We'd like to keep this gem of a house a secret all to ourselves, but in fairness to the owners who have obviously put much thought and care into this home, we need to let the cat out of the bag. The house was spotless upon check-in, and kitchen was very well stocked - plenty of dishes, pots/pans, utensils. Having 2 refrigerators was a huge plus. There were only 4 adults in our group, so we had plenty of space, but there would be plenty of room to spread out even if we were at max capacity. We enjoyed using the combo pool table/air hockey, and the Theatre room was great too! The elevator was so helpful and made lugging in all our groceries and bags a breeze. It was too cold to use the pool, but we did hang out there & the chaises were very comfortable. All in all, a great house that we'd highly recommend and plan to rent again next year. Thank you to the owners who thought of every little detail and for sharing their beautiful home!

This was by far one of the best houses we've stayed at with our tenure with Twiddy. The house was remarkably layed out with the spacious kitchen, living room and dining room. The 2 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers in the kitchen was a great idea and conveince! The furniture in living room was exceptionally nice and of a good quality as well as the deck furniture. All of the Televisions were reall nice and all worked well. Having an elevator was so nice, it made it so nice to move all of our supplies up to the kitchen area and helped all of us with bad knees travel from floor to floor. Everyone really liked all of the accommodations, very well designed without wasting space on huge bathrooms.

Is there anything within walking distance such as shops or things to do and are off road golf carts permitted on the streets? We are booked for next spring, cant wait for to get my family together for my retirement celebration!
Thank you for your inquiry! There are no paved roads on the northern Outer Banks beaches—travel is over loose sand roads and actual sand dunes. All-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles are not recommended for this area due to low ground clearance and traction concerns—our experience shows that AWD vehicles in this area are problematic at best. 4x4 vehicles with off-road ground clearance are recommended with reduced air pressure for beach travel. Please consult your vehicle manual and manufacturer for specific information. This home is approximately 25 minutes from the paved road where gas stations and grocery stores are located. There are not any attractions within walking distance of this home but it is just a short drive from the Carova Beach Park. The park is a great place to have a picnic or let the kids run around and play.

Is there cable in the house, or broadcast TV? Is the water and or ice from fridge filtered?
Jenny, V12197 provides satellite television. This home does have a water treatment system for the well water, however, it does not offer a water filtering system. Well water is safe to drink and use for cooking, cleaning, washing clothes, brushing your teeth but most people prefer to drink bottled water.

Hi Guys! Can't wait for our upcoming trip in May. The house has a movie theater. Can we stream live through netflix or do we need to bring DVD's? We were not sure how the set up is or if the WiFi would support live streaming! Thanks
Great question, Sue! This home does provide a BluRay player in the theater room. The WIFI should be able to support instant streaming, but you would need to bring your own accommodation for viewing that type of instant streaming as Netflix and/or similar device is not provided at the home.

Hello, I noticed in the description it says 9 miles … is this the walking distance to the beach? If so, do guests rent golf carts? What's the best way to make it easy. Thank you!!
Elyse, this home is located approximately 9.2 miles up the beach in the 4x4 area. Once you cross into the 4x4 area, you would drive approximately 9.2 miles north to reach the access ramp for this home. V12197 will have a private walkway to the beach so it will take just 1-2 minutes to walk to the beach. ATV/golf carts are not permitted in the 4x4 area.
