Three Sheets to the Wind is a perfect place for a Hatteras Island vacation. Three Sheets is nestled into a beautiful, natural, dune-top location on a quiet street in Kinnakeet Shores. The ground level has ample parking, a gas grill, and a private beach walkway. The first living level has four bedrooms (main with private bath), a hall bath, and a laundry room with a private washer/dryer. Vacationers will lose themselves in the large second-level great room with expansive cathedral ceilings, exposed cedar beams, window benches, and a room-top reading nook. An additional third bathroom plus a well-thought-out design will allow for entertaining a good vacation crowd. The open, well-equipped kitchen is readily accessible to the oceanfront dining area. The six-person hot tub is located outside on the mid-level deck overlooking the ocean with views to the west for spectacular sunsets. The third level bedroom with a private deck has a bird's eye view of the ocean and sound. Three Sheets catches the best Avon has to offer.

Grammy and Grandpa took 3 grandchildren to OBX. After much research we chose 3 sheets to the wind. There is some truth in all the negative observations. In spite of that, due to the location, we would recommend this rental to anyone. If we get to return to OBX I hope to rent this property again.

We enjoyed the house and especially the oceanfront location! The hot tub was wonderful, the kitchen is well stocked, and the porches looked out at the ocean were lovely. Everything was comfortable.

It would be nice if they'd fix the hot tub cover and the toilet paper holder in the downstairs middle bathroom.

We would stay there again.

What a great location! Easy walkway out to the beautiful beaches from this ocean front house. Also very close to the pier and walking distance to grocery store, markets and restaurants. Views from the decks are spectacular. Kitchen very usable and comfortable sleeping.

This home is a great value for a beach front property. While this home isn't updated, it works perfectly for the small amount my family was in the home. So if you are booking understand the bathrooms are dated. But everything inside the home functions. Couldn't get the propane grill to work, but the charcoal one was perfect. What I wasn't pleased about was Vacasa. My family reunion was scheduled a year and half ahead of time when the beach nourishment project was not scheduled to be in front of this house. The scheduled was changed and unfortunately I lost my beach access and had lights and noises nonstop for 5 days. Vacasa never notified me of any changes and would not offer anything to alleviate the premium paid for beach access. I have decided not to book with Vacasa again but now that the nourishment is done I do recommend this house. You will have plenty of beach for your family.
Manager response:
We appreciate your review, Theresa. Please accept our apologies if we missed notifying you of the beach nourishment in the area; local staff attempted to reach each guest that would be affected by this. Hopefully we can host you again for a perfect stay in the future. Thank you!

Nice home, very nice location, well maintained and clean with some evidence of age and watermarks on wood trim. A few lightbulbs out and toilet in master suite kind of sticks and refills periodically. Carpet, hot tub, and appliances in good condition. I thought ocean view was mostly from loft only but main level has a very good view of the ocean waves, dolphins, birds. The beach access deck at the top of dune was a favorite
Manager response:
Hi, Gary! We're happy to read you enjoyed your visit. The lightbulbs and toilet are being addressed by maintenance. Please don't hesitate to reach out about these things during your stay. Thank you!

We loved this house. Beautiful beach in the backyard, perfect decks to enjoy the stars, clean and perfect for a peaceful vacation. Great proximity to grocery stores but still secluded and quiet. Five stars!

The home has a great location just off the beach and very close to groceries. The home was very relaxing. There were a few small issues. The water smelled like rotten eggs. Many of the dishes and pans were dirty and older. The home has clearly been well loved and is need of updates. The furniture is old and worn and the comforters are outdated. The beds were comfortable. There is an expectation of cleaning, but not enough supplies are left to clean properly. No working sweeper. Not enough dish soap, trash bags, etc. I would stay here again but I would just pack a bit different knowing what I know now.
Manager response:
Hi Chris, thanks for your visit. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time here and appreciate your feedback. We will review the kitchenware and dishes cleaning with the local housekeeping team. We will also check cleaning supplies and ensure that there is a broom. We hope that you'll come to stay again soon.

The view from the deck and the hot tub was very nice. The walkway to the beach and the outdoor shower,

The bathroom on the main living floor needs some TLC. My wife and I stayed in the lovely loft and that was our main bathroom. Some peeling drywall and old dingy shower controls. But useable.

Lots of OLD electronics in the main living area. I donated a fiber optic cable so that the stereo system provided better sound for our movies and TV.

The biggest negative was the state of the home when we arrived. The cleaning crew needed more time and vacasa was polite and generous because of the late entry. While that was highly appreciated, we still expected a somewhat clean house. I think all they did was put sheets on the beds. Maybe our expectations are too high. Food on the steps, vacuumed 4 to 5 cups of sand out of the carpet. So doubt they vacuumed at all. Sand on a bedspread too. Doubt anyone has cleaned the ladder nook in a long time. There will be sand everywhere. Parking area is sand. So sand comes in easily.
Oh, and there was no screened area of hammock like the pictures showed.
Once we got passed all that, we had a great time. Great views of the beach. Nice hot tub. AC works really well.
Manager response:
Hi Nathan, We apologize if you felt the home was not on par with our cleanliness standards. We strive to maintain a standard of excellence in home cleanliness and upkeep for the comfort of our guests in addition to being readily available to assist in addressing any questions or concerns that might arise. We would have been happy to address any areas in need of additional attention during your stay had we been notified. Next time please call our 24-hour customer service line. We have also let the local manager know of your upgrade suggestions so that they may look into fixing that. We hope you give us a second chance to impress you.

Nice home, right on the beach and with a hot tub. The house itself has some repairs needed, but nothing major. Was really happy at the proximity to the Food Lion.

We'd rent it again.
