About Dan

We love the Outer Banks and have been coming here for years. I'm not sure who loves it more, my wife and I, or our dog who seems to become a puppy again in the couple of minutes it takes her to run from our home over the dunes to the ocean. Visits to our home away from home are rejuvenating for us all and I think will be for you and your family too!

Dan purchased this house in 2003

Why Dan chose Corolla

We already liked Corolla and felt it was a dream come true when we found The Salty Pause, it is just like the old saying, 'location, location, location' Our location is on a quite cul-de-sac, with the house right on the beach with just a short 80' private sand path to the Boardwalk and another 100' over the dunes to the ocean. As if a semi-ocean front location with no roads to cross wasn't good enough, the empty ocean front lot meant we could enjoy a fantastic unobstructed view of the dunes and ocean. Beyond the location and beauty of the exterior of the house, once we saw the interior with the open airy feel of the unique 2 story octogon-shaped Great Room with the wood ceiling, we knew this was the house for us!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the phenomenal view of the dunes and ocean from our home, whether from the decks, screened-in outside dining room, or inside from the Great Room. We are close to everything from golf and groceries (both a half mile away), 3 different shopping centers within 2 miles provides access to a multitude of restaurants, shopping, and recreation opportunities. My favorite perk while at our home is going to the local coffee shop and Lighthouse Bagels for a wonderful breakfast followed by a morning walk on the beach. Ahh, life is good!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Welcome to The Salty Pause! We hope you will come, relax and enjoy the outstanding unobstructed views at our beach home and the direct access to the ocean. We love the bright, open, airy feel of our Great Room and think you will too.



One of our last guests said, "We love it! We would like to stay the whole summer here!!"

A Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed one of our best vacations ever at The Salty Pause! The house was perfect for 6 adults and 4 children. The house was immaculate when we arrived and it just took our breath away when we walked up the stairs and saw the view from the open kitchen/family room/dining room! We had many fun cocktail hours on the deck! The beach is beautiful and having the outdoor shower and pool in the back yard was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub, too! My 10 year old granddaughter would like us to buy The Salty Pause so we can all live there together forever!! We will definitely be back!!

Awesome Vacation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I just have to say that we had an excellent time in this home! This was my first trip to the Outer Banks and it was great! The house was immaculate! We had a great time on the upper level just hanging out together and watching the ocean. The pool and hot tub were so much fun and the walk to the beach was fairly easy. We hated to leave this beautiful home. Many great memories were made on this vacation and I highly recommend this home to anyone that is looking to stay in Corolla. Thank you for a great vacation!

The Salty Pause

  • 5 of 5
The Salty Pause was a wonderful vacation rental unit. The house was very clean, and appointed with every possible amenity. The location to the beach was very convenient. The outdoor shower was great especially after relaxing in the hot tub and cool pool!
The location to the grocery store and other shopping was nice and close.
Mattresses on each of the beds could have been newer/more comfortable and all the pillows needed replacement, but we overlooked this one flaw.
I would highly recommend this rental unit :)

beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
All the reviews are correct, this house is beautiful! The only thing I would point out is that the house is approx. 36 steps up and down stairs to the beach which can be tiring by week end especially when you have to carry beach chairs, umbrellas, towels etc up and down those 36 stairs. We didn't realize this when we rented and that was our only disappointment. The house is gorgeous and kept very well. The owner was a pleasure to talk to when I booked and was helpful.

Owner's Response: Thanks Brenda for the great review. Just to clarify, the steps Brenda is referring to are stairs on the boardwalk, NOT our house. Anyone accessing our local beach by foot from any house in the neighborhood would also have to use the stairs up and over the dunes. Corolla is blessed to have good dunes between the ocean and all ocean-front houses which protect our homes during Nor'Easters, tropical storms & hurricanes. Other communities have little to no dunes which may make for easier guest commutes back and forth to the beach, but with little to no dunes, the ocean front houses may not survive the next storm either!

What a Delight!

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed two lovely weeks at The Salty Pause. We definitely recommend! The house is more spacious than we had expected, and all of the rooms are nicely appointed. Everything was spotless when we arrived, and I loved going directly to the house at our convenience, rather than checking in at an office offsite. The kitchen had everything we needed for both cooking & baking, and the beds & baths are all nicely done. We enjoyed the games & puzzles tucked away in the great room and also spent time there just relaxing, listening to the waves. The grill worked like a charm, and we enjoyed many meals in the screened-in porch. I really appreciated that both levels of balcony are secure with no steps to the ground; I had no worries that anyone would approach from below, and our dogs could easily enjoy time outside with us safely. The pool is a perfect size and very refreshing. The beach is, literally, right there (do not let the semi-oceanfront tag fool you), and the views are a delight!

We found the location ideal and remarkably convenient. You are right on the water but the neighborhood is a bit deeper than some of the others, so you are completely removed from the main road of traffic. The area is between Duck & Historic Corolla, giving easy access to all of the activities in both, and we also visited Roanoke & Hatteras Islands with no trouble. And do not discount the benefit of being close to a nice grocery store (Harris Teeter)!

I had never been to the Outer Banks prior to this visit, so truth be told, I picked The Salty Pause a bit blindly. My parameters: oceanfront with a pool, dog friendly, and not enormous. Other than that, I had no idea what to prioritize. I think I reviewed dozens of houses before picking this one, and we feel so lucky how well it worked out. We could not have asked for more!

In terms of what to visit, if you are looking for a few things beyond the beach, we enjoyed — The Whalehead Club, the Currituck Lighthouse, a Segway tour through Historic Corolla, golf at The Currituck Club, spa time at Aqua & Sanderling, a wild horse tour, the Wright Brothers National Memorial, the stunning Elizabeth Gardens on Roanoke Island, & Cape Hatteras Light. We had great meals at 1587 in Manteo, The Blue Point in Duck (also good for kids), and Kimball's Kitchen in Duck (great view & amazing food). Most of the shopping is tourist-y, but we found a few gems in historic Corolla, such as the bookshop, and Roanoke has some nice galleries. Enjoy!!

Great Place to Pause and Relax

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Salty Pause was a great experience. The house is amazingly well laid out and appointed. You arrive and park under the house, protecting your car from the sun. The under-house area also has places to hang beach towels, etc., a fish cleaning station (mostly used to hose sand off feet after the beach), and a very private outdoor shower, which you use before going through the gate to the fenced-off in-ground pool and adjacent hot tub. The entire house was really clean and fresh smelling but the pool and hot tub were positively sparkling! We really like the second floor balcony that is shaded by the upper balcony. It’s a nice place to relax and read on a hot day. If you’re a dog owner like us, and your dog needs a short time out or a break from the kids in your group (like ours), the balcony is perfect because it’s shady and does not have any stairs to the ground. The kitchen had everything we needed for making meals for the week (2 coffee makers!; big pot for a seafood boil and a full set of wine glasses), except, and this is a very minor quibble, neither of the 2 can openers worked worth a darn. When we weren’t outside, mostly we hung out on the third floor in the great room with its comfy wrap-around couch and large flatscreen. Right off this living area is the upper balcony with views out to the ocean and nothing between you and the ocean but the dune that you cross to get to the beach. Part of this balcony is exposed, with very nice Adirondack-style deck furniture and a propane grill. We used the other part of the deck, a screened-in area with picnic tables, to watch a few rainstorms and enjoy some cool breezes in the shade. There’s a lot of tranquility in this location. We saw a fox one time and a rabbit another down in the vegetation between the house and the dune. When you’re ready for the beautiful beach, you need your own towels but otherwise the owners have supplied you with just about everything you need; beach chairs, boogie boards (and even a wake board, though we couldn’t get the hang of it), sand pails and stuff like that. Might want to bring your own beach umbrella, though. We had a great week; pretty sure you will too.
