Nightmare on N. Virginia Dare

  • 1 of 5

This was by far the worst property I have ever stayed at at any beach. The black mold throughout the house and in the HVAC system had everyone sick by the end of the week. The ceiling in the basement leaked. The basement toilet did not flush. The Jacuzzi tub in the bedroom in the middle floor did not work. None of the TVs in the house (except the one in the main living space) worked. The house was very dirty. The beds were uncomfortable. The pillows smelled awful. Based on the ocean view photo, we thought the beach access was much closer than it actually was.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you experienced these problems during your stay at WOW House and I want to respond to your comments. During the summer months when the HVAC is running and it is humid outside, mold does collect around the vents - we have it throughout the OBX and we can and do clean them off with bleach. It is something that happens here quite a bit in the heat of the summer. There was a leak over the pool table and we thought it was a condensation leak however found out it is coming from the bathroom above. It is an intermittent leak and in order to repair it, it will require drywall removal etc. While the house is across the street from the beach, there is no access there. That is why we put the distance to the beach access in the property information - we did not want to mislead anyone on how to access the beach. I am sorry that we did not meet your vacation expectations.

Good Value Overall

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the WOW House in August of 2013. Overall it met our needs, although there were a handful of items that we identified during our stay. None of these were major issues that required calling the management company, but passing along to those that are considering renting the house.

- While the house is less than 100 yards from the beach, the nearest public access is about 1/4 mile away.

- There are no HDTVs in the house so if you want to hook up an IPad or a Laptop to watch Netflix you'll need an adapter that has either VGA or RCA plugs.

- The water pressure is low, which means that you have to limit the number of people that shower at the same time.

- There were limited kitchen utensils (pots, pans, coffee mugs,etc) although this may have just been due to renting at the tail end of the summer season.

- The internet connection was slow, although in all fairness we had about 10 different laptops/IPods/IPads running on it at one time so that was somewhat expected.

On the positive side the pool and hot tub where fantastic, there is an enormous dining room table (seats 10), the game room was great, and there was more than enough room for all 10 of us. None of the issues above detracted from our stay and we enjoyed the trip greatly.
