Guest Reviews: "Truly a calm vacation home" "We were tired of renting homes that had party people in neighboring homes and thought we would try the sound side. So happy we home is in a very quite area with great walking or biking access to the beach and pool. Loved the dock off the back of the home and the supplied crab pots."
"Our family and friends had a wonderful time at your home. It is beautifully built and well maintained. We enjoyed the quiet community so close to the water. We went kayaking and went crabbing off the back deck and ate delicious crabs at the end of the week for dinner. The views are beautiful."
"We have enjoyed your lovely home. Love the open floor plan. It was so pleasant to sit out on the different decks to watch the water and sunset. The dock to sit and relax on to catch crabs was great. The reading loft was used every day. We enjoyed our vacation on the sound side. p.s. Thank you for the crab pots."
"Over the years our family has stayed back here in Colington at various homes. We were fortunate to have stayed in your lovely home back in 2004. It was a pleasure then as it was this week. The home is gorgeous and the name says it all "Calm Reflections". A perfect place to enjoy a vacation at the beach. The views are wonderful and very relaxing. The addition of the crab pots was a plus. We had a bounty of crabs all week!"

Calm Reflections was the best beach rental that we have ever experienced.
I have been traveling to the Outer Banks area since I was a child,
& this property takes the cake. This home offered every amenity we
Needed & then some. We have always stayed on the beach, beach
Road, or between the highways-but after experiencing the calm, quiet,
Relaxed atmosphere in Colington, this will be our choice from now on.
The home was beautiful, spacious, clean, & offered plenty of room
For everyone. We would definitely choose this property again.

The realty company provides friendly, helpful service. The house is absolutely beautiful...even nicer than the photos online! (Be aware that there are lots of steps...no problem for an active family, but probably not the best choice for older folks or those with mobility issues.) The deck out back looks as if it has been improved, with an added bench, cute adirondack chairs, even a couple of crab pots to try your luck catching some crabs. The rooms are large, nicely decorated, and very clean. Having the linens/towels included is a nice bonus...just make sure that you bring toilet tissue with you. (Not even one starter roll was an unpleasant surprise after a six-hour drive.) Overall, though, we had nothing to complain about. The air conditioner, ceiling fans, and all appliances worked great; there was an extra ice maker in the den, which came in handy everyday when packing the cooler for the beach. Another nice discovery was how close this house is to the pool and soundfront beach/playground/marina. Literally, just around the corner! We all (including children) walked there several times. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, with the sound in the back yard, this house has everything you need for a terrific vacation. We definitely recommend this house to our friends!

This was by far the best place I've ever stayed in. I didn't want to come home! It's so spacious and comfortable. It felt like it was our own home the moment we walked through the door. We always bring cleaning supplies to clean our vacation rentals before unpacking, but we didn't have to do it with this one!! It was great! We loved how everything was sanitized! Loved the dock and all of the sliding doors! Such a great location! It was around 10pm when we were locking up that we noticed the bottom sliding door would not stay locked. We called the emergency maintenance number, he came right away to fix the lock! Such a great service!

The house was very cleaned, very well stocked with equipment (pots, pans, dishes, etc) and the dock at the back of the house was a great place to relax. Peaceful and quit cul-de-sac. Only disappoitment was that the community pool (which was cool to have) opened late (11am) and closed early (7pm). Otherwise a perfect location and place to stay. Lots of room for kids to have their own space and plenty of bathroom and bedrooms to be completely comfortable. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Calm Reflections. The house was beautiful, clean, and had everything we could possibly need. My children and grandchildren stayed with me and everyone had a fabulous time.

We loved the house and the area! Great house for our 3 families! Unfortunatly we were very disapointed with the hundreds of ants we had to kill a hour! We even spent our own $ to spray killer daily to keep them out of the kitchen!!! Loved everything about the house except the ants:-(

We have stayed in this cottage for many years. It is a great location and overall a nice cottage. I don't know what happened since last year, but the cleanliness of the cottage this year was terrible. The carpets on the second floor had large stains and it didn't seem that the Beach Realty cleaning crew did any cleaning. There was dried toothpaste in the sinks and hairs everywhere from the previous renters. It did not look like any vacuuming had been done all summer. In fact, my husband and I cleaned until 3:00 a.m. on our first night. He had to dump the vacuum dirt container 3 times and we had to scrub all the bathrooms. There is also a major ant problem. The table on the top floor where you eat was covered. We had to go out and buy ant killer. We recommend that a thorough cleaning be done at the end of the busy season to keep the cottage up. When we paid to rent this cottage, it was Beach Realty's responsibility to come in and clean before we arrived. We kept our end of the rental agreement, but did not feel that Beach Realty kept theirs. We did not complain while we were there because we were very frustrated and just wanted to make the most of our vacation. If I owned this cottage, I would not be pleased with the services that Beach Realty provided.
Greetings and thank you for your review. Beach Realty and Kitty Hawk Rentals takes cleaning complaints very seriously and we intend to confront the cleaning crew of this home and address the items you mentioned. If the cleaning crew is not performing to meet Kitty Hawk Rentals housekeeping standards we will take the necessary actions to ensure that this is corrected. We do always ask that our guests notify us of any cleaning issues within 24 hours of arrival so that we can resolve them promptly. Thank you for renting with Kitty Hawk Rentals.
