This house was perfect for a family vacation, we all had a blast. Amenities were fine - outside showers under the house were perfect for hosing off the kids so sand didn't get in the house. Loved the big deck chairs for a glass of wine at sunset.

Fantastic location on the ocean. House could be updated particularly kitchen. Appliances are old and poorly equipped. Upper floor is comfortable but could use more lighting. Sleeping quarters are functional. No beach chairs provided in usablew condition.

We have stayed in many homes and condos in the Outer Banks and this is by far our favorite! Perfect location, beautiful views of ocean and amazing sunsets over the sound side. Comfortable and welcoming interior. The only thing I would change is to add another full bath. We have already reserved for 3 more visits!
Only one disappointment out of many good things

This was our first week long rental of a beach house. It is a beautiful house with the extra loft that didn't even seem to be in the ad. But what was in the ad was a fireplace & I was told it had a fireplace, but not that it wasn't working. That was our big disappointment, especially as we had a couple of cool, rainy days/evenings. The tag on the fireplace even said it should be working after the 2nd week in Sept. & a gentleman in the Resort Realty office said it should have been checked before we rented. Anyway, the stay was lovely, family time always appreciated. The air conditioner stopped working, but someone care pretty quickly to fix it, & a maintenance man did come to check the fireplace, but couldn't. All in all good, but I did learn, if we do this again, specific questions to ask. Thank you. Read more

This place was great for our family every one had there own space but yet could all be together if they wanted to. Loved the short distance to the beach and loved the deck chairs.

Sunnyside Up continues to be the perfect oceanfront home in the lovely Sanderling area of Duck. The screened porch is shaded during the day while the front and side decks provide beautiful ocean views and breezes.The sunsets from the loft balcony are magnificent. Our grandchildren love the option of the Sanderling pool if the oceam is too rough. The furniture is comfortable as well as well maintained. We miss the hammock this year!

An absolutely perfect beach rental. Yards from the ocean, perfectly decorated, and many thoughtful amenities. Will return next year.

We have been vacationing in OBX since 1995. We've stayed in Duck and Corolla. Duck (9) times and Corolla (3). We like Duck the best. We've stayed in (8) different homes during the (12 ) visits and this is the best. This was our 2nd visit to Sunny Side Up. We love it. I only have (2) small suggestions. There wasn't any Tupperware storage containers for left overs and only a spatula and a laddle. The kitchen needs more cooking utensiles.

this was our 2nd year at sunnyside up. The area of Duck and the location of the beach house is perfect. The 1st year the home was clean and well maintained and very comfortable, but this year we found that not to be the case. If these issues were adressed we would gladly recommend this home to a friend.
Beautifully decorated but appliances need upgraded.

terrific renral house. This is the second year we have rented thisd particularlar home. As a former owner I thought it was well furnished and equipped and located right on the dune line. The weather cooperated so the week was great. Perfect for a small family group or two couples. We had our adult children present and loved it again.

great house, fantastic location. Love the open living room/dinning
room/kitchen. Had everything we needed and more.
No shower or bath mat was provided for any of the full bathrooms... Is that
normal? Last year (other house and realtor) did not have that problem...

The home was the perfect location if you are a beach lover, 2 seconds out the door and your in the waves! We liked the location the best and we had no least favorites. We hope to be back sometime in the future.
Just about Perfect!!

Our family has been coming to the OBX for almost 30 years,initally when our 2 sons were pre-schoolers and now our grandchildren are the same ages. Our first visit we stayed "between the highways" and have over the years graduated to oceanfront. We have stayed as far south as South Nags Head and as far north as Duck and Sanderling. "Sunnyside Up" is by far our most favorite house and home. It is so well appointed, very comfortable and has every convenience one could think of. Everything worked and worked well. The ice machine is a godsend. We've always had to make daily ice runs in the past. We loved the screen porch for pre-dinner drinks, the loft balcony for gorgeous sunsets, the front balcony for star-gazing and watching the surf. There were only 2 things I'd change/add. Many of the windows were without screens and the sliding door screens did not move easily. We had wondderful weather and did not need the air conditioning until the last day so we would have liked to open more windows. Also the house we had rented in Sanderling for the previous 5 years had a membership at the pool and tennis club. We enjoyed that in the past when the ocean was too rough so we missed that. Overall the house, neighborhood, location were all perfect - fantastic memories in the making. We have already put our money down to reserve for next year.

The house was absolutely beautiful, very well equipped and comfortable. There was not a thing we were missing or disappointed with. It was clean, the beds were comfortable and the house was nicely decorated. Being on the beach was a dream. We loved sitting on the wrap- around deck which faced the ocean. We would love to be able to go back every year! In fact, if we can swing it, we would like to go back the summer of 2010. We took our 4 children and 4 grandchildren. We have added 1 more grandchild and 1 more due in Sept. All of them agree it was the best vacation they ever had!
