"Loved that all rooms had private bathrooms and king beds except for bunk room. Kitchen was very well stocked, there was nothing that we needed that it did not have. The upper deck chairs make it easy to see the view and are comfortable. 2 Great rooms furniture had ample seating and very comfortable. 2 ice makers are also a great plus."
"Our third year at this well maintained property. We already booked for 2024. The kitchen is well equipped for family of cooks. We particularly like to view sunrises and moonrises from the comfortable stools on the deck."
"Terrific home. Wish the microwave upstairs worked."
"layout, very well supplied- extra pillows, kitchenwares"
"Beautiful home with big windows to watch both sea and sound. Pool has a large shallow area for little ones. Kitchen is huge with placeware for an army. Large 3rd floor family area. Separate Ice makers first and 3rd floor. Many other features. Best Outer Banks home we have had"
"This house is great in every way! Kitchen well stocked! Plenty of room, wonderful bedrooms. Lovely pool and yard! Just a great place to vacation!"
"Ocean front and pool"
"Well stocked kitchen. Beach access. Large pool and bedrooms."
"Beautifully-appointed home in an excellent location. Always immaculate. Tasteful, personal touches in nearly every room make this house feel more like a home than a rental. One of the very best we've stayed in (and we've probably rented over a dozen in the last 25 years.)"
"Perfect beach home. Great location, beautifully maintained. We will be going back for our fourth straight year. John Skoczlas"
"Great place and fully equipped. Our family enjoyed our stay again this year. We are renting it for the third time next year. We really appreciate the Cabana service! At my age it is tough to lug the equipment to the beach."
"We had a wonderful stay at Far Niente! The views from both sides of the house were amazing. It was so nice being able to swim in the pool, and then simply walk down the private walkway to the beach. Great memories that we will cherish"
"Very well furnished and a great design. Fully stocked kitchen. Great location on the beach! Very comfortable home!"
"We all loved how well the kitchen is stocked with all kinds of utensils, etc. The home is well furnished, has great ocean views, etc., etc. It met all the expectations we have for a very expensive ocean front home. Liked it so much that we've rented it for the same time next year!! NOTE: Meant to tell you this when we left - the Disposall in the small kitchen sink does not work."
"Beautiful views both ocean and sound"
"Great views, well-designed floor plan and extremely well-stocked kitchen."
"The location is excellent and the home is very comfortable. The kitchen is well fitted out with any appliance one could ask for. Loved having an elevator which is a lifesaver for hauling luggage and groceries. The hot tub was a wonderful spot to warm up and chat."
Thanks for taking time to fill out a survey and for sharing your suggestions.
"Location, very-welled stocked kitchen, floor plan."
"Been there two years. Great house. Everything just perfect as far as my family is concerned. Midges and spiders an easily dealt with. Not the owners fault. Will always rent this beautiful and spacious home."
I glad you enjoyed the home and understand about the midges. We do have the house and furniture power washed about every 2 weeks but it only takes one night to regress. Glad to see you'll return next year
"The home is very well equipped. It worked very well for our family of 12 with a great kitchen to support all of our cooks. We came at the end of the summer and I would recommend that the owners power wash the decks and outside furniture several times during the season. They were covered in bug remains and spiders."
Glad to see you're returning next year and thank you for coming this year. We have been power washing about every 2 weeks but unfortunately it's very difficult to keep the bugs away. We have discussed this with the rental company and they seem not to have a solution. If it's bad when you arrive, please call them and ask for the house to be power washed.
"This was our second year at Far Niente and we loved it. The views were fantastic, the kitchen contained every possible utensil you can imagine, and some we had no idea what to do with. The living areas on all three floors were very comfortable and stylishly furnished. For our family reunion of 18 members, it was perfect."
"Great house with plenty of space for any size group to enjoy! Well stocked kitchen with any appliance or gadget you could want. Plenty of games and books to use during rainy weather. We loved our week at this house from the layout to the location - the owners have really thought of everything it takes to enjoy a week at the beach and more!"

The house is very well maintained and just a wonderful layout. Everything was great.
