"Absolutely wonderful week! The location is quiet, on a sandy ridge in pine woods. The beach is wonderful for splashing, on days when the ocean is too windy the sound is much more pleasant to play in. The cottage is very well appointed with comfortable beds, the best rental kitchen we've ever cooked in, and easy access to the banks without having to fight the crowds in Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills. You can bike anywhere in Manteo, so you could conceivable stay for a week and never start the car up! We've rented various cottages in various locations, and this one sits on top of our list as the best rental experience we've ever had."

"My sisters and I arrived at the condo for our annual sister trip traveling from Garner & Goldsboro, NC and Houston TX. The home was immaculate, orderly and comfortable. We loved, loved, loved "Stripers" restaurant - just a hop, skip and jump away. We experienced some inclement weather on our first day- it was a bit windy/rainy;however because of the comforts of the home- we were able to stay indoors for some girl time and just enjoy a few movies and reading. I look forward to visiting Manteo again and would definitely request this condo again!"

"My family of 4 (hubby, kids 4 &6 yrs, and I) stayed at this rental for a week in July. It was such a fantastic deal. Here are the pros:
*LOTS of space. We originally had planned for some relatives to travel with us, but they flaked out on us so it was just us four. We didn't even use the back bedroom with the most beds. I loved that my kids had their own room, beds, TV, and bathroom. (They slept on the double futon and twin bed in the room with the washer and dryer.) Plenty of towels were provided, too.
*Outdoor equipment - We used the beach gear. We kept chairs and umbrellas in our car all week. Bonnie even let us use her personal ice chest cooler. We also used the bikes one day. There are PLENTY of adult bikes to choose from. My son refused to use the bike that fit him best because it was a girl bike. So, we used the tandem and one of the tag alongs. They were a little rusty, and the pedal fell off the tag along twice while riding. It screwed back on, so it wasn't a huge deal though it did scare my daughter.
*Little kitchen - There are plates and utensils and everything except a range. We loved that we could have fruit and toast and such.
*The owner - Bonnie was easy to deal with and very accommodating.
Here are some things you should know when considering the property:
*Location: It is easy to find, and Manteo is a good central location for exploring the OBX. However, this house is on a bumpy dirt road, and the first house you pass on the left looks abandoned. Not pretty. Manteo a different feel than the rest of the OBX. It is NOT a beach town at all, so don't expect that kind of atmosphere.
*Beds - The queen beds in the rental are not that comfortable. (The twin and the futon were fine.) The one we used in the room in which you enter was so soft it sank deeply when you got on it, and it made a lot of noise if you moved at all.
*The washer and dyer are what you expect for being in an inexpensive place. It takes a really long time to do a load; the dryer in particular takes forever to dry towels. So, you got to plan to do your loads with that in mind.
Having said that, I would recommend this rental to anyone who wants to explore the OBX and have a good value place to stay in. Last year we stayed in a budget hotel near the beach. I liked this place better since it had a LOT more room, the washer & dryer, and the beach gear."
