About Lynn or Rich Hoffmann
We're Outer Banks Vacationers since 1980 and homeowners since 2010. We love the Outer Banks and spend a lot of time here especially in the off season. We take good care of our home
and keep it to a high standard actively managing Spice of Life.
We actively manage and own three homes in Corolla and Duck that we keep in the best condition that we can for our guests and families. It's our goal to make our homes part of your memories and good times while vacationing here and earn your reservation repeatedly
Our newest, this Whalehead community oceanfront
'The Spice of Life', is named after a restaurant Lynn owned in Arlington, VA. from 1994- 2005 and also from 2009 - 2013. We like having Spice in our Life!
Lynn or Rich Hoffmann purchased this house in 2013
Why Lynn or Rich Hoffmann chose Corolla
This is a dream we shared:
An oceanfront home for our family to use and enjoy and a great vacation property to manage.
We intend it to be a magnet to bring our family & friends together for years to come.
The significant enhancements in 2014. make
'Spice of Life' suitable for Weddings, Family Reunions and Special Events in addition to being a wonderful setting for vacationing.
A large outdoor pool with a kiddie pool (similar to the one at our other Corolla Property #56291) and a wet deck are a few of the custom features we've enjoyed adding to our home.
What makes this house unique
Direct Oceanfront Beach Access! Views! Big Decks! Huge Bedrooms with Multiple Spaces for being together, a variety of games & activities or space to find some privacy. Extra Big Grass Yard for a variety of activities and uses. Many homes have some of these things but not many have all of them. And can claim to be Very Convenient to Shopping, Restaurants and Services and Local Sightseeing.
