About Pirate's Cove Realty
A travel writer of destination guides and books, I reside in Sydney Australia. I love little villages like Manteo where I grew up and my haunts are usually near water -- beaches if I can get to them.
Why Pirate's Cove Realty chose Manteo
The house has been in my family for more than 40 years and I grew up on this street (in a different location) attending the local schools. I'm a 9th generation Roanoke islander.
What makes this Cottage unique
In the summer, I love walking with my granddaughter, 'JB' to the Saturday morning Farmers' Market where we share a danish and cold drinks and pick out great NC produce. 'JB' loves the weather tower and we check it often. Walking to Poor Richard's for breakfast (love those grits) and reading the Wall Street Journal online, of course. WiFi is available along the waterfront boardwalk. Browsing at local galleries -- the old courthouse gallery is charming. Sitting along the dockside late afternoons -- great views of Shallowbag Bay and all the sailboats make for great relaxation. Walk to Festival Park (2 minute walk) for summer entertainment -- take low chairs or a beach towel -- food/beverage allowed. Many performances are for kids. Granddaughter, 'JB' loves them all.

Trip with MOM
Lovely home. Had a great time. Washing machine was not working properly , called the management personal Brandon. He was very attentive about getting it looked at. Very happy with overall property. Brandon was a gem, thank you for all your help with me and my Mom's concerns. Would definitely call you again in the future.
Much bigger than expected.
This property was much bigger than expected. There were 2 bedrooms and a large kitchen plus a Den, living room, laundry area, and small library. Also a large yard was available. The location was perfect.
Love this small town and cozy home!
My friend and I returned to the Baum house for a second time this year, for our girls' weekend. We love the location and the small town walk-ability; along with access to Duck, and southern OBX towns (since it's located in between). Beds are super comfy, linens are nice! It's a very comfortable place away from home. We love it!
This is a delightful house; so much charm and character and quite comfy, too! We came for a wedding at the beach and got Blue Grass music as a bonus. Thanks for sharing your home.
Sounds like a great weekend. So glad you enjoyed the house also! Thanks for responding.
Great location and lots to do.
I am sorry we did not meet your expectations. Do you have some suggestions for us, particularly as to how we describe the house on Vrbo?
Baum House on Roanoke Island
This was better than we expected. Very clean, well kept cottage in Manteo. Within walking distance of so many fun things, and also just minutes drive to other beach activities in Nags Head and Kitty Hawk. All the local businesses were so nice and welcoming. When we come back to the area this will be the first place we will see if it is available.
Thanks so much for your review and that the house exceeded your expectations. And yes, Roanoke Islanders can be really welcoming -- it's a Southern thing! I hope you will return in the future -- Manteo is a great spot to relax.
