About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Mother Earth Father Sky is the name of the first novel in Sue Harrison's Carver Trilogy and was chosen as among the best books, for young adults, by the American Library Association.

But this Mother Earth Father Sky is a spectacular oceanfront home with three lovely decks, four beautiful bedrooms (two of which are master suites), basketball goal, high speed internet and satellite television. Wish upon a shining star while relaxing your cares in the six person hot tub or the private swimming pool. You'll love the outstanding panoramic views from two floors of sparkling glass windows.

Let the worries of weekend traffic just melt away. Because Mother Earth Father Sky is a Friday to Friday rental allowing you to spend more time enjoying the beach and less time sitting in the car. Rover is a welcomed guest too!

Reviewer Comments:

Defiantly needs updated. Mold in the bedroom down the wall to living room. Need easy access walk way yo beach. The fan in the living room was so thick with dust. Defiantly not the house we are used to staying in.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented the house in early spring and included our son-in-law, daughter, and granddaughter. We were the first guests of the season. While the house was ready for us, plenty tidy and clean, we were beset with numerous visits by the owner and repair guys for various things. That was a bit frustrating. Presuming all those items got taken care of for later season renters, I think you'll find the house a comfortable value. The kitchen is the focal point of the first floor and is more confined in space than pictured. Not a lot of storage for food stuffs, though, its fantastically stocked for cookware and such. We needed our own baby gates to ensure our two-year-old didn't try for the winding stairs or loft stairs, but we planned ahead for that. Two master suites upstairs were nice. We made good use of the jacuzzi and grill. It was too cool and early in the season to use the pool. The house sits right on the dune line. The good news: the dune is in excellent health (although, you'd be a better steward to walk down one house and hit the beach using the boardwalk rather than the path on the dune attached to the house). The bad news: the dune is high enough, that from the first floor, you can't see the ocean. In fact, its a bit a stretch from the upstairs, too. But, you can hear it! We appreciated the Friday to Friday rental and our dog was part of the week and we were grateful for that.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is much smaller than it appears. You are buckle and dined for everything. If you want linens, that's an additional charge and they are dumped at the door. You have to put them on, etc. terrible I emaker and no trays to make your own. 4 chairs on deck for a house that sleeps 8+. Kitchen is a half step down, so major fall risk and the island is your table. Pool guy didn't come mid week, we had to add water to pool so the filter would not burn up. Cleaning toothbrush left in upstairs mirror. That was disgusting. Bed is very uncomfortable in upstairs queen that has the lounge chairs. We will not rent this again nor will we use this company.

Reviewer Comments:

Great Area, Great Beach, but house was run down, needs updating, dirty kitchen pots and pans, has a very odd lay out. Also, the deck boards were sticking up and people were tripping over them, and the deck gate fell off, luckily no one was hurt. Carolina Shores was easy to work with and professional but they need to remove this rental, it is not up to par.

Reviewer Comments:

MEFS is exactly the kind of place we'd been looking for. Being a smaller family with a smaller budget and a dog makes it challenging to find a house that is oceanfront. This house is quirky and "cozy", and we loved it. Perhaps the best aspect is how much "stuff" has been provided and/or left behind. We could have packed 1/3 as much (pans, blankets, hand soap, games, etc). Can't wait to go back!

Reviewer Comments:

The pictures of this house are very misleading. There is no point of having an oceanfront house if you have to climb "jockey's ridge " to get to it. There are serious electrical problems. The front stove burner sparked several times when it worked. The upstairs outlet in the left master sparked. We left it unplugged, didn't feel safe having it plugged in. Several lamps don't work. Left master shower leaks water everywhere. This has been going on for sometime, the floor is rotted out. The pool was the nicest thing about this house. We have been coming to OBX for 20 years and this is the worse house we have ever stayed in. Very disappointed to spend that amount of money for oceanfront and have to walk 2 houses down to for the beach access. We would have spent less and still walked the same distance and had a better house.
