Poor communication with the owner and several things not working

  • 1 of 5

The location is great and the house is nice, but the communication with the owner was less than desirable. When we arrived we found out one of the dishwashers didn't work, the cleaning people did a subpar job (I will spare all of the details), the grill didn't work, etc. I reached out to the owner. He didn't call back for another day. He was not willing to do anything for the cleaning. He asked us to go find a part to fix the grill. On the last day we were there someone showed up to look at the dishwasher and washing machine. The dishwasher will hopefully be fixed for the next guests. He was slow to respond and basically said sorry but nothing else. I also reached out about our deposit getting returned and he slowly responded about that. He said it would go out on a Monday and then when I had still not seen the check he said it went out on a Tuesday. I think a phone call, an offer to refund a little bit of money for cleaning (we asked for this and he never responded about it), or a little hand written note would have gone a long way--instead of days of waiting around for him to return calls or texts and then very abrupt and unfriendly responses. We will not be returning. Again, the location and house were nice, but the experience with the owner was less than desirable.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you felt we were not available. We have many returning guests and are always willing to listen and address any concerns and recommendations. We have had the same cleaning service for 10 years. If we had known of any issues the same day as you arrived they would be more than willing to come back and address them. A previous renter mentioned an issue with the gas grill and how they fixed it. We were just relaying that information till we could make repairs. We had put in a service call for the one dishwasher to be repaired. The call for the washing machine was for routine maintenance. Soon as we are notified of any issues we put in a service request with our home warranty service the same day. As always our guest are our highest priority.

Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at footprints. Our family of 19 were very pleased. The house has everything you need from pots, pans, dinnerware to pool toys and beach chairs. Only a very short walk to the beach and I noticed this time, our house had the highest and best shipswatch view, you could sit up there in the evening and hear the ocean, loved it. So close to the little town of duck and all the shops, We can't wait to go back!

Amazing family rental in Duck, NC!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (17 people total) stayed at footprints and we couldn't have been happier!!! The home is large and spacious. 8 bed, 8 1/2 baths made it possible for everyone to be relaxed and comfortable the entire time! All of the outdoor living space is amazing! Multiple decks on each level, large backyard with amazing pool. The kitchen was great! Made preparing dinners for everyone a breeze! Plenty of seating for eating or just kicking back and watching tv. The home is located in a community (schooner ridge) and as a guest you have access to all of the rec facilities. The ocean front pool was our favorite! The rec center also has an outdoor pool, playground, tennis, indoor pool, game room, and fitness center! It was great having access to this! The beach was never overly crowded, plenty of room to sprawl out. We are really very pleased with our decision to rent this home and look forward to renting it again. The entire process was seamless when working out the lease details with Wade and Sue. Can't say enough good things about them! Two thumbs up, for sure!

Amazing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Footprints in Duck, NC was the best vacation our family has ever had! This home has everything, the pool and hot tub are very nice and right out the back door with a cool sound system going outside so you can chill and listen to your tunes. You don't need to take anything, right down to the sand toys, boogie boards, and beach chairs. All the kitchen supplies you could imagine, even a crockpot! The 2 dishwashers sure made clean up easy and more time for the beach. We had 18 people in this home and it was so comfortable plenty of room for everyone. Just a very short walk to the beach, but there is a wagon there for you to pull all your supplies. Very close to the cute little town of Duck, where you can do everything from shopping to parasailing. Everyone is so friendly in this area as well, nothing but smiling faces for a week :) We loved this so much we are giving up a trip to Disney World to return to Footprints for our family vacation next year, we can't wait to go back!

What more could you want ??

  • 5 of 5

Footprints has it all...we had a family reunion - 15 of us - and this home still felt roomy! With 3 king masters and 3 queen masters - everyone felt comfortable. There are two ice makers, two refrigerators, two coffee pots, two kitchen get the idea! The owners have thought of everything so you can relax and enjoy your stay. The pool is large and the hot tub was enjoyed by all. We LOVED the crow's nest up top and enjoyed cocktail hour at sunset most every night. Short stroll to the beach or to the shops and restaurants in Duck. Stop in at the Riverside Grille at dark to enjoy outdoor drinks and cornhole. Wave Pizza is a good place to eat and watch the sunset too. Very large, clean home with all you need for a perfect vacation!
