“Perfect Vacation House for our Parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration!!!”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2017

Our parents are still talking about what a great week they had.... and so is the whole family!!!! The house was perfect for our large group!! The loft became "the man cave" for the 3 young boys.... the teenage girls loved their private space in the downstairs bunk room and the adults were able to enjoy the rest of the house and get their quiet time to catch up with each other or just read a book! We all spent many hours at the pool together... and the large dining area was perfect for all of us to enjoy many wonderful dinners together!!! We all had big plans for our week in the Outer Banks.... but with the Flip Flop house being so close to the beach and to the town of Duck.... we basically just were able to hang at the house, walk to the beach, enjoy the amazing ocean.... and never felt like we needed to venture far from the house!! This family celebration in the Outer Banks was perfect and The Flip Flop house was an amazing place to spend the week!!

Response from the owner Eileen and I are very pleased to be part of the 50th Anniversary celebration. Your family members are most welcome at any time. George & Eileen

“Treasure discovered in North Carolina.”

We discovered a hidden treasure in the beautiful home of George and Eileen. Everything is at your fingertips, there are no worries...just relax and have fun.The beach is right there, and if you want to stay in, relax in the hot tub.The view is great from up there! My family and I will return again and again.

The Flip Flop Inn was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This beach house had every accomodation imaginable to make us feel at home. The beach was close enough to walk to. Plenty of shopping and restauraunts nearby. We would love to return on a future vacation. George called to check on us to make sure our needs were met. Thank you George and Eileen.

“Great Place to stay!”

We Really enjoyed our vacation. House was very clean and had every item that we needed. Owners are very nice and called to check in with us.

“This house and its amenities played a large part in our outstand”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2013

The house was a beautifully decorated beach house with lots of amenities --- from the well stocked kitchen, to the hot tub and the whirlpool bath. The extensive audio/visual material, the playstation and the games provided ample entertainment after a day at the beach or sightseeing. The secluded location provided privacy for the outdoor decks/patios. We found the location convenient to beaches and sightseeing without being in the midst of the tourist area.

“Not a 'Flop' but a 'Success'”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2012

This vacation was a last minute decision. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to find such a nice accomodations at the last minute. The home was decorated and appointed very appropriatly. We were very surprised and extremely pleased to find that the home was'stocked' with everything we needed from cleaning supplies to food prep and cooking utensils to recreational and entertainment options. The only negative experience we had was the difficulty in payment. Elan would not accept our personal check, wire transfer or even a credit card payment (unless we paid a $50 processing fee). If not for the payment issue, we would rate this an Exellent!

Response from the owner Thanks very much for your compliments about the house. Over the winter we have worked with ELAN Vacations to fix the payment issue. Credit cards (MasterCard, Visa and Discover) are now accepted without any additional fee. eChecks are also accepted. We are glad you enjoyed FLIP FLOP INN. Eileen & I hope to see you back soon.

“Perfectly appointed”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2012

The house was well appointed with great surprises at every turn. If you like to eat in at the beach as we do, flip flop was terrific. We made waffles with the waffle iron, blender drinks with dinner, grilled seafood regularly and used the hot tub daily. Our kids loved this house, they could spread out on the three floors, had plenty to do from the great movie selection to the game room with video games and darts. The beach was a short walk or ride away. The master bedroom was massive and private, everything was just delightful. The owners were great and the house feels like home as soon as you arrive.

“Great home for a really great price”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

We selected the Flip Flop Inn for our first OBX vacation based on the user reviews and photos, which don't do this place justice at all. We loved our vacation there and will make it back as soon as we can! The home has absolutely everything you could want in a vacation rental, and a few really unexpected niceties, like the beach cart, umbrellas and chairs, which put it over the top. The kitchen is well appointed with cookware and actual sharp knives! There is no shortage of deck space, either. The back deck sports enough room for an outdoor get-together with its built in benches and plenty of chairs. It has a nice gas grill. The front of the house has three deck levels with the hot tub located on the uppermost. The house is very clean and spacious with an open floor plan the pictures can't quite capture. Being set back from the road makes it nice and quiet. The game room was a hit with the kids and kept them occupied long enough for Mom and Dad to get some peace and quiet! (Note: bring your own memory card for the PS2 if you have one) Cable TVs in every bedroom, the loft, game room and living room. Excellent master suite. Wireless internet worked well. The furniture was clean and comfortable. It is a short walk to the beach down 3rd ave, or you can drive down the street to Hillcrest and park there with the parking pass. Hillcrest is about 1/4 mile away. The home is equipped with an assortment of beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, etc., and has a decent outdoor shower. George Persico was very attentive to our needs and did his best to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our experience. He called to inquire after us and we had a nice conversation. We had a couple of minor problems when we arrived and George contacted the rental agency and we had it resolved very quickly. Make sure you take the time to go to Ocracoke and see its pristine undeveloped beaches. Breath-taking. It is worth the drive! Go early and bring a picnic.

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2012

House had everything you can imagine. Rooms were spacious and clean. Kitchen had all the cooking utensils... All you need to bring is your food. The walk to the beach was short and there were no crowds in this area. The owners were so nice to check in with us to see everything was ok.

“wonderful weekend!”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2011

We enjoyed being tucked away in the woods and a short walk from the beach! Flip flop inn had all the amenities that you could possibly need and great family atmosphere. We would love to stay here again!
