Guestbook comments from the manager

When we finally arrived at our vacation rental ( it took us 6 hours to drive the last 10 miles) we knew we had struck gold! The house was absolutely gorgeous and decorated to perfection. The pool and hot tub were a dream come true and spotless. The storage room contained every imaginable pool and beach toy for my grandchildren as well as a beach canopy and sand chairs. It also contained an extra refrigerator to store food and beverages! The kitchen had every small appliance we could possible need as well as plenty of dishes, silverware, pots and pans, bowls etc. It was like being in my own kitchen. We loved that there were two dishwashers. There were games and puzzles, Wii and an arcade style game which were great for the children because we did have some rain. The fact that we were only 200 feet from the beach was a big plus! We had several small problems with the house and management was there to fix them immediately! We loved the fact that Duck was only 1 1/2 miles away and had a nice grocery store that sold everything. We also enjoyed the many shops at Scarboeough Fair. We walked the boardwalk in Corolla and went to the wild life center which was very interesting. There were so many restaurants to choose from and we had luch at the Sunset Grill which was very nice. All in all it was an incredable vacation and we thank the owners of Checkmate for sharing their beautiful home with us! We would definately recommend this home to anyone interested in going to OBX!!!

Best house ever at OBX

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful vacation due to pool, easy access to the beach, a very clean home that was ready for our early arrival. We, our kids and grandkids enjoyed the wide-open layout of the main floor. Great for playing cards, making puzzles and crawling around for the one-year-old (with our portable gate for the stairwell). Awesome week!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we enjoyed our experience at this house. It was relatively close to the beach on the ocean side and was about equi-distance from Kitty Hawk and Duck.

The house could comfortably accommodate 5 couples and 2-3 children. It was nice to have a bathroom connected to each bedroom.. The towels provided were thin and scratchy and beach towels were not provided. The pool, hot tub, children's play structure, and wrap around decks were all a plus. Some of the beds were a bit stiff and uncomfortable. The kitchen was generally well stocked with odds and ends, but lacked a few things, like a cookie sheet, lids to fit pans, and Tupperware. There were two dishwashers, which came in handy with a large group.

Overall, the house was nicely decorated in a modern/contemporary style. While the house was cleaner than some of the rental houses in OBX, it was the end of the summer, so the house really could have used a good deep cleaning before we arrived. There was noticeable dirt on the white chair in the living room. The light switches, walls, and the dressers were visibly dirty and covered in fingerprints. The shower curtains were moldy and mildewy. We washed all of the bedspreads before sleeping with them because we didn't trust that they were clean and put a sheet on the couch because it seemed dirty, as well. The refrigerator had food drippings inside, too. We wiped down a lot of surfaces with bleach wipes to disinfect when we arrived.

We were a bit disappointed by all the "hidden" fees associated with renting the house, but by the time we realized this, it was too late to search for another rental house instead, so we just went ahead and rented this one.

The rental house was very comfortable and located in a great place with a short walk to the beach. Paramount Destinations was very easy to deal with and made for a relaxing vacation.

This is a beautiful house and property with a great location not too far from the beach or Duck. We enjoyed our stay but traffic getting to NC from VA was terrible so this will be our last visit unless they solve the accessibility problems.

We have been vacationing in OBX for ten years and this, by far, has been our favorite house! We bring twelve people with us needing six bedrooms and this house had plenty of room for all of us. The house was clean, the pool big and lovely, and the house is only a very short walk from the beach allowing us to walk back and forth as needed. We will definitely rent this house again!
