"Best vacation house we have ever rented. Well built, quiet. Pool area was phenomenal."
"This home is definitely not the “cookie cutter” style. The way it’s situated lengthwise against the ocean is amazing to see the ocean the whole width of this home. It needs some TLC here and there but did not effect our stay (this is our second time around)."
"Beautiful home with lots of amenities and great furnishings. We loved the fire pit and spent almost every night by it. We also enjoyed the putting green. The location is very private and quiet."
"Top tier home quality, thoughtful design, and a propitious location. The home's location's makes you feel like you are on a cruise ship. Wide expanse of ocean on one side and the Currituck sound on the other. The pool area is a resort type level of entertainment. We had a few families with smaller children. The kids played in the pool and hot tub, played mini golf, had snacks at the bar...while the adults sat in porch swings that were all in the shade. For hours we were able to relax and catch up. The beach is essentially private as our families played together with an abundance of space. We also enjoyed a short walk on the Audubon trail, which was a 5 minute walk from the home. The kitchen was well stocked and had a great layout for everyone to enjoy meals together. The sauna was a huge hit after swimming in the ocean. The theatre room had a great layout for different family sizes and ages. The south deck screen porch was nothing short of magical. We spent hours on the deck watching the ocean, the moonrise, and sunsets. Everyone in the group made the easy decision, let's return next year. Exquisite experience. Wonderful memories."
"We have been looking at this house for many years but it was never a rental. When it came on the market we booked it right away, it did not disappoint. It was private it was immaculate and more then we could have hoped for. We have been coming down to the outer banks for many years and have never stayed in the same house twice. we booked for next year and this will be our go to house from now on. We absolutely LOVED it."
"The home sits on a beautiful lot with oceanfront privacy. The house is very nice, but also very dated for its comps in the market. There were many frustrating issues to contend with -- the refrigerator not working properly, the icemakers not working, the A/C system was very uneven with rooms either freezing or hot, and the electrical lighting system was very clunky to work with. We had the refrigerator serviced but it still didn't get cold -- and having to go down two levels to access a working refrigerator really isn't acceptable for a house of this size and cost. We have been coming to the Outer Banks for over 40 years and the midges were the worst they have ever been. Not sure if more could have been done to deal with this at our property but it was another issue. We enjoyed a relaxing week with our family and the home was welcoming. But to be rented again, I would recommend that the issues referenced above (and others) be addressed."
