My family has stayed at many OBX beach rentals up and down the island, and this home was definitely our favorite rental so far. We enjoyed some of the most breathtaking sunrises and ocean views from the tower room of this home, and if the sun got too intense, we just hopped down a floor to one of the shaded deck below to enjoy the same gorgeous views. This house impressed us right away as being very clean and wonderfully equipped, with little extras that made the place feel special like the pool side tiki bar. All of the appliances worked well and were good quality. The pool and hot tub were a very nice place to relax after a day at the beach, and were professionally cleaned during our stay. We will definitely return.
Beach Music is nicely appointed. There is a tv and a private bath in every bedroom.
It is located in a very quiet area.
It was about a 1/4 mile walk to the boardwalk to get to the actual beach.
All worth the walk as the beachs are not crowded and very serene.
If you did not want to trek to the beach the pool was a great amenity.
A few of the disappointments were 1) no toilet paper in ANY bathroom upon arrival after a 12 hour drive.Can't spare a square?
2) When it rains the driveway floods. And we mean FLOODS...you cannot get around the watery muddy mess without driving through it.Even taking the garbage to the curb is a big chore.
3) The pots and pans seemed to be from the 1970's.Please homeowners get some decent cookware. The cutting board was the size of my palm, Really? Imagine us trying to slice up food for a family dinner. It was interesting to say the least.
4) The place could definitley use a spit n shine. It was very dusty.The counters in the kitchen nor the grill were cleaned when we arrived. The cleaning crew needs to step up their act a bit.
5) There is a huge catamaran shipwrecked in the front yard. Not sure what that's all about but again, pay attention to detail...people notice these things and they could be a deal breaker.
We made the best of it and had a great time.
This review is meant to be constructive, as well as, informative.
I think it would be a five star place to stay if they paid attention to the particulars.
