humble perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a mini-vacation at this house this afternoon. Fantastic place! The location is incredible, less than a mile from several restaurants, bars, and groceries. The ocean is just across the street, and you can sit on the front porch and watch the waves do their thing.

The front porch has a locking gate, so our dog was able to hang out there without fear of him finding his way off of the deck. The back yard has a fence and gate as well and the warm afternoon sun was awesome. You can pick up the wireless network from the backyard, which meant that we got to use the big table out there as our out-of-town office.

The cottage itself is great. The heaters kept it comfortable temp wise, the bed is comfy, and the huge sectional couch is *awesome* for lounging. There are puzzles, games, and loads of movies for staying in, and the kitchen is well stocked with spices and cooking supplies (pots/pans, decent knives, spatulas, etc).

Perhaps most importantly: Amy (the owner) is GREAT! It's awesome to deal with an individual instead of a crappy rental company. Pricing was easy and affordable, especially considering the radness level of this house.

All in all, it was a great trip, and I'd recommend this property to friends, family, complete strangers who aren't a-holes, you name it. We are already trying to plan a time to go back.

Owner's Response: How did I get so lucky to have the most amazing guests visit my little beach house? It was so nice to meet you both and thank you so very much for the fabulous review! Your patience with the March Nor'easter's damage and flooding was much appreciated since it is the second time in 4 months that our little sandbar has been hit by a big storm. It was deja vu waiting for the foot of water to recede and hauling 8 foot by 5 foot debris from the driveway and yet, you both didn't mind being woken up at the crack of dawn by the sounds of the Dept of Transportation dump trucks moving tons and tons of sand. My sincere thanks doesn't even scratch the surface. To add insult to injury (dripping with sarcasm) you left the house in perfect condition! I could barely tell you were even there and had almost nothing to take care of before the next guests arrived. Shame on you for spending your vacation cleaning!!! Next time you visit I'm going to hide the vacuum! It makes me feel wonderful to know you really enjoyed the house and want to come back someday! I honestly love being able to provide a space for friends and friends to be to come and escape the bonds, at least for a while, of real life. Sincerely, Amy

Great Location - Issues with house and Owner

  • 2 of 5

We chose this house and location for a babymoon - when we first arrived, we were very excited about the location. Literally just a few steps to the beach which was amazing. But then the issues started... and it was extremely difficult to get a hold of the owner. We realized that the Air Conditioning was broken and there were signs telling us not to turn them on. I was 32 weeks pregnant and we also brought our two dogs so it was getting very warm in the house. The listing for the house clearly states there is A/C so we were frustrated to find out that it was broken. We then were unable to connect to the wifi. We both brought our laptops with us to check in on some work details and were unable to log on. We finally got a hold of Amy later that evening and she made a few phone calls and we were able to use the neighbor's wifi. She said she would call back the next day about the A/C. We hadn't heard from her by late afternoon the next day and it was getting very hot so I finally got a hold of her and she told me she had window units in her shed that we could install or she could arrange for someone to come to the house. We didn't want to be inconvenienced waiting for someone to arrive and my husband has installed them before so we told her we would handle it. She was very nice and offered to give us some of our money back for the inconvenience. The window units worked great and everything was fine with the A/C from there on out. But then we realized that the dryer did not work - it heated up but did not spin so it was not able to be used and I texted her twice regarding that and never heard back. On our last night there, we discovered a little hole in the backsplash in the kitchen and tons of ants were coming out of it. I immediately alerted her of this, as well. When I called her on our way home, she said she had a check she was putting in the mail for me that day. It has been 6 weeks and I have yet to see a check from her and I have also tried to get a hold of her numerous times and she will not respond. It's frustrating because we were hoping for a nice, relaxing week away before our little one arrives but we had so many problems and now we can't get any money back like we were promised. The house is in a great location but I feel it needs some upgrades and some TLC.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed there for anniversary and we enjoyed it so much. Glad that Amy's place is super dog friendly! It was just the right size for us and easy access to the beach and tons of videos to keep us occupied at night since we went during the off-season. We highly recommend and would love to rent again. Thanks!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage provided a well needed escape. The house is clean, inviting and has lots of character. We spent a good bit of the morning sitting on the porch and watching the waves roll in. At night, there weren't many lights around (we stayed during the off-season) and the sky was incredible. It seemed like we could see every star in the sky. With the fenced in back yard, we were able to let our dog run around while we relaxed in the hot tub. I think our dog had just as much fun as we did. Amy, the owner was very accommodating as well. She provided a lot of extras so we didn't even have to run to the store. We would love to stay here again.

Excellent, clean, relaxing, doggies loved it

  • 5 of 5

This was the most enjoyable vacation we have had in years. It was on the spur of the moment as I wanted to surprise my husband for our 35th anniversary. We really needed to get away especially since we lost our home from Sandy. I knew that he wanted our dogs to be part of this vacation so I search for a dog friendly place. I found the best place ever! Amy the owner was so great. She would do anything for you, by asking if I needed anything special that she could get for me in order to keep the surprise going.....she was terrific. The house was so clean and had everything that anyone would want in it. The dogs really enjoyed the front porch and the fenced back yard. We enjoyed the hot tub and listening to the waves at night. The location was great, close to everything you needed and just a short walk to the beach. I would highly recommend this home and it is just perfect for a couple who need to get away.

Wonderful beyond expectation!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I decided to stay in a house this time when we came into the area instead of a hotel. We desired the peace and quiet that came with a house, instead of hearing everyone else around us. When we walked through the door, I immediately fell in love! The décor was beautiful, and the home felt so cozy and inviting. Rolling over every morning and looking out of the bedroom window to look at the ocean across the street was so wonderful. The home itself had everything that one could ever imagine that they would ever need on a trip, and some that you think that you wouldn't! Miss Amy keeps everything in the house, and all you have to do is bring yourself! She was so helpful, and let us stay at the house on a very short notice. I can't imagine going back to a hotel now after staying at this house, and as long as Amy has it, we will be back! Thank you for a wonderful time that we will never forget!

Outer Banks Escape is centrally located at the 3 1/2 mile post. The house is separated from the ocean by 1 house and a 2 lane road, Route 12 and direct access to the beach is 150 ft.

From the location it is an easy drive to Duck Village for great shopping or Jockeys Ridge State Park to see the hang gliding demonstrations. Enjoy the Corolla Lighthouse and Whalehead Club 30 minutes north and don't forget to visit the Wild Spanish mustangs that still roam free in Corova.

Take a day drive down the two lane road south to Cape Hatteras and climb the iconic lighthouse or spend time getting to know the local catch at the Avalon or Nags Head fishing Piers.
