"My family stayed in Sound Escape for 2 weeks this summer, over the 4th of July. The house was perfect - there is nothing the house didn't have and was very comfortable. Truly a home away from home feeling. The owner is wonderful! Loved being able to sit outside on the screen porch at night to enjoy a "cold beverage" with the nice breeze coming in and not being eaten by mosquitos! My kids and I both agree that this was the best vacation that we have ever had. Thank you so much for sharing your house!"

"Excellent location for those that want to get away from the over crowded beach areas. House was very clean and spacious. Everything we wanted to cook with was available in the kitchen. Two kayaks were fun to cruise around in on the sound. We LOVED the hot outdoor shower! Very short and easy walk to the beach. We spent mornings and afternoons there with nice break in between at house to relax. We also returned to hunt for crabs and walk along the beach in the evenings. Sunset off the back deck was gorgeous. Great waves to body surf at this beach. Would highly recommend and hope to return!"

"We have spent many summer vacations in the OBX and have never stayed in the same house twice except for Kapt'n Kelly's! This was our 3rd visit in 4 years. It just feels like home!
The views from the top deck are fabulous all day long, but the sunsets are AMAZING!!!
We bring our two dogs and they LOVE to run the decks and watch the shorebirds flying by and diving. There are ducks in the area that the lady next door feeds. We made the mistake of letting the dogs out when they were near (oops)...so then my daughter was fetching a 65 lb German Shorthaired Pointer from 50 yards into the sound and the ducks scattered! LOL
Our teenage girls love the hot tub and the house is big enough we don't even know they are there!
Judy is a fabulous property manager, very attentive to your needs and requests. She represents the owners well.
Can't wait to book our next adventure!"

"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!"
