“Good location, that's all!”
Large house with an excellent location, but the house itself needs work and a good cleaning! Dryer was broken -- set on highest temperature, with broken lint filter. Although Atlantic Realty promised to send someone to fix it -- no one ever showed up. (Definitely a fire hazard.) Many broken plastic chairs on the decks. Mold problem around the air conditioning vents. Sand swept into the corners in the bathrooms, etc. Very poor internet access.
Response from the manager Thanks for posting a review! We regret the issues that you experienced; I have passed along your comments to both property managers, housekeeping, and maintenance. Please give us another chance on a future OBX vacation!
“Location great, but not the rental”
Location and beach were excellent. The house is very dated and needs immediate attention for mold and mildew. Whirlpool tub in bedroom was unusable due to mold. The mildew smell was throughout the house. We had a very bad ant problem that was reported the day after arrival but not treated until 21/2 days later. Found ants everywhere including in beds, on couch etc. Paint was peeling on walls of one bedroom and sliding doors were nearly impossible to open due to rust. Overall, a very uncomfortable stay in this property. Wifi was spotty at best so don't rent if you need to be connected for work, etc.
Response from the manager Thank you for this detailed review; site issues have just been resolved, allowing us to respond to our reviews once again, so please pardon this delayed response. We regret the issues that you experienced during your stay, and our property and maintenance managers are in touch with the owner in efforts to resolve these concerns. We hope that you will stay with us again in the future!
Good location, 3 minute walk to private beach access,, Great when you have kids. House itself was dated and needed refreshing and new paint and carpet. Had ants.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and thank you for choosing Atlantic Realty for your accommodations. We regret the ‘dated’ appearance and have passed along your comments to the owners. Those pesky ants have presented themselves all too often (in other properties, too!) this season…keeping the pest control companies very busy! We gladly reimburse for any supplies purchased to exterminate them, but obviously wish the problem didn’t exist in the first place. Please come again!
Great house for two families. We really enjoyed staying and when we vacation again in Duck we will certainly look at renting again. House is very close to the beach with easy access. Had to have some plumbing work done and the plumbing company that was sent out did an awesome job and were very friendly. Thanks again for allowing us to be able to rent the Fan ta sea.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback.

We do hope that you will stay with us again on your next OBX vacation!
“not what we expected”
The house from the outside looked pretty. The decorating was horrid, it didnt look like a beach house at all. We reserved two weeks in this house. Everyday we had a contractor out fixing electrical issues, cleaning, railings were falling off the house, the stove wouldnt work, we had an ant problem. All in all we would never stay in this house again and wouldnt recommend this property.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we value both your time and the feedback. We regret and apologize for the issues that you experienced with this property! I have forwarded your comments to our managers...they are already aware of these problems, but it is helpful to "hear" the feedback and pass along to the property owner. We hope that you will try one of our other properties on your next OBX vacation!
the house was wonderful..we have been staying in Duck for many years and this was our second favorite house..however, the toilets were terrible..it took at least 3 times to flush them..some work on the deck upstairs would be nice, the floor on the deck had some loose woods..also everywhere we have stayed had beach chairs for the strand so we did not bring ours and had to purchase them...the floor plan was great..plenty of room and privacy..we would stay there again even with the toilets like they are..
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. We have passed along the comment about the toilets to the owner. Our FUN N SUN program offers two beach chairs for your use during your stay, but you do have to make the call to take advantage of this...I regret that you had to purchase them! Please do come back to vacation with us!
“Looks and Feels Like an Unloved Rental”
This house is a very good value and why this is the third time we have stayed here. Cons: From our first visit there has been an issue with ants. This year the ants are gone but the entire unit smells like raid. It is advertised as having a DVD player, which it does, but we have never been able to figure out how to use it. Instructions would be nice. Same complaint we have had all 3 years. No response. Same with the CD player. Do you mean the little clock radio in the kitchen? The fridge in the kitchen has sounded like its on its last leg for 3 years. The bottom shelf on the door is still broken. Big con: A workman came to the property to fix 3 of the 6 DR table chairs. No one told us they were coming. Luckily, my mother-in-law was there. Our purses were laying in the kitchen! The rugs in the bathrooms were dirty but the bathrooms themselves were clean. The carpets were not well vacuumed. I don't mean sand, I mean hard thistles and debris. The outside of the unit is really dirty. We have watched it deteriorate over the past 3 years. Pros: Value. Large. Well-stocked large kitchen. Plenty of bathrooms. Airy. So much unused/untapped potential. Thank you for new LR pillows and mattress pads and pillows.
Response from the manager As a guest of Atlantic Realty your comments are important to us and we thank you for continuing to bring these matters to our attention. We will certainly bring the equipment issues to the property owner's attention and strongly encourage them to follow-up on your suggestions. With regard to the workman showing up unannouonced. That is most assuredly against our policy. We apologize for this oversight and we will inquire further as to how this could have occurred so it isn't repeated. We trust that your housekeeping concerns were reported during your stay so that they were addressed and remedied at that time. We thank you for choosing Atlantic Realty for your vacation accomodations.
We have rented this home in past years through another realty company. We like the location in North Duck and how close it is to the beach relative to the weekly cost. The home offers a lot of open space on the upper level and the decks are very nice. Due to an electrical storm, one of the two A/C units was not working when we arrived. Atlantic promptly sent fans and a repairman on Sunday! The unit was repaired early the following day. We appreciated the excellent response during the very hot week. The indoor and outdoor furniture upgrades were nice. The addition of wireless internet and the DVD system is also apprecitated. The only issue could be the arrangement of the outdoor garden hose/shower/drainage. Water tends to pool near the lower home entrance which is undesirable.
“Nice peaceful vacation, close to ocean!”
Overall, we liked the house. It was in an attractive neighborhood. It was very spacious and clean. We liked having 3 bathrooms and a powder room. Liked having washer and dryer inside, near bedrooms. The kitchen was huge with lots of counter space and well equipped. There were a few drawbacks. One was lights missing outside on the deck, outside bedrooms. It would have been much more appealing to have more light and also less dangerous. We also missed not having a table outside to eat dinner since there was spacious decking. The other was quite a few spiders in various places and some carpenter ants found occasionally in one of the downstairs bedrooms. We also found some on the kitchen counters and window sill in dining room. Those are things that can easily be fixed by Atlantic Realty and if they are, I would highly recommend Fan-ta-sea and would consider staying there again. We received good service and would surely rent with Atlantic again.
“Large, Comfortable Home”
We enjoyed the size of the beach home and how convenient the house was to the beach. However, we had bug issues (specifically ants) for most of the week. Ants were in the dining room, living room, and in the twin beds bedroom. We eventually called the rental office and an exterminator came and sprayed but it kind of put a damper on our vacation. The rest of the house was more than adequate, with fairly comfortable bedding, a well-stocked kitchen, and lots of decks to relax on.
