Guestbook comments from the manager

The home was very cute, nicely furnished, very comfortable bed. It was clean and had a gorgeous view right on the sound. The only thing missing was it's own pier. While it was known in advance there wasn't one, all the neighbors had one and it would have made the vacation a definite five star. We rented a kayak and had to drop it into sound sludge which was a drag. Again, a dock and pier would have made it fantastic. It's located right on the main thoroughfare but due to the sound front location - it's there or you're in the water. For us, the location was worth it. When you're in the back you don't hear the traffic and it's only heavy on Saturday/Sunday transfer days. We loved it and so did the dogs. It was wonderful having them with us. We would consider staying there again but if it had it's own dock and pier - we'd absolutely be there again!

Reviewer Comments:
This place is all about the location and a nice retreat for a couple. There were several misleading facts about the property fro it's advertisement, with the biggest item being that it came with a dock. The neighbors have a dock but have gone to great measures to make sure that the renters are not welcome and are considered trespassing. The house was not very clean and appeared to have been cleaned by the last renter rather than a cleaning professional. The kitchen was poorly equipped and a sharp knife was not present at all. Good luck cooking. Grilling out on the back deck was by far the highlight of this property. Overall we enjoyed our trip, but will not be returning to this property.

Reviewer Comments:
The "little reef" would NOT be a rental property that I would recommend. Upon arrival, we were locked out of the rental due to a faulty lock. We waited until 11am the next day to get the locks replaced. Inside the rental, there was a moldy shower curtain, missing air ducts vents for the air conditioning, the back screen door latch was broken, and one of the ceiling fan globes was cracked. Outside the rental was a backyard that had dozens of red ant hills, sand spurs and grass that was 6" tall. The dock led into a mud hole and was poor condition. The neighbors on either side have beautiful well kept yards with great docks which makes this one look even worse. The rental is right along a very busy Duck Road that had constant traffic all day. The location to the beach is good, about a 5 minute walk and the overall condition of the house is good. But if you're looking for a backyard to play in or safely walk a dog, or a place to sit on a quiet deck at night you might want to consider another rental property.

Reviewer Comments:
Nice location on the sound, and a short walk to the ocean beach. However, the stairs that lead to the access to the sound actually lead to a several feet of muck. It was hard to impossible to launch our kayaks from this spot.

The door keys did not work. I used the form on the app to notify the rental company about this. Never got a response. One of the screen door latches was broken, so we had to prop a chair against it when it was windy.

The space was roomy for two people, especially the master bedroom. It would be fine for a small family or two couples. Views were excellent.

Issues from the get go

  • 3 of 5
I arrived at the rental, as scheduled, on July 27. Upon arrival, I was unable to gain access to the home due to a faulty lock. I contacted the rental agency, Paramount Destinations, for assistance. The agent came with keys, but even she was unable to gain access. I was made to wait for almost an hour until a service tech could arrive. My dog and I patiently waited. When he did arrive, he notified me that he would have to come back the following day to replace entire lock mechanism. He also let me know that he had informed the homeowner of this problem previously and she chose to not fix it. I spent all of Monday morning (a bright, beautiful, sunny morning that I could have spent at the beach) at the rental, waiting for him as he was not going to enter the property if I was not there but my golden retriever was (understandable). I also notified him that the vents were missing from the air conditioning holes in the ceiling and that there was mold on the master bath shower curtain. He rectified these issues, as well as replaced the latch on the screen door on the deck. I still lost a 1/2 day at the beach, however. The back yard and dock area are not as the pictures lead you to believe . THe dock is not useable. The water it looks out on is overgrown with weeds and sludge. It could be a beautiful area if cleaned up and paid attention to, but in its current state, it is disgusting. In addition, I had to carefully monitor where my dog walked in the yard as there were dozens of red ant hills and several sand spurs (cacti) growing. One of these in a paw would have been terrible. Because of the hassle created by these issues and the inconvenience they caused, I requested a prorated refund (no more than what a day's rental would have been - to compensate for the time I had to wait) from the owner. I was informed by Paramount Destinations today that the owner refused the request. I would not rent this home. THe issues were not the fault of Paramount, and they were reactive to the issues. The issues need to be addressed by the homeowner, and by the looks of the other reviews here, she is not making an effort to listen to her renters. Unfortunate. I would not recommend this property.

Nice small cabin, but busy road and unusable dock

Reviewer Comments:
This cabin was clean and nice and small which was good since it was just my husband and I. We enjoyed the area and were happy to be able to let our dog off the leash at Duck beach to let him play in the surf.

However, Duck road is a lot busier that I had expected. There is essentially traffic 24/7 on the road not 20 feet from the house. You can't sit outside and not hear it. The windows are good quality, though, so if you sit inside with all the windows closed you can't hear the traffic as much. But who wants to do that on their vacation?

In addition the dock for the rental cabin to use drops you down into a muddy bank that's not very pleasant nor usable. The dock for use by the other half of the cabin is very nice, and leads out onto the water, but there's a sign on the rental cabin's sidewalk *leading to the nice dock* that says not to trespass onto their dock - not very welcoming.
