“The Birds Nest”
Our stay at the Birds Nest was very nice. It has all the comforts of home to enjoy. Beds were comfortable. Decks were nice and only a couple blocks walk to the beautiful beach was a plus.
Response from the manager Thanks for posting a review; we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Please vacation with us again soon!
“Excellent week at the OBX!!!!”
This is our 3rd year staying at the Bird's Nest. They have redone the counters in the kitchen and painted the cabinets. Looks very nice, brightened it up. There were a couple pieces of potato chips about the size of half dollars on the floor and the counters were not wiped off very good when they cleaned, still had some residue on them. I probably should of called housekeeping but it wasn't anything major just need to be aware next time. We had a wonderful time and this place met all our expectations.

“The Birds Nest”
The Pros: The Birds Nest was a beautiful home, with plenty of space, and only a short walk to the beach. The homeowners did a wonderful job with stocking the home with necessities, books, movies, and games. The home is also less then a mile away from grocery stores, restaurants, and shops. The Cons: Unfortunately the beautiful home was not very clean upon our arrival. There was clothing, a blanket, pizza crusts, and a used swim diaper left on the bedroom floors from the previous vacationers. There was dirt and sand on the bathroom floors and in the bathtubs. We spent our first evening in the home cleaning...which was a little disappointing. We have visited the Outer Banks before, but this was our first time using Atlantic Reality to rent our vacation home. Atlantic charges an administration fee, which we never had to pay with any other rental company in the past. I'm not sure what that fee covers? We were due a small reimbursement from Atlantic because of the teacher discount they offer, and I felt like if I wouldn't have emailed our "agent" multiple times regarding the refund it never would have happened. Although we had a great vacation, the level of customer service and cleanliness of the property was certainly nothing to write home about.
Response from the manager Thanks for your review; please pardon our delayed response: site issues have been resolved,allowing us to once again respond to reviews! We see an email from you through 'guest services' just a few hours after you checked in, stating that you were very pleased with the property, but had noticed some sand in the hot tub and wanted to make us aware so that it didn't eventually cause an issue with the tub...that would have been the perfect time to let us know of any cleaning issues...we would have certainly addressed them. To our knowledge, ALL rental companies charge an administrative fee (some charge much more than ours); it is a fee that covers processing of the reservation and the lease agreement. We can also see in our system that we did not receive proof of your qualification for the teacher's discount until seven days after you 'booked'...we cannot apply the discount until the documentation has been received, so it was not a refund, but application of the discount. We do hope that you will stay with us again on a future OBX vacation!
“Loved the rental, hated atlantic Realty”
Regarding my experience with atlantic Realty, I was displeased with their level of Customer Service. No one was friendly or helpful when I called to book The Bird's Nest. We love OBX. We are used to dealing with super friendly agents ready to answer questions and offer information about the area and the home. But with atlantic, I never felt welcome. It is a shame because we really loved the property, however we will never use atlantic Realty again. In addition to their lack luster customer service, they charge a $100 administration Fee which we have never had with other Realty Companies. Their "Fun-in-The-Sun" program was a joke. We took advantage of the free beach chair rentals - they were rusted and broken. The activities that are "free" require a long drive to get there and only one person gets the freebie so it is more like a coupon. I wasn't interested in driving to Kitty Hawk for miniature golf (we were staying in Corolla) for a free round for one child when there was one within 1/4 mile of the property. I am assuming that the $100 administration fee probably pays for those "Fun-in-The-Sun" freebies, hence not free at all. Finally, they require a $500 security deposit which is outrageous and they refund you 30-60 days after you check out! So they are clearly earning interest on my money. There is no reason why it should take that long to assess any damages to the property (of which there were none) and hit a button to refund my money. The other option is a non-refundable ($60-80) security deposit which covers you up to $1500 worth of damage. They really get you either way. Again, we have never had to pay this before. Normally a security deposit is small and is refunded immediately. The home was beautiful, clean and packed with great games and amenities. We used the kitchen each night and appreciated that it was well stocked. The hot tub was a nice bonus as well. It was an easy walk to the beach. The pics on the website are accurate.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we value both your time and the feedback. While we are clearly disturbed by the fact that you “hated Atlantic Realty,” we are pleased that you enjoyed the property in which you stayed. I forwarded your post to the entire staff, as we take each review very seriously, to remind everyone of the importance of friendly, informative customer service! Any other effort to address the specific issues that you mentioned will just come across as being very defensive, so let’s just say that we deeply regret your ill-feelings towards our company, our policies and procedures, and as is within the guidelines of the North Carolina Real Estate Trust Account Laws, your security deposit will be forthcoming.
“Great family vacation!”
The Birds Nest was an awesome house. It provided everything we needed. The house is very spacious and everyone had a great time. The walk to the beach was not bad at all and having a wagon to pull some of our things, cooler, canopy, was a big help. We hope to be back there next year!
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 hope to see you again next year, too!
“Such a relaxing and fun time!”
We loved this house! So clean and had everything we needed. Our teenage daughter and her 2 friends loved the playing the games and laying out on the deck. The house was a short walk to the beach, so we really didn't miss not having a pool. Nice quiet neighborhood which was great for riding bikes around to explore. The kitchen had everything we needed, which made eating in so much easier. We had such an amazing time just relaxing and spending quality time with our family. The hot tub was great after a day riding bikes. Rooms were a nice size and the upstairs family area was big enough to fit all 8 of us comfortably. Definitely can't wait to come back next year!!

“A great week in the OuterBanks with family”
The Birds Nest was a very nice rental home for our vacation in the Outer Banks. Our family has been coming down to OBX for the last 20 years from New Jeresy. This home was very well maintained and we are very happy with our first time rental through your company, Atlantic Realty.
“Great Time In Corolla”
The Birds Nest was a clean beautiful and spacious home only a short walk from the beach. Breakfast on the sun deck and ended our days in the hot tub. We enjoyed the beach,wild horses,light house as well as the local restaurants.
