  • Great Location

    "The house is in great location and is halfway between the bay side and the ocean. The house is nice and very clean. It is very well maintained and has excellent views and a variety of decks to enjoy the outdoors.It is within an easy walk to some great restaurants and coffe shops,This was at least out 12th stay in a VRBO location. The biggest negative was the lack of toiletries (soaps), garbage bags, dish towels, dish soap,and dish rags..This was our first rental that lacked these amenities. It was also our first location that we had to provide our own linens."

  • 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."

  • House was a Jewel

    "The Jewel of Denial is a great home in Duck that is nicely appointed, full of nice features (even labeled) and best of all CLEAN. After 40 weeks of rentals in OBX, it was nice to get a home that was in such great condition. Super clean kitchen that had outstanding features, eating and cooking wear and lots of space. Leisure spaces were pretty new and the electronics were in great shape (nice TVs, high end stereo and fast internet). We only used 5 of the 8 bedrooms and they were all just fine. Washer was new and worked great. Only thing that would make things 105% awesome would be a better ice cube maker as the refrig could not keep up to demand and hot tub jet performance needs attention. Management company was great to work with and we were treated with 2 fruit pies (still warm) mid week. Nice touch and appreciated. Had a great visit and the Four Seasons sub was wonderful with nice pools, beach access and other services. See you next year."

  • Solid beach house with a few opportunities....

    "First my positives: the house was the perfect size and location for me and my family of 7 (which includes my Frenchie). Our four boys had a blast being within walking distance to the boardwalk and ended up there each day! The location to the beach, sound, and shops was perfect! The weather was awesome, pool and hot tub were great and everything that we could have needed was there. This definitely is a family house. Now for the only reasons I couldn't give it a 5 star: the house was in need of a good cleaning. There were crumbs under the rugs, some of the dishes were dirty (so I ended up washing them all before using them), the windows were grimy which took away from being able to truly enjoy the views that they provided. The second and last slightly negative comment is that the owner was not very responsive. I've rented from VRBO many times before and have always had owners who responded immediately so maybe I've been spoiled, but I found myself having to send multiple messages to follow up on things (including how to check in). That said, a couple days prior to my stay, she did give me her cell number. I didn't end up having to use it but it made me feel as though I could get a rapid response during my stay should it have been needed. Overall I would still highly recommend this house to families with children and pets as it is a great house in a great location and the things I discounted it for are easily fixed!"
