HAPPY MANATEE: 4 BR / 2 BA oceanfront in Surf City, Sleeps 11
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Nice house with a few exceptions, poor service

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice, in a good location, and generally clean. The decor was very nice, and the property is generally very well-maintained. Depending on the family setup (the layout is a little strange, with the two "master" BRs sharing a jack & jill bathroom), I would likely re-visit this property again if there were a different rental company.

Unfortunately, we were extremely disappointed with the rental company (Topsail Realty), who very poor at responding to our service request (a broken ice maker). They ignored our first phone call; promised to "get back" to us after our subsequent in-person request but never did; and after yet another in-person request, we were given a call back to say that someone would come take a look and then get back to us, and we STILL never heard anything back. This is obviously not ideal, and speaks very poorly about how they care for their customers -- we are just glad that there were no other service requests needed for more important issues.


- Good location

- House is in good condition

- A/C works very well

- TV/Internet are very good

- Washer/dryer are OK, though I wouldn't recommend the auto-sensing on the dryer

- Furniture is mostly nice, though the living room setup seemed a little backwards to us


- Very poor response to service request

- The beds are reasonable comfortable, but they are LOUD when any movement is made

- The two "master" bedrooms share a jack & jill bathroom -- a very strange setup

- Kitchen not the most stocked in terms of accessories -- in particular, the oven seems a little off, and the knives are very dull but no sharpener is provided
