'When are we going to get there,' is what we heard from the backseat as we headed down the road to OBX about 10 years ago. When these six children finally got there, they discovered the many adventures that OBX offered. And, Pirate's Cove seemed like the perfect place to drop anchor. We want to share our little oasis with the many travelers that choose the Outer Banks. The six kids live in Roanoke, VA with their beautiful moms and fishing crazy fathers. One day we will get there again, ENJOY!
Did I mention the views. The gorgeous sunsets over Manteo, the continuous parade of fishing boats. Two pools, a fitness center, two play areas, tennis courts, a marina, a restaurant and raw bar and that's not even leaving the campus. Great for biking, walking, strolling or generally just hanging out with a Coca-Cola looking over the Roanoke Sound and contemplating life's next adventure. Which could be the Aquarium, the Sand Dunes, the Beach, Kitty Hawk Kites, the Wright Brothers Memorial, a great restaurant, the Tanger Outlets, the Whalebone Tackle Shop, the cute shops in Manteo, etc.
This home is in such a beautiful spot. The decks and sound access are wonderful. The location is perfect for enjoying the Outer Banks. The neighborhood is very cute and good for biking or running. We had no problems accessing the pool as another group did. However, the home is advertised as sleeping 12, which is not in fact true. The number comes from adding in a sleeper sofa that is in an unfinished basement that smells, and my father described the mattress as "rotten." Which means that he spent the week on the couch. The bunk room has four beds, but the top two bunks cannot be used if you want to turn on the ceiling fan. And the fan was much needed in August. Which meant that we had to put one mattress on the floor in between the bunk beds and another in the hallway. If it weren't for the fact that one person slept in the hall and another on the living room couch, I would have given the house five stars. But those sleeping arrangements warrant a pretty severe downgrade. If you have a group of eight or less, you will be perfectly happy. If you have more than ten, you should look for another home.
I loved the house, it was just as advertised! The rooms were neat and jammed packed with everything you need, even games! Loved the free wi-fi and hot tub!!!!! All of my friends felt at home and there was enough room for everyone to relax.
Only gave it a 4/5 because of a few preventable hick ups (i.e. no pool excess as advertised and minor power issues), that should have been checked up on before we checked in. Also watch out for the back door locks they are beyond hard to lock, I'd advise to only use the one door that leads out to the hot tub. Also wash the dishes before use.
We literally JUST Left this beautiful home... And we are soooo sad! 3 girls just home from college and me (mom!) wanted to spend a few days hibernating and reconnecting. We hit on the PERFECT soft landing! This home is gorgeous! SUPER GREAT SAFE location!!! 4 large bedrooms (super comfy beds!), clean, super bright with incredible endless water views! We walked all over pirates cove on the walkways that go on for miles with incredible views! Starry nights were so fun with the super large CLEAN hot tub- again with water views just feet from you! Numerous beaches just minutes away - grocery and TONS of restaurants and shopping! We LOVED everything in this beautiful, comfortable home! We will DEFINITELY BE BACK! Checking dates now!!! Thanks!!!!! ?????
We recently stayed at here and were extremely please. The house was wonderful and the community was perfect for the family with the community pool and kids activities at the community center. The kids enjoyed fishing and crabbing in the sound as well. Have never stayed sound side before but will be back here next summer! Could not have asked for a better vacation home!
We stayed and enjoyed Thanksgiving in OBX! Great house and community! We'll be back for sure.
Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven with all of us.
My wife and I are thrilled with our decision to stay in this wonderful Outer Banks home. If you choose to do the same you will not be disappointed. This being our first trip to the Outer Banks we were not sure where to stay. If you have been surfing VRBO you know the choices in this area are immense. We almost went south to Hatteras, we almost went north to Duck. After being here and visiting those areas we can say thank goodness we stayed in Pirate's Cove on Roanoke island. If you choose this home you will find QCV. Quality, Convenience and Value!
Quality? The open areas and furnishings of this high end home make it a pleasure to stay in. The photographs don't do the home justice, especially the top floor which has the main living area and one of the two Master bedrooms. The special thing about the top floor is the entire back wall of the house, which looks over the boardwalk, canal, and across the salt grass marsh to the sound, is literally glass. What beautiful water vista's. The development is re-pleat with many many amenities and lovely homes however, one thing we are most amazed with is in the middle of everything offered this home is quiet, relaxed and removed from all sense of hustle and bustle.
On the issue of convenience what a wonderful location. This home is CENTRALLY LOCATED to all the OBX has to offer. The beach is just across the bridge with ample public access, Roanoke island itself offers much to do. Easy day trips can be made all the way north to Corolla and South all the way to the southern end of Cape Hatteras. Going south it is even within the scope of a day trip to take the 40 minute ferry ride from Hatteras further south over to Ocracoke island. There you can Explore the former home of Blackbeard and see the oldest lighthouse standing in America. If one were staying north in Duck or South in Hatteras it would be hard to travel to and from the "other ends" of the OBX in a day. Nags Head is immediate to this home and filled with shopping which pleased my wife greatly. Going to Kitty Hawk is no more than a typical drive to town.
As it pertains to value I'll say my wife and I usually vacation in October and we always stay in vacation homes. Who can be comfortable in a little matchbox hotel room for a week? Simply stated this home gave us as much or more "bang for our buck" as we have ever had.
We have really enjoyed our first trip to the OBX and this home is a large part of the reason why. We don't want to leave!
