Great Home With Awesome View

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults stay for a long weekend of golf. The home was just perfectly set up and the views were awesome. Every morning just grab a coffee and watch the sun come up. We even saw dolphins a couple of times. You can just walk down the beach to the pier and they have a small restaurant with good food and beers. We had such a nice time on the beach that we did not get much golf in.The open concept great room was perfectly set up and never felt crowded. The kitchen had every thing you could possibly need and more. The owners were great to work with and we hope to come back in the future.

Ocean Front Beauty

  • 5 of 5

I arranged for my husband and I and three other couples to stay at the Pompous Pelican for a long weekend to celebrate the new year. I had searched other beach homes but this home served all our needs. There were 4 bedrooms with king beds and two others with queens. This was perfect for all adults since most other rentals had bunk beds in bedrooms. The home was well supplied with kitchen items along with linens. When we arrived, outside work was being done on the home, however the owner assured us there would be no construction while we were there. She was correct and even let us check in earlier because of the inconvenience. The ocean views from each room were amazing! We enjoyed the decks and the great room/kitchen/dining area was huge and quite comfortable for all eight of us. It was a wonderful place for a get away! I think we will be renting the Pompous Pelican again!

Panoramic Views and Great House.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and friends stayed at your home for a long weekend recently.The website does not do this home justice. The panoramic views on three sides of the house is mesmerizing. The house is only 8 steps to the beach and is an excellent spot for a family or friends vacation. There is a pier restaurant walking distance up the beach from the house with local entertainment and shopping within minutes of the home.

The home itself has all the required amenities with the furniture comfortable with abundant to support a large family or get away.

The owners were extremely responsive and easy to work with and accommodate our needs. .,

This is a must stay if you are visiting the OBX and I will put you on our calendar for next year as well.

Thanks for the use of your home and well look forward to staying there again soon.

Amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first trip to the Outer Banks so I wasn't sure what to expect. I have to say this was the best vacation ever! The house is very spacious and comes well equipped with everything you need. The views from the decks are amazing. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets!! The decks offer comfortable seating for ocean gazing with plenty of room for a large family. The beach is right there and is very clean. The house is located close to shopping and restaurants and fun activities for kids. The owners were very nice to work with. We do plan on returning next summer!

Awesome Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! The house was very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen, dining and living rooms are open concept with nearly floor to ceiling windows facing the ocean. There are also wrap around decks on each level, facing the ocean, with doors from each bedroom to the deck...the views are breath taking! It also offered a well equipped kitchen, which even includes puzzles and games for a rainy day. There is even an elevator for those who have a hard time with stairs, and the hot tub is great for relaxing and watching the ocean waves come in. This is a great location, right on the beach, with restaurants, shopping and many adventures nearby. The owners were easy to work with and true to their word. We look forward to staying here again in the near future.

Wonderful place to enjoy the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay and enjoy the beach. The views in this house are spectacular! The hot tub is wonderful for relaxing in the evenings or when it's raining which it did several days while we were there. There is plenty of room enjoy each other or to have some space in another room. The kitchen is well stocked for large parties. IE two toasters, two blenders and plenty of pans. We had one mechanical issue with an A/C unit that the owners addressed immediately. The owners were a joy to work with. Without question, I would recommend this rental highly!
