This is the most expensive place that we have stayed in the last 15 years and has the potential for being a great place. There is lots of space and nice features, but the owners don't take care of the place. There were spider webs all over the outside and inside of the cottage. We killed several spiders inside and there were webs everywhere inside.. There were six different wasp nests on the decks outside. The landscaping is terrible and not maintained. The light switches outside didn't work. We had no lights in the outside showers and the switches to the pool lights didn't work so they stayed on the whole time we were there. Outer Banks Blue was pretty responsive to our calls and texts and hired KICZ Maintenance to unclog the kitchen sink. Those guys worked hard and didn't quit until they had the problem fixed. If someone did a better job of maintaining the place, I would highly recommend it, but until then I would say find somewhere else to stay.

We have stayed at dozens of OBX properties over the years. This home is above average in several ways but it does show wear and tear. The positives- lovely, bright family room with gorgeous views in all directions, comfortable beds and sofas, pool and hot tub were perfect with late afternoon shade, nice layout of bedrooms, new flat screen TVs. Negatives - decking is worn, sliding doors/back doors getting very old, no screen porch, older appliances especially the ovens. For parents there is no safety fence around pool so you have to be careful. For us the positives far outweighed the negatives at this property.

This house has the potential for greatness due to its layout, amenities and proximity to the beach. However, many of the recent reviews submitted this summer (2013) I am afraid are true. Within 2 days of arrival the pool started to get cloudly and green. A call was put in the next day but it took over 24 hours and 2-3 more calls to have someone come out to address it. Bottom line is we lost use of the pool for 48 hours, but I will say that the person that did come was very friendly and did correct the problem and continued to check on the pool several times a day for the remainder of our stay. The other issues with the house have to do with lack of maintaining the home and really isn't something that can be addressed by the rental company during a stay. It's been stated many times that this is a very popular rental, however the owner should seriously consider continued improvements for this property to reach its full potential. The decor, bedding and the main living area furniture did seem to be new/updated for the better from the pictures on the rental site. The problems we experienced with the grill not working properly, ants in the kitchen, standing water in the tubs/showers, potential water issues in the upstairs master bathroom were all things one may expect to see with a rental, but the pool issue on top of all of the smaller issues is what tipped the scales to the negative side of our experience in this house. The responses to the reviews continue to highlight the positive fact that the house is located so close to the beach and that it is one of the most popular rentals but that will never outweigh the negative experiences continually reported with this property.

Dear cnmiller221, Thank you for your comments about this property. The pool at this property has been problematic over the last year, but we believe the matter is beind us as the owner agreed to replace the entire filtration system on the pool and things have been going well since your departure. We apologize that the property did not live up to expectations during your stay last month. Glad we were able to solve the other minor issues as you stated during your stay and rest assured your comments will be passed along to the homeowner for consideration. All the best from the beach!

We have been staying in Corolla for years and consider Pine Island one of the nicest areas. This house however was a big disappointment. There were so many things broken and in disrepair, the owners obviously haven't kept up with the wear and tear of an OBX rental property. We called the rental management company about the main issues and some were handled in a few days, others never done. The carpets were stained/dirty, food still under furniture. Master shower was full of hair and was moldy. Basketball hoop was literally missing. Most of the hottub (tub was dirty) controls were broken. Old mattress left next to outside showers, which had not be cleaned. 2 TV Remotes didn't work. Cabinets in kitchen were loose and about to fall. Screens left lying next to windows. Outside was littered with trash. 2 of 4 pool cues were broken. Owners need to step up, clean and fix house and update past 1987 decor. Outer Banks Blue was fairly responsive, but should have walked the house, noted broken items and fixed them before our stay. We literally spent the first 2 hours cleaning and repairing what we could. On the plus side, the house is convienent to the ocean and we had fun neighbors.

Mr. Stohlman, Thank you for your review of Babyboomers@Pi.com. We apologize that you were not completely satisfied with your stay with us. This property does have a fantastic location and is one of our most popular properties for that reason. We did indeed try to rectify every situation that you brought to our attention, and the ones that could not be solved were passed along to the homeowner for their future resolution (such as wear of the carpet). This homeowner is typically quite responsive to suggestions for improvements and we are sure he will take your comments to heart for the benefit of future renters. We look forward to serving you again soon. All the best from the beach!
