Escape from Reality we did!!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited the Outer Banks for the Blue Grass Island Festival and had the pleasure of staying in Escape from Reality. We had a wonderful time in the Condo while we were there. We did not get to spend as much time as I would have liked on the beach or by the pool simply because we were too BUSY with the festival but we did have a wonderful time. We had two little girls ages 2 and 5 that loved the movies and the games that the Condo had to offer. Paul was great to work with and we look forward to returning.

Beautiful, clean & very convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Escape From Reality & we absolutely love it! It's always clean and everything is well taken care of. The kids love having a pool to play in after the beach. It's so nice to have such a variety of beach equipment available for our use. Paul is extremely kind and helpful through every step of the way. We highly recommend this condo!

Absolutely loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, brother and sister-in-law, and my mother and grandmother spent a week in this condo mid June and absolutely loved it. The condo was clean and comfortable for 6 adults. The elevator and close handicap parking made this trip easy and enjoyable for my grandmother who has limited mobility. It's conveniently located to a nice handicap beach access and the pool was a nice extra that we aren't accustomed to having at the beach. We also loved the deck and sat out there most mornings enjoying coffee. The book of attractions in the area was also nice to have. We enjoyed several outings including to Kitty Hawk Memorial, Jockey's Ridge, and the wild horse safari in Corolla. Can't wait to come back and visit again soon!!

Perfect Location - Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and everything was just as expected. The kitchen was stocked extremely well and it was great knowing there were already beach supplies at the condo when we arrived. The beach was not crowded and the water was so clear and warm. The walk to the beach was just a few minutes away. It was a nice plus knowing there was an elevator, especially when we were packing and unpacking the car. The pool is wonderful and very well kept. One of my favorites was sitting on the deck reading every morning, nice and peaceful and in the shade in the morning. This location is great, close to restaurants, putter golf and many stores within walking distance. The owner followed up with questions regarding the property and rental in a very timely manner when we were preparing for our vacation. We hope to return in the future.
