We first ventured to Corolla in 2005, and in the last 8 years, we head down as often as our schedule allows. We enjoy the northern end of Corolla, and the offseason stillness and beauty of the undisturbed wilderness.
We purchased 'Wish' in 2008 because we knew it could be a great place for families to vacation in the OBX. 'Wish' had never been rented before and previously was used as a private family vacation home. With all the giant homes around, there seems to be a lack of homes more suited to smaller groups that didn't want to stay with 3 or 4 other families.
'Wish' had great bones and a warm feeling when you entered the door, a wonderful open floor plan, and lots of juniper on the walls - she just needed some TLC and updating to bring her to her full potential. What really hooked us was the note on the blackboard in the kitchen - it said 'We are truly going to miss this house'.
So we took it upon ourselves to create a place where others could have wonderful family vacation memories. We all have a place like that in our past - where you reminisce about your wonderful family vacations, and we truly hope we have given others a place to think about and smile from the memories.
The rooftop deck at dusk is a must. The amazing sound views reflects the colors in the sky. The huge private pool and pool area is a great way to spend the day. Or it's just a short straight walk to the beach for a day of sun and sand. The single floor living is easy for families with small children, and the loft area makes a great getaway for games, tv, crafts or reading. The house is pet-free, smoke-free, and hardwood floors prevail making it comfortable for those with allergies.
