Recent Manteo reviews

  • Perfect!

    "The Baum Cottage is perfectly located within Manteo's historic district, an easy stroll from Festival Park, the marina, restaurants, art galleries and shops. It's perfectly clean and inviting, well-appointed and cozy--like staying in your favorite relative's home--assuming your relatives have good taste! I especially appreciated the small touches throughout that give it personality and make it feel like home: lovely artwork, quality dishes and glassware, great books. Would I book it again? I just did!"

  • Sanctuary

    "What a lovely home-away-from-home, but without the daily reminders of chores and obligations. This lovely loft cottage is located a short stroll from the waterfront shops, restaurants and park and a short drive (or intrepid bike ride) to beach. If it rains, you will not mind hanging out in this place. It is sweetly and tastefully appointed and immaculate! And if you do have perfect weather, you will be sure to spend time on the private deck on days you don't feel like running around. I would definitely come back to this place."

  • Best in obx

    "Once again 5 star rental from these wonderful owners! This is the second property we have stayed at that they own. So clean and big. The deck is amazing as well! Bars and great food within the community. We are beach goers so we know a great rental when we see one. Already planning next summer with these owners rentals!!!"

  • Beautiful condo but be ready for a few hours of early morning cleaning before you check out

    "Jeanine was very nice to talk to during the whole process. She was helpful in providing restaurant & sight-seeing recommendations. The condo was clean, spacious, updated and in a very convenient location. Having a lot of space is convenient on days you're stuck in the condo due to rain. We were able to watch the July 4th fireworks right outside the condo. Outdoor deck surrounded the unit. That was also our favorite part especially in the morning & evenings. She was very responsive with all the requests. She also installed wifi before we arrived. We had an issue regarding a credit card fee charge where she deducted 2% from our deposit but was resolved through VRBO's help. Parking was also convenient. Many restaurants & activities are nearby & we were able to quickly get to Nags Head. The unit is situated in a quiet neighborhood perfect for couples & families. The downside is the same as others have noted. The amount of laundry & cleaning that was required was VERY unreasonable considering we paid $100 for cleaning & checkout was at 10:00 a.m. (we had the cleaning lady knocking on our door at 9:40 a.m.) She requires all sheets, blankets & towels to be washed, dried & folded and all dishes washed & put away. We started the process at 6:00 a.m. Drying towels takes longer during high humidity. My husband & I shared a towel on the last morning to avoid having too many to wash. She also had 2 pages of other instructions. The dumpster for the garbage was far away from the unit & we had difficulty in getting the garbage into the dumpster. My husband and I have rented many units through VRBO, Homeaway, Flipkey & Airbnb and this by far required the most work and yet we were still charged $100 cleaning fee. My sister who stayed with us from Seattle is also a traveler & found the requirements ridiculous. If she can provide the cleaning lady an extra set of linens for the next guest (she can always use a drop off laundromat for the dirty set), have people pay the numbers they see on the reservation page with no surprises (all fees should appear on that page & not within the property description - raise the rent if you need to net a certain amount) and ease up on the 2-page checkout instructions which are mailed, emailed & left in the unit, this would be the perfect rental."
