  • Great rental!

    "Sorry, this review is two weeks overdue. My husband and I had a super week at Breakin Wind with our two yellow labs. The house is very well equipped and the furnishings are beautiful and very comfortable, exactly as pictured . We so enjoyed the barbecue and jacuzzi on the outside deck. The views from every window always brought sightings of the wild horses and we even had them in our yard and under the carport. We loved our daily walks in the peace and quiet of this special area. Our dogs , Amber and Buddy LOVED running on the beach. The house has a great movie collection which we enjoyed taking advantage of. Although we never met Terra she was great about making sure we had what we needed and made us feel she was available if needed. We will be back with our kids next time to use those extra bedrooms!"

  • Mermaid's Wake

    "Our stay at Mermaid's Wake was for a week. The owners were very hospitable and caring and provided everything necessary for a stress free vacation. The interior was well stocked and very clean. The exterior allowed for maximum enjoyment of both sun and beach with easy beach access and a deck that was spacious and allowed great views in all directions. The deck also had speakers attached and we were able to enjoy music through the sound system provided. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back."

  • Awesome Family Vacation!!!

    "This was our families first time in OBX and we had a amazing time. The house was absolutely huge!!! The beds were comfortable beyond belief, the whole house was clean, neat, well stocked (way more than we expected) There was a nice extremely informative binder waiting on the kitchen counter for us with everything we would need to know while there for vacation. Plus each room had a sealed package of towels, wash clothes and hand towels were all provided we just brought our beach towels. Bed linens were also provided. we had a issue with the pool on Memorial day, i sent a text to Karen and she quickly responded and then sent someone out within a couple hours to fix it, we had another issue with the pool on another day and before the end of the day it was fixed again. Excellent and courteous service. The wild horses were abundant and were all around the house, the beach, ect, we have some amazing pictures. There is also a outdoor shower that is covered, private and....Has hot water...simply amazing as i was expecting only cold water. There are 4 main rooms that all have sliding glass doors that go out to the porches, 2nd level are right convenient to the hot tub and was clean, hot and comfortable (there were a couple of us that have never been in one so it was a true experience). Oh and there are beach chairs, seats, buckets after buckets of beach toys for the Children so don't worry about getting any of that to drag along to your vacation as it is all provided. Including swimming equipment, boogie boards, ect. the pool area has a abundant amount of tables, chairs, recliner chairs for sun bathing and a outside bar right under the deck! The whole house has Central zoned AC which kept us very comfortable. The kitchen is huge and well stocked with every pot, pan, dish, silverware, cup, wine glass, shot glasses, kids cups, little kids silverware ect. there is also a booster seat and a nice pack-n-play. hmmm....i don't know what else i may have forgotten...well anyways we are already booking this same Amazing place for next yr oh and it has amazing sunsets and sunrises and is not even a minute drive to the beach!!!!!!!! Thank You Karen for making a memorable Family Vacation we are all excited and counting down the days until we come next May!! You ROCK!!!!"

  • Great home and location!

    "This house exceeded our expectations! The pictures did not do it justice. It's a quick walk down to the surf and pretty easy to find off the main pathway. Very well taken care of and our two lab mutts loved it. The owner was great to work with, and kept great communication both before and during our stay. We could have not asked for more. If you want a relaxing vacation to truly get away from crowds-this is the ideal location."
