I am SO GLAD I was able to find Sweet Caroline during my OBX summer vacation research! The house is fantastic and it's just a few hundred yards (2-3 minutes' walk) from the beach.
Our family of four was very comfortable in the house for our week's vacation. The beds were great, the kitchen was really functional, and the living room was a very cozy spot to wind down after a long day's trekking up and down the Outer Banks. Even better, the two balconies off the front and back of the house were great places to watch the sun set or the clouds roll by. There's no direct view of the ocean from the house, but that's a very small price to pay for the comfort of the house itself. We loved it!
And our kids were able to find a great place to hang a couple of hammocks in the trees near the covered parking space...they were very happy!!
Our hosts Sheila and Norman were wonderful. Sheila was so thoughtful and always wanted to make sure we were comfortable and had ideas for what to do during our stay. She's a long-time resident of the area and she's a real gold mine of information on activities, restaurants, and attractions. She had just the right combination of attentiveness without being overbearing. THANK YOU SHEILA AND NORMAN!!!
Highly, highly recommended! We would love so much to come back and visit again. I hope any damage from Hurricane Florence was not too severe...we'd hate to hear about anything happening to Sweet Caroline!
