Corolla House Rental Photos and Description

House, 8 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-24)

We named our 8 BR oceanside beach house 'Sea Forever' because you really can--see forever! Imagine a vacation with amenities like a private heated pool, hot tub, fireplace, elevator, 17 bicycles, gourmet kitchen, jacuzzi, landscaped garadens w/firepit, PS 3 & Wii, ocean views, and a beach only 600 feet away (a 3-min. walk)! Sea Forever has 5,000 sq. ft., so rooms are large and accommodating. You can wake to sunrise over the ocean, enjoy coffee and bagels poolside, and lounge around the great room planning your day, perhaps to see the Lost Colony outdoor drama (May-Aug), Wright Brothers first flight historic area, the wild ponies, or the 1925-era Whalehead Club. Sea Forever is wonderfully situated within walking and biking distance of shops, restaurants, and other services (see map and reviews). Guests love our keyless entry and custom check-in at gated pool area. Your whole family or group can enjoy the best of all worlds: luxurious comfort and oceanside access to OBX's best beach, but at family-affordable rates. Check out our YouTube video in the tab above, and on facebook at for photos!

THIRD FLOOR: Great room w/ cathedral ceilings & walls of windows, gas fireplace, 2-story octagonal kitchen with maple-wood cabinets and black granite countertops, breakfast island w/4+ seats, dining room area with table for 12, common area 1/2 bath, elevator, master king bedroom and bath w/jacuzzi & shower w/hair dryer & 32' HDTV, DVD library, and deck w/picnic table.

Sea Forever is a treat for relaxing and having fun. Our new custom landscaping offers 6 magnificent palm trees, shade lounging garden with firepit, ornamental grass garden, and rose garden with perennials to enjoy. The bedrooms feature TVs with DVD or VCRs. A new 46' HDTV is in the recreation room with a pool table and electronic scoring dart board. Watch movies or play games in our theater room (w/56' HDTV). We have 431 movies from which to select, including over 86 children's movies alone. Challenge each other on PlayStation 3 or Wii. Listen to music CDs or your own through the IPOD/MP3 stereo connector in the great room. Curl up with a good book in our den, choosing from our library of Romance, Science Fantasy, Paranormal, Classics, and Young Adult books. Jump in the pool or hot tub while you sip drinks, grill, watch TV, or listen to your IPOD/MP3 on wireless outdoor stereo. There is even a refrigerator/gas grill for keeping your drinks cool and your burgers hot. We offer free U.S. long distance, high speed cable internet via modem and WiFi, and fax.

Our sea-foam inspired decor invites coastal tranquility. The great room furniture includes a buttery-yellow leather sofa w/ matching loveseat and chair, two reading chairs w/ottomans, and new window treatments. We offer our guests a linen package with 300-count soft Egyptian cotton linens, bath towels, bath mats, blankets, beach towels, and extra king- and queen-sized pillows. Your beds are made for you and there are two dual washer/dryer units & 5 hair dryers for your use.

If you can tear yourself away from the amenities, stroll just 600 feet to the wonderful beach and bring our beach toys. The water is refreshingly clean, and often you can see the dolphins swimming by. When you return, there is an outdoor shower to get the sand off before hitting the hot tub, cruising down the bikepath to shops and restaurants, or driving to tennis and golf courses. We have 19 bikes--five 20' boys & girls bikes, three toddler bikes w/ training wheels, and 11 26' adult bikes, 4 new this year. We have 14 helmets of assorted sizes. Toys, puzzles, and board games will keep young and young-at-heart happy for hours. You won't be able to resist a smile when the ice cream man arrives each evening with his jingly tune!

Our 2-story octagonal kitchen has solid wood maple cabinets, black granite counters, and 2 each of dishwashers, coffee makers, toasters, and ovens. The entire family can eat at the 12-seat dining room table next to the 4+-seat breakfast bar, with full-service hand-painted dinnerware. The kitchen is well-stocked with amenities like a tea set, espresso/cappuccino maker, Belgian waffle iron, food processor, softserve ice cream maker, breadmaker, 2 crockpots, and pasta machine. We provide two Graco Pack & Play cribs and two highchairs, sheets, and blankets. You can prep your cookout food in the kitchenette, grill at poolside (your choice of two different gas and charcoal grills each), and transport the entire meal in the elevator for dining on the third floor. Or you may choose to eat at the two picnic tables, using our outdoor dishes and tablecloths for that 'summer party' feeling with outdoor speakers. You have no lugging of travel bags or groceries, as the elevator makes your movements easy. Everything here will make Sea Forever your favorite getaway spot!

We are the Towarnicky family, and the proud owners of 'Sea Forever,' our oceanside beach house at Corolla in the Outer Banks, NC. Jim is an attorney who specializes in real estate. We do not use an impersonal rental management company. We can be flexible to meet your needs. To protect against scammers, always contact Jim to verify your week is available and do not send money to anyone by wire transfer. Our family welcomes your family and friends to share our home, where you can Sea Forever!

Jim purchased this house in 2010

Our family vacationed several times over the years at the Outer Banks, and loved the clean, white sandy beaches. Other beach areas in other states that we tried were too crowded and dirty, and the houses too small. When we decided to finally purchase a vacation home, we knew we would come back to this fabulous resort area. It has everything you could want in a vacation spot: historic sightseeing with Wright Brothers First Flight, boutique shops, the Lost Colony outdoor drama, Currituck Lighhouse, Historic Corolla, and the nature preserve section with wild horses. There are all sorts of aquatic sports, and of course, the ocean and beach. Corolla is family-oriented and quiet, if that is what you wish, but connected to a string of towns along the coast (Duck, Southern Shores, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, Manteo) with varying activities and nightlife for all ages. It really provides the best of all worlds!

We chose this house because it has a combination of conveniences and luxuries that make your vacation the best! The chef in your family will love the spacious, well-stocked octagonal 2-story kitchen with dramatic black granite counters, solid maple cabinetry, dual ovens, dual dishwashers, 2010 refrigerator freezer, and great views. Enjoy family dinners on our 12-seat dining table and 4-seat breakfast bar. Our elevator and handicapped-accessible bedrooms and bathroom ensure that all family members can share your vacation. There is never a dull moment when you can splash in the pool or hot tub with friends, play pool or throw darts in our sensational recreation room, try out our Wii and PlayStation 3 video games in the theater room, or watch movies with our extensive DVD and video collection (in addition to cable TV). Escape to the bright cheerful den to read a book, or watch TV and movies. The house is spacious enough that your family and friends can share the experience, but be separated and not on top of each other all the time. But the best amenity is simply the location, where you can stroll down the street only 600 feet to the beach entrance, or sip a favorite drink on the decks, watching the waves in a panoramic view so soothing that you'll wish you didn't have to leave. We STILL feel that way ourselves every time we come down.
