Reviewer Comments:

Great house in a great location. Family had a blast with plenty of room. The house & exterior (pool) needs a good thorough cleaning. 1/2 inch thick dust on ceiling fans, banana peels/empty chip bags/tissues found under beds/couches. Bathrooms, Pool & pool water falls need to be cleaned. All in all a great week, but the house was a little dirtier than your normal beach house dirty.

Reviewer Comments:

The home was in a fantastic location and the space and amenities were wonderful However, we spent our first day cleaning the kitchen and washing dishes. Cleanliness was definately lacking. Kitchen pots and pans, utensils, Knives, cutting boards all in very poor condition. Mattresses for beds were really bad throughout the house . Hot tub had not been cleaned and took 5days before it was done despite multiple calls. For the large cost of the rental, i wouldn't recommend it until the above mentioned items were improved.

Reviewer Comments:

The location and local area were nice. The house has so much potential however, the the second you step foot in the house you can see it need to be better maintained. The decks are in really bad shape needing stained and lots of nails sticking up. The elevator did not work for almost the full 7 days and the main refrigerator went out and it took them 4 days to get a new one. I would expect more for a rental you pay $10K+ a week to stay. Overall, I would have to say if the owner put some work into the house it would be a real nice place to stay. I will rent again on OBX however would not stay with this owner again as they do not seem to have a care for the guest.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family enjoyed celebrating one anniversary and one birthday at this classic OBX beach home. We particularly enjoyed having everything we needed in the kitchen.... from an ice maker to two dishwashers, to plenty of dishes and cookware. The game room provided extra fun when the sun went down... loved seeing my husband pass on the pool playing skills to his grandson. It was our first time in over 20 years renting oceanfront... it may be hard to go back, now that we have had that experience again.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the house! Great place for our reunion. Lots of space so you didn't feel like you were on top of each other. We had a few issues but Beach Realty handled them fairly promptly. The biggest issue is that the pool heat stopped working mid-week and it took a couple days for them to fix it which really impacted our vacation since we were there in May and the weather wasn't ideal.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback regarding your recent stay at "Big Mama's." We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time spent here on the Outer Banks. We can certainly understand how not having pool heat in May would not be ideal and apologize about the inconvenience. Although we strive to have all issues addressed within 24 hours, we are sometimes at the mercy of an outside vendor. We hope to welcome you back to the Outer Banks again in the near future.

Reviewer Comments:

upon arrival there was no power(nothing worked- lights, outlets in main top floor master bedroom or bathroom- called rental office and they did have maintenance come to repair , but it wasn't until the next day. maintenance guy was very friendly and professional and made the needed repair quickly, had 1 other issue w/ maintenance where 1 of the other masters whirlpool tub would not operate and again same man came and made the repairs in a timely and professional manner (both times it was electrical outlet that was the cause and there were no further issues.house is in a great location w/ groceries close and many family and other activities(shopping,sightseeing,etc...) nearby. the kitchen is well equipped . the windows were filthy on the top floor main area overlooking the ocean and beach, dog hair and sand throughout the home. the pool table had tears in the felt top as well as the bumpers and the bumpers are "dead" the pool area outside was nice but again very unkept a lot of sand everywhere, the pool was dirty as well as the hottub and there wasn't any maintenance our entire week, also the beautiful poolside fireplace did not work. overall we made due and enjoyed our week but I would be hard pressed to use this company again
