I stayed at 2 cool this thanksgiving with my family and some friends and the house was even more beautiful in person. It was beautifully decorated and had everything you need and more. The location is absolutely stunning. Will definitely be in my plans to come back.

Comfortable home, unpleasant overall experience
This property is managed by a separate company (I'll call it XYZ), so VRBO is the “middle man” here. That created some problems for us since the information that was listed here on VRBO about the property was not what was listed on XYZ's site. For example, the VRBO listing said pets were allowed and that linen fees were included. We were able to get them to waive the linen fees, but they charged us a pet fee twice, when we had already paid the $150 pet fee when booking through VRBO. Not to mention the hassle of getting a phone call in the middle of our vacation from Donna at XYZ saying that we had booked a property that was not pet friendly and that we were essentially in breach of contract. Donna was pretty rude and did not seem to care that the VRBO listing said that this was a pet friendly property and that we had already paid the fee. There was also nothing in the contract about the specific property not being pet friendly and when my husband called XYZ to confirm the booking no one took the time to walk him through the details, otherwise they would have realized the information on VRBO was incorrect. XYZ is clearly not managing their customer communications very well. Pointing out the obvious here, but if a property is not pet friendly, then it should not say “pet friendly" in the VRBO listing. And if you make that mistake, you should be apologizing to the customer, not charging them more money.
To top it all off, the house was not in the best of conditions when it comes to cleanliness. The floors were dirty with dust bunnies everywhere, there were even cobwebs and spiders in some parts of the house. The small room attached to the living room had a terrible smell (we thought mold - and we are allergic). Last but definitely not least, we found dead and live cockroaches every day we were there. We saw them walking on the kitchen counters. It's clearly very unsanitary and made us a little grossed out when cooking. The furniture and home itself is comfortable and the stay would have been exponentially better had the home been taken care of a little more diligently and the communications better managed by BBR. We have photos of everything mentioned here, the cockroaches found, the dirt, cobwebs, and the screenshot of the VRBO listing saying that the property is pet friendly and we're glad to share them with the owner.
Hello, Amanda. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our property '2 Cool', as it is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to maintain and, where necessary, improve upon the service that we provide to our valued guests. I would like to take this time to apologize and address some of the concerns that you have listed in your review. First, I would like to sincerely apologize for any rude behaviors used by our staff. Here at Better Beach Rentals, we pride ourself on customer relations and do not tolerate anything less than satisfactory. I would then like to apologize for the misunderstanding of the hidden pet fees. When booking through a third party website such as VRBO, this is something that definitely needs to be explained in detail as the fees differ for each property that we have and are ultimately not included in price quotes. We will be sure to fix this in the VRBO and HomeAway system. Lastly, I would like to apologize for all housekeeping and maintenance issues that you discovered on the property. I noticed there were no requests for housekeeping or maintenance to come out to the property during your stay; in the future, we would appreciate a phone call to report any problems during a stay so we can immediately remedy the situation to assure the best possible visit for our guests. If you are willing to give us another try, I would be happy to give you a discount for giving us another visit. Thank you for staying with us here on Oak Island. BBR
Loved the house
We were looking for a relaxing time at the beach for our family reunion and this house was perfect. The house was recently remodeled and we were excited to have been able to rent such a nice place. The view out the back of the house is stunning. We loved sitting outside at night. We also enjoyed watching the sunset from the deck at the front of the house. The kitchen was very well appointed and had every utensil and pot that I needed to cook. It was also well organized so I didn't have to go searching for things like you often do when cooking in a kitchen that is not yours. The appliances were all new and there was plenty of silverware and plates for our large group. The decor in the house was great and it made you feel like you were at home. Antiques mixed with newer pieces gave it a lovely feel. Having the computer in the kitchen was a treat for both the kids and adults. The outdoor shower was fabulous and kept the sand in the house to a minimum. The owners had a book of recommendations on everything from grocery stores, local restaurants and shopping that we looked at every day for tips. The beach is literally a 1 minute walk across the street. There were a few times we were the only people on the beach so we felt like we were on a private island!! The pool was terrific because it allowed the kids to swim whenever they wanted. And the cart for the beach gear was much appreciated. We have rented a lot of beach houses over the years and this was my favorite!!! We booked it for 2018 already and can't wait to return.
Perfect Home! Perfect location! An incredible value, we already booked our Family for a summer week!
The long range views of the marsh and ocean are incredible. The house has a new incredibly well appointed kitchen. Everything has been recently renovated with great attention to the smallest detail. Giving you a wonderful at home feel. The pool and surrounding furniture is so nice with a fantastic enclosed shower. The homeowner included an iMac desktop, a buggy for carrying your beach gear, tons of garage space and even a perfect little nook to read in next to the well appointed book shelves. Three decks, all with breath taking views. There are 3 HIVAC systems so everyone is comfortable. I just can not say enough about the attention to detail the new homeowners expended. The before and after photos on the iMac tell the tale on the time and expense spent transforming this quiet get a way. It's a home I plan to revisit often. You couldn't ask for a more comfortable stay. It's a gem hiding in plain sight on the quiet side of Caswell Beach with incredibly close access to the beach, golf course and Southport. We can not wait to get back for a week in the 2018 summer!
You have got to be kidding!
Upon looking at the pictures on VRBO we were quite excited on coming back to our favorite beach, when we arrived we discovered that the pictures were taken by another owner and this place is under renovation. It is shabby and hot. The furniture is saggy and uncomfortable. The lesson I have learned is not to go thru a realtor but the owners directly, realtors seem to leave out important information, such as the house is under renovation.
Thank you for your review. I would like to take the time to apologize for the renovations and any misunderstanding of the property during your stay. The maintenance issues, such as the heat, and the upkeep of the furniture has all been replaced and fixed since the renovation. Again, thank you for your review as it is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to maintain and, where necessary, improve upon the service that we provide to our valued guests. We hope to 'SEA' you soon. Life is better at the beach! BBR
