SEMI-OCEANFRONT!! FRIDAY CHECK-IN!!
Why spend the 1st day of your vacation sitting in traffic? Why spend the 1st evening of your vacation in a crowded grocery store? Our spring and summer Friday check-in allows you to miss the traffic and start your vacation before 'everyone else' does. Then you can spend Saturday sitting on a quiet beach rather than stuck in traffic or in a line at the grocery store. With our Friday to Friday rental you can jump-start your vacation and have the WHOLE weekend to enjoy.
Our home is located on beautiful Island Pines Dr in Waves, NC on the Outer Banks. It is a quiet cul-de-sac that is a perfect family location. 'Island Pines' is only steps from the dunes and ocean but is surrounded by pines and cedars which offer plenty of privacy when you are relaxing by the private pool and hot tub or on one of the many spacious decks.
Island Pines is large enough for your whole family. There are 5 master bedrooms so everyone can have their own space while still spending time together. The large kitchen and great room on the top floor are a great place for gathering your group together for meals, games or movies. In the fully stocked kitchen, the 2 dishwashers and separate ice maker will make entertaining easy. There's lots of room for multiple cooks and a huge island for serving.
There is also a 1st floor game room with a pool table and TV with DVD and VCR. The wet bar with full size refrigerator and microwave will help keep snacks and cold drinks available when you are having fun in or out of the sun.
Also on the 1st floor, there are 2 large master bedrooms with king beds and private bathrooms, as well as a bedroom with a pyramid bunk bed that has access to the full hall bath.
There are 4 bedrooms, a hall bath and a laundry area with washer and dryer on the 2nd floor. Two of the bedrooms are master bedrooms with king beds and private bathrooms. Each of these rooms has a sliding glass door that faces the ocean and offers access to the shaded deck overlooking the pool. Open the slider wide to let in ocean breezes and the sound of waves crashing against the sand!
There is also another large king bedroom and a kids bedroom with 2 pyramid bunks that share the full hall bath. Each of these rooms has access via a patio door to a shaded deck which is a perfect place for relaxing with a book or taking an afternoon nap.
Just up the stairs on the third floor you will find one more large king master bedroom with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. This bedroom also has a slider which opens to the top sun deck where you can enjoy your morning coffee and scan the ocean for glimpses of dolphins playing in the surf. Many of the bedrooms have a TV and DVD and/or VCR. A loft just above the great room is a quiet place for playing a board game, enjoying the view or checking email.
Island Pines has something to keep everyone happy, but of course you'll want to spend time outside in the sunshine. The soft sand and warm waters of the Outer Banks are just a 2 minute walk across the quiet cul-de-sac. Enjoy swimming, fishing or just walking along the beautiful seashore. The beach is huge, wide open and uncrowded. Cast your line right into the surf or walk down to the Rodanthe Pier for deeper water fishing without the time and expense of a chartered boat.
For the water sports enthusiast in your group, Waves is an ideal location. The area is world-renowned for windsurfing and kite surfing. You will see these adventurous athletes out on the water just about every day. Just a 5 minute walk down Island Pines Dr (located behind Dairy Queen) is a rental company where lessons and equipment are available for surfing, kayaking and windsurfing. From there you will have direct access to the quieter waters of the sound.
At the end of the day, enjoy a short walk down the quiet, tree-lined Island Pines Dr to 'Top Dog Cafe' for a burger or to Dairy Queen for an ice cream cone and a spectacular view of the sun setting over the sound.
You won't want to leave the Outer Banks, but our Friday check-out makes it a little easier. After a relaxing week of vacation, when its time to go home, you'll miss the traffic again. Check out Friday morning and get home with a whole weekend ahead of you to regroup before getting back to your usual routine of work or school.

Everthing I hoped it would be
Everthing I hoped it would be
I planned for a year for "Cousins at the Coast" ...and with this house to share with my family it was everything I hoped it would be. Spacious, CLEAN, a very short walk to the beach thru the dunes, and a feeling of privacy offered by the foliage around the property. For our group of 17, from toddlers to grandparents, the house was a comfortable fit for everyone with all the comforts of home. The kitchen was equipped with much more than I imagined making cooking for a large group fun & easy. The gameroom/pool area was the nightly entertainment hub for the cousins. Within minutes of getting out of bed, I was walking along the beach watching the sunrise every morning. Tucked away on Island Pines Drive we enjoyed privacy, family, beach, relaxing, playing pool, swimming in the pool, hot tub, FUN. Convenient location allowed us to visit numerous tourist attractions. With a very short drive, we could choose shopping at privately owned shops (art, jewelry, books) or the more commercial souvenir stores. The informative emails exchanged with the owner were helpful in planning for my first ever beach vacation. I would book this house again - wonderful memories for our family - incredible value!

Perry Getaway 2013 in OBX was Awesome!!
Perry Getaway 2013 in OBX was Awesome!!
Every 2 years my extended family get together for a vacation and this year we decided to travel to OBX. Each member has our "must haves" in the house we would choose and this property had it all! We were able to meet everyone's needs with a large number of master bedrooms/baths, having our own pool and hot tub, being so close to the beach, large kitchen, several gaming areas, and all the amenities offered in the house. Everything was clean and well maintained. We had a couple small instances where we needed maintenance to come over to assist and they responded promptly and were very friendly. We have had a great experience all the way from the time we started and booking the property, to the pleasant cleaning staff, and even got a nice note in the mail from the owners at the conclusion of our stay. We had a couple days of rain, but we made the best of it by scurrying down to the beach each time the sun popped out and even swam in the pool during the lighter drizzles. The rainy days were short lived and having the pool and beach so accessible really made it easy for us. Our favorites in the area: eating dinner at the restaurant at the end of the street, touring at the Lighthouse, having a fire down on the beach, playing games at the house, dolphin tour, the Pier, and of course swimming & playing on the beach. We would definitely stay at this property again. Thank you for a wonderful week!!

What a vacation!!
What a vacation!!
Our family had a GREAT time in Waves. The house location is EXCELLENT (right off the beach) and the kids loved the pool after a day in the ocean. The house itself was as advertised! (What a view from the top floor.) The best part is that we weren't on top of each other; my wife and I plus my 3 children with their families (8 grandkids) each had their own bedrooms and bathroom. At nlght the grandkids loved walking to the Dairry Queen for a little snack! If you're looking for a GREAT family beach vacation, I highly recommend this property!!

We have been visiting the Outer Banks for the past 16 years and this is the only house that we stayed in more than once. We love the lay out, the furnishings, the location....I really can't think of one negative thing we have found any time we have stayed here. If you have a big family or group who want to stay together and have plenty of room for relaxing, eating and even private areas this is a great place to stay!!

Beautiful Home Great Location
Beautiful Home Great Location
This home was everything the owner said it was plus more. Clean, well maintained, and beautiful. We had a group of about 20 and had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy. Great value for being so close to the beach. Love the location because it is quite and laid back. We just love this home. The owner couldn't be nicer. If they want to sell some day, we would be potential buyers!!

Me and 7 of my girlfriends from high school, stayed in this fabulous house for our annual Girls Retreat. The house was more than we ever expected and we had a wonderful time. The Kitchen was my favorite spot in the house (I'm an avid cook), it had everything we needed already there for us. We only had to grab our groceries and we were set. There was ample parking and the beach was just a few yards away. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away from it all. We had a great time hanging out on the large deck and of course in the hot tub. There was plenty to do, even though it was off season. We went into town and took part in a wine and beer tasting, visited several lighthouses and can't wait to go back again.

Fantastic house layout.
Fantastic house layout.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Island Pines. The layout of the house is very attractive, practical, and well decorated, perfect for families with children, with a bright feel due to all the windows. The owners are wonderful to work with. Hurricane Irene wiped out our original week, so the owners kindly offered us another 2 weeks that were open at no charge! We would recommend this home to anyone looking for a house of this size in this area. You will not be disappointed!
