Great location but house needs work
The location is great - as close to the beach as possible with a fairly short walk over the dunes. The house is spacious with decks on all 3 levels. The upper level deck has a fantastic view of the ocean and is the best place to view the sunrise. Unfortunately, the inside of the house was infested with bugs, including cockroaches, spiders, and other insects. The lower level - where 3 of the 4 bedrooms are located- had the most bugs. We found spiders in the bathrooms every day, and a few times they fell on us in the bedrooms. We had cockroaches and flies in the kitchen, although we were careful not to leave the doors or windows open. We informed the owner of the problem and he said they usually only exterminate once a year because they don’t want the chemicals in the house. He said they would check it out in 2 weeks when they visit the house again.
In addition to the bug problem, the house is past due for repairs and renovations. One of the sliding doors has a broken lock, the bathroom fixtures are old, the blinds are in bad shape, and the screens on the sliding doors are hard to open. The kitchen has dull knives, a barely working toaster and blender, and an odd assortment of pots and pans. There are plenty of dishes and glasses, but nothing else is provided. When we arrived, there were no bath mats on the floors but we later found them sitting in the washing machine wet.
Overall, despite the great location and views, I would not recommend this house until the problems are resolved.
Wonderful beach vacation
Very comfortable house. Views wonderful especially from master bedroom. A/C plus ceiling fans kept house cool and ice maker in refrigerator kept up with our endless request for ice. The 5-6 walk to the beach seemed quick after the first few days. Beware mid day sand excruciatingly hot. Bedrooms don’t darken so bring eye masks if light sensitive. A started package of paper towels and toilet paper and plastic garbage bags provided. Otherwise no kitchen basis like salt or sugar provided.
Great beach week!
We had a great time! Loved everyone coming and going to the beach all day long! The dog loves the decks and being outside! Lots of spaces for large family gathering. Had a great time here!
Great vacation with friends and our dogs.
We had a wonderful time with friends and our dogs. The location is great. Very close to Waves and Rodanthe. The decks with gates were great. We could relax without worrying that the dogs would get loose. Thanks for the relaxing vacation spot!
Arizona at the beach
Loved the house and location; all the deck space. Kitchen was listed as “chefs kitchen”—not so much. An odd assortment of kitchen gadgets and dull knives. It would have been nice to have coffee filters already available as I didn’t know what kind to bring and to buy would have been wasteful as I don’t use that kind at home. Also, the TV room should have a pull out sofa in it for privacy and there was no air conditioning in there.
Great location. Amazing beach. Well equipped and very comfortable house. We had a great stay.
You can walk to the beach right across the dune
