Overall it was a great experience! One thing that caused some anxiety in our family was, we killed a brown recluse spider in the kids bedroom. You might want to get an exterminator.
House was beautiful and in a great location!4

The family certainly enjoyed our stay. It was great to have a view of the ocean even though were were one street back.

We brought our own linens. The information for the type of beds in each bedroom was not correct. The master bedroom has a king bed rather than a queen.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation! We have updated our information regarding bed sizes. We look forward to seeing you again!

We enjoyed a great weekend here for our daughters graduation. The elevator was a plus with the grandparents being here. The house was beautiful and in a convenient location and there was plenty of room for the kids of all ages to enjoy. We had an issue with the bathroom lights and the gentleman came immediately and fixed it within 10 minutes.

Hello Amy, Congratulations on your daughter graduating, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay and were able to accommodate everyone in your party. We strive in being available at all times in case you need us and hope to see you back at the beach soon!

This is the second year our family has stayed at The Better Life, and we plan to return in 2121. Plans can't be finalized until grandchildrens'camp dates, VBS dates and other obligations are on calendars. The only issue we had this year is the bunk beds seemed to be a little unstable. I reported this to the staff and they said they would have maintenance check them out.

Nice place for 74 degrees

Review of stay from 2019-05-09 to 2019-05-12
Overall satisfaction
My family arrived from Florida to celebrate my daughter's college graduation from UNCW- just three days. We had a good time... the main floor and decks were very nice and enjoyed by the entire group.
To give this a 5 star rating:
-single beds were very uncomfortable even for kids
-most of the bed pillows were old/unclean
-the futon in the back room needed cleaning badly or cover replaced
-more plates, bowls, and utensils
-the cooling temperature limited to 74 degrees was a problem; if guests want to be in 70 degrees, that should be permitted. I will not book this house in the summer again due to this limitation which should be in the listing detail.
Manager response on 2019-06-27 - Response from Bryant Real Estate
Julie we appreciate your review and feedback. We apologize that you found the pillows and futon not clean. The housekeeping staff has been alerted to check these items along with the quantity of dishes and utensils. I discussed the thermostat with the owner and we are unclear on the limit to 74 degree, you may turn the thermostat down to your comfort, we have asked that you don't turn it way down to 60 degrees and freeze the unit, but we want you to feel comfortable. I also spoke with the owner about the twin bed and he is going to look into that. Congratulations to your daughter and I am glad you had a nice time. Please come back and visit us next year if you get the chance.

We really enjoyed the home. Beautiful place with a great upper deck. I will say that 2 of the shower heads (2nd floor bathrooms) were terrible and need to be replaced. I think it's easy for them to get corroded at the beach, but nonetheless, they were terrible and need replacing. I would also recommend a slightly better set of knives. I know you don't put your best stuff in a rental, but those were horrible. I almost hurt myself using them. Also, it would be nice if the ice maker/water filtration system worked on the fridge. Some of the pillows and mattresses were shot. So I think a few little upgrades/maintenance is in order. Otherwise, the house was in good condition and we enjoyed our stay.

We rented this home to accommodate 8 children and 4 adults for a family fishing trip over Thanksgiving break. This was a beautiful home with plenty of room for us all. It was an easy walk to the beach access or the pier. The board games and foosball table kept the kids occupied. There were ample kitchen tools for our meals. The mattress in the master was extremely comfortable, probably one of the best I’ve ever slept on in a rented home. Check in was easy and the management company kept in contact via the easy to use app. I would definitely rent again!
