Great house for large groups and right on the beach!
Carpe Manana was exactly as advertised. We would definitely stay in this house again in the future. The house was big enough for our party of 12 (6 adults, 6 kids...ages 3 to 8). The pictures on the website show the house exactly as it is when you check in. The ocean access is just a couple houses down. The beds are super comfortable and the furniture is solid. Checking in and out was easy and the location is great since the grocery store is within walking distance.
Please note, this house only has one full size refrigerator/freezer. With food for 12 people, we found that we were in need of more cold storage space. The freezer is about a foot wide and five feet tall, prepare your shopping accordingly.
Three things need to be replaced to make this a 5 Star house. The hot tub cover is old and needs to be replaced. The deck is in need of being upgraded as the wood is aged and some of the railings wiggle. Lastly, the grill needs to be replaced due to age and weatherization.
We highly recommend this property and would stay there again in the future.
It was amazing!
Easily the best vacation I've ever been on! House is in a fantastic location right on the beach and directly across from Harris Teeter! House was spacious enough for friends and family, upper deck provides amazing views of the ocean at any time of day! Would definitely stay here again!
overall, an excellent stay
good house for 3 couples and a single. kitchen redo gorgeous and plenty of dishes and utensils beach access very close and steps much easier than hiking over the dune. grocery store and good restaurants few minutes away. few maintenance issues were handled efficiently and quickly. an excellent property
nice get away
Our stay was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The home was beautiful, clean and very homey. Every thing was very nicely organized, the view of the ocean was awesome. It was wonderful having our pets with us and they were welcome on the beach and almost everywhere we went including an out door restaurant we went to. Sorry I don't remember the name, but they made a meal up for our buddy and he was provided water as soon as we arrived. We went to the Black Pelican restaurant in Kitty Hawk, very good, and also had crabs, which we had as a take out, one night from Kitty Hawk. Did the Wild Horse Tour which was great and our guide was wonderful. It was a little cold the day we went but had a great time. Ocean was cold but kids enjoyed it, the hot tub was wonderful and the pool was ok, too cold. The only thing missing, we didn't have hand held showers. Shopping was great. location couldn't be better. Very nice area. Kite flying was wonderful. Had a great time.
Thank you so much for your review of Carpe Manana. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again next year!
P.S. We love the horse tours too.
