Nice large house near the beach and the bay. Great access to everything.

Our family (my wife and two young kids) stayed here for a week in August 2017 with extended family (7 additional people). We quickly could clearly see why John receives such glowing accolades as a star host. From the start, he was extremely responsive and informative. He was also…

Response from John:
Thank you for that great review. Very kind of you. 5 stars is an honor. As for the spiders.... you are the 2nd quest this year to mention them, after having no one raise the issue since I began renting the home in 2002. So something is off and I will find out and fix it. As my Response below from one other guests shows, these are harmless, non-biting, Daddy Long Leg type creatures that normally are not here in August, so this is unusual. But yes, every home on the island is dealing with it. They feed off Midgets, that also only show up a week or two each year, in Spring or Fall, never July and August. So something is unusual and I will sort it out. Thanks for the heads-up.

This was my family's first time using airbnb. I would recommend John's home (it's not just a house) to anyone I know. The home is just north of Downtown Duck in the Carolina Dunes section on OBX. The kitchen, dining area, living area on the 3rd floor was spacious. The home has 4…

Response from John:
Thanks for the 5 star review Tom! Very gratifying from a first time Airbnb user, some of whom don't seem to get your distinction between a house and a "home." I also touched on it in the House Rules section of my site. Viewers are encouraged to read it before booking. One guy below didn't and the result was a malicious fabricated 1 star review, my first ever out of over 100 reviews since 2002, over 90% of which were 5 star. Goes with the territory I guess but after reading his I was about to block all first time Airbnb users, until yours renewed my faith. Thanks again!

John's house is cozy and very comfortable. The pool and hot tub are very comfortable and pretty roomy, and there's a good amount of seating in the living room for movie nights. John showed us around the house when we arrived and was very quick to respond to all of our questions …

Response from John:
Glad you liked my home and found it cozy, clean and comfortable -- except the spiders outside. Yes, we in OBX know about that type of spider who arrives semi-annually usually only for a week or two in early Summer and early Fall. They feed off a tiny airborne bug that also only arrives that same time of year. Both are harmless and neither bite, similar to locusts, and their nuisance is short lived, here today gone tomorrow. But for a week or two, we must knock down the webs every morning and do it each day, because they return every night, for a week or two. Small price to pay for living on the beach in OBX. Thanks again for the review.
