Come recharge your batteries in this charming sound side home that sleeps 6-8 in this 2 bedroom (Jack and Jill bath connecting), loft with 2 double futons and 3/4 bath has all you need to relax and leave only if you want to -- soundside park across the quiet dead-end road, grilling, dining and relaxing on the incredibly large screened in deck overlooking the canal. Enjoy the sunsets from the sunroom or take a glass of wine across street while the kids play on the swings or in the water at the beach while you remember why OBX has your heart.
The Blue Heron is the perfect place for an OBX vacation. This was our second summer renting this magical house. The location is ideal. The house is in a quiet neighborhood with amazing trees and sits across the street from a beautiful little park. The sunsets over the Sound are wonderful from a bench at the park or from the rocking chair in the front room of Blue Heron (my favorite last year as I was recovering from surgery).
The drive to the beach is along back roads without traffic and the parking passes allow you to park with easy access to the beach.
The house is fun and eclectic and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. My husband and I love the front sun room and my son likes to play his guitar in the loft.
The owners are friendly and helpful. The central location allows for exploring the island and the local restaurants are great!
Great location and the house has lots of potential to be a wonderful vacation rental, unfortunately the owner is not maintaining the outdoor areas and was not helpful during our stay. We chose this rental mainly for its outdoor spaces and were very disappointed to find the chiminea rusted out, all beach amenities unusable (chairs, umbrella, boogie board all broken), poison ivy covering walkways, debris covered porches, and lots of stagnant bowls of water breeding tons of mosquitoes. We contacted the owner on several occasions and she was not helpful and invited us to do the yardwork ourselves (not our idea of a vacation). The inside was clean but also starting to fall into disrepair (sticky notes throughout the house indicating which appliances did not work, multiple burnt out light bulbs, etc.). We have stayed in many vacation rentals and have never experienced this or an owner that stopped communicating when we requested help or reported deficiencies.
Nice, comfy house; everything we needed to cook and be comfortable in general. GREAT location - right on the canal (behind the house) and across the street from a nice little sound-side park, that included a bocci court - cool!
Also, we did some wonderful bicycling - right from the house, we found wonderful cycling opportunities. The neighborhood is very bike-friendly - not much traffic, and just beautiful surroundings. We visited in early April, so the traffic is likely quite different other times of the year.
There are also dedicated bike lanes in nearby areas.
We had a great week!
The house was in ready condition when we arrived. All dishes, silverware, pots and pans provided in addition to washer, dryer, 2 kayaks, beach chairs and the list is endless of all the items provided. Felt at home with all the Ementities. The owners were fantastic and flexible with arrival and departure times. We loved using the beach parking passes!!!! This was our first vacation and first time renting a house in the obx. The owners lived up to all our expectations with the house and made our first vacation an amazing experience! We can't wait to plan our next stay!
The Outer Banks of North Carolina provide miles of public beaches with as much or as little seclusion as you desire. From the less-populated northern Banks up in Carova requiring 4WD for access and wild horse watching to the popular activity of people-watching in Nags Head, there are sandy spots for everyone. While once considered a sleepy seasonal seaside area, the Outer Banks have matured into a year-round destination for people from around the world. Restaurants, once scarce in the off-season, are now often open year-round and with some of the best coastal cuisine you may ever eat! From the freshest in-season fish to local produce and meats, there is food to suit everyone's palate. Watersport activities range from swimming and surfing to kayaking, jet-skiing, and parasailing. Tanger Outlets offer some quality merchandise and convenience for low price name-brand shopping, and many antique and thrift stores dot the main North-South route from Kitty Hawk to Cape Hatteras. Some of the most amazing sunsets happen here, and one of the best places to see them is from the dunes at Jockey's Ridge State Park. Come in the morning or early afternoon and try your hand at hang-gliding with specially trained professional instructors. You may also want to take advantage of the proximity of OBX to the Gulf Stream for some of the most adrenaline-pumping deep sea fishing you will ever experience. There are many choices at every price range, so if you ever wanted to try it, this is the place to go. Surfing along the Banks is often challenging even for experienced surfers, although you probably won't encounter anything more than six to eight feet at the highest, these waves break closer to the shore than most places. Boogie and wake boarding is also a favorite activity for children and adults alike. Most beaches have lifeguards on duty during the majority of the day, and while some beaches allow pets year-round, Southern Shores is not one of them. There are signs posted at beach access points and pet owners are required to clean up after their pets.
Whatever you choose to do, you are here to relax. And you chose the right place to do it.
