    An excellent and comfortable stay in an amazing location!

    I traveled to Avon with my partner and two dogs in mid-May 2021. The trip was amazing and we were very happy with the house. The kitchen was incredibly well-stocked and easy to cook in. The bathrooms were very clean, spacious and floors & vanities seemed new. I liked that the bedrooms were all on the 2nd floor and the living room/kitchen was on the 3rd. Lots of stairs lol so the first grocery run & unpacking was a lot of climbing! But that's how the houses go here! There's a gate at the top of the stairs of the living room/kitchen, so we could keep the dogs upstairs with us which was great! I worked from the house for a few days and experienced no issues with the wifi. Air conditioning was cold and fans in the bedrooms were great! Loved the screen in porch off the living room, but the picnic table has seen better days, that was a little yuck and not comfortable for sitting out there for too long. The hot tub was great, in good working order. The couch upstairs was a bit dirty, the fabric is visibly discolored. But we didn't mind! The location is the best part. On a quiet street, in a beautiful neighborhood and a 5 minute walk to the beach with a cute wooden walk way over the pond and easy access to a marked cross walk across highway 12. Public beach access was everywhere and clearly marked. The house is also walkable to a cute area of shops & restaurants. We walked to Pangea and LOVED it. Would love to stay again and would totally recommend it to others, especially travelers with pups. THANK YOU!

    We really loved staying at the Seaside Serenity house in Avon. We were there for the last two weeks and it was absolutely perfect! Steve’s house is in a great location inside Kinakeet Shores, only a few quick turns from Rt 12 and the Food Lion grocery store. The house layout is great, lots of room for our cars, outdoor shower and rinsing setup. The first main floor has 4 bedrooms, a huge deck and hot tub is off the two “adult” rooms. And the top floor has a spacious living room, dining room, kitchen, game area and wraparound decks. We really loved the crows nest deck way up top, gorgeous views of the sunsets. Only a few short minutes from Kite Point, too. We had such a great time, really enjoyed the peaceful quiet of the spring season and Avon/Hatteras island is always a beautiful getaway. Steve was very communicative, responsive and helpful. The entire booking and check in/out process was super easy. Can’t wait to return and would stay in this house again! Loved it!

    This place was a good value for the price. The hot tub was great, the kitchen was well-stocked. The only issue was the place could have been cleaner. The owner did offer to get someone in to clean some of the trouble spots when I complained but because of COVID-19, we opted to do cleaning ourselves. Overall, we'd stay here again.

    We had a wonderful time. The home was perfect for our family. The WiFi was plenty strong enough to support the kids school away from home. The house was very clean and had great views. The location is just perfect for bike riding, hitting the beach then jumping in the hot tub. Thanks a lot, we will be back when we can. Dave and Jen

    We had a great time here! The kitchen was well stocked with all the pots and pans you could need, a full (SHARP!) knife set, pitchers for drinks, lots of silverware. The house was clean, AC was cold, beds were comfortable. It was our first time renting a house with a hot tub and now we can't go back! The only downside I can think of is that the first floor is up a full flight of stairs, so it isn't accessible for anyone with mobility issues. We love that the house is dog friendly and had baby gates that also work for keeping dogs to certain areas of the house. The pool and beach are both an easy walk away.

    Fun in the sun.

    When we arrived we had been given perfect directions on finding the house. We were blessed to be in a neighborhood that was close to beaches, the sound, and everything we wanted. Due to Covid 19 we were a bit concerned about the cleaning prep before we arrived. The owner answered all questions by right away by email. When we arrived we found the home to be clean as a whistle, everything clean and ready for our visit. The hot tub was fantastic and we all enjoyed it. A great way to end each day. THe neighborhood type setting was perfect for riding our bikes. THe multi decks were wonderful for relaxing on, getting some sun, and getting a birds eye view of the neighborhood. We could also see a bit of the sound and the ocean too. The bedrooms were roomy , had PLENTY of space for our clothes. THe bathrooms were nice and handled our family perfectly. Our 2 grandsons went with us and they also said it was the best house ever. WE felt right at home in Kinakeet Shores. The foosball table was a hit and so was the game area. We had Uno card nights many evenings. I also (Grandma) learned how to play Foosball. The kitchen was roomy and equipped very well. I could not have asked for a better kitchen. It did not lack for nothing. THe laundry room helped with keeping beach towels clean and dry as well as other items. Very nice washer and dryer. Overall this has is a 10. We would LOVE to come back and stay again this summer and our Grandsons totally agree. WIll be in touch. THanks for your beautiful home. It helped give us peace and serenity; and FUN during a stressful Covid 19 time. Thanks again. We WILL be in touch about renting again this summer.

    Everything was great! The walk to the beach was easy and the owner was very friendly and responded.

    Very nice home. Suited our group of five adults well. Owner gave us advice for where to go kiteboarding. Outdoor shower was very nice. A few glitches, some of which were corrected, others which seem could be adjusted: a) With only 3 bathrooms, at least leaving handtowels would be nice. (Home comes without towels, unless you want to pay extra or bring your own). b) It would also help to leave liquid handsoap in each bathroom. c) We found the DVD/VCR not working (as was noted by a prior family). At 1st property manager did not think they could help out. But we were pleased they dropped off a DVD player the next day. d) We also could not find dishwasher pods to run dishwasher. At 1st we were told to just handwash our dishes. Having a dishwasher available seems unhelpful w/o soap (and frankly not sanitary if being told to trust dishwashing of prior guests), so we bought our own. The next day, we were also left a few pods to use. This should be a consistent item, imo. e) Finally, we were confused to get a tip envelope, as we never had one before. We had to do our own cleaning, and brought all our own towels, so it seemed with such a popular home, the cleaners should be paid appropriately. But we realize some owners tack on outrageous ($300) cleaning fees upfront. We would recommend this home for nice amenities (jacuzzi, nice outdoor patios, great water pressure) and convenient location.

    Great location and the home was clean and very open.

    The house was so much brighter and cheerful than the pictures that were online, and very comfortable. The outside was a little overgrown and looked like nobody was staying there since the grass was not cut, but that was a minor detail. We really enjoyed the views from the decks, the hot tub, and the fact that we could bring our dog with us on vacation, made our stay complete. We do recommend this house, and Avon is a lovely place to visit. Thank you.

It is close to Food Lion, the Ferry, beaches, and the fishing pier. You can literally walk to Food Lion and beach across the street. Steve, the owner, was great with communication and inquiries and responded quickly to our questions. I would strongly recommend it and would definitely come back again in future.

    We were here celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. House was great!!! Had everything we needed. There was enough plates, cups, bowls, and cookware. We cooked in most nights. Hot tub was great used it most nights. Loved the views from the decks. When we plan our next trip we will definitely look to see if this place is available. The owner took care of the couple of issues that arose and they were taken care of quickly. I do have a couple of suggestions if possible to make the stay a little better. Seat cushions at the main table and handheld shower heads. Other than that I had a wonderful stay here and would definitely stay again and would recommend it to any of our friends that want to vacation here

    We really enjoyed our stay! It was comfortable, and a central location for wherever we wanted to go. If it becomes an annual trip, we would probably reserve our vacation here again. Some people in our group seemed to have an allergic reaction while in the house, so there may have been some mildew. And someone who stayed before us left some damages. But overall we had a positive experience, and really appreciate being able to spend our vacation here. And would love to stay here again

If I could make any suggestions, it would be to have some kind of alert for when the bottom level exterior doors open, having 2 toddlers that know how to unlock and open doors, it would be a good peach of mind. We hope to return for another stay very soon!

    We had a group of 6 stay here - 3 couples. There was plenty of space, beds were comfortable, house is clean. We were able to cook together and had plenty of living space to hang out. And when we wanted privacy as couples, there were plenty of places to escape to - both in the house and around town. Avon is a cute small town and this house is in a very convenient location - right next to the supermarket and close to some awesome restaurants and ice cream places. The walk to the beach is about five minutes, so still very convenient considering this is not an oceanside property.
