About Madeline Abbitt
I love the beach, fishing, surfing, tanning and just spending a great overall relaxing time. Ship's watch - coffee in the am, cool drinks in the P.M. Very romantic! Late afternoons after an outdoor shower, I sit on the porch swing and finish my book. It's a great way for me to wind down and really relax. That's me - a flatlander loving the sand.

Perfect Location and Family House
My wife and two daughters thoroughly enjoyed staying at the property. We had room to spread out with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, but also room to come together with a big dining room table and outdoor space. Everything about the owner was a breeze.
We just returned from staying here and it was one of the best trips our family has ever had. We truly owe much of that to the house, the comfort, its location, and response of the owner. The home is really equipped with everything you may need. There was even a power outage one day due to a thunderstorm that came through and we found candles and flashlights. This home really made travel with kids easy as there were toys, crayons, sidewalk chalk, sand castle gear, and even a small stroller (which we didn't pack because it would have taken up space and we thought we would just have to endure without). The only reason I give the check in process a 4 is because we were not used to having keys sent to us as opposed to them being available in an onsite lock box. So, I was curious how that would work out. BUT it did with no hiccups. In fact, Madeline sent additional info about the rental we found helpful. Thank you! And we really hope we can make this place an annual rental for us.
My family and I just spent a week here. It was a wonderful experience. The owner of the house responds quickly to any questions, the kitchen has everything you need, the game room was a added bonus to keep our kids entertained when we had rainy days. We absolutely love how close the beach is too the house, and how much space the house has to offer. The patios are very nice. Would also recommend Johnny's Dolphin Tour. All out an amazing experience
Thank you for the amazing review! I’m going to add the dolphin tour to the list of things to do. I didn’t know that existed. Always like to add to the list. So glad you enjoyed.
A relaxing Spring Break
Our stay at Blue Cabana this Spring Break was fantastic. The house is adorable and full of eclectic decorations. The game room kept us busy on the one rainy day we had. The house is fully equipped with kitchen needs, laundry room needs, even beach towels & bath towels as we were laundering our own. We never felt we were missing an item when we were cooking in the kitchen.
It’s an easy two-minute walk to the beach, or as we like to do, throw our stuff in the back of the car and drive around to the public parking, then just walk back to the house for a restroom or snack break.
Love to sit on the porch in the late afternoons and read while waiting to go out for dinner. (We enjoyed Austin’s Seafood, Captain George’s & the Black Pelican). It’s a sight to sit on the porch in the evenings and see the Wright Brothers Memorial lit up. Or to take a leisurely walk on the beach to work off dinner.
We played at Jockey’s Ridge one afternoon. Saw a movie at the local movie theater, ordered Duck Donuts online one morning, shopped at the outlets one late afternoon, and even drove the pretty beach road drive to the Hatteras Lighthouse.
Mainly we spent as many hours on the beach as possible.
We booked again for a week later this summer!!
Save your $ this place isn't worth it. Racist artwork all over this place
Appliances are old and rusty. Property owner is non responsive. Racist artwork in the home. ANTS are everywhere. The deck is old and falling apart. Blinds do not work. TV didnt work. The property owner lives in another state but keeps your deposit because a third party houecleaner says to. Furniture is dated back to the early 1980s. Gameroom is recycled salvation army toys at best. Other renters warned me not to rent here and I wish I listened. If your hobbies include wasting money, killing ants and looking at racist artwork for a week you might like it here.
As you can tell and look at other reviews this is not the case. This renter is disgruntled and left the house in shambles. For the first time in 15 years I have had to retain the deposit.
Overall great house for our family vacation!
Cabana Blue met the needs for our family vacation with 8 adults and an 8 year old. The configuration of the bedrooms and baths worked very well. The house was well stocked with all the dishes we needed to prepare some of our meals. We could even bake a cake! The gas grill worked great as well. Everything was very clean on our arrival. Madeline was very responsive and easy to work with. The walk to the beach was very easy. The outdoor space was very nice - the pictures don't really do it justice. We enjoyed stargazing from the crows nest! The game room was great on the rainy days - the guys had a good ping pong competition! The only recommendations I would make is that it could use some cosmetic updating and some of the beds were not very comfortable. The wagon and chairs need to be replaced - I'm sure the weather takes a toll on them. These are all just minor things - we would rent again should we return to OBX!
Thank you so much for your review and enjoy the rest of your summer!
Totally in the center of the Outer Banks. All of your needs and activities are centered around the 8 mile post. Groceries, pharmacy, library, fast food, gas, upscale restaurants, shops, movies, etc. Yet the house is located on a very quiet and safe street with direct beach - no need to walk blocks to get to the beach.
