Near OBX

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. The house had everything needed and was very homey and comfortable. The Cuttrick Sound out beyond the backyard was beautiful. We enjoyed watching boats go by and cranes landing in the yard. The area was very quiet, which we wanted, but yet it was still close enough to things... only a 30 minute drive to the Outer Banks. H2OBX is a huge waterpark, only about 25 minutes away. We had a blast there! Huge slides, a lazy river, a wave pool... Our week went by so fast. We were disappointed when it was over. We'd love to be able to return again!!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed here before and have enjoyed it each time. The home is clean and has everything you need, plus a washer/dryer, which is wonderful. There was a larger TV since the last time we visited! Yay! It would be nice to have a dishwasher and garbage disposer. This year it looks like the main sliding glass door that provides the best view of the dock and sound has lost its seal, resulting in moisture/condensation and the view being obscured :-( The sound was great though, and we took our inflatable kayak out paddling several times during the week that we visited. Love this area and its lack of crowds while still getting to enjoy the outer banks.

Beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

Very roomy house. Large yard for summer fun and doggies. We didnt have an issue with the neighbor's 2 dogs at all (as another renter mentioned) they were on leads so they didnt bother our dog. We went in November and the weather was gorgeous. The sun rises are BEAUTIFUL so had to be up early for those. Great communication with owner, she replies almost immediately. Recommend Lammers Stained Glass & Gifts on Caratoke Highway, could have stayed in there all day. Also the Black Pelican restaurant in Kitty Hawk had some of the best flounder I have ever eaten.

A perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well equipped and the area is just beautiful - that view from the deck is perfect and very peaceful. Both neighbors either side were friendly and welcoming - in fact, one came over to offer us tips on where and when to take good photos, having noticed that one of us was a bit of a photographer.

The house itself is great - friendly and homely, so well equipped - you won't want for anything in the kitchen. We loved the pool table!

In terms of location, this is great for visiting the Outer Banks but still maintaining a bit of space and peace. We took trips every day and visited Corolla, Duck, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and over onto Roanoke Island and Manteo. We climbed lighthouses and ate far too many Duck Donuts! We made a trip to Virginia Beach, which was just an hour away.

The local restaurants were amazing - I'd recommend Coinjock Marina and Currituck BBQ. We also visited Morris Farm Market and Frog Island Seafood - both are a must!

It's also really nice to be able to take our dog away - he had a great vacation too.

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful property.

We didn't use the boat - we ran out of time and we didn't manage to catch any crabs but then we didn't bait the traps properly.

Away from the hustle & bussle of the OBX, yet close

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June, it was very hot. It was the most fully stocked rental I've ever stayed in. almost every thing we needed was there. Michelle, the owner is very easy to work with. After staying 4 times on the island, we didn't want all that busyness, yet we we're a short drive away. The setting was beautiful. A lot of good restaurants within 10 miles. We caught and ate crab of the dock. The kids rode twice on a bigfoot truck right down the road. Went to the aquarium & on a wild horse tour. Looking forward to going back.

Wonderful Base Camp for Outer Banks Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I took a 3-day mini-vacation the weekend before Memorial Day and this was the perfect place to do it. Just 30 minutes away from Kitty Hawk, it was an extremely convenient starting point for a day full of activities on the islands. And the house is perfectly outfitted for a day of pure relaxation, with comfy furniture, a well-appointed kitchen, satellite TV and Internet access, a gorgeous waterfront view and, of course, the awesome hot tub!

Michelle and Chris were great hosts. I had a couple of questions while I was there and they replied to me immediately. The house was clean and bright and the bottle of wine they left for me was greatly appreciated! :)

I hope to stay there again for future OBX visits and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a short- or long-term visit to the area.
