You can't beat the location of this house. The walk to the uncrowded beach is super easy. The pool area was very dirty due to overhanging pines. The kitchen is poorly stocked, we scrambled every night to find the items we needed. Bugs are abundant in both lower levels..especially in the bathrooms. Will not stay here again.

This is a lovely home, but it is in need of a little special care. The pool area was in need of sweeping (which I did) and clean up. The gas grill was so rusted we were unable to use it. One living room swivel chair was broken. It needed needed new screws. We called OBB and a man came and looked at it. He said he would return to fix it that afternoon and we never saw him again. Otherwise the home was in good condition. By the way I filled one of these out already. You must have lost it.

I called the morning after our arrival to report several problems in our rental house. There were 2 bathroom tub drains that were backed up and would fill the tub up with water. There was a broken light by the swimming pool. There were over a dozen burned out light bulbs throughout the house - some in the kids rooms. There was a dresser that was literally falling apart and dangerous to the kids. The windows were extremely dirty and difficult to see outside. Finally, there were spider webs inside of many of the lighting fixtures. Even though I was assured that someone would be out - no one came. My wife then called into Outer Banks Blue's office a couple days later (I think it was Wed. or Thurs.) and they again assured her that we were on the list of someone to come out - but no one came...Again. The house overall was fairly clean and we liked how close it was to the beach access.
We are sorry you took this forum as an opportunity to complain about maintenance issues during your stay. As future potential guests read this review they actually do not get a feel for the property by reading your review, and we feel your commentary is unfair.
We did respond and resolve each of the issues that you brought to our attention with the exception of cleaning the windows at the property. We do not typically clean the exterior windows because as you know the harsh coastal environment does coat oceanfront windows quickly. Our houses do have hoses on the decks so guests can rinse windows often and this summer has been one of the raniest on record and so the windows have been kept very clean.
The good news is that your stay was in early June of this year, and virtually all of the issues you presented in today's review were resolved before you submitted the review.
We are glad that you found the house clean, and that it was easily accessible to the beach. We were hopeful that you would pass along more information like that to future guests who may profit from your visit.
