Very close to the beach walkway. Decent amenities. Moving to Twiddy for 2023 with a rate increase of over 60%. Most definitely not worth the new price.

The house was in a great location, the pool was nice and clean. The house could have been cleaner when we arrived. There were crumbs on the end tables and under the living room furniture. The air condition filters were extremely dirty (they should be replaced ) There was long hair clogging the shower drain. But other than that, it was very nice and enjoyable. The kitchen is stocked pretty well with necessities.
Response from Beach Realty of North Carolina, Inc.
Thank you Brenda for your review. We wish our housekeepers would have done a more thorough job prior to your arrival. We send multiple messages asking our guests to alert us immediately in the case a cleaning call-back is needed. Had we have been notified, we would have promptly returned to correct these issues so we are very sorry to hear we couldn't do this for you. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay however and we look forward to having you back again.

This house had a wonderful ocean view and it was a very short walk to the beach access, also the steps to the beach were less than we have had in the past. The house was very clean, the outside shower did not work but there was a hose by the carport. We would definitely rent this house again.

The Location is really nice & across the road from the the line of Ocean Front for a beautiful placement having the beach access only about two houses away. The walk to the beach is very short and the beach was not crowded for our September stay. The house could use a bit of a deep clean due to a lot of dust accumulation throughout the house (fan/Mantle/etc), we attribute that to being an 'end or year week' rental. The rooms were spacious, the new top level deck was spectacular, and the fact the hot tub was serviced while there gave me GREAT confidence in it's cleanliness! Pool was clean and and a FANTASTIC treat! Loved Mermaid's Palace!
Response from Beach Realty of North Carolina, Inc.
Hi Kevin! It's great to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay and time in the Outer Banks. We hope to welcome you back to the beach next year!

Great location for beach access. Property had better amenities than some of the others we've stayed at (visiting since 2004), nice hot tub, large pool, house has easy external access to all levels. Great time for making family memories. Good value for the price of the 2021 season. Upon arriving and performing a perimeter check, the shower curtains needed replacement, notified property management and this was quickly resolved.
We were going to re-book the same week for 2022 but didn't feel the $850.00 rental increase (including all fees & insurance) was worth it since September is a "risky" weather time of year with the hurricanes.
Response from Beach Realty of North Carolina, Inc.
Hi Stephen, thank you for sharing your experience. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the home's amenities and had a memorable vacation! Unfortunately rates are adjusted every year due to market demand. September is a beautiful time in the Outer Banks, however you are correct that this time begins hurricane season. To help with this, we offer travel insurance which covers mandatory hurricane evacuations and other instances that prevent or interrupt travel. We thank you for being our guest and hope to see you again next year!

We've been coming to the OBX for 20 years and the family rated this house as top 3 for our budget. The location is great, the pool is a decent size. Super comfy beds. Great table space for eating and games. The kitchen is very well stocked. While we were there the dryer didn't dry and the pool light didn't work so we couldn't swim after dark (which the teens usually love), but both were just slightly annoying. I would absolutely stay here again. We had a problem getting the TV to work and got a call within hours with directions on how to fix it. Lost our entry code and got a text immediately. Rental company very responsive. Great experience all the way around.
Response from Beach Realty of North Carolina, Inc.
Thank you for sharing your experience, Rebecca. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the home and all the amenities! Apologies for the inconveniences of the pool lights and dryer, we will ensure that our maintenance team is aware and fixes these items. We hope to welcome you back to the beach very soon!

The house is 2 houses from the beach access. The breeze on the third deck was amazing at night. The house was very clean and the kitchen amenities were perfect. The pool and hot tub we perfect for after the beach. The only recommendation i would have is to bring some extra beach chairs. The ones supplied could use some refreshing. Other than that the place was amazing!!! Beach Realty's communication was fantastic!!!

The house was clean with several upgrades. (Bathrooms, kitchen, part of deck, couch, beds) We enjoyed the pool even though it was cold during our May stay. The hot tub was great to warm up after a dip in the pool! The screened in porch was nice to have breakfast in. Views were nice. We would definitely stay here again.

It was just our family of 7 so we had plenty of room. The bedrooms and kitchen were great. The only problem was the deck and pool fencing needed replaced. The ocean view was awesome. The access to the beach was very close! I would definitely stay here again.

Overall our rental experience was nice. Glad the kitchen had new appliances and floors. You can tell the owners are putting efforts to fixing up the house. Still some things to be fixed but overall it was fine. The location is fantastic (made up for some of the shortfalls!)
