“Nice place right on the beach”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in October 2015

The price for this house in October is great for what you get. What you get is out the door and there is the beach.
The owner appears to be on a program to renovate with some rooms done and others still needing work.
This place is all about location. A little busy even in October as the Beach access is aside of this property.

Management Response
6 May 2016
Dear dpapman,
Thank you for taking the time to provide this review. We don't recognize you as one of our previous guests in this house, we are glad you noticed and appreciated the fact that the property owner has invested tremendously in this house which has become our most popular rental property.
A completely new kitchen, new flooring throughout, new windows, completely new decks on the oceanfront and west side of the property, new bedding, a hot tub was added, bathrooms were re-done, the interior was repainted, there has been significant landscaping, and a new hvac system was installed and the owner allows guests to bring their pets at no extra charge.
Shades of Blue is indeed an excellent value and we are glad you enjoyed your stay!
All the best from the beach.

November is fabulous at the Outer Banks. Fewer people so you feel like it's your beach. Really nice house with great little touches like a telescope, 2 porches with outdoor seating for dining (with a nice tablecloth) or gaming or sunning. This home has everything you need.

“Perfect location & great house!”

We stayed in Shades of Blue last week of July. The keyless entry is so great (although would love if entry time was a little earlier than 4pm!!). However everything was perfect upon arrival - beds made and house very clean. The owner had recently updated the house and there was a great new sofa bed in the loft area which was perfect for my daughter. The views from the house are fabulous and the sound of the ocean so near is so relaxing & just what we needed! Everything you need is in the kitchen and the welcome pack is a nice touch. It's not a fancy house but tastefully decorated & the perfect size getaway (there were six of us plus small dog). The house IS beside public access to the beach but we did not have any problems with noise or traffic there. Very near Food Lion, restaurants and the Avalon pier. Three children & my elderly mother all enjoyed the house immensely. We will definitely stay there again.

We loved it here. There was some remodeling done and more to come in the future. Beautiful ocean view and easy access to the beach. We plan on renting here again next year.
