"Our latest stay in the Outer Banks was great and the Turtle Shell made the stay. The location of the house is second to none. The Turtle Shell is just minutes from multiple grocery stores, restaurants and all of the shopping you need. The access to the beach is amazing. Just a short walk and your toes are in the sand. Also the beach access has a road that runs right into the sand. This made it very easy to transport chairs, umbrellas and other beach supplies so you don't have to carry them if you don't want to. The house itself was spectacular. It was fully furnished and had everything you would find in your own home. The bedrooms were comfortable and the living room spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you need to cook a full meal. The porch was the best part, the house is quiet so in the evenings the upstairs porch is the place to be. The owners were so easy to deal with. They were prompt responding when we had questions and were extremely easy to communicate with. I would recommend the Turtle Shell to anyone who wants a great house in a great location. i will definitely stay at the Turtle Shell again!"

"This was our second time at Kill Devil Rum, and we're coming back next year. This home, not house, is just perfectly wonderful. Everything you could ever need or want to make a memorable OBX vacation can be found here. Location to beach, activities, food stores, etc. couldn't be better. The pool is fabulous after a hot day on the beach or for a swim after dinner. Being able to take our pets is an added plus. We did take a canopy tent which we set up to provide some shade for them in the back yard. Worked perfectly! We love coming to the OBX and staying at Kill Devil Rum!"

"We just returned from one of our best "beach vacations" vacations to date. I enjoyed napping a couple afternoons in the plush reclining, love seat. The "grandparents first floor" as we called it, was very comfortable and the rest of the family had plenty of room to enjoy in the upper levels of "The Sunsetter" as well. Oddly enough, we spent much of our time in the Saltwater Pool than at the Beach! Everyone had a Blast. My daughter made a couple inquiries, via e-mail, to "John" and he quickly responded. This place is conveniently located, allowing us to get around to many of the Great things that OBX offers."

"This house, the sound crab, is excellent!! all the amenities & conveniences R there, very clean, comfortable beds, kitchen well appointed & functioning. The air conditioning was cold & functioning. Very safe neighborhood, great to ride bikes around on the bike path. MP 7, close to OXB brew pub, & Food Lion. The sunset & sunrise views are spectacular!!! the sky from the deck was the highlight of the trip. Even when cloudy or threat of rain, the clouds & skies are incredible. Lots of wildlife right outside the door in the sound."
