Guestbook comments from the owner

First off, we absolutely loved the house! It was very clean and spacious! Very relaxing! The beach and ocean was beautiful. Oh, and we loved the pond and seeing all the turtles! We had a great week and really don't want to go home! We will definitely have to come back in the future! The washer, dryer, and hot tub was a big plus!

Great week in Corolla!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and comfortable for 6 adults. The location was perfect! We enjoyed riding bikes to the beach and local attractions. The hot tub was relaxing at the end of the day.

The house is clean, well-maintained and well-equipped. The hot tub worked fine. The house is nicely located, about 10 minutes walk to the beach.

Better than we even imagined!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. A small walk from the beach (about 7 minutes) and a nice pond to walk around! We totally overpacked not expecting that the house would have 98% of what we needed for our week stay. The house was very clean! The games were plenty (although we didn't get a chance to play any). The beach chairs came in handy and so did the bikes. The house stays VERY cool considering the heat index was around 108 most days. Very impressed and not disappointed at all. The only issue we even had were a few blinds that wouldn't open but they were on windows we really didn't care to have open in the family room. The other was on the vertical blinds on the patio in the family room but we just would slide it open anyway and enjoy the breeze through the screen so that was fine. Also had a minor issue with the kitchen sink being loose but maintenance came and fixed it. Again ...nothing that took away from our FIRST OBX VACATION EXPERIENCE!! I'd totally recommend this house. Close to restaurants and stores. I'd definitely stay here again! Thanks so much for allowing me and my family and my 4 legged child (dog) to stay in your home!

The house is very well maintained, spacious, and comfortable. Wireless internet which is essential for us was available and easilty accessible. It is located close to grocery and restaurant locations. The area is well developed and could be a detraction in the summer if someone is looking for peace and quiet.

We were looking for all the beauty and quiet that off season brings. It was a wonderful stay. The beach is a quick walk away with few neighbors in residence. The unexpected conveniences in the area were a pleasant surprise

Thank you for the opportunity.

Owner's Response: Dear Richard and Family: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our beach home in Corolla, which we call Les Sables. We have tried to think of and provide our guests with many of the conveniences that you would expect in your own home. Also, with the choice of two year around grocery stores within minutes of the house, it's a convenient location. You made a great choice to stay in our home in October. It is a beautiful month to visit our wide beach, when the days are bright and sunny, the water is still warm enough to swim, and the evenings are crisp and cool. Thank you for your kind words. We hope you will consider staying in our home in the future. Best wishes, The Hendrick Family

Corolla vacation

  • 4 of 5

Amazing place! The ocean tide is perfect for the kids, just like a pool. Not so much for the grown ups who want to run waves.

Beautiful beach and plenty of touring to do: dolphin and wild horse watching. Expect to spend quite an amount of cash. Places to minigolf are very clean and entertaining. Even my 4 yr old with a cast on had fun!

Great customer treatment from all businesses over there.

Owner's Response: Hi Fiorella: We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our home in Corolla The beach in our area is the best of the Outer Banks. Sometimes, depending on the tides, and the weather, the water is very calm and comfortable, suitable water play for younger vacationers, like your son, and at other times, it's a surfer's best friend with lots of wave action. Hope you will consider coming back to stay at our home, Les Sables. Regards, Karen and Bob Hendrick, and Family Les Sables Corolla, NC
