Reviewer Comments:

We have rented houses in Duck, Southern shores, and Nags head for the last 20 years, about 15 times. In the past 10 years we have rented large houses for FAMILY reunions with always more than 15 guest, and paid on average $12-15K USD. When you pay this amount of money for a 1 WEEK rental, we have come to grow to expect really a very TOP quality rental. From wear, tear, quality, cleanliness, and extras. This is the first year we do NOT feel that this expectations was met for the money paid. or experience was "OK' but not GREAT. That said, we thought we would take the time to share with you our opinion of this property, which we have NEVER felt need to do in the past 20 years after ANY stay we had, nor did we feel need to have to provide this. However, we felt as our price point has grown with size of our family so compelled by some our findings that we thought it important to share this detail and we did in writing to the rental company listing because this was was our collective feeling after this stay. Last detail, We were told that this owner also has like 6 other properties, and its a business for them, not a homeowner of one unit only... not sure...if so, even more reason to pay attention...cheers, and safe travels.

Reviewer Comments:

Our group of 18 (ages 2-70) stayed in this beautiful home last week. It was fabulous. Location could not be better and the beach was great. The house is very large and all of the beds extremely comfortable. So nice that every bedroom has it's own bathroom. The kitchen is the most well stocked we've seen. The two refrigerators, sinks, ovens, and dishwashers really came in handy. Lots to do within walking distance. The pier restaurant is a must, as is the pizza from the Lucky 12 right across the street. Only a few small maintenance issues which were quickly resolved. I can't say enough about this great property!

Reviewer Comments:

we have rented here for years & continue to notice the slowdeterioration that seems up & beyond the usual wear & tear of a rental home at the seashore. The overall cleanliness is very unsatisfactory; the bedding, carpets, and fabric furniture has never been replaced, and clearly not "switched out" or washed with the weekly turnover, just the sheets and towels only. Needs a more consistent "handyman" upkeep for sliding doors, screen holes, outside decking upkeep, etc. Still missing dishwasher silverware bins. Never an adequate vacuum cleaner for me to assist in cleanliness either.

Very nice home. Great views, good location. The linens that were supplied when we arrived were not packaged and in poor condition. There were 3 Refrigerators, and only 1 had the water supply on to make ice! The pool was not heated, even after the pool guy showed up to work on it. The elevator was a blessing, made it so much easier with luggage and groceries. We had great time and will definitely be back. Thanks to Beach Reality!!!

Reviewer Comments:

This was on my bucket list to do with my kids and grandkids and we had awesome time. The house was perfect and any problem I emailed Elaine at Beach Realty and she would respond quickly and have someone to the house almost immediately to address the request or problem. We were disappointed the hot tub wasn't able to be repaired until 2 days before we were to leave, and the pool was very cloudy, but that didn't stop the grandsons from having a blast in it. A few things the owners could add to the house would be slow cookers, crockpot and a large pot for seafood boils. Other than that I wish we would have had a few cleaning supplies so we could keep up the glass dining table. Most people don't want to buy this as they wouldn't use much, but if provided would tend to keep things cleaned. Thanks for a great time at this beautiful house. My only suggestion to anyone is to utilize the realtor and email them with any concerns. Otherwise they won't know of a problem. Don't give a bad rating if you have not addressed the problem first and then if it wasn't taken care of reviews can reflect that then.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback regarding your recent stay at "Shore Leave." We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time spent here on the Outer Banks! Elena is an amazing team player and is always willing to go above and beyond to ensure each guest is taken care of. We are sorry to hear about the issues with the hot tub. Unfortunately when these situations arise, we are at the mercy of the vendors and getting parts ordered to rectify the issue. We appreciate the advice you have shared with other vacationers! We hope to welcome you back to the Outer Banks again in the near future!

Reviewer Comments:

We rented this house for two weeks to hold our friends and our family for our Nags Head wedding. The condition of the house was terrible. There was sand all over the windows and hot tub was not working well. Also, the furniture is outdated and in need of repairs. The sofa corner had a piece of metal sticking out that actually cut one of our family members. The worst part was the first night when we discovered a mouse in the house. There were also mouse droppings on the top floor bedroom sheet. Horrible. We wanted the house rental to be an annual trip, but there is no way we are going back there. Shame on the owners for not keeping up with the house.
