  • Amazing Vacation at Sandpiper's Way!

    "Our family just returned from a wonderfully relaxing Easter vacation week at Sandpiper's Way. We've rented from VRBO many times and although we've never been disappointed, this house really exceeded our expectations. It is so light and airy, well maintained, and clean (which ranks high in my book). The second floor has a wonderful open concept with an updated kitchen, large and comfortable sectional to lounge around on, a huge dining table, an upper "nook" that my daughter used daily as her space to read and a sunroom which I used daily for morning coffee and reading. The bedrooms are all spacious with comfortable bedding. The owners provided multiple bikes, tennis rackets, beach chairs, books galore, movies, etc. for our entertainment. The location of this house is key...in a great neighborhood with a clubhouse, indoor pool, exercise room, game room, tennis courts, playground and two outdoor pools. Although it was too early in the season for the outdoor pools, we made use of everything else. It's also very close to the beach, which we rode our bikes to on three occasions. Likewise, it's close to town, which we were also able to ride our bikes to. The owners were very easy to work with and the communication is the best I've had from any of my VRBO rentals. In sum, we had an amazing vacation and would not hesitate to rent this house again! I always like when people give food recommendations so I'll try to do the same: My kids LOVE Duck Donuts so we ate those on multiple (yikes) occasions. Our last evening there we ate at Steamers and had some really fresh seafood with a great view on the upper deck. We had some yummy and unique nachos and fish tacos at Bad Bean Baja Grill. Great breakfast at Sam and Omie's (although a little more of a drive but we hit up Jockey's Ridge State Park afterward on the way back which was fun; there is also Jeanette's Pier across the street which is great for fishing). Went to Fish Heads Bar and Grill one night which has a fun and relaxed vibe on a pier. Pretty much daily we got coffee from Treehouse Coffee and my husband also frequented Sweet T's (just a bike ride away) for coffee and some of their micro brews; both spots are quaint and relaxing. Writing this review is making me want to go back already!! Thanks John and Betty for sharing your home with us!"

  • Sea Fever Garwood

    "Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: 3rd time in Duck, we had a great time as always. Beach and pool all day, and short bike rides into town in morning and night. We loved the location. We've stayed on Marlin once before and on Christopher once. This was the closest we've ever been to the beach and we loved that. Brand new house, so not too much to complain about. Probably would have been a little easier with kids if one of the bedrooms had two singles or another set of bunkbeds. Game room had no games? Thought it said that there was a tv at the bar, but I guess that's coming later. Also thought I saw something about a fire pit and never saw that. Ice machine at bar, was not what we expected. We've stayed at other houses with real ice machines. Probably would be a good idea to include wifi password with welcome material, we had to call and no one got back to us until Sunday afternoon. Also hot tub head rest came off as soon as jets were turned on first day there. No one was even sitting in that spot, we had to pay for it which I don't think was right. For the most part we loved the house, just mentioning a few things that could make it better."

  • Great house!

    "We were 4 families. 8 adults plus 8 kids. We had plenty of room for cooking, eating, and playing. Nice, clean, modern house. Very, VERY close to shops and boardwalk. Also very close to the beach. With so many little ones it was great to have a short walk back and forth from the beach to the house for those frequent bathroom breaks or hungry tummies. The only thing the house needed was a set of measuring cups and a drying rack for dishes ;)"

  • Wonderful Home in Great Location

    "Martin's cottage certainly exceeded our expectations. Lovely home that is well maintained & stocked with all the necessities. We particularly appreciated the little things such as the key less entry, the 2 baby gates to help with the spiral staircase & the lower level fridge for storing beverages for the pool. We shared the home with another family (4 adults & 4 kids). We really enjoyed having the family room & kitchen a floor up from the bedrooms... made it easier for the adults to relax after the kids went to bed as well as a nice place to take noisy early morning risers. The pool was great for the eight of us and we got good use out of the picnic table w/ umbrella & the pool furniture. Its definitely a hike to the beach but the beach cart & kids wagon made it much easier. We found the longer walk to the beach was well worth being so close to town. We really enjoyed the convenience of being a block or two away from morning lattes, duck doughnuts, wave pizza, and all the complimentary programs that Duck runs throughout the week (yoga on the green, movie on the sound, etc.). Overall it was a great home & a great experience for our family."
