  • Magical spot

    "We have been vacationing at Seamist for more than 10 years. This is a down to earth and warm beach house. Everything you could need is provided. The crow's nest atop the house provides exceptional views of the sea, sunrises and magnificent sunsets. The night sky is amazing from up there! The two primary bedrooms are perfect and there is a bedroom with 2 twins and a real kids room with 4 bunk beds. If the weather turns there is a well stocked game room below the house with air hockey, foosball and Xbox (bring your own games). Kitchen/dining area are open and extremely bright. The photos on this listing are not deceptive, they are totally accurate. I can not recommend this house enough. It will leave a lasting impression you will not soon forget."

  • Very comfortable house. Well maintained with new furnishing, appliances, decor. We loved it.

    "This house, which is new to VRBO, has the best floor plan of any house I have stayed at in the 15 years I have been visiting OBX. The top floor is open with only an island separating the kitchen from the family room, making it a great, and very comfortable, gathering space. There is also a tower breakfast nook on that level drenched in natural light where I enjoyed reading the paper in the morning. The top floor is also surrounded by decks, so the party can easily flow outside. It has two other common areas: a mid-level den where our young kids watched a movie while the adults visited upstairs, and a ground-floor rec room where the older kids - and some dads - played pool and foosball while watching baseball and playing some basketball just outside. Because the volleyball court is surrounded by trees that drop some leaves that can be a bit pointy, you can't play barefooted. The house is very close to the beach, just a few steps. And it's right in the middle of Duck Village. Duck Landing Lane meets Duck Rd. right at Town Park and the sound side boardwalk where there is an equal number of shops,restaurants, sports rentals, etc. walking south as there is walking north. You cannot get more central in Duck Village. The clubhouse is included with the stay. Most valuable is the fitness room. Not much need for the indoor pool in the summer because the house has a nice pool with equal parts in the shade and sun most of the day. The entire house is well maintained with new furniture, stainless steel appliances, flat screens in the rooms and other unexpected amenities. We will most certainly be back to this house next year."

  • Marvelous Family Vacation at Footprints"

    "Our family spent the week of July 19, 2014 for our annual summer, family vacation at "Footprints". What a marvelous place to have a grand family vacation. The home is simply spectacular and well appointed. We had 6 adults and 6 kids and never felt crowed whatsoever. The upper level, open concept living/eating/kitchen area was just perfect. It was only a short walk to the beach (less than 5 minutes) and the home had a beautiful swimming pool in the backyard as well as a nice hot tub on the first deck. The community was safe and secure, clean and well maintained. Everyone had a wonderful time. If you are looking for a "rowdy" vacation spot, look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a marvelous spacious home, safe, secure, and private for spending a family-oriented vacation, don't look anywhere else. Footprints met and exceeded our expectations. On a side note, the driveway was certainly large enough for our 6 cars and no parking problems whatsoever. All of the pictures that are posted on this site accurately portray the Footprints" home."

  • Fantastic House!

    "Breakers was just perfect for our family of 17! Plenty of room for us all to spread out, and a great room perfect for gathering! This house is meticulously maintained and seems brand new! Great little touches and details, and beautifully decorated! We loved the huge backyard and volleyball court! Just around the corner from the community playground (where we spent a lot of time with the little ones) and beach access. Also used the indoor pool and fitness center (almost) every day! Four Seasons is so convenient to the village of Duck - we did lots of walking and bikeriding into "town." We'll be back!!!"
