Clean, well equipped, and beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, well maintained and provided a great place to stay for a family vacation in the Outer Banks. The pool was wonderful and the beach absolutely beautiful. Couldn't ask for more in a vacation house. Already planning our return next summer!

Great First Time Stay In Outerbanks!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a first time visit to the Outerbanks and had a great time. As first time users of home away, we were very satisfied. The property was accurately described (inside and out) and pictures provided were accurate. Furnishings were beautiful. Appliances were up to date and in working condition, kitchenware provided for all needs while staying. Chose this property based on reviews and because its pet friendly. A short walk to beach. Very quiet surroundings. Development well cared for and security was visible during our stay. Only problem we had was with dryer. The owner called the next day after speaking with "steve" who stopped by on Tuesday to check on pool and see if there was anything that needed attention. Told him about shower head in one bathroom not working properly and he returned within a 1/2 hr. with a brand new one! Spoke w/owner regarding dryer and he was apologetic and as far as I could tell was grateful for being informed. Although property was listed through Home Away, this year the owner used realtor handle the rental arrangements, Kitty Dunes (would not recommend them). They sent us to the wrong office to pick up the keys and basically did not want to be bothered with anything while we were there. Signs and all information provided by them gave the impression they would not be responsive. Not a very friendly staff. Our unit came with "flyers club" sheet and towel service. Typical hotel quality towels, sheets were a little small for beds, but we were able to get them on with a little work. Good supply given. Restaurants not great in the area and expensive. We used the BBQ grill provided quite a bit while we were there. Was not expecting the traffic upon arriving in the outerbanks being first timers and the large crowds in two grocery stores. will be better prepared next time. Day trip to Hatteras and Manteo. Not necessary, but nice if you have the time and are willing to give up a day on the beach. Wild Horse Tour the last day a nice experience if you can, a little pricey. Outerbanks stand up paddle board in Duck, run by Rob and Michelle, outstanding! They were terrific with our 2 teenage boys. Reasonably priced and a really fun time. They even take pictures for you and send them to your email. Would definitely recommend taking a lesson from them. Buck's ice cream in Timbuktu shopping area right across from us had delicious homemade ice cream. Best store, Kitty Hawk Kites!

Great vacation, somewhat disappointed

  • 3 of 5

We spent a great deal of time choosing a location that would be suited for a large family with several small children. This property was clean and accommodating; however, I would not recommend this for families with small children. The walk to the beach is too long for young children and there is no parking available near the beach (we had to drive the children to the beach, take our car back to the house and then walk to the beach). Unfortunately, there are also no restrooms near the beach making this even more difficult. The property also has many steps and could be difficult for some. Shopping was great, some restaurants were available. We were able to check in earlier than most rental properties which is terrific for families traveling a distance with children. The pool was smaller than expected; water was warm but could have been better maintained (dirty before and after the "pool cleaner" left the premises). I would recommend this property to families with older children.

Owner's Response: In 8 years of using our pool cleaning service, there has never been a complaint; and they take great pride in their work. As can be noted from other reviews, the home is ideally suited for young and old alike.

Our vacation at the Sand Piper

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week at the Sand Piper in Corrola, NC. The house was immaculately clean on our arrival and was extremely comfortable for my husband and I, our twin 17 year old sons and another 25 year old friend. The layout was perfect, since it afforded alot of space to get away from each other when we wanted to, or to be together to watch a movie or play a game. The furnishings are new, bright and very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were very well maintained and we thoroughly enjoyed them. The owner had a nice selection of DVD's that we enjoyed throughout the week. We used the charcoal grill outside to prepare several meals. The two decks and pool area were great for just relaxing and reading. The walk to the beach was about 5 blocks, which wasn't bad, but if you have a wagon (for children) or bikes that you could bring with you, you'd probably be glad you did. We entered the beach at the "Q" access which was a great area of beach. Guarded by life guards... beautiful sand... great waves...lots of fun! The outside shower at the house was great to spray off with before going into the house or the pool. The washer and dryer were great and allowed us to pack very lightly for the week. We grocery shopped at the FOOD LION, which is only a couple miles up the road -- nice store with good prices. Our family enjoyed a couple of evenings shopping/ playing miniature golf up at Tim Buck II, which was also very close. Lots of restaurants close by... although we didn't eat out much. We took our boys to Duck to jet ski for an hour session and they loved it! We had taken them parasailing from there on our last trip and that was awesome too! We also spent one day and drove all the way down the coast to Ocrakroke and saw that light house, along with the Cape Hatteras Light House (which we climbed!) on the way back. Currituck Light House is just a few miles away and is just beautiful and fun to climb. All in all, it was a GREAT vacation and we can't wait to go back again next year. The owner was extremely accomodating, easy to deal with, and promptly replied to any questions we had. All in all it was EXCELLENT experience and I highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: While we greatly appreciate this excellent review it should be noted 5 blocks is not like City blocks but rather 5 streets in Ocean Sands (approx 450 yards). Bikes are available for renting also

A Home from Home Sea and Sun Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully, clean, well-maintained comfortable home-from-home property that allows an easy transition for families and/or extended families to enjoy the comfort and space needed to relax. The house is well equipped and provides TV's and DVD's for entertainment, a collection of books for light reading for those thus inclined and play materials for children. Decks on two levels provide the opportunity to eat outside and also enjoy the luxury of hot tub to relax in. The property is in a quiet secluded neighbourhood and while there is a swimming pool on the property the house is within walking distance from the sea and miles of sandy beaches. There are a number of very fine restaurants in the area for those wanting to experience a break from the culinary arts!

I would highly and unreservedly recommend this property to others for a really relaxing vacation and hope that they will equally enjoy their time there.
