“Great Location - Nicely decorated house”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I read the reviews for this house and I was worried about staying there this summer. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the house. The location of the house is fantastic. It is an extremely short walk to the beach. This house has its own boardwalk to the beach. The beach is not crowded at all. The neighborhood is pretty and charming. The house itself is really nice too. The house is prettily decorated . I have been staying in Corolla for almost 20 years and this is one of the nicest decorated houses that I have been too -it is very beachy and everything goes well together. Everything in the house was clean. The kitchen was well equipped. The rooms are nice. There are two swings at the house. The shingles on the house are a little beat up outside,The deck is not new, but it is perfectly adequate. But, everything inside is really nice. I would definitely recommend staying here. I think the owners have probably renovated and redecorated since the last reviews. Fresh paint - nice blinds - nice furniture - new tables and chairs etc.

“Just OK”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This house has a great location to the beach and good layout, but has issues. We got to the house at 4:00 check-in time and were very disappointed to find it hadn't been cleaned. Called the rental company and they sent cleaners, but we had all our stuff there and it wasn't really cleaned that well. There was pet hair in the carpeting, human hair in the bathrooms, blood on the bathroom vanity and on an extra blanket, dirty window/screens, and dusty blinds. The house is a little rough around the edges and could use a good cleaning. I contacted the rental company when we first got there and again when we left and their response was "Thanks for letting us know, let us know if we can help you with another reservation".

Thanks for voicing your concerns about this property. We apologize again for you arriving at the house before the cleaners were able to prepare the property. The crew that was assigned to the house had car trouble and did not report that to us until after you called. Glad we were able to get there quickly with another crew and get your vacation started.
We also apologize for the follow up e-mail that you received seemed insensitive to your issue.

Dear Sdrumwright,

Thank you for your positive comments about "Duck Refuge." This is a wonderfully located property in Duck village and we are glad you had a great stay.

We are also glad that you let us know of the issues that came up during your stay and are glad that we rectified all of the issues that came up including the flappers that needed slight adjustment on the two commodes, replacing the light bulbs that burned out, and replacing the shower head that cracked during your stay. and replacing the lamp shade that got damaged.
We look foward to serving you again soon.

All the best from the beach!
