“An amazing view with a great layout for a large family gathering.”

Just got back from a great week on the Outer Banks in Salvo. We stayed at Sound Adventure and had a great week! Other than not being able to get into the house until 6pm, and the 3rd floor air struggling to keep up with the heat, our week was great! The view of the sound at all different times of the day was just awesome. The private pier to walk down to the sound was a huge hit and a perfect launching spot for our kayak. We enjoyed the pool (and think it was a salt water system because it was super soft on the skin and hair and very clean without the chlorine smell). The hot tub was very relaxing!

The kitchen table was perfect for a large family... we had 24 people sitting for meals and it was not a problem. The 2 dishwashers were a plus and the multiple refrigerators on each floor was a great help to a large family who brings a weeks worth of food and beverages.

The layout of the rooms on each floor was very nice. The house was very open and no one felt like we were on top of each other- when passing in the halls or all on the top floor for meals.

Having only one washer and dryer was difficult for a house that size and only one area for a stove top made it slightly tricky to cook for 20+ people but we managed.
The kitchen was stocked fairly well with dishes and cups/glasses. We did need sharp knives tho- none were very sharp :) and we could have used more forks.

Over all, our group really loved this house. We were missing one couple and so next year this house may not be big enough for us but we would certainly rent again. It was one of the very best houses we have rented in the last 10 years.

Thank you!
