"Great week at OBX. The house was amazing. Only issues : mattresses were squeaky, outside shower was gross/dog hair everywhere; outdoor hoses did not have sprayers and bikes needed chain locks. the Shrouts."

"We drove from VT for Thanksgiving with our entire family. Right from the first e-mail Ernie was a pleasure to deal with. We loved the location, the hot tub, the two fridges, the two big tables and the layout of the bedrooms. We took a short walk to the beach and took a great family photo. We also were a short ride from the part of the beach that is open to vehicles. My husband got an amazing photo of the wild horses which is now hanging on a canvas in our dining room. Ernie mentioned before we arrived the hot tub may not be working, but he would try to get it going before our arrival. Ernie worked really hard to get it running perfectly. He knew we really wanted to use it during our stay.
Pebble Beach is a great beach rental, very large house, and the basement had great game tables for the young and old AND it was a great price."

"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."

"I rented this fantastic home so that my extended family could celebrate the many "holidays" that occur during the month of May. Our vacation started on Mothers' Day and was soon followed by my mom's 74th birthday. My parents' 50th anniversary and my father's birthday are May 22nd and May 25th respectively.
Our group included family members from Georgia, NC (Goldsboro), DC and Maryland. I arrived with my mother, my 92-year-old grandmother, and two 2.5-year-olds (grandniece and granddaughter). My father, uncle, 3 brothers, sister, sister-in-law, 3 additional nieces and a nephew (all pre-teen), and an older family friend arrived later in the week.
The house was perfect for our group. Each bedroom having a private bath was awesome! The amenities were great, from the pool table to the hammock on the deck to the big-screen TVs. The hot tub, pool and grills were all given proper workouts. The stairs and the mini-sized grills were a little challenging - but any complaints were tempered by the excellence of everything else. Having two refrigerators was extremely helpful.
Getting to the beach from the house was a short walk and well worth it. The nearby shopping options came in very handy considering our frequent trips. I will (and already have) recommend this property and Elan Vacations to everyone I know. Thank you so much for the role you played in making wonderful memories for my family."
