Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our Outer Banks stay was great. The house is super clean and has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It's close to the beach and walkable to other locations. The owners are great and were quick to answer any questions we had! Will use again!

Great Stay in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Linda was fantastic! They could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The Skipper was so cute and cozy. We loved having our morning coffee on patio listening to the ocean. A short walk to the beach to watch sunrise. Buxton was a great area to stay in. Go to Orange Blossom Bakery to have an Apple Ugly. We will definitely be booking another stay here.

Convienant and with an appropriately nautical charm

  • 4 of 5

Can't say enough about Linda's responses and feedback! Within steps from the beach, great for beach combing. The cottage itself was very homey and comfortable. The two bedrooms were roomy with beds that were comfortable. Kitchen has the appliances you need. We did have to go buy a corkscrew, paper towels, and dish soap. It became a little warm in the afternoon, we thought some kind of fan with open windows would have been perfect. Overall, enjoyed our experience and agreed we would stay there again!

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and located on a quiet street in a great location. The beach was an easy walk down the street and the Cape Hatteras lighthouse was a 20 minute bike ride away. Communication with Linda was fast and she made sure we had everything we needed. One word of warning: there were several thunderstorms while we were there and the entire street flooded. It flooded only on the side streets like the one we were staying on and the main roads were fine, but we spent all weekend walking through 2-6 inches water to get anywhere from the house. If rain is in the forecast, bring shoes you don't mind slogging through the water with!

We had a wonderful time and I would definitely recommend staying here!
