About Gene and Jeanine

We wanted a home on the water to some day retire to and had visited the outer banks several times. We love the fact that there is plenty to do with friendly people in the area. Manteo is a charming Victorian fishing village that was the first colony in the US. There are lovely views each morning and evening and we are only 1.5 miles to the ocean. Our condo is our little bit of heaven and very relaxing. We hope you enjoy it.

Gene and Jeanine purchased this condo in 2010

The Outer Banks is a friendly, care free location with lots of things to do.

What makes this condo unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such. Beautiful condo ! Great views , clean and resteraunt on property was great . Cleaning lady Donna was so helpful and offered to assist in anything we needed . I did not feel removing garbage or emptying dishwasher was excessive and laundry did not have to be placed back on beds -not sure if other guest did not read contract and welcome letter . In addition housekeeper offered to assist . We would leave our own home tidy so did not feel this was excessive at all . Gene and Jeanine were great to work with too -we will be back !

Great condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. What a dream to own a condo like that and in such an incredible location. Manteo is super nice and Nags Head Beach is a 5 minute drive. Sitting out on the front deck every night and looking at that view would never get old. How convenient to have Stripers Restaurant practically right outside your door. I could eat their fish tacos every day. It was hard to leave there I definitely could have stayed a few more weeks.

Fantastic vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We planned a long weekend in Manteo and had not stayed in that area before. This condo was absolutely perfect! The pictures are exactly as the condo appears. It was exceptionally clean and well appointed. Lots of rooms, large covered decks with seating, fantastic water views. The small marina setting is beautiful. It was close and convenient to restaurants and entertainment in Manteo and less than 10 min drive to Nags Head. My family Loved the entire experience. The owners are great to work with and very accommodating. They have made their condo feel like home. We truly enjoyed the stay and will plan to stay here again.

Fantastic & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, we arrived in a tropical storm, so my family and I had to shift our mindset from a beach and swimming trip to doing other things inside and out. Because the condo is so beautiful, we had a great time redirecting our time in the OBX. We did many things and loved em all!! We'd definitely go back! We loved staying at Jeanine & Gene's lovely home.

A lovely place to relax

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condominium in a lovely location. My husband and I stayed here for five days with our daughter and her family. Given the square footage quoted in the specifications we were amazed at how spacious the unit appears. There are great porches with comfortable furniture to sit and look at the water and boats. The kitchen has a great amount of cabinet and counter spaces as well as nice appliances.

The unit was nicely furnished. The beds are very comfortable. There was a generous supply of linens. And it was immaculately clean.

The location is right on the Roanoke Sound. From the porches you can see downtown Manteo and Nags Head. There is an excellent restaurant, Stripers, located at the end of the street. It has delicious food and one of the best views on The Outer Banks. The ocean is a five minute car ride.Downtown Manteo is charming.

Jeanine was very easy to work with. Everything we needed was done just as we needed it to be done.

We have stayed at several VRBO locations and are looking forward to returning to this one.

Quiet haven

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay. Home was charming, clean and spacious. Perfect for our family of five. Owners were very helpful with the rental process. We met many neighbors - all permanent residents and all very friendly. Location is great - away from the hubub but close enough to everything. I did remove a star because VRBO charged my card for the whole trip at once rather than in half up front, half a month before as we were supposed to be. Extra "credit card" fees were also charged and taken from our deposit, again not the owners but VRBO. I would recommend this rental, but just be prepared for the charges.
