This house was great. We had room for everyone and the games kept the teenagers busy. The pool was good, had a few weeds around the fence but all good. House was close to beach, shopping and restaurants. Would stay again when in area.

This property was as advertised, plenty of room for our whole family of 16. Steps away from the beach with plenty of amenities, we kept busy all week long. We are thankful to have had beautiful weather to enjoy everything the area had to offer. After just 24hrs the place really felt like home away from home. Be warned the Dunes are on the steeper side so if have mobility challenged family members you will need to travel to a better access point. The property is in good shape, although the pool area and upstairs outdoor seating area could use some TLC. And there were some areas that could have used an extra cleaning pass, to be fair it's has to be difficult to turn a property around in 6hrs. In the end this entire trip exceeded expectations. And I can highly recommend this property for your trip to OBX.

Check in process was easy, I received an email with detailed instructions. No issues. The house was great, Clean and plenty of room inside the house. The location was good, a short walk (over sand dune) to the beach. One major issue we had was that the dryer did not work. This may seem minor, but with 8 adults and 8 kids (all under the age of 6) we were expecting the dryer to work, especially since it was apart of the listing. The worst part is once I contacted the managing agency, they simply said it was a known issue and they would let us know when someone would be over to fix it. The dryer was never fixed. We would have appreciated to be notified prior to our arrival of this issue, we would have packed more clothes. This was a major inconvenience that was not handled correctly by the managing company.
Speaking of inconvenience, it should be known that there is construction right next door to the house. The land owner is building his house, and then a bigger house in the back. Construction just started, so any renters can expect to hear noises from this construction throughout, atleast for the next couple months.
The biggest disappointment was the pool area. It was in terrible condition. We found cigarette butts and tobacco pouches all around the pool area. The area outside of the pool was overgrown from weeds and leaves from the trees. The hot tub was missing panels and the lounge chairs were rusted and in disarray. The pictures in the listing were very different than what we experienced. The pool was not cleaned when we arrived, and was never cleaned while we were there. There was sand and leaves in the pool that we had to try and clean ourselves.
Overall the inside of the house was great, but we came to the outer banks to be outside, and the pool area and the beach is where we wanted to spend most of our time. The pool area was such a disappointment that we will not be back to this rental.

The property was stocked, spacious and accommodated our family. We had the best time and would certainly go back and recommend this property to anyone. This was our first time in OBX and we are already planning to come back!

Overall our stay was great. The house is nicely decorated and was very clean. It's right across the street from the beach so it was easy to get to. We didn't know that there is a home being built in the lot next to the house. So that was frustrating because we were on vacation and had to listen to saws and hammering instead the peacefulness of the ocean across the street. Not through any fault of the property owner but we were without water for a day due to the construction going on. Would have been nice to know that it was going on. The hot tub was not working for us but the management company did email and say they would send someone out to check it, we just didn't realize it until the day before we left. So atleast it would be fixed for the next renter. Overall the house and location are great.
