We can not tell you what a wonderful house this is. We had the most relaxing time just being in the house. Beautiful, quiet, peaceful grounds and the house put together as if for friends, not strangers. The owner has thought of our every need and comfort. The house, location, restaurants, beach and shopping were exactly what we wanted. Everything was so accessible. We couldn't have imagined anything better! Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us.

We have been vacationing in Corolla for years and by far, this is the best house we have ever stayed in. It is easy to see that the owner wants to share their home with you. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed including a kitchen that had all the extras we needed to cook whatever we wanted. The pool is big and had all types of rafts and water chairs to relax in.... and relax we did! We had five of our adult kids with us and our granddaughter and if you have young children, it is like a kids paradise. Playhouses, carts, bikes, everything a child could want. Although it is a couple blocks from the beach, it was an easy walk to the access point and if you have a truck like us, you can fill the back with chairs and park in the public lot next to the access.
We had a wonderful week with our kids and would recommend this house to anyone!!
