"This home provided a wonderful play space to keep the children busy so the adults could truly relax and unwind. While this home doesn't have a 'beachy' feel, it is a beautiful home that really covers all the little details."
"The game room. Everyone had so much fun in that room. Best game room we’ve ever had in a beach house."
"The home was wonderful. Our family enjoyed each and every space of it. Theater and game rooms were used a lot by the grandkids as well as adults. Great lasting memories were made."
"The Norris Cottage is a fantastic vacation home. The house was impeccably clean. The owners were there to greet us when we arrived and did a thorough walk through which we appreciated very much. We have rented at the OBX for many summers and this is the first time we are re-renting the same house again next year."
"Location, playground, main master bedroom, baby pool, game room, porches, luxurious house."
"RENTED THE NORRIS COTTAGE FOR OUR 50 WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. THIS PROPERTY EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS AND WAS TRULY AMAZING . OUR LARGE FAMILY OF 24 HAD SO MANY WONDERFUL DAYS ON THE BEACH AND IN THE POOL. . THE GRANDCHILDREN (AGES 12-22) MADE GREAT USE OF THE GAME ROOM AND THEATER. WE NEVER RAN OUT OF THINGS TO DO. THIS HOUSE WAS EXCEPTIONALY CLEAN, AND WE NEVER SEEN A KITCHEN SO WELL STOCKED. .LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PROPERTY. FELT TRULY BLESSED TO BE THERE. IT WAS PERFECT."
"So much outdoor dining and adult relaxing space and the game room is 100% the best one of all the houses we’ve ever seen!!! More parking and stronger ice makers would knock this house out of the park! Looking forward to next year (and all air conditioners working at full capacity!)"
"The Norris Cottage was a beautiful home! We loved the outdoor area with the covered porches and outdoor kitchen, (we had rain two days, but were still able to enjoy the outdoors). The woodwork and attention to detail in this home is outstanding. The game room had so many options, and the theater was amazing that our rainy days were still fun in OBx. The beds were super comfortable, too. I highly recommend this home to large groups!"
"outstanding home, pool, game room and theater. Kitchen was fully equipped....better than any home we have stayed in before. All 21 of us had a great time. recommend to anyone."
"Awesome house with all the luxuries of being at a resort."
"Norris Cottage has everything! The pool is gigantic. The home Theatre is like sitting in the real thing; so very authentic. The game room is like going to an actual arcade. The bedrooms and bathrooms are indescribable, they are so beautiful. My family lived like the “Rich and Famous” for a week. We even had a family volleyball tournament. The location can’t be beat. We walked to the grocery store (Publix) and a restaurant. Restaurants and shopping minutes away."
