  • Paradise on earth!

    "I was looking for a vacation spot for my family to enjoy spending time together. I found "A Stone's Throw" and I am hooked! We love the privacy, but also love the short walk to the beach & the sound! Let's face it, the sunrise & sunset over the water is calling to all of us! One of my favorite sites is watching the pelicans fly in formation over the ocean! I love sharing a respect for nature with my children & grandchildren! The birds, crabs, and wild horses are all around the area. We even saw a deer in the woods next to the house. The house is amazing & perfect for our family. The top level has a kitchen built to accommodate a big family. We had 11 & could have easily fit more around the table & counter. The sitting room on the top floor was spacious. We loved the top deck because it was safe for the baby to toddle around & perfect for the big & small children to blow bubbles. This level also has a master bedroom with a wonderful bathroom complete with a jacuzzi tub! The king sized bed was perfect for a 3 year old, a 2 year old, & a 1 year old to have a dance party on when a storm came and they couldn't play outside! The middle floor has a comfy sitting room & my husband's beer fridge. We can also squeeze a gallon of juice in there for the babies staying on that level. Three nice bedrooms are on this level & (drum roll please) another jacuzzi tub! One bedroom has it's own private bathroom! The deck on this level holds the glorious hot tub! This deck, unlike the top deck, has stairs to the ground! We used baby gates to keep the kids & dogs in! The bottom floor has a king bed & bunks & another full bathroom. Guess what, another sitting room! I loved being able to just pull the car under the carport & just unloading into the house without dealing with the steps after driving all day! We still were able to enjoy the pool in September. The kids found the toys & had fun playing & learning to swim. We found our paradise on earth & will be returning for at least 2 weeks every year! As we have gotten older, we have found that it gives us more time to relax before facing the drive home. Matt & Sue are the best at making the trip feel heavenly. If you need anything, they are a phone call away. I always spoke with Susan & she will bend over backwards to make your stay wonderful! The deposit is returned quickly & fairly. It is wonderful to meet people who are kind & honest! I feel a friendship has developed between us because of the kindness in their heart! Blessings"

  • Castle by the Sea

    "This was our second stay at the Castle by the Sea. It goes without saying that the location is magnificent. Each morning we watched the sunrise over the ocean. One morning we saw a group of Dolphins swim by. We had good weather, so we really enjoyed walking/ playing on the beach. The house is spacious and easily accommodates a large family group. There are tons of bedrooms and wonderful hot tubs in many of them. The little kids loved the baths at night in what seemed like a swimming pool to them. There are plenty of spots for different family members to enjoy time to themselves, and large spaces where we could all be together. While we were too late in the season for the pool, we really enjoyed the out door hot tub. The house is generally well appointed. The kitchen quite well stocked (although not as well as last year). My guess is that various guests throughout the season have taken their toll on that. Same with the house, there were some minor repairs that need to be completed before the start of the new season, but overall we loved our week at the Castle, particularly because of the beautiful setting and the spaciousness that allows for both our children and their families to be together."

  • Kleck IL

    "This home was fantastic for a group with children. The pool was so much fun for our children. The Adults enjoyed the hot tube as well as the pool. We all had plenty of room for the large group to spread out. All rooms were clean and comfortable. I also was so happy that the beach was a short distance from the house. With 6 small children, I do believe is would be dangerous for us to keep a safe eye on all children. I would recommend this house to anyone with a group of children. Beaches were fantastic. Outer Banks was a enjoyable family vacation."

  • Great for couples and families

    "Thanks for the elegant yet peaceful stay during our anniversary getaway. We traveled with our dog for the first time and were delighted with the clean fresh accommodations you provided. We enjoyed days on the beach and walks to feed the turtles at the lake every evening. Our dog Jade enjoyed that very much. I would highly recommend this place to families, couples and of course dog lovers looking for a great getaway to the Outer Banks."
