  • 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."

  • Fantastic location and family friendly

    "My family of 12 + 2 infants stayed the week of July 4 and had a wonderful time. All accommodations (bedrooms, kitchen, A/C, bathrooms, etc.) were as described and in great condition. We particularly loved the pool and hot tub, the quiet location (the house is on a private court), the basketball hoop, and the close beach access. The nearest beach is indeed not crowded and quite beautiful. The owner was prompt in clear in all communication, displaying a professional disposition at all times. My only feedback for the owner is to include the need for linens in the property listing or supply them at the home. We learned of this need with our check-in instructions the week before. Thankfully, the recommended linen rental service was affordable and convenient. I recommend this home to all families without reservation. The value was fantastic and honestly exceeded my expectations."

  • Wonderful family beach vacation house

    "We had a wonderful stay in Duck at the Belvedere. It's situated in a lovely neighborhood, very close to downtown Duck. It's a short walk to the beach and the owners are were so kind to lend out their chairs and a wagon for transporting items there. We enjoyed walking down to the shops and ice cream parlors and riding bikes on the bike path that goes through town. We had 7 people and had plenty of space and beds. The house does indeed have wonderful views and was very clean and well appointed. I would highly reccomend this house for your family vacation. The only draw-back was having to furnish our own towels and linens but there are services down there that make those rentals easy."

  • Wonderful home away from home

    "The "Four Seasons" was just what we were looking for. It's a modern, well-maintained, cozy home within a short walk of the ocean. The pool is perfect for small kids (3-year-old granddaughter loved it) and for cooling off after a day in the sun. We highly recommend."
