About Karen or Steve Sawin

Steve & I purchased this condominium for our retirement. We grew up in Wisconsin, married and attended university there. We owned an oceanfront motel in Kill Devil Hills for 45 years and still live on a portion of that property. We have two children and have 6 grandchildren living on the Outer Banks and another child and four more grandchildren on Chapel Hill, NC.

Our son Christopher is the director of the Dare County Arts Council half a block away from this rental.

Karen or Steve Sawin purchased this condo in 2004

Perfect?

  • 5 of 5

My 2 friends and I stayed at this comfortable condo for 4 nights in lovely downtown Manteo (pronounced Maneo by the locals). The view from the balcony was fascinating with all the boats coming and going in the harbor and folks milling about. The apartment was on the 3rd floor but the elevator is quite close and there are grocery carts in the underground parking (where we had our own parking spot) to take suitcases, etc. up to the condo. It was very quiet and well lit at night which was my only complaint: if you are used to darkness in your bedroom, I recommend wearing nightshades. It's not luxurious but it's definitely comfortable and the rates are very reasonable for what you get. There are plenty of things to do and see right on Roanoke Island (the Elizabethan Gardens and Bodie--pronounced Body--are not to be missed) and we walked to restaurants 3 of the 4 days we were there. The proprietors are extremely accommodating and easy to work with however they don't take credit cards so be sure to bring a checkbook. We'll be back!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

What a great location in one of the quaintest towns in the area. The condo is spacious and well laid out. The porch overlooks the marina and is a wonderful place to start your day with a cup of coffee and a sunrise. We will definitely be back!!!

Fabulous views!

I visit Manteo several times a year and I must say this place is in the best location if you enjoy Old town Manteo Area and has the best view. The condo is very spacious and comfortable, at a most reasonable price.

A wonderful condo with a balcony and a great view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well-maintained condo right on the harbor. The view from the balcony, the living room and and the master bedroom is fabulous! You see modern boats and a replica of a historic ship. The condo itself is very spacious, has lots of light (with shades everywhere if you don't the sun to wake you up early). There are several little stores on the ground floor, a restaurant across the street, a very nice cafe (Kafeehaus) right behind it. We did not have any problems with the municipal Wifi which allowed us to stream movies at night and covered most of the living room.

Steve is most accommodating and was very helpful and patient with our late arrivals (fortunately he lives nearby). He alos gave pointers on some his favorite restaurants in the area.

The surrounding area is very nice for long walks and has charming cottages lining narrow leafy streets. A great experience overall!!!
