KH4004 - Paradise GUEST REVIEW

Reviewed on2020-10-03 by from Statesville, NC

We loved the rental. It was clean and well maintained. Next time we will only pack our clothes and toiletries because the home had everything we could need or wanted. The pool was smaller in our opinion then advertised but perfect for the kids and maybe we read the advertisement wrong. We will stay again at this property as it was a wonderful experience.

Hi Mrs. Barnes!
Thank you for the wonderful review of PARADISE!
I'm certain the Barnes family had yet another wonderful stay in this gorgeous Outer Banks Vacation home. We can't wait to see you again in 2021!

For basically $1,000. a day (I don't count the 2 Saturdays) I think linens should have been provided and the beds made-up. Would have brought my own linens if I'd known they weren't making the beds. It was a longer walk to the beach than I had anticipated, you are 2 houses and a highway away. Listing did not include beach chairs, umbrellas or beach cart in description so we hauled all that to NC taking up valuable car space. Even called rental place to inquire before hand and woman I spoke to said she had not seen the house and if it wasn't listed it wasn't there. Really? You couldn't go look or call the owner? Got there and plenty of chairs and a huge cart. <br/> And what is this $330 VRBO fee? For $1,000 a day it should have been absorbed by rental agency or owner. <br/> On the bright side house was lovely and well appointed. they even provided lots of paper products. Elevator was great for our elderly dog. Just felt abused by VRBO fee, linen fee and not knowing about beach cart and chairs. Also at 3:30am (every morning) a trash truck empties the dumpster at the convenience store behind the house. Very loud.

4 generations of Barnes' had a wonderful week at Paradise! We celebrated a birthday for the oldest Barnes and a retirement from the USAF for a grandson! Paradise has everything you need for the beach: games for inside and outside, plus a pool and hot tub! All the cousins had a great time making tie-dye shirts (they each chose their own design and colors). With an iron-on stencil on back that read COUSINS CREW OBX 2019, they looked great and the kids were so proud of them. They all spent many hours at the beach and weather was perfect! We are all looking forward to next year when we get together again for another wonderful week in Paradise!

We all had a wonderful time. Would definitely recommend it to others and would go back again. The location was perfect for walking to the beach. It was clean. The management company was very helpful. We were very grateful that we could have our dogs and for the elevator. The little ones enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. The RV Park was one block away. Wonderful vacation!! Loved the collection of games and definitely appreciated the washer and dryer. Kitchen was well stocked with supplies.<br/>

First stay at this house and we couldn't have been more pleased. The owner goes above and beyond any place we've stayed in the past. We enjoyed the bicycles, corn hole, horse shoes, ping pong, pool table and the heated pool. We were even surprised with a gift basket from the owner. The short walk to the beach was great, the street was quiet, the lawn was well maintained. Highly recommend this home.
Dear Sandy
Thank you for the wonderful review of PARADISE! The homeowner does and EXCELLENT job maintaining this house- he is simply unbelievable! Always adding new features and insuring everything is just perfect!
Our entire staff loves this home as much as you do!
Hope to see you again very soon.

This is our favorite beach house that includes everything you will need. This was our 4th year in this house and unless our family outgrows this home, we will continue to rent. We are not pleased with the rental agency and will only continue using them as long as we rent this house. Agency charges you for everything from fee to use a credit card to a fee for early reservation.

This was our second stay at Paradise. We love the location of the home just a two minute walk to beach access. The home also is very well appointed with plenty of seating in the common area and a large dining room table to accommodate 11 of us. We appreciate the high chair and portable crib so that we don’t have to bring that along. In addition, this home has a very well stocked kitchen with any kind of utensil or cooking item you might need. The general consensus, however, is that the home really needs a deep cleaning - dust and grime on the door jams and hardware, mildew on the shower curtain liners, etc. In addition, the grill needs desperately needs replaced. Unlike our first stay we checked it out before purchasing food and decided we didn’t want to use it. The grates are in bad shape and the started doesn’t work. Lastly we had an issue with what was originally thought to be ants but turned out to be termites on the middle floor with the bedrooms. There were a lot of them - this is not an exaggeration, and it was a little unsettling. An exterminator came the Second or third day and it took care of them for the time being but that too was a little unsettling as we had small children and a dog. We hope that these issues are all corrected so that we can enjoy another stay at Paradise.

My family and I have been coming to the Outer Banks for over 15 years and this house was by far the best house we have ever rented. The house had everything we needed and the owners even went out of their way to provide the house with the "essentials". The decor was nice, which gave it a very homey feeling, most houses we've stayed at are very basic and have a "rented" look to them. We had a few days of bad weather and this house kept all kids, young and small, entertained between all the games and movies they had to the ping pong table out by the pool, it was just awesome! The owners also had a gift basket delivered to us, as a thank you gift. It definitely shows they care about people staying in their home. This house is one we will certainly be renting again!
Dear Greg, We are delighted that you had such a great vacation at KH4004 PARADISE. Thank you for your praiseworthy review. We look forward to seeing you and your family in future. Thank you! Carolina Shores

Upon arriving, we met the owner of the house and chatted with him for a few. The addition of the ping pong table was a huge hit with our family. Great house, Great location. Keep up the good work and see you next year.

This house was more than expected! The owner definitely wants people to return! 7 adults, three children (11 mos., 15 mos., and 4 yr. old) and we never seemed to be stepping on each other. Owner thoughtful enough to supply starter items until we could get to store(kleenex, paper towels,paper plates,t.paper, etc.) Boogie boards,bicycles,coffee for Keurig...anything you could think you would want was there. She even showed up with a gift basket full of goodies for the kids and adults! We felt so much at home!! Wonderful week at a truly wonderful home! Such a nice surprise!

This is the sixth or seventh time we have stayed at Paradise and get's better everytime. The house was great and we enjoyed all the extra's in the house like the coffee's, soap's, TP and all the other extra's in the house. There was some damaged to the blinds and the elevator did not want to work sometime & the downstairs bathroom had some problems, but maintance fixed the problems. I would recommend this property. We really did not do much this year but we were out by the pool alot and just got some much need rest and enjoyed the sun. We will see you next year...
Dear Rhonda,
Thank you for making KH4004- PARADISE your second home when you're on the Outer Banks. Your continued patronage of our vacation home is sincerely appreciated. See you again next season.

We have stayed at this rental property 4 summers. We love it! The kitchen is very well stocked. There are tons of board games for rainy days. There are lots of DVDs to watch. Lots of beach chairs and boogie boards. Plenty of chairs by the pool. Very spacious and compfy. Lots more amenities that you should check it out yourself. Very close to the beach and two of our favorite places to eat. BK Shuckers and the Black Pelican!

The property was very nice and with a great location. There were some problems with electric because a breaker was clicked off but the management company quickly had it fixed. Having never been to OBX or this property it would have been nice to have someone show us around the property when we first arrived. The property management company should read the visitors log the owners have and they would know more about some of the small problems like the refrigater needs a newfilter.
Dear David,
Thank you for another outstanding review of PARADISE!

Thank you again for another great week at Paradise! This is our Fifth year at this house and it get better every year. The new shower in the master bath was really great. The new hardwood floors was nice also, and the new carpet and new bedding was nice also. Thank you for the extra chairs for the top porch, as the weather was great all week so we had alot of time to spend on the porch. The house was very well stocked with hand soaps, tissues and tp as well. My Yorkie missed the carpet in the master bedroom closet as she liked to lay in there cause she thought she had two crates to sleep in ! The house was very clean. The manager's were nice as alway's and very helpful if we were in need of anything. We look forward to seeing you in 2016 for another great week of beach fun and sun. Thank you again and we will see you in September 2016!

This home is great for a large group. We had four couples plus my grandmother and our 3 month daughter and there was plenty of space everyone. The elevator was great for my grandmother who is 98 and doesn't really do stairs. The homes is stocked with many entertainment items including cornhole boards, horseshoes, and volleyball net. They also had a bin on wheels making it easy to take items to the beach which was a very short walk and right across from the beach access. Our only real complaint was after making us wait until 4 pm on the dot to get the keys to "ensure the home was clean " (we showed up at 3:50), the cleaners ended up being at the house until almost 6 so we had to wait outside for almost 2 hours in the driveway. The home itself was great and we Would definitely stay there again.
Dear Tim,

This was the first time our entire family vacationed together. We had a great time due partly to the accomodations and location of this rental property. It was close to the beach, had a nice, flat road to bicycle (while providing 7 bikes),provided a private pool and hot tub along with a basketball goal, horseshoes and corn hole. There was plenty of space and it was perfectly designed for a family gathering.

This house was a perfect fit for our entire family. The house was very spatious and included many items that made the stay very enjoyable. Parking was very convenient for the 5 vehicles that acompanied us. The pool was fantastic. The short distance to walk to the beach was especially convenient as our oldest daughter is 7 months pregnant. We loved the bagel shop right next door and the short distance to walk to some of the local restaurants. The bedroom and bath room layout was a perfect fit for our entire group. We enjoyed playing basketball, cornhole and volleyball in the evenings. The gas grill was great for the cookouts we had. We enjoyed riding bikes and walking in the mornings. We are very much looking forward to renting this house again in 2016!

This house was perfect for our family vacation. We were with 9 ppl, 3 couples & a mom w/2 kids. All 4 groups had their own bathrooms which was really nice. Lots of room with 3 levels to spread out on. TV's on every level and in all the bedrooms. Kitchen was super stocked. Pool & hot tub was great. Very easy couple minute walk to the beach. Walking distance to Hurricane Mo's and a couple other restaurants as well. We had a maintenance issue and someone was there looking at it within 30 min of calling-on a Sunday- which we thought was very good response time. All was fixed first thing Monday morning. House was clean and very well maintained. Location was great for day trips - pretty much in the middle of everything. We went to see the wild horses on the beach in Corolla which was about 25 min north, and down to Hatteras lighthouse which was a little over an hour south. Would definitely recommend this house for your Outer Banks vacation!

Call us Spontaneous. We literally rented this house on a Thursday and showed up on a Friday asking for an early check-in. The owners and management group not only accommodated us but went out of their way to make sure everything was operational with workers showing up as we arrived to make sure the pool, hot tub, outdoor furniture and other features were in tip top shape. My family of 6 (4 teens including one friend) were extremely pleased with the home -- this was not our first beach rental. It was a bit cold to swim in the ocean or the swimming pool but with the ocean steps away we took long walks on the beach. We used the hot tub a lot and it was perfectly situated on the house with a great view. The location is ideal, central to everything on the OBX. The elevator was a huge bonus when bringing 10 bags of groceries up to the kitchen on the top floor. Can't imagine too many houses offer that convenience. Beautiful home, immaculately well maintained, open and airy with great bedrooms for the kids and a beautiful Master for my wife and I. Would rent again without hesitation.
Dear Mr. Towriss,
Thank you for your stunning review of PARADISE! We all agree with you that this home is simply fantastic. The owner pays such close attention, to every area, and is constantly improving this remarkable home.

We rented this house in mid-March, knowing it wouldn't quite be beach weather, but it didn't matter. The house was terrific and we had an amazing time. It was just me, my wife and our two daughters (2 month and 2 years), so we didn't even use some of the bedrooms. It was in a perfect location and the HUGE spacious upstairs was great for our family to relax. Highly recommend this property.
Thank you for your exceptional review of PARADISE! This home has become one of the most popular homes we represent and it's easy to see why. The homeowner is constantly making improvements and adding features all year long.

This was our fourth year and this year was better than last year. This house has lot's of room and everything to make it feel like home. The weather was a little cooler this year and we only had rain on Saturday night. The kid's enjoyed the pool and bicycle's. We alway like to set on the porch and watch the sun come up in the morning but there was not enought chair's as in other years. The elevator is great for unloading and not having to care thing's up the steps. And also for those of us that can not do the stair's. And the veiw's of the ocean is great. The house could have been a little cleaner. There was alot of sand and hair in the house. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and thank you for the hand soap's and toilet paper in the bathroom's. Everything worked find. It would be nice to have TV's in all the bedrooms. We can't want till next year too see you all again. And thank you again for a great house!

This home by far exceeded our families expectations! We've stayed in many beach homes over the years along the coast in OBX and this home had so much more. The elevator was a great help for my mom who is in a wheel chair and my aunt and uncle as well. it also came in handy for all of the grocery runs. Being pet friendly was super we could have our dog with us. It was a short walk to the beach and I already reserved for next year! Also one thing that was outstanding is the new owner had all of the little things there for you like soap dish soap toilet paper, trash bags, foil, Saran Wrap, laundry detergent etc. huge surprise there were even spices! Very homey and also there were 4 different bikes! The pool and jacuzzi were clean and we couldn't have asked for more. Last but not least working with Carolina shores was by far the BEST experience I have ever had in renting a home. They are top notch in customer service ,so nice that I felt like I was back in the 60's the way it should be. Hands down he best vacation ever!

Everything we could've asked for was in this house. From the amentities, to the view, to the convenient beach access. The first few days were very windy and no swimming was allowed on the beach so we hung out by the pool and played games and it made for some fantastic memories and we didn't even miss the beach day! The owner really goes above and beyond from every little detail in the house and we really couldn't have been happier with our stay. We definitely would recommend this house, it is very spacious [even for 5 couples and 2 dogs] so we all had our own space but the table fit us all for dinner every night and the decks were great for sipping wine for sunset.<br/><br/>Thank you!!

Positives:<br/>- location: 2 houses in from the beach, easy to walk back and forth for lunch or to use the bathrooms. lots of restaurants and activities in a short drive from the house.<br/>- size: 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 half baths and an outdoor shower made it easy for our large group to all get ready at the same time. the living room, kitchen and dining room is all an open space which allows for lots of people to gather there without it feeling cramped.<br/>- elevator: this was very convenient to unpack and pack up the cars as it goes all the way to the driveway. my elderly mother wouldn't have been able to navigate all of the stairs, so this was key to making it easy for her to get to each floor.<br/>- property management company: responsive, kind and helpful<br/><br/>Negatives:<br/>- the pool: very small and didn't seem properly cared for. it is more of a dip pool - not one you can really swim in since so small. when we arrived, it was cloudy and filled with sand. after several calls to the property management company, the owner came to have a look - he was very nice and called the pool cleaner. however, later in the day the pool cleaner came and was yelling and swearing at my elderly father and brother that he had already cleaned it and shouldn't have had to come back. it was a scary situation with the young kids in our group who were afraid of this man yelling at their grandfather and dad. by the end of the week, the pool was back to being very cloudy - not sure the right chemicals are being used as didn't smell like chlorine at all.<br/>- condition of the house: although the house had all the necessary amenities, the condition of them was sub-par. for example, the clothes dryer took running it 3 times for clothes to dry. there were many things broken from chairs, sinks that don't drain, to spindles on the deck. since the house is up for sale, I imagine they are not putting any money into it.

After spending several months searching for a house in the OBX with a seemingly impossible list of parameters - and losing a reservation at the LAST minute - we stumbled upon Barnes Too via Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals, and I'm so glad things worked out they did. Not only was CSVR able to meet ALL of our parameters, but they were patient in kind in doing so. <br/><br/>Barnes Too is a GORGEOUS house - we were all shocked that dogs were allowed in such a nice house! Not only is the house in immaculate condition, but the kitchen is incredibly well-stocked (in general, not even JUST for a rental), the living room is HUGE, the views are amazing, the hot tub is great (only wish we'd been there during the summer to see the pool!), the garage is great for loading and unloading, the elevator is SUPER convenient and there's even a pool table!!! <br/><br/>Hands down one of the best New Year's Eves any of us have ever had - we're hoping to make it a tradition at Barnes Too!

We enjoyed the house location very much. Amenities included were fabulous. I know the house was new to the market and wanted to recommend that more instructions and phone numbers be placed inside the elevator. There was a small problem with it and from inside the elevator, even though there was a phone, you were without helpful information. Also, the perception associated with an elevator is handicap access. None of the bathroom doors were wide enough to accomodate a wheelchair.

We had previously rented from a different rental company. We had chosen a house based on proximity to our favorite local restaurant as opposed to choosing a particular company. The owner of that house switched rental companies. Our fist contact with Carolina Shores was a letter imforming us of the change in management and offering a discount on our next visit. When I called, Robin let me know that the previous rental house was not available in the off-season. She suggested we try a nearby property. Barnes Too was a perfect choice. Pets allowed, near the beach, walking distance to several restaurants, and all the space we could want. We will certainly return for our next vacation.<br/>Check in/out were simple. Our questions were addressed in a professional yet friendly manner.

The house was GREAT! We really loved the house. Best vaction in a long time. There is one thing that need's to be added, that is TV's in the bedrooms. The ocean view was great and the rocking chair's was a big hit for setting on the deck. If the rain and<br/> cold front had not come in we would have loved too stay longer.
