Another Happy Guest!

“Dear Staff at Carolina Designs Realty, Well here we are again, back home and already dreaming about next year in the Outer Banks!  

As it has been for the last 6 years (4 at #589 Ocean Star) the time spent in your beautiful part of the world was wonderful – peaceful and exhilarating at the same time.  Thank you for all that you do, from the moment we make our first reservation, to when we walk up the steps to our lovely home for the week. The house was immaculate.  Everything we needed was where it was supposed to be.  Outside, the grounds were beautiful.  Your entire staff – office, housekeeping, and maintenance are a joy to work with.  You should all be very proud. Thank you so much for your care and concern that our vacation would be perfect.  It was, and we think Carolina Designs Realty is perfect too!  You really are A+ Southern Hospitality at its best – Bless you all! “
