Our family booked this home through Resort Realty for June 2014. Unfortunately the pictures on the website do not match the home itself. Immediately upon arrival I knew there were problems and promptly went back to Resort Realty. Resort Realty offered a few unacceptable solutions but would not give us a different house. The problems were as follows:
* This was supposed to be a non-smoking home but someone had been smoking in the house. I smelled it as soon as we walked through the door. This one issue should have been enough to warrant a different house but Resort Realty would not do this.
* Carpeting throughout the house was filthy with a portion of carpet in one of the bedrooms doorways ripped out. Apparently a dog the previous week did this. Resort Realty offered to have the carpets cleaned. We were on vacation, the carpet should have been cleaned before we arrived. Why should we have to deal with this and walk on wet carpeting. We declined this offer and wore shoes throughout the week while inside.
* We paid for premier linens, all bedding should have been ready for us upon arrival. My daughters twin bed had dried pretzels on the bedspread and crumbs on the sheets. I called Resort Realty it took them 3 nights to bring a new bedspread and I changed the sheets myself.
* The sofas in the family room were really dirty. Resort Realty offered to have them cleaned. Again we were on vacation and should not have to deal with wet sofas. Where would we sit (we have 4 kids) while waiting for them to dry.
* The ground floor bedroom floor was sand covered. My father had to clean the floors before using that bedroom.
* Overall dirty home, cabinets dirty, walls dirty, bathroom floors very very dirty.
* Pathway to beach overgrown and obstructed. Difficult to get to beach.
* No dish cloths/dish towels in kitchen. It took Resort Realty 3 days to bring 1 dish towel. We had to use paper towels the whole week to wipe down countertops and wash dishes.
All in all we did not get our moneys worth. I have repeated emailed and called Resort Realty, they will not return emails or calls. We certainly did not get what we paid for and was told by Resort Realty the house was "habitable." A low standard they have set. Resort Realty told me the renters the previous week had been really hard on the home. Unfortunately this became our problem and Resort Realty did not seem to care at all.

Our family really enjoyed our stay...This house has everything you could ask for... The ramp really became handy... My wife hurt her knee and steps were really hard for her to go up and down.. The ramp made it easier for her... The house is furnished very nicely... It is such a lovely home... I would rent this house again.. It is in a nice location and is close to everything.. The beach was just a short distance and the walk was nice... Hoping to rent it again next year if we can come down..

Our 2 families loved Cool Breezes! The extensive ramps around the house made moving in & out super easy. The bedroom configuration was perfect - the early risers and late sleepers could be blissfully separated. The non-sand-fans loved the pool & hot tub (and thanks for all the water noodles!!!) and the beach lovers appreciated the short walk to the beach. The open concept living area allowed for lots of fun family time and the well equipped kitchen made dining in a breeze. Really had a perfect beach vacation!!
House was good, but could have been more clean

The house was plenty big for us. We paid for early check in and we had access to the house prior to 1 pm which was great. One of the issues was that a lot of our pillows were stained. My bed was covered in black dog hair along with my pillows. Resort Realty brought new pillows to our house that day but we had to vacuum out our bed to get rid of all of the hair. I ended up sleeping on the couch because I am weird about germs and could not stop thinking about the dog hair. Lack of chairs in the pool area. No table in the pool area to sit down. 3 of the plastic chairs outside were cracked and could not be sat in. The issues above did not keep us from having a good time though. We will probably check reviews on the house next time before we stay though. Read more
Response from Resort Realty Outer Banks - 08/01/2013
It pleases us to know that you and your family did enjoy your stay. However, it is disappointing to learn that you were not satisfied with the level of cleanliness. A copy of your review was sent to our housekeeping department, and they will certainly address this with the housekeepers that clean this home on a weekly basis. Thank you for choosing Resort Realty, and we hope to see you again next year.

Great value for the price

This home overall was in very good condition. The pool and spa area were great. Beach access was very close. There was an issue with the pool and spa when we arrived which is no fault of Resort Realty. The pool pump and filters were clogged and the spa was extremely low on chemicals. Maintenance came right over and fixed the problems. Other than that, the house was great!

This house is all around nice. You are not to far from anything. There were about ten of us and we had plenty of room, never in each others way.
House was OK, nothing noteworthy

Check in was a breeze. Desk person was very friendly and helpful. House was clean and beds made as requested. Beds in bedroom with bunk beds was very uncomfortable. Mattresses appear to be worn out. My 9 and 12 grandchildren refused to sleep on them. 2nd day there tried to wash some towels. Washer would not agitate with more than 2 towels in it. Call the office, sent a tech out 2 days later. Said yep it was broken and left. Told me he would report it to the office. Did not hear anything. Called the office, was told they had contacted the owner and he was contacting a vendor. Vendor came out on 5th day and said "yep its broken". Never heard anything else. No one called me to give me an update even though they had my cell phone number and told me that they would. Disappointed that no one from Resort Realty took the interest or time or give me a status call. Still didn't work when we left on Saturday.
Great house and great value

This house was very well located near stores and walking to the beach. Pictures did not do justice for the rooms in the house. Very spacious, clean and well stocked. Pool & hot tube were huge! Maintenance repaired a broken lock reported by previous renters, and pool maint. checked chemicals on Wed.
Only negative would be no labels on light switches and no "general" directions for things in the house. We had 5 adults and 2 children (5 & 9) and hardly left the house because we were so comfortable. Hope to go back next year!

The house was very nice, well equipped, nice bedrooms and spacious. The problem was with some needed repairs and some needed cleaning.

"A Bit of Heaven" was an awesome beach house. The only thing we didn't like about it was the location. We didn't like being directly on the highway. Walking to the beach was not easy!
A memorable week I'll never forget

We absolutely loved the house. It was beautiful. We loved the decor. All of the rooms were painted a bright color and different colors all throughout. My kids loved having hte play area in the basement and the in-ground pool. The house was provided with everything we needed. It was a close walk to the beach as well. Everyone was very pleased with this home. I'm very glad we close this house as our vacation rental.

My family and I came down for a wedding, and we all had a wonderful time. We loved the location, the house and the state. Our house was just the right size, the pool and hot tub were a added bonus.
One of the air conditioners messed up on Thursday and Resort Reality sent someone to look at it almost immeditely.
Great week all around
