The house is situated in the most beautiful spot. It was was very clean and well equipped for our stay. The tree frogs along the walk to the sound are so cute to watch. We will be back!

We love the location and private boardwalk. The Jack-n-Jill bedrooms and bath are convenient for the kids. The large propane tank for the grill means endless grilling during our vacation. We don’t have to bring many games/cards because there is ample amount at this home. While the humidity and cloud cover didn’t give us as many breathtaking sunsets I expected, that’s out of your control and we still enjoyed what we got.

My only negative is the mosquitos were insane this time around! We didn’t have this issue last year; I’m sure the latest weather played a role, but I couldn’t enjoy as much of the outdoors because they treated me like a buffet each time we were out.

However, we bought mosquito spray, punk and citronella candles to help. It wasn’t going to completely prevent us from our kayaking and crabbing days.

We loved the house. Everything was perfect. Unfortunately, all of us were sick most of the week, but that was our problem. Fishing was not good, but high temps and storms played a role in that. The house met all expectations. Glenn0

Views were awesome! Kayaks at house were very convenient. Had a few issues with little things at the house upon checking but Vacasa was quick to respond.

Cannot say enough about this house- immaculate, great layout, great location, and very well equipped for any family, especially those with little kids.

When I’ve stayed in rentals with air bnb, I’ve been accustomed to bringing my own basics like laundry detergent, trash bags, etc. we were pleasantly surprised that there was a nice little starter kit left for us on the counter of all the necessities, as well as linens and towels which many other Outer Banks rentals did not include.

Here’s why we especially loved the location of the Quinnebaug as a family of 4 with 2 kids under 5- we originally looked an ocean front rentals. All we could find in our budget for a 4 day trip were tiny condos across the street. When I found this house, I told my husband I was sold because of the private boardwalk out to the sound and 1 minute access to the beach. It was perfect because we got the best of both worlds. We were able to wake up, grab a cup of coffee and walk out to the waterfront in our slippers, and still make a split second decision to be on the beach within minutes. The beaches at outer banks are VERY windy, so we found it very convenient to walk right out to the sound from our back door- and the sunsets at the Quinnebaug are out of this world! Many an evening spent on the swing at the pergola.

I could tell from the guestbook that many other families have returned to Quinnebaug as a family tradition, and for good reason. Thank you to the Ford family for opening your home to us for a wonderful stay!!

MUST eats in Hatteras:
- Pamlico Deli
- Rusty’s Seafood

My *only* complaint would be about communication from Vacasa about maintenance. Twice during our 4 day stay, maintenance workers arrived at the house with no phone call or warning. One to work on the air conditioner, and the other to replace an outdoor outlet for the homeowner. We didn’t know whether they were legit and we were a bit caught off guard.

The view. Easy access to the sound for kite boarding.
Well stocked kitchen.
James S. Jul 2021
Home is nice. Driveway does not have near enough access for a boat. Appliances do not work right. There isnt no private beach that is bogus. Will not be renting again

My family and I love this home. This is the third time we've stayed here. One of the biggest features that draw us, aside from being pet friendly, is the storm shutters we can close to make the bedrooms very dark. We also love the family of tree frogs that live on the back deck! We watched one eat a lightning bug, then proceed to blink from the belly until the bug died.

The only concern I have is a lack of curtains in the home. The sun setting on the sound blinds you if you're on one of the couches.
Manager response:
Hi there Ellen, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!

Had a great 2 week R&R stay at this property in early May, with the OBX having creeped onto the 2021 travel bucket list during the 2020 Covid shutdowns. Pictures and descriptions on this were accurate -- previously cited issues regarding internet and HVAC appear resolved, as wifi was fast and dependable during our stay, and a touch of AC was nice on a few warm humid evenings. While there aren't many reviews on this site yet, as this rental company is newer to the area, this property has been rented for many years, with guest book entries dating to at least 2013, and lots of happy and satisfied loyal renters. The location is in a relatively quiet part of Frisco, which itself was very low-key in May. The view of the sound is awesome, and sunsets (we got lucky, with mainly sunny weather) from the upper deck porch or the private boardwalk leading down to the water's edge were spectacular. Mosquitos weren't yet out in force, but the screened porches of this house would be golden in summer and early fall. Gas grill worked well. Furnishings were basic but sturdy and comfortable, appropriate for a beach house, and the open kitchen/LR concept was nice. Not a ton of restaurants nearby, so self-catering made sense. This house has stair lifts, and while we didn't need that feature, it would certainly be a draw for anyone with a stair-climbing disability. Paddle boards and kayaks were available, although it was too windy to use them most days. The neighborhood has a common dock and small boat launch site, with a shallow waterway to the sound (saw people using jet skis one day). Would definitely return for a shoulder season stay, to avoid peak summer crowds. The pipeline gas shortage deserves a shout-out, added an element of anticipation for the drive home.

A note about the wind: residents and frequent visitors of the OBX know this implicitly (we hadn't been in more than a decade, so had forgotten about the wind) -- the wind speed can play a huge role in outdoor comfort level and activities here. Being soundfront, and we had near-constant wind, ranging from slight puffs (perfect!) to 35mph+ gusts (too windy to even sit outside) during our stay. I think this is the case in most parts of the OBX and isn't necessarily unique to Frisco. There was a small legion of colorful kite surfers capitalizing on the wind most every day in the sound, and if you're into kite surfing, this is an ideal spot for it.

Beautiful view and nice house, need shades in the master bedroom door to outside porch
Jennifer W. Apr 2021
The views from this home are just lovely and the location is right near the accessible Frisco beach and close to a small grocery store and the Dollar General in Buxton as well as Hatteras lighthouse. My father really appreciated the chairlift and the sunsets over the sound. My kids loved the ecosystem along the sound and kayaking for the first time and my husband enjoyed grilling out. I spent the cold days inside reading and enjoying the beautiful water views and sunsets.

We had numerous issues though that should have been checked prior to our stay. The HVAC system wasn't working and required maintenance, the oven gave off a strong smoky smell, the pots and pans needed to be replaced due to excessive wear, the screen was torn on the deck, the Wi-Fi didn't work and the management had to bring out a hot spot, and there was a strong odor in the entry. I hope these issues will be addressed for future guests!
Manager response:
Hei Jennifer, thank you for staying with us. We are glad that our team worked to resolve these issues but are sorry that we could not take more drastic measures during your stay. Our property manager will be addressing these issues as appropriate. We hope that the compensation that was provided back to you helped relieve some of the stress and inconvenience that you experienced. We hope to have the opportunity to host you in the future, for a much more enjoyable stay!
