PROPERTY Description

Reel Escape is a 1.5 bedroom condo located in Manteo, North Carolina. The unit is located in popular Pirates Cove Resort and is central to everything that the Outer Banks has to offer. Reel Escape Sleeps 3. (1Q, 1T)

During your stay at Reel Escape, you can wake up each morning and take a morning stroll around the resort to admire the hundreds of boats docked along the waters. After enjoying the 4 mile boardwalk around the resort you can sip your morning coffee overlooking the water. When you're ready to venture out, you can head to the beaches of Nags Head (a 5 minute car ride) or to downtown Manteo for some of the cutest and most unique shopping on the Outer Banks. Don't feel like leaving the resort? Spend the day lounging by the pool and step over to Mimi's Tiki Hut at Pirates Cove Marina for lunch al fresco. If you need some afternoon activity, enjoy a tennis match or a game of pickle ball before freshening up for dinner. You may want to pick up some seafood from any of the nearby seafood markets, or you may feel like trying one of the *many* delicious local restaurants with a water view that is within a stones throw of Reel Escape. Your options are endless when you stay at our unit, and we know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

One of the features you will love most about our property is that it is centrally located between all your favorite OBX attractions. Jockey's Ridge, The Lost Colony, Roanoke Island Festival Park, Wanchese Seafood Industrial Park (it doesn't get any fresher!), The Wright Brothers Memorial, Jet Ski / Kayak Rentals, and Cape Hatteras are just a few of the Outer Banks attractions you can easily access from Reel Escape. Not sure where to start? That's okay! We have a personalized guide that is kept in the unit with a collection of our favorite Outer Banks experiences for you to try.

Since Reel Escape is a smaller condo, we often get inquiries from guests who are choosing between us and a hotel room. There are many advantages to choosing an independent vacation rental over a hotel. We have listed some of them below for your reference:

-Our full kitchen enables you to cook meals when you would otherwise have to dine out. The average traveler spends approximately $45/day dining out, which can add up to significant savings for a week long stay!

-Reel Escape is larger than a typical hotel room and has more privacy. With a separate living room, porch, bedroom, and kitchen - there is plenty of room to spread out during your stay.

-We have a washer and dryer inside our unit and even provide laundry detergent for your convenience! (Anyone else hate using the same dirty beach towel for an entire week?)

-Hotels typically have basic cable and charge big fees for any additional entertainment. At Reel Escape, we have an extended cable package as well as a Smart TV with a complimentary Netflix subscription.

-Amenities! No hotel in the Outer Banks offers the type of amenities that Pirates Cove Resort does. By choosing Reel Escape, you enjoy access to a pool, hot tub, baby pool, tennis courts, volleyball courts, bocce courts, a huge fitness center, picnic area, walking trails, an onsite restaurant and tiki bar, convenience store, marina, AND MORE!

-Last but certainly not least --- We truly want our guests to have an awesome stay. This is our home away from home, and we try to do everything we can to make your time here perfect.

We enjoyed our condo! Decorated nicely and the right amount of space for the two of us!
We love Pirates Cove! This was our 7th visit back and it NEVER gets old!! We’ve been visiting since 1995! Our favorite places to eat were Ortega’s (ask for Johnny) in Manteo and Millers Seafood on beach road; GREAT SERVICE and DELICIOUS FOOD!! Kill Devil Grill and Blue Water Grill were also good! We also LOVE and ENJOY Coquina Beach; so very clean and away from the “business” of Nags Head!! It’s only a little over 5 miles from PC and sooooo worth going too!! Our visit was 8/19/18-8/26/18; one of the BEST vacations!! Weather was just about PERFECT!!
