- Very Good
It was a nice house for the money. Had a few minor issues that were fixed a few days after arrival. Close to beach, grocery store and restaurants. Owner needs to provide secure wi-fi with a password.
Response from the manager Thanks for posting a review; we appreciate it. Please stay with us again on your next OBX vacation!
“Loved the pool.”
However, the accommodations were a bit dated. Not enough seating in the living room if you are accommodating 8-10 people. Seniors should really consider all of the steps in a 3 level house and the walk to the beach is very difficult. As stated the pool was great, spent most of our time there. Everything you need for cooking. Master bath floor was so dark it seemed unclean. Laundry in the lowest level outside, not convenient. Sorry for the negative reply but not a great impression for our first trip to the Carolina coast.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback. We regret the disappointment you felt in this home and your first trip to the OBX. While other guests’ comments also mentioned that the house is a bit dated, it was stated that it is a good value for the price paid, but we do agree that seniors should perhaps consider a home with an elevator, as many of our OBX homes are elevated to take advantage of views and to provide parking underneath. We have many other properties that may be more suitable to your needs…we’d love for you to come back again. Aside from the house that you selected, we hope that you did find the area enjoyable and worthy of a repeat visit!
“We would definitely come back!”
We have taken many beach vacations, but this was our first time to the Outer Banks, and definitely our favorite trip so far. The Craine's Nest is a nice house and very close to the beach, Harris Teeter, and other activities. We like to stay where there are not as many people, and Corolla was perfect. The ocean was icy cold the week we were there (we got in anyway!), but the pool and hot tub were nice to come back to, and well-maintained. We like to cook dinner in, and had a planned menu for the whole week. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals. The only real problems we encountered were that the fridge was a little too small to hold food for ten people, and we had to wipe the cupboard fronts and handles, as they were sticky. So, not really problems after all, as they didn't take away from the wonderful time we had! Can't wait to come back!
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. Housekeeping has passed along this feedback to all of our cleaners/inspectors so that a better job can be done going forward. Double refrigerators would be awesome! Please DO come back soon!
“Surviving the Heat Wave!”
Craine's Nest was the perfect house for our family during the July heat wave. We loved the huge, open family living area on the top floor -- lots of room for baby gear and everyone's computers. Having all the bedrooms on the lower level was wonderful for sleeping at all hours of the day -- extra nice for bringing the baby upstairs in the middle of the night to feed and rock without waking everyone else. Having the pool right in the backyard was perfect for our granddaughter who could play and swim without everyone having to go back and forth to the ocean beach. The non-sun-worshippers could sit in the shade on the porch or decks and still be part of the fun. The beach was only a couple of blocks away -- an easy walk if it wasn't as hot as our week was. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms were clean and lovely. (loved the shower in the hall bath!) Laundry facilities and house amenities were sufficient for all. The half-bath on the main floor was perfect for our preschooler. Having a food store (Harris Teeter) within walking distance was a real bonus. We would go back to this house in a flash.

“Fun in OBX”
We stayed at the Craine's Nest in July/August 2012. The location is very good - a short walk to the beach, close to Corolla and Duck. The house was well-equiped with iron, ironing board, crock pot, pots and pans, blender, etc. It had everything we needed for the week. The bathrooms are very nice - up to date and there is a convenient outdoor shower. The bedrooms are on the small size (I think the pictures are accurate). The bedding needs to be replaced(we didn't use it). The deck, pool and hottub are wonderful - so relaxing after a day at the beach. The house is dated, but perfectly fine. Some minor maintenance issues - broken handles, drawers, etc., outlet covers missing, etc., but nothing major. It could use a really good cleaning, carpet shampooing, etc. It wasn't dirty, it just wasn't glistening. We were very happy with the house for the price we paid and recommend it for a family on a budget that isn't looking for luxury. Enjoy!
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we value both your time and the feedback. I think this is a very informative review of this property and should be helpful to others. I have passed along the housekeeping issues to the appropriate parties. We hope that you will stay with us again on your next OBX vacation!
“Great house to relax and enjoy the beach in.”
Our family had a wonderful vacation in the Craine's Nest. Furnishings and home were clean. Bathrooms seemed new and updated. Kitchen was well equipped. Screened in porch was especially nice to enjoy dinner or a quick sandwich in before heading back to the beach. Short walking distance to beach access. Beautiful view of the ocean from the upper deck made you feel semi-ocean front. Pool was a good size for our family of 6. Would definitely book this house again.

“Great House - Great Time”
Craine's Nest was a great house - great value. It was a short walk to the beach - the house was 2 houses in from the street and down a block. The house itself was well equipped. Pool and hot tub were nice. Not a lot of privacy - it backed up to another house's pool with a fence in between - but never found it to be an issue for us. Ocean view (not beach view though) from balcony. Took 4 kids ranging in age from 2-13 and 4 adults and all had a great time. For babies and toddlers, there were a lot of toys and videos, pack-n-play and highchair. Stated strollers, but they were not in good condition. The jogging stroller was decent but might not fit into your car to take to other places. I would bring a small umbrella stroller. Only negative was the bathroom situation - there was a master bedroom/bath with a tub/shower combo and the only other full bath was just a shower and should be shared among 3 rooms (2 queen's and 2 twins). So could make for cramped quarters depending on who you are traveling with. Final downside is that a disabled or elderly person might have problems with all the stairs. The kitchen and living room were on the 3rd floor, bedrooms on 2nd. Ground floor was a laundry room, utility room, storage areas, etc. Overall though, I would highly recommend this house. If I could plan that far out, I would have booked the house for next summer on my way out. It was a great vacation at a great house for a great value!!!

“The house was clean and well maintained.”
The check in with altantic realty was great. The house was up to date and very clean. The location was good. Very short walk to the beach and beach access. The pool and hot tub were certainly the best. Thank you Craine's nest... For a life time of memories ...!!!
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments! We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and made wonderful memories while on vacation! Please come again.
“Great place to stay!”
This was our 3rd time at Craine's nest. It's in a great location for us; pet friendly which is key as we love to bring our two labs to the beach. The house has great amenities; great TV; bedrooms, etc. We truly enjoy our time at the outer banks in this house.
“Comfortable, Clean and Convenient!”
The Craine's Nest is a great vacation home that is super convenient to all that Corolla, NC has to offer. Centrally located, and within walking distance to Harris Teeter, this home was a wonderful way to spend our vacation at the shore.
