The boat ramp and docks handle small boats and personal watercraft. Acres of manicured sod keep Island Creek Resort looking good and feeling good underfoot. Relax in ICR's heated community pool or grab the Coppertone and head across the street to Avon's super beachfront. Spring and fall guests sing ICR's praises for board sports, while families regale in this secret spot for summer getaways. Seasoned travelers even head to ICR for their winter holidays. For parents introducing their families to the world of watersports and experts looking to perfect kiting, windsurfing, and kayaking techniques, this is truly a resort for all seasons.

The view was fabulous. We watched windsurfers, kiteboarders and kayakers cavort outside the living room window. Highly entertained!

Staying in this house for a third time. While spacious, it requires some TLC. The biggest issue is couch and chair upholstery in living room. It badly needs wet professional cleaning. We bring our own covers for couch and chair not to cover them.
Rooms are poorly lit. While the owners are trying to save money on electricity using low power bulbs, they waste a lot forcing the use AC day and night even during cool times: screens are absent on most windows and windows stay closed to avoid bugs and flies . Talk about penny smart and dollar stupid. We would rather open windows and shut AC. The argument about screens being damaged during storms does not apply to Island Tempest where most of the windows have screens.
The house overall leaves impression of being dated and worn out.
That said, Hatteras Realty maintenance team remains terrific, very responsive, helpful and thorough. Same must be said about personable, helpful office staff after 10-15 years renting from them.
Manager response:
We appreciate you staying with us and want you to know the homeowner plans to address your concerns this winter. Thank you!

Location is great, pool and sound right there plus walk to a lovely beach.
But house did not come with some basics like a sponge or starter coffee or trash bags. Not a big deal if you are fully prepared but a hassle if you don’t think to pack every possible thing for your vacation.
We would likely stay there again because we coordinate with friends but hope that the management company decides to invest an extra 20$ in comfort costs (for a rental that is quite pricey).
We called on Tuesday to ask for a sponge but got to response.
Cable tv also did not work.
Manager response:
Hi, Shawn! We are so happy to hear that you loved the location and the pool for this home. Thank you for providing your valuable feedback. We are sorry for any issues you encountered during your stay. Local staff is always available to assist if there are amenities in the home that fall short. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We hope to have a chance to host you next time. Thank you.

This is our 3d year in this house. While it is quite adequate, it has no personality, just a roof and place to sleep. It is a "tired" house and definitely requires some maintenance and TLC. Carpets need to be replaced long time ago, they do smell. When we moved a sofa from the middle of the room to the wall, a pile of dirt has appeared. I sent a picture of that dirt to the maintenance. We were promised a cleaning credit but that never happened. Kitchen is adequately equipped, however 4 wine glasses in the house intended for 8 people may not be enough. The float in one of the toilets does not sit properly...for 3 years and unless you actuate it a few times, the water keeps running. I tried to fix it myself, but the float chain is tangled badly.
Broken chair under the house was not removed in 3 weeks we stayed. Again, not critical, but the house clearly has no owner.
Well...actually it probably has the owner who DOUBLED the prices for 2022. At the total of $3646 per week in May the house better be...better, much better.
One word about the linen policy. We and majority of people drive down and bringing own linen is not a problem. We would rather bring our own linen than use what hundreds slept on before us. And we do bring our own, but still have to pay for linen "service" . Now the beds are made up before our arrival, so we have to also remove that well used linen we were forced to pay for. And the laundry will wash that unused linen wasting water and detergent.
Linen service MUST BE OPTIONAL. It is a waste of people's money, maintenance time, and bad for environment.
The last, but not the least...we stayed for 3 weeks meaning the house did not require to be cleaned in between weeks twice. Invoice does not specify credit for this.
All that said, we would stay in this house again and again if not for exorbitant 2x price increase.
This time was the end for us. Will look elsewhere.
Manager response:
Hi, Michael! Thank you for telling us about your visit. We are sorry to read there were some problems this time around. Maintenance is addressing the toilet, and a deep clean was recently completed. We hope to be able to better impress you in the future.
