Week at Jewel of Denial exceeded all expectations
"My wife and I just enjoyed a wonderful week at your Jewel of Denial home. This was arranged for our entire family of 18 (the two of us, our three children and their spouses, and our 10 grandchildren) by our son/wife Jonathan and Kim Wiley (week of May 30 – June 6). This far surpassed our expectations and provided us a wonderful setting for our week together as a total family. My wife and I commented several times that we don’t know how any facility could have met our needs any better. And our son/wife that worked with the owner shared what a delight she was to work with as well. We also felt very blessed to have the brief connection with your Elan staff at your luncheon when we met our son/wife there to get the “keys” for the week.
So our total experience from beginning to end was super positive. And we want to commend you, your staff, and the owner of the house for providing such a delightful setting for our wonderful week together as a family."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was clean.
I was happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This house has great setup if you have dogs and is also very nice for multiple adult couples who want privacy. The only problem was that the house was not clean when we got there after 4pm, so we had to wait outside with all of our stuff while the cleaner (just one person for such a large house) cleaned the entire house. The location to the beach was a problem for me. You have to cross rte 12 which at times can be challenging and then it's a good hike to the beach. If you want close to the beach this is not an ideal location. If you don't care about the beach the location is great for going to Duck, Corolla, or Kitty Hawk/Nags Head."

"Thank you Scott and Gretchen for sharing your beautiful home with us!! We were blessed with fantastic hot sunny weather all week. Your home is beautiful and very well equipped! It was very nice to have the washer and dryer, as well as the broom and dust pan! :) (How we could still track in sand in spite of rinsing outside us beyond me). We appreciated the beach umbrella and chairs, and the kitchen had everything we needed. If we ever return to the OBX we will definitely consider your home. Thank you also for your great communication and helpful hints!!
