Perfect Family Getaway
"Virginia Dare was the perfect house for our family vacation! There was something for everyone. We all enjoyed the pool, others kicked back in the hot tub, and I kept finding my wife in the swing on the porch. Beach access was so convenient. Many of our group enjoyed their first ever fire on the beach. I would definitely recommend this home for a great and memorable vacation to the Outer Banks."

"Great location! Quiet residential section right by the sound. Updates abound! From the nice fluffy towels, pretty wood floors, soft linens, electronics galore,....the list goes on. Kayaks are great fun in the sound. We managed to see deer on the bank further north while we were kayaking one day. About as serene an experience you can have. We had 3 girls, age 8, 9 & 10 with us and they loved the place. Nice to be able to get them into bed at night in their own room with a movie (plenty of selections) playing to ease them into sleep. The game room downstairs was fun but only after we cleared out all of the cobwebs and swept up a few dead bugs. Musty down there. A few minor hiccups: lock code didn't work at check-in so we had to contact owner to reset remotely which took a good 30 minutes to accomplish. Of course, that gave us a little time to check out the sound so not a biggie. 2 of the 4 burners on the stove were non-functioning so we had to juggle a bit to cook for 7 people each night. There were also a few cobwebs inside the house itself. We had window unit AC for the first 2-3 days which was a downer. Owner apologized for that since the guys who were supposed to install their whole house central AC unit came up sick and weren't able to get it done in time. Out of her control and kudos for getting them in on a memorial day holiday to actually install it. Very detailed instructions on everything were laid out nicely. Since my father and I were the only ones who actually read them, it was funny to watch everyone else try to figure out how to turn on the living room ceiling fan (hint: try the white remote-lol). Plenty of extras to take to the beach including 4 chairs, lifeguard style umbrella, Frisbees, sand toys, bocce ball, plus a wheeled cart to use to roll all that stuff over the dune.
Since our crew is pretty laid back, we were able to overlook the "hiccups" that I listed earlier and have a truly wonderful vacation. I could see where someone who...say resides north of the Mason-Dixon line, might not be able to overlook those hiccups.
Overall, a great vacation in a nice property. Would definitely do it again and recommend to my friends & family."

"Maestrale is a nice house with great views and good location! The beach on the Pamlico Sound was good for kiteboarding and windsurfing plus it was a reasonable walk to the ocean. I would walk my rigged sail over and my wife would drive the board and her kitesurf gear to the easy parking of ramp 38. Good SUP surfing too!
There are plenty of great shops for renting gear and plenty of good restaurants in Avon!
Glen, the owner, is professional and quick to respond to inquiries.
We would recommend this house to families and water sports enthusiasts!"
