The Love Boat is a comfortable, well-appointed home with plenty of space. The great room/kitchen on the top floor is a wonderful gathering spot and the deck is perfect for watching the sunset. The bedrooms are comfortable and we love that they each have their own bath. Having two dishwashers is really helpful! This home has just about everything you need!

I once lived on the outerbanks and I return every year to visit. Of all the homes I've stayed, The Love Boat is by far the best! I love that it has everything anyone would ever need. If I never left the house the vacation would still be golden. I love that every room is spacious and has there own bathroom, the elevator is very handy when hauling groceries and luggage and this year a life saver for a family member in her 90s, the decor is just beautiful, the private pool and covered grilling area is great for family gatherings, and the hot tub was so relaxing at night. The Love Shack is another gem for family game time. The only downside is the Love Shack doesn't have a restroom so we had to race back to the main house for potty breaks. We also enjoyed fishing and crabbing near the dock and at the point. I look forward to spending many more summers here!

We loved everything about this house. The kitchen is a dream. So fun that each room is a different location. Would stay here again

This home was the favorite of our group. We travel to Avon, Frisco, or Hatteras as a group every year. The Love Boat exceeded everyone’s expectations with the size, amenities, and overall ability to spread out a large group. The Main house have two separate living rooms was great for parents and kids being able to do their own thing. The fact that the pool area and “Love Shack” are detached was also fantastic. Lastly, location, location, location!!! 2 minute drive to beach access and Frisco Rod and Gun was perfect. If you like sunsets, look no further! We will be booking again, which we never do…We have always liked trying new houses. Not anymore!!!

Just love the house. We have stayed there for 4 or 5 years, but everything has gotten so expensive. the rental price, cleaning and pool heat plus gas price to drive there!! We have many good memories of the Love Boat, but we're going to look for something closer to home!!

This house has everything you could need or want. It was well stocked & beautifully decorated with some of the most amazing wood furniture I've seen. There's plenty of room for everyone, so you can spread out if you want or need to. We brought all our water toys & was able to safely dock them next to the house. It's has a protected canal & there's a ramp to load & unload at the end of the canal; super convenient. This is always a concern when we bring our boat & jetskis on vacation, so to have all this conveniently located & easily accessible was a huge plus. Just be aware that it gets shallow at the mouth of the canal. The jetskis had no problems, but my 20ft deck boat had to have the motor tilted almost fully out of the water to get through. The sunsets are amazing & the decks have plenty of room for everyone. Also, the powerful binocular on the top deck was a fun way to view the wildlife & surrounding water activities. We saw deer on several occasions & even a family of otters playing & eating in the canal. Truly special place !

The house is absolutely beautiful!

Great location but had lots of roaches in the kitchen and the deck for the 3rd floor bedroom is rotten.
Hi, Joshua! We are so glad to read this home was a good location for you. The third floor deck is scheduled for repair in December, and we are scheduling pest control to deal with any roaches. Thank you!
Gerard J.Sep 2021
Very clean when we arrived, had all 7 master bedrooms filled for our 50th weeding Anniversary. The waterfront sound is great and the sunsets are amazing. Short ride to the beach that was not crowded. The pool is also perfect. Plenty of room for partying and plenty of room to be to yourself. We will be back again.

The Love Boat was the perfect accommodations for a family vacation. We had 5 couples and two singles in our group and everyone had their own private space to retreat to and spacious family rooms to join up. The Love Shack was a great retreat for the younger crowd to let loose and listen to music a little too loud and dance while the grandparents enjoyed the tranquility of the main house. The kitchen has very possible appliance and great work space. Thank goodness for the elevator!

This was our second year in the Love Boat.House was in good condition and management company was Quick to handle a hot tub issue. I hate to move on from this house for 2022 but a $3000.00 increase is more than I believe it’s worth.
Kim M.Jun 2021
This home has everything. Love that it has a private pool, pier, and directly on the sound. It easily accommodated 14 people. We had one hiccup - the toilet seat in one of the 9 bathrooms was broken, and management took care of it quickly. I've stayed here twice and booked again for next year.
Andrew B.May 2021
This property must be a VIP because the staff that takes care of this place. I felt they watched it and our group like a hawk the entire time we were there. This place is beautiful and perfect, I can't say enough great things about the property other than perfect.
Corey H.May 2021
Great spot on the sound for fishing, top notch amenities throughout the house.
Brittany M.Apr 2021
We loved this house!! The views were beautiful and there are so many places to explore around the house. This will be one of our go to houses from now on!
Cecile B.Apr 2021
The house is just gorgeous, extremely well appointed and comfortable. Nothing is missing.
The love shack was a huge plus for our kids who felt very independent.
Overall, we spent a wonderful week in the Love Boat!
