We stay in the OBX every year. And we love it. This house was very nice. It had a good location with regards to the beach. the living room couch was so comfy, it beckoned you to nap often. However, it need some updating. The stove was unreliable, not acceptable when cooking for ten people. And the pots and pans need to be checked over by the owner as there are some ruined, unusable pots and their is a lack of some very basic things one needs to prepare meals. Also the bedspreads seem overused. There needs to be a bit more furniture options on the decks. All in all we enjoyed our stay, as usual.

House is dated & poorly maintained--also overpriced.

So. Shores Realty did everything well--from Reservation to responding rapidly to faulty aC unit. The house itself was a disappointment. Needs maintenance--peeling paint etc., essentially no deck furniture, & poor layout--eg access to pool.
A house that needs a bit of rejuvenation.

The house rental started off well as the staff was helpful in letting us in. However, the house is worn out. Everything from missing blinds in the great room and kitchen, a beat up lower shelf in teh dishwasher, a hose 10 yrs old, the house looks and feels down on its luck and the owner is milking it for all the $$$. The bed was shorted when we got there so the staff that put the sheets on was obviously cutting corners and the bed linens smelled old and stinky inspite us hanging them out. We had a great experience with a house from you on Hickory st 2 years ago so we had high expectations for this one but were seriously disappointed. The pool was nice and clean is the one good thing.

Great location, so close to the beach.
Each member of the family had their own bathroom, that was a highlight.
The pool was great fun.
We love this location, near everything but away from the traffic.

We loved the home and the Christmas card offering a discount. My mother at 90 is handicapped but we hauled her to the premium sweet as we always do irrespective as to where we stay.
The only 2 issues:
1. Web connect was not working. Had to use someone else's in my family that was just a few blocks away. Thanks goodness.
2. We left a rod to a handicap chair on the upper level. I have called house keeping 3 times regarding this with now return calls. It is unlikely that we will go thru Southern Shores again. There are many others that will rent to us as we are down 1-3 times per year.

The house was beautiful, well lit, spacious and had very nice views for being across the street from the beach. The views of the sunsets were pretty as well. We enjoyed our stay there and would happily return. The house is well furnished although chairs in the bedrooms would be a welcome addition.

We've stayed in the OBX about 13 times in the last 16 years and this is definitely our favorite house. 2009 will be our fourth stay at the "Castle." It has it all: pool, hot tub, great floor plan, and is a short walk to the beach! It is well-equiped, roomy, and nicely decorated. Also, they allow dogs! I highly recommend Castle on a Cloud.

Did have 2 or 3 nights where dozens of flying gnats somehow got into the entry foyer. It didn't come from us leaving the door open.
You should review the soiled carpet in one of the downstairs bedrooms. It maybe time to replace...not sure you can clean it.
We've stayed in Southern Shores area for 20 years and will return to this unit in 2009.
