Location and amenities were great
Location and amenities for Tarhoo were incredible! Right on the sound, with a pool, kayaks and plenty of beach chairs! The house was big but not overwhelming, perfect for our group of 5 adults and 5 kids! Although a great house, it does need some upkeep. I reached out to Bruce and a number of items were addressed within a day or two. The outside deck is great but in need of repair, namely resetting nail heads that pushing up and some decking that is quite splintery and in need of replacement. For the size of the house, location and amenities i would certainly recommend Tarhoo!
Beautiful and thoughtful
From start to finish, this was a great experience. The home is beautifully set up for different family/friend units to have plenty of privacy and ample room to interact. The addition of the pool raised this house to a perfect place to spend a vacation. Moreover, thoughtful pluses such as ample games and puzzles, a nice, large kitchen, a private beach area, and kayaks were enjoyed by all. The sunsets over the sound, of course, can’t be beat. And the motorized screen panel on the screened porch allowed for a completely unimpeded view!
The owner was attentive, but non-intrusive. Nothing but kudos to him on the property and his handling of guests.
Tarhoo Family Vacation
Two families that included 4 adults and 5 kids. House and grounds were super. Some of the great things that don’t often get noticed are how quite it was inside. We could not hear our friends, kids or others if they stayed up later or got up earlier. The pool was awesome and easily accessible from the deck, kitchen and living area. The WiFi was fast and TV’s we’re able to stream kids movies and such. Beds were nice & soft. Lots of board games for family time. We had bonfires every evening and used the gas grille a lot. There were great supermarkets (Conner’s especially) close by. Pizza delivery, seafood stores and more. Went for walks through the neighborhood each morning and neighbors were very friendly. The kitchen had a big & fast ice machine that kept our coolers full of fresh ice in the heat. We caught some Croaker fish in the sound and kayaked almost every day. The extra fridge & freezer in the garage was nice for extra drinks.
I would completely recommend this home and I will rent it if I get lucky enough to go back to the OBX. Thanks
Thank you for the review, I will look to put in a fire ring for next season since so many like the bonfires by the water.
All (grandkids and dogs) had a great time. Very private and off the main road. Sunsets, swimming and playing in the sound. The accommodations could not have been better. 5 minutes from the beach, 15 minutes to the ferry. (Ocracoke) would definitely come back.
Second year staying!
We loved staying here just as much, if not more, than last year. Perfect weather. Kids loved the kayaks and fishing & crabbing on the sound. The sunsets were gorgeous. Delicious dinners cooked. We did leave a crock pot there for other tenants to use. Love the new entrance and appliances. Can’t wait to return!
We have been renting homes in OBX for 20+ years and TarHoo is by far the best home we have ever vacationed in!! From the ease in booking and great contact with the owner, to the lay out of the home and amenities in the home we loved our week!! The photos do not even come close to how beautiful this home is in person!! Very spacious with 3 levels of living space! The kitchen was wonderful and made meal prep for 7 very easy!! The pool is just feet away from the home and completely delightful!! We used the kayaks multiple times a day and relaxed on the hammock daily too!! The location right on the sound lent itself to some of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see!! The master suite sitting area was a great location to sit and read at night. The mosquitoes were kept at bay with some skeeter water spray!! We used the gas grill for several meals and shopped local at Conners Market. No need to worry about bedding because the beds are made and bath towels provided. The washer and dryer were of course appreciated too!! Thank you Bruce for a beautiful home for my family to gather for the week!! We hope to visit again next year if your home is available. Definitely do not pass up on the opportunity to stay here!! Oh, we also took our dog who loved sitting on the back porch!!!
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at our home. We look forward to your return next season.
