The house is old and you should think twice before booking it. The master bathroom window leaked when it rained, and we had to duct tape a plastic bag over the window so you could go to the bathroom without getting rained on. The living room window you can actually see through the frame to the outside it is so rotted. All of which probably led to assortment of ants and spiders.
The pool service was very helpful but because of the evergreens planted next to the pool it was always dirty and forget about the hot tub.
The Kitty Hawk Rentals offered to fix everything, but is that really what you want when you are on vacation is to have maintenance workers roaming around the house, I don't think so.
After 10 years of renting homes in OBX this was by far the worst house we have ever rented.

The rental home was as described. However a lack of basic maintenance and care made it disappointing...

Everyone that I came in contact with was extremely nice. We had to get service on the hot tub and the gentleman that came out was great to talk to. He told us alot about the local eateries and fishing. Very informative.
The house was very nice. The pool table kept the kids entertained all week. We had everything that we needed. The downstairs bathroom was great because of it's size. I really enjoyed this house.
"Fabulous location close to beach and stores; excellent beach!"

The beach was fantastic! Water was warm, great shells, not too crowded. The house was ok. The hot tub had to be serviced so we never got to use it. The pool table was a bit worn. The pool liner is starting to pull away from the coping, but the size was very good, and it was nice and warm. The house was great for our needs, however. There was definitely enough room for the ten of us, with room to spare. The kids had a fantastic time! The especially enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and shops. The rental agency was extremely nice, and promptly took care of our needs as best they could. Nice folks.

Above all is a good home and a very good value compared to others in the Corolla area. The community is now on public water so there are no issues with smelly water. The house furnishings are tired and need updating, but for the price it is comfortable. It appeared as we were the first renters for the 2012 season and the owners have not been at the house this season. We needed to fix some very minor items like replacing the outside shower head as it was completely clogged, replaced the lower level toilet handle and took care of a ant problem in the kitchen. The entire outside deck and pool area including all outside furniture needed to be hosed off and washed before we could use it. The microwave handle is broken and the master bedroom TV Hdmi cord was broken so the TV did not work, but I did not need it so we did not have it replaced but did alert the rental company. There was a strong wireless Internet signal but no password was available. When we called the rental company they told us the house did not have wireless?? Once we did these minor repairs we had a wonderful time. I am surprised that Kitty Hawk Beach Realty allowed a property to be rented in this condition. I would of expected if the owners were not present to open the house for the season that the rental company would have take the intuitive of doing a walk-through.
We will be back next year but will choose to spend a few more dollars and upgrade our house. If the owners do a re-fresh we would rent again and gladly pay more. The location cant be beat.

This house was Property #7003 "above all" The home was designed nicedly and adequatelty equipped, however the water had an extremely high sulfur content that we were told by management was "OK to use." The sufur smell was overwhelming when anyone took a shower and could even be detected when flushing the toilet, or using the sink. We had to buy bottled water to cook with so as not to have a sulfur taste in or food. This made the stay quite unpleasnt at times and gave my son several headaches. I would not recommend this rental to anyone else unless the sulfur problem was fixed.

We had never visited the Outer Banks, but had heard wonderful things about it. It well exceeded our expectations. Originally I thought what kind of vacation will it be where we need to cook and clean someone else's house, but honestly it was the most relaxing vacation I ever had. Lounging by the pool, going to the beach, not having to leave to go to fancy dinners. The weather was beautiful except for the hurricane evacuation, which actually made our trip exciting. We loved the house. We definitely came back and recommended it to all our friends. Not only was it enjoyable it was affordable.
Left on 09/05/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | Smelly eggs.Reviewed Sep 5, 2010Stayed Jul 2010
The house was nice, and livable. There was a pool and a pool table which the kids enjoyed. There was a wet bar down stairs and a refrigerator that was nice.
The issue is there was a problem with the aC keeping consistently cool on all levels. The water treatment system was not operating properly, when we reported it to kitty hawk they said it was normal for the water to smell like rotten eggs. It could not be drunk or used for showering, unless you enjoyed smelling like a rotten egg.
When we finally got some one out to the house after multple calls, the water treatment system was dry and not fuctioning and had not be serviced at the begining of the season.
If the problems are corrected I would recommend the house to others. Although with young children or elderly parents, it is a pretty good walk to the beach for them, manageable but long.
