Great location. House needs lots of TLC
The pros: Cove realty was amazing at handling the issues we had and they were friendly and easy to work with.
The location of the house was great. Literally about a football field walk to the beach!
The house is a good size and has an awesome deck. The description says parking for three cars when in actuality you could get four or five compact cars in the driveway. The home has an outdoor shower with both hot and cold water that is perfect for removing sand before heading inside.
Lots of extras were already provided like hand soap, dish soap, trash bags, spices.
Once the unit cooled, the AC worked great!
The cons: first and foremost in the main bathroom there appeared to be water damage on the floor to the point that the floor was soft to step on. We were careful to steer clear of the area for fear that someone would fall through the floor. Underneath the house the water damage in the area was very visible (black mold) and actually much larger than just the area noticeable from the inside. It felt unsafe.
The home wasn't horribly dirty but wasn't clean upon arrival. Previous tenants' linens were left in the unit along with our clean linens. And we had to figure that out on our own. Luckily we figured it out before someone in our party used a dirty towel or put dirty linens on the bed. The floor had to be vacuumed and the table and counters had to be wiped (turned the Lysol wipe black), but the bathrooms were shiny clean.
There is NO WIFI and I had no cell phone service. I feel like whining about that, but someone else may appreciate that.
The cable TV only worked on the main tv in the living room and only had very basic channels.
The appliances are outdated. During our stay, we were unable to use the oven for two days because when attempting to preheat it, the knob cracked in half and broke off. Cove handled the issue as best as possible and eventually replaced the stove entirely. So that appliance is good now, but the fridge took forever to cool back down after stocking it with groceries. Then once it finally cooled down, it froze our eggs and groceries that were placed in the back near the vent. Also no ice maker in the freezer. No garbage disposal. Washer works fine if you wash a small load. The dryer took at least two cycles to dry towels. Small load of clothes took only one. The vacuum didn't work well- only minimally.
I would stay again ONLY after some updating and repairs.
Thank you for your feedback on this rental home. We will definitely be forwarding this information to the owners of this home so they can address your concerns for the 2018 season. I will also be sending this to our cleaning manager so that the crew responsible for this rental home can be addressed about your concerns.
I hope that, aside from these issues, you were able to enjoy your stay, and we hope to see you again!
Absolutely disgusting! Run down and dirty. Bugs Bugs bugs
House was never swept before arrival. Bugs covering the floors in every room. So bad they had to call terminex to come spay the house. We were not allowed in for 4 hours. No effort made by cove realty to make it right.
We're very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at this property. We strive to make every vacation as comfortable as possible and do apologize for the beetles that you encountered in the home. And after our conversation about remedying this issue, while we both agreed to have the home professionally sprayed the next day while you were out fishing, I'm very sorry to now hear that this was not to your satisfaction.
After the spray, I had called and left a message to see if we could do anything else to further remedy this issue, but never heard back from you. However, since I'm now discovering your ultimate dissatisfaction with your entire stay, please let us know if we can do anything to regain your trust and create a pleasant vacation for a future stay here in the Outer Banks.
