Great location, comfortable home, and dogs welcome!

  • 5 of 5

Only about 1 block to Avalon Pier, this home is welcoming and comfortable. Great views, both sunrise and sunset, and the house stood up great to the winds of Maria! Clean rooms, clear water in the hot tub, comfy furniture. AC in the upstairs froze one day and the repair man was there within 2 hours and fixed it in about 30 minutes. Highly recommend this vacation home! Oh, yea, and the dogs were welcome!!

Great week!

  • 4 of 5

Great location - just a walk to the beach & reasonably priced compared to other pet friendly houses in the area. it can use some updates esp some kitchen stuff but for a short stay that didn't matter, most importantly we had a fun stay and will gladly stay here on our next OBX vacation. Thanks!

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well appointed. We loved that is was so close to the beach, restaurants, stores and the movie theater. It has a nice kitchen and tvs in 3 of the 4 bedrooms. There is a hot tub and outdoor shower as well. We would definitely come back to this house!

Nice stay for a week

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Location! 5 min walk to beach and nearest restaurant. Neighborhood was quiet. Easily accommodated our family of 10. It was hot and humid the first week of July, but the AC ran like a champ (pretty much 24x7) keeping the house very comfortable. Linens, beach chairs, and sand toys are included (most places you have to rent these). West decks are nice in the morning and east deck is nice in the evening. The manager Jay is very responsive, and even though he was out of town he arranged someone to come by and clear a clogged drain for us.

Cons: The house needs a thorough maintenance audit. The stove and fridge are older and have some issues that need to be addressed, but we got by. Some chairs were broken and one window started leaking in a hard rainstorm. Some interior walls were cobwebbed, scuffed and dinged. Drains seemed to run a bit slow. Couches could use a thorough scrubbing. At the end of the day it's a rental house with high summer turnover, but I would encourage the owners to give it some attention this offseason. Doing so would likely address some of the more common complaints seen in the comments.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and the house met our needs for a week.

Pictures and description misleading-Old beach house in need of repairs

  • 2 of 5

The house is listed as 165' from beach access path, that's true if you cut through neighbors landscaped yards. All window screens missing or rotted out so you could not open any of them including the siding doors which the back door was very hard to even open or close and my teenage daughter needed my help to close it. The A/C system on the main upper floor stopped working the second day and I overheard the repair tech say on his cell phone "the systems shot and the owner doesn't want to replace it". This appears to be the case for the whole house and for the cost I expected a house cleaner and without almost everything worn out or falling apart. The deck boards had nails popped up all over and my daughter almost split her toe on one. Very disappointed in the condition of the house since it's obvious nothing has been done in many years. Don't believe renters response as another person had a similar issue and they responded they were addressing the issues which nothing was done.

Owner's Response: We're very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the house. We knew of the AC problem and responded immediately. We had not heard any previous complaints about the AC. As you can see from previous reviews just a few weeks earlier several different renters enjoyed the house immensely. We feel it is a very good family value in a prime location just a couple of hundred feet from ocean and near the pier. It is hard to maintain a pristine condition during the busy summer season - but we try. We will look into your concerns about the sliding door being hard to open and the nails. Appreciate your letting us know about these issues.
