First vacation in a long time that I unpacked and put the suitcase away. There is plenty of storage, and I set up my stuff just like at home. Leftovers from restaurants could be brought home then heated up and eaten at a table.

The condo location is close to beaches, attractions, restaurants. The area is very relaxing, and the sunsets are gorgeous.

The dogs loved the screened in deck watching birds and squirrels. There are plenty of areas for nightly walks and clean-up bags are convenient to all areas.


The Lark was everything and more we expected and needed for our stay. It was well kitted out and decorated to a high spec. The location was good and within walking distance of the beach, although the weather wasn’t kind to us so we didn’t get to enjoy the sand and surf 😦

The Outer Banks is a great place to visit and would recommend The Lark to prospective visitors. It is a great central point to go north and south on the banks, with plenty of independent shops and restaurants near by. Lovely to see so few ‘chains’ of restaurants which meant branching out wasn’t difficult. The kitchen was stocked well enough to enjoy meals in too.

The addition of a few games were welcome; I’ve not played Scrabble in years!!!

Thanks for a wonderful stay.


Very comfortable condo with everything thought of down to the dvd’s, grocery store tags. Central location to all outer banks activities. Look forward to a return trip in the future.


We loved everything about our stay at The Lark, from the clean stylish rooms, to the relaxing back porch view of the bay. And we didn’t realise that the Kitty Hawk National Park (where the Wright brothers first took flight) was right next door!

Next time we will bring our bikes since there are miles of pedestrian/bike paths nearby and I bet there is a lot more to explore. But even walking the paths was nice.

Definitely a great place and we will stay again!


Overall great experience. The renters were very helpful in every aspect of our trip and always responded promptly to questions before and during vacation. The property itself was very clean and had many comforts of home such as a full kitchen with cookware, coffee maker (very important), toys, infant pack and play, board games, movies, and books.


This was my wife and I’s (as well as our puppy!) first trip to the OBX during the off-season, cool experience! The home was beautiful, lots of nice little-touches (dog bed included, variety of boardgames and DVDS). We came during a very cold time for the area, and brought along some frozen pipes with us! The owners were awesome, they worked with us with finding an option that worked for everyone. Extremely friendly over email and phone, the owners were VERY easy to communicate with, very quick replies. Overall, an excellent stay. If you are a regular to the OBX in the Summer, we definitely recommend taking a weekend and experiencing the off-season. The Lark is a cozy place, very close to the beach and Sound. Thanks Lisa and Tim, we had a great stay!

We really enjoyed our vacation and one big reason was our stay at The Lark. We felt at home there and fell in love with the king size bed. The owners have thought of everything someone might need right down to grocery savings cards. We had forgotten to pack a couple items and were so surprised when we found them in a closet. Our son said “it’s like they have everything ready for us!”. We definitely can’t wait for our next trip to The Lark!


Stayed at the Lark in mid June for a week.
Great accommodation and facilities.
Swimming pool really good and right beside the appartment.
Would definitely recommend this for families with kids of all ages.
