This place was quite, close to the beach with a lighthouse view. The house was clean and ready to go! Will definitely be going back!!

This is the ideal vacation condo. It has minimum but sufficient amount of furniture (so not clutter). Very spacious. Just a few steps from the beach. Excellent view. We thoroughly enjoyed staying there.

This is a no-frills place with a great location near the Hatteras Lighthouse. Clean and quiet.

I would not consider this unit until several items are addressed by the rental agency.
I called it dilapidated in my review.
There is a hole in the soffit on the right side of the building where cold air freely blows into the attic space. It can be felt in the bedroom. The gutters are falling off or broken completely off.
There are tears in the carpet and sand spurs are embedded throughout the carpet in the entire unit. There is a hole in the cover on the cushion of one of the chairs.
The other chairs are plastic, outdoor style porch chairs.
The kitchen is lacking cutting boards and the pans are in poor shape. The non-stick coatings are flaking off and handles are extremely loose. The burners were filthy and smoked quite a bit when turned on. We also had to re install and element to get the level right.
Some cabinet doors are loose or broken.
The ceiling above the shower looks as though sludge is dripping from it.
If it wasn't for used cleaning gloves and dirty face masks left lying around, we would have considered it as not cleaned prior to arrival.
We also found a child's hoodie draped over the back of a chair.
Some of the pictures in the advertisement do not reflect the furnishings in the unit.
The unit is in dire need of deep cleaning and refurbishment. If immediate attention isn't given to address these issues, this units will be dilapidating quickly.
Manager response:
We're disappointed to read you were unhappy, Ryan. Hopefully our response will help alleviate come of your concerns. The roof was replaced after your stay, and the gutters will be addressed next. The carpet has all been replaced. The property manager is suggesting furnishing upgrades to the homeowner and will be replacing the ripped chair cushion. Kitchen inventory is getting restocked. Maintenance is scheduled to check your other concerns, and a deep clean is scheduled by housekeeping. Thank you!

Place was super close to the beach and was clean. Lacked a few things that would have made the trip better, such as oven mitts, trash cans in bathrooms/bedrooms, sponge for cleaning and access to a grill. Could not get the ice maker to work either which would have been helpful but overall a great trip!
Manager response:
Hi, Mark! The ice maker is getting fixed, and we are purchasing small trash cans. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention.

Great Location. Only complaint is the beds were really hard and uncomfortable. Other than that, it was great!
