                    This "off the beaten track" beach house was just what we needed for a family vacation. We had an unusually great weather week and enjoyed waking up to the "Beach music" each day. While we appreciated the improvements that had been added to Seaquester, we hope that trend will continue to enhance this home.

                    Our family had a great vacation week at the Seaquester in September! The Seaquester was everything we hoped for in a beach house. The home is a short walk out the back door and you're on the beach. The home is spacious and more than adequately stocked to make you feel at home. The home was clean and well maintained. Nick the caretaker responded when the coffee pot cracked and replaced it within hours of our call. The whole family enjoyed the pool and slide and our labs loved running and playing on the beach and in the surf. I would highly recommend this beach home to friends and family. The adult "kids" asked me to reserve for next September already! We are a family with adult children and one grandchild (so far).

                    Our extended family (and 2 dogs) spent a week at the Seaquester and had a fabulous time! The property is well kept, clean, and spacious - there was more than enough room for the 8 of us. The added refrigerator and TVs in the bedrooms were nice additions from last year. The view of the ocean from the deck is spectacular. We enjoyed the beach every day (as did the dogs - who are allowed on the beach all day long). The pool was great for the kids, and they really enjoyed the slide! The pool was cleaned the day we arrived and mid-week as well, which was a nice touch. The owners were extremely cooperative and helpful before and during our stay. This was our second stay at the Seaquester and we would not hesitate to stay there again - we absolutely loved it!!!

                    This house is absolutely an incredible getaway for beach lovers! Beautiful brand new flat screens with DVR's in every room, Play station 2, two refrigerators, pool (can be heated for extra and hot tub! Huge flat screen with HD satellite TV! All the luxuries you ever wanted. The beach is extra wide here with no huge drop to the beach. Very easy to carry your beach gear to the beach. And tons of toys for the kids. Even with a few days of clouds and rain, we played in the pool since we had it heated. That was awesome!! Thank you for everything!!

                    We had a blast!! Loved the house, it was a perfect fit for all 13 of us. Loved the view, the access to the beach, the private pool and hot tub. The pictures on line didn't do it justice. It was a first visit for all of us and won't be our last. The caretaker was great and took care of any issues, which were minimal. The owners are super nice and easy to work with. The gas grill was a nice bonus we didn't know about and the two refrigerators were great. The kitchen was equipped with all the things you could ever need. I highly recommend staying at this house. We hope to visit again in the future and would definitely stay here again!! Thanks for the great memories....from the Indiana gang!!!

                    This was a great vacation house! The service from the caretaker was out-standing. The second fridge in the kitchen was a life saver. It was great that it was not down in the basement as in other houses we have rented. The pool was heated and the slide was great for the kids. I also appreciated that it was a dog-friendly house. We walked on the beach every morning. Had the basketball, horseshoes, and even toys for the pool. I was also surprised to find nice touches you do not get from the "bigger rentals" like dishwasher soap, bug sprays, and cleaners under the sink. Made the clean up easy. I highly recommend this house for the service, the location, and the price.

                    My husband & I really enjoyed our stay at the Seaquester. The location is great -- steps from the beach & only 2 miles from Duck. We only used the 3rd floor -- with the best views of the ocean. (There are no ocean views from the bedrooms.) The description of the house is accurate (e.g., nicely furnished & decorated, well-stocked kitchen with 2 refrigerators, TVs in every room, washer & dryer, fireplace, etc.). It was awesome to sit in the living room or on the deck and watch the rising sun, crashing waves, men fishing in the surf, and soaring birds (pelicans, seagulls, ospreys, sand pipers & sea terns). One morning we witnessed a whale migrating north and another morning we saw both ends of a double rainbow. Be sure to bring your binoculars! We enjoyed the heated pool, hot tub, and sports activities (basketball, volleyball, and horseshoes). We also enjoyed burning a “fire log” while watching a movie after dark. Nick was quick to respond to all our questions. He even came by to clean the swimming pool at the beginning of the week. Our only quibbles were the “gunky windows” and the “musty smell” in the lower levels. Nick explained that the windows had been cleaned two weeks earlier, but the weather had gunked them up again. So, we bought a squeegee and cleaned the living room sliders. The “musty smell” in the bottom floors might have been resolved by opening up the windows. Because we were living on the top floor, we didn’t bother about it. Our favorite activities included walking on the beach and riding bikes on the off-street trail. We rented bikes from Money$Worth because they deliver & pick up for free. We also enjoyed a Wild Horse Adventure Tour. In addition to seeing the wild horses, we saw dolphins surfing off shore. If you own a 4-wheel vehicle, you can drive along the beach (on Highway 12 north of Corolla) on your own. Our favorite restaurants are Aqua and the Blue Point. For gourmet take-out we recommend Steamers. And be sure to try the addictive Duck Donuts. Our favorite shops are in the Scarborough Faire Shopping Village and on Duck’s Soundside Boardwalk. In addition to the shops, you get to see some beautiful coastline habitats. We were lucky to see a sunning turtle and a grazing deer.

                    This home was exactly what I wanted! Oceanfront...hot tub...heated pool.....great decks....and steps from the beach! The kitchen had everything I need to cook....and having my dogs there was a plus!! The only thing that would have put it over the top for me would have been an extra small fridge for beer/wine....tv's in the bedrooms and the dead bugs on the inside of the screened porches removed...(made it feel dirty and my granddaughter doesn't like bugs) My 3 year old granddaughter loved the pool and the slide and we had an all-around great week! The weather was awesome except for one day when it was a bit windy!!

                    Perfect location! 2 miles north of the edge of "town," we biked with the kids to town as well as in the other direction through Pine Island. The beach is the right amount of "private" and was very dog friendly. The pool was great, and the kids loved the slide. We did run into an unidentifiable bug in the house, on the next to last night of our stay, and the house was as clean as you can expect a pet-friendly house, but we must say that this was one of our best and most memorable stays in OBX. We could see returning to this house in the future. This was our 7th year in OBX, and we tried some new places to eat. We enjoyed the Paper Canoe (probably the closest restaurant to the house), as well as Aqua, Red Sky and Blue Point for dinner, as well as Duck Deli, Duck Donuts, and our favorite lunch spot, the Bad Bean Taqueria in Timbuck II.

                    We had the best stay at SeaQuester...my mom(83), and two sisters flew down from CT to stay with us. A dear friend and her two teens joined our three teens, my husband and I and really enjoyed the pool, slide, and the beach The kids rented wave runners one afternoon....super cool. In all we had 6 adults, 5 teens and an infant. The house accomodated everyone and we appreciated the different levels and gathering spaces so the kids had places to hang out separate from the adults.. We laughed a lot and cooked in most nights...we loved the house, the beach and all the amenities. Thank you for such a great place to rest, relax and enjoy the shore.
