Looks just like the pictures!!
The condo was clean and nicely decorated with big windows in the living room and the master bedroom overlooking the water. Upon arrival it was very clean and all setup for us. It has a fully equipped kitchen washer dryer two bedrooms and two baths. Even had a telescope there overlooking the water..
I had never rented from vrbo before (or any rental by owner) so I was slightly nervous, but the owners are super nice and set my mind at ease. They also own an organic soap company and included some really nice soaps when they sent us the keys. They were very responsive and even spent over 30 min on the phone with me telling me about all the different things to do on they island and in outer banks in general..
The condo building is somewhat secluded, so it's great for relaxing and just taking in the view. I went with my girlfriend and we spent a couple days just chilling out in the condo just happy we were away from the city and work etc.. The water in the backyard is the sound (bay) and it's clean and not very deep great for kayaking or just taking a dip. It's very close by is the Elizabeth gardens and the Lost Colony theater both of which were very nice and we were able to walk to both of them in about 10 min. The main little town of manteo is only a couple miles away which is walkable, but it was so hot we drove. You have to drive across a bridge to get to the outer banks beaches (nags head etc..) but it only takes about 10 min by car.
If you're interested in renting jet skis I highly recommend doing a tour of the sound. We did 1.5 hour tour which took all through the national seashore area. It's so much better than being restricted to small area. The place we went is right across the main bridge if you're going east towards nags head on the right hand side you'll see signs for jetski.
Overall the condo was great so much nicer than some random hotel room. I would recommend it for couples/families and we would definitely rent this place again.
