Great Property and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family and pups. The kids enjoyed fishing from the doc and the gated porch was great for our pups to sunbath. Even though Hurricane Maria chased us away from a few days- it was a wonderful trip. The owner was responsive and helpful during the entire stay -even while we were evacuated.

As a note to other VRBO'ers- the insurance they offer through CSA is only trip cancellation insurance- not trip interruption insurance so it expires once you check in. Lesson learned on my end as my evacuation wasn't covered since we check into the property- but the house and owners are great!

A wonderful, peaceful week on the sound in a very comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this cottage in Hatteras. The house was very pleasant and comfortable! It was well stocked in the kitchen, which was great because we cooked quite a lot of fresh seafood, including some blue crabs we caught off the dock by the house. Make sure to bring your own towels and definitely bug spray (mosquitoes are just part of life at the beach). There are 4 kayaks (1 is kid-sized I think) at the house, and we made good use of those. Paddling in the canal is easy and fun, and you can go out in the sound too, though there is a bit more current and wind out there depending on the time and conditions. I really feel that this is a unique property and that you gain a lot more by being on the sound side in the outer banks. There aren't so many sound-side homes for rent, and we specifically chose this one for the kayaks and good fishing! You don't really need to be beach front in the outer banks, as the beach is only a stones throw away, especially in this area where there is the undeveloped National Seashore (you can get total privacy there; it's awesome)! Overall, we had a wonderful time here, and there were no big inconveniences with the house. Also worth noting is that this place is pet friendly, which is a huge plus for us and the furry member of our family. :)

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!

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!
