Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Grace was perfect for our stay. We were in town for the Flying Pirate Half Marathon weekend. We were close to everything in the area (restaurants, beach, etc.) The owner, Cheryl, was great! She was always just an email or a phone call away. I loved the house and wish we could have stayed longer!!

You won't go wrong with this beach cottage! Cheryl and Gary (the owners) were wonderful to work with and go above and beyond to make sure your vacation is great. The house was perfect for us and our dog. He really enjoyed going up to the observation deck! It is at the perfect location. Close to the beach, restaurants, and shops! We were able to walk everywhere. The only hiccup of the trip was that the refrigerator broke (no fault of anyone...appliances break:) but Cheryl had lowes come the very next day with a brand new one! We will totally be back next year! Thanks for a wonderful vacation!!!! Again, you won't be dissappointed especially if you are bringing your fur baby!

Cozy Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful vacation. The house was comfortable and very clean. It is close to some of the best restaurants in the Outer Banks and a short walk to the beach. We had a great time and loved that we were able to bring our dog, Jethro, with us. Thank you Cheryl and Gary.

Spring Break trip

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the location and amenities/condition of this property for our April Spring break. An easy walk to the beach and property was as described. It was also super nice to be able to bring our dog Rosie who loved the beach too! Despite the weather being a little unseasonably cool a few days and a very windy night, we had a relaxing time. Couch was perfect for napping. Owners were very easy to communicate/work with and deposit was returned in a timely way. (Bikes were a bonus, though we only used them twice...was a nice option and wouldn't have wanted to rent a bike for the week due to the weather!)

Comfortable home in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our time in NC and at your house, Amazing Grace, thank you! It was just what we wanted, enough space for my adult children and close to all the places we wished to see. The house was clean and we enjoyed the upper deck taking in sunrises and sunsets. I'd give this place 5 stars but we had a glitch with the hot water on the first day, which Cheryl & Gary took care of immediately. I'd rent here again.

Car: recommended

This home is located near milepost 8. Walking distance to the public beach access and many fine restaurants.

The Outer Banks is a great place to make memories. Besides the beach and ocean, you can go sailing, fishing, kayaking, jet skiing, para-saling & more.

You can also enjoy a hike up Jockey's Ridge, the largest sand dune on the east coast. ( Take a hang gliding lesson !) A short drive North takes you to the 4 wheeling beaches where you might spot a herd of wild ponies. A short drive South takes you to the island of Ocracoke.

Also visit the Aquarium, Outlet shops Marinas with fishing charters !! Lots to do and time to do nothing !

About 20 minutes north, Highway 158 in Grandy there is a wonderful antique collectible shop DANNY'S DISCOUNTS it is a must stop! Their phone number is 252-453-0222. This is where I get some of my special treasures you see !
