Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 3 stayed at Cottage "A" Osprey and couldn't be happier with the property. Judy was very quick to respond to any question and offered an early check in with the cottage ready for our stay. This cottage is located on a very quiet street just off the main road in Buxton. Privacy is great with a canal in the back and wooded lots to the left. The outdoor shower and covered parking under the property is very nice. Inside was absolutely spotless with every amenity needed for cooking and comfortable living. Don't hesitate to book and enjoy all the excellent activities offered by this part of the Outer Banks. We'll be back!!

We arrived early for a fishing trip with some co workers and we showed up early, she had no problem that we were here. We actually came a week after hurricane Matthew and the house was ready and the yard picked up and no sign of any damage. Will definitely stay again if it's available for the time frame again.

Thank you George and Judy for your hospitality.

A perfect family (and pet!) friendly vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Judy's Sound Side Retreat is a perfect family (and pet!) friendly vacation home.

With our boys and dog in tow, we enjoyed being just footsteps from gorgeous sunsets on the sound. We love paddling on the water and Judy and George graciously lent us equipment to be able to paddle on the sound with the kids. Thank you!!

This VERY clean house in Buxton which has everything you need - fully stocked kitchen, plenty of linens, towels, washer, dryer, etc. It is within a five minutes' drive to the Hatteras Lighthouse, the lifeguarded area of the beach, a quality grocery store, and a few outfitters. (We used Fox Water Sports and rented a SUP for about $45/day.)

We would not hesitate to come back here and highly recommend it for a peaceful stay on Hatteras Island.

Great, relaxing beach house!

  • 4 of 5

What a great vacation we had at this property! The home was beautiful and the location was great. We were in Buxton, so away from the crowds you find in the Nags Head/Kitty Hawk area. It was so great to be close to the sound - it's only a short walk from the property. Judy was very helpful! When we first arrived we couldn't find the corn hole boards and we had some trouble connecting to the WiFi. Judy had everything solved within 30 minutes of me contacting her! The large BBQ grill was great and the fully stocked kitchen allowed us to spend more time enjoying what we came for - the beach! - instead of having to go out for meals. One thing to note is that the two upstairs bedrooms do not have closets, so we all had to share. Not a big deal, but something to consider if you're planning to stay here with a group of friends, couples, etc.

When someone - a young guy, I forget his name - came to bring us the corn hole boards, he was super friendly! He recommended some great beach locations and fishing locations to give us some "tips."

Overall, we had a wonderful vacation and hope to come back again!
