Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10) We rent year round!

Please book early for 2018 as our property usually books up by March for the summer! This immaculate home is located directly on the Albermarle Sound with a private dock and swimming platform. Enjoy a (FREE) solar heated swimming pool just feet from the Sound. We also use a salt chorinator, which is much healthier than chemicals and better for the skin. An acre of beautiful landscaped yard and breathtaking waterfront views are yours to enjoy!

There are two large Master suites with Andersen french doors that open to sitting areas where you can enjoy the serenity of the water with your morning cup of coffee and listen to the variety of native birds. The home, with touches of Cape Cod decor throughout, has a total five large bedrooms, three full baths, a large indoor jacuzzi tub, , wood floors, French Doors onto a patio, a gas fireplace, and a beautiful piano.

Also, the bedroom areas are on either end of the house and separated by the common living area (living room, kitchen and dining room). So, there is much more privacy in situations where there are two families or if the adults want to be separated from the kids (smile). The property is located on nearly an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds with several large pine trees where the kids can explore the hideaways, nooks and crannies, and spend hours swimming in the lake-like Sound or in the heated pool with Soundfront views. Use the firepit in the backyard for smores!

Guests have told us time and time again that the pictures don't do justice to the experience. There are (2) two-person kayaks for your use and a hammock for relaxing in the back yard. Crabs are plentiful from the dock and the Sound has a clean, sandy bottom and is just 4 feet deep for 100 yards. Call soon to enjoy kayaking, swimming, fishing, bicycling, or relaxation at our home.

Located away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists but close enough to enjoy the quaint shops, the local winery and eateries. This house will provide the rest and relaxation you need. If you are looking for an escape with or without family, we invite you to visit our Soundfront home at the Outer Banks!

About Tawyana Fleming

I am a nurse anesthetist and fitness instructor in Columbia, MD I am passionate about fitness and good nutrition. I have traveled a good bit and have tried to create an experience for families who visit a "Sound Decision" It offers privacy and many opportunities to reconnect with each other as it seems all have such a busy life these days.

Tawyana Fleming purchased this house in 2004

Why Tawyana Fleming chose Outer Banks

We have been visiting the Outer Banks for several years. We wanted a quiet location to spend time with our family. We were so blessed to find a property right on the sound with an existing dock and all on one level. Its located on the mainland but still on the most beautiful waterfront and the best sunsets at the Outer Banks. Its a 5-7 minute drive right over the bridge to the main Outer Banks attractions so its close to the 'action' but private for those of us who truly like a vacation away from it all. This is a unique location and the only vacation rental property in this neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

An acre of flat land with a beautiful back yard right on the Albemarle Sound. The crabbing right off the dock is excellent. The water is clean with a sandy bottom and about 4 1/2 feet deep as far as you can see! The salt chlorinator solar heated pool is open from mid-May to mid-October The home accommodates 2-3 families very comfortably with 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths. We provide one canoe and one kayak for your use in the sound. We have several repeat renter families that have been coming to the Outer Banks for a long time. Once they stay at our place, they say nothing else compares and its like staying at a home rather than a rental property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has got to be one if not the best rentals for this area! The view and the privacy, by far, cannot be beat! The owners have thought of every ammenity possible-they are a pleasure to talk to and work with. This home is much more than meets the eye and I can honestly say that we can't imagine staying anywhere else while visting the outer banks! Even in the "off season", my young children (3,5, and 8)were completely satisfied and entertained! We will be back and cannot wait to sit once again in those red chairs by the ocean!

Soundside Serenity

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Point Harbor. The serenity and beauty of the sound was so relaxing! The location was great as it was not in the middle of all the Outer Banks traffic and congestion, yet close enough to go to there when you want. We would love to visit again! Thank you for the opportunity to stay in this wonderful home!

Great location but everything else was terrible. Home was worn nothing like the pictures

  • 1 of 5

My wife and another couple rented this home from August 19 to the 26th. When we arrived at the home the temperature inside was 86. The kitchen was dirty so my wife and buddy's wife had to clean it. Called the owner along with the two emergency numbers and left messages. Never heard back from anyone until the next day when the fire alarm went off for no reason. We weren't even cooking. Fire chief came and knocked on the door and informed us that this wasn't the first time he was at his house for the same reason. Owner claims she never got the text. The fire alarm beeped until the next day until we were able to get ahold of the security company and told us how we could shut it off. For the next day the temperature was 82° inside. The pool and the view made the stay enjoyable. The pool did have a leak so we had to keep putting the hose on so that the level of the water would be above the skimmer. We were told not to move any outside furniture because it was strategically placed. The real reason was because if you moved anything you would fall apart. You couldn't sit on some of the outside furniture because it wouldn't hold your weight. The cushions on most of the outside furniture along with the wicker set on the porch were too dirty and worn to sit on. Out of the three bathrooms only one didn't have a problem. The one in the master bathroom didn't drain so your feet were in water when taking a shower. The other bathroom shower adjuster didn't work and the sink drain was all rusty. Must give owner credit because she did send a plumber to fix it. Washing machine didn't drain. The TV in the living room have a sign saying don't use broken. When we mention that to the homeowner she acted like she had no idea even though it had the same handwriting as the note on the fridge that said, welcome to my home here's my number if you have a problem. Photos on home and away site showed an outside Jacuzzi hot tub. When we got there there wasn't one and the photo was taken off of the website. We have used Homeaway in the past and have never had a problem. The owner did offer to refund our money minus the one day if we could find somewhere else to stay. Unfortunately there wasn't any vacancies at that short of a notice. I do have photos to back all of my claims.

The location is perfect, right on the sound in a nice neighborhood

  • 2 of 5

I felt for the condition the property was overpriced. There was no hot tub as shown on the website. The amnesties are pretty dated. The house has had several additions and feels a little choppy. The tvs and internet kept going out and had to be reset. The bathroom in the master bed was EXTREMELY small, maybe 7-8 sq. Feet. This is a nice property at a much smaller rental price.

Owner's Response: Dave I am sorry you felt the property was overpriced. In 6 years we have not increased the price to keep it reasonable for families. I feel sure if you review similar 5 bedroom 3 full bath properties with private dock, kayaks, inground pool on one acre right on the water you will find our property is very reasonably priced. We do not have hot tub listed as an amenity as it's not offered. As far as the cable service goes I have absolutely no control over that and It's left to the cable provider Mediacom. I do know it rained a lot the days of your trip so possibly your review was biased as you could not spend as much time enjoying the beautiful yard and waterfront as you might have liked Best of luck in your future ventures and thanks for choosing our home for your family vacation.

Had a great time!

We were two families with five children and this property worked very well for our needs. We had an amazing time here and are glad we chose A Sound Decision for our vacation. Everything we needed was provided and this really is a great property. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Excellent waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home for a large group to stay in. Great for kids too. We all had a good time while staying there. The dock off the sound is great. We caught a few blue crabs and one perch, that we threw back. We also enjoyed kayaking along the bank of the sound.
