“Great House with Amazing Views”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This house had everything we needed. But the best part of it was the 3rd floor deck with such amazing views. We had an easy walk to the beach. Wish the renters before us hadn't left such a mess with dropping the charcoal by the outside shower, as I did not enjoy cleaning it up. Hope to come back to Here Comes the Sun again!!!

“Great place-- but...”

We agree with the other reviews here--- large, well-appointed house in a great location in Corolla. Great pool and hot tub, lots of space, appliances function well, air conditioning is good. Wonderful views of the ocean, and the immediately adjacent nature preserve--- we were able to see wild horses from our front porch windows.

But---- it may be standard operating procedure here, but it seems odd that:

* there is no toilet paper or paper towels;

* there are no condiments (ketchup, mustard etc.)

* there are no trash bags

* there are no beach towels

* while there is a charcoal grill, there is no charcoal

* etc.

Fortunately there are supermarkets in the area so you can go get this stuff, but it seems silly to require guests to do this. And the absence of all this stuff should be disclosed.

Dear Joseph Ronan,

Thank you for your review on "Here Comes the Sun" in Corolla. This is a beautiful vacation rental home that is one of our most popular homes.
We do apologize for the misunderstanding regarding standard operating procedure on the preparation and presentation of our properties. We do outline the preparation of the houses on our website, but sometimes first time visitors don't take notice of what to expect.
These are individually owned homes, and not presented in a resort type setting with daily cleaning service etc. We do of course provide you a starter supply of toilet paper in each bathroom, but we do not replenish that during the week. We also of course provided you one roll of paper towels, but do not replenish that either during your stay. The trash cans all have trash liners in place upon your arrival, but again you are correct there is not a "supply" of replacement liners provided. No we do not provide condiments and are not aware of that being done anywhere due to the nature of people not being comfortable using things like this that others may have already used. No we do not provide beach towels. That should have been made clear to the person who made the reservation for your group. We do provide sheets and bath towels (beds made too) at no additional charge, but again no beach towels. Finally we do not provide charcoal. Many of our houses actually have gas grills in fact.
We do try to ensure these items are discussed and disclosed during the reservation process, and are disappointed that you seemed unaware of these points.

We apologize.

All the best from the beach!
