Great House with plenty of space.

  • 4 of 5

The open floor plan is great, we were vacationing with family staying at another location and were able to have 13 people in the home and not feel overcrowded.

The house is spacious and very comfortable, and we loved the deck overlooking the canal. It was a short paddle out to the sound for some fishing.

There are a few minor issues: The garage door is really flimsy and hard to open. Also, there are no gutters on the house so when it rains the runoff from the roof falls directly on the steps going up to the deck which is the main entrance to the house. Minor things and we would definitely stay again.

Excellent Week at Reel Fun

  • 5 of 5

The house and location were great for an excellent week at the Outer Banks. Had everything we needed, beds were very comfortable, and very easy process to check in and check out. We were very satisfied and will definitely consider renting this house again next year!

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

Nearest Ferry
10 Miles
The ferry at oakacroke is about 10 miles south.
Nearest Beach
3 Miles
Head south on Rt 12 and beach is 3 miles on left,
Car: necessary

The house is located in a lovely neighborhood that is private and safe! The nearest Beach entrance is 3 miles south.The ability to kayak from the back yard into the sound offers a wonderful sunset that is breathtaking. There are great resturants close by. Wind surfing is huge in the area and of coarse the fishing is excellent!
