This place has a great view and beach access. We enjoyed the house and thought it was clean and had the basics that we needed.The 1st night we were there several really bad storms came thru that knocked out our enternet. I called the next day and they came quickly to fix. However, with it being a pet friendly home i would have like to seen gates at the stairways and beach stairs.( prob safer for kids also) also a partian between renter with it being a duplex.We were lucky enough to have not had neighbors during our stay. it does have a flat roof and with any amount of rain it drans off really bad onto the deck where you have to play musical chairs not to get wet.. It overall is very comfortable and would consider renting again if i were not taking my dog .
We are pleased you enjoyed living on the beach. It’s too bad your week had so much rain. We intend to improve the roof situation this winter. Do come back. It was a pleasure having you stay with us!
This is a difficult review to write. First off, the deck of the house is wonderful. It allows for easy access and wonderful views of the beach. However, I cannot say the same about the inside of the house. When reserving Lazy Haven I realized from the pictures that this was not a 'fancy' place and the owners themselves alluded to that. I was not interested in staying at a place with exquisite furnishings with extras like a swimming pool, hot tub etc. However, I did expect things to be functional and in good working order. Showers were not clean and didn't work properly. Expecting a shower that drains properly, has a consistent spray and easy to use knobs is not 'fancy' in my book. None of us felt comfortable or clean after using the shower in the main bathroom. We had to get maintenance out the first day to repair light fixtures, replace eyes on the stove and assist with getting the cable system to work. These repairs didn't just happen in a week and were not due to breakages from the previous week's renters. These were issues that should be noticed and taken care of throughout the rental season either by the rental company or the owners. Kitchen was woefully ill equipped and what was available was not in good working order. For example, there were 2 hand operated can openers but neither one worked. We were very lucky that there was minimal rain during our stay as we all primarily "lived" on the deck. It would not require a ton of money to make the inside as wonderful as the outside. I could not recommend Lazy Haven to anyone.
The most amazing view! That's all you need!
I have to start this out by saying you could pay more for a more updated or fancier house on the inside, but this house is perfect for the price. All you need is an amazing view and this home has it. We stayed from late May 4th-May 9th and every morning we got up early, sat on the deck with our coffee & watched dolphins swim by! Our final day there was a good 8-10 dolphins early in the morning then again in the later morning that hung around. We also had the amazing & rare opportunity to see a shark! We spent all of our time on the deck or beach, so a little TV late at night & sleeping is all we went inside for. Bring toilet paper, paper towels, coffee, etc for your stay (sheets/towels for shorter stays). The beds are comfy enough, everything worked good.
The other side of the duplex was empty our entire stay, which is unfortunate for the owners, but it was so nice to have the entire quiet deck to ourselves,though we only used our side except when it rained once as our side had a few spots where water ran off the roof and splattered all over for hours after.
If I can recommend anything, bring a taller deck chair or two. Also bring Magic Mesh or something to use as a door screen as there are no screen doors to keep the few bugs outside from getting in if you open the door and none of the living room windows have screens (only two small side ones open, but we didn't want to risk letting bugs in their home.) We hit Walmart and they were out of the portable screens-no biggie-Just kept the door closed. If I had found the wooden chairs for sale before our final day I would have bought them and left them for others to enjoy as the others are lower and the top of the deck cuts a little into the view. They're very relaxing and comfortable though. The taller chairs are obviously not a necessity, but would come in handy.
This was the first vacation me, my sister, my mom, my teen niece and my daughter had together. We came for my daughter's ECU graduation from Illinois. Everyone was so helpful with all of my annoying questions, very friendly throughout the booking process to check in, to random questions. Don't pay a bunch more because the house may not be up to your standards on the inside. It's roomy enough and functional for everything you need and for the price. Thank you for allowing us to use your home during our stay. We treated it as our own as it deserves. Bless you. We are hoping to be able to come back at least once a year for family time.
Thank you for your kind review and helpful suggestions. You were a delightful guests!
Location! Location! Location!
The location for this property can't be beat, its right on the beach and in a very quiet part of the island. It is also pet friendly. Now for the now so good, the property is very much in need of some TLC and renovations. Some of the things that went wrong (no internet ) were not the owners fault and we dealt with it until the repairman came and the lack of linens when we first arrived was also not that tragic. However, the fact that we were not able to use the master shower ( the whole stay) because the door was broken and the deck overhang that leaked after each rain and made the deck unusable was not quite as forgivable. In addition, the property was not cleaned when we arrived.and the cleaners who came the next day, said the floors had not been cleaned. Also, after we could not get in the house one afternoon found out we did not have keys to one of doors, or the key to the top lock on the other door. The trip did make us want to buy our own property in that area.
We are glad you enjoyed being right on the beach. As for the house, there were no linens when you arrived as you asked to check in early. The realtor allowed you to do so. The house had been cleaned. When you reported a problem area, the realtor sent the cleaning crew out to take care of it. The realtor also quickly repaired the shower door so it was usable. As for the deck, it is huge, with much of it not under the overhang so some dripping should not have been a problem. Renters always love our giant deck. We hope, despite your disappointments, you had fun living at the beach and made lots of good times for yourself resulting in lots of happy memories.
Great location, actual living space needs lots of attention.
Being right on the beach was incredible and the big deck was also very nice! The inside needs a lot of TLC. It was very dirty. There were stains on the ceiling, the bathrooms had a ton of staining in tub, sink, and toilet so it made it seem like they were not clean. The whole place smelled very dank and musty. The dishwasher worked great as well as the washer and drier. We did find three pretty huge cockroaches during our stay, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. The bedrooms were nice enough, beds moderately comfortable. I hope this house receives the attention in needs because it is in a prime location.
We plan on doing some major improvements to the house this winter. We hope you had great weather and a fun filled vacation.
Million dollar view from the updated deck. Home could use some tlc.
Home could use some tlc. Linen company never picked up previous dirty linens. Home was left cleaner when we left than when we arrived. Would stay again view was wonderful and enjoyed the new deck and parking underneath. Had a great week of beautiful weather!
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at the beach. We will work with our cleaning company to improve their efforts. Thank you for your care of our home. We look forward to your return in the future!
