Overview

Corolla House Rental Photos and Description

5 Master suites plus den, 5 full/3 half bath, sleeps 10 to 14.

Sunnybank is an Oceanfront Majestic Compound on 3 Elevated Acres located only 2 miles into the 4-wheel drive section of the OBX in the Corolla/Carova area. All 3 buildings come with the rental. Sunnybank is on a 23 foot elevation overlooking the majestic Atlantic Ocean, Currituck Sound, Corolla Lighthouse & the famous Monkey Island and boasts of the best views for 100 miles.

We book fast and are accepting reservations for 2015.

Our new Victorian Estate in the heart of Duck Village is very similar to Sunnybank and has 6 large master bedrooms that sleep 18 people. Website: http://thesaltaire.com

If you need more bedrooms or don't have a 4 wheel drive SUV The Saltaire Mansion is the home for you! Our street has its own private beach access. If you like being within strolling distance of all the best restaurants, shops and sound front boardwalk Saltaire is centered in the heart of the Famous Duck Village .

Both our homes have a Friday to Friday rental weeks in order to save you wasted hours in the weekend traffic. The entire island (400,000+) turns over on Sat & Sun and is funneled into 2 roads. You'll coast in on Friday, do your shopping and be hanging around the pool while the other 400,000 are stuck in traffic.

The rate you see is the full total that you pay. We do not add on another 20 % of taxes and service fees like other companies, we have already built that into our pricing so that what you see is what you pay.

Sunnybank is 10 minutes from the Food Lion shopping complex offering unlimited shopping, restaurants, bars, golf, etc. The local gas station/store can be accessed in less than 5 minutes.

Rated best undiscovered beach.: Amenities include elevator, Large salt-water pool, Kiddie pool, 2 hot tubs, gourmet kitchen and so much more. Seclusion with easy accessibility is the main ingredients for this fabulous mansion. But most of all you stay with us will help you forget how to work and remember how to play and have fun again.

If you're in the mood for a beach drive, the Virginia border is a 14-mile jaunt North. Drive carefully; the beach is visited by sea turtles, seals resting on their migration, etc. Dolphin sightings are common; whale sightings are much less common.

The remarkable area surrounding Sunnybank.: The area boasts a beautiful shoreline, two of the East Coast's largest sand dunes, 4 famous lighthouses, museums, water sports, great shopping and a plethora of restaurants, not to mention great fishing & wildlife. True oceanfront living tempts you to enjoy wild mustangs grazing in your own yard, star lit walks along the beaches, waking up to the surf and exploration of the Sound in a relaxing environment.

Things to do: Locally, you may want to visit the Whalehead Club at the lighthouse, a turn of the Century hunting 'camp.' It's a restored mansion from the glory days of the great hunt camps of the gilded age. Tours are given daily. Right next door, the Currituck Beach Lighthouse is also open for tours. There's a lighthouse, keeper's cottage and a bit of the old Corolla village. The wildlife preserve offers great free activities along with a interesting video and museum.

2nd Largest Dune on the Eastern Seaboard.: Penny's Hill Dune, (the Outer Banks second largest natural dune, second only to Jockey's Ridge) is located almost in your backyard. Savor the water views from every room of this unique coastal destination. Let unsurpassed ocean sunrises and sound sunsets mesmerize you. The local gas station/convenience store can be accessed in less than 5 minutes. It is like having your own private driveway; one side is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, guarded by an army of Sandpipers, marching in unison along the water edge. On the other side exists an estuarine nature sanctuary, on the beautiful Currituck Outer Banks in a last truly pristine area, with high sand dunes, beautiful trees and thousands of acres of Island Sanctuary.

About Karen Carroll

We are definitely country people and most of the year live on a couple hundred acres in PA raising beautiful, loving Portuguese Water Dog Puppies. Our website for puppies is: http://pwdpuppies.com

Our summer family vacations are sometimes at Sunnybank our unique OBX home. But we especially enjoy family trip to our Quebec Territory in Canada which is God's country. Our private lake has 88 miles of shoreline that just take your breath away. If you want to try something different and remote: http://lacperdu.com

Karen Carroll purchased this house in 2001

Why Karen Carroll chose Corolla

We love water and the ocean so when we found Sunnybank on 3 oceanfront acres it was perfect. Lac Perdu (Lost Lake)with our ramshackle lodge and cabins in remote Quebec Canada is about as opposite as you can get from the luxury of Sunnybank's Victorian Mansion but we would be hard pressed to say which place we enjoy more.

What makes this house unique

Getting to see the wild horses right in your own yard.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Karen,



We leased your Sunnybank the week of Memorial Day. I talked with you on the phone during our stay. I wanted to thank you for the champagne and the use of your lovely home. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and your home has everything anyone could want while on vacation. We had brought allot of things with us but your home already had everything.



We did not leave the home except one day to sight see, we enjoyed the sunrises, sunsets and all the wildlife. We live on a farm and when I heard the whip-o-will in the evenings I felt at home. We cooked breakfast inside, sandwiched for lunches and ate dinner every day out by the pool. It was a vacation to remember. I loved

the beach at night it was as beaches should be just the beach. You have done an outstanding job on making the home a home but yet a

vacation home where you can have a vacation worth remembering. I am envious of your rosemary it is lovely. No one in our group

wanted to leave, that says it all ! I have attached pictures from our stay there.



Thanks Ever So Much,

Betina Loflin Gonzalez

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
My entire family (6A and 2C) stayed in Sunnybanks for Thanksgiving. What a treat! The compound was perfect for our family! It is close enough for convenience and far enough to get away from it all! The owners are WONDERFUL! My family would recommend Sunnybanks to anyone who wants to experience perfection!

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I wanted a luxury home- natural surroundings (not a golf course setting or manicured lawns) ocean front & close the sound for birding. At Sunnybank we got it all. We have been visiting this home for several years, & it has everything we want- in location & what it has to offer. We love it!

Fun for All Ages

  • 4 of 5
Perfect spot for a family getaway! There is so much to do there for all ages. Watch the sunset and sunrise over the ocean AND the sound from the many, many decks that give you a 360 degree view. Enjoy the pool (and a baby pool for the little ones), two hot tubs, two separate game BUILDINGS that have everything you could think of, kayak on the sound, spy the wild horses on the beach or right outside your window.

They have thought of everything at Sunnybrook. You'll want for nothing! It even has a separate steamer kitchen to steam your lobster, crab and shrimp that you can get from the many seafood markets in the area.

The ONLY reason I didn't give this a five star rating is that I HATE cars on the beach! That ruined the ocean experience for me but trust me, once you get to Sunnybank you won't want to go anywhere else. DO get a 4-wheel drive with high clearance and I'd advise a spotter on the dune if you go in and out to make sure no one is coming the other way. After that, just enjoy!

Awesome - first beach vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned back from a wonderful, relaxing vacation at Sunnybank. The home was beautifully decorated inside and kept very clean. I was surprised actually how clean it was as we’ve rented many different vacation homes over the years when we travel and the décor is always dusty and such. But not here. Very well kept. The outdoor areas were AWESOME. The kids loved the huge pool! We played ping pong and pool everyday also. You have an amazing view of both the sunsets over the sound at night and the ocean sunrise. We walked to the beach everyday – it was a very short walk. The horses were a great bonus. We didn’t think we’d see any, but we did, almost daily! We were worried about beach driving BUT it was just fine. We followed the recommendations and it was actually very fun. We drove to the Virginia border one day just to see the rest of the beach. There are a lot of neat little nooks and crannies outside and it was fun discovering them all. The kitchen was the best furnished kitchen that we’ve ever had with a rental. They had everything we need and much much more. Usually houses are furnished with only the bare minimum but not here. Excellent vacation. Very relaxing.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for the grand report. I have a full time change over staff that spend the entire day there cleaning and it shows. I stopped in a few weeks ago and everything was as nice and clean as in the beginning of the season this April & May.

Looking forward to having you back.

Best wishes,
Karen & Mike
