I usually don't go back and take the time to leave reviews but felt compelled to do so. We decided last minute with 3 other couples to take a trip to OBX for some much need fun and R&R. We found this place online and were a bit skeptical due to the cost of the partial week. We could stay here for less then 2 hotel rooms that were down the street. When we arrived to the house and pulled up we were surprised to see a large home that was beautiful and looked just like it did in the pictures of the house. We went inside and were further surprised, the online pictures must of been outdated as the inside was better then the pics and the house must of recently under went some interior upgrades. The 6 large bedrooms were more then enough for the 8 adults, we could of easily brought along our 6 kids and had plenty of room for all. The main level was beautiful and very comfortable. The large kitchen was perfect for the several meals we cooked and the dinning table was huge and big enough to sit a army of people for a meal. The living room furniture was super comfy with plenty of comfortable viewing areas for all while we settled in to watch some of the NCAA March madness action.
The close proximity to several restaurant/ bars, golf courses, beach, and a new water park opening this Summer had us all looking to book our 2017 Summer vacations back at this house. We were sad to see it already booked for weeks we could come back but not surprised. We are jealous of the people that beat us to this week. Needless to say we will be planning other weeks at this house and are already keeping a eye open for them to open up 2018 Summer weeks so we can jump on the week we want.
Going Coastal is the perfect house for a large group. My family had a wonderful time here and made fun memories. The house is quite spacious and has a great beach vibe. Having both a pool and hot tub was an added bonus. The location is ideal as it's a short walk to the beach and close to many restaurants.
I can't wait to go back in a few months.
This place was amazing....private, spacious, with a great location. The place must have had recent renovations because it looked and felt like a new house. We will be back this summer!
We stayed at this property in July 2016 and were not pleased for the amt of money spent. The house has a nice look upon arrival. ,No immediate red flags. But we experienced one problem after another during our stay. The management company was slow to respond to the many issues we had. You should not waste your money here. Find a place that is clean and doesn't smell like mildew from the leaking shower.
The outside: The carport and area around the pool was dirty. No worries... the pool guy is coming, right? Well, the pool guy doesn't clean the trash, BROKEN GLASS and general uncleanliness around the pool. He only cleans the pool itself. The property manager's response was that each owner arranges their own pool service... so it's not their fault. Awesome, thanks. Broken glass around a pool is unacceptable. Previous shoes left from other renters, broken pool toys strewn about.
Most importantly, the shower in the king bedroom was leaking. Not a small leak, but one that POURS water into the bunk BR below it. NO wonder the smell down there was a mixture of dank foulness and mildew. Our first calls to the property manager were ignored. A few days later we finally got a response but for the duration of the week we couldn't use the bathroom or the bedroom below. The maintenance guy indicated that this shower has caused a leak four times. Apparently the owner doesn't want to fix the problem. I'm telling you... RUN AWAY from this place.
Not enough kitchen silverware or bowls. If the place rents to 13-14 people, then there should be enough for people to use. It's that simple. (Manager response... people steal things)
Top floor bathroom sink won't drain. (Manager response... we didn't know) They have a cleaning service... are they actually cleaning?
Kitchen cupboard shelves broken (couldn't store our food anywhere)
Missing batteries for remote controls
Blinds missing from the windows
Doors to deck wouldn't lock
Broken kitchen chairs
So after we complained for weeks after we left they offered a small amt of compensation. It wasn't enough. Would you want to take the chance?
This is a two fold problem.
1. The owner doesn't care enough to provide a clean, safe, well-appointed home for the money.
2. The property manager (Outer Banks Blue) already has your money and is not motivated to compensate you for the poor quality of the house.
There are a ton of houses in the Outer Banks... stay somewhere else.
I stayed here last year after the upgrades and the place is beautiful...Very private, great outdoor space, and just a nice, quiet two block walk to the beach.
We stayed in this property twice last year with 6 adults and 6 kids and had more then enough room. This year we are bringing another family to help fill up the house. We like to have a good time and stay active so this place had it all for us, a very short walking distance to the beach made it easy to take our young ones back and forth as needed. The decks on this place are amazing they kept going and going, also the side yard was a nice perk we enjoyed setting up our corn hole boards and various games, also it gave the kids their own beach!
Nights were a blast, when we weren't just kicking back and hanging on one of the nice outdoor decks we were walking to some of our favorite bars/restaurants within a block or 2 from the house, there were at least 4 or 5 we could all walk to which was great! All of this and being on the ocean side and not having to deal with any of the highway traffic in and out or during the week was a added bonus. We will be booking Going Coastal any time we come down to the OBX from now on!
