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 2 -3 miles to the ocean. Our condo is our little bit of heaven and very relaxing. We hope you enjoy it. Gene

Guestbook comments from the owner

I came to the OBX with a friend for a 4 day getaway. We just wanted to relax and read a good book. Your home was perfect with everything we needed. The neighbors are friendly and the restaurant on property is very convenient. We have visited the Outer Banks many times and your home was the best. Thanks for your kindness and checking in with us after our arrival.

Beautiful condo but be ready for a few hours of early morning cleaning before you check out

  • 4 of 5

Jeanine was very nice to talk to during the whole process. She was helpful in providing restaurant & sight-seeing recommendations. The condo was clean, spacious, updated and in a very convenient location. Having a lot of space is convenient on days you're stuck in the condo due to rain. We were able to watch the July 4th fireworks right outside the condo. Outdoor deck surrounded the unit. That was also our favorite part especially in the morning & evenings. She was very responsive with all the requests. She also installed wifi before we arrived. We had an issue regarding a credit card fee charge where she deducted 2% from our deposit but was resolved through VRBO's help. Parking was also convenient. Many restaurants & activities are nearby & we were able to quickly get to Nags Head. The unit is situated in a quiet neighborhood perfect for couples & families.

The downside is the same as others have noted. The amount of laundry & cleaning that was required was VERY unreasonable considering we paid $100 for cleaning & checkout was at 10:00 a.m. (we had the cleaning lady knocking on our door at 9:40 a.m.) She requires all sheets, blankets & towels to be washed, dried & folded and all dishes washed & put away. We started the process at 6:00 a.m. Drying towels takes longer during high humidity. My husband & I shared a towel on the last morning to avoid having too many to wash. She also had 2 pages of other instructions. The dumpster for the garbage was far away from the unit & we had difficulty in getting the garbage into the dumpster. My husband and I have rented many units through VRBO, Homeaway, Flipkey & Airbnb and this by far required the most work and yet we were still charged $100 cleaning fee. My sister who stayed with us from Seattle is also a traveler & found the requirements ridiculous.

If she can provide the cleaning lady an extra set of linens for the next guest (she can always use a drop off laundromat for the dirty set), have people pay the numbers they see on the reservation page with no surprises (all fees should appear on that page & not within the property description - raise the rent if you need to net a certain amount) and ease up on the 2-page checkout instructions which are mailed, emailed & left in the unit, this would be the perfect rental.

Owner's Response: We value all guests opinions and appreciate all feedback . Our goal is transparency . This is our home and our guests become family . To clarify , VRBO changed booking policy in Feb and now charges credit card fees and booking fees . This is clearly listed on our dashboard . The minor cleaning includes , removal of garbage , empty dishwasher and washing any dirty linen before departure . These are things you would normally do when leaning your own home as well .We do offer guests an option to bring there own linens if preferred . Our housekeeper then sanitizes and remakes beds prior to guest arrival . This info is clearly listed in contract , welcome letter and shared verbally at booking . Our housekeeper provides an exceptional level of service for all guests and our home is well maintained with continuous 5 star remarks and repeat guests . Many guests state this was the nicest and cleanest home they have ever rented .In addition , our housekeeper offers to assist with any aspect of cleaning on departure and welcomes any feedback to make guests feel more at home . When guests need to leave early on day of departure , she is available to assist . As an owner , it has been challenging explaining the new fees that VRBO has imposed on both the guest and owner however this is discussed at booking with our guests . If you have not rented recently with VRBO this change is difficult to understand however as mentioned , we have listed this on our home main page and will continue to review the credit card fees at booking . Some of our guests actually prefer to mail a check to avoid these fees and we also list this as an option on our site. On our home page we ask guests to not use the book it now button but rather call us first because when you hit book it -the site asks you for credit card info . It's better to email the owner and use the email button on the home page rather than book it button .Each time the guests makes a credit card payment -the VRBO bank vendors add credit card fees that can total up to around 25-60 dollars . We feel the guest needs to be better informed about this and we do try to share this info in multiple areas of the booking process of our home . Some guests don't really care because you are paying securely however others do and we want all of our guests happy .

This location is a perfect place from which to enjoy the Outer Banks. The condo is beautiful! It is very clean and well maintained. We found the deck to be one of it's best features! We would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay. There are beaches, restaurants and shopping close by. We visited the Kitty Hawk Memorial which surprised us as we found it very interesting. Our only downside is we didn't stay long enough!

The owners are very accommodating and a pleasure to rent from. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and we have never been disappointed with VRBO.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the greatest. We visited for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and it was perfect. The view from the decks was great, very spacious, clean and master bedroom bed was very comfortable. The elevator was a nice feature. Owners are great to work with. Always loved the OBX but this trip was made extra special by having such a great place to stay.

Excellent Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and i (both in our 60's) loved this vacation property. Spotless and well furnished with all amenities. Nice location convenient to all the sights. We used it as a base for daily bike rides and kayak tours. Parking is under the condo with a lockable storage room big enough for our kayaks and bikes. An elevator makes carrying things upstairs easy. Owners were very helpful and easy to contact. We will be back.

Great getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great location for the convenience of traveling north and south on the outer banks. It was very clean and well kept that made us feel right at home. Great memories of breakfast on the front porch right across from the marina with our friends from Montana. Definitely would stay here again.
