  • Outer Banks Cottage


    Overall we enjoyed our stay at this property. We had read reviews noting the living room furniture and the mattress quality; however, we found that both features were comfortable. We did noticed that the floors were very dirty upon our arrival. For example, when in the living, we found clumps of blonde hair on the floor (my husband and I have dark brown/black hair). We also noticed that the bathroom, while by first glance looked clean, upon further inspection there were aspects that should have been given more attention. For example, the sink nozzle had mold build up and the floors felt dirty after stepping out from the shower.Another downfall was that there were only 2 bath towels for the entire stay - we looked in all cabinets and draws to find others, but did not. It did not bother us, but something to note if you need more than one bath towel for your stay.The kitchen was well stocked with cooking appliances and utensils and the deck was also a nice feature.

    Lovely cottage near the sound. Close to beaches and nearby lighthouse. Ideal stay for a romantic getaway. Very clean and well-equipped. Really enjoyed our stay.

    The home was very clean and comfortable. It was bright and airy. The owner lives close but it is still very private. Over all this was a great little cottage.

    GREAT:-Beautiful updated house-Everything we needed was there except a microwave and it turns out we didn’t really need it. -Very clean-We felt safe-The dock was cool, a great place for morning coffee.NOT SO GREAT:-Furniture and bed were not comfortable for us. No place to just get comfy and relax-No view from the porch. I probably read the description wrong but I though the porch had a sound side view. There is no view at all. -The dock doesn’t have any chairs so we carried beach chairs back and forth. Also, to get to the dock, you have to walk past the owners house and pool which is fine but would be kinda awkward for some people. -No microwave so we heated up leftovers in the oven.
