The house itself was great...nice, clean, spacious, relaxing, everything that you need is there! Beach access is literally right across the road and the views from the decks are awesome!! The luggage lift is a great bonus. Also, if I were staying at this house, I would like to know that there are beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrella, and a beach cart available for you to use right in a closet in the house! Awesome! We had a great time and can't wait to come back!!! :)
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Had more problems with the rental company than with the house. Bug problem that company never showed up after being called. Cable tv problem that was never resolved. Pool was not cleaned during the week.
House location was excellent along with pool and hot tub.

Enjoyed our week here. Second time staying at this home. Luggage lift is a great addition. Pool is a little small but worked out great for the kids. Love the location...short walk across an empty lot to the beach and an ocean view! The hot tub is great for some adult time in the evening.

I have been coming to the outer banks since the 60's. many changes have occurred over the years. I can honestly say this was our best beach experience. The location and the house was perfect. I can't wait to return next year. Resort realty was great to work with.. Thank you for making our stay pleasant.

We enjoyed our stay. The house was great. The master suite bed was the first bed in a beach house in a long time that felt just right. Loved, loved, loved the dumb waiter. We even had walkers stop that stare and say they wished they had one. Small pool. Great trip!
Too bad we only had one Week

We have stayed in this rental before with the prevues owner it was nice that is why we returned each year. We had made some suggestions but didn't really see a change. The view is great even thou you're not beach front you feel as thou you are. Our family loves the beach but also loves the Hot Tub, Pool, and just hanging out on the upper deck watching the day pass by. The new owners have done a lot of improvements to the property.The lift for cargo to the first and second floor is a God send for luggage and food. Before is looked like a rental now it looks like a home with a personality and the new owners are committed to your happiness and will reach out in e-mail. Than you for a great week.
The perfect beach house!

This home has plenty of room for everyone and a great layout.
Beach views and access were superb!
Beach chairs, umbrella, beach buggy, pool toys all provided and appreciated.
The bedding appeared to be fresh and new and the house was clean and well kept.
Appreciated the outside cargo lift.
Look forward to coming back again!
Beach house that was relaxing

This home was a nice beach house, but, I did spend one day scrubbing all the floors that were so sticky and dirty. Actually when I was in the one bathroom, after washing my hands when I went to step back from the sink, my flip flop stuck to the floor and I almost fell. I was disappointed that there were no instructions on how to operate the hot tub. Because when we arrived late on a Saturday, until we went to use it it was late and it was not working and could not call re: this issue. We waited until the next day to call about the hot tub not working. Resort Realty acted very quickly and had someone there in a couple hours and had it fixed and it worked great the rest of the week. We were also informed at the time we rented this home that the towels and linens were included. When we arrived there were no clean sheets or towels to be found anywhere. There were used sheets and towels in the container on the carport. But once again until we got there and got everything unloaded it was to late to contact anyone re: this. We ended up running to the store to find stuff to get us through to the next morning. When I made the call to Resort Realty on Sunday they said they could send someone with clean stuff to us, but by that time we had the situation covered. I declined on this offer. I really feel that we should have been reimbursed, since this was to be included and that we had to spend extra money on this. The lady I spoke to at Rsort Realty said that she would check into this and get back to me. She called back shortly afterwards and said that we could not get reimbursed. But stated that the owner would be the one getting reimbursed since they pay for the service. I as a renter also paid for this service and did not get anything, except a hefty bill to purchase sheets and towels. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to review "Absolut". We are sorry to hear about the challenges you faced when you checked in. The home does include the sheets and towels at no additional cost to you, and we apologize that they were not delivered to the home. We would have loved to have an opportunity to come out and rectify the cleaning issues to your satisfaction. Once again we apologize and hope to see you again soon.

The house, overall was exactly what we wanted. The beach was close, it has a pool and hot tub and was the perfect size for us. However, the air conditioning on the top floor was not working and it took 3 days to finally get the problem resolved! Some of the controls in the hot tub did not work and the jets in the second floor bath tub also did not work. Minor inconveniences except for the air. Also, whoever cleaned the house before we got there didn't do a great job as we found potato chip crumbs behind the blender on the kitchen counter. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to comment on Flip Key and sharing your experience at “Absolut”. All issues you mentioned about the top level AC, jet tub and outside hot tub have been brought to the attention of our Management staff so that they do not occur again. The owner of this home will also be made aware of your comments. Again, thank you for your time and Resort Realty hopes you will vacation with us in the near future.
The weather was changeable, but we enjoyed our stay.

This was our first trip to the outer banks. We liked it. We managed a few beach days, as well as two days on the waverunners seeing dolphins in the sound. The other days it rained sideways. Oh well, Mother Nature. Blue Moon Beach grill was a great restaurant. House was great. The one knock was that the gas grill was non-functional. No biggie. Resort Realty was a pleasure to deal with.

We loved the house!! We visit the OBX every year around the first week of October and we always stay in Kill Devil Hills. This year we convinced my mother and uncle to come with us. Everyone loved the house, the area, close to beach access, etc. My uncle can't wait to come down again, neither can my mother. The only thing we missed was having a heated pool and the propane was very low for the gas grill. Other than that we had an amazing week and had lots of fun. We celebrated my uncle's 65th birthday while we were there, he loved it. Thanks again.

This house was very comfortable and the location was excellent. Beach access is directly across the street. Since the lot in front of the house is vacant, we had excellent ocean views as well.

Loved the view from the deck. The men spent a lot of time there just watching the ocean. Having the hot tub and the pool were great for the teens.

We loved this house! The pool, although small, was nice to have when tired of the sand. The hot tub was great to relax in at night! Such easy access to the ocean! The house was clean and had a wonderful kitchen to living room open floor plan with a big kitchen! Walking distance to great restaurants. We had a wonderful time and had everything we needed right there. Can't wait to go back!
Everything we wanted
Left on 07/30/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | WVteacher
This house had all that we were looking for - good location, plenty of bedrooms and space, internet, a pool and a hot tub. Though it's not 'ocean front' the vacant lot across the street afforded us a nice ocean view from the decks.

We weren't able to get in the house untl after 5:00 because we were told the house wasn't clean enough and asked the cleaners to come back. What's weird is all week we kept getting covered in little black dog hairs. This was a big problem considering there was a 10 month old and 8 month old crawling around on the floor. Also, after being on the road all day, some people wanted to take a shower but there was no hot water. My husband had to turn on the breaker to the hot water heater and we had to wait until the next morning to take showers. The outside shower never worked. The pool has a leak so we were constantly having to fill it up with the garden hose. Most of the recepticles in the house didn't work. One of the screens for the screened-in area was torn and blowing in the breeze. I have said with Resort Realty properties several times and I've never had as many probelms as I did this time. I'll possibly be looking for a different rental company. Read more

2009 Beach Trip a Blast as Always.

We love Absolut I think mostly because I don't think you could get better Beach Access than this cottage!! The price is good, except for the additional fees, taxes, insurance which increases it several hundred $$. We love the set up, and even with a small pool, it's well worth it to cool off and relax. Two years in a row, we've found nails on the decks due to broken furniture, which this year we called and had taken away!! Always look forward to our trip to the beach.
What else could go wrong
Left on 08/07/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | scottonharris
We arrived on the 4th of July - weather great - fireworkd great.
5th - good weather
- dinning room chairs in bad shape - daughter
went to sit down and chair fell apart - luck
she didn't get hurt.
Called maintenance - Owner to replace
Evening of the 5th Rained - ceiling leaked over bar
Called it in - maintenance came out look at
water mark above bar - said its the AC
AC guy came out went into ceiling said wasn't AC
can see where its leaking around vent.
Roofing guy came out - didn't have right
supplies will be back out - never seen again.
6th Rainy weather
7th - nice beach day
Retured to the cottage - no AC on the 2nd floor
called in - AC guy came out fixed same.
New Dinning room table and chairs came in.
8th - 10th too cool for the Beach.
This is the first time in July that the weather was soooo cold we couldn't stay on the beach. This is the first time in 3 years we have had issues while staying in the cottage.
This is our third year staying in the same cottage - love it - wished the pool was a bit bigger but big enough to cool off in.
Will stay here again - have never received or been offered a discount for using the same cottage.

We were sorely disappointed with this house.
Left on 07/17/2009 for a stay in May 2009 | Dan and Judi
There were many maintenance issues with this house (diswasher flooded the kitchen, light bulbs outside all needed to be replaced, broken deck lounge chairs, shower heads missing parts, etc) and ALL the dishes/pans/silverware had to be washed before using. Food particles were clearly visible on everything, and I even took a casserole dish and baking sheet in to show your housekeeping manager - she was surprised the staff didn't catch the dirty dishes. It was anything but clean.
While you can't control what the owners put in their houses, there was so much clutter we didn't have room in the kitchen or closets for our things. That was a real pain and we had things lined up around the dining room walls with our stuff.
The staff was very friendly (as always), and responded well when I complained. However, I asked for the problems we experienced to be brought to the attention of the manager and perhaps get some type of compensation for the poor conditions, I never heard anything. We've been customers of yours for some time, and look forward to our visits to the OBX.
We have rented from you several times and have never had a problem, but I can't begin to tell you how disappointed we were with this property - it's not of the quality we're used to when we rent from you.
I really looked forward to this vacation as I have been recovering from breast cancer and was not happy to have to clean up in order to stay there. Had it not been a holiday weekend, we would have insisted on being moved to another property. The kitchen and bath floors were filthy. I don't even clean my own house and don't expect to do so on vacation.
I will be much more careful when choosing a rental property in the future. This house should not be one of your rentals!
my ABSOLUT favorite

My family & I used to rent this house EVERY year in Sept, because it has everything we need in a vacation rental. That stopped when the rental rates got raised quite substantially, which we were disappointed to see. Now that the rates are higher, given the economic crisis, it has made it harder for us to do this every year. I have not been back since 2007 to this house.
