I moved to the Outer Banks about 15 years ago from Australia. I came here in search of solitude, a peaceful life and a great place to kayak. I love living here and consider this to be my "home". Currently, I sell advertising for local publications and am starting a new, "green" business.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 1995
The main reason I purchased my home in the Outer Banks was for the beautiful wildlife and the endless kayaking. From alligators to bears and wolves, we've got it all!
Some of the things I enjoy most about my home are its privacy, the views and the quiet, friendly neighborhood.
This was the first time visiting with Ron and Marilyn. I can say without a doubt that we will back for years to come! Ron was so welcoming to our two dachshunds. They loved his large backyard and we loved that it was fenced in and very secure. We were also big fans of the safe, secure, and quiet neighborhood that we were in.
Ron greeted us upon arrival and gave us the tour of the grounds and showed us where everything was. After we began to unpack we opened the fridge and there was two chilled wine glasses and a bottle of wine waiting for us. (The wine was delicious by the way). We had everything we needed for a perfect week. Our wonderful host even supplied garbage bags, dish soap, and even laundry detergent! It was also a relief to know that we didn't have to pack linens. We have already made arrangements to come back twice next year. We just can't wait.
Also, please take Ron's advice on restaurants. He knows what he is talking about.
This was our first time staying at Ron's place. We were able to bring all 3 of our miniature dachshunds. They had a blast in his fenced in yard. The location is perfect and very comfortable, bigger than we thought. Ron was very helpful and understanding with our dogs. Had a great time and enjoyed some of Ron's recommendations of places to try. I enjoyed sitting in his back yard and reading, so peaceful. We will definitely be back, hopefully weather will be a little warmer though. Ron is very easy to work with and supplies you with all the basics, even towels and linens.
This was our second time at Secluded Sanctuary Near the Sea and we had a WONDERFUL time......again !!! We couldn't ask for anything more. To have the entire bottom floor of this house for the price is, by far, the best deal on the OBX. Ron's place is PERFECT for me, my wife, our son, and Jimmy (Chocolate Lab). Ron is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and we consider him a friend. He really goes out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. We will continue to stay at Secluded Sanctuary Near the Sea whenever possible.
Just arrived back home in PA.... Already severely missing Ron's extra special vacation home in the OBX. We stayed there for the week and really felt at home and relaxed.
The home has almost everything you'll need to have a splendid vacation- Just bring some beach towels, a beach umbrella, boogie board, a cooler for drinks and a light lunch and some sun tan lotion.
The kitchen is nicely appointed if you would like to cook in. There is a Food Lion Super Market nearby along with a WalMart. The (double) bed is comfortable with linens provided by Ron. Cable TV (with mucho channels) Samsung LED TV and WiFi are provided. A washer and dryer too is there. The apartment is spacious and nicely appointed.
Ron had a nice bottle of chilled Australian White Wine in the fridge for us too. Nice touch! Too, he was always available for any questions you might have, or recommendations for beaches, shopping, directions, restaurants, etc.
Our little Havanese Lulu came with us and loved Ron's fenced-in back yard. She was comfortable, safe and secure. (Ron loved Lulu BTW).
Since we are on a tight budget, we ate out just a couple times at Slice Pizza which was VERY VERY GOOD and at Five Guys Burgers (both about 10 minutes away).
The weather was beautiful and the surf temperature was around 80 for the entire week. Couldn't ask for a more relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Would love to return next year if circumstances permit.
Our thanks to you Ron and making our vacation stress less and memorable!!!
Bob, Karen and Lulu
I spent a wonderful week at Ron's lovely casa beginning on Labor Day weekend 2014. The apartment is larger than it looks in the pictures and is charmingly decorated. The week was part holiday and part writing retreat for me and the large private backyard was a perfect location for the latter purpose. It was also purr-fect for my two older cats that I brought with me and who spent every moment they could lounging on the patio.
Ron met me on arrival and provided lots of helpful information about the area (it was my first trip to the Outer Banks) as well as a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge to welcome me to the beach. :) Even though he lives upstairs, you would never know he's there unless you need him for something.
The location is great: close to shopping, dining, the Wright Brothers Memorial, and just a 3-minute drive to the Kitty Hawk beach (with plenty of free parking available). Tip: Head about 20 minutes south to Coquina beach, my favorite of all the ones I visited during my stay.
I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the OBX!
P.S. I tried to submit this review right after my trip and VRBO wouldn't accept it. Not sure what the problem was but wanted to get it in as people are now booking for the 2015 season.
I realize that this may not work for everyone but in the grand scheme of vacation rentals, I was able to make this reservation practically at the last minute and Ron made it work. We visited the Outer Banks regularly with my mother and my memories are wonderful and warm. I wanted to return but I was afraid to do so at the same time. I need not have worried. My daughter and I spent an amazing week in Ron's apartment. He is a gracious host. If you want information and recommendations he is very helpful but if you wish to stay to yourself, he respects that as well. The apartment is indeed spacious and equipped with almost anything you will need to be clean and comfortable. You can come and go as you wish. Lighting is good for later in the evening. The beach is across the single major highway, sometimes an adventure! but a relatively short drive will deliver you to much quieter surroundings if you should desire. Of course shopping of all varieties is only minutes away. The property is a bit of an oasis maintained, I'm sure, by a lot of hard work and water. We made another week of wonderful memories. Thank you very much Ron for your hospitality.
