Rating: Will never rent from Surf or Sound again 6/16/2020
Reviewer: shobbs73

Will never rent from this unethical company again. After promising a cash refund for our reservation due to the closing of Dare County to visitors in April, Surf or Sound went back on their decision and on May 29, 2020 issued an email stating they will no longer issue cash refunds even though they had been doing so previously. They sent an email out on April 3, 2020 giving us the option of a refund if the county was not reopened by the end of our reservation. We selected the refund option offered in the email, but after not being able to get in touch with them via email or phone we booked another wonderful vacation through Outer Beaches Realty and decided we would see if we could get an answer in person at the office when we were in town. This is when we were told they were no longer going to offer cash refunds. This goes against the North Carolina Real Estate Commission opinion and the State Attorney General is investigating as well. Company would not answer phone or respond to emails when we tried to inquire about our refund. After reading through the other reviews it looks like even before this incident the company has been on a pretty steep decline in quality and service since 2017. There are plenty of other reputable and responsible rental companies on Hatteras Island. We will NEVER rent with Surf or Sound again.

Never had a person that wasn't very nice or a issue that wasn't handled in my favor.

Reviewer: Avon Lady

There were a lot of bad reviews about Surf or Sound Realty but we were very happy with their service. We arrived in Avon quite early (7:30 AM), did some shopping, got lunch & gave them a call. They told us to stop into the local office to see if the house was ready. We did and the house was, they gave us the keys and told us to enjoy our vacation & call if we needed anything. Thankfully we didn’t! The house was very nice. Some shower issues in one bathroom, but there were only 2 of us and 3 bathrooms so we were fine! Booked with them again for 2015!

We went to another realty company once, due to reserving late, and Surf or Sound not having the house we needed. We'll never do it again. If surf or sound can't meet our needs we'll just stay home. they made our vacation perect everytime.
Look Forward to next year.
