11/18/13 "Amazing get away" Everything beautiful! Best September vacation we've had. 12 guests, plenty of room for everyone. You couldn't ask for more. We had everything we needed. I would recommend this home to vacation in to anyone. We hope to return someday soon, this would be my first choice.
10/13/13 "Quiet waterside getaway" We rarely left this spacious and relaxing home, as we hated to miss the water views and opportunities for fun: swimming in the pool, kayaking, fishing for blue crabs, sitting out on any of the many breezy decks with a cool drink. It was the perfect spot for catching up with extended family, with plenty of room to spread out or enjoy our time together. Tastefully and casually decorated and with a fully equipped kitchen, the home invites relaxation and family meals together. When we did venture out, we found plenty of restaurants and fun things to do just a short drive across the bridge to the Outer Banks.

9/11/13 "Very relaxing and peaceful" Staying with two other siblings and their families, the house was just right for lazy days at the pool, kayaking, fishing off the pier and crabbing. Can't beat the nearby golf course which made it easy for the boys to get in two rounds of golf during the week. A short trip over the bridge made it easy to dine out a couple of times. The kids loved the dragon flies and butterflies flying in the nearby reeds. Great amenities and the house was just the right size for 3-4 families. Would stay here again and just do one beach day rather than rent on the beach and have to deal with the neighbors and beach traffic. Here, there are no neighbors!!!
7/11/13 "peace and tranquility on the sound" This home is fantastic. Has everything you need! Very true to the pictures online. Very peaceful right on the sound. Not to far to drive to the beach, about 15 minutes. We would rent this one again!
8/25/12 "Relax and enjoy!" This was a very different vacation. The charming hunting lodge has been converted to a stunning vacation home with just the right mix of modern and rustic details. The house sits directly on the sound. The best part is there are no neighbors in sight. If you like to boat there are three kayaks and a paddle boat. Also, we rented a boat for the week and took it out on the sound. We would go out in the morning and set our crab traps and fish for dinner. Short drive to the beach and all the action, but just far enough out to be a little piece of heaven. I have rented several vacation homes and this was by far the cleanest and in the best condition. I can't forget the sound front pool and hot tub! Plenty of kitchen utensils and seating for great meals. Everyone had their own space, and did I mention the six plus decks to enjoy the outdoors. The roof top deck was our favorite. It you love the Outer Banks like our family does and enjoy your space and the water this is the vacation home for you.

Overall we really loved the house. I have a 5 and 6 year old and I really felt like they got to experience things that they wouldn't have at a different location. We went out on the paddle boat and kayaks. We caught crabs on strings with bait. We went fishing. They loved the pool even though it wasn't ready for us when we got there (but the pool staff came out right away and fixed the problem). My parents came with us and they found the atmosphere very relaxing. I was happy because everyone else was happy. The house could have been a little "cleaner" and the kitchen could have been a little more well stocked but all in all it was a great house and a great family vacation. Thank you!

This was an absolutely wonderful place for a large group to stay! It had so much room and there was always plenty to do - no one was ever bored!! Very easy to get to and the directions for everything were given to us in a timely manner and we had no difficulties with getting into the house, pool, etc.We loved the location because it was absolutely quiet and away from everything. At the end of the day after going to the beach it was great to come back to.
We have rented from Homeaway for 4 years straight now and I do have a little bit of constructive criticism that I hope will be helpful to your future renters. A large electric griddle would be nice for pancakes, etc. Keep a stock of various spices on hand.Make sure there is plenty of dishwashing liquid,toilet paper and bags for trash. This was the first time we had to supply these items. The trash containers(outside)
had not been emptied from the week before and were quite smelly. The toilets did not look like they had been cleaned for awhile as well as the bathtub downstairs which had a orange ring around the inside.
Other than those few things, it was a very nice rental and I would recommend it to my friends. We had a very enjoyable week!

Nice Place, rental co could have done a better job

This is the second time we rented this place, love it and the location. We did find a few things needed repair and were not quite as clean as we had expected from last year. Rental co didn't do the job we expected and didn't get back o us until the day before we left, even though I contacted them about the problems the day we arrived. Overall fun place hopefully we just had a bad run with company. Read more

Our trip was very relaxing!
Left on 07/24/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Teresa Hughes
We have stayed on the Outer Banks for about 30 years. This was probably the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. We got to spend time with our family without all the other interuptions of other things. The house was very well equipped. We did learn that when the outside sprinklers came on at 8:00 am. you had better have your teeth brushed and shower done. The water would go out in the house for just a little bit. It was pretty funny after we found out we would get water back in about 15 minutes. Our entire family is ready to go back. The paddle boat and kayaks were also a plus and we all enjoyed the pool. Lots of fun.

The house was truly beautiful. The decor is pretty and very comfortable. Every window shows a gorgeous view. Mosquitos are large and annoying at dusk, so bring some bug spray! Once sprayed down we enjoyed crabbing on the private dock. Kayaking was a blast! The pool was a awesome place to relax! As always the beaches of OBX are the main attraction, and they are just a short drive away.
