A perfect family vacation
"It was our annual beach vacation, and it turned out to be a great vacation, in every sense of the word. I took my family down to Cape Hatteras, having never been there before. We had been to Nags Head in the past, as well as other vacations spots up and down the Carolina coast line. I found this home a few months ago, and Cheryl was amazing from the first time I made contact with her, till the very end. She is amazingly considerate, and a welcoming host. The house was everything we had hoped for. Having only seen pictures, prior to heading down there, we knew that we were going to be close to the beach. Not till we arrived there, did we realize how close we were. My wife and I were able to sit on the deck, and watch our children on the beach. My kids loved every minute on the beach. The amenities afforded with the house, were all we could ask for.
We went shopping for groceries the same night we arrived. However, as mentioned in past reviews, and by Cheryl, the store is a bit of a drive, and extremely crowded during the weekends. We cooked in quite a bit, as well as availing the B-b-que grill. We brought bikes down for the kids, and used 2 of the bikes that were there to ride down the street to the ice cream store. My 15 yr old found sanctuary in the game room downstairs when he needed some time alone to watch his TV shows, while we entertained our two younger kids upstairs.
From taking day trips on the island, to going to Ocracoke, and renting a boat, we had the time of our lives.
Thank you Cheryl for being such a gracious host. Your home was the perfect vacation getaway."

Great beach cottage!
"This was our first time visiting the OBX and SEAcret Treasures was the perfect place to stay. It is a delightful, cozy home which is very well equipped with anything you may need. The deck is spacious and has amazing views in every direction. We loved having the bikes to cruise around the area and to visit our cousins who were staying a block away. It is in the perfect location for sightseeing and learning about the history of the region. We enjoyed seeing Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the wildlife refuge, and the Lost Colony in Manteo. Cheryl was so nice and helpful in answering all our questions. She was a pleasure to work with! We live on the opposite coast in California but if we lived closer we would definitely spend every summer at SEAcret Treasures!"

The house was wonderful, just the right size for us. It was is an excellent condition.
"The house was wonderful, just the right size for us. It was is an excellent condition. The stairs and deck look freshly stained. Furniture in/ outside were plenty and convertible. Thoughtfully designed. This house had a lot of details, which really made it stand out, such as the game room for when the weather isn't too great. We really enjoyed how close the house was to the ocean."

Incredible vacation cottage and awesome sun and fun!
"Well we are home from another awesome vacation on Hatteras Island on the Outer Banks. We are so lucky that we get to stay and the best cottage in Rodanthe and we so appreciate Vernon and Cheryl sharing their home. The cottage has just what everyone needs and wants for a comfortable, relaxing stay. We love the short walk to the great beach and we love the closeness to the sound and ocean. Hubby caught some great tasting fish and we had a great day kayaking on the sound. The cottage is always very clean and the decks and chairs are wonderful for early morning coffee or late night cocktails. I only wish we could have stayed a little longer and we are looking forward to our next visit. Be safe and have fun!"

"We love this cottage! This was our third year staying in SEAcret Treasure, and it truly is a treasure. Third house back from the beach, less than a hundred yards. Cheryl and Vernon do an excellent job keeping the home in tip-top shape, and Cheryl is so pleasant to work with. The house is spotless, and well cared for. The kitchen is well equipped, and all the furnishings are comfy. I can see down the road the bathrooms may need some updating, but that may be because I have a new bathroom in my home. Overall, this little gem is the best place for a couple or small family to vacation. The bikes and game room are an added plus. We used the bikes almost every day, as there are so many places to ride to, and there is a nice sidewalk for walkers and riders. Overall, just a really great place to stay!"

Incredible Cottage, Awesome Location and Relaxing Vacation!
"Well, I cannot say enough about the lovely cottage by the ocean. This cottage is just perfect of us. It is very well maintained and loved, very clean and has all the necessities that are needed for the perfect relaxing vacation. We had two of the best weeks enjoying fishing, relaxing, sight seeing and great walks on the beach. The weather was awesome and the ocean felt great. We have been coming down to Rodanthe for 10 years and we are so lucky that most of the years we have been able to stay at this perfect cottage. As always, thanks to Cheryl and Vernon for sharing with us. See you next year!"
