About David Wilkinson
We purchased the home in January 2005 and performed a major renovation as a labor of love over then next 5 months. Drove 6 hours almost every weekend with our 3 young children (10, 6 and 4 at the time) who helped clean, paint and turn this property into a cozy home. We replaced all the windows and doors, installed wood floors in living areas, new carpet in the BR's, added a large deck and created a new main entrance with french doors, installed a pool and gazebo. We also updated the electric system and installed ceiling fans, freshened up the kitchen cabinets, refinished walls and ceilings, repainted the entire house inside and out, and bought all new furniture. The result is a bright and fresh home with lots of light and artistic decor that will make you feel right at home.

Fantastic and Relaxing
What a nice house to recharge your soul. Sunny, bright and airy with the beach a five minute walk down the street. We didn't want for anything.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay Steve. Hope the kite boarding conditions were favorable and you enjoyed being on the east coast. Come visit again!!!
Wonderful, Charming, Quiet Property - Pictures Do Not Do It Justice
We had an AMAZING vacation on our very 1st trip to the Outer Banks! David was wonderful and so easy to work with in preparing our vacation on a 2-day notice (due to having to cancel a different beach vacation due to Hurricane Florence)! We arrived at the house and fell in love with it! It is in such a quiet, secluded area! We were pleasantly surprised to see that the living room furniture and tv’s had been updated from what the pictures had shown! The hammocks, private pool, and jacuzzi were such an awesome and relaxing addition to this trip! I was worried that the walk to the beach would be farther than I was wanting - but it is so much closer than I even expected! Lots of fantastic restaurants within 1-3 miles and just a short walk to get wonderful ice cream! It truly felt like a home away from home! Thank you again David - we will be back!!
Sarah - Thank you for your kind words. I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay and that you discovered a new area to vacation! Please keep Sunny Side Up in mind for future vacations.
Sweet, but short
We had a good time at Sunny Side Up. The house was open the week ahead of us, so the owner let us come down a day early. This was great because on Monday of our week a mandatory evacuation was issued for hurricane Florence. David, the owner, was very good to work with and refunded some of our money. While we were there for our short time, we really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The walk to the beach was a little rough on me as I am awaiting a knee replacement. I wouldn't be too bad otherwise. I would recommend Sunny Side Up.
Thanks for review Ed. I'm sorry you're vacation was cut short by the threat of Florence. Luckily, Sunny Side Up and the surrounding area did not suffer any damage but I'm glad they imposed a mandatory evacuation - better safe than sorry! I hope you'll come back to Sunny Side Up next year.
P.S. I hope your knee replacement goes well! Mine is scheduled for the end of November - we'll have to compare notes.
What more could you want?
Our family had a great stay at Sunnyside Up! The house is adorable inside and out and has everything you need. It was clean, nicely decorated, and really just top notch. The kids loved the bunk room with the foozball table and especially the pool! The grownups liked that the kids were exhausted after days on the beach and evenings in the pool. The sunroom was perfect for morning coffee and the deck was a great place for nightime stargazing (bring some insect repellant - the mosquitoes were vicious). The kitchen was well stocked and the full size washer and dryer on the living level was very convenient. I can't speak for the other beds, but the king in the master bedroom was super comfortable. The home is a short walk to the beach in a cute neighborhood and there's even an icecream shop within walking distance which was a hit as well. The Salvo area is relaxed and away from everything, but not too far away. We shopped at the Food Lion down in Avon when we first got there, but after that we were able to restock on anything we needed (water, cereal) at the Dollar General down the street. It was a short drive down to the Hatteras lighthouse and not too far to the aquarium up in Manteo. We drove out on the beach some too, just a few miles south at access 25 and enjoyed playing in the sound at the Salvo Day Use Area which was near access 25 as well. I highly recommend the area and Sunnyside Up! I sure hope to be back again!
Cute little beach house!
The house was just as pictured. My granddaughter loved the pool. House is very comfortable and enjoyed my morning coffee on the deck. If you want to be away from all the commercialization this is the perfect place to go to relax.
Thanks for the nice review Lucinda. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you will consider a return trip in future years.
Great house in a quiet cul-de-sac
The pool was refreshing, the decks were comfortable, the yard was clean and kept. The inside of the house was very comfortable. The interior was well appointed and very charming.
Thanks for the kind words Deborah. I hope you'll come back to Sunny Side Up if you visit the OBX in the future.
