Thanks for looking! My name is Lane McIntosh and I reside near Shepherdstown, West Virginia when I am not enjoying 'Simply Heaven' in Corolla, North Carolina. I am a 1995 graduate of Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia and am a professional in the real estate industry.

Lane McIntosh purchased this cottage in 2006

In 2006 I was on a quest to find a 'fortress of solitude' to occasionally alleviate life's trials and tribulations. I wanted a place that offered peace, solitude, limited commercialization and spectacular beauty -- but not too far from essential necessities and amenities. After visiting countless properties in the Mid-Atlantic and the South, I stumbled upon 'Simply Heaven' by chance. My first time driving up the beach to the house almost left me speechless with all of the natural beauty. As I arrived at the house, the yard was filled with wild horses. I half-jokingly asked the seller if he had everything put on display to secure the sale. Within seconds of looking out the windows, I knew that this was the place for me!

What 'Simply Heaven' lacks in size it makes up with views and scenery that many houses ten times its size do not have. If you're looking for a relaxing family atmosphere with ocean and beach views from every bedroom, Corolla's famous wild horses, deer, fox, dolphins or an occasional sea turtle, you will find it here. If you're looking for fast food, convenience stores, wild nightlife, you will not. But! 'Simply Heaven' is located just 2.8 miles up the beach so you are far enough away but just close enough.

The Name Says It All

  • 4 of 5
Is this Heaven? No, it's the Outer Banks. This was our first trip to the 4x4 beach and it was everything you can imagine - quiet, peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful. The house is cozy and clean with pretty much all the amenities you need. Be prepared though to bring everything you'll need for cooking as running back and forth to the grocery store is not an option. There are great views from the decks and it's a short walk to the beach whether you take a path or head up over the dunes (which my dog insisted on!). The biggest treat was watching the wild ponies; it's stunning how close they will get to the house. There had been a lot of rain shortly before our visit and some flooding which made for a difficult (and somewhat harrowing) trip in from the beach but the "roads" improved over the week. We did have an issue with the water pump going out a few times but the maintenance company was quick to respond and we managed to get it going ourselves without them having to come out. We had a wonderfully relaxing week and hopefully we will be returning next year. I almost didn't write this review as I'd like to keep this place a secret!

Our stay at "simply heaven" was just that - simply heaven. The peace, the beauty of nature, the gorgeous sunrises, and the lovely home were just what the doctor ordered. We will be back!

Perfect spot to relax

  • 5 of 5
We have vacationed in the OBX for several years. This was our first visit to the 4x4 area and based on this experience we will definitely visit the Corolla 4x4 area again. The location is amazing, very peaceful and definitey what we were looking for to get away and relax. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. We couldn't have been happier once we made our way thru the traffic. We sat back and watched horses stroll past the front and back of the house on a daily basis. Pizza delivery is available from Beach Road Pizza if your family is interested, we tried it and everything was great. Plan ahead for heavy traffic in peak times of summer. Once you get to the house you can leave all the stress behind and relax. Our dog had a great time as well so thanks for offering a dog friendly home.

A Gem

  • 5 of 5
The property name says it all.
We were looking for a single family house on the beach - remote enough to feel away from it all, but not too many miles up the 4x4 section. Simply Heaven fit the bill perfectly.
The house had all the amenities we needed to cook in most nights and the outdoor shower was especially useful.
The house actually has 2.5 baths, was clean neat and tidy and would be top of our list for our next trip to OBX.

Our first stay

  • 5 of 5
My family absolutely loved staying here, the location is perfect, the house was perfect. It was the peace I have needed, I haven't been that relaxed since I don't know when. If you don't like the tourist scene, and clutter, by gosh, this is the place. We will definitely want to make this a yearly process. Heck, I loved it so much I want to retire here.

Perfect beach house in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
I would consider this to be ocean front! The perfect beach house in size and comfort. Each bedroom faces the ocean with its own entrance and balcony. Ocean to the front; bay to the back; dunes on each side. Everywhere you look is beauty, peace and quiet. Very comfortable and open living area with large kitchen. The layout of the house is ideal, and the wild horses add to the charm. I did not want to leave!

A 4-wheel drive vehicle is necessary to get there via the beach. This place is not for you if you want honky tonk and activity and like to run to the store often.
