Great value...space, views, location

A Guest from Bethesda, MD recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2017
A very spacious beach house, just steps from the beach, with all the amenities a family needs. The house was very clean when we checked in and the bundles of fresh linens stacked in the carport were more than we needed for the week. The management company was very friendly and responsive. The house could use some refreshing, but overall is a great value for the price.

Rice Family Vacation, July 2017

Ann R. from Glen Allen, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2017
Overall the rental property was good. A big plus was its proximity to the beach access and the beach itself was wide and uncrowded. A new gas grill was there and that was very helpful to us. The separate ice maker was a great feature. There are some maintenance issues that we noted and reported on our evaluation. We would definitely rent this place again if we decide to stay in Corolla again.

Excellent Location - House Has Potential

Christopher F. from Bethania, NC recommends this property
Stayed 14 days in Jun, 2017
The Bad: Unfortunately someone has to go first... We've been renting up and down the Outer Banks for 15+ years as a family. Unfortunately, we were the first tenants of this property and reserved it for two weeks in June. We arrived and checked in to find the house was not clean (at all). The realty company did send someone to clean however, we waited 4-hours for them to arrive (after a 6.5 hour drive) My 2-year old found broken glassware in the downstairs closet. We found broken glass under the house on the driveway and deck, and found multiple nail heads throughout the property (driveway, stairs, decks, etc.). We tried to clean up whenever we found something. The hot tub leaked significantly through the lower deck and onto your car parked under the house. The charcoal grill was unusable, one of the outside showers was broken. Someone had recently taken a tracked skid steer around the property to clear overgrowth.

The Good: The location is excellent and 1/2 mile from the Grocery Store, Duck Donuts, etc. Excellent wide beach and sandbar just offshore kept the water very shallow. The realty company did come through with a new grill, fixed the shower, etc. The kitchen is well equipped (could use a new coffee maker though). The house has a stand-alone ice maker and it's excellent. We didn't buy any ice the entire time we were there.

All in all, if we had been the second renters at the property we would have been much happier. I feel someone should have inspected the house (like the check-in slip indicated) and resolved these issues prior to the renting season. I was disappointed we had to be the guinea pig and spent the first few days of our vacation working through issues. At this point, I have a bad taste for Carolina Shores and would be hesitant to rent from them in the future. It seems to be a new rental for CS however, when you pay for a vacation rental you expect blatant visible issues to be corrected prior to arriving.
