Loved the location, the sound, the house was very comfortable and well-stocked. Would have loved a king bed upstairs but we got cozy instead.

Sound Effect includes all of the amenities you need. Loved the fully stocked kitchen and 2 person kayaks. Fishing off the back dock was so much fun. Furniture and bedrooms were so nicely appointed for a rental. Would stay at this home again in a heartbeat.

Loved fishing and crabbing from the dock. Kiting from the place was fantastic despite the challenge of launching from the dock. Perfect launch for windsurfing though.
Walking to the ocean public access was easy too.

House is wonderfully situated on the sound and was exceptionally clean. The beautiful sunsets were a surprise.

Sound Effect is the perfect house to chill in OBX. Quiet with beautiful Pamlico Sound views and sunsets. Watching the windsurfers and kitesurfers was very cool. This house would be a great launching spot if you do those sports. The house was clean and comfortable. Kitchen had everything needed to prepare fresh, local seafood. The hot tub was clean and very relaxing. We'll be back!

We had a great vacation in this home. Clean. Amazing deck! We vacationed with 8 total people and it did feel a bit cramped at times however, we spent most time outside. The covered parking is awesome and the kayaks were excellent. With the drastic price increase for 2022, we are holding off on booking to find a larger home. Hat tip to the owners for a great place.

Wow. We have been renting on the Banks for over 20 years. Sound Effect is voted by our family on this trip as our #1 house due to the spectacular sound views that enveloped us even looking out from the kitchen and great room...let alone the decks! The house has upgrades since seeing the online photos: new countertops and a new dishwasher in the kitchen; the bathroom next to the kitchen has been remodeled and painted; and there are newer couches in the great room. Also, very nice is the dock area with extensive "cat walk" footage. We were very pleased and lucky to have been able to spend our two weeks at Sound Effect. We will be back.
