About Matthew

Our passion has always been the beach. As kids we traveled to the OBX before it was anything like it is now. The hardest thing for us to do as a family is to say good-bye to this area when heading back to reality. The area is by far one of the best places in the world. We put our blood sweat and tears into the house to make it what it is now.

Matthew purchased this house in 1995

Why Matthew chose Corolla

As a kid my family trips would consist of eight hour trip to the Outer Banks. Although the Outer Banks are much different now than they were, they have always been my first love and favorite vacation destination. The memories I had during my family vacations as a kid I will cherish forever. I always knew that I wanted my own beach house and worked my entire life to have the house of my dreams so I could create my own memories with my own family.

What makes this house unique

The Outer Banks is the absolute most beautiful place to travel to. The house is secluded with that private resident feel. The warm salty breeze and soundtrack like waves splashing in the background makes sitting on the porch watching the sunset the best thing in the world. Being able to walk approximately 75 steps to the beach and squishing sand between your feet makes for the best beach days. Unlike other East coast beach destinations there is a total seclusion while on the beach and in the community. It is like being on a private beach. Being a large residence there is plenty of space for every guest to spend all of your time together or get lost in your own mini vacation.

All You Could Ever Want Just Hours Away!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Pine Islands, Outer Banks twice before and this home was by far the nicest. It was comfortable, well kept and tranquil being so close the ocean! The kitchen and dining area is very open and large allowing great fun for cooking and eating as a family. The tiki bar was my favorite feature. It was great if you wanted to stay at the house and opt out of the beach for the day. You still felt like you were on an oasis! You will not be bored. With tennis and other activities within the community there is something for everyone. It is a very convenient community as well with great shopping, local seafood restaurants, grocery stores, etc... About 5-10min away.

If this house is available, RENT IT! Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

Every year my family and my sisters family along with our parents get a chance to rent a house for a family vacation. This is actually the second time we have rented the Gem of the Ocean. We stayed here in 2011 and had an amazing time. We found ourselves regretting we booked elsewhere in 2012 & 2013. Huge renovations were made to the house since our stay in 2011. We had the pleasure of booking Gem of the Ocean for the week of June 7-14 2014. The owners re-did the entire house and it looks like a brand new house. The addition to the tiki hut bar to the back of the house was an AMAZING addition. The location of the house is perfect. You are extremely close to everything you need from restaurants, grocery stores, to shoppes and activities. I spent a ton of time by the pool with the kids and our parents could sit out back under shade with a drink and watch the kids. The weather was absolutely amazing as we got lucky and had nothing but blue skies. The house gives each family its own needed space with the separate rooms. The adults loved how close you are to the beach. The proximity to the beach makes it easy to get on and off the beach at anytime for lunch, refreshments, and bathroom breaks. The outside bathroom and shower is a awesome feature. I will continue to rent this house every year if vacation is in the books, and I know Matthew will go out of his way to accommodate me and my family.

Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The owner was a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond with questions we had. The kitchen is well stocked and plenty of room to work in. We had 9 kids and 6 adults and everyone was happy. The furniture is in need of a little updating, but I believe they are in the process of doing so. The access to the beach is so close (directly across from the driveway), it's really like being Oceanfront for less money. Very nice secluded beach area. The hot tub and hammock are wonderful afternoon getaway spots. There are 2 large food stores within 5 miles. There are no tv's in the bunk bed and twin rooms, so if your kids need a tv on to go to bed, bring a portable DVD player. Overall experience, GOOD!

Beautiful house...Fantastic location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting Gem of the Ocean & we all thoroughly enjoyed this house. The location to the beach is awesome, especially for us who couldn't afford oceanfront. The house is nicely layed out with plenty of room for all. The pool area and new bar were phenomenal & we spent many evenings out there. The big hammock on the side deck was very peaceful for an afternoon nap. Having the basketball court and swings were an added bonus for the kids. Matthew was very responsive and easy to work with from the beginning to the end of our rental. If I had to pick a con (there are very few), I would say the inside furniture could use some replacement (I.e. couches are worn & not firm as you sink down when sitting on them) and the kitchen accessories need to be added too as there are no baking pans (I.e. no muffin or cake pans) and more lounge chairs for the decks and pool area would be nice, too. I would definitely rent with Matthew again. GEM OF THE OCEAN was as promised, plus some!
