Lovely OBX family vacation
Nice sized home, well stocked with all the needed amenities for a fun and relaxing family vacation. The outside could use a power washing for cobwebs but the inside was clean and bright. highly recommend!
Great location and house. Wish we could have stayed longer than a week.
Corolla Classic Vacations would like to thank you for the great review!
Photographer deserves a raise. Pictures make rooms look bigger than they actually are. The showers in the bathrooms were extremely small. You could barely move in them. The house also needed a good powerwash. We couldn't use the screened in porch because of the web's and spider eggs. We had raw sewage come up in the tub and on the floor in the first level bathroom the first full day we were there and we were told it was because we ran the washer and someone took a shower at the same time ( too much water usage at one time). So, we had to take turns using water the rest of the week because we were afraid this would happen again.

We at Corolla Classic Vacations want to ensure that all guest enjoy their stay; reason why we have passed this information to the appropriate department to prevent this from happening in the future.

OBX 2019 Vacation
Awesome house and great location- house was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Hot tub & pool were very enjoyable. Access to Ocean Hills beach very convenient to either walk or drive . My grandchildren especially enjoyed the pool by the fitnesses center & turtle pond - large shallow area for the little ones! We were also within walking distance to Old Corolla Village, Lighthouse and the wild horse area. Lots to do and see. I highly recommend this house & location.
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review. Corolla Classic Vacations is pleased to know that you and your family enjoyed our home and the amenities we offer. We hope to have you back for another memorable stay.
Sand Castle - not really sound front
Overall the home is nice. It is very clean, stocked, and well organized. It isn't really sound front as advertised. I would have given a 5 star rating had it actually been sound front and would not have encountered the issues below.
Check In: The check-in process would be better if the management company would just send you the door access code and welcome packet to your email instead of having to stop into their office to receive.
It would have been nice if someone from the property management office would have walked through the property prior to our arrival and adjusted the thermostats to a setting more fitting to summer temperatures. The home was 86 degrees inside upon arrival and took until about midnight to cool down to around 75 degrees. Also, there are 5 bathrooms and only 3 of them had toilet paper in them. It was obvious that there had not been anyone in the house for many months as a lot of the surfaces and dishes had a dust coating on them. A spring cleaning after many months of dormancy would have probably helped.
Property access: The property allows access through an entry door next to the garage that is equipped with a code entry lock. Unfortunately the main entrance to the house and the door with direct Pool area access had double sided dead bolt locks on them that required a key. The property manager did not provide this key up front. I immediately called the management company and reported. The management company did come to the property and unlock these doors late the next afternoon.
Grill: The grill is older and pretty basic, but works well. Unfortunately the grill was fairly dirty upon arrival. It had food chunks on the grill surface, and some grease build up. I preheated the grill before use and cleaned the grill surfaces resolving this issue. Grill mats and/or aluminum foil also helps with this issue.
I was kind of surprised to see the pool guy servicing the pool on a Saturday afternoon. Figured this service would typically be completed on a week day.
Thank you for your recent stay; we hope that you enjoyed time spent with friends and family on the beautiful Outer Banks! We appreciate the time you’ve taken to provide valuable feedback; our apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment. Corolla Classic Vacations does require guest who are staying in Villages of Ocean Hill to check-in at the office; however we do have homes that have express check-in should you stay with us in the future. We do apologize for the thermostat and toilet paper, our housekeeping team is scheduled to go by each home prior to check-in to clean, please know that I will pass this information along to our housekeeping department. Again, we apologize and Corolla Classic Vacations hopes to have you back for another wonderful stay.
