Great location

  • 4 of 5

The house suited our family of 5 well. Overall the home was clean and comfortable. We did have a few home maintenance issues. I loved that the house had hardwood floors throughout. Our family enjoyed the beautiful pool and hot tub as well.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I was surprised to see in your review that you experienced maintenance issues. I had no idea anything was amiss and if you had reached out I would have sent someone right away to resolve the issues. We had good communication leading up to your stay, especially when we agreed to an early check in, which most other properties only provide at an additional charge. After I read the listing of issues you sent as per my request, it would have taken few minutes to resolve: 1. Cable box in one of the room not working: Solution: change the TV to the correct HDMI Input 2. Bunk ladder: It is kept in the closet 3. Fan blades dusty: It looks like dust, but it is a film that have built up over time on the edges. 4.Curtain rod felt trying to open the curtain: Unforeseen issue. 5. Utensil draw in the kitchen was dirty.: I would have sent the cleaners back to clean it. They were cleaning as fast as they can to allow you early access since you have a special need and may have missed it. Travel text: """ We had a wonderful vacation in OBX. I was planning on emailing you a list of maintenance considerations when I settled back home. the needs I listed did not need immediate attention. This is why I did not reach out to you right away. Your home was Great! I Hope these maintenance issues will be taken into future consideration. We thank you again for early access to the home to accommodate my son's medical issues. We hope to be back again in the future. Regards, Kristen"""

The home was very well maintained and clean throughout. It was the perfect size for 3 families.

  • 4 of 5

It was our first time staying in the outer banks and we picked a great house. There was plenty of room throughout and we got a perfect view of the sunrise every single morning from the top rear deck. Its about a 7 min walk to the beach and perfectly located within walking distance to the grocery store and shopping complex. Corolla park was a short 3 mile drive where we went crabbing and there's a free public slip for kayak or wave runner access. Everything worked great at the house and the kitchen was fully stocked with all our needs. This house does not have an elevator and it's three levels so be prepared to go up and down steps a lot. The kitchen is on the third floor. Also, if you have very small children you will need to keep an eye on them with steps. Despite that we still had a great time at the house.

Great family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was beautiful & had most everything we needed to make our vacation enjoyable. It was a short walk to the beach which was clean & not crowded (mid May). We spent much of our time at the home, relaxing & making dinners using the well-stocked kitchen & gas grill. There are many stairs to navigate which may be hard for the less ambulatory, & the kitchen and main family areas are on the top floor. We didn't realize when reserving this home that the pool would not be heated. Fortunately due to unseasonably warm weather the pool warmed enough to get in by the end of our stay, still very cool water. Jesus was accommodating & communicative. Truly appreciated his quick response to emails thruout the process.
