We spent a week with two of our children and their children - 14 in all. Every one of us LOVED the house! The remodeling is,beautiful, a tasteful blend of history and modern conveniences. We used the two large porches continually -a place for the kids to eat (when four of them weren't up in the captain's overlook) - or for all of to read, talk on the swings, or just look at the ocean. Loved the little touches - the hose to clean off our feet on the main floor porch (besides two very clean showers on the ground level); baskets or bookcases with all kinds of books to read; a tv in nearly every bedroom; and the kids loved having their own second floor all to themselves. The kitchen was well-stocked, with plenty of room for many of us to gather in. It was a quick walk to a very lovely beach, which was never really crowded whatever time we came. We've rented beach houses at the Outer Banks for many years,and this is by far our favorite!

The Lifesaving Station has been our family vacation beach house for the past 20 years. Perfect location. Perfect bedroom setup. Perfect deck. And now a perfect pool. We love to see how the beach house has evolved and you can certainly tell the current owners love this house. We, too, adore it.

My husband and I with our 3 children and their spouses and 6 grandchildren stayed at the lifesaving station #7 last week. We loved the house, the pool and beach! The house has everything you would need. It's very comfortable and spacious. The bunk room is perfect for the kids. There is a lot of stores and restaurants and things to do very close by. The fence around the backyard pool makes it very private and peaceful. The large front porch has a huge picnic table and plenty of big comfy chairs to sit and listen to the surf and relax. We would definitely stay here again. With 14 of us under one roof we didn't feel crowded at all. My granddaughters loved the window seats in the second floor family room. I would highly recommend the house. Joanne was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. Thank you Joanne for helping us have a wonderful family vacation! The Behrens family

We met at Life Saving Station #7 for a family reunion, and the home and property were perfect for our celebration. We had 4 families (19 people) gathering for a long weekend and the layout of the house met our needs nicely. Everyone loved the Life Saving Station! The cousins especially enjoyed the cozy upper floor bedroom for kids and the entertaining playroom. Meal time gatherings were easy and the house was very accommodating, inside and out. We enjoyed spending time on the beach (which was easily accessible), both porches, in the pool, the upper lookout, and at the extra-large dining table. We had plenty of room and while it was easy to find a place to spend time together, we were not at all cramped. There was plenty of bathroom space and enough showers for everyone. The home was clean, well-supplied, nicely decorated, and overall very comfortable. We enjoyed the character, uniqueness, and historical significance of this property. The house location was central to many conveniences including multiple churches, the grocery store, miniature golf, and Duck Donuts. There was plenty of convenient parking. The owner provided excellent customer service leading up to our rental and even checked on us over the weekend. We would highly recommend this property to friends and other relatives, and we would welcome the opportunity to gather here again. Thanks for a memorable stay!
