“Fabulous Ocean Front property!”
I have stayed at the Twisted Fish multiple times in the last 5 or so years, with family. I have also stayed in other homes and I have to say, the Twisted Fish is the most well-stocked beach house I have ever stayed in. Plenty of games, movies, books and, most important, the kitchen has every pot/pan/dish you need to cook large family meals. The pool and the hot tubs are awesome and the bedrooms comfortable. This year, our family hosted Beach Olympics with a Twisted Fish trophy made by a 12-year-old family member. It was the most awesome event ever! Love the views from the top floor and love sitting out on the beach reading. This is a relaxing, family friendly vacation spot!!
“.what a wonderful trip!”
We had a wonderful time at the twisted fish. Everything was clean and welcoming. There was plenty of dishes and pots and pans. The home was beautiful and comfortable. It made us feel at home. We loved being close to the beach and the views were breathtaking. We loved being there and hated to leave. We had a hard time finding the broom and the electric canopener. Other than that it was wonderful! The Wilks Family
“An outstanding place for our family reunion.”
The service was excellent and everyone (all 23 of us) liked the house very much. The amenities were quite satisfactory. Best of all it provided quite well for all of my family--10 adults and 13 children. On the "con" side though, it is expensive. Even so, my family would like to stay there again.
“Wonderful place for a big family vacation”
Great property; overall in very good condition. The few problems (one toilet flushing issue) were rapidly addressed with friendly service. The location in the OBX is very convenient; fun things to do in many directions. The house itself was perfect for a big group that likes to eat and play games together - the two large dining area tables allowed for all 19 of us to hang out. Great pool and lovely beach area. We even had a sea turtle lay eggs on our area of beach and got to see the rescue group at work. Dolphins swimming by every morning was also a special treat.
“Great property - poor maintenance - poor service”
Great property but has some problems that are being neglected. An older review mentioned torn screens (which are still torn) and leaks in the 2nd floor bedroom and the rec room when it rains.(also still not repaired). One of the torn screens is in the door on the main living area which is used to go out on the third floor deck. This means you can not leave that door open because of the flies. So you have an ocean breeze that you cannot enjoy. The whole screen is missing from the door in the 2nd floor bedroom, but the frame is still in place. One of my guests scraped her arm on this frame not realizing it was there. This is also one of the rooms that had a leak during the rainstorm. We had trash cans catching the water and towels soaking it off the floor. Part of the rug was soaked. Evidently from past reviews, these problems were known to the realtor and I assume the owner, but nothing was done. Within 10 minutes of arriving, I was on the phone with the realtor. We were to have use of the heated pool but it had been closed for the season that morning. The realtor apologized and contacted the pool company. They were not able to come till the next afternoon,but asked us to put 2 hoses in the pool to start adding water. We checked in on Saturday (80 degree weather) and could not use the pool until Monday afternoon. It rained Wednesday and temps dropped to the 60's the rest of the week. I called the realtor about the screen (told owner would be contacted - got no call back) and about the leak (told maintenance would be told - no call back). Realtor never stopped by or called back. Having a two year old grandaughter who loves to swim, not having the pool available only a couple of days was very frustrating. Having owned a beach rental property, we know the wear and tear that takes place, but we never allowed it to affect our guests. Their concerns should be acknowledged and not ignored.
Response from the manager Dear ikmvld, Thanks for taking the time to post this review. We apologize again for your discontent with Twisted Fish. As an owner of a rental property you know that some repairs are simple and others take time. The roof is being addressed by the homeowner and it is not an easily solved situation. The leaks that you experienced were not known previously, and caused by the recent hurricane. They are being taken care of. As for the pool frankly the pool situaton should have never happened, and we again apologize. We also were unaware that you were looking for someone to personally come by the property to apologize to you regarding this situation. The pool vendor tried to rectify the issue as soon as possible. We are glad that you had a great week of weather to enjoy this beautiful property and hope that you will experience a trouble free stay next time! All the best from the beach!
“Impacted by Irene - Still had fun...”
Fourth consecutive year we renter Twisted Fish, unfortunately it backed up t oHurricane Irene an her visit to the Outer Banks. our trip was delayed two days due to the post hurricane cleanup. The house did nott incur any real damage, just sand and wind damage. pool was sand filled and one of the hot tubs was unuasable for the same period. We spent some time hosing the rear of the house down and clearing the sand from the deck and walk to the beach. overall not a bad week, booked again for next year.
“In Love with the Outer Banks”
I am always impressed with the Outer Banks. Our family enjoys being by the ocean. Every year we come there is something different about the beach. We get a house with a pool so if the ocean is too rough we can still swim.
“House had great location but still had issues from Hurricane”
The house could have been cleaner. There were a number screens that were ripped out and needed replacing. Water was coming in the through the frame around the sliding Glass doors on the second floor bedroom and the ramps going out to the beach area were covered with over 2 feet of sand. this would not have been a problem, except we had one person in our party in a wheel chair. Unfortunately the bedroom that was leaking water was also the handicap bedroom, so we needed the bathroom for that room. Needless to say it was very disappointing to arrive to find water coming in one of the bedrooms and have to put towels down on the floor. Rental facility was aware of the leak. We dealt with it and did enjoy our week there, but that was very irritating. Outer banks blue was the rental facility, they sent someone out to look at it but did nothing to correct the situation.
“Beautiful week and oceanfront was wonderful!”
The location and oceanfront view was wonderful. The keyless entry was great with not having to stop and check in. A lot of problems with 2nd floor toilet (the one shared by 3 rooms) kept stopping up. We called several times and plumber came once (snake not long enough) and never came back. The all TV reception was very bad, called twiced in which workorder had been turned in from previous week rentors and never fixed. All Tv's in entire house out, which after a good day at the beach, sometimes it is nice to unwide with kids for TV.
This is the second time that my extended family has stayed at The Twisted Fish - once in 2007 and again in 2011. The home is decorated beautifully and offers many rainy day activities (tvs, games for kids and adults, a pool table). Our little ones really enjoyed the private pool! The kitchen easily accommodates family meals so that everyone can be together at those family reunions. We really appreciate the elevator and handicap facility as one of my brothers has has several strokes and is limited in movement. He was there both times and found the home to be perfect for the physically handicapped. It was great to see him getting around with his walker on his own. We did buy him a non-slip shower mat for his safety. We have already requested to be placed on a 2013 wait list. A fun time was had by all and everyone is looking forward to our return to the Twisted Fish.
