Why The Owner chose Manteo
It is located in Manteo which is like the TV show 'Mayberry'. It is also the location of where the first colonists landed in America. It is filled with history and culture. It is within walking distance of a lot of various attractions and only a 10 minute drive to the oceanfront. It is within walking distance of grocery stores, banks, drug stores, etc...
What makes this house unique
It is peaceful and very relaxing - a good place to 'unwind' after boating or a day at the beach.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful experience during our 5 night stay in downtown Manteo. This house is clean and tidy and has the perfect walking location. We had a mini family reunion and enjoyed staying here. The owners are so friendly and were easy to work with. We plan on making a stay here a yearly event.
