Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Eileen, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. The pictures doesn't do any justice to the actual look of the house. We had a fabulous time enjoying the pool and the short walk to the beach was the icing on the cake. Also, thank you for being so accommodating and assisting us throughout the process and during our stay. We had a memoral and joyful vacation. Without a doubt I would recommend your home to family and friends. Marta and Charles Lang.

Great Family House

  • 4 of 5

The Sandbox was a great place to stay for our family. It was spacious enough for the kids to run around and it had a great floor plan! Eileen was wonderful and offered some great tips as well as check in with us to see if we needed anything. The beach was close enough for my two year old to walk to. I would definately stay again next year!

Loved the Sandbox!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! Very clean, very short walk to beach. Was definitely more than enough room for 3 of us. This was our first visit to Outer Banks - the house is not located in a hustle and bustle area. Nice, clean, quiet community. The owners are great to work with. Would highly recommend this house and we do plan on coming again. No complaints! Thank you, Eileen!

Where Memories Are Created

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year staying at the Sandbox. As before the house was very clean and well maintained. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms makes this home very comfortable, not to mention the free Wi-Fi. We would recommend the Sandbox to any family looking to rent a vacation home, that is close to the shops, restaurants, and beach. The owners, what can I say but very accomodating, attentive, and easy to work with!

Owner's Response: Thank you, for the wonderful review. We are so glad that your family enjoyed staying at the sandbox for the past few years. If we can help you again in the future with The Sandbox or our larger home Pelican Rest, please let us know. Enjoy the upcoming holidays. Eileen & Bob

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the OBX and we were NOT disappointed. Going to a vacation spot without knowing the area is scary. But this house made all the difference! The location was perfect. Not in the mix and all the houses and crowds. It was so clean felt like home. Very comfortable. Loved having the private pool. Eileen was wonderful to work with. We loved the OBX and all its natural beauty. Thanks for sharing your home!!
