Stephanie   ·  Stayed July 2023

"Furniture was updated. Kitchen was well stocked. Accommodates a large crowd. Easy access to beach."

Derek   ·  Stayed July 2023

"The unobstructed view of the bay and ocean from the top floor is spectacular! Pool area is nice and large and the kids love the theater room."

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."

Kathy   ·  Stayed May 2023

"The home was beautiful and had everything we could have possibly needed. It was like living in paradise!!"

Thank you so much, Kathy, for your kind words and our family feels the same when we stay at "The Sound & The Sea". Just like Paradise.

"The Sound and The Sea was very well suited to what we needed to have memorable moments made together with family and friends."

We are so glad your family and friends had such a "memorable" time at our home in Corolla. Thanks for staying at "The Sound and The Sea"!!

Yes our family agrees with you.....the views are amazing!!!!!
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

"It was a fabulous home, bedrooms were great size , kitchen was amazing and well stocked , Gorgeous views from the 3rd floor( great open floor plan ). The home was in great condition on the inside. Our entire family were so pleased with the functionality of the home. Simply put ……. We will be back next year."

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

"House was great. Amazing sunsets and great location. Morning sun in ocean side bedrooms very intense for those who are not early risers. Could use some exterior work. Overall great house"

Joseph   ·  Stayed April 2021

"This house truly has the bedrooms and interior, the outside needs some love (aircons, painting, outside showers, etc....) Kitchen and gathering areas are great"

Hi Joseph, Thank you for the review. It was difficult this year to address everything on the exterior because we had all the siding of the house replaced, which was busy and hard to work around on the outside. The air conditioning units were just replaced in April. My painter is going to address the outdoor shower. We hope you come and visit us again soon. Take Care
Phyllis   ·  Stayed April 2021

"We had the best week ever at The Sound and the Sea! The house was beautiful and well stocked with everything we could ever want! Being able to enjoy the ocean as the front yard and the sunsets as the back yard was priceless! The beds were super comfortable! What more could you ask for in a beach vacation!! Thank you goes to the owners and the Twiddy team for making our home away from home so special!"

Hi Phyllis, Thank you for the review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope you come and stay with us again soon.
Brynn   ·  Stayed October 2020

"The interior of the home was pretty good with some good updates especially to the kitchen. The bathrooms were also nicely done. However the exterior of the home needed a lot of work with many holes in the siding and issues with some of the doors. The exterior furniture also needs updating. The kitchens pans were very old and there were not any usable pots except for huge ones."

Hi Brynn, Thank you for the review! We are the new owners of the house and we plan on doing some major work to the house exterior including new siding and trim, new doors and paint. I am purchasing new pots and pans, as per your suggestion and we will be getting new outdoor furniture. I hope you come and visit us again soon!
