This adorable little beach house was just perfect for our visit to OBX. Such a clean & gorgeous spot

  • 5 of 5

Callie was incredibly welcoming and thoughtful. The beach house is well decorated and located in a quiet little community. Being that this was our first trip to OBX, we didn't know exactly what to expect and wow we were extremely impressed. So much to do in this adorable little town. We will definitely be back!

Perfect getaway - this place is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect getaway. My son, my friend and I were excited to find a place to accommodate the three of us at such a reasonable price. Callie was WONDERFUL and met us in person to show us around the house and offer suggestions about the surrounding attractions. The house itself was incredibly nostalgic and welcoming. Great beach access was just a few minutes down the road. Callie supplied SO MUCH for us (even coffee) and we couldn't have appreciated her forethought more. The outdoor shower was a favorite for my little guy - he used it every day. We even left a special sand dollar behind under the swing before we left with his name on it. We plan to return soon to try and find it again!
