About Angela Smith

My husband and I have always loved the natural beauty of the Outer Banks. A recent trip to Venice and the Amalfi Coast of Italy inspired the decor of the interior of this house. Sometimes while staying at the house, I will be inside for a whole morning or afternoon. But, I still feel like I am on vacation because the interior is beautiful and I enjoy the wild beauty of the beach views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. The pictures do nice job of conveying the general feel of the place, but it is really beautiful inside and a lot of attention to detail has been paid. I also love the media room and enjoy a recent movie every time I go down. The pool and hot tub are also outstanding. And, the stargazing cannot be beat no matter when you go down.

Angela Smith purchased this house in 2006

Why Angela Smith chose Outer Banks

This is probably the best location in the Outer Banks. As we stated in the description, the house abuts undeveloped beach front land. The main benefit of that is the beach itself is not as crowded as other sections of Ocean Sands. Also, there are no condos or town homes in Section H of Ocean Sands, and that means that the beach is not crowded.

We feel that Ocean Sands has the best beach in the Outer Banks. The sand is finer than anywhere in the obx. And, you do not have the 4 x 4 trucks on the beach like in other areas up north.

The house location could not be beat. It is a semi-oceanfront, but don't let that title fool you. I have been in my neighbor's oceanfront houses, and I can honestly say that the view from our house is the same. You will see pelicans and seagulls fly over the water from the kitchen, dining room and living room.

What makes this house unique

When I arrive, I relax. Everything is in the house for me to enjoy a nice vacation. I love the media room and pool table. The sound in the media room is amazing. I have been in movie theatres with less ideal sound. My husband becomes a kid again when he plays the pac-man/galaga machine. The kitchen is my ideal dream kitchen and I love cooking there. It is a well-supplied kitchen. I love the hot tub any time of year. I just love this place, I know that you will, too.

HGTV would love this house!

  • 2 of 5

This house has so much potential as a renovation! It could be awesome, however, what we found was a tired, shabby house past its prime. As we opened the door, we were met with absolutely filthy carpeting and flies galore in the kitchen area. Appliances were on their last gasp. The view from the kitchen would have been lovely, but for the film on the outside of the windows, it was difficult to see. There were several decks, that unfortunately could only accommodate 4 chairs, but only IF there had been chairs...maybe one or two per deck were there, in worn condition! The living room, eating area, and kitchen were a good size for our group of 12 adults and good mattresses on the beds were much appreciated. The home theater was comfortable and

had a quite large selection of movies. Beach access was close and convenient. Yes, there were positives, but this house really needs HGTV Beach Reno!!

Owner's Response: It is a great exaggeration to call this house an HGTV makeover show. There are some things that need to be repaired or replaced, but seriously this not an HGTV makeover show. 1. We are replacing the carpets for 2016. The carpets that were there were cleaned last spring. But, the cleaners over-soaked the carpeting which caused bunching of the support layer and flattening of the carpet fibers. So, now we are getting new carpets for 2016. 2. The existing tile will be deep cleaned by the people who installed the tile flooring. For some reason, Seaside Vacations never called them to address the tile flooring. Well, we did, and that issue will be addressed. 3. The wifi speed that I purchased with Charter communications is the fastest wifi available in the Outer Banks. We add routers to each floor to improve the wifi. 4. We checked the furniture and the bedroom furniture is fine. The mattress we slept on was comfortable. We are replacing the dining room chairs and barstools. We are looking for quality Amish made chairs and barstools. 5. There is grass around the pool because of building restrictions. Our choices were grass or stones. We thought that grass is a little more comfortable than stones. 6. There were plenty of baking pans, cookie sheets, pots and pan. We ordered drinking and wine glasses. That would have been done if the renter had asked. 7. When we visited this October, the windows did have a thick film of sand on them. They are usually cleaned in late spring. But last September, there had been a hurricane followed by a nor'easter, and a lot of sand got kicked up. The sand piled up on 5-6 stairs leading down to the beach. So, we ordered that the windows get another cleaning. 8. There seemed to be not enough outdoor chairs and end tables on the decks. Again, there was a storm and they were put in storage, and apparently not put out again. There are chairs and tables on the decks now. 9. We used the appliances last October. Both of the Viking double ovens, dishwasher, microwave worked well. The icemaker is getting fixed. 10. We used the coffeemaker and the toaster and they worked. Management is going to test every small electric this spring. 11. We are installing an XBox One. We will resolve the streaming issues for Netflix in the living room and media room. We have addressed the maintenance issues. We have never said no to repairs or upgrading. We have had many happy renters, and hopefully will have many more.

Never again....

  • 2 of 5

We rented this house through Seaside Vacations - we always go through Twiddy and will return to them. This house has a fantastic location and amazing views - which made up for the numerous faults....this home is in serious need of extensive repairs/updating...there was not one room that didn't have something not working. Our biggest complaint was the disgusting red, old, dirty carpet through all the bedrooms and halls. It's just gross! Also - the pool and the outside of the house need major sprucing up - the furniture was falling apart, there is grass all around the pool which gets in the pool making it dirty and also in the house. There was trash all over the right side of the house (beer cans, cigarettes, etc.) The wifi in this house was terrible - everyone was kicked off all the time - we had to call to have it re-set. The refrigerator was broke all week and we had to have a pan of water in front of it for the leak. We did call and the repair man told us it was our fault for putting our items from the cooler in it??? Anyway, we were too annoyed to call back - someone else can deal with it! The dishwashers seem to be coming loose from the cabinets - they felt as if they were coming out of the cabinets - there were no baking sheets, cake pans, a set of measuring cups...etc...everything was very mis-matched...we hardly had any regular cups to drink out of, but an entire kitchen cabinet full of margarita and martini glasses??? was not cleaned well when we got there - spider webs all over and our room had toenails beside the bed when we got there!!! The toilets in several bedrooms didn't flush properly - the furniture in many of the bedrooms was ENTIRELY oversized - to the point that you couldn't even move or open drawers...the beds were so hard - several of us had bad backs and hips from sleeping on them.The dvd player didn't work in our bedroom - there were no instructions on how to use the tv's or the media room (which was nice, but didn't have any movies from the past 10 years or for kids)...the lighting was terrible in many of the rooms - I had to use the half bath to put on makeup because the lighting was so dark in bathroom. The sliding door to ships watch barely opened. Although we knew going into this home that it was going to be quirky, it was a bit too much for us - a naked woman hanging over the elevator???? Not very kid appropriate..we were not the only ones to feel this way - the guest book is embarrassing for owers!!

Very Elegant

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice place to spend your Outer Banks vacation. The decor has a very Italian theme, with lots of interesting decorations. The theater room is fantastic for movie fans. It really seems like being in a small movie house. The close proximity to the beach is a great plus as well. All in all, a very nice place. I hope to get back to it again.

Great Getaway During March Madness

  • 5 of 5

We got some friends together to enjoy March Madness. The place is great. There are terrific views from the house and you are merely seconds away from the beach. It was fun to watch the games on the giant screen. The beds were super-comfy and Seaside was very helpful with all of our questions. We cannot wait to book it again for a summer week.

A Most Enjoyable Stay in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and is in an excellent location. We were at the beach access within seconds. The pool and hot tub were great. We had lots of fun in the rec room and media room. We enjoyed waking up to the terrific ocean views from the kitchen and the outdoor decks.

The house is professionally managed by Seaside Vacations, which is next to the Harris Teeter Supermarket.

Go Karts and Movie Theatres are nearby.

Must dos-1.)historic town of Corolla with Currituck Lighthouse and Whalehead Club

and, 2.) wild Mustang horses in 4x4 country. Both very short drives.

There is a Great Aquarium and the Elizabethan Gardens in historic Manteo. Christmas Shop in Manteo. Wright Brothers Flight Memorial in Kill Devil Hills. Lost Colony in Roanoke. Gorgeous Elizabethan theatre on the water to tour where the play Lost Colony shows in Summer.

Fantastic golf at Currituck Club.
