Oceanfront home w/private hot tub & heated outdoor pool, fireplace, game room

Fabulous, beautifully decorated accommodations can be yours to experience at MacMurren! A superb ocean view, an enclosed eight-person hot tub room on the middle floor, and Tommy Bahama-style decor give this home a tropical feel. Relax with a book in the second sitting room (library) with fireplace, or in the spacious game room with a pool table and kitchenette. There is a large 12'x30' private pool for your enjoyment and sun decks to catch some rays or take in the ocean views.

The four beautifully painted bedrooms offer two king beds, two double beds, and two singles when you are ready to rest from the day's exertions. After a break, head out to the furnished sundecks to soak in some extra sun, or grab a snack from the small poolside kitchenette before you jump back in! Perhaps catch some viewing or listening entertainment on one of six TVs, three VCRs, three DVD players or two stereo/CD players. A delicious dinner can be prepared in the spacious, tiled kitchen and two available refrigerators will ensure you can properly store any edible treats.

If beautiful accommodations with a tropical feel and an oceanfront setting sound good to you, be sure to come stay at MacMurren on your next Outer Banks vacation!

Our family has stayed in Waves for probably 10 straight years during Thanksgiving. My brother lives there, and the rest of us have rented a bunch of different homes in that area over the years. This was most definitely one of the best. Many that we've stayed in have been fairly similar to one another (nice, but essentially three story boxes on stilts). MacMurren was unique. Perhaps a bit older... but it a good way. It was vintage, but very clean and charming. Loved the open landing between the 2nd and 3rd floors. The first floor game room was more welcoming and worthy of hanging out than some of the others we've visited (ie variety of chairs, lots of space, pool table, kitchenette). The second floor inside hot tub was a completely unique experience. Not only sheltered from the elements, but also seating for those who didn't want to join us in the tub, which worked. Lastly, the 3rd floor ocean facing deck was one of the best that we've had over the years. We spent most of the early parts of our days sitting there and chatting in the sun, with every so often someone saying as they gaze out... "Isn't this awesome?!" Which it was. Thanks to the great hosts! I'm sure we will be revisiting this home.

The house was the best and cleanest we have ever stayed in. Already booked our next year's week!! The pool was exceptional as was the whole set up. Everything we ever would need on our stay was provided. (Kitchen supplies, reading materials, movies etc) we had a most relaxing, enjoyable much needed time away.

Overall, this home was great. Cleanliness was great overall. I loved the layout and view from the back deck as well.

Tons of dishes, cookware, bakeware, and so on. Also, the picture albums of the home show it was there for a long time, even before they had any neighbors. It was cool to see what the area looked like back then.

The bathrooms were good, nothing super fancy, but nothing problematic either. Standard baths, showers, etc.

Lastly, the pool and indoor hot tub were great. The pool is about 5.5 ft. at the deep end and it was a pretty good size, even for a family of 7. In case you're wondering, the pool lights do work, you just need to turn on the switch for them in the outside breaker box on the side of the house (by the pool pump). The lighting was wonderful in the evening.

The best part of the home is that it's right on the beach. You literally walk past the pool, over the small dune (we pushed a stroller), then you're on the beach. We don't like populated beaches either and this beach in September wasn't very populated at all. Very family friendly, few people, mostly families.

Great location! Great pool! Great layout. Well stocked kitchen. Keyless entry wouldn’t work upon arrival, but Robert at the Waves office was extremely helpful and got us in quickly, then sent a repairman the next day to fix the problem. Did see some roaches on the deck, but none in the house. Would definitely stay there again!
Manager response:
Kerri, thank you for sharing your experience with us, we are glad you enjoyed our lovely home. We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience and hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

This house fit our 2 families perfect. In addition to a nice layout the house has just about anything you could need. From a griddle (clutch), to multiple coffee pots and every pan you could need, everything we needed we found. While the house itself is great the real show stopper is the pool and beach. The pool has built in seats for the adults to enjoy and was big enough for everyone to be in at once. For me the beach is why people come to the OBX and the beach here did not disappoint. This was our first time down south so far but it won’t be the last. Minimal crowding, perfect water temperature and constant breeze made the week such a joy. Only 2 complaints if we are nit picking is lack of life guards on beach and inability to see the waves crashing from the house. All in all we will be looking to return next year same week if the MacMurren family will have us back.

We had a wonderful and quiet vacation at the MacMurren Cottage! The kitchen was incredibly well stocked and we loved having the beach only steps away!

This is a very nice home in a great location. Perfect getaway for a small group/family.
CAROL C. May 2022
Pool was nice, once we got the heat turned on, and we had a heat/air conditioning problem on the main floor for three days, despite calling and requesting assistance! That is not the owners fault!
Manager response:
Carol, thank you for reviewing your stay. We're sorry for any disconnect in care you felt when communicating with our team and have shared your comments with the appropriate parties. We are glad the issue was resolved while you were in the home but are sorry it detracted from your stay. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you with our service in the future.

Great House, great location This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Very nice rental/vacation. Would stay again. Some comments would be this rental could use a WiFi update. Add extenders or a new device. Weak/ intermittent signals on the upper floor. Assume the majority of renters take the exterior deck steps from the pool/shower to the 3rd floor deck. A wood/concrete walkway to the steps would be nice to avoid the sand. Add a gas grille on the upper deck if allowed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The openness of the kitchen, living and dining room. All the windows were great! Really a beautiful home, nicely decorated. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

MacMurren was a great house. The layout was family friendly and offered space for card nights as well as private time for relaxing with a good book. While some things have been updated, there are still other things that need attention. The pool was AWESOME!

My family and I had reserved 25291 Sea Isle Hills Drive for the first time this year. We have stayed in other houses near the area. This house set the bar high. The house had everything we needed for our week long stay. Of course we love coming to the beach to see the beach, however with the house we stayed in there was so much to do without having to leave the house! We used the gorgeous pool just about daily. The upkeep of the pool was superb. Our 2021 vacation was all we could have dreamed of plus more! We have already talked about booking our 2022 reservation in the same house!

Awesome house! From the movie theater room, to the indoor pool and hot tub to the TV in every room, and bathroom in every bedroom. The pier walkway is like a nature trail at 1/4 mile long. Balconies everywhere. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
