retreat is well worth it and will not disappoint!
