The view from the back deck was beautiful. We enjoyed being able to swim and fish right in the "backyard". The community pool was very nice. The only downside is that you do have to drive 10 plus minutes to find a public beach access. The only down side of the house for our family was the small steep spiral steps inside (we have small children). They had a gate at the top of the steps but not the bottom so we pretty much had to stay upstairs so the babies weren't continously trying to climb up them haha.

Otter's Run is a quaint, older home. If you are not looking for a top of the line, new or renovated home with a gorgeous view - Otter's Run is it! Rooms are smaller than they look in the photos, but they all worked out fine for us. We were a blended group of 6 adults and 2 children. Downstairs bathroom has a small shower, but a tub/shower combo upstairs and a large outdoor shower with hot/cold water (which we used a lot!). I'm not a gourmet cook, but I thought the kitchen was nicely stocked with dishes, pots, pans (might want to bring a non-stick skillet, the one there was badly scratched). Washer and dryer are in a closet in the front bedroom downstairs - took just a little coordination for us all, but it worked out fine. By far, the best part of this house is the VIEW! We sat outside just about every day/night enjoying it. Very relaxing! NOTE: Downstairs bedroom that faces the front yard has a double bed - I was told it was a queen but it's not...Queen bed in the waterfront downstairs bedroom and in the bedroom upstairs (other upstairs bedroom has 2 twins). Spiral staircase worked fine for the younger ones, us older folks had to move a bit slower going up and down, but it was ok (there is also an outside staircase that our disabled friend used). Again, it's a no frills house - but it worked great for us, and that view is just awesome. Also - use of the community pool was a real bonus!! I'd stay here again!

The house was perfect for out family of 4. We loved sitting on the deck over looking the sound every morning and evening. Great location away from the business of bypass and beach road but only 10 minute drive to beach access. There is perfect beach access once Colington Rd crosses hwy 12, it dead ends at parking lot with beach access, showers, bathrooms. The outdoor shower at the house was perfect after a day in the sand. close to everything we wanted to see. Billy's seafood on Colington Rd will steam and season your shrimp/seafood for you, it was excellent. We would stay here again. The week we were there it rained a lot so we spent extra time in the house, the kids loved the ping pong table and the kid sized pool table. Plenty of books to borrow and movies to watch. Plus netflix. We had a great time and the house was perfect for us.

Great family vacation, but our accommodations were lacking

Our house had a nice view overlooking the bay, but the drive to the house was over 10 minutes from the main strip. The house felt very cluttered and dirty, which greatly impacted our overall comfort level.

We couldn't be happier with this house. It was very spacious, the views are amazing. Relaxing, fishing and crabbing all afternoon after an entire day at the beach. This house has everything for every one, the kayaks +++, though we had to buy our own fishing poles at the local K-Mart. My 8 y/o son was sad to leave, he asked if we could stay for a whole month! I wish!!! Carolina Shores staff was great at checking in and checking out, easy process and very pleasant. We checked in Kitty Hawk office.

A few comments: 1) The house actually has a nice central A/C, which was not mentioned in property description. 2) Very nice crabbing from the back yard. A lot and big. The house provided a crab pot (one more will be great), a crab net and 2 buckets. I caught 2 dozens of big crabs 7:30pm-8:30pm using the crab net and a few hand lines tied to chicken leg quarters. 3) Not many bugs as expected. After reading a previous review, we brought a mosquito repellent lantern and some sprays, but didn’t use them except for evening outdoor stay. Of course, the weather was nice and dry during the week. I suggest removing 2 rain collecting pans, one in the back yard with plants growing and one on the 2nd floor deck with decoration stones, which are attracting/producing bugs with water in.
Dear Dechun,
Thank You for taking the time to review your stay at OTTER'S RUN.
We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the canal access for you and your family to crab!!
Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals looks forward to see you again in the future!!

The house was very nice. We prereserved for next year.

My family had a great time, it was their first trip to Outer Banks. They now know why I love it there. The kayaks were great to have to use. I was able to take my granddaughter kayaking for the first time. It is now on the agenda to get her one. There are just a couple things that would have made it super. There is no direct access from the main living area upstairs to the yard. The grill is really small and <br/>difficult to cook a meal for 8 people on. The cooking pans in the kitchen were minimal and I had to buy a baking pan to use in the oven because the grill was <br/>too small with no area to roast potatoes in foil. A very large supply of dishes, glasses, and silverware. Really great the owner supplied both glass/ceramic and plastic dinnerware.
Dear Julaine,
Thank you for the wonderful review of OTTER'S RUN! I will be happy to share your suggestions with this outstanding homeowner. She really does appreciate any suggestions made by her guests.
So you are now hooked on kayaking? That's great! Isn't it just a beautiful and relaxing experience?

What an amazing experience. First time on the sound and a week full of first time experiences. We crabbed for the first time (didn't have a clue). Kayaked for the first time(amazing). Took advantage of the community pool(breathtaking views), The Colington Café & The Salt Box café (make reservations). Ate tile fish & blue crab for the first time(superb). <br/>From coffee on the open deck in the large rocking chairs, mornings at the ocean(beach chairs were great), reading on the covered deck with a warm sound breeze while the babies napped(G'ma napped too!), afternoons at the community pool, kayaking (every time you could beat someone to them), late afternoon swim in the sound, evenings on the deck telling stories about the day to a comfortable bed to rest up & do it again. This house had everything you needed to make this a reality.<br/>The only thing that would have made this week better would have been another week. It was an amazing introduction to the Colington sound.<br/>Thank you for the opportunity to experience this amazing lifestyle.

This was our first time to OBX! We had a nice vacation. However when it comes to the house, it was a little inconvenient. The spiral staircase is the only inside way to go upstairs...Also I thought it would have been more convenient to have some sort of steps to go from upstairs deck to the back yard. <br/>The gas grill was filthy...full of grease from previous tenants. At first it would cook ok and then burst into flames. We had to pour water to save the food.A lot of food we finished cooking in the oven, because it almost be char black on the outside, but raw on the inside.<br/>The covers should be washed more often between tenants, as well as the decorative pillow cases. <br/> Overall it was a good stay :)

This house was perfect for a relaxing couples vacation. House amenities made the beach unnecessary-- perfect porch located 3 steps from the water. The neighborhood was so quiet and the neighbors were incredibly friendly! The electric in the house was not great-- both bathroom outlets did not work after using the home provided hairdryers once. Also, my straightening iron was shorted out from plugging it in to the wall, so I would be careful plugging valuable things into the walls directly without a surge protector. We look forward to renting this home again!

We just returned from our vacation at Otters Run. I was hoping for the best since there was only one review so far. The home was better than I expected. It was complete with everything we needed - super packed with enough plates, silverware, serving pieces, etc plus lots of other stuff - books, games,movies, crabbing, boogie boards, beach chairs. Beds were ok - some more comfy than others. The home is pretty well kept with great shore decorations, but the cleaning service could do a better job, especially in the bathrooms' inside toilet & shower liners. The view is outstanding & we spent a lot of time on the deck. The grill is gross & my husband wouldn't use it. The community is ok - quiet & out of the busy oceanside area. The ride to the beach was easy & parking was easy. Soundside beach is pleasant. The pool is good but odd - the lifeguard calls "adult swim" almost every hour or so. I'm guessing for 15 - 30 min but we didn't stick around. It's frustrating to have to keep the kids out of the pool when there's the same 3-4 adults in the pool as during "all swim". The sound in the back yard is fairly deep - a sign inside says it ranges from 3-8 ft but I didn't swim far enough out to find the more shallow area. Overall, a nice, peaceful vacation. The location is great for people who like to fish, boat, go crabbing.

Great location, beautiful views of the sound. Not meant for young children, even though there was a fixed safety gate at the top of a treacherously narrow metal staircase, our 15mo old repeatedly slid underneath it. There are also beautiful, yet lethally toxic Oleander trees hanging onto the deck, we had to be sure our little guy didn't mess with them. (Keep your pets away too!!) Rental agency was polite, helpful and readily available to tend to our needs. We will definitely use Carolina Shores again, maybe rent a different, more child friendly house next time.
