The house is nicely furnished, comfortable and clean. The rooms are large and airy. The pool was nice but the lounge area is a little drab and colorless. We loved the hot tub and golf cart. The cart made access to the beach easy and convenient. The stove and dishwasher did not work well. However,the washer and dryer were large capacity and worked well. The Resort Realty staff were friendly, accomodating and handled any complaint easily.

The set up of the home is just perfect! We loved the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. We loved the location. The house was not clean at all. The pots and pans were gross. I hesitated using anything in the cabinets. If the owners update a few things, the house would be perfect!
Thank you for taking the time to respond to our survey. I agree, this home does have a great set up and a great location. Your comments regarding the pots and pans and improvements will be passed along to the new owners of this rental home.
Again, thanks for your response and we hope you will vacation with us again in the near future.

The unit was OK but the ants were over the top! The cart broke and it took 2 days to get a replacement. For someone that has never been there before, very misleading about the distance to the water!
We loved the outer banks and will return but will not rent from you again. Sorry.
“great pool, golf cart was convenient, home was adequate.”

The home worked out well for our needs, since we are a family of five, and
each of my three daughters had their own bedroom and bathroom. The pool
was very private, and the golf cart came in very handy, as the house is a fair
distance from the beach.
On the down side, there was a broken lamp, a slat from the sliding door
blinds was broken, and the furniture was only in fair condition.
In regards to the service from Resort Realty, my wife was very upset when
she received a phone call from your office on our second day, waking her at
9am,and accusing us of turning on the heater in the pool. She was rudely
told that there would be a $300 charge added for the use of the heater. We
knew nothing about the pool heater, and as it turned out, the previous
tenants from the prior week had apparently turned on the heater! I feel it is
important for your personnel to get the facts before making accusations,
especially to loyal renters who have been using your services for a number
of years. Nevertheless, we didn't let that interfere with our vacation, and
enjoyed ourselves during our two week stay. My only other complaint is
that there were numerous cigar butts, empty beer cans, and soda cans left
on the deck, driveway and grounds, which should have been cleared before
we got there. I hate to complain, but feel it is in your best interest to be
informed, to help improve the experience for future renters.

We had very high hopes when we came to OBX for the first time. The house itself wass nice with a good layout for a large family or multiple families. The pool appeared to be new and well-maintained. We liked the fact that we could walk to teh beach or use the convenience of the golf cart. There were, however, several disppointing features in the house. The dishes and such were perfectly fine but the cooking untensils were absolutely horrid. There seemed to be some type of ant infestation in and around the diswasher which got to be a bit annoying after a while. The washer-dryer situation was the most frustrating of all. It literally took 1 1/2 hours to try 2 regular-sized beach towels. In a house with 8 people that was abaolutely unacceptable. As much as we enjoyed out time in OBX we will probably try to find another house in the future. It was a very long drive for something that was just OK.
