Our stay was absolutely perfect! The rental was extremely clean, cozy, beautiful, and had everything we could possibly need. I would highly recommend this property for your visit to the Outer Banks!!!

So well done!

  • 5 of 5

Janis is a great host. He and his wife have taken a lot of time to make this a really nice place. The decor is so nice and relaxing. I was concerned about it not being a full kitchen, but the things they have supplied (hot plate, toaster oven, grill, a closet full of little appliances) made our two meals at the retreat our favorite. We bought a clam bake (HIGHLY recommend) and filets. This place is really nice. The dock is part of the neighborhood and there is a key to access that and also beach access across the street. This place is private, but not secluded if that makes sense? The family lives right above you and it is a neighborhood, but we hardly ever saw anyone else. You can hear the pitter-patter of their little one run across the floor-this was not a bother to us at all. The outside area has a nice hot tub, good chairs in a covered area with Bluetooth/radio, an outside shower, bikes, beach chairs etc. It was an easy bike ride into Duck and you can walk or drive or ride bikes to the beach and sound. Sunsets on the sound are amazing. Janis is really easy to work with-available and helpful, but also leaves you to your vacation. Highly recommend this place.

Couples Retreat was just what we needed! We enjoyed our week and the weather was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best vacation we had in a long time. The accommodations were great, we had everything we needed and more. Janis and his wife had put a great deal of time and thought into furnishing their rental. It was so clean and beautifully decorated. At the end of the day, it was like going back home in Pa. Very comfortable and relaxing. We will be going back again. LOVED THIS PLACE!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Couples Retreat apartment was a terrific place to stay. Janis and Silga, the owners, are very sweet and have gone above and beyond to make sure visitors have a great Outer Banks vacation. The location is ideal--just about a mile to downtown Duck which has lots of shops, restaurants, and a cool boardwalk along the Currituck Sound. The apartment is on the ground floor, and it's quiet, comfortable, tastefully decorated, and immaculately clean. You can walk to the Sound in about 2 minutes and get some good photos of a pretty sunset. There's a ton of fun stuff to do in Outer Banks, and you will love staying at the Couples Retreat. When you visit, make sure you stop in "Try My Nuts" in Duck and buy their White Trash. It's pricey, but oh my gosh, it's so good!

Very Enjoyable Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband stayed at Janis's place the last week of August and it was very pleasant. We got there a bit earlier than expected but the room was ready and he was out to greet us. He was very sweet and gave us all of the information we needed to know and advised me if we had any questions he was always a call or text away. He provided us with everything and I do mean everything...beach chairs, umbrella, bikes, towels, dish soap, utensils, blue tooth at the hot tub so we could listen to music streamed from our phones. We had everything we needed and more. And it was so quiet and the beach and sound were only a short distance away. It was truly the perfect getaway for us. It was our first time vising the OBX and we will be back again for sure.
