We Had A Great Time While We Were There. The Pool Was Great. The House Was Great. Needs To Have The Dog Run Adressed Because It Is Too Easy For The Dogs To Get Out Of It. Overall We Had A Great Time

Just got back from our stay at Fred's Shed .... House is wonderful we had 5 adults and 5 children it was plenty of room. Beds were very comfortable. House is well kept. The island is amazing we have stayed at a lot of places in OBX but Avon is our new favorite ... Non-crowded beaches and very clean, lots to do around us. We had wonderful weather as well only rained two nights we were there - none during the day. Definitely recommend Fred's Shed

Great house for a great vacation

June 5, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay in avon at fred's shed. There were only three of us staying in the house, but it's plenty spacious enough that our kid free vacation could include the whole family next time. First off, the pictures do not do the place justice. It's big, open and bright with every creature comfort we could have asked for. The proximity of activities was a huge plus. With food lion, 4x4 access and walk-on beach access very convenient to the house-not to mention Dairy Queen and a number of restaurants and shops. We liked that Avon is central to all the HI villages giving us plenty to do. The owner was VERY prompt and answered any questions we had. The whole process was cake. A big thanks to Gary for allowing us this unforgettable vacation. We would definitely stay again.

Spring weekend at Fred's Shed

March 25, 2014

Our family had a great long weekend at Fred's. The house had a well stocked kitchen, was very clean, and comfortable. The fenced yard was especially great for our four legged kid. The owner is very accommodating and we will definately return to this property in the future! The Meredith Family

Great house

September 19, 2013

Great nice home. Enjoyed staying there so much. Only downside is there is no door on master bedroom. This was a problem because we had kids. Also not a lot of parking, hard to get in and out of driveway to road. But overall very clean and very pretty. We enjoyed our stay.

Awesome place!!

July 31, 2013

We stayed for a week starting on July 14th for our first visit to the Outer Banks and had a great time. The house was perfect for our family. As others have stated, the pictures don't do it justice. We had 5 adults, 2 small kids, and our 2 furry kids with us and we had plenty of room. The location was great for a short walk to the ocean and a short drive to a great area for the kids to swim on the sound side. The owner was great to work with and returned our security deposit quickly. The wife is already starting to plan a return trip.

The house is just perfect for our family. Having the dogs with us was awesome as well. Gary is awesome. He contacted us frequently regarding the weather and road conditions during and after the tropical storm Andrea came through. If you want a place to relax and enjoy the beach then this is the house for you. We really were comfortable and had all the things we needed for an awesome vacation.

First stay in OBX

June 8, 2013

The house was great for what we needed. It was way nicer than the pictures, and had plenty of room, and we had 4 adults most of the time and 5 kids! Great area, next to Dairy Queen, and right across the road is the ocean. We took the fairy to Ocracoke which wasn't far from the house, spent a day in the Northern Outer Banks as well. The outdoor shower is nice for all the little sandy feet we had! The jacuzzi was wonderful! The owner seemed very nice and easy to deal with! Thank You Very much we enjoyed our first trip to OBX and hope to save up to go again!

This place was by far totally amazing in every way. We actually wished it was our real home! We had a great stay, it was nice and clean and any basic item you might need was already supplied. We were definitely spoiled compared to what we are used to at home. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice relaxing vacation. It does not matter if you are a couple, or have kids or animals it's perfect for everyone. I cannot wait to go back!!!!! The pictures do not do the place justice at all. It's way more beautiful once you see it!!!

First Time to OBX

August 22, 2012

It was my first OBX experience so I really didnt know what to expect on a trip there. I feel fortunate to have found Fred's Shed which was a wonderful single family home that nicely accommodated my large family (5 children). The beach was a short walk from the property and there are grocery and restaurant options very near. We were sunburned pretty badly by our second day there, but staying inside to recover was very pleasant. It felt like being at home. It was peaceful and the owners did an excellent job with handling the reservation and returning the security deposit within a couple of days of our return. Our family now has many pleasant memories of our first trip to OBX, and I suspect that it will not be our last. I would highly recommend Fred's Shed and we may very well return to the home in the future.

Great Place to Stay!

July 13, 2012

We had a wonderful time at Fred's Shed. We had 5 adults and 3 children ages 5 and under. We had more then enough room for everyone. The pictures do not do the place justices. All for 4 rooms were large enough you could have added a full size blow up matter. The kitchen was very clean and well stocked with dishes for cooking. The bathrooms were also very clean plus the upstairs has a HUGE jetted bath tub. The house has a great location, only a 2 minute drive to the grocery store and some great restaurants. The beach is only a short 3 - 5 minute walk across the street. My family and I really enjoyed ourselves at Fred's Shed and hope to go back again soon.

Excellent vacation spot

July 5, 2011

The house has lots more room inside than you can tell from the pictures. The location is excellent and very close to various restaurants and stores. It is easily within walking distance to the beach and the fenced in back yard makes for a dog's dream vacation spot.

Fred's Shed is great!

May 23, 2011

We were happily surprised at how great Fred's Shed is! The pictures don't do it justice, it is actually even better than they show. It was very clean, well organized, close to the beach, convenient to the major food store, and the owner was very pleasant to work with while we were in the planning stages of our trip. We loved the house and area and plan to go back in a year or two again. We highly recommend Fred's Shed! Diane from Dublin, Va

Great location- about a 5 min walk to beach access paths from your choice of side streets. Wide beaches and no crowds! Comfortable home and just 3 lots away from Dairy Queen! Nice large yard for your pets. Owner was great and easy to deal with. The next door neighbor is great if you need help with anything!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

A new review has been submitted for your property:

Property: 322242 - "Beautiful Vacation House in Avon, Obx"

Review Title: 33620 - "Great place to stay"

Review Rating: 5/5

Review Text: "The house was very well-kept and clean and very comfortable. The fenced in backyard was perfect for our two dogs and with one dog that can jump over fences- the fence was too tall for him to jump. We had four teenage boys and the house was great for them- plenty of room.
Close to the beach and restaurants. We had a great time and everyone really enjoyed themselves and actually got along without any fights. So the house was big enough to give each their space. I would definately recommend this house to a friend and would stay there again the next time we plan to go to the Cape Hatteras area. "
