"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."

"Sadly, this is the first time we ventured South of Nags Head, and we loved it. The house itself is simple, but very comfortable. Well equipped for cooking and relaxing, we had 6 adults in the house and plenty of room. Beach access is close by, from start to finish, we were sitting on the beach within 5 minutes. The beach itself was never crowded, clean and as an added bonus for us, we had a huge sandbar with a lazy river almost everyday, it was a blast. Plenty of close by sight seeing, food lion is crazy, but well staffed and well stocked. Fresh seafood everywhere, went to two places close to the house and both were great. Nothing bad to say about this rental, the owners were easy to work with, house is great for the price. By this time next year we may be residents of Avon!"

"Handily managed our 12-person extended-family vacation. Highlights: very-well-equipped kitchen; across-the-street beach access; fun pool, extensive upper-story deck views; shaded second-floor deck and swing; spacious, comfortable, and accommodating great room; slate-top pool table game room; nicely appointed bedrooms; walking-distance access to a Food Lion grocery and other stores; convenient access to the Ocracoke ferry and the Hatteras lighthouse; and safe, flat streets for biking, jogging, or walking. Our party ranged in age from five to eighty-eight; all enjoyed Virginia Dare."

"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!!"
