"This has been the best home we rented in OBX thus far! The home was beautiful and accommodated 11 of us perfectly. Being so close to the beach made it so easy with 4 children of all different ages as you can access the home within seconds (nap time, lunch, snacks, pool, etc.). No need to drag beach carts/wagons as you are steps away from the sand! The convenience made our vacation much more enjoyable. :-)"
