  • Rich was very friendly by phone. Seemed to be out of the area when we were there, but that was not a problem. The property was very clean and comfortable and ample space for our family of six. For the price, we will definitely consider using again.

    This was our first time to the Outer Banks, and we loved it! For younger kids we recommend swimming on the Sound side, down at Jockey Ridge State Park.

    Keep in mind the $75 cleaning fee.

  • We enjoyed our 3rd return trip to this great canalfront home! Very peaceful and nice accomodations. Our family loves being out in Colington for the great sound, pool, and canal perks but close to the hustle of OBX. Thanks Rich for another great vacation!

  • My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Rich's place (June 2014). As noted by other reviewers, the space was clean, welcoming, and on a pretty spot of the canal. My son especially loved the breakfast goodies, we liked fishing and crabbing off the dock, and appreciated the quiet and privacy of the location. We used the washer and dryer and took beach chairs and towels to the beach; so all in all it had everything that we needed. We never visited the private salt water pool; we were too busy with all the other fun stuff to do!

    Although Rich wasn't actually on site during our stay, we had several phone calls before and after; and that communication was really helpful.

    We would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Rich.

  • Our stay was very nice (we were 4). The waterfront view was great (even with the cold weather), we could have a good Thanksgiving dinner (the kitchen is well equiped), and discover very easily the Outer Banks from there. Rich also provide us with a lot of informations about the area. An overall good experience!

  • We had a great stay at Rich's home. Being able to see the water right in the backyard made the weekend very relaxing! His home was cozy, clean, and a perfect size for our group of 4 with 2 dogs. We'd love to stay here again if we go back to the OBX!

  • The house was perfect for a Labor Day Weekend beach trip. It was great relaxing on the screened-in porch overlooking the canal and the house had everything we needed (email hidden), entertainment, and unwinding after the beach. Especially loved the outdoor shower! We arrived around 2:00 am and were able to check in without any issues which was much appreciated. We hope to return to OBX soon!

  • In spite of the many positive reviews, we were still amazed at how wonderful this house was. The six of us (two adults, two big boys, a toddler and a big dog) enjoyed our trip immensely. Rich was the consummate host, stocking the fridge and kitchen with many welcome goodies, including fresh coffee, cream, fruit, and pastries, and was always ready to help or provide information/advice. The location was perfect (milepost 8.5, at the Wright Brothers Memorial road access), with all our favorite OBX spots (Duck Donuts, Slice, Kill Devil's Frozen Custard, Mama Kwan's) within just a short drive to the main highway. The ocean-side beach access was ideal (ample parking and showers to clear the sand before you drive back). The pool, dog beach, and sound-side beach were also enjoyable. Finally, what made our vacation unforgettable was the fishing we could enjoy on the canal at the back of the house. We spent hours relaxing at the back, using Rich's fishing poles and crab traps, and were always rewarded with plenty of seafood bounty. We also used the paddle boat, the swing, and spent every morning sipping coffee and donuts at the covered backporch and savoring the time we could enjoy as a family in this warm home. The one thing we wish we had done more of was ride the $5 go carts. We only went once this past trip but will certainly do so more often the next time we return and stay at Rich's.

  • We had such a great vacation here! Rich was great and the property was as described. SPOTLESSLY clean! Some of the previous reviewers mentioned that it's a bit outdated, but for the price you cannot beat it! A few things to be aware of: 1- it's about a 4 mile curvy drive from the main street back to the house, 2- you cannot walk to the sound beach or pool, it's well over a mile. 3- there isn't a dishwasher. We'd definitely stay here again, these are not deal-breakers. Just want to let you know!
    We are back now, tan and relaxed and with wonderful memories!

    Response from Rich:

    Road is projected to be widened with bike paths in 2014 and a dishwasher is being installed at the end of the 2013 season(we add on as we go). Thanks again for the wonderful review..Rich

  • We had a great time and Rich was helpful and available for any questions or needs. The house is simple and basic - just right for a vacation getaway. It was very nice to have kayaks for our use, with access from the dock behind the house. The community pool and beach are a short drive away. The house is in a residential area, away from the tourist strip, but still quite accessible to all that the area has to offer. If you are looking for a no frills place to relax, this is perfect.
