Fabulous week!

  • 5 of 5

The Last Resort was perfect for our family vacation. Plenty of room, very clean, and provided views of the ocean and bay that were incredible. We took lots of pictures of the sunset over the bay and full moon over the ocean . The bay was great for splashing around - at high tide it was less than 4 ft deep, and low tide only 2 feet or so with a sandy bottom... very fun to float around on the tubes or jet ski if you're taking a break from the waves on the ocean side. The screened in porch provided a perfect place to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset.

Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My extended family loved this place. Clean and lots of room to spread out with the decks and different levels.

It was a treat to have a place that we could watch the sunrise and sunset from the same deck. And, the beach was so handy and fun for us. None of us had been to NC before, and this place will be hard to top in future vacations. A rental place two miles up the road will deliver and pickup kayaks and paddle boards.

This was our first stay at a VRBO, and it was a great experience. Highly recommend it.

Great fit for extened family and friends

  • 5 of 5

The Last Resort was a great house for our party of 10, there was plenty of living space both inside and out on the large decks. The views were wonderful, we enjoyed watching the sunset every night, and from standing in the middle of the house you can see both the intercostal and the ocean. Having the dock available was very nice and we were able to kayak around the intercostal easily. We also enjoyed having a screened in porch with a dinning table, having the outdoor shower, and that the kitchen was very well stocked! Overall The Last Resort was a great place to spend a long weekend and we would definitely come back!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Last Resort was a beautiful home, clean, comfortable and well kept. It had great views of Bogue Sound and lots of birds stopped by on the dock, which was also a great place for a relaxing morning coffee. The house was spacious and well equipped, and just a wonderful retreat. We enjoyed every minute there. Very relaxing and memorable.

Summer memories

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was wonderful again. This was the second summer we stayed at this house and it is very comfortable. We appreciate the hospitality. It is centrally located and just across the street from the beach. Very convenient. Thanks to the owner for great memories.
