Great Stay
We really enjoyed our stay in Fireflies. It was very roomy for our large group and affordable as well. We found the kitchen to be very well stocked compared to other places we have rented. We brought along items that we really didn't need! The furniture was mostly comfy, but a couple of armed LR chairs need some attention. The TV worked fine once we figured it out. The walk to the beach wasn't too bad if you're carrying a light load. We chose to drive all our beach "stuff" over in a couple vehicles which we left parked in the public lot and then most of us walked back and forth to the house. Coastal Carolina staff were very attentive to our messages, bringing over the couple of things that were needed like balls for the Foosball table. On the last night we welcomed Tropical Storm Ophelia and discovered that the wind driven rain was flooding around the driveway entrance door. They might want to take a look at that. It never went past the entryway tile floor so we saw no need to call anyone since we were leaving the next morning. All things considered it was a great house and wonderful vacation. Too bad it couldn't get picked up and set on the beach front!

We are pleased to hear you had a wonderful vacation, and thank you for sharing your experience. We will make sure to inspect the LR chairs you mentioned, and address as needed. Your kind words are much appreciated, come back and visit us again soon!

Family beach week
The house was perfect for me and my grown children and their families. Plenty of space to spread out as well as gather together. The pool table was a hit. The proximity of the pool and hot tub was also good for small groups to spend time. Beach access is easy with no stairs at either of the 2 very close access points. We've vacationed in the Nags Head area for the past 30 years. As my 5 children have grown to adulthood and started families, our house requirements have changed. This was the first year that I didn't rent from the same local real estate company due to availability. I'm glad I found this house on VRBO, and will check again next year.

Huge house in a quiet area
I've rented a few vacation homes in OBX, and this one by far had the most space, open area, and comfortable furniture for the price. The beach access is only a short 2 minute walk, and the area was relatively quiet and peaceful - the beach wasn't very crowded either! The kitchen had a ton of cookware and appliances, and there were plenty of large tvs to enjoy during the rainy days. The pool is on the smaller side, and most of the decks have private access - but they match what you see in the photos, so no surprises there. Everything seemed fresh and clean! My only suggestion would be to add or bring some kind of light shade for the hot tub - like a sun blocking umbrella or a canopy.

Big house in a quiet area
Plenty of bedrooms and open space. Kitchen is stocked with plenty of dishes and cookware. The furniture is very comfortable, and there were several good sized TVs. The decks are all disconnected, amd the pool is on the smaller side, but still big enough for several people to have a good time. Access to the beach was close, and the location was nice and quiet.

Great property
Our extended family of 16 found the property to be enjoyable. The privacy, beautiful view, and easy walk to the beach were additional pluses. The back decks and pool area were very private. The preserve aspect in the back gave us a unique experience to view coastal vegetation and wildlife.

OBX family reunion
We had a great week hanging with family on the beach. House was great and really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Only complaint was the mattresses were stiff and pretty noisy, definitely need to be replaced.

Location was great. Pool and hottub were nice too. We did have a leaky freezer and the tubs took a long time to drain. My only other recommendation is to have more kitchen items (serving spoons for example) but overall we had a great time. It's nice to not have neighbors looking into the pool and hot tub area!
Anonymous U from King George - Posted: 9/12/2022
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your recent stay. The issues you mentioned with the drains and freezer have been addressed, and we are going to update the kitchen inventory as needed. Hopefully we can welcome you and your family back to the OBX again soon, and thank you for sharing your feedback from your recent stay at Fireflies!
