the beds were awful. the pull out bed could not be used and we had to buy an air mattress. The septic backed up and I felt we had a wasted day and should have been reimbursed for that day. This was a very expensive rental, there shouldn't have been mold in the bathrooms. Read more

Okay but not what is shown online
Left on 07/18/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Cleveland Pete
This was our fourth trip to the OBX and the first one where the house was disappointing. The location was great, on the beach, with a pool. The descriptions and photos online were way off though. A very nice, clean, updated house is what was shown and unless something changes, this house, and it ammenities, are run down.
Our stay at Casa de Romance was filled with plenty of family tim

I have used Beach Realty for many years; their service facilitates ease in finding, arriving, and leaving. Casa de Romance was a another winner for the extended family. Having the in-law apartment afforded my son, wife and 2-month old daughter to vacation with us without losing the privacy the needed. We loved the open design, pool table competitions, easy access to the beach, the pool size, and the hot tub location (great view of the ocean). The home was very clean. I suggest stocking the kitchen with more glasses and coffee cups. Great place!
Love the view and location

Great house, but needs better mattresses (too hard!!!) and better seating in the community areas. Kitchen looks nicer than it is - knives were terrible. Also, the trash can in the kitchen needs a lid - terrible issue with flies all week.
Loved the pool and the dune deck.
Cable only worked in the living room.
Beach Front but lacking
Left on 07/14/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | WVV
The location of the house was excellent--beach front, close to many different shopping areas and activities. We enjoyed the hot tub on the upper deck as well as the pool table, foosball table and swimming pool. We also spent a lot of time sitting on the dune-top deck.
The house did lack some amenities that we have enjoyed in other houses that cost less per week--no beach chairs or umbrellas, no games, no Dvds, inadequate and uncomfortable seating in main living room and game room, no closets to hang clothing, and extremely hard mattresses on the beds. We had to wash all of the dishes in the cabinets when we arrived because many of them had been put away dirty.
Could have been better

Beautiful location; layout of the house was exceptional; covered pool was perfect for this hot time of the year; more furniture (seating) in the rec room and sitting room is needed; mold a d musty smell remediation needed in first bedroom to the left (has washer & dryer). Maintenance man, Joe, was outstanding.
Unbelievably great house! Fantastic vacation!

We were looking for something a little more upscale than we usually rent but still within a budget. We found that and more at Casa de Romance! The house is in a great location. Love the walkway to the beach and the deck right at the end of the walkway. Having a pool to swim in at night was a hit with our adult children as well. There are so many nooks and crannies in this house that everyone could find a space to have a private moment. Highly recommend this rental to others!
Great week and a very nice place to stay.

Enjoyed a nice week with family. The cottage was well equipped with everything needed for a stay away from home. Would definitely return!
It was a peaceful, relaxing beach trip.
Left on 05/06/2011 for a stay in April 2011 | MK
The house was spacious with a well-equipped kitchen. It could use a much larger tv in the main room, more places to sit there, and better lighting. It also needs seating of some sort in the loft room which is the only one with beach views. The bedroom arrangement was very good for several couples because of the separation into individual suites. The pool table in a bright, sunny room was a nice plus for rainy days. The location was only a few miles from a very good grocery store and a Walmart so shopping was simple. We liked this house.
Always a Good time at the Beach
Left on 07/23/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | Big Kahuna
We had an oceanfront home with alot of amenities included such as a pool and hot tub. The property was fairly expensive to rent for the week but our family sucks it up and usually goes a little extra as we are all together for the week. The property was in good shape for the most part and closely matched the on-line tour, which I have found is not always the case. It is an old style design in that evereything with the exception of the hot tub is on the main floor. It is not a high rise like most of the homes in the OBX with multiple floors, so it was convenient for all to enjoy. The place has an attached "mother in law suite" which my wife and I used, only a couple concerns with this was you had to enter from the outside as there is no entry thru the main house and the a/C system which I think was an individual central unit was very ineffecient and could not adequately cool this suite. Other concern we had was the pool was not cleaned or treated to our satisfaction eventhough we repeatedly called the real estate company to have it addressed. It seems the company used by the real estate or owner is lacking considerably. All in all we had a good time with the beach and the rest of the amenities in the house. Hopoefully some of the concerns I addressed will be resolved as the properrty has alot of potential.
