Wonderful OBX Vacation
"This was our 4th time at this house & once again a great time was had by all! Since our last visit the kitchen was upgraded, a new hot tub was purchased, a swing was added to the front deck,a new ping pong table was added to the game room and bunk beds were added to the a third floor bedroom. We didn't realize the the bedroom had been changed to bunks and that is the reason I deducted a star. We had 2 adults sleeping in that room and it was a bit uncomfortable for them. We just love this home for the many reasons. The pool is spacious for large crowds. Your whole group can enjoy it at the same time. There is plenty of outside furniture and the hot tub is a plus w/ a cover that is easy to remove. The game room is perfect w/ a pool table & ping pong table and sm counter and frig. The only thing the game room needs is a sink. There is plenty of seating in the kitchen and living room and the house is so roomy that you can have privacy if you want it and be together for movies and games when you want that too.This house is perfect for large groups,family reunions and wonderful beach memories."

"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."

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
First, Paramount Destinations are pleasant and easy to work with. Quite helpful. Next, the pictures and descriptions don't do full justice. The house is beautiful in all aspects. It was clean and well maintained.
The wi-fi router wasn't configured to allow us do chromecast. This did dampen our plans one evening. But luckily we found other solutions. Next time, we'll check to make sure that works before renting.
We'd love to go back there again. But then again, we also want to try one of Paramount's other properties."

"What a fantastic home! 9 bedrooms each with a bathroom. Primo beds and pillows. All new couches. Well stocked with games and DVDs. Tv's everywhere. Plenty of amenities. I highly recommend this vacation home. Short walk to the beach and located on a child friendly street. Loved the hot tub too!!!"
