Great house

  • 5 of 5

Everyone loved the house, with a great location. Lots of stairs but we can all use the exercise. Lots of room for everyone. Beautiful bathrooms ours had a huge shower. The only thing missing is beach chairs and umbrellas for the beach we did not realize these had to be rented until midweek. We did find a rental company that set them up for us which is great but pricey. The beach was amazing

Owner's Response: Teresa was a great guest. She did not realize that we keep our 6 or so beach chairs in the outside closet near the side entrance! Sure enough we don't have umbrellas, but you can easily bring or rent those!

Creating Memories That will Last A Lifetime

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful. There were a few minor repairs that needed to be done but overall I was happy with our experience. The pool was lovely and the hot tub was a perfect way to relax under the stars. I especially enjoyed that there were games and books provided. My family and I really enjoyed family game night. The two decks was a perfect place to have your morning cup of coffee. The beach was about a ten minute walk. The supermarket as well as a plethora of stores and restarunts were are within walking distance. My family and I were discussing coming back the following summer and we were only half way through out vacation. I definitely recommend this house for anyone wanting to have a great vacation in beautiful and spacious home. It was our first time in OBX and truly enjoyed creating memoiries that will last a lifetime.

Everything I hoped it would be and more

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There were 8 of us and we all commented on how comfortable the beds were and how well we slept. We loved the game room, the wine refrigerator, the tiki bar, the pool, the appliances, the furnishings, and I can't say enough about the bathrooms...the tile work was just beautiful. The house was spacious and had a great floor plan...we never felt like we were on top of each other. There was plenty of outdoor furniture, nice selection of books, cd's, board games and chairs for the beach. Monteray Shores is a great community to rent in, as it offers a gym, tennis, community pool, basket ball, bike rentals, classes and activities for younger kids and much more. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and we would not hesitate to rent this home again in the future.

Family friendly with Privacy

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the home encourages family time in the great room, with views of the ocean. Yet, the bedrooms are very private, allowing quiet time too. Lovely furnishings, excellent kitchen, large dining table and beautiful pool are a plus. Close to the beach and shopping. The owner is very good to work with, and responds quickly. The home was immaculate when we arrived. Oh - the bathrooms are stunning! Enjoy!

Beautiful Home & Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this house for our bridal party to stay in the week of our wedding. The house is absolutely beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice. Extremely high end finishes and furnishings, everything you could want or need to have a amazing vacation! Everyone had a great time and loved the house. Would definitely recommend both the house and owner, he was great to deal with throughout the entire process.
