Super easy booking, Jay was a great host...good communication
I was traveling to the Rodanthe and Avon area for a wedding that I was doing hair and makeup for and needed a nice place to stay. For the affordability of this cottage you can not beat it! Jay was absolutely wonderful to work with and just a quick text away if you needed anything! He even allowed us to check in early! Driving all night from Ohio, that was music to our ears! We did had a little trouble opening the lock box, but we were able to open it with a little bit of finessing! The beds were a little on the more firm side, that took a little adjusting to. Location is great! It was easier to drive to the pier and park to get to the beach! But a little warning about the volunteer fire department right next door... they sound the emergency alert sirens to notify their 1st responders to come to the station. My dad was a firefighter when I was growing up, so my head knew what was going on, but if there was a fly on the wall it would have had the best laugh of its life.... I thought the world was ending 😂😂other than that, it was a PERFECT stay!! Thank you Jay!
Jay very responsive kind and professional. house had many extras in terms of supplies. Well equipped kitchen. Quiet neighborhood. Less than a block to fish market. Discovered nearby Island Bakery….an amazing place that should nit be missed.
Nice house in Avon with a large kitchen and two grills. Fairly short walk to the ocean (8-10 minutes). Appreciated that it’s pet friendly. Had a nice stay!
I would love to stay here again. The house was very clean and extremely nice. The owner has thought of everything. There is a great selection of movies and games. The location is great. We were very happy!!!
Five of us spent a girls weekend at the house. We loved the layout! We were fortunate enough to have fantastic weather, so we did not spend much time inside the home. The only downside to the house that I can come up with is the lack of mirrors in the bedrooms. It was very difficult for five women and only three mirrors- one in each bathroom and one in the hall. As someone mentioned in a different post- the mattresses are very firm - so if you want a softer feel I’d suggest you bring a mattress topper with you. The location is great! Close to a bunch of stuff- but it’s in a quiet area. There was a small problem with the a/c but we let Jay know right away and he had the AC guy out early the next morning! You really can’t go wrong with this rental! We would definitely book it again.
Had a great long weekend stay for our anniversary. Very comfortable and well equipped home in a quiet neighborhood. Within walking distance of great food, very close to the beach and sound. Jay was very responsive to any questions we had. Wonderful stay, definitely recommend!
Laid back, comfortable home on a quiet street tucked away among lovely junipers. Spotlessly clean. Perfect for a couple of surfers with two dogs. Location was convenient to both Avon Pier and Frisco beaches allowing us to maximize surfing depending on wind and swell direction. We loved the outdoor shower, full amenities, quiet beaches and walking daily to the Sunrise seafood market.
A wonderful, cozy home close to the beach. We loved the extra amenities- the grill, hammocks, outdoor shower, tons of games, and a fully stocked kitchen. The home is in a quieter area which was lovely. Our pup loved lounging on the deck in the sun, and we enjoyed the easy 5 minute walk to the beach. Highly recommend!
Me and four friends came down to fish, had a great time. House was clean and nice, enjoyed outdoor shower with hot water. And under house with grill and hammocks.
Great pet friendly property for OBX vacation. Good location with easy walk to coffee shop and restaurants. Property was well maintained, stocked and clean!! Love the outdoor shower. And Jay was quick to answer any questions. The beds are very firm, so recommend bringing a mattress pad if you prefer softer bed.
Great long weekend getaway over Easter. We wanted to make a big dinner and the house had all the kitchen items we needed. It was also nice to be able to bring our dogs with us. Fast responses from the host. 1/2 mile walk or bike ride to the beach. Highly recommend this stay.
It was cozy, relaxing and very close to the beach and shopping. Had a restful time.
Was a great house size and location for me and my husband and 2 dogs. Had everything we needed for our stay
This was a very clean, well-stocked home. It was very comfortable and perfect for our vacation. Jay was an excellent host. He provided a restaurant recommendation and even let us check in early. We would definitely rent this home again.
We were in town for a surf competition and wanted a little extra room for the weekend. Great house In a central location that makes a perfect spot to stay when exploring the southern Outer Banks. I have never stayed in such a well equipped VRBO- it had absolutely everything that we needed- including a fully loaded kitchen, extra blankets and towels) for the weekend. The beds are a tad small, so if your significant other is 6’2” and built like a linebacker, you might want to plan on sleeping in separate beds. 😊� Other than that, it’s perfect for a weekend at the beach. The outdoor shower has hot water, which makes it easy to clean up from the beach, especially with kids. Relaxing decks, hammocks, great grill space, quiet neighborhood, close to stores and restaurants- really it’s all you need to enjoy a beach vacation. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
This property had everything we needed. We loved the outdoor space with seating and deck space. Perfect size for 6 adults. There's also a wide array of movies and games if you happen to experience a rainy day like we did. This property is close enough to the beach and restaurants for entertainment.
We enjoyed our stay. The place is easy to find and clean.
I had been going to the outer banks for most summers of my childhood and I was so glad to be back and share with my children. Jay was wonderful, helpful and responsive to all of my questions. We even got to check in earlier than the check in time. It was the perfect stay for us. Thank you so much Jay! and Kevin.
The house was wonderful, our stay was fantastic. We had a great time, will definitely book through VRBO again.
Very nice place to stay with children and pets. Because of COVID-19 we wanted a quiet comfortable place to stay. The owner keeps his house well stocked with the comforts of home. When we did leave home all we had to do was close all the doors which confined the dogs to the hallway and kitchen. The outdoor shower was an added bonus as well as the hammocks and chill space under the house. We found lots of games and DVDs for after dinner enjoyment. Sunrise Seafood is about a minute away and they sell outstanding seafood plus a few extras to make your meal really special.
Will definitely be coming again! House in a quiet neighborhood, includes all amenities. You can either walk to the beach or drive either to the ocean beach or sound side. Great fish market just seconds away and plenty of restaurants to order takeout. Great communications! We enjoyed our stay! Thank you.
It’s a great house plenty of room for our family. Our older kids loved the hammock place under the house & enjoyed the board games! Thanks so much for sharing your home!
We had a wonderful time on this vacation. One of the best!! The owner was very accommodating and bent over backwards to help us!! The home had games for us to play in the evening! I would rent from him again!!
Extremely clean, family and pet friendly cottage. We used the BBQ and hammocks and outside patio/balcony everyday, highly recommend this cottage.
I just wanted a place for 5. 4 adults and 1 child. This house and location was perfect! Very quick access to the Avon pier, restaurants, and the Food Lion is only 5 minutes away. It was only a 10 minute drive to Buxton for some apple uglies from Orange Blossom Cafe. This felt like a very traditional beach house. Very clean and very simple. The owner Jay was very quick to respond with any requests we had. Thanks again!!
Property owner was easy to deal with and very responsive. Place was comfortable and we liked it was close enough to restaurants, groceries, gas, beach access but not too close to make it loud or busy. Lots of games, dvds, good internet speed. We liked walking down to the end of the street and watching sunset at the sound, then seeing sunrise at the Avon Pier (even saw a deer on the dunes)! It was perfect for a peaceful getaway. Only negative- mosquitoes were bad even with local OBX bug spray so we could not sit out on the decks, but that’s not something anyone can control. Would rent the place again.
The property was very clean, and beds are comfortable. Jay provides linens, there's a large screen TV, board games, etc. The kitchen had almost all the pots, pans, and cooking utensils. There were nice bowls, plates, dishes, and utensils. There is a picture of a beach cart, but I will just add that there was beach chairs and a cooler in the utility room as well.
The house accommodated our family, consisting of two small children and a dog, wonderfully. The bedrooms were clean and cosy. With comfortable beds and plenty of storage. There was clear effort to make the renter feel at home. The house was equipped with entertainment with for kids and adults. Such as novels, dvds, and board games. We were pleasantly surprised by all the games for our kids. The kitchen was also well equipped. And we appreciated all the available towels and linens. We particularly loved the outdoor shower. We found the town of Avon to be perfectly our speed. It was not as commercialized as the northern outer banks, yet we were a quick bike ride to anything we needed. We frequented restaurants, ice cream, and shops...with many convenient trips to the food lion. We will be back again!
We had a great time. The house was wonderful it had everything that we needed for our vacation. There were puzzles, books, movies that we could watch and games to play in the house . The surrounding area was quiet and close to the beach.
We loved the location and amenities of the house. Everything worked as described and there were even a few pleasant surprises. I would recommend it to a friend or stay there again if I return to Outer Banks.
Enjoyed our stay very much. House was spotless and very reasonably priced. Such a quiet and nice neighborhood. The location could not have been better. Everything we needed was only a few minutes away. Jay was excellent to deal and we look forward to returning. We highly recommend this property!!!
The house was so clean and completely stocked with the little extras that we didn’t have to purchase while we stayed there. There was more then enough space for my husband, 3 children and our dog. Everything was on one level which made it nice. The hammocks were so comfy. We would definitely stay again.
We really enjoyed our stay in Avon. The house was very accommodating. The only thing I could recommend for improvement would be the mattresses were hard.
Pet friendly location was wonderful for our stay. Basic amenities but served well for OBX stay. Highly recommend and will return! Owner does not overload with unneeded charges.
Nice house, just a short walk to the beach - and the house has a beach cart which is a life saver when it comes to carrying coolers.
Very clean and very comfortable from the deck's to the bedrooms and bathrooms. Kitchen equiped with new stove, microwave with plently of room for six to sit and eat in kitchen. Overall had a great time - except the fish were just hitting, maybe next trip.
We could not get the TV to work and it could have been something we were not doing However, we had stopped at a store before going to the house and was told the TV reception was not good in the area. We are used to having news and what is happening within a few minutes or an hr. Over all we enjoyed!
Beautiful home! Jay was very responsive and helped us with last minute questions. We very much enjoyed staying there. It was a great area for our 2 year old and dog. We loved how quiet it was too. Loved the selection of games and DVDs! We will definitely be back.
A very pleasant stay. The rooms are nicely decorated, the kitchen is well organized and the heating and AC work very well. The only negative experience was some trouble with the TV. We couldn't watch cable TV, and we couldn't get the internet TV channels to work. So we watched a dvd instead. The landlord was very responsive to our complaint and followed up on the issue.
My wife and I along with our two kids and lab had a fun stay at Jay’s house. The home is spacious and well maintained. Avon is a good spot for a laid back beach trip.
Great beach place in a quiet side of Avon. Well stocked kitchen with good appliances. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. We would like to return.
Extremely clean house. Nice modern kitchen appliances, even a gas stove. Kitchen was supplied with necessities. Wonderful outside shower. Close proximity to a wonderful seafood shop and local stores.
We arrived to a clean welcoming home. The huge movie collection came in handy when we had rain and flooding for three days! The fully equipped kitchen helped when we needed to eat in. The owner was immediately responsive to any questions we had and left plenty of information for local beaches and swimming holes. We had a fun, relaxing week!
The house is cute, comfortable, and clean. It was well stocked with every kitchen gadget, beach item, towels etc you will need for your stay. While we were there we met jay the owner, he was very welcoming and offered plenty of local tips for our family. Our family had a relaxing stay!
It was just wonderful to get away. Loved that linens were provided, beds were made, just felt like home away from home. We have family living in Avon, so we liked that we could be close to them too.
We really enjoyed the house and it’s location. Great size house without being too big and too many stairs; perfect location for access to the beach, shopping, and dining.
Property had tons of small extras such as movies, utensils, games. Owner was very responsive. Perfect size property. Great location! We look forward to our next stay.
Enjoyed our stay very much. Good central location to ramps for ORVs. Drum were running at the point. Couldn't ask for much more. This place will be top of the list when booking our return visit. RK
Our family of 4 and our 2 old english pups stayed at Jay's house in September and absolutely loved it. The house is centrally located, a short walk to the beach, surf shops, restaurants and less than a 5 minute drive from a full service grocery store. The house itself is clean and very comfortable with all the amenities including an outdoor shower which was excellent after a day at the beach. Our kids are both kiteboarders and surfers and within a very short drive you can find some of the best kiting in the Outer Banks. When we were there there was only one day of decent kiting wind but that's mother nature however the kids just opted for surfing while my wife and I and the pups enjoyed the beach. Jay was excellent to deal with, would respond asap to emails and our security deposit was returned within the first week of returning home. Thanks again Jay! We'll definitely recommend your place to family and friends.
Our family of 4 stayed at this lovely house for one week and we had a blast. Definitely felt like at home, the kitchen was very well stocked, a great variety of books, DVD's and games let you relax and enjoy the family time. The porch that allowed to sit outside with a cup of coffee in the morning to feel the breeze or with a glass of wine in the evening to star gaze the beautiful milky sky - Priceless! Not to mention about the outdoor shower, kids loved it, so did we. Perfect location, just a short walk to the beach with the playground on the way. Close to the restaurants, Avon pier and Food Lion (grocery store). We got spoiled! :) Jay (the owner) is very responsive and taking care of tenants, easy to work with. Highly recommend this house for the beach vacation. Thank you, Jay!!!
This was our first visit to the outer banks. The house is in a great location. The house is well stocked with games,movies, books,and everything you need for cooking. Jay was very easy to work with and returned our security deposit the next week. I would highly recommend this property for anyone interest in going to the outer banks. It is in a good location for visiting all the major attractions or for just relaxing on the beach. Will be the first place I call the next time we plan to head to the outer banks.
Great house, clean and well taken care of. The kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil you can think of. It has everything you have at home! The outdoor shower is great and got more use then the ones inside. Beds are comfortable. AC works good, it was unbelievably hot during our stay, so we appreciated this feature. There's a fantastic seafood market on the corner that sells amazing steamed shrimp and key lime pie. My family and dog thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay in the outer banks. Lastly Jay was amazing to deal with, prompt in replying to emails and just overall a nice guy.
My husband, daughter, and I stayed at Jay's house for our first family vacation. The transaction for the rental was easy and quick. The house is a short bike ride from the Avon pier and close to all the other local attractions. The kitchen was very well stocked, and we used it often to prepare our meals. We also enjoyed the array of books, board games, and DVDs after our daughter went to bed. I would highly recommend this house to anyone in the market for an affordable and quality vacation home.
Obx is a beautiful vacation spot, beach town but quiet with all the amenities. We were very blessed with our stay. The location is ideal, coffee shop around the corner, food lion 1 mile away, restaurants nearby. The house was spotless and delivered on what it promised. I enjoyed the deck in the morning & outside shower in the evenings and everything in between! Thank you Jay!!
This house was perfect. My husband and I were part of a group of researchers with UNC, doing work out of Hatteras for the week. Since my husband and I had to come down from NJ, we decided to bring the whole family (two dogs, Grandparents, and a toddler). Throw in a couple scientists and you've got quite the group. Regardless, there was plenty of space for everyone. While the house is cozy, no one ever felt cramped. This rental is definitely well equipped, from the kitchen (which is nice and big) to the entertainment/living room, providing all the comforts of home. While my husband and I had to spend long days out on the water, we looked forward to having such a comfortable, clean home to return to. The outdoor shower being a definite bonus. My folks, on the other hand, had a wonderful time entertaining their granddaughter. The house was very child friendly and conveniently located for trips to the beach and other sightseeing activities. Furthermore, after having a lot of experience traveling with dogs, I can say that it is not easy to find places even remotely as nice this one that accept dogs. We will definitely keep this one on our list.
Stayed ten days this April and enjoyed every minute. House is a recently remodeled older home that is well cared for, comfortable, nicely appointed, and well furnished with new appliances and great TV and offers an extensive library (movies, games, books) for those inevitable rainy days. Kitchen is very well equipped. Loved the gas range- a first in thirty years going to Hatteras. Location in old Avon village provides for great dog walking and is close to everything. Having the outside shower on top deck is unusual and really convenient. Jay (the owner) is very responsive and easy to work with. I would definitely stay here again.
This house was perfect for us and the dogs! We loved loved the outdoor shower, so much that we never used the showers indoors. Close to the beach and several cute restaurants. We enjoyed our evening walks with the dogs and the two porches were great for relaxing with the pups and people watching. The kitchen is very well equipped more so than any other rental I have been to. Jay was super laid back and easy to work with, we received our damage deposit back in a very timely manner. We did spend two days venturing out to other areas around the Outter Banks and both times we wondered why we ever left the Avon area, it is a quieter area without all the traffic and hustle and bustle we found in the busier areas. We were a little surprised to arrive and find a note that there is an owners suite beneath the house that may or may not be occupied. That being said if we ever rent a house in the Outter banks area we would rent this one again!
We stayed one week at this house and enjoyed each minute of our vacation. The house is as advertised, very well equipped and nicely decorated. It feels like the home away from home, a great beach house. It is located in quiet Avon, close to the beach and the Pier- just a 15 minute walk. From here one can explore by car the entire OBX area- the drive to Corolla one of the farthest towns is only about 1 1/2 hours. Another plus- we had the opportunity to bring our little Westie with us. There are a lot of places near the house where we walked the dog and explored this quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the patio in the mornings and the afternoons and the outdoor shower was excellent after a day spent on the beach. The communication with Jay was prompt and friendly. Thanks for the wonderful vacation. I would recommend this property to any friend.
Highly recommend this rental. Our family of 4 plus our boxer puppy stayed here and it was wonderful. Many local places to eat w/in walking distance. Playground close by was great for our 8 year old as well as the bike rental place directly across Highway 12. We choose to drive to the beach everyday and this worked just find for us. Clean home and the owner is great to work with!
Our family of 4 stayed at this house for a beach vacation and we couldn't have been more pleased. The house provided everything we needed and it really felt like home all week. The location is terrific within a short walk of the beach as well as several local restaurants. There is also a playground just around the corner that our kids really enjoyed. We have nothing but good things to say about our stay at this house and our visit to Avon!
Our family (4) plus one set of grandparents stayed at the house just recently and we had a great time. We all loved the house and were amazed that it provided so many things from board games, books, DVD's, washer/dryer ( which we needed a few times). We also enjoyed the outside porch ( espcially for morning coffee and early evening drinks) and for our kids the outdoor shower was the hit. We brought everything with us for the kitchen and discovered that the kitchen was stocked with everything you need (even children forkes and cups)- amazing! The location of the house is in a nice and quiet neighbourhood and walking distance to the Avon Pier and to restaurants, stores etc. We will definitely come back soon as we all had a great time.
Our family really enjoyed our stay here. The porch is fabulous for morning coffee and we enjoyed the outdoor shower, A/C after a long day, washer and dryer, and fully stocked kitchen. We didn't realize there was no cable, which I didn't mind, but apparently others with me were really interested in the NBA finals. There are lots of DVDs, games, and puzzles in the house. The internet speed is great, and especially helpful if you want to enjoy Netflix on their Blueray player. We had a problem with water pressure/hot water at the beginning of our week stay, and even though the owner is not a local, he was able to have the issue fixed the next morning after we called to let him know what something was amiss.
Our family (of 4) stayed here twice is less that a year. We love it. Feels like home. We found the neighborhood to be nice and quiet and the location gives us quick access to all things in Avon.
Clean, cute, well stocked kitchen and nice to have washer/dryer.
Very nice rental, is as exactly stated. Great selection of movies for popcorn night! 5 minutes from beach access, grocery stores, restaurants. Updated appliances, very pretty rooms and decor. The owner was just a phone call away at any time. Not too crowded and perfect place for pets. Would definitely stay here again.
This is one of the nicest rentals I have stayed in. It's very much like staying in someones home. It's very well stocked and was updated very nicely. The location was also great, especially if you have dogs. Avon is very dog friendly and much less crowded than places farther north. I would not hesitate to stay at this cottage again.
This property was accurately described by owner, it was well maintain and spacious and was ideal for our stay with two dogs. The owner was easy to contact and was very hospitable. Great updated appliances and a very nice grill with two decks, the property provided a to be a great place to relax after spending our days at the beach. The only drawback is that there is not any sound access within walking distance. There is beach access within a few blocks, but we opted to drive to the many beaches close by that allow driving on the beach. Again this was a great place and its location was key for us. Short drive to may beaches in Avon as well as Buxton, Frisco and north to Rodanthe. The fish market is in walking distance and is excellent and there were a few great restaurants also within a few blocks. We recommend Ketch 55 and Pangea.
Having never been to the Outer Banks, we picked this place based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! The house was in a perfect location--close walk to a great beach and within walking distance to grocery stores and a few shops while still feeling secluded. The house was very comfortable, updated, and well decorated. The owner was great and always available with any questions. I would definitely recommend it!
The home provided the perfect blend of cozy family space and privacy for individual members. The home was well maintained, and the owner very helpful.
Beautifully furnished & well kept home. WiFi and a good selection of DVD movies & games to choose from. Outdoor decks & shower are nice. We rode the bikes around town and used the beach chairs at the ocean pier about ten minutes away. The neighbors are very friendly and the area is dog friendly. There is a place to fish & buy seafood just down the road. We had a really nice time in the OBX.
The cottage was perfect! The owner was very pleasant, friendly and made the process to reserve very easy. The cottage is nicely decorated (just how it shows on the pictures). It has all the necessary appliances including washer and dryer. We especially loved the Flat TV with all the available DVDs when encountering rainy days. Walking distance to the WINGS store, Food Lion and restaurants. I highly recommend the beach cottage and would go back again! THANK YOU Jay!
We enjoyed our stay - the big kitchen with any kind of equipment you would need, the pretty colours on the walls and the alligator on the stairs ;o). If we could, we would be back very soon....
