Review for 275-AWednesday, Jul 31 2019
We’ve been vacationing at the Outer Banks for years...5 families ranging in age from 85 to 2. This was our first time staying on the sound side. We were looking for a house that fit our needs rather than solely location. This house checked off a lot of our must haves...an open main living area, plenty of seating, a spacious kitchen (we do a lot of cooking rather than eating out), and a large pool area. The location turned out to be great...a quiet neighborhood that offered us privacy while lounging by the pool. We were in walking distance of the sound as well as Trios and Sweet Frog (our evening dessert spot). Beach access points were a short drive away. The kitchen was awesome....very spacious and well stocked with all the things you would need. Unfortunately the dishwasher broke our first day. A repair man came on Monday to assess the problem. A piece had been broke and he said it appeared it had been that way for awhile.!! This news was frustrating!! The part did not come in until Thursday....so we did without a dishwasher for almost our entire vacation hand washing ALL the dishes for every meal for 5 families!! The rental contract prevented us from seeking any financial restitution. When we checked in there were little bugs (looked like little mosquitoes, but not) all over the ceiling of the stairwells, main entry level, and some on the upper level. We called and a cleaning crew was going to be sent, however, we found a vacuum and sucked them off the ceiling ourselves. We found hundreds of the bugs outside the main front door so previous occupants must have left the doors open. If you don’t need to be walking distant to the beach this house would be a good choice.
