FFR208 - Sea Breeze

We were very pleased with the comfort and appointments at this unit. I have shared this opinion with friends...usually, we're at OBX with a big group and a big house, so it was really nice to find accommodation suitable for 2 people. I would return and would recommend to others. Special thanks to owners of unit for all the HOOKS. You need so many hooks at the beach and they were exactly where we needed them to be. :)

I loved sitting out on the balcony at this condo!! I read a whole book while we were there. Our two dogs loved it too! Beautiful view and a great place to enjoy the ocean when we weren’t at the beach. There wasn’t anything that we didn’t enjoy. We would love to come back!

FFR307 - Pelican's Perch

Great Place, very accomodating with requests, will definitely return

AV. from Eighty Four, 11/11/2022

FFR208 - Sea Breeze

The condo is well kept and the kitchen is furnished really well with all the things ever needed. The shower is the problem with this unit.The grab bar is in a strange place outside the shower. An additional one inside the shower on the side wall would be great. The shower head is mounted very high so a bit of a problem for a shorter person. A walk in shower unit would be great to avoid that pesky shower curtain problem. Otherwise, this condo was great.
