Could be cleaner and concierge not very helpful

  • 3 of 5
This was our 1st anniversary vacation and we had such a romantic getaway! With that said, the house was less than clean when we arrived with a very strong musty odor throughout. The concierge did supply us with a dehumidifier which helped minimally and was about the only useful thing the concierge did for us. We thoroughly enjoyed coffee on the upper deck each morning, falling asleep to the sound of the ocean crashing on the shore each night, and stepping out the front door to the beach!
The house could use some electronic upgrades, as well as replacing the worn out couch and carpet. I suggest replacing the old carpet with tile to prevent the mildew/mustiness.
With a little TLC and if the house keeper and concierge get it together, this place would be perfect.

Nirvana Stay

  • of 5
Let me start by saying we very much enjoyed that stay. Property I rated as 3 stars for the reason of upkeep. Simple things would have increased my rating.
No screens except on one window. We were going to the beach to enjoy the sounds and smells and couldn't keep the windows open. I realize the ocean air is challenging but most other houses had screens.
Shower curtain was torn
Couch concaved in, rather uncomfortable to sit on
Refrigerator was not cleaned well at all. We had to clean and put paper towel is drawers before we loaded our food in
Overall kitchen not very clean, some dirty dishes, especially silverware. Bugs in rug by sliding glass doors - whoever vacuumed needed to be more attentive.
Needs new pillows - we brought our own but if we hadn't I seriously would have needed to go buy some.
All very simple and inexpensive fixes (other than couch, maybe) but it would have made a major impact on initial impression if you walk in and see everything nice and clean.
Unfortunately for the owners the cleaning crew let them down on this week.

Had a great time, love the proximity to the beach!

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time, loved fishing from the pier. watching the older kids from the deck. Surprised to see that we didn't really need to take chairs on the beach, the deck was so close. Loved sitting in the hot tubs early in the morning, late at night.

Just had a great time and made memories for a lifetime! Great value! Will come back

Had awesome time with the family, unbelievably close to the ocean!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late at night due to traffic from New York, as we walked in we noticed the sounds of the ocean seemed quite close, when we woke up the next morning, we were greeted with a view that was simply divine!
Ocean was so close, we could keep an eye on the kids from the deck, fishing on the pier was great, loved the hot tub facing the ocean.
Lisa's pizzeria down the street has some great pizza on nights we were not up to cooking.
Loved the nightly bon fires we had on the beach.
Nirvana is one of the smaller homes, we were lucky enough to have it open the week we wanted, it was one of the closest homes to the ocean in a 5 miles radius that we walked every morning.

We look forward to coming again. Grandparents, kids, pets all had a fun memorable vacation!

So much potential, but currently many safety issues

  • 2 of 5
First off, the plusses. You could not ask for a better location. The ocean is literally right at your feet here. The fishing was amazing. The owners are easily contacted and great to work with. The maintenance company is professional and friendly. The house was perfectly cleaned when we arrived. Rodanthe is beautiful and Nirvana house could be an absolute jewel in its crown.

However, there are serious issues with the house that need to be addressed. We had to call the maintenance company for some of them, they were such safety hazards. Spindles missing on the upstairs deck, creating holes big enough for children to fall through. Heavy windows that slammed shut with enough force to seriously damage a person. A deck board that was rotted out so badly one step would have sent you right through it. And those were just the ones we asked to have addressed during our stay.

When we first walked into the house, we were met with a smell of mildew so overwhelming it made all the children start coughing. One of the lower bedrooms reeked of whisky. Screens were missing or ripped, and since there were several possums and feral cats spotted prowling the neighboring decks, we couldn't leave doors open to enjoy the breeze, since we didn't know what would creep in. A window in the dining room is so leaky that during the rainstorms, the wall had rivers of water running down it, and we had to put down several towels on the floor to soak up the puddles. The heavy sliding door that led out to the main deck was missing the interior handle, so whenever you wanted to go out on the deck, you had to figure out how to slide the door open and closed without slamming your hand in it.

For the price and location, I didn't expect a beautifully appointed home with updated decor and five star luxury. But I also didn't expect such a place with so many safety issues. If some money was put back into Nirvana house, it really could reach its full potential. A few of the issues that a previous renter noted from their stay two months before had not been addressed (that board with rusty nails is still sitting there under the deck, for example), but when I called the maintenance company, they sent someone within 24 hours to fix the deck spindles and rotted board.

With so many larger, flashier houses in Rodanthe, I really want Nirvana to shine, to show them that bigger isn't always better. I think with effort, this can happen.

Owner's Response: First let me say I am very pleased you found the home nice and clean! I do want to thank you for pointing out the issues in your email. As you can see by past reviews we work hard to keep the home in great shape and although small most guests do find it a perfect fit, clean and well maintained. We have many plans this fall and winter including replacing some carpet, repairing the window and other minor issues that need to be addressed. We do hope you'll visit again, would look forward to showing you the upgrades planned for the winter months!

Ocean Front and Center

  • 5 of 5
We've been renting houses at OBX for over a decade, and have learned that people have different styles of enjoying a beach vacation. For us, first is location, location, location. We want to feel the beach, not just see it. At Nirvana, you step off the deck stairs into the sand, and at high tide you’re just a few paces from submerging in the ocean. Picture rolling out of bed, pulling on your trunks, and in seconds, diving in for a cool swim, followed by a nice hot outdoor shower! As a surf nut, albeit a much older and less capable one, I was thrilled to find the house faced a sandbar offshore that created surfable waves daily, and also a following of surfers -- great amusement watching from the decks.
Although there are other houses close on each side, Nirvana is a few feet forward of them which makes them not feel imposing when on the decks, and the closeness to the high tide mark pretty much guarantees your beach space right out front. The deck and the living space seating was more than adequate and comfortable for the four of us and the hot tub was well maintained. We cooked all our meals and found the kitchen quite practical for that -- new stone counters were appreciated. The house is not pretentious, but as comfortable as can be, and who could ask for more (well granted, some folks have other standards and a need for elegance). But for me, Nirvana is a fine beach house, with responsive owners who obviously have focused on providing what’s important. And nothing could be more elegant than the Atlantic which is there for you, up close and personal all the time. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nirvana.
