“Perfect vacation home!”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

It's a shore thing was very well equipped for our large family. Kitchen was very well stocked and the elevator came in handy. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub . The walk to the beach was fine too. Even though it rained most every day, it didn't rain all day. We had a great time!

“Pleasant as usual”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

The property is aging, and upkeep isn't maintaining pace.

“Wonderful vacation? It "shore" was!”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2013

Stayed here in 2011 & are headed back this august. The house is perfect for our family--ages 3 months to 65 years. Enough rooms to have quiet time and enough room to all be together. Can't think of anything else the owners (or Outer Banks Blue) could have provided. Well stocked kitchen. Loved the pool & short walk to the ocean. Having trouble climbing stairs, the elevator was wonderful for me--but we didn't realize how much help it would be bringing up luggage, groceries & dinner from the gas grill! The only thing I can think of that could have made our vacation better (other than another week!), would've been if check in time was earlier (even if that meant checking out earlier).

“Happy and relaxed”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2012

The house was immaculate with the exception of a couple small things that you would would expect with a rental house. Loved the area and quite calmness that came with it. Would love to come back next year and do it agian.

“A week of Beachy Bliss!”

This is our 4th yr coming to OBX and we stayed for the first time at Its a Shore Thing and loved it! The house was perfect for us! The pool was beautiful, the elevator was a godsend in getting bags and groceries upstairs, and the rooms were all spacious and comfy! We loved the movie collection and enjoyed a really short walk to the beach! We were impressed by how well the kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. We can't wait to come back again next year!

“"It's a Shore Thing" is a sure thing for vacation!”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2010

"It's a Shore Thing" was an incredible vacation home for our family reunion. The entire family relaxed in this spacious home. The decor was tasteful. It had everything we needed including spices for the chefs in the family. The elevator was a God send for some of the older relatives in our family. We spent most of our time at the pool because the ocean water was too cold. The entire family had a great time from age 2 up to 72. The only complaint I heard during the vacation from my family was concerning that terrible traffic jam on our way to the island. We would have arranged our travel time differently had we know how bad it would be getting to Corolla on Saturday afternoon. Other than that, it was fantastic!

“House was perfect for our family!”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2010

It's a Shore Thing was a great house, and we would definitely recommend this house to travelers. Perfect distance to the beach, great accommodations inside the house. The owners provided everything for us. There was one problem with a DVD player and Outer Banks Blue sent someone out the next day without hesitation. One minor thing: the outside bathroom by the pool wasn't clean, but we used the bathroom inside the house when we were by the pool.

“An incredible week!”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2010

We traveled with 3 college friends and their families--10 children ranging in age from 3 months to 12 years and everyone had a wonderful time. The location was perfect and the house had everything we needed and some things we did not expect to find! I only wish they took 4 legged guests because we would return every year!

“All the comforts of home”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2009

When we arrived for our week vacation at the Outer Banks, the weather was less than ideal. We had 4 days of high winds and on and off rain. The house we rented was wonderful. It's proximity to the beach was a big plus. There were 17 of us in the house and we never felt confined. We made much use of the pool and hot tub. It was nice to have the elevator to unload and load our kitchen supplies and luggage. Having the ping pong table and other games to play kept everyone busy. All things being said, we had an enjoyable week at 'It's A Shore Thing'. The one thing I would like to see provided is a basketball hoop for the kids.
