Description of the Point Harbor vacation home rental
As you can see from the pictures, our home rests approximately 50 feet from the water's edge and is nestled in a private neighborhood, off the beaten path. The grounds are nearly an acre of well manicured native plants and shrubs with several beautiful pine trees for shade when the sun gets too hot. The 40 x 20', in-ground pool offers free solar heat for those evenings when the temperature gets a little chilly. The pool has a salt chlorinator instead of traditional chemicals so its easier on your skin and eyes. There is also a 7-person hot tub where you can enjoy the millions of stars while listening to the waves.

Of the 5 bedrooms, two are master suites where Anderson doors open to their own deck/patio, each with Soundfront views. The Sound is perfect for swimming with its clean, flat sandy bottom and easy access from the swimming platform. Local attractions include: a vineyard, 3 golf courses (the Pointe, Holly Ridge, and Kilmarlic), many restaurants and great shopping just over the Bridge. The Outer Banks beaches and shops are a 5 minute away drive.

In the summer, drive to Roanoke Island for a live renactment of the Lost Colony. The Wright Brothers Memorial is a 10 minute drive away. Take a ferry to Ocracoke or go to Pea Island and see the most beautiful natural habitat and water at the Outer Banks. You can do as much or as little as you please with a vacation here! Be sure to reserve those prime summer weeks early amd enjoy kayaking (provided), fishing, swimming, bicycling, relaxing in the hammock, and breathtaking sunsets and views. The home is perfect for a fall or winter getaway with the firepit and hot tub right by the sound to keep you toasty! You will enjoy the most beautiful sunsets, privacy, and views of the water you can't experience anywhere else on the Outer Banks! 2014 summer bookings are going fast.
Area Information
The Outer Banks includes some of the areas most beautiful and unspoiled beaches on the East Coast. Our home is located at Point Harbor, 5 minutes away from the tourist area of the Outer Banks. The Wright Brothers Memorial where flight first took place is 10 minutes away. If you like day trips, take a ferry to Ocrakoke visit the National Seashore and see some of the native wildlife. Our home is located in one of the most private areas of the Outer Banks directly on the Albermarle Sound. There is no one to walk in your back yard and you have a private dock with a swimming platform. You can bring your jet skis, boat, or use the kayak we provide for you. Our guests have described it as a place you never want to leave.

Wonderful House!

we just returned yesterday from our week at Sound Decision. The house is gorgeous, great views, plenty to do and very close to shops, beach, etc. hope to go back next year.

Like the name says, Sound Decision...

...was a sound decision. My wife and I vacationed at Sound Decision on October 23-30. The weather was great, the soundfront view is spectacular, and the house is spacious and well appointed. The sunsets over the Albermarle Sound were a highlight and the stars at night were vivid, especially when viewed from the hot tub. The location is unique and we found it convenient to get to any OBX point of interest. At the end of the week, we could not believe it was time to go. The owners, Ken and Tawyana, are well organized and thoughtful. We enjoyed it very much. Jim & Sue

tropical storm holiday

We absolutely love this place and were so looking forward to our 3 night girls' getaway holiday. Unfortunately, our holiday coincided with a tropical storm and by the time the weather was trying to improve, it was check-out time. We are planning to return with our whole family for a longer vacation next time; then we can at least have SOME calm, sunny days so we can actually use the kayaks, pool and the dock. The place is beautiful, house has lots of space, and is in a quiet relaxing location. We DID enjoy the hot tub, when it wasn't pouring rain!

Vacation at Point Harbor

Totally wonderful and unforgettable vacation was enjoyed by all! From the moment we walked into this incredible home and saw the beautiful view of the Albemarle Sound, we were hooked. This home had all the amenities...was clean...nicely decorated. Truly we could not have asked for more. Would recommend this home to anyone who wants everything at your fingertips (pool, jacuzzi, wonderful crabbing)...plus the beautiful outer banks just a short 5 mile drive away!

best place EVER!

This has got to be one if not the best rentals for this area! The view and the privacy, by far, cannot be beat! The owners have thought of every ammenity possible-they are a pleasure to talk to and work with. This home is much more than meets the eye and I can honestly say that we can't imagine staying anywhere else while visting the outer banks! Even in the "off season", my young children (3,5, and 8)were completely satisfied and entertained! We will be back and cannot wait to sit once again in those red chairs by the ocean!

"Words cannot describe"

Words cannot describe the wonderful vacation we had here. Location, ammenties, and the home itself offer those staying here a wonderful time. I have stayed at both the northern and southern portions of the OBX, however none have compared to the great time we had here. Anyone contemplating staying here - don't think about it - just book a week at Ken and Tawyana's. Pat from Ohio May of07.

A little piece of heaven !

This vacation home is just amazing. We had the best vacation of our lives. The house comes with every amenity you could want ... and then some. It's such a nice quiet and relaxing place to be but a 5 minute drive and you're at the beach, shopping, restaurants. It's the best of both worlds. The owners were wonderful to work with. Our favorite memory is the evening we spent making s'mores at the fire pit as the sun was setting. Our kids ages 3 and 6 loved it (especially the trampoline)and we all can't wait to visit again.

The pictures don't do it justice

Our family truly enjoyed our stay and were very pleased with the upscale accomodations. We wanted for nothing as every amenity was available. We were amazed at the views and most importantly, the PRIVACY! And when we wanted some action, it was a very short drive to the shops. But honestly, it was a relief to come back to the beach house. Truly a home away from home. Jeff and Mary Clinton

Guestbook

Today is the first day I'm back on line after our trip- just wanted to let
you know what a fabulous house you have! We had a wonderful week- I
could have stayed all summer! the way I sum up the week is that my
biggest decision to amke each day was where to sit, which drink to enjoy
and which book to read! thank-you you much for sharing your house with
us- we're considering when to return!!!!

Have a great summer- we'll carry our Sound Decision memories with us for
the rest of the New England summer!

Beth

P.s- you're right, why travel over the bridge to the mayhem when you can
enjoy the sound- we did enjoy Manteo and Cape Hatteras Light house though!

Dear Ken and Tawyana.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay! Your house is beautiful
and really well equipped and we made use of all the
amenities (incl hot tub and hammock). Weather,
fortunately, was beautiful, and sitting in the garden
enjoying it was wonderful! (April, 2006)

Portsmouth, Virginia

You truly have an amazing place in a fabulous location. After we left your home, we traveled down to Ocracoke for the long weekend. The place we rented down there was beautiful however, the whole time we were there, my family was saying that they wished they were back at your house.



Looking forward to next summer!

We really had a wonderful time! The yard with the spectacular view was a
perfect place for my Dad and Uncle to reminisce about growing up in Canada
in a family of ten. We will definitely tell our friends about your great
place. I can't think of anything I would change. Thanks again!

    We bought our Soundfront home in 2004. We fell in love with the breathtaking soundfront views and privacy. Many families tell us its a home away from home. A day or two here and you will find yourself slowing down to beach time
    This is a little piece of heaven to us and we are grateful for the opportunity...
