My husband and I decided last minute on a Friday night to take a mini vacation for the weekend. By 9am the next morning we arrived to the beach home. We had never been to the Outer Banks and weren't sure what it would be like to stay with an owner on site. We have both taken many vacations including beaches all over, but never anything that even came close to this one! This is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST vacation either of us have ever experienced. The home is beautiful and so private. The beach is gorgeous and even on a holiday weekend there was 100 yards or more between us and the people beside us on the beach. We fished every day whatever time we wanted and never had to worry about people getting close to our lines. Seeing wild horses walk the beach and dolphins swimming not far from shore was awesome. The best way to describe this place is "a little slice of heaven." We even extended our vacation an extra night last minute because we couldn't stand to leave. As perfect as the town of Corolla, the house, and the beach was, nothing made our time there more memorable than Miss Penny. She was definitely the very best part!! The kindness she showed us, the laughs we shared, and the friendship we gained has made this our most desired vacation destination. We were planning our next trip on our second day there. We will be going back again this summer and hopefully many summers to come.
