"Location is excellent, both to Duck and the beach. Pool is very nice. Kitchen is very well stocked and you won't need to bring any extra kitchen items."

Margaret   ·  Stayed August 2023

"House was in a great location! Kitchen was very well stocked with all kinds of appliances, dishes and cookware. The house had a great pool and was so close to the ocean. Bathrooms were older/small but clean. We had a wonderful week."

Pamela   ·  Stayed May 2023

"A call to maintenance about a sliding door which was off the track and would not open or close was answered promptly and cheerfully. The man who responded was there within about 90 minutes, and he was helpful, friendly, and funny; he took the door off entirely, then repaired and reset it on the track. It worked beautifully. Doctor's Orders has the very best equipped kitchen we've ever seen in a vacation rental, hands down! The only tool I didn't find was a pie lifter! They have equipped this kitchen for all-holiday cooking and family entertaining, with dual toasters, triple crockpots, blender, all sizes of casseroles, pots and pans, etc. These owners have even thought of the little things, like corn holders, individual dip/dressing/condiment dishes and cups, etc. The home is also equipped with super-comfortable beds, nice furnishings, and plenty of pool and beach equipment for a family. Thank you! NOTE TO TWIDDY MANAGEMENT: We should mention that we noticed as we were preparing for check-out--and drained/cleaned out, accumulated water from the cheese/cold-cut pullout bin at the bottom of the French door refrigerator. We THINK it may be that the ice maker/water dispenser has a clogged line or another problem which is causing that water accumulation."

Carol   ·  Stayed September 2022

"The home was beautifully furnished, clean, well stocked and the view of the ocean exquisite! The location is our our preference, within waking distance to town."

Sandra   ·  Stayed September 2022

"Doctor's Orders was perfect for our family. Great equipped kitchen, nice pool, wonderful views and location. Easy renting with Twiddy. Only negative was cleanliness of dining area floor and outdoor furniture."

Donna   ·  Stayed July 2022

"I've been vacationing at the OBX for 10+ years and this house had the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. It was perfect for our family."

Rebecca   ·  Stayed July 2022

"The views are incredible. All the furniture is new, beautiful, and most importantly, comfortable. The kitchen is the best equipped we've ever had - high quality, lots of dishes, and they thought of everything. The new pool is amazing. The outdoor furniture/cushions are great, plenty of comfortable seating - also the best we've ever had in a beach house."

Bernard   ·  Stayed June 2022

"We loved the view from the deck. We enjoyed the new pool."

Barb   ·  Stayed June 2022

"The view was amazing! Sitting on the upper deck, we could watch the grandkids play in the surf, collect shells, catch a few waves and enjoy our morning coffee or a nightcap. The pool was very nice! We made many wonderful memories."

Margaret   ·  Stayed May 2022

"Location is great! New pool is lovely!!"

Charlene   ·  Stayed May 2022

"Fantastic location and plenty of room. Quick access to the beach and an easy stroll to the shops and restaurants in town. Everything we needed was already in the home, which made our stay perfectly relaxing!"
