Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5

This house fit our party of seven perfectly. It was so clean, well stocked, and nicely decorated! It is a short drive to the ocean and the community pool is so nice and clean...with an outstanding view of the sound! I would stay again in a heartbeat.

I really enjoyed staying at your home. It made me feel right at home. Enjoyed sitting out on the deck the peace and quiet by the water. So relaxing. I would come back again and tell anyone that loves felling at home and relaxing to check into renting your home. It is truly home away from home. Thank You again for letting us rent your home it made my vacation a very good memory.

.....should I tell you how great this place and owners are???

  • 5 of 5

...I have mixed emotions 😎

We decided to visit OBX in October 2016.....and so did Matthew.

We decided to stay while he was in town......granted it was in the stairwell, but we stayed....and did the house.

The Lantz family is great and very accommodating.

I have taken to long to write this review, for this I apologize to them.

The house is warm and the furnishing are careful chosen...beds comfy...and neighbors friendly.

Oh, and Halloween is a BIG deal!...bring candy.

This was our first time staying at The Teachers Lounge and was very enjoyable. The property is neat, clean and has been updated. We enjoyed the canal view as well.
