“House in Desperate Need of Repair”
Reviewed September 12, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Homers point for the week of Sept 3rd. I will list the pro and cons of the house below.
I will start off with the pros.
The house in on the beach and has a nice deck. The main room stairs is nice with a comfortable sofa.

Here are the cons.
The refrigerator is a bad joke. t has rust INSIDE it. It looks like something that was picked from the trash. The ice maker is broken. It took three days to get cold, and made more noise than ice! I am not kidding, it was terrible.
Almost everything is broken in someway. There are various broken outlets, the main bedroom ceiling fan was broken. The downstairs had a pee smell that must have been sprayed to mask it the first two days. The cleaning crew did a horrible job cleaning the property. Dirt was everywhere, I am not talking about sand that is understandable. I mean hair, I dropped something under the couch and found cheese puffs, match boxes and more hair and debris. The outside of the property was not any better, weeds everywhere, actually most of the development looked like it was impervious to landscapers.
You get what you pay for and can't trust the photos you see on the realtor websites. I should have taken my own they would have told a completely different story. Never again in Homers Point.

“Meh...but it's still the beach and we're together and saved some cash...”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Your basic needs are met, but, other than being on the beach, there are not a lot of perks here. Positives: Being on the culdesac end created a more private/less crowded part of the beach. It was nice to have the community tennis courts as a free cooler day activity and the area is pretty with easy access to groceries. This particular area of Corolla did not have bike paths but the roads appeared bike-friendly. Loved the keyless entry system. Negatives: The public access stairs leading up and over the dune to access the beach require some stamina, so if you are travelling with babies or like to lug a lot of equipment onto the beach, eat your Wheaties or a few athletic friends. Although you are on the beach, you will not be able to see your family playing on the beach from the deck as the dune is pretty high. The facilities were not particularly clean: crackers under chair cushions, stale urine smells in bathroom, and a mildew smell in the center downstairs bedroom. Two bathrooms was occasionally a struggle for 2 families. There are DVD players but no DVD's and there are VHS tapes provided but no VHS player. We would have loved to have had a yard space, a larger grill, and a hammock/porch swing. The community would benefit from some landscaping beautification and bike trails to improve its appeal.

Ms. Mcmahon,

Thanks for your review on this property and your compliments about how Outer Banks Blue kept our guests informed throughout the storm.
We actually only contacted the incoming guests after we visited each property to ensure everything was in good repair and ready for your return. It sounds like you did get that call, and we didn't know you were expecting follow up at the house once you came back to the beach. We will consider changing our policy in this regard.
All the best from the beach!
