  • Getaway holiday

    "Owner very good to work with. Photos true to ad. Beds very comfortable and everything included. Had a wonderful stay and was able to sightsee the area. Only down side was the toaster only did one side!! Would highly recommend this condo and we will return even though it is the second storey. Both my husband and myself have difficulty with stairs."

  • 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!"

  • cute and cosy

    "First of all Manteo is the best place to stay on the OBX. While the other towns have beaches they are more "honky tonk" in atmosphere. Manteo is a real town yet an easy drive to all the attractions. The Loft is in a great location-a short walk to the harborside amenities and totally comfortable. The outside porch provided a pleasant place for evening wine and cheese. We ate in twice and our only criticism was the lack of basic pantry supplies. Salt and pepper were provided but nothing else. Many rentals in our past experiences had oil, a few spices, etc. Enough to make a decent meal without having to pay to outfit a pantry. But we made due and had a wonderful time."

  • Charming....Historic....Just Beautiful!

    ""Picky" is an understatement when it comes to my selection of a rental home for my family! This beautiful historic home won't disappoint even the most discerning renters. It certainly surpassed all my requirements in finding a home away from home! My family rented this "beautiful" historic home set in the heart of Manteo for a summer weekend in June. The house is a block or two away from the Manteo waterfront... boardwalk, shops and restaurants. You can park your car when you arrive and walk and bike anywhere around town. With regard to the house....immaculate and tastefully done. It is cozy and quiet, a decor of period antiques to match the house, and large enough to accommodate your family and friends. Did I mention the back screened porch for morning coffee...or the manicured yard complete with blooming flowers...or maybe the naturally shaded back yard by pecan trees and fresh growing flowerbed herb garden is your taste!!! Even with all this...I believe the most outstanding attribute to this rental home is it's owner Yvonne. Yvonne is the friendliest, most caring rental home owner I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She went above and beyond to make my family's trip to Manteo comfortable and fun! Rent from Yvonne just once and I'm sure you'll be tempted to return. I know I will return....hopefully sooner than later. Enjoy!"
