Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family stayed at the Pink Pelican for 3 nights in January. Crazy time to take a vacation, but I am so glad we did. This home was lovely. We enjoyed how spacious it is, how bright and sunny it is, and the views are amazing. We will return.

Pink Pelican Family Dream House

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in the OBX many times in the past and rarely do you come across a house that is so beautifully curated. Most of the times we find ourselves just lucky to be on vacation but this time our vacation in the OBX was truly a relaxing treat. The Pink Pelican offered even more room than we needed for our small family which was ideal because we had lots of space for our family to play. We have a two year old and the layout was very family friendly. All the floors have nice soft carpeting which makes going up and down the stairs easy and quiet. The location of the house is so perfect. Central to every family friendly activity that one could want and we did them all. We hit a patch of rough weather during much of our stay in the off season so we were even more thankful to be in a home that made us feel so relaxed and pampered. We look forward to returning with even more of our family and when our children are older and can partake in all of the exciting activities that the area has to offer.

Sharon was so helpful and readily available to us throughout our stay. She was able to answer any questions we had and was truly accommodating. We can't wait to return to the Pink Pelican again!!!

A wonderful cozy and roomy house

  • 5 of 5

We were in Manteo for a wedding over New Years Eve. There was plenty of room for 8 of us and more room to spare. The beds were comfy and cozy. The house was warm. Nice to have a gas fireplace. Sharon, the owner, was kind enough to check in with us during our stay to make sure we doing OK. Loved walking the area. Loved being on the water, even if it was frozen from the very cold weather. We would definitely recommend this home and would love to go back to visit. Hot tub too!!!!!

Cozy comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at dusk after having been evacuated from Waves. Sharon had the lights on for us when we came and it left a lasting impression. The home was clean, cozy, comfortable and nicely decorated. Sharon made us feel welcome and answered all of questions. The view from the dining area made us feel as though we were right on the water. The guys even got to crab off the docks. The property had everything we needed for a worry free enjoyable stay.
