FFR314 - Just Wright - OBX Beachfront Condo

FFR305 - Carolina on My Mind - Premier Oceanfront Condo, Prime location Pool Spa

We really enjoyed our visit and loved the condo. The only thing I would add is to write where the lint filter is for the dryer. There is a note that reminds you do clean it, but we looked everywhere on the machine and could not find it! We would have called, but it was the next to last day, so we weren't that worried about it.

FFR309 - Beach Bliss - Top Floor, Private hot tub, Endless Views First Flight Retreat

Amazing location and amenities. The condo was exactly as pictured and offered the best views Wonderful location to many restaurants, fun and grocery stores. Our first family trip of 3 was definitely memorable. Our only issue was the air conditioner thermostat was shut off early morning of our check out in 90 degree temperatures packing which was a hiccup in the trip. Unsure the reason for it automatically shutting off but was minor in the overall trip experience. Overall we definitely hope to visit again next year and we couldn’t have asked for a better place for our first Outer Banks experience. Thank you First Flight.

FFR212 - At Last

This was by far the cleanest unit we had stayed in at FFR. Very impressed with the cleanliness and clean smell as we checked in to the unit.This condo was beautifully decorated and well maintained. Everything was in good working order. We enjoyed the soft plush towels and all the little extras that were that to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. We are looking forward to coming back in September.

FFR301 - The Beach's Condo

Location was a huge positive, close to good eating, shopping and local attractions. The Beach's condo had everything to make a home away from home.

FFR108 - Max's Sandcastle

This was our first trip to the OBX and we were very pleased with the condo and amenities. The proximity to the beach was awesome and we found the pool area to be relaxing and pleasant as well.

FFR108 - Max's Sandcastle

I keep coming back to FFR because it's so well maintained, its location is ideal, and the beach never disappoints.
