Six Stars Out of Five (Part 2 of 2)

Review continues, part 2 of 2...
A note about the beach itself: world class. At low tide, the beach is as wide as a football field is long. The sand is white and squeaks under your feet. The ocean is clean, and during our stay we had no issues with jellyfish, sharks, horseflies or other critters. Our kids really got into body-boarding this year, and surf conditions ran the gamut from almost flat to big enough to scare you. Each day brought something different and interesting.
A note to the reviewer (“Shawn”) and others who might be concerned by that review – I saw no evidence whatsoever of Gestapo-like observation, intrusiveness, or nit-picking. Exiting requirements were far from onerous. Try staying in the Outer Banks where you practically have to clean the entire house yourself before leaving! Mark and Christina are thoughtful enough to stock disposable cups and plates for use on the morning of departure so you don’t need to waste time washing dishes and putting them away. They don’t have to make it so easy, but they do.
Finally, if you think that a family “emergency”, hurricane, or whatever entitles you to a refund or other considerations by any vacation property owner, then I have three words for you: buy travel insurance. That’s why it exists. Once you sign a contract, honor it. There is no doubt in my mind that Mark and Christina go way beyond fulfilling their contractual obligations. They deserve responsible and considerate renters. Christina refunded my deposit within 36 hours of our leaving.
Thanks again for a fantastic vacation. It was worth every minute of the 14 hour drive to experience such a relaxing time.
