  • September 2016 Stay

    "Our 20th trip to obx first time w Village Realty. VR was great! Had a few issues (nothing major) and they were on them all quickly! Sea Monster is a great home - lots of room and well stocked. We did have issues w the wifi. Never could connect my laptop. And the cooktop very confusing but once you figure it out it's great! Highly recommend this home to all!"

  • Nice Property

    "My family of eight had a particularly enjoyable week at Sea Esta. The bedrooms were comfy and spacious, each with its own bath. It is tough for an older family with health issues to move personal gear and food up two flights of steps but that's not the house problem. The living area on the top floor is wonderful with a large kitchen, dining room table, and room to enjoy the living room. It is an awesome view from the third floor. The house does need some attention to worn areas. Third floor stairs could use carpet/runner so not slipping hazard. I'm sure that renting at end of summer will mean more issues. Several items that I called about were no a/c on arrival for the second floor, no coffee grinder (critical for us!), ants at front door and kitchen counter, broken ice machine, security code limiting show choices on the only big screen tv, hot tub has very limited jet power & broken parts. There were only 2 beach chairs that were usable. The back outside areas had broken, discarded items that I assume were from previous guests that don't get removed by the mgmt company. Nearly all of the bedroom TVs & living room tv need upgrading because they are not flat screen, small, and they are very difficult to use, some having 2 remotes & no instructions. Must be tech savvy to operate. The pool is fabulous but the area needs a picnic table in the only shaded spot. The third floor deck could use shade so it can be used earlier in the day. Response time was good from Corolla Classic Vacations (CCV) to get tech to fix HVAC for second floor and to have someone bring a grinder. They did nothing about ants or ice maker which we turned off instead of it just running water. They sent a tech for the cable security code issue but he left without telling us the problem. Had to call again to learn only the owner can talk with cable co and they would remind maintenance to contact them. When it did not get removed, we wrote to owner directly who quickly took care of getting the code removed. The gas for the grill ran out and we were told it would be 1.5 hours to swap out. With our meal on the grill, my niece volunteered to find CCV and take the tank. Because I had offered an alternative to the cylinder, as my niece was getting in car, CCV showed up with replacement. Wooden decks are becoming splintery. (FYI roof will cause probs soon with missing shingles & age.) These things in no way hindered us from having a very nice, relaxing week. Hermine sent us home a day early :("

  • Everything we were looking for!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We were so pleased with this property and the area of Corolla! We used to go further south, but like it much better up here. This is the first time we rented a home with a pool, and we couldn't believe what a difference it made (especially since the home doesn't sit right on the water). THE BEDS!!! Finally, a vacation home that got it right! I'm used to getting worse sleep when away from home, but this week was honestly the best week of sleep I've had in a long time. Needless to say, a new bed is in our near future because of this stay! This home really does have about anything you could want, inside and out. Even accessories like wake boards, floaties, beach cart. We enjoyed the large open living area and general layout (however, with the kitchen on the top floor, there are a fare amount of steps to climb with groceries). We really enjoyed our stay here because it was well represented on the website, and truly everything we were looking for!"
