“(Almost) Perfect Family Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013
people found this review helpful

We stayed here for one week in early June and loved it! The condo was very clean and nice. We were able to actually smell the cleaner when we went in. There was plenty of room for everyone (it would easily sleep 6), and having two bathrooms was a huge plus. The washer and dryer were a very good size and was also a very nice added feature since this condo did not come with linens and towels. The furniture was well kept and clean but not new. There was some visible signs of wear and tear, but given that this is a rental it was what we expected. (For example, minor carpet stains and issues, tilted ceiling fan, etc.). It did not detract from the rental.

The ONLY complaint that we had was that this rental did not have wifi. We knew this when we rented this particular condo, but it was the only one left when we booked (which was our fault). We had great cell phone service, and we were able to use our phones to access the Internet. This was practical for me to check email for work but was not practical for our teenage son, who loves to game on his computer.

The condo is easy to find, is in a fantastic location, had a pristine pool and deck area (we saw them clean it first thing in the morning every day that we were there). The condo had ocean and sound views, and a nice walkway for direct beach access. They are several outdoor grilling stations, outdoor shower areas, and a fish cleaning area. When we were there, the beach was beautiful and there was plenty of room for everyone even on the busiest day.

This area of the Outer Banks is beautiful, but don't expect much commercialization. This is a perfect location to get away from it all in a beautiful setting. If you want to shop, expect to drive (which we did) for mini golf, outlet shopping, chain restaurants (which we did not drive to because of all the great local ones). The nearest grocery store is also about a 25 minute drive.

Finally a word about Surf or Sound. They were terrific with us. We were first time renters with a family (grandparents to teenager), and I cannot sing their praises enough. Their customer service was terrific. They honestly seemed to care about us. They were patient, knowledgeable, and helpful! So much so that we have already booked a trip for next year with them in the same condo but a different unit (with wireless Internet). We have also talked with several family members who also booked with them.

Mo's place was great, and I would stay there again. 4.9 out of 5
