Cant wait to come again!
We LOVED my sound view and the view was amazing. The only thing that put a damper on our stay is hurricane Dorian. But that's mother nature. We had to evacuate on wed. We really were sad to go.
The view of the sound was amazing! Our grandchildren loved the decor. There was a pirate room with a treasure chest, a beach room with fake palm trees, parrots and monkeys, and model boats everywhere. There were lots of children’s games in the play room.
However, the linens were thread bare and needed to be replaced. The mattresses were old and uncomfortable.
Thank you for your feedback. Ellen and I take great pride in making our home a great vacation experience for our guests. Based on your comments we have already purchased some new mattresses. Unfortunately the linens are not within our control as they are supplied by rental management company. I will pass along your input and request they do better in the future.
Soundview is a beautiful house and fit our needs for our vacation perfectly! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook and serve a fabulous meal. The multiple decks are great for relaxing and watching the sunset over the sound. The living areas are large, but cozy and are just right for relaxing after a busy day at the beach or exploring the Outer Banks. The bedrooms are comfortable and are decorated nicely. Bathrooms are clean and everything operated as expected. The pool and hot tub were wonderful for starting or finishing out the day. We even made use of the grill and patio dining areas two nights. We did have an issue with the air conditioning on the second floor, which required a part that took a few days to arrive, but the property managers brought in window units while they were waiting for it. Overall, we all highly recommend Soundview for an OBX vacation and will definitely stay again if we come back!
Thank you for posting a review. We hope that the property management company was responsive to your maintenance issue. This is why I pay for someone locally to manage the property!
We loved this home. Our family ranged in ages 2-65 and It fit all our needs.
The pool is nice for relaxing and I loved the swing by the sound. The kitchen is amazingly stocked with everybitensil, dish and pan you could ever need. There is a fully stocked game and movie closet downstairs that we didn’t find until the day we left. The only thing I would change would be the latches on a few of the doors were not secure and having little ones we were very nervous about them having access to the pool. Registration was confusing as the house was listed with two businesses that did not work together. It caused a lot of frustration on our end and when it was said and done, we ended up paying $300 more than what it was listed with the other company. Being the first year with the new company, hopefully next year it willl be listed with only one group. Owner was easy to communicate with and very friendly !
Not bad for first time
First time renting a beach house. Elan serviced well. Lots of small issues with house (fridge with nasty rotten fish smell, screen door and DVD player broke) but overall a nice place. With these issues addressed would stay again. Right on the water made for amazing sunsets; lots of bugs as one might expect at the edge of a marsh. Enjoyed the hot tub and billiard table.
All these issues are the responsibility of the rental management company, Elan. I am not pleased that these issues were not resolved to the guests satisfaction....I will be changing the rental management company in 2018
We had an amazing time here, Thank You Richard!
Glad to hear it...hope to have you as our guest again.
