Great house for split family!

  • 5 of 5

The location is great with easy access to groceries, beach, shopping, restaurants. The best aspect was that with two different families the house worked perfect and it didn't feel like we were living on top of each other. Our second time in the OBX and it just keeps getting better!

Great home, location and owner!

  • 5 of 5

Great home that was even more lovely than we expected! Layout perfect for our two small families. With a 1 year old we very much appreciated the home being so clean and well maintained. Nicole was very responsive and answered any questions we had. We loved our time in OBX and will recommend this property to others as well as look forward to another stay soon!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We were at the OBX for Jeep Mutiny 4 and the house was in a spectacular location for this event. Close to everything and plenty of room in the driveway for 2 jeeps.

Good house, good location. Bit of a hard time with the owner.

  • 3 of 5

The property was good, location was good and we enjoyed our stay despite an interesting interaction with the owner. This was our first VRBO stay. After booking online (which included the security deposit), the owner updated the price (removed the security deposit amount) and asked for security deposit payment by check. Apparently this is standard for the owner and they tear up the check after the stay. We had just arrived in the US and didn’t have a check book yet (it also seemed odd to us as nobody outside the US uses checks any more). We paid the updated price on VRBO and figured we would be able to do an online transfer of some sort for the security deposit. I forgot about the security deposit until driving the 5 hours down to Nags Head. We contacted the owner and, after some insolence, were eventually able pay via PayPal and get access to the house. We left the house in good condition (with more supplies than we arrived to) and after an inquiry got most of the deposit back. The owner subtracted a 3 percent fee that PayPal apparently charged the owner (PayPal assured me they took no fee, but they may have). I’m not worried about the money, however I would consider it the cost of doing business as an owner. I was actually just happy to get most of my deposit back and conclude the interaction with the owner.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to read this but not surprised. Yes- for almost 13years we have rented our lovely home and had zero issue with someone “understanding” the expectation of sending a check for the security deposit. Additionally, most people are very grateful to not have the credit card charged and then refunded. It seems you don’t agree and that is certainly your right. That said- you went to check into our home WITHOUT ever mentioning you couldn’t send a check for the security deposit. You AGREED to the rental policy so I had no way of knowing you would wait until the day you check in to let me know differently. You were one of the most difficult renters to work with and then setting off the security alert while there multiple times. I too am glad this interaction is over.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

An easy walk to the beach and an adorable house. We liked the front deck and the beach buggy made life super easy w 4 kids. The house did not have many start up items such as D/W detergent, dish soap, dish towels, aluminum foil, or hand soap but we added some to the house when we left. Nice beach chairs but umbrella was broken. Dryer wasn't working for us, either. Great house for the price.

Owner's Response: Glad you found our home as adorable as we do & no doubt the location is the best! Renters are always super grateful for the beach cart to everything anyone "might need" on the beach. As listed in our rental agreement, start up items are just that- start up items. They are enough for you the first day but we don't supply those items for the duration. Dryer unfortunately got overloaded & broke the belt- but all fixed now & working great! Thanks for taking the time to review our lovely home.

Four generations enjoyed Sea & Sun this past week!

  • 5 of 5

Roomy, open kitchen and family room were perfect for our group ranging in age from 8 months to 80! The semi-wrap-around deck was nice too. My mom did her watercolor painting out there every day. Kitchen was very well equipped. The beach cart was a lifesaver for all the stuff we lugged to the beach every day. Easy stroll to the beach on a smooth sidewalk accessible just across from the cottage. Busy intersection at the Beach Road and 8th Street though, even with a pedestrian crosswalk. Drivers were supposed to stop if people were waiting to cross. Most didn't. Maybe a blinking light would help. Great family beach cottage!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $85
Refundable damage deposit $250

We have a very strict NO PET and NO SMOKING policy for our home and we hold a fully refundable security deposit of $250 to ensure this rule is followed. We ask this amount be sent in a separate check and we shred the check once our cleaning staff has come through. This has only been an issue twice in almost 12 years of sharing our lovely home with others. We find that renters care for our home while staying there recognizing the love we have put into it.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
