"I was looking for a vacation spot for my family to enjoy spending time together. I found "A Stone's Throw" and I am hooked! We love the privacy, but also love the short walk to the beach & the sound! Let's face it, the sunrise & sunset over the water is calling to all of us! One of my favorite sites is watching the pelicans fly in formation over the ocean! I love sharing a respect for nature with my children & grandchildren! The birds, crabs, and wild horses are all around the area. We even saw a deer in the woods next to the house. The house is amazing & perfect for our family. The top level has a kitchen built to accommodate a big family. We had 11 & could have easily fit more around the table & counter. The sitting room on the top floor was spacious. We loved the top deck because it was safe for the baby to toddle around & perfect for the big & small children to blow bubbles. This level also has a master bedroom with a wonderful bathroom complete with a jacuzzi tub! The king sized bed was perfect for a 3 year old, a 2 year old, & a 1 year old to have a dance party on when a storm came and they couldn't play outside! The middle floor has a comfy sitting room & my husband's beer fridge. We can also squeeze a gallon of juice in there for the babies staying on that level. Three nice bedrooms are on this level & (drum roll please) another jacuzzi tub! One bedroom has it's own private bathroom! The deck on this level holds the glorious hot tub! This deck, unlike the top deck, has stairs to the ground! We used baby gates to keep the kids & dogs in! The bottom floor has a king bed & bunks & another full bathroom. Guess what, another sitting room! I loved being able to just pull the car under the carport & just unloading into the house without dealing with the steps after driving all day! We still were able to enjoy the pool in September. The kids found the toys & had fun playing & learning to swim. We found our paradise on earth & will be returning for at least 2 weeks every year! As we have gotten older, we have found that it gives us more time to relax before facing the drive home. Matt & Sue are the best at making the trip feel heavenly. If you need anything, they are a phone call away. I always spoke with Susan & she will bend over backwards to make your stay wonderful! The deposit is returned quickly & fairly. It is wonderful to meet people who are kind & honest! I feel a friendship has developed between us because of the kindness in their heart! Blessings"

"My wife and I would like to stay that we really enjoyed are stay at the OBX house. The weather wasn't very good but we had a good time. The house was very cozy and clean and well maintained! We caught some crabs and done some fishing down at the private peer. The owners were very nice and real informative, so we would recommend the house to anyone. OBX YOU ROCK!!!!"

"Some friends and I stayed here for an extended weekend to go Bluefin Tuna fishing. The house provided more than enough space for six of us and had everything we needed including oyster shuckers for those fresh oysters right off the boats at Wanchese. We caught a 100lb bluefin that we took right across the street to Sam and Omies who perfectly cooked it for us along with family style fixings (amazing meal). Jeanettes pier and the beach were conviently located right across the street for some sight seeing. This place is perfect, clean, and had the best location the Outer Banks can offer. Thanks for the great stay! We'll definitely be back again."

"Absolutely wonderful week! The location is quiet, on a sandy ridge in pine woods. The beach is wonderful for splashing, on days when the ocean is too windy the sound is much more pleasant to play in. The cottage is very well appointed with comfortable beds, the best rental kitchen we've ever cooked in, and easy access to the banks without having to fight the crowds in Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills. You can bike anywhere in Manteo, so you could conceivable stay for a week and never start the car up! We've rented various cottages in various locations, and this one sits on top of our list as the best rental experience we've ever had."
