“Perfect beach vacation”
Reviewed 29 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This was our second stay at this property. Both times we stayed for a week in May. House is right on the beach. No "public access" points close by, so you have the beach pretty much to yourself. The main reason we rented this house was the location and the size of the house. Plenty of room for a family to spread out. Large master suite overlooking the ocean. Two smaller bedrooms on the main floor with a full bath in between. Both of the smaller bedrooms upstairs have a sink with vanity and mirror in each bedroom...a nice feature if you have lots of people staying. Large kitchen that is open into the living room. Nice flow to the living area. LR opens out onto the large deck. Part of the deck is covered which is very nice to keep out of the sun. Comfortable furniture on the deck. I wanted to spend my time on the beach, so I pretty much went back and forth from the house to the shaded part of the deck to the sunny part of the deck then out on the beach and back. Others in the group went to the aquarium (close by) and over to Beaufort and Harker's Island. I have been to that aquarium before and it's very nice. I did leave one morning to rent a jet ski at a rental place close by. That was really fun.

There are 2 more bedrooms and a bath downstairs...not sure why these bedrooms don't 'count' as bedrooms on the listing. I think they both have windows...maybe it's because they are downstairs. There's a living area downstairs and a laundry room with full-size washer and dryer.

House is clean and well-maintained. It's a beach house, so it's not super updated...no stainless steel appliances or granite counter-tops. Kitchen was nicely stocked with utensils and cookware so we cooked in quite a bit. Got take-out several times from Big Oak (close by) and brought it back to the house.

I haven't been during the summer so I don't know how crowded this area gets during that time. The time I was there, it was not crowded at all and the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beach. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful beach vacation!
