About The Owner

Every year the routine was the same: Pack the car the night before. Wake up before the sun to fill the ice chest and cram, what seemed like, the entire contents of the kitchen cabinets into any spare spots. Get on the road with your breakfast of soda and a pack of nabs tucked into your cup holder. The drive was always long, but that made the arrival all the more exciting. My dad took us on these beach trips every year. As a small child I enjoyed my time on the beach, frolicking in the sand and surf without a care in the world. To me "the beach" was any beach, but that all changed after one visit to the outer banks. This "beach" is so much more. When you visit you feel a connection that is hard to describe. That connection brought me back to the banks for my wedding atop Jockeys Ridge in 2007. My father was there to walk me up the dune. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease a short time later at the age of 55. It was devastating but my dad pledged to make as many memories as he could with his time. We took many more beach trips in these last 10 years. Owning a beach house was an impossible dream for my father. I loved the idea of a beach home but thought that was always a "someday" purchase. As my dad's disease slowly stole his personality, his humor, and his memories I realized not everyone is guaranteed a "someday". So we have taken the leap and purchased this property with the hope that we can provide our children with the kind of memories my dad left for me.

I hope that you enjoy your vacation to the Outer banks. I hope you have good weather, a cool breeze, and beautiful sunsets. But most of all I hope you make memories with your family and enjoy the time you have together!

Wonderful property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house from April 1st-7th and couldn’t have been more pleased with it. The owner, Amber, was awesome and very helpful with every question or concern that we had. The hot tub was very nice to come home to. The views from the decks were amazing! The layout of the house is very nice. We especially liked the third floor which has a big open layout, perfect for large families with lots of kids. The walk to the beach was nice and short. All in all we loved this house and would vacation there again!

Nice Home/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. The pool table and hot tub were a big hit!! It was on a quiet cul-de-sac. The house has a very nice open floor layout. Very convenient walk to the beach. Nice that you can bring your pets. Close restaurants. Plenty of shops close by. We are looking forward to our next stay in July!!

Relaxing Time In Waves

  • 4 of 5

The owner (Amber) was very responsive to all questions. The grill ran out of propane during our stay, she had new tank delivered same day! House is nice (can tell updates are being made), and located on quite street with pretty equal distance access to beach and sound. Hot Tub is on second level deck which is accessed by both king bedrooms. This was our first time staying this far south, Waves is cool little town, if you want to get away from the masses! Take in great sunsets at the Real Water Sports complex, or even from deck of house. We enjoyed our stay!!

Good size, amenities, and easy beach access for the price.

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting a vacation home on the OBX, almost annually, for years now. But we always have to hunt for the most affordable that will accept multiple pets and sleep a lot of people. Dancing Gull proved perfect for us, being that the owner was very understanding and accommodating of my family of dog lovers. The house had everything we needed in the kitchen. Was a good size to not feel crammed in. There is a large selection of board/party games which was a pleasant surprise. Great fun was had with the billiard's table as well. TVs in the bedrooms was a perk for everyone winding down at night. The path to the beach at the end of the street was waterlogged the first couple days we were there so we would drive down to the public beach access that was very close and convenient. Later in the week we were also able to walk the path at the end of the road which felt even more convenient. Being that it is a pet-friendly rental, it would be nice if there were gates installed on the stairways for the two decks, so that the dogs could go out unleashed. The neighbor was a nice enough fellow and let us borrow some scrap wood boards that he had, in order for us to temporarily slide between the railing and block the upper deck stairwell so that the dogs could go in and out with us freely. It was nice being on a quiet street which was good to take the dogs for a walk on multiple times a day when we didn't want to go with them all the way to the beach. The check-in and check-out process was a breeze. We would definitely recommend this house to others and consider coming back ourselves.
