My whole family come out to the outer Banks every year. We were supposed to rent this house last year but they had to fix the deck. This year we finally got to stay in this house. My wife was so excited to finally be staying right on the beach. Unfortunately that is the only good thing about the house. My parents and my 2 boys arrived a few days before us. They called me to inform me that the A/C was not working and they called the rental company Tuesday morning to notify them of the problem. A certified A/C repair man finally showed up Thursday and got it working but stated one of the units was completely shot. The A/C worked for less than a day and the sleeping rooms started warming up again. Saturday a man that works for the rental company showed up with window units for each of the bedrooms. We left for the beach to come back to the leaving quarters at 82 degrees. The rental company repair man came back and reset the outside breakers. I am very disappointed and I will not even go into the other things wrong with this house.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed May 29, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

You can't beat the location of this rental: Oceanfront on a wide clean beach. The two-tiered deck provides panoramic views of the beach. The elevator makes moving in and out a breeze. The only downside is that the furnishings are in need of an update. The window coverings appear to date to the 1980s. The walls need a new coat of paint. It is clean and well located, though.

My family just returned from a 6 day stay in this rental. To say we were disappointed with the property is a serious understatement. While it is true that the location near the beach is convenient and the outside decks are very nice, every other feature of the home was horrible. This house is extremely cramped, so you are on top of one another in the bedrooms and entire sleeping level. To call the "great room" expansive is a joke, it's not very big at all. The "well-equipped kitchen" features a leaky old fridge, a crappy electric stove with crooked burners, and shabby cookware. If you're going to claim the place sleeps 8 people, maybe you should have 8 glasses?! In addition, the paint is peeling off the walls, the carpets and couches are covered in stains and I was basically afraid to touch any of the pillows. The only word for this rental home is SHABBY. The owners and Surf or Sound have a lot of nerve charging these prices for it. I'm currently pursuing a partial refund.

“Right on the beach!!”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2014

Loved the location! This home provides what you need for a great family outdoor beach vacation. The proximity to the beach, outdoor shower, BBQ grill, and decks were wonderful. Though not updated in the least, the décor & kitchen provided basic necessities, however, the elevator was broken so we did have to lug our suitcases & belongings up 3 flights of stairs. However, we had a great time!!
