About Property Manager
My wife and I first visited this area of the OBX about 15 years ago and absolutely loved it. We decided to bring our family back in the summer of 2016 and vacation. While we were on vacation we began to entertain the idea of looking for a place we could own. After looking at some houses and enjoying our vacation we had to leave but the idea of finding our own place stuck with us. We returned to look at several house in Oct and fell in love with Oceans End. We close in Dec of 2016 and spent Christmas in the house as a family. Although not ideal for swimming we enjoyed the wide open beaches, horses and time together as a family. We currently live in Pennsylvania but hope to spend winter months on the Outer Banks once we retire. We have already started filling this house with wonderful family memories and if you decide to vacation at Oceans End we will do everything we can to make sure your wonderful memories become a part of Oceans End as well.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2010
Why Property Manager chose Fruitville
We love the natural look. No paved roads. Very secluded and quiet. We love the fact that we are living in an area that protects the wild horses. it is great to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Nags Head area and be somewhere out of the way.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the privacy of our pool and hot tub. We love to wake up in the morning and go out on the deck and see the ocean on one side and the sound on the other. There are always wild horses in our yard to greet us. They are very calm, fun to watch, and are used to people being around. We also love the closeness to the ocean front and enjoy long quiet walks on miles of beach front where very few people come. It's wonderful!

Beautiful house - Wild horses - duck hunting - Christmas at the beach.
Perfect for our large family!
Everything as promised!
An absolutely wonderful place and experince!!! Can not wait to return!!!! Thank you!!!!
We just returned home following our week long vacation at Ocean's End. How can I fit a week's worth of vacation for our two sons, their wives, our 7 month old granddaughter, my husband and myself in a short review?
Well, we had wild horses in the yard EVERY day. We went kayaking in the canals and bays. We went kayaking in the ocean. We went surf fishing in the ocean and caught a few (mine being the largest!!!). Walked to the beach. Drove to the beach. Walked the sand roads. Swam in the pool every day. Soaked in the hot tub every day. Shot pool in the game room nightly. Sat and relaxed on the expansive decks daily. Slept in our own spacious bedrooms every night. Enjoyed family time playing Trivial Pursuit in the comfort of the top floor family area. Enjoyed all our meals cooked in the great kitchen or on the grill. Watched a couple movies in the evening together as a family on the large screed TV in the upstairs family area. Went beaching during a full moon. Sat and talked for hours with the locals at the next door fire station. Basically, we made memories that will last a lifetime in a beautiful well appointed home that offered room to gather together as a family but also offered the room for us to spend some quiet alone time whether it be in our bedrooms, on the deck, in the game room,, the family room, the pool, or the back yard.
The owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
I am going to climb on my soap box here for just a minute. Having sat and talked with the folks at the fire station for quite awhile one day. I learned a little about the folks who 'vacation' at homes in the area. Ocean's End is such a beautiful home and in such a beautiful and peaceful area. There is no other place like Corova Beach in the country,,, perhaps the world. How can people be so disrespectful of other peoples' property and lifestyle is beyond me. I don't care if someone pays $10 or $10,000 dollars, it is still wrong to be disrespectful, thoughtless, destructive, and inconsiderate. Rather than having the mindset of "well, I paid for it, so it is mine to do what I please." perhaps try the mindset of "these people are so proud of their homes, accomplishments, and love of the area that they want to offer the opportunity to the rest of us to experience it at least once in our lives." For people to come into someone else's home and break furniture. destroy habitats, and ignore rules and regulations is beyond me!
Thank you so much for staying at Oceans End and thank you for taking the time to writes such a great review. It means a lot to us that you had such a good time. You are 100% right when you said we love it so much that we want others to have the opportunity to expierence spending time in such a special place. I know me writing that seems self serving because the rental fees help us maintain the property but it is sincere and the truth. Your family is exactly the kind of people we love renting the house to and hope you will return year after year.

Needs lots of love
The place is not clean. Kitchen cabinets were dirty. The ledge going down the steps, canopy over the bed in the master bedroom, master bedroom walls, window seals all throughout the home were all dirty. There was not one roll of paper towels in the house, not one roll of toilet paper in the house. We had to make our own beds. The furniture on the balcony of the master bedroom was broken.All the furniture in the house needs to be replaced with funiture that is in good condition. The outside jacuzzi operating panels were broken. This house is in needs of lots of love! This house also needs to have a regular thorough cleaning!!!
We are sorry the house did not meet your expectations. The house was deep cleaned before the season and it is cleaned professionally after every week. The house is used every week and if there are areas that need attention we will certainly have them addressed. Unfortunately the furniture does get a lot of use and (abuse) over the summer and some of it gets broken and worn. We try to remove and replace broken/worn furniture as soon as we know about it. We would have been happy to have broken furniture removed and replaced if you would have informed us.
You were sent a message telling you that you would need to bring your own paper towels, toilet paper, etc… (See below). I am not sure what to say about you needing to make your own beds. The house is not a hotel so there is no maid service. The linens are provided but maid service is not a part of the rental. This property is in the 4X4 area of the OBX with wild horses going through the property on a regular basis. We understand that people take their vacation time and money to spend a week with there family and it is important to us they have a memorable and wonderful time. You sent me two messages which I responded to within a half hour and you did not get back to me. After not hearing back from you I called the property manager and had them stop by to try to resolve the issue. The first time it was because there were marks in the plastic silverware tray from the silverware hitting it when placing the silverware in the tray and taking the silverware out of the tray. You messaged me again that the power was out. I again called and messaged within a half hour and did not hear back. I contacted the property manager who said power was out in the whole area which unfortunately is not something we can fix. (2 hour outage)
(Message below is excerpt and was sent prior to check in)
You will need to bring: all paper products (paper towel, toilet paper, kleenex), trash bags, dish soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, coffee, coffee filters, dish towels if desired, beach towels, flashlights, all food. You will need to bring your own chargers for any electronics, and batteries if needed (or if you want to use the Wii- the remotes may need them). Please bring a lighter for the grills also. The electronic ignitions go bad quickly in the salt air. We leave a lighter whenever we are there but they seem to disappear from guest to guest so please bring one with you.
Great house for extended families!
Great layout for several families to stay comfortably in one house. Close to the beach and having the firehouse next door is reassuring! Owner very hospitable and took care of any issue we had very quickly!
It was a pleasure having you as guests and please come back again.
Hope the rest of your summer is Awesome.
A great house in a great area!
My family and I had tons of fun at Oceans End. It was our third year staying there. The house is very clean, spacious and has every amenity needed to have a great vacation with extended family. 15 of us stayed here very comfortably. Carova Beach is our vacation destination of choice. The wild horses are so cool to see and 4-wheeling on the beach is a blast.
Thank you so much for staying at Oceans End and we hope you will make it 4 in a row at Oceans End.
The wild horses come by our house frequently and often are in the yard!
