"Nice home. Clean. Comfortable beds. Fully equipped."

Susie   ·  Stayed July 2023

"So many features to love, starting with the location with a view of the water from the main level. The pool was a must-have and this home delivered! The pool was clean, serviced, and the right size for a bunch of kids and adults playing and relaxing. The layout of the house was perfect for us: Plenty of together *and* alone space, a must have for multiple families. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, etc. And plenty of towels and a clean house :-)"

"Clean home with great view. Although oceanfront it does not have direct beach access but we were able to access beach by short walk. Saw horses right in the driveway and yard. Well laid out."

Lynn   ·  Stayed May 2023

"The home was absolutely gorgeous. The view was amazing . We loved seeing the wild horses so close. Everything was so clean"

Karen   ·  Stayed July 2022
Kathleen   ·  Stayed May 2022

"The home was clean and ready to go for us at check-in. A sweet little welcoming gift bag was a pleasant surprise. Small issue with an outside outlet and it was rectified quickly. The house was exactly what was described, and the kitchen was much more fully stocked them previous houses that we have stayed at with other companies. The horses are everywhere!!! It was incredible!!!! Check- out was also a simple process. We have used a few other companies and have always had issues throughout our entire week stay, and someone suggested we try Twiddy. I will never use another company beside Twiddy!!! They are the best!!! Thank you for a great trip!!! See you next year!!"

Kay   ·  Stayed May 2022

"We love seeing the horses although we didn't see any because of storm. 2nd floor master bedrooms need blinds, we had to put up towels in windows."

Robin   ·  Stayed April 2022

"The location was wonderful, it felt as though we spent our vacation with the horses. One of the reasons for the vacation was to see the horses. From this home, we had a majestic window both of the ocean, the dune and especially the horses. Throughout the day we would look out and maybe four or five, maybe just one or maybe none but it was always interesting."

Holly   ·  Stayed June 2021

"Great location! Has all the "stuff"-- pool; hot tub; direct beach access. The water pressure could be a little higher, but you can't have everything. But the location and the layout of the cottage was perfect!"

Michele   ·  Stayed May 2021

"for the last many years we have come to the outer banks and started our rental history with Twiddy not ony have they been wonderful this house has been perfect always clean and always welcoming.... we have enjoyed the many years we have stayed here and wish we could continue to rent this home but my MS has progressed and I will have to be on a single level home or one with an elevator from this time forward. but I will always have wonderful memories of this home and the vacations we have spent here looking at the perfect sunrise over the Ocean the walks with my dog along the beaches the horses as they graze across the dunes .... second thoughts is more like our first thought when we think of getting away. and twiddy is a wonderful company to rent from. second toughts will always be first thougths in my heart Thank You!!!"

"I have stayed at Second Thoughts 6 times in three years! Almost thought it was mine....they've done some really nice improvements to it this year."

Jeff   ·  Stayed September 2020

"First impression was that the house is tired and in need of some TLC. One example, the kitchen is missing cabinet faces and some baseboards. The lower level included a new ping pong and foosball table, which was nice!"

Sean   ·  Stayed August 2020

"Love the house and it’s location. It had everything we needed."

Karen   ·  Stayed June 2020

"This is a great home! The pictures don’t reflect some of the upgrades, including granite counter tops In the kitchen. Game room was perfect with ping pong and day bed with trundle. Tommy Bahama beach chairs were a nice touch. Views are amazing of course. Would have given 5 stars if water pressure was better; we managed but it was pretty weak at times."

Amy   ·  Stayed May 2020
Charles   ·  Stayed May 2020

"The home was well maintained, clean, had all of the amenities we could ask for and an excellent getaway spot for me, the wife and our four legged pup. Thanks for a great time and kudos to the pool cleaner! He had a monstrous task after three straight days of blowing sand and rain."
