About The Owner

My wife and I first visited this area of the OBX about 15 years ago and absolutely loved it. We decided to bring our family back in the summer of 2016 and vacation. While we were on vacation we began to entertain the idea of looking for a place we could own. After looking at some houses and enjoying our vacation we had to leave but the idea of finding our own place stuck with us.

We returned to look at several house in Oct and fell in love with Oceans End.

We close in Dec of 2016 and spent Christmas in the house as a family. Although not ideal for swimming we enjoyed the wide open beaches, horses and time together as a family.

We currently live in Pennsylvania but hope to spend winter months on the Outer Banks once we retire.

We have already started filling this house with wonderful family memories and if you decide to vacation at Oceans End we will do everything we can to make sure your wonderful memories become a part of Oceans End as well.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Outer Banks

We love the natural look. No paved roads. Very secluded and quiet. We love the fact that we are living in an area that protects the wild horses. it is great to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Nags Head area and be somewhere out of the way.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the privacy of our pool and hot tub. We love to wake up in the morning and go out on the deck and see the ocean on one side and the sound on the other. There are always wild horses in our yard to greet us. They are very calm, fun to watch, and are used to people being around. We also love the closeness to the ocean front and enjoy long quiet walks on miles of beach front where very few people come. It's wonderful!

Great home, needs minor adjustments

  • 3 of 5

The home is beautiful and privately located. It fit our needs and our family. I just have some suggestions:

1. Clean out cabinets and closets. There is trash and broken items.

2. Replace mattresses and comforters. The mattresses are so overused that they all sink in and gave our family back problems.

3. Remove or replace broken furniture. The patio table top stones were broken which made it unable to use. Some chairs were broken and almost cause injury to my family.

4. Gaming console games and movies are all scratched. Please remove or replace. If i would have known that, i would have brought my own.

5. Grill had empty gas tanks although we were told there would be some provided.

Other than that, we had a great time. Very close to the beach. About 15 min drive on the beach to get to the house which requires AWD vehicle and can get unsafe at times. House is 30 mins from stores and activities. Wild horses are beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestions/response. We will look into the items you have mentioned. We are in the process of looking for tiles for the outside table top. It does need to be fixed but is not unusable. If you can be more specific about which other furniture outside was broken we will have it fixed or removed. There is a note in the welcome book and also a note on the refrigerator that if you have any problems to please let the house manager know. They are just a couple minutes away and will bring a new cylinder of gas for the grill over whenever needed. Mattress firmness is a matter of preference, of course. You are the first to mention anything about them. Our family has slept on several of the beds and had no issues. We will take another look and keep an eye on them. Again if there were specific beds you had issues with we would love to know so we can check them out and replace if needed. They are not that old nor are they broken down. We are sorry they were not comfortable for you and your family. The beach driving is a part of the expierence and a new expierence for many of our guests. It is also one of the things that most of our guests love. Where else in America do you get to drive down the beach and see wild horses? It is not dangerous if you follow the directions and law. Although I am sure it is not for everyone, most people who choose to vacation in the 4x4 area love the drive up the beach. We do not want anyone putting themselves in a situation that would make them feel unsafe. We are sorry you did not have a 5 star experience and would have loved to have heard from you during your stay to try to resolve these issues. Mark & Carol

We stayed the first week in May and absolutely loved this house! We will definitely be renting from Mark and his wife again! Our family and friends loved the house also! The house has EVERYTHING you could possibly need! When it says that you need a 4x4...that is very true. You have to drive 8.5 miles down the beach but honestly that is part of the beauty of staying at this house! We had a Ford Escape 4x4 and it did awesome in the sand. It does need to be a SUV because the sand is deep in some spots and we saw many sedan AWD vehicles that got stuck.

On our stay we got to see a baby seal, that had beached itself to take a nap in the sun, and were able to get up close to it. We also saw some sting rays that had washed up on the beach and there are a lot of crabs. Our kids loved being able to see the wild life including horses and deer! I would definitely recommend this house for anyone that is looking to have a memorable vacation! The house and the price are better than any other that I found and it lives up to all expectations and exceeds most!

Owner's Response: Thank you Danisha for such a positive review. One of the great things about sharing Ocean's End with others is hearing that they had such a great time. It is a special place to us and we love sharing it with others who appreciate it the way we do. Mark & Carol

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a great experience at Ocean's End. We've been staying there several years now and its the place to be for easy beach access and viewing the horses. All house amenities were as described and there were no issues of any kind.

This is the place to rent for your OBX experience.

Dream Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 13 drove all the way from New Hampshire to stay at Ocean's End last week. The drive across the 4x4 beach was bumpy (you definitely need 4-wheel drive), but it was so worth it! This house is absolutely beautiful and the views from its many decks are stunning! The house is also huge--plenty of room for all 13 of us. We made the 5-minute walk to the beach almost every day to enjoy NC's soft sand and warm water (compared to the Northeast, anyways). Just in case you're not up for the quick walk, there's also a swimming pool and hot tub for some at-home fun. We played our volleyball games on the beach, but the volleyball net in the backyard is a great option for family fun too. The wild horses are such an incredible thing to witness--and they were all over the place all week! On one day, there was a congregation of 10 or so of them under the house's carport! Kitty Hawk and the Wright brothers memorial is about an hour and a half from the house--we would definitely recommend experiencing that piece of history. Sometime during your stay you also have to go to Jockeys Ridge to see the sunset over the dunes--breathtaking! My husband and I took a drive to three of NC's lighthouses and we climbed Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, which offered some amazing views of the coast.

As for practicality, the kitchen is beautiful and very functional. It was pretty well stocked, although there were some minor things we missed while cooking, like extra frying pans since there are so many of us. Having the water bubbler was also great because we were able to use fewer plastic water bottles. The only drawback to being so isolated is that there's about an hour drive into town for groceries/supplies, so if you realize last minute that you're missing something, it's a pain. However, if you stock up with food and supplies at the beginning of your trip, that won't be a problem. And trust me, this house is worth the trouble of planning ahead!

Tim and Linda were great--they gave us detailed instructions ahead of time for checking in and left a nice little gift bag with wine, toilet paper, and some other necessities for us. We didn't have to contact them, although they left us phone numbers in case we needed to. The house is also right next to the fire department and a small store--the people there are very friendly and helpful.

Overall, this vacation was wonderful and unforgettable. Stay at Ocean's End--you won't regret it!

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Ocean's End, and we definitely plan on returning. We are a large group (15 people), yet this house provided plenty of space for all of us to relax. The A/C works excellent, the bathrooms were spotless, the beds were comfortable and clean, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook large family dinners every night. We love the pool and the hot tub. The wild horses walk right into the yard to graze, and False Cape State Park is an easy three mile hike from the house.

Really enjoyed the stay. Awesome house.

  • 5 of 5

Lots of room in the house, clean and well kept. No issues but we called the house manager with a question, received a prompt response. Only improvement I could suggest, the master bedroom on the main level should have a TV.
