Such negative comments about the OBX experience! If we are trying to decrease visitors to obx then this forum is doing it. It makes me sad to read all this over and over when I have had nothing but 25 years of great rentals from Sun, Stan White, Twiddy and Southern Shores realty. Nothing is perfect.. home owners don't do their thing equally so I pick a difference rental the next year...unless I can win the lottery and build my own house.(A lot we had considered buying for $35,000 in 1985 just sold for over $500,000. Of course, we could barely afford our home mortgage in1985!) I am sorry for others less than positive experiences. To new visitors, please don't think every house is awful!
