Hi -

I'm Gracie (the beautiful brindle) and behind me is Brinkley (he's a golden). We're from Virigina, but have lived all over the world. We LOVE the Outer Banks so we had our people buy a property.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

Rose Cottage is our house. Our people know what we like and this is PARADISE! I can run, swim and play - while Brinkley lounges by the pool. Inside we have plenty of room to spreadout and relax.

The beach is close and we like to chase the seagulls. Our people seem to like the place too. They sit around all day oohhing and aahhing about the privacy and beautiful sunsets.

All in all this is a really great place for us ... and our people.

We had the best time! Everything was just as we imagined it. The pool was a great gathering place. Enjoyed the quiet & serenity - yet we could drive a short distance to the busy part of the OBX. Definitely a place to come back to.

Excellent Albemarle Sound Experience

If you are looking for a place that is on the ocean front and in walking distance to restaurants etc on OBX, this is not the rental for you. But if a bit of privacy on the Sound is appealing, this spot is pretty close to perfection. In addition to its beautiful location, it's very well appointed -- much more so than my other rental experiences -- with exactly the things that make for a great vacation week and without clutter one sometimes finds in a home that is rented out. We found it clean and well maintained. There are lots of comfortable places to hang out to watch the wildlife, sunset, and the tides. The kayaks and canoe were great fun and in perfect shape, along with oars and life preservers. OBX is only a few miles away if one wants to spend time at the ocean front or eat out. I highly recommend Colington Cafe in Kill Devil Hills -- it's worth the drive. Altogether this was a fabulous place to spend a relaxing week!

Owner's Response: Love to hear about great vacations like this at Rose Cottage. We offer an alternative to the typical OBX beach house with lots of privacy an room to relax on the waterfront. We furnish and decorate Rose Cottage as we would like to have it if we lived there, and work hard to make it a very welcoming environment. Thank you for sharing your experience and we hope to see you again at Rose Cottage!

Relaxing retreat

Just returned from a wonderful vacation at Rose Cottage. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Everyone loved the pool, the kayaks, the great big yard and the shade from the trees. The house was a bit futher from the ocean than we had originally thought, but it is also away from all of the crazy traffic. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and just relax then this is the place for you. It is quiet, peaceful and has amazing sunsets.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Our goal is to offer a vacation experience different from the typical beach box vacation. The grand Cyprus trees in the large back yard provide the perfect relaxing setting for swimming, kayaking, roasting marshmallows by the fire pit, or watching the sunset. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again at Rose Cottage.

Charming Cottage with lots of character away from it all!

Our family arrived on Sunday to a peaceful, out of the way retreat. The house is exactly as pictured and very cozy. It was different from other beach vacations homes as we felt more in the woods than at the shore. There were 4 adults and 6 teens in our party who were ready to go. The location of the cottage is poor for kids who want to do a lot of activities. Everything, including restaurants is a good 10-15 min drive so the parents were thoroughly exhausted carting the kids to the beach, laser tag, teen night, the mall, out for pizza etc. The amenities were a nice addition. The pool, kayaks, deck and hammock were heavily utilized and a welcomed relief for parents to keep teens busy. They had no complaints whatsoever and all loved the house. The downside from the parents other than location was dust and cob webs. I am not a neat freak but when the kids are screaming every 2 min because they see spiders/other insects and a child has to resume allergy medication because her reaction was so bad I feel the need to comment. I get the location induces the insect environment but a more frequent and thorough cleaning of the windows and sills, the porch furniture and beams in the bedroom ceilings would help to keep the insects at bay. The house was disappointing mainly because of it's location---I thought I booked in Southern Shores----this is actually Powell"s Point and never being here before, I didn't know the difference. I wanted to be in Southern Shores next to Duck as was recommended by a friend. We made the most of it and enjoyed our stay. My only advice is know your location before you book and ask if not clear.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear about the problems our guest had at Rose Cottage. We truly want every guest to have a wonderful and relaxing vacation when they visit. We do state in the first paragraph that our house is located in Powells Point, 10 minutes from the Ocean. VRBO uses selected regions for listing properties, and Southern Shores is the closest region (10 minutes away) to our cottage.

We are located in a lovely wooded setting sitting among old grand Cyprus trees. There is a lot of undeveloped land around, which makes a very private relaxing setting. With that may come a little more nature than you will find in a typical beach box. We have the property sprayed every three weeks for mosquitoes and other insects, and have regular treatments by Orkin. We have contacted the management company out cleaning dust of the beams of the cathedral ceilings and exposed beams.

My husband and I are from Northern VA, and needed some quiet, R&R...Rose Cottage delivered. Upon arrival we were greeted by the view of the sound and the beautiful backyard. The cathedral ceilings in the living-room, wall-to-wall bookcases, and leather furniture created a warm, relaxing atmosphere. The master bedroom, on the second floor, is like a secret hideaway, with a built in hot tub. My husband and I enjoyed laying in the pool and kayaking along the sound. We plan on making Rose Cottage one of our frequent vacation locations.

Owner's Response: We're glad that you enjoyed your OBX vacation. We love the Outer banks and want all of our guests to enjoy the amenities of Rose Cottage as much as we do. We look forward to your return trip.
