“A Classy Vacation Experience in any Season”
My brother, who has problems walking, and I stayed at Sunnybank for a little under a week in the early spring when the Corolla horses are foaling. The layout of the well-appointed, three-storey main building was perfect for our needs: the fabulous view from the top floor living room provided the inspiration for him to walk up the grand stair case, and he could take the elevator when he was having problems walking. (There are two bedrooms with walk-in showers to accommodate people who have a problem walking.) It rained the first two days, which might have been gloomy any where else, but the library of videos, and stashes of games and playing cards gave us the opportunity to connect in ways that we hadn't since we were children. The fabulous cook's kitchen and multiple eating areas can accommodate a wedding party, family reunion, or any get away time one might want. Mine was a working vacation and the office there, which is outfitted with excellent Ethernet and WiFi connections plus a daybed for napping, was a better arrangement than my office at home. Comfort and casual, yet classy ambience abounds at Sunnybank. An excellent find!
My husband & I wanted a luxury home - a natural setting (not a golf course setting & manicured lawns) - lots of bird watching- paddling the sound- but also ocean front. At Sunnybank we always get the whole package! We are always torn- should we walk the beach, or hike over the sand dune behind the house to watch birds & maybe glimpse the wild ponies on the Currituck Sound, or just stay put in the lovely home & enjoy the decks over looking it all. We love it!!
“Sunnybank Exceeds Expectations!!!”
We took the whole family (11 of us)to Sunnybank for a week in July. The house is magnificent - a delight in its amenities as well as its location. The layout provides for privacy for family members as well as large rooms for the whole family to enjoy. We especially enjoyed cooking in the well-appointed kitchen. The beach is great for swimmers and shellseekers alike. We also went kayaking and hang gliding.
“awesome week with the family”
This was our 3rd year at Sunnybank, and it was perfect again. Karen has thought of everything you could possibly need. We have 9 grandchildren ranging in age from 12 months to 15 years old, and there is something for everyone! The home is lovely, and we all enjoyed the pool,hot tubs, and large,screened-in game room. The sand dune behind the home was a favorite of ours in the evenings for watching the sunset! Nearly everyday the wild ponies would come around too. Thanks Karen for providing this memorable vacation spot!
“Memories for a Life-time!”
I planned a 60th Birthday Celebration for myself and 8 of my best girl friends! I wanted this trip to be very special to honor the friendship these women had given me over the years. When I came across Sunnybank on Vrbo, I thought I had found the perfect spot. I never dreamed it would be even more perfect than I could have imagined! Karen was a dream to work with and did everything she could to assist me in planning our week at Sunnybank. We wanted for nothing at Sunnybank! It was outfitted with anything you could want and more. The place was beautiful, clean sooo homey and comfortable. Every day brought the wild horses to and around the house and every evening brought beautiful sunsets over the dunes. No one wanted to leave once we arrived. The trip down the beach and over the dunes to Sunnybank was a great adventure for all of us. You won't be sorry if you are fortunate enough to book a week at Sunnybank! I would go back over and over if I could.
Just spent a fantastic week at Sunnybank! The place is an unbelievable relaxation/recreation haven! They've truly thought of everything! We even took advantage of the chef-prepared dinner for 12 - didn't have to lift a finger. There's plenty of room and activity for people of all ages so bring the kids, bring the grandparents and prepare for a wonderful week. The only slight downside (and why it didn't get 5 stars) is when they say you need 4-wheel drive to get there, they mean it! Especially one with high clearance (not one of those 'station-wagon 4-wheel drives') but if you're prepared for that you'll be fine. The run up over the dune can be a little daunting. Be sure to have a spotter to make sure no one is coming from the other direction. Other than that, a perfect 10!
“Beautiful house, amazing location!”
We had such a wonderful time staying in this beautiful house compound! Everything about the place is laid out with thought and care, and the views are breathtaking. The owners are down to earth and flexible, and very accommodating. Simply put, we had an outstanding time and will certainly be back!
“What's not to like?”
Gourmet kitchen.Beautiful furnishings. Every bedroom had it's own bath.Spectacular views.The owners of this home thought of all of their guests wants and needs for a beach vacation, from kites to surfboards. The only negatives I can think of were; dim lighting in the game room and some old building materials half buried in the sand near the children's play area.
“Awesome - first beach vacation”
We just returned back from a wonderful, relaxing vacation at Sunnybank. The home was beautifully decorated inside and kept very clean. I was surprised actually how clean it was as we've rented many different vacation homes over the years when we travel and the décor is always dusty and such. But not here. Very well kept. The outdoor areas were awesome. The kids loved the huge pool! We played ping pong and pool everyday also. You have an amazing view of both the sunsets over the sound at night and the ocean sunrise. We walked to the beach everyday - it was a very short walk. The horses were a great bonus. We didn't think we'd see any, but we did, almost daily! We were worried about beach driving but it was just fine. We followed the recommendations and it was actually very fun. We drove to the Virginia border one day just to see the rest of the beach. There are a lot of neat little nooks and crannies outside and it was fun discovering them all. The kitchen was the best furnished kitchen that we've ever had with a rental. They had everything we need and much much more. Usually houses are furnished with only the bare minimum but not here. Excellent vacation. Very relaxing.
“An awesome vacation in the beautiful "Sunnybank"!!!”
I have been going to the OBX for over 25 years and I must say that the "Sunnybank”, is by far, the best vacation home that we've been too. It's decorated beautifully, has every ammendity under the sun (and then some). They really know their business when it comes to designing and creating a beautiful vacation home away from home! The home was very clean, well maintained and so well decorated that it gave me and my family a feeling of being at home and not at some rental furnished vacation home. It was very cozy, extremely comfortable and furnished to the tilt with everything we could imagine. Even though there was a slight electrical problem, the property manager John did everything he could to remedy the problem in a fast and convenient manner. I can't say enough about John. Friendly... knowledgeable... helpful... an all around good person that wanted to make sure that we had a great vacation! "What a great guy!” Even Brett the electrician that came and fixed the problem was great! Very personable and knowledgeable. I've dealt with other realty companies in the past when there was a problem, and none of them handled the situation as well as their team. They should be commended along with your cleaning crew. Views...views...views! Everywhere you look there's breathtaking views. From watching the sun rise in the morning over the ocean, to watching the sun set over the sound and the dune in the evenings. There's great views from every deck and room in "Sunnybank”, and my fiancé can attest to that, she took over 2300 pictures! In closing I would like to say a big "thank you” to the owners of the "Sunnybank” for making our 2012 family vacation a huge success!!! The "Sunnybank” is definitely at the top of my most treasured vacation memories and I'll definitely be returning next year with my family.
