"We could not be more satisfied with our stay at Sandmann! The house is beautiful and so tastefully decorated. It has everything you could possibly need including a fully stocked kitchen, beach chairs, toys, etc. The crows nest was so relaxing for morning coffee, or girl time once the kids were in bed, and we saw Dolphins within an hour of arriving. The house is close enough to everything, but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. (Only about 5 mins from Outlets, and 6-7 mins from grocery) Ron was just a text away with any questions we had and was excellent to work with. The pride they take in their home is quite obvious. We hated to leave, but can't wait to go back!"

"This is the third time my husband and I have stayed at the Turtle Shell, and we were delighted to find that it was every bit as enjoyable as every previous time we've stayed. We loved the peacefulness and light of the house, the comfortable furniture and bed, and how relaxed we were while there. It's so quiet at night, and we loved walking to the beach to put our feet in the foam for awhile. We also found this location accessible to events we wanted to attend, in particular the Nags Head Dolphin watch at Kitty Hawk Kites, which I would recommend to any renter. We also had the pleasure of visiting the nearby town of Duck and also seeing the wild horses through Corolla Outback Adventures. One of the other convenient and close things to do is the Bodie Island light house--there's a spectacular view from the top!
This is now our third time dealing with Debra to rent the property, and I can't say enough about her professionalism and her willingness to make a stay at the Turtle Shell as amazing as possible for every guest. She's very prompt with replies, positive, and helpful in terms of her rates-the Shell is a great value! This property is also immaculate every time we come to stay, and she provides everything a guest could possibly need for a stay there. My husband and I especially appreciated the DVD player, board games and reading material that's provided--there's even a 2015 Summer Fun guide to peruse when looking for places to dine and visit. We have every intention of coming to stay at the Turtle Shell again soon. This year's trip was special for us as my husband and I were celebrating our third wedding anniversary and also spending quality time together as we anticipate the birth of our first child, a son, this October! We are very excited to bring our son in the future to The Turtle Shell we love so much. Thank you so much Debra for all you do! Staying at this property is a must for anyone who wants a wonderful beach vacation experience, and you can't find a better owner than Debra!"

"Some friends and I stayed here for an extended weekend to go Bluefin Tuna fishing. The house provided more than enough space for six of us and had everything we needed including oyster shuckers for those fresh oysters right off the boats at Wanchese. We caught a 100lb bluefin that we took right across the street to Sam and Omies who perfectly cooked it for us along with family style fixings (amazing meal). Jeanettes pier and the beach were conviently located right across the street for some sight seeing. This place is perfect, clean, and had the best location the Outer Banks can offer. Thanks for the great stay! We'll definitely be back again."

"We love this home! The location offers extensive opportunities for fun and food. For folks that love to cook, the kitchen is the best appointed I have ever seen. The three-floor plan is great for big family parties. I would visit this place every year if I could!"
