“Ready to stay here again next year”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

This house was just the right size for our family. My husband and I invited our two kids and my daughter in law. Our dog loved the decks looking out on the ocean where she could watch the scenes all day. The beach was very private right in front of the house and the pool nearer the back was also private. We loved it. The master bedroom was the most comfortable. The tiled large room made clean up easy; especially with the dog. Definitely want to rent here again.

“Great location!!!”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2012

We rented through Outer Banks Blue. Their service was great, always friendly. The location can't be beat. Views are magnificent!!! The home is adequately furnished. No complaints. But, maintenance leaves something to be desired. The home in general needs some TLC and upkeep. Worn rugs, missing or broken screens, etc. Housekeepin not the greatest. But, considering the location and the views, I would stay there again. Just wish more upkeep was tended to.

Response from the manager Dear creddinger1, Thanks for your comments regarding Kestrel's Perch. This house does have a fantastic location and we are happy to report that since your stay the homeowners have been very proactive and have put in many updates and upgrades to the home for the 2013 season. We think you will be very pleased with the work that the owner has put in to ensure their guests' satisfaction. Please come back and try Kestrel's Perch again soon. You won't be disappointed. All the best from the beach!

“Less than I was expecting.”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2011

House seemed like it was falling apart. Had a different issue every day. Ceiling was falling and leaking, rugs upstairs were soaked and mildew, kitchen sink was leaking, saw some cocaroaches.

Response from the manager Dear vidnavy, Thanks for yor comments regarding Kestrel's Perch. We apologize that your stay at this home was less than you expected. We do however have good news. The homeowner has spent the last few months updating the house from top to bottom for the 2013 season.Check out the new photos that we've posted on our site ( which give you an idea of the new and fresher look that this beautiful oceanfront property offers this year's guests. We hope you will return to Kestrel's Perch again soon - we certainly look foward to serving you again in the near future. All the best from the beach!

“2009 Stay”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2009

We had a great time. The beach views/access are fantastic. We watched the dolphins everyday from the decks. It is a great house to stay in.

“A perfect oceanfront vacation.”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2009

My entire family consisting of 7 adults and 1 small child enjoyed a week at the beach in late August. Our oceanfront cottage was perfect for our needs. Comfortable with all of the amenities found in the more expensive homes. We especially enjoyed our own private pool when we wanted to cool off and get out of the sand and salt water. Located a mile north of the village of Duck, NC, I would recommend it to a group of eight or fewer.

“Splendor by the Sea”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2009

The best thing about the house is its location -- just north of Duck and right on the beach. The size is perfect for us and our two dogs. It has a large comfortable family room open to a large dining area and kitchen. It's one of the older houses on Buffel Head Road so it doesn't have the stately appearance most of the other houses have. The furnishings are adequate and comfortable except the deck furniture. The hard wooden chairs could use some furniture pads. The major negative is an outdated entertainment system (no CD player) and no instructions for how to use the components they do have so you are left to figure out how to manipulate the 4 remotes and other controls on the components. Despite that inconvenience, we really enjoyed being right on the beach feeling the beautiful ocean breezes throughout the house. We would certainly consider renting Kestrel's Perch again in the future.

“I enjoyed the home but had some issues.”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2009

the home suited our family's needs/wants as far as size, location, pool, dog friendly. we liked the layout and the fact that the two master bedrooms faced the ocean. we were disappointed with the condition of the carpeting. there were stains (large stains) in every room and in the upstairs hallway. also, there were no mattress pads on the beds. the pool lights did not work so we couldn't be at the pool in the evening, which we like to do. also, there was a great sound system at the house with outdoor speakers but we could not figure out how to enable it. Additionally, all of the oceanfront deck lights were burnt out. when i inquired about these issues with outer banks blue, i never received a return phone call. the home should come with a manual of instructions for the different features that make it unique, such as the pool area and the stereo. this house would have been perfect if: 1. the carpets were clean 2. the beds had mattress pads 3. the lights at the pool and on the deck worked 4. the outdoor stereo system worked

Response from the manager Ms. Conley, Thank you for your feedback on Kestrel's Perch from your stay in 2009. One of the great things about this site is that the homeowner has the ability to see direct feedback from their guests, and in this particular case Krestrel's Perch has been recently updated for some significant improvements to the property. Suffice to say that your issues with this property have been addressed and in fact the homeowner has put in several upgrades and improvements to the property for the 2013 rental season. We look forward to your return to Kestrel's Perch and trust that you won't be disappointed when you return. All the best from the beach!


Reviewed 8 Jul 2009

We loved the house and waking up to the wonderful view each day. We found everything to be clean and in working order. The porches were perfect for a toddler and dog. We REALLY appreciated the cooler with all the goodies upon our arrival. We have rented from other companies where not even a square of toilet paper was there on arrival. The keyless entry was wonderful as well! All these touches made for a hassel free start to our vacation.

“Utter Relaxation”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2008

The best place to pass a few weeks soaking up the sun and sounds of the beach.


Reviewed 1 Oct 2008

We were initially disappointed because the house was not very clean. With two small children, I found it necessary to vacuum immediately as there was dog hair and crumbs around the floor. The sofa and kitchen table cushions were also stained in several areas and seemed dingy. Most importantly, we rented this house because it was suppose to have a heated pool. The heater did not work all week - pool maintenance came out a few times but never got the heater to work. We were told this has been an on-going problem due to a leak in the pool. This house should not advertise as having a heated pool if it is not working. I feel we rented the house under false pretenses.

Response from the manager Ms. Zygala, Thank you for your feedback on your stay. I apolgize that your expectations were not met. The pool vendor has advised us that the pool heating problems have been corrected. I'm sorry that was not the case during your stay. We hope you will give this home another chance in the near future. All the best from the beach!
