"Loved the layout and having linens provided."
"The location was excellent! Near the Pier! All shopping and dining located within a short drive. Ample bathrooms."
"Great layout and nice view of ocean. The pier being so close is nice for a quick bite to eat, but can be noisy when trying to enjoy a quiet night or the beach."
"Fantastic beach front location within a stones throw to our favorite place on the OBX - Fish Heads!!!"
"Great location, nicely appointed home. Plenty of space for everyone."
"We love all the space!! Weather wasn’t great but we used the hot tub a lot, pool table and lots of movies!"
"The view was wonderful! We enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the dog yard is a huge plus! Definitely needs new beds but otherwise, it was perfect!"
"Peanut’s Palace is a beautiful well kept home with the perfect location. It is within walking distance to “FishHeads” and the Outer Banks Pier.If you are a fisherman, the surf fishing is hopping and if fishing the sound is more your style, you are only 5-10 minutes from the little bridge."
"Perfect space and location for the whole family. The fenced in dog park was a highlight for our dogs."
"We loved Peanuts palace.location was amazing. Perfect for our big family and dogs. We will be back !"
"Location was great...... house was as expected. Weve stayed with Twiddy multiple times in various locations and they all are unique in their own way. Oceanfront is by far the favorite...."
"Loved our holidays at Peanut’s Palace. The property is well maintained, including a great hot tub and. Location and views are amazing. We have a big dog and little dog who love the beach, but the private dog park was a smart addition. Hope to come back soon."
"Comfortable home with a well-equipped kitchen for making Thanksgiving dinner! Great location! We’ll be back!"
"This house was just right for us. We were celebrating our 50 anniversary. The hot tub was great. The view of the ocean from the deck was perfect."
"Close to pier, great flooring, comfortable beds, hot tub, pet friendly, great views, very comfortable , close to main drag"
"Peanut's Palace was great when we stayed there last year, but the improvements made it our absolute favorite and we'll definitely be staying there again! The dog park is a huge draw, the additional guest quarters, the lovely new deck furniture, and of course the beachfront location all make this property number one for us!"
"It was as always great fun! Location Location! House was nice this was our third stay there, right on the beach with beautiful sunrises! Love Sept in the outer Banks! Great hospitality!"
"Peanuts palace was a great place to stay, the bedrooms were roomy and big master bathrooms, loved the fenced dog area, the game room was nice, the upstairs deck had beautiful views, the big hot tub was nice in the evenings, short walk out back to the beach so convenient! We loved it so much we booked already for next Summer!"
"Peanuts Palace was the perfect vacation home for us! Ocean front, plenty of bathrooms and room for all to spread out! Loved being close to the OBX fishing pier and the new upgrades are great!! Hope to be back next year!"
"There's nothing we didn't love about the home! It was perfect in every way! Right on the beach, close to everything we wanted to do but not crazy congested. We love that it's so dog friendly too. Both our human kids AND K9 kids had an amazing time. There's even a fenced in dog yard for potty breaks. This was definitely one of our best vacations ever if not the best and we've traveled quite a bit. We loved it so much we've already reserved the home for next year only for two weeks instead of just one! Thank you so much for the countless awesome memories!"
"This house is amazing. Loved that it is right on the beach and close to the fishing pier. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes and pots and pans, they even had plastic ware for leftovers. Plenty of room for our family. Hot tub was amazing. So much room in the house for everyone to be comfortable. Wonderful that it is pet friendly. We have two small dogs and they loved all the room and the new sod area in the front is beautiful. We can’t wait to come back next year."
"Had a wonderful vacation. The house was beautiful."
"Home is wonderful as always. We absolutely love the changes! (Larger hot tub in a better location, more seating in the common room upstairs, new screens, gate on the top deck, new deck furniture) Cleaners did a wonderful job."
"We had such a great time! The location was perfect and the home had everything we wanted and more."
"Very roomy; lots of bathrooms; on beach; dog friendly; pool table"
"The location of this home was amazing. Loved walking right out the main floor back door onto the beach. We did not need the extra space offered in the garage apt, but this was a fabulous option for larger groups."
"Perfect location and beautiful view. . The owner had really thought it out for dogs by doing things like putting a gate at the top of the deck stairs."
"The main house was nice and clean. WiFi was an issue but was resolved before we left. It was great to have a separate bathroom for each room. The guest house was not as nice but the overall experience was great! Also, it was really great to be so close to the pier, stores and restaurants."
"Thank you for affording our family a great vacation on the Outer Banks. Beach Retreat II was a great location! We have stayed several times at the cottage 3 houses to the south of this one in the past, but needed the extra room. We did have a couple of air conditioners in the second cottage that were not worked by, but Twiddy resolved this issue quickly and in a timely manner. The cottage could have used more soup bowls, but we had brought styrofoam bowls to accommodate us. We loved the pool table; it was nice to play in the evenings. But, most of the time, we were enjoying the beach!! Overall, great time!! First time with Twiddy; we’ve been coming to the OBX for over 40 years, and we were not disappointed! Thank you!! We will use Twiddy again in the future!"
"Good location for our family and our plans for the week. Layout served us well."
"Overall we were pleased with this home. The living room could use more seating. Some repairs need to be made (screen doors are either broken or won’t close). It was relatively clean for a rental home. Location was perfect. Well stocked with blankets and pillows. Since it’s dog friendly, would be nice if they had built in gates on the decks. Luckily we brought our own."
"House was perfect for us for our New Years getaway. The guest house gives you privacy if you’re traveling with more then one family. The kitchen could be stocked a little better, especially for the amount of people that the house could accommodate and the living room could use more seating as 1 small couch was not enough for our family."
"We really enjoyed our stay and loved the spacious house. The view and convenient to the beach was wonderful. We had fun shooting pool,plus having our sweet little Finnegan (dog) made it more enjoyable. We would highly recommended staying and probably will in the future 😎😀"
"This is the 3rd year in a row staying at Beach Retreat II. It has proven to be the perfect setup for our family. We've never had a complaint from anybody in our group. We have a variety of ages, and it seems to meet the needs of all of them. If I had to make a recommendation, it would be to include a dresser in each of the 2 bedrooms upstairs. It's no fun pulling your clothes out of a suit case all week. I would stay there again... we haven't had a bad trip yet. It would just make it better with the extra dressers."
"Our first impressions of the house were not very good. The description said there would be a duo bunk, but there was only a futon. We had counted on the extra sleep space, so had to call Twiddy for a cot. They were very nice about it, but ended up bringing just a twin blow up mattress. The house was a lot smaller than we anticipated and the kitchen was not well stocked- there were not any serving dishes, measuring spoons, or plastic glasses, among other things. The walkway to the beach was not well maintained as far as overgrowth. With that being said, we were right on the beach, which was our main priority, and, despite the house's shortcomings, we had a great vacation."
