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!!

Nice place to stay for vacation

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nice. We stayed for 5 days as a getaway for spring break. The house is very spacious and does have everything we needed. Spent my mornings on the dock watching the sunrise - beautiful. Weather wasn't perfect for part of our trip, so that was a bummer (although it did lead us to discover "Flippers" arcade and laser tag down the road). Views are great and we enjoyed the hot tub on the deck on the nicer days. I would definitely recommend the Curritcuk BBQ place down the road - it was fantastic.

Only cons: We didn't find a whole lot to do in the immediate area at the time we were there. Ferry ride to Knotts Island was fun but the whole island was pretty much closed. Farmer's markets not open yet. We ended up doing stuff in the Outer Banks, but it was over an hour to Corolla and this was not the busy season. About 30 minutes to Kitty Hawk, so that was fun.

Overall a great stay, thanks Michelle for great communication and a fun place for our family to spend spring break.

Barco NC

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location which was about a 40 minute drive to OBX. The place was very quiet, with fishing in the back yard and off the dock. Caught a few crabs right off the dock. Would be great if we had small boat. Weather nice, with a great breeze (including that of hurricaine Maria while we were there). We could watch the sunrise from the back deck. Great place for our puppy. Lots of space to run and play ball. Pool table was great to pass the time in the house.

Loved the fact that we could park our trailer there, as we needed to transport it from New England to Florida.
