Acqua- Great !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a most wonderful stay at Acqua ! This is truly a place if we were going back to the Outer Banks that we would want to stay ! Our grandchildren absolutely loved this place,especially the pool & hot tub ! As nice as the house is itself, dealing with the owner, Kim was even nicer ! All the reviews I read about the house were accurate, as well as the owner's description of the house ! I would most highly recommend Acqua to anyone looking for a rental house at the Outer Banks !!

Lighthouse Ladies

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this beautiful home. It was more than enough room for our party of 8 to enjoy time together and spread out when needed. The view was spectacular and the walk to the beach was very convenient.

My mother and aunt love to visit lighthouses and they had never traveled to the OBX. They raved about the beautiful view, relaxing home, and scenic area. My husband and I have been traveling to this area for 15 years and we are glad we had the chance to share this with our family.

Loved. It.

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about the wonderful time I had at Acqua. The house and furnishings are lovely, and it was the perfect setting to relax and reconnect. God smiled on our February weekend, too; sunny skies with temperatures in the high 70s! It felt more like May!

Kim was great to work with and went out of her way to make logistics easy. We will definitely be staying here again!

Like A Home Away from Home -- Only Better!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely vacation rental on the Outer Banks. The house is beautifully appointed, with an excellent location, right across the street from the beach, near grocery stores, restaurants, shopping. The house is very well-designed. For example, there is a fun bedroom for children, located on the same floor as two master suites, so parents can be close by at night. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and eating at home; the great room is cozy and comfortable. This house is so well-maintained and so thoughtfully decorated that it doesn't feel like a rental; it's like the home a good friend who invites you to visit at the beach! Kim, the owner, is wonderful to work with -- responsive and thorough. We had a memorable long weekend and look forward to renting this house again in the future.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

9 of us plus 7 month old baby travelled from Perth Western Australia to spend a week for thanksgiving with our extended American family. After travelling more than 30 hours, 3 flights, then a hectic week in Disney world, then a long road trip up from Florida, it was like paradise. The house was amazing. Very well equiped for us all. Mum and baby were able to settle. It was our haven for such a short time but was well worth the trip. Our American family had a 20 bedroom house for 40 and that was a mad house so it was great to "come home"

I would love to say that we will be back, but given the distance, it is unlikely.......but we will definitely be telling our friends. Cheers Lorne Trish Jaime Sam Andrew Lauren Lorraine Lisa Allan and baby Cody
