Good location and house is well maintained

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We had a couple of issues the first day, no internet and an unusable grill, but both issues were resolved that same day. Excellent response. I would suggest a couple of small items that would improve the property. First, a few clothes hooks for the bathrooms would be very helpful. Second, a refrigerator on the first level would be great. We spent a lot of time outside and it would be nice if drinks and a few basics could be easily accessible without going to the third level. It would help to not have to carry everything upstairs and to keep the kids from running upstairs every time someone wanted a drink. Thanks!

Great house in a terrific community

  • 5 of 5

This house is superb. New, clean and well-appointed. Close to the beach and the community amenities, including the pool, shuffleboard court and volleyball court was an added bonus. I strongly recommend this home. Great location for a great price.

Comfortable and clean home

  • 5 of 5

It was a very last minute request and rental that we had to find and ended up at Kite Tales. We have stayed in Whalehead for the better part of 10 years and actually watched this community get built. Since it was just my wife and I we needed a smaller place, comparatively speaking.

The house was well stocked and had everything we needed. The owner and rental agency were friendly and responsive with any questions. This was first week of off season but didn't feel crowded at all, the pool was generally quiet as was the neighborhood.

We would stay here again. The pictures accurately represent the home and it's furnishings. Nice part also, it was at the entrance of the community which made beach access that much closer.

Perfect home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Kite Tales and couldn't have been happier. We are already discussing our intentions to book our stay for next summer. The house was clean, the layout is great, the community amenities were nice. A few comments/recommendations: one of the bed linens had a stain, the beach chairs were disgusting so we had to go out and purchase our own, there were drop clothes or something left in the carport that had a large number of spiders living in it so we had to move that into the outside closet so that the children wouldn't get hurt, and we were disappointed that one of the chains for the bikes was completely missing so we were unable to take a couples bike ride. The beds were not the most comfortable but you find that at any vacation rental. The location of the house in the neighborhood is perfect! Close to the 5 minute walk to the beach (easy until you get to the dune access) and walking distance to the pool without having direct noise from the pool. Our suggestions for the community would be to add a playground for children and to look at rounding the stairs at the pool. All four adults and toddlers banged our knees or legs on the pointy pool stairs at one point while getting out or helping a small child into the pool.

Owner's Response: Hello and thanks for your review of our home on Corolla. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the house and the community. In regards to the few issues you had; From what we can tell, ALL of these issues are things that have occurred during the rental season and were not reported by previous guests. (guests leaving things behind, breaking equipment, staining the linens, is a common problem.) We hope you brought any issues promptly to the attention of our property manager, Corolla Classic Vacations. They should have made every effort to rectify any problems you encountered. We will follow up immediately with them as well.

Wonderfull Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is wonderful and extremely clean. Its a 5 minute walk to the beach. The area is very new and the walkway to the beach is very convenient. We took a tour of the wild horses and enjoyed the museum and shops. The beaches are outstanding and we had fun searching the beach for ocean glass and shells. I highly recommend this property! The owners have thought of everything! We will be back!!

Thank you for a lovely stay!!

Kite Tales Review

  • 5 of 5

39 degrees when we arrived. The house was inviting and secure on this cold day. Utensils in the kitchen were above average as we prefer to dine in. House was clean. We did dry mop the hardwoods and vacuumed the living area. I would return to Kite Tales as we have stayed in OBX every year for many years. The staff at classic vacations are the best. I just love it at this time of year. Regards D Blais
