Loved the house, great location for shopping, restaurants etc.

The house is better in person than it shows online. We have been coming to Northern OBX for 18 years and rented every price level of house and it was a pleasant surprise to see that the bedrooms, baths, kitchen, everything about this house is a notch or two above what one would expect at the price range. It was a nice house and a good value. The location is fantastic. It's a 3 minute walk to the heart of Duck which is great.
The pool and deck are especially nice because they are in the sun all day since they are located on the South side of the house. There was nice new furniture around the pool. There were two adult sized bikes and lots of beach chairs and other beach stuff. Nice bonus - it had an air compressor for blowing up rafts etc.
It's not the owner's fault but check-in was really bad. The house was not ready for us at 4PM. When we called Southern Shores they were argumentative and defensive. They even denied that 4 was the check-in time despite what it said in the lease and pre-travel e-mails they sent us. They wouldn't give us a time when it would be ready. They said the cleaner would need to finish and after that an inspector would need approve the house before we could check-in. We were told we would get a call when it was ready. We hung out outside for two hours. The cleaner finally left at 6. No inspector ever showed up. Southern Shores never called. We went in own our own at 6:30. Southern Shores never acknowledged that anything was wrong or did anything to make it right.
Great view from the top..........sunrise to sunset..

House was a great surprise. We were a last minute rental, booking the Thurday before a Sunday stay. Southern Shores web based options for easy review and selection resulted in our choice. The inside was clean, functional, and we moved into a fully equipped house from kitchen to closets. Lot's of pictures and nick nacks made it feel like a home for the week. Up to date technology entertainment video and sound system was great. Location was perfect, 5 minute walk to beach, 5 minute walk to Duck Donuts. We rode our bikes from Duck to Corrola, a great 30 mile round trip to start the day and burn off the Duck donuts! After a day on the beach, returning for a cool down in the pool and then the hot tub in the evening was very relaxing. We had dinners on the top level screened in porch and enjoyed the night breezes. Finally, the house is the highest in the area and the top deck provides for a great view of the sunrise and sunset.
Dune Crest is wonderful, Southern Shores has forgotten customer

This was our 6th year renting this home. It is
situated between the beach and shopping - a
great location for families offering all kinds of
options. The house is well stocked and affords
vacationers all the necessary amenities. We love
the great private pool, hot tub, and wrap around
decks - great for morning coffee or evening
Over the years, Southern Shores realty has
steadily forgotten the fine art of customer service.
Rude staff, inflexible rules, and being locked out
of the home due to a keyless entry snafu, makes
vacationers feel taken for granted and
unappreciated. The only thing that keeps us
coming back is the memories we have at Dunes
Crest. If not for our love of the home, I would
never rent from Southern Shores again.

We have been going to the Outer Banks for over twenty years now, and I believe this was our best time ever. The home was wonderful and only a short walk to the beach. Everything was provided -- beach chairs that were comfortable and light, towels, linens, and any kitchen appliance you would want. The internet was a snap to access. Finally, we were so centrally located that it allowed easy access to shops -- simply to browse if so inclined -- and to a restaurant named the Blue Point which had some of the best food I have had on the Outer Banks. So, quite simply, it was a great vacation. Thank you.
My husband, college-age children and their friends, and I just spent our fourth annual beach vacation at Dune Crest. The house is lovely, spacious, and wonderfully-equipped with everything a family could possibly need or want while spending a time at the beach.
We love the fact that towels and linens are provided. And the location is perfect for easy walks to the beach, shops, restaurants, and produce stands. On the top deck, the views of the ocean are lovely, and our kids have loved using the pool and hot tub.
We highly recommend Dune Crest to anyone, any family, and/or any group of friends that want to spend time at the beach.

Our family loved this house! It was well furnished with linens included. The house was very clean and well stocked. The pool and hot tub were just great. The walk to the beach was no bad at all and it is located just about a block from stores and restaurants. It also sits high on the dune so you have great views. Excellent location overall. We would definitley recommend this house!

We spent a wonderful week at Dune Crest and had a wonderful time. This is the first time we stayed in this vacation rental home and it was great.The house was a nice walk to the beach and it made it easy to bring our gear and beach stuff. They have a convient buggy to carry everything you need for the beach. Everything was clean and orderly when we arrived, and we were pleased to
learn that the pictures online matched the home. It's actually nicer than the pictures! We'd definitely recommend this house - especially if you're bringing kids and want to spend a lot of your vacation at the beach. The Pool is an added feature that rounds out the perfect vacation spot. We'll be
back next year.
