The home was fabulous, the views are completely stunning from all angles. If not for dirty bedsheets, no response besides "that's gross" from Twiddy, the dead fish smell by the bar, and a slow ice machine, the house is incredible. The floors could have been vacuumed better (especially in master bedroom between the bed/night stands -lots of dust and dog hair). But again, it worked for all of us, great space, pool was older, but still nice, and again, back to the views. No walkway to the beach, like neighboring houses had, but not a bad walk down the road. Would stay again if price was reduced dramatically. Great setting/location for my wedding. The extra deck space was perfect and accommodated 75 guests, dj, caterer, cookie table and dance floor easily. With a little better care and TLC, this place could really be stunning -especially with the ocean and sound views. Although, the grill under the steps doesn't seem the safest.

What is the water quality like? (Plumbing) because I've heard it looks like well water.
Hi Patrick, homes with private wells occasionally experience low pressure, salty, distasteful or discolored water. There may be an unpleasant sulfur odor. Private well water may discolor hair and/or clothing. Some guests choose to use bottled water for drinking purposes even though the water is tested regularly for contaminants.

I have an all wheel drive Chevy Equinox. Would I be able to drive it to the house? Or do you have to have a 4 wheel vehicle.
Sherrie, 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.
