"The highlights of this home: dog-friendly, oceanfront, and in the lovely community of Sanderling with its classic homes and walking trails. The hot tub is nice in cooler months."

"Everything was wonderful!! We love that this house accommodates our entire family comfortably."

"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 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
