Recent Manteo property reviews

  • Lovely

    "We really enjoyed our stay at the loft. It had everything we needed and much more than we expected. The kitchen is fully stocked and the rooms were very cozy, with lovely quilts and down comforters. I am so glad we stayed on the island because it was peaceful and there were restaurants and shops in walking distance. Sharon was so helpful with the planning of the trip and I would absolutely recommend this lovely loft and plan on coming back!"

  • Lovely Cottage

    "The cottage is so charming and well appointed--you must stay here! If you're familiar with Roanoke Island, as we are, you'll know that the cottage is in a primo location for walking to all the activities in Manteo: restaurants, shopping, Festival Park, etc. Our family of three (and our dogs) were quite happy here, and we appreciated the owner's help and guidance. We'll be back!"

  • Enjoyed our stay

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was perfect for our family of 4. The kids each had their own sleeping space on the second level. The condo was comfortable and well maintained. Brian was great to work with. I would highly recommend staying here. We also had a fishing charter from the marina which was great!"

  • Delightful headquarters for Outer Banks Vacation! Highly recommend this one!

    "We are veteran VRBO'ers, and could not have been happier with the choice of the Midgett House as HQ for our first OBX experience. The house is much larger than it looks, with very comfortable cottage furnishings and decor. We felt 'at home' immediately, as did our 4 legged traveling companion (8 y/o pointer). The porch was a favorite spot for all of us, but we equally enjoyed afternoons in the lovely garden. We also spread out all of our maps, touristy brochures, laptop, etc. on the spacious dining room table and desk, and never felt cramped. The location was absolutely ideal---a quick walk 'downtown,' and although we had some concern before arriving about being 'on a main street,' I can testify that Manteo in full swing is not even close to my home during school traffic. Just NO street noise or annoyance! We enjoyed many bike rides exploring the lovely community. Spent time at the Elizabethan Gardens, Aquarium, and ice cream shops. Midgett/Manteo suited us far better as a home base than any of the OBX rentals - they are not remotely inviting compared to the Midgett House and Manteo charm. We are encouraging all of our friends to sample the house, the cottage, or the loft. Also, consider taking all three for a family reunion, girls weekend, or other gathering. The three are 'one' delightful offering. Thank you, Sharon, from all of us for the great stay."
