Recent Hatteras Island property reviews

  • So close to the beach

    "I loved staying at the A-Frame apartments. It was so close to the beach. I surfed every morning and when the wind came up, I walked across the street and went kiteboarding. Simple place that was exactly what I was looking for."

  • Best of the Best!

    "Hello, my name is Vince and I am currently on my last night in your wonderful beach house, Sounds Terrific! Since I was a baby my parents brought me to the Outer Banks twice a year. We started out camping in a pop up at Pea Island Resort before it became what it is named now. Eventually we outgrew that and my parents began renting homes from Surf or Sound. These were the greatest memories of my childhood, despite all of the other places my parents took me around the country. When I became an adult with a family of my own I continued to come out here and rent homes from Surf or Sound twice a year. Now that I am nearly 37 and have teenagers of my own this is still every bit of my heaven as it was when I was a young child. I come once a year with my family and once a year with other couples that have never gotten to experience the Outer Banks. We are on the latter of two trips currently, but planning a Thanksgiving family trip for this November. I have stayed in so many of the homes but this is the first time I have ever stayed sound side. I have to say out of all the homes that I have stayed in your home is the best one yet hands down. It is beautiful, comfy, and has everything you could need and more. For the first time I am not interested in staying at another home and cannot wait to come back and stay here again!"

  • Perfect house -- Perfect location -- Gorgeous view!

    "Location, location, location -- it was fantastic! We were not familiar with the Outer Banks -- once we spent a few days there, we realized what a fantastic location this is to be right on the Sound and just a short walk to the non-crowded beach. The house is the best we've ever stayed in. It's clean and well maintained -- all of it -- kitchen, bathrooms, carpeting, furniture. It's bright and open, just like the pictures. Loved the large, well stocked kitchen. Keith leaves good instructions and has the many light switches labeled. The outside shower (so clean -- not one spider or bug) and foot washes were perfect when coming back from the beach or the Sound. But the best part was the gorgeous view of the Pamlico Sound! We always seemed to sit in front of the windows, looking at the Sound when eating a quick breakfast, reading, or playing games. Also loved having kayaks that we could easily put in the water and head out on the Sound. Made the rookie mistake of waving to my daughter on shore and tipped it over.....in went my husband and our binoculars too. Sure made for some great laughs. We created many memories at this house. Our 3 teenage daughters want to go back again next year to this same house."
