"This was our 4th year at Sunsational and it works perfect for our family! Good location to restaurants and shops and a short walk to the beach! Can't wait to see what the new owners do with it! Hope to spend may more years at Sunsational!"

Thank you. We can’t wait to reveal our kitchen, family room, and master bedroom renovations :)

"Our 3rd time vacationing in Duck, 2nd with Twiddy. This house was in a good spot, and has a lot of potential. The walk to the beach is easy, and the amenities at Schooner Ridge were nice, even though we did not use any (except beach access). There were a lot of small things that need to be fixed (screen door, small cracks in walls, drywall damage, broken vinyl blind), the furniture was well used, but clean, the refrigerator&freezer are hanging on, but I wouldn't recommend trying to keep any icecream in the freezer. I did see that there were some 2022 Kitchen renovation plans in the guest book, so those issues I'm sure will be taken care of. Basically nothing that would stop you from having a great time in Outer Banks. The pool & hot tub area was well kept and having 2 outdoor showers was perfect for after the beach, and the storage area with the beach chairs to use was very nice. Everyone had a great time enjoying the great weather and location"

Many thanks for this feedback. So helpful. We just purchased the property and are working through your list and others. Can’t wait to reveal the new kitchen, family room and master bedroom. :)
