Our newest, this Whalehead community oceanfront

Lynn or Rich Hoffmann purchased this house in 2013

This is a dream we shared. An oceanfront home for our

family to use and enjoy and a great vacation property to manage. Big plans are underway for significant enhancements for 2014.

Improvements to make 'the Spice' also suitable for Weddings, Family Reunions etc. will begin in December of 2014 A large outdoor pool with a kiddie pool (similar to the one at our other Corolla Property #56291) and a wet deck is on the drawing board. Extensive pool decks and backyard improvements will make the outdoor experiences at the beach house even better. The lower level will be completely remodeled with a bar

expanded media, game and sports areas are being built.

A seventh room with media sleeping accommodations will be on the upper level. Bedding and Furniture will be replaced and upgraded as well.

Wonderful stay with a big group!

We came down as a group of 18 for a fall weekend of surfing and playing on the beach. The house had enough room for 18 of us to interact without it feeling claustrophobic. The duel sinks and dishwashers made a huge difference in the food prep times. The dunes on the beach side of the house gave a very private feel. Lots of great decks and outdoor spaces to gather and enjoy the salt air. The house was clean and ready for us when we arrived late on our check in night. We are looking forward to another trip soon and would recommend this house without reservation.

Owner's Response: Glad the trip went as well as you hoped. Next time it will be even better - Thanks for trying The Spice of Life!

Spice of Life was a wonderful vacation home for our family and friends. The house was very clean and well maintained. Access to the beach and location were great! From chairs, umbrellas, kids toys to small appliances in the kitchen this house has everything you could possibly need. This was our first trip to the Outer Banks...We will be back! Thank you Lynn for sharing your home with us!

Our family of 11 returned three weeks ago from a very relaxing week at The Spice of Life. We were pleased to see the addition of a gas grill, the expanded usable yard and parking lot. The home was very clean and nicely maintained. We recommend this home for a wonderful vacation and we look forward to returning next season!

Vacation 21 at OBX

  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Two weeks ago, our family returned from our 21st year of week long vacations to the Outer Banks. It was our fourth year staying at the beach house now aptly named "The Spice of Life." The home has acquired new owners since our 2012 stay, hence the new name.

This spacious beach front house easily accommodates our sixteen member, three generations of family which ranges in age from 5 to 77 years. The new owner's, Lynn and Rich Hoffmann have made and plan to continue making improvements to the property. Expanded parking, new appliances and furniture, premium HD cable, new bicycles and keyless entry are just a few of the changes made the past year.

Lynn and Rich are very accommodating and are expending every effort in making "The Spice" a comfortable and relaxing vacation home away from home.

Lord willing and the creek don't rise, we all plan to return next year.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: There's more improvements coming your way and we'd be honored to
have the family tradition continue at "The Spice". We'll be in contact.
We don't want the creek - or any other nearby body of water - rising!
