We have that, too - the 20' x 40' pool is certain to be an added bonus to your vacation (for registered guests only). Enjoy the fantastic view of the ocean and the pool from the covered observation tower or the screen-enclosed porch - both have built-in picnic tables for 'dining out' and just enjoying your time of relaxation.

(Seriously, does anyone really iron while on vacation???) Enclosed outside shower plus a hose on front of house for a quick 'foot-wash' coming back from the beach and for keeping the bay-windows hosed off to enable the best view of the ocean, etc. WI-FI for your convenience. Paved parking area. We have a Grayco Pack-N-Play for the little one. Weekly rentals from Sunday 4PM to Sunday 10AM. Linens not provided but available locally from rental companies. See FAQ for more info and details. This is emailed to you when you select CONTACT THE OWNER. You will be very glad you selected this home for your vacation. We have numerous families who return every year and we'd love to add your name to that list. ENJOY! Sorry, this is a 'no-pet' home & smoking not permitted indoors. Thanks for your compliance.

Why Mike Drake chose Sea Retreat

Our family owns several homes in the Outer Banks. WE ALL LOVE IT HERE! We hope you'll return to Betcha Like It every summer.

What makes this house unique

Great restaurants, movies theatre is close by, shopping is a must, and we just like sitting and looking at the ocean. Sooo relaxing! Everybody's first stop at OBX is to stock up at Food Lion or Harris Teater and you are right between Wal-Mart and K-Mart. FANTASTIC!!

I wasn't able to get on the app they had sent for details on trip. Not knowing rules about linens.

  • 2 of 5

Wasn't notified it was a community pool or it would be closed when we got there. That was very disappointing. The house was nice but the AC decided to quit on us when the hurricane winds came through. The side window was leaking when the rain came. The furniture could use a scrubbing.

Other homes we stayed at provided linens so we were caught off guard. The pool looks like its private on the web site. ITS NOT!

Besides all that... it is a lovely home. Just check the rules and dates for the pool.

The best part was time with relatives!

Great proximity to the beach!

  • 3 of 5

We loved the tower, the pool and the beach being so close. The house was a little dated, cramped and dark downstairs. One small thing that bugged me/us was that there was only seating for 7 people at the table, there wer 8 of us. I am guessing that a chair was broken? It was clean, but too much stuff everywhere . It was the most expensive beach house we ever rented so perhaps our expectations were out of line?...

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as advertised and our party of 4 had a wonderful time. Access to the beach being directly across the street made it easy for even the old couple with bad knees to enjoy the sun and surf. We would not hesitate to reserve this property again in the future.
