"My wife and I were very satisfied to find such a well-appointed house close to the beach yet not far from stores and local attractions. It met all our needs -- roomy, clean, and well-maintained. The people who came to service the pool and/or check on maintenance were especially friendly and helpful, a reflection of the local community. The owners were very hospitable and pleasant. One of the best vacation rentals we've found in our experience."

"As usual, our vacation at "Wish you were here" was fabulous. The house is immaculate, very we'll equipped, and the "perfect" location! My favorite is the pool & hot tub with mini-fridge on pool deck. We also enjoyed pool basketball and the bicycles. Julie, the owner called the first evening to make sure that everything was okay. A very nice touch!!"

"Our family had a wonderful stay at this charming cottage. We all felt so comfortable here, and we couldn't have had a nicer stay anywhere else I'm sure of it! The cottage was well appointed with all the comforts of home. We loved the privacy, and the private pathway to the beach on the sound. We enjoyed spending time on the private island across the way, fishing off the kayaks, taking the bikes into downtown Manteo one day, and of course the proximity to The Lost Colony was a treat. One evening our family took flashlights and made our way down to the private beach on the sound where we sat and stared up at the stars and listened to the fish jumping in the water. It was so peaceful, and so nice that it was a private space just for us. We love the Outer Banks and we are used to driving around to do things, so taking a drive over to the bridge to the ocean beach was no trouble. The cottage is in close proximity to the fishing centers, the historic landmarks such as Jockeys Ridge and Wright Brothers Memorial, as well as the beach. We look forward to going back to this lovely cottage in the future."

"We had a wonderful week at the Southern Pirate. Everything was pretty much as promised so there weren't any awful surprises. Aside from the beach and ocean, we most enjoyed the porches and feeding the turtles. With a group of 6 adults and three children, we managed not to be on top of each other all the time!
When you rent toward the end of summer, it isn't unusual to find things in a bit of disarray. The housekeeping staff was probably getting a bit fatigued and it showed. Still, we made special family memories and would return.
Many thanks to Eric for all the pre-trip help."
