Why Phil or Cheryl chose Corolla

Vacationing in the Outer Banks, is like no other beach vacation you have ever experienced. It's hard to explain. However, once you have spent some time here; you will know what we mean. That's why we chose to own property here and share the unique experience with others.

What makes this house unique

The starfilled night skies, thrilling sunrises, breathtaking sunsets, unspoiled beaches, friendly natives, relaxing pace, refreshing hot tub and private pool are some of what's awaiting guests to Flights of Fancy!

2nd Year in a Row at Flights of Fancy

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends loved this place so much we came back again a second summer in a row to the same house. The home had all that we needed plus the pool and hot tub. Plenty of room for folks to spread out if they wanted or to hang out together! It's a dog friendly home with shaded decks so the dogs could be outside but not in the sun. The house has great views from the deck, its a short walk to the ocean. We often came back to the house for lunch and back to the beach. Dog friendly beach, although we only brought our dogs on early and the morning and later in the evening. But if you have a dog who would stay at your beach blanket, you could have them with you on the beach. Great surf for body surfing and boogie boards! Also, across from the grocery store is the BEST outdoor seafood market. We grill seafood every night. They had the best crab cakes along with so many other options! There are plenty of places to go out to eat. We went over to Timbuck II shopping area one night and ate at "Upside" which was wonderful. Deck for outdoor eating. Great food, drinks and service! We also hit Northern Lights Bakery but go early....there will be a line and they will run out of great donuts and pastries! Don't forget to sign up for the 5K run/walk by Runcations held every Wednesday during the summer! A few of us also went parasailing out of Timbuck II. So much fun!!!1

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacationed at Corolla’s Flight of Fancy from July 21st thru July 28th 2013. Upon arrival, we found the house ready and very well cleaned. The pictures of Flight of Fancy do not do the house justice as it’s much larger than the photos depict! We found that our number of house guests (at 16) were extremely comfortable with the space and we were all able to gather for meals with seats to spare! The house itself is well taken care of and well planned. Our family loved the continuous deck which included an observation deck for wonderful views of the sound and beach. The deck also included the following: a hammock, hammock chair for two as well as outdoor table and chairs where we enjoyed the view with our morning coffee. We enjoyed the private outdoor shower with hot water and the outdoor sound system for us to enjoy while using the pool and hot tub. Our dog loved the spacious yard and the deck and we enjoyed having plenty of outdoor space as well. For us, Flight’s of Fancy’s location was ideal. The house was not too close to the beach but close enough for a quick walk to the beach. The backyard included trees and flora that gave us privacy during our pool use. The driveway was very large and easily accommodated six cars and more if we needed. It seemed that during our stay, our every need was met in reference to maintenance. The pool service came twice to check and maintain the pool & hot tub and just when the grass started to get a little bit high, the lawn service came the next morning. The owner of the house is nice and very easy to work with. Upon returning home, my husband discovered that he left his itouch at the house, the owner called the rental company and found out the cleaning service turned in my husband’s itouch -WOW - very honest people and rental company to deal with. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and vacation at Flights of Fancy as everything exceeded our expectations!

Our home awaw from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Flights of Fancy for almost 10 years. We stay twice a year, and now for three weeks a year. The house is comfortable, has everything you need, and is extremely well maintained, whether it is early in May, or in October, after a busy summer season. The location in Whalehead is the best, just right off 12N, no long blocks with stop signs. Easy walk to the beach, and the best sunrises and sunsets ever. Great pool and hot tub.

Phil and Cheryle obviously take pride in their home, and you can tell they love to share it with other OBX addicts, like ourselves. Both sides of our family take turns visiting with us, and now friends join us for a week also. I highly recommend Flights of Fancy. You will get a great house, a well-appointed kitchen, comfort and relaxation. We can hardly wait to get back again this fall...and have already reserved for next spring! It truly is a home away from home, except chores!!!

Thanks Phil and Cheryle for a super house and many great vacations!

Ideal Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The property is centrally located in Corolla and has all the amenities a family needs to enjoy a vacation. We enjoyed taking a break from the beach for a cookout with family games of horse shoes, volleyball and basketball. The pool and hot tub are a bonus! The multilevel decks were unique and the relaxing hammock was ideal for reading a good book. Beach access is just about a 5 minute walk away and the Food Lion and other shops are accessible just minutes by car without having to get on the main roadway. I can't say enough about the amenities and the great design of the property. Thank you for a GREAT vacation!
