Reviewer Comments:

We had a family group of 14 stay at the Big Kahuna for one week in September. It is a large comfortable house and we had lots of room to spread out and enjoy ourselves. Every room had its own bath which was great. There a few minor items that could be improved or that potential renters should be aware of. There is no garbage disposal and the appliances in the kitchen did not work well. There are two ovens but one did not get up to temperature which made it difficult when cooking meals for 14. There is one refrigerator and one huge freezer. We needed more refrigerator room and less freezer room. The wine cooler did not seem to work properly and some of the burners on the stove did not get as hot as they should have. The extra blankets which were in the closet were not clean and had to be laundered before we could use them. The location is great! We really enjoyed the pool but had to pay extra to have it heated as it was cold when we arrived.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful vacation at the Big Kahuna. The location is awesome - steps away from beach access. But upon arrival is was evident that the house could use some TLC. I am sure outside conditions are hard to keep up with so I won't judge too harshly. But...many of the chairs around the pool were broken, a kitchen chair was broken, the curtain rod in the den was hanging off. Downstairs refrigerator had to be pushed closed and didn't get anything cold. There were no beach chairs with the house. There were little to no chairs on the many decks, so they were unusable. We planned on morning coffee outside our room - can't do that with no where to sit. The living space is smaller than it looks in the pictures. The pool room was tight with that many in the house, but still a great place to hang out! Overall, we had a fabulous vacation - would rent again and would recommend...but needs some TLC.

We had 21 of us in this house and it was not crowded at all. The house was very nice on the inside, but it needed major power washing on the outside (Spider webs everywhere). A little further to the beach than advertised,but overall a very nice stay!

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of 21 had a wonderful stay at the Big Kahuna! The bedrooms were spacious, the pool area was great, the distance to the beach was perfect! Only thing I would suggest is the home needs a few cosmetic updates, other than that, it is a fantastic home! We had such a great time at this home and made many memories that our family will cherish forever :) Thank you Beach Realty for your hospitality, you were wonderful to work with!

Reviewer Comments:

The Big Kahuna is a very nice large home which was perfect for our family reunion in the OBX, good location and an easy walk to he beach or a short drive to see the wild horses, the light house or to get to the grocery store. There was some miscommunication with the management company about the availability of pool heat (yes, you can get it for an up charge of $500 which for us was worth it) and some of the items at the home (we were told to bring our own blender (they have several) and that there was no Keurig machine (but there is). We experienced a. Our of clogged shower drains but the managers took care of them very quickly. Overall a great stay that was enjoyed by young and old.
