The house was in a good location and the beach was very nice, but the amount of stairs to get to the beach were very hard for my elderly mother to maneuver . This access needs to be clearly indicated in rental description.

We have rented As Time Goes By for 15 of the last 17 years and love it. It is the perfect location to the beach as we are in our 70's and don't do steps easily. The house is so comfortable for us with a big kitchen, nice oceanfront master bedroom and 3 full bathrooms. It is also near the restaurants that we love and we love taking a morning walk on the sidewalk.

The house is large and welcoming. Nicely decorated and fully stocked with just about everything you'll need to enjoy the beach which is about 20 seconds away. Easy to slip from the beach to the house and back again in moments. That's a super nice feature. We had a great time!

We had a wonderful week at this property. The location and beach right in the backyard can’t be beat. The living and dining area were spacious for us all to hang out and the bedrooms were large. <br/>Suggest making check in through email. We had to drive 15 min each way to get the code for the door that could have been emailed to us. Hot tub cover needs replacing. It left pieces of it in the water. We loved having the hot tub though. <br/>Great house, great location to everything.
Dear Joan
Thank you for taking the time to review AS TIME GOES BY. When you ask for oceanfront, this is the place! Did you have a chance to enjoy the Japanese Soaking tub?
The owner is having the hot tub cover replaced in a few weeks- for some reason deliveries are taking forever!
See you next year!

We brought our 6 kids here for Spring Break for the week and it was their favorite place by far of all the vacations we have taken. The access to the beach being steps away, and the hot tub were a huge hit. There were just enough bathrooms and bedrooms/beds for us and space at the table to eat together. Our kids enjoyed the skin boards available. We also loved how close we were to town yet the house feels tucked away. <br/>We visited Corolla and saw wild horses which was an amazing experience. The Wright Brother's Memorial is very close too. This was a wonderful place to spend a family vacation and we are grateful for the experience!<br/><br/>The Johnson Family
Dear Erin
Well, you stayed at my favorite vacation TIME GOES BY. I knew you would love it! How about that Japanese soaking tub?
I wish I could live there forever.
Thank you so much for staying with us. See you soon!

We have been renting As Time Goes By for many, many years and have never been disappointed. The location is perfect (direct access to beach) and only Jockey’s Ridge behind the house (no houses). The beach is almost empty and very clean. The house is lovely and comfortable. The only drawback was a lack of basic supplies such as hangers and kitchen supplies such as dish towels. <br/>These deficiencies are almost too minor to mention, really. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in OBX.

Beautiful home. Great beach access. Furnishing & décor are top of the line. Warm, cozy, relaxing yet still very upscale. Felt like someone's home not a sterile impersonal vibe like many rentals. Best equipped kitchen we have ever seen. Great floor plan. Loved screened porch and deck of master.<br/>Office staff is GREAT; very professional and very responsive. And nice!

Great property but better communication with guests needed.

Love the house and location. Only issue was with linen service. A complete waste of money. 1st no one told me that they would be in a box, left outside in the rain, for us to put on the bed. I called in the am only to be told it was in a black box outside. Towels were wet and sheets soaked. The replacements had stains on them. 90% of the towels we didn't even open. We also called about a non working lock to the deck. the maintenance guy didn't bother to fix as we asked they only forced the lock closed. We were unable to go on the 2nd floor deck the entire trip. wont pay again for that. Your office needs to be trained on full disclosure when booking so people know important things like where there sheets will be when we arrive! expectation was they would be on the bed. Poor guest experience which I will share. We also were not told which side we were on A or B. so at 2am when we got there im walking around with a flash light trying doors. The sign is all faded that says as time goes by.

Will be back!

The package was ready in the drop box. The information was clear. The rental was very clean and in great shape. There was an issue with the washing machine. However, it was as simple as calling the the vacation rental company and letting them know. Within a couple of days, the washer was replaced. In the meantime, they did provide extra linens and towels. Overall a great rental agency and a great home. Would stay there again.
Jamie,
We are so glad to hear that our after hours check-in process is very easy and clear to understand. Also that our maintenance and housekeeping departments did everything they could do to make your stay go as smooth as possible with the washer issue. It was such a delight to have you and your family stay with us at AS TIME GOES BY. We hope to see you again next year!
Thank You,
Your Carolina Shore Family.

This is first time renting this home. Great location to beach, activities, restaurants and shops. Very clean home, lots of space. Great time to rent, beaches not busy. There were issues the first day,(Sun) main floor tv did not work, main floor front bedroom outside door lock broke, did not lock, No landline, no answering machine so when tech Ryan (great) wanted to use landline could not find it. There was 1 main issue that should of been fixed before our stay, propane stove had a broken igniter switch, found after first night when we heard constant clicking downstairs. We were explained that this could of been a very serious situation and that propane should not be used in beach homes. Part was not available for stove so we were told to turn off breaker when stove not in use and turn on when cooking. A concern ever time we switched on breaker. The tv had a bad cable box, had to wait until Tuesday for new one. Suggestion, make back deck bigger, do away with back steps, trim front walkway to expose sidewalk. Clothesline.
Linda,
We are delighted to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay at N3833 AS TIME GOES BY! We are sorry that you ran into some issue during your first night, we hope everything got resolved for you. Also Thank you for your suggestions we will relay those to the homeowner! We hope to see you and your family next year!

WE HAVE RENTED THIS HOUSE FOR THE LAST 11 OR 12 YEARS AND WE LOVE IT. I HAVE HEALTH ISSUES AND I CAN MANAGE THE STEPS IN THE HOUSE, UP TO THE HOUSE AND THE WALK TO THE BEACH. THE HOUSE IS LOCATED IN THE AREA THAT WE LIKE TO DO THINGS AND CLOSE TO THE RESTAURANTS WE IKE TO EAT AT WHILE THERE. HOWEVER.....WE ARRIVED ON SEPTEMBER 9TH THIS YEAR AND WERE EVACUATED THE NEXT DAY FOR HURRICANE FLORENCE. WE ARE HOPING THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO THE HOUSE AS WE WOULD LIKE TO STAY THERE AGAIN NEXT YEAR. WE HOPE THAT THE ISLAND HAD A MINIMUM OF DAMGAGE AND THE PEOPLE THERE ARE ALL OK. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT YEAR ,AT THIS HOUSE.

The location is great and the house is amply furnished. However, the outside needs a maintenance overhaul. No landscaping, loose bannister to the beach and on the deck, sand traps on the deck, etc. <br/>Would not recommend property until some outside maintenance occurs.

This is a great house for a week at the beach. Well laid out with two masters upstairs and two more bedrooms downstairs, with two soaking tubs (plus the outdoor hot tub) and a nice sized living room and kitchen. This house doesn't have a ton of steps to get into it, or to get over the dune to the beach, so it's perfect for someone who may have trouble with stairs. It was incredibly close to the beach, so my older kids could run back and forth to get a snack or toys while we stayed on the beach. It is walking distance to Jockey's Ridge, which was great for evening shopping, entertainment, and ice cream. The house has had some very nice updates, everything worked well and was well maintained. It's hard to find an oceanfront house to rent for a smaller family (so many of them are huge now) and this was perfect for our extended family of 6!

Lovely home, wonderful location,

This is a fantastic, sophisticated house that exceeded our expectations. One of the cleanest homes we've stayed in and we have stayed in a lot of properties in the area. It is a short walk to Kitty Hawk kites and practically across the street from Jockey's Ridge.. The layout is great, with 2 master suites on the top floor and then 2 bedrooms on the main floor. It is attached to another condo next door but felt private and we didn't have any issues with that. The slice of beach is far enough down away from the public beach access that you feel like you have the ocean all to yourself. It's quiet and beautiful. There were a few things that needed attention (the microwave broke and sliding glass door was stuck) and the management company had people on it in less than 24 hrs, they were responsive and professional. The kitchen is well stocked and everything is organized. The appliances and the counter-tops are definitely a bit older but clean and no problems. We have 4 kids and appreciated all the buckets, boogie boards and sand toys that were available for kids to play with. Oh! And the hot tub! I loved that it was recessed into the deck, nice touch. The house has some games and some great puzzles for rainy days and lots of really nice artwork. We look forward to staying here again!

It's a smaller house but it was just perfect for us. The location was great. The Ocean view is from upstairs, the living room doesn't really have a view it's blocked by the dunes. Was very clean upon arrival. I had asked for extra cleaning due to my daughter having severe allergies so I don't know if we got extra cleaning because I asked or it's usually this cleaned by the rental company. <br/>If so, I will always rent from this rental company. So many homes we've rented from other companies we've had to clean before we could relax, because it just wasn't a good job, this we really didn't have to. Needs some updating. The kitchen had everything we needed except could use new counters. Some of the mattresses could be replaced and the carpet. It would be neat to extend the deck instead of those steps and have some more outdoor seating & umbrellas. We didn't use the hot tub because it's right in those dune grasses & we got bit alive just being out on the porch. I think those grasses attract bugs and the charcoal grill is not really usable because it's in the dune grass. It would be nice to have a real grill and it would be nice to have a clothesline to hang up towels and things in the covered porch. Other than those minor things, we would rent the house again.

Comfortable and attractive home on the ocean. Soaking tub in 1 master BR and whirlpool tub in the other master. Loved that we could just walk across the street to Jockey's Ridge SP. Used the YMCA several times and found this to be a definite plus, especially in the winter. Had a great meal at Tortugas Lie. Very clean upon arrival. It would be so nice for the owners if all guests treated the home as if it were their own. I was disappointed to find burn marks on the countertops, probably because someone was not careful. I highly recommend this property. I have rented from other realtors in OB where linens and towels are included. We brought our own rather than renting them.
Dear Leslie
Thank you for staying with Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals once again! It was a delight welcoming you and your family.
All of us look forward to seeing you again in 2017.

Over all it was a good experience. The house has beautiful rooms with a great view. We only had two concerns. First, we chose this house over two others because of the hot tub. We had our 80-year-old parents with us and they looked forward to it. We couldn't get the tub to run for more than five minutes. Some of our members missed out on family outings (more than once) waiting for the maintenance guy. Turns out the hot tub hasn't worked for the past four years. If they aren't going to replace it, the owners need to remove the pics and any reference in the descriptions. Second, the back steps although beautiful were not really conducive to the elderly and the under 3 age group. We worried constantly someone was going to roll down. We were very vigilant after my father rolled down once. Mentioned wanting some compensation for the lack of hot tub at check out, but haven't heard anything yet.
Daer David,
Thank you so much for taking the time to review AS TIME GOES BY!
I must correct you. The hot tub has been in operation for well over the last 4 years. In fact I know personally it has been operating for over 8 years. We do apologize for the wait while the vendor replaced a broken part. Hot tub safety is our number one concern- children, the elderly and those with heart conditions are strongly advised not to use them.
I am certain you found this lovely home breath-taking as I do! Isn't it just beautiful? Definitely one of my favorites!
All of us look forward to seeing you again real soon!

We had a fantastic time staying in As Time Goes By. The house was clean and very comfortable. The kitchen had all the appliances we needed and plenty of dishes/silverware/cooking items. We loved being able to see the the many local sites (the wild horse tour was a big hit) and enjoyed all kinds of wonderful seafood dinners. Hot tub under the stars...beach during the could not have been more perfect for us. I would recommend this house and have signed up for next year already!
Dear Charlotte,
All of us at Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals want to thank you for your stunning review of AS TIME GOES BY!
This is one of our favorite vacation homes as well- especially the kitchen! The hot tub is also right up there as well!
We can't wait until your next visit to the Outer Banks. See you soon.

This rental is just steps away from the beach and ocean and it was wonderful. In terms of the rental, it is dated but we were aware of that from the photos. The home was clean and it was very spacious. The hot tub wasn't operational which we were disappointed about. We did call for service but the technician wasn't able to fix it. The location in Nags Head was great for us because we were able to drive within a few minutes to restaurants, stores and sightseeing spots.
Thank you Susan for your kind words about N3833 AS TIME GOES BY, we love the property as well! The beach views are amazing and the area is spectacular when it comes to the local activities and attractions! We are happy to hear that you've enjoyed your stay with us at Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals! We hope to see you again soon.

Great floor plan in this spacious 4 BR beachfront home. Nice extras like window bench seating, two master bedrooms, an outdoor hot tub and a GREAT private seating/lounging area off the dunes towards the beach. Beautiful sandy beach and ocean bottom for wading, swimming or other watersports. Appliances could use some maintenance/updating and the interior and exterior is showing some wear and tear. Doesn't distract at all from the experience, though. 10am checkout is really tough the last day - noon would be much better. Bottom line - our group of six would come back and stay again.
Thanks Wayne! We are happy to hear that you and your family had a wonderful time at N3833 AS TIME GOES BY! The spacious beaches and privacy is all you need for a perfect Outer Banks vacation! We appreciate your comments regarding the homes interior/exterior and we will be sure to relay them to the homeowner for future consideration. We hope you choose Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals for your next vacation!

After 4 years, staying at the same property we continue to bask in the sun and love the location! A couple small issues this year, but the management team reacted immediately and arranged for "plumber" to come and address lack of water pressure in the kitchen! THANK YOU for the attention. One issue that we found, but hadn't reported was "mouse dropppings" in the whirlpool tub in the front master suite. That was odd... but didn't dampen anyones vacation experience. Couple in that room chose not to use the tub! Otherwise, as ususal a tremendous experience for us all!
Thanks Jeffrey for your kind words! All of us here at Carolina Shores work hard to ensure you have a wonderful vacation year after year! We will be sure to check-in on the mouse droppings you had found to be sure there are no future encounters. This is a fantastic OCEANFRONT property that you can continue to make your home away from home!

The property was clean and in very good condition. Our property management contact (Paula) was EXCELLENT. She is Excellent to work with and she visited the property prior to our visit to make certain the property was clean and ready for our arrival. The hot tub was not working upon arrival due to a defective part identified the day prior to our arrival. The part was expedited and installed the day after Thanksgiving. A representative from the service company responsible for maintaining the hot tub personally visited to apologize for the delay in having the hot tub operational. <br/>The property is on the beach but unfortunately the living, dining and kitchen area is on the first level which is below the dune minimizing a view of the ocean. The master bedroom has a large window to view the ocean.<br/>Due to past experiences in Nags Head and Sand Bridge, VA, our primary requirement outside of accommodations for eight was a Clean Well-Maintained property. This property certainly met that requirement. I certainly would not hesitate to rent from Carolina Shores (and Paula in particular) in the future.
That's wonderful Dave! We couldn't express how happy we are that you had a wonderful vacation with Carolina Shores! We also believe that our representatives are an asset to our company in order to guarantee our guests have a great time! The property is definitely loved by many and has become known to be a home away from home while visiting the Outer Banks! We hope to see you again!

We have rented this property for 19 consecutive years so, obviously, we love this house and its location. It is one of the few houses that have no houses behind it and have gorgeous views of the ocean and Jockeys Ridge. As a result, the wide beach is never crowded. It is always clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. If there are minor repairs to be made, they are not ones that detract from our enjoyment and if major, they are always repaired promptly. We hope to come back for many years to come with our "future" grandchildren.
AS TIME GOES BY is a fantastic home to choose while on vacation in the Outer Banks! It's always nice to know that there are guests who share the experience with their children and grandchildren! The Outer Banks is a perfect area for friends and family to come together for a week of relaxation! We will be sure to pass along the wonderful compliments to our Housekeeping Department so they know that you had a great time as well! We hope to see you soon!

This is our second year staying in As Time Goes By, in Nags Head NC. A 4 BR house, with a very nice clean hot tub on the deck.. very clean, nice appliances, a TV in every bedroom, a large TV in the Master King and Living room. Very quiet beach between Jeanette's Pier and Nags Head pier, few people on the beach daily. Right across from Jockey's Ridge and Kitty Hawk Kites, a great seafood market a couple blocks away too ! You can't go wrong with this place, it is superior to any other place we have stayed so far !!
Hi Benjamin and Beverly!

The Nags Head area is an amazing location for all sorts of family friendly activities and its great that you were able to visit a lot of the local favorites! AS TIME GOES BY is such a spectacular OCEANFRONT home, it was a great pick for your trip to the Outer Banks!

This house is great! It's in a great location and you just pop out the back door and there's the ocean!<br/>There's lots of comfortable places to sit in the house, a nice wood burning fireplace, a well stocked kitchen and the bedrooms are wonderful. The master bed with a king is to DIE for! The windows in that room go all of the way up to the ceiling and overlook the ocean. The room has a private soaking tub, walk in shower, large double vanity and seperate toilet room. The closets are enourmous and the over size of the room is VERY roomy. There are nice places to sit and relax in the room and watch the ocean.<br/>The other master suite on the second floor, the queen is also a wonderful room with a HUGE garden jetted tub, huge double vanity, seperate toilet room, walk in shower, enourmous closet spaces, love seat, additional comfortable seating. The only complaint about this room is the bed. It's as hard a rock!!!<br/><br/>The bedrooms downstairs are roomy and comfortable as well. There's one bathroom for the two rooms downstairs and it's well decorated and even has a little stool in it for the little folks!<br/><br/>This house is very modern, comfortable and nicely decorated. There is now wireless internet service and there's a wonderful hot-tub in the back yard and a metal charcoal grill. This house has everything you want and more! We'll more than likely be coming back to this one in the future.<br/><br/>Also, the staff of Carolina Shores could not be more helpful!!!<br/><br/>A note to renters: the house doesn't have keys, but a keycode. Make sure you punch in the # sign before the number code in order to get in!!!!
Virginia,
We are ecstatic that you had such an amazing time at AS TIME GOES BY! There are so many wonderful amenities in the home, it's hard to pinpoint all of the favorites, being steps away from the beach is on the top of our list!
