Rating: Good service, nice homes, fair prices 10/22/2017
Reviewer: ThomasTiger

We used Elan for the first time this year and had a good experience. They were prompt in answering questions before we booked, were friendly through the booking process and were helpful when we picked up the keys. (The mainland pickup location, with their Summer BBQ is a plus!)

We had a couple maintenance issues during our stay and Elan sent someone over quickly to address.

The only complaint we had was with the cleaner, who was not done by 4pm. We rolled up to let our little one use the house’s bathroom and the young man cleaning the house was not done. Once we arrived he started to rush a bit and the house was probably not as clean as he should have left it.

Rating: We would not use any other going forward 10/5/2017
Reviewer: Ron Reed

We have been coming to the Outer Banks for 26 years, and have experienced a number of rental companies. Elan has by far been the best. We would not use any other going forward.

Rating: The service has been the best 10/4/2017
Reviewer: Holly Bandish

Our family has been vacationing on the Outer Banks for 9 years, sometimes twice a year. We have used Elan Vacation Rentals twice now, and our rental properties and the service has been the best we have experienced on the Outer Banks!

Rating: The rooms are spacious and the bright 7/4/2017

Our family has been gathering on the Outer Banks and staying at this beautiful home for the past 5 years and we couldn't be happier with our home away from home. The owner/property manager does an amazing job of maintaining this property and it's always fun to return and see what is new appliances, furnishings, accessories, cookware we are never disappointed! As other reviewers have noted, this house is both CLEAN and organized. The rooms are spacious and the bright, open layout is perfect for our group. We have joked that the only thing missing is an elevator but as long as we can climb the stairs we will be back! Thank you for the wonderful memories.

This home was just perfect for our mini family reunion of 15. It's like two houses in one which offered a great deal of privacy on one hand, yet a wonderful common area in which everyone could gather. The pool table and other recreation areas are a huge plus! The house is stocked with just about anything that you could need. Just bring your clothing and you are set! The furniture is very comfortable and clean and makes you feel right at home. The beach is just a short walk and the approach from the walkway is breath taking. If you want lots of space and comfortable beach living, this is the place for you!

Rating: Yes, we would rent again 4/6/2017

Avra Beach House was a perfect vacation home. Our married children traveled from Seattle, Indianapolis, and Knightdale, NC with their children and we traveled from Spokane, WA. The clean home, heated indoor pool, hot tub, ocean views, and sandy beach were top notch. Any issues were addressed immediately without any problems. Having 2 washers and dryers was a plus. Renting bikes, playing golf at Kilmarlic Golf Club, flying kites and having a photographer come to the beach home added to our family memories. Yes, we would rent again and hopefully, we can next year. We have 2 active duty air force family members who may deploy this year, so we have to schedule around that.

We stayed in Coucher du Soleil with Elan Vacations. All in all it was a great house, but Elan Vacations was responsible for most of that. The male worker (didn't catch his name) at the front desk was so great. Because of him we will only rent from Elan for all of our vacations! He was one of the best most personal rental agency people we have ever dealt with. Our 85 year old grandmother truly adored him.

Our house was clean and just exceeded our expectations. We had one door handle that was broken but once we informed Elan they had a maintenance man there in less than an hour to fix it. The windows are VERY clean! Birds came flying into them at such speeds that they kill themselves. :( The second floor window has blood and feather on the outside and the ground under the window has a small pool of blood and feathers. We tossed the dead birds into the brush for the foxes.

Again, we just want to thank Elan for being so helpful this entire trip. Definitely coming back next year!

Reviewer: Jane

We've used Elan for the last four years and are amazed by the level of service. After using another rental company for the previous ten years, the difference was easy to recognize. The home werent is wonderful and the people in the office are friendly and professional.

For our 2007 OBX trip, we used Élan for the first time and would not hesitate using them again. From their great website, to personable staff over the phone and upon arrival, to an exceptional house, these folks know how to do it. Upon picking up our key, hot dogs were grilling out in front of their office along with soda and water...all complimentary. A nice welcome basket was presented to us with our keys and we were allowed early entry, at no additional cost! We also were allowed to ship to their office ahead of time, two cases of special dietary supplies for a special needs child in our group. Yes, Élan is very, very good and we would use them again, no question. One more thing...the house was incredible.

Rating: very satisfied even with a few problems! 8/8/2006
Reviewer: THE BROWN'S

Our family has come to OBX for several years now and have used many different rental companies. We had rented from Elan in the past and were most satisfied with them out of all the other companies that we have used. This past year the home we rented had some problems (freezer didn't freeze, fridge would stay cool,hot tub did not work among a few other problems the home had and we lost several hundred dollars worth of food). We contacted Elan on several occassions and they promptly sent someone out to do what they could to take care of our requests. However, unfortunately most of the problems were due to the Home Owners not keeping their appliances and home in an upkept condition. After 2 days of being unhappy and calling Elan, they offered to move us to a different home. Which was much nicer than the one we were in. Not only that they extended our stay 3 extra days to compensate us for the lost food as well as the disatisfaction that we had in the first home. We were very pleased with the out come of our vacation and look forward to staying with Elan again next year. 299 more days!!!!!

Rating: Extremely happy with Elan 10/13/2004
Reviewer: Jeanette G.

This is the first time that we had rented through Elan, having used another company for years.

Their staff was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. The house was in impeccable condition. We had stayed in it years ago, and was worried about whether it had deteriorated at all. It was actually improved!

Upon checking in, I received a nice welcome basket, as well as sodas and bottled water in the refrigerator at the house.

It was great to be able to pick up the key at 1, and then head right over to the house. We are used to having to wait until 4!

We will definately use Elan again, and highly recommend them!
