"My family had such a wonderful stay. Very spacious living area with large windows to enjoy all the views. Rooms were good size with comfortable beds. Can't forget the decks. If we weren't at the beach we were on the decks taking the views and sounds of Rodanthe. Perfect location! We are looking forward to a return stay."

"We had our family reunion at Families are Forever and absolutely loved our stay here. Everything from boogie boards to beach chairs to lots of deck seating to enjoy the breeze made our time there enjoyable! Families are Forever is well equipped with basic kitchen items and even spices to use - that was really helpful when cooking! The rooms are beautifully decorated. The hammock on the first floor and the chair hammock on the second floor are also nice in the evening. The hot tub and pool are great for the kids or the teens. We especially appreciated the outside stairs going from the ground to the top floor. The porch off of the kitchen was perfect for morning breakfasts to watch the sunrise. It takes about 3.5 minutes to walk to the beach - a boardwalk is far from the end of the driveway. We have actually visited a couple of times -- in November and in June - and both seasons are unique for a trip to Hatteras. The water in June is perfectly refreshing! We also enjoyed our time in November - good weather and still beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the sound. You can see the sound and the ocean from the top deck of Families are Forever! We will surely stay at Families are Forever again! Thank you so much for a beautiful home and wonderful vacation!"

So nice to spend time with family. Beach was great fun lots of shells. Froggy Dog had great steamed shrimp. All in all the trip was great from the beginning. Really fun birthday trip for my wife."

"I just returned from a week at Birdsong. We have been renting a house for our yearly summer vacation for more than 10 years. This is one of the best houses yet! You can tell the owners care a lot about your comfort. The location is so peaceful and quiet, perfect for getting away from it all. The view from the back deck is so serene. The first morning we watched a mother deer and her baby swim across the canal. The second day the little fawn was just a few steps from the front door! The house is the quietest of all the houses we've stayed in. My family does deep sea fishing, early morning surf sessions, and night time flounder gigging which means people are scurrying about at odd hours. No one was disturbed. The house is so well built that you don't hear anything! No one in our party actually needs the elevator, but it does come in handy in the loading and unloading of the kitchen. The owners have equipped it with anything you might want. If you need something, look around, it's sure to be there! We usually go to a different house each year just to experience something new, but this house made me want to come back!"
