About the property

4 BR, 3 Full BA, 2 Half BA, Sleeps 10.

A large, airy and light-filled beach house provisioned for casual, sophisticated OBX experiences. The location, just over the causeway, is great for arrival as you don't have to contend with Corolla or Nags Head traffic. You can see the ocean from the lookout deck. The beach is a 10 minute walk. We have one of the few traffic light crossings, making it safer to cross over to the beach.

A perfect vantage point for enjoying barefoot beach walks and sun-splashed cocktail parties by the pool. From here it is just as easy to explore Duck & Corolla as it is to see Nags Head & Manteo. Recommended day trips:

1) The Northern Beaches. Explore the shops and cafe's of trendy Duck on your way to Corolla's amazing Whalehead Club, Aquarium and historic lighthouse or play a round of golf at the gorgeous Currituck Club. You may go off-road on the 4-wheel drive beaches for a picnic to see the wild horses or enjoy a spa treatment at the Sanderling resort.

2) Jockey's Ridge/Manteo. A must-see is the world-famous Jockey's Ridge for r hang gliding, kite-boarding, kites or hiking the dunes on your way to historic Manteo with a tour of the Elizabethan Gardens, Elizabeth II ship and the lost colony. Include some bargains found at the Nags Head shopping outlets.

Our restaurants picks: The Collington Café in Kill Devil Hills. The 1587 House in Manteo.

Important: A big advantage for our guests is having a Joe Lamb Jr.'s local reservation agent right on the outer banks to guide you with information about the area and to provide assistance with any issues that arise during your stay.

Guests are asked to contact Joe Lamb Jr. to obtain rate quotes that include taxes, booking fee and refundable security deposit, along with all booking terms & conditions. Joe Lamb Jr. offers guests a number of valuable vacation services at reasonable fees, such as trip protection insurance, bed linens, towels and pool heat.

About Joe Lamb JR.

Since 1968 the Joe Lamb Jr. team of local vacation professionals has been serving people from all over the world and making their dream vacations come true on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We aim for your stay to be less of a vacation and more of a home away from home. For additional information on Show Boat please call our reservation line 800-552-6257.

Why Joe Lamb JR. chose Kitty Hawk

Kitty Hawk is a prime vantage point to explore the outer banks. And Show Boat is central to everything that the Outer Banks has to offer. If you want to head to the northern beaches for four-wheeling, climbing Corolla light or scouting for wild ponies, you are just as close to heading south for Nags Head shopping, hiking Jockey's Ridge and seeing the sights in Historic Manteo.

What makes this house unique

Show Boat is a large, but not overwhelming, home designed with a very spacious and open floor plan for informal social gatherings. It is outfitted with stylish but casual and durable "beachy" furnishings. For those who appreciate privacy and luxury, Show Boat is a great choice. And golfers will love being right on the 18th fairway. Stroll the winding trails and enjoy a pool-side cocktail to cap off the night.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is amazing. The kitchen is a cook's paradice and the kids love the heated pool! It's great to be so close to groovy restaurants and shops here. Peace and quiet and privacy you don't get on the ocean side. We are already booked for Oct 2010!

Show Boat is GREAT

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic and huge. We could have stayed with another family. The proximity to the beach was great, as well as close to other OBX towns with fun things to do: the dunes, Corolla Lighthouse, Aquarium, etc, and being a quiet street with no traffic was a huge benefit.

Private pool with child alarm on the back patio porch was very helpful and the hot tub was great for an evening soak.

If I go back to the OBX, I would absolutely stay at Show Boat again.

Great Vacation - House OK

  • 2 of 5

I want to state that Show Boat is a good house. We are two families that vacation together for the past 5 years and we use VRBO for every house that we have stayed in on our vacations. We are very familiar on what to expect from rental homes. Show Boat had great pictures and great reviews - upon arrival there were things that we noticed right away that need to be addressed. Water Damage around windows that is visible inside the home. Water damage in the 2nd floor on suite bathroom is so bad that it is peeling paint and sheet rock into the shower and a loose railing on the 3rd floor deck. We weren't able to access the crow's nest deck because of repairs that need to be done at some point after the rental season we were told. The other things that are minor is - house cleaning by the management company was very minimal. There was food on furniture, dirt on the floor behind every door, broken toys from previous guest left around the house, cold hot tub, that was fixed later in the week, not sure if it was something that our handy husbands fixed or if it was the pool company, broken skimmer cover that was replaced after our 5 year old stepped on it and broke it and fell into the skimmer hole. I will say that the management company was quick to come and replace the skimmer cover and was willing to come out and do a second cleaning after I called, but I feel for the money that we paid for the house that we shouldn't have to call and request them to come back and clean. This would mean that we would have to rearrange our schedule and make sure that we didn't get settled for them to do their cleaning. Last thing - if you like a very firm mattress than this house is for you. There is not one soft mattress in this house. We went were about to go and buy foam mattresses for the beds to get some cushion. Other than this - the house was great for the amount of people that we had and our kids loved hanging in the pool and playing air hockey.

Owner's Response: Upon reading this review we met with our local property manager who informed us that the outer banks experienced an extreme shortage of cleaning services this year due to an unexpected increase in building and demand. In addition, the carpet cleaner failed to get the request to clean the week before. We urge any guest who is unhappy upon arrival to please call the local property manager immediately. They are just 2 blocks away, and we will work with them to make sure everything is up to snuff! PS. due to back issues we upgraded our mattresses to firmer, thicker ones than the usual rental has. We prefer mattresses that are a little more supportive when we are there.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my familys 1st vacation in 13 yrs. We had a really hard 2 years. My husband and I both lost our mothers and a few other passings as well. We work so hard to just pay the bills, and if losing someone doesn't make you re evaluate i don't know what will!! Show Boat is absolutely amazing. Beautiful, very clean, updated beautifully and very spacious! I can't say enough good things about this home. We had ZERO problems or concerns during our entire stay. Location is perfect, 3 minutes by car to the beach or 10 walking. Such a quiet , serene spot on the golf course. Close to all kinds of restaurants and shopping. Hot tub was perfect (we were in the off season therefore could not use the beautiful pool 😞). But Show Boat made the long drive worth it, brought our family so close and brought us so much peace! It was everything we dreamed of!!!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location and great house for kids. Having an alarm for the pool was a great feature. The kids loved being in the swimming pool. Only downside is you have to watch out for golf balls! The house was well equipped. Our only complaint was the carpets weren't very clean upon arrival but a quick vacuum run fixed that problem.

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

Two families traveled to OBX for a wedding. The house was lovely and well maintained as advertised. Our check in and out process went smoothly. The manager was helpful and responsive with any questions that we had.

Quiet location. Fairly close to beach but very close to golf course.

Great House!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week in September and it was one of the best vacations we've had! The accommodations were excellent and comfortably housed 9 of us! The location is just a couple blocks from the beach (the start of a good jog!) and just a few blocks from public beach access. The house is also within a short drive to several restaurants and a grocery store; very convenient. We highly recommend!
