Harold   ·  Stayed June 2024

"The Sound and the Sea is fully stocked, the upkeep is excellent and it is evident the owners put money into the house through upgrades and overall maintenance. The location is great with a wide open beach, great ocean and sound views, and we look forward to coming back next year (our 4th in a row)!"

Lynn   ·  Stayed June 2024

"This home was fantastic before all the latest updates! We were completely “wowed” by the new kitchen, new and additional appliances, new A/C, new primary bathroom, updated game room appliances, new sink in laundry room, new decor in elevator, new living room decor, new beds….The 2 commercial washers/dryers are a lifesaver, and the Dyson on each level make it easy to keep the floors clean. The new kitchen sink and two new dishwashers makes meal cleanup a breeze. This was our third year in this home. We are very appreciative for everything these homeowners do to make our family vacation wonderful, and we treat this home as though we own it."

Sue   ·  Stayed May 2024

Lynn   ·  Stayed June 2023

"We have already reserved this home for 2024. We bring 8 people, and it gives us plenty of room to spread out. The location is fantastic, the beach uncrowded. The house with the elevator, ( for supplies and for the grandparents) two dishwashers, three Dyson's, and three washers and dryers is a dream - not to mention the beautiful furnishings, wonderful bathrooms, game room, pool, and beach access."

Abigail   ·  Stayed October 2022

"The home was beautifully designed and decorated, and so well supplied! Stunning views! Our favorite of all the OBX homes we have stayed in so far. The only disappointment is that it does not have the “first right of refusal” option, as we would have loved to come back again but our week for next year was already taken."

Abigail our family is so glad this was your favorite of all the OBX homes you have stayed at. We spend a lot of time and effort each year to make sure it stays in the best shape it can be!

Michele And Justin   ·  Stayed August 2022

"We have been vacationing in Outer Banks for 13 years, most of which have been through Twiddy homes. This was by far the best home we’ve stayed at. Besides being beautiful, it was well stocked with pots and pans, silverware, and dishes. The game room and theater room were an awesome addition and the views were remarkable. We hated to leave…."

Thank you Hyslop's family. We are so glad to hear this was your best rental stay in 13 years at the OBX. Likewise, we hate to leave "The Sound and the Sea" when we visit. It is an incredible house with the most incredible views!
John   ·  Stayed July 2022

We can't wait to see you again next year!
Terry   ·  Stayed July 2022

"We loved this property. One of the best stocked kitchens we’ve ever had (glasses, plates, utensils, etc.)."

This is what we like to hear. We want our guest to have everything needed for an enjoyable week at "The Sound and the Sea", Thanks for coming!
Sharon   ·  Stayed June 2022

"Loved the decorating and “wall of windows” overlooking the ocean. The elevator made it easy to bring up luggage and groceries. The house was generally lovely!"

Thank you Sharon for your "Thumbs Up" review and we hope that you will stay in our home again soon.
Maryann   ·  Stayed May 2022

"We loved the beautiful views from the decks- sunrise and sunset! We enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub. The numerous bedrooms with their own baths met everyone's needs from our 8 month old to our 65 year old. We all loved this house."

We agree the views are beautiful and amazing! It's like a dream.
Jay   ·  Stayed April 2022
