Another lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Big Blue and we were just as pleased and happy as the first time. It was clean and very well stocked. The ocean and lake views are so nice. The elevator is so helpful as my Mother simply cannot do lots of stairs. She was able to move from floor to floor and always be part of everything thanks to having it. Since I know the this area and rental environment well, I feel confident in saying that you get good value in renting Big Blue.

Beautiful rental with a view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second year in Big Blue and loved it! The immaculate rental has everything you need and more! It was great having a downstairs our adult sons could share and each floor had a lovely balcony/deck with chairs to enjoy the view! We loved sitting on the deck enjoying the breeze and the view of the ocean and beach. It was helpful having a washer and dryer and full kitchen. The elevator was great for bringing up the luggage. The property manager even came over when we couldn't figure out how to turn on the TV! It turned out we needed to just open the cabinets- LOL! He was so great to come by and he fixed a towel holder after it came loose. We loved being close to Wilmington and enjoyed the restaurants and shops there. We went back to Havana's restaurant, our local favorite, and so much is within walking distance. The shop above Squigley's ice cream is another favorite I purchased gift items in again this year. It is a wonderful rental and location. We just sat on the deck this year and were able to see Thursday night's fireworks without walking out to the beach area so that was fantastic! I would recommend this rental to anyone with older children who would appreciate having their own floor! We also loved strolling around the lake. Thank you for sharing this wonderful rental with us!

Beautiful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

The most organized, well equipped rental I've ever stayed in! Kitchen has pretty much everything you could want, and with beach chairs, bikes, and beach towels included, packing was super easy!

Beach access is just outside the door, with beautiful ocean views and nice porch seating. The unit is tastefully decorated- very beachy feeling but not at all kitschy like some can be. The owner and property manager were very responsive. I would recommend without reservation!

It was our first time to Carolina Beach and we had a ball! Much much quieter than a Myrtle or Ocean City, but still a cute boardwalk area for the kids (carnival rides, ice cream, doughnuts, putt put, etc). Plenty of space on the beach too.

Memories Made at Big Blue 😀

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8, with one in a wheelchair, absolutely enjoyed our stay at Big Blue. We loved that there were all the extras that we didn't have to purchase at the grocery. We could just focus on food. Very clean and a wonderful layout. Beach towels, beach chairs and the bikes were an awesome extra!!!! Wonderful memories were made for us at Big Blue. Thank You

Families Beware

  • 2 of 5

The overall centrality of the location was great. We were able to walk to all of the daily attractions. Unfortunately, "children welcome" has unlisted exceptions. We were traveling with small children who behave...well you know like small children. They property had no kid friendly eatery so our kids had to eat off of paper towels and counters (2 year old and 4 year olds don't do well with breakable plates and cups). This resulted in more than necessary dirty hands and lots of extra cleaning during the stay on our part. Overall, as parents of small children we realized it was their vacation but would have been nice to relax a little in the evenings after they went to bed. Them there was the downstairs neighbor.

The downstairs neighbor called and complain about noise from them during the day to the property manager. Who apparently is friends with them and told us if the noise continues they will kick us out. The rest of the stay we had to suppress our children's natural enthusiasm and restrict them to the top floor. The neighbor complained about us using the elevator "30 times an hour." This would have been quite a feat as it takes the elevator 2 minutes round trip, you can do the math as to what that would have required. For rest of the trip we had to walk up 4 flights of stairs carrying 2 young (but not that light) children each. Normally would have had the children walk but several times a day and after trips to the pier and beach does not leave the kids with much energy. And of course couldn't have them upset in the hallways.

All of this would have just been chalked up to an annoying neighbor, except they had the nerve to complain about this in an email to me 8 days after checkout. With the added exaggeration of the property manager coming to the property because of it, we didn't see him since check in. In this email contained a categorigal list of charges which they were charging us for "damage." Apparently they have not taken reasonable precautions to protect their furniture. Being a property owner who rents as well, many of the damages should have been resolved with stain removal and normal cleaning. Fortunately we took out insurance for damages which they are charging. This further angers because according to their charges they expected us to do a complete thorough cleaning and were upset their cleaning service had to do things like wipe counters and walls.

Young children are not welcomed and does not makeup for location.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Big Blue. Our goal is to ensure all our guests feel comfortable and have a wonderful vacation. As you can see with our reviews, we take pride in offering a clean comfortable home to our guests. We have provided you with pictures of the damages and this is the first time in 8 years that we have withheld money from a damage deposit, and damages were well above the deposit. We are sorry you had to suppress your 6 children’s natural enthusiasm during their vacation. The unit below is a vacation rental as well and was occupied by a guest during your stay. Until your visit, we have never received a phone call, nor had our property manager, who does not manage any other unit in the building therefore he isn’t “friends”, address a guest regarding a noise compliant from others in the building. He received multiple phone calls concerning children screaming, woman screaming, children running, doors slamming, items being dropped, and the elevator going up and down before visiting you. As far as “kicking you out”, that would have been our decision and we did not know of the situation until after you had left. Our property manager handled the situation professionally by asking you to please be aware that there are other guests in the building who are there to have an enjoyable time as well. He also asked that the elevator to be used to enter and exit, but not as a toy for entertainment. Our cleaning crew arrived the morning of your checkout finding the following: doors unlocked and open; lights and tv’s on; trash including pizza boxes, food in refrigerator, food in cabinets, poptart wrappers and candy wrappers under beds; sippy cups full of chocolate drink under beds and in bathroom; chocolate spills on carpet; chocolate on porch railings, outdoor furniture, floors, indoor furniture, cabinet doors, entertainment center, and bedding; chewing gum stuck to the floor and in the dryer vent; sheets with orange, chocolate, and magic marker stains. Even with Scotchguard, we had the furniture cleaned due to the chocolate, pen marks and orange stains on cushions, arms, loveseat back, rocking chair, ottoman, dining room chairs, sofa pillows. Walls were washed due to chocolate handprints throughout the unit and there is a reddish stain on our cabinet doors. An additional person was hired, which we have never had to do before, for cleaning. Hopefully, your next visit to another home at Carolina Beach will meet your expectations.
