The rental was very close to the ocean which was very nice.
"You have to be able to do flights of stairs at this rental. This was not a problem for our family. It was nice to have a one car garage to pull in. Ocean is just across the street and the pool at the complex was nice. The communication with the owner was very nice and made super simple to check in and out. The cleanliness of the rental was fair. Was not horrible. . Just small things such as dirty windows (front door was covered with hand prints) however this may have been overlooked as the blind is down at most times. The kitchen table could use a good scrubbing . . The lazy Susan on the table had crumbs all over it. Something very nice is many things are available for use if you forget your own. You would be surprised at what they have thought of. The wifi reception was horrible. Half of the time you either could not connect or it was so slow it was not worth it. Washer and dryer made it very nice to do all of our laundry up before we returned home. Attended a few nice restaurants in the area. Super long drive for us but worth it."

"Excellent two week vacation at Edgewater! Great location for inbound traveling (no getting stuck on 12 to get to Duck or Corolla!!). Maritime forest is soooo relaxing and shady for those very hot OBX days. Residential neighborhood off the beaten path is perfect for running and biking. Paddleboarding and kayaking from the dock was so easy; and leaving them on the dock for two weeks was key. Caught over a dozen blue crabs from the dock and enjoyed crab mac & cheese!
The house itself is deceivingly large. It is really spread out and offers plenty of "quiet" space for those times when you need it. There was only five of us so we didn't have a huge need for the guest house or the lofts, but it was fun to explore and could see how multiple families or generations could take advantage of all the room. Furniture was nice, kitchen had up-to-date appliances (only negative is no filtered water - we had to buy a TON of gallons). Full cable, surround sound and house speakers (nice for connecting Pandora or an iPod), and wife - were all great perks.
Overall: can't beat it! Would love to return for THREE weeks next year!"

"This was our second stay at "SandyToes." The house is in a great location near the quiet and beautiful beach in Kitty Hawk. It is clean and well maintained by a wonderful couple. We were dismayed to see a For Sale sign on the property and were informed that the cottage has just been sold. We hope the new owners will continue to keep the cottage well furbished and stocked like it is now and will include the option to rent linens if needed. It is a such a wonderful feeling to know that when you travel a long distance you don't have to be scrambling for extras to bring with you for the week. Having laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, dishes, spices, etc stocked there is such a nice luxury. We had a full house this time as our nieces and a young great niece joined us. The sleep sofa was comfortable and having the high chair and potty seat for the young one worked out great. We love the screened in porch and the outside shower. If the new owners decide to put in an outdoor pool it will be heaven. There are many shopping areas and restaurants nearby and we loved the Black Pelican for dinner and Michelle's for breakfast. The rental process has always been easy and we hope it will continue to be with the new owners. We would love to return again someday."

"We loved staying at this cottage! It was clean and had plenty of room for us, which was 4 adults and two children. The kitchen is new with granite counter tops and all the appliances and cooking supplies you need. This was the first cottage we stayed in that supplied linens, which were of nice quality and a great convenience! There was plenty of beach supplies for us to use like beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and a cooler. Thank goodness for the beach cart to carry it all down to the beach! There is a half block walk to the stop sign, then a straight walk to the beach. It was an easy walk for my 5 year old granddaughter. We would have coffee on the covered front porch in the mornings and sit out on the back deck in the afternoons looking at the beach and listening to the waves. So relaxing! On the first day the owner called to make sure we were settled in ok and made sure we knew to call if we needed anything. They left a book with instructions on working the TV/DVR, trash pick up, etc. and a bottle of champaigne with a thank you note! I see someone complained about the double bed and my son and his wife agree and said it does not sleep well. The other beds were fine. We come to the OBX every year and this is the best cottage we have stayed in yet! Great value! Thank you!!!"
