“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2014

Sicx women shared this house on the beach for a week. FIrst..Bookijng was easy. Thanks to the realtor! It was clean. It was well stocked with anything you could want to cook with.. the beds were decent, and the views could not be beat. If you are up early, you watch dolphins go by in the morning. One renter had dogs that were annoying to a couple of us.. but not to all. BUT: we could not use the land line.. dead. And no wifi or internet access was a concern for some. Nice walk to the pier daily kept us from being lazy! Would I book it again? In a heartbeat.

Response from the manager Thank you for posting your review; we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay! While this particular property does not offer (nor advertise) internet service, it is a cute traditional beach cottage, and we are glad that you found it clean and well it should be! The landline phone should be working, so I will make sure that a work order has been entered. Please stay with us again on your next OBX vacation!

“Captain Mac's Retreat”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2013

What an excellent location! I like the old style homes so it was perfect for my party of 6. We could sit on the porch and the kids could go down the stairs and play in the sand right in front of us. There are stairs off the front porch which the pictures did not show. The house was a good size and had everything we needed. It not having an outdoor shower did not bother us any since there was a bathroom right inside the door. The king bed (which was two twins put together) was a little firm, but I am not complaining one bit. The only recommendations that I have it that the deck boards(front and back) had some nails that needed to be nailed in. Overall this was a great property and I will return to the same property again.

“Real OBX Charm...”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2013

Loved everything about this rental. Beach theme with great views, comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen. Excellent location. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience the charm of the Outer Banks in a relaxed, comfortable cottage with modern conveniences and beach right off the back deck.

“Great Beach at Captain Mac's”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

No shells. Water cold. At times some waves. Good beach for kids. Bring umbrella and chairs. Can walk to awful arthur's and they have a convenience store next to restaurant. Easy check-in. House roomy. Large dining table-good for Low Country boil! 2 bathrooms down stairs no bathrooms upstairs-wasn't a deal breaker. Décor was nice, mountain cabin beach, for the non fussy renter. Brought our own linens-glad I did. Some comforters had "urghh stains" Should wash between renter's but a lot of places don't, that's why my linens (and 4 stars for housekeeping and rental). It's about time to do a walk through and redo faucet in shower bath some faucet corrosion. Reminded me of grandma's but my daughter thought was gross. Check rugs and get rid of the slippery ones.Is older house some odd depth thresholds-not a deal breaker. House was very clean-hats off to the housekeeper. Nice flow downstairs-We had 4 couples. Air gets freakishly cold but no wet feeling associated with it. Can park 1 large and 4 small cars-we parked a wrangler under the house deck. Sunrise views priceless! Nice view of pier to the right. We would rent it again and use atlantic realty. Tried to load a picture for you but some internal server problem. You will just have to put on a pot of coffee and see for yourself!

“Great place for family.”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2012

Captain Mac's retreat is a great for families or 10 - 12 people. Lots of room. We liked the cabin-like interior and beach decor. Great beach access. Back deck is right on the beach. Check in and check out was very easy.

Response from the manager Thank you for posting! We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and hope that you will stay with us on your next OBX trip!

“Great beach house in great location!”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2011

The house was roomy with 1 king (2 twins actually, pushed side by side) 4 double and 1 twin beds. Large rooms and perfect ocean view. Nice sandy beach with no rocks, at least up until we evacuated for huricane Irene! Only thing missing was an outside shower.

“Family Tradition”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2011

We have been coming to Captain Mac's every year now for a long time. It has become a family tradition. My sister comes down with her family from Minnesota and I bring mine. We love the location and the rustic nature of the place. It makes you feel like you are really experiencing the beach. You hear the surf all the time, smell the beautiful salt air and the cool breeze off the ocean is amazing. We love the huge table in the kitchen. We use it not only for dinner but games at night. It seats our group easily. The covered deck is great for those who need some shelter from the sun and allows them full view of the beach and ocean. Atlantic Realty has provided excellent service on any requests we have had (and they have been few). This was the first year we rented for two consecutive weeks and we plan to do it every year now. I hope this place will be around for a long time.

“Feels like home”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2010

Our group felt so comfortable here last year, there was no question we'd book again and when we walked in after a year and a long day of travel, it felt like we'd come home. One of us had to do some work and was hoping there would be wi-fi this year, though.

“Peaceful and Spacious”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2010

The home is older, very beachy, with rustic charm mixed with contemporary comfort. The master bedroom is hugh with a king bed; although its more like two twins pushed together onto one frame, it worked fine. The back deck is awesome, looking right out over the beach. I highly recommend watching the sunrises with a cup of coffee. Three hundred yards to the south is the avalon Fishing Pier, which was great fun for the kids too. Two minor problems with linen and a stove element were immediately fixed. I do recommend that the front porch be replaced. The wood is aging badly. We also saw a termite inside on the stairs; hoping this isn't a problem. We will definitely stay here again. Atlantic Realty was terrific to work with and very responsive. Thanks all for a great vacation.

“The Perfect Relaxing, Peaceful Vacation”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2010

My family and I absolutely loved our stay in OBX. This was our fourth summer vacationing there, and our fourth oceanfront house. Within 30 minutes of entering this house we all agreed that this one is a keeper. No more searching for the right house. We've found it. The rustic pine and vintage look and feel of the home is something you have to see in order to appreciate. The photos do not do this home justice. This isn't a super modern home, but the kitchen is enormous, well equipped and very modern. The rest of the house is rustic, knotty pine and absolutely gorgeous. It ha a vintage cottage feel. Everyone in my family has different likes and tastes but everyone agreed and loved the house. It's right on the beach, you can sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean. A few steps and you are in the water. The only thing I disliked or would change about the house is - 1. It would be helpful if the house had wi-fi. I sometimes have to work while on vacation and there was no wi-fi access. 2. It would be awesome if it had an outside shower and 3. it could use some new shower heads. Aside from those small improvements, I would not change a thing about this house. We love it!
