We had a wonderful time at Reel Fun and would whole-heartedly recommend to anyone looking for a well-equipped and clean vacation home that just has that little extra something to make it feel like a home away from home. The views are great. If anyone is hesitant because it looks over a campground....don't be! The ocean and sound views are spectacular and the owner even provides binoculars for watching the dolphins and kite surfing action. We actually had family staying in one of the condos in the full ocean-facing building in Resort Rodanthe, and we actually preferred our view to theirs. Plus our building had an elevator, and theirs did not which was a big plus. Also, our deck/balcony was very private (more so than theirs), and we loved sitting out there in the mornings and having our breakfast.
The owner was very easy to work with and got back to every email I sent in a timely manner. She sent great information on the area and couldn't be more helpful. She even sent an email to me the day after we checked in to make sure we were settled in well.
The beach was great. The kids loved it. We have been vacationing in the Outer Banks for the past seven years, and the beach was one of the best we have been on. It was wide and uncrowded. We loved the beach chairs, umbrella and beach cart provided, and the deck walk to the beach was wonderful especially with our two-year-old twins.
There were a lot of fun and interesting things to do, but we especially loved checking out the kiteboarders from the new kiteboarding school and shopping center right down the street. Perhaps next year we'll even take a lesson ourselves!
We were also very happy with the WIFI and the linens that were provided. Plus there was plenty of room for our family of five. If there was any drawback, it was that the closest big grocery store was about 25 mins. away, and the dryer took quite a long time, but these things in no way diminished how much we enjoyed our stay and Reel Fun will be the first place we would choose to book the next time we come to Rodanthe.
