“Awesome Beach House”
Reviewed 9 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This place was great, no complaints at all. The kitchen was stocked with basic cooking needs, beds were comfortable, and the house was nice and clean when we arrived. The owner (Gay) was more than helpful throughout the entirety of the booking process, and made booking our week easy and worry free. We loved waking up right by the ocean, and seeing the horses milling around the house. Not for your standard vacationer, you need to be willing to pack in food for meals, and make the sometimes tricky beach drive, but for anyone looking to break the mold of a normal beach vacation, this is the place to be. We are looking forward to returning next year.!

“Beautiful Beach Cottage”
Reviewed 15 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

Our stay was the best! We went to celebrate my husband's birthday and were extremely pleased. The cottage is wonderful and very clean plus the views are beautiful. The kitchen is fully stocked to meet any cooking needs. Our favorite part were all the wild horses on the property. We will be going back for years to come including our two dogs. What made the vacation even better were the owners. What a pleasure to rent from and easy to get in touch with. I give two thumbs up and an excellent rating!

Had a fun drive up the sandy beach to the cottage. Found the cottage exactly as described, very clean and well furnished. The owners were extremely nice and helpful. We couldn't have picked a better place for our vacation.

“Great family vacation cottage in OBX”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

Great vacation from first step into the home. Very open and airy, yet cozy. Kitchen well supplied for the "chef" to cook. Bedrooms great size and the beds were quite comfy. the bathrooms were spacious also. Back deck is the whole length of the house, great for morning coffee and afternoon relaxation after the day on the beach.
Our pups totally enjoyed the stay also!!!!
A must to check out the stars at night!!!
Our family was completely satisfied with the cozy cottage and owners were wonderful to work with concerning any questions or concerns we had.
Definitely want to stay here while in OBX. Looking forward to next year.
