We rented Jockey Ridge (141) to house our wedding party before our September 14th wedding. We had the house from the 8th to the 15th of September and had to check out at 10 am on the morning after the wedding (read negatives) We loved the house and the pool. The mega touch was an added bonus. We had enough room for everyone in our wedding party and had enough space to have friends and family over throughout the week. We used the pool and grill a lot! It was great to have a refrigerator in the basement to keep food and drinks to enjoy by the pool.
A few negatives:
The beds were very uncomfortable.
Towels, paper goods and general cleaning supplies are not provided.
The house is "500 feet from the beach" however you have to go about a half mile to actually get to the closest beach access. There is no beach access across from the house. This should have been more clear in the ad for the house.
Check out time is way too early (Sunday at 10am). We asked Beach Reality to check out monday instead of Sunday. Beach reality told us that wasn't an option because the house was rented for the next week. We then asked for a few hours extra to get packed up. We were checking out the morning after our wedding we really needed time to get our stuff together. We were very disappointed that the reality company was so inflexible.

Our family rented this house the week of 7/30/13. This is a beautiful house. It is well-decorated and extremely well laid out. There are decks/balconies on every level and a very nice pool with a hot tub. Having a washer and dryer on 2 of the levels was a tremendous asset. The check-in was quite easy, and we were even able to get in the house early.
Although this house had many advantages, it also had its share of draw-backs. The temperature on the second and third levels was adequate, but the first level of the house was always hot. When I called the rental agency, they said there was nothing they could do about it. One of the bedrooms' bathrooms had black sludge and body hair coming out of the drain in the bathtub. I called every day for 3 days asking for someone to come fix it because the mother and baby in that room were having to share a tub with other people in another room. They didn't come. Finally we went to the hardware store, bought the materials, and fixed it ourselves. The same afternoon a plumber came, looked at it, and said, "Yea, it's fixed. Now I can get paid." We also complained about 2 of the jets in the hot tub not working. They weren't able to fix that either. At arrival and first glance, the house looked very clean, but there was dirt, sand, and grit under furniture, on shelves, etc. We probably could have overlooked all these problems, but the real disadvantage was the difficulty accessing the beach. The properties across the road are privately owned and they "will not" allow anyone to walk on their property. We asked because we had several very small children. They will call the police if you try. The closest public access with parking (very limited) is 3/4 mile away. This was a major inconvenience and we would not have rented this house if we'd realized this. The ad for this property isn't clear enough about this.
Although this rental had some good points, we would not rent this house again.

misconception about beach access, ice maker did not work,playstation had no working controlers,hot tub had two working jets,grass was over a foot high out front and out back. Yet the beds were very comfortable,plkenty of pans and dishes. The house was decorated nicely.Priced high for not having beach access.

Great house for the size. Liked the layout and the design elements... but.
The walk to the beach is very long, even though you are right across the street from the beach. No direct access. You must drive for the most part to a public parking and public access to the beach. Very disappointing. Next time I would stay farther off the beach for less money and be closer to the beach. Would only be sacrificing a little bit of the view of the beach.

All and all it was a great house that met our needs. Our only complaint was that the bathroom outside for the pool was locked and not in use and the volley ball court was overgrown with weeds. We enjoyed the balconies and the outdoor furniture was very nice. We would stay there again but a crazy, local women harassed us and actually called the police on us and the other house next door. She was accusing us of stealing things off her porch.

This house is just beautiful, the kitchen is stocked really well for preparing meals,the pool is not heated and(this needs to be stated in the description), also there were only 2 keys which is not enough for a big group otherwise it was just great!

Carpet was worn in 2 bedrooms with tack coming through, which 2 children stepped on. Hot Tub only half the jets operated, Dining room chairs were unstable, had someone collapse to the floor when they broke a few hours after arriving. Fan broken in a bedroom, Ice Maker didnt work, 2nd fridge advertised as full size in reality it is a 3/4 fridge.
House is what you make of it, but we have rented for the past 5 years, and would not rent this home, and based on the response from company are hesistant to rent from them again.
The Kitty Hawk Rentals service department responded immediately to the guests concerns about the carpet tacking strips being exposed. The service department tech placed wooden threshhols over the tacking strips. It appeared that a pet that had been in the house had caused damage to the carpet.
Dining room chair issue was also addressed and all have been made sturdy if there were problems.
The broken fan was a missing chain that someone had probably pulled on too hard. This was quickly addressed.
Hot tub jets have also been addressed.
This is a vacation home that the new owners have taken great pride and care in and continue to make improvements during the season and off seasons each year. They are "hands on" owners who want to meet their guests "every need" in terms of amenities.
The home is named after Jockey's Ridge State Park - a hang gliding mecca - located close by. Great ocean views!

Jockey's Ridge Haven was close to shopping and things to do. The cleanliness was just average. It needed ceiling fans dusted, cupboards cleaned, windows washed, floors swept underneath beds and furniture. Throw rug in living room needs washed. But despite some set backs it was comfortable for 19 people and easily accessible. For the price it was right.
Our cleaners address a "major concern" each week. One week ceiling fans are addressed, another week baseboards are done. These items are the "deep cleaning" type of items and are not done every week as time does not often permit in the window of 6 hours between the 10 AM check out and the 4 PM check in.
Kitty Hawk Rentals takes cleaning issues seriously. Any guest who calls in a cleaning concern will have a cleaning crew sent "back" to the home to correct the situation.
We wish this guest had let us make it "right" for her.

Everything was very easy - starting from the reservation process online, to check-in and the house was great! Look forward to coming back next year!

Part of my family stayed at Jockey's Ridge. It's a very nice house, convenient to the beach. I only had 2 problems with the residence. They left us sheets that didn't fit the beds and seeing that it was a holiday weekend we were pretty much "shortsheeted" for a few days. The second was more important. I specifically chose this residence because it advertised wifi as my children work from home and had to be online each day. It did not work and the rental agency did not fix it. My son knows the internet as that is his job and he could not fix it due to the equipment. Nice home, but not if you need the internet.
"We had an outstanding vacation, even with Earl out there."

my title says it all...although the house was impeccable, i don't think we would have rented it had we known that the beach access was as much of a walk as it was. We felt that the advertising we read was deceiving
