“A perfect end to a successful college year (4 students/4 parents”
We are New Englanders who had never visited the Outer Banks but had heard some great things so we thought we would venture down in late May to celebrate the end of our kids' college year. The Sunday we drove in was windy and raining and we truly believed our beach vacation might be a total washout with threats of Tropical Storm albert. Fortunately when we got to avalon, we were so excited about the house that we forgot to be upset about the weather! The pictures do not do it justice!!! It is gorgeous, spacious, well equiped and we would all be able to find our own "space" if we were stuck inside. The views are breathtaking, even in the rain. When we woke up Monday morning to sunshine, we woke up everyone thinking it was a fluke and we needed to take advantage of the good weather. Well, it turned out we didn't need to hurry, because the rest of the week was spectacular as well. I guess you can't trust the forecast in the Outer Banks!!! We loved the pool and the access to the beach. We ate our breakfast, lunch and some dinners on the deck without any bugs bothering us. We enjoyed the proximity to Duck Center and made Duck Donuts a stop three of the mornings!!! We found Duck to be a great destination with some shops and restaurants but not too crowded, especially in late May. We visited Kitty Hawk and loved that tour. We didn't want to leave avalon for any long periods since nothing beat that view, but we did spend our last night at the Sunset Grille and got some amazing photos of a perfect sunset. The only negative of the house involved the gas grill, but Outer Banks blue was quick to respond and get us a rental grill for the week. Also, internet coverage could be shaky at times, so if you needed to work from the house, you may need to investigate the reasons for the inconsistency. Overall, we all had an absolute blast in OBX!!!
“Relaxing, Great Location and Beautiful views!”
The customer service we received with Outer Banks Blue was great! They answered any questions that we had, along with the owner of avalon and accommodated us with any of our requests/needs. Great to work with! The home we rented was at a great location, direct Ocean Front with wonderful views of the sunrise and sunsets. The home was stocked with all of the amenities you need for a week long get-a-way. We will use Outer Banks Blue service again should be visit the Outer Banks area in the near future. Thank you to Outer Banks Blue and the owners of "Avalon" for a great get-a-way with our family! The "Brown" Family York, pa (stayed week of October 9th, 2011)
“First Time To Vacation in OBX”
Hurricane Irene threw off our vacation days but after we did get to the house everything was good. We didn't get to use the pool due to the hurricane damage but we occupied ourselves with the many other things to do in OBX.
“A little disappointed in the condition of the property”
The house is in a great location and plenty of bedrooms - only thing that saved the day. One problem with the location though the house is adjacent to a public walkway with an entrance to the beach, this is right next to the property. House had many condition issues - exposed nails, sliders did not work properly - had wood boards to secure the slider for locking it, gates did not close, bottom bedroom smelled musty. This was definitely a downer considering what we paid to rent the house for a week.
The service for "Avalon" was outstanding. We enjoyed the house very much. The location was perfect! My favorite was "Everything". My least favorite was that Hurricane Irene shortened our stay and we were evacuated. As a side note, as of 9/28/11, we have not received our refund. We definately want to return, but I think maybe late May or early June.
“Disappointed in some things...”
Loved OBB concept of early entry - Blue-Ribbon property and code entry, but we were very disappointed to find only 1 refrigerator and an icemaker that had been reported as not working 2 weeks prior to our arrival. Further, OBB offered reimbursement for our ice expense but just didn't seem to care that we would have to go out every day because there was no place to store it. We gave them several suggestions to help us but they only wanted to explain that it was the owner's decision to take action. What a shame. Lastly, one of the rooms only have a double bed.. very small. It seems a strange layout of rooms that does not easily accomadate our group. Obb could still make this experience better for us, (hint!) but with their lack of consideration to help, i doubt we will hear from them. Under those circumstances and without intervention by them, we will not use OBB in the future. (It could have gone a much different way, so currently we are very dissatisfied.)
“Panoramic ocean views”
We have stayed at avalon for several years and noticed the last 2 years exterior maintenance has gone down hill...carport,drive and pool area very unkept...nails and cigarette butts everywhere..Interior ok but could use some new sliding doors..
“Wonderful Home and Wonderful Rental agency”
We had a great time and the process was painless with OBX Blue.
The location of this house is perfect, an easy bike ride into Duck. One night we enjoyed whales and dolphins swimming by. House is clean and nicely furnished. Service from realtor was excellent. Only problem was the hot tub didn't work and we were compensated for that. Be aware there are a lot of stairs.
“We would rent it again.”
Value wise, This was a great place, so says my wife and my two grown sons and there families.
