Very clean, spacious,comfortable, and centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. Well stocked kitchen with cooking utensils and appliances for the nights you choose not to eat out. Great for families with children. Plenty of board games stocked for a rainy day in. A TV in every bedroom. Beds were quite comfortable. Beach is only a short walk away. Quiet neighborhood. House is centrally located to major attractions. I would certainly visit here here.

Perfect House!

  • 4 of 5

We had family staying in Duck and some in Kitty Hawk so the location of this house was perfectly in the middle. We very much enjoyed our stay at The Sand Trap. Lots of games at the house- which was perfect for a rainy day! Kathy is also quick with her responses to questions which is very helpful!

Private location

  • 3 of 5

I liked the location for the pricing. The home provided the necessary things we needed for our beach weekend I.e beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. It was great. The owner had 2 parking passes for us to park at the Hillcrest parking lot so that we could have beach access. The beach was walking distance but you have to cross a busy road so we drove and parked. Overall we liked the home. Only down side was there was not much upkeep of the home outdoors. The grounds were not well kept. There were spider webs EVERYWHERE! Inside and out! A little dusting inside could have gone a long way for those dust bunnies hanging from random spots of the home. However, there was great communication on the owners end. The owner was even nice enough to let us checkout whenever because there were not guests coming behind us. Overall good home besides the minor fixes I recommended. I would stay here again.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

My time spent at sand trap was a very positive experience. The home is much more roomy than the photos show we had 8 adults and had plenty of room. The location to the beach is wonderful. Only negative was kitchen was small but well equipped. Owner was great to work with and very helpful. We would definitely return again.
