  • Our First Outer Banks Vacation, but not our first VRBO house rental

    "Air conditioning excellent. It was hot outside and the whole house stayed cool. Plenty of table space, plates and bowls for family meals. We spent most of our time at the beach. It is quite a walk, on a narrow path with an incline. I didn't realize that it was also the path for public beach access (from the road along side of house), a tall wood fence separates property and path at the side of the house, that path joins the path behind the house. The description of the house states enjoy your own private walkway to the beach, I was only slightly startled the first time a person tried to pass us on the walkway. There is a beach access sign out front, just didn't see it upon arrival. Coming back from the beach the foot rinse at the gate was great to have, as was the outdoor enclosed shower. The pool was nice, the kids really enjoyed it. The family room was comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool table We didn't really use the theater room. There are lots of stairs. We entered the house from the side door which is the bottom floor. The next floor up is three bedrooms, then the main floor (kitchen, family room) and then up one more for the last bedroom. We didn’t mind, but it was a week of multiple daily stair climbs. Overall. We would not consider the overall appearance of this house to be luxurious home with an elegantly exotic feel as stated in the description. The house appeared to need some tlc/updating inside and out. The top floor bed was very firm, and the two pillows were flat (old/very used), the door to that bedroom would not close completely. The TV in the bottom floor bedroom was not used, old, had high pitched ringing. The kitchen could use some improvements as far as utensils and cookware. There are no window coverings on the half bathroom windows, could be an issue as there was a man working on the roof of the house right next door (main floor bathroom). Several of the doors and faucets were not in the best working order. We did not have any dish towels. Knew we needed beach towels, but didn't think of dish towels, none were supplied. None of these items kept us from enjoying our first Outer Banks vacation experience, I listed them to support the 4 star rating. About 2 minutes North (on NC12) of this home there is a Dollar General and Leonardo Pizza (good). The Blue Whale is a few minutes South (on NC12) small store with great service and selection. Food Lion15 miles south on NC12, we grocery shopped there, but Blue Whale was our go to."

  • Another fantastic week! !

    "This was either our fourth or fifth time at Pelican Point and it was as much fun as ever. We have a family reunion here each year. My brother and his wife insist on staying in the guest house. They absolutely love the view, porch and quiet. I've tried to take it over without any luck. Kayaking, fishing, crabbing from the dock is awesome. Just be aware that it takes time to walk to the end of the dock because there is do much to stop and look at. One's own private nature preserve. Turtles, fiddler crabs, snakes, crabs, birds, etc. We even had a raccoon come to eat figs nightly off the big fig tree by the guest house. The pool and hot tub are just the greatest. Love the new cover for the hot tub. So much easier to use. My brother got us all into playing bocc ball this year. Quite a few spirited matches. So much fun. Sunsets are beautiful whether one is sitting with a glass of wine on the guesthouse deck or doing kitchen chores. They are visible from anywhere. This is the perfect spot for an Outer Banks vacation. Easy access (no steps to haul your belongings up), one level living. Really good for us older folks who have some issues. Wheelchair accessible also. Quite a few spots to have some "quiet" time if needed. But everything to keep a young active family contented. We will be returning again in 2017. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to spent our vacation in your great house."

  • The Name really does say it all...........

    "Myself, daughter and mom took a trip and stayed at the house for a week. It was fantastic and a perfect location for a quick stroll to the beach which was not crowded just families out there with plenty of children for my daughter to make friends with .I loved that it was close to some other great hang outs for the day times , there's a great day beach on the bay side just mins drive away with showers etc and very calm water for younger children to play in. I spent quite a few hours relaxing on the lovely screened in porch reading and just listening to the world outside. The house was very well equipped with everything you could need, very clean and exceptionally well maintained. The owners are great to work with and had answers to any questions I had . I will definitely rent this property again."
