House suited our needs-property management did not

  • 2 of 5

We were there on vacation and my mom spent almost every day on the phone with Bonnie or the home owner, Phil, or the maintenance workers. Not the idea of a vacation. The house itself was as expected and we were satisfied with it- the issues and the fact that WE had to deal with the issues is my problem. We went through a rental company to avoid having to deal with the issues in the home.

We had several days with no TV which we had to call daily to discuss. We then had to wait for workers to arrive to fix the problem. We had to walk him through our issues and show him around the house. We also had to go through the house ourselves while on the phone with a technician to try and troubleshoot the problem ourselves- again not our home, we were on vacation.

Then the elevator broke at 5pm when my wheelchair bound father got in it to go up to his room from the basement. We placed a call for help and the technician arrived after 9:30pm. We had already figured out how to reset the elevator and get him out of it on our own. Again not what we wanted to be fixing on vacation in a home we don't own. The elevator broke once more two days later and we didn't bother calling this time bc it was quicker for us to handle it ourselves to get my dad out of the elevator.

Finally- our rooms on the second level were uncomfortably hot each night. We finally took notice that the thermostat was set to the desired temp but was holding at 6 degrees higher than set. So we called and again spent more time on the phone trying to get it fixed. Another repair guy came out and "fixed" it, we think. However, this now led to the basement ceiling pouring water down onto the ping pong table. We again- called to report the new issue and placed buckets and towels under the leaks. We had electronics sitting on the ping pong table before we noticed the water in the morning. The device still works but it's a shame it was saturated in water while in the "safety" of the home. We don't know if anyone ever came out to address this issue. There were also ants covering the inside bottom of the dishwasher discovered on the checkout morning.

I would think you guys would have spent more, if not all, of YOUR time addressing and fixing these problems. Instead, the vacation house became my mothers problem... and she ended up paying money and using up her vacation hours to fix/address your house. We received a late checkout by 2 hours-that we had to ask for, after all this.

A Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented this house for the past eight years and each time, the experience has been wonderful. Our daughter uses a wheelchair and so finding a beach house that is accessible can be difficult. The elevator and accessible bathroom are great. It is hard to find these features in a price range that we can afford. Also important is beach access. There are very few places along the beach for a person using a beach wheelchair to cross the dunes. From this house, the beach is about 350 yards away with roll on access - no steps - what a blessing!

The house itself is great. We have several families join us each year and the house accommodates us all nicely. All of the amenities are there. The owner is an incredible nice person and is always responsive to our needs. Our years of renting the house are a testament to how highly we recommend it.

Perfect house for a perfect vaca

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful family vaca with a full house. On arrival, house was nice and clean with ample fridge space. The house is equipped with all the amenities you could need, just pack light and come and enjoy. With the layout of all the large houses on the OBX (kitchen / main areas on the top / 3rd level) the elevator is AWESOME for the coolers / bags of food you bring! Short 5 min walk to the beach, workout center (passes were included) and down the street to the lighthouse / marina (10-15 min walk) where we had some fun crabbing with the children. Stores / fresh veggie stand a short drive away. The top deck is perfect for that morning coffee and sunrise and warm nights. Enjoyed quiet early walks on the beach every morning and even saw some horses. Pool area nice and large and separated by locked fence (little extra bonus with safety). Nice games for the family / kids to play on the lower level.

Owner very nice to work with and responds quickly. Renting this June again...they say they make improvements each year...can't wait to see what's new.

Perfect...

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our parents 40th wedding anniversary, and it was wonderful. There were 5 children and 7 adults and there was plenty room. The kitchen had everything we needed for making large dinners and everything was as described. My children loved watching the lighthouse in the evening!! And even if you don't think you will use the elevator..YOU WILL...so much easier than carrying everything up 3 flights of stairs...

I would recommend this house to anyone, and the owner personally called me to make sure everything was OK...nice touch..thanks again!
