I searched for a long time before booking our family vacation. My husband, our two older teens, and I were all thrilled with this rental. We were happy with the price and amenities and the owner was flexible, informative, and very accommodating. The house was clean, roomy, and perfect for our trip. It was even nicer than the pictures reveal! We had plenty of room to spread out to each have our quiet time, but also had many opportunities to play games, cards, watch movies, and have a few cooking nights. The outdoor post-beach shower was the nicest I've seen. We took our own bikes and made the 2.5 mile trip to Bodie Island to see the lighthouse. You can ride your bike many places. We made the very short walk to the beautiful beach every day. My kids loved how uncrowded the beach was. We ate out at many excellent restaurants that were all a decent distance away. We never got to the Tanger Outlet, but I'll make sure we get there next time. Thanks for this wonderful rental!
