Super Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we could have asked for. Plenty of space, comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen, pool/ping pong table, kayaks, excellent TV options, very good internet. It has great proximity to beach, the sound, dining, shopping and golf/tennis. Everything was clean and in good working order when we arrived. Instructions and info were very clear. Dennis was great to work with. If we vacation on the Outer Banks again this will be at the top of our list.

Amazing house and great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay. Our trip was right after a hurricane came through, and Dennis was wonderful during any/all communication. The directions and checklist that were provided contained all of the info needed for us to find things and get checked in. We had a great time using the kayaks, going to the beach, using the telescope and just hanging out on the awesome porch. Having our furbabies was an added bonus. We will be making reservations for this upcoming year as well. I honestly cannot think of enough good things to say about the place. The only mishap was that we lost one of our parking passes down our dashboard (so be careful where you put it), however the homeowners association replaced it for us. Great community, lots of privacy. Great location for beach and sound activities. We love this place!

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.
