Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Jeanne! We had a fantastic and relaxing vacation at Carolina Cottage. The location is conveniently located near the beach (plenty of parking), near a supermarket (especially helpful with a one-year old), and close to several restaurants that came highly recommended by local residents. The neighborhood is quiet, clean, safe, and pleasent. We particularly appreciated the quick response to our questions, the cleanliness of Carolina Cottage, and the comforting sense of home while on vacation. Our highest compliments to our hosts and we are absolutely planning on a return visit to Carolina Cottage next year.

Great location, cozy house, well stocked and owner is super responsive. Can’t wait to come back.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience in the Outer Banks, and we couldn’t have been happier. The house is very cozy, and stocked with everything you need. We are more inclined to cook than to eat out, and I was glad to find that I didn’t need almost any of the kitchen equipment that I had brought from home (other than my non-cerrated kitchen knife).

On the cleanliness front, the house was overall well cleaned. I found some wrappers and smaller trash under the beds, and crumbs, goldfish, and a small dog toy (not ours) under the couch cushions. Having said that, though, while the house is pet friendly, and we visited with my dog, there was no hint of dog hair or odor when we arrived, so great job on getting rid of that after a dog stay. I know how hard that can be.

The location was great, with the Food Lion roght around the corner (literally), the turtle pond in the backyard (my son made sure they were well fed), and the golf course paths for laid back strolls. Access to both the pool and the private beach was ideal. There were days where the waves were too high to go in the ocean with the kids, so we just chilled at the pool.

Can’t say this enouh, we had a great vacation, and the house was fantastic. I can’t wait to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your five star review! Summer is a busy season especially on turn around day. I'm sorry that you found items under the beds and sofa cushions. Hopefully we'll do a better job next time. Thank you for letting us know where we can improve. We hope to see you again next year!

Beautiful home with fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year renting from the Howard family! We love this place! It's location is fantastic - both in terms of access to beach and other places to the relaxing spot on the golf course pond. My daughter absolutely loves the turtles!

The house itself is in fantastic condition - it is evident that Jeanne and Bill do not consider this as a rental property - they consider it as their home. We've stayed in the Currituck/Corolla area in the past, but since we've found this home we have no intention of going anywhere else!

Nice, clean and well equipped house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our stay! The house is nice, grocery is walkable as are some shops and restaurants. We drove to the neighborhood pool to enjoy the pool and beach. We also loved the sound at Jockey Ridge when the beach had red flags. The sound pier was also walkable and great for sunsets! The deck was nice to chill and listen to the tree frogs at night .

Clean and Cozy and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a pet friendly house and I was worried. But this house is very well maintained and very well cleaned every week. I was impressed! We have a “hypoallergenic” dog as my kids are allergic to others and no one had any issues here.

The kitchen is compact but very well stocked with everything I needed to cook all week.

Master bedroom king was super comfortable! Best I have ever had in a rental.

Great communication with owner and her staff!

Love the Vllages of Nags Head too!

Thanks for sharing your home, would love to come back again!
