Why Ron chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

My family has been coming to the Outer Banks for almost 25 years. We fell in love with this wonderful beach area the first time we stayed back in 1987. We returned 3 weeks after our first trip to visit again. We built our home because the area it is located is so peaceful and serene. Each day when the sun goes down you hear the birds finishing their chirpings and the crickets coming to life. It is truly a calming place to come and relax away from your hectic everyday life. We wouldn't give it up for anything.

What makes this house unique

You can walk out the back door and go fishing, crabbing and kayaking. If you are unlucky and have a rainy day there is a game room with Air Hockey, Foosball and a large Poker Table. The game room also includes a dry bar with a refrigerator, microwave,

blender and flat screen TV. If the game room is not for you a Movie Library with over 300 films and a new Ping Pong Table are available. There are also over 75 Paperback Books available for you reading pleasure. If you are not done reading when your trip is over please take the book with you. Almost anything you might need is less than a mile away with 2 big Grocery Stores, Seafood Store, 2 Chines take Outs, Subway, Deli, Pizza, Walmart, an ABC Liquor Store and 6 Banks.

And on those sunny days you can take a quick few minute ride to a our Private Beach, jump into the pool (open May to October) or play a pickup game of Basketball right out the side door. At night, if feeling a little achy from your fun filled day you can take a nice dip in the Hot Tub on the back deck or go night swimming in the solar heated pool.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a fabulous week at Serene Dream! Our family has been coming to the Outer Banks for 30 years, but have always stayed in Rodanthe. We thought it might be fun to try a new location and we LOVED it here! The view of the canal was beautiful and by far, this house was the most well equipped of any house we've ever stayed in! The house was beautiful with the snowfall after Christmas, and we loved seeing the neighborhood all decorated for the holidays. We all enjoyed the hot tub, even in the snow! Thank you (loved the wine).

What a treat! This house has it all and made for a wonderful family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying in this home. We had both sets of parents and young kids and never felt like we were on top of each other. The layout of the house is perfect for a family vacation as well as accommodating folks with accessibility issues. Ron was fantastic and took care of a lot of personal touches as well as being easy and available to communicate with. Every time you open another cabinet or closet you find something else handy, whether it is for the beach or to play in the pool or for cooking in the kitchen. Plenty of dishes, platters and cutlery both glass and plastic and all the gadgets you need (we didn't spot the waffle iron until the last day!).

Great location. Great homeowner.

  • 4 of 5

House is centrally located in a nice quite development right on the canal. Easy 20 minute walk to the beach or about 5 minute car ride. House is spacious and well equipped with everything you need. Grocery store is 5 minutes away. Homeowners left a certificate for a free dozen of bagels and two bottles of wine, what a nice touch, thanks to the both of you, it was a nice treat. There is a nice deck over looking the canal, nice in ground pool and hot tub. Plenty of space for our 10 people and dogs. Ron is attentive and prompt with any issues or questions. If I had to complain (which I don't and these are minor) the front porch area needs a good cleaning, the outdoor items like the bikes etc need replaced, they are really unusable and it would have been nice to have good operational bikes for women, men, teens and kids to ride to the beach or around the beautiful neighborhood. Kayaks would also be a great addition. No ocean view, but the canal made up for it to be able to launch the kayaks and fish right in the back yard. We had a wonderful time and would definitely go back! Thanks Ron.

Gorgeous home!! Very clean!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from spending the week in this house. The home is beautiful and was extremely well cleaned upon arrival. The decorations are amazing and definitely add to the "beach vacation" ambiance but not so over the top that I had to be nervous about my 3 year old touching everything. The beds and all of the other furniture were comfortable and functional for a large family. We really enjoyed the pool and we had quite a few "movie nights" with the large collection of movies on hand. Bikes in the garage, and a nice selection of toys if u have little ones. Would definitely recommend this house for a great vacation. No complaints at all and Ron was VERY accommodating whenever we needed anything. Thank you again for letting us borrow your wonderful home.

A Lovely Beach Home

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved our week in Serene Dream. Ron communicated via e-mail and worked with us as a friend. He and the housekeeper went out of their way to have the house ready early for us and set up a make-shift recliner for me to elevate my injured knee. The kitchen was gorgeous and well stocked, and the beach decorations throughout the house are gorgeous. Everyone loved the pool and hot tub. This was our second year in this lovely beach home, and we had our family picture taken on the front steps again. Thank you for the great accommodations!
