Beautiful house with wonderful views!

  • 4 of 5

This house is absolutely gorgeous!!! It has been renovated rather well and is so so spacious. We had 14 people with 5 of them being children 2-10 years old. There was plenty of opportunity to separate all the "noise" from the children given the different levels with different amenities on each level. The beach is a very quick and easy walk (maybe a true 5 min walk) from the house and the pool is obviously on site. My only complaint with the pool is that the temperature was rather chilly (not heated) and our stay was at the end of september. The hot tub is covered, so even if the weather isn't perfect, it doesn't matter, the hot tub is still an option! The theater room was wonderful as well! We watched zootopia one evening together with all the kids! I will definitely say that due to the location, there is not much around in terms of restaurants and places to go without driving 30+ minutes down the one lane road. However, it does force you to relax, which is just perfect in my opinion! We made a trip to the Bodie Island light house, which is a must see, and we went to the Jockey's Ridge Sand Dunes, which was amazing to see as well! The light house I will add does charge for entering and kids have to be 42" to go up. Great place to stay!! Great owners as well, Dale was a dream to deal with!

Fantastic week in August 2016

  • 5 of 5

The Sand Doodle was a beautiful and one of the best equipped houses we have stayed in, and we have used VRBO for many years and in different locations. The owners were so helpful and cooperative in everything we asked. The house was very clean, attractive and comfortable. We used every room and the pool! The view from the top floor and decks was amazing. Great to watch a storm coming in.We were a group of 16 ranging from age 75 to 6 and we all had a great time. There was plenty of space to get away from everyone if you chose to but ampley big to all be together for dinner up on the main floor. The young adults especially liked the Tiki Bar at night. Thanks Dale and Ethel. We would definitely come back.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Although we didn't have the best weather, this house was great. Having the outdoor bar and hot tub area covered made it so we could still go outside even in the rain. It would be nice to have entry to house from the pool area! This house has eveything you need as far as dishes sheets towels ! The gameroom was so fun! Close to the beach. The beach cart was great! We loved the bikes too! The owner is really nice! And very easy to work with! Only recommendation would be that the place needs deep cleaned and swept better.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little nervous to be vacationing with 4 families, 9 children ranging from 2-6 years old, but this house made it possible. Roomy enough to find privacy, but with large enough common spaces we could all hang out together. The pool area was a huge hit with kids and grown ups.

The house is clean, well stocked and conveniently located. We really, really loved it. The elevator was a HUGE plus!!

Thanks so much for everything, Dale! We hope to come back to Sandoodle again.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just finished a great week in this beautiful,clean, and spacious home. With the beach just a short walk away, and Rodanthe Pier, offering great fishing makes Sand Doodle a perfect family vacation home. Everything needed, was provided, pool and hot tub, game room, kept the adults as well as children happy and satisfied. The elevator was a blessing for unloading and loading the car. View of ocean and sound side just added to this splendid vacation home, we will definitely make plans for a return visit. All were very well pleased. Bruce
