“Excellent Vacation.”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We booked this house for a family reunion. The house was just as described. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking needs, place settings, bar glasses, appliances etc. Everything is clearly marked so easy to find. The two kitchen areas (including 2 sinks and refrigerators) made prep time and food / drink storage easy.

The Pool and hot tub were a huge hit, as was the kayaks.
Driving on the sand was a challenge but one we expected. In fact, it was one of the reasons we chose this house. We thought it would be fun.

The walk to the beach is very manageable. About a 10 minute walk. We took advantage of the closeness almost every day.

Weather mostly cooperated; but hey- its April.

We made a couple contacts to the owner and/or house manager and response was great. Nothing Major - garbage pick up is normally Sunday, but Sunday was a holiday so we were running out of space. They were there to pick up within a couple hours. Pool heater wasn't working properly. They came out twice to fix it and due to the inconvenience, refunded our pool heating money. We didn't even ask for the refund, but it was offered. (The pump did eventually end up working on day 4 so should not be an issue for future renters.)

Thank you again Kristina, for a great vacation and your excellent response. I hope to visit this house again real soon.

“Amazing Vacation”

Stayed at the Sandy Cheeks for our April vacation with friends and our young children. House is amazing and accommodated all 5 families with no problems. Really enjoyed the hot tub ( especially after kids went to bed!) and the pool. Kids stayed in a pool practically all day. There is grill, so it was easy to prepare meals and we only ate out in a town once the whole week we were there. There is plenty of space in front of the house for kids to play soccer or just run around. Canal also gives an opportunity to fish and kayak. There is easy access to the beach and we would just pack a car and drive to the beach ( make sure you have the right car and follow instructions for beach driving). Beach is awesome and we saw wild horses every day. Getting to the house was a thrill as we rented a Jeep and our kids loved it! Thank you for an amazing vacation and great memories with our children and friends!

Our first family vacation was amazing the house, area, and the owner all was so amazing! Didn't want to leave. The beach house was very clean and beautiful inside and the outside was very private which we love. Kids had a blast. Would definitely stay here again!

“Clean and spacious and the horses were always around”

We usually travel internationally(Galpolis Islands, China, Costa Rica, DR, Mexico, etc.)This was our second trip in the last two year in the U.S. Because our kids re just at an adult point in their life to travel. Lovely and cleanest beach I have ever seen anywhere. People do care. the horses are sweet and abundant. Four wheel driving on the beach is awesome. These are new owners and they seem to really care. Bugs are bad, take heed. Don't keep opening the door. The horses don't eat celery or bananas. They like carrot and apples, but I wouldn't know, I did not feed them. Great trip , made us love the OBX. Never thought we would because I hate the drive home. Truly built memories with loved ones. Real , real, real secluded beach experience. We are emotional right now just talking about it. But we are a little sleep deprived, long trip home Sunday.

Liked best: Property owners seem to be very attentive, so we didn't care enough to complain. You have issues any where you go. This was minor. Just a bad cleaning company.
Liked least: They need to change cleaning companies,hair in the shower, missing linens, dirty trash can in kitchen, place not dusted,etc.
