Come Play Hooky...

Transport back to childhood when the thrill of getting away from your responsibilities could be as simple as ‘playing hooky’. Feel your shoulders drop as soon as you leave the hard road to drive right next to the push and pull of the gorgeous, blue ocean.

Playing Hooky boasts all the amenities you can think of, for the relaxation and enjoyment of all ages. The game room, located on the entry level, and has a pool table, kitchenette, flat screen tv with receiver, blu-ray player and Bose speaker surround sound, pub table and chairs, full bath and a large, comfortable seating area for entertaining. A duo bunk and twin bedroom on this level is perfect for the kids retreat, or a 4 person family. Outside is the huge pool with picnic table and zero gravity chaise lounge chairs as well as a cabana bath and outside shower.

The laundry room and three bedrooms are on the next floor: one is a king master, the other two kings with a shared bath. All upper and mid level bedrooms are equipped with every comfort as well as wall mounted Directvs. Step outside for the cool ocean breeze on the screened porch, which overlooks the pool and has a 6 person hot tub and dining table. Sip a frosty beverage while watching the spectacular evening sky, or watch the children swimming in the pool below. The hot tub's location in the screened porch means no annoyance from flying pests while you soak.

Unwind as you top the stairs of the upper level. The lovely leather furniture, half bath and comfortable spaces are outdone only by the stunning ocean views. The fifth bedroom, a queen master with bath is also located on this level. Just past the island with seating for three is the well-equipped kitchen, with everything you will need to create a delicious meal. Nice quality flatware and place settings will create a beautiful table for 12.

Through the dining area is the bright and inviting sun-room equipped with card table and upholstered chaise for your lounging pleasure. Step through the sun-room to the west onto a wonderful sun deck with views of the Currituck Sound. Step through the sun-room to the east for spectacular ocean views and decking with picnic table, outdoor seating and access to another level of decking above, the crow’s nest deck located on the roof. Take your favorite cool beverages to the crow’s nest and let all your cares blow away as you enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the built in seating. Look to the south for a view of the Currituck Lighthouse beacon and the Fourth of July fireworks at Heritage Park. Come and Play Hooky for a thoroughly relaxing retreat, and let this wonderful home free you from all of your cares.

    James H from Centreville, MD recommends this vacation rental

    We had a nice visit to Playing Hooky. Overall we had a good impression. The house is designed well and is in a great location up the beach. It does need some attention to get it in top shape as most rentals do. The property management company was very responsive to our requests and we appreciated their efforts to rectify any issues that came up during our stay.

    • Manager Responded on 8/16/2017

      Thank you for your review. We sure did have a minute of panic there when the sheets weren't on the beds. But finding them untouched in the linen bucket at least made it easy to rectify. THANKS for your patience with that. I hope you will come again.

    Our vacation at Playing Hooky was amazing!! We will stay here again. Owners were very responsive when the wifi wasn't working. We saw the wild horses every day along with deer and a few foxes! Oh and lots of frogs that my 5 year old loved!!! House has everything you need. Beds were super comfy (which isn't usually the case). Amazing ocean views and sunset views at night!! Nothing but fabulous things to say!

    • Manager Responded on 7/18/2017

      THANK you for the wonderful review. We like those beds so much we got the same brand for our house! PLEASE come and visit again. The frogs want to play some more!

    Bradley S from Mooresville, North Carolina recommends this vacation rental

    This was my first trip to the 4wd beaches and I couldn't be happier with the treatment I received from David and Laura. The house was clean and exactly where and how it was described. Even with a couple of days of hard rain and wind Playing Hooky had everything in the home to make this an enjoyable trip despite the weather. The kitchen was great for someone who loves to cook and the view from the top deck was amazing. Horses, deer, and foxes in the yard almost daily.

    a guest from Greenlawn, NY recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time in OBX. The house was nice but not as big as the pictures showed. Definitely would not have more than 10 people in the home. The pool and hot tub were perfect. The only minor negative was how far away we were from food store, shopping,restaurants etc. It took about 20 minutes to drive on beach to get to the paved road and then 10 mins from there so if you needed a quick trip to food store took a long time. But if you are looking for a house on the beach with beautiful views and seclusion this is your place. Overall we had a great time!!

    a guest from Hockessin, Delaware recommends this vacation rental

    The house was clean, except for the hot tub, which was full full of mildew.
    Our stay was good. But the owner told us we could park our non 4x4 car in a public lot. When we arrived, we saw signs saying no overnight parking. I spoke to the police who told us cars get vandalized there. So, we paid (not very much) to park in a lot, and when I told the owner we would appreciate being reimbursed, rather than just saying "no", she responded with hostility.
