About John Harris

One Important Note! I check my laptop 3 or 4 times a day so I can email you back as quick as possible the same day.

Our family photo taken Memorial Day, May 26th. 2014.

We purchased the beach house in 1995 and outgrew it as the family grew. In 2008 we added the first floor which was previously under house parking. This made the large first floor Master Suite with a full bath that everyone raves about today. Since then we have updated all 3 floors. Most recently we had the large 3rd. floor tile shower added and did away with the older tub. We got rid of the screened porch & added a private dining area which gives the adults a quiet dining experience if they so desire. We enjoy an ongoing updates to keep The Sunsetter the perfect vacation spot.

Pool added in The Summer of 2014.

The 1st. Floor Master Suite Home Theater added Fall of 2014. Bring your Pop Corn for the microwave.

Family is important to us so one week a summer we also come to The Sunsetter for our family reunion every year.

John Harris purchased this house in 1990

Why John Harris chose Kill Devil Hills

My wife and I live in Hampton, Va. which is a short 98 mile drive to OBX and have always loved The Outer Banks. Growing up in Hampton there was always a big magnetic pull to The Outer Banks. Nothing quite like it. Now, more people have that same attraction & many have made the move either for a second home or retirement. Of course the beach was our major draw all year & it still is. Now its even more than that with friends and family, cookouts. Trips to Ocracoke and the free NC ferry system, Surf fishing is great especially in the off season.You must ride down to Oregon Inlet Fishing Center to see the offshore boats come into the docks at 4:30 in the afternoon where they show off the daily catches.(Leave about 4:00). The lifestyle is really laid back. The weather is great all year around with mild winters.The main reason is that the warm gulf stream runs so close. You can compare the weather to Jacksonville, Florida.

When we need to get away from our very hectic lives in the city, The Sunsetter is the answer.

The Sunsetter offers more. WI FI, great Direct TV on 2 BIG Screens!

Extras in the bath rooms, dining areas & kitchens. This is not a 'bare bones' typical rental. Our VIPS just expect more.

What makes this house unique

Our family always head for the beach where we meet up with friends & the local neighbors, no matter what time of year!!! We enjoy walking to Chili Peppers for dinner and a great bar, this tends to be a night spot that the locals like. Other great dining spots are Lafogatas (Mexcian, family & cheap), The Black Pelican, great night spot for dining and a great bar for family & friends. Awful Arthur's (great night spot with big, big bars up & down, family & friends ( the seafood is great).

Walking to the KDH free pier (kids love to go crabbing on the pier.

Want to relax at The Sunsetter? Fix your favorite beverage and sit upstairs on the deck to watch the sunsets. The free boat ramp is great for boaters. Our cookouts are always fun.

If you do like to cook out, we do have an excellent stainless grill with two propane tanks, many places have rusted iron grills stuck out in the sand that you need to get charcoal & put foil on, whew! Tried that once and could not get the grill going, the steaks were done at midnight! Forget that deal.

The Sunsetter can do families of 8 max. Many times 2 families with a max total of 8 come. Many extended families with aunts, uncles, nephews etc. come for spring, summer & fall with up to 8 max..

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW!! We work hard and our vacation time is really something we feel we need . It's important that we take a short vacation when possible. The Sunsetter met all our expectations & more! We are looking forward to coming back in the fall. Had a wonderful time!!

July Vacation for the Morean Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation started on July 21 thru July 28,2018. We had rain all but 2.5 days but made the best of everything. Our stay at the Sunsetter Beach House was great even though we had a couple of hick-ups. John was very helpful in what we needed done. The kids and grand children loved the games in the house and most of all the pool.The house had plenty of space for everyone. Our over all stay was great just wish the weather would have been better. Thanks to John and his wife for being there when we needed them. Look forward to coming back sometime in the fall.

Owner's Response: This is our newest 5 STAR VIP Family! What an astounding family! Steve and his wife qualify for all the Sunsetter perks, discounted stays, extended offseason free nights and more savings! I knew that this was a perfect fit when they booked their week. I got to know them. I asked Steve if he was going fishing and he replied no and that he had just dusted off his surf board after 12 years. He liked the picture of Ann Marie and I with the Woody years ago. Their week was more than rain, this was Noah's Ark but Steve traveled in his 4x4 looking for waves from Corolla up north (watch out for the wild horses) to southern beaches without ever succumbing to the torrential rainy weather. What amazed me was that this was an overly very active family. They were bullet proof, nothing could stop them from having a great vacation. We chatted on the phone often and I could not stop laughing. At the end of their vacation week I drove down two hours to meet them. I cautioned them about the build up of the Saturday heavy traffic ( about 12 miles long by not leaving early) but again they were not a bit worried and said that they were not leaving the Outer Banks yet and took off to explore! With a smile on my face I just stared at them as they barreled down the road on another adventure! Then it came to me, this is really what it's all about whatever your age. Catch you on the next whirlwind wave Steve and Mandy!

Good Vacation house. Nice pool. All supplies in house.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoy ourselves here. The configuration of the house did not work for us but we adjusted. The king suite on the bottom floor did not work as a bedroom for us. There was no indoor access to the bottom floor. Grill worked fine.

Pros:

Pool - clean, alarms on door for kids

Wifi

Flat screen tvs

Lock box for front door

Recliners

Plenty of supplies

Large upstairs bathroom

Cons:

Bottom floor not connected

Older couches

Dusty - kids/adults allergies seemed to flare up

Too much furniture

Owner's Response: Great Family! 1st. Timers! PLEASE PARENTS!! NEVER USE THE FIRST FLOOR FOR CHILDREN TO STAY IN!! THE !ST. FLOOR HAS DIRECT ACCESS TO THE POOL.JUST PLAIN DANGERIOUS!! The Sunsetter has a new 3 Ton Rheem Heat Pump that has been moved to the back of the house for silent running and we use 3MFilterite HVAC filters throughout all seasons. allergy issues at The Sunsetter would be a rarity for sure. We never allow any pets not even our daughter's little Maltase. Too much furniture? We are Max. 8 people then I am going to sit 8 people comfortably on the main (2nd.) floor . The furniture including 3 double recliners is listed further down. The 1st. floor super Master Suite is not designed for kids staying alone. It's dangerious allowing kids full anytime access to the pool.The 1st. floor Suite is designed for privacy and safety. Period. Kids under the age of 14 should not have unsupervised access to the pool. I passed on the inside stair access because I did not want your Grandparents or another couple to be disturbed with a constant flow of traffic to their private bedroom suite. Nor did I want a flow of kids running downstairs by themselves heading for the pool. Please think safety here folks.Grandparents turn in early at night. The majority of our VIP clients agree that privacy over rules..The 1st floor is not ever intended for a children's suite because it has direct access to the pool, thus creating a non supervised situation. The 1st. floor suite is also equipped with a couch, chair and a new double recliner. Note~ The air filters are changed 2 times in the Spring, 3 times in the Summer and 2 times in the Fall and winter. The 2nd. floor has 2 new double recliners.2 single recliners and a couch to seat the max number of guests.

Great Pool! The whole family had fun!

  • 5 of 5

We choose the Sunsetter because it had a pool and great reviews. We had 7 in our family ranging in ages 6-75. Everyone had a wonderful vacation. We hung by the pool most mornings and headed to the beach each afternoon. Plenty of food choices nearby. We ran several mornings in the path near the bay and watched the sunset at the pier in the evenings. The week we were there we had wonderful weather! Sunny and warm everyday. The owners let us know a few hours early that the house was ready so we got right in. We enjoyed the Outer Banks, this was our first time there and when we plan another trip will check to make sure the Sunsetter is available.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful family from the Great State of Georgia! The Peach State! We always appreciate thoughtful families bringing grandparents. That's really why we designed the 1st. Floor super master suite with a new king bed and 800 sq. ft. of private luxury living. People do love the great double recliner, galley and large bathroom with washer and dryer (see pictures) When we were choosing the saltwater pool, a local installer suggested a Caribbean pool from Honduras in Latin America so it was barged to Ft. Lauderdale and shipped to Wilmington. It has been great! People who like to jog, walk or bike use the trail on Bay Ave. There is also a free pier and gazebo for sunsets and of course crabbing for the kids. A big item with us is safety! The Sunsetter is located just back far enough from the beach that you do not hear the 24/7 traffic and who wants their kids in the middle of that? Thanks, Ann Marie and John

The Sunsetter

  • 3 of 5

The home itself was clean. The pillow shams on the second floor bedroom were very dirty. Although there was ample cabinet space every one was full therefore there was absolutely no place to store groceries.The pool was very nice with plenty of chairs. The beach chairs though were all rusted. The two leather loveseats looked new and were very comfortable. It isn't the best home we have rented but it was okay.

Owner's Response: Just a note ~ What a great family! First Timers! Here's my Suggestion for families looking for a beach house for your summer vacation week. Always have the owner's phone number and email address with you so that during your stay you can call or text the owner in just seconds. It's an excellent way to get to know each other better and for 'Needy' people (which is ok) the owner can help you through anything instantly. It makes for a no hassle vacation week. Thanks for your response, I made an effort to ask these people for a Review since they were new to The Sunsetter...The Sunsetter has new beach chairs on the way! You could have gotten them during your stay but I did not hear from you. The 2 kitchen refrigerators alone can easily handle a week's worth of family groceries. Just call or send me a Tweet during your stay. Lots of guests Tweet all the time. It's a great way to get to know each other rather than post something 2 weeks later. That's not accomplishing anything..We have a House manager/ cleaner who we think is the best on the beach.. Our Sunsetter VIPS, families that have stayed 2 or more times, send texts, phone calls and emails on occasion to better equip The Sunsetter and they also don't mind throwing an item in the washer if they feel it's needed. We know our VIPS and they are our friends all over America. Our VIPS feel that The Sunsetter is their OBX Home away from Home and it really is. We always like new families also. The ladies (guys also) over the years have asked for more Kitchen pots, pans, crock pots, steak knives, baking dishes and so on so we pick up what they need. One VIP last June asked for a flip over waffle maker. She loves it now when making morning waffles for the kids. Let's take a look at the pictures on our VRBO 303119 site and these pictures are worth a thousand words. Fantastic, with 2 love seats recliners, full sized couch and 2 chair recliners. So the recliners are good for 6 people. I would have liked a call on the shams but that didn't happen. I would suggest just throwing them in the Samsung washer and dryer and telling me about it so I can pass it forward to our cleaning manager.. Our clients can text me 24 / 7.I have just spent $500 on band new Lowe's chase lounges for inside the pool area. I rotate the beach chairs every other summer.

Almost Heaven

  • 4 of 5

It was everything they said it was as far as perfect location, wonderful pool and perfect house for a group. The only reason it is a 4 was that it was not cleaned as well as it could or should of been. This may not be the fault of the owners because they do ask the renters to do a cleaning before they leave. I know it was cleaner after we left. Again, it was a great house and had no issues with communication. Would rent this house again in a heartbeat and recommend it to my friends and family..

Owner's Response: This was a new family to The Sunsetter. It's always great to have new families. Many of our families are Sunsetter VIPS meaning they have previously stayed at The Sunsetter before. Everyone loves the location because it's back just far enough not to hear the all day and night traffic! Plus it's much safer for the kids in our lower traffic area.The Sunsetter itself! And Of course the Saltwater Pool! 4 Star rating is a rarity so it's deserves a reply. I found out about this just as everyone else reading this. Nearly a whole week after this group's vacation. For people considering renting on The Outer Banks. If you believe something in your rental beach house needs attention, please call the owner or rental agency and let them know. These people could have easily called me and I would have sent my person right over. Rather than wait to list it on this site. Our Lease call for our guests (HELPS REDUCE CLEANING TIME BY OUR CLEANING MANAGER BETWEEN GUESTS CHECKING OUT AND GUESTS CHECKING IN) to leave The Sunsetter like they found it. Neat and clean. The Sunsetter is Saturday to Saturday. Upon Guest check out, our house manager comes about 10:00 am and cleans again and washes all the towels and Linens. I have generously given this family a 5 Star rating even though they opened the dishwasher while it was running and flooded the kitchen. I received an 'I'm sorry' text soon after. We also received 2 texts from them during their stay to ask where items were and they said everything was great! Nothing either time about the cleanliness of The Sunsetter.
