About Karen or Steve Sawin

Karen & I purchased this condominium for our retirement. We grew up in Wisconsin, married and attended university there. We owned an oceanfront motel in Kill Devil Hills for 45 years and still live on a portion of that property. We have two children and have 6 grandchildren living on the Outer Banks and another child and four more grandchildren on Chapel Hill, NC.

Our son Christopher is the director of the Dare County Arts Council half a block away from this rental.

Karen or Steve Sawin purchased this condo in 2004

Why Karen or Steve Sawin chose Manteo

This is a jewel of a little town. Hugged by water and touched by limitless sky, Manteo feels as open as what surrounds it. Locals say hello and smile a welcome to visitors. The town’s kids can be watched joyously jumping off the bridge that leads to Festival Park in the summer heat. And every direction you look, there’s an interesting shop, beckoning restaurant, creative art gallery, fun attraction … and such beautiful scenery. From one spot on the boardwalk that surrounds the waterfront town, you can see Roanoke Island Marshes Lighthouse, Elizabeth II, flags fluttering, sails catching breezes and vessels docked alongside each other, a playground with prancing kids, a gazebo perched over the water, attractive bed and breakfasts and inns and people happily taking in all the pleasure this town offers.

What makes this condo unique

A spectacular view of the harbor and the Albemarle Sound all the way to the Nags Head beaches and the ocean can be seen from your front porch. A waterfront walk-way runs from nearby grocery stores and shops past your apartment on to the Festival Park with live amphitheater, museum and historic boat replica. Deep sea fishing charter inlets beckon from two nearby locations and miles and miles of canals to be explore by kayak start a few miles away.

Great extended spring break weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend the long weekend. Steve was a pleasure to meet and a great host. He met us at the condo, helped us get our luggage in and walked us around the place. The views are magnificent and the unit could not be located in a better spot. Walking distance to nearly everything you'd want to see or do in Manteo. This unit is definitely on our favorites list.

Owner's Response: It is a joy to have shared our second home as a hideaway from the stress and noise of daily living. Get away, come rest awhile, and return a new person. Think Andy Griffith. He used to live here when he wasn't working.

Clean, convienient, Confortable. Would reccomend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view, clean and comfortable. We like to do our own cooking and the kitchen and available equipment made that possible. Having a washer and dryer is a huge bonus. Only minor negative was the master bedroom bed. It was uncomfortable for us, but we are larger than average. Guessing this would be fine for someone of more average size.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

The 3 of us enjoyed our stay at Manteo. The location was perfect, right in the center of everything we wanted to do. The beds could have been more comfortable and the cheerios on the floors in many areas from the last people should have been cleaned up. My advise would be get a cleaning service,Steve.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you liked our home in Manteo. I apologise for the cheerios. Our cleaner failed to show up and I was not as thorough as she is.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I rented the condo for my granddaughter and her family for the Christmas holiday. The view was beautiful, the condo was well appointed and Steve, the owner, was super friendly and helpful. They really enjoyed the convenient location and playground for the kids. Great experience!

Hello, thank you for sharing your vacation rental with me and my family. We enjoyed the place. The view was amazing and the location is perfect. The only suggestion we would make would be to invest in some better pillows. Thank you again for opening your home to us and providing us with wonderful memories.

Perfect vacation place

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location & place to stay in while visiting the Outer Banks. Much less crowded to stay in Manteo than other Outer Banks locations. Stayed 8 days during last week of July 2016. Condo is on the waterfront and you can enjoy walking on the boardwalk, launching kayaks, etc. right there, and taking other excursions right outside your door. Steve, the owner, was very helpful and even met us and helped us move our belongings into the condo. Condo faces the harbor and is across from Roanoke Island Festival Park with Elizabeth II visible from our balcony. This unit is very spacious, which suited our party of 6. Everything was clean, washer/dryer was a lifesaver, air conditioning worked well in our 96 degree weather, and kitchen was stocked well with all kinds of dishes and appliances. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else if we return to the Outer Banks area.
