Amazing, hospitable stay right off the beach
"My girlfriend and I took a 4 day trip to the Outer Banks and stayed at Fiddlers Green. I've been to a number of areas up the Outer Banks (probably 8 to 10 previous trips with large groups) and this is the most relaxed and at home I've felt. Lucille tended to our every need, gave us tips on things to do in town, and left us some fantastic treats in the fridge.
The house is a block from the beach entrance in an incredibly quiet and safe neighborhood. The house has a ton of character and we loved the patio and the widow's watch in the mornings and evenings. A ton of books and DVDs along with reading material and pamphlets on the Outer Banks are available. It was very convenient having beach gear available for our use.
We suggest a long bike-ride through the neighborhood at night - the stars out in Salvo are fantastic. Hunting for ghost crabs at night is always a favorite. You can catch a lot of the sunrise and sunset from the widow's watch. There are two pizza places nearby, a few restaurants, and a great grocery/deli that's open till midnight and serves up some amazing sandwiches. I found the beach in this section to be pretty spacious without a huge crowd which was fantastic.
You couldn't pick a better retreat! We'll surely be back :)"

"We had a wonderful time and your home was beautiful definitely accomadating for a large group! The weather was great for the most part and would love to rent again during warmer weather. The only thing my guests were disappointed about was that there were no tips on the cue sticks for the pool table so they couldn't play pool. Otherwise our stay was great and we would definitely stay again. Next time we will take our kids. Such an adventure driving through the Sand and seeing the wild horses. It's pretty great taking everything out to the beach using your vehicle. Thank you again Brenda for the awesome rental property."

"This was our first ever vacation to Carova Beach and it was truly awesome! The home was great and the location is perfect. The six suite design gives EVERY guest their own personal space with no bickering over bathrooms or who gets the biggest beds. The kitchen was very nice and stocked better than any other vacation home I have ever rented. I also have never seen a bigger selection of games, books and movies than what Ocean's End has to offer. Many in blu ray too. Yeah there were a few housekeeping issues but they were minor and had more to do with the previous guests more so than the owner. Housekeeping missed a few sandy spots here and there but for 3800sqft they did ok. I have also had the very same experience with every other vacation home in the past. I always plan on a few personal touch ups and cleaning to fit my standards. Let's face it, if owners had to pay someone to come and do a full detail then the costs would be hundreds more and days of down time. As an example, one of the previous guests all but ruined the little weber gas grill by trying to cook what looked like cheese steaks on the grill and then just left the HUGE mess for us. Though I never needed the little weber, I still spent about 30 to 40 minutes scrubbing it so the next renters wouldn't blame me. There were only two or three good cue sticks for the pool table but once again this was due to abuse from past guests. Once again par for the course in rentals and to be expected. Pool table was of a higher quality than most and in good level condition which is a big plus. The horses visited daily as noted by others and actually seemed to like the area enough so that more times than not, if you looked out the window, there they were. Pretty cool! The volunteer fire station was right next door and everyone there was super nice. There is a little gift shop in the station that opens from 12pm to 2pm. They have bag ice for sale, shirts, hats, cold drinks, ice cream and snacks and love to show off the fire trucks to the little ones. Best part, everyone else had to drive there to ice up or grab an ice cream, at Ocean's End, you just walk next door. Also a plus that the only 24hr paramedic is only steps away just in case. Overall the horses, house and location can't be beat. I look forward to another visit in the future."

"we loved the house, the location, and the deck on the house. We had 6 adults & 3 kids and plenty of room to have separate space and also room to hang out together. Also enjoyed having the pier close by. Would love to return!"
