Guestbook comments from the owner

"We've stayed in Laughing Gull-6 for four years--enjoying the quite and private location close to the ocean and many restaurants. The cottage is well appointed with everything needed for a restful and enjoyable vacation. The new owners have added several upgrades—new flooring, kitchen,TV’s. etc. The new interior, pictures and furniture are a true OBX experience. We are already looking forward to our time at LG-6 this Fall. – LeRoys (Sterling, VA.) and Bakers (Georgetown, KY.)."

Great Cottage on the Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know our family had a wonderful time at your cottage last week! It has such a great feel and energy, and we all felt instantly right at home. Thank you for the gift basket – I love candles and chocolate so that was a nice little surprise to see when we got upstairs. The proximity to the market and restaurants was great – and we loved the little stretch of beach we called home for the week! Sitting on the top deck for coffee in the mornings and checking out the stars at night were a favorite for us!! Got to know some of the neighbors and after a couple of days starting seeing familiar faces on the beach. Dogs had a great time too!

Overall excellent experience – we’d love to rent the Surf Shack 6 sometime again in the future.

Thank you!!

Quite paradise

  • 4 of 5

This property is one of 8 homes, built as mirror images. The Surf Shack 6, is second from the beach. It's a two minute walk over the dune stairs and your there. Beach is beautiful & not crowded. The home is older , but maintained well. Gen even leaves you a welcome present. There where a few minor issues with the home , but Gen took care of it ASAP. Couldn't ask for a better landlord! Great weather, great house, = great vacation! Recommend and hope to be back! Don from New Jersey

It was absolutely perfect for our family and dogs

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the old throwback beach style cottage. It was perfectly located near the beach just over the dune and had a beautiful view of the ocean from the crow's nest. There was 6 of us plus our 2 white golden retrievers who stayed comfortably in the cottage. We really enjoyed the location and the dog friendly beach. The property had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The TVs even had cable and the MASN network so we could even watch the Nationals play. Overall a great vacation with no complaints. We would recommend to anyone and would stay again.

Great house almost right on the beach (several yards away and nice decks and views), great location!

  • 4 of 5

Nice rooms, convenient layout. This is a classic and 'older' style place -- not a McMansion but with modern touches including TV, kitchen, baths. Outside shower is the best old touch. A little wear and tear on fridge and hose bib did not substantially detract from our big enthusiasm for this place.

A beach dream

  • 5 of 5

What a delight it was to stay at this property. I was on the beach in 30 seconds in my bare feet. The house was roomy and provided a fabulous view from the crows nest.. The decor was charming and the location was perfect! It was my first time in the OBX and I can't wait to go back. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
