"A simple, classic beach house in a lovely community."

Lisa   ·  Stayed April 2022

"Very well kept, clean and updated. Close to the beach! Loved the new queen mattress on the middle level. Wish someone could let me know which Serta mattress it is so I can buy one for my home!"

Thanks for staying at 139 Skimmer Way. The Serta Perfect Sleeper was a Brookton Plush purchased from America’s Mattress. Please come again!

"We have stayed here several times over the years. Comfortable and simple, it is a great beach house in lovely Sanderling. Deck is new, could use some new chairs."

Steve   ·  Stayed July 2021

"Gavaghan was a great vacation house. Updated, very clean, and super close to the beach. We had a very relaxing week."

Greg   ·  Stayed July 2021

"We were not sure what to expect when we found only one of two vacation homes left in OBX for the 4th of July week. What an amazing find in Gavaghan. Perfect for a family of four in the quiet Sanderling community. The wrap-around and recently upgraded deck was quite pleasing and the home was quiet and comfortable. The beach was not crowded. My only ask would be for the owners to invest in new deck furniture to help capture the amazing sunrise and sunsets. We will stay here again."

Faith   ·  Stayed May 2021

"Great location with a very nice deck for viewing the ocean. Walk to the beach is easy and the area surrounding the house is lovely for exploration and evening walks. Good house for 3-5 people."

Chase   ·  Stayed May 2021

"This house was perfect for my little family. Being in a culdasac and so close to the boardwalk was a relief for having a small child. Overall the property felt like home. Highly recommend"

Alexandra   ·  Stayed September 2020

"The location was outstanding...the decor and furniture was dated. But, the price was pretty good considering the proximity to the beach."
