Why Lisa chose Hatteras Island

The Outer Banks is a great location to vacation with your family. We love to get away from the hussle and bussle and relax and soak up the sun! This is were we want to retire.

What makes this house unique

The house is right on the sound and the sunsets are breath taking! The ocean is a short walk to the beach.

Great house and Great location!

Great house & Great location. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. Very convenient to some really good places to eat. The Kite boarders were a lot of fun to watch! We took some great photos at sunset. We are definitely planning to rent this home again!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! Everything was exactly as promised.

We had a delightful time enjoying dear friends and would definitely return for another visit.

There were plenty of dining locations close by to choose from and beach access was really easy.

Thanks again! :)

Fun in the outer banks

  • 5 of 5

Great view from the balcony of the bay. Kitchen fully stocked with everything you would need for large groups. Loved that each bedroom had its own private bath. When we had a question Lisa always responded right away with the information. She even went out of her way to send back my mothers coat she left behind at house. That's what I call great service. Would recommend.

Absolutely filthy!! Do not deal with this owner!! Buyer beware!! We refused to stay.

  • 1 of 5

My wife, 2 boys and myself booked this place for our family vacation. We rent every summer at the OBX. We were looking for an open place about a week before our arrival date because we have not been able to get away all summer. This was open so I contacted the owner, she sent me a quote and I agreed, then signed contract. We drove 4 hours and heard from the owner by text on the way that the house was ready. It was about 5 pm when we arrived. THIS HOUSE WAS FILTHY!! Feces on a toilet, crumbs and dust on counter tops and tables, small area rugs turned over instead of washed, chips and crumbs on carpeting. My wife texted pictures to the owner and let her know it was not clean. She texted back that she would "touch base" with the cleaner. She offered no help or resolution for this awful situation. I called her cell and got her VM. I let her know it was filthy and asked for a return phone call (which I never got). We had stopped at the grocery store and bought food for the week that needed to be refrigerated and had hungry children. An hour went by and I sent her a text letting her know that we were leaving and would not be staying. She had not been in any way helpful or accommodating to work towards a resolution. She was dismissive and basically did not care. After not responding for an hour she texted back that she had been busy feeding her own hungry children!! WHAT??!! I never received the courtesy of a return phone call or conversation. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS PERSON! Our expectations of a clean place upon arrival are certainly not unreasonable. What is NOT reasonable is her expecting a family to exist in someone else' filth or clean the place ourselves. I called my CC company and told them the situation. They said they would remove the charges from our bill and handle getting the money back. Glad I didn't write a check. She's their problem at this point. After taking MANY pics, we left to find a hotel . We packed the food in ice and managed to find a hotel room. We got on the phone the next morning and a local realty company hooked us up with an AWESOME house they had open. They got their cleaning crew there that morning and when we arrived they were hard at work. This place is not only clean and sanitized(as it should be) it's gorgeous, comfortable and has all we could ask for. After such an awful start, This has turned out to be the best vacation our family has ever had!!

Owner's Response: I just wanted to start by saying that we have been renting our home for numerous years through VRBO/Home-Away and have had several families as repeat guest year after year for their vacation. If a guest over the past 7 years has had any problem with the home, they email me and it is taken care of within 24 hours. You did notify me that the home was not clean to your standards and I responded back within 3 minutes that I would notify the cleaner and get back to you. Saturday is the busiest change over day on the OBX. I am sorry, but the 45 minutes you gave me before you texted me that you were leaving, was NOT enough time to hear back from the cleaner and resolve the issue by sending someone out to clean those areas. Unfortunately, washing every bath mat each week is not possible during the summer period, they are shaken outside between guest and replaced if dirty. I am glad you enjoyed your vacation.

Nothing beats the sunset views from the upper deck. That alone makes this house a great stay. Never mind that the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was VERY well equipped and amenities like the pool, hot tub and grill made life so much more enjoyable. My daughter discovered the fun of outdoor showers which brought a smile to everyone's face. In a nut shell: GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and it was even better than the first. Weather was up and down but that is what you get in early spring. Warm outdoor shower is ideal for those chilly kite sessions. The kids love the reverse floor plan where they can play and eat while looking out at the sound. Working for Mackiteboarding.com I have the opportunity to travel many places and this always is one of my favorite. Be sure to bring all your kites. I brought 6 kites ranging from 6-18m and used them all in a few weeks. The new Dollar General is less than 50 yards away so those late night snack runs are super simple. Also check out Waves Market for the best breakfast burrito's of your life.
