Fantastic Stay would Recommend

  • 5 of 5

This was one our top vacations ever. This house is right on the beach, no dune to cross, no road, RIGHT ON THE BEACH. We say ocean life everyday including a whale at one point! Great location only minutes from fast food, better restaurants, Food Lion, mini golf, and more more more. Without hesitations I would recommend this house. We went each of the last two years and stayed here and if ever in OBX again we will try to stay there again.

Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property, the proximity to the surf is much closer than other nearby properties. Just walk down the steps and you are almost at the water line! Pelican's know it's named after them as we had Pelican's fly over the top deck multiple times a day, incredible! And even though the weather wasn't always great, we saw a lot of dolphins and pelicans in the ocean from our seats on the top deck. Our Labrador loved chasing the surf and at night we got to see the small crabs (Nags Head phenomenon!) appear on the beach in the moonlight and watch as he went to play with them...or at least try to. ;) The living area and kitchen were nice. The elevator was great when bringing suitcases, food, purchases up daily but if you have elder parents or someone with bad knees, it's a God send. The bedrooms and showers are a bit dated but for the most part, no one had any issues with the beds. The walk-in showers are a bit small and some might find them tight but there are two tubs with showers that can be used instead on the top floor. Overall there are two king bedrooms on the top floor (one on each side of the living area) and four on the 2nd floor (two single king bedrooms and two double queen rooms). Loads of room to spread out. It was nice to have the washer and dryer located on the middle floor. Oh and I did mention the ice maker under the counter in the kitchen...a must for those frosty drinks as you recover in the huge hot tub at night! If you are a griller, you'll be disappointed in the tiny, rusty grill near the parking pad but there are many great restaurants in the area so all is not lost! All in all we had a great time and would rent the Pompous Pelican again. Thanks Dawn for allowing us to enjoy your home for the week. :)

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time. All of the king beds are 1 year old and the grill that is rusty due to proximity to the ocean is less than 6 months old. I wish the showers were a bit bigger, however this home was built in the early 80's and unfortunately we (me included) aren't as small as we used to be. Hope to see you back again in the future !

Beautiful Location, View goes on forever!

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious, lots of room to spread out. Loved the hot tub, never wanted to get out as it was cold and windy out! Beach is right outside deck, our son (10) could play while we sat on deck and watched. Kitchen was very large, room for several people at a time. Elevator was a big help in packing and unpacking, because there are a lot of stairs. Owner was nice to work with and very helpful. We would love to go back in season and see everything that was closed at this time of year. Thanks

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home for family and friends to get togetherIn. The close ocean views are spectacular, and the "great room" along with huge kitchen were very inviting.

Owners were a real pleasure to deal with. Can't wait to return in November.

Absolutely Perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a better house to spend our long Girl's Weekend. Every single one of the six bedrooms has a wonderful ocean view as well as an en suite bathroom!! The kitchen is beyond big enough to accommodate large meals. The house is perfectly centrally located with many restaurants to choose from as well as a great outlet mall only one mile away! We will be visiting the Pompous Pelican again.... count on it!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time. We love repeat renters ! It really is a special place for those that LOVE the ocean. The location is perfect as well. Close to everything, but yet not in the middle of it all as well.

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.
