This was our first time at 35 Porpoise Place, but we have been renting through CB Coastline for years. The rental company is consistently horrible to work with and has very little concern with your happiness after booking.
The house itself is lovely. Upon check-in the house was really not as clean as I would like, especially the garbage area which pulls out from the kitchen counter.
The bottom was filthy as well as the bottom of the dishwasher. Strangely, this house did not have a garbage disposal so a lot of food probably fell to the bottom of the dishwasher and under the garbage cans, which may have contributed to the roaches. Also, the location and the beach are quite nice, however, just a few houses down, on the far north end, there are condemned properties that are in total disarray and falling into the ocean...which may contribute to our only major problem with this rental. ROACHES. In all of my years of vacationing in North Carolina, I have never had issues like this. The first night in the house I spotted two in the living room. This was on Saturday, by Sunday, I saw several more. In my bathroom on the lower level they were crawling into the baseboards.
The rental company did send out pest control on Monday to spray the house, but by then the damage in our eyes was done. I continued to find live and now dead roaches throughout the remainder of our trip all over the house and outside. I was uncomfortable the entire week with thoughts roaches and was quite concerned that they would travel back home in our luggage and vehicle. I did not even take my luggage into my house until it was shaken out and thoroughly cleaned.
Upon check-out, I was asked if I enjoyed my stay and again I mentioned the roaches....there was no concern or apology, which was par for the course in dealing with the rental agency. I will not be returning to this particular house nor using CB Coastline again.
Great location with beautiful views of the ocean and sunset over the marshes as promised. The house was in great shape with no evidence of being pet friendly. Would definitely come back but we loved the area so much we want a bigger place and bring more family.
