Simply divine, Coral Castle is as good as it gets - located 50 feet to the sound-front boardwalk and boasting incredible views of the ocean, the sound, the lighthouse, and subdivision lakes. Two kayaks are available for use at the sound. Access to the sound side is via the boardwalk, just a short walk from the front door.

The first level features a game room with a pool table, a mini-kitchen, an entertainment package, an elevator, and deck access to the swimming pool. The second floor is home to two bedrooms, each with deck access. The fourth and fifth sound-view bedrooms are close to the laundry room. Head upstairs to the third floor to find the sixth and seventh bedrooms with deck access and whirlpool tubs, as well as a dedicated theater room with built-in surround sound. Linens and towels are provided, and beds are made for guest arrival. The fourth floor is a stunning great room with tall ceilings, upscale furnishings, a half-bath, a fireplace, an entertainment package, access to outdoor sundecks, and angelic views of the sunrises and sunsets.

Great house . Needs some maintenance updates. Especially around deck and pool.
Manager response:

The house is in a great neighborhood and located just down from a shopping plaza with a grocery store, Duck Donuts, Dirty Dick's Crab Shack and some other stores, which was nice. There's also a little elevated path across the street that leads to a small private beach which was cool. Lots of space for all of us to relax and loved that the bedrooms were almost all king beds, and really comfy ones at that - we all had a great night's sleep every night we stayed! The furnishings are super outdated though and really unappealing (e.g., coral walls, red couch) and not enough comfy seating in the TV room for more than 5/6 people unfortunately. A giant sectional would be a welcome upgrade, same with ottomans instead of clunky (and dangerous) glass coffee table/side tables. The "grill" was a hot mess, which we spent a solid 30 mins scrubbing down - it looks like one of those cheap camping grills you'd see at a rest stop. Investing in a real, proper gas grill would be a welcome upgrade too. The pool and hot tub were great, although the pool is quite small. We were shocked at the charge to heat it and disappointed the 'max temp' was only 80 degrees (for context, we have a 20x40 large inground pool at our house, and the actual cost to heat it to 90 degrees, which is what we keep it at, is less than 10% of what we were charged for Coral Castle... and we live in the next state so I can't believe it's NC power rates that make up that 90% upcharge). The elevator also malfunctioned while we were there and when we reported it, we got a message saying "sorry, we'll let the local management team know" but it was never fixed. Luckily we were all able-bodied but that could have been a huge issue had we had a handicapped person in our party. We were also surprised at the lack of outdoor furniture (again for context, we have multiple cushioned loungers and outdoor sofas at our house) but suppose that may be on account of the insane winds that apparently impact the outer banks every day. Overall I give Coral Castle 4 stars - it definitely has the potential to be 5, but needs updated furnishings, a better grill, and more reasonable pool heating charges.
Manager response:
Hi, Kate! Your feedback is greatly appreciated. The homeowner will be purchasing a new, propane grill, and they are looking into new furniture in the near future. The pool heating rates are based on average cost of electricity on the island and the labor cost to maintain it. This property has a dedicated maintenance person with their phone number posted in the house so guests can reach out directly for assistance. Thank you!

The house is perfect for our needs. ample parking and it has all we need to make our week great.

This house was amazing and fit all of my family's needs great space made us all very comfortable and never crowded would definitely stay here again.

I would like to start by saying the exterior is a bit ruff around the edges . Once inside the house to the eye is beautiful.
However they could use a bit of maintenance up due for sure . When we arrived there were broken pool chairs witch one our friend fell off on .
A gentlemen came to replace them the night before we were leaving so we really didn’t have chairs to sit by the bar area outside all week .
There was a broken toilet paper holder in the master bathroom and broken screen laying on the second floor patio.

Besides these broken items the house held our 14 person party very well.
We loved the location , 5 mins from the beach access which was wonderful .
We all had trucks which was nice bc you are able to buy passes to take the trucks onto the beach .

The house is equipped with lots of pots and pans and many utensils.
That was a super plus .
The balcony’s were amazing for the sunrises and sunsets.
I will say having the house on the canal was one of our downfalls as the bugs were terrible.
Our girls gotten eaten alive outside at night time .

Over all it was a great experience. We would definitely rent the house again with hopes general maintenance was taken care of .

The house had some issues issues such as during during rain the doors leaked and the water came underneath the doors In the movie theater room showers had some black mold. The bottom oven did not work. The shower on one of the 3rd floor bedrooms you couldn't get hot water because the handle did not turn the whole way. The Soccer table was very dangerous and ready to collapse Great location Needs a lot of love and care
