Christopher   ·  Stayed June 2023

"We love this home's proximity to the beach. You can easily see the beach from the upper deck. The home is spacious and kitchen is well appointed. The game room and lower level kitchen are a great asset too."

"Life is Golden was the perfect home for our family and friends this vacation."

Ava   ·  Stayed August 2022

"This is our 4th time staying in Life is Golden. We love this house. The location is perfect and the upper deck is our favorite for morning coffee and star gazing at night. The new leather sectional was a great addition. Some of the mattresses could be replaced but other then that. It’s a great home and we hope to call it home again next summer. Twiddy is also a great company and very responsive!"

Kelly   ·  Stayed July 2022

"Loved the whole set up. Perfect fit for us. Living space was great!"

Rosemary   ·  Stayed July 2022

"This has been our best Outer Banks home yet in our 20 years vacationing there. House is very well appointed: spacious, extremely well-stocked kitchen with double appliances for large groups. Very tasteful decor. Game room and theater were great for the kids (and adults), pool and hot tub were clean, and a nice, new outside grill. Lots of really comfortable beach chairs. We were so sorry to leave and have already put next year on hold for our return. A definite 5+ stars."

Gail   ·  Stayed September 2021

"This was the best beach house we have had the pleasure of renting. Our group numbers 16 and we had a fabulous time. There was plenty of comfortable gathering areas inside and outside the house. We especially enjoyed the "bird's nest" as we called the deck on the dune! We always have a crowd in the kitchen cooking and hanging out and there was room for all of us. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment and dishes."

Leeanne   ·  Stayed June 2021

"Top notch with all the amenities. Kitchen was well stocked and oragnized. The ice maker was awesome. Short walk to the beach on a beautiful boardwalk with a gazebo platform. Outdoor furniture on the decks and around the pool was also top notch and plentiful. Beautifully decorated!"

"This was a dream vacation home!! The owners definitely care about their property and it shows in the maintenance of the home and the welcoming atmosphere created within. There are SO many amenities, we felt like royalty. We will definitely return to this beautiful place in the future."

"Beautiful well appointed home. Also only two Mins from a boat dock where we could use our jet skis. Love the secluded nature of the 4x4 area where our group has stayed on numerous other occasions. Life is Golden is top notch. The home was clean and organized when we arrived. Would stay here again."
