  • Couldn't be better!

    "I was going to discuss the pros and cons of vacationing at Seaquester, but there just are no cons. We are a family of seven adults and we had a blast at Seaquester. First of all, Patti at Great Escapes was so kind and helpful, and their cleaning crew did a fantastic job- the house and bathrooms were very clean (and I am fussy). There are four king bedrooms with their own bath and a room with two bunk beds, which we didn't need to use. The top floor has a master bedroom, the living room, dining room and kitchen (with everything you could want). The two refrigerators were wonderful - we used on for ice and beverages and the other for food. There are two coffee makers so we had one for regular and one for decaf! That was a nice touch. Great Escapes also left us a small basket of a few necessities and the kitchen has spices, but you do need to bring most everything for food and cleaning, though each bathroom has a dispenser of hand soap, another nice touch. And the multiple light switches are labeled- you can tell the owners have really thought of ways to make their home easy to love. There is a screened in porch for the master bedroom and a screened in dining room as well, with wrap around decks on the top 2 floors. So lots of space for couples privacy and lots of space for us all to get together. The pool is great, and after we decided you didn't need to be a kid to use it, we all had fun on the water slide. Lots of loungers, an umbrella table, chairs, and pool toys as well. The hot tub was such a treat. The pool and hot tub were super clean when we arrived on Saturday, and the pool maintenance guy came again on Tuesday. Did I mention the private walkway to the sandy beach right on the ocean? The house is beachy, but not kitchy- soft blues and neutrals, very comfy beds and chairs and sofas. Lots of storage space in the closets, extra blankets and pillows if you need them. We had one terrible rainy day (Tropical Storm Bonnie) but then at 5 pm my son called us out to the deck to see a full arc double rainbow! So I guess you can tell we loved the house, the location and the Outer Banks. This rental is worth every penny for the ocean front location, the pool & hot tub, the charming and comfortable interior and everything you want and need for a great family vacation. Seven thumbs up for our family! We hope to be back in 2018."

  • Great house for 2 families

    "Just returned from Duck and spending a week in this house. House was ready early and nice and clean. Perfect to have the two master kings on the top floor and the middle floor for kids with their own den/tv. The AC rocked, kitchen had most every need, just remember to bring TP, PT, trash bags, dish soap etc. Had a few issues with TV and wifi but property mgmt. company responded quickly they even powerwashed the decks within an hour of our arrival after concerns of a lot of bugs on screen!! Only big downfall is the outdoor shower--it doesn't have a drain and the cement isn't pitched correctly so the water just stands stills and gets really gross if you used soap or shampoo, so we had to stop using it to shower and only used for a minute to rinse off from beach but this creates a problem with sand in the pool. Will be a bit of a job to fix, but it should be addressed. Also house need MUSIC--nothing outside or only small undercounter radio in kitchen."

  • Paradise on the Sound at OBX

    "Outstanding beach house. House was exquisite. Every amenity needed was available. Décor was my taste in every way. House was private and we felt like we were alone because of the trees and shrubbery. Dock was perfect. Our grandsons spent many hours fishing and crabbing. Sunsets were awesome. Enjoyed kayaking the Sound. Our entire family came, which included a total of 11, but due to the size of the house and the layout we each had our own private area, when needed. House exceeded our expectations. The open floor plan was fantastic. Everything was orderly and identified in the kitchen which was great. Only downside was a wedding next door our last night where the music definitely surpassed the curfew and did not allow our family to spend our last night in our peaceful surroundings. First time ever staying Sound side....would definitely do it again. Elevator was a nice feature due to the number of steps between floors. Nice bike trail from this house to the town of Duck. Would definitely return to this house. Close proximity to the town of Duck, which was nice."

  • Great Stay

    "Just returned from a week at Life O'Riley with three generations of our family and loved the house. I have been renting in NC, DE or MD beaches for the past 20 summers and have never found a home so well equipped. I usually bring my own kitchen gadgets and cooking utensils, no need. The kitchen had everything you could need including a roaster, crock pot, waffle iron and griddle to make feeding a crowd easy. The well stocked guest closet with beech chairs, bikes for adults and kids and just about everything else you need for the beach/pool was great. The beds were very comfortable as were the couches. The kids loved having their own pool/game/living room and the adults appreciated that the home has two hot tubs, a large pool and slide and that each bedroom had its own bathroom, flat screen TV and access to a deck (except one that is about 20 feet from the sliders to the pool). The location was great, especially for being able to walk or bike to just about everything. We really enjoyed spending time at the beach and the Duck shops/boardwalk, both were an easy walk from the house. In the afternoon when the kids were to tired for the walk, the community offers a shuttle around the complex to the beach and main road. Lynn was very easy to book with, her manager was great at coordinating our check in and kept in regular contact with us. We of course were one of those families who broke something, the lock to the sliding glass door, but maintenance replied to us immediately, making the repair in about an hour. Overall it was a great house that allowed for a great week at the beach, we will stay at Life O'Riley again and are looking forward to it. A note about the check in and check out. Your paperwork will ask you nicely not to go directly to the house to try to check in early and to call the manager instead.....this will be a benefit to you at check out....I have rented at other houses and been asked to wipe down all the surfaces, vacuum, sweep/mop and so on at check out before the cleaners come in, that is not the case at Life O'Riley and I loved that....you have a minimal check list and are on your way back home. The reason you don't have a lot to do at check out is because of how meticulous the cleaning crew is after you leave...... don't interrupt the cleaning crew."
