Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautifully clean & inviting. We were impressed with how many "home" accouterments were present - the number of pans, number of griddles, and other fun things to cook with. Very nice surprise! Elevator was great for grandparents and lugging items to the top floor. Pet-friendly without being dumpy looking. And there wasn't a day that the cinema room was not enjoyed by nearly everyone. Will never rent a house without an elevator & cinema room! We loved the views, the array of things to do in inclement weather (roulette, cinema room, billiards, air hockey, keyboard), the beach access for kayaks and windsurfing, and being able to take our "young at heart, old in body" dog along. So wonderful!

Absolutely Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a great time at this property. It is like the title says, "Magnificent!" Even though we had a few rain days, there was plenty to keep us busy. Puzzles, poker, pool and the theater room. No one was bored! As usual the property was clean, and everything was high end from the kitchen to the bedrooms. Great access to everything from the Uglies at Orange Blossom Bakery, to the food and seafood stores. Thanks for everything and see you next year.

A truly beautiful home with up to date ammenities and owners who really care about their guests.

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned home from a week's stay at this beautiful home. When we arrived Tropical Storm Hermine was in full force on Hatteras. The owners kept in contact with us by phone as we traveled and kept us updated as to the road conditions. When we arrived the home was clean and ready for us. Any time we had a question about where something was or if a particular item was in the home all it took was a quick email or phone call and we got an immediate response. The pool/hot tub and pool bar area was a perfect place to gather during the day. The sound system that runs throughout the house was always on and definitely enjoyed. We also loved that the family members that brought kayaks could enter the water right from our own beach and dock. Our dogs also had a great time as the entire back yard and pool area is securely fenced in.

Although we didn't use the cinema room but once, if you had a bad weather day or lots of children it would have been a real asset.

The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, coffee makers, utensils and cookware! Everything you could possibly need was in there. There were two large ice machines that got constant use. The dining area had so much seating that the twelve of us could all sit down and eat our meals together.

The beds were very comfortable and the view from all the rooms was spectacular. Each bedroom had access to a deck and comfy chairs.

Our pictures and view of the sunsets are stunning.

We look forward to returning to this home again and again.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have rented other properties on the outer banks, but this one is the gem of them all. Outstanding properties from the two dishwashers, to the mattresses. Wonderful sunset views and it is very convenient to everything. Secluded and very comfortable from the pool to the hot tub. We had one rainy day but the pool table, media room, and puzzles filled out time. We want to go to the same place next year.

Beautiful home with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the combination of great privacy with easy access to the local beaches and restaurants as well as groceries and supplies was very convenient. The home is spectacular with water views almost everywhere you look. Great kitchen upstairs with full in-suite bathrooms for each Master. TV's everywhere, WIFI, pool table, card table etc..... The pool and hot-tub are all overlooking the sound and the yard is complete with a little put-put green! Highly recommend the drive to this property, owners very helpful and we had no complaints at all.
