Our family has long wanted a safe, clean, well maintained OBX vacation property that was the 'right size', not too big and not too small. On finding this house we instantly fell in love. It is truly the OBX vacation property we had been looking for but never able to find... We enjoy the house many weeks throughout the year and operate under the principle that if it is not good enough for us, it is not good enough for our guests!

Mike Tamberino purchased this house in 2006

The Outer Banks is the ultimate family beach vacation spot. It is safe, friendly and away from the crowds found in many other beach locations. It has everything from fishing to surfing to wild horses. Close to Baltimore, Washington DC and points north and south. It is what ocean towns used to be...

Our property is centrally located in the Outer Banks in Corolla. Two blocks north is Tim Buck II which has great shopping and restaurants. Further north is the 4 wheel drive beach and wild horses. But lets face it... You came for the beach and ours is top notch. Private (access only by property owners and guests) it is just steps away from our home. Beautiful sand and surf, sun and fun!!!

Sleeping with the Fishes was a great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5
We loved staying at Sleeping with the Fishes! Plenty of living space for our extended family. The grandchildren liked sleeping in the bunk room, and I liked reading in the screened porch. We were close to the beach, the lake and shopping. We were very comfortable during our stay. On a return visit I would consider bringing a large electric frying pan. Cooking breakfast for a large group was challenging, but I noted in a previous review that the owner plans to buy some new pans. It was a wonderful vacation. I would love to return to Sleeping with the Fishes!

Great place to relax or for family!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with extended family, including grandparents, teens, and a baby, and really enjoyed the house and location. We had never stayed on the OBX before, so had no idea what to expect. After driving from Corolla to Nags Head during the week and seeing what other rental areas are like, we were so happy that we had picked this location! It is a quiet neighborhood with safe family friendly streets, easy walking distance to the beach which is clean, beautiful and not too crowded! The stores and restaurants are very close by (it looks like some people even bike or walk to them). As for the house, it is lovely and at the right price. I loved the rooftop deck and found it a nice place to do early morning or nighttime yoga! We got to watch 4th of July neighborhood fireworks from the hot tub, which was pretty sweet. The kitchen and some other areas are fairly new and the layout is very open and family-friendly. The home comes with baby items too (you may want to bring an additional baby gate if you are very particular about that - just be proactive). The grandparents appreciated the large room with their own deck and TV for afternoon napping/relaxing. We had a few routine maintenance items needed and Mike responded very quickly. In fact, even before the trip, the owners were very easy to contact and gave lots of helpful information. During the trip, we were surprised by a hurricane (!) and Mike was again very helpful and attentive in making sure we were safe. Again, this was a nice location because being further up the coast, we were not in the evacuation zone. We arrived and departed very early on Saturdays and honestly had no issues with traffic. The only suggestion I would make (like the coffee pot comment - sometimes you don't believe the super positive reviews!) is this: if you are a big foodie and plan to make a lot of meals at the house, you may want to bring your own frying/sauteeing pans, as the ones there are teflon and getting a bit beat up. Otherwise there is plenty of stuff to cook and bake whatever you want, as well as lots of nearby restaurants. Great place, thanks!

Owner's Response: Ann Marie - Thank you for taking the time to submit feedback on our home. Most importantly, I am glad you and your family fared well in the storm and you enjoyed your vacation! Noted about the frying pans. I will replace them as soon as possible. Thanks again for the feedback and we hope to have you and your family as our guests next summer!

Very pleased

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sleeping with the Fishes. The house was very clean, bright, and comfortably furnished. The walk to the beach was quick and easy, which we all appreciated. It was great having the shopping center with restaurants and stores so close by -- once we got to the beach we certainly didn't want to spend a lot of time in the car, and thankfully we didn't have to.The owners are easy to work with and very responsive to my questions. We would certainly recommend the house to our friends and hope to stay there again.

What a great house!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I were looking for a relaxing beach vacation in the outer banks for my best friend's birthday. Unfortunately her birthday falls on one of the most expensive weeks of summer rentals in Duck and Corolla. We spent a lot of time looking at houses and came across this one. The price could not be beat for this week, it had everything we wanted, and pictures looked good, so we booked it. Driving all the way down from Boston, we were unsure if maybe the pictures had oversold the house and that’s why it was on the cheaper side. But when we arrived we were SO pleasantly surprised at how perfect the house was! Everything was colorful and beach like, but very clean, and it had the perfect location. It had a very open layout and lots of sun. We used the hot tub every afternoon, cooked every night because there was plenty of nice cookware and dishes, did some laundry mid week, and it was a really easy walk to the beach! The private beach was so much less crowded then the public beaches to the side of us, so we have plenty of space to find a good spot. We really enjoyed the Adirondack chairs on the deck for reading, the screened in porch for dinner, and the roof deck at night. Having three full bathrooms plus an outdoor was great for 6 people who all want to shower after the beach. And the best part was that the house is located just a block from the Food Lion Grocery store and shopping, and there was NO traffic on the main road to get there, like there was in Duck. We absolutely love staying here and would love to come back next summer!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a great week "Sleeping with the Fishes"! We all had a wonderful experience and would gladly return again. We all love to cook and found the kitchen to be exceedingly well equipped for gourmet meals. Our six-month old used the port-crib and highchair and squealed with delight. The deck and screened porch were where we enjoyed our pre-dinner drinks each night. And the air conditioning kept us all comfortable, as the week was very hot (mid-July, after all).

Michael and Jennifer were great to work with, and answered all questions promptly. Over all, five stars!
