Beautiful view and location, but amenities incorrect
This condo has a beautiful back porch view and a good location close to Grandfather Mountain and Banner Elk. We thoroughly enjoyed sipping coffee on the porch swing. We also enjoyed the futon sofa in the living room. But, we were unimpressed with the kitchen amenities. The listing describes the kitchen with "full amenities." As we began to cook chili one night after a long day we could not even open the cans because there was no can opener. That morning we didn't have a spatula for eggs. After closer observation there was no serving spoon, cutting board, baking sheets, mixing bowls, etc. The knives were dull and the tips bent (looks like people tried to open cans with them - we as contemplated doing.) The list goes on. There were two pots for the kitchen and two frying pans. We only had four adults and a toddler - if six adults were staying there is no way we could have easily prepared a meal with what was available. The coffee pot seemed very worn out since it took over 45 min to brew a pot of coffee the first morning. The kitchen sink was leaking into the lower cabinets so we had to call the rental company who promptly sent someone out to try and help. (He also brought a can opener and a spatula! Thanks Sam, who was great!). But, there were no scissors for us to get the can opener out of the package. We were unable to use the kitchen sink for the rest of the trip and couldn't run the dishwasher. Aside from the sick the drain stop in the master does not work. Not always a problem for adults but children like baths. The chairs around the kitchen table have nail heads sticking out near the joints.... again, toddler feet. All fixable problems and based on our experience with the rental company during our stay they will be fixed promptly. But, we should have saved some money and stayed in a hotel since we didn't have a fully functioning kitchen anyways.
Great Condo...Loud Construction
The unit was spotless and the view was breathtaking! The only hiccup was some construction going on right outside our unit. Some sort of drilling that literally shook the windows! I know improvements must me done, but wow! Very loud. I would book here again, regardless of the noise. I would just inquire about the construction first...getting a unit that was quieter.
Hello Rebecca, We apologize that your stay was disturbed by the construction that the condo association was conducting. We hope to host you again in the future!
