What a house!!

Great location, great spot for fishing. You have two piers to choose from and the ocean. Right up the road are a number of restaurants. Great stay!

A Paradise It Is

  • 5 of 5

Overall, nothing but great things to say about this place. We give it a 10 out of 10. Very spacious! Wonderful pool area, hot tub, rec room, home theater and top floor dining area are superb. We would absolutely stay at this place again. We slept 29 here. The place advertises 32, but could advertise higher as there's an inflatable bed provided and many couches.

I spoke with the landlord about a few fixable matters. They may be fixed by now. These include:

1) Five of the plastic chairs found on decks and around the pool were broken. Recommend that more than five be replaced as there are too few. The wooden deck outside of dining area, in particular, needs more chairs.

2) Several TV's did not work (but there are plenty others that do work). Two in the rec room and one on the common area 1st floor area do not work.

3) The arcade in the rec room does not work. Fix it or replace it. A Foos ball table might fit nicely in that spot as well.

4) There was too few silverware. We bought a couple dozen and left some there.

5) If off summer season rental, discuss pool heating. It is not included if you don't specify and paid for it. We were not aware.

Not discussed with the landlord, but found later and should be fixed:

1) There are only two beach chairs in the pool storage area. Consider providing more.

2) One of the second floor bedroom bathrooms has a TP roll holder missing/broken.

3) Exterior tiles around the pool bar, grill, etc have fallen off. Get a mason in to fix these aesthetic things.

4) The rec room ice make does not work.

5) The loft couch middle cushion has a tear in the back and innerds are spilling out.

Again, don't let me comments above concern you. This place is a gem. Great place. Thank you.

Had a wonderful mini trip!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful mini trip to OBX. The house was amazing and comfortable for our large group. The movie room was clutch for kids who needed a break from the chaos of playing hard, and especially at night when it was time to unwind. We could play music at the pool while the kids watched peacefully in the movie room. Paul was great while we began booking the trip. Great house you should definitely consider booking it.

PERFECT house for large group of beach buddies!

  • 5 of 5

Paul was great at answering any questions I had before the trip. There were either 23 or 25 of us, not sure if we might have lost someone in that big house during the trip! Plenty of sleeping space, such an enormous house. Spectacular ocean view from the living area. I do a lot of Amelia Island trips, and I wish I could find accommodations like this to rent for our group beach trips there. Come on, Paul, find a house in Fernandina Beach like this one here and rent it out. :-) LOVED it! I definitely give it 5 stars.

The perfect place for an extended family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home was truly the perfect place for 5/6 cousins and all their spouses & kids to spend a weekend... tons of space for pockets of conversation with large areas for games, meals, fun, and play. The elevator was an unexpected blessing and the amenities throughout were thoughtful and made for a relaxing time for everyone. With ages from 2-65, a trip for 25 people could have been a challenge, but this home met all our needs and then some. We each felt perfectly at home... such a gift!

Poorly maintained home with no effort to make guests comfortable

  • 1 of 5

Though our families had a wonderful time at our weekend in Kill Devil Hills, it was very much in spite of the condition of the house that we rented. I have not stayed in the Outer Banks before, and quickly realized that *all* the homes in the areas are rentals - undoubtedly all managed by rental agencies, rather than individuals. It shows. All the little things about renting a home that make it so cozy and relaxing are notably absent in this one. The biggest issue: the place was disgusting. We moved couch cushions in two family rooms, and found old food, wrappers, and a half-empty bottle of juice. There was a thick layer of dust, and food particles under the couches in the main living area. The house was in bad shape - a canned light was hanging by a wire from the ceiling; one of the ceiling fans on the first floor had a light hanging from wiring; paint was chipping everywhere; the lining in the pool was clearly too big, so it's wrinkled all over the bottom of the pool; the deck boards leading out to the beach are popped up and dangerous. A painter showed up in the middle of our second day, unannounced, so they clearly weren't paying attention to their own rental schedule. They hadn't bought enough shower curtain rings for the house, so they literally just put half of the rings up, and the curtains just sagged in the middle. There were no extra towels; and there were no linens left for the pull-out sofa (there's only one, not two, as advertised). There was no hand soap in bathrooms, no dishwasher detergent, no extra toilet paper (which they hadn't bothered actually putting on the rolls), no paper towels - they didn't even leave trash bags. They apparently defrost the refrigerators for every single visitor (is this necessary?!?), so we had no refrigerators or freezers for the first 24 hours we were there (incredibly inconvenient when you're traveling in a big group with little kids, and you've brought snacks and drinks for them). When I booked the house, I received an emailing telling me that the cost was actually $1000 higher than advertised, which is just incredibly unprofessional. The contact person for the house couldn't have been less helpful - when I emailed him to ask about local caterers, he just said "I don't know." I use VRBO and Air BnB often, and I've never had such a gross, poorly maintained, poorly equipped house with such an unaccommodating company handling it. I couldn't give this more thumbs down.

Owner's Response: This is a 5 star home. A very important part of a vacation is communication. It is my goal for you to have a wonderful time at KDH Paradise. This home accepts partial stays unlike a lot of other homes managed by the rental companies who only accept weekly rentals. This beautiful home has been maintained by the same cleaning folks for the last four years with hardly any complaints. No one is perfect but they take care of my home very well. The rental companies do not provide more than a starter supply of toiletries just like we do. The house has a deep clean every year that takes 5 full days and was just done in March of this year. The new pool liner was put in by the same folks that handle all three of the houses to our left and have been taking care of all the homes for the last 5 years and done a fantastic job. We do provide a starter set of toiletry items etc but there is a Food lion and several stores less than a mile from the house to buy any household items you need. Most guests understand that an unlimited supply is not provided even with the "rental company" homes. There was a loose board on the private walkway to the beach that has been addressed by my maintenance guy. There is one sleeper sofa and also a queen air mattress that we bought to replace the other sleeper sofa which was damaged by a guest. Also, the home is on the oceanfront and faces the weather elements which is why we have just painted the ocean side and north side of the home. We strive to take excellent care of this home which is evidenced by the other 5 star reviews. The refrigerators are cleaned out by our cleaning crew and are defrosted for sanitary purposes. This is standard in the rental business. There are 2 refrigerators and an ice maker at this beautiful home. Also when contacted about caterers, I direct guests to contact Resort Realty who co-manages this house for us and is local for a catering recommendation. I do not live in the outer banks. Again, communication is so important to me and I strive my best to help all guests in any way However, if you are having a wedding or any special event at my home then there is a $1000 event fee. Rental companies charge $1500. When you come stay at my beautiful home, I hope you will come to enjoy the 8200 sq ft of luxury with theater room, amazing ocean views, and wonderful location. If there is any issue communication is very important. I want you to enjoy your vacation and come back to KDH Paradise again!
