From the first time I talked to the owner on the phone to the day we left the beach this was an amazing experience. The house is in an ideal location, with trees around it making it more secluded than many beach homes. We had 7 in our group of family members and our 3 grandgirlz (ages 11, 9 and 6) loved the new pool as did we all. The home is a short walk to the beach for us grandparents and the grandgirlz as well. Parking permits for Hillcrest which was a very short drive away gave access to a parking lot right on the beach if you prefer not to walk. The beaches were less crowded than farther south on the Outer Banks which made it a real winner for everybody. As far as being equipped the house was outstanding and my wife loved everything in the kitchen. The gas grill was a winner for my son-in-law the grill king and was situated on the deck overlooking the pool which was another plus. The house also had minimal steps inside another plus and we also loved the automatic lights that came on outside when going out in the evening. This aided in security and safety. Items like beach chairs, doodles, a big beach umbrella and a buggy to cart things to the beach came in handy. The added fourth bedroom and pool made this home perfect for our group of 7, but the house is big enough to accommodate a tad bit larger group. The pool and hot tub were big winners and the favorite spots. Pool depth went up to about 5-feet or so, perfect for our grandgirlz and the rest of us for that matter. As for what we liked the least, a few pesky ants, but that's kind of expected from our experiences at the Outer Banks. One issue we had was the downstairs bathroom located with the new bedroom stopped up and we had to call for assistance and it was quickly resolved. Flip Flop Inn is a perfect beach destination for us.
