I was disappointed in the rental home. The floor was sagging, the furniture was old and run down. A good afternoon of painting would do wonders for the bedroom furniture. There was a constant air vent leak that kept making a puddle in the floor we slipped and almost fell a couple of times. It was not clean, the floor had dog food and dirt on it. The chair cushions had dog hair on them. Had one frying pan and it was scratched so everything stuck. The grill and patio could use a good cleaning. We made due cause we had already paid for it and didn’t have any other choice. However I would never stay there again. Personally I feel it should be taken off the market until updated. It is not worth the money.

Great house in Outer Banks, was just what we needed for a week of exploring. We had a great stay overall. It could've been slightly cleaner upon our arrival, but wasn't too bad. The house is about 10 minutes from the main road in a gated community, so keep that in mind if you're trying to be close to the main drag - you will have to get in the car for just about anything.

Carolina Shores did their best to help us out and the location of this rental is perfect, but the home is very outdated and needs minor upgrades to bring it up to a minimum standard for families. Dirty pillows and beds, cockroaches in master bath, loose boards on deck and docks. All appliances are 20+ years old included the tube TV in the master that didn’t work.

Our "Happy Ours" getaway was the perfect early fall vacation--peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. While the house could use a little TLC, it has everything we needed and wanted. The setting is also perfect--facing south with a shaded full deck across the front that allows for relaxing outside throughout the day. We will return to this location.
Lloyd,
We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay at CH253 HAPPY OUR'S! Yes it does have the best deck for relaxing and enjoying the canal. We can't wait to see you again next year!
Thank You,

This is an okay home in a great neighborhood. The house itself need repair. The porch needs to be replaced and the furniture is outdated and either needs new covers or just replaced. The floor is also warped making one wonder if the water damage will allow you to walk on the floor without falling through. It could be such a cute place with a bit of rehabbing.<br/>

Happy Ours is what it is. A dated vacation home that is a great value. The driveway does flood in a heavy rain, the floors sag somewhat, and the appliances need to be updated. One drawback is not being able to swim in the canal. Otherwise it is well maintained. Picture getting up in the morning, checking your crab trap, doing a little fishing, going to the beach in the afternoon, kayaking the canal, sitting on the dock, deck, or lawn watching the sun go down, and having a BBQ to end the day. Does not get much better.
Dear David and Theresa,
Thank you so much for the sparkling review of HAPPY OUR'S!
We are delighted you had such an enjoyable stay in this Colingtom Harbour canal-front home!

Really loved this property. The location was awesome, the dock and yard were wonderful. There was a broken board when we arrived on the dock that CArolina Shores quickly repaired. The property was quite dirty upon our arrival, and we spent the first hour cleaning it up. But otherwise this was a very enjoyable vacation.

happy our's was a great place to stay for our first time in the Outer Banks. Price and location worked for us. It was very basic and would be great if I had a boat. It needs to have some more basic necessities like pot holders. It was just surface clean but not a big deal to us.

House is dated but clean. Has canal on your backyard and we were catching crabs every morning there. You couldn't swim there since the water was very dirty. Overall it's a good house if your main reason not to be on a beach every day, otherwise it's is a torture to drive there for 20-30 min depends the beach you wanna be. We booked home in a last minute so we didn't have choose , but we could have our dog with us and we were pleased to stay there after all .

We loved the porch, dock and back area of the house. We had to request maintenace several times for various things and they responded quickly. Some of the interior door knobs didn't latch and apparently parts are hard to get. We fixed the one on the main bath. The reason I wouldn't recommend this house is that when it rains water pools under the house where you park. For several days you have to walk through dirty water (black dirt washes out of the yard)to get in and out of cars and house. Other than that we enjoyed the house.

We had a wonderful time when we stayed in Happy Ours. The dock and the hammock with the beautiful views was the highlight. Everything in the house worked fine, and it was a nice place to stay - I couldn't find a measuring cup, so I bought one at the dollar store - but I left it there, so, problem solved. The amenities in the neighborhood were wonderful and we loved the location. The kids loved to fish, crab, and feed the ducks and seagulls. My husband loved fishing on the sound. Not a far ride to the beach and all the shopping and restaurants. The Rental was value-priced so we didn't have to break the bank to spend a week at the beach and we could do a little more shopping and eating out. Public beach access with showers, bathrooms and lifeguard station is straight across from Colington Rd. Couldn't be more perfect. We would go back! Thank you for sharing your home!

We had a wonderful time. This home is in a gated community and had an outside pool, lounge, shoreside beach area, fishing area, and playground that my kids loved. My kids are 10, 7, and 4 years in age and they all had a good time. We were very close to plenty of activities outside of the community. The only thing I did not like is you had to drive everywhere even to the pool. The pool was approx. 0.8 miles from the home.

The Collington Harbour was a nice, friendly, quiet community which we enjoyed. <br/>The house overall was older and some things need to be updated like the stove, and dishwasher. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very close to one another. The kitchen is kinda small, there isn't much room for storage. <br/>The beds where comfortable, the couches n chairs seemed new and where nice. <br/>The private dock, hammick, porch swing and back deck was my favorite. <br/>The location of this house and the distance from the sound beach and pool was deff not walking distance, you must drive and you must deff drive to the ocean. <br/>We enjoyed our stay overall at Outer Banks. <br/>

This was our 10th time renting this same property. Prior to Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals the home was managed by another company. We were NEVER completely satisfied with the service of this "other" property management company but continued to go because we loved the house in Colington Harbour. The folks at Carolina Shores coudn't be more pleasant or helpful. Our vacation was very nice and we will be going back. Carolina Shores in HIGHLY recommended by a seasoned OBX vacationer from Maryland.

The house needs updating. The beds were not very comfortable, the living room couch and chair were terrible to sit on. We noticed also that you walked uphill when you were walking toward the dining area. Also it rained hard when we got there and the driveway area near the steps flooded. We had to walk through inches of water to carry our things into the house. The deck and covered car port were very nice.

The home is settling somewhat so the floors along the dining area and kitchen are at an obvious angle, which meant to keep the refrigerator door open you had to let it rest on your back or prop a chair in front of it to get groceries inside. The porch was wonderful with plenty of outdoor furniture and a lovely view of the canal. The home was clean, but not spotless. We found a scrabble letter "o" under the hallway rug, so it had not been moved to sweep and there was $100 Monopoly money in the couch coverlet. One downfall was no outdoor shower to rinse off sand prior to entering the home. Also, the pic shows a basketball goal, which is no longer there which was a disappointment to my son. Overall though, the home is nice and I would consider staying there again.

Happy Our's is a Winner

This was our second year staying in this property. It is a very comfortable house. The air conditioning was good through some very hot weather.

Great Vacation!
