What makes this house unique

Savor a variety of casual fine dining experiences at unique local restaurants. Catch your own dinner - go fishing in the surf on your own beach, from a fishing pier, or from one of the deep-sea charter boats. Take an ATV outback tour to see the famous mustangs in the Currituck Wild Horse Sanctuary. For the fitness enthusiast, go jogging or bicycling along the Duck roadside path. Sit back and relax while enjoying a sightseeing cruise. Explore one of the nature preserves to view the many species of waterfowl and birds indigenous to the island. Or simply enjoy ocean-side living at your beach house: swimming/playing/sun- bathing in your private pool, sipping a beverage at your poolside Tiki bar, cookouts, picnics, family gatherings, games, sunrises, and sunsets. And there's always the beach for swimming, surfing, strolling, shelling, building sand castles, sunbathing, or bird, dolphin and people watching. Try exciting water sports like jet skiing, kayaking, para-sailing, and surfing. Play golf at one of the six island golf courses (and there's even Putt-Putt for the children). Take a leisurely drive around the island and among the many sights visit four historic lighthouses, the North Carolina Aquarium, the Elizabethan Gardens, and the Elizabeth II, a full-size reproduction of a 16th century sailing ship. Join in the Centennial celebration of the Wright Brothers historic flight by visiting the Wright Brothers National Memorial and special exhibitions. Climb the highest sand dune on the East Coast - Jockey's Ridge State Park - a great place for kite flying and hang gliding. Sample the end-to-end island shopping delights. Discover treasures in charming boutiques, arts and crafts galleries, souvenir shops, or the outlet center. Watch history come to life and experience America's oldest outdoor drama 'The Lost Colony.'

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an absolutely perfect week. Weather was great, afternoon storms. The pool was excellent -- the boys (children & adults) loved the pool basketball goal & all the rafts, etc. We greatly appreciated the gate @ top of steps & all the outlet covers! The movie choices for kids were great. Ping pong during naptime was fun for the adults. There was not one thing that we could've needed. Poolside grill was great -- no propane for gas grill; thankfully we didn't need it.:) Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Not worth the price

  • 2 of 5
We were last year in Kitty Hawk and for same size house we paid only 1/3 of what we paid for this one. Only that this one had an inground pool that the kids wanted it. Once we came in the pool was all dirty and no chlorine in it. We called management office three times but no action on their side. To not mention that the kitchen was full of ants, the bikes were broken and the gas grill didn't work. We were told to go and buy a tank as they do not cover for it. We will not use this office anymore. The owner should find a better manager for this property if he/she want happy customers.

Owner's Response: Owner's Response: I’m disheartened by this review. I’ve owned/rented this home for 10 yrs & have consistently upgraded the property throughout that time. I’ve actively solicited reviews from guests; this is the only truly negative review received. I’ve utilized the services of the prop.mgt.team referenced in the review for 8 years; as an absentee owner, it’s imperative I employ the services of an agency that is both responsible/responsive; heretofore, they’ve proven to be such a group. They’re located close to my home & have been vigilant in joining me in my efforts to ensure an enjoyable vacation experience for my guests. Regarding the issues in the posted review: the pool is a salt water pool--the chlorine is generated from salt rather than strong chemicals; I assume the “no chlorine” comment resulted from the lack of the usual strong chlorine smell that permeates a standard chlorine pool. I contacted my pool vendor; he said he cleaned the pool about 9 am Sat. (guest arrival day) & on Wed. for the midweek service. He said they had storms a couple weeks ago that may’ve resulted in leaves blowing into the pool but he never received a request to come back & re-clean the pool. Upon investigation, my prop.manager noted, “I don’t know who they called regarding the pool not being clean because we have no work orders in the system for the pool.” My manager said they were called by the guests on Mon. reporting there were ants in the kitchen & the grill didn’t work. He noted, “There is a work order regarding the ants and we did dispatch a vendor to take care of this the same day they called on 7/26/10.” Regarding the grill, he said, “As you know, we ask the guests to replace the gas for the grills, but again I have no information in our system about replacement gas, just that the grill did not work.” If guests produce a receipt for a tank refill, I’ve authorized my agents to reimburse them. I also provide a charcoal park grill for alternative use in such cases. Regarding the bikes, my managers were told for the first time they “were broken” when the guests checked out. All 4 bikes were brand new at the start of this season so my mgrs inspected & reported the "bikes are in perfect working condition & the grill needs gas" that they will reimburse. In sum, this is more than just a rental property to me: this is my home at the beach & I treat it accordingly; I view the families who choose to stay at A Pelican’s View as guests in my home & treat them accordingly.

This house was great! We usually stay at a friends house but they don't have a pool. This was our first year with a pool and it was great! We lounged by the pool, played a ton of ping pong and the kids got a lot of use out of the game systems. We also played board games (also provided by the owner). The kitchen was well equipt with everything that you would need to make your meals. We also used the outside cooler to store our drinks!
The only down side to this rental is that everything costs extra. Early check in (1:00 instead of 4:00), heat for the pool, everything. Not used to that since my friend doesn't charge for all the extra's. Otherwise it was a nice place to stay and I would tell anyone who would want to rent it to do so.

Great for 1-2 families!

We had a blast staying here! The owners put a lot of thought into everything they equipped the house with, e.g. beach chairs, beach toys, pool toys/gear, baby gear (gates, high chair, playpen, toddler flatware/plates), DVDs, etc. We recommend bringing your own bikes or renting them. Bike friendly town with lots of bike paths, and makes the trek down to the beach much easier. The walk to the beach is a little long for toddlers, so bring a wagon, stroller, or pull a child trailer behind a bike.
