An amazing stay at Maestrale
"Our family of six had a great vacation in the Outer Banks. This was our first visit; the third for our daughter's family. (Renting in Frisco in prior years.) Glen's home was perfect for us! The location was great: a very quiet street. Although the property felt secluded, it was very close to shops, restaurants and even a gas station! The home is clean with nice amenities, obviously well-cared for. Views from the decks were wonderful. We watched an amazing lightning storm over the ocean one evening and enjoyed star-gazing most nights. Using the path along the back we visited the sound to watch sunsets. Being an early riser, I watched sunrises from the top deck. What a view! We cooked meals in the well-equipped kitchen and also grilled on the ground level, charcoal BBQ. Beds, chairs, sofas were all very comfortable. The electronics (TVs, DVDs, radio, etc) all functioned properly. Having Wi-Fi access was important to all of us and the connection at Maestrale worked great. We found the ground floor shower, utility sink and garden hose very handy when returning from the beach. A "bonus" was the nice in-ground pool available a couple of minutes away at Kinnakeet Shores. Glen was wonderful to rent from. He always returned emails promptly and his replies were always thoughtful and helpful. A positive experience from start to finish. We are hoping to return in 2016."

"We needed a place to stay for a few days in November while on the Island for personal business. The price cannot be beat. The house is warm & inviting. Loved looking at all of the unique pictures and photos scattered throughout the house. Kitchen was better equipped than many more pricey homes we have rented on the island. Boys enjoyed bike riding around the community. Overall I don't think the value can be beat."

"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."
