Thank you Jeanne & Bill Howard!

The Carolina Cottage was amazing. The cottage was so warm, cozy and super clean. The beach decor was perfect.

We were there for my sons wedding and Jeanne's emails offered friendly advice and suggestions as well as information regarding our stay.

The whole experience was wonderful .

I would highly recommended the Carolina Cottage!!

Just Right!

  • 5 of 5

A clean, cozy and comfortable destination that was just right for our family with four adults, two little ones and a dog. The kids absolutely loved the turtles out back (literally, right out back). Access to the Village Beach Club was sensational and we made the most of it every day, including the picnic on Wednesday night which allowed us to swim and limbo into the evening. I have to say, the entire staff at the Village Beach Club was awesome, including during a wedding we were in town to attend on Thursday night that was held at the club. Access to the ocean was a breeze (whether through the club or otherwise) and the location was perfect and close to so many useful amenities. The owners even were easy to deal with and accommodating. This was our first time to the OBX and would definitely return!

First time to the OBX

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortably furnished and well-designed home that perfectly accommodated our family of five with a dog. Beautiful sunsets and relaxing times on the back deck overlooking a large pond. Great location to explore the Outer Banks in either direction. Easy access to both the sound and ocean. Owners were very easy to work with and provided helpful information regarding the area. We loved it here, and hope to be back in the future.

Perfect Spot. Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We worked out the stay with the home contact Jeanne Howard, who made the check in process very easy. Due to the time of year she was able to move her standard check in time around some to account for our travels. We were coming into town for a wedding in manteo, so this really was the perfect spot for us.

The house has a great deck over looking a little lake in the backyard. We'd feed the turtles out there who seemed quite used to the feedings.

Nothing negative to say about the stay at all. The bed and towels and house were all in perfect shape. The location is right next to a grocery store and some good restaurants. Everything was very convenient. We would definitely stay here again. Between 4 people, the stay saved us a couple hundred dollars over staying at a hotel.

Excellent Vacation Home In Nags Head, NC

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Jeanne & Bill Howard for our stay in their vacation home. The listing description was very accurate - the home was very clean, well-maintained and comfortable! It certainly felt like our "home away from home" - everything was included as mentioned - we didn't do without! Their home is centrally located, with everything within a short distance, including Jockey's Ridge, the Wright Brother's Monument, Manteo, shopping, dining, and especially the beaches! Would highly recommend to all - certainly looking forward to our next stay in 2016!

Thank you Jeanne & Bill Howard!!
