About Rick or Mary Ann Amari

We live in Ohio and have enjoyed the Outerbanks for about 25 years. Each year we spend 4-6 weeks in the fall and again in the spring on the OBX with most of our time spent doing home improvements, upgrades, and maintenance to keep the home in tip-top shape.

Rick or Mary Ann Amari purchased this house in 2005

Why Rick or Mary Ann Amari chose Corolla

Corolla is less comercialized than most of the communities on the OBX and Buck Island is very quiet and laid back. But, our location enjoys the convenience of nearby shopping and restaurants all within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Relaxation, convenience, and the beach! Tree lined sidewalks and paved streets with street lights, private, gated community with superior community amenities conveniently located in the heart of Corolla.

beautiful neighborhood and perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many houses over the years for our family's annual vacation. This was the first time that we arrived to find EVERYTHING we could possibly need to start our vacation already in place and waiting for us! It started with a lovely welcome bag with household items and a beach blanket inside. I didn't need to worry about a thing! The kitchen and bathrooms were completely stocked and ready for our arrival. Towels and linens were fresh and plentiful. The house is beautifully decorated and the neighborhood is pristine! The daily walk to the beach was one of my favorite things! The ponds with turtles were such beautiful scenery and the boardwalk to the beach was so easy to use! Location was awesome! Shops across the street and a grocery store next door. But when you were in the gated neighborhood, you felt completely private and away from it all! We would definitely rent from Mary Ann again! She was great with communication and super fast answering any questions or concerns! We couldn't have been more pleased! Great rental!!!

This was a wonderful vacation! This beautiful house was furnished with everything we needed!! We didn't want to leave. The private, gated community is absolutely STUNNING! My daughter had fun feeding the turtles that are in the pond. The beach is beautiful and we did use the cabana services. Brad had our umbrella set up every morning. We cooked our food a lot...but we did eat out at Awful Author's . It was yummy!!! Perfect, safe place for your family. Saw a lot of dogs. Wish we could have brought ours. Thanks Ann! Hoping to be back next year!!

Great rental

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home & this area of OBX. We were in walking distance from the grocery store, restaurants, & entertainment. The private subdivision with side walks & private bathroom & life guard made the vacation even better.

First time to OBX

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful! They thought of everything you could possibly need while staying there. This was my family's first time to the Outer Banks and we definitely will be coming back again next year and staying in this same house. This house exceeded all of our expectations! The owner's of this home have been nothing but pleasant and are quick to return e-mails if you should have any questions while staying there!

OBX Trip-Twice the fun 1

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this house. We have stayed all over the US and this home by far exceeds the other places we have rented. Every detail has been thought about and provided. The kitchen has everything you could ever need and the house itself has chairs, cribs, beach toys and the list goes on and on. All you have to do is show up with your groceries and start having fun. The decor is top notch and it is very very clean and well kept! You cant go wrong staying here. I hope your family enjoys this place as much as we have. A++ property
