Great home with all you need!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home in a beautiful location. We have never stayed on this end. We always stay in Hatteras. We were so pleasantly surprised at how much more we loved this area. It is close to everything. We drove to Corolla beach 3 days in a row because of how close and how much we loved it. We also used our beach passes to go down the road. It was awesome that we had life jackets, chairs and boogie boards here that we could use. We loved the overlook on the top of the house. The pool is comforting when you have a small child because it doesn't get any deeper than 4 feet at any point. Our kid loved it. We also enjoyed kayaking. The scenery was amazing and it was so serene. Loved this house. Owner is so nice and even worked with us to make something happen that we weren't sure could. A+ guys. Love it. Will be back.

Relaxing vacation full of nature

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing family vacation! The house was perfect for us, so much to do right on the property like kayak, play pool,and cook big family dinners. The only negative thing is the bugs are really bad every were in Duck, the house , Boardwalk , and beach! Bring bug spray. Even with the bugs being bad we would still come back.

Great Family house

  • 4 of 5

The house set up was perfect for our family vacation. We loved the pool and game room. The observation deck was amazing at night with all the stars. The house was a short drive into Duck and close to a lot of other attractions. We had a great stay.

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house at Outer Banks, comfortable, close to beach, nice pool, the observation above is something see, all the beautiful stars. We would definitely want to stay here again next year. The kitchen was stocked all utensils and dinnerware. We loved all decking around house. The art in house was really neat! I especially liked Sally sells seashells above staircase. We even got a new coffee table during our stay. A+ Rating, Thank you!!!!
