Pros: Elevator, prime lot on Pine Knoll Shores, lots of square footage. Cons: Very uncomfortable mattresses- hard and cheap, encased in plastic with a thin mattress pad. No mattress upgrade for the master bedroom- equally awful. Very sweaty, sticky experience.

Nonno's Dream is a five bedroom Oceanfront Sand Castle that sleeps...

It had lots of space to spread out and play in, and was well maintained and appointed with good taste and a little whimsy. I did not know prior to arrival that it was a three story house; it appeared by the on-line pictures to...
