McHenry IL (45 minutes NW of Chicago)

A comfortable home with excellent views of the sound and sunset

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five along with my sister's family of four stay was very spacious and enjoyable. The house was super clean and had everything we needed for a great, relaxing week in the OBX. The fridge downstairs turned out to be quite convenient and a full bath in each bedroom was exactly what we (the girls) needed. A little cleaner pool, a colder kitchen fridge and higher quality living room furniture would have earned this home five stars. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to save money vs. staying right on the beach.

Best view of the sound!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in the heart of Waves, NC. Local stores and restaurants are just short walks or bike rides away from this perfect location. Park your car for the week and enjoy the pathway that runs from one end of town to the other. The home owner is very helpful and responsive. The house is nicely furnished, comfortable and well-maintained. Great place to stay!

Great place for a vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful and a very relaxing place for our family vacation. Being on the sound side we always saw a great sunset every evening. The house was big enough for my entire family and we never felt crowded. It was in a great location and contained many extras that other houses did not provide. My children and the rest of my family appreciated the paddle boards, kayaks, and basketball hoop that was part of our house rental. I would highly recommend this house if you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing but entertaining, vacation.

Great family week at the beach

  • 4 of 5

Our family (14 of us) had a great week at Sound Retreat in Waves, NC. Three floors with elevator, swimming pool enjoyed by all the kids (big and little), well equipped kitchen with fairly new appliances, great views of the sound. Management staff were responsive to our inquiries. Food shop across the street for those last-minute items. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Our last night there we celebrated with a low country boil purchased from a nearby seafood shop (they even steamed it for us and had it waiting at the appointed pickup time). Nice beaches (especially enjoyed the life-guarded beach about 45 minutes south at the lighthouse park). Wrights Brothers Museum was a 45 minute drive north and well-worth the visit.

Thanks for a great week in this nice property.

About David Filippini

I'm a Navy veteran from San Diego, and a graduate of the US Naval Academy . I've lived all over California from the Bay area to Ventura county, and lived in several states including Texas and Illinois. My wife was born in Wisconsin, grew up north of Chicago, but is a Wisconsin Badger Engineer, with a UCLA MBA.

David Filippini purchased this cottage in 2010

Why David Filippini chose Waves

We bought this property out of foreclosure after looking for over 2 years. The house provided us an opportunity to put our own touches on it because it was completely emptied out of furniture and all appliances. We removed all carpeting and replaced all the flooring with bamboo and oak. The kitchen was upgraded with solid quartz counter-tops and new cabinets. All the appliances and furniture have been installed within the last two years. We made this a house we love to stay at ourselves, and we think others will too.

What makes this cottage unique

The Outer Banks of North Carolina is magical. I urge people to visit there even if you don't stay at this property. Places like this are disappearing and may soon be gone forever. This area is different than the Jersey Shore, Myrtle Beach, the Gulf Coast etc. Most of Hatteras is a National Seashore Park and protected wildlife habitat. The beaches are wild and unguarded, and you can still walk for a mile on one without seeing another person. Give the Outer Banks a try, you may end up coming back year after year like a lot of other people
