“Best View in Southern Shores”

Stayed at the Klein Cottage with a group of 14 extended family members ranging in age from 16-68. Everyone loved this house and location on the beach. The house isn't elegant, it is a warm cozy place to gather with all the amenities you will need. The great room/kitchen area is great and open to each other so some people can be sitting and reading, some cooking and some playing games on the large table or island and all be together. The two masters on the top floor were very large. Downstairs had four bedrooms and two baths. There is another living area on this floor but we never used it. There was another large table (not really a game table as described) and a small table that we used to put towels on etc but again didn't spend any time downstairs other than to sleep. The best part of this house is the proximity to the beach and the porch. Porch wraps around three sides of the house. Some area is covered, which was nice on a rainy day or if you had enough sun. There is a picnic table and a ton of chairs provided. The older ones of our group sat on the porch looking out at the ocean in the rocking chairs most of the week. We started and ended our days on the porch as well. The lower level has a short boardwalk to the beach and the beach is quite large here. It was so nice to be able to just walk up the boardwalk to get to the house! Be sure to bring everything with you. The starter pack was very small hotel type soap, one load of dishwasher detergent, and a roll of paper towels. There was no dish soap and you each get a washcloth and bath towel. No dish cloths or hand towels. Wish we had taken more towels as we had to wash a lot. We used the roll away beds and when we went to bed the first night we discovered there were no sheets and I had called about this prior to arrival. Called the next morning and they did bring some. Called another time later in the week with a question and got no response so was a little disappointed in that. We were celebrating my husbands 50th bday and they left a $50 gift certificate to a nice restaurant for him which was a very nice touch. The only thing I can say we didn't like was that the couches and chairs need to be replaced. Fabric is pretty worn but they were comfortable. Bed spreads etc were stained in some of the rooms and would be nice if they were updated. Location was great for those who wanted to travel to see the sights. Close to Kitty Hawk and Corolla. Nice being by the bridge also so there wasn't so far to travel in all the traffic on check in day. We will definitely be back to the Klein Cottage when we return to the outer banks.

Dear Holtzmans,

Thanks for your review of the Klein Cottage. We appreciate your feedback.

We work very hard under tight time lines to prepare the properties for our next guests, and sometimes a few things are missed from time to time, we apologize that the bed linens were not placed on the one bed properly, and that you found some sand on the floors.
Just so you are aware we do have housekeeping staff standing by on check in day until late in the evening to ensure that these types of things are taken care of right away. Our records she that we sent a cleaning inspector by your house on the day of your arrival to ensure everything was to your satisfaction. Unfortunately the person that our inspector spoke to said everything was fine or we would have rectified these items right away.

On your next visit please don't feel like you need to settle for less...give us a shout and let us know what's wrong so we can correct it right away!

All the best from the beach!
