About Debbie Tierney
We traveled the East Coast for a year and this was the best community and location. My husband, Mike, does Charter fishing in shore, off shore and near shore and shrimping charters in the summer. In the fall we have a duck and bear hunting business.
Why Debbie Tierney chose Manteo
We built this home for ourselves and when the kids left it was way too big for 2 people. We made every room oversized with lots of separate areas for different activities. We still live right here in Pirates Cove but I sure miss the view from this house.

Do yourself the favor and STEER CLEAR
We woke up the first morning covered in bug bites, not sure what kind of bites but there is no doubt, we were bitten while sleeping. When we attempted to make coffee, we discovered not only the filter area but the coffee pot was covered in mold and there was still half a pot of coffee. When we were cooking on the stove top we noticed the back of the stove was covered in grease. It looked like it had never been cleaned. The towels were very old and damp. The ceiling has many stains from what appears to be recent roof leaks. The washing machine was covered in mildew and mold and water was still in it. 2 of the toilets were broken and leaking. 1 toilet didn’t flush, you had to lift the handle in the tank and take off the lid every time you used the toilet. The boardwalk/ dock is broken and you can’t walk out on it. The ice maker shown in photos is not for renters to use. For the amount of money paid, this is not what I expected. We rent 4-6 houses a year and this was the first time we had such a bad experience. To make matters worse, on our day of departure at 9:58 am sharp, the owner showed up and failed to introduce herself. She came up the stairs and started accusing us of taking a solar light off the stairs. It was a 5.00 light if that, it was wedged in the stairway to light the stairway. We responded letting her know, maybe the wind took it off the stairs and she continued to accuse us, saying kids like to play with them because they think they are flashlights. I reassured her the youngest kid I have is 15 years old and he never went out other than to walk to the car. My 5 month old can’t walk yet so he didn’t touch any lights. She then walked in and saw our luggage and groceries on the counter and said “ oh wow for a 10 am check out, you have a lot left.” I told her we just need 15 minutes because we needed coffee and had to drive to the closest Starbucks to get coffee. I showed her my legs and my sons legs and explained the bug bites. She agreed to call a Pest Control Company. She said sometimes people sneak animals into the house. I then showed her the grease on the stove top and the coffee pot and she said she can’t believe her cleaning crew missed these items. She admitted the house is falling apart and they are trying to stage it and sell it soon. It was in no condition to be rented. We never used the oven because my in-laws came from Raleigh with the turkey and ham but she called me to tell me we cracked the glass on her oven.
Great house in a great location
This house worked out perfectly for the group and I. It slept everyone comfortably, and we couldn’t get enough of the views around us. The location was amazing, and very convenient to get everywhere we needed go.
Lastly, Debbie was a great host and responded to everything we asked for.
Thank you Dan, it was a pleasure having your group. Debbie
Beautiful wedding on the sound
We just had our dream wedding here. The backyard was beautiful and perfect for an intimate wedding with 25 people. Seeing the moon rise over the sound is a memory I will never forget. Gorgeous setting with a nice sized backyard and so many awesome porches.
It was so fantastic to stay here with all of our friends. Everyone loved the house and it had everything we needed. The hot tub and the deck with rocking chairs overlooking the sound were the two favorites.
One thing to note however—the listing says it sleeps 21 and we had 15, and I can’t imagine having more then 2 more people (3 max). I know the occupancy is based on two people in double beds, but with adults that’s kinda hard....Also one bed is more of a futon in the basement.
Debbie was super responsive throughout the months leading up to our booking, responding quickly and being flexible and helpful. The morning of our check in there was a little mishap with getting into the house, though, and we couldn’t get a hold of her. It ended up working out fine, but it would be helpful to have been able to reach her during the time we said we were checking in. Also she popped over to the house at one point, and we would have appreciated her letting us know she was coming.
Overall, this house is a fantastic find and well worth the money. Debbie was wonderful to work with and we are so grateful to have been able to have our wedding here. Thanks Debbie!
I’m glad your wedding went well. Always best to call the owners on the cell number not the home number. My 14 beds are clearly outlined and the house is for family groups where children fit fine two in a double bed. I actually didn't pop over, I was out front picking a new shingle for the roof and one of your family members invited me to come to the back yard to meet you. Since I comped you a 6 hour early check in and another 6 hour late checkout, and no event fee, I felt welcomed by your family to be invited to the back yard so I could meet you. I apologize if that was uncomfortable or inconvenient for you.
Beautiful views and great location
This property was ideally located in a beautiful development with many on site amenities. The pool are was clean and people were friendly, the gym was way more than I expected. The house is situated at the end of the development with breathtaking views. It was close to everything we wanted to do. We had a few concerns throughout our stay and Debbie was right on it! She was delightful to deal with. The only thing that you should be aware of is since this place has so many windows it doesn't get that cold in some of the bedrooms so I would definitely bring a fan. I would definitely recommend it. My family had a great time and made some wonderful memories.
Great house and location, Clean and close to beaches. Online accuracy lost a point due to picture of ice maker, but renters unable to use. Not a big deal, but each party in our group was excited by the possibility.
Thank you Joy, I'll change the listing to mention the ice maker is not available for rentals. Debbie
A group of 16 stayed at the house with space for more. The house had a pool table and air hockey table for the kids, and a hot tub for the adults. Quiet area, and a short drive to either the beach or grocery stores.
Ideally located right on the Sound with an awesome view of the sunrise in the morning, and the sunset on the bay side in the evening. A short drive by boat or car will take you to the Manteo Waterfront shops and dining, Roanoke Island Festival Park, The Elizabethian Gardens, The Aquarium and so much more. Travel north on 64 just 2 miles to the Tanger Outlet Mall where you'll find many designer stores at outlet prices. Continue North up to Corolla to see the wild horses that still roam the beaches. Take a day trip South past the Hatteras Lighthouse and take the free ferry over to Ocracoke Island and their quaint villages.
Other Activities: wind sufing, hang gliding, go karts, mini golf, jet ski rentals, jet pack, parasailing, lasertag. and H20 Water Park.
Something for everyone. 3 Floors, 5 decks and an elevator make this home user friendly rain or shine.
