Peaceful and happy place for a couple or small family

  • 3 of 5

First the positives: nice floor plan, good views, wonderful covered porch; fun kayaks with easy access into the water; good dock with seat; good grill and all necessary kitchen items. Also good was the air conditioning. The house is only a few miles from Buxton seafood market [where we bought fresh shrimp and fish] as well as other stores and restaurants and, of course, the beach. the quiet subdivision is nice for evening walks without traffic.

Then the negatives: beds are horrible - haven't slept on a mattress without box springs since college days. The pots and pans are pretty chewed up. Now, it is the end of summer so perhaps the pans are due for a replacement. Also, there are only 2 chairs on the deck so if you are a larger family, you need to bring your own porch furniture.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. You are the first guest who has felt the beds were uncomfortable.. The mattress are high quality and are relatively new. We do need to do a summer ends evaluation of the kitchen supplies which we do each year. I will look into more chairs for the deck. I hope you enjoyed the stay. We love it there.

Perfect Summer Cottage Vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

The Reel Fun Cottage was the perfect place for our vacation with our grand-kids. It is located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Loved the location on the canal and enjoyed kayaking, fishing and crabbing on the dock. Owners responded to our text immediately, they take good care of the cottage and their renters!! All Kayaks in great condition, I was able to use my own paddle board and paddle to the sound!! The cottage is conveniently located close to the beaches on both the ocean and sound side Cape Hatteras, Buxton and Ocracoke Island. Pet Friendly, very comfortable, and well equipped cottage, if I could I'd love to spend a month here!! Thank You for sharing your cottage with us!!

We really enjoyed staying here.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and are going to stay there again this year. just some little stuff like light of the back of the house for nights and the tree in the drive way trimmed so we can back are truck in so we do not have to take our fishing rods every time we get back form the beach. We love every thing else about the house. Can not wait for this year. Thank you

Reel Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was reel fun! We stayed there mid September 2015, the weather was absolutely gorgeous! The location worked wonderfully for myself and my husband along with our dog to explore Hatteras Island. We utilized the kayaks at the cottage to venture out in the canal which is right outside the back door. Of course, we visited probably every beach up and down route 12 from Rodanthe to Hatteras and this cottage was centrally located for doing just that. It was a relaxing time and the owner was fabulous to work with, she answered all my questions and did so in a timely manner. The cottage is clean and well kept, plenty of stock in the kitchen to work with for cooking your own meals. If and when we venture back that way we would most definitely stay at this rental again!

one week renters

  • 4 of 5

very nice cottage....nice decor......well equipped....owners responded to our text immediately(which was appreciated) all Kayaks in great condition..owners extremely friendly and helpful!

would be nice to have a indoor brown just to sweep up...during stay

the only suggestions-pretain to out door shower-- we prefer to shower outdoors..the shower was a bit cramped .(small in size) place to key towel dry/or to change; also did not provide for full privacy ( for tall people)!It would be nice to have stepping stones/or concrete that led to outdoor shower.....instead of going thru garage and or walking on sand in shower area*housekeeping needs to remember to clean outside shower(remove stuff left from previous renters) LABELING LIGHT SWITCHES WOULD BE HELPFUL AND ENERGY EFFICEINT...WE LOVED THE NEW DECK...WOULD DEFINETLY RENT THIS COTTAGE AGAIN ....FOR 2 WEEKS
