We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Great location on the ocean and it was nice to have the pool and hot tub. There were only a few families around us on the beach which made for pleasant visits to the beach. The pool was a perfect temperature, size, depth, and it was well-maintained. The inside of the home was laid out well with plenty of space and had comfortable seating. The numeric keypad was very convenient for check-in and check-out and it was great not needing to carry a key. Would definitely stay here again. My only recommendation would be to redo the caulking around the bathtub in the master bath, it was a bit mildewed and stood out from the rest of the house. Be careful not to lock yourself out on the deck off the master bedroom. If the latch is in the lock position and you shut the door all the way from the outside, it locks. Village Realty has an app that is very informative for receiving and storing important information about our stay. Village Realty was very responsive to our report about a minor maintenance issue.

Overall we had a very good time at the Crab Cottage!The location is great. It is very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and you can't beat the beach access. It is also fairly close to the pier to walk, fish, or eat. The hot tub and pool were nice. We had 7 people total staying here and had a hard time finding a comfortable place for everyone to sit in the living room with only the couch and two rocking chairs & we could have used more (softer) towels. Otherwise, our stay was great!

Overall a very nice house with wonderful location. Only have a few suggestions - a concrete walkway to the pool area would be so nice so you don't have to worry about either walking through the sand/rocks to get to it or wearing your shoes to get there. There were a few items needed in the kitchen/home for basic functions but nothing major. Again a nice home, wonderful location and our family had an excellent vacation!!
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your house and its wonderful location. We appreciate your helpful feedback, and will make sure to ensure all required kitchen items are adequately supplied, and will update as needed.

We love this house! We stayed in it last year around the same time. The heated pool is always a hit with all of us and the beach access is awesome. Love waking up to the beautiful sunrise and being able to see a gorgeous sunset. Only issue we had was with the keyless entry but that was resolved quickly by Village Realty. Would definitely stay here again!
Thank you Kelli for your review. We are so happy to hear you loved your house, and we really do appreciate you staying with us for a second year in a row. I am happy to announce this home will be getting new mattresses, a new sectional sofa in the living room, and possibly other exciting upgrades moving into the 2019 season. We look forward to welcoming you back for another great vacation here on the beautiful Outer Banks.

We had never stayed at this property before. We were very happy with the room layout, as we had 10 people in the house ranging in ages from 4 - 81. The house was comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. We used the outside seating, beach, pool and hot tub a lot. Our only complaint would be the tv's were difficult. There was instructions on how to turn on the living room system, but the upper bedroom tvs we couldn't get to function. The other issue was the grill. When the property advertised it had a grill, we assumed it was a gas grill. It was a permanently installed charcoal grill, which was small. The pool was fabulous. Half our party spent every day at the beach, the rest every day at the pool. We thought the house was a little overpriced compared to others in the same area during the same time period. But we made our reservations late and were left with few options. We may consider staying here in the future.

We had a wonderful week with our family visiting Nags Head. Crab Cottage is ideally located right on a beautiful stretch of beach and was just the right size and very comfortable for our group. Our only suggestion would be that some updating/cleaning/maintenance are really needed. The bathtub in the large upstairs bedroom has nasty looking black stains along the grout lines that regrouting would take care of. The jet outlets in the tub also need a thorough cleaning to get rid of the moldy looking stains in them. In addition, you should remove/replace the rusted shower caddy and shower curtain liner. The pillows in the bedroom were sadly limp and stained and should also be replaced. The dishwasher should be checked to ensure it is working properly (seemed to take a long time to cycle). Lastly please consider removing the ancient barbecue grill and replacing it with an up to date propane grill. Attention to these few, but significant things would create a much better impression when guests visit.
Thank you Joian, for your survey. We are so happy you all enjoyed the home and your vacation. SN39 really does have a great location. Our teams will be looking into the maintenance and housekeeping items listed. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next Outer Banks vacation.

We had no problems with renting this beach front home. Village Realty has easy and friendly procedures and staff. The app is excellent and helpful! The Crab Cottage, though, was a bit below our expectations. Well equipped kitchen, but it could use some updating. No pantry for our food items and the kitchen sink was very dirty and gross! The floor is nearly impossible to keep clean, especially with the dirty broom provided and the outdoor mats and rugs were so caked with sand when we arrived that they didn't help at all. Mattresses were terribly uncomfortable in all rooms. And, the bathrooms were very nasty with dirt, mold and inadequate shower curtains. Nice new carpet upstairs and the back upper deck had beautiful high chairs to watch the ocean! Many light bulbs were burned out. The walkway to the ocean was great and the hot tub was nice. We definitely will call Village Reality but will try a different house.
Thank you Diane for your feedback. It was a pleasure speaking with your husband Paul today, and thank you for your kind words regarding our staff. As I mentioned to Paul I am sorry the cleanliness of your home was not up to our usual standards, and again I am sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused you. I have shared your comments also with our Operations team to address any areas needed and to ensure that our standards are maintained. I am so happy you enjoyed your vacation overall, especially the views of the ocean from your balcony and home. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next OBX vacation.

we had a great week at Crab Cottage! the location was perfect. Access to the beach was wonderful. We were able to watch dolphins in the surf every morning for hours and go crab hunting at night! The sunrises were breath taking! Having a pool was a great bonus as the ocean was cold and rough most days. We enjoyed calling Crab Cottage home for the week. there were a couple of small issues, but Village Realty took care of them right away. We come to the OBX every other year and would definitely recommend using them.

This house was perfect for my 3 kids and parents. Easy access to the beach via a safe deck. It was very easy for my older parents to access everything. The pool and hot tub were very relaxing. Close enough to restuarants and activities but far enough from crowds. We had a great time! First time using Village Realty. Very happy with the experience.
