great location

Great location with sidewalks along the main road for walking. Close to grocery stores and shopping. Great view from the upper floor! Looks to have been recently painted and decorated with new flooring. Loved the colors. Beds and sofas were great and seemed new. There isn't a walkway to the beach but the dune was small enough that it was no trouble to climb.
- Terrie M. May 2023

enjoyed our stay

The house was perfect! If I had to make a suggestion, it would be to add a boardwalk to the beach, but we would stay there again regardless! We enjoyed our stay - thank you!
- Tom P. Nov 2022

great location

It was a great value at a great location, and the view can't be beat. It needs some routine maintenance to make it a 5.
- Margaret V. Sep 2022

comfortable house

Great location and house was comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed. The fridge did take a long time to cool down after we added groceries, might be on its way out. Beds were comfy.
- Sarah H. Jul 2022

we love this house

We love this house. We wish all the renters would take better care of it! Loved the new living room furniture!! Beds are very comfortable!!
- Greg S. Jun 2022

great views

Great beach views. Nice new couches!
- Anthony S. Jun 2022

everything we needed

The house was good and had everything we needed. The location was great. The common space was pretty and comfortable.
- David F. Jun 2022


Location and main living decor was wonderful. Living areas were wonderful, beds were creaky and lumpy, and pillows were quite flat. There were not enough wine glasses for a house this size, but everything else was great with kitchen.
- Nicole J. Dec 2021

The kitchen

The kitchen was well equipped for our needs. There needs to be some sort of window blind in the kitchen window,. Alrhough the views are spectacular, the sun is blinding when trying to prep dinner. The bed coverings for the beds fit poorly on the king beds one of the rooms didn't even have a quilt or comforter, over it just a blanket.
- Jody B. Nov 2021

great beach house

Overall this is a great beach house in need of some maintenance. I have stayed in three of your East Surfside beach houses over the years… this one has the best view on the beach...should also warn those with SUV, they won’t fit in the parking area under the building…especially those with a roof rack. With the awkward parking on the bend in the road that really limits parking for some. None of these issues warranted us to call for maintenance last week… it was a great week and we survived these minor issues. My comments were made in hopes of making futures stays here more enjoyable. Thanks for your hospitality and professionalism keeping track of us… we will return.
- Michael Oct 2021

fantastic location

The location is fantastic. View of the beach from the deck and the great room. What a fantastic experience! Kitchen had everything. All beds were great.
- Daniel R. Oct 2021


Great house. Bedding and living space was perfect. Kitchen was very adequate. Recommend tall Adirondack chairs for the deck.
- Daniel K. Sep 2021


Loved the house. Re-reserved for 2022. The kitchen was fantastic! All furniture was great in bedrooms and living area. The outdoor shower was less inviting than the rest of the spaces.
- Jeff C. Aug 2021

really enjoy house

We really enjoy the house, even with some minor inconveniences. Kitchen was very nice. Had everything we needed. Other than one bed being a bit "springy", received nothing but good feedback from family members regarding bed comfort. Living room furniture is generally very comfortable, with the possible exception of the whicker. The whicker furniture was fine for short periods, but got uncomfortable the longer you sat in it. Whatever issues we had, had to do with availability of service or condition of door locks. Of the four TV sets in the house, I had to spend time with each one to get them working. I was never able to get the one in the master bedroom to power-on. To Sun Realty's credit, you did a good job of hooking me up with Spectrum cable to correct that issue.
- Bob A. Jul 2021

very nice

Very nice home. Everything fine in kitchen. All was good with bedding and living area. Recommendations-gas grill outside, wooden walkway to beach.
- Sherry G. Jul 2021

love house and location

We love the house and location and just wish that renters would take care of it. Love the new mattress in the downstairs king room!
- Greg S. Jun 2021

Lovely Oceanfront Home

Although it was not a swimming week (red flags every day, with rip currents and high winds), the fact that we had a lovely view of the ocean made not getting to the beach a little more palatable. The kitchen was very well equipped, the furniture very comfortable, and the TV appropriately large (all important to our family!). Sun's touchless check-in/check-out in the age of COVID was very nice. Thank you for a lovely week!
- Carolyn Hendrix Oct 2020


This house is one of the nicest houses we have stayed at in the Outer Banks and we have been renting for over 30 years. It is decorated beautifully. The views are awesome and it is in the perfect, uncrowded location. We were unsure about vacationing during Covid, but the cleaning crew for Sun Realty had the house spotless. I wish it could be that clean every year. It was a perfect week. Thank you Sun Realty and to the owners for putting in new flooring in the downstairs. We will be back next year and we can’t wait to see what upgrades you do next!
- Shultz Family Jun 2020

Unbeatable View!

This house was comfortable for 4 adults and 5 teens/young adults. The top level is spacious with sufficient room and seating for everyone to be together for meals and games. The kitchen was fully stocked with Keurig, coffee maker, crock pot, and nearly anything you might need. The house is literally on the beach. You don't even have to go outside to see the ocean. I would rent this house again for the views, convenience to the beach and shopping/restaurants. It's important to note that the driveway is small and packed with sand. It can accommodate 3 vehicles if 1 is parked under the house. Otherwise, you will be blocking the shared driveway to the house next door. The layout is not exactly as described in the listing. Mid-Level: The queen bedroom and king bedroom share a bathroom (the views from the Queen bed can't be beat!). The bunk bedroom (4 bunks) shares a bathroom with the full bedroom. The top level has the living, dining and kitchen areas are on this floor, as well as a king bedroom that shares a bathroom with the level. My only recommendation would be to remove the carpet from the lower level since you can't help but track sand in each time you enter the home. Plus, with it being a pet-friendly house, it should reduce allergens. Overall, we were really pleased with this unit and would consider returning.
- Mary Scott Coffey Mar 2020

Great Choice

Kapadia is such a nice house. It’s not the newest one on the beach, but it’s probably got the best view. They’ve removed the carpet upstairs and replaced it with wood laminate so it feels much cleaner since it is a pet friendly house. The living area is spacious and the kitchen is more than adequate. We had a couple of maintenance issues come up but someone was there practically before we’d finished reporting them. Our one suggestion is for better lighting on the outside steps which we understand the owner must approve. We had a great week and hope to come back again next year.
- Martha Webb Mar 2019


Thank you so much for the great feedback. We will gladly pass your suggestion along to the homeowner. Our team is thrilled to see you enjoyed your stay and hope to return in 2020. ~The Kill Devil Hills Office

Wonderful time

Truly the most beautiful views ever. This is a great beach house and extremely well stocked with everything you could possibly need. It would be perfect if the owners would remove the carpet and have laminate everywhere. Carpet and dogs not a good idea. Other than the carpet, couldn’t ask for any better.
- Susan Cox Jan 2019

Needs better maintenance, but worth it anyway

This home is is beautifully decorated and has gorgeous views. As others have mentioned, it also needs to be better maintained. The screen door was literally falling off the hinges - When I let Sun know at the beginning of our stay it was removed and replaced at the end of our stay. The outdoor shower was rusted and didn't work - it was replaced too but the large sand build-up inside the stall made it useless to use. Contrary to the current description it is the full bedroom that shares a bathroom with the bunkbeds and the king and queen share a bathroom. I wouldn't pass on this house as the views and the roominess make it worth it - but don't hesitate to contact Sun with any issues. Their maintenance crew is great, but be prepared to wait for the owner to give permission for the fix.
- Cathy Jun 2016

Great location

View amazing! Again the screens in the sliding glass doors need to be fixed or new ones put in. With the $125 pet fee, they need to shampoo the rugs. If it is not done, the next people will not care and let their dog mess on the rug. I did not have my dogs this trip, but I try to respect the home, which apparently some do not. Once cleaned, inspect after each tenant and if the rug is stained THEN charge the pet fee. Except for the above, a great time.
- Christine May 2016


We appreciate your feedback and are very pleased that you enjoyed your vacation in Kapadia. Pet friendly homes can provide unique challenges for us and we address them as quickly as possible. Your thoughts have been passed on to the home owner and a carpet cleaning will be scheduled. 


Love the house with all of it's updates. New furniture, curtains, bedding, paint colors. It was such a delight for us to walk in and see how bright and pretty the owners decorated it. And all the windows/balcony doors in living area were wonderful for seeing the ocean. Wish it were my house!!! Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends.
- DONNA MABE Aug 2015


My family and I had such a good time at Kapadia! Sure the house had some glitches: loose nails on steps, unusable outside shower(which they fixed), flooding dishwasher (which they fixed),but all houses have problems. The bedrooms were comfortable, kitchen was fully stocked, plenty of bathrooms for 11 people. We came for the beach not a palace. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you for a great vacation!
- Elizabeth Jun 2015

A great beach house just got even better

We have stayed at several Sun Realty properties, but for our small family, Kapadia is the perfect beach house. The view from the wraparound deck is outstanding. And all those previous comments about rundown appliances and furniture? Forget it..... Kapadia has been renovated and the new furniture is beautiful. The kitchen is fully stocked with brand new appliances,cookware,blender,coffeemaker,toaster. We always bring a few things from home "just in case". We didnt need a thing - its as well appointed a vacation house as you could want. The bed in the master bedroom is amazingly comfortable. The new paint job is restful; ideal colors.Very Zen. We even took photos to try and match the paint for our own home. We look forward to returning to Kapadia again soon.It was so perfect for us I would not even look for another place to stay. Thank you! Phi,Beth and Spencer Cavanagh

Amazing view

The view from the decks and the living room are breathtaking. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. Love the house but it is time for some maintenance and a good cleaning. Large stains all over the carpet. Screens on sliding doors are torn and let insects in. Need to replace filter in AC. The kitchen is not well equipped. Not even a can opener and like only two knives--neither of them decent. Half the TVs in house don't work--one in living room takes forever to come on --I think it is an antique. The view is amazing and with some maintenance and thorough cleaning this cottage could be amazing also.
- Carolyn McGinnis Oct 2014

Great view

Our 2nd time renting this house and the wear & tear are obvious. The home is for sale, so maybe that's why not much maintenance seems to be apparent. An old refrigerator sits in the garage, unused vinyl siding is strewn all through the dunes next to the house, and the stains on the carpet are large, and plentiful. The view is breathtaking, which is the saving grace. The kitchen is poorly equipped, with two blenders; neither of which has the rubber gasket, so they both leak. The coffee maker is on the verge of breaking down, and the lack of cooking utensils was frustrating - not one decent knife in the house. The deck furniture is splintering, and a bit dangerous in my opinion, especially the wooden rocker that is literally rotting away. I really think with a bit of TLC this house could be amazing. I wish I could afford to buy it and give it the care it deserves.
- Rebecca Wilson Aug 2014

Perfect Thanksgiving

The view, the location, the weather and the sun made our Thanksgiving just perfect. We had everything we needed to cook a gourmet Thanksgiving. The kitchen has seen its better days, but it didn't keep us from thinking that this is our new favorite place to rent!
- Amy Dec 2011

Awesome View

This house really has a beautiful view! Oceanfront location is excellent. Fully stocked with all the kitchen gadgets we had at home. Could use a thorough cleaning though, the interior is a bit outdated, but the living room/dining room has a real beachy feel to it and the windows allow spectacular views! Looking forward to staying there again!
- Jeff & Lisa Oct 2011

Another wonderful week at

Another wonderful week at Kapadia. It's showing signs of age, but still quite comfortable and the views are great. FYI - Regarding the previous review, the coffeemaker has been replaced, so not to worry!
- Steve Crane May 2011

Good views of the beach!

Good views of the beach! Great location! But, bring your own coffee pot. One leaks faster than it brews and the other no carafe that will fit. The carpet is need of a good cleaning, stains everywhere. Need better knives and forks. Only 2 steak knives! If you have more people than that you will have to share.
- Bert Vandermolen Apr 2011

The location of this house

The location of this house is tremendous. We stayed in the same house about 5 years ago and there was a road and some other houses between it and the beach. A couple storms got rid of the houses and the road, so the semi-oceanfront house became oceanfront with access to the beach directly in front, from the driveway. The owners recently painted the inside top level to freshen things up a bit. All houses we've stayed in on the Outer Banks have been compared to 556-A Kapadia, one of our favorites.
