“Unkept....”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The house is located very close to town and the beach which we really liked. It is a very spacious house and the rooms are all good sizes. Unfortunately the house is not clean. There were cobwebs everywhere. The vents were pretty dirty and there was some mold noted in the showers. The volleyball court in the backyard is certainly not as it is pictured. It is covered in weeds. I am assuming the previous tenants must have played with water balloons too as there were many balloons on the pool deck.

“Excellent amenities, close to beach and shopping - highly recommended”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We loved Nena's Nook! It sleeps 10 people very comfortably and could sleep more. The amenities are well thought out, modern, and worked well. The beach is a 5 minute walk as are the shops and restaurants. The property is well taken care of and the management responds quickly to requests.

The only cons are minor such as burned out light bulbs and running/broken toilet.

The best amenity is the large dining room table where the whole family can gather around to eat, play games, and make priceless memories. I highly recommend Nena's Nook.

“FilthyNook”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Save yourself the aggravation of renting this home. We are Duck "regulars" and decided to stay in Duck Landing this year. Nenas Nook looked nice enough...or not..
First of all, they would not allow us to check in early even though we offers to pay. We had small children and got in town early. There wasn't anyone there before us but, ok...your house, your rules. Next up were the dirty floors and bathrooms. MOLD and dirt, again, small children. The icing on the cake was the filthy pool that they REFUSED TO CLEAN. OBX Blue (the realtor) said that the owner used his own pool guy so they couldn't help. The owners pool guy came and cursed (literally) my husband and brother in law out before collecting all pool equipment and leaving. The next morning we woke up to find poop, yes poop, in our pool. Hours later and after emailing multiple pictures they sent the pool guy back to shock the pool. Needless to say we were unable to use the pool the entire week and weren't offered so much as an apology. Stuff happens but at least own it...

Management Response
5 Jul 2016
We are disappointed in your comments and feel your last line is telling. As you know the pool cleaner did go to the property and the "cursing" seemed to stem from your party. In fact the pool cleaner recorded part of the interaction as he felt threatened by some in your group. Someone from your group contacted the management company before your departure indicating that the "poop" in the pool was self inflicted and they apologized for others in the party who were out of line. The pool cleaner also received a phone call and an apology. The pool was not out of service for the week, but rather only for the 24 hours that the chemicals had to filter through the system to rid the water of contaminants from the feces.
This is a lovely house (that does not allow early check in), that is very popular and your review is not representative of the experience of others.

“Perfect Location in Duck”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our first time in the OuterBanks. We vacationed with two families and there were 14 of us at the house. There were so many places to be in the house that if you wanted privacy, you could find a nook.
The beach is private for association residents and there is a recreation center with indoor pool, hot tub, gym, ping pong and billiards. The kids loved it there. Have them bring their scooters or skateboards and they can get to/from even faster.
We could walk to the beach and town center in a few minutes. There are two great restaurant/bars at the end of the street - Red Sky Cafe and Roadside Bar and Grille. Excellent food and night life (Roadside has a great backyard bar with an outdoor movie screen, games and live music) all within a very short walk. The Duck Boardwalk area is wonderful at night for sunsets, shopping and ice cream - again, a short walk; this location might be the best in town.
The Sunday check-in was key as traffic on Saturday is heavy. Walmart and Harris Tetter are about a 15 minute drive (without traffic) so getting what you need is easy - there are also many convenience stores in town.
Corolla was a 25 minute drive - beaches there are beautiful and you can see the wild horses. Jockey's Ridge State Park in Nags Head is about 30 minutes away and has great dunes to hike and explore.
We will be back to Duck and to Nena's Nook!
