We loved staying at Anne's! The house was exactly as described. We had a great time both at the beach and the sound. Everything we needed was provided in the house and then some. Anne was great to convey all the information we needed and was really helpful. It was a great vacation!

We had guests from VRBO who caused significant damage. Holes in wall and pool fence, started a fire by the pool, bad damage from smoking to sofa, urine on mattress that need to be thrown out. We need to close and regroup. We are on an island and it takes a while to get people in to work. After a negative review from some of the damages we decided it's best to close until we can properly do everything. Look forward to seeing you all next season.
A diamond in the sand. Wonderful home, with all the bells and whistles, including spectacular hosts.
Anne and her son Gabe took considerable time to show use things about the home, turned us on to how to use a paddle borad, and wii. In the 4 days, we didn’t have time to use everything they made available. Cannot say enough good things about these two or their home. It was like visiting friends.
Anne fixed breakfast every morning. Including scrambled eggs juice coffee. Upon learning of my addiction to ham went out and served ham rolls one morning!
Highly recommend this place for a visit to the OBX. Thanks Anne and Gable – you rock!.
We had a great time staying at Sea La Vie, and Anne was a wonderful host! Anne and her son were very helpful in providing suggestions on things to do and places to see in the area. The B & B is only blocks away from the beach, you can't get any better than that. We loved the amenities at the B & B which included kayaks, fishing rods, pool, hot tub, hammocks, bikes and beach supplies (chairs, flip flops, ect!) Anne had small breakfast foods prepared in the morning and was around to give us helpful advice about ferry traffic, fishing spots and grocery stores when we needed it. The rooms we stayed in were beautifully styled and well kept, and we were lucky to add an additional night to our stay. Anne was an excellent host and I would definitely rent from Sea La Vie again!
The host canceled this reservation 69 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Anna and her husband are very nice. They were there to meet us and give us some useful information about the house and the Cape.
The house is very functional and well located.
The carpet was replaced 2 weeks after your stay as we mentioned We are glad it was not replaced prior as the kids in your group left lots and lots of sand everywhere. The house cleaner said she got 5 vac bags of sand from the carpets and burned her motor up. That black Tar Heel sand destroys the rugs when people do not rinse feet and shower before going in! You are certainly right, the carpet was a mess; thus the discounted price for your group. 3 sofas were steam cleaned the very day you arrived.
Other than the fact we had a wisk not a mixer the kitchen is fully equipped: rice cooker, bamboo steamers, two blenders glass not plastic dishes, everything anyone has needed in 7 years. (except that mixer you wanted:) I wish you would say what "stuff" it needs so I can consider it.
Sea La Vie was such a wonderful house for our vacation. We had 3 families staying here (total of 11 people) and there was still extra beds available. Our kids enjoyed the beach each morning and the pool in the afternoons. We also walked to the pier just a block away to watch all the crabs on the sound side. The hot tub was great for all the adults at night once the kids were in bed and there was an abundance of toys for everyone to enjoy (kayak, paddle board, bicycles, boogie boards, beach chairs). The Market Deli was just a quick 2 minute drive from the house so we could pick up any groceries we needed (and it was actually reasonable on prices). They also had great sandwiches and burritos! We took advantage of a Jet ski rental just a quick trip down the road as well. All of Anne's recommendations for restaurants were spot on. Our favorite was Waterman's where there was a great selection of different dishes and there was even live music. There was also lots of people there so it was a fun time for everyone! Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful place for us to stay for our vacation!
About the Host, Anne
I live in Richmond VA, but I am a native Oklahoma girl. We recently purchased a home in the beautiful Outer Banks, my dream of 30 years. My son and I are running the place we call Sea La Vie as a B&B part time and other times the entire place is available for rent. You can save by renting an entire floor. I used to dream of renting one of those giant beautiful houses but my family is small so did not need a big house for a week at the beach. So, I am renting individual rooms or entire floors of our house. I spent 4 years in Hong Kong, Studied special ed at OU and Wilmington College. I worked at VCU med school before moving to Hong Kong . The job market being terrible, my son was unemployed and he and I decided to do this. After all, we have always heard "do something you love" and we love people and love the Outer Banks... So we are giving it a shot... We would love to hear from you. We are filling up quickly so book soon.
We are very casual, get a lot of Med school students from East Carolinia, and grad students as well as outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. People love that you can try kayaks, SUPS, biking and fishing without bringing or renting equipment. Small families who do not need a big house like this arrangment and like renting their own floor.
Five things I can't live without as airbnb has suggested we list: A good book, my cell phone, a current playlist that includes Avett Brothers, Wilco and Arcade Fire, Mojito ingredients and my favorite beach chair, I guess. Actually, I have lived easily without any of those things but they are things that make me happy.
