Not worth the money

Overall Rating
1
Very cute house, but the water issue is much more serious than stated in description. The water in house when we arrived was not suitable for showering or washing dishes or clothes. Maintenance did come and try to remedy the situation but then we spent a week smelling concentrated chlorine and dealing with yellow water. The house is directly located behind two restaurants and the odor of dumpster garbage is overwhelming. There is also a derelict school bus sitting in front yard next door along with other junk piled up along the entry road.
2022 Manager's Update:
We are happy to report that Bird’s Eye View has had new owners since your visit in 2020. This home does have a filtered, treated groundwater system. Among the many upgrades made by the new owners is a comprehensive servicing of the water treatment equipment and a thorough water treatment service plan is now in place. In addition, we are so pleased to report that 2022 guests will experience many upgrades that have brought this adorable home back to life. All new mattresses, bedding, pillows, and fresh paint. The kitchen has been fully stocked with all new items and new light fixtures have been added. There are new landscaping and driveway upgrades. The road issues that you mentioned may have been due to Hurricane Dorian in September 2019. Residents have since worked diligently to clean up residual debris. While the home is located behind a brewery/restaurant, we are happy to report that we did not receive additional negative reviews regarding odors in the 2020/2021 season. We are confident that guests will enjoy all the updates at Bird's Eye View!

2020 Manager's Response:
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Bird’s Eye View – it is a sweet little house and we are so sorry that you were unhappy with the house. Bird's Eye View does have a filtered, treated ground water system, but unfortunately the sulfur smell and discoloration is worse at some times than at others. The homeowners do provide a complimentary 5 gallon bottle of spring water for their guests to use for coffee, tea, brushing your teeth etc, and more can be purchased at the Variety Store should you need more. We apologize that you found the the neighboring property so disreputable, and wish we could control the surroundings, but unfortunately our hands are tied. Perhaps a privacy fence would help block that visual, and we will definitely make that suggestion to the homeowners. The smell you noticed may have been from the convenience site located directly across Highway 12 and behind the Sheriff’s office. Depending upon the wind direction (usually south southwest in the summer) that odor can carry quite a ways, but both eateries are very conscientious about their neighbors and do their best to avoid such issues. No matter the causes, it sounds like you encountered the “perfect storm” of bad scenarios and for that we do apologize. We hope that you were still able to enjoy the beach and all that Ocracoke has to offer and we look forward to seeing you and your family again soon. Please feel free to give us a call next time you are ready to vacation on Ocracoke and we will be happy to help you find a more suitable property for your family get-away. March 1, 2022: We are so pleased to report that the new owners have done a fabulous job bringing this adorable home back to life. All new mattresses, bedding, pillows, fresh paint, landscaping and driveway repair, fully stocked kitchen with all new items, new light fixtures and most important of all they have worked out the kinks in the water system. While the property does still have treated, filtered ground water, the equipment has been serviced and they have tweaked the blend of necessary chemicals and salt so as to maintain and provide the best quality water possible. We know you will enjoy all the updates at Bird's Eye view!
