Shimshaw stay

Sarah C. from Florham Park, NJ does not recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2017
The property location was wonderful. Having the beach so close was exactly what we wanted. However, many things with the property were extremely disappointing.
We stayed at the same house 2 years ago and LOVED IT. however the up keep of this home now, 2 years later, was terrible.

Clocks were working, didn't have batteries
Slider doors to the pool deck were broken and needed extreme force to open- many of our guests couldn't even access the back without help in getting the door open.
flys and ants were EVERYWHERE in the house
The screened in porch had ZERO screens.
The walkway to the beach was covered in grass- you literally had to walk through brush ON THE DECK BOARDS to get to the beach-
I mean this was ridiculous, a little landscaping and we'd be able to get to the beach without walking through trees and bushes.

Now, we are aware the property was sold and only a few weeks left were being rented but we still paid A LOT OF MONEY and it was unfortunate the house wasn't maintained.

Older property, but nice pool!

Michael N. from Valley City, OH recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2017
For the price you can't go wrong. Pool is really nice and property is ocean side, but the house could use a facelift. Very outdated and some amenities were not in the best shape. Beds uncomfortable.

The location of the house was great! Nice pool. It could use some updating and a good cleaning but for the price it was a good deal.

Dear David, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. So are so happy that you enjoyed the Pool. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Pretty nice

Mark R. from Kittanning, PA does not recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2016
Our family had a wonderful time at the house. the location couldn't be better, and the house was cute. There was good internet service and there were books and games available for guests. The maintenance of the pool and hot tub was good. However, it was obvious that the house needed some TLC. The sliding doors were bad and the mattresses were not very comfortable. There were water stains on the upstairs ceiling. I was also a bit disappointed that the only direct view of the ocean was from the upstairs bedroom. For the amount of money this place costs ($6000+), I expected a bit better. I really think it is over priced for the condition.

Hank Prevette Review

Henry P. from Mc Lean, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in May, 2016
Our family had stayed at Scrimshaw for a number of years and were extremely pleased with the accommodations. Unfortunately this year was not the same. The property wasn't prepared well for occupancy. There were outside chairs stacked the master bedroom, several lamps were misplaced and had no bulbs and the upstairs ceiling lights were burned out. The WiFi wasn't working, the kitchen stove horizontal top surface became too hot to touch (safety hazard), only 3 wine glasses were in the cupboard and the outside grill wouldn't start due to no propane in the tank and rusty operating valves. There were dead electrical outlets in the bathrooms and the lower refrigerator drawer was difficult to open due to a misplaced/misaligned lower shelf. Most of the these problems were promptly corrected by the Corolla office, but a thorough preinspection could have eliminated most of these difficulties.

Manager Response

Dear Henry Thank you for taking the time to review SCRIMSHAW. I deeply apologize for our staff not insuring the patio furniture was placed on the deck and the issues with the Wifi. I see that a brand new grill was puchased and delivered to you right away. The homeowner had us jump right on that! Sue Ann, from our office, said to say hi! She had a great time speaking with you.

Great Week At Scrimshaw

Allen W. from Mc Lean, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Sep, 2015
My family of seven tremendously enjoyed our stay in September. The house and outdoor areas were found in perfectly clean condition. The house is well-equipped and easy to enjoy. We had a problem with not having a functioning coffee maker, but the management quickly brought us a new one. There were some nail heads popping-up on the decking, but management quickly corrected this. When we found no propane in the grill, again management was there within the hour to replace it.
We love the beach and location of the house. The pool and hot tub were most enjoyable. We could not have been happier with this rental. Many thanks to management for being so responsive and kind.

Manager Response

Dear Allen, I am delighted you enjoyed the home of my favorite homeowner! Isn't the pool wonderful? You can't ask for a better OBX vacation home! Thank you so much and come back again next summer.

loved the house!

Sarah C. from Florham Park, NJ recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2015
We had a great time! The house was amazing in a perfect location. The pool, hot tub and walk to the beach made it so you didn't even have to leave the house!

we did have a problem with ants, and when we called the property management they told that someone would be out to treat the ants. we had to call every day, with the explanation that they were coming THAT day. we gave up calling them on the 5th day because we got sick of wasting our time hearing lies. we just had to kill ants constantly.

other than the lack of property management we had a great time and absolutely loved the house. you can tell the homeowners really care!!

Don't forget the toilet paper

David M. from Port Matilda, PA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Sep, 2014
Overall it was a nice place to stay. However, after driving for 8 hours our first stop in the house was to be the bathroom. The owners did not leave any toilet paper some the ladies were very unhappy and it made the rest of us feel very unwelcome. The was as advertised as far as a great location and pretty much private beach access. The house was clean and the only problem we encountered was broken boards and exposed nails on the wooden walk way to the beach. A maintenance person showed up to explain that it was going to be replaced and never returned despite saying he would remove/fix the exposed nails. Some of us indicated they would return but I would look for another place if we do come back to OBX.

Scrimshaw Review

A Guest from Arnold, MD does not recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2014
It was overall a ver nice vacation and we enjoyed it very much! We think that the furniture is a little old and worn. The bathrooms need new rugs (they smelled). And the property should definately have an ice maker. Also, the grill didn't work properly and needed to be cleaned. But the location is great and the pool and hot-tub were fantastic. But for the money, the things mentioned above should be fixed.

As far as location goes, you can't beat this place. The outdoor area is wonderful. The home itself, carpeting and furnishings are dated and in need of attention. However the kitchen is well stocked with anything you may need. Paula and Ryan were amazing and provided outstanding customer service.

Very Nice Vacation

Margaret N. from BRONX, NY recommends this property
Stayed 14 days in Aug, 2013
Loved the deck and the pool and the house was very nice. The walkway to the beach should be fixed up a bit. The weeds on the walkway are a bit dangerous for walking and the steps some should be reinforced. Also the stairway on the side of the house, some of the steps should also be reinforced.

Best place we have stayed in the Outer Banks

Thomas N. from Durham, NC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2013
This was our third summer vacationing in Corolla -- and this was by far our best experience. The house is on a perfect part of the beach, the pool and deck are incredible and the house is well equipped in all dimensions -- kitchen, game closet, pool and beach toys, DVDs, etc. Unlike so many of the beach houses, it is not huge and not designed for armies of people -- just perfect for families of 6-8. We'll be back next year.

As always, very satisfying. Especially appreciate the pool. Good for kids and toddlers. Only problem was no land-line telephone and rear sliding door was difficult
to open and close. Large couch was a bit worn. Also, need instruction on operation of DVD. Wasn't able to watch available movies. Otherwise good experience. Appreciate 10% military discount.

A Guest from Franklin, PA does not recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2012
The layout of this house is fantastic. We LOVED having the pool just outside the main living area. The deck was gorgeous, pool and hot tub well-maintained, outdoor shower very clean. The house, however needed a GOOD spring cleaning! There seems to have been water damage at some point as the ceilings and kitchen cabinets showed signs of this. Appliances were all fine. Also, lots of flies, some spiders and a cricket! Pest control maintenance would help I think!

Superb!

Maryann P. from Denver, CO recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2012
This was our second year staying at Scrimshaw. We love it.
We love the location on the beach. It is great. The beach area nearest to Scrimshaw (below the private overlook) is uncrowded compared to both directions up and down the beach.
We love the pool. My family spent much time in the pool after and before the beach. The pool and the house was very clean and very well equipped.
Only one of the three burners on the gas grill was working. I called the rental company and the next day, a new gas grill was delivered. We, after past experiences with other owners and rental companies, were pleased with the excellent and prompt response.
We were very satisfied with our experience with Carolina Shores. They were professional and very friendly to work with. Note the prompt attention with gas grill issue.
This was our fifth summer visit with our family to OBX. The last two we have stayed at Scrimshaw. Hopefully, we can stay there on our next visit.
