Why Jeff Lewis chose Hatteras Island

We fell in love with the quality of the construction of EASTWIND as well as its waterfront location. Sunsets are truly memorable.

Bringing in 2017

  • 5 of 5

Like many rental properties, there are some nicks and dings to the house but beyond that the house was great for our needs. Gathered our 2 adult children and their families for a NY Eve weekend. Nice open floor plan and plenty of space for 6 adults and 3 children. The view of the sound is awesome. If this were a summer trip we'd have a boat along and Teaches' Lair Marina is less than 20 miles down the road. Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. Happy 2017.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house, one of my favorites over many years of vacationing on the coast. It is laid out well for a mixture of privacy and sociability. The kitchen is one of the best equipped that I have seen in many years of staying in "cottages" on the OBX. We had a couple of issues and called the local contacts, who were extremely quick and responsive. They even put in a new dishwasher while we were there! Other issues were addressed as well. // The launch is great for windsurfing. We liked the hooks in the cart port for hanging sails. This was our first VRBO. It was easy enough, but I did not like the computer interface very much and didn't use the smart phone possibility.

Great venue for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Eastwind was an outstanding venue for our family vacation. The property was well-maintained and provided my family with many options of entertainment. This is an annual event for my family and it provided us with a very memorable experience. We had gorgeous sunsets over the sound, easy access to the ocean, kayaking, and other activities local to the area. We enjoyed family dinner at Dinky’s as well as the shops and restaurants of Ocracoke. Everyone enjoyed the ferry ride to Ocracoke.

As for customer service, Betty was our contact for any issues that would arise in the property and she was outstanding. She provided us with information regarding any question or issue that we had. She was pleasant and prompt.

We have stayed at a number of beach houses in this area but this is easily the best fit for us. This is the first time that we stayed on the sound and it did not disappoint. The layout of the property fit my family well and the amenities were perfect. Everyone had an enjoyable vacation. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great family vacation at the beach. The Outer Banks has so much to offer in this property epitomizes the area.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at East Wind. We had 6 adults and 4 teenagers and had more the enough room for everyone. The views were beautiful and sitting on the deck at night watching the wind surfers was wonderful. We did not use the community pool often because our group wanted to be at the beach. The walk to the beach was a little further then we thought but doable with older kids that can carry things. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants peace and quiet. We have stayed in he 4x4 section and loved it there and wanted to try something further south and it was very nice. We will be returning.
