"This place was just as lovely as I had hoped. The owner was immensely helpful and welcoming. Check in was super convenient and on my schedule. Could be done with a lock box, but owner was there to welcome my husband and I, even though it was late. She helped us plan our days and gave us tips for dining and sightseeing. I loved having her there on the property to help if I had a quick question, but we also had plenty of privacy, too. The studio felt very separate with the layout and trees helping to give us some sense of coziness. The place itself was very quiet as the property is located nearly at the end of an already quiet street so almost no one drives by. The backyard is a little slice of heaven with lots of trees, including a sweet Weepin Willow cradling individual seating areas in a flagstone patio, with access to a grill if desired. A hammock is hung near the water between two trees with a string of lights draping over it to give you a lovely nighttime escape. And of course, the dock on the Sound is the best seat in the place to take in the beauty of the massive body of water. We were blessed with the most spectacular sunset reflected like a mirror over the calm waters while we were there. The land mass to the west is far enough away that it nearly disappears completely, leaving the most peaceful, serene view before you. Lighting hanging in the trees at night brings the space alive and everything felt so warm and inviting. Inside the studio was just perfect - everything we needed - and just the right amount of space. Just as cozy and welcoming as the lovely yard. We WILL be back and were sad to have to leave!!!"

"We typically stay in Duck, but found this place on VRBO & saw the beautiful front-row views of the sound and decided to book this home. Wow, what a great view, sunsets were beautiful, evenings by the fire pit helped take the chill off (we came early in the season), and everyone of the 6 us was pleased! Most of us are from "up north" so it definitely had more of a "lake house" feel, which we loved! 2 of the bedrooms are on one end of the home, while 3 are in the other...helps with groups/families and allows for a "retreat" when quiet time is needed. The home was super clean, clearly the owners take pride in the home and use it personally, unlike many of the pure rentals in the area."

"Spent 4 nights here with an old friend of mine from Durham in october.
The place is perfect for 2 to 4 folks. Friends or a couple. Very nice clean and cozy. The fact that it is surrounded by trees makes you feel some privacy.
We loved the backyard with the nice fire place, and the canal that leads to the sound. We rented a canoe, it was nice to paddle around.
Malissa is a very nice and thoughtful person, she provided more than other other cottages i have rented in the outerbanks.
Also, the location is nice to find out about the outerbanks, especially not very far from the nice corolla, and nags head piers.
My girlfriend who couldn't take vacation this time wants already that we come back together!"

"Kenny and Patti were so kind enough to rent their beach house to us. You walk in and it feels like home. Everything is so clean and tidy. You can really see how well the owners take care of the house. Just like another reviewer mentioned, Kenny called during the week to see how our stay was so far. This is first class service! They're so sweet and accommodating. The pool was great and I think they just updated the pool furniture. The house has plenty of space for a big group and no one felt like they were in each others way. Although you do have to cross the main highway, the beach is close by. It's about a 10 minute walk. If you have kids, I do suggest driving. There is plenty of parking by the beach. The house is in a great location and everything is close by. Kenny suggested a seafood market near the Harris Teeter which was FABULOUS! We would definitely come back and recommend this house to our friends."
