"The Sandbox was a great place to stay for our family. It was spacious enough for the kids to run around and it had a great floor plan! Eileen was wonderful and offered some great tips as well as check in with us to see if we needed anything. The beach was close enough for my two year old to walk to. I would definately stay again next year!"

"This pet friendly home offered a perfect location for a family getaway to the beach. The location, less than five minutes walk to the shore, is in a quiet family neighbourhood. The home was equipped with everything a family will need in a home away from home. Walking distance to a number of good restaurants, as well as a great convenience store, meant that we did not need to use our car on a daily basis. Travelling as a couple with a young dog, we closed two of the bedroom doors as they were not needed, which made the size of the home easy to maintain during our stay. Simple touches, like the backyard swing, and comfortable furnishings, made this home an easily maintained and enjoyable property. We enjoyed our one week booking so much that we extended it to two weeks, and hope to return in the future!"

"I want to start by saying the owner John was not only informative, he answered inquiries immediately and was extremely helpful and a great communicator. That is very reassuring when traveling to an area you are not familiar with and finding out ahead of time what to expect. THANK YOU JOHN! One of my biggest concerns is that the home is extremely clean. It was. The other concern is that it is located in a safe area. It was. The rest was a bonus.
The view was spectacular. The privacy was just what I wanted for this trip. There are a mass of beautiful homes in the Outerbanks, most of which are located in subdivisions (not appealing where I am concerned). John's home was warm and inviting, very private and very perfect for our particular needs. The name Isolation fits it to a tee.
A couple of my family members joined us for a few days and loved the house and location as well.
I read a couple of other review and someone mentioned that the carpets were stained. When we arrived everything was cleaned and since it's a rental you have to expect the carpets can have an occasional stain since they cannot be steamed cleaned after every visitor. Being a germaphobe myself, the condition of the carpets did not bother me in the least. They were well vacuumed and the house IS ON THE BEACH! There wasn't a bug in sight inside the home. I wish all the VRBO rentals we've occupied were as clean. The cupboards were immaculate and so was the refrigerator, oven and microwave as well as the bathroom facilities and bedding.
Yes, I would definitely love to return to Isolation. Thank you again, John for being so kind and helpful."
