"The windowed perch at the top of the house, screened in deck, how new the house appeared to be. The ping pong table."

Krystyna   ·  Stayed October 2023

"Year three staying in this wonderful home. Loved the addition of the screened in porch and upper deck! Perfect for morning yoga and coffee ❤️see you next year for year#4. We won’t stay anywhere else, we found our perfect doggie friendly holiday home!"

"Location was wonderful! Short walk to thr beach. Each level of the house had a deck… top deck was great for sunrise or sunset. Each level had a hose to wash of sandy feet. Plenty of blankets and pillows. Top sunroom was cute too. We loved it! On the quiet cul de sac too, that was a bonus. The grass was green and lush. No complaints from us! Easy check in and check out! Thank you Twiddy for a job well done, and thank you to the homeowner for letting us borrow their lovely place!❤️"

"We loved the proximity to the beach, the number of bedrooms, kitchen was well stocked, just about everything! The spice rack and ice machine were nice touches!"

Marina   ·  Stayed June 2023

"Beautiful decks and views from the upper deck especially! We had a wonderful time at this house! The yard is perfect for dogs and the beach access is excellent"

Louis   ·  Stayed May 2023

"It has everything. We stayed here last year and already booked for next year! The only issues we experienced were with the pool heater which was fixed after a service call"

"Second year at this wonderful home, can’t wait for next year!"

Elizabeth   ·  Stayed July 2022

"A very well equipped kitchen- the only one I have ever rented that had a rolling pin . A surprise bonus was some toddler equipment. I loved the ship's watch- a great place to sit with computer or book and watch the sea and sky. Another great feature that I have not encountered before is a shaded grassy area so dogs can be outside and sheltered from the sun for part of the day."

"Great house! Plenty of room for everyone and very well appointed."

Mark   ·  Stayed July 2022

"This was a wonderful place to stay for two legged and four legged guests alike. The room at the very top was a cozy place to enjoy a great view and to put a puzzle together on a drizzly day. It had a well appointed kitchen and large dining area. The decks were pristine. We spent lots of time around and in the pool - what an oasis. We appreciated having so many beach chairs, the built in baby gates, a great corn hole game and a giant ice maker in the basement. The fenced in backyard is brilliant! Our dogs thank you! It was a short walk to the beach and we would definitely stay there again. Thank you to the Gray family for their generous, yummy and thoughtful gifts of a cookie platter and wine & cheese basket - good to the last drop."

"Very clean and great location. Easy access to the beach"

"My family stayed in Life's Porpoise the week of May 1st. It's a very comfortable house, with lots of space to gather or even to find a quiet spot to read or to check work email. 3 levels outside and 4 levels inside give you lots of choices. It also means that you need to plan on climbing a lot of stairs over the course of the week. Stairs inside the house, outside the house, and up and over the dunes using the closeby walkway access. You cannot see the beach, but you can hear the ocean. The house has lots of toys that you might otherwise rent. It has a kayak. It has a nice propane grill. It has a variety of beach chairs. It has a ping pong table. It has cornhole. It has lots of gently used books. That's several hundred dollars you won't spend at the rental company. The pool catches a lot of sun, and it was actually over 80 degrees the afternoon of May 1st. The chairs and tables on the two decks and on the ground floor were in very good condition. The kitchen is actually too well equipped. All the cabinets were full of cups and plates and glasses and pots and pans....where to put the food? Oh, there is a wonderful Harris Teeter about a mile from the house, and a very nice Food Lion a bit farther north. No need to go south to Duck or even further. This was our third stay booked through Twiddy, whom we rely upon for insights and advice. I find the Twiddy website and app very easy to use, and I enjoy the convenience of getting the text message when the house is ready to occupy."

"The Ship's Watch room is spectacular. I could sit up there all day! The updated furniture and decor is also really nice. The pool and all-fenced yard was an added bonus."
