  • True Beach House ~ Comfy Interior ~ Lush Lot ~ Huge Pool ~ Perfect Week :D

    "Listing description accurate - Oceanfront on a beautiful dune, short path to the beach, gorgeous views from decks and Cathedral windows. Photos reflect home's appearance and amenities - pool is huge by OBX standards, deck landscaped with gorgeous dark green blooming shrubs and bushes, very zen. Lot has more trees and greenery than any we've seen, beautiful. Robert the Caretaker did an exceptional job, the house was spic n span. We arrived early, and he made us feel welcome, let us know when the house would be ready. Great communication throughout our stay :) George the Owner answered all of our questions - we were at complete ease that any concerns would be addressed, though we had none during our entire week. I would enthusiastically recommend this property, though the layout might be slightly more challenging for those with toddlers or elderly guests. Its an older layout, which was perfect for our clan of 20 to 50 yr olds and an old beach doggy. For activities, we bring our own beach volleyball net, (swimmers, volleyball and soccer players in our group) for hours of great exercise and fun. We even played pool volleyball in the huge pool, beautifully lit at night. Soccer juggling and frisbee on the beach. Boogie boarding whenever possible. Sand sculpture kept everyone smiling. Shopping @ our favorite Surf Shops for hoodies, bikinis and boardshorts @ DVO outfitters (3 min drive South) or REAL Watersports (1 min drive South) or Avon Surf Shop (20 min drive). We try to buy from local small businesses - Austin's Seafood (super-fresh daily catch - our seared tuna on the grill deserved Michelin stars :) Waves Grocery and Market is very cool and open til' midnight! We got to see a live Reggae Band at the super cool REAL music venue behind their store. - fantastic for all ages, and just a superb location for the sunset. We love Hatteras Island because of its still a Beach Town. George's Home reflects this in a beautifully laid back, but well-appointed way. Its architecture and driftwood tones respect and complement the environment it is built upon (as opposed to some of the gaudy behemoths plunked down on oceanfront lots). Its a well-loved, lived-in home, full of personal touches, a family curated art selection (loved the Hatteras Needlepoint series!), family photos - i love that you can tell Surfers Live Here! 16 years of OBX house rentals, and we give this House, its Caretaker and Owner an enthusiastic A+"

  • Dodged Hurricane Arthur

    "Great location and owners where great, even through the Hurricane! We had booked the house for 2 weeks, arrived on Sunday June 29th and home was very clean and all the cooking plates you would need, especially since we were there for an extended period. Along came Arthur and mandatory evacuation on Thursday July 3rd, so we got lucky and found an Hotel in Plymouth. The owners called the next day and said they had ridden the storm out with 96 mph winds, their house which in near our rental, neither had lost power or sustained any damage, for us to come back as soon as we were able to get back onto Hatteras Island. We got back on island Sat night, July 5th, and owners had begun to clean out sound water from area including under the house. They were extremely accommodating and apologetic we had to leave and come back! Bottom line, you cannot go wrong with renting this house and from the owners, they are great! The location is about a 5 minute walk to beach and a beach chairs, bogie boards and a cart is provided. The screen porch and crows nest are awesome! Just ask the owners for best places to eat or buy local seafood! Couldn't ask for better treatment from property owners to Dare County officials and NC DOT who rocked to get the Hatteras Island back open so quickly after a Hurricane Cat 2 passing through. We will be back!"

  • Great spot for families and experienced kiteboarders

    "Nice home. Perfect spot. The kiteboarding launch is a little mucky without much setup area. You will need to be proficient at drift launches if you ride alone or you will wreck your kite on the reeds. A grass launch or large dock for staging would be a nice addition"

  • WONDERFUL OBX WEEKEND!

    "We had a great time at Dancing Gull. It's a great house and very comfortable. All the amenities are exactly as described and the house was very clean and inviting. The location was great and the owner was a pleasure to work with. We could not have asked for a better OBX retreat!! We will definitely be staying at this house again. Thank you so much!!"
