Guestbook comments from the owner

4/28 guests filled out our survey form and said the following "probably the cleanest house we've ever stayed in", "kitchen had everything we needed", "sliding doors in bedrooms to decking was a great asset". the only criticism they had is that internet was working intermittently (our line was out and they were picking up neighboring connections, centurylink finally came out on saturday so there's now a strong signal from our router), and "no tv's in bedrooms is not good". We've personally never understood the need for that but this is the 2nd time we've heard that so its now on our list to do this coming season, run cable and wall-mount flat screens to all 5 bedrooms.

Our stay at Seaquester

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for everyone to find a small little place where we could read or get off by ourselves but instead we tended to all gather in the one room off the kitchen at the table or in front of the TV or by the window seats! We absolutely loved everything about the place. The pool was sheltered pretty much from the wind (Hurricane Maria actually) and so we used that and the hot tub quite a bit. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation.

As we pulled into the driveway, beat from the drive from Philly we started unpacking and as in years past dreading the trudge up to the third floor kitchens. However Leslie, god bless you, an elevator!! It made bringing groceries and luggage back and forth so easy! The heated pool and hot tub were amazing. Kitchen has anything and everything for your stay. The beds are great. Views are spectacular and plenty of places to slip off to read or just sit and think. Place was immaculate. I would recommend this to any type of family large or small. We had two friends and my daughter and her boyfriend down early in the week and then it was just my wife and I and it was wonderful. So close to town for supplies. Also Sound Sea is a more spaciously laid out development and you don't get the closed in feeling you do in some other rentals. Leslie thanks again. As soon as we get squared away we will pick a week for next year!! Please rent this unit with confidence, you won't be disappointed!

PS the Handling of the rental from start to finish also was a treat. The company was in constant contact and only a call or a text away if needed. Reminders of what we needed to bring and what not. Keyless entry! Just the best.

Great first time to OBX at Seaquester

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location, great proximity to beautiful beach. The decks were wonderful, the space was more than adaquate for our group and dealing with the management company was very smooth! We would definitely rent again and had a wonderful vacation!

With all that said there are just a few suggestions/comments that we had and may seem nitpicky, but I personally would love to see in a review: pool/beach equipment outdated and broken (glad we had our own); septic tank cover in middle of "sand volleyball court" and not well maintained (bubbled and smelled terrible everytime you ran a load of laundry); advertised baby gate and highchair, both were broken; kitchen lovely and really well stocked except for serving and prep utensils/spoons; gorgeous updates, but makes areas not updated look worse (1st and 2nd floor need some attention); pool and slide were fun, but surrounding concrete is dangerously slippery when wet.

I hope in reading these, you don't change your mind about renting, because this place it TOTALLY worth it!! Just want people to know what to expect/pack when going to Seaquester!

We 100% would rent again, but will make sure to have our own baby/kid stuff, some kitchen things and our own beach stuff - but other than those minor issues it was GREAT!

Defintely recommend this house!!

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

The recent upgrades to this house made all the difference. The elevator was wonderful for our more mature family members. Very well equipped overall. The 2nd floor bedrooms could use some TLC and updating (especially the bunk room-).

Regarding OCEAN VIEWS: The bedroom on the 2nd floor does NOT have a view of the ocean (even though it faces the ocean). The only bedroom that has a view of the ocean is the one on the 3rd floor. This is the reason I gave it a 4 out of 5, and not a 5. For the price, guests may expect the other bedroom to have a nice view (like some comparable houses).

The views from common areas on the 3rd floor and the decks are super.

The pool was great (we heated it for night swimming and that was wonderful). The two refrigerators were a great addition, and definitely used by our family.
