Spring break!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Dawn's Dream the week of April 23rd, 2017 and the house was awesome! Lots of space for our group of 7 (we were later joined by two of our cousins). House easily handled our group which varied in age from 12 to 75. The owners were fantastic to work with, they were kind enough to open the pool a week early for us and we get several chances to use it! They were extremely quick to respond to our questions and very flexible which made our stay memorable. Location of the house is great, quiet neighborhood just a couple of miles from the Hatteras National Seashore. The house is right on the beach, views were great from the decks overlooking the pool each morning. House was roomy and clean, just bring starter toilet paper! :) Plenty of TVs to go around and the pool table came in handy in the stormy days. Surf fishing was good and the area is very nice, lots to see and do and locals are super friendly, shopping and dining are very close by. We're definitely headed back next year, thanks Dawn!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time and I am happy to see that you want to return. The toilet paper issue has been resolved as there was supposed to be a starter roll in each bath.

Celebrating the start of Spring!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Dawn's Dream. The house is located in a quiet section of the Outer Banks, but close to the action. The ocean views were breathtaking and we enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the dolphins swim by.

The house is well-equipped. We cooked a couple dinners for our large group. We put the extra dishwasher and refrigerator to good use. The bedrooms were spacious and nicely decorated.

Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time. Yes, that time of the year, as well as many others are a wonderful time to spend in the Outer Banks. Dolphins are my favorite as well and it is so cool to just watch them have a great time. Hope to have you and your friends back again any time.

Absolutely Beautiful House with Gorgeous View....

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Nags Head and we are so glad we stayed at Dawn's Dream. The house was absolutely gorgeous with a picture perfect view!! It was very clean and very well maintained. The directions given to us beforehand were spot on and the transaction was effortless. The keyless entry was perfect and so convenient. We were so excited to see the dolphins jumping out of the water in the morning. Our dog loved the beach and it was so nice to meet other dog owners so they could play. Our daughter and her friend enjoyed having their own "master suites" with their doors opening to the second level deck where the hot tub was. The location of Dawn's Dream was perfect!! We were only a 10/15 minute drive to all the major well known restaurants in the area. The strip had lots of specialty shops and coffee shops. Some were not open for the season yet, but we still had enough that were to enjoy ourselves. There is a Food Lion about 2 miles away for groceries. The Wright Brother's Museum was only 10 minutes away as well as the Bodie Lighthouse. We would definitely stay here again!! We HIGHLY recommend this place!!

First Time "Outer-Bankers"

  • 5 of 5

Dawn's Dream is an amazing vacation home! Plenty of room for our four families, totaling 18. Very clean. We all had wonderful time. The house had everything we needed and then some. Loved all the decks to view the ocean and Dolphins. Thank goodness the ocean and the pool were only steps away, everyday the temp reached 90+ degrees. Great location as well, things to do in every direction, from a five minute drive to an hour drive. The nearest grocery store was only a quick 8-10 minute drive, too. Thank you Dawn and Jeff for sharing your lovely property.

Fantastic House!

  • 4 of 5

Dawn's Dream is a fantastic house! The bedrooms were large, the house was clean and having multiple refrigerators and dishwashers was a great feature. When we arrived the house was very clean and equipped with plenty of towels. The house has games, puzzles and a pool table. The pool is wonderful, as is the hot tub and the house is right on the beach making it easy to go back and forth. We would definitely stay at Dawn's Dream again! It was an amazing family vacation in a wonderful location!

Kansas family of 17

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time! From a 6 weeks old baby to a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, we all found just what we needed at Dawn's Dream. We were close to "The Lost Colony" play, the Wright Bros. memorial, great restaurants, light houses and most of all the ocean. What excitement observing the crabs at night on the beach and the dolphins near the beach almost every morning. Parasailing was nearby and all of us (except the 6 week old) enjoyed an exciting ride without too much trouble. Having Dawn's Dream to be our home base with all that we needed made our vacation exceptional.
