Overview

Corolla House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, kid-friendly rec room, hot tub, 10 bikes, free WiFi!

Welcome to Seas-the-Day Corolla, a perfect home-away-from-home in the Outer Banks!

Whether you come to Corolla for the wild horses, Currituck Lighthouse, Whalehead Club, or the unbeatable beaches, you’ll love staying at Seas-the-Day. We’ve put a lot of thought into equipping the house with everything a family might need for a fantastic vacation — so that you barely need to bring a thing!

Some of the amenities that our guests have loved most include the bikes, kayaks, beach gear, and game room. And of course don’t forget to try the hammock and hot tub!

As part of the Villages at Ocean Hill community, your stay also includes (all within minutes’ walk): private access to the beach, two swimming pools, a fitness center, tennis and basketball courts, a playground, and a turtle-filled lake (they love Cheerios!).

The house is a 2-minute drive from the wild horse sanctuary of Carova Beach (4WD-accessible), and a 5-minute walk from the nature trail leading to the sound. Miles of newly paved paths just outside the community are perfect for biking, running, or walking.

The house itself is a spacious and relaxing retreat. The heart of the house is the open-concept top floor, which has high ceilings, lots of light, and great views of the lighthouse. This floor includes a full kitchen with bar seating, dining table, sweetheart table (total seating for up to 14), half-bathroom, and three comfy couches for lounging — plus access to a 7-person hot tub, a screened-in porch with table and chairs, and sliding glass doors to a deck with sun loungers. The kitchen includes plenty of glasses, tumblers, dishware, cookware, and appliances (including an icemaker, blender, coffeemaker, 4-slot toaster, and toaster oven) — and even a couple coolers for days at the beach. You can also take advantage of an outdoor charcoal grill and fish cleaning table. The living area comes equipped with a flat-screen TV, DVD/Blu-Ray player, surround-sound stereo, and lots of games and puzzles. And of course, there is free WiFi.

The master bedroom is also located on the top floor, with a king-size bed, full bath, flat-screen TV, and sliding glass doors to the hot tub deck.

The second floor is home to three bedrooms. Another master bedroom here features a queen-size bed, full bath, flat-screen TV, and sliding glass doors to a wraparound deck with a rope hammock and a swing chair where you can read, nap, and daydream. The “green room” is perfect for a young family or up to 4 kids, with a full+twin bunk bed and a separate twin bed. The “floral room” has 2 twin beds that can easily be pushed together if you prefer. Rounding out the second floor are a large full bathroom and laundry area with washer, dryer, and extra towels, as well as another main entrance off the hammock deck to the house.

The last bedroom on the ground floor doubles as a recreation room, sure to be the kids’ favorite! An arcade-style basketball game and foosball/air hockey/ping pong table offer fun distractions, along with a TV/VCR/DVD/stereo setup and mini-library of books. This room contains a full+twin bunk as well as a pullout sleeper sofa and loveseat. The ground floor also has a half bathroom.

When you’re planning your activities, be sure to check out the bikes, kayaks, and beach gear (chairs, umbrellas, cart, boogie boards, and toys) we’ve provided! And when you’re back from the beach, the private outdoor shower (with both hot and cold water) is the perfect way to rinse off and unwind.

Enjoy your stay at Seas-the-Day!

Great fun!

We had a great time at "Seas-the-day"! We were accompanied by our son, daughter, their spouses and 4 grandchildren. The house is large! We all had a special place, and of course mine was sitting in the wonderful swing reading! I must say, we stay a lot (mostly in Florida) and this was the first time we really didn't need to bring a thing for the beach! It was a dream come true. There were chairs, carts, coolers, and the bikes! Oh my, my husband and I rode bikes. It was just like home. The house was very clean and the pictures didn't do it justice. Our only complaint were the sides in the restaurants. Coming from the midwest we just aren't used to mashed potatoes and green beans with sea food. That of course, has nothing to do with the house and area, just an observation. I would recommend this house to anyone, especailly groups. It is ideal. We really hope to return. Make sure to take advantage of the bikes and that awesome beach! The pools are wonderful at the property. There is a beautiful hot tub at the house, but we didn't use it, just not enough hours in our days! Thanks so much to the Barrett's for sharing. Just one more thing, Kevin is wonderful! His family couldn't be nicer! He is a true gem!

Wonderful house in a wonderful neighborhood in a wonderful part of the Outer Banks. This house has every amenity for a successful vacation for the entire family, including those with very young children. Plenty of TVs, lots of bikes, lots of beach chairs and toys, absolutely excellent kitchen. Very easy walk to the lakeside pool. Easy trip to the beach and beachside pool with plenty of parking. Easy access to the wild horse preserve, a national treasure, the lighthouse, shopping and restaurants. Thanks to the Barretts for making this incredible house available.

Mr. Barret,

I wanted to thank you for allowing us to rent your house. We had a great time! The house was wonderful and the weather was perfect. We felt very at home. The community was quiet and perfect for a relaxing vacation. Having Kevin next door was also very helpful. He was very kind in answering our questions and making suggestions.

Again, thank you for opening your home to us. We look forward to visiting OBX again.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Barrett:

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your home last week. I have to say we were more than impressed as we walked into this absolutely beautiful home! It has a wonderful peace that surrounds it, very relaxing. Thank you so much for the welcome gift - needless to say that was another surprise! Thank you.

The bikes were a real blessing for the kids as they gave an additional area of freedom for the older ones. The enjoyed riding the to lighthouse, out for pizza etc. The location of the pools, lake, basketball courts etc. were excellent given the age range of the kids we had along.

If you are planning on renting again next summer please let me know as soon as you post the rates and schedule. Everyone agreed that this was the perfect set-up and I believe we would love to use it again next year.

Many blessings,

Ruth

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for sharing your house with us. We had a wonderful vacation. Both my parents and all my kids agree that it was one of our better trips. According to my mom, we need to go back every year. During our stay, we did some kayaking, took the jeep tour to see the wild horses, did 2 large puzzles during the days it rained, rode bicycles, checked out the lighthouse, worked out at the fitness center, lounged on the beach, body surfed in the waves, and built many sand castles. Sounds like a lot but it was very relaxing. Also, I wanted you to know that Kevin was just wonderful. When the maids did not show up on Sunday to clean the house due to weather he made sure that another cleaning company came to help out. He was also very enjoyable to talk to. You are very lucky to have someone that nice next door to watch over things for you. Well, thanks again for sharing your home with us! Take care Jackie and Family PS We did leave our body boards behind in your shed for other guests to share. We just couldn't take them on the plane and my parents didn't have room to fit them in their car. There were 2 medium sized ones and 1 smaller one. They were well worth the money (all of $45) since the kids used them for hours everyday we went to the beach.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Barrett;

Your home is wonderful and the area is as glorious as can be.

We had a wonderful time and can't thank you enough.

Here are some pictures of "your" wild horses. Hope you enjoy them.

It was a thrill to see them roaming free.

Sincerely Hank and Pam

Very satisfied guests.
