  • Our third visit

    "We've rented Kapt'n Kelly's three times now and have always received prompt and helpful service from the manager; enjoyed a nice, comfy, well-appointed house; and had a good visit in the most pet-friendly accommodation we have rented. The house is nicely arranged, with living space and kitchen and a beautiful view of the sound from the upper deck, all upstairs. The bedrooms are downstairs and offer a quiet place to rest, read, and sleep. The decks are fabulous - the lower one that wraps around on three sides and allows access to the sound in back as well as including a large and well-furnished screen room; and the upper one off the living room that looks over the sound and gives you wonderful views of boats, fishing birds, and sunsets. The kitchen is well-appointed with good cookware, dishes, and appliances. The neighborhood is quiet and very well suited to walking dogs (we bring three). The bedrooms and bathrooms are nicely arranged, and the beds are comfortable. Linens are provided so all we had to bring were our bath and beach towels, which was a plus. Unlike several houses we have rented through realty agencies, this one (managed by Shore Details) came with a starter pack that included four rolls of toilet paper, one packet of dishwasher detergent, a small bottle of dish soap and a sponge/scrubber, and a roll of paper towels - so if you arrive later in the day, you are not having to stop and shop on the way for those essentials. We had a maintenance issue we needed resolved - we called Shore Details on Friday morning about it and it was taken care of within a few hours. They were so quiet and efficient that we did not even know they had come and gone. We've always had good service with the manager and were pleased with the service by the maintenance company. Our primary wish would be that there were screen doors on the sliders that lead to the two bedrooms that abut the screened porch because the screening on the porch is a bit worn and does not keep out the mosquitoes as well as it should (or the occasional squirrel!). So we could not sleep with the slider door open at night to enjoy the sea breezes or keep the slider open during the day when we were resting to enjoy the sounds of the soundside. The location is great - easy access to Buxton, Frisco, and Hatteras, and local attractions and resources like Orange Blossom, Conners, Equine Adventures, Dutch Bonnet, Billy Mitchell Airfield, Quarterdeck, beach access points, and many more."

  • Terrific house to recommend

    "This was my first visit to the OBX and I couldn't have chosen a better house. This house was perfect for me and my family. ( We were 10 adults, 2 toddlers and an infant.) It accommodated all of us quite comfortably, right down to having a pack -n-play (which I had emailed the owner in advance -- owner answered all of my questions within 24 hours.) Good location, clean house, great layout, large dining table to seat 10, highchair, plenty of parking, pool and hot tub maintained, short walk to beach, closet full of games, books and puzzles, loved the outdoor shower, a very pleasant first trip to OBX. I would absolutely recommend this house. Another great feature was having the beach chairs and other equipment delivered for our arrival. The one suggestion that I have is that a few extra bath towels would have been helpful."

  • Great Value

    "We had 7 adults and 7 children ranging from 2-13 years old. The house was exactly what we expected it was a perfect fit for our needs. The upstairs kitchen/living room was a great space for family meals and the porches were nice as well. the walk is exactly 1/2 mile to the each which was just fine for us. The beach was amazing. Our family had so much fun on the bunch. There is also a great walking/biking path very close. The location was extremely convenient. Groceries and restaurants very close and Duck/Corolla were just a short drive away. It was an amazing vacation. Communication with the renter was fantastic along the way. Thanks for a great time"
