“Making Memories”
Reviewed May 27, 2017 for a stay in September 2016

My family and friends were very pleased with this gorgeous home located on the sound with a magnificent view and a close walk to the beach.
There is a private dock with its own little private beach so bring your water toys to play.
Very nice pool to just be able to relax and hang out at home and showers available outside if you get all Sandy hanging out on the beach.
Lots of things to keep the kids busy game room in the garage and large media room downstairs to watch movies and play games.
Nice large upper deck with gas grill and hot tub.
We enjoyed watching the sun rise and set from the deck making memories that will last a lifetime.
The kitchen was fully equipped with anything and everything you could think of and more.
There were 2 ice machines for all your family and party needs.
The house was big enough that if you needed to get away from everyone you had no problem finding a quite little space to hideaway from everyone.
We would definitely love to stay in this house the next time we decide to vacation in Duck, NC.

The location and view are excellent. The house is beautiful and comfortable however be warned that the pictures are misrepresenting. The pool in very worn and needs renovation. When we checked-in the pool water was cloudy green. The pool service was responsive but we lost 3 days of use waiting for it to clear up. Then when it did clear we could see large brown rock-like deposits on the bottom and wear and algae on the sides of the pool. The dock is missing the side pieces shown in the photos. The outside showers are worn and covered with algae (we didn't use them). Also, in my opinion, the housekeeping in under par. The front entry was dirty and covered with dead bugs. The garage/game room was dirty and disorganized as was the pool area. Some of the bedroom carpets had spots and stains. A large web on the ceiling in the living room was full of dead bugs and dust and dead bugs in one corner of the living room. There were multiple dead or missing lightbulbs in almost every room. We had to walk our bags up flights of steps due to no light in the elevator when we arrived. You had to close the door to operate it and when you did it was too pitch dark to find the controls. We eventually were able to replace the light by taking a bulb out of a lamp in the living room. I don't know if all this was a fluke but I wouldn't take a chance of renting this home again.

We are very sorry for your disappointing stay this year. We know that you had the issues with the pool and elevator light. Unfortunately for the outside issues, it is very difficult to keep up with the cobwebs, spiders and algae with the salt air. It does get worse throughout the season and we are sorry for that. If you decide to come back to Elan, please contact jennie@elanvacations.com and she will take care of making sure your next house doesn't have these issues. We would also like to give you a 5% discount for another home in 2015. We do hope that you come back again to Elan.
