  • 1st Time in Outer Banks

    "This was our first vacation to the Outer Banks. We were very pleased with the Blue Fin. We traveled with six adults, four children 2 and under and one dog. There was plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the home. The kitchen was well equipped and even provided kitchen towels and paper towels. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The only suggestion would be for the playground area to either be sand or grass. There were too many rocks and plants for the children to play outside. The children did enjoy the swing set, pool, and porch swing. The first day we walked to the beach which was about a mile walk. The rest of the time we took the shuttle which was much more enjoyable. The gated community is great and we enjoyed using the community indoor and outdoor pools as well. We also enjoyed the short walk to Duck. Of course the Duck donuts were great! We were not prepared for the four hours that it took us to go the last twenty miles to the house in bumper to bumper traffic. Would certainly recommend this home and community."

  • Family vacation

    "The home is very well maintained and accurately described. Bedrooms accommodate 3 families with ease. There are plenty of games and books for rainy days. Thankfully it is a short walk to either side of the island as well as the private beach. Getting in the car to travel is a challenge. Having experienced Cape Cod traffic, this was much more congested. An expected 5 hour drive from D.C. on Saturday morning took 10 hours. We were told after the fact that many people come a day early and stay in a hotel and leave the day before checkout. I found that idea very costly. So we left at 6 a.m. on Saturday. Traveling on the island is easier but expect it to be 'city traffic'. We recommend Corolla and taking in the Lost Colony performance as well as kayaking. etc. There was plenty for everyone to do. The grill is small so cooking for a crowd is a challenge. My one complaint was with the booking agency, Elan. Once I expressed interest in renting, I received phone calls before 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. asking if I had decided. One agent became very rude when I asked about an unclear charge on the contract. Granted we live in a different time zone but I would think a professional agency would be used to that. I was told someone else wanted the week we had chosen and that was the reason for the pressure. Nonetheless it left me with a negative impression of the agency and I will avoid them in the future. But if you can overcome that hurdle, it is a nice spot for a family gathering."

  • Fantastic stay at "Wilkom"

    "My first trip to OBX and what a great property this is!! Kitchen and baths totally renovated and updated, new carpet throughout home, very roomy with lots of areas to spread out. Kitchen extremely well-equipped with everything you could possibly need. We cooked in every night except one night out at Blue Point restaurant (best she-crab soup and crab cakes!) This home is in a very nice neighborhood. Many decks on the home to enjoy breezes off the ocean or watch wildlife in the adjoining wooded area(we saw a mother and baby deer one morning). Very short walk to nice beach area. Short drive to great shops and restaurants in Duck. Will definitely return to this lovely home!! Also the owners are so very easy to work with!"

  • Another Great Week at Fowl Play

    "2nd Thanksgiving Week at Fowl Play. We were very pleased to find the home as clean and well maintained as the previous year. We gave the rental 5+ in 2013. With the excellent upkeep of home plus the addition of kitchen, cooking supplies(which now makes it a very well appointed supplied kitchen) we have to give our 2014 experience a 5++"
