"We have been coming to the Outer Banks for over twenty years - we have always stayed at "Making memories" (used to be Charchan). My now grown children have so many amazing memories of their time in this house and in the community. The house is updated, lots of common area room which is great as our extended family joined us as well. I called about one thing and the Twiddy staff was professional, polite and helpful. Issue was resolved before day's end. I appreciate the soft cooler with critical items for our arrival - soap, paper towels, sponge, garbage bag etc. After a 15 hour drive, I have no energy to go to the grocery store! A couple of suggestions - two coffee makers were there, one was not functional (I put it up in the closet) and the other one was circa 1970 and just wasn't easy to figure out. I bought another one and left it there. There needs to be a dish drainer! Also, it would be GREAT to have some sort of process to donate food that has literally not been opened - I have a limited amount of space in the car so generally can't take it all - and I hate just throwing it out! The hot tub was an excellent addition to the house. The grill area is lovely and we appreciate using the grill during our visit. Thank you again for a wonderful two weeks!"

"great view, pet friendly, very comfortable for family dining/living/game playing"

Mary Lloyd   ·  Stayed August 2022

"Great location! We’ll kept, clean and comfortable home (except the pillows and the noisy king frame in the top floor master). Nice uncrowded area of Duck - close to both Duck village and Corolla. Excellent responsiveness from Twiddy staff for the small issue of one less beach chair than advertised. Lots and lots of fun!"

Bowman   ·  Stayed July 2022

Michelle   ·  Stayed October 2020

"It was a great home. Had everything we needed! The view was spectacular!"

Maurice   ·  Stayed October 2020

"Excellent home in great location. Lots of kitchen ware and utensils. Great deck for viewing ocean. Only criticism is that the mattresses on most of the beds on the second floor squeak so badly that it's really hard to sleep. Should be replaced. Otherwise, great place to stay."

Glad you enjoyed the home and thank you for the feedback. The second floor King and the two Queen bedrooms now have new and higher quality mattresses for 2021.

"We enjoyed this home a lot. It's updated and well-appointed--beautifully situated right on the beach. We had 3 couples, 4 kids, 1 baby, and our sweet golden retriever, and we all had plenty of space (and our own bathrooms!). The kitchen is nice and spacious but could be better stocked with pots, pans, a dustpan for broom. Also the toaster was not really functional; it took some doing to get it to work--none of these these things detracted from our stay--they are minor upkeep items that can be quickly remedied. The beds were comfortable but creaked very loudly--once we were settled and asleep for the night, no big deal--just tough if you've got a baby you're trying not to wake. The family/great room area was roomy/comfortable and had a nice selection of games--we had a fun game of Scrabble on a rainy day. The multiple eating areas in this home work really well for a large group. We ended up with a dining table and a "game table." It would be nice to have stairs from the main level going down so you could exit to the ground level from there, but you can't beat the views and we enjoyed having the outdoor table for lunch. Overall this is an enjoyable and roomy vacation home. Our group had a wonderful time!"

We really appreciate your positive comments and thank you for the feedback. The kitchen has since been replenished with a new toaster and the other items mentioned. The second floor King and two Queen bedrooms now have new and higher quality mattresses for 2021.

"This was our second year in this home and it was even better than last year. It seems like the home owners are upgrading the landscape and the interior is great for families. We did a lot of cooking this year and had plenty of kitchen equipment. Great family house!"
