Castle by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Castle by the Sea. It goes without saying that the location is magnificent. Each morning we watched the sunrise over the ocean. One morning we saw a group of Dolphins swim by. We had good weather, so we really enjoyed walking/ playing on the beach.

The house is spacious and easily accommodates a large family group. There are tons of bedrooms and wonderful hot tubs in many of them. The little kids loved the baths at night in what seemed like a swimming pool to them.

There are plenty of spots for different family members to enjoy time to themselves, and large spaces where we could all be together. While we were too late in the season for the pool, we really enjoyed the out door hot tub.

The house is generally well appointed. The kitchen quite well stocked (although not as well as last year). My guess is that various guests throughout the season have taken their toll on that.

Same with the house, there were some minor repairs that need to be completed before the start of the new season, but overall we loved our week at the Castle, particularly because of the beautiful setting and the spaciousness that allows for both our children and their families to be together.

Castle by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a relaxing week here recently - we would not hesitate to come back in the future. Located on a nice stretch of Whalehead Beach, the house offers incredible ocean views from the upper level rooms and the large decks. The centerpiece of our week however, was the pool area. A multilevel design with beautiful tile work, a waterfall and wading pool (for the little ones you may have) made it a fabulous place to hang out. A large well-located hot tub provides a relaxing way to wrap up the day. The only caveat I'll mention is that, like most rental properties, the house has seen some wear and tear. Any issues we had were trivial and far outweighed by our overall experience. Bill, the owner, was very responsive to our questions and was a delight to work with. We're looking forward to a return visit.

"The Castle"

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful week at "The Castle" as my grandchildren referred to this exceptional property. Each adult couple had a large bedroom with an attached bathroom with a whirlpool tub. The kids shared the full/twin room and the bunk room. We did not need to use the pull-out sofabed on the first level. We also made use of the nursery with the crib. The home really accommodated our family's needs. We loved the big pool and the baby pool and there were plenty of floatables to use in the pool and body boards for riding waves at the beach. The bathroom off the beach walkway was great.....very convenient and kept sand out of the main house. Adults made use of hot tub at night. Good for soothing our muscles from days of surfing, skimming, and body boarding.

Terrific Time - Great House - Awesome Service by Owner

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Castle By the Sea and we are planning on doing it again. The home is designed very nicely to accommodate a large group; 7 adults and 5 children in our case. During our week a hurricane was just offshore and due to the cool weather we decided to have the pool heated (Additional cost). The owner accommodated our request immediately and we got a lot of use out of the pool...especially on the days the beach was closed due to rip tides. Also, the refrigerator in the basement was broken and he ordered a new one to arrive while we were there. The owner ensured we had an excellent time in his home....definitely a pleasure to work with him!

OUTSTANDING HOUSE FOR MULTI GENERATION FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a truly wonderful week at Castle By The Sea. The house was perfect for our large group including four generations and 5 separate families. There was a total of 15 over the week’s time, 9 adults and 6 children from 8 months to 16 years old. Each family had their own area for privacy yet we all gathered together several times each day in the large gathering areas. The dining space was perfect to accommodate everyone yet allow easy communication. The larger table easily seated the older folks while the younger group was happy with the adjacent smaller octagonal table. Conversation between both groups flowed easily.

There was a myriad of activities available with many things to suit everyone from the marvelous pools (both baby and very large regular pool), the hot tub, beach access including a nice deck along the walk to watch the beach. All of the areas were in excellent repair and some pool toys were provided at the house. In addition, there were rental businesses close by that offered everything else anyone could wish at quite reasonable prices. So, our group took advantage of renting beach chairs and umbrellas, bogie boards, surfboards and kayaks…all of which were enjoyably used. We also enjoyed a Wild Horse Tour – fun for all.

The gathering, dining and bedroom areas all had access to either a private or general deck all with marvelous ocean views. All of the decks were in great shape. The bedrooms were all well appointed with full linens (bed and bath) and comfortable beds. All four master bedrooms have attached baths and deck access. Everything throughout the house was in good working order with the exception of a second small refrigerator on the lowest floor. An ice machine located in the kitchen was absolutely wonderful and a great help.

The kitchen is very well appointed providing plenty of dishes, serving dishes, pots and pans and anything else needed to prepare and serve meals to large groups. The two coffee makers requiring only ground coffee of our choosing worked very well and were easy to use. We took advantage of having the two dishwashers by running one while filling the other so we always had clean dishes to use.

The owner was excellent to work with throughout the process from reservation to check in and during the time we were at the home.

All in all, this was a very special week for our entire family made even better by all that Castle By The Sea offered to make our stay utterly fantastic.

Castle by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Castle by the Sea on Sunday May 18, 2014. This house sits oceanfront and is beautiful inside and out. Private walkway to the beach, huge private pool and waterfall, hottub, and a very nice well maintained deck around it all. The deck furniture was very nice you could tell the owners care a lot about this house. The inside was beautiful. The kitchen was very well stocked. There were nice flat screen TV's in all the bedrooms. Downstairs there was a pool table and a arcade game. Huge TV in the living room with plenty of places to sit. This home was very close to everything. Minutes from Foodlion, and Harris Teeter. Just a bike ride from Corolla Light Town Center, Currituck Heritage Park, Whalehead Club, and the Currituck Lighthouse. The owners were very helpful with questions we had. I would recommend this house to everyone. I plan on staying there again.
