Very dirty, bugs in one bathroom, standing water in another. Carpet was dirty and reeked of dog. The house is directly on the highway. It was very noisy.

Response from the manager Dear Margaret, We are disappointed to read your review of Rum Runner and apologize for your disappointment. Your review is especially disappointing given the fact your group drove to the Outer Banks to view this property and took an extended tour of the property with our rental manager before making a reservation and ultimately making payment. There should have been no confusion regarding this property's location or amenities as a result. Mrs. Beverly Black who was the leaseholder on this reservation indicated she was satisfied with the rental of this property and the home was as expected. We wish you would have contacted us durign your visit with Mrs. Black so we could have corrected any deficiencies you found. As you can see by the other reviews of this property your experience is not the common takeaway from this home. All the best from the beach!

Response from the manager Dear Ms. Moyer, Thanks for posting your review of "Rum Runner." We are glad that you have had good experiences with Outer Banks Blue in the past, and we are sorry to hear that Rum Runner wasn't up to your expectation. We are frankly very surprised to hear this, because this is one of our most popular properties. We have called attention to your comments by the pool and spa vendor. He typically is very good about policing the pool area and ensuring that everything is just right. Likewise we are sensitive to being sure everything is working as good as it can during a guests stay so we do replace all a/c filters and blubs on a monthly basis. The a/c was actually working properly, and the a/c vendor that was dispatched to the property confirmed that it was cooling properly during your stay. We are sorry it was not to your satisfaction. As you are aware we actually replaced the washing machine during your stay which we know was disconcerting since you had a sick child staying with you that week. Please know we tried to get the replacement of the machine done as quickly as possible and with as little interruption to your stay as possible. We do hope your next stay with us will be less eventful, and you enjoyed your week at Rum Runner otherwise. All the best from Outer Banks Blue!
