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.”
