Lovely place for a relaxing vacation!

This was our first time visiting the Outer Banks. My parents, my husband and I stayed here for a week during the summer. The house was perfect for what we needed. The beds were comfortable, the upper deck was breezy and had a nice view, the open kitchen, dining and living room were great for hanging out in. The pool was perfect for us as the oceans were rough on windy days. The hot tub was also a nice bonus. The A/C and fans kept us cool on the hot days, and the beach is only a few minutes' stroll away. We liked that Avon is a much quieter town than some of the places further up the Outer Banks. The proximity to the grocery store couldn't be better, and the Cape Hatteras lighthouse and other attractions are only a 10-15 minute drive away. We would definitely recommend God's Blessings for those considering visiting this area.

Very Nice Rental!

We chose this house because of the pool and hot tub, the location (it seemed kind of central to the things to do in the area) and the cost was good.

We really liked being able to walk over the dune to the beach.

I would definitely recommend this rental to another family, the house is in a great location, and it was clean and decorated nicely. The furniture was really comfortable for a rental.

My biggest surprise was how beautiful the area is! Tons of recreational opportunities and plenty of historical places to visit.

Great experience

We absolutely loved Blair's place. You have four bedrooms of good size and two baths. A deck with an upper deck for sunning. A grill. A great covered area for the hot tub in case it rains. The pool is a blessing on windy, rough seas days and makes the neighbors jealous. Beds and couch are comfy and the kitchen is nicely stocked with plenty of amenities. There's a foosball table and card playing area. The beach is just over the dune path and plenty of cute crabs to see. For the horse lovers there is a spot in Manteo , on the beach, that takes children also. We brought a 3 year old. Great experience. We will return to Gods Blessing❤️

Wonderful House

The house was wonderful as were the owners. The hot tub and pool were a lovely amenity. Everything was perfect. The owners were wonderful to communicate with and super helpful. The house was extremely clean, well stocked with things to do, and things for the beach ! Would 100% rent again. Thank you !

Great for our family

The pool was beautiful. Location was so great. It was quite, easy to get to, and very close to the grocery store. Communication with the owners was fantastic. We love being on a quieter non commercial part of the island. It was great for our small family, with room to spare. Nice piece of the beach. Love Avon. Also the furniture and decor was nice clean and went together well. It was a great vacation! Sad to leave.

A gem

God's Blessings is a gem. We have never been to the Outer Banks before, and we feel lucky to have found this lovely spot. The house is lovely and comfortable, and we really appreciated the amenities such as the hot tub, the laundry room, and the extremely accessible beach (with two small children, the quick walk over a dune onto the beach was amazing). We could hear the waves crashing from the house and see the ocean from the top deck. Amazing! Jennifer and Blair are extremely responsive to questions or concerns, and they made our vacation very easy to plan and execute. The house was extremely clean and very nicely furnished/decorated. We really enjoyed our time here and will definitely be back. Avon is a terrific town- just enough stuff to do without the headache or hassle of an overcrowded beach town, and the location further south gave us better weather at the end of March. Don't hesitate to head to this lovely home in Avon. You won't be disappointed!

Great location, fantastic hosts!

Had a magical week at God's Blessings! Perfectly located, we were able to watch the sun rise and set over the ocean (just a brief walk away!) from the crow's nest. Close to the grocery store, Hatteras Island/lighthouse, and the Ocracoke ferry. Jennifer and Blair are excellent hosts! They were friendly and quick to respond to any questions. The house is wonderfully laid out: plenty of space and things to do if the weather gets bad. Hot tub was a major plus! Would definitely stay again.

Honeymoon

From the beginning Blair and Jennifer were very easy to communicate with and quickly responded to e-mails. The honeymoon getaway couldn't have been more special and Blair and Jennifer saw to it that all was in perfect order - despite the fact that Hurricane Matthew had just roared through! The place was clean, everything was in working order and lovely - and they went above and beyond to make it extra special! Thank you Blair and Jennifer and God's blessings to you and your family!

Perfect.

It was a home away from home! So conveniently located near the grocery store and restaurants. The pool was perfect for a simple pool day and the hot tub was the perfect end to a cool evening. Beach access was close and the sunrise was a wonderful way to start the day. The fully loaded kitchen was a plus! Crock pot served it's purpose to the fullest with breakfast and dinners! We really enjoyed our stay at God's Blessings!

My Response
We're glad you had such a nice time on your vacation and at the house. When you're ready to head back to the Outer Banks, just let us know! Thanks, Jennifer and Blair

God's Blessings is a wonderful rental retreat!

We had a great time at the property and chose it because it had all the amenities we required (bedrooms, pool, hot tub, wifi, location). The owners kept in touch & answered all questions (our first time at OBX). We really enjoyed sightseeing, and stores, restaurants and gas were right around the corner. We visited the beach collecting seashells and absorbing the sounds of the ocean, etc. We also had adventures climbing the Cape Hatteras lighthouse and an awesome dinner at Dirty Dick's crab house. The home is beautifully decorated in beach themes and has all the comforts of home. The owners even left us a nice gift bag, which we loved, as it was our anniversary. We would love to visit again and will recommend this rental to our friends/family.

My Response
Hi Michael, We are so glad you came down to OBX and had a great time at enjoying the wonderful sights, relaxing beach, pool, and hot tub! Thank you for the compliments on the beach decor in the house and we're glad you enjoyed the welcome bag. It sounds like you had a fun anniversary and we hope you come back and celebrate at God's Blessings beach house again.

Beach get away

We had a relaxing family vacation here in August. The beach is so beautiful and we loved to go to the sound and watch the spectacular sun sets in the evening. It is a short distance to the ferry over to Ocracoke Island which is a wonderful place for a day trip. We spent the the day sightseeing and swimming at the gorgeous beach. Thank you Jennifer for sharing your home with us and being so helpful - giving us plenty of information and making sure our stay went well. It is obvious that the owners want to make their home comfortable and inviting for their guests. The food lion is just down the street and we tried the wonderful Bros sandwich shop. The lighthouse, fishing pier, and haul over are close by too. We liked to have a pool to swim in in the late afternoons and the kids enjoyed going swimming in the lighted pool at night. We made some great family memories. Lisa

My Response
Hi Lisa, We are so glad to hear you and your family had such a great time making memories together in the Outer Banks and at God's Blessings beach house! It''s a relaxing place to be able to get away from it all. Seeing those spectacular sun sets over the sound, swimming in the pool with your kiddos, and enjoying the beautiful beach all sound wonderful. Yes, God's Blessings is also nice and close to the grocery store, great restaurants, and the famous Cape Hatteras lighthouse. We're glad you enjoyed sightseeing and took the ferry to Ocracoke. Please come stay at God's Blessings beach house again in the future. Jennifer

Fantastic vacation

The house is very well equipped with a great pool, hot-tub, WI-fi, outdoor speakers, satellite TV etc. and is conveniently located a few minutes walk away from the beach. Having the pool is a great feature if you need a break from the beach. The house is nicely furnished with well positioned decks to allow al fresco dining all day. We would definitely go back to the same property. The owners were very helpful and accommodating and communication was excellent throughout. We took our 2 kids aged 11 & 9 and we all had a great time. Watching sunrise over the Atlantic and having fires on the beach (download a free permit in advance) were personal highlights!

Reunion with friends

Upon arrival to God's Blessings we were greeted with a gift of soaps and a note which was a nice personal touch. The house was very clean and organized with a book detailing house rules and information about the area. Overall, the description of the house was exactly as described with a open family area that is great for entertaining (direct tv, movies, and board games), a fully stocked kitchen, and 4 bedrooms with very comfortable beds. The house is about a 5 minute walk to the beach and easily accessible. Having the pool and hot tub was also a great option. Overall, it was a very warm and inviting beach house and our group would love to return in the future.

Wonderful house fully stocked with amenities

We had a wonderful family vacation staying here. The location was so peaceful! The house and kitchen was wonderfully stocked so that I could feed the family without having to go out all the time, though we also enjoyed a couple of the restaurants in town. The kids loved the pool, the hot tub and the foosball table. Though I brought cards and games with, there were quite a few to choose from in the house as well. Thank you for sharing your home with my family!
