"This was our second time at Simon Says and it was fabulous! All the years we’ve vacation in OBX and this house is hands down the best! This year there was new bedding, fresh paint, new deck furniture, and an immaculately clean house waiting for us! Hard to imagine staying anyplace else after a week here!!"
"Simon Says is a beautiful house with wonderful amenities. The living room, dinning room, kitchen were great with plenty of room for twelve of us. The bedrooms were spacious with lots of bathrooms. The pool, hot tub, decks, and other outdoor spaces were great. The owners have taken great care to decorate the house with beautiful furniture and high quality decor. The best house we stayed in at Corolla Light in 11 years!!! We will be there again next year."
"We have enjoyed vacationing in this home for the past few years. Twiddy has made the process go very smoothly. We will be back."
"This home was perfect for our families and kids! We loved the location to all of the amenities and the beach access."
I'm so happy you enjoyed your vacation in our home. We do work at keeping it updated and in good repair. I hope you will vacation with us in the future.
"House was great for our beach week! Plenty of space for everyone to spread out, great kitchen, lots of fun games in the house for the kids, comfortable beds, beautiful pool/deck, and terrific location! Only things that could make it even better were to treat the exterior insects & power wash. There were a lot ants, spiders, and midges (we know there isn’t anything that can be done about midges!) outside on the decks, rendering them impossible to enjoy. The ants were also in the kitchen and master bathroom. Hoping to return next year!"
So happy you enjoyed your vacation in our home, and I'm sorry for your insect troubles. We do power wash the home at the start of the season and have regular inside pest control treatments, but I think this year was especially bad for midges. Please do not hesitate to contact our rental company, Twiddy, in the future if you experience issues such as these. They can hose down the decks or send out vendors for pest control.
"We have been coming to Corolla Light for a number of years, we absolutely loved our family vacation in Simon Says!! This was the perfect house for the span of ages within the family as well as in the perfect location in the community. I LOVED how organized everything is, having the two dishwashers was perfect for large family meals. The abundance of games in the house allowed us to keep kids busy and the pool/hot tub was a hit for all after a day at the beach!! The deck furniture on the top floor was so nice to sit on in the evening. We hope to return in the future, thanks for helping to make our week a memorable one!!"
So happy you enjoyed your vacation in our home. Thank you for all the kind comments - especially the caps comment on organization - I LOVE that you appreciated my efforts to organize!
"Home was very nice. we did notice some ants on the first floor and in the master bath and thought we would bring to your and owners attention."
Thank you for your review and I'm happy you enjoyed our home. Unfortunately ants can be a recurring issue, even with our routine exterminating service, but Twiddy will come out to treat if brought to their attention. Please don't hesitate to call them if anything during the course of your future vacations should arise. (Thanks for this notice and we will have the ants taken care of for future guests)
"The house is great. We love it. There are two things though that could be done to make it even better. First, some of the white trim on the exterior needs to be repainted - especially on the back of the house by the pool. Second, all four racks within the two dishwashers need to be replaced. They are broken in certain areas and have started to massively rust. This causes rust flakes to accumulate in the cups & dishes after they have been washed. That said, however, we absolutely love this house!"
Thank you for the very kind review, and I'm so happy you enjoyed your time in our home. We purchased 2 new dishwashers, and have replaced much of the trim on the exterior that had started to rot. I hope you are able to stay with us again in the future.
"Very nice, cozy home with easy access to beach. The middle bedrooms do share a bathroom, but it’s in the hall, not between rooms. The second dishwasher was broke all week and two TVs didn’t work. I Would stay again at some point."
Thank you for the review. We have purchased 2 new dishwashers and I'm sorry that you had only one working during your stay. We also recently replaced the large TV in the living room. Twiddy will handle any maintenance issues that arise during your stay, and would have arranged for the repair of the TV's that weren't working if you had notified them. I see no report of that in our files, and am sorry if you had TV problems during your stay. I hope you will stay again with us in the future.
"The house is great and in an amazing location! We all had a wonderful week."
Thank you for the very nice review, and I'm happy you enjoyed your stay at our home. We have put lot's of TLC in this season: new hottub, basement sofa, main level TV, 2 dishwashers, washer/dryer, & new grill. Thank you for reporting the loose railing - I know Twiddy fixed that. They are great about responding to any maintenance issues during a guest's stay. Hope you can stay with us again in the future!
"We have been staying in this house for several years. Nice to see some updates each year. Enjoy having the pool especially during these times of social distancing."
Thank you for the nice review! We appreciate you as a repeat guest and are happy to hear that you and your family enjoy our home. We continue to make updates, and have just purchased a new hot tub, lower level sofa, great room smart TV and have plans to update some of the appliances before next season.
