"My husband and I booked The Studio in October to get away for a long weekend and a little R&R after a hectic, busy summer, and this beautiful little place couldn't have fit the bill more perfectly! Debbie was so welcoming, and although we didn't really cross paths with her during the rest of our stay, she made it super clear that she was always available if we needed anything. Perfect for when we just wanted to be alone and chill.
The Studio decor has a warm, homey, artsy, eclectic vibe. It was very clean with several amenities and a well-stocked kitchen. So if want to cook, you really only need to bring your food and beverages. The outdoor, enclosed patio was cute and quaint as well.
There are 2 full-size beds - one on the main level and one in the loft. We're tall people so the bed was a tad small for us, but it was super comfortable nonetheless. One would have to be pretty comfortable with the ladder/stairs leading up to the loft, so we just stayed on the main level.
Being mid October we were blessed with near perfect weather. Rented a golf cart for a day and spent one of the days just zipping around the whole town site seeing, stopping at shops and popping in different restaurants along the way. Happily not too many places had closed for the season yet, so most everything was still open.
We spent the better part of another day going over to Portsmouth Island to do some fishing. The charter boat taking everyone over gives you the choice of going to see the abandoned town or just dropping you off right on the beach. We opted for the latter with all our fishing gear, and were treated to a beautiful day of beach combing, fishing and relaxing. From what we heard from the others who explored the town: Bring.Bug.Spray. Lots of it. We didn't have a problem with that on the beach.
Although we cooked in for a lot of our meals, we also tried many of the local restaurants. We would highly recommend Dajio's, Zillie's and for a phenomenal burger, don't miss SmacNallys!
We would definitely come back and stay at The Studio in a heart beat. It was a perfect, relaxing getaway and definitely made us feel like we were on "island time.""

"This how is incredibly clean and very well taken care of, the location is the icing on top! The views from the top deck are breath taking and the shops and places to eat around are amazing aswell. You could walk anywhere you want, especially the beach which is just steps away from the house! This house has everything and more and my family and I loved every moment of our vacation in the outer banks thanks to this house and we will be back!"

"The walk is actually three minutes to the beach as advertised. The kids loved feeding the turtles in the pond out back. There is one monster turtle that is much larger than the others. The house is clean. Wifi is generous enough to stream Netflix or upload photos. Would recommend."

"It was our first visit to the Outer Banks and we really enjoyed it! The Shelter is clean, neat and exactly like the pictures. You are a short walk to the beach and some small shops and grocery mart. If you want relaxtion and beach time, it's perfect. We had good food at all of the restaurants we visited."
