Perfect stay and the best host

  • 5 of 5
Monique was amazing to work with and so helpful. Admittedly we were a bit high maintenance in regards to schedule, but she made it work for us. The house was beautiful, and having two jetted tubs and the hot tub was so convenient. The kitchen had everything you could ask for, and we never even ate out because it was just so cozy to stay in. It was a very very short walk to the beach as well. All in all, it was perfect!

Great vacation at a Darling Escape

  • 5 of 5
We (2 families- 4 adults and 7 kids) vacationed at this lovely home in Corolla in mid August and had a great experience. We'd highly recommend it and would stay there again if we return to the area. The owner is very sweet and attentive so the rental process was easy. The house and kitchen are very well equipped and the provided beach gear is AWESOME. It saved us from hauling beach chairs etc in our car all the way from home. Seriously, that amenity alone would make me want to return to this house! There are a ton of dvds/vhs tapes of many family friendly movies for guest use. The kids loved the xbox and provided games. The house itself is a manageable walk to the beach via a private path and you don't have to cross any streets (huge plus with 7 kids in tow). We were blown away by the beaches in Corolla given it was our first time staying there. Absolutely gorgeous. We will definitely return.

Fun at the Beach

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from A Darling Escape and our 1st trip to OBX. What a great week!! The weather was perfect, the house well kept and everything imaginable provided! We made great use of the bikes, beach chairs and boogie boards - made our packing for the trip so much easier too! Monique keeps you well informed and makes a great hostess. We will certainly be back!! The Fisher family, Williamsport/Pittsburgh, PA

Just Darling!

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a wonderful week at A Darling Escape on our first trip to the Outer Banks! The home was absolutely perfect for us - immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and equipped with everything we needed - even sand toys and beach chairs. The location is great - very close to shopping and dining (highly recommend Lighthouse Bagels for breakfast!). The pool, 1st floor game room, and feeding the turtles at the lake were big hits with the kids in our group. It was a terrific rental experience and Monique was very pleasant to work with - we hope to come back again sometime!

Super!

  • 5 of 5
This house is a super find. The owners were helpful and prompt before we even arrived. Very clean, great comfortable furnishings and bed, and the rental pix are spot on. Oh and they have more, great stocked kitchen, bikes, dvd's, games, books, and games, just terrific. The decor is extremely well done and inviting! We loved the fireplace and the private view. You will love A Darling Escape.

A Darling Escape, just darling

  • 5 of 5
What a truly enjoyable vacation we had a A Darling Escape. The Darlings, love saying that, were super to us; quickly answering all questions and had great suggestion as needed. This home is just as lovely as described, but better. The decorating is beachy and beautiful. The beds comfortable, what a rare find in vacation homes. We have been to other part of OBX, but are now die hard Corolla lovers. The close proximity to shopping, grocery stores, movie theater, and all activities children could want made this home a perfect spot. The short walk to beach was enjoyable and easy, and the lake was right behind us, with turtles, fishing and wild life, made for good entertainment for our whole party. The hot tub and pool were a fun escape after a day at the beach. We loved the screened in porch every evening, which was great to ward off the mosquitos.
