A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This summer will be our 6th year staying at Ebb Tide. Every time life gets us down, my husband and I just think about sitting on the deck watching the beautiful sunrise in the mornings. We are so thrilled to have found the perfect vacation home to get away to every year. So much thought has been put into the amenities - the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to create awesome meals throughout your stay, the furniture is comfortable, the decor is beach-y and inviting. Being so close to the ocean and hearing the waves at night is something we miss terribly when we have to leave. We get to stake our spot in the sand first thing in the morning and watch some early morning fishermen and let the dogs chase the tide. We even enjoy the summer storms that crop up while we're there. Mother nature can sure put on a show over the ocean with some spectacular thunder and lightning! It's also nice to have the option of just staying up on the spacious deck if you don't want to get all sandy and still having the ocean just as close. Opening the front door when we get there the first day and walking into Ebb Tide is such an indescribable feeling of being home again! The owners are friendly and truly a pleasure to deal with every year and we look forward to many more summers at their "little piece of heaven".

Bucket List

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at Ebb Tide for several years and have always enjoyed it. We stay for 2 weeks in October and highly recommend spending time at this wonderful house on the beach. After this years stay we can remove experiencing a hurricane off of our bucket list. We arrived at Ebb Tide 45 minutes before Hurricane Matthew hit Hatteras. My thought was that if it got too bad we could head north and get out of it. What I didn't know was that 15 minutes after we got on Route 12 the road was closed to anyone headed north or south. If anyone has any questions about how safe the house is I can tell you that it stood up to 98 mph winds and surf that was going under the house and down the street next to the house without a problem. We lost power for about 6 hours and the cable went out 6 days. It was GREAT!!! No cable, no internet, no noise, hardly any people and no work related stress. The best part was when the storm cleared. Due to the damage north of us Route 12 remained closed for 6 days so the people renting homes for that week could not get to their rental until Thursday afternoon. We basically had the entire beach to ourselves. The fishing turned on and we enjoyed several days of having the beach to ourselves. The weather was beautiful and we had another wonderful 2 weeks. If you are looking for a comfortable little house on the beach, this is the house for you. We have had the privilege of meeting and getting to know the owners. They are wonderful folks who really care about the house, you and making sure that your stay is nothing but the best. We have already reserved our 2 weeks for Oct. 2017. The time will not pass quickly enough for us to get there.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third vacation to the Outer Banks and we so enjoyed our week at Ebb Tides! Each year we have stayed at an ocean front home, but this house gives new meaning to those words! The unobstructed sunrise views, being able to see the water from the couch, kitchen, and sunroom, and falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves right outside your window is priceless. The home was clean, well equipped, and perfect for our family of 5. Our 3 children loved having space to play games, enjoyed the sand toys that owners keep in the house, and immediately found the treasure chest! We enjoyed watching the fishermen and surfers, and walked down to the pier one afternoon. Rodanthe has several cute shops to visit and some restaurants to check out- including a great pizza place that delivered! Bill and Sallye- thank you so much for sharing your home with our family. Our week of rest and relaxation in Rodanthe is one we will treasure forever! I'm hoping this is a first of many getaways here!

Owner's Response: It is the most gratifying feeling to have our guests really appreciate the beauty of our oceanfront home. Yes, the sunrises, the fishermen, the waves and sounds of being right there on the beach, are a few of the pleasures and satisfaction of enjoying our home. Thank you so much for your review and compliments. Bill & Sallye

Where do I begin? We were thrilled with our two week stay at Ebb Tide.

* Location to Oceanfront was our#1 priority, we desperately needed a haven to restore our weary souls. (We are caregivers to both our parents Alzheimer's, late stage). Ebb Tide delivered perfectly ~ Sunrises were inspirational. Our first thought each morning was how majestic ~ Marveling at how powerful each sunrise was. Each new morning came new energy, joy and life to our tired bones.

* The House ~ was Perfect for us. We were looking for all the comforts of home, while keeping the beach house feel. Ebb Tide delivered! We love to cook ~ and I can assure you the house has everything you need to whip up a gourmet meal (from scratch) & have all the tools, pots, pans, dishes you will need. You will appreciate all the forethought Sallye & Bill have put in to making sure your stay a pleasure.

*We voted Ebb Tide the most comfortable house we've ever stayed at in OBX! After 9 other houses we've stayed at, all being very nice, couldn't match how cozy, well appointed, and clean Ebb Tide is. The furniture is comfortable, the house is decorated beach perfect, relaxed and welcoming. From having foot wash stations by each door (loved that thank you!), to beach toys, fishing pole, doggie crate, movies and games. If you want it, needed it, or haven't even thought about it... Well... Bill and Sallye did!

* Beach Community ~ Totally enjoyed the setting. Our beach area was a delight. During our stay we had a nice blend of folks to visit with. Young families with children, to locals exercising pups in the water (we loved Luke, watch for him, he's very entertaining!), to honeymooners.

* Area to do ~ We enjoyed exploring Rodanthe (never been there before). We found some very good restaurant's. Definitely try Waterman's Bar & Grille the food will surprise you, homemade, fresh. Sunsets are great, while you dine on the deck, the surfers put on a great Kite boarding show! Families with kids will love the big open grassy area for them to enjoy! ~ Captain Rolo's in Frisco is worth the drive. You can go there with a sandy bottom and feel welcome ~ Ketch 55 in Avon was our dress up night out (if sun dress and chino's=dress up). Great food ~ Shrimp and Grits & Mixed berry cheese cake to die for!

* Business end ~ All requests & needs were met promptly. Property was represented accurately. Homeowner's were courteous and very fare to work with.

Overall ~ We loved our stay at Ebb Tide.

So So week at Ebb Tides

  • 3 of 5

Once inside this home you will be greeted by a cheery and bright interior with most all of what one would expect in an older summer cottage. Kitchen was well stocked with most everything you need, it was clean enough, beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra pillows/bed coverings. Washer and Dryer nice to have and the screened porch was a plus.

Best part of the week: Enjoying the incredible views from the front deck! The front deck is enormous and we sat many hours watching nature and humans pass by…even were treated to 2 rainbows! Walk down the steps to beach and the edge of the water is no more than 25 yards away! Listen to the waves while you fall asleep at night – not bad!

Worst part of the week: That one is easy - Arriving home from a visit to Manteo and finding someone parked in our designated parking spot. Not the worst thing to happen – but rude for sure. (We had to get him off the beach to move his car – took about 20 minutes to find him). And then let’s chat about the party directly in front of “our” Ebb Tides deck. The group of about 30 people were there for hours with barely a thought as they put up their school flags, tents, corn hole boards, coolers, chairs and gathered literally 10 feet in front of the house. Really? I am aware this is a public beach but to rent the home with beachfront and pay almost $2500 to get this mess not one but 3 out of the 6 days we had the house was a big issue. Beach etiquette?? None.

Full disclosure: Wish I had known that Ebb Tides sits at the end of a row of homes on Surfside Drive whom all access the beach right next to Ebb Tides. Add to that the huge campground next door and you get HIGH density beach…high volume as well.

Second slight issue: The waters were ROUGH. We witnessed a rescue while we were there and I assume that is not unusual. Do not come here if you are not prepared to hold the hands of your loved ones (big and little) as they are pulled by the undertow down the beach.

One other tidbit important for those first timers to this area to know: Ebb Tides is 15 minutes away from any “real” grocery store (pack coolers ahead is best idea for sure)or better than average restaurant and 40 minutes away from most worthwhile activities. Plus, we had a few days of rain and wanted to “binge watch” Netflix episodes but ran into lots of trouble with the slow and unreliable internet connection.

Bottom line - Ebb Tides not for us - buyer beware.

Owner's Response: We are sad that your stay at Ebb Tide did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, no owner has the ability to regulate who, how many, or when the public decides to use the beach, circumstances may arise (rare) that can be against a tenant's liking. This is the first and only tenant that has complained about the beach.
