What makes this house unique

We are not run by a realty company but also own and operate hotels as well as other cottage rentals here. So unlike realty companies where it may take a few days to get something fixed, if for some reason something was to occur needing maintenance we are able to have it fixed asap because we are onsite daily at our adjacent properties.

Please note, in the google maps satellite image--the image was taken before the house was built in 2003 so the house is located in the empty lot which is to the north of the marker.

Wedding/Reunion Best Choice!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with a small group of family and friends then more came in Thursday and Friday for a wedding on Friday evening. They had no qualms with us having a couple of dinners at the house for the whole group and the Days Inn next door (which manages the property) even let us park our overflow there. Another word about the Days Inn, having them next door as the go to made issues that pop up so EASY. Our wi-fi was acting up one morning and someone was right over to look at it. (turned out to be a problem with the DSL that was resolved before the guy got there) On our second to last morning one of the coffee pots died. I walked over, reported it, walked back went to my room for something and came out to being told "Someone just brought over a coffee pot." That's service!

The house itself... Just look at the pictures. Every room was great. The master suite was fantastic. No neighbors. NO NEIGHBORS!!!! I had to find a place completely online from Phoenix, AZ so I looked at pictures, satellite imagery, reviews... anything I could get my hands on. Almost every place I looked at for this size, with these amenities and in this price range were all right on top of one another. This place has NO NEIGHBORS! And the public access next door wasn't a problem at all either. I had visions of John Candy eating breakfast in the movie Summer Rental with everyone looking in and asking to use his bathroom but we had nary a problem all week.

I don't know when we will be back to the Outer Banks or with how many people but if the needs and circumstance ever are the same we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Jameson Family

  • 5 of 5

The Jameson Family of Maryland (and one member from SC) stayed here nearly a year ago and the house was perfect. Everything was just as advertised; everything worked; and the house was as clean in mid-August as it would have been on opening day! The elevator was a blessing for my parents, the salt-water pool was heaven and the rental and maintenance personnel were great!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your coming to the Outer Banks and choosing to stay at our Wright House. Glad everything was great for your stay and that the elevator was a help to your family! We hope you are able to visit the Outer Banksg again soon!
