The Perfect Vacation Home
Our family has been vacationing in the Outer Banks for over 20 years. We usually stay somewhere between Duck and Nags Head. This was our first time staying in Buxton. We live in the Washington DC area and we weren’t sure that we wanted to drive that extra hour past Nags Head but we were really drawn to the photos of the house and how beautiful it looked and after reading all the 5 star reviews we knew had to go. The house was exactly how it looked in the photos. It was beautifully decorated; the color scheme was very pleasing and it was just a short walk to the beach. Jessica was an amazing host. We had a 6 hour drive so we left early to beat traffic. Since we had our 2 dogs with us, Jessica was kind enough to let us stay in the backyard and hang out by the pool until the house was ready. That was a huge favor for us since we weren’t familiar with the area after the long car ride, the dogs really needed a space to run around. During the week, Jessica checked in with us to see if we needed anything. The house had everything we needed so we were fortunate that we didn’t have to ask Jessica for anymore favors. The house was very clean and the kitchen was very well stocked with all the cooking utensils and small appliances that you would ever need. They did not skimp on the large appliances either. The dishwasher cleaned the dishes really well and the washer and dryer made me envious that I didn’t have them for my own home. The backyard and pool was so nicely furnished and pretty that we spent a lot of time out there. We had more than enough space for the 9 of us - mostly grown children and teens. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and it was perfect. The beds were very comfortable and each room was beautifully decorated. This was the first time that we did not go through a rental agency to rent a home in the Outer Banks. I felt that the service was on a much more personal level and that Jessica and her family took a lot of pride in the appearance and care of their home. Because of the house, its proximity to the beach and Jessica’s personal touch, we had the best and most relaxed vacation we’ve had in a long time. Buxton is our new favorite place and we hope to have the opportunity to stay at the Jetty Cottage again.
A wonderful property! Would highly recommend to families!
Perfect vacation home!
We loved jetty cottage. Very neat, beautifully decorated with the largest and nicest outdoor furniture of any vacation home we have encountered. The pool was clean and while we elected to heat it I think most people would have been fine at this time of year without the heat. We just like it extra warm! Hot tub was nice too. The rooms were perfect and the steps in the home were minimal compared to most very tall houses in the area! It was very easy to get groceries and souvenirs within less than a mile. We had peek a boo views of the ocean and a great view of the lighthouse. I was surprised by the wonderful breeze and I was able to sit outside on the shaded deck and have coffee and read while others slept in. En-suite bathrooms in 5 bedrooms and each with a TV made it easy to have privacy and time out which is important with multi family sharing a home for a week! I would definitely recommend jetty cottage and the Buxton area which seems more authentic OBX than some of the busier touristy towns to the north. Jessica was absolutely wonderful to meet and answered every text I had prior to our visit. She obviously wants to provide the best experience for her guests. Thank you Jessica!
Great family vacation!
We loved the Jetty Cottage! The kitchen is BY FAR the most well-stocked vacation house we've ever rented! My husband and I, and our 4 adult children and their spouses enjoyed the house and the pool very much. Everyone had their own bathroom, which was really really nice. We took turns cooking dinner and everyone really enjoyed all the amenities in the kitchen as well as the grill! The washer and dryer are huge and really nice. That came in very handy for clothes and towels.
Our family had two children, a 6 year old and a 5 month old. The high chair and crib was really helpful. And the placement of the crib, quiet upstairs helped when we were up late laughing it up. One bad thing is the upstairs bedroom also had a little daybed which would have been good for our 6 year old grandson, but he was with his parents downstairs. The baby belonged to the couple sleeping upstairs. Anyway, we needed an extension cord for the baby monitor and I texted Jessica and she brought it over before bedtime. Very nice of her.
The Pool was awesome and it was a lot of fun. Just the right size and the amount of chairs out by the pool was very much appreciated! The neighbors seem to be locals, and were very nice.
Two things to make sure people know about this house. There are a lot of steps! You enter the house on the lower level, three bedrooms on the lowest level. Then a flight up to the kitchen, living room and another bedroom. Then top level is the master suite with daybed and crib. From the kitchen, you walk down steps to the pool. There is a slider into one of the bedrooms on the lowest level, but to get to the other bedrooms on the lower level, you need to walk up the steps to the kitchen, then walk down the steps to the other bedrooms. That was kind of a pain, especially for older folks. It would have been better to have the slider into the billiard room on the lowest level. But that was really the only bad thing about this house!!
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about our home. Just to confirm for anyone looking to book for 2020, we are adding a door from the game room to the pool deck. Also, most vacation homes have the great room and kitchen on the 3rd top floor which makes for ALOT of stairs, but ours is actually on the mid-level 2nd floor making it a lot more manageable actually :) We put the day bed in the top floor master because it has the room for it. We do have a queen sized sofa sleeper in the first floor game room, right outside one of the bedrooms there for anyone needing extra sleeping capacity near a bedroom. Thank you for choosing Jetty Cottage. We truly care about each guest and have tried very hard to provide the best amenities :)
Jetty Cottage is clean and adorable!! It is a little hike to the beach, but there is a beach cart at the house.
Thank you staying at Jetty Cottage! For potential guests reading this, we do provide a heavy duty beach cart to make carrying items to and from the beach a little easier. In no other review has anyone referred to it as a "hike" though, I'm sorry. I wouldn't want that to deter anyone as you don't have to cross highway 12 like some other oceanside locations and the neighborhood is very quaint. ALSO! The park service is building a parking area at the end of the road with easy beach access and even a wheelchair accessible rubber walkway. For the guests I've been so lucky to meet at our store, they tell me that once they hit our pool area, they never want to leave so the beach is an after-thought :)
Jetty Cottage is within a 2-3 minute walk to the best beaches on Hatteras Island, perfect for relaxing, fishing, surfing, shell hunting and playing in the sand. You can even see the beautiful light sweep across the sky at night from the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Buxton village offers restaurants, shopping, ice cream, putt-putt and fun for all ages!
