Perfect for a large family stay.
The property site on the Sound was beautiful. We kayaked, as well as did stand up boarding, and windsurfing in the Sound. The house offered such comfortable areas for our large group. Great gathering spaces, but also great getaway spots. Perfect for large meal times, game times, and hangout times. Beautiful outdoor spaces. The pool was a real hit! Location is so close to Avon Pier for fishing and swimming in the ocean. We found we could play pickleball just down the road in Buxton and enjoyed a couple outings there, as well as visited the Lighthouse. We loved Avon...not too busy, yet provided the needed amenities. Everyone would love to return, felt it was the perfect location for us to "just relax" which is frequently not easy to do. Thanks for sharing your home.
The pictures portray a nice property, then you get there and they do no justice! Place is AMAZING
It was the first time to the Outer Banks and I took my 3 older kids, a friend and his wife, and brother in law and his family. We got to the house early to drop off luggage, and the people from the week before were still there(sick kid). They told me I was going to love this place. Well, they wer'e right. The house is very spacious with plenty of beds. More bathrooms than a high school! Even a shower outside on back deck. Kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals if you stay in to eat. Shopping, food stores, resteraunts all within 5 minutes of Natalies place. Surfs Seafood supplied us with a boil(actually4) that we added lobster tails too. UNBELIEVABLE!! Everyone got their fill. Took the ferry(free) at Hatteras to Ocracoke Island one day. Drive your car right on it. Worth the trip!!!!!!! Beach there is so beautiful. Back to the house, it has an awesome pool with a HUGE deck, very private. Wrap around deck with hot tub in front and the most amazing sunsets you'll ever see, reminded me of Key West. She has bikes to ride, kayaks and paddle boards, ping pong table and one of the best sleeping hammocks East of the Mississippi! Natalie was a superior hostess and is readily available to answer any question. I can't say enough about this vacation property. I know that there are a lot of nice homes in OBX, but this one deserves you to check it out. We had a fantastic week. Everyone said one of our better vacations we have had.
Bill and his family were great guests and pleasure to host; easy to communicate with, respectful of house rules and very pleasant. We will host them again anytime!
Wonderful Rental. Great for kitesurfing and fishing.
This was my family's first vacation in OBX and we are already planning another next season due to the charm of this rental property. It had everything you could ask for. The house is spacious and inviting. It was very clean and stocked with the necessities. The bedrooms are huge and the beds were very comfy. And last but not least, the WIFI actually works well for those that cannot leave work at home. I enjoy kiteboarding and this house was perfect for launching right from the property, basically the water equivalent of ski in/out. It has a big yard and we were able to rig a few kites at the same time. The location is central relative to the other popular kiting locations in case you need to chase the wind with Real/Waves being to the North, Buxton/Frisco to the South. It's also next door to a marina which made it a breeze to launch the jet ski's we hauled down. We kept them on the water behind the house the whole stay so we were able to jet ski anytime we wanted. We fished right from the backyard and caught plenty of fish including some huge red drum that we enjoyed grilled and in a ceviche. Being on the sound side, we were able to kayak and SUP on the calm water and enjoy the breathtaking sunset. It really does look just like the pictures. There's also a great local seafood store nearby, we bought some grouper and the freshest dry scallops I've ever had. Not to mention the Food Lion nearby, which made it convenient to pick up any necessities you may have forgotten to bring. Not much else to stay, had no complaints and setting things up with Natalie was smooth and painless. Highly recommended, just don't book the dates we plan to book next season.
House is in a beautiful location!!!
If you have the chance to stay here, WOW! The views over the sound are amazing! The house is wide open with views of the water from everywhere!
Natalie is a wonderful owner!!!
Great group, continuous and clear communications, respectful of house rules. Will definitely welcome back again.
Great place to get away
This was the perfect house for our extended family to get together for a week! Everything that we needed was provided - pool, hot tub, bikes, kayak, paddle board, life jackets, hammocks, plenty of games, puzzles, and books, and a well stocked kitchen. The view of the sound (and sunsets) behind the house was amazing! The owner was also incredibly responsive to any questions we had during our stay. We would absolutely stay here again!
What a wonderful group!
Thank you for staying with us and you are welcome back anytime :)
Amazing from the beginning!
We had a group of 14 for the week we stayed at this wonderful place. This was the first time any of us had visited the Outer Banks and a wonderful time was had by all. We were all in love from the minute we drove up. The house is so much more in person than in the pictures . It was clean, open and plenty big enough for the entire group. The view and the sunsets will leave you speechless. The pool and hot tub were extra icing on the top. The men fished every day right out the back door. The kids found hermit crabs and experienced kayaking and loved it! You can, literally, step off the deck into the water, which is clean and clear. We met Mark on our first day. What a great guy is! He and my husband talked fishing and Mark gave some great advice. Any question we had Natalie responded immediately.
The town of Avon is also pretty cool. We were able to get fresh seafood right around the block, eat awesome crab legs less than a mile away and the Food Lion is close by. We took the kids to Orcracoke via the ferry, arrive for the ferry before 8 am or plan on waiting. I could go on and on but suffice it to say we had no negatives about anything our entire trip. Natalie and Mark were both helpful and very kind. We cannot wait to go back.
What a wonderful group! Very pleasant, respectful of house rules, great communications. We will welcome Julie, her family and friends back any time!
Spa and Marina nearby. Quaint fisherman village with fish market nearby.
Very quiet, family friendly.
Folks often ask me why I choose to be on the sound side instead of the ocean. It's a matter of personal preference, of course. But here are my thoughts:
Sound vs. Ocean side...
Sound side is more serene, relaxed and quiet and you don't feel like you are sharing your vacation with hundreds of other beach goers. Having said that if you want to mix and match you can always cross to the Ocean side - takes 5 min.
I am not an early riser, so even though I love sunrises on the ocean side I am not usually up that early to enjoy them, especially when on vacation. This makes the sunset displays off our deck one of the biggest highlights of this location.
If you have children in your party, depending on how old they are being on the Sound side can be a great advantage - no violent waves or rip currents to worry about. They can simply walk into the calm water and swim, play and enjoy. You also get the homey feel and a contained space where it is easier to watch the kids as it's just you and your family on the beach. Teenagers may want to do some kayaking, windsurfing, sailing or kiteboarding - all better suited for the sound side.
I also like the fact that you can walk to the local fisherman village, watch the sailboats and the simple life that goes on there - just a different feel, more local, less touristy. It's a matter of preference.
If you or your kids/family are into kitesurfing/windsurfing/kayaking/sailing - Sound side is the place to be! Prevailing winds are side-on-shore SW and the water is relatively shallow making it a safer environment for the wind/water sport enthusiasts to enjoy their hobbies. For surfers on the other hand, Oceanside location is certainly the place to be.
All that said, some folks prefer Oceanside locations and there are certainly plenty of gorgeous spots to choose from! Those are usually quite a bit more expensive though.
