House was as described - actually a little larger than we expected, and with some supplies on hand (dishtowels; dish soap; bar soap; blankets - but bring your own sheets). Kitchen was over-stocked with plates, mugs, cutlery and appliances (3 blenders?!) Neighborhood is quiet and friendly. A/C, internet and large appliances all worked fine.Guests, beware a few things:* Yard and driveway flood when it rains. (See attached picture - that's a neighbor kid kayaking on west side of the yard.) House stayed dry, though.* The stairs have a very low overhang that can knock the block off anyone over 5' tall. Keep the lights on and a hand in front of you when descending the stairs!* The home has 3 televisions but no radios - next time I'd bring my own to follow local news.* Entryways from porch and east side of home have no floor mats - would be useful when rainy.We're going to take a year off from the OBX but would like to return sometime in the future and would definitely consider staying at Diabando again.
