The property is great for families. The heated pool is the star of the house. Ample refrigerator space. The ice makers are great as well as the numbers dishwashers. The view of the ocean is gorgeous from the upper deck. Game room was a hit with kids and adults alike.

Beautiful home that shows it is well kept. Our group had 14 adults and Four 16 year old girls. House is very well equipped. The heated pool is a huge bonus. Having no bedrooms on the 1st floor is great. Immediate access to the ocean. Terrific view from the 3rd floor.

The rooms and furnishings all met expectations. It's a big house with sufficient room to spread out for a large crowd. The kitchen could have been better stocked

I was apprehensive to try a new rental company because I’ve been coming to the OBX for 30 years and basically used the same company and/or AirBNB (based on size of group coming) but the house had everything we wanted and needed and I am so glad we went with Joe Lamb Jr and will absolutely use them going forward.

Location was great. Rented a chair and umbrella service each day. No more lugging stuff to the beach. Hot tub was excellent. Kids enjoyed the game room. All equipment in media room worked.

Such an amazing house. From the dune-top deck with an unobstructed view to the media room that was like our own movie theater, it was the perfect vacation home. The sounds of the waterfall from the infinity-edge pool was an amazing addition to the beautiful beach noises. The outdoor bathroom was a huge bonus (we thought it was just a shower but having a toilet with easy access while outside was amazing).

This is a wonderful house for multi-family gatherings. The ocean views are fantastic. Having 2 fridges and dishwashers in kitchen is so helpful.
