Outer Banks Blue is an awesome company to deal with. The house was ready on time; it was neat and clean. When a problem arose with the hot tub, Outer Banks Blue was on it and had it fixed as soon as possible.
The house fit our needs perfectly. We were very pleased.
This was our first visit to the Outer Banks, and we look forward to many more.

Mostly OK with a couple of downsides.
For the most part the house was comparable to others we have rented in the price range. However, we were disappointed by three issues:
1) after being told the gas fireplaces were "set to go" we learned upon arrival that the owner had discontinued their use-that should have been noted on the website description. We selected the house in part because it had fireplaces for a cozy November stay.
2)the house has a single heat pump, which resulted in heating imbalances; too hot on the top floor, too cool in the lower level.
3) Most disappointing, there was sand in the sheets and blankets of at least two of the bedrooms!
