HISTORIC HOME IN DOWNTOWN MANTEO ON ROANOKE ISLAND

Manteo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Experience the spirit of Manteo on Roanoke Island in the Outer Banks. Built in 1900, with white picket fences, many large rooms with original wide plank pine floors. You can step back in time. The home is filled with period antiques and surrounded with extensive landscaping. There are plenty of outdoor areas with rocking chairs / table and chairs to sit and relax. One block from the waterfront with art galleries, restaurants, water sports, coffee shops and history center.

You can enjoy your morning coffee rocking on the front porch watching the sunrise and the world pass. Take a short stroll (1 block) to enjoy a fresh breakfast then browse art galleries, unique shops or see the replica of the Elizabethan II ship that the colonists sailed.

Jump on the bikes and ride along the paved bike path to the north end of the island to see the Lost Colony Theater, Elizabethan Gardens or nature trails. Or, head to the beach (10 minutes away) for an enlightening experience on the Outer Banks, some of the best beaches in America.

After a day of fun and sun, unwind at the house then cook a gourmet dinner on the grill and eat in the screened in porch or in the antique filled formal dining room. Or walk to a delicious dinner at one of the wonderful restaurants in downtown Manteo. Or you may want to explore one of the hundreds of restaurants on the beach.

You will find plenty of activities to keep you busy and many unique spots if you want to kick back and relax.

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.

We really enjoy the spirit of the Outer Banks and want to share the peacefullness of our Manteo home with you.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

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...

It is peaceful and very relaxing - a good place to 'unwind' after boating or a day at the beach.

CHARMING....HISTORIC....JUST BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
"Picky" is an understatement when it comes to my selection of a rental home for my family! This beautiful historic home won't disappoint even the most discerning renters. It certainly surpassed all my requirements in finding a home away from home! My family rented this "beautiful" historic home set in the heart of Manteo for a summer weekend in June. The house is a block or two away from the Manteo waterfront... boardwalk, shops and restaurants. You can park your car when you arrive and walk and bike anywhere around town. With regard to the house....immaculate and tastefully done. It is cozy and quiet, a decor of period antiques to match the house, and large enough to accommodate your family and friends. Did I mention the back screened porch for morning coffee...or the manicured yard complete with blooming flowers...or maybe the naturally shaded back yard by pecan trees and fresh growing flowerbed herb garden is your taste!!! Even with all this...I believe the most outstanding attribute to this rental home is it's owner Yvonne. Yvonne is the friendliest, most caring rental home owner I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She went above and beyond to make my family's trip to Manteo comfortable and fun! Rent from Yvonne just once and I'm sure you'll be tempted to return. I know I will return....hopefully sooner than later.
Enjoy!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the home and were able to feel the spirit of Manteo. It really makes me feel great when someone appreciates all of the fine details like you did. I hope you will have the opportunity to return soon. Thank you.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME...IMMACULATE AND COMFORTABLE.

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived in Manteo we were somewhat unsure of what to expect. When we pulled in the drive way the first thing I noticed was the manicured lawn. The back yard was beautiful and things only got better. The house was well cared for and very comfortable.

It was a great location because we could walk to the the harbor enjoying the scenery and find plenty of good places to eat without having to jump in the car and go. All the beaches are close by for beach excursions.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this as a place to stay on vacation.

Yvonne, the owner is an exceptional contact. She never left us wondering when we had questions. She was super responsive, and comfortable using email and phone, letting us choose which mode we preferred. Other owners and property managers could learn a thing or two from her excellent treatment of guests in her vacation home. We really appreciate that when we made a few overtures to get to know her better and ask questions about the history of the property, she was willing to make more of a connection with us than a mere cold business transaction, to make sure we actually enjoyed our vacation.

We had a great time on Roanoke Island, as well as all through the Outer Banks, and this property was wonderful. The owner trys very hard to make you feel completely at home. The home is well-maintained, and beautifully decorated. We were made to feel very much at home. The owner that we dealt with, could not have been more helpful or accomodating. This was a wonderful experience, but much too short.

GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a long weekend and the only regret was that we could not stay longer! The neighborhood is wonderful and it was great to quickly feel a part of historic Manteo. The house is a quick walk to the waterfront, restaurants and shops but still is nestled back in a comfortable neighborhood. We had everything we could possibly need in the house and everything was well organized, cared for, and clean. There are plenty of gathering spots in the house (the main living room, front porch and back porch) which made it easy to sit around and visit with family or get quiet time on your own. The owner was extremely helpful, thoughtful and prompt during the entire time from our initial contact to final checkout. This is a great place to stay and we hope to be back for longer next time!

VERY CHARMING HOME IN THE HEART OF THE VILLAGE!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here for three nights and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! The home is just as the pictures show, but even cuter. We also were pleasantly surprised that the home had its own driveway, so there was no hassle with parking either.

This property is ideally situated, just a couple of blocks to the waterfront, restaurants and shopping in the village. There's also a grocery store (Piggly Wiggly) within easy walking distance.

The home itself is nicely maintained, clean, and all of the bedrooms are generously sized. The bathrooms have been attractively updated and offered plenty of excellent quality towels and soaps. We made breakfasts and snacks in the kitchen, which had everything we needed (dishwasher, fridge, nice coffeemaker, toaster, and plenty of dishes/utensils/glasses, etc). The kitchen also has a very pleasant window over the sink with a pretty view, which is something I always appreciate. I loved the front porch with rocking chairs and a porch swing, and I enjoyed sitting out there reading with my morning or evening coffee.

The house has a screened back porch too, and a large, fenced backyard with freestanding BBQ. The rental comes with 3 beach-cruiser bicycles and 4 very nice beach chairs (with reclining backs). The bikes were a big plus and we were very happy to have them. We took a couple of rides around town, and we used the chairs during a jaunt to the beach, which was just a short 3 mile drive to Nags Head.

Yvonne, the home's owner, was very nice and the whole rental experience was a pleasure. This was our first time renting a home through VRBO and we will definitely be doing it again!
