“Good location, but house dated and not clean...”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We arrived late on Sunday to a kitchen crawling with ants, and ant traps on counters. We called the next day about the ants and other complaints. The kitchen was not very clean, crumbs left in barstools, chairs, etc. By midweek, Outer Banks Blue had put more traps on the counters, but we continued to have ants all week. They did offer to come clean the house, but we had already moved in by then, and felt that it would be disruptive to have that done. The house should have been cleaned properly for us to use in the first place. Perhaps OBB needs a better cleaning service...

Other complaints include: Kitchen island had only 3 barstools...the 4th was in downstairs bedroom ; sear had been glued where broken in half. OBB was supposed to come and check barstool and bring upstairs if usable...they never came.
Master bathroom had no shower curtain, just a dirty liner--ugh.
There was a bloody bandaid on the nightable next to one of the beds--ugh.
Vertical blinds broken and hardly usable in two bedrooms, making it difficult to use sliding glass doors.
WIFI was awful; could only have one user logged in at a time.
We tried to use the vacuum midweek, but it didn't work. Called OBB, said they'd bring another--they never did.
Overall, the house was dated, with no flat screen TV's, kitchen old and not equipped well at all. The cabinetry and counters definitely need a facelift, and the kitchen overall felt dirty.

Despite the close proximity to the beach (about 6 houses back from the boardwalk to the beach), we would not rent this house again, and won't rent from Outer Banks Blue again due to their poor service.
