About Diana Rondinelli
We are a blended family - Vic is from Bluefield, WV, and Diana is from Newport News, VA. They joined forces in 1989 with their 6 children. And survived - to now enjoy 11 grandchildren. And all of them LOVE this home!
Diana Rondinelli purchased this House in 2004
Why Diana Rondinelli chose Tuckahoe
Diana grew up vacationing in OBX - and Vic came to love the place when he visited in 1975. And neither of us ever lost our love for the beach, the towns, the people. We own two homes currently - and had another one that we sold in 1989. We will always have a home on the Outer Banks of NC!
What makes this House unique
It is just the most relaxing place - and when you read the guest book and the wonderful words written about our home away from home - you will understand. The rocking chairs on the deck - the screened in porch - and the great kitchen with the tiki-bar. It just felt like home the first time we walked in the door.

All the way around great!
Great house with perfect location. There were 6 of us - my wife and I, our recently graduated college daughter and her roommate and our youngest 2 sons (11 & 14) and it was our first trip to the Outer Banks. We all had a great time. The house has more than enough room for us all to sit and be together and play games or have some moments of solitude. The location, was ideal, couple minutes to the beach or the sound. The beach was great and exceptionally clean. The sound we went to a few different times but only once at sunset - our last night there. It was absolutely stunning, wish we would've gone earlier in our stay. The location in relation to the rest of the island was great too - very nice residential area with a very quaint commecrial center full of great restaurants and shops. Far nicer than the overly commercial areas of Kitty hawk and kill devil hills but still close enough to enjoy the amenities offered there with a short and simple drive. We went to Hatteras for the charter fishing (awesome experience on the Carolinian). Further we went to a fantastic casual place right on the water in Nags Head called Fish heads (fresh and simple seafood menu, great draft selection, very relaxed atmosphere with fantastic servers).
We went out as much as we stayed in and when we stayed in, we made great meals and had a great time playing games around the huge kitchen table or sitting on the upper balcony relaxing and talking. Whenever we had a question or need the owners were very prompt in replying. Oh and the pool was absolutely perfect to cool off without the all the planning and packing (and clean up)required of the beach.
In short a great vacation for all (no small feat for the diverse ages we had). I'll definitely be planning to come back at our earliest opportunity and will be sharing this property with friends and family for their vacation.
We are so happy when folks enjoy our cottage! It truly is La Dolce Vita - to us, too! We try to keep everything handy that a group of people will need and enjoy while visiting OBX. Thanks for the awesome review, Dane! Come again, anytime!
Good location, clean, a lot of space, enough parking, house has everything you may need including kitchen, entertainment, games for kids, etc. Diana is very helpful and super quick to response.
Exactly What we were hoping for!!
Wow, the owner was SO helpful answering questions and making us feel very welcome. Great location with easy access to the ocean and the sound. Our trip was a birthday celebration and fit the whole family very comfortably. With 2 living spaces plus the 2 decks we had plenty of room to spread out and the upper kitchen/dining/living area was big enough for all 11 of us to come together and hang out!! Over all a great place and AMAZING vacation!
We had a lovely weekend! We had everything we needed at the house and the location was perfect! Thank you so much
Great location, amenities and comfortable
We had a great time at The Sweet Life II!!! My four year old son loved the kid's room and the "yellow house" as he called it. The pool is a stone's throw away and it's a nice, clean and well kept pool...we had it to ourselves whenever we went since it was the week of Labor Day. The town of Duck is one mile away and we loved the boardwalk, the pizza place, watching the sunset and while we didn't have time this time, we love walking around Scarborough Fair. We went to the H2OBX waterpark the last day it was open for the season and it is amazing! We had so much fun and it is really great for all ages. The beach is a short drive or ten minute walk from the house (15 with a child!) and it was a great section of beach...clean and less crowded than the Nags Head area. We have always stayed in Kill Devil Hills or Salvo but discovered we really love this area. The house has all we need and while the beds aren't like a memory foam matress at a five star hotel, they are clean and comfy and I slept well. The layout of the house is perfect and the seating is comfortable too. We LOVED our time and will be back! Thank you for an amazing trio!
July at the beach
We enjoyed our stay at The Sweet Life II. A very easy walk to the beach and a very easy drive to many different interesting sites in the surrounding area. We had additional family renting a house in the same community so the living spaces in the house were spacious enough to accommodate a large group. Traffic can be very heavy but the town of Duck is a short walk or bike ride away. We golfed at a number of local courses and all were in good shape. Nags Head Golf links was a favorite.
The town of Duck is less than 5 min drive - first you will see an art gallery, awesome shopping and restaurants. Further down Duck Road you will find wind surfing, jet skis, etc - lots of fun for everyone! Another 10 -15 min and you can see the wild horses in Corova! Take a chance - you will enjoy the drive. And if you go 'the other way' - back to Kitty Hawk - there is even more fun waiting. Fishing piers, shopping, restaurants, miniature golf, etc. You will love it!
