Description

Ocean Sands, Section F House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 14

ONLY 120 feet from the Beach. Enjoy the breathtaking ocean views and the unique decor while vacationing. Unlike many of the newer 'mansion' beach houses, this house maintains the feeling of a true beach house while providing a comfortable vacation center for beach lovers.

The first floor features 4 bedrooms (each with its own half bath and sharing a shower/bathtub with a neighboring room), and a full laundry room. There is also a Private Hot Tub and a Gas BBQ Grill, along with a hanging swing and deck chairs. The second floor offers the large great room, kitchen, and dining area, as well as gorgeous southeastern ocean views! There is also a fifth bedroom with full bathroom access. The kitchen has modern appliances and is of an open design. Sunbathers will enjoy the large wraparound decks on both floors. The third floor consists of a game room/sun room fully equipped and ready for some fun with a queen futon, TV, Wii, and a Foosball table.

Discounts given to military, law enforcement, fire personnel and teachers. You should be recognized for what you do for US.

Pets aren't just welcomed - they are ENCOURAGED!

Amazing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most amazing time staying here and would definitely love to come back!! This house had everything we could need from a beach house and more. There were enough games and activities to keep our two young children busy and they were absolutely ecstatic about sleeping in the bunk beds! The owner was more than accommodating and I felt that, if I needed anything during our stay, he would have provided it to us. We love that we were able to bring our dogs with us and enjoy our vacation with them too! All around a great vacation!!!

Wonderful house w/ great views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love this house. We are able to bring our dogs for a VERY reasonable fee and the views from the deck and master bedroom are great. The owner is very quick to respond to any issues and genuinely wants you to enjoy your stay.

Our Go-To Home in the OBX.

  • 5 of 5

For value, convenience, and comfort, it doesn't get much better than The Dog House. We have stayed here several times and will continue to do so. The location and views are incredible. Steps from the beach, right down the road from grocery stores, shops, and restaurants. Large kitchen and dining room, plenty of bedrooms for large families, and a comfortable living area for watching movies or playing games. We will be staying here for Thanksgiving and again next January for a long weekend getaway. Love it and love our time spent there.

Love that we could bring our dogs! Great weather week! Homeowner extremely responsive

  • 2 of 5

Great house! However, in much need of updating and general housekeeping and maintenance. Hardwood floors would be much better, as the carpets were dirty, smelly and just gross. The cleaning service did a terrible job of cleaning. The front door and area around it was full of cobwebs....that's the first thing you see. Great hot tub, but only half the jets work. Unable to use the game room as some sort of construction is going on to expand...had to keep children and pets out. Unable to open many windows because we could not close them or the shank was broken. The pictures in the description do not at all represent the property. However, the homeowner was very accommodating and responded quickly to all of my emails. Maybe a first hand look by the homeowner would be best as I'm not certain he is aware of the condition. Would return if home was cleaned up and necessary repairs made.

Great location and Great home

  • 5 of 5

Fully equipped and spacious home just a few short steps (35 to be exact) from the dune way to get to the beach. Clean and comfortable rooms with wonderful views. Completely enjoyed our stay (our dog approves too). Close to shopping (if you're so moved to cook while you're at the beach) without ever being bothered by any traffic. Greg is great and made sure our stay was top notch. Will definitely be booking again.

Fantastic location and great property

  • 5 of 5

Great layout and perfect location. 30 steps to the dune-way to get to the beach. Lulled to sleep each night by the rolling waves. Wildlife abounds in the field outside with a view of the waves from the third level deck. Clean and well kept. Will definitely be booking for next year.
