Interaction with Guests
I am prompt to respond to any questions! Please send me an inquiry so we can confirm dates before creating a booking request. I rent this unit on multiple websites.
There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance, but having a car would be very convenient.
I expect my guests to take care of my property as I would take care of theirs. No boisterous activity that would bother my neighbors. This is a very peaceful area.
The location of this condo is A+ for the area. It is far enough down from the causeway to not be crowded or noisy. The building (not the unit) is oceanfront & close enough to the DoubleTree to grab some cocktails ;)
The condo, now that it is redone, has much better flow than how it was set-up before. And we kind of relied on Edward's description of how it would be when it was finished, since we booked before work was complete. And it was nice to stay somewhere and have the option to cook if we needed to. You can't do that (while you pay twice as much) at the DoubleTree. The only issue we had was not having much space between the bed & the wall, which made it awkward getting in & out of bed, but I wouldn't have traded more space for a smaller bed. We did not use the pool or laundry so we can't comment on that. The building was redone recently too & very nice, but maybe the boardwalk over the dunes could use some updating (I'm sure that is up to the building manager, not Edward). Tim (the building manager) was nice enough, but, again, not personal.
This was our first stay thru Airbnb that the host was not on-sight. So it is difficult to review since we have had some very wonderful stays with a lot of personal touches & great hosts. But the condo was very clean, and Edward certainly provided a lot of information beforehand to let us know what to expect. There were dishes, beach chairs, extra blankets, soaps & cleaning gear, and a couple kitchen towels. All other linens, towels or personals you have to bring with you, which I knew ahead of time.
Edward did give us a list of some places he suggested. Of all of his suggestions we were dieing to try Amos Mosquitos. So here is my added tips/suggestions: They are only open for dinner (5pm), they do not take reservations & it is VERY popular & crowded with a very small parking lot all week. GO AT 4:30, plan to wait in the sun until 5, and plan to wait extra for a table after that. It seems worth the wait, but, unfamiliar with their practices & how crowded it was, we were unsuccessful twice at getting in there.
Other than that, enjoy the beach!!!! If you need more to do, there is no shortage. Fort Macon was close & very interesting & pretty, also the Aquarium was also very close & much nicer & way more interesting than it sounds! Their indoor ocean tank was enormous & very cool! And there are plenty of ferries to take you to do whatever your heart may desire in the OBX too. We will be back for a longer stay to take more advantage of everything next time.
Edward went out of his way to accommodate my husband and I on our anniversary - he truly went above and beyond in making our stay a good one! He was extremely prompt to respond to emails, and helped me through the process of booking patiently! We would definitely come back again! Everything was clean and had that 'beachy' look and feel. It was a great trip!

About the Host, Edward

If you want all these things in one place, then come stay at my Beach Getaway! If I am contacting you for a place to stay rest assured that as a fellow host, I will treat your home with the same care as I do my own. I look forward to speaking to you soon!
