Reviewer Comments:

This house had the potential to be very nice, but has some areas where it really needs attention. The location, layout and amenities are really nice. On the surface, it appears to be clean (as far as what housekeeping is responsible for), the pool and hot tub were nice. However, upon closer look, you could see that the bannisters were dirty and the vents in the livingroom were filthy. The front balcony and outside of the house were covered in spider webs and bugs. I had scrub the balcony on the 2nd floor myself including walls and ceiling and spray with raid just to be able to sit out there as it was infested with spiders and other bugs. There was no lawn maintenance, just weeds/sea grass and weeds were coming through the fence inside the pool deck. There were cockroaches outside and actually found 2 cockroaches inside the house! I realize it's more common in that area, but it doesn't seem like there's any attempt at pest control (I have photos of all of this). The WiFi never worked, despite me calling the management company twice about it. I could've been more persistent, but we were on vacation and other things took precedent during business hours. Aside from that, the stay was nice. If the owner gave any attention to some pest control and some basic exterior cleaning & landscaping, it could be a great place! We'll probably look for somewhere else to stay next year.

Reviewer Comments:

First time staying in this property. We arrived at 6:30 pm on check in day, cleaning person was still on site. The first impression of the house was the overflowing and reeking trash and recycling containers, which made us avoid using the front door until the mid-week trash pick up, due to the flies and stench surrounding them. The second impression was the stains and wet spots on the carpeting. A good bit of trash was outside and around the house, and strewn about the pool area. The grill area was littered with the remnants of their last grilling experience. There was even trash and food waste in the outside shower area. Dishes and cookware were put away dirty. It was surprising that bugs and roaches were not present. Whoever had this house before us was an absolute slob with no respect for anything. Most of the plastic pool area furniture was dirty and busted up. All too bad, because we actually liked the layout of the house, but the conditions left for us by the previous renter really soured our experience. I can not put this all on the cleaning staff, as they obviously were left a monumental clean up that they just could not get done in a couple of hours. And the last thing I wanted to do on the first couple of days of my vacation was clean up somebody else's mess, but that was what had to be done.

Reviewer Comments:

I should have paid attention to the reviews; twin beds and Queen Bed mattresses need replacing, poor quality. Fans need to be cleaned, lots of dust on the blades, bathroom rugs were dirty, I had to was them myself, hot tub ran continuously and we could not figure out the noise until the day we left. Had three phone calls from the management company about the beds but nothing was ever done, reported on the second day. Poison ivy and poison oak all around the poolside, growing through the fence. Pool furniture cracked and old. Not happy for the price I paid.

I have to say this was one of the best vacations ever. The house we stayed at was perfect for us in beautiful Corolla. Close to everything we needed and the public beach across from the lighthouse was perfect. It was the perfect week to be there

Reviewer Comments:

We had rented Alex's Nook three years ago. We had a GREAT experience THEN. Naturally, we were expecting the same experience. Unfortunately, IT IS NOT what we found. 1) NO ELECTRICITY UPON ARRIVAL - We arrived and the majority of the house was without electricity. I called several times customer service to resolve. By 10:30pm the problem was UNRESOLVED. Finally, I RESOLVED the issue, by locating and checking the major external breakers of the house and turning it on. 2) SWIMMING POOL - The news that the pool would be unavailable for an undetermined amount of time was a big blow. Your offices concern regarding "safety first", though well intended, was exaggerated. Thankfully, the pool was only unavailable for the first two days. Yet, prior to drastically prohibiting swimming, someone from your offices should've gone to check and truly access the situation. 3) WEAR AND TEAR - Stains in carpets, vacuum cleaner not working, lack of pans, carpet in main bedroom ripped, no broom, some bathrooms not very clean in the corners, bathtub in 2nd floor clogged constantly, many of the blinds bent or broken. 4) LANDSCAPING - The landscaping around the house was completely untreated. No one came to mow the lawn even ONCE in the two week period we remained kids and dog could not walk around it without injuring themselves. In conclusion, yes we were able to enjoy a great family vacation, once, as a family, we decided not to let the inconveniences bother us. Your offices DID make an effort to have the pool experts come as soon as possible, and also the garbage collector to remove the remains of the previous tenants (which had a horrible stench on the house upon arrival), for that we are thankful. This was the fourth year we've been your clients renting properties in Corolla. We will certainly re-evaluate next summer's plans.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the issues you find upon your arrival. One clarification, I did personally check the pool situation and felt it best to have it checked by a professional before allowing you to use the pool. So sorry for the inconvenience.
