"This was a fabulous house, very well equipped and comfortable. This house really has everything you need, kitchen has great pans and cookware, plenty of glasses and silverware, bar ware, and every utensil you need including stuff for the grill, games, chairs, books, blankets for when you get chilly upstairs. Could use a few more dinner plates. Close to everything, you really do not have to drive at all once you land there. We were there in the spring so we did not get to use the pool but the hot tub was fabulous, beautiful stars at night. Very short walk to the beach for beautiful sunrises or long walks, was a little cool for sitting on the beach, and a short walk to the sound for sunsets. Also a quick walk to Duck for a stroll on the boardwalk or necessities. The decks on the house were terrific, lots of sun available with a wonderful breeze. Juliana, the owner, was very responsive to any issues we had. The house was clean and everything was well maintained. We had a wonderful time and I would recommend this rental to anyone."

"The home was wonderful to stay in. My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary in the Outer Banks. We liked how there was a neighborhood feel and away from the main drag, but it was only 10 -15 minutes to the ocean and much less to the Sound. The owner was very responsive to our questions (both e-mail and phone), and he was honest in his answers to our many questions. The security deposit was returned in full to us the day after we arrived home. The wifi worked well. We also very much appreciated that we didn't have to rent Saturday to Saturday. The rental price was very good, especially compared to so many other places in the area. If we come back to the Outer Banks, we'd very likely stay here again.
The only significant negative was the amount of sand / dirt and some pet hair that was inside the house when we arrived. With many beaches nearby I understand how tough it is (we spent an hour cleaning our own sand before we left) to keep these homes clean; however, we did not anticipate spending about two hours vacuuming rugs and sweeping the floors our first evening staying there.
Although we didn't need them, the kids' bedrooms were neat with the décor. Also, there were many kid-friendly videos available that'd be an added bonus if we brought our young child with us next time. Finally, the nautical theme throughout the house was great. For 5 days, it was a home away from home for us. I'm glad we stayed at "Sanity Break"."

One of the best family cottages in the Outer Banks
"Our family has been going to the Outer Banks for almost 15 years, and rented many cottages. This cottage was clearly the best we have ever stayed in! A great location, a wonderful pool with outdoor speakers, and the house was packed with toys, games, books, and things for family members of all ages to enjoy, even those who like to cook - as the kitchen, unlike many barren cottages you can rent, had a huge variety of utensils and even a stocked spice cabinet! Every room was very well decorated, and it was obvious the pride and work the owners take in their cottage. This is the place for us from now on."

"We loved this little condo tucked away on the sound side of Kill Devil Hills. Two bedrooms, a nice deck, the kitchen was fantastic, great dishwasher, washer, dryer. The condo was very clean when we arrived. But our favorite thing about this place was the Pool. Just a minute walk across the parking lot. Very relaxing. The only small drawback was the bed in the master bedroom. It was a bit old and creaky. But it wasn't a big deal. Everything else was great for our family. Although I never actually met Condit in person, she was a pleasure to work with through emails. We would definitely stay here again. Recommended."
