Great house and location :) comfortable and close to coffee shops and grocery store. Just a dune walk away from beach and view of sunrise from the roof deck was amazing!

We have rented this house for the last 2 years on the week of Thanksgiving . Last year the hot tub needed a part . This year we had to keep adding water to the hot tub . Jets were not strong at all . Would like to rent again next year but the price has all most doubled . It's only myself and my wife and we always leave the house in wonderful shape . I could see the price going up but that's a lot . Thanks for letting me give my opinion .
Manager response:
We are thankful for your return visit, Ralph. We were very happy to host you guys again. We apologize that there were concerns with the hot tub. We appreciate your feedback about pricing. Sometimes rates do need to fluctuate to help cover the cost of cleaning and maintaining the home. We hope to be able to host you in the future.

We had a wonderful trip to Gray Haven. It's an older home, but still comfortable and felt warm and cozy to us. If you are looking for a state of the art kitchen, this is not the house for you. if you are looking for a house to relax and enjoy OBX this will be perfect. The beds were comfortable. The living space was open and welcoming.
The access to the beach was a little tricky, but we found a nice staircase/board walk a few houses down that went over all the dunes. There were SO many people fishing on the beach, that was the only thing I really didn't like because we had to walk quite a while to get to a place where we could get close to the water, but that's not a reflection of the house.
Prickly Pears are no joke, don't walk around without shoes or you'll be sorry.
The house was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We had a couple of VERY minor issues when we were there and VACASA responded immediately.

I really enjoyed staying at Gray Haven! The views were great of both the ocean and the soundside sunsets. The coffee table was great for working a puzzle. I thoroughly recommend Gray Haven as a place to stay for a trip to the Outer Banks!

Grey Haven is perfectly located on the beach in the heart of Avon. Beautiful view on the top deck of the beach.

Nice house. Is as it appears in the ad.

Lots of stairs though.

Our family loved our winter beach getaway that this well equipped home! It had everything we needed plus a bunch of extra fun things! The closet with games and puzzles was a hit with the kids, the book selection helped each of us find a great relaxing read for our wide variety of interested, and the small addition of several laundry baskets made this mom’s laundry work much easier! The decks and crows nest room were so nice and we loved star gazing on the top deck as we bundled up under blankets! The walk to the beach was not bad at all and if you know to be prepared for the sand burs, it’s easy enough to plan shoes on for walking to the steps and boardwalk to the beach. We loved being able hear the waves from the house! It was such a comfortable, easy place to hang out!
