"Just returned from a week at Life O'Riley with three generations of our family and loved the house.
I have been renting in NC, DE or MD beaches for the past 20 summers and have never found a home so well equipped. I usually bring my own kitchen gadgets and cooking utensils, no need. The kitchen had everything you could need including a roaster, crock pot, waffle iron and griddle to make feeding a crowd easy. The well stocked guest closet with beech chairs, bikes for adults and kids and just about everything else you need for the beach/pool was great. The beds were very comfortable as were the couches. The kids loved having their own pool/game/living room and the adults appreciated that the home has two hot tubs, a large pool and slide and that each bedroom had its own bathroom, flat screen TV and access to a deck (except one that is about 20 feet from the sliders to the pool).
The location was great, especially for being able to walk or bike to just about everything. We really enjoyed spending time at the beach and the Duck shops/boardwalk, both were an easy walk from the house. In the afternoon when the kids were to tired for the walk, the community offers a shuttle around the complex to the beach and main road.
Lynn was very easy to book with, her manager was great at coordinating our check in and kept in regular contact with us. We of course were one of those families who broke something, the lock to the sliding glass door, but maintenance replied to us immediately, making the repair in about an hour.
Overall it was a great house that allowed for a great week at the beach, we will stay at Life O'Riley again and are looking forward to it.
A note about the check in and check out. Your paperwork will ask you nicely not to go directly to the house to try to check in early and to call the manager instead.....this will be a benefit to you at check out....I have rented at other houses and been asked to wipe down all the surfaces, vacuum, sweep/mop and so on at check out before the cleaners come in, that is not the case at Life O'Riley and I loved that....you have a minimal check list and are on your way back home. The reason you don't have a lot to do at check out is because of how meticulous the cleaning crew is after you leave...... don't interrupt the cleaning crew."
