Reviewer Comments:

Upon arrival, the woman at the counter greeted us happily and was very nice to talk to. She was extremely helpful and called up as soon as the property was available for us to stay. The house inside looked good. It was well cleaned. Myself and the guests were very disappointed when we arrived to a shattered door on the second floor. After calling the wonderful, helpful woman in the office, she had someone come and look at it and by the end of the week someone did come to fix it. It was a shame that we could not utilize that particular door in fear it would break and become more of a hazard, especially with it being a convenient access door to the grill and the pool when coming from the second or third floor. We also were let down due to our excitement for the lights that ran around the fencing of the pool, lighting it up wonderfully in the pictures we saw, but the lights did not work, at all. Someone did place tiki torches around the fence but they did not give off the light and feel that the rope lights did. Having a pool, hot tub, and a pool table was great but when it's not the quality that your led to believe, it becomes pretty disappointing. We hyped it up pretty well to others staying in Corolla, but it was not at all like we thought..

Reviewer Comments:

This home itself wonderful and the layout was perfect for a large group. You can tell the owners really care about making it great for families to enjoy considering how well it is stocked with games, appliances, etc. There was even a certificate for free bagels at the local coffee shop. Where things seem to be lacking comes down to property management. Things were very dirty and certain things were not working upon arrival. Let me into a little more detail. 1) There was a spider infestation in the basement bedroom and in the pool area. Once we called, they powerwashed the exterior, but we continued to have an influx of spiders in the room. 2) A poor job was done getting the home clean for our arrival. Trash on the floor, blood stains on one mattress cover, moldy shower curtains, hair all over the bathroom, sand on the floors... I could go on. I left a message with the rental company as this was very upsetting. They called me back the next day to say they could have someone come clean. To me this was too little too late as we were not going to spend the evening in a filthy home and already had cleaned much of the problematic areas. I asked for a discount on our stay to make up for the time spent, and they said that was not in their policy. Even a simple apology would have made me feel better, but the representative from Shoreline OBX was not very nice. When I said I was unhappy with the whole situation and would be leaving them a poor review online (here you go!), she said I was "threatening" her. Since when is leaving a bad review threatening someone? I just want other potential renters to be aware. 3) Those pretty lights you see in the pool area in the pictures - sadly they do not work.

Reviewer Comments:

The layout of the house worked out great. It was definitely well stocked and the pool and hot tub were such an added bonus. It was very convenient to just about everything. We enjoyed all of the decks and the pool was stocked with quite a few pool toys/floats. I would have to add that I thought the 800' to beach should be modified to reflect beach access because it is definitely further than that to the beach. It's a nice walk but it was a bit farther than the 800' that we were expecting. The lighthouse and park are a nice bike ride and walk and we enjoyed visiting the quaint shops in that area too. Would recommend replacing mattresses in master bedroom and guest room across from master. They are starting to get uncomfortable.

It is not only the family and friends who make your vacation enjoyable,but the location! Had a fabulous time and would recommend this home to others. We were a bit surprised with a few issues at first but nothing that ruined our vacation. Very accessible to beach and we LOVED the pool and hot tub! Hope to return next year with another SWANDA!
