First Visit to Kill Devil Hills

Lorraine M. from Pittsburgh, PA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Sep, 2017
First week of October was a great time to visit this area. Not crowded at all, we practically had the beach to ourselves. Beach was nice, weather was beautiful. The Wright Memorial, the Aquarium, Jockey's Ridge State Park was awesome with the sand dunes, we visited the Nature Conservancy and Bodie Island Lighthouse - very nice area. Thank you for allowing pets, this was the first time we took our dogs on vacation and they loved the beach--well one out of 2 did!

Manager Response

Lorraine, Thank you so much for staying with us here at Carolina Shores! We are so pleased that our property KD1829 5 HAPPY CLAMS was the perfect fit for you and your family! We are so glad you were able to bring your fur babies with you! We will see you in 2018! Thank you Carolina Shores

Very nice

Vincent P. from Womelsdorf, PA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2017
The house inside and out was perfect for my wife and son and 2 labs. The hardwood was very nice however very slippery in socks and bare feet. The beds were comfortable as was the furniture. The outside showers were great as well as the deck. The house was very close to the beach and the location of the house was great. Everything we needed was less then 10 minutes. My wife and I did not like the indoor showers because they were very small and hard to keep the water in the shower. As a matter of fact the bathrooms were very small in general. We are medium to small people and it was very tight in the bathrooms anyone over 200 lbs will struggle to shower and use the toilet. Also check in time seemed like forever we waited till 3 to get our keys and even though they say check in is a at 4 come on why does it take 6 hours to get the keys when they want you out before 10.

Manager Response

Vincent, Thank you for the stunning review of our property KD1829 5 HAPPY CLAMS. We are so glad that this property worked out so well for your family and fur babies!

We had a wonderful time. We visited the beach every day. The only issue was all bathrooms had to be accessed by going through a bedroom. All in all a wonderful place.

Our 2017 Vacation

A Guest from Edingburg, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in May, 2017
Very pleased with location, house in good condition. Loved the porch's. Just disappointed when we arrived that rooms were switched to where the Ms Bdr shared a bathroom ? Was displeased because of how we had to accommodate with this last-minute change. Was not convenient at all ! The showers were not well equipped and inconvenient due to only being stalls with a stationary showerhead that was very high and sprayed well above our heads and shot directly at the side and sprayed water everywhere, including the floor. We ended up resorting to outdoor showers each day due to this issue. Not happy about that when being on vacation. Although the outdoor showers very nice, thankfully. Too bad they didn't notice this problem when installing. Jolly Roger's is our favorite place but the late night partying was very noisy, to say the least. Like the house, location but would not stay again if I have to take showers everyday of my vacation outside :(

Manager Response

Dear Jerry Thank you for taking the time to review 5 Happy Clams. I'm sorry the showers were not to your liking. I will be happy to discuss this with the homeowner. We are definitely please you found this oceanfront joy clean and loved the porches!

Family get-away

John N. from Rockville, MD recommends this property
Stayed 14 days in Jul, 2016
We enjoyed our time in the house. It fit our need nicely. The bathrooms are small. The property had ants which were ever present. The ocean view is obscured by the tall dune. Generally the house is nice with very spacious living areas.

Manager Response

Dear John, Thank you so much for taking the time to review 5 HAPPY CLAMS! Isn't this just a great and relaxing oceanfront vacation home? You should see the changes the owners have made for 2017! Wonderful! Please come back soon! The beach is calling for you.

Great Vacation!

Judi M. from Charlottesville, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2015
We were extremely pleased with our stay at the Happy Clams cottage. We had the most relaxing week there. The covered porch was great, kept the majority of the sun off us during the day. The cottage itself had everything we needed. The only suggestion I would have is leave a roll of paper products in the bathrooms to get us started off. Lucky we had a box of tissue. Over all the best vacation in a long time.

Dear Judi, Thank you for sharing your experience you had at 5 HAPPY CLAMS. Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals is pleased you had a great time and we hope to see you next year!

Has so much potential

A Guest from Fredericksburg, VA does not recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2015
The house has charm if you can over look how old, outdated, dark and dirty everything is. I spent the whole week thinking how much more pleasing it would be with a few trips to the thrift shop to redo and re purpose and a few coats of paint. Pets are allowed although its not pet friendly, nor is it child friendly. All in all we had a wonderful week on the beach as well as a few good laughs about the house.

Summer of 2015 - First Grown up Family Vacation

A Guest from Silver Spring, MD does not recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2015
5 Happy Clams - the over all experience was good. It gave my family a place to meet and enjoy the beach. It was easy to access the beach. The issues we experienced with this rental: the overall furniture is old, smelly, cheap and dirty. Tried to overcome smell by spraying Febreze spray, it didn’t work. There was a great dinning table, that we had several meals. (Bring your own grill, the one provided is worn out and a fire hazard, we had to get the fire extinguisher out) The homes overall condition needs repairs everywhere, and honesty some areas not safe for young children. The hand railings are coming up walking to beach, paint is peeling everywhere, and a wild cat lives in the run down building to the right of this picture you sent. The master bedroom is located in front of a bar with live music, which stops around 1 AM. (On the upside, the bar does have a great breakfast:) There is good and bad with everything in life, this home has 4 bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms, one of which you had to sit sideways on the toilet to feel like you could fit in bathroom. LOL
Well I could go on but this is enough. I had a good time, but feel that at the price I paid, I deserved a clean place, with a great grill. Thank you for asking!

Manager Response

Dear Paula, Thank you for taking the time to review 5 HAPPY CLAMS! We appreciate you taking the time to share your suggestions and comments about your stay and we will gladly review these with the homeowner. I will immediatly take a look at the grill to see its condition. I apologize for this as well as the stray cat lurking around the property.

FANTASTIC VACATION HOME

Kathleen D. from Ashburn, va recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2014
We so enjoyed to finally stay in a oceanfront home, unbelievable location, close to stores, restaurants, the house was stocked with everything we needed, the oceanfront porch veiw was blocked by the dunes but we enjoyed sitting there taking in the breeze. The walkway to the beach was great with direct access. New vacation memories were made. Thank you. Oh, a gas grill would have been nice to have on the open front porch. Property Mgmt. was very helpful with the questions I had, no problems with any electrical appliances. Flood lights out front did not work at all. Dinner at Jolly Roger was delicious, Awful Arthurs's within walking distance as always was great and also having K-Mart within walking distance was nice.

The location of the property was on the beach as advertised, which was great. Downside is the Jolly Roger restaurant across the street plays music every night until 1 AM directly outside of the master bedroom. We were lucky to rent this place at the last minute and bring my dog, however I wouldn't rent again. The bathrooms were small and outdated. The place as a whole was just ok at best. The best part is the outside shower, rear deck, and the fact it's on the beach.

First time renter!

A Guest from Chittemango, NY recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2013
This was our 1st time ever renting a vacation home. I was very happy with the quick communications with Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals, LLC. They were very helpful.

My only issues with this rental were the much too small BBQ grill for a place that will sleep 8 people, and we did NOT have access to the internet which was advertised as being available.

Also, we had no idea that there was a restaurant directly across the street which had live bands that played loudly into the wee hours of the night.

On the other hand, being on the ocean with our own walkway to the beach was fantastic! Nothing beats waking up to see the sunrise and walking just out the door with coffee in hand and toes in the sand!

5 Happy Clams

Elizabeth H. from Washington, DC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in May, 2013
We absolutely loved working with Carolina Shores and would highly recommend working with them again. The cottage is well kept, clean and the location cannot be beat. Only downside is no Wifi and 2 tube TVs with limited cable. As busy professionals needing to have access to Wifi made it a bit difficult to stay connected with work during the week if we needed to. Overall, it's a charming true OBX cottage that we loved and would go back again if some of the technology was upgraded.

Location was fantastic but rugs, furniture, corners are dirty

A Guest from Arlington, VA does not recommends this property
Stayed 14 days in Jul, 2012
It’s hard to complain much about a house right on the beach and close to everything but when the best things about the place are all outside - the deck on the beach, the back porch, and the new outside shower - it could use some improvements. The house is an old cabin - very rustic but charming with wonderful high wooden ceilings and real wood (not wood paneling) throughout. The décor seems from the early 70s - not a big deal but just dated. The kitchen, though not recently updated, was good. All the appliances worked (except for the light in the fridge – annoying). There are two pantries in the kitchen full of years-old items.
The rest of the house isn’t exactly dirty - it just looks like it is! The cleaners did the best they could with what they had to work with. There is a dust/dirt-covered fireplace cover, years of embedded dirt on the walls, in the corners, and on the wood floors, and stains in the indoor showers (no one used them because they were too dark and gross). The white couches are so old that the floral pattern is worn off on the front and the cushions are dirty and grey. The rugs are so old and disgusting that I didn’t want my kids to sit on them (we didn’t bring any pets with us).
The furniture is functional and mostly clean. The beds are comfortable and the duvets, blankets, and pillows, though old, were clean and usable.
The set up of two bedrooms is bizarre - they are connected by a bathroom but there's no door from the bathroom to the hallway.
The old outdoor shower is mildewed and dark but we used it a few times. The new shower is awesome!
One of the twin beds was missing when we arrived (Carolina Shores put in a rollaway for us), the washer didn't work on the very first load and had to be fixed, and there are no beach toys or functional umbrellas.
The kids can’t play in the sand underneath the house because there are cacti and dog poop left from previous renters – so gross!!
