The house was PERFECT. Everything we needed was there. The movie selection was amazing, the space and layout of the house fit our group of 3 families well. The pool, hot tub all in great condition and clean. We really loved the house and location and we will definitely be back!

The games and movies were great and much appreciated. The house overall is nice and pleasing to the eye. Plenty of seating for large groups. View and location is wonderful. 

Laura K , 08/04/2018

LOVED this house. It is beautifully decorated and spacious and open. This is the first rental property in which I felt like they had everything you could need. We did not lack anything.
They even had vegetable peelers and tea pitchers:)
I fell in love with house...I keep telling my husband I want to build it at home for us. LOVED the family room rug!!! AMAZING selection of movies.....someone is super organized to have everything you would need inside a categorized notebook. The connect four game was a fun bonus! Hot tub is nice! Definitely fell in love with this property!!!!!! My favorite rental property EVER!!!! Keyless entry is also a nice option.

Scott A , 03/31/2018

The home is so well equipped and maintained. The movies, games, puzzles, and books add to the experience and we are grateful for the time the owners take to catalog and maintain those items. Thank you!

Lesley S , 03/24/2018

F.K. - stayed 11/11/17

They thought of everything. A delightful home.

M.B. - stayed 09/09/17

Overall we had a great time at the house. We liked the house provided nightlight and light switch labels. The kids enjoyed the large selection of movies.

P.S. - stayed 07/15/17

It was a great help to have nightlights in bathrooms, etc. Also helpful to have light switches marked and all the appliance manuals available. The enormous, and organized,collection of DVD's and books was amazing. Our granddaughter said it was her favorite house that we've stayed at. It worked well for our family.

J. B. - stayed 06/24/17

Overall we had a wonderful week and a wonderful experience. Nags Head Outer Banks will definitely be our vacation spot again. We loved our week with you.

J.J. - stayed 5/27/17
Beautiful home. Thank you for allowing us to truly find "Our Happy Place." We will be returning.

L.S. - stayed 4/8/17
Thank you for providing such a well stocked home. You have thought of every detail from the movie library to the laundry baskets in each closet to the spray cleaner! It is obvious you love and care for your home and that you care your guests have a good vacation. We were so happy with our stay!

A.B. - stayed 06/25/16

This home has all of the amenities you need for a great stay in the Outer Banks! The pool area is perfect - very well maintained and five feet deep with nice seats on the sides. Everyone loved it!  Easy access to the beach and great views from the front and back!

R. G. - stayed 10-10-15

We loved the location of this home and were impressed with the cleanliness. We noticed details such as excellent lighting throughout the house, and an extensive video and book collection. There is a binder with detailed information that helped us enjoy our stay. We had beautiful views all over the house, and many deck options. We've stayed in over a dozen homes in the Outer Banks, and this by far has been our favorite. This is the first time we've used Joe Lamb and got a text letting us know that the home was ready early.

Vickie M.- Stayed 09/12/15

You will love the views!

Kerry V.- Stayed 08/01/15

Our Happy Place certainly lives up to it's name! The deck provided gorgeous views of the sunrise, the beach and the ocean. The wide uncrowded beach was wonderful. We watched dolphins nearly every day. The pool and hot tub were thoroughly enjoyed daily. We plan to return next year, can't wait!!

Maura D.- Stayed 07/25/15

Comfortable rental, pool, grounds, out door shower and hot tub very well taken care of. 

Dorene G.- Stayed 07/11/15

Best rental on the Outer Banks. Highly recommend Our Happy Place. Planning a return trip in 2017.

Larry F.- Stayed 06/27/15

The pool area was great. The kids enjoyed the game room on the first floor. We had an enjoyable time. Thank you.

Richard R. - stayed 04/04/15

Very nicely decorated and furnished. Exceptional amount of books and videos! Love the high chairs on the deck. Wonderful view, dolphins every day. Great bedding and floor plan.

Edith G. - Stayed 08/16/14

We stayed there last year too - there have been some great improvements in the facilities and in the decor. It really is a wonderful place for our group (ages 20 months to 92 years) to stay.

Matthew B. - Stayed 07/12/14

Our Happy Place is just that! We had a great time on our 2014 vacation and this home was a big reason. From the kitchen overloaded with supplies to the board games and books and also the movie selection, this was a great home. Also, the pool area was one of the best we have seen. We loved Our Happy Place and hope to visit again soon. Thanks!!

Barbara C. - Stayed 5/17/14

This is a very nice home,all the pleasures of home.you won't be disappointed

Betty R - Stayed 5/10/14

Loved the house! Very well appointed. Had a lot of knick knacks, so not much room for guests to put their own items. Great location to ocean. Loved the pool, etc. We loved looking at all the pictures and signs (art) in the house. Great books and movies too! Beds were comfortable but could use another king rather than queen. Everything was clean and comfortable!!!!! This house was listed as 3 levels but should be listed as four.

Mgr. Note:  Owner took Betty's suggestion and replaced a queen with a king bed! 


We've rented on the Outer Banks for over twenty years and Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates is definitely the most customer oriented and welcoming to guests, even texting vacationers when their rental is ready. I will continue to use Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates for all my vacation rentals and will recommend JL to anyone who asks. Karen L.

Our wonderful vacation would not be possible without the great people at Joe Lamb we very much appreciate all the work that you all do for us. You made a middle-aged hard-working couple feel like kids again full of joy and happy memories. I cried all the way across the bridge when we left yesterday. Thank you so much again and please take care. Tracey T.

Everyone that I spoke with in your office on Saturday, Aug 29 was delightful. I sat there for two hours, and we sparked up conversations every chance that we got. Great group of girls. I really enjoyed talking to them. We had a wonderful stay! The property was perfect and so was working with Joe Lamb! Vickie B.

We can't wait to get back to the Outer Banks, (our second home and the place where we have made so many memories.) You can count on our entire family continuing the September tradition of Joe Lamb for many more years to come. And your concern and care is one of the reasons we keep coming back.- Ann F.

Just keep doing what you do! We tried another company once. Never again! Jay P.

The team at Joe Lamb are family friendly and are committed to providing a clean, comfortable, enjoyable stay for vacation. My wife and I highly recommend JL for vacations in the Outer Banks. Benjamin C. - stayed June 2016

Thank You Joe Lamb for your outstanding Customer Service ~! J.A. -

I just want to give you 5 stars on rental service in the Nags Head area. Hoping we are able to rent it again next year my daughter in law has her name in on the list:) Its been my 6th trip to Nags head in as many years and NEVER has there been any issues or anything unsatisfactory. Thanks for all you do to have made my experience with Joe Lamb Rentals 100% all the time! Marilyn W. 

While we come to the Outer Banks every year, if not more than once a year, this was our first time coming to the Outer Banks for Thanksgiving, and our first time using Joe Lamb. Joe Lamb was one of the best, most attentive companies that we've ever used. Everyone had such a great attitude, when it could have been easy to be stressed out around the holidays. The home was PERFECT for our group and for us to spend Thanksgiving in. It was actually beyond our expectations. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped. We will definitely be renting not only from Joe Lamb again, but likely this house!  Jade F. - stayed 11/19/16

 N.W. staying  August 2017 ..... I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to your management for being honest about the beach nourishment project. I distinctly remember learning about this project from your website in early summer of 2016. The project was clearly marked and not "hidden" under several sub-categories on your website. This gave me several months to research and determine whether we should reserve a home for the summer of 2017. We did, in fact, decide to continue with our plans and booked a house for this summer. I am very appreciative of how forward your company has been with the news of this project. I have observed that most (and possibly all other) OBX rental companies have not chosen to be honest until the news became widespread. I'm hopeful that we will have an uninterrupted vacation when we arrive, but even if we are a bit inconvenienced, I know that it won't change our view of your company. Thank you.

We have been vacationing in OBX since 1986 and have stayed in many houses through several different agencies. This was our best experience.  It was an absolutely wonderful week! -M.M. - stayed 5/14/17

I thank your company for suppling our family with a clean, wonderful, well located cottage for our vacation. We had one of the best times of our many OBX vacations. (Began as a child I am now 64) -  Ben W.

 I have been using Joe Lamb jr. for years, and cannot say enough good things about their office staff, maintenance crews, etc. Everyone is top notch. No matter what home we stay in, Joe Lamb Jr. always makes the experience a great one for our family  - Bob M. 

JLR staff exceeded our expectations with the booking of your property and even the woman who came to check the pool midweek was incredibly pleasant. Their keeping your guests happy! - Karla H. - stayed July 2017

The Joe Lamb employees are always respectful and helpful. I like dealing with this company. - Janice R. stayed 07/29/17 

We have taken annual family vacations to Nags Head for over 30 years. This was our first experience renting from Joe Lamb. We were so impressed with the professionalism and courtesy during every interaction we had with staff. They were so responsive and pleasant. We have already decided to use Joe Lamb for future rental homes. - Patricia W. - stayed 8/26/17

We just wanted to thank you for your help in having a great vacation in the Outer Banks. We rented Santopia (052) in Nags Head through your agency. The whole rental process -- reservation, check-in, check-out, linen rental, etc. -- was so easy. You guys are great at what you do! Thanks so much! - Michael N. - stayed 9/23/17

We have used many companies in the 20 yrs we have been coming to the outer banks and we like this company the best. - Kim K. stayed 2017

We have used Joe Lamb, Jr. exclusively and have always been extremely satisfied. This is a top notch organization and it shows in all areas.Victoria P. stayed 2019

If you're going to spend your good money at OBX, get a premium rental. Joe Lamb Jr. has rental a for every family size and budget. If a professional staff important to you, go Joe Lamb Jr. If having a variety of rentals is important to you, go Joe Lamb Jr. If you're renting at the OBX, GO JOE LAMB JR. !! - T.
