Great view, poorly maintained and smokers abound

  • 2 of 5

The good: Great view, nicely appointed kitchen, spacious living area with nice furnishings. The bad: a horribly sagging mattress, clogged shower drain, no water pressure (fixed within 24 hours), semi-functioning ice dispenser, pot-smoking neighbors in FFR114, chain-smoking neighbors directly above (there is a no-smoking policy), people with multiple barking dogs. We also had to clean/bleach the entire porch because the floor was full of sand and the furniture was caked with sand and black mildew. The guests should not have to do that. Would we stay here again. Not a chance.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. The building is smoke-free, so we apologize for your inconvenience; if you had reported to us or the HOA management company appropriate action would have been taken. Based on your feedback, the condo owner is replacing the mattress for 2017. We do hope you give us another opportunity to show you why First Flight Retreat is one the most popular condo resorts on the Outer Banks.

This property was clean and maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Excellent restaurants nearby (Port of Call, Kill Devil Grille, JK's, Barefoot Bernie's, Red Drum, Stack m Higher). Experiencing Hurricane Matthew was a first for us. We were disappointed that our week could not have been rescheduled so we made the decision to drive and take our chances. Unfortunately we were without power for 12 hours and unable to leave our condo due to flooding for 48 hours. It would have been a kind gesture for the rental company to offer some sort of refund due to the inconvenience of no power and not being able to get out to eat. If we return to the Outer Banks, we will definitely consider staying at First Flight Retreat.

Wonderful! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice condo! It is perfect for a couple getaway. My husband and I enjoyed our stay. The beach is very nice and so easy to access. We enjoyed one afternoon by the pool. There are plenty of places to eat, shop, explore close by. The condo was very clean.

We will consider this unit again, when in the area!

FFR108 Trview

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this property because of the great view of the ocean and the accessibility to the beach. The unit was modern and very clean. The unit would have gotten a 5 star rating, but we were disappointed that in the bathroom 3 bulbs were burned out and the TV in the bed room did not work. These things were corrected in a timely manner. The TV in the bedroom is very small, about 19 inches. I would expect a larger TV in the bedroom in a property of this caliber.

Great Beach Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at this condo. The beach front property had a nice view and the property appeared to be newly updated and well maintained. The only thing that we found to be a slight issue was this condo is located right next to the boardwalk out to the beach. The door leading out to the beach is right next to this unit and slammed shut often, especially on windy days. We got use to this noise. Other than small issue we had a really wonderful stay and would certainly come back to this property again.
