OBX Aug 2019
Great Location. Easy beach access. House is dated and needs updating, however it was clean. The decks need replacement. Careful not to get splinters. Wi-Fi in house didn’t work. We picked up a random open signal and used that. They need a new blender. It was broken. Otherwise, it’s a nice place. The location and beach access makes the house appealing.
Thanks Antonio for taking time to create a review for us. I'm sorry you had problems with the WiFi. Not sure what that issue was but cleaners on Saturday, and guests this week have not had any issues to my knowledge. Our Maintenance tech worked his magic on the blender and it is working fine. Will pass your info on in regards to the deck to the owners for winter plans. Glad you liked the location (one of my faves, too). Hope you can visit us again soon.
Our beach house
The rental was very close to the beach which was very nice.
We very much enjoyed it.
The downsides both showers outside were not working properly, 1 only had cold water and the other nothing.
You all sent out a plumber but didnt do anything, just told me to look for hot water valve,which I didn't find🙄
3 of the beach chairs were broken.
The pool was smaller then expected, but was nice to come home to.
Thanks again, we did have a great time
Thanks for your feedback. Apologies for the outside shower issue. He did go by and while there reported that the water line was cracked, which is an extensive repair, and that the other one's hot water was not turned on, which he said he turned on. Happy that this did not affect your nice time in Corolla.
Very relaxing week at the beach fro my family of 5 plus two friends, and our dog.
Overall we were pleased with the house. While it may not be luxurious it had everything we were looking for and needed at the beach. It is conveniently located a few houses from the beach access and there are ocean views from the deck off the main living area and one of the master bedrooms. We had more bedrooms than we needed, but the adults had the two upstairs master bedrooms while the kids spread out in three of the four 1st floor bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, cups/glasses, utensils, kitchen gadgets etc., even had martini glasses and a cocktail shaker (felt like home). The screened porch was a nice place to relax.
The pool, although small, was refreshing and a nice break from the ocean. Hot tub was excellent and the cover was even easy to open and close.
The game room with bumper pool and foosball kept us entertained periodically, although the bumper pool table needs some TLC.
There were many beach chairs and beach toys. Although we brought a few beach chairs and boogie boards, we did use a couple chairs that were fine and a boogie board that was in good shape. Plenty of buckets and shovels to play in the sand and a few umbrellas (but we did not use any of the umbrellas).
There were many games and puzzles.
It was nice to have linens and towels provided and they were clean and plentiful. The beach towels were not huge, so if you really like to lay on a towel on the beach you should consider bringing your own.
While some updates would make the house really shine, it was clean, comfortable, convenient, affordable, and dog friendly so it was really perfect for our trip to the beach.
Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. We are constantly updating our property and rely on the kind the words and opportunities for improvement from our guests. Thanks again and we look forward to serving you in the future!
Perfect Week in Corolla
First time staying at this home in Whalehead and our 5th time in OBX. Loved the location, just across the street from the beach and beach access just a few houses away. Nice view of ocean from the deck. Plenty of space in the house for our families and decks gated to keep the dogs safe. Easy biking to Corolla Lighthouse. Thanks so much for sharing your home!
Thank you for your lovely review! It was a pleasure serving you and we hope you will choose to stay with us again in the future.
The house is only a few hundred feet from the beach. House is in need of some updating, but Very Clean! Bring your own beach chairs since the ones there are old.
Thanks for your rental! It is an older house that is full of some amazing charm. We are constantly updating the property to make the experience better for our renters. You feedback is so important to our mission.
