Perfect home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

Nautical Knoll was absolutely perfect for our families beach trip! They had everything you'd need for a week long stay organized and easily accessible. It was nice not having to pack all of those extras for cooking, beach visits and entertainment. (So much that we rarely ate out, other than a few dinners). Three adults, two teens and one preteen lived in this rental very comfortably. My youngest often has issues with change, rarely enjoying a stay away from home. The first night, she commented she was ready to go home. I immediately went into how we would be here for a week , etc. She quickly cut in and said, "No, OUR BEACH HOME!" That's how inviting and secure this rental made us all feel. So many cool beach trinkets throughout the house to spark discussions. We enjoyed the walk to and from the beach as a group. Sometimes I'd drive the crew down, drop them off and jog back myself if there was no parking space. They have a wonderful neighbor that never seemed annoyed by all of our questions . He had great "best day and times" advice always. He actually saved me when I had left a very expensive diamond stud at the rental. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a more welcoming, (speaking of...the owners left a welcome bucket with not only potential essentials most forget..but nice little gifts for our kids to enjoy), clean, organized and perfect "access to everything" rental. The price was perfect for our friendfamilycation! If you are looking for the perfect rental for the perfect price, Nautical Knoll can't be beat!

Perfect rental in the Outer Banks

  • 5 of 5

The Nautical Knoll was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked. We were glad for the Beach cart and the big selection of beach gear. Lots of games and movies. The master bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed all of the nautical decorations it was perfect for the beach house. Quiet and friendly neighborhood. We loved the 4x4 beach in Corolla. Seeing the wild horses on the beach was the highlight of our trip. The food at Miller’s Waterfront and Basnight’s Lone Cedar was very good.

Linda answered all of our questions and phone calls in a short amount of time. Very nice and friendly to deal with. Our deposit was refunded promptly. Can't wait to come back next year. We couldn’t have found a better rental home.

A home away from home...only better, 'cause it came with a beach (and everything else!)

  • 5 of 5

Nautical Knoll was the PERFECT place for our family of 5 to enjoy our first OBX vacation. The 3 bedrooms gave us plenty of space and it's always a bonus not to share a bathroom with 3 teenage boys! Linda and Larry have equipped the house with everything you could possibly need for the beach and everyday living. We cooked at home most nights and used both the charcoal and gas grills to cook amazing local seafood. The walk to the beach was minimal and so easy with the beach cart that was provided. I had quite a few questions during the week and Linda answered all of my messages within minutes. She checked to see that we made it safely, arrived at home safely, and returned our security deposit within a week of our departure. A+ service from A+ people. Nautical Knoll is definitely a winner due to the care taken by its owners to provide a great OBX experience!

Owner's Response: WOW!! We really appreciate such a good review. We try to rent our beach house the way we would want to be treated when we rent someone else's home. What a great guy!! He has been so pleasant to communicate with and from the first email I knew that he would take good care of our home. As he said it was their first OBX trip & we hope it won't be their last because we would love for them to rent from us again. When they arrived Saturday, it was like, I know our place is going to be okay because I knew this family was going to take good care of it. Thanks again, we really appreciate it!!

Great home, great location to beach!

  • 5 of 5

The property is awesome. This house has a loaded kitchen with everything. Well equipped for children including infants and toddlers. Pack and play, booster seats and plenty of toys for the house and the beach. (we didn't actually use the toys at the beach we brought our own, next time we can leave ours at home and have a little extra room in the car). Easy walking distance to the beach and easy 2 min drive to grocery store. Equipped with a gas grill and a great deck and outdoor shower to wash off from a day at the beach. Linda (the owner) is also very quick to respond to any questions. our kids were even surprised with a goody basket provided by the owner (very thoughtful touch). Will be looking forward to next year!

This was our first trip to the outer banks so we had so many questions and concerns from where to stay, eat, places to see...etc. Linda is very sweet and and answered every question We had in no time at all helping us to make the decision to book here even easier. We have 3 young children (two of them two year old twins) and all 5 of us enjoyed our stay here! We arrived to a lovely welcome basket with little gifts for our three children and a couple of items we may have forgot to bring( which we DID of course, haha) and I thought this was very kind and thoughtful. Loved the swings, outdoor shower, toys and covered sand area so much! We had lovely weather so we were out and about a lot exploring, so we didn't really cook or spend much time indoors, but I can see where if you wanted to stay in or had to you would still have a great time with friends and family as there are tons of board games and anything else you may need. The littles are still asking to "go to miss Linda's house!" Haha we found the house spacious and clean and there's a friendly local neighbor who is also very sweet and comforting to know is around. A short walk to the beach for sunrises and ghost crabbing is so fun! If we ever stay in Kill Devil Hills again we would absolutely go here again!
