Beautiful, inviting property!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful secluded house in the treetops, but still easily walkable to the beach and tennis. Lovely pool. Everything is clean and tidy, and the house is tastefully decorated. Perfect for a group of folks who want some privacy in the house, and at the same time have comfortable get-together rooms. The screened in porch is a highlight with comfortable furniture to relax in for reading, napping, talking, eating, watching the birds and hearing the frogs. It comes with kayaks which can be launched in the canal at the back of the house. Great BBQ area and game room. Besides beach, tennis and kayaks, we went into Duck on numerous occasions (few minute drive) for coffee, seafood and the Boardwalk. We loved it!

Second Nature Exceeded Every Expectation

  • 5 of 5
When I just couldn't take the snow and ice any longer I decided it was time for OBX. The moment I arrived I knew I had hit the rental home lottery. The home is so peaceful as it is back in a wooded setting and overlooks a canal but still just a few minutes to the beach. I was there by myself as I needed a meditative retreat and it provided me that. But I can't wait to go back with friends or family to utilize all the amenities of this well-designed home.
The home is a short drive to Wright Bros. Memorial and Jockey's Ridge State Park. If you like craft beer there is the OBX Brewing Station close by and Weeping Radish before you get to OBX. German butcher makes all kinds of brats and things you can eat there or bring back to house. I prefer eating at home so if you like to cook Second Nature's kitchen is great for that.
Dennis the owner could not have been more helpful and made me feel so welcome in his home. I wish I was there right now and will save up for a return trip.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation was the perfect blend of relaxation, excitement, entertainment, and communion with nature..The owner was very good in communicating the area's assets and attuned to our needs. The house was very comfortable, from the up to date kitchen to the comfortable beds..and the pool!! We enjoyed just hanging out in the house and on the property..great family atmosphere.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5
It has been several months since we enjoyed this lovely house but while looking for another one (for another trip in another state) I was reminded of how much we enjoyed this place. From the moment you walk in you feel at home. The decor is beautiful and all the beds are very comfortable. The view is absolutely exquisite and you will see all kinds of birds. My sister spent a whole day at the house alone to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surroundings. The neighbors were very helpful though we never experienced any problems. This was a trip for my husband and I but he was not able to go at the last minute and I was able to grab some girls to come. We all had a blast and I will absolutely be back with my husband! Thank you for sharing your home.

absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5
From the sun rise 4 blocks away, to the sunset 1 block away, and the whole day in between, this place is the tops. You are close to activities, if thats what you want. Or there is plenty to do here, if you don't feel like leaving. I/we can't wait to come back...already looking to rent again in the fall
