The only thing we found wrong was there where some areas of sand spurs. Everything else was great.

location,location,location! this definitely applies to this house!
beautiful views of the beach and ocean from both decks and living area.better than oceanfront with half the price. beautiful beach..not crowded at all. very short walk to the beach. quiet street. no traffic except for the residents who live there. the house is beautifully decorated and comfortable. a little smaller inside than i thought. i guess they're still renovating so it could use a few tweeks here and there. no extras supplied (a lot of houses have a lot of little extras like coffee filters, salt, pepper, dish detergent etc. so go prepared) but otherwise well stocked kitchen utility-wise. we didn't receive the linens and towels that came with the house. luckily we came with our own 'just in case'. the realty took care of it promptly the same day when we called. we only took the towels which were thick and nice quality. about an 8 minute drive to the main intersection where there is gas, restaurants, and jeannettes pier (a minor trade-off for the peace and quiet of south nags head). Calhoun's market (right past the pier) is amazing! they have everything in there! a little more expensive but at least you don't have to drive up the highway to food lion. they have delicious biscuits and sandwiches in the back, made fresh to order. great for breakfast and lunch(they open at 6am).very reasonable. you wouldn't know it if we hadn't spoken with one of the family who were super friendly and helpful.we have gone to the obx at least 10 years staying all over but this was one of the most relaxing. seems far from the touristy things to do but not really. close to most everything. great for the fisherman..close to all types of fishing you would want to do. wish you could check in earlier...$100 for early check in is ridiculous! that is not a 'nominal' fee. $25 would be more reasonable but it's a nice idea esp. if you have little ones. i know there's housekeeping issues but... overall, very nice.
Our stay was fabulously relaxing

This is my 3rd year staying at Keepsake and I don't want to look anywhere else. The home is well maintained and beautifully decorated. There are plenty of beds, two bathrooms, wifi and cable tv. The close proximity to the beach (4th house back) makes it an ideal location for the money spent. There is a fantastic view from the widow's walk at sunset.I like staying in South Nags Head as you are far enough away from the busier areas, but close to groceries and other shopping.
Our best stay ever.

Of all the years that we've been coming to the Outer banks, this is the first house that we felt was perfect for us.
Not only was it clean and well maintained, the location was great since most of our activities take place in the southern part of the Nags Head area.

Service was quick and easy. Received a call from Resort Realty that our rental was ready long before check-in time. This was convenient as we'd arrived early. The keyless entry worked extremely well and we didn"t have to juggle keys. Beach is easily accessible and visible from decks. Our only dissappointment was lack of updating to bathrooms and kitchen floor. Would like to see exhaust fans in bathrooms especially and kitchen floor is peeling and squeeks horribly. First one up in morning assures that everyone is up! Loved proximatey of restuarants as we ate out every night! We have decided to try another home next year as we prefer to have the ocean right at our front door! Thanks for a wonderful time.

This was our second time staying in Keepsake and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Great ocean view, provided linen rental very nice and convenient. Programmed door locks were nice because you don't have to worry about carrying keys with you at all times. The kitchen floor could use some work--very noisy upstairs and in bedrooms. Could maybe use some baking dishes. A 9x13 and an 8x8 dish would have been nice. Again, great house and would recommend to a small or large family.

This is the second time I've stayed at Keepsake. I love the house, I love the location. It feels like coming home. A few things need upgrading-the dishwasher stopped working. I called maintenance. They came promptly, the gentleman was very nice. He explained what went wrong and fixed it. However, the next day, the same problem happened again. I think it's time for a replacement. Also, the knife set is so dull, you can't cut a tomato. I recommend one with a sharpener. I would stay here again, however, and am looking forward to next year at Keepsake.

Good experience overall - nice ocean view for three houses back
Left on 11/02/2011 for a stay in October 2011 | Pam
Overall, the house was great and we enjoyed our stay. Abandoned houses on the beach certainly detracted from the beach view and the house was a bit farther out than we thought. Being an older home, the house could use some work - showers sprayed water on ceilings making them wet. Our downstairs bedroom had no window so made it somewhat hot without air conditioning. We couldn't open door as no screen in it. A 1/2 bath would have been helpful to accommodate the number of people in house.
Best vacation i ever had

It was during hurrican Irene and we could not get in to our place until two days after our intial check in but wow what a a great beach house. We had a wonderful time. Only problem I had was the steps but I managed. Great view and no irene damage...perfect vacation. My first visit to the Outer Banks. Looking forward to coming back next year.

We enjoyed our stay but would like to see some upgrades
Left on 09/21/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | Corey and Laurie
We just feel that the bathrooms are terribly outdated and could use some upgrades. there were no bathroom fans so the moisture collects on the ceiling. We also felt the kitchen floor needed to be replaced. Not only does it squeek terribly, but even after we mopped the vinyl ourselves, it still had a sticky feeling.

Nicely decorated comfortable house. Needs some repairs/TLC to squeaky kitchen floor. House is well laid out and comfortable. Short trek to beach without crossing any streets. Nice vacation overall, in spite of hurricane Irene.
A typically great week in the outer banks
Left on 08/17/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | Joe
We had a great week. The house is what a would call a classic South Nags Head beach house. Not fancy but very a great value
for the money spent. If you like the beach
you could not have a better more relaxing vacation.

While we do love this house, it is beginning to show it's age. It is lacking in routine maintenance such as sliding glass doors work poorly, 3rd story floor squeaks so bad that it wakes the whole house up, pealing paint, bathrooms need to be upgraded, furniture worn out, kitchen appliances are old, does not have WiFi.
The location to the beach is good. The kitchen is well supplied, the overall layout work well for our family. We are very comfortable in this house, however, it may not be as luxurious as some people may be looking for. We spend most of our time at the beach so the house isn't as important to us.

The view was awesome!!!
Left on 09/18/2010 for a stay in September 2010 | Renee Shroyer
We loved the house. It was neat and clean when we checked in. The price was great. We knew the area so we had some idea of where the house was by the beach, but we didn't expect the views that we had, they were awesome. The top deck is great for any time of day. and the private deck outside the master bedroom was so nice. We sat on the decks in the morning and watched the dolphins play in the water it was so much fun. The entire family loved the house, my daughter actually said that it was her dream house and that this was the house she wanted to stay in every year. We will stay again with this company and in this house.
Our relaxing vacation.

Our vacation started with a stop at Resort Realty where the employees were very polite and helpful. The home was beautiful and in a great location. It was great to have the laundry facilities located in the home and not have to go outside. There were several decks with fabulous view. I would have to say that the access to the beach and the decks were my favorite part of this home. We were just a little disappointed when it rained that the roof in the livingroom leaked otherwise we had a great stay. Thanks

The vacation home was away from the hustle and bustle of the town. House was clean and well kept. Great for two families. I will be back next year.

Great place for a Beachcation!
Left on 07/26/2009 for a stay in July 2007 | OBX Lover Jenn
We come from PA every summer to the OBX and have really never had a bad place to stay. Renting is easy through this realtor, done all online. Great and time saving. We loved how close to the beach this home was! My children were 13 and 9 at the time and we could watch them walk back to the house by themselves if they needed to. Quiet residential area, family oriented. Loved the decks, the view, and the swing! Very comfortable home. Not too fancy to make you feel on edge, you know? Real homey. This was my son's favorite house we stayed in so far. Can't say there was anything we didn't like, other than having to go home. I would definitely stay here again and I'm sure the rest of our family agrees.
