You are within walking distance to Sugar Creek, Tale of the Whale and Basnight’s Lone Cedar, three of the finest restaurants on the beach! You are also a close drive to many famous Outer Banks eateries. Not only are you close to restaurants, but some of the best shopping in the area is right around the corner. This home is located only a short distance from the Tangers Outlets which contain such stores as Ralph Lauren’s Polo, 9 West, Coach and J Crew. On cloudy days, you can take a quick trip over the bridge to the historic waterfront village of Manteo, known for its exocentric jewelry stores and local art shops, great restaurants, The Lost Colony, and the Aquarium on Roanoke Island. This home will position you to take advantage of all the Outer Banks has to offer.

There is more to this home than just its location! The construction of this home is top of the line, with a great deal of attention to detail. From the gloss of the hardwood floors to the shine of the new appliances, you will know that this house is worth every penny.

"Pure Life!"

This is such a nice home and there is something here for everyone! The house is spacious and it's nice that the kids have the middle level for their bedrooms and a play area. Our older daughter has a private room, bath and balcony. All the rooms have a balcony with sliding door access. My husband and I really like the privacy of having the master bedroom on the top floor. Most of the rooms have televisions, although the channel selection is not extensive (not that we spend much time watching TV when there is so much to do.) It is also nice that there is both a sun deck and screened in porch on the top level that provide lots of options for entertainment, laying out, and eating out. The views of the Albemarle Sound are incredible, especially the sunsets! One particularly nice feature is the private canal and private dock that has a built in bench where we love to enjoy some peace and quiet with a cup of coffee in the mornings or a glass of wine in the evenings and watch the wildlife there. The other reason why we come back to this house is because of it's central location to pretty much everything! My daughter and I like shopping at the outlet mall and in Manteo, and my husband and the boys like to the tackle shops and fish off the two nearby piers. We all enjoy the large selection of restaurants, mini golfs, and the beach (of course!) -- all are within minutes. Thank you for making such a lovely home a great place for our family vacations!

Fabulous home with outstanding views!

This was our first stay here and the pictures don't do it justice. This house sits right on the Sound with a private deck and amazing sunset views and its just a quick trip across the street to Ocean beaches. Kayak fishing on the Sound was the highlight of our trip! House was very clean with warm and inviting décor. TVs, games, DVDs, books...provides something fun for all ages. Decks off of every room provides relaxing moments for those who need a little time to themselves. Love this place and will definitely be back!

nice home but....

Very spacious. .. but don't count on having any tvs that work. says it has 7 tvs 1 of them works others do not have wires to hook up and the one that does work has 6 channels.... it is a very nice home no yard to enjoy do to very high grass. Luckily there is lots of deck space. Wonderful views all around the home. Also the twin bedroom has no door on it.

Great House!

This house is beautiful. We had lots of room and enjoyed the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The Sound views were breathtaking. Check-in and check-out with Sun Realty couldn't have been easier. We will be back next year.
