The home was incredible and better than we expected. The owners have gone the extra mile in design and comfort to make everything just right for the guest experience. We have been visiting the OBX for 23 years and have never stayed in or seen a home that compares. Thank you to the owners and to Twiddy for a wonderful two weeks. No complaints, no not one!
- Anthony 5/13/2017
We truly enjoyed the Les Dunes Estate. Not only is the home beautifully designed and structured, but it truly feels like a home away from home and not a vacation rental. We have already put a hold on the home for next year!
- Martin 5/6/2017
It's a standout paradise on a world class beach. The complete attention to the experience separates this home into the top tier. It is, one of the finest locations to host a family vacation. If you could hit the pause button in life, this might be the exact spot to do it in.

Les Dunes was fantastic. Beautiful home, Beautiful decor. Spacious rooms. Just fantastic!

Les Dunes was absolutely incredible. The privacy was nothing I have seen in 14 years renting in the OBX, it was like we were on our own private island. The beds were also the very best we have encountered in the OBX. The Viking double oven/cooktop and Sub-Zero appliances were just what we were looking for?? The guest house was also incredible and will book this house again without question. Can't wait to come back! P.S.S The kuerig machines were a plus and the upper outdoor screened dining area was awesome. I could go on and on!
