The location is great, a short walk or golf cart ride to the beach. The house is in serious need of a remodel, the flooring is the only upgrade made in 40+ yrs. Everything is from the 70's.
Master bedroom: Large room with comfy bed. Master bath: nice size but old. Ladies the lighting in this bathroom is awful and so is the mirror. It felt a little icky to hang towels on the towel bars knowing that the walls probably never get wiped down since there is mold in places on the wallpaper. There is a reason there aren't any pictures of the bathrooms in the advertising for this house.
Bedrm #2: Nice size, mattress pad had black spots on it and the bed is noisy. If you are a lite sleeper you won't get much rest.
Bedrm #3: Normal size. Bed is super noisy also.
Hall Bath: Has shower stall, slightly cramped sink area. The toilet was leaking while we were there.
Kitchen: Tons of cabinet space. Lots of counter space. Large island that seats 8. If the island is fully seated it's impossible to move around the kitchen since the kitchen is not very big.
Living rm: Nice space with uncomfortable furniture. Some of the throw pillows on the couches have mold spots.
Front porch: Nice space. Loved that there's a gate to keep kids and pets contained. Some of the spindles on the railing are loose so don't leave your kiddos unsupervised.
Under the house: Large open garage area. Has interior steps which is nice if its raining. Laundry is located in garage. There is also a weird kind of bathroom in the garage, it only has 2 walls so its an open air toilet and shower.
There is a ground level deck on the side of the house. The outdoor shower is just plain gross!
Overall the house is in a great location and has a decent setup but the owners really need to invest. Most of the paneling walls need cleaning and painting as there is a moldy green look to them.
Dolphin Realty was awesome. We were able to check-in early. We did a drive by of the house. Noticed the cleaning ppl leaving. Drove to the realty office. Explained that we saw the cleaners leaving and were able to check-in. Excellent!
And yes, I would recommend this house to friends but only after explaining the pros and cons so they can make an informed decision.
We stayed at Shell Seeker with four children and our dog. The house is not modern, but very clean and comfortable. Everything is provided that you may need (except linens - I would highly recommend linen rentals)! The location was the best - a very short walk to the beach, which was never busy. We enjoyed Hatteras Village, as it was very quaint and quiet. It was one of our most relaxing and enjoyable vacations!
Other than the a c not working the house location and service was top notch. Dolphin reality was amazing and I recommend them highly.
We stayed here for 10 wonderful days last summer and made some wonderful family memories, the house is well equipped with everything you need neat and tidy on a nice quiet street and a short walk to the beach, and a short drive to ramp 55 if you have a 4x4, close enough to the ferry docks that you can hear the ferry whistles, kids loved this. kids loved riding their bikes all over the quiet neighborhood. Don't pass this p, it's a great little hose, neat as a pin and comfy as can be.

We had been planning our trip since we left Hatteras last summer. We found this house in the village at a great price. Dolphin Realty made everything easy even with a late change of dates. The house was well equipped with good quality appliances and kitchen ware.Everything was in good repair. The walk to the beach was very short and traffic almost non existent. Absolutely best deal on the island.
