About cindy Francis

I grew up coming to the Outer banks since I was a kid myself. My parents have always had a place for us to come visit. I have such special family memories here. Now that I have two teenagers, I want to make sure we have a place for them to always come back to. Especially once they get older and have families of their own. I Hope you enjoy our home and have those special family gatherings here.

cindy Francis purchased this house in 2013

Why cindy Francis chose Corolla

We purchased this property because of its close proximity to the beach and all activities. Our kids can bike to almost all activities in Corolla without being on a major road. Whalehead Dr. can take you to the bike paths in Corolla light or down to Monteray plaza for ice cream and a movie. The Whalehead community offers some of the largest lots in Corolla. Providing for great family lawn games, volleyball, horseshoes or beanbag.

great!

We really enjoyed our mini vacation to the OBX and staying at "A Dream Come True". Location is near perfect, close to beach walkway, close to the shops/restaurants right outside of Whalehead. The house itself was great. Large living area, plenty of bedrooms, nice rec room; tons of plates/glasses/dishware etc which is a small point but is very convenient if you have a large group (even though we did not). Views of the ocean from upper balconies and crow's nest. It met our needs perfectly. I would have liked the pool to be open, as it was mid 70's and sunny the whole time we were there, but I understand that's not always the case in mid April. My only other suggestion would be to transition the grass volleyball court to sand.

Overall, a great home in a great location. We would definitely stay there again in a heartbeat. Thanks!

Loved the place, only suggestion would be to have a gas grill vs. Charcoal grill.

Owner's Response: Great Idea! We've just had our home for a year, we've been busy redoing the inside. Happy to add a gas grill for next yr.

We had a lovely time. Our first visit to Corolla. There to attend my nephews wedding and decide to take the week to enjoy. The house was perfect for our needs. We has ages from 9 months to 53. The pool was beautiful, we did brave the cool water just to enjoy. Lots of time on the beach. The only problem we had was running up and down the stairs with our 2 1/2 yr old grandson. But we all needed the exercise after all the great food Corolla had to offer. Need to check out the Sunset Grill.
