About Mr. Smith

We are a family of 4, myself Clell, Carol my wife, Ian our son and Kendall our daughter. I am self employed and in the furniture and home decor industry, Carol is an executive IT consultant at Infrastructure Technology her own firm. We reside in Virginia Beach, two hours from Blue Haven and love the Outer Banks, surfing, being on the beach and in the water. I have been coming to this part of the North Banks since 74 (before there was as road or even any homes in Corolla) and never get tired of the place.

Mr. Smith purchased this house in 2004

Why Mr. Smith chose Corolla

Our home is located in one of the most unique places on the East Coast! We are next to the Currituck Sound where you can see some of the most amazing sunsets anywhere and within a short walk or bike ride you can be at the Ocean, an Historic Hunt Club (the Whalehead Club), Currituck Lighthouse, Historic Corolla Village, shops & restaurants. Also, the sound-front is community property in our neighborhood with almost 2 miles of waterfront to enjoy, we have a great Oceanfront Pool complex with Life Guarded beaches (in season), tennis courts and a great indoor sports complex with Weight and Carido rooms. And best of all Highway 12 ends about 1.5 miles north of our home where you can drive on the beach and see wild ponies!! (proper 4 wheel drive vehicles only)

What makes this house unique

Blue Haven is recently renovated (we are constantly upgrading and improving our home) very well equipped, having visited the OBX for many years before buying our home we have tried to think of everything you will want, plus we use the house ourselves in the off season so we have put more into it than the average rental home.. The 3 King Beds are very comfortable and all furniture very nice. The Theater is wonderful and a great place to catch up on movies plus there is the 47' HD TV in the great room upstairs and the gourmet equipped Kitchen. Then there is a great hot tub for 6 that you will want to spend time in daily! One of the best things of all is to sit in the evenings or early mornings on the outside patio and enjoy the sound views and nature with a cocktail or cup of coffee. Take advantage of the community rec center for a workout or take a bike ride or use our Kayaks to enjoy the sound. The list goes on and on so come see for yourself!

Blue Haven

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Blue Haven! The house was everything we needed and more. The house is beautiful and very spacious. The location is perfect, you can experience the quieter sound side after a busy day at the beach, just a short walk down the road. The side yard is great to grill and chill. Corolla has so much to offer, you need more than a week to experience it all!

A great week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at the Blue Haven beach house. Plenty of space for our family of seven. We could have easily brought another family along with us! The house is nicely decorated and we felt right at home immediately.

Just down the road (at the Corolla Light Shopping Center) we rented a tow-behind bike attachment for our 7 yr old and a kid trailer for our 4 yr old. It was really nice to just ditch the car and take the bikes (provided at beach house) wherever we wanted to go. Many great amenities in the house and the movie room was lots of fun at the end of the day. A huge selection of movies to choose from! We had hoped to use the kayaks (provided) in the sound near the end of our stay, but the weather didn't cooperate to make that possible. Hopefully next time!!

Amazing Getaway for the Whole Family!!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrive we were relaxed and rejuvenated at our summer 'Haven'. Our three families with active pre-teen boys all had room to relax and enjoy time together and apart. The amazing kitchen and great room was put to great use having all that we could want. The luxury accommodations allowed everyone to be a little pampered during our stay. From relaxing on the patio or in the hot tub to watching a movie in the 'theater room' or even a nice bike ride around the sound and ocean everyone enjoyed every moment. The trolley ride to the ocean was just out the front door and we could not ask for better. The resort amenities had something for everyone and so the kids were never bored. The owners were very attentive and responsive to any questions we had prior to and during our stay. This was an amazing vacation on all accounts and we hope to return again soon to Blue Haven. Thank you for sharing your home with us this summer!

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Blue Haven is a beautiful house to stay in. We had 10 in our party, 6 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of room for everyone and some to spare. The movie room was a great bonus. The kids loved it. We made most of our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. The kids used the bikes and loved the hammock outside. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay here again.

Perfect home for your vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit here, and I'm sure we will be back, the home is impeccable, the kitchen is great with good utensils, sharp knives and plenty of plates etc. The owner supplies the home with bicycles, kayaks and enough board games, movies and opportunities to relax that you could never leave! We enjoy the bay side as the morning and evening walks are relaxing and close by. From this location you can walk to the shopping village, the lighthouse or the beach. The owner is also available and responsive to requests, he clearly cares about his home and his guests. Thank You.
