Wonderful Spot for a Big Families
This house was a beautiful, exclusive spot for big families to hang out and enjoy each other and the views. I planned a beautiful family reunion and every one complimented me on the location, house, and destination. 10 out of 10. The Property Manager was great. He was very attentive and responsive with any questions that I had. Thank you for fantastic time!
A perfect house for a perfect wedding
I keep telling all of my friends that I had the perfect wedding, and I did. In no small part, it was because of our accommodations at Ocean Spray. I knew I wanted to be married on the west end of Holden Beach, and I found this house to be by far the best option for us. The house was perfectly suited for bringing two families together for an extended stay. There were plenty of areas for congregating, inside and out, plus there were treasured spots where you could disappear and be alone for a while. The kitchen was great for making large meals, which was a nightly occurrence for us. As for the wedding day, there is no prettier part of the beach on which to be married. Even the access from the house made a lovely entrance onto the beach. And we enjoyed a beautiful reception poolside afterwards. Also, Craig was very helpful before and during our stay. All in all, it was a great vacation and we will definitely return the next time we put together a large group.
Our stay at Oceanspray was amazing. Craig (owner) was in contact with us prior to, during and after our stay. Everything was even better than pictured and described. We were a party of 21 and there was more than enough space for everyone. Each night we had "chef wars" and the kitchen easily accommodated our cooking and seating needs. Craig had multiple pool companies on-site immediately when an issue with the pool arose. Gail, from beach butlers NC, was also an asset getting all of our details met. One small complaint, that I was aware of (stated in the paperwork) prior to arriving, a 12 bed/bath house and no toilet paper. Our amazon delivery (that had household supplies) was late , so a trip to the store was needed immediately.
We loved our stay! And hope to return soon! Thank you Craig!
Our group of about 30 people, all ages, had a wonderful time. The wedding was held Sunday afternoon on the first floor. Caterer Lori Eaton was amazing!! The guests were impressed with her food and asking for her contact information. She was wonderful to work with.
The owner, Craig, was equally as welcoming and helpful with our many questions. It was so much fun!!
We had a nice time despite issues with the house.
When we reserved this property, the listing stated that this home was "new construction" but unfortunately when we arrived we realized this was not the case. This home is over 10 years old. It is a nice, large home in a beautiful area but the home does show the wear and tear of a home that is a decade old. They have since removed that statement online in its listing.
When we arrived, we quickly noticed there was a lot of water damage to the ceilings and walls on the 2nd floor. It looked like someone had tried to fix but the leak hadn't been resolved and there was additional damage along with some mold and mildew spots. The owner was aware of this issue but had not informed me of this issue PRIOR to my arrival and seemed annoyed that I was unhappy with the situation. He did get a maintenance person over quickly to paint over the mildew /mold spots with Kilz which was appreciated.
There were also several other issues that needed repairing which included:
- Fridges had large dents on the outside doors and two inside drawers were broken
- Pink marker stains and rips on bedroom comforter
- Tape put down between the carpet and tile
- Broken vertical blinds
- Shower door completely off track and damaged
- Holes in wall
- Top oven and 2 stovetop burners not working
- Two faucets needing repair
Again the owner quickly sent out people to make these repairs but it was an inconvenience. To have people in an out while we were trying to enjoy our vacation. The top floor hardwoods are completely scratched up and faded, the furniture and baseboards are banged up. Just be aware when paying a premium to rent this home that there may be maintenance issues and the house has some wear and tear. I am glad the owner removed "new construction" after we called and complained and I hope he makes other much-needed updates to the listing and property.
The home does have great space for a large family gathering, the pool is wonderful and the deck space is awesome as well. The neighborhood is lovely and the beach area is too.
Glad you had a nice time and very sorry for any inconvenience. We did have a water leak that was repaired the week before you arrived and as it turns out the drywall needed a little more time to completely dry before the final coat of paint. As you mentioned most of the things listed were repaired right away and the ones that needed more time are being taken care on the off-season. I also have hired a person to walk the house between rentals to try to catch any issues in advance. I look forward to having you back! Craig
