Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was perfect for our family. The babies especially loved the pool! We had the best weather for our family group to enjoy the beach. We loved the picture of Madison! Your daughter is an amazing artist. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Great home for families with young children

  • 5 of 5

Every year my family rents a house for the week of Thanksgiving in the Outer Banks. This house was our favorite by far of any we have stayed in over the years. The house was extremely clean and very well maintained, but the thing we liked the most is that this house has a lot of personality (you can tell this right away from the captain out front), this made the rental feel like home for us for the week and not just a place to stay.

The house was a very easy walk to the beach and I loved hearing the waves from the deck! We have young children and really appreciated the sandbox in the surprisingly large fenced in backyard, we were pleasantly suprised to see that the pool had a second fence around it allowing the children to play safely in the back. Our boys loved the bunk bed room and were thrilled with the wide variety of movies available. They loved the childrens books in the bunk room as well. The loft above the family room has a view of the ocean and the kids loved having a special place they could go play and "spy" on the adults.

We cooked a full thanksgiving dinner for 7 and were pleased to find that the kitchen was very well stocked with every pot, pan, and utensil we could possibly need. We are big coffee and tea drinkers and the owners thoughtfully had a fresh bag of coffee and some seasonal teas waiting for us.

The community center was another wonderful surprise! They have a large indoor heated pool, raquetball courts, tennis courts, a playground, large fitness center and even books to check out! In the summer, they also have a large outdoor pool at the ocean (in addition to the private pool in the backyard).

We would definitely rent this house again and would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Wow, what a review! Thank you, Cooksville Mom. Time seems to slow down so beautifuly in November on the Outer Banks. This gives us so much more time to share precious moments with our family's. Our lives are so busy these days, with work and growing young family's, that sometimes we just need to get away and reconnect, to remember what really means the most in our lives. I called Cooksville Mom, during the week, to see how things were going, her reply was, "my biggest decision today was, shall I go in the hot tub on the deck, or walk to the rec center, and swim in the heated pool". Now, doesn't that just say it all. There is no better gift, then being with your family with out a care in the world, where little things mean the most, and time doesn't exist. I am from Pennsylvania, and can't believe how mild it is during the winter months on the island. In January, I sometimes run out of the house for a minute or two, in my bare feet and Pj's, you just cant do that in Pa during the winter. I will still sit on the hammock swing with my morning coffee, if it is mild. Fifty degrees is unbareably cold for the locals, but for a Pa. girl...it is spring time! Thank you, I will never stop letting you all know how grateful I am, that you have made our little piece of paradise, your home away from home...Thank you, Thank you. Karen

This house has it all! Clean, clean, clean! Short walk to beach or Duck. My family of 10 had plenty of room and Karen has thought of everything. All the decks had plenty of nice outdoor furnishings and the Nags Head double hammock swing was awesome. The pool was well maintained and a lot of pool chairs and lounging chairs. We will definitely be back. Thank you Karen for such a fantastic place.

AMAZING STAY!! I WANT TO GO BACK!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing. Owner so great and a huge help and checked in to make sure all was ok. House was very clean and we were extremely happy! Pool was awesome for the kids and short walk to beach. Even did a bike ride to town. Great vacation!! House was beautiful! House was great for people who have sensitive allergies to pets (no pets allowed so this was great)

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Another week in paradise. Staying at McKenna House for memorial day has become a tradition for our 7 Adult family members. The house, its location and the community rec center can not be beat. Karen is a very concientious owner and makes sure everything is ready for a great time. We are planning on returning the same time next year. We all really love McKenna House and all it offers.

Great Family Reunion Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family just enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving stay at McKenna where all reported a great and relaxing time. We had three families at the house and were visiting with another family in Kitty Hawk. We enjoyed numerous family meals easily prepared by multiple people in the well equipped kitchen with 11 people comfortably at the dining room table. The decks afforded great outdoor gathering spots with plenty of sunshine, seating and views. Everyone loved the hot tub at the house and the amenities at the Schooner RIdge clubhouse, especially the indoor pool. We walked all around the village of Duck and loved the soundfront boardwalk. Regrettably, the cool weather made it impossible to enjoy the sandbox and pool, but this house promises to be favorite for young families and is well equipped with a nice high chair, crib and deck gates. Two families were not able to make it this year, but we all agree that we would like to make this a family tradition. The owner is very helpful and flexible which allowed us to customize our stay and maximize our family time and enjoyment.

OBX getaway

  • 5 of 5

You might be a little skeptical going through a website like this because your not sure what to expect, as most times we went thru the big time rental agencies before, but everything here at the McKenna house/transaction was perfect. Karen is the ultimate host.

Her home was perfect for our family gettaway. Her home is very clean and certaintly can accommodate young children. Not to mention all the ammenities that come with her home. You have a very private and secluded pool out back, a very short walk to the rec center w/ tennis courts, etc..., as well as a very close walk to the beach, shops and top notch restaurants.

I certaintly would recommend her home for your next OBX vacation.
