I rented this house with the expectation that it would be clean and safe. On the surface tables were clean, bathrooms wiped down, fresh linens (towels and sheets) provided and the floors were pretty clean, the hot tub was spotless. However, once you look in the pantry, through the kitchen drawers, look up at the ceiling fans/ bath fans, look at pillows on the sofas or sit on the living room furniture and feel its tackiness etc you see and feel how dirty/dusty the house is. There are random stains on various walls throughout the house, the baseboards are covered in dirt, and if you sleep in the bed with bunkbeds and look up you will see all the stains on the mattress. There were water bugs (look similar to cockroaches) that pop up in the bathrooms from time to time and the grills (2 of them) are absolutely disgusting. Vacasa did offer to come to the house to clean it again.
From a safety standpoint, the bedroom on the second floor with a private balcony had one railing that was extremely loose. By the luck of god, my husband was the first to go out (and not my toddlers) and see the serious problem. If he would have leaned against this railing he would have fallen 20 ft and it would have been catastrophic. Vacasa addressed this issue immediately; however, it shouldn't have been one in the first place. On the top floor deck there are some loose balusters, mostly a concern for young children. Lightbulbs for outside were burnt out. Vacasa did address this issue. Lastly, an outlet in the same bedroom as the one with the balcony issue started to sizzle when we put a plug in it. It burnt the ends of the plug. Vacasa came to replace this outlet and told us the house was safe to be in for the remainder of our trip.
If we dealt with a private owner who outsourced a reality company I believe many of these issues would have been prevented. Even though it was very frustrating to have one problem after another, Vacasa did address each issue quickly and we were reimbursed for the cleaning fee. Vacasas immediate responses over and over again is why I am giving them 2 stars.
While I will never use Vacasa again for a vacation we did make the best of the trip and my children have good memories from the experience.

Beautiful beach!

This house is PERFECT! I will admit that base upon other reviews that were not so good, I was very nervous that I would find the house filthy and in shambles so I brought a ton of cleaning supplies and my own vacuum. What I found was the complete opposite. The house was just perfect, I didn't need to clean a thing and it smelled very clean. This house cannot be in a better location. It is basically on the end of a row of homes so you feel as though you are on a private beach. The road to the home is only shared by one other house so it really is very private. The walk to the beach can't be easier as there is only one very small dune to walk over. Upon entering the middle floor you are surrounded by windows with a breathtaking view of the ocean. The house is so close to the water that you feel like you are on the beach. All of the beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious and there are 3 full size refrigerators! We spent full days on the beach and the evenings enjoying each others company playing cards. I ensured that I cleaned the house before we left and I used my vacuum to pull out the sand that we inevitably tracked in throughout the week. I hope that I was able to provide the cleaning crew with a leg up on the hard work that they do each week for however many homes that they service. They do an excellent job and I give them kudos. One thing to note for future renters that we didn't pick up on. This house is not serviced by the island trash company. Instead a person hired by Vacasa drives around in a truck and picks up the trash. So when you read that you need to take the trash cans to the curb on Tuesday's and Friday's, you do not.
I have already rented this house for next year and I cannot wait to go.
Enjoy your visit!

We should have paid more attention to the June 2021 review about being dirty because his review was spot on. The place hasn’t had a real cleaning in quite sometime. Lots of maintenance issues: dirty air filter, more dirt on the ceiling fans than I’ve ever seen, hot tub only had one set of jets that worked, had to call for help because the deadbolt on the lock was so worn that we couldn’t get the dirt open to enter the place. I could go on and on, but the cleaning and maintenance program for this place needs a lot of improvement. Very disappointed because this is simply a matter of taking care of the details.
Manager response:

Let me start with the good: Parking was plentiful. The Hot Tub was clean. Access to the beach was great!!

The bad: The house was filthy. Walking into the home was very disappointing and had me very concerned. I don't mind some wear and tear, which is to be expected at a beach home I feel. But the dirt and grime found on every surface (counter tops, sinks, floors, carpets, door knobs, etc. etc.) was really disturbing.

Fresh sheet/pillow case sets were provided for all the beds, but only 2 bedrooms had a blanket. So some of us had to use beach towels to cover up.

There was an insane amount of dog hair on the hard floors in the kitchen/living room area. There was bug guts smeared on most walls through the home. When I unpacked my bags and put my stuff away in the bathroom, there was a hair on the toilet seat, I had to clean urine off the rim of the toilet under the seat, and the sink faucet had crud on it (tooth paste spit?). I don't know how the other bathrooms were, I let our other family members take care of their areas.

I'm not a picky guy and I don't like to complain. This house needs THOROUGHLY cleaned. We found the condition of the home unacceptable, but moved on and did our best to our enjoy our time together WITHOUT tarnishing it complaints to Vacasa. For almost $8000 for the week, we expected a clean home. I've never stayed in a place this filthy before. Low budget road side motel dives (I've stayed at few) are cleaner than this home. I'm sorry you have to read this, but this needs to be said.
Manager response:
Hello Steven, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We strive for a standard of excellence in ensuring the home is clean and accommodating for our guests. If there are any concerns or areas in need of additional attention, we hope to be notified so we can make sure any issues are addressed. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future.

loved ocean view
Amy S. Mar 2021
The house was great. We had plenty of space for the six of us. Kitchen was excellent with everything working as it should. Views from the decks were breath-taking. Only issue we had was that there weren't enough towels for each bathroom, and that there were no bedspreads on any of the beds. Would definitely rent this house again! The location is one of the best that Rodanthe has to offer!
Manager response:
Hi, Amy! We are delighted to read you enjoyed your stay with us. The bedspreads have been removed due to COVID-19 because we could launder them between each reservation in a timely manner. There are blankets on each bed with extras in the closet. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need more towels. Thank you!

This house is great for those who love the beach and do not want to be close to things. Great views from the front of the home of the ocean.
This home is in need of a little TLC, however, it is a rental and somethings are to be expected.
Overall we had a great time spent in this home.
