Terrible dont waste your money
Roaches and bugs everywhere. No hot water the first day called managment said they had to check with maintenance and call us back. We didn't hear anything for 3 hours and while out we called them back. Managment said they called and didn't get an answer, phones were on and perfect working order. Were told they sent somebody out to turn on water heater under the house. Asked them about the bugs and strong smell of the water said it was all because of hurricane. If we wanted to buy a can of bug spray we could. Had a toilet in a closet so small it was useless, in the main bathroom the shower didn't work and had to use boiled bottle water to wash with.Went to office to turn in the keys woman never asked how was your stay or anything. If you are looking for a place at the NC coast stay away from century 21 property not professional at all.
We (the owners) are very sorry you had to deal with the after effects of a major hurricane during your stay at the beach. Unfortunately, the unwanted pests and smell of the water were something the entire island had to cope with. We do apologize for the hot water. In our mad scramble to get the house put back together and the beach walkway rebuilt in time for your rental, we inadvertently forgot to turn on the water heater. The main bath shower works fine. You must have missed the posted note as to how to turn it on.
I do hope you enjoyed the beach and had fun discovering some of the restaurants and businesses that were able to reopen after the storm. It is interesting to note that the renters in the other half of the duplex gave us 5 stars.
Best to you with no more hurricanes in your future!
Serious Updates Needed
We have stayed in beach rentals for almost 10 years. This was one of the worst. It was poorly cleaned and uncomfortable. Basic maintenance issues need to be addressed.
broken clock in one bedroom- Alarm button can't turn off. Have to unplug clock.
gutters- need to be cleaned and repositioned, as water flows freely over the front door.
stove missing a rack
dust- ON EVERYTHING. Ceiling fan, air returns, lights, lamps, books*
bathroom doorknob fell out of the door*
bath fans not working at all
blinds broken- the rods to open and close them were off of a few of them
shower curtain moldy
Garbage cans with a foul smelling black slime and garbage on them*
Urine smell in bathrooms*
The couches are uncomfortable with ill fitting cushions and slip covers that don't stay put.
The mattress covers were torn, and had sand inside them. I know there is sand at the beach, but not like this.
In one of my attempts to sweep up, I discovered shards of broken glass (not ours).
There is no dishwasher, and the last renters were terrible dish cleaners.
The starred items were reported to the rental company and they had some people come out to address the issues, but the bathroom smell lingered all week, and the dust needed more than a quick wipe.
Needless to say we were disappointed.
We are deeply saddened that you had issues with our home. Although rental properties get tired looking by this point in the season with much use and unfortunate abuse, that is no excuse for your having to deal with a less than happy experience with our home. I have hired cleaners to do a "deep clean" of the house this week to bring it back life for those that follow you. My sincere apologies for your disappointments.
Great place for a Chill week at the Beach
When we first arrived the place was filthy. The floors were dirty, the kitchen was dirty. We spent the first few hours cleaning. Thankfully, the owners reimbursed us $100. The kitchen is small, but if you aren't planning to do a lot of cooking it is sufficient. The AC worked great! The beds were extremely uncomfortable. I recommend bringing your own pillow and perhaps a foam topper. I was able to bring my Labrador, which was great. The beach was beautiful and I enjoyed being so close to the water. The outdoor shower was broken, but there was a second hose that we were able to use to wash our feet. There was plenty of parking even with this being a duplex. There are several chairs to lounge in on the deck, which was nice especially in the evening.
We deeply regretted our cleaning crew letting us down for your rental. We have taken measures so that will not happen in the future. Had the broken shower been reported, we would have had it repaired right away. We are glad you enjoyed the beach!
Everything it is listed as. Great beach views and good location. The king bed wasn't very comfy, and we missed having a dishwasher, but other than that is was all fine. We would go back, but I'd take a mattress topper.
Great location, outdated house
The house's proximity to the beach was wonderful. The beach was wide open the whole time, and it felt like we had our own private beach. The house was a little outdated. Drawers didn't open well, a little dirty (especially in the bathroom), and there were some critters crawling around when I started moving dishes around in the cabinets. Overall, a good place to stay for a few days, but with renovations, this house could be absolutely amazing.
Perfect location and cute comfortable house. We had a great week and will definitely be back!
The house is a great size for a small family. The location was amazing. We had a fabulous week. There are some things that could use updating but still was very functional and comfortable for us all. Thenoven only had one rack and the burners kept slipping. The main thing that kept me from giving a "5" was the floors. They were not at all cleaned when we arrived. There was sand and dog fur everywhere. There was even a distinct line around the couches and beds where dirt, sand, and dog hair had been swept underneath. The wood floors cleaned up pretty nicely but the tiled areas stayed gritty all week despite sweeping twice a day. Perhaps some better throw rugs? Also the slip covers don't fit the couches and drove me crazy. But we'd go back!! It was all manageable. Just be sure to pack a dustpan and some patience.
I will speak to our cleaning crew about the floors. I am sorry you did not find them as they should be. I appreciate the heads up on the slip covers and stove and will make improvements. I'm glad you had a great week. There's nothing like a beach vacation! Enjoy your lasting happy memories.
Our cottage is located in a residential neighborhood on an island with beautiful sand beaches. Shopping and recreational activities are an easy drive away. It's easy to find your own personal balance between time on the beach and time exploring all the fun places and activities the island has to offer.
