Guestbook comments from the manager

Sarah at Paramount destinations was great to get us in this house in June. We always wanted to visit in the summer to enjoy the beach. We do prefer April :) less crowded. House was as advertised. Great pool. Nice private lot, about 8-10 minute walk to beach. Pet friendly which was great.

Over all it was not that bad but over all it was not that great.

  • 3 of 5

Just a few things could have made this stay such a better place

- Enough forks to accommodate the number of people staying there.

- Kitchen was ill equipped. Not a kitchen for those who plan on cooking every meal on their vacation.

- Decking in need of attention- nails/screws popping up and several of us caught our feet on them.

- Seating in living room was limited.

- No mop to clean kitchen floor.


Pool - was a bit shaded.

Plenty of decking.


Distance to beach

Rooms were very nice

Great parking

Very dirty and in need of attention

  • 2 of 5

The layout of the house is wonderful.

The house was very dirty.

The pots and pans were all scratched and the Teflon was coming off.

Things were broken, stained and in disrepair. Nails sticking up through the deck boards, broken furniture.

With some tlc and deep cleaning, this would be a great rental. But until then...I would choose a different house and even company.

At least until they get a new cleaning company.

I had even called bc I was concerned about the low reviews in regards to the cleanliness.

They told me they got a new cleaning company.

But it was just as dirty as people said. For 3000$ I would expect much more.

This house could use a few upgrades and be a lot cleaner!

  • 3 of 5

The house was cute with the lay out. Loved the white and teal look of the decor. The floors were absolutely yucky when we arrived. Vacuum cleaner is broke, so we could not vacuum the carpets when we left. Lots of dishes!! And cookware!! But inside the cabinets were dirty as well. Beds were very springy and hard. Dressers were falling apart. Pool was clean!! Pool water was perfect tempature. Had a few loose boards on the deck. A rat kept getting into the screen porch even with the doors locked. The washing machine has a huge rusted out hole in the top, hope nobody cuts themself on it. The carpets could be replaced. Just a few upgrades and this house would be perfect!! House is about 600 yards or more from the beach. You have to walk it, unless you drive to a public beach access. You honestly don't have to bring any cookware except for a crock pot. Everything else is there with tons of it, and huge pots and pans and skillets too. Might want to bring a few steak knives. Refrigerator is a little on the smaller side, would be nice to have a bigger one, or a second one located somewhere else. You are .5 miles from Food Lion as well, so great location. Privacy from the neighbors is also pretty good! You have trees blocking their views. I would love to come back, once a few improvements have been made! :)

Memorial Day Weekend at Sunset Strip in Corolla

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 4 nights. It was clean and spacious for us (5 adults and 2 kids). The pool was great and the house was very comfortable. We absolutely would love to rent again.

Sunset Strip

  • 2 of 5

Rating Details:

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

I was happy with the location.

The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.

The property manager was adequately helpful.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

This property desperately needs to be cleaned and updated. Nails were up on the deck, the cabinets were dirty inside, fleas in the carpet, dirty bedding etc. The upstairs master bedspread had multiple spots on it and the sheets on the bottom bunk bed were dirty. Bowls had been put away dirty with food in them, bugs were on the counter behind the canisters and appliances and dirt was inside the drawers that held pans. Also thin white curtains in the bedroom gave no privacy or blocked the sun. AT 6:00 am the room filled with sun and if you dressed you had to go into the small bathroom otherwise anyone on the deck could see right in your room.

The nicest thing about Sunset Strip was the pool. It was very clean.

Overall we were extremely dissatisfied with this property! We would never stay there again or recommend it to anyone.

We can assure you we have taken the appropriate measures to address these concerns. The Owner has updated the home for the 2015 season and welcomes suggestions. When your plans bring you back to the Outer Banks please consider giving us another chance to prove this was an exception and not the rule. Thank you!
