“Beautiful views, but beach access is a big problem”

House is lovely and very well laid out. Views are awesome, especially for a Semi Oceanfront house. House was very clean upon our arrival. Pool, outside toilet, and grill area all great, however pool is small and shallow. BUT problems did put a damper on the vacation - when you stepped into the tub/shower in the upstairs bathroom it felt like you were going to go right through it, and we discovered that water was running into the downstairs bathroom from that tub. Water stains were a pretty good sign that this was not a new problem. An even bigger problem for us was the beach access. A property dispute with the neighbors has left this house with no beach access other than to walk to the end of the street and use the public access; quite a hike with young children, especially when we had been told it was just over the dune behind the pool when we signed the lease. I called rental agency numerous times to discuss problems, every time I was told they would have to talk to someone else and would call me back, they did not. However, they did send me a check for $125.00 for the inconvenience, which was at least something. If this house had better beach access I would rent it again, too bad the owner cannot work something out with the neighbors to gain use of an access path - cant't help but wonder why neighbors on two sides suddenly put up fences to deny passage from this property.

“Fantastic Place in a Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This house is amazing and the company that manages it is great too. There is more than ample space in the house. We had 15 people (two being young kids) in the house and never once felt crowded. The views are breathtaking from the balcony especially in the morning to watch the sun come up over the ocean. The pool is a great escape from the salt water and the waves at the ocean. The house is located far enough away from the hustle and bustle to feel completely secluded in a small cul-de-sac , but it is very easily a short car ride (3 miles) to the tons of shops in Nags Head. We only stayed for a week and wished we had more time. Never got bored, and the extra little bonuses, like a dvd collection, board games, etc ensured there was always something to do. All in all this was a great vacation in a great house with a company that you can tell really takes care of the property.

“Location is the reason to stay here.”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

While the home needs TLC, the location is unbeatable! The house has taken a beating on the outside and when I pulled up I thought we had made a huge mistake. However, after getting settled in, the place grew on me dramatically. With the windows opened ( and closed) you can hear the ocean and get an amazing breeze. There is a bike and walking path right out front, we took advantage of that and loved it. Plenty of space. I already new from previous reviewers that there are no bathrooms connected to any of the bedrooms, be prepared for that aspect. The carpets and blinds need to be replaced. Bathrooms are dated but clean.
Our bed was comfy enough, we brought our own pillow and blankets, which I recommend and the six teens had no trouble sleeping, but when do they ever?
There was a leak from third floor bathroom to second floor bathroom coming from tub, one of our astute boys noticed this and we let the property managers know, hopefully it will be remedied.
No weird smells which I always hate and all appliances were in working order.
Beach is clean and not packed. Currently it is a beach break, so not a good idea to body surf, surf, or boogie board right out back of the house, but plenty fine for goofing off.
