The perfect home away from Home
The perfect home away from Home
My wife, five kids and myself really had a great time at Betcha like it. The house was very clean and perfectly located. My entire family especially enjoyed the tower balcony, where we spent many hours watching the sun rise out of the ocean or set into the sound. We loved all the sounds and scenery around us. The property owner was a great hostess, whose personal touch made us feel like family. Thanks again for a great time.

Owner response: Thanks so very much for your kind response. We hope you will be able to vacation with us again for several years to come. We enjoy the location very much, also. It is so very convenient when you need to run back to the cottage because you forgot something when going to the beach - it's just a few steps away. Please do come back again! Mary
The house was as described. The crows nest is a great added touch. The beach access is directly across the street. A great house and stay for the money.

Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Betcha Like It. We decided to purchase this property for several reasons: it's proximity to the beach, the fantastic pool and, my husband's favorite, the covered look-out tower. I can't imagine going to the beach and not being able to watch for dolphin while having morning coffee. Do come back next year if your schedule permits. Mary & Bob

"Betcha LOVE it"
My 4 year old daughter asked what the sign said in front of the house. I told her it was the name of the house: "Betcha like it". She said "It should say "Betcha LOVE it." And she was right. The house was clean and neat. Everything worked and nothing was broken or damaged. (We've stayed in MANY houses over the years and something is always broken or damaged.) The views were amazing from the living room and from the top crows nest. The walk to the beach is great for little ones, since you are directly across from beach access. The pool was refreshing after a day at the beach. It is a communal pool--but that was not a problem. The owner answered many questions from us throughout the months before our vacation started. The house is located near Black Pelican, Hurricane Mo's and about a mile or so away from our favorite place: Johns Place. Recommend to friends and we would stay here again.

The house was very clean. I was a central location for traveling around to restaurants, Roanoke Colony, horses in Corolla and Jockey Ridge Park. We loved the view from the bay window and even saw dolphins and we enjoyed the beach with sand crabs at night. My grandchildren enjoyed the swimming pool. I would highly recomend this house.

We found this to be the best rentals we have stayed at on the Outer Banks. It is well maintained and clean. The pool was a highly welcomed addition as the surf was rather rough that week. The only drawback is that it, like most houses in the area, is not handicap accessible. (Note I have a son-in-law that is in a wheelchair.)

Owner response: Yes, our large pool is so refreshing. The beach is nice, but there are times when a dip in the pool is preferred. So sorry our place isn't handicap accessible for your son-in-law. There's no way to make those changes now but we'll do what we can to make Betcha-Like-It work for everyone else. hope to see you next again year. Mary & Bob
We had a great time at this property again this year! The owner has done a lot to the house over the years as we are return visitors. We saw dolphins and a friendly sea turtle that stayed in the same general area on the beach for several days. Good surfing waves were just up the beach less than 100 yds. A good time was had by all.

The property was very well stocked of essentials needed for the weeks stay. The inside of the property was very well maintained and for the most part clean. The house could use a paint job on the outside in the near future but didn't prohibit any activities on our part. Owner was very prompt with passcodes and information regarding the property. The informaiton book in the house was very helpful. Opportuntiies: The electric frying pan doesn't work but I did not pitch it but wanted her to be aware. Flyswatter was great. It would be nice to have chairs at the pool even they had to be stored at the house and brought to pool and taken back at end of week.

Owner response: Thanks so much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed Betcha-Like-It and certainly hope you will return again. Yes, some painting has already been scheduled for the 'off-season'. The electric frying pan is being replaced, thanks for letting me know. Sorry to say that chairs are not allowed to remain in the pool area overnight. I previously provided chairs but they all ended up broken or missing; however, I'll consider it again for next year.
