House, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Beds for 18)
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We arrived and found no linens on the beds. A message to the owner and the rental agency, and we had sheets delivered and the owner asked that we be given a late check out for the inconvenience. We later found that the towel bars in the bathrooms were loose and fell 9n someone's toe. The light/fan switch was reported on our checkin day, We were told that they would fix the switch the following day, however it never was. The upstairs deck needed some work as it looked like it hadn't been maintained. The door handle going out to the upper deck was so loose that we had difficulty getting out onto the 3rd level deck. During our stay, we also never saw anyone that came to maintain the hot tub either. I messaged the owner and she was fantastic, however I don't think the rental agency has been keeping up with the maintenance of the home. We have rented from the owner and had Southern Shores as the rental agency before and didn't have those issues. I am not sure what happened this time. We were very disappointed.
Hi! We appreciate all reviews and have completed significant "spring updates" since this review was written. The upper deck is being replaced today, the light/fan switch has been fixed and the towels bars re-attached, in addition to many other small fix-it jobs! I'm sorry that these items were not addressed in advance of Donna's stay. Southern Shores is available for all renters if they have any maintenance-type issues during their stay or renters can contact me (the owner) directly.
Please give us another try! We have an awesome semi-oceanfront location and great space and amenities for our renters!
An idyllic Oceanview beach getaway
Wow! I was treated to a wide open living area large enough to seat 20 at 1 seating for dinner. The ocean views were incredible. I took full advantage of the solitude to walk the beach, and luxuriate in the hot tub even though it is winter.
The house is perfectly appointed and immaculate. There were bedrooms everywhere complete with cable access tvs and fun, beach decorating.
The green wave is the name of the place and it washed over me with such happiness, I truly cried that I had to return to work by the weekends' end.
I loved it so much I returned a month later!!
The Green Wave was perfect for us, we had 4 adults and a 2 1/2 year old and two newborns. It was great being so close to the beach especially with all the stuff children require and we enjoyed walking to town to get ice cream and dinner. The pool was very secure and they had beach toys and umbrellas you could use. None of us wanted the leave! My only suggestion would to bring a frying pan. There was only 1 large one.
Great House even in the Off Season
We were there in the fall. Not quite warm enough for the beach. However, there is so much to do in walking distance that it didn't even matter. It's a nice quiet street. The house is great! Plenty of space for everyone to hang out and eat meals together, but also space for people to sit quietly and read or get some work done if need be. I didn't feel like we were always on top of each other. The decks are nice for happy hour and it was great to be able to use the hot tub. Even in the off season this house is perfect, I can only imagine how great the summer must be!
Great Family Times
We come down in the fall. The weather is usually pretty good . There is plenty of room. A nice large kitchen with a beautiful view of the water. A short walk to the beach, with a nice place to watch the sunrise. The hot tub is great, has a pool and wet bar next to them. Any issues that came up was quickly taken care of. Close to town and fishing pier. Lots of good restaurants in the area. Lots of room for us all.
Green Wave is Great!
This house is ideal for large groups vacationing together. We had 3 families (with a total of 14 people) spend a week together here and never felt crowded even when we all ate together (the dining table is HUGE!). The house was immaculate and well furnished. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. We loved the pool, hot tub and attractive outside bar. The proximity to the beach was a great draw. We liked that the house was at the end of the road and the kids could ride bikes safely without lots of through traffic. We also liked being within walking distance to shops and donuts!
