I've stayed in many houses in the Outer Banks over the years and this is one of the best! I always do a lot of cooking while at the beach and many of the homes have few pots and pans and I usually have a hard time finding enough decent cookware to complete a meal. But not with the Swink! It had everything I needed, plus more. The bedrooms are a good size and situated in such a way that everyone had privacy. It is also very close to the beach and you have a great view of the water from the uppermost deck. The furniture is comfortable and there are plenty of toys and things for the kids to use at the beach. We had a wonderful time!

We loved the home. The gas fireplace and game system were amazing "save the day" amenities, as the weather was much colder than we had hoped. Great beach toys for kids. About a 1 minute walk to the beach, near enough to the main drag on the island that it wasn't a long haul for dinner/shopping, but far enough into the residential section to feel private. We had some problems with internet service, and Southern Shores sent someone out immediately to fix it. A little short on cabinet space, so we ended up with food taking up most of the counters in the kitchen. Thanks Swinks!

Dear Southern Shores Realty
The Swink home fit our family perfectly. The right number of rooms, the right beds, etc. The kitchen offered all the gadgets we needed and then some. There were actually several working flashlights (and extra batteries)for night walks on the beach!
The hot tub was a nice addtion to this home, as was the new living room furniture and kitchen floor. I guess our group could have used one more bathroom (for total indulgence), but we shared the available three full baths quite well.
The best thing about this house is its great beach access for not being "Oceanfront"...as long as everyone is able to carry their towel, bag, chair, umnbrella, etc. over the small dune that separates it from the beach. Not for the infirm, but easy for everyone else.
The house is also stocked with all kinds of beach paraphenalia; umbrellas, chairs...even boogey boards!
The new keyless entry system worked well for us, no problems. We received prompt service from housekeeping (for missing towel sets) and maintenance (no voice track while viewing DVD); and all our issues were resolved easily.
We hope to enjoy "Swink" again in the future.

We had a great time at the Swink house. It was perfect for all of our needs. The grand children enjoyed the bunk beds and we loved the master suite. Wow! The beach toys were enjoyed and even the short walk to the beach (very short) we made in to an adventure. We also plyed Twister and some board games which were in the house. We all had a great time at Grandma's Get Away! Thank you for sharing your home, Mr. and Mrs. Swink.

We spent a week at the Swink Cottage. It was our first time in a vacation home instead of a hotel and we will definitely come back. You can see the ocean from the familyroom and back deck and can also be on the beach in less than a 5 minute walk! The house accommodated three generations of our family and it more than met everyone's needs. The recently redecorated familyroom is big, bright and airy and the kitchen is well equipped. Bring lots of towels and be ready to have lots of fun! Hoping to return in 2009. Enjoy!
