Review of stay from 2022-07-17 to 2022-07-24
The property had lots of space to spread out and everyone had own bedrooms with private baths. Kitchen had plenty of space as well as all necessities for cooking meals. Furnishings were dated and showed much wear although functionally adequate. Pool area was adequate but also showed lack of maintenance.

Over all A Wonderful Vacation

Review of stay from 2022-05-01 to 2022-05-08
This was our 3rd time staying at the Good Life! A few little things that we noticed, the Pool Table couldn't be used, as a couple of the pockets were not there. The foosball table wasn't usable, because one the rods wasn't working correctly. It hasn't been usable on any of our stays. Because the beds are high in some of rooms, one of our party, was hoping they would put a chair in the room. Also, no way to control the speed of the fan in one the 2nd level bedrooms. All and all, it was a wonderful time at the Good Life. Upon checking into the house, we were able to meet the house Owner. She is very pleasant, and really liked our Shelties! My favorite house in OBX!
