"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."
