About Karen or Steve Sawin

Karen & I purchased this condominium for our retirement. We grew up in Wisconsin, married and attended university there. We owned an oceanfront motel in Kill Devil Hills for 45 years and still live on a portion of that property. We have two children and have 6 grandchildren living on the Outer Banks and another child and four more grandchildren on Chapel Hill, NC.

Our son Christopher is the director of the Dare County Arts Council half a block away from this rental.

Karen or Steve Sawin purchased this condo in 2004

Why Karen or Steve Sawin chose Manteo

This is a jewel of a little town. Hugged by water and touched by limitless sky, Manteo feels as open as what surrounds it. Locals say hello and smile a welcome to visitors. The town’s kids can be watched joyously jumping off the bridge that leads to Festival Park in the summer heat. And every direction you look, there’s an interesting shop, beckoning restaurant, creative art gallery, fun attraction … and such beautiful scenery. From one spot on the boardwalk that surrounds the waterfront town, you can see Roanoke Island Marshes Lighthouse, Elizabeth II, flags fluttering, sails catching breezes and vessels docked alongside each other, a playground with prancing kids, a gazebo perched over the water, attractive bed and breakfasts and inns and people happily taking in all the pleasure this town offers.

What makes this condo unique

A spectacular view of the harbor and the Albemarle Sound all the way to the Nags Head beaches and the ocean can be seen from your front porch. A waterfront walk-way runs from nearby grocery stores and shops past your apartment on to the Festival Park with live amphitheater, museum and historic boat replica. Deep sea fishing charter inlets beckon from two nearby locations and miles and miles of canals to be explore by kayak start a few miles away.

Great extended spring break weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend the long weekend. Steve was a pleasure to meet and a great host. He met us at the condo, helped us get our luggage in and walked us around the place. The views are magnificent and the unit could not be located in a better spot. Walking distance to nearly everything you'd want to see or do in Manteo. This unit is definitely on our favorites list.

Owner's Response: It is a joy to have shared our second home as a hideaway from the stress and noise of daily living. Get away, come rest awhile, and return a new person. Think Andy Griffith. He used to live here when he wasn't working.

3 BR Penthouse

  • 4 of 5

Great space, layout, and location. Beds and pillows could benefit from improving. Perhaps a (for,er) king in the main bedroom and a queen in one of the others? Lot's to do and good food. Price was great.

Perfect location! Great view! Comfortable and safe!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this location! We traveled with an almost 3 year old and 5 adults. We had plenty of room to rest and relax. We were able to cook and clean and not miss out on any of the conversation going on with others. The festival park is within walking distance and we could hear the concert that was going on easily from the balcony. We walked to restaurants for dinner and had plenty to choose from. We will definitely use this location again in the (hopefully) near future.

Enjoyed sitting on balcony in the evening. Wonderful walking around Manteo. Very peaceful and relaxing. Found a sweet little beach to watch the eclipse on.
