About the Owner

Married on the beach in OBX - Nags Head. Grew up going to the NJ and DE beaches and loved the laid back and less crowded beaches of OBX so much we purchased a home, were married on the beach and spend as much time there as we can.

Great house

  • 5 of 5
My family and I loved our stay in The Red Drum. Great location with easy access to the beach, Jockey's Ridge, great restaurants, and shopping. The house was clean and a great layout. It was good to have a highchair there and lots of space. The view was great too. I could actually see the ocean and the sunrise from my bedroom. It was a wonderful week. Thanks to Bill for all his help and we plan to use his property again. I will recommend this property to others.

An open and inviting layout; great location!

  • 4 of 5
Our group of 2 adults, 4 youth, and 2 children enjoyed our time at Red Drum immensely. The abundant windows provided lovely views and light from both sides. The layout of the house allowed everyone both private space and gathering space. Its location allowed frequent and easy trips to both the beach and Jockey's Ridge, while groceries and activities were only minutes away. (Just don't try to go out for ice cream during Spring Break.)

Bill, the owner, was easy to reach and readily available to answer questions before and during our stay. I would not hesitate to rent from him again. There were some minor maintenance and cleaning issues, but those were due mostly to ours being the first rental of the season. We did not contact the rental company about these during our stay; in hindsight, I wish we had. Even so, the house and amenities were a welcome treat for our families.

I look forward to checking in on Bill's listing for our next vacation in Outer Banks. Thanks, Bill!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our home for your Spring Break stay and for sharing your thoughts. I very much appreciated your e-mail after your stay and have added those minor items to our Spring Maintenance list as we get everything fine-tuned for our season. I do, though, also wish you had called about them while you were staying with us as I would have had them addressed immediately.

Our family has also loved the great proximity to the beach, activities over at Jockey's Ridge and a month's worth of restaurants, shopping and attractions all within a few blocks to a few miles of our home.

We look forward to assisting with your next OBX vacation.

Fun House at a Great Price

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our wonderful family vacation and this house really made it our trip. We wanted a house that could fit our needs, without breaking our wallets. The owner, Bill, was very easy to deal with and went out of his way to answer any questions we had. The house is in great shape and has a ton of space. The 2 King suites with jacuzzi tubs were a huge bonus. This house also comes with several decks to lounge on. With a 2 minute walk to either the beach or Jockey's Ridge, there's always something fun to do. The house is also located minutes for the outlets, grocery stores, and lots of good dining options. This house goes against the saying, "You get what you pay for", we got much more than we paid for.

Owner's Response: Ryan - Glad you and your family enjoyed a great holiday in our beach house. You, also, were a pleasure to deal with, and appreciate all the communication as you prepared for your trip.

Have a fantastic New Years and Prosperous 2015!

Great house and location.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time. Clean and full of amenities most rentals do not include, lots of board games and beach stuff for the family. The kids loved running around Jockey Ridge which is basically across the road, back side of the house. The front has a decent view of the ocean from the sizeable third floor balcony, leading into a wonderful living/ dining/ kitchen open layout. I cannot think of any negative comments about the house or its location. Thanks Bill and Steph.

Owner's Response: Jason - thanks again for choosing our home for your family vacation. We have always enjoyed watching the hang gliders going off the Eastern side of Jockey's Ridge and both Steph and I have done it several times ourselves.

We hope you have a great Fall & Winter and keep us in mind for future stays in OBX.

Owner's Response: We are very glad that you and your family had a great vacation in our home. When we stay we are generally traveling with both small children and grandparents (sometimes great grandparents) and have tried to incorporate everything that we would like when we travel into the amenities in our OBX home for our guests.

Thanks again for staying with us and we look forward to your 2015 visit.

From the Owner

Primary consideration was the very easy access to the Beach. Great Beach views and Jockey's Ridge views (we can watch them hang glide from the dune on our back decks and in the kitchen). Loved the layout of the house including every bedroom (except one) having private access to one of the 4 decks and every bedroom having private access to a bathroom. A captain's watch loft was a must and our home has one with an oversized reading chair that is the seat that everyone calls 'dibs' on.
