Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Doug.

We had a great time in Corolla. The weather cooperated although the surf was too rough for me to fish. The house was wonderful. Perfect for our families. We did have one small incident - one of the kids broke a pool stick. I apologize for that. Please let me know how much to replace it. One other comment - the front right burner on the stove was not working when we arrived. I made sure the coil was plugged into the stove but it still wouldn't heat up. Other than that, no problems.

Thanks again and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was amazing but the management company needs to find a new cleaning agency. The floors were absolutely filthy with dirt, sand and hair; we had multiple beds that were not changed and actually had sand in them; we weren't given any kitchen hand towels or dish rags and didn't have sheets for the bunk beds. I will say that with a call to the rental company our linen and bed issues were resolved. The house was supposed to have a gaming system and it was not there...the playstation games were there but no game console. The house also has a basketball hoop, but no basketball. The downstairs TV in the bunk-bedroom has issues with channel changing and volume and the right front burner on the stove only heats when it wants to. These things were minor. Like I said, the house itself was absolutely just needs a new cleaning company. We loved the close proximity to the beach walkway and shopping. The pool and hot tub were great and we enjoyed the porches and swing. The wild horse tour that the rental company recommended was awesome along with the Currituck lighthouse and the trip to Roanoke Island. We will definitely return!

House nice but dirty

  • 3 of 5

The house itself was amazing. The cleanliness of the home not so great...floors were filthy, multiple beds were not changed and actually had sand in them, dead flys stuck on the walls, dirt and sand in the tubs. Without the cleaning issues I would give the house a 5 star rating. Some other small issues: The house was supposed to have a gaming system and did not...the playstation games were there but the console was missing. There was a basketball net and no basketball and the right front unit on the stove worked inconsistently...sometimes would heat and other times wouldn't not even get warm. Several of the bathrooms lack trash cans. We also weren't given any kitchen towels or dish rags initially and the bunk beds were not made and didn't have linen for them. The office staff were very friendly and helpful and made arrangements for linens to be brought. We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach walkway, horse tour recommended by the office, Currituck lighthouse and a visit to Roanoke Island. Corolla is amazing and we will definitely return!
