First Flight Retreat Reviews:
This was our 2nd time staying at First Flight Retreat and we love the location and all of the comfort of the condos. The kitchen had a great setup and the living space is wonderful. We will certainly plan on staying at First Flight Retreat again. -Guest
Overall we loved our trip, the condo and being right on the beach/ocean. I was concerned of the view being on the 1st floor, but we still had a great view of the ocean. If we come back to NC for vacation, we would stay here again.
Location, well-equipped, pet-friendly feature, perfect for two people and a dog!
We love that First Flight Retreat has so many pet-friendly properties. The location can't be beat and the condos are just the right size for two of us plus a dog. It's so hard to find nice, new and clean properties that allow pets, so we really appreciate that First Flight lets us bring our dog to enjoy the beach as well. We also love the easy access to the beach from the first floor and the interior corridors
The location for our first time in the Outer Banks was very convenient. The room felt like home. The kitchen had a lot of utensils & pots for cooking!
loved the location-we always stay in duck each fall,this was our second week this fall and really loved everything about the condo and surrounding area
Location central to OBX. Great view. Everything great and I really appreciated how efficiently the details were handled...didn't have to stop off and get a key and no difficulties with parking, departing. Beautifully furnished and loads of amenities
The location and that we were right on the beach. I also like the size of our condo. We had a 1 bedroom and I was concerned it would be small, but it was perfect for my, my husband and dog
View & ease to get to the beach... It was extremely easy to get an infant, toddler and beach items to the beach. Keyless door entry was a nice feature too.
We really enjoyed our second stay at First Flight. We're looking forward to returning next year, too (If not sooner.) J Scott Spiker - Solan. OH
The condo was perfect in every way. We had no problems and loved every minute of our stay. I would say that you are doing everything right! We would recommend you highly to anyone who ask. Gina and Tim Wicks-Frank
We have stayed at First Flight several times. We love the oceanfront condos. It is the perfect condo for our small family. Sally Zabel - Glen Allen, VA
Great place. Top notch. Dale Rhoton - Cincinnati, OH
My family and I enjoyed our First Flight vacation from the moment we arrived until the sad moment when it was time to depart. Your organization has developed an efficient, high quality, attention to detail method of providing accommodations that are stress free and enjoyable. Doris, our reservationist was so helpful and pleasant. We couldn't have been happier with our entire experience and plan to return one day soon. We have already told many friends and associates about our great stay and have recommended them to your well organized website. Cindy Easton - Arnold, MD
This is the second time I rented at First Flight. I was happy to see that the facility has been well maintained since my first visit. I love the flexibility to rent for a partial week and that it is pet friendly because who wants to leave their best friend at home? Susan Zolan - Stow, OH
Was looking to come in the off season as well. Thank you - the condo was excellently furnished and a great location. Julie Greenwood - Newark, DE
We had a great stay. This is our second time staying at First Flight and stayed in 2 different condos. Both very clean and equipped fine for me. Like the walk out to the beach. Great for people with children or singles. Not a lot of noise in the hallway. Always had a covered parking spot, which is a plus. Cindy Barnett - Baltimore MD
This is our first time renting a condo while on vacation. We had a great experience. We would love to come back. The website is great. The condo was exactly the way it appeared on the site. The complex is quiet and clean. The staff on the phone was friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed ourselves. Joseph Durso West Haven, CT
We completely enjoyed our week at the First Flight Retreat Condos. We had never rented a condo for previous vacations. This surpassed all our expectations even though we had thoroughly researched your web site. The unit was nicely decorated and the kitchen was very functional. We have told everyone about how nice it was and that it was much better than a hotel room. Arlene Mitchell Milford, CT
What fabulous place ! Great location, extremely clean, friendly staff. Loved the emails prior to arrival and the wealth of information on the website. The storage areas for beach gear are a wonderful idea. I’ll be back next year.!! Jane LaRocco Garden City, NY
Perfect accommodations for couple plus baby. Loved easy beach access and pool. Keyless entry was very convenient. Very spacious, comfortable beds. Very clean when we arrived. Rebecca Taylor Winchester, VA
We had a wonderful time, and LOVED the Outer Banks. Our condo was perfect! No complaints whatsoever. We want to come again, maybe next year, for a longer stay.
Dealing with First Flight was a delight. Doris was very helpful, and would certainly use you guys again.Thanks for making our vacation enjoyable. Betty Smith Asheville, NC
We really enjoyed our Columbus Day week stay at First Flight Retreat. From the beautiful view of the ocean to the quality of the kitchen and mattresses we were very pleased with the facility. The porch area is fantastic, but I did notice that the screen door is getting sticky/rusty, which admittedly is unavoidable on ocean-facing metal, so they either need to be sprayed down after every renter or swapped out every year. In addition, the window gussets need to be cleaned too, but we’re talking about minor issues in an otherwise fantastic Patrick MacEnroy Harrison NY
*Loved having the opportunity to reserve midweek to midweek !!! We have been coming to the Outer Banks for almost 50 years and have never seen that option available. I have suggested to 3 families for this reason alone.! -- Barb & Jim S. Massillion, OH
The condo was fabulous!! It exceeded our expectations. The beach access was very convenient. Update your online photos of the property. The current photos do not do it justice. -- Jeffrey R. Vienna, VA
Great stay. One of the best vacations I have ever had. Will look into staying again soon. Bravo ! Job well done. -- Kierstin H. Elyria, OH
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with First Flight Rentals. The key things that were beneficial to us were 1.) being able to rent a condo for less than a week, 2) keyless entry and easy check-in 3) being able to stay right on the beach 4) having the pool 5) modern amenities. -- Terry R. Richmond, VA
We truly enjoyed our trip & appreciate how great the place was. We brought my folks from Nebraska and their one true criteria was ocean front, not view. Yours was great. -- Dawn J. Plymouth, MN
We loved our stay at the condo, not too crowded, nice facility. We usually stay at the nicest hotels, but his has them beat. We will never stay at a hotel again. -- Debra B Martinsburg, WV
We were very please with the quality of the condo, the view from the balcony, the ample parking & the beach access. It was a wonderful vacation…we also appreciated that we didn’t have to do a week long rental. --Amber S. Yorkville, IL
Sea Ranch II Reviews
Carla was helpful during reservation and check-in. She convinced me to rent when she said I could get luggage help. Andy was great! Moved us in and out and got Carla to give us a room near elevator. I am on oxygen and it's hard for me to walk. These two are great PR for your business. I have already recommended SRII to a friend here in Fredericksburg. Love having a restaurant on site. Ate there once. Just ok, but thankful to have it there.
I loved when we opened the door to enter the unit we could see straight through to the beach! The enclosed balcony was nice and we had everything we needed for a relaxing week!
"...been coming to Sea Ranch II since 1986. Balconies of Sea Ranch [are] perfect for us - rain or shine. We feel safe there." - Young from Xena, Ohio
"True beach front location. We enjoyed our visit and we would be happy to visit again!" - Jones from Locust Grove, GA
" Loved the view, layout was perfect." - Cohen's from Howell, NY
