About Chuck Trimboli

As 2 New Yorkers that grew up on Long Island and loved the beach, my wife and I were exploring the jersey shore ..crowded! then we went to Ocean City, Maryland... Commercial!! then went to Virginia Beach ... Commercial & crowded!!! We continued to the Outer Banks (OBX) and loved it, reminding us of the Long Island of our youth! We returned every year and now plan to retire in Sounds Good, our dream home.

Chuck Trimboli purchased this house in 2007

Why Chuck Trimboli chose North Carolina

The Albemarie Sound and Kitty Hawk Bay have a whole different vibe and it gives your beach vacation a double dimension.

What makes this house unique

Adjacent to Sounds Goods is a private sand beach. Watch the kids from the deck.

Beautiful views, a bit off the beaten path

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful views, relaxing place. Beds were uncomfortable for us, we ended up purchasing a foam topper( both of us have back issues). Please note that water access from the property directly is difficult. You must carry kayaks a ways to put in.

Amazing views & quite neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sounds Good! The pictures do not due justice for the beauty of this home. This was our 5th time staying in OBX, and this house by far had the best views! We also really enjoyed the community, very laid back and less touresty. The sound beach access is very nice and we enjoyed the pool as well. Overall we loved everything about our stay and can't wait to come back to Sounds Good!

Very roomy!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sound View. Ten of us were able to stay very comfortable. It is a drive to get to anything- stores, beach, etc. and the community pool does close a little early, I think 5:00. That's no fault of owner, just something to be aware of. Owner was great at responding to my questions prior to our trip.. He responded very quickly.

Nice property with great views of the sound.

  • 3 of 5

Nice location with pretty views of the sound from a comfortable deck. The community pool was great and perfect for young children and it was free of charge.

We did have some issues. The floors had sand on them, needed better cleaning. Also bedroom 1 was listed as containing two queen beds but only one was found. This caused some moving of furniture to make everyone fit. Finally, one day we had a very heavy storm and the upstairs master bedroom (Bedroom 1) had a leak from the overhead vent above the bed.

Sounds Good

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. It was clean, needed nothing but linens and our suitcases. The sunsets are spectacular and the beach beside the house was great for swimming and kayaking. The community pool was available and there was water aerobics and a spectacular view of the sound from the deck of the pool. We saw dolphins in the sound and the water was about 20 yds from the deck which made for quiet time near the water. Great house.

Breathtaking views!! Supreme comfort!!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little concerned because there were not more photos of the indoors, but I was more than pleasantly surprised with the accommodations and amenities of this home! My family and I have stayed in many rentals in Colington. We rent several homes for the week and take turns with dinners. When my other family members saw this rental they were in awe!! The rooms were so spacious with very comfortable bedding. The living area was comfortably furnished as well. The added bonus was the amazing views of the sound that could be seen from the living, dining and kitchen areas. Every night we witnessed the most brilliant sunsets right from the living are or deck. This will definitely be a repeat for our family!!
