Just keeps getting better

Now that the new pictures are up, if someone is allowed to post more than one review, I want to do that. Every improvement the homeowners have made has just made First Wind a better and better vacation home! We truly appreciate that we get a call very early in our stay each year just to check in on things, and the new countertops are as beautiful as they are useful. And the improvements to the minibar area were just right :) Looking forward to 2018!

Is a great review such a good idea?

There's a degree to which I always worry about giving a place the five (or more?) stars it deserves, since there's always the fear of, "What if other people find out!?" I have to admit, though - other people should find out about First Wind. Fantastic house, beautiful setting, and super responsive owners. My family has been going to OBX since 2001 and for the past several years, we feel as if he have found Home. Last year (on which this review is based) was fantastic and very much looking forward to showing up this Saturday. We always get a call from the owners early in the week to check in, and we've appreciated from year to year each thoughtful upgrade.

2014 Vacation

Hard to believe that this was our third year in this house. Five years ago our group started our OBX vacations. The group kept growing and once we found First Wind that is the only house for us. First wind has lots of room for large groups. The view of the ocean is fantastic and the beach is very close. You feel like you can touch it from the house. There has been a few upgrades this year, which I was please to see. Sad to say a few more are needed. Especially the beds. The are old and need to be replaced. Was very disappointed that the pool table was missing not only cue sticks but a few of the pool balls. We had to use our extra cue balls and mark them in order to play. It doesn't matter if there is a day of rain or overcast skies. A day at OBX with friends provides plenty of sunshine even in the rain.

15 years @ this house.

Large house with a great location. Close to shops, restaurants, attractions and beach front. We have a large group of friends (29 this year including children) from FL to NJ that have met here for the past 15 years. Never feels crowded. Perfect for a large group. However, after this many years I would expect some updates other than TV's or just replacement of broken items like the fridge or dishwasher. Same carpet, kitchen floor, counters and mattress's for 15 years. Be prepared for a chiropractic bill.....the beds are crippling with every spring poking you all night long. Room 2 on the third floor is unbearable. Similar complaints as other reviews regarding the vacuum cleaners and Wi-Fi. We have gotten used to sending someone back and forth to the downstairs fridge. Overall a perfect size house and great location. Just keeping hoping for some major updates. Maybe next year we will be surprised. First year 5 stars. 15 years later 3 stars.

2013 OBX Vacation

The pictures on this page are very deceiving. We had a very large group & I was worried that we would be tripping over each other. Boy, was I wrong. This house was huge! Big rooms, lots of room for everyone. And the location was amazing. Great view oceanfront & soundside (great view of Wright Bros Memorial). I would suggest some upgrades though. With a kitchen as big & well stocked as it is and a house that fits a large number of people, the one, small refrigerator was not sufficient. You either need 2 large or 1 commercial size fridge upstairs. It was good that we had the one on the bottom floor, but it was very inconvenient. The vacuum cleaners were useless. They need to be replaced. Some minors repairs are also needed here and there. Also, I heard a lot of complaints about the wi-fi. It had a very low range even when you were sitting right in the same room with the router. All-in-all, though, it is a great house! Gorgeous views! We had great weather, great friends/family, great food, tons of fun & laughs. Just an awesome week despite a few house issues. Thank you for allowing us to share your home!

Best house on the beach

Loved this house. We had a large group w/lots of kids and it never felt crowded. The house wasn't perfect, there were some things that could've been better but overall the house was great. Suggestion to the owner....upgrade the refridgerator in the kitchen to a larger commercial sized one. There are 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers, 2 sinks & a 6 burner stove in the kitchen....but only 1 regular sized fridge. We were running to the first level fridge all the time...inconvenient when you're trying to feed a bunch of hungry folks. Also....we were required to vaccuum before we vacated....which is fine, not a problem, except the vaccuums were horrible. It didn't even look like we did anything. They dumped a pile of sand when the vaccuum was turned off. If you want your tenants to vaccuum, provide better equipment. I would definitely stay here again with my fantastic group of people despite the minor inconveniences.

Perfect for a Group

This house is perfect for a large group of adults. My friends and family vacation together annually and our numbers keep increasing. We had 17 adults so the number of private rooms with queen and king beds are a big factor. The house is in great shape but needs to replace some of the beds. The bedspreads needed cleaned and the house was not dusted in weeks. Most took the bedspreads off the bed and just used sheets and blankets. I would recommend that renters bring toilet paper with them as Sun removes all from the house and only gives you 1 roll when you check in. Other place we rented in the past left the paper and gave you coffee, filters, dish soup and a few other things left in the kitchen. Plus the linens were placed on the beds and the towels left in each room. It was tiring organizing the linens and towel when I got there for everyone, Plus putting a fast grocery list together for the staples. I will just know next year what to expect. Yes we rented the house again for next year.

Great House

The house was great. We went with extended family, 25 adults and 6 children total, and there was room for everyone. They advertise 2 cribs but only one was useable. The view is the best, the elevator is convenient, the pool and hot tub were great. The bed covers should have been cleaned but we worked around the few that were dirty. One sink was not working and it took several calls to get it fixed. A tropical storm passed through while were there and the windows leaked. We would stay here again.

Sun Realty thanks you for vacationing with us and hope you will be able to return to the Outer Banks for your next family reunion.

First Wind

We love First Wind. We have stayed in this house for the last 3 years and will be staying in this house again this year. The location of this house is amazing. We love that we can sit on the deck and talk to our children on the beach! Our only problem with this house is that we've noticed a lot of wear and tear on the house. Last year there were alot of things broken or not working properly and some of the furnishing were getting worn out. For a house of this size, we would love to see an additional Refrigerator in the kitchen. It would be nice to see some nice updates made to the house - but overall we have enjoyed staying at this house!

Fourth time on the OBX, but

Fourth time on the OBX, but first time with such a big family group needing such a large house, and first time to be oceanfront. We may be spoiled forever! To find this house, right on the ocean, and more affordable than some, was fabulous. The pictures on website do not do this house justice. It is way nicer, and way bigger, than it appears! The furnishings are slightly dated but more than adequate, but there are lovely decorator touches, and there is even more space in the living room area and family room than you see. Bedrooms are good size too. We had 24 adults/older children and six babies (including two brand new) and were never crowded. We spent the day on beach and in the pool and sat down for dinner every night together with room to spare. Don't worry about it being in a commercial area--there are hotels on each side but you barely notice them and the beach COMPLETELY clears out and you have it to yourselves by about 5 PM.

We stayed in this house 2

We stayed in this house 2 yrs ago. We went back to another location in Salvo this year and were we disappointed. We were spoiled by first wind, its closeness to the ocean, the rooms, the large refridgerators and multiple dishwashers and washers and dryers. If I can return to the OBX I will try to return to First Wind...its views were the best ever!
