  • Had a ball!!

    "The house was clean and relaxed. We liked the fact that the bedrooms were on opposite sides of the living area so there was lots of privacy for couples with kids or multiple couples. The kitchen was well stocked and perfect for us since we cook our own food. We didn't use any of the toys, boats or game room but I am sure that would appeal to some. We stayed outside windsurfing, fishing or visiting local sites. There are plenty of places to eat, grocery store, hardware and bait all very close to the house. The house was close to other houses but it was also somewhat secluded. We never felt like we were overcrowded by other homes. For sailers: It was perfect for us. The large yard allowed us to rig and stay rigged the entire week. There was a water hose for rinsing gear before leaving. Sails can be placed under the house for uv protection. The sound is about 50 yards away with nice steps through a sea wall. The water stays waste deep out about 200 years and then dropped off over my head so newer sailers might not like the off shore jibes in heavy chop. East or west winds mean shallow the entire time. You do get a confused chop because of the sea wall but just past the sea wall the chop is more predictable. I am not a kiter so I don't know how much room is needed to launch. The sound access is narrow so you might want to consider that. Canadian hole is a short drive so that is always an option for beginners. I would recommend this house for sailers for sure. We enjoyed catching see mullet on the beach, blue crabs at the dock and kite flying at the beach. There is just so much to do. The owners were super nice and available by text to answer any questions. We actually feel like we made some new friends and we hope to stay in touch. Of course we will be back also."

  • The best of the OBX!

    "We loved our stay at Sounds Good! The walk to the beach was short, and the grocery store was within walking distance. We had a group of 10 people (3 couples and 4 kids) and there was more than enough room for us to spread out and have some peace and quiet if we needed it. The dining room table is huge and we had some pretty awesome meals and game time around that table. We also loved the pool, and the convenience of the outdoor shower when we came back from the beach. It was so lovely to take a bike ride when the sun was setting on the sound, we ran into some deer that allowed us to observe them doing their thing. It was so cool! We were also very fortunate to be in the area during the Perseid meteor shower and the top deck was perfect viewing from the Adirondack chairs. It was amazing! We would highly recommend Sounds Good and the area of Avon! The best the OBX has to offer!!"

  • Best value and a well cared for cottage

    "This extremely well cared for cottage is by far the best value that we have stayed at in our dozen plus vacations to the Outer Banks in the last 20 years.Every room has beach themed items from the creepy sailor guy in the front room, lamps,pictures and photo's throughout tol pillows and a beautiful quilt hanging on the wall. The owners take great care and it shows. From small details like a Keurig to the back saving lift that with a push of a button will take your heavy coolers and luggage from ground up a story and a half. Very nice. Close to the beach, restaurants,shopping and the supermarket that will save you time and energy. November is off season, I was surprised on the amount of people and traffic around.While we have never been to the Outer Banks during in-season and peak my wife and I are certain there would be 3 to 4 times what we experienced. The secret must be out on off-season along with the best fishing we ever had and excellent weather. I cannot say enough about how the owners really truly care about this property and are very accommodating as they let us stay a extra day(paid extra,of course). Thank you guys for letting us share your second home. P.S. We could not find a diary/ log book to share our experience along with reading other people's fun times."
