Beyond our expectations!

The Destiny was a perfect fit for our family and vacation. The owners have anticipated every need (and want) to accommodate families. From the well-equipped kitchen, to the stunning beachfront views, we enjoyed every minute of our stay and hated to leave. Jo even gave us a call to make sure everything met our expectations. We are grateful for the opportunity to stay at the Destiny.

This is (approximately) our 10th year at this cottage and it just gets better and better. These are the best owners by far and genuinely care about their guests. They reinvest money each year to do improvements and keep everything efficient and functional. We feel like this is our second home and are grateful for their dedication to this wonderful home. It's a place to enjoy comfort and peace. Thank you! Read more

Once again our family had a spectular week at "our home away from home - Destiny". The weather was perfect mid-70's to 80's, sunny, and free of any rain. Our group ranged in age from 4 to 83 all of us finding something (or nothing) to do. Kids enjoyed the ocean waves and shelling, not to mention moving alot of sand!! The adults soaked up some sun, read books, enjoyed beautiful sunrise's on the porch with a fresh cup of coffee.
We all keep coming back for this one special week of family, relaxation, and to enjoy much needed "down time". A trip to Jeanette's Pier, shopping, mini-golf, and a couple of meals out. A delightful and unexpected bonus this year - in addition to the early morning show by the dolphins the humpback whales made an appearance. Awesome!
Thank you Jo & Lin for sharing your "oceanfront gem" with the rest of us, and for your friendship. Great to see you both this time around :).
In about 50 weeks we get to do it all over again and we can't wait...
Exceptional Vacation Home!

All the amenities that you would ever want, and right on the beach!!! Extremely well kept and maintained. Spacious and tastefully decorated. Destiny is a true paradise and a great escape. Jo and Lin (owners) are very caring people, and extremely pleasant folks. I would recommend this rental for small or larger groups. You will not be disappointed!!!

This was the most relaxing vacation of our lives. Perfect in every way. The beach house was way more than we ever expected. The upkeep on the cottage was a 5 rating. Very large and spacious. Clean beyond belief. More room than two families could enjoy. Very close to the Ocean. Great sand dunes. Excellent porch, swing and seating areas.
The owners of destiny know how to make your home away from home the most pleasant experience in a life time. I recommend this cottage as one of the best rentals at Nags Head.

really nice vacation
Left on 08/24/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | Ken
We were right on the ocean, so no carrying of stuff back and forth to the beach; we walked out and came back as we chose. The house had space for us to spread out and lounge and relax without getting in the way of each other, and it had all the appliances, pots and pans, etc. that we needed. The wash machine and drier were really used and were essential for the enjoyment of our stay. The dining table was large enough for us all to sit together and really share meals. The outdoor shower and hose made sure we did not tramp sand into the house. The porch and the porch swing were oriented wonderfully to watch sunrises or the activity at the beach, kind of the icing on the cake.
Really Great House!

We really loved staying in this house. The beach was just a couple steps away. Amazing views! I would definitely rent it again. The owner even called to make sure everything was ok!
A Great Vacation Home
Left on 09/02/2010 for a stay in August 2010 | Susan Clamp
The house was in a great location-very ocean front;location and layout of house was what we liked the best. The dirty bathtubs were what we liked least, we could not bathe our two young children in the tubs, they had to stand, the tubs were too dirty; the drains were also clogged with hair and the water pressure of the showers were poor. There were also spills on the end tables and a film on the dining room table. The door lock broke and service from the office was quick and easy. The rest of the house was great! Read more
Response from Resort Realty Outer Banks - 09/09/2010
I apologize for the problems that you encountered with dirty, clogged bath tubs; this should have never happened to your family. Please trust that we would have been more than happy to send someone from our housekeeping department to clean and unclog the bath tubs immediately if this had been reported to us. Resort Realty wants nothing more but for each one of our guests to enjoy their vacation to the fullest. Our guests should know that they can always contact our housekeeping or maintenance departments if there are ever any problems - that is why we are here. My apologies again and I hope that you will come back and enjoy the beautiful Outer Banks with Resort Realty.

The Destiny was very nice and clean and well appointed. Kitchen had plenty of pots & pans, etc. The few items that were broken - 2 Tv's and grill - were immediately replaced and that was appreciated. The fact that the house was basically on one floor was a new feature for us, but was very convenient with little kids in tow and grandparents. We loved being so close to the beach, too. Let the homeowners know that while we were very careful not to walk on the dune in front of the house, the people walking the beach and the lifeguards with their 4-wheelers crossed over it continually. This was partly due to the fact that we erected a small tent on the lower part to keep the kids out of the sun, but there was room to walk in front of that tent. Perhaps a larger sign notifying people to stay off the dune is warranted-something that could be seen from either direction would be more visible than the one sign that is currently attached to the house. Thank you for providing us with a nice vacation.

property right on the beach..so convienent!!

This property is literally on the beach. You can sit on the deck anytime of day and watch the waves crashing,swinging in the hammock. There is enough room for 2 families of five(f you are close;) with each part of the house having a king bed and a single with bunks in the other br with a full bath. each of these sections is separated by the kitchen area which would seat about 12. Plenty of places to dine/shop a few miles away and a nice sidewalk to run/walk that goes for miles! My boys and I enjoyed this week thoroughly!! One thing for those not familiar with jellyfish, there were lots some days, not an issue. The sting is mild and lasts 10 minutes . Don't let that deter you. That didn't stop us from swimming all day . Have fun!

House is great as to location and access to beach. Aggravation with toilet overflowing. Rr responded, not too enthusiastic. Problem continued thorughout our stay. Minor stuff, but distracted from enjoyment of home. Love Nags Head area. Am sure you get lots of advice, and its your money not mine, but if you are tracking advice, a crows nest on that house would be incredible! Read more

Thank you for booking your vacation with Resort Realty and we hope to see you again next year!
Had a great time with our family

The house itself was clean and the kitchen was well equipped which was great (we were able to eat most of our meals at the house which saved us a lot of money). The location was wonderful - walking down the steps to the beach was so nice. I really enjoyed the hammock swing. The house itself could use some updating on the inside. Both king beds are in desperate need of new mattresses (very hard) and the bed pillows need to be replaced with new ones (some had some staining on them). The television in the king room located off of the living room did not work). Linens not being included was inconvenient. We chose to bring our own because the linen package was too expensive which meant that we needed to bring a whole suitcase just for our linens and that took up more room in our vehicle. We realize that condemned houses are something that cannot be controlled by the rental company or the home owners, but they are quite an eyesore.

We were looking for a smallish rental property, of which there seem to be very few. Destiny was just perfect - clean, comfortable, nice contact from owner who immediately facilitated repair of cable/internet which had gone out.
Very nice accomodations!

We found Destiny to be a well-kept and stocked home. We loved the cathedral
ceilings which added so much light. Swing on the deck was fantastic! We only
hope the sea stays at bay for it was mighty close. The house was very clean
when we moved in so I didn't have to redo the kitchen or bathrooms or ask for
a re-clean as I have had to do in other places. We had the worst weather we've
had in 20 years at the Outer Banks, but we had a wonderful time with family
and then friends at this house. It served us well. Very comfortable.

We had a great time at the Destiny home. There was ample space for all six of us. The home was clean, right on the beach (which was our preference) and all amenities met all of our expectations. We enjoyed the large family room and extensive DVD collection and board games the best! All accommendations were a great match for our family and we hope to return to this rental home again next year! Thank you again!

Gr8 location right on the beach . Very well maintained house . Designed nicely for 2 families with kids. All the little things taken care of , beach toys, beach chairs, hot water outdoor shower ( my favorite ). Sunrise from the deck absolutely amazing.
