  • Party of Six

    "Our "party of 6" just returned home after spending 9 delightful nights at Blount's Creek. When first looking into this rental property, we explained to the owner (Bill) that we were looking for a vacations spot for three couples who live in Virginia, Tennessee & Arkansas! Each year, one couple checks out locations for our annual vacation -- 2014 comprises our 10th year of vacationing together. As this was our year to look for a vacation location, the pressure was on but once we located the Blount's Creek House & shared the information with the other couples, everyone agreed this was our 2014 vacation spot! Bill answered all our questions & was waiting to greet us upon arrival. It was a pleasure to meet Bill and he was most eager to give us a personal tour of the house & property. This home met every one of our expectations. We most enjoyed the comfort of the Blount's Creek House - complete with privacy and beautiful views. Although we all gathered on the private fishing dock to fish, it quickly turned to catching big blue crabs and was a vacation highlight! Within a few days, we caught 60 big blue crabs - resulting in 16 cups of crab meat! The experience was even better since we used the outdoor cooking pot to cook the crabs -- while sitting around the yard having a good time with the best of friends. Bill promised a well-stocked gourmet kitchen...which we used to the fullest extent as we took turns preparing wonderful home-cooked meals (lasagna, beef tenderloin, lamb kebobs, baked chicken, fresh flounder stuffed with our fresh crabmeat). One meal highlight was the low-country shrimp boil which we cooked outdoors - made easier as Bill had crab pots and cooking equipment handy for our use. During multiple trips to downtown Washington, we visited 1)the fresh fish market for the freshest of flounder & shrimp; 2) enjoyed strolling downtown adjacent to the Pamlico River; and 3) on our last night together, enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Bank Restaurant. We had a great time together on a day trip to Beaufort NC and on another day two of us went shopping in nearby Greenville. One couple enjoyed several days of golfing at a nearby course. Otherwise, we stayed at Blount's Creek House to take fish, crab, relax, read, take naps & our daily Happy Hours!! We look forward to a return visit and are thankful for our new vacation memories with lots of pictures to remind us of our good times in this lovely home!"

  • Great Location.

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was clean. The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great Location. Great Beach. But left something to be desired. The house was in a great location, right between the sound and the ocean, and the layout and amenities worked well for our family. However, we were disappointed with the level of cleanliness (or lack of) on arrival. We expected more for the price point."

  • Great, relaxing vacation home

    "The home was wonderful to stay in. My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary in the Outer Banks. We liked how there was a neighborhood feel and away from the main drag, but it was only 10 -15 minutes to the ocean and much less to the Sound. The owner was very responsive to our questions (both e-mail and phone), and he was honest in his answers to our many questions. The security deposit was returned in full to us the day after we arrived home. The wifi worked well. We also very much appreciated that we didn't have to rent Saturday to Saturday. The rental price was very good, especially compared to so many other places in the area. If we come back to the Outer Banks, we'd very likely stay here again. The only significant negative was the amount of sand / dirt and some pet hair that was inside the house when we arrived. With many beaches nearby I understand how tough it is (we spent an hour cleaning our own sand before we left) to keep these homes clean; however, we did not anticipate spending about two hours vacuuming rugs and sweeping the floors our first evening staying there. Although we didn't need them, the kids' bedrooms were neat with the décor. Also, there were many kid-friendly videos available that'd be an added bonus if we brought our young child with us next time. Finally, the nautical theme throughout the house was great. For 5 days, it was a home away from home for us. I'm glad we stayed at "Sanity Break"."

  • Family Vacation

    "We had a wonderful stay at Coastal Cravin!! Easy, short walk to the beach! A great size kitchen for cooking and hanging out all together. The boys played basketball everyday with the hoop right there in the driveway! Very close to Food Lion and Harris Teeter and many out fun store, restaurants and shops! We had a blast hanging out in the basement with the pool table and grill on the bottom level. Nice to have the added bonus of a large flat screen tv in every bedroom too!! Will definitely recommend to friends!"
