Reviewer Comments:

The owner of this property has not maintained it well. The AC was broken when we arrived and it took 2 days for it to be fixed. It wouldn't have been too bad if we could have opened the windows but there are NO SCREENS in any window and there are no blinds either. The curtains are very thin so plan to be up with the sun. The entire house sways in the wind and with movement of anyone in either side of the house. The shower head was literally glued together so it broke with the first use. The upstairs toilet wouldn't flush properly. We had a plumber out twice while we were there. THIS HOUSE IS A DUMP BUT THE LOCATION IS GREAT. The house is right on the water. There is significant beach erosion so you have to climb down to the beach and then up onto the pier. The end of the pier is only in 1 1/2 feet of water so don't plan on docking a boat there. We really loved being in Colington. If this house is of the quality Beach Realty is looking for we will never rent from them again. We will stay in Colington again but not this house and not Beach Realty.

Reviewer Comments:

The duplex was sufficient, but the sound access was very bad. We could not get in the water it was filed with growth and muck...the owners need to maintain their immediate area. This was very disappointing...the pictures are very deceiving ...it the Real Estate world it is called "PUFFING". It only sleeps six and that is if you open the two twin sofa beds...and to do that you would have to rearrange all of the furniture. the sitting area was very uncomfortable and not enough seating ...hardly room for 4. We did find the community beach to be very nice and went to it several times,,,,oh and guest had to pay $2.00 to use the pool. Most likely will not stay there again. K

Reviewer Comments:

This house is very private with the exception of the neighbors in the attached house. The views of the bay area awesome and the beach area to launch is great. The house is older and needs a bit of attention but quite adequate. The beds are comfortable. Would have been nice to open the windows but there were no screens. Overall a great location and comfortable.

Reviewer Comments:

My family has been vacationing at the Outer Banks for many years; it is our favorite place! We are never disappointed in the Banks, but we were quite disappointed in our rental property this year. When we arrived, we found the entire house damp: furniture, carpet, bedding, everything. The air-conditioning vents on the bedroom level were wet to the touch; I'm sure that the living area ones located high in the cathedral-ceilinged space were also. There was mildew high on the stairwell wall. Opening windows was not a good option, as some windows were missing screens, and all windows were nearly cobwebbed over. There were cobwebs hanging from light fixtures in the master bedroom, and some elsewhere on walls and ceilings. Clearly, the cottage has not been maintained, other than light housekeeping. We were also disappointed in the lack of a good spot for reading. The house has no reading lamp adjacent to comfortable seating. This is a nice cottage in a lovely setting and it could be a pleasant vacation site; however, in its current condition, I cannot recommend it.

Very nice property if you prefer a quiet and relaxing vacation. The property was clean and well equipped. The washer/dryer is a plus. Close to restaurants, activities and attractions. Would recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Reviewer Comments:

Its important to know what your getting when you rent this property. It is not clear from the description. 1st. the Positive. You are on the sound and from the master bed, you can look out the window and see it. It is a private lot duplex. Full kitchen with wireless internet connection. There are a couple of nice stained glass windows and covered parking under the house. The Negative You enter downstairs to two bedrooms and the full bath. The bedrooms are OK but the bath is missing light bulbs and the shower curtain has a heavy layer of mold/mildew. Upstairs you enter to the living room, the TV wouldn't start for us though we later figured out the batteries on remote were bad. There are 2 love seats that make into single beds here but the mattresses are bad. Being the only furniture besides a couple of tables, it is very hard to be comfortable. You can't lye down to watch TV and sitting with others is odd sharing a love seat or sitting so far apart. We discovered our first ants in this room as well. The lighting is all overhead and cold. No lamps around nor ceiling fans. The top deck is next with rotting wood spider webs and a tree limb blocking 80% of the view. This is the main lounging deck, decked out with plastic chairs and you see very little of the sound. On to the half bath upstairs, not bad if you wear ear plugs. The fan is extremely loud. The windows throughout are rotting and filled with spider webs. No opening the windows for that wonderful breeze. On top of all this, we checked with our rental agent before leaving to clear up some questions, we were told that towels are provided, they aren't. If we knew what we were getting, we would not have been so disappointed on our arrival. This is why I write, so you will know.
