We stayed in room 309 (I'm pretty sure that's it) with the hot tub. A little extra price, but it's nice to have the option of the covered hot tub when it storms to sit on the deck and watch the waves and storm roll through without getting pelted with rain and wind. That's what we did on our second... More

Property management ruined our family vacation. It appears that we are at risk for mechanical problems. No refund, no concessions, just sweat to death and do not sleep - still pay full price for BOTH nights the AC did not work. I suppose the rental contract says, "pay us whether we provide the service you are billed for or not".... More

My wife and I really enjoy staying at FFR. We first stayed there around 4 years ago and decided to take a quickie trip down to OBX at the end of October 2013 and decided to stay there again. We've stayed in the 2 bedroom unit 116 and this trip we stayed in the one bedroom unit 115. Both on... More

Excellent value in a one-bedroom unit. Our condo was 215, and was very clean, comfortable, and as listed in the Village realty website. Centrally located, it is close to many attractions. We were not given instructions on where to park and could not visit some sites due to the government shutdown. The unit had some of the tourist books we... More

Stayed in Unit 307 last week. Upon arrival, we were a bit confused as to where we could park. Called the Realtor and was told to park anywhere that was not "handicapped" or "permit only". Would have been good to know in advance. The view from the oceanfront balcony was fabulous. Nice deck furniture too. Unit was very clean, beds... More

Don't stay here because if anything goes wrong-like the AC breaking they won't do anything to help you, move you, or refund you any portion of your stay. It's apparently against their policy to make emergency repairs, make any partial or full refunds, or even kill you with kindness as they stick it up your butt! Doris Ann is rude... More

We are sorry that this guest felt that our company’s policies did not meet their expectations on how we are to handle issues and problems that arise during a guests stay. The condos at First Flight Retreat are individually owned and our company does not own any of them. As a property management company, we have guidelines and policies we... More

We (two families with small children) stayed in a 2 bedroom condo here recently and had the worst experience we have had on vacation EVER (and we vacation a lot). I'd also like to add that this is my first time leaving a review on Trip Advisor. I felt that the general public needed to know to avoid this condo... More

We stayed here in July after anticipating our vacation for several weeks. My nightmare began when I entered the condo. Our condo smelled so badly of cigarettes (non-smoking community) that I called and reported this immediately. We were given another condo that we could only use for approx.24 hours and had to move back in our condo the following day.... More
