We needed a pet friendly house for a long weekend and this was a perfect fit. Everything was perfect, loved the beach proximity for dog walks and had a fantastic stay!

The location was great. We could see the ocean from the crows nest, and the walk to the beach wasn’t far at all! My family and I absolutely loved this home. The kitchen was very well equipped, the bedding was all comfortable, and the master bathroom was very nice. We loved the layout of the house. Wish there had been something that told us the lower level was only accessible from the outside. Loved finding all the pool and beach equipment. The pool area was beautiful, loved all the lounge chairs and shade from the big tree!

Cozy Holiday hideaway!

We snuck away for our first trip to the OBX for Christmas and this place was perfect for our family! Plenty of space for 4 of us and our dogs, the beach is right there, and Duck in the winter was super mellow and peaceful. Bonus points for the most incredible night sky watching ever from the crows nest. We’re already trying to plan a return trip in warmer weather, cause the pool looks awesome!

Access was as convenient as promised. Very happy. The home was fine, just not great. Highlight was probably the crow’s nest.

Overall this was a decent house with good amenities and nice bathrooms. Kitchen was well equipped! Great pool area!! Very comfortable lounge chairs and the floats were awesome. Suggest investing in better beds for queen bedrooms.
