Just came home!! Oak Island is Wonderful!!
Our family just returned from Oak Island where we had an amazing time. Our family has rented numerous vacation homes over the years.. Of course, there is always a little good and bad. If we were to go back to Oak Island, we would probably try to find either a better unit or a different property to stay at. We believe it is the small details and extra little touches that give you a warm welcome. This unit missed that - feels like the owners are doing the minimum and collecting the max profit.. There are plenty of places to choose from on Oak Island. Here are our pros and cons
*Swimming Pool!! We Loved the pool. Can bring pool floats, toys
*Elevator!! This is definitely a perk when you have stairs.
*Pet Friendly!! Our family brought one furry friend who loved his vacation.
*Open floor plan in living area is very large and nice for gathering.
*Lots of cabinets and closets
*Bedrooms are nice size.
*4 bathrooms - NOTE: No tub
*Maintenance is easy to deal with and comes right away.
This particular unit is in need of a little TLC.
*The rug really needs to minimally be cleaned, but replaced in the main living areas with hardwoods would be better.
*Sofas are ready to retire or need new cushions.
*Kitchen cabinet doors- if you like puzzles, these will be fun for you. Some are installed right, some are installed wrong.
**Coffee pot needs to be replaced with one that brews coffee in harmony. Black and Decker and Mr. Coffee do not work well with each other.
**Beautiful dining area but not enough seats for 8 people to sit around the table. Some of the bar stools need to be fixed.
*Be careful to verify exactly what is included when you read "Linens are included." No bath or kitchen towels included. Inquired before check in and was told "Linens included" - One bath towel per person for an entire week is not really what we expected. We would've brought our own if we had known.
*Housekeeping needs to take it up a notch.
**Oven needs to be cleaned inside. No Broiler pan.
**Beds were not made when we arrived. All other properties we've ever stayed at always had the beds made if the linens were included.
**Shower floors were not the cleanest we've experienced.
*No Tub - Unit has 4 bathrooms, but no tub
**Parking can become a challenge. People do not always follow the rules and park in the assigned spots. But, if you report it to maintenance, they will work with you.
