OBX 2017

  • 5 of 5

The Senft family had a great vacation at Sounds Good despite the weather. The house is well maintained and updated with many extra features. The grill on the top floor was an extra suprise and of course the bikes were a hit with everyone. Easy access to the ocean was also a nice extra.

The Senft is planning to return in 2018 for another family vacation to OBX.

The best of the OBX!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sounds Good! The walk to the beach was short, and the grocery store was within walking distance. We had a group of 10 people (3 couples and 4 kids) and there was more than enough room for us to spread out and have some peace and quiet if we needed it. The dining room table is huge and we had some pretty awesome meals and game time around that table. We also loved the pool, and the convenience of the outdoor shower when we came back from the beach. It was so lovely to take a bike ride when the sun was setting on the sound, we ran into some deer that allowed us to observe them doing their thing. It was so cool! We were also very fortunate to be in the area during the Perseid meteor shower and the top deck was perfect viewing from the Adirondack chairs. It was amazing!

We would highly recommend Sounds Good and the area of Avon! The best the OBX has to offer!!

Amazing Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation at Sounds Good! It was super easy to walk to the beach or the grocery store. We also really enjoyed the bikes that came with the rental, we rode them all around town. The heated pool option was perfect in May, we hung out at the pool all afternoon every day! We loved the huge decks to sit out on during the day and after dinner. The rec room pool table was really fun at night. I would highly recommend staying at Sounds Good!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic beach vacation and lovely September weather at Sounds Good. This trip included my family of 2 adults and 3 young children as well as my parents. The house was spacious and nicely decorated. There was more than enough room for all of us. We basically lived at the beach and the pool all week. Besides a day trip to Ocracoke and a stop at the Orange Blossom, we surfed, swam, laid in the sun, had cookouts and enjoyed every minute! The beach is a short 5 minute walk. Some things we loved about the neighborhood: walking distance to the grocery store and fish market, wide streets for walking and biking, very quiet and peaceful. The house has everything you need for a relaxing vacation and the rental bikes are an added bonus! We can't wait to go back!

What a really, really nice house. My small group just completed a week at Sounds Good and we truly didn't want to leave. The furnishings and the bedrooms were all top notch and with a location convenient to everything in Avon this is definitely a house we will come back to.

The mid-October price makes the house very affordable and well worth the cost for the value we received.

Thanks Peter for all the good communication as well. It was a good experience from beginning to end.
