    "Gerry's Gem was a perfect pick for our family.Close to the beach (5 min walk),a peaceful pond right across the driveway,filled with Bass & turtles.My boyfriend's favorite part was being able to walk out of the driveway & fish the pond.We fed the turtles everyday.The house is clean,well maintained & beautiful.6 of us plus our dogs had plenty of space.AC worked great.Kitchen has pretty much everything you need to cook & serve.Highly recommend staying here.Hope to visit Gerry's Gem again soon."

  • Best Family Vacation Ever!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our four families vacationing together at Ocean Blue. We each had our own suite, and even the young kids had their own room. The pool table was a great gathering place for the adults at night. The biggest decision all week was whether to hit the beach first, or swim in the pool, followed by a relaxing soak in the hot tub. The third floor deck was by-far the best place to be at any given time! Our 3 dogs loved their first vacation at the beach, too. The house is well maintained, spacious, clean and nicely decorated. All of our accommodations were met. We hope to be able to do this again soon. It was truly the Best family vacation we have ever had! Thank you so much for all of the memories!!!"

  • Amazing place

    "We just got back from having a great vacation. The house was wonderful. We had a big group with a mix of family and friends which can sometimes be disastrous, but it work out great. Plenty of room for everyone to do your own thing. One couple brought down their boat and they did a lot of fishing all week. Even though we only had 3 days of sun on this vacation everyone had a great time. The pool was a lifesaver with the kids since the ocean was way to rough to swim in. Most of the people who came had never been on the 4x4 beach and they all had a blast driving on the beach. Remember let the air out of your tires. We did a lot of kayaking and went for a lot of walks to see the horses. They are everywhere so lots of good photo ops. It is neat to be that close to the beach and yet so secluded. If I had any advice to anyone planning on staying on the 4x4 beach it would be to bring a small air compressor with you it takes forever to fill your tires at the ones at the gas stations and on check out day you will be waiting in line. It took us about 45 mins to get our tires filled. Next year we are taking our own. All in all just an awesome time. Thanks Lisa for sharing your wonderful home."

  • This must be THE place!!!

    "Just got back from a vacation at this residence. It was fantastic. Beautiful scenes out of every window. If you have a large family and want to get them together for a visit and rest and fun, this is the place to be. I loved every minute of it! Looking forward to going back to the Outer Banks again someday."
