Great beach home
We were delighted by our stay at this property. We will rent again!
Wonderful beach house
We love this house! Everything was perfect. There is plenty of room for our family. It's a very short walk to the beach. The new kitchen is beautiful. We hope to come back again in the future.
July fun at the beach
Excellent property and very honest and attentive manager.
Mike sincere thanks from my family members for a truly memorable vacation.
We are already starting to look at dates for next year
My team and I stayed at Mike's home for a work project. The property was clean, well kept with nice views. Everything we needed was readily available and beds were comfortable. There are 2 kitchens in the house as well which was very convenient. Overall, I would definitely rent this home again. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to enjoy VA Beach since we worked the entire time but I could definitely see myself renting this for a beach vacation rental. Also, Mike was very responsive and easily accessible for any questions or anything we needed.
Convenient for everything but wonderfully private as well
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was spacious, had a lovely view of the ocean from the 2nd floor deck, beautiful private back yard w/outdoor shower and nice landscaping, convenient location, easy beach access, and we loved the private quiet neighborhood and beach. The areas we suggest improvement are: 1.) the master bed was terrifically soft and had a huge sleeping dent on the left side which made for rough sleeping. 2.) the sound proofing between floors simply does not exist. Just with walking about on the top floor early in the morning woke those in the bedrooms below. 3.) the kitchen is poorly equiped. With ten staying, there simply was not enough flatware especially spoons, no larger spoons for serving, very few serving bowls as well as pots & pans for cooking, and it was lacking kitchen appliances for use. For example, the only beater we found was olive green and looked like it was from the 60s. When we used it the beaters fell out while in use!! The kitchen did, however, have great knives. We would stay here again, but would need to bring kitchen extras if we did. One last thing, the Realty Agency was amazing! There was a wasp problem on the second floor deck during our stay resulting in several stings - thankfully no one was allergic. Atkinson immediately called for an exterminator and took care of the problem. Thanks for the use of this beautiful home!!
Thank you for your comments. We will make improvements as needed. At the start of the the Summer rental season, there was enough silverware/kitchenware to accommodate 14 people. Not sure what happened, but we will make sure lost/misplaced items are replaced as needed. As soon as possible, we will add a better beater and extra serving bowls to the two fully equipped kitchens which currently contain: many glass bowls/containers, pots, pans; two new frying pans; 2 toasters; 3 coffee makers, 1 blender, 1 electric grill; plates/coffee cups/glasses for 14 people, electric knife, wine openers, knife sets etc, etc, etc. Since there are two complete kitchens in the house, renters sometimes move the kitchenware from one kitchen to the other. This makes it look like there is not enough kitchenware but in fact the items have simply been distributed between the two kitchens. Also, the welcome letter in the house informs guests that the bed in the master bedroom has an added memory foam cover on the top of a Beauty rest mattress and that this top can be removed from the bed to make the bed harder. We thought that this would give our guests some sleeping options. Finally, the bedrooms are located on the second floor of the home with the kitchen and living rooms on the third floor above the sleeping areas. This is different than most traditional homes because the bedrooms are normally on the top floor preventing noise from above. The top floor in the rental home is covered with a beautiful wood floor and when walked on, can cause some noise for those on the second floor. Guest should be aware of this situation and should be considerate when people are sleeping.
I have been visiting Croatan for the past eight summers and this has been by far the best house I've stayed in!..lovely white kitchen , Fantastic views of the ocean from the living room and decks.. Rooftop deck was great to hang out on at night !Great flow on the upper level kitchen/living area. Easy walk straight into the beach.. .plenty of space for everyone.. Mike, thanks for the accommodations...we will be back!
