"The place was pretty nice, fit our group well and we had some great times there. The outer banks is a beautiful place. Most of the beds were comfortable. There were a few issues with the house. Several plumbing problems including clogging toilets and poor drainage to go along with yellow well water. None of the TVs on the second floor work. One of the washing machines didn’t work and the grills weren’t really in a usable condition. I’m sure the new owners plan on doing some renovations to it soon. All in all the house was great and Twiddy tried to solve any issues they could while 30 people were staying there. We will certainly miss the place , the pool was great and the theatre was a hit. I would recommend the place just don’t expect it to be perfect."

"Sand break was a beautiful home for our families to gather in to celebrate our parents 60th anniversary. The home was spacious enough for 38 of us to spend the week together without falling over each other. The kitchen/dining was amazing to be able to feed the crowd all week. The sleeping arrangements worked well with all the families. Another bunk room would have been helpful. The beach was amazing and the horses visited everyday!!!"

"We loved the area but the house had a laundry list of things that needed to be replaced, repaired and even cleaned. Somethings they never got around to getting to."

Kathi   ·  5/29/2021

"Overall we had a good time - but there where some issues with the house and there are a number of things that need to be updated. There were 3 ice machines in the house and 1 in the cabana and the only one that worked was the outside one in the cabana - so we had to keep refilling the upstairs refrigerators with the ice from the cabana. The TV's on the second floor did not work at all. We lost power to 3 of the bedrooms on the first floor for the last 2 days. The smoke detectors went off every 10 minutes throughout the house for 2 nights while we were trying to sleep. The water was discolored and smelled bad and we kept running out of hot water in the showers. One of the gas grills caught on fire due the grease and age of the grill. We did call and they sent someone out that took the bad grill but never came back with a new one. They also sent someone who came out for the ice machines and said that the 2 refrigerators on the top floor needed to be fixed but never were and the ice machine on the first floor wasn't plugged in, but even after plugging it in it did not work. If the issues would have been dealt with and fixed immediately, our vacation would have been a 10 out of 10. We did make the best of it though."

"Pros- Exclusive memorable view from top and second floor, great dining area. and wonderful privacy. Amazing view of sunrise and sunset. Cons- home theater equipment outdated ( we couldn't use it) , grill out dated/ in poor condition( needs to be updated). Pool / table tennis/ foosball equipment needs repairs or replacement. poolside bar and area was unusable. Hot tub works but could use an update to match such an amazing location. Our group had an awesome time."

Twiddy's Response:
Thank you for your review! The home theatre is set up for guests to view DVDs (no satellite service or ability to plug in another device). The home has a propane grill and a charcoal grill, with plans to add a 2nd propane grill soon! During your stay, new pool cues were dropped off and that equipment is assessed weekly. Given the time of year you stayed, the outside of the home was still winterized - this included the cabana, outside toilet, outside shower, and pool. We are glad you enjoyed your

"Very nice ocean front house. Some refurbishment needed. Should have the option for heating the pool."

"Sand Break is dated but doable for a large group. The layout of the home is wonderful. Unfortunately, a number of things are ragged or broken."
