"That's My Desire is our favorite OBX vacation home, and we've stayed in many. This is the 3rd year in a row to stay at this house, and we've already reserved it again for next year. The house is perfect for us, with plenty of space for several families, it's beautifully furnished and decorated, it has a fantastic kitchen with everything you could want, and has awesome views of the beach. Thanks so much to the owners for opening their home to us and our dog. It is very much appreciated."

"Early season is divine! I was recovering from a serious case of bronchitis and the fresh ocean air and the sound of waves crashing plus dolphins playing and pelicans in formation made for a wonderful healing week. Drake and Kari and a friend with their 2 dogs were on the beach all week since it was mostly sunny after thinking it would be wet every day. Rains came at night or early morning but cleared during daylight hours until the day we left. We have been at That's My Desire for 6 years now and we love the house and its waterfront location and comfortable design and we are already looking forward to our visit next year. Just wish we could stay longer!"

Peggy   ·  Stayed April 2022

"My home away from home for 30 years"

Alicia   ·  Stayed April 2022

"Well appointed home that is perfect for a large family. Great views and close to the beach. We had a wonderful stay. The kitchen and living space are large and perfect for family and the rooms provide ample space for you to have private space and time if you need to chill alone. The kitchen and living room are above the majority of the bedrooms so if you’re a light sleeper and have others who go to bed late you will be able to hear people or dogs walking above. The freezer didn’t shut completely/easily nor beep if it wasn’t fully closed so that was an issue with our ice cream staying frozen."

Charlotte   ·  Stayed March 2022

"On the beach, allows pets, nicely appointed and decorated. Up to date decor."

Mary   ·  Stayed March 2022

"Great views, pet friendly, well stocked kitchen, great views of sunrise and sunset!"
