We Had A Lovely Stay

  • 3 of 5

[begin_ratings]1000,1001,1002,1003,1005,1006;3,4,4,5,3,1[end_ratings]Great location. The home was mostly as advertised - mostly clean upon arrival (no vaccuuming under the sofas which were piled with dust), having a well-equipped kitchen. The short 1 block walk to the beach was easy, leading right to the stairs to access the lovely beach. Our biggest complaint concerns the uncomfortable beds throughout, especially that in the lower bedroom, and the lack of proper linens. None of the beds had proper bed pads or blankets, and 1 shower had mildew covered curtain. Found in the bedroom closets were piles of unfolded (dirty??) linens. We should have complained, but did not. Also, home appears to need to be sprayed for roaches; roaches discovered at night on the exterior deck along the house's perimeter

Reviewer Comments:

We really enjoyed our stay at Carolina Beach and Carolina Cay. Here are the positives: The house was very nice. It was only a short walk to the beach and the owner made available, bicycles, and beach chairs to use. The master bed was very comfortable. The three bathrooms made it very convenient for getting dressed to go out and the outside shower was very nice. The linens were very nice and soft with no stains. I really like the way the towels and wash cloths were packaged and on the beds for the guests. The rocking chairs were very nice on both porches! There was plenty of plates, glasses, etc. A few negatives: The bunk beds need some work or replaced. They are not stable. We took the mattress off the top bunk and put it on the floor. The pots and pans could use some updating. Personally, I probably won't stay at Carolina Cay again. The neighbors who own the adjoining unit were not very friendly and made sure we knew they owned their unit and did not rent it out. Their family members got into a very heated argument using profanity and it came to the point of being physical. In hindsight, we should have called authorities. I would recommend Intracoastal Realty, but just not that particular property due to the owners next door.

Wonderful beach house and location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the Carolina Cay last week and loved it. It had more than enough room for the 5 of us (myself, husband, two 6 year olds, and my MIL). I was worried that the walk to the beach would be more exhausting than other reviewers had said (probably because I'm lazy, ha), but it really was a fast, easy walk! And the condo was very clean. I was worried after reading a previous review, but the condo was in tip top shape. I am one of those people who show up at hotels and rentals with Clorox wipes, and I went over the bathroom counters, toilets, and kitchen sinks with wipes and they were very clean (and no hair on the floor which always creeps me out), so that was a good start to a perfect week! We went to the beach 6 out of the 7 days we were there, and also visited the Aquarium one day and the USS North Carolina another day. This was the first time we stayed in Carolina Beach and I can honestly say that it is my new favorite beach! Traffic to OBX is atrocious and there isn't a lot to do once you are there. But this beach town was super easy to get to (never once did we hit a slow down), and there are plenty of restaurants and shops yet it has a quaint small town feel. And I love that the beach was nothing like Virginia Beach which is always too crowded.

Major pluses: location, bedrooms were roomy, decorated nicely, large washer/dryer, wifi, good working AC, and having linens (sheets and towels) included was wonderful!

Minor annoyances: no hairdryer, dishwasher didn't work all that great, and no working can opener (2 were in the drawer, neither made a dent in the cans), had to hold the master bathroom toilet handle down 3-4 seconds for it to flush properly.

I did not take off a star for any of the above, because they weren't a big deal. The only reason I took off a star was mainly because the king mattress in the master bedroom was cheap and very uncomfortable. I have slept on better beds in dumpy hotels. Every morning I woke up with a sore, achey back. So I am hoping that management will read this review and put a good quality 2-3 inch foam mattress topper on the bed, which would go a long way to making it more comfy.

It was also disappointing that a new house was being constructed in the lot immediately beside the Carolina Cay. Every week day morning we were awakened at 7:00am by hammers and loud banging which made it impossible to sleep.

Everything else was great though!

Reviewer Comments:

The house was gorgeous and the location was great. Easy walk to the beach. Plenty of room inside. My only gripe is that the inside of the house wasn't extremely clean. The carpet in one bedroom looked like it had fresh vomit on it. The toilets said they were sanitized but one was full of hair. We had to clean and sanitize all 3 bathtubs in order to bathe our kids as they all had soap scum and sand in them. If I were in college again I would have had no cares, but as a parent, the cleanliness was sub-par and we shouldn't have to scrub a house down before we begin our vacation. The furniture has also seen better days, but was acceptable. Other than the lack of cleanliness, it was a very nice place and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
