"The Area: (Rodanthe)
Pros: Quiet, less crowded than northern OBX, 4x4 Beach access points
Cons: Longer travel times, less commerce/activities
The House: (SeaDream)
Pros: Clean, well stocked kitchen, accessibility, walking distance to the beach (nice beach too!)
Cons: No easy route to the beach (with chairs, babies, coolers etc), aesthetically unappealing entrance to location (abandoned waterpark of some kind at the main road)
I think overall the house was not the best fit for our family with 3 kids under 1yr of age and a 60+ with limited mobility. We didn't use the hot tub, the gaming systems, the table tennis, the Foosball table or the nice TV set up with surround sound.
If we did it all again, we would either stay somewhere RIGHT on the beach without all the extra's or somewhere further away and just drive our 4x4 on the beach. If the kids were 6-12 years old, they would have loved the hot tub, games, TV etc.... (and we could have made them carry things)"
