Overview

About the property

8 Bedrooms, 8 Baths, Sleeps 20

This house -- situated on a large half acre lot in Section A of Ocean Sands -- offers all the popular amenities (elevator, flat-screen TV's, pool table) and is the perfect place all year long for family vacations and special events. This house was custom built by Beach Construction with high quality workmanship and beautiful natural wood trim and wainscoting.

This spacious, 5500 SF house with its open floor plan offers plenty of room for gathering together as well as enjoying private time in the many nooks and crannies (elevated tower and sunroom, mid-level landing and den) located throughout this well-designed house. This beautifully furnished, yet comfortable house can fill your vacation days and nights with relaxation and fun.

Enjoy spectacular ocean views and morning sunrises from every part of the top floor, including the large screen porch and deck area -- and enjoy evening sunsets from the elevated tower. There is easy beach access, with a walkway to the ocean being only a short walk (just 45 yards) across a quiet cul-de-sac. When you are ready for that all day at the beach, you will find beach chairs, umbrellas and beach cart for your convenience already at the house. There are also baby gates at the home for the little one's safety. If you decide to explore the area simply hop on a one of the bicycles at the house and enjoy the ride.

The 8 bedroom house includes a large well-equipped kitchen with stainless appliances, 42" refrigerator, double oven, granite counter-tops, a peninsula bar and an island; an up-to-date technology package (plasma TVs, surround sound satellite radio home theater in great room & media room and intercom); and a large (16' x 30') pool with a tiki bar, cabana bath, and outside speakers.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a very nice home - laid out very well for a large group. It's a very nice home, but not sure I would put it in a special occasion home category. It just seems like a normal home for this area (I guess the grassy yard would make it stand out)...Our concern with this rental is not the home, but the management company and dealing with them - we did have a few major problems when we got here - 1. No AC on the top floor (where everyone wants to be with the kitchen,etc) and it was 90 degrees when we arrived. Also, 2. The refrigerator in the upstairs, main kitchen was broke. The two issues were fixed in 24 hours, but we had to keep bugging to get any answers and there was no follow up or apologies at all. Also, this rental company gives you 20 towels period!!! No extras...just be aware and plan ahead. All in all OK house, but I probably would try another one, at least until the management changes.

Owner's Response: "Gertrude's Breakaway" is one of our most popular homes in our rental program. It is a well laid out house for large groups. Kitty Hawk Rentals certainly does apologize for that the 2 unforeseen issues you encountered that obviously presented such inconveniences for your family. The linens are provided based on occupancy for the house. Kitty Hawk Rentals does have available any amounts of additional linens through our rental services. We certainly do invite your family back to stay with us again in the future.

Nice home in good location...

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with a group of 18 last week and did have an enjoyable time, but there were a few issues that won't allow me to give this home 5 stars. First, when we arrived, the keyless entry did not work, we had to call to get a code to get in, then the alarm went off repeatedly for about an hour - finally someone came and disabled it the next day. Second, the AC on the top floor was not working for the first 24 hours we were there - it was over 90 degrees. Glad we didn't plan on cooking our first night. I called and spoke with two people who told me they would get back to me with timelines and they never returned calls. Someone did show up the next day to fix. When I did speak with someone they said the previous week had the same problem and fans were on when we got there - so the management was aware of problem and didn't fix it. Also, our top floor refrigerator was not working for first 24 hours too. It wasn't keeping food cool and a repairman came the next day. We had to put our food on the lower level. I was really annoyed because when I called they made it sound like we were stupid and it was our fault that the AC and refrigerator wasn't working - we know how these things work - they were BROKE!!! They did get the items fixed, but never followed up or apologized or offered any type of compensation.... My next issue isn't a complaint - just something we had never run across with other rental companies. We had 18 people in our house and they will only give you 20 towels - period, and they don't give you any type of floor mat/towel for the slippery tile. That means one towel per person - just be aware and bring more. They only give you 1 kitchen towel too. The house is very nice and spacious and in a great location, but it does need cleaned a little better - there were dust bunnies all over the place and the blinds were covered in dust. Nothing we couldn't live with. The hot tub is on the second level which is OK - but there really needs to be one by the pool also. We all thought we saw there were two when we booked the house, but there is only one. Also, we couldn't find out a way to open the cabana bath. We didn't call - we had already called too much. Overall a nice home - I don't know if I would call it a special event house - the only difference between this and many other homes around it is the nice, large yard. We may come back, but not sure - not happy with the response from management company with the issues we had.
