Perfect Beach Getaway for Our Family
"I should have known that with previous reviews as Leaping Porpoise has, we were in for a treat but even those reviews couldn't prepare us for our discovery as to how awesome this house turned out to be for our family. We were 6 adults and two toddlers and there was nothing we needed that this house did not have. From all the beach equipment we could ever hope to amass on our own to the awesome shaded sandpit my toddler boys loved, this house is a dream for families with young kids. Adults enjoyed the short 5 minute walk to the beach, the luxurious, bubbly hot tub we spent a starry evening in and all the well taken care of amenities the inside of the house had to offer. The only thing I regret is not discovering the corn hole game until the last day. Oh the tournaments we could have had! Like others, I slightly hesitate to give a glowing review because I so want to return next summer and don't want it to be booked up! Thanks, Barbara and Chuck for your hospitality and sharing with our family this little piece of OBX haven."

"Just spent a great weekend at Freebird! The house was fantastic, very clean and modern décor! The hot tub was a twice a day event and the walk to the beach was easy even for an 8 year old! The owner was very helpful helping me get my last minute weekend organized! I am hoping to get down again this winter!"

"I spent a wonderful week at Ron's lovely casa beginning on Labor Day weekend 2014. The apartment is larger than it looks in the pictures and is charmingly decorated. The week was part holiday and part writing retreat for me and the large private backyard was a perfect location for the latter purpose. It was also purr-fect for my two older cats that I brought with me and who spent every moment they could lounging on the patio.
Ron met me on arrival and provided lots of helpful information about the area (it was my first trip to the Outer Banks) as well as a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge to welcome me to the beach. :) Even though he lives upstairs, you would never know he's there unless you need him for something.
The location is great: close to shopping, dining, the Wright Brothers Memorial, and just a 3-minute drive to the Kitty Hawk beach (with plenty of free parking available). Tip: Head about 20 minutes south to Coquina beach, my favorite of all the ones I visited during my stay.
I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the OBX!
P.S. I tried to submit this review right after my trip and VRBO wouldn't accept it. Not sure what the problem was but wanted to get it in as people are now booking for the 2015 season."
