A Lotta Love for Lively Up Yourself

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at this beautiful house, and this visit was even better than the first! Love all the updates to the inside of the house and the new layout of the backyard (hello, hottub!) The house is comfortable for children and adults alike. Thank you, Cindi and John!

Perfect Beach Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great stay with my daughter and grandchildren! The cottage is so darling and so close to everything including a 5 minute walk to the beach! Because of this excellent location you have no traffic to deal with, a huge plus! Thanks Cindy and John for a wonderful chance to get our children together. We would definitely come again.

Charming, comfortable home with easy access to the beach, centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

The photos of 'Lively Up Yourself' do not do it justice - it is everything you see and more: beautifully maintained and decorated, comfortable, and clean. Lots of cozy spaces to sit and relax, converse, sip coffee - or cocktails, and the hot tub and outdoor shower are divine! This was our first visit to OBX, and the location of this home was perfect for exploring the sites and activities - we ventured north to Corolla and south to Hatteras Light, and everywhere in between. And, it's just a five minute walk to the beach - perfect!

Cindi was a gracious and helpful host, and we will definitely consider renting again when we return to OBX!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, well-kept, precious home. It is very convenient to attractions, stores, and restaurants. The owners are fantastic people to work with. I would recommend the renters' insurance policy, just in case. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Outer Banks area, choose this one!

Perfect couple getaway

  • 5 of 5

We left our girls with Grandma and enjoyed a much needed trip to OBX. The location was perfect; close to everything and somehow hidden. The walk to the beach was easy, and the walk to the hot tub was easier. The home was clean and well decorated. Everything worked and we had no issues. It was a great place to relax and do nothing and perfect to use as a launchpad to go do anything. Great for 2 or a family of 4 to 6.

Lively up Yourself

  • 5 of 5

Lively up Yourself was the perfect vacation location in the outer banks! For my first time to OBX, this was absolutely a wonderful place! So cute and quaint, lots of bright colors, felt truly like a home away from home. It was within a very short walk to the beach and a close walk to a great little place, Bonzer's Shack! Excellent food and drinks there. I would definitely come back for my next visit to OBX. Thanks for everything!
