Reviewer: PaulZ

Our experiences with Twiddy over the years have always been top notch and is the first site we go to when searching for a house for our next OBX vacation.

Large selection of quality homes to choose from, attentive, responsive, friendly staff, easy payment process, it simply does not get any better than Twiddy.

Simply put, Twiddy has set the bar for all others to meet.

We have been vacationing on the Outer Banks for 15+ years. When our entire group comes down (25+), we vacation in July. If it works s adults only, we are there in September. Almost all of our rentals have been through Twiddy. Not really many issues with the houses. One year Twiddy had to replace the entire ac system on our check in day, and we were still in by 5 pm. This year, the office gave me the key at 9am and asked that we just wait for the text before going to the house. They wanted to save us the trouble if going back to the rental office, houses are always clean and well maintained. The fact that I really can’t comment on issues we have had says it all!

My family and I came down for a great week in Duck and rented through Twiddy & Company once again. e loved the house and the people working for Twiddy were all very friendly and professional. Our first day there, we discovered that wasps had moved into the hot tub and we weren't comfortable using it. Twiddy sent an exterminator out within hours of our call and the problem was quickly resolved.

This is a great company to deal with and I always recommend them to anyone who vacations on the Outer Banks.

Rating: Excellent As Always. Twiddy Never Dissapoints 9/24/2016

We have stayed with Twiddy and Company many times over the last 15 years and have never once been disappointing. This year was no exception. We arrived early at eh Twiddy Office in Duck and were given an early check-in and a awesome little soft-sided beach cooler with a magnetic top.

We drove up to our vacation rental in Sanderling and loved the house and location. We stayed in Carolina Dreamin' I which is a great house and has a nice view of the ocean from the upper deck. We had two weeks of good beach weather and an excellent vacation. We did have one issue with the outside of the house where the washing machine drains and they sent a maintenance person out to handle it the same day. Top notch customer service. They are the best of the best.

MY family and I have never vacationed together before. My father a Vietnam Vet/retired coal miner and my mother a retired nurse have never been able to afford to pay for a vacation so this year we pulled all of our money together and decided to stay in the Outer Banks at the Almost Heaven I rental home. We were very much looking to spend time together for a week at the end of June-beginning of July. My Dad had a full knee replacement surgery last fall 9/2013 that had its share of pain and setbacks, At times the only thing that would make him smile is knowing that we were all going away on vacation in the summer! I too was very much looking forward to celebrating my 39th bday on 7/3 and my recovery from an on the duty motorcycle accident i was in as a police officer that left me with 21 surgeries and a bum leg. Sadly our grandiose expectations were deflated by a series of events that I will divulge on in the rest of this review. Upon our arrival several of the beds were missing sheets, a door handle was broken, a towel rack was broken, several rooms were missing clean towels, the bathrooms were disgusting, (water/other stains on the sinks, pubic hair on the sink, floors and toilets, sand/hair in the shower basin) and to top it off there was black dog hair on the bed in one of the bedrooms! It was as if the home had never been cleaned between tenants.The carpeted floors of the home were heavily stained, heavily trafficked and in obvious worn /poor condition. I was upset more so because I was asked to pay an extra $400+ dollars to have the carpets steam cleaned as a result of have 3 additional dogs stay for the week. My dogs, however, only stayed for 2 nights and left on Monday because of an issue with the faulty fire alarm system that I will discuss further on in the review. My dogs never defecated, urinated or destroyed anything in the home. I was honest and forthright with the owners that I needed to bring 3 additional dogs. I was also upfront and forthright about the dogs early departure along with my partner and our 2 children on Monday. I am certain that the fee that i paid for the extra dogs was for the owners to get the carpets steam cleaned at my expense! With all of this being said, We had to call the maid service to come back and clean the bathrooms and bring us towels and sheets on the first day.Seeing that the place was not cleaned we vacuumed the floors and laundered all of the bedding in each of the rooms.This was day 1 of our much anticipated trip to the Outer Banks! Also, on our first day the alarm kept going off intermittently throughout the day causing my sisters 2 young children to cry/get upset and get all of our dogs anxious and upset. We had maintenance come out and were inconvenienced again to wait and stay with the them for about 2 hours as they went room to room checking the faulty alarm system. When maintenance left, we assumed that the problem had been resolved. Day 2 arrives with the alarms going off again intermittently all day long. Again maintenance had to be called to deal with the problem. They arrived, repeated the previous days process by going room to room to find the problem then left leaving us thinking the problem was resolved. Day 3 arrives and once again the alarm is going off like the 2 days before. The maintenance team now advises us to pull out the batteries of the alarms when they go off because they did not know what was causing the faulty alarm problems. Maybe the faulty alarm system had to do with wiring of the various cameras mounted outside/inside of the home. The decals posted on several glass windows/doors advises tenants that the cameras record both audio and video footage that can/will be used against you. We were very uncomfortable with this invasion of privacy and called Twiddy. They advised us to cover up the cameras if we didn't feel comfortable with them? Really, these were the cameras that we were physically seeing, what about all of the other ones that we suspec

We've used Twiddy three out of the last 5 years and will be using them again in September.

Their service has been excellent - our first year with them there was an A/C issue in the house - they had a technician onsite within two hours of the call and he was able to clean some contacts and the problem was totally resolved.

All three of those rentals were in the same house in Pine Island. This year we'll be staying in Ocean Lakes and we're really looking forward to it.

We have rented through Twiddy & Company for many years and have never once been disappointed in any way. How many companies can you say that about? Very few. Great people and great vacation rentals make all the difference. I highly recommend them.

We rented two different houses this year with Twiddy and they both met our expectations and beyond. Great service, service calls answered on time.

Have used them multiple times over the years and have always found the service to be excellent. We've stayed in at least five different Twiddy homes and all have met our expectations.

We have been renting through Twiddy for the past six years. Always a good experience, linens included, homes clean and in good repair. Can't say enough good things about them. We love this company!

Reviewer: Laurie Lincoln

I have used Twiddy for our past 3 vacations at the Outer Banks. Their Customer Service is fantastic, quick to respond, great communication. The Twiddy website is also wonderful. Great search tools, photos and maps. The only thing I wish they had more of was floor plans for the homes.

Rating: Twiddy Still Great 9/17/2007
Reviewer: Michelle

Twiddys service is still great. The problem this year was the house condition, very dirty, needed a good cleaning. We rented the same house last year May 06 and it was great, this year spiders, cobwebs, dust everywhere, the stove was plain just NASTY. I left feedback in the rental book and left it with Twiddy, I hope the owners get it. I wonder if they know how the cleaning crew is doing. We still had a great vacation and made loads of memories to hold dear to our heart.

We stayed with Twiddy & Company again this year and are glad we did. The check in was easy, the house was better than expected, and every detail was handled flawlessly. I recommend Twiddy & Company to friends and family without hesitation.

Reviewer: Gina

We have used Twiddy every time. The website is easy to use, the homes are well maintained and the staff is pleasant! This year we have added a new twist - instead of renting from Twiddy - we have them managing our new home. So far so good, Twiddy is a great resource for both renters and owners!

Rating: Best on the Beach 4/4/2005
Reviewer: Missy Morgan

We have been vacationing at the Outer Banks for 6 years and have tried many realtors. Twiddy is number one in our book. Every home we rented from them has been very clean, stocked well, and the people are very friendly. Also, if you have a pet, they do not charge you a fee. It is all-inclusive. I highly recommend them!

After 12 years with Kitty Dunes we found a new cottage in 2003 that was listed by Twiddy. We were due to start our 2 weeks on Sunday, September 21. Just so happened that Isabel passed through a few days prior. Twiddy kept us up to date on what was happening. On Sunday, at about 3:30pm Twiddy e-mailed us and told us that our cottage was ready for occupancy after 6:00pm Sunday. They told us not to expect the cottage to be throughly cleaned or the beds to be made. They also told us to bring our own linens and towels. (The made up beds and the furnished linens and towels were part of the rental contract). Of course these minor inconveniences did not matter to us.

When we arrived early Monday morning (1:30am) we found the cttage cleaned, the beds made and a supply of clean linens and towels, as well as a supply of bagged ice in the freezer. Under the circumstances, we feel that Twiddy came through with flying colors. The rental agents were extremely helpful and pleasant.
