Such a lovely little beach house. Fully stocked with everything you need. You are literally right on the beach. There are plenty of chairs, surf boards, floaties, umbrellas, toys, boogie boards, buckets, shovels (we left an extra few for the next guests) etc!!! The only negative thing I have to say is about the check in process. I arrived at 3:30pm and tried to contact the owner to find out where the key was. I could not get a response. 4pm rolled around, no response...4:30pm rolled around, still no response. At this point I'm starting to panic because the house was locked and I was never instructed about the key. ( I just figured the door would be unlocked and the key would be on the table or something) I had just drove over 10 hours with two small tired grumpy children, so we were stuck sitting on the porch trying to figure out what to do. I had to call the company I booked through to ask what to do. They informed me there was nothing else to book and could refund my money. I was at that point about to have a meltdown. LUCKILY, there was a sign on the door from housekeeping stating the house was clean. I called the housekeeping number (I felt so stupid doing this) and asked if there was any way they could come let me in maybe?? I literally had no other options at this point. THANK GOD a woman answered and informed me there was a little lock box on the porch hidden behind the bench and gave me the code to get the key! SO, after that whole mess was over, everything was fine. We had a wonderful week at the little beach box and miss it already! I wish there had been a deck. It was literally the only house without a deck which sucks but oh well. The sounds of the ocean waves every morning were amazing. The house is adorable and very spacious!!!
Beautiful location, very clean home,amazing view and ocean sound. The house was stocked with every kitchen and household items needed. I would highly recommend. The owner responded immediately to any question emailed.
Nice open space. Great location. Owner very responsive and helpful. Plenty of seating space. Would return.
The wife and I had a wonderful stay at this Oceanfront Beach Box for sure. It is right on the beach with a dead on view of the sunrise each morning. Great location as we were about a mile away from local shopping and eateries. Just a short walk to a beautiful pier. We didn't see a washer and dryer as the ad had listed nor was the grill in very good shape to try to cook a meal. It was still a great value for the price and we both will recommend for a relaxing getaway.
Great spot! The owner is timely and helpful, MORE than accommodating. I would rent again. The cottage is clean, well stocked, with GREAT air conditioning. Windows all around with PLENTY of seating for a group. I cant say enough about the accommodating way the owner conducts business. The cottage is just as listed. You won't be disappointed. If you are looking for oceanfront, THIS IS IT!
Great little house directly on the beach . The knotty pine paneling gives it a real warm away at a cabin feeling....lots of sitting places and the view is outstanding....the waves at high tide go right under the house !! The sunrises are stunning over the ocean too. The location is great because you can get to Carolla in half an hour which is at the far Northern end of the Outer Banks and from the house to Roanoke it takes about 45 minutes. You can explore the entire Outer Banks in short little hops. When you open the windows the ocean breezes and the sound of the waves crashing feet from the house is amazing too. I would highly recommend this property!!
I highly recommend this beach house to everyone looking to experience staying right on the beach! You can't get any closer without being in the water! It was awesome!
I can only describe my entire stay as awesome!
Michael, the owner, was so helpful and quickly replied to any questions we had.
The kitchen was fully stocked and great detail was put into the décor. The book collection was especially nice.
My sister and I had not been on a vacation in over 20 years.
This beach box rental was worth the wait! We had a wonderful time and could not have asked for a better place to stay or better weather!
Even when we were inside it felt like we were right on the beach because of the windows and we enjoyed going to sleep listening to the tides.
Definitely want to return and hopefully for a longer stay this time.
