  • Rented during potential hurricane (keep reading it is all good)

    "My wife and I booked this house for 10/4 to 10/11 way in advance and opted out of the insurance for the trip as hurricane season is supposed to end October 1. Three days out from 10/4 it looked like Hurricane Joaquin was going to go right over the house. We made several calls to Heidi to see where our vacation stood and she was more than helpful. My wife and I feel there is no such thing as customer service anymore but that is clearly not the case when it comes to this rental. Heidi eased all our of anxiety about the vacation and also went above and beyond in assisting us with potential travel problems. She was even doing internet research during our travel day (I would not expect this always but we were trying to access the 4 WD area during exceptional circumstances). I was totally floored with attention to detail by the owners of this property!! The house is absolutely beautiful and the area is unbelievable. The house was very modern and clean and is set up in such a way that it provided maximum privacy for the renters (great privacy from landscaping). We drove to the location in the worst possible circumstances and access to the house was extremely easy, just follow the directions from the owners. Had a blast with the kayaks and easily caught 7 crabs in an afternoon while drinking beer on the private/secluded beach. If you rent, I recommend checking out the sunset by kayak from the bay area which is short paddle stroke away. Well worth the travel to 4wd area just know going in that you are looking for a laid back and private vacation!!! Thanks so much Heidi this was exactly what we needed! Hope you are still renting in the area in a couple years."

  • Perfect for our second honeymoon!

    "We fell in love with Ocracoke Island back in 1991 when we spent a week there on our honeymoon. Unfortunately, we did not fall in love with the fishing shack we stayed in! A friend of a friend owned a little house we could rent and we booked it sight unseen...that was before vrbo and reviews were available. We can look back and laugh now but we always promised ourselves we would go back and stay in a nice place someday. Well we kept that promise for our 25th wedding anniversary this year and stayed at Second Wind. What an amazing house and week we had!! Thank you for providing such a clean, cozy, perfect property for rent! We've been home a few weeks and miss it so much! It was so nice to have a kitchen stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals. The entire house was spacious and beautifully decorated with attention to every detail. We enjoyed the decks, the wildlife and the activity along the canal. The week was magical and we spent lots of time at the beach. We went early one morning and saw a sunrise wedding on the beach along with an amazing rainbow and there were too many stars at night to even count! We enjoyed the local seafood (especially Eduardo's taco truck!) and looking through the local shops. We hated to leave but know we will be back someday. We have been recommending your place to interested family and friends, too. Thank you again for helping us create memories that will last a lifetime!"

  • Right on the ocean

    "We have stayed at a lot of VRBO homes and this was fantastic. You are just steps away from the ocean. We watched the Dolphins swim by each day. This cottage is close to all the amenities you need in the upper outer banks. The cottage was comfortable for two adults and three young adults. The hot tub was so nice to sit in and watch the ocean."

  • A Perfect Getaway

    "My wife and I needed a few days reprieve and decided on a weekend away in the Outer Banks. She used to come to Corolla as a child so we looked there at first, but were so lucky to find this gem instead! Duck in the spring is simply fantastic and uncrowded; everything we wanted in our retreat. The house, in a word, perfect. Perfect size, perfect location, perfect amenities, perfectly furnished and stocked. Being that it was just two of us, we had our choice of the four bedrooms. My goal for the weekend was not to be relegated to the room with two double beds. ;-) I think the house could get crowded with too many people, but it felt like a great size for groups up to 6. The upstairs was homey and beachy and set the tone for the weekend. The exposed beams really gave a great feel to the great room. The kitchen had everything we needed from the coffee maker to some great pans and a sharp knife which helped immensely preparing blackened Ahi with a tomato-onion relish. The hot tub was an added bonus and not something to which we normally have access: we took advantage of time to soak our cares away. (Which offset the 45 degree ocean quite nicely, but that's March in the mid-Atlantic for you :-) ) The location of the house gave us quick access to everything we wanted to do. We could easily walk to the beach for morning sunrises, trying not to disturb the deer which we saw each day, and everything in Duck was less than a mile walk down the boardwalk. We never had to fire up the car once we arrived - we simply walked to get mid-morning coffee (at Treehouse Coffee!), lunch (Cravings), groceries (Tommy's Market, with fabulous cookies), and dinner (EASTSIDE!!!!). We're both pretty active, so we bicycled up to Corolla one day, and had great running routes down into Southern Shores each day. Working with the owners was fantastic - they could not have been more helpful. If you're lucky enough to find availability that matches your schedule, this house will not disappoint!"
