WH973 - Mother Earth Father Sky GUEST REVIEW

Very convenient area. Good kitchen cooking supplies. Bathrooms nice, big and clean. Nice pool. Air conditioning worked great. Beds/ mattresses seemed clean. Need to dust ceiling fans and clean between wall and frig. Small ants on either side wall by entrance door . No food present, as we are careful about that. We understand ants are not unusual. Just an FYI, Need to spray area.

Our experience was good this year. We had to clean all of the windows that faced the ocean so we could see outside. They were that dirty. We had to pick up some small bits of trash from the deck area including some fly strips. The finishes in the house are old and dated. The kitchen was equipped with a lot of random pots and pans, cups, etc. We found some men walking around the property looking at the house on a Friday. When I confronted them, they identified themselves as landscapers sent to clean up the place for a wedding. We should have been called so we would know that there would be strange men walking around the house.

Older home, very clean. Ocean front with beautiful views from the 3rd flood bedrooms only. Post-hurricane had some issues with screens, sand in the pool and internet was down 5 days. Also hot tub was not heating well, maintenance was prompt and got fixed in less than a day. 1 big minus was that no private stairs to beach - there is a large sand dune - very difficult to navigate. Public beach access is only 1 house over however with easy access. Excellent support from management company.

Miss two days due to Hurricane~

Overall,we had a good time. Breaker went out so my hair dryer did too. Hot tub didn't work the 2nd day there. Maintenance man worked hard for 3+ ours cleaning out the pool and trying to get the hot tub fixed but said there was a "flow" problem with it. Hurricane didn't help.

The house is in a great location with quick access to food, shopping, etc. It's close to (but not right beside) a public beach access - which you WILL want to use because the path through the dunes us treacherous! Problem with the hot tub, but maintenance is very responsive.

Been in worse but it definitely needs lots of attention.

Upon arrival it was very dirty throughout, broken outdoor furniture, and most screens ripped. Had to fill pool 4 times during our 7 day stay. Lots of updates needed and own beach access. Going over sand dune is rough. Only stairs leading to upper level rooms is a small spiral case from inside. Next weeks linens were sent 3 days before we left.

Another great year!

The home has a great location, but needs lots of updating. A boardwalk over the dune would be nice. The property certainly needs some sprucing and attention. Pool furniture was old faded and some non-functional and the entire home needs a thorough cleaning. Location was the best thing about this home. We did not receive a mid week pool cleaning either.
Dear Kathy
I am so sorry you were not 100% satisfied with MOTHER EARTH FATHER SKY.
I will gladly share your concerns with the homeowner and pool vendor.

We are return renters and decided to stay for two weeks this year instead of one. It was just what we needed. Only minor maintenance issues which were all addressed during the stay. The house has a lot of extras others do not (pool toys, board games, books, lots of pots and pans, etc) which help reduce what we had to pack and bring with us. We always leave something behind for the next visitors to enjoy as well. (This time we left the book "Mother Earth Father Sky".) Our favorite visitor is "Casper" the crab who lives under the deck by the pool, but we also saw deer grazing along the dune and huge swarms of dragonflies. This is the perfect house for a smaller family who just want to get away from it all... with their dog(s). :)
Dear Jill, Thank you for the awesome review of our property WH973 MOTHER EARTH FATHER SKY! The homeowner works really hard to make sure the home is stocked with all the things you may need while here. They deserve all the credit for that. The deer are amazing out by the home! We will see you in 2018! Thank you! Carolina Shores

We rented the house in early spring and included our son-in-law, daughter, and granddaughter. We were the first guests of the season. While the house was ready for us, plenty tidy and clean, we were beset with numerous visits by the owner and repair guys for various things. That was a bit frustrating.<br/>Presuming all those items got taken care of for later season renters, I think you'll find the house a comfortable value. <br/>The kitchen is the focal point of the first floor and is more confined in space than pictured. Not a lot of storage for food stuffs, though, its fantastically stocked for cookware and such. <br/>We needed our own baby gates to ensure our two-year-old didn't try for the winding stairs or loft stairs, but we planned ahead for that. <br/>Two master suites upstairs were nice. <br/>We made good use of the jacuzzi and grill. It was too cool and early in the season to use the pool.<br/>The house sits right on the dune line. The good news: the dune is in excellent health (although, you'd be a better steward to walk down one house and hit the beach using the boardwalk rather than the path on the dune attached to the house). The bad news: the dune is high enough, that from the first floor, you can't see the ocean. In fact, its a bit a stretch from the upstairs, too. But, you can hear it!<br/>We appreciated the Friday to Friday rental and our dog was part of the week and we were grateful for that.
Dear Amy
Sounds like you had a great time at MOTHER EARTH FATHER SKY!
We do apologize for it taking to the last minute to get everything ready for your stay. I will share your concern with the homeowner.
I'm delighted you found the home clean and welcoming and we would love to see you again in the future.

MEFS is exactly the kind of place we'd been looking for. Being a smaller family with a smaller budget and a dog makes it challenging to find a house that is oceanfront. This house is quirky and "cozy", and we loved it. Perhaps the best aspect is how much "stuff" has been provided and/or left behind. We could have packed 1/3 as much (pans, blankets, hand soap, games, etc). Can't wait to go back!

Another wonderful year!

As I said last year, it may not be the fanciest house on the beach, but it is a great little house with an excellent location! It needs a couple of updates but nothing that would make me stay away. The only thing I really wish it had was a walkway over the dune but the boardwalk is one house over so it was not bad - especially since we used a service to set up umbrellas and chairs each day. I am going back next year!
Dear Rebecca,
We are so happy you had a amazing vacation at MOTHER EARTH FATHER SKY!
This is our most popular oceanfront vacation home and the brand new pool makes it that much more fun!
I just wish you could meet the homeowner, she is so much fun and really work so hard maintaining this vacation jewel.
We'll see you next summer!

Overall pretty good but I never saw the wind blow so hard for so many days. It even blew out a couple screen panels which we replaced but maybe blew out again. It had a pretty good floor plan but the house needs some updating and could use a walkway to the beach instead of a dune path which is too hard for young kids and elderly folks. The pool and hot tub were nice. The view from the main floor was just of the dunes--couldn't see the beach. The deck had some boards and nails coming loose.
Dear Russ,
Thank you for taking the time to share how your stay was at WH973-MOTHER EARTH FATHER SKY.
We will pass your suggestions along to the homeowner and notify the right department of the things we can fix!

I am in my 70s while the rest of our family group ranged in age from 3 months to 45 years. I enjoyed the time I spent here. Corolla is a beautiful town near the upper end of the Outer Banks of NC not far from the Virginia border. It was nice for us all to be together while sharing a living space for a week enjoying the ocean waves, pool, hot tub and grilling seafood and steaks at our seashore home as well as driving to the wonderful restaurants in the Tim Buck II shopping center a short distance south of this location. While here we also enjoyed the off-road wild horse safari in the 4WD beach access area, the Currituck Lighthouse and watching the sunset across the bay while part of our group kayaked in the bay. Also kite flying was fun and just enjoying the solitude of the area in an unhurried way. It was truly an idyllic setting for our vacation. Please consider constructing a wooden walkway across the dune as many of our neighboring houses have particularly for older folks like me. Thank you for providing a home away from home for us.
Dear Faye,

We have been coming to OBX with friends for many years. This is the first time we stayed at this house. It was very clean and comfortable, The only downfall was that there was no decking going to the beach. Going over the sand dune go old real fast. We ended up taking the public access which was 1 house over.
Dear Lisa,
Thank you so much for taking the time to review MOTHER EARTH FATHER SKY!
Hopefully the homeowner will be permitted to build a private walkway to the ocean in the future.
I know she will be delighted with how you found the home so clean and comfortable. I bet you enjoyed the new pool too!
Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals looks forward to serving you again in 2016.

The property may not be the "fanciest" on the beach but you cannot beat the location. You could spend the same money for a newer house a few blocks back but you will not get to sit on the deck at night and watch the stars and listen to the ocean. It was a quick walk to the boardwalk to the beach and nice to have the pool and beach so close if someone wanted to take a quick dip before dinner. I enjoyed myself quite a bit.
Dear Rebecca,
Thank you for reviewing MOTHER EARTH FATHER SKY! It souds like you had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful oceanfront vacation dream.

The rental was a nice relaxing weekend. I just wanted to make note of a few things that need attention. <br/>-The Microwave does not work, and the repair ppl never came. But we made due just fine. <br/>-There are a few loose decking boards on the steps and porch that just need a few screws. <br/>Other then that It was a great stay.
Dear Travis,

I apologize about the microwave and will look into it immediately. Like you, we want everything working just right.
How did you enjoy the wonderful pool? It is almost brand new and we are so proud the homeowner worked so hard to make it happen.

On the plus side, the interior living and sleeping spaces were roomy the beds were comfy, the pool and hot tub were great, the gas grill was handy, and the location couldn't be beat. It was also very clean. On the other hand, the kitchen could use an update and the dune in front of the house made it difficult (but not impossible) to walk directly to the beach (however the public walkway was only one house away). There also was no basketball hoop as advertised. All in all, great value and a great vacation.

Everything was handled well. Have already recommended property to

I spent several minutes typing up a review but had no warning about the length of characters reaching max. So this is useless unfortunately and I am not wasting my time trying to fit a review in without knowing where I stand with character length. Highlights are good location, poor lighting, poor kitchen floor (dangerous), spiral staircase (pretty but also dangerous), nice views from equal masterbedrooms, hot tub and fireplace worked great. Would stay again. Better end description before I go too far without knowing .....(too bad)....
