Why Grady Courson chose Outer Banks

It was just want we wanted for our family of 4, the house was new, well kept and cozy. It is very convenient to the beach and close to shops and stores. We love to golf and fish, our kids loved the beach and wanted to learn to surf.

What makes this house unique

The quietness and quiet neighborhood with the enclosed porch made this an easy choice. The house has just enough room and open. The view from the living room faces east and we loved the sun rise walks we took.

Excellent. I highly recommend this home.

  • 5 of 5

The Wave Runner was the Perfect Beach House vacation! We definitely recommend this as a wonderful Vacation home. Planning for this vacation began 7 months ago because my husband wanted us to experience the area he enjoyed visiting as a young teenager with his family. We traveled over 1500 miles and the Wave Runner made everything worthwhile! The cottage was as perfect as the online description.

The house was spacious and well stocked both inside and outside. There was a nice welcome treat along with the essentials to start. The Bagel Place coupon was super. The Outside Closet had many beach supplies we expected that we would need to purchase after arrival. The Kitchen was as well stocked as my kitchen at home. Grady sent a few texts to make sure everything was as we needed it to be.

The location was also perfect. We enjoyed many activities from Corolla to Hatterus. The block and a half walk to the beach was easy. Every restaurant and deli was enjoyable. All of them were great but we never ate at the same place twice other than 2 trips to the Bagel Place. Our entire vacation was a great adventure. We had a great week! The weather was perfect and so was the house. We hope to visit again!

We just returned home from our wonderful vacation. The waverunner is a perfect beach getaway! The house is stocked with everything you need, including whatever you need for the beach. It's just a short walk to the beach too. We spent some time doing other things as well, Bodie Island and Cape Hatteras lighthouses, the Wright brothers Memorial and Jockey's Ridge. The location of the house made those trips easy. Grady was in touch with us as well so if we were to have any problems they would've been taken care of in a timely fashion I'm sure.

Thank you so much for the use of your home!

FYI....If you are traveling north on checkout day, we left shortly before 8 a.m. and had no problem at the bridge.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Driving 1200 miles to get to this home was totally worth the trip. Being from the Midwest we had no idea what to expect. We could have never dreamed of a better place to stay. Two blocks from the beach, a room full of beach supplies, two bikes, fishing poles, plenty of chairs for outside and the beach and that's before you even walk in the door. The inside was perfect. Plenty of room for two families with kids. New hot tub, big refrigerator, washer and dryer. Plenty of games for the kids to stay busy. We traveled all over the OBX during our week long visit and I truly believe that this is the best area of all. Thank you Grady for all that you did to make our OBX trip perfect. I almost forgot to mention Billy's Seafood to try Miss Judy's tuna salad. It is the best ever!

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

We just recently stayed at the Waverunner for a week and what a great house. This was the first time going through VRBO so I was a little nervous, but Grady made it so easy and reassuring that it turned out perfect! The house was very spacious for 7 of us. The cathedral ceilings made it feel bigger. The kitchen was well supplied. The decks were awesome along with the Beach Closet-that was the best! It had everything we needed for the beach and more. The house very close to the beach as well which was nice for my 4 little kids. The owner supplied a nice welcome treat along with the essentials to start. We had a great week! The weather was perfect and so was the house. We hope to be back again!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of finding this gem of a vacation home and cannot say enough positive things about it...well equipped, well stocked, impeccably clean, and close to the beach. Grady, the property manager, was gracious and responsive to all of our questions and needs. After vacationing in the Outer Banks for over 20 years, in a variety of rental homes, this undoubtedly was our favorite...we cannot wait to return.
