Great Vacation Home

"My family and fur babies, loved this house!! Location was perfect, layout of the house is wonderful! My only recommendation would be some minor updates to the interior. Otherwise, we loved this house and can't wait to come back!!! As for Cove realty, I was so pleased and greatly appreciative of all their help!!! "

Beautiful home with gorgeous sound views!

"We had 8 adults, 3 kids and 3 small dogs on our vaca. This house had more than enough room for all of us! The kitchen is spacious and the sectional in the living room was big enough for us all to spend time together. We brought some tubes and floated in the sound! We had a great time!"

Wonderful week

"We really enjoyed our week. Being right on the Beach was so convenient with kids. The house was cute and overall in good condition. The kids had so much fun playing in the sand under the house when it was hot out on the beach. I would definitely recommend for families."

Love this place!

"I have not actually stayed in this house but I’ve stayed in the other three. For about the last 4 years I’ve visited with the folks that are in #1. I envy their view of the ocean. The recent renovations are a real improvement, especially the dog-friendly flooring. I’d highly recommend this vacation house!"

Much-Needed Haven

"It’s 2020. There’s a raging global pandemic, and three members of our household are considered “vulnerable.” So we are especially careful about keeping cooties away from us, and keeping our cooties away from other people. We needed to find a place that would provide everything we needed, in order to reduce both our risk and the risk of the local population. This place checked all the boxes! Huge enough for our entire group (yes, we all isolated for 2 weeks prior to vacationing together). Gorgeous and clean. Hot tub. Fabulous pool. Outdoor shower!! And decks galore. Plenty of privacy (back yard surrounded by pine trees). Private pier out to the Sound, so we went kayaking on multiple occasions. Gorgeous sunsets. Pool table! The one thing that would make this a perfect place is if there was an elevator—we wanted to bring Grandma with us, but there was no way she could handle all the steps—and because the living room/dining room/kitchen are all on the top floor (to maximize that gorgeous waterfront view), being able to go up and down multiple sets of stairs was required. They have also implemented excellent protocols for minimizing COVID spread—from allowing extra cleaning time to rotating sets of linens, and that was a huge relief for us. In a year with so much stress and anxiety, this property provided our family with a week of feeling NORMAL. Even my phone didn’t recognize my face when we got there, probably because I wasn’t looking completely frazzled like I have all year. The only downside is that now we are home, and have to live in 2020 again! We will most definitely be back. Thank you VRBO!"

Awesome place

"Love the house and location! Cove realty was amazing. They called to check in on us on first day make sure everything was ok and if there was anything we needed. The house is amazing beautiful views,plenty of space. I have 3 adult children in their 20s with spouces so everyone needs their privacy.We loved the hot tub! The outdoor shower great getting clean before you go in it had hot water. The dock had crab traps and the kids fished and caught crabs.We were close to everything and far enough back to be peaceful. I can't say enough about the house and OBX we loved it.The only thing I can think to mention is the stairs it was more than I thought. I have bad knees from a wreck years ago so it did start to bother them. It wouldn't keep me from renting the house again just wanted to mention so anyone else with the same problem. Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home and Cove realty for making the process easy."

Great stay

"This was our first time at the Outer Banks and was wonderful. We brought our boat and there was plenty of parking but best of all the boat ramp to the canals were directly across from the driveway. The house was clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything that we could ever need we cooked everyday. We all had a great stay would definitely stay again."

Perfect Beach Getaway

"We stayed at the castle in the sand with 6 people (ages 25-35) and had a wonderful time. The property was perfect for our group. We did not utilize the room with the pyramid beds, so we would have been comfortable with 2 more adults. The property was well cleaned and free of any clutter from past guests. In the kitchen we found the essentials; pots, pans, plates and silverware. Check in was a breeze and check out required only a phone call. The location is perfect with beach access through a well traveled sand path across the street. It is a quiet stretch of beach allowing us to get several yards of beach in all directions. The house is walking distance to coffee shops and ice cream. Restaurants are only a short drive away and ~10mins to restaurants on the sound. Overall a wonderful stay and we would certainly book this house or with cove realty in the future!"

Great Place

"Perfect space for our family of 4. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook at home. Washer and dryer were HUGE so it was easy to keep up with beach towels. Pantry area and closet in the kitchen area allowed plenty of storage. The pool is very close and the kids enjoyed it. My only wish would be patio furniture. However, that space provides a good place to hose off the beach."

"My family has rented The Calm Ocean for four consecutive years now. We will be booking again next year. The house and location are great. The owners have provided numerous upgrades, and the access to the kayaks and fishing across the street is the perfect ending to every beach day. "

Great last minute find!

"We booked after other vacation plans fell through due to Covid-19 complications. Found this place on a whim one month before our stay and so glad we did! It has all the charm of a true beach house. It was clean but parts are dated. You can tell the owners are remodeling here and there and if they continue the place would be even better. The walk to the beach was super easy and only takes about 3 mins. Making it great to go back and forth. This place was great and helped make our week away amazing!"

Comfy family condo near beach

"We really enjoyed our stay in this Kitty Hawk condo. Great set-up for a family. Short drive to public beach access and attractions like Jockey's Ridge State Park and the Wright Brothers Memorial. We didn't end up using the community pool, but it is visible from the condo and looks nice. Would definitely return!"

Awesome house

"Thank you! We are packing up the final touches before we head out tomorrow. Had an amazing time and just loved the house. We did not find any boogie boards or sand toys as in the previous post, however expected things being taken away due to the current pandemic. The house could not be better situated. It’s was just the 3 of us so we had a ton of extra room, just how we prefer. The updated touches made us feel at home. We have sent in the pre reserve for next year and cannot wait.

Beautiful and attention to details.

"We loved your house. There were 7 of us, 4 adults, 2 children,and 1 dog and there was plenty of room for more. The layout of the house was well thought out and beautifully decorated. First off we want to thank you for sharing your home with us and allowing us to bring our family pet. You have no idea how appreciative we are of that. We noticed the dog cage downstairs and the gate that was added to the deck. All the extra boogie boards, the sand toys, the chairs, the umbrellas, extra refrigerator and even the rugs outside the doors that easily took sand off your feet. Too many extra details to list but we noticed. Our house was perfectly clean and neat when we arrived so your cleaning staff should be commended. Easy access to the beach and a great view of the ocean. We noticed your lovely picture on the TV stand too. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We usually try different areas in OBX each year but if we ever stay in South Nags Head again this will be the place. Thank you so much for all you put into your home and sharing it with us. "

The kids love playing under the house when the sand gets too hot. The outdoor shower is perfect. Clean and cute and right on the ocean.

Great house for the family

"We had a great time in this home on our vacation. The house was perfect for our group of five, my sister and I, plus my three kids. The teens stayed on the second level and it stayed relatively warm, that would be my only complaint. (The third floor AC worked great.) I loved the back porch and spent every evening there. Cove Realty was excellent to work with, always available when i had questions, and made sure i was checked in upon arrival. I highly recommend this and any home they offer!"

Great times!

"First of all, SUPER CLEAN HOME! The family loves it here. Public beach access very close. We found public sound access in the neighborhood on our last day ([didn't explore enough at the beginning of the week ;-)]. The kitchen is well stocked. Three big TVs, but we found we didn't really watch during our vacation because the weather was just so great! Public beach access is very close, but we explored a little further (15 min. drive) to Coquina Beach, which was awesome. Close to SO many things like restaurants, Wright Memorial, Jockey's Ridge, Jennette's and Nags Head fishing piers, and tons of shops! Puzzles and games were nice to have here when we got too sunburned to go to the beach. Very nice house in a safe neighborhood."

OBX 1st week after opening.

"We had a good time considering that it was the 1st week the OBX had opened to visitors after the covid-19 shutdown. The house was excellent and had access to channel which allowed us to fish. The weather wasn’t cooperating with us, but we made the best out of our time. Was really close to the sound and the beach and we made it to the bench twice. Was able to get some fishing done, but would have been better if the weather wasn’t so bad. Overall it was still a relaxing time, and had plenty good food due to local seafood market. Would definitely do this trip again."

"Not only was this house beautiful, spotless clean and had everything one could possibly need, it’s in the best location ever! The house sits on the edge of deep water (especially when the tide is high). Fish are jumping, the blue heron is hunting and there are many different bird species and flocks of geese flying! This place is heaven for nature lovers and anglers! As far as fishing goes, we caught redfish, black drum, eels, spot, white perch, speckled trout, pin fish and even a ray from our backyard!! This house was perfect for us in every way! We’ll definitely be back!"

Family LOVED it!

"Well Furnished, well equipped. Lots of room. The pool was great. Even though the house is in a neighborhood, its very quiet and private. The room containing pool and beach toys, games and corn hole, chairs and umbrellas, was a huge plus. The boys found the side yard to be a huge natural sandbox, buckets shovels and the monster trucks they brought from home kept them busy for hours. The Epstien Public Beach Access is less than 2 miles away and the Public Sound access is at the back of the neighborhood. Would definitely recommend it to anyone and would definitely stay again"

Cove Realty Response:

Thank you so much for your feedback on this rental home.  We've been in the talks with this homeowner about various updates around the house, which is planned for the 2019/2020 off-season, so keep an eye out for updated pictures in early 2020!

We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at this rental home and we hope to see you again!

Great beach house

"We enjoyed our stay at Second Dream. Everything was as described, and in many cases better than expected. We appreciated the use of all kinds of beach equipment, especially the beach cart. There is a path to the beach almost directly across the street, so it was not necessary to walk all the way down to the official public access. We will most likely stay again in the future."

The whole week we had to use the back door to enter/leave as that was the only one we could lock. We called Cove on Saturday after arrival, but not sure anyone ever showed up; if they did we didn't notice as the door never really worked. Other than that, it was a clean house, had everything we needed, and we loved our stay!"

Cove Realty Response:

Thank you for your feedback on this rental home.  I'm sorry for the trouble you continued to experience on your lock throughout your stay.  While I see that maintenance went to clean out the mechanism when you first reported it, since the issue still persists, we'll be sending maintenance back out to completely replace this lock.  Thank you so much for letting us know.

We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again!

Short walk to the beach, which was never overly crowded (like it is at the jersey shore), but was still very close to a ton of restaurants and other fun things to do.

Great location. Great neighborhood....with beach parking passes!

"We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Southern Shores, as we had free access to great parking at the local marina and beach. If you don't fancy hiking up 20 steps to your home, this is the place (only 2 steps and you're in). There was a lovely back deck, a shady place with chairs in the side yard, a wagon to roll your items to the beach, lots of interior space, a closet full of games, and a kitchen full of cooking items. Bosch dishwasher too! This place had everything you would need. Bed was comfortable (there are 4 twins and a queen bed, and a half bath in the master, and full bath in the hall...with a shower/tub combo. Didn't use the fireplace, but it was facing both living areas. Super easy key...just a button combination that you can change to a number of your preference! Loved the whole week! Thanx"

Cove Realty Response:

Thank you so much for your feedback on this rental home.  I have forwarded this information to our maintenance department so they can immediately blow out and pressure wash the patio area.  I also added a note for the cleaners and inspector to keep an eye on this area during weekly cleans.  We save all reviews and feedback forms for each rental and will be forwarding this information to the owners so they can address replacing outdated items for the next season. 

We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again!

First OBX visit was terrific at this property

"This property was a great choice for our family of 4. The rooms and features were comfortable and allowed us to enjoy our vacation. A multi-use trail is adjacent to the property. We bicycled up and down the bay, over to public beach access, and also to restaurants. OBX cities should build more trails. Kill Devil Hills doesn't have curbside recycling, which is a shock. In KDH, Kitty Hawk, and Cape Hatteras, crossing the 'main drag' on foot, on a bicycle, or even in a car is downright dangerous. They should build pedestrian overpasses. Cove Realty was top notch.

Great for Large Groups

"This was a great house in a great location! We had a total of three family units with multiple children of varying ages and everyone had a great time. There was enough space for everyone. The proximity to the beach and other amenities was awesome. The porch and hot tub were great for hanging out on and in when the kids were in bed. Having two fridges was great, and I am not sure how we have vacationed without that number before. Perhaps a deep cleaning would help to add some shine to the house, but otherwise we all had a great time."

Matthew H. from Todd, NC, 07/02/2019

Great price and location

"Enjoyed our vacation here, very reasonable price and convenient location. A couple minute’s walk from the beach and 10-15 minutes from food lion. Having both the shower and hose outside the house was also very helpful. A few minor complaints: air conditioner in the room with two beds was very loud, depending on weather it’s better to use the fan at night and AC during the day. Charter spectrum internet isn’t ideal especially in bad weather (download shows before a storm comes through), but don’t think there’s anything property owners can do about that. There’s a shortage of grounded (3 prong) outlets in the bedrooms, would recommend bringing a power strip if need be. All relatively minor complaints especially with the great price, overall 4.5 stars. Would recommend for families/groups of 4 people who are looking to spend a lot of time on the beach on a budget."

Path to beach is a steep climb over the dunes. We have passes to Hatteras so we usually drive on the beach anyways. Other than that it is great! Kitchen is well stocked! Loved the screen in porch to leave our beach stuff & coolers. Bedrooms & Beds are comfortable. With six of us, we never felt that we were on top of each other. Lots of room in two tv rooms.

Beach in April

"Spring break for the grandchildren is what drove me to this choice of mini vacation. Even though the weather wasn't perfect we were still able to do some surf fishing, building sandcastles, flying kites, seashell hunting all as a family. It made it easy with direct beach access staying at Sunrise Beach cottage. We were even able to do some ghost crabbing at night that children (young and old) love to do. Convenience to stores. The cottage was old but so warm and welcoming. The view was awesome and the sounds of the ocean were thrilling. We saw dolphin play and pelicans fly each day right from the decks . The realtor/owner were so ready to assist with any needs. We would definitely stay again."

The owners have done a great job--the kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, wine glasses, pots and pans, and everything was super clean. A cook's delight! The beds were comfy, and the two king BR's afforded nice views of the ocean. We enjoyed early morning walks on the beach, and the deck gave us daily views of dolphins playfully passing by. The laundry is only accessible by going outside, downstairs, but this wasn't a problem for us. The Wi-Fi was fast, and there were puzzles, books and DVD's available. Loved the open concept living space. We will definitely keep this house on our list of favorites."

Great stay...

"Where to begin? A few pros and cons The pros: Great location Great amenities Pretty "beachy" decor Lots of room Cons: Needs interior/exterior maintenance (paint, dune cleanup) Better doors and/or locks A little $$ from the owner for some maintenance (paint (inside and out)) deck maintenance and new doors and/locks would take this place from a 4 star to a 5 star property; We arrived suprisingly early, so we stopped into Cove to get an idea as to when we could go to the house, and was ready and we got a very early check in! Thanks! The house was clean upon arrival. We had 2 minor issues (WiFi and pool sticks). We called Cove and they had both issues resolved within 2 hours with a followup call the following day. Impressive. All said, this was one of our favorite vacation homes. It's not a McMansion by any stretch...but you get enough of those McMansion amenities to make for a great stay. Great, seriously well stocked kitchen (keurig and regular pot, blender, gadgets galore, pots, pans, cutlery, bakeware, etc). Pool table (older, but usable and sturdy). Hot Tub (older but in good condition). Fast, reliable WiFi. Oceanfront! The home was very comfortable....nothing too "fancy" that would make a family with kids or a dog overly anxious....but nice enough to feel as if you are on vacation. This is great for large groups...nice bedrooms (beds that we used were quite comfortable) cute rec room and the dining table seats at least 8, with another table not too far away that seats 4 more. The views from both decks is incredible...and you can hear the surf from most areas of the home. The area seemed quiet...but might not be during in-season, as it is only a few houses down from the fishing pier (which unfortunately. was closed for the season). The pier added a nice touch to the scenery, though...even empty. A grocery store (Food Lion) is a straight shot less than a quarter mike away, as are several fast food places and eateries. Very easy to come and go. Jockeys Ridge is quite close, too. The exterior doors. They lock, but don't seem/feel very secure. The refrigerator door hits the glass kitchen door...careful. There were several areas of the interior of the house that appeared to need paint or at least a touch up, but particularly in the Master bedroom, where it looks like a previous tenant may have left windows open in the rain. There were blue specks on the dune area of the house. Upon investigation, I found it was pieces of peeled paint from the home's exterior. Considering all of the pros, the few cons and our great experience with Cove Realty from begining to end, we will definitely stay here again (if we ever dare to drive I95 near Virginia i think we've found our go-to realtor and home for our Outer Banks fix. I hope this helps anyone who might be considering a stay at "The Blue House". "

Sea love

"Our family has been coming for the last several years and ABSOLUTELY love and look forward to coming every year. Sea love is perfect for us and our doggie. The only bad part is having to leave at the end of our vacation. Can't wait to come back. We are even considering booking a week earlier in the season in addition to the week we normally go. "

Going back next year!

"This was our 1st time staying in the Cockrell. Even though we had to leave the next day because of the hurricane, we loved the house and the location, and have already booked it for next year. It is a perfect beach house. The side porch with the extra refrigerator was a great extra perk! "

"My Family of six adults, stayed here and we all agreed this is a beautiful home. The location was convenient to restaurants, activities, and many beach accesses with free parking. The home is just like it is pictured. The outdoor deck’s are wonderful. Happy to see they have a grill to use on the lower patio next to the beautiful, awesome heated pool, which was a must for my wife. The rooms and beds were comfortable and very clean. The kitchen was large and immaculate. It was fully stocked with dishes, pots, glasses, blenders, toaster etc. The check-in process was so easy. Cove Realty and the owners were wonderful to work with. Large double driveway can easily fit six cars. We highly recommend this home. Don’t hesitate to book. Its well worth every penny and we would definitely stay again! Gary Yon "

Quiet neighborhood, cozy house, bring your kayak

"First, the neighborhood - I’ve stayed in Old Nags Head Cove community before and will definitely return. It’s very quiet, and close to lots of shopping, restaurants, activities, and beach access. The sound side beach in the community is small but it doesn’t seem to get crowded. The house is great, and I noticed that the living room furniture and tv shown in the pics has been upgraded and it is all comfortable. The kitchen is very large and everything works just fine. Plenty of closet space in the master bedroom, and lots of hangers. The central air conditioning works perfectly too. Oh and two people can use the two showers at the same time, it just takes a little adjusting of the knobs, this was a real time saver for us. We rented kayaks for the week and launched them right into the canal from the backyard dock. The grill is out front beside the garage and it’s one like you would find in a public park, so bring your charcoal. We used it for steaks, burgers, and dogs without any issues. I would stay here again."

Family Vacation

"Money well spent for a family vacation rental for two adults and three children. Well stocked kitchen and was glad comforters and pillows were available! The air conditioning cranking frigid air was a nice break from the humidity. Boys had a blast using the telescope and finding Neptune and Pluto! The highlight were the two deer we saw right in the backyard! Highly recommended for a no frills, cool place to stay! "

Memorable week in OBX

"Took my daughter and her friends down for a week of relaxation and sun. Plenty of room for everyone and a big open floor plan where everyone was able to gather and enjoy time together. The deck is fabulous, and the sunsets were gorgeous. Great location, close to places to eat and attractions. We will definitely be back! "

510 Sea Love

"Our family has been coming back to Sea Love for several years and will again in 2018. The "on-the-beach" location is one of the best in Outer Banks. The cottage is dated and could use some new furnishings, but the location more than makes up for any shortcomings. A good value!"

Thank you for your feedback.  In regards to your input, this home actually underwent some new furnishings for the 2018 season, including new couches!  So we're looking forward to your feedback after your stay this year!

Nice little paradise

"Our family stayed in this beach house from 6/23 to 6/30. We had a great time and were very comfortable. The house is located 1 block from the ocean on a cul de sac, you go to the end of the street and cross the road and the beach access is right there. Included with the house Is the country club which is almost right across the street. We could walk to the beach and to the country club. If you have children, the club offers many activities for them throughout the day also water aerobics and water Zumba in the morning for the adults. The beach house has a hot tub and a small pool (it was big enough for our family to enjoy). Most kitchen ware is supplied, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, also has a toaster and a coffee maker. The beds are very comfortable. The outdoor shower was also a plus. The Food Lion was very close by to get your groceries. The only complaint I would have is the week went by way too fast. "

Great Week in the OBX

"Great location right on the beach....literally!! A couple things that could use improvement is: 1. Parking is tight even for two vehicles. 2. furniture and bedding were satisfactory, but could use an upgrade. Other than those few items, the house has everything else you could need. With the house right on the beach, were able to watch dolphins swim by from the balconies several days for the week we stayed. We had a great week here and would definitely recommend this property.

A great beach vacation

"The house is large and the location is excellent! We got to the house on a Sunday and we rented linens... They were not at the house when we got there. Cove Realty contacted them and had the linens there in a couple of hours. The house needs some updating and the TV's really need to be replaced with something larger and up to date. The kitchen is fully furnished with every utensil you would ever need. We had a wonderful time. A few upgraded and this house would be 5 stars."

Perfectly located, easy FUN-in-the-sun beach cottage!!!

"We stayed here for our children's spring break and it was perfect! Plenty of room for the grandparents to join us and we all had such a great time. The cottage is so roomy inside and feels really private outside. It's practically on the beach with a beautiful, short private walkway to the beach! We could leave our beach chairs on the beach and come and go all day as it's literally less than a minute to the house. We've stayed up and down the beach but this is by far the prettiest part of the beach we've stayed on. The location was convenient to great restaurants and all the sites. Everything was clean and comfortable and the house has a beachy, artsy vibe. Really nice and helpful owners. We can't wait to go back!"

Great location, charming, large, comfy cottage steps from the beach!

"Amazing stay! ? ? ? ? ? We stayed at the Breakaway in March 2017 and had a wonderful stay! We saw whales heading north just in front of the cottage, dolphin in the waves and enjoyed beautiful long walks on the beach each day, passing by the famous "historic cottage row" which Nags Head is known for. The cottages are just a short walk up the beach from the Breakaway! The cottage is cute and was more spacious than we expected. We liked having two family rooms and all the porches and decks to spread out on. Best of all was the location - just steps to the most beautiful beach and ocean! Everything we needed was nearby - two nice supermarkets at 2 minutes away and plenty of good restaurants. They have two bikes and a bike path runs right by the cottage which was fun for exploring. The kids loved playing in the sand and there were plenty of toys. The cottage is really well equipped, they've thought of everything! Thanks for sharing your adorable home. We will definitely be going back soon! Date of arrival March 19, 2017 "

The Rents Home

"My parents designed and built this home with large families in mind. With four kids of their own and many grandkids, they made sure that the home was designed with a large dining table and family room for great family time! The outside deck area is perfect for a cocktail while watching the sun set over the Sound! Very comfortable home makes for a great vacation!"

Great time for all!!

"The past 2 years, we've had a mini family reunion at The Lovell's. There is plenty of room throughout the house for getting together or for spending some time alone. The decks are fantastic for geting some sun and plenty of room for everyone to join in. We ate in for a few meals and found the kitchen and dining area very spacious considering that's where everyone gathers when there's food around. With new appliances and extremely clean rooms, it really feels like home, but with better views! The location on the Outer Banks is great as there's privacy from the main highway (very quiet neighborhood) yet very easy access to beaches (a short walk or bike ride away) and shopping/restaurants. We found very little traffic at this area of the Banks. Overall, we loved the place so much, we made it a yearly vacation spot."

Douglas Z. from Marlborough, 04/18/2018

Great for multiple families.

"Overall we really enjoyed staying at this house. The spacing of bedrooms made it good for different families to come together without feeling over crowded. The yard was great for kids to play. The balconies were great for morning coffee. And the walk to the beach was easy. We really appreciated that there was a fridge on each level and the ample pantry space. I would recommend it and return."

Amazing View-Feels just like Home

"We love the OBX and were super excited to bring extended family for their first trip. The kids just loved everything about the house. We never once heard I'm bored which was amazing since it rained 5 of the 7 days there. The cover porch is great for morning coffee and even more awesome for watching the sunset on the Bay and enjoying adult beverages. The house sits near the end of the road and the community was so quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed many walks and took hundreds of pictures of all the themed mailboxes and cool front lawn ornaments. The house is so close to Food Lion and all the local coffee shops, restaurants and stores. The location was only a 3 minute drive to the beach access and the beaches were awesome. The home had very clean modern bathrooms and the covered car ports were great during the rain and for the kids to play outside. This home had fast internet and flat TV's. There was a gas grill which you do not find often in rentals and everything you need to feel comfortable and relax. My sister and her family loved it so much in a week of rain that she called me when we got home and said book the same house again next year. We will be back 8/5-8/12 and can't wait!!! This home is a gem!!!!!"
