Our Guests

Read what our guests have to say about their stay at our beach house, Dragonfly Dunes!

What a great way to end the summer!

Thank you. The house is great and the yard is beautiful. The weather was perfect. What a great way to end the summer.

We couldn’t have picked a better house…

We came for the 100th anniversary of the Wright Flight. We went to the park on Tuesday the 16th of December. The weather was ideal; sunny and a nice breeze. Unfortunately, on the 17th (the anniversary) the weather was rainy and cold. Instead of standing in the rain, we watched the festivities from the house. All the planes flew right overhead! We couldn’t have picked a better house. Your home is the perfect size for our family. Thank you for the great stay.

Great place and wonderful owners!

My family have stayed at Lisa & George’s 3 times. Loved it. My daughter got engaged there and went back the following year on their honeymoon.They had a gift certificate to eat out waiting on them with a bottle of non-alcoholic wine. It was great! Great Place to be and wonderful owners. Headed back in 09!!It’s the place to go, beautiful weather and lots to do in the area… HIGHLY recommend this house!!

Cozy, clean and comfortable! 

This place is just as it appears in the photos. It was clean and comfortable. The rooms were nice sized, including a very large bathroom. The location was great. We especially appreciated the ample, comfortable seating in the living room. It was well appointed, and well maintained. The neighborhood was quiet. And Lisa was very easy to work with! We came down for a girl’s getaway, and would definitely stay here again.

Perfect family-friendly house! 

We LOVED staying at the Dragonfly Dunes with our 2 small kids. The house was the perfect size, super clean and cozy for our family. Lots of comforts of home. The beach access is walking distance. Loved sitting on the porch swing. Plan on booking again this year.

Great Get-Away! 

Our family of 5 stayed here for a short get-away vacation, and it was perfect. The home is spacious and clean, and the location is ideal. It is an easy walk to the beach, dinner, and putt-putt golf. The street is well-maintained & quiet, & the kids enjoyed biking around the neighborhood. We highly recommend Dragonfly Dunes!

Fall Get-A-Way 

My life-long BFF & I just took a Fall get-a-way to the Outer Banks and stayed in this home. It was like staying at a relative’s house, but without them being there. (teeheehee) The house is warm, cozy, and stocked with the everyday supplies that anyone could possibly need. The house is in an EXCELLENT location, walking distance to the beach, a great restaurant (Goombays … try the Jazzy Chicken .. your taste buds will explode), and all of the fun shopping on the island. There’s a traffic light at the main intersection at First St., making getting in & out of the neighborhood easy & safe. Rather than one of the mega-mansions on the island, this house will give you an “authentic Outer Banks” experience. This is what going to OBX is supposed to be like. Beach Nostalgia at its best. Miller’s (on the beach road) had a great breakfast too. There were only 2 of us girls, so we each had our own queen sized bed (& bathroom) to ourselves, but the house could sleep up to 8 if you needed. It was post-season, so we didn’t take advantage of many of the “extras” that are provided by the owners. But I would recommend this cottage to anyone, during any season.

Adorable Home, Perfect Location 

We were fortunate to find this charming home on VRBO for a last-minute trip to the Outer Banks. I refer to it as a “home” not a “rental unit” because it is obviously well-loved and well-maintained by the Hockman family, and has all of the comforts of a real home. It is located a block away from the beach access, a quick 5 minute walk. We had everything we needed, from beach wagon, toys, bikes, video/games, etc. Although we had to leave a day early due to Hurricane Earl bearing down (mandatory evacuation), Lisa made good on her policy and refunded that portion of our payment with no questions asked. If you are looking for a “home away from home” in the Outer Banks, you can’t go wrong with Dragonfly Dunes!

Charming and clean 

Dragonfly Dunes was just what the doctor ordered. Great location, easy access to the beach. It’s very charming and cleaner than an operating room. Perfect for my family of four.

Beautiful cottage. My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and it was just what we wanted. Close to the beach and restaurants. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you Hockmans. We had a wonderful time.
