This was truely a great place to have a family reunion. We really enjoyed every minute of our stay. We were right on the beach with the most spectacular view. If privacy is something you are looking for while still being close to everything this is the perfect home to stay in. Our whole family was very happy.
King Rental Experience
Left on 09/15/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | TomB
Our dealings with Resort Realty went well. All the rental companies have their own idiosyncracies but this one was better than most. The house was exactly as described--great for most large groups. It was well stocked and the location was just ideal--on the beach. There were flies in the lower bedrooms, but we are not sure if we did something wrong or that is just the way it is. The screen doors need to be replaced. some of the windows need to be replaced for there is condensation between the panes. The large number of windows is a Plus--they are great. There is no Wi-fi which caused problems for our group.
These are the negatives. The positives are: it is Great--especially for extended families. We will return and do love the house. Keep making those improvements!
One fantastic week spent in South Nags Head, NC.

We started our week by being able to check-in a little early--what a treat. The house was just as described and included a well-stocked kitchen which is always a bonus. The location was the best that we have encountered since we started visiting the Outer Banks for we enjoy being out of the mainstream. The bedroom configuration suited our family perfectly.
We will return next year!
Spectacular Ocean Views
Left on 08/07/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | LoveTheBeach
Resort Realty was very professional.The express check out from the house was quick and easy. The house was big enough so everyone could retire to their own space when needed. We were right on the beach and the location of the house was great as well. The outside shower was great. The best thing about the house is the wonderful full view of the beach, so close we could watch family members from the living room/kitchen. Although I can't really say anything negative about the our stay, the room off of the garage was often very warm and stuffy at times.

What a wonderful home! Location is great being so close to the beach. The amenities were awesome as well. This is a very spacious home and really liked the layout.

Wonderful house to vacation in. The location is superb and the beach was clean and nice. The house is functional and gives every one room, as well as providing enough space for us all to gather together.

Amazing oceanfront views - everywhere!
Left on 06/28/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Joanna B
This is a basic beach cottage with amazing ocean views from almost everywhere. There is an awesome wrap around deck as well as huge windows that look out onto the beach which is sooo close. A really nice wide beach.
Couple of downsides - needs more kitchen dishtowels and some basic spices. Bed in the non master queen room was very uncomfortable. It would be nice if there was a walkway to the beach - we had to go over the dunes to get there - I think that was a recent happening though.
Enjoyment for the last 4 years

Left on 10/29/2010 for a stay in September 2010 | OBX visitor for 30 years
Excellent ocean views! The house was clean and had a nice floor plan. We wished that the kitchen was better equipped, to include liquid measuring cups and microwave cookware, servingware, etc.. We were not pleased that owner maintenance was conducted during our stay. The beds in both master bedrooms were not very comfortable. There are a number of maintenance items that need attention: the inside doors from the garage are difficult to operate; the southside master bedroom window over the dresser leaks heavily when it rains, as does the garage at the oceanside door . Would probably stay there again except for the uncomfortable beds.
The perfect beach house.

The home was very well maintained , spacious and comfortable. The location was awesome. It was wonderful being so close to the beach, especially with having children. The linen service was a plus.

The beach was beautiful!
Left on 06/30/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | GS
There were dirty dishes left in the dishwasher. There were dirty sheets left on the beds from the previous tenets. The front screen door was broke. The beds up stair's were hard and made alot of noise. No one could stay in the down stair's room because of the smell of mold was to strong. Resort Reality told me that there was a highchair and a Crib in the house. We searched everywhere to find them. There was no highchair and the crib was in the boiler room in pieces. We sent the first day cleaning up after the people who rented it before us. Otherwise that, after we cleaned everything up it was better. We paid for early check-in which when we arrived to check in there was a boat load of people checking in that did not pay for early checkin.
The king is really a Prince

We really enjoyed our week on the beach. The house has great access to the beach. We found that it was a central location for every tourist destination we viewed. The kitchen was well-stocked with kitchen utensils. The kids had a blast trying to best each other with the Monopoly game.
The problems we had were maintenance. We had several doors that wouldn't shut...the garage door needs work. The dishwasher worked when it wanted to (very frustrating with 6 people). I guess we could get picky and mention that some of the windows were dry rotted..and the roof looks like it needed to be replaced. The latter didn't bother us as much, but I think if I owned a house like this I'd take better care of it.
For a weeks stay tho, the kids learned how to boogie board and harass sand crabs. What more could you ask for? Oh, and what can you do with 2 gallon ziploc bags full of shells? Thanks for sharing your house, we enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets.

Perfect Home-Bad weather
Left on 10/21/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | Oak Park, Joe
This was a friends and family get together and we
were stuck in the home most of the time because the
weather was gray and rainy. It turn out not to be
a problem. The open floor plan worked just fine.
The pictures online do not do the home justice. We
ate in every night and the kitchen was adequate,
however I did bring a few items to cook with
(knives and a grill pan) because I had no idea what
I would find at the house. this is just what we
were looking for...We wanted an older home with
character, on the ocean, that would accommodate
everyone. If anyone is looking for hotel type
amenities, this is not the place for you. There is
not a TV in every room, there is no jacuzzi tub,
what there is is a great home on the beach with a
nice deck and great space for you and your party.
I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a
good beach experience.

GREAT OCEAN VIEWS!
Left on 09/24/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | The Fisher Family
We had a great first week in Nags. The weather turned in the 2nd week.
We really enjoyed the cottage and the proximity to the beach. The deck layout was great with the outdoor eating area.
The inside of the cottage was nice and neat. The layout of the bedrooms was good. There were lots of kitchen ware for all and the appliances all worked well.
The tv and living area was nice and large with lots of room for everyone.
Areas of suggestion: replace the center window unit or dining window unit and put in a sliding door, much easier for beach access.
Bedroom in basement that you access by walking through garage needs to have it's own air unit, musty smelling down there. And or close off the garage door and make the garage another rec room so the doors can be open to the far bedroom in basement. Change beds to bunks and put in another queen or double.
Some of the mattresses need replacing.
All and all a great location, lots of wild life and beautiful views.
We've rebooked for next year already.

The perfect house!
Left on 08/26/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | dan7713
The pictures did not give this house its justice. The kitchen was bigger than we thought; the living room and dining area were great; the furniture was comfortable; the rooms were big; and the bathrooms were sufficient as well. I love the fact that there was no carpet in the living and dining area. It made it much easier to clean.
The best part of the entire house is the view! You can see the waves crashing on the beach while you eat at the dining room table! The deck was accompanied with benches and chairs that were in good working condition; perfect for watching the sun rise as you drink you morning coffee or for your evening cocktail as the sun goes down! There is walk way from the house to the beach which is about 15 feet providing you the best possible access to get to the ocean!
This house gave our family the room we needed. Our age range this year was 5 months old to 71 years of age and it provided the accommodations we ALL needed. My family has been going to Nags Head for the past 40+ years and the King was one of the best places we have stayed in so far.
Family vacation 2009
Left on 08/12/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | Beachlovers
The location is outstanding. Resort Realty was very easy to deal with. Their service was great.
The bottom bedrooms of the house need to be cleaned and updated. The bedroom with the four single beds has green mold around the air vents and smells like mold. The bathroom was clean and updated. The other bedroom also had mold from the vents in the bathroom and needs to be updated.The upstairs master bedroom was clean . The new bathroom is beautiful . The other bathroom needs updating. It did not even have a toilet paper holder. The other bedroom was very clean, bright but the dresser was falling apart.The kitchen is small,new dishwasher was a plus.Floor needs to be replaced.The washer and dryer were very good. There is a lot of old broken wooden and beach chairs with mold on them in the garage. Outside decks are in good condition. The doors and windows all work and are in good condition. The outside furniture is in good condition.This house needs a good cleaning to remove the mold from downstairs.

My family has been comming to the Outer Banks for forty years. I can't figure out why we never bought, but this property is one of the many wonderful places to stay. Definately Home away from home. The home was very comfortable and accomidating. The location is absolutely lovely. Thanks you for letting us visit!! We will be back this year too.

Hands down the best value ocean front you can get. If you are there for the beach and relaxing this is it! Everything was clean and kept well. All amenities were fantastic. We loved it all the best and disliked the greenheads! LOL...Coming back in 2010! 2011! 2012!
The BEST visit ever!
Left on 07/18/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | The Cohick's
Our family has traveled to the Outer Banks from Pennsylvania for many years. We have stayed in Hotels, Condos and rented houses. Although many of those accommodations were lovely, the King was the BEST ever! It was very well equiped with kitchen supplies, play things and I loved the fact that we did not have to take our own lines (or pay extra for them). The view was remarkable! No problem with who got which bedroom because of the view! We ALL had the same fabulous view. And, because we do travel from the mountains of Pennsylvania, Ocean Front is the ONLY way to go!!! We come for the beach and we had beach 24/7. Having a grill on site was a real bonus! In the past we have had to rent a grill and decided we were not going to pay the extra for the few times we actually used it. It was great not having that added expense. We would absolutely want to stay at the King for future visits! Finally, Resort Realty staff was wonderful to deal with from reservations to check-in and the new check-out method was such a time saver! Thank You!

Review of King

We have used the King three times over the years for family reunions. The layout of the house and the furnishings are just great. We really enjoy the location. My only concern is the width of the beach at South Nags Head.

no bottom steps to beach
Left on 07/17/2009 for a stay in October 2007 | m b crawford
I have no problem with the rental home King. I have stayed there twice. This past stay was marred by the absence of the bottom steps to the beach. After numerous calls to the rental agency we had no luck having the steps replaced. We were told the owners were handling it. We ended up using a 6 foot step ladder to access the beach for the whole week. I understand there had been a storm but we were the only beach home that did not get their steps replaced that week.
A Great Week

The house was wonderful - clean and very nicely furnished. We liked the location as it offered a lot of privacy. Plenty of room and an uncrowded beach.
