Karen & I purchased this condominium for our retirement. We grew up in Wisconsin, married and attended university there. We owned an oceanfront motel in Kill Devil Hills for 45 years and still live on a portion of that property. We have two children and have 6 grandchildren living on the Outer Banks and another child and four more grandchildren on Chapel Hill, NC.
Our son Christopher is the director of the Dare County Arts Council half a block away from this rental.
Karen or Steve Sawin purchased this condo in 2004
This is a jewel of a little town. Hugged by water and touched by limitless sky, Manteo feels as open as what surrounds it. Locals say hello and smile a welcome to visitors. The town’s kids can be watched joyously jumping off the bridge that leads to Festival Park in the summer heat. And every direction you look, there’s an interesting shop, beckoning restaurant, creative art gallery, fun attraction … and such beautiful scenery. From one spot on the boardwalk that surrounds the waterfront town, you can see Roanoke Island Marshes Lighthouse, Elizabeth II, flags fluttering, sails catching breezes and vessels docked alongside each other, a playground with prancing kids, a gazebo perched over the water, attractive bed and breakfasts and inns and people happily taking in all the pleasure this town offers.
A spectacular view of the harbor and the Albemarle Sound all the way to the Nags Head beaches and the ocean can be seen from your front porch. A waterfront walk-way runs from nearby grocery stores and shops past your apartment on to the Festival Park with live amphitheater, museum and historic boat replica. Deep sea fishing charter inlets beckon from two nearby locations and miles and miles of canals to be explore by kayak start a few miles away.
I rented the condo for my granddaughter and her family for the Christmas holiday. The view was beautiful, the condo was well appointed and Steve, the owner, was super friendly and helpful. They really enjoyed the convenient location and playground for the kids. Great experience!
Hello, thank you for sharing your vacation rental with me and my family. We enjoyed the place. The view was amazing and the location is perfect. The only suggestion we would make would be to invest in some better pillows. Thank you again for opening your home to us and providing us with wonderful memories.
What a wonderful location & place to stay in while visiting the Outer Banks. Much less crowded to stay in Manteo than other Outer Banks locations. Stayed 8 days during last week of July 2016. Condo is on the waterfront and you can enjoy walking on the boardwalk, launching kayaks, etc. right there, and taking other excursions right outside your door. Steve, the owner, was very helpful and even met us and helped us move our belongings into the condo. Condo faces the harbor and is across from Roanoke Island Festival Park with Elizabeth II visible from our balcony. This unit is very spacious, which suited our party of 6. Everything was clean, washer/dryer was a lifesaver, air conditioning worked well in our 96 degree weather, and kitchen was stocked well with all kinds of dishes and appliances. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else if we return to the Outer Banks area.
We stayed the week of July 4th at this beautiful condo. Steve met us and helped get our things to the 3rd floor and showed us around the condo. He was very helpful and extremely nice. Anything we needed he was just a phone call away. I can't say enough good things about our week there. The view is exceptional and the people were so friendly. I never want to stay any other place than this.
Steve was delightful and was there to help us get our luggage upstairs. What a wonderful open concept with lots of space. The balcony on the waterfront was delightful and we spent lots of time out there. WiFi was not provided, but every now and then you could log on to an unsecured Manteo site. The only improvement that would be suggested would be to invest in better towels and bed linens. They were very worn. Overall a great time in a lovely location!
Our stay at this condo was great. Steve was so easy to deal with and actually met us at the parking garage and took the time to show us around the condo. We have been coming to the Outer Banks for several years and this is the best place we have stayed. Can't wait to book our week in 2017.
