About Mike Polisky

Not your typical rental, more like home

Mike Polisky purchased this house in 1999

Why Mike Polisky chose Outer Banks

We purchased in 1999 so we could always have a place to call home. We have been improving the Ranch for 18 years now, and it has come a long way to be as comfortable as it is.

What makes this house unique

Quiet residential neighborhood, with short walk to beach, restaurants and shopping.

Me, my husband three of my best yoga buddies and 3 dogs all had a great time at Ranch Relaxo!

WE sat on the screened in back porch a bunch this year. (this is our second year at Rancho Relaxo.) WE cooked in most every night. The house is equipped for lots of cooking.

WE relaxed!!!

Rancho Relaxo Rules!

  • 5 of 5

Rancho Relaxo is a perfect beach house. From the screened in porch, to the outdoor shower (which is pure heaven in the spring, summer and even fall!) and everything in between. Flat screens in every bedroom, an excellent refrigerator/excellent kitchen and the beds are comfy! The WIFi is AMAZING. Its probably the best on the island. (no kidding!) The owner has a nice video game system that taps into all system platforms with hundreds of video games. Its AMAZING and great to keep kiddos ocupado!

The house is across from one of the greatest local spots in KDH - Mama Kwan's and a short walk to the beach and other shops. There is alot of great public access along beach road with free parking spots.

The owner's neighbor's are very welcoming and super friendly.

We're always so pumped getting to Rancho Relaxo and of course, melancholy when leaving, but who isnt when they've just spent a week staying in a beach house that is welcoming, warm and fun!

Multi-generational family getaway at the OBX!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rancho Relaxo for a lovely early September weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday and to get the extended family together for some beach fun. The house was immaculately clean, well provisioned and comfortably slept 5 adults and two kids in the upper house (there is a self-contained bunk room downstairs where the washer and dryer are that would have accommodated extra). We loved the screened porch and hammock, the comfy large sofas, the proximity to the whole stretch and made excellent use of the grill and deck chairs to have BBQ ribs on arrival. The house is just across the main road to multiple public beach access points to Kill Devil Hills beaches and a short drive to Jockey's Ridge State Park and the Wright Brothers memorial. We are adventurous, so we went up to Duck (for lunch and water views) and Corolla (for the Currituck lighthouse and a wider stretch of beach) and down to the Cape Hatteras National Sea Shore to see the Bodie lighthouse (awesome!) and enjoy the windswept beach along that shore. All within easy reach. Had a great sea food lunch overlooking the intra-coastal at Millers Waterfront too. Definitely an awesome pad from which to launch a perfect stay in the Outerbanks.

A great week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 people and 2 dogs had a great week at Rancho Relaxo. The house is tucked just far enough behind the bypass to be quiet, and yet close enough to be able to walk up to the beach or the beach road. For beach trips with more stuff, it is a very short drive and we found plenty of parking at public beach access points a few blocks south of the house (If you drive straight to the beach, there are 2 hotels, and the beach is more crowded). The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, and we found the grill to be suitable for grilling some steaks and corn one night. The beds were comfortable, and the ceiling fans in each bedroom felt great on skin that maybe got a bit too much sun... The beach chairs and umbrella had some wear on them, but that is to be expected of equipment that is used continually, I think. We rode the bikes to dinner one evening, and other than needing some air in the tires, that was fun and the bikes were suitable. Overall, we had a great week and our biggest problem was that it went by too fast.

Very clean and comfortable house. Mike (the owner) was super cool and accessible through the entire process. Neighborhood is quiet and ideal for walks/runs and bike rides.

There are lots of great places to eat that are within walking distance. We enjoyed Pigman's barbecue and The Flying Fish particularly.

There is a great shaded dirt road near the ecological preserve that is great for walking dogs on hot days.

Would definitely return as we had a great and very peaceful time.

Excellent Family and Pet Friendly Place To Stay in the OBX

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rancho Relaxo and had an amazing time. The Ranch is extremely comfortable and has everything you could ever need. We brought our family dog and the Ranch was perfect for her as well. We have teenagers and the Ranch was close enough to walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants. This was excellent because it allowed for us to have a great family vacation but also allowed the teenagers to go off on their own when needed. The dog and I spent a lot of time on the screened in porch reading or doing cross word puzzles. I would recommend the Ranch to anyone. Great place to stay and Mike is excellent to work with!
