"My wife and our 2 kids stayed here during the summer of 2016 and had a great time! Its the perfect size for a single family vacation, who wants to do a little bit of everything.
The house is in the perfect location. For starters, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head are the entertainment area of the Outer Banks. It is where the majority of the restaurants and shops are located. The house was just minutes from the Wright Brothers Memorial, Tanger Outlets, "The Lost Colony" and the Bodie Island lighthouse. After a full day of shopping and sightseeing my son and I would fish on the sound during the evenings.
My wife and Daughter loved the seclusion of staying on the sound and unwinding with a glass of wine.
When you do plan to Lay on the beach, I do recommend driving to it. Its close enough that you will be tempted to walk to it, but you will appreciate driving to it much more, especially during the heat of the summer. There were plenty of Public Beach Access parking areas that are free to park at.
I could go on for days about the things we enjoyed during our vacation and the house we stayed in. As for any drawbacks, we did have to turn on the power and had to wait for the house to cool off. (it was 96 degrees outside when we arrived at 2pm so it took awhile) We went grocery shopping a couple of blocks away and then stayed on the beach for a time and it was cool when we returned. If you have small children or elderly adults you may want to plan for the cool down time. We have stayed in Several Home Away locations and experienced the same thing with the other rentals as well, we don't mind it, but you should be aware.
Overall We had a terrific first vacation at the Outer Banks and would HIGHLY recommend this rental. Marion, the owner, was very organized, informative and wonderful to work with. This house has it all, Location, Affordability and Waterfront views!"
