We took the opportunity to go to the Outer Banks in the early part of May and stayed at Derrycon for a week. We loved the location as it was really close to Jeannette's pier, the outlet mall, great restaurants and grocery stores. The house was clean and very comfortable with plenty of natural sunlight. Really enjoyed being ocean front where we could sit on the front porch, drinking our morning coffee and seeing the sun rise and the ability to walk out the door and be right on the beach enjoying the ocean and the cool breeze. Kitchen was fully stocked with all of the necessities when cooking for the family. Furniture was comfortable and there were TVs in every room. Great value for the money and we will definitely rent the Derrycon again next year.
Vacation Stay w/ family & children of all ages

The house was nice and worked well with our family situation. The master bedrooms would have been nicer if they faced the ocean. The downstairs master doesn't have hot water(luke warm at best)and couldn't be fixed...said that was an internal thing the home owner put on the shower. We stay in nags head every year and I think you can find a nicer house for what this house cost. Won't be staying here again. Read more
Thank you for your review of Derrycon! We are glad you had a great week with your family and that this house workied very well for your needs.
The shower issue you outline is indeed an issue in many of our houses when there are multiple showers running at the same time. The water heater at this house (and others) is not designed to fuel multiple hot showers at the same time.
We hope you give Derrycon another visit in the near future, and again are glad that you and your family had a relaxing stay.
All the best from the beach!

We had a great time but wish the amenities had been as described

We had a wonderful week, and the house was great. There were two issues that we struggled with: First, the lighting in front above the entry steps(motion sensor)worked sporadically or not at all and was never addressed. It's a potential danger for anyone coming to the house after dark. It needs to be fixed. Second, the house advertised six working television sets with cable, and because we were taking children with varying ages I specifically asked about them and cable access. We found only four working. I immediatly asked for a replacement for at least one television set in the children's rooms. Someone went to verify the problem on Sunday morning. We did not get it fixed until Thursday morning, with only two full days left to go. That was very frustrating. I had to personally go to the management office after emailing and calling repeatedly.

Thanks for your review of Derrycon. We are glad that you and your family had such a great week at this very popular property (great location on this home!), and we again apologize for the difficulties with getting the cable television company to the property to fix the wiring issue in that one bedroom.
We also appreciate you telling us about the exterior flood light at this time so we can get that corrected for future guests.
We look foward to serving you again soon and thanks for your comments!
All the best from the beach!
