My 2 sisters and I have been renting @ First Flight for several years, we have always enjoyed our time and love the condos we have been in.

FFR116 - Carolina Dreamin'

FFR staff was friendly, professional, and exceptionally helpful. They even dropped off an Amazon delivery to us. We did report some maintenance issues with the condo but due to the pandemic, we specifically requested FFR wait until we left to make those repairs. Thank you!

This condo is nicely furnished and decorated. Enjoyed the nautical/bird theme.

FFR309 - Beach Bliss

With all of the Covid issues going on, we were a bit nervous about traveling. The condo was so clean we felt like extra time was spent making sure that everything was above and beyond normal. It alleviated any fears we had and allowed us to have a wonderful vacation. It was refreshing to see your company’s commitment. We loved the condo as well as the way it was decorated. The beach area was clean and tidy. We would not hesitate to recommend this condo and your company to anyone.
