"Beautiful home close to beach access. The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate 12 people. We loved the the convenience of having two sets of washer and dryers, and dish washers. The pool was a perfect place to hang out and relax."

Melody   ·  Stayed June 2023

"We spent the week with our 4 married children and 10 grandchildren. There was plenty of space for everyone. The layout was terrific. The kids loved the pool. We all enjoyed the hot tub. The upgrades from last year were very much appreciated, The deck, washer and dryers, hot water heater, and more. The living room looks small, but some sat at the card table and others on the upper level. I also loved enjoying my morning coffee and having my quiet time on the deck. This house really accommodates a big family .We all loved how close the house was to the beach. Thank you to the owners for the books and board games.Thank you so much for providing such a great house for families, like our's, to gather and make memories."

Shelley   ·  Stayed August 2022

"This is a beautiful home my whole family loved. We finally found the perfect house! The proximity to the beach is great, the house is large and spacious. We never felt like we were cramped. The kitchen is the most well stocked of any home we’ve ever rented. This is our 5th year coming to the OBX for family vacation. The beds are so comfortable. We loved the ocean view from the top deck and had a blast in the pool. This place is truly a gem."

Melody   ·  Stayed June 2022

"Our married children and grandchildren loved this house. The location to the beach is wonderful. There are two ovens, two dishwashers, two washing machines, pool, hot tub, pool table, basketball hoop, a table to play games. The living room is small but provides ample seating. There is an upper level where some sat and still enjoyed the television. I had voiced concern about the safety of the deck, for our grandchildren, after reading reviews. The floor of the deck has been replaced with Trex decking. It's perfect! Thank you to the owners for providing a great home for a big family to gather."

"We enjoyed the house very much. Beach access and beach are very close to the house. Pool is nice. Views from the upper deck are awesome, you can see the sunrise between the two ocean front homes. Kitchen was pretty stocked with pans, plates, glasses, kitchen utensils etc. Beds are very comfortable. House was very clean."

"We rented this home for our family reunion in July 2020. The house was clean and spacious. All the linens were fresh! And thank goodness for the 2 washers and dryers...we did laundry mid week so everyone had fresh towels. No beach towels are provided, but we brought our own. The layout of the house was amazing. It was very quiet and there were separate spaces for the adults and the kids to hang out. We especially loved the extra seating in the kitchen for kids and adults to eat meals together. That's a rare find in other houses we looked at! The kitchen was also fully stocked! We brought paper products thinking there wouldn't be enough dishes for our large group, but there were plates, bowls, silver ware, pots, pans, knife sets, and other electrical appliances galore! A very well stocked rental, for sure! We loved the number of master bedrooms with en suites. We loved the King sized mattresses in the master bedrooms as well! The mattresses were so so comfortable! The double bunk room was so fun for all the girl cousins to sleep in one room! They loved it! The masterbath on L3 needed new caulking and a drain check, but other than that, everything worked great! The location is perfect! We could see and hear the ocean from the top two decks. It's also just steps away from the beach. The private boardwalk in the cul de sac made it so convenient to get to the beach. The location of the house was great too for bathroom runs, food runs, or bringing the little kids home to nap in the middle of the day. Love, love, love the location! There are 2 outdoor showers with hot and cold water! These were so convenient when we got back from the beach to shower and then jump in the pool. Our kids loved swimming! The new hot tub was a nice plus! The only down side to this house was the number of light switches! Someone needs to take a label maker and label everything! It was a game every night figuring out what light switches controlled the lights. The TVs were also small and the internet was very slow, especially at night when everyone was streaming. But hey, we all need to learn to unplug during vacation, right? We also wished there was a garbage disposal, but understand why there wasn't. We highly recommend this rental and plan to rent it again in the future! Thanks Twiddy for an amazing stay! See you next time!"

Thank you so much for your great review of our home! We take pride in our home and make updates every year. It warms my heart that your family had a wonderful reunion and that you love OBX as much as we do!
