Recent Manteo reviews

  • It feels like home.

    "This was our second stay at The Neva Midgett House, and after spending about nine hours on the road – we felt as though we had “come home” when we opened that front door and walked into the very welcome comfort within! It’s easy to see from the photos that this is a beautiful house with a wonderful front porch and, although January isn’t prime for porch sitting, it can be a month of surprising weather. We arrived when it was just barely above freezing, however within two days we were up in the low 60’s enjoying our vacation from the frozen northeast! Manteo is a perfect town – completely walk able (or bike able) from its lovely historic downtown, along the boardwalk by the waterfront, into Festival Park and even out past The Elizabethan Gardens. Although Nags Head's beaches are just minutes across the Washington Baum Bridge, we chose to go a little farther south and spent a few hours on Coquina Beach where we met some local fishermen launching their boat into the surf to set their nets for dogfish (AKA as cape shark) - and then were lucky enough to chat with two riders and their beautiful horses who’d come over from Wanchese. This is one of the great things about the area – you meet people who live there year round, not just tourists. Although our stay in Manteo was a short one, we were able to hit some of our favorite spots including the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge just over in Manns Harbor (about a 30 minute drive), Jeanette’s Pier (an 8 minute drive) to watch the wetsuit clad surfers and pelicans fly over…and then down across the Bonner Bridge to Pea Island where the migrating ducks and waterfowl were really out in full force! If you haven’t driven down there, it’s a must see during any time of year. I highly recommend late afternoon in order to walk out to the observation areas and catch the ducks and birds as they home in before sunset…where you might find yourself in awe as the sunset steals over the never-ending sky, reflecting off the North Pond. Staying at the Neva Midgett House once again offered us the comfort of feeling at home, having a real kitchen to cook in, yet being on vacation in a charming town. Must add that it’s a pleasure to walk everywhere – including to one of the best little restaurants in town, Ortega’z Southwestern Grill and wine bar just around the corner on Sir Walter Raleigh. We couldn’t have asked for a better winter break, and Sharon Watson knows how to make her guests feel very welcome."

  • Our Half Marathon Event

    "We are a "Framily" of running friends. Six adults and two children. The location was perfect to watch the Super Moon, play guitars on the porch and jenga in the yard. Dinner was spent together around the spacious table and meals were cooked in the gourmet kitchen. No one had to wait for a hot shower and there was amble parking and room to ramble in this spacious house. We loved the charm of downtown, the historic space and a beautiful weather. We are coming back! Thank you for offering your home and it's memories."

  • Manteo was a relaxing, quaint place to stay.

    "Pirates's Cove was convenient to a lot of places, yet removed from the beach sprawl. The condo was comfortable and met our needs. Compared to some of the VRBOs where we've stayed, it lacked a few amenities such as adequate toilet paper on arrival, coffee filters, wine opener, and a few light bulbs were out. We would definitely stay here again."

  • Beautiful Place!!

    "We stayed for two weeks and it felt like home. Very clean and beautifully decorated. David Bundy, the manager was more than accommodating, always available to help with any questions or needs you may have. It's a great community and 5 minutes from Nags Head and Manteo. We had a marina view and a short walk to the Ship's Store, Blue Water Grill & Bar. The Tiki Bar outside had live music and you could watch the boats come in. Just down your back steps was the canal and walking deck that took you right to the pool. You won't be disappointed!"
