House was beautiful and view was awesome.

Beautifully decorated, Reel Living is an updated older home in the older part of Avon with a comfortable layout and some really cool surprises like a tower with a futon and a work station! Accessibility was great for people with achy knees, with a reasonable number of steps to the first floor, where the kitchen, living room, and two bedrooms are located. Three roomy bedrooms upstairs had very comfy furnishings, en suites, and great views. The kitchen was well-stocked. The shaded deck offers fantastic soundfrount views. The grassy yard was perfect for rigging sailboarding equipment, and the little dock was great for launching kayaks and paddle boards. The owners thoughtfully include two kayaks, some bikes, and beach chairs for their renters. Our family has stayed in several houses in Avon, and Reel Living is by far our favorite.

House was amazing. The view out back is so spectacular especially at sunset. Very nicely decorated. The kayaks were a real treat. Kitchen at front door is perfect with large table for whole family. The wrap around porch is great for little kids to run and get out energy. Just a stunning house.
Will look to rent again.

It’s a great smaller house, right on the Sound. The new owners have updated many things in this house. My Wife and I were here for 2 weeks. A very nice, relaxing vacation. They changed TV service providers from Directv to ROKU/Spectrum streaming services. We were not familiar with these and didn’t even find Spectrum live TV until the 2nd week. This was the only major problem for 2 Disabled Retired people. A Television Guide would be VERY helpful! We will probably book this house again.

In 4 years of coming to the Outer Banks, we all agreed this was our favorite house. Conveniently located to amenities, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. The view and access to the sound was second to none. It was spacious and comfortable. The only negative is the drastic price increase beginning next year. We were beyond disappointed to see the weekly rate had more than tripled. So it is now out of our reach and sadly this will remain our one and only stay at Reel Living.
Thank you for your review! We apologize for the increase in pricing. Our pricing is based on dynamics and will fluctuate due to the time of year and demand. The price will fluctuate throughout the year. We look forward to hosting your next vacation!

No tv even needed the show was in the sunsets. The porch was great to relax and watch. We loved the dock also. House was perfect! Thank you!
Terry H.Apr 2021
House was left very dirty. Sand, dirt, and hair were everywhere. Had to clean the entire house once we arrived as we could even take a shower without dirt and sand sticking to our feet. Only 1 tv out of 5 worked. We called Hatteras realty and they said someone would come out however they never fixed the issue or communicated why they could not. There is also a bunch of sand in the bottom of the hot tub which leads us to think it is never cleaned either. None of the lights on the stove work. The ice maker did not work. The shower curtain was moldy. Other than the cleanliness and maintenance issues it would have been a great stay. At this price point, just a day of upkeep would be all it would take to get it cleaned up.
Hi, Terry! We are disappointed to read you had so many issues with your stay. All of your concerns have been addressed with the exception of the ice maker. We are currently working on this and hope to have it resolved soon. Thank you!

I absolutely loved this home and the location. We had 5 adults, 2 children, and 2 dogs. It was absolutely perfect! Great yard for the pups and kids to run around in. The home was extremely comfortable and very clean. The water access was wonderful and we had a lot of fun watching the kite-surfers fly by. I would highly recommend this home - one of the best OBX I have stayed in. Thank you so much for sharing!

I came up to Reel Living with two friends to work remotely for the month of February. The house was PHENOMENAL. We enjoyed the sunsets each night and had plenty of space to work and live. The WiFi was very fast and was able to accommodate three people working remotely for the entire month. Vacasa was also incredibly responsive and when we called with a need, they fulfilled it same day! 100% would recommend this home to anyone who wants to enjoy peace and quiet on beautiful Hatteras Island!
