Unique Vacation Lots of Fun
Everything was just as described and Mike is very informative, patient, and communicative. The house is very clean and Mike and Donna have done very well with their newly listed property. They also have great future plans. It was plenty spacious for the 5 of us and we could have comfortably added a few folks. This property is in a nice location, and you’ll find such a unique beaching experience, that can be as private or social as you wish. We went there with the attitude that we would shop for what was needed and then stay put all week. We couldn’t have been more wrong! Driving up and down the beach was awesome! We also enjoyed riding through the streets and looking at other properties and horses. I highly recommend this property, and the owners get an A+ as well!
***On a side note, we used A-1 towing for parking our non 4-wheel drive vehicle and only because that’s the only option! Beware this guy is such a prick. I would rather toss my $81 cash out the window than give it to that man, but didn’t have much of an option. That has little to do with this property, but just be forewarned, he is degrading and don’t dare ask him a single question!
We enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very helpful in preparing us. The house was clean . We made wonderful memories with our grandchildren who did not want to leave. We loved the short ride to the beautiful beaches. Mike and Donna have been working hard at renovating and have done a beautiful job.
Off the beaten path
My wife and I were looking for an off the beaten path OBX rental for a family vacation (4 kids (14-23yo), 1 grand-baby (15mo) and us). One evening we stumbled across this gem of a property that is convenient to the beach but far enough away to provide privacy.
The house is well laid out, 4 br and 2 &(2)1/2 bath and easily handled all 7 of us. The upstairs has the common areas of the house that do run warm in the day but it is a small trade off to have vaulted ceilings which open everything up nice. Dining seats 6 and the living room handled 5 or so. The space isn.t huge but there are 4 decks to help spread things out. There is a play room on the bottom floor but we did not really use it.
We booked and communicated with the owner easily before and during the stay. As listed, there were 2 beach passes for the much less crowded northern section of the 4x4 beach (they mean it, 4x4, air down and experience using 4wd in snow or other conditions is a plus). Just don't underestimate the 4x4 piece, we saw 2 people stuck (offered to help but they were already being assisted). That said my wife drove her Jeep Cherokee with no issues (small SUV) but we live in the land of 300+ inches of annual snow.
A huge plus for us was being so far away from the commercial district. With a group like ours it is easy to get caught up in the tourism rather than the real reason for the trip, family time and the beach.
The price was reasonable compared to other properties on the OBX we considered.
I cannot recommend this place enough.
Tips: Bring about 25% more groceries/supplies than you think you will need and save yourself a trip or 2 into town as it will consume and evening. We did plan 1 supply run during our trip but had to make a second because we fell short on bottled water (was nice for the wife and I to get some alone time anyway).
Clean and quiet. just a short drive to the beach.. highly recommended..i definitely would go again
Excellent setting and great communication with landlord throughout the stay!!
Relaxing and nice!
Great place to relax. Super easy to book and checkin. Owner communicated well. It was just a short drive to get to the beach front and a nice house to get away to.
This property has everything you need for a relaxing weekend at the beach and more. The owners did a phenomenal job in thinking of every detail to make our stay comfortable and worry free. They were also very good at responding to our questions and needs! The kitchen and wet bar area are fully stocked for a good meal and a nice drink to go with it. The beach is only a 5 to 10 minute drive depending on the location that you chose to pitch your beach chairs and dip in the water. The location is perfect with many shops around it about a 30 minute drive. This is a beautiful home away from home, we will definitely be contacting the owners in the future. :)
