Perfect Vacation for the 2nd Year at the Surfdancer
"Last year was the first time my family has vacationed at the outer banks in 15 years.. First time renting from an owner and not a real estate. Glen is always available to answer any questions before booking, during your stay and anytime in between. And quick too. Usually within 5 minutes you will have an answer. Won't get that with a real estate agency. We stayed at the Surfdancer last year and this year too.Did not even look for another house. If we return next summer it will be the Surfdancer. The home is very clean( very important) well stocked with beach toys( in case you forget) and rainy day games. The sunset views from the back deck are amazing and very picture worthy. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach via a community boardwalk, so no driving necessary at all. And add a community pool when you don't feel like the ocean is a bonus. Trust my review and all others here and look no further when you looking for a home for your vacation in the outer banks And go to the Orange Blossum Cafe for the "Apple Uglies" Amazing! Glen recommended and he was right!"

"Memories are made where memories are possible. Artists and Anglers is whimsically decorated in a way that invites guests to use their imagination and make some memories. For our family, with six adults and five grandchildren, we imagined pirates.
There is a treasure chest in the house and that was just the start. The loft is perfectly suited to become a pirate ship. Add a few “pirate-themed” items from a party store before leaving home and the stage was set for high seas hijinks.
The Avon Luau (at Koru Beach Klub – Tue. evening) has a pirate theme – with the word “luau” apparently thrown in to justify the leis passed out as guests enter. It’s great fun for kids and the band (although musically average at best) stays in character throughout the evening, interacting with kids on a constant basis.
We made our own treasure hunt, including a “found” bottle on the beach with a note and clues. Grandkids dug up the “treasure” (our own chest, not Claire’s), and the fun continued all week.
The centerpiece of all this mirth and mayhem was Artists and Anglers. It is roomy, well cared for, close to the beach, has stunning views – everything you read about from other guests. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped and deserves special mention.
The owner (Claire) is exceptionally and efficiently responsive to any concerns or questions. There shouldn’t be many. Come prepared for fun and leave, as we did, with a treasure chest filled with memories. (Again, ours not Claire’s.)"

"This house is beautiful and is exactly as described. we had 9 adults and 4 children and plenty of room for everyone. Kudos to the cleaning company. It's the first time my mother didn't clean when we arrived. It has everything you would want. You will not be disappointed. Big thanks to Kristin and family."

"The Papillon is a wonderful home!!! The house comes with everything you'd need to make it feel like a home away from home. I loved being able to look out from the third deck and seeing the ocean. There were plenty of shops that were within walking distance, along with a DQ right across the street which was great for those hot summer nights. If you are looking for an awesome getaway then you should definitely choose this house! Thank you Bill and Angie!!"
