You could tell it was just a rental to the owners
Please read all the way through, there is a positive comment at the end. We have been coming to OIB for so long we could have paid for a house by now but then we would miss getting to stay in some of the most wonderful homes in OIB. You can tell people who actually live there and those who don't. The owners of 5 Myrtle, I'm guessing, don't because the owners wouldn't put up with poor water pressure and lack of hot water after a couple
showers in the bathrooms inside the house. We used the outdoor shower most of the time. Want to make it more inviting for your guests? Change out your showerhead, invest in a swing away 2 sided mirror for both baths, think about switching out some of the large dressers for gentlemen chests so the bedrooms aren't so over crowded. The whole place was painted so dark also, kind of depressing when you are at the beach. Things were not all bad though, loved the location. Directly across from the beach access. We had my grandkids with us so it made walking back and forth much easier. Would I stay here again? That's a big No.
We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at our beach property. We'd like to address several of your comments that you wrote in your review:
"You can tell people who actually live there and those who don't. The owners of 5 Myrtle, I'm guessing, don't because the owners wouldn't put up with poor water pressure and lack of hot water after a couple showers in the bathrooms inside the house."
This is a false assumption as we are NC natives and spend at least a week of our own summer vacation and numerous other long weekends at our beach property since we've owned the house more than 10 years ago. Often times we invite others with us and have never had issues with the water pressure and hot water. As you may or may not realize, there was a water main break at Ocean Isle Beach the week you vacationed which could have impacted the water pressure and subsequently the hot water. We apologize about this as it was out of our control.
"The whole place was painted so dark also, kind of depressing when you are at the beach."
Our photos on VRBO accurately depict the color decor of our house which is not a pastel-theme that some may want in a vacation home. We have nautical-themed decor in every room of the house. We've never experienced a shortage of bright light in the house with blinds open and curtains pulled.
"We used the outdoor shower most of the time."
We also use the outdoor shower in the summer months so that we do not track sand into the house. Most people prefer to use the outdoor shower, which is enclosed with hot & cold water, towel hooks, shelves for shampoo and soaps, and a bench for changing.
"Directly across from the beach access. We had my grandkids with us so it made walking back and forth much easier."
We agree that our location is convenient for walking to/from the beach with little ones! Over the years, we've stayed at this house with newborns, toddlers, and pre-teens. We hope your grandkids enjoyed the child's swing that is under our house.
We had the best time Memorial Day Weekend for a girls getaway. The weather was perfect! The house was awesome for us. We honestly could not have asked for a better weekend! Thank you for letting us use it!
Thanks for the compliments! We look forward to having you stay again!
