Short vacation weekend
We were very happy with our stay at castle in the air. The home was clean and well laid out. We had minor issues at check in that were quickly remedied by the owner. The pool was a great size and the hot tub on the top deck was great to use after dinner. Some furniture is a bit worn and needs to be replaced but I believe they are in the process of updating some things. Our major complaint was with the driveway. It’s not wide enough for two cars to park side by side so we were constantly moving things around to let people out. Overall wonderful stay. I wish we could’ve been there longer. Thanks for the quick communication!!
A wonderful place to stay
What a wonderful place to stay! The house was beautiful and well kept. It has spacious bedrooms and baths, a laundry room, living room and fully stocked kitchen. My daughter was especially impressed with the items stocked for children, from sippy cups to safety gates, high chair to toddler toilet seat.
The house has two wrap-around hewn decks. The second level deck has access to the pool, which we paid extra to heat due to the time of year we vacationed. The upper deck has a hot tub that can be accessed through a sliding door from the upper bedroom. You can climb another set of stairs to a small landing overlooking the housetops, where you can watch the sun rise above the ocean and set over the canopy of trees that is the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge, home to many wild horses.
It is a short two-minute walk to the beach. Our grandson enjoyed walking in the sand and even saw the wild horses on the beach!
We had the opportunity to meet the owner Bill and two of his adult children, and even though they were dealing with a family tragedy, they still took time to make sure our stay was pleasant.
I highly recommend this place, and our family plans to return next year.
Thank you for your thorough description of the many features of Castle in the Air. Having rented houses on the Outer Banks for many years before building Castle in the Air, my Wife and I incorporated all of the best designs we experienced and added all of the features that we wished other houses had available for the four generations of our family that came together for annual reunions each summer at the beach.
I actually taught myself how to use a CAD package so that we could design the house down to the location of each electrical outlet, overhead fan and light fixture. The result is a house with great ocean views and amenities that accomodate the interests of all ages.
We look forward to your return and any suggestions you may have for additional enhancements to Castle in the Air.
Castle in the Air
We have been coming to Bill's home for 3 years now. We love it. The spot is fantastic if you want to be out on the 4x4 beach. We ended up in renting Castle in the Air because Bill was the ONLY owner willing to turn the pool heat on 2 weeks before any of the other homes do. Looking forward to many more stays!
We are very fortunate to have many guests like your family who return to Castle in the Air year after year because you treat the "Castle" as you own home. That treatment is good for us and for the guests who arrive in later weeks.
When stopping by to check on some minor plumbing repairs, we noticed you skimming leaves from the pool. Your care for the property is certainly above and beyond what we would expect from any guests, but we do appreciate your entire family and hope that you will return many times in the future.
I do want to clarify for those who may read our comments in the future that you are referring to the fact that you can literally walk to the 4x4 beach. However, guests do not require 4 wheel drive vehicles to reach Castle in the Air because it is served by asphalt roads maintained by the state of North Carolina and Currituck County.
Area was fantastic, so close to the beach
Thank you Bill for sharing your house with the 11 of us. We had a great week, the house was beautiful and the weather was amazing.
We have often enjoyed family reunions with our own family (4 generations) at Castle in the Air so we understand the benefit of having beach access across the private street which eliminates long walks down the street to reach the beach. Our family also enjoys the many amenities that the community offers (2 community pools, tennis courts, basketball court, shuffleboard, walking trails, biking trails, etc.).
We try very hard to maintain the house in good condition so your comment that it is beautiful is much appreciated.
We are thrilled that you had great weather, too, but we can't take credit or blame for that. We hope you will visit again next year.
Great week and the place was fantastic
Great week and the place was fantastic
Thank you for taking the time to comment on your experience and providing us with your feedback that Castle in the Air was fantastic.
We work hard to keep the house in good condition, and we listen carefully to the feedback of our guests.
close to the beach
House was nice. Very close to the beach. Plenty of room for large family reunion. the only negative is a basic necessity. I have stayed at several vacation homes, averaging 3 -4 each year for weekends or longer over the last few years. This is the first place where I stayed that I had to supply my own toilet paper. With the closest store being several miles away, and the way the roads are set up, it turned into a couple of hours, just to buy some. Owners response: "this isn't a hotel."
Thank you for your decision to stay at Castle in the Air.
We are sorry for the inconvenience you experienced in needing to purchase bathroom tissue. We never heard about this issue until we saw it posted in this review so the response you received was not from the owner.
The local property manager must have advised you that bathroom tissue was not typically supplied for private residences (non-hotels). We have spoken with him and the cleaners so future travelers should not encounter this issue.
Please contact me directly if there is anything more we can do to address your concern. We hope to see you again next year so you can advise us if we have corrected this oversight. /Bill
