Beautiful home

Review for WHL-34

Tuesday, Jul 19 2016
This is a lovely house, with exceptional amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the hot tub, that wonderful porch swing and hammock! The pool table was fun, although there isn't really room for full-sized cue sticks in the small rec room. This was our first stay in Corolla vs. Duck, and it was so much less crowded -- a real plus! The bedrooms are nicely sized and the beds were comfortable. As another poster noted, the kitchen is not as fully equipped as some houses we've rented but we got by just fine. It would have saved us a great deal of nervousness if the check-in material had explained the uniques front door locking procedure -- we couldn't lock the house the first night and next day, and sleeping with nothing but a chair under the door knob wasn't exactly comfortable! Once Sun Realty explained the maneuver we were fine for the rest of the week. If you rent this house, ask them at check-in! The provided linens, including towels, sure did make it easier to get everything and everyone in the car to come down! Our only negative was that three of us had allergy and/or eczema reactions to something in this house (we've all stayed in other OBX houses and done the pool/hot tub/ocean without a problem in the past). I vaguely suspect mold and would caution those with serious mold sensitivity to book a different house. For that reason alone, we will not rent this particular house again -- but we'll definitely be back to Corolla and renting from Sun Realty!


Thank you so much for the review Cheri. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed Thunder Road and all its great amenities. We will gladly inventory the kitchen to see what may be missing and make sure everyone has everything they need to prepare and cook while staying here. Thanks for bringing this to our attention as well as a suggestion to explain how the front door lock operates in check in material. Great idea! We apologize that you experienced issues with the front door lock and glad we were able to resolve the issue quickly. Regarding suspecting the possibility of mold; please know we will look into this immediately. Until receiving your review we had not received any reports of this being a possible issue. Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to your next vacation with us! ~The Corolla Team
