Incredible home, heated pool, hut tub, ocean view, 2 min walk to the beach, shops within a mile, clean and beautiful!
Donna O. Aug 2022
Loved the home location to the beach and the pool was nice. House needs a deep cleaning. HORRIFIC smell of mold blowing through the A/C. MOLD issue in that house. Lost use of 3 beds because we arrived to a broken down duo bunk that I had to make multiple calls for. No mattress cover and the full bed was pee stained horribly. Mattresses in the bunk room were so uncomfortable on the bed that was not broken. Cots given on day 3 or 4 but guests did not pay a lot of money and travel 10 hours for cots. Extremely molded shower curtain in the downstairs bathroom and no shower curtain at all in my bathroom. Lack of attention and care. Kitchen pans were terrible and needed can opener sent. The 2 there were rusted and would not cut. Multiple doors struggle to open and close. Upkeep on the house has not been maintained. Stairways are worn down and multiple rooms need painting. High cost of renting and extreme fees should assure quality care and consistency for each guest. Cleaning guy was super nice but he needed help. 2 bedrooms did not have the sheets changed which he came back and fixed. Closet in the bedroom above the game room smelled of mold horrifically. Moved all my stuff out because clothes were starting to smell. Imagine if I have not made multiple phone calls asking for help there would still not be a new bed in the bunk room for the next guests. I am still waiting for someone to call me. I was told I should get a call to discuss some kind of refund.
Manager response:

Sixth time renting in OBX.

Likes....
...Nice, roomy house.
...Fairly priced for the area.
...Layout exceptional with plenty of balconies with views of the ocean
...Convenient pool and tiki bar
...PM staff was pleasant and friendly
...Large, fenced-in backyard for pets, volleyball, and other lawn sports. ...Hot tub and pool were well-maintained and pristine.
...Internet was good.
...Two dining areas on main floor for large family dinners.
...Two dishwashers most helpful.
...Short walk to public access.
...Very convenient to Food Lion for groceries

Dislikes...
...Cleaning crew (1 person) did not show until check-in time. One person totally inadequate for a house this size. Fortunately, we brought cleaning supplies with us and helped ready the place.
...Main refrigerator did not work on arrival. Would not cool. After repeated power-down/power-up, it began to work. The outlet behind the refrigerator, however, was broken so we needed an extension cord. Prop. Mgmt. did respond quickly with a "loaner" refrigerator but it was on basement floor.
...Cleaning crew not responsible for patio, outside balconies, entry ways, etc. Fortunately, door was broken to tool room so we were able to use leaf blower to clean most. One balcony had used cigars in large urn.
...Property Mgmt needs to check multi-level structure supporting hot tub (2nd level). Support beam appears to be bowed.
...No guidebook provided giving days of garbage pickup or other advice.
...3rd floor bedroom, center support post on bed broken
...kids heavily used shuffleboard in main living area but it badly needs refurbishing
...plenty of bedrooms but most had kings/queens. With kids, preference for twins or, better, more bunkbeds.
...Nice pool table. Better if chalk and bridge were provided.

It would be good if PM staff could meet/greet and do walk-through on arrival to view status of house. Realize this is unrealistic on check-in day but would have been a helpful visit on day 2, 3 or even 4 to review status of house.

The house is very spacious with a great location. Could use a little more attention to house upkeep. The house was clean
Brad J. Jan 2022
Overall we had an enjoyable experience at Parrots in Paradise 481 over the Christmas break. I'll start with the good: big house with many bedroom choices for the family, location was excellent for a walk on the beach or quick run to the store. Now the bad: the house was not clean upon arrival. "Property Reps" stopped by to check on us shortly after arrival and even they agreed it was not sufficiently cleaned. 2nd trip by cleaning crew was not worth it; they spent a total of 15 additional minutes; mostly explaining that disgusting curtains, beddings and foreign substances on the walls were not their responsibility. We spent a solid 4 hours upon arrival sweeping, dusting, cleaning bathrooms and rewashing all of the bedding (for 8 bedroom house!) There was trash scattered around the property and the pool looked like it had not been touched in weeks - needless to say we didn't get in. And even though we requested the pool heat to be turned on the day of our arrival, it was not.
The place has great potential but lots of areas to improve for the next renters.
Manager response:
We are so sorry to read cleanliness was severely lacking and will be sure this addressed. Hopefully we can better impress you in the future.

Loved the layout of the house. Perfect for families.
Elizabeth V. Jul 2021
Beds were wonderful!! House was great!! Location was perfect!! Would have been nice to have 2 refrigerators in kitchen for the size of house
Annie Q. Jul 2021
The location to the beach was great; the house was large enough for our group of 18 and had really nice decks and pool area. However, the house was not thoroughly cleaned. The first floor smelled like mildew and wasn't clean, the kitchen floors left our feet black and we had to vacuum ourselves. The kitchen sink drains also didn't drain well.
Manager response:
Hello Annie, we are sorry to have been unable to provide you with a pleasant and relaxing vacation experience. We strive to maintain a standard of excellence in home cleanliness and upkeep for the comfort of our guests in addition to being readily available to assist in addressing any questions or concerns that might arise. We appreciate the opportunity to address any outlying concerns with our local team to ensure our service standards are being thoroughly met.

The house was fine but could use some updating and a little TLC.
Lynn M. Jun 2021
The house is fully accomadating. Clean and well stocked. 4 generations had a great time.
Victoria G. Jun 2021
The home was spacious, decorated lovely, Kitchen well stocked with kitchenware. However, we were supposed to check in at 4pm. Family traveled for days, had to sit outside in heat for over 2 hours while housekeeping worked to POORLY clean the home. After they left we all had to work to clean the house ourselves before we could unpack. Called vacasa and they said property manager would call us but never did. We left the home very clean and neat. Much better than we found it.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Victoria. We apologize for the delay in getting your vacation started and for the inconvenience. Please know that this is not our typical standard. We will follow up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed in a timely fashion. We hope that the remainder of your stay had unfolded with comfort and ease. Thank you for staying with us!
Devin W. May 2021
We enjoyed our stay at this home. It was much larger than expected! We had enough bedrooms (10 ppl) to fit everyone and still had plenty of space. The jacuzzi and pool were both added bonuses!
Great location, short walk to the beach and under 5 min away from shopping.
House was VERY clean as well. Typical beach house so there was sand on the floors but that was expected. I'd for sure stay here again if I got the chance!!
Verena A. Apr 2021
This home accommodates a lot of people has comfortable bedrooms and good configuration with lots of bathrooms and two living room spaces. Although not 'front row' it has views of the ocean from several spots.
