About Tim Burress

I grew up in Chatham, NJ and spent my summers on Long Beach Island in Harvey Cedars. I have lived in Boston, NY, and now Richmond, VA with my two fantastic girls Ava and Grace and our dog Finney.

Tim Burress purchased this house in 2003

Why Tim Burress chose Outer Banks

Running on Faith has been much more than just a house. It has been a blessing, a place of fond memories, and of great joy from all that have shared our home. When a fire took our beloved home 2013 we were devastated but thankful that no one was hurt. Oddly the guests that were there had decided to leave early and we were delayed in our arrival on the eve of the fire. Running on Faith has blessed all that have entered her door. We are thrilled to rebuild her and share our home once again.

What makes this house unique

For nearly 12 years many guests have shared what they love about our home and perhaps it is best expressed by one note I received several years ago that simply said 'Your home is so easy and comforting we just love returning each year' It truly makes me feel grateful to share our home with all of you.

Best Vacation Ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful! All amenities are high quality and like new. Beds were very comfortable. Spacious kitchen with plenty of storage. Beautiful wood flooring. Easy access to the beach. Almost daily visits by the wild horses. We'd never experienced driving on the beach before and loved the ability to load up all of our things and drive right to our "spot". We were happy to learn that ice is available at the local firehouse ($3/bag, typically 3 bag max per family per day). I can honestly say that I cannot think of anything negative to say. The owner was great, the house was great and the whole experience was the best in all of the 10+ years we've been vacationing in the area. It was so hard to leave.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week in a home that was just perfect for us. A large open floor plan allowed all of us to be together and enjoy our time together. When the grandchildren wanted alone time they descended to the den and read or watched programs or played games The pool brought all of us lots of fun and relief from some hot days on the beach. And the beach...amazing Had lots of horse company during the week and a couple of bucks jumping across the yards. This is a week we will never forget!!!

Beautiful place.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation at a beautiful place. We never received the welcome email due to a spam filter issue so we're a little surprised about some things we needed to bring, like toilet paper and beach towels. If we'd known ahead it would have saved us a two hour trip to town to restock. Not the owners fault. The only real complaint was that we were responsible for making all the beds once we got there. After a 20 hour travel day the last thing I wanted to do was spend over an hour making 7 beds. We rent our ski condo in Colorado and would never have imagined asking our guests to make their own beds on arrival. But after some arrival frustrations, we had a truly spectacular vacation. Thank you!

Relaxing beach vacation in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation. Running on Faith is a beautifully updated home right on the beach that accommodated 3 families perfectly. All the "grownups" had their own room and full bathroom which was awesome. Kids share the bunk room and loved it. We were right on the beach which made it easy to go back and forth whenever we wanted. The pool was also nice to take a quick dip in or float around for a bit. Views were amazing from the main living floor and loved sitting on all levels of the deck. One of the best things was dinning table. With such a big group it was to have a family dinner every night where we could all sit together. Tim was awesome. He called the 2nd day to make sure everything was okay and we were happy with the house. Thank you Tim and family for opening your home.
