About Diane Hageman

My husband and I love the 4 wheel area of the outer banks. The horses, the ocean and the wildlife is spectacular. This is our dream vacation home and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Diane Hageman purchased this house in 2011

Why Diane Hageman chose Corolla

Our family has been coming here for years. When we retired, we found a place we loved and made it ours.

What makes this house unique

Every morning we have coffee on the decks and watch the horses go by or walk down to the ocean and watch the dolphins. It doesn't get much better than this.

Red Octopus

  • 5 of 5
Our week stay at the Red Octopus was wonderful! The house is as pictured on the website (and more). We had several days of rain, but we were quite content in the house, with books, TV, music & food! The frogs sang us to sleep at night. The view from the top deck is very nice and the house was clean and well maintained. We normally do not go to to a place twice, as we like to check out other places, but I would go back for a visit to the Red Octopus and Swan Beach.

My family and I had a great time staying in such a beautiful place. The house was more than expected. My five year loved seeing the gorgeous wild horses roam about. And the last night pizza delivery was awesome. My wife and son had to take pics.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 2 year old son and I had a wonderful stay at this beach home. We thought more family would be coming, so we rented a bigger house just in case, but it was perfect for us because there was plenty of room for our toddler to move around. Everything was exactly as described and pictured. The kitchen came fully equipped, and our meals were fantastic. The sunrises were spectacular from the bedroom and balcony. The outdoor shower and hot tub were also nice touches. We enjoyed the convenience of being able to drive onto the beach. There was a pack n' play for our toddler to sleep in and beach toys for him to play with. We saw horses daily and they came as close as the front steps on our last morning.
Would highly recommend!!

Fantastic House, Peaceful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 (ages 17-mature) just spent a wonderful week at this house! The owners are very easy to work with and answered all my questions. The website pictures are spot on and you won't have any unpleasant surprises. The house is clean and well maintained. Swan Beach is a beautiful unspoiled area with natural beauty everywhere. We awakened with the sun and slept soundly on a very comfortable bed after our nightly soak in the hot tub. No watches required.
During our stay we saw multiple horses, most spectacularly walking along the beach. The horses are so relaxing to watch and have a calming effect on the soul. My daughter remarked that they are like large therapy dogs quietly going about, soothing the hurried traveler. They make us just stop, watch, appreciate.
Of course we also took in some of the local sites. We visited the Wild Horse Museum which was small but so good,very informative. We climbed the Currituck Light house, toured the Whalehead Club, and enjoyed food and shopping in the old Corolla Village. Our most memorable meal was at Mike Dianna's Grill Room located in the TimBuck ll shopping center. My husband and I agreed that this was the best meal we have ever had! Expensive but worth it. Get there at opening or you may need a reservation.
A few informational items: You MUST have a 4x4 to get around in the sand. We reduced our tire pressure from 40 to 22-24 for sand driving. Use mile marker 16.5 as owners suggest even though house located at MM 17. Purchase the water offered, it just tastes better. We only needed 1 bottle. We rented sheets and towels from Oceans Atlantic which were very comfortable. The owners also offer a bedding package which I just forgot about or I may have used that.
Overall, we enjoyed a fun,relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting. Thank you Tom and Diane for sharing The Red Octopus with us!

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the "Red Octopus". My two little girls really loved seeing the horses everyday. We choose to stay here because the house had all the modern amenities, but is located on a quiet section of the beach. We plan to stay here again in the future.

Beautiful House. Exactly as pictured.

  • 5 of 5
2 families with children ranging from 3 to 13 shared the house for a week. What a wonderful vacation. The home is exactly as pictured. The idyllic setting combines natural beauty with the comfort of a thoroughly modern home. It's a short walk to the beach, however, you'll love the convenience of being able to haul all of your stuff down in your vehicle and having it with you all day long. At the end of the day, we often enjoyed a home cooked meal out on the deck, taking in the scenery, cool breezes, and the occasional passing horse. (Actually saw many horses during the week, including several that stopped by the Red Octopus' yard).

The owners were very responsive and wonderful to work with. Can't say enough good things about the Red Octopus.

There are wild horse tours you can take but, the ponies come right to the front door. Why pay to see them when they come to see you!
