“Ganavans Sands”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2015

This place was excellent. Lots of room for everybody. Very near the beach access. Can not wait to rent it next year.

“Fun fun fun”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2013

We have come to the outer banks for 7 years now. Ganavan Sands was so nice. We were afraid we were going to be crowded. That was not the case here, there was so much room, right across from the beach access. We all had a great time. I brought my son and his new wife, It was there honeymoon. Not everyone takes their mother and father on their honeymoon with them but they loved it and have booked a place for next year! the Sampsons

“Very enjoyable and comfortable beach house”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2013

Do not judge a book by it's cover! While the exterior of this house needs lots of TLC, everything inside plus the fabulous location make this one of the best beach houses we have ever rented. The spacious kitchen has evidently been recently updated, is reasonably well equipped and is open to the living room. The long dining room table easily sat 8, and we were able to squeeze in 10 a couple of times. Two BRs up stairs share a well equipped bathroom with full tub; downstairs are two more bedrooms plus a bonus room with two twins, the second full bathroom (shower only), a second living area equipped with a large projection TV, a wet bar area, small table (perfect for card games!), and another room with ping pong table, plus the laundry room. The small steps leading in/out of the laundry room are trip hazards - watch out! The outside shower was spacious and offered a nice shower head. Lots of parking, a well worn deck, a nice gas grill, and beach access across the street complete the package. We had a great week and hope to be back in the future.

“Delightful Beach Cottage!”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2011

My Mom, sisters, daughter and I stayed in this beautiful cottage for a 5-day off-season get away. It is a beautifully decorated and well-appointed cottage (large kitchen with plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery, etc.). It actually has 5 bedrooms rather than 4, with the 5th bedroom housing two single beds. The ping-pong room, card table, and multiple TVs provided hours of enjoyment for all of us. We even enjoyed several warm, beautiful days on the front porch rockers -- in November! We loved the sunny breakfast room, too! The owners have done a great job with the renovations. They made the most out of every nook and cranny. This would be an excellent beach house for any family of any age. We will definitely be back in future years!

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Ganavan Sands. How exciting for you and the women of your family to get away for a few days to enjoy Emerald Isle. It pleases me to know that you enjoyed all of the work the owners have done on this home. I'll be certain to let them know. Please call us when you begin planning your next girl getaway or family vacation - 1-888-832-0140.

“Feels like home”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2010

My husband and I went alone this time but,we love ganavan sands. We go the same week every year and have met nieghbors that do the same, we look foward to seeing them each year. This year we met new friends next door he just came back from Iraq and his only wish was to fish in the surf!! My husband had the pleasure of teaching him to fish(and his wish came true) he caught some. The weather was beautiful the water warm and the company of new friends made this a memorable vacation. We were able to show appreciation to someone in the military for fighting for our freedom!!! Who would of thought!!

“I could Nothave been happier”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2010

I have been coming to emerald isle for many years and have loved every place we ever rented from you. I always come with my mother and father, they are getting on in years so the time we spend there together is priceless. This year we were able to bring our new dog, a rescue dog that my parents love dearly. She is now a part of our family and Ganavan Sands was the perfect plaace for us to renew our spirits, to be still and know that God is in control and has blessed us over the years, not with material things but our bonds with each other and your beautiful house was the perfect place.

“Great Vacation, Great Value”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2010

This recently refurbished cottage is a great combination of a bright, open floorplan upstairs (with hardwood floors and lots of clean, new windows) and "rustic cottage" pine wood walls downstairs. Family-friendy, and you can bring your pet! Very convenient to the beach. We loved every minute of our stay.

“It was a wonderful family Christmas at Ganavan Sands”

Reviewed 14 Jan 2010

Everything was wonderful. We had ample linens, the cottage was ultraclean. When we could not get the t.v. right, Emerald Isle Realty came out to fix it within minutes of our call. My family enjoyed the beautiful views and warmth that the cottage radiated.
