About Bob and Jane Soluri

We spent our first vacation in Corolla in 2000 and it was love at first sight. Before we returned home, we had signed a contract to build our dream vacation home. We loved the views and the big skies. Having grown up in Washington DC proper, we were thrilled to be able to walk to shops and restaurants. It feels remote and yet is so convenient. We eventually retired to the Outer Banks, building our permanent home in Kitty Hawk.

Bob and Jane Soluri purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Bob and Jane Soluri chose Corolla

Our housekeeper tells us that she loves to clean our cottage. Not only is it a cheerful place to work, but she says that the guests always leave it in good condition, making her job easier. We believe that when we treat our guests right, they return the favor and take good care of our home. Every item in the cottage was chosen with care, including some antique pieces like the fireplace mantle that we found in a Frederick MD antique shop and adapted to fit our contemporary setting. We especially enjoyed collecting the art work that you'll find throughout the house. The wall of windows in the great room brings the outdoors in and makes you feel a part of the natural setting.

What makes this cottage unique

From the front porch glider to the crystal clear pool in back, we strive to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Shaded parking is a big bonus on hot summer days. The ground level fun room with a foosball table can be used as a 4th bedroom since it has a sleep sofa, closet and full bath. Just outside the sliding glass doors is the inground pool with adjacent and roomy private outdoor shower. Walk to the beach or drive to conveniently sited parking pads in Whalehead.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I have made the trek to the Outer Banks at least once almost every year. Many of our stays have been in more remote areas (which sound great until you realize you need to grab something from the store, or want to take the family to dinner). Corolla is a great place to stay; you have access to pristine, roomy beaches, recreation and convenience all at once. Staying at "Joyful Sound" made our experience even more perfect. It was very well furnished, clean, full of light and very comfortable. Our kids LOVED the pool. During our stay, I had to catch up on a few items for clients and it was wonderful to be able to work from the 2nd story deck overlooking the pool and still be involved. Another huge bonus was being able to put the kids to bed upstairs and relax with the grandparents downstairs. If you're planning to visit the Outer Banks soon, put "Joyful Sound" in Corolla at the very top of your list! (BTW, don't let the Sept. season scare you off, we've been in OBX the last week in August as well as the first and second week of Sept. and they were all amazing experiences.)

Joyful Sound did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5
Joyful Sound did not disappoint us in any way. The home is located on the sound side in Monteray Shores giving you easy access to everything. We discovered that you can go nowhere fast in OBX so a location close to the grocery store, restaurants, beach, and shopping is a plus. It’s an easy walk to all of them but where the house is located you would never know it, quiet. All you hear is the sound and the crickets. We did walk to the beach several times but when loaded down with chairs, umbrellas, cooler, etc. it’s just far enough that you would probably drive and park by the beach. The house was clean and reserving the house with Jane was a breeze. The pool at the house was nice to have; we never used the one at the club house. There was a bin containing all sorts of beach and pool toys. There is a balcony off the front and the back of the house perfect for reading or a morning cup of coffee. The kitchen was not huge but large enough and well stocked. The dining room had ample seating for everyone. The master is on the main floor with 2 bedrooms, bath and a loft on the upper level. We would highly recommend Joyful Sound.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a week and had a great time. It had everything we needed and was close to a supermarket and several restaurants. Everything was just a short drive away. We especially liked the pool. After a day at the beach, riding boogie boards and dodging waves, it was nice to come back to the house, grab a float and relax in the pool. The only challenge we faced was the Saturday traffic on Route 12.

Joyful Sound

  • 5 of 5
We had another beautiful week at Joyful Sound! This house works perfectly for our family of four. We also had an additional small family with us and we had more than enough space. The private pool is such a nice bonus. Plus the location is perfect and close to all stores, restaurants, etc. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful home!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family loved this home! The house was clean, well stocked and had a great layout. The kids loved having their own pool. It was great having the clubhouse to use. There were many activities for kids and we rented kayaks from them while there. We enjoyed the sunsets at the pier at the end of the street. Kids will love the turtles by the pier and we even had a tree frog visit the pool. The beaches at Whalehead were close by and very clean. Many shops and restaurants were located nearby which was very convenient. Definitely would rent again if in the Outer Banks.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this house! The house was well stocked with everything that we needed. My daughter and her friend loved having the pool and enjoyed seeing the turtles that live down the street at the pier. The beach and shopping were close by and there were plenty of activities nearby. Plenty to do at the clubhouse also. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in Joyful Sound and enjoyed it greatly. Access to the clubhouse was wonderful, and we took advantage of the youth activities offered there. The home is clean and well-maintained, with space for our entire family. We loved the pool, and nearby access to the beach and sound. We would definately return!

Monteray Shores combines the serenity of a Soundside community along with the convenience of walking proximity to both the ocean and the sound in addition to appealing shops, restaurants and entertainment for the whole family. The broad beaches of Corolla are known for soft white sand and long, rolling surf. Currituck Lighthouse, The Whalehead Club and Currituck Wildlife Center are just 3 miles north. And be sure to tour the off-road to see the wild horses descended from shipwrecked Spanish mustangs.
