Keep looking

  • 1 of 5

We have rented with VRBO for years but this one was a disappointment. Google the street address so you can see the busy street the house rests on - trash trucks at nearby businesses wake the house at 4-5 a.m. most mornings. Don't plan to use the kayaks unless your vehicle is big enough to transport them. Kittyhawk Bay is nearby but not walkable with the kayaks. The ocean is a good drive and you will jockey for parking. The house wasn't well-cleaned before arrival, so build in time for that. There was someone else's men's underwear under the bed where our child had to sleep. Dining chairs are stained - we covered them with towels for the week. Water filter in the fridge had expired before we arrived so no ice by mid-week. If you prefer privacy, note that the master bath has a sliding door that does not cover the doorway - inches worth of a gap on either side.

Great house with plenty of space !

  • 5 of 5

House is very spacious and clean. Open floor plan and amenities are great! Wish that we had the entire family but we had a few last minute cancellations . It was too much house for just myself and two daughters ! However , I would book again with a larger group !

The nicest beach house I've ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to describe how nice Heels & Reels is -- it is obviously a home rather than a house. Goldie was great to deal with according to my wife (she did the communicating) and the cleanliness of the house and facilities were WAY beyond my expectations -- and I have stayed at rental houses at the beach all but 6 years since 1985. Unreal accommodations and amenities. I HIGHLY recommend this house and Goldie to anyone wanting a week away!

Excellent Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Heels and Reels is a lovely, comfortable, ideally located home with easily accessible owners should a particular need arise. (None did.) The home offers both ample space for family gatherings as well as areas to which one can retreat for privacy. Beaches, The Wright Brothers Memorial and good restaurants are nearby. Cape Hatteras is only a hour's drive away. Our family of six adults, spanning three generations, agreed that this is a five star location. RDR
