You can’t beat the location and price for this rental! The house is much bigger than it looks in pictures, which was quite lucky for us because it rained the majority of our week there. This house is fully stocked with almost anything you need. My only complaint is that it really needs a good dusting and there were lots of dead bugs on window sills. The porch facing the beach was amazing to watch the sunrise and we saw dolphins the 2 nice days we had! Overall would recommend.

My family had a wonderful time at the Molasses Reef. The house has a ton of personality and was very comfortable. The location to the beach cannot be beat and the back deck is a perfect place to relax and watch the ocean. The rooms are bigger than they appear in the pictures and the kitchen was very well stocked with pots, pans, and many other items for those who like to cook. We will definitely be returning.

You can not ask for a better location - this home is just steps from the beautiful beach and pelicans and dolphins greeted us each day. We enjoyed OBX - wild horses in Corolla, Duck Donuts, lighthouse visit, fishing, and delicious seafood. The kitchen is well furnished but home needs some upgrades - the bathroom shower was VERY small and the bedrooms were not especially clean or comfortable.

We actually love this little house. It's surprisingly roomy despite the small size & access to the beach can't be beat. We have stayed here 2 yrs in a row & would probably stay again. Unfortunately, the cleanliness upon arrival leaves a lot to be desired. Aside from a quick vacuum & wipe down of the kitchen & bathrooms, it's dirty. Never been dusted so there are clumps of dust on the top of doors, windowsills, baseboards. Not great if you have asthma. The dishes are never clean, the coffee maker has never been cleaned and has mold in the water well. We usually have to come in & clean ourselves before we can use anything. The front door lock always seems to have problems (the deadbolt wouldn't even lock during our stay). These are easy to address things that never seem to be addressed (gave a similar review last year). Also, a super frustrating thing that should be corrected is the drop off of linens for the NEXT week's rental. They drop this heavy bin right in front of the front door 3 days before our trip is over. We are expected to move it somewhere or we can't even get out of the house. Super annoying and unnecessary. They should have a designated spot to put it that doesn't inconvenience those of us still in the house. So all in all, a great house but the management company could address these issues easily but never seem to read our reviews??
Dear Steffani
Thank you so much for taking the time to review MOLASSES REEF. I certainly apologize for the housekeeping concerns you mentioned and have already discussed this in detail with the housekeeping manager. This is simply unacceptable. The linen company should know better than to drop their product off 3 days early! And to block you in the house! Not good. I will be calling them this afternoon.
I am delighted on how much you love MOLASSES REEF- It is certainly a perfect oceanfront vacation home. It's my personal favorite!
Thank you again. We will definitely do better on your next visit!

As longtime OBX vacationers, we have stayed in dozens of homes up and down the coast. We always opt for oceanfront and we prefer the classic single-family beach boxes. Most have a "well-worn" character with lots of wood paneling and dated furniture. Not so with Molasses Reef! the living space and kitchen are painted bright white with colorful, quirky art everywhere. A huge flatscreen, great wifi and nice, comfy furniture made our indoor time very enjoyable. Beds are smallish but comfy and the two bathrooms were clean. What more can you want? The real appeal is the "right on the beach" location on a quiet stretch of Kitty Hawk about a 30-minute beach walk north of Avalon Pier. We loved the covered back deck to get out of the sun complete with lots of seating and a hammock. The quiet side deck was a nice bonus. This place is perfect for a family group of 4-6 people. We'd be happy to book here again.
Dear Brian

Overall a great experience and great location. We would definitely rent it again. A few minor items: would be nice if there were a few more of the higher, sturdier chairs. The low plastic chairs are not too accommodating for bigger guys. The front and back storm doors slam really hard and could catch someone's foot. Otherwise, no issues.
Dear Anne

It waas wonderful to spend the week with children and young grandchildren (who had never seen the ocean before). My husband has some mobility issues and it was difficult to find a cottage on the beach that didn't have a thousand steps. It was easy for him to walk out on the porch and feel the ocean breezes and enjoy the sunshine. This is what a beach cottage should look like. Thanks for a great week.

Loved our stay! This was the most comfortable house I think we have stayed in. We LOVED THE location. This is the classic beach box house!We spent most of our time on the beach and on the back porch. It was perfect especially for the grandparents that came. We have stayed in larger and fancier houses but we wanted to be on the beach and we loved laying in our bed seeing the ocean and hearing it.

The best feature of this cottage on the beach is the fact that you could step out onto a wide beach with ease from the back porch. Additionally, the porch was low enough that while sitting you still have a magnificent view of the sand and surf which was great for monitoring children's play. The built in picnic table and hammock were great features as well.<br/>Inside was clean and met our needs. The WiFi and cable brought a small simple cottage into modern day. The bedrooms were average size, but the top bunk did not have a safety rail and therefore we did not use it. <br/>It is hard to get ON the beach on a budget... Molasses Reef made it possible!

This was the first time staying at the Molasses Reef. It was a great stay. The house was clean, roomy and just right for our family of 8. The back deck was a God sent, after a long day on the beach the late afternoon on the swing was the perfect end to a day. No rain so we had no chance to shop, just enjoyed the nice beach with only a few steps back to the house. It is a must stay for this one, and we plan to be back. It was hard to close that door when it was time to leave.

We've been coming here for the last 7 years and we love it. It's very secluded with only 3 other houses on this part of the beach. John's restaurant is in walking distance(the best). We will always return. Peace Out and enjoy

Walk out the back door and the ocean is just a 100 feet to fun in the waves. We saw dolphins. We had a sea turtle come up and nest on the beach in front of the cottage next door the night before we had to leave. I would love to here.
Nancy,

It's always nice to spend a relaxing day at the beach and see the marine life come right to your feet!
You'll have to be sure to let Carolina Shores plan your next vacation!

We fell in love with the house as soon as we opened the door. The kids immediately threw there bathing suits on and hit the beach. I loved that I could see them from the back door and bedroom window so they could play and I could unpack. The only people we encountered on the beach were the neighbors. Did not feel like we had to compete for beach space. Very close to all the activities and restaurants that we wanted to visit. Definately going to stay there again! Living room furniture could use and update, but overall it was a perfect week. Even with the rain!
Charity,
Its amazing that you can be just steps away from best place in the world, isn't it!? We couldn't love it more!
Be sure to let Carolina Shores plan your next vacation as well!

I have already reviewed this property last year...I'm the only review there so another one from me probably wouldn't be good. As in the past, though, we had a wonderful time in this old but cute cottage, especially since it's right on the beach
Sally,

My family are beach people,we will be on the beach all day every day as long as the weather is good, so it is great to be only steps away from the beach without having to walk over the dunes. The kids can come in and out as they please and you can take quick breaks to get out of the sun. Is is also nice to sit on the deck and watch the ocean in the morning or early evening.
Sinde,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at MOLASSES REEF!
Being steps away from the beach couldn't get much better, it's a lovely area to enjoy all family activities and to have the best Outer Banks vacation!
