This was our first trip to the Outer Banks and we were extremely pleased starting with entering our beach home, Soundwatch, for the week! It had everything possible and the owners really thought of every little detail! We had small children and young teenagers and everything the possibly needed was provided in the home.
"Spiders, ants, and a variety of bugs inside and out!"

The house was furnished/ decorated well. The Monterey Shores community was fabulous. These are the only 2 compliments that I can give. There were spiderwebs all over both inside and out of this house, extremely large webs with extremely large spiders. We could not use any of the outside decks because of them. There were ants in the kitchen and the dishwasher leaked. When we called to notify beach realty not once but twice, they were rude, had attitudes during the entire conversation and the second agent even hung up on us. We have rented many homes before and this was a first for us as we have never encountered a realty company like this. We will never rent from them again. Their lack of customer service and poor management of this property did not ruin our time in Monterey Shores but did leave us disgusted.
"The house has a great location and plenty of room."

While the house has a great location and polenty of room it needs many updates. The appliances all need replaced. The stand alone ice machine does not work at all and when I called about it I was told there was nothing that could be done. All the shelves and drawers in the frig are pretty much broke. We also had a big problem with bugs in the gound floor rooms. A good exterminator needs to be in there and around the house I believe.

Hello! The house was pretty and had a lot of nice decorations, but unfortunately it was not very clean. For example, I pulled out a pitcher to make some lemonade and there was a small amount of brown liquid in it. Also, the gas grill was in extremely bad shape and almost unusable (it did not look like the picture!). We were also a little "skeeved out" with the beds. Everyone felt itchy and felt like something was crawling on them, although we did not actually see any bed bugs. Some of the kids did have bites on them, but this could have been due to mosquitos, etc. The house was nice, but again, not up to our cleanliness standards. And we were also disappointed (and embarassed) with the "free bagels coupon". When we went to redeem it, we were told that the owner did not subscribe to this feature in 2012. However, they took pity on us and did give us the free bagels, but they retained the coupon so no future guests would not have this misunderstanding. Kinda misleading! Read more

"Great house...needs better cleaning"

house was great, well equipped but, the cleaning staff needs to really clean rather than "touch up" cleaning. Found powder on the handles in the master bath, dirt on the kitchen floor, cobwebs hanging from curtains, etc. carpet on stairs is really dirty...

This rental was very nice and acceptable and reasonable for the money.
If the beach chairs, beach canopy/tent toys, boogie boards, etc are meant to be available they might want to list it. We brought our own with us ...they take up most of the space in a car.
People across the street in col de sac were loud partiers...not a family unit ...but a group of young adults that partied into the morning hours two nights in a row preventing us from sleeping. This is not supposed to happen in Monterey Shores/Corolla/Whalehead. The policy is to rent to families only. I believe.
