Why Themis Johnson chose Corolla

We LOVE the Whalehead area. The grocery store, shops, restaurants, movie theatre, day spa, go carts, putt putt, jet skiis, ice cream shops and lots of other activities are just a couple blocks away. Our kids love biking there whenever they want. The close proximity gives them a lot of independence.

What makes this house unique

The privacy of all the bedroom suites allows everyone to have their own bathroom and TV in their bedroom. It's great for some quiet R & R after a day on the beach with all the kids!

We had the best time at your beautiful home… the beach was like a private beach! Everything was so well prepared for us. You have truly thought of everything! We arrived to your lovely home that was spotlessly clean and were treated to the already made beds and cozy towels!(that was a great perk for me!) The weather was great and we walked the beach, shopped (soooo convenient) and enjoyed lovely sunsets and sunrises each day! My children found so many beautiful shells and even sand dollars!My in-laws had truly a fabulous time and now want to do this every year! Thank you again for allowing us to enjoy your home ~ we look forward to staying again!

RENTERS BEWARE!

  • 1 of 5
Should have listened to July 2013 review. This was our 4th year renting in OBX. Have rented from VRBO before as well as owning rental property ourselves.
Positives: Great location (across from beach access)!
Negatives: Cleaning people there a full hour past check in time. Mid-level carpet had three big stains and smelled like poop. Soiled diaper found under bedspread. NOT MAKING THAT UP! Sinks are so small that big pots and pans (needed to cook for a house that sleeps 19) can not be washed without water going everywhere, showers on midlevel and below either had scalding hot water only or trickled out, pool is misrepresented - unless I missed this info, the pool is only 4 ft deep and very small for 19 people, beach chairs rusted and could not be used, curtains in front bedrooms thin and did not fit windows properly (Be prepared to wake with morning light). Freezer door on fridge opens every time refrigerator opened. Ice machine had rust in it and had to be cleaned. Rooms and bathrooms small and dated.

For the price (it was no bargain), not worth it! Have paid less for beach access with bigger and much better accommodations, linens included and pet friendly.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to note that the location of our home, across from the beach access, is considered a great location. It's what drew us to this particular property when we purchased it seven years ago.

It was helpful to get details on the housecleaning. We were informed that the previous tenants had left everything in disarray and there was much that needed to be cleaned. The cleaners came at 11:00, and it took them until 5:00 to clean the home, much longer than the typical 2-3 hours to clean our home after a rental, and an hour after the 4 o'clock arrival time of the next tenants. Carpet cleaning was also done. New carpeting and hard wood floors were installed throughout the home this season, so the soiled areas were taken care of. We also had our management company change the cleaning crew for our home for future rentals due to the notations about the quality of the cleaning.

The pool and its dimensions are noted and pictured on VRBO. As with many homes in the Outer Banks, it is not a deep pool, and goes to a depth of about 4 and a half feet. We are designing and building a new pool for the 2015 season.

Curtains were purchased recently that matched the bedding. We did not know they were somewhat sheer, and are adding a backing element to make them block the sunlight better.

A work order was placed to address the refrigerator issue and it has been remedied. It is only through tenants letting us know something is wrong that we can take care of getting it fixed.

A plumber was called to look into the stated water issue. The problem could not be replicated and has not been noted before by any other tenants nor by us as the owners during our seven years of owning the home.

We have a new management company this year, and having feedback is helpful to know what we can do to make sure our home is in the best condition for each and every tenant.

Themis and Matthew (owners)

Extremely disappointed!

  • 1 of 5
This was our 13th year renting in OBX & our worse year! We arrived 6/15/13 to an uncleaned house, safety issues with no screens on porch, wet dog smell & an extremely "un-gourmet" kitchen. The rooms were much more cramped than we could assess online & the backyard was unkempt & not really usuable. Location was great along with a new hot tub & nice paint job but all else was disappointing.
Elan Vacations responded to housekeeping & safety issues immediately.
We cannot recommend this house at all based on prior years of experience.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback from tenants so that we could rectify everything for them immediately. Below is an explanation for the matters identified. We always ask that renters let us know right away if anything needs to be addressed so that we can promptly take care of items for them.

***Our home was in the process of getting the following items done prior to this tenant's arrival for the summer season ... a completely new paint job, interior and exterior, new decking and hot tub, new beddings, decorations and grill.
***By oversight of our management company, due to miscommunication on the completion date of the updating work from the contractors, the spring cleaning and yard work did not get scheduled correctly.
***As soon as the tenants arrived and notified the management company that the cleaning had not been done, a cleaning crew was sent out immediately to take care of everything.
***The yard maintenance personnel came to finish the exterior work.
***The contractor came and reinstalled the screens that had been removed for the new paint job to be done. They had been left out for the day so the paint could finish drying, and the renters had arrived prior to the screens being reinstalled that afternoon.

Should you have any questions about the home, don't hesitate to ask by emailing or calling us via the contact information on our VRBO site.

Respectfully submitted by the owners,
Themis and Matthew

Perfect vacation and wedding home

  • 5 of 5
I searched many sites looking for a home for our daughter’s wedding prior to finding Drift Inn. I am still amazed that we found a home that suited our needs perfectly (sight unseen!). The layout of the home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the back yard, the driveway/parking area, access to the beach access (mere steps away), were all perfect. The owner’s promptness to my questions and concerns was superior. I wouldn’t consider staying in any other home if I get the opportunity to vacation in Corolla again.

This house is absolutely wonderful. There were 7 adults who stayed and we each had our own sleeping space as well as a private bathroom. The walk to the boardwalk was ideally close. All of the amenities were wonderful and we especially enjoyed playing shuffleboard. We would not hesitate to return again for another vacation. It was very quiet and relaxing.
