You've found it! Let yourself be Swept Away by this terrific home, loaded w/ comforts & amenities. Relax on 2 floors of wrap-around decking, including 2nd level porch swing and top level hot tub. Lounge on Tommy Bahama furniture & beds made w/ Egyptian cotton sheets. Enjoy a quiet book or lively game in the ship's watch loft. Be surrounded by sunny skies and clear ocean views - even from inside, thanks to plentiful windows & an open floor plan.
Just a short walk to the beach - we've supplied a beach cart, chairs, boogie boards & sand toys. At Monteray Shores Clubhouse enjoy the pool, playground, tennis courts, bike & kayak rental, sound fishing/crabbing off the pier, fitness center & kids' activities. We're just steps away from some of the Outer Banks' finest shops & restaurants. You'll love it here!
Added Bonus: We offer Early Arrival at no additional cost! This is unusual for the northern beaches, where almost every other home has a 4pm check-in. There is one main road in and out of the area -- as it gets closer to that 4pm arrival, all that traffic can really back up. Our earlier check-in allows you to beat most of the traffic crossing onto the island and up the coast.
We hope you will enjoy this extra benefit : )
Updates: We've owned this home since 2008 and every year we make repairs, upgrades and additions to what we offer. A few major changes recently include: in 2014 we had the entire exterior of the house painted, added flat-screen tv's in the living area and master bedrooms, and upgraded the entry with "wood" tile flooring. In 2015, we replaced all carpeting throughout the house, added a new washer & dryer and replaced the upper floor HVAC unit.

Why Beth chose Corolla
We love Corolla and have vacationed in this area since 1996. Corolla beaches offer a quiet beauty that we have not seen in many other places. The beach is small, but so is the community, so it never seems too crowded & you’re always near the water. The Monteray Shores community has so much to offer and our guests receive complimentary access to the Clubhouse Fitness Center, large pool plus kiddie pool, sound-front Sunset Pier, tennis courts, terrific playgrounds and more. We really feel that our house is perfectly located. Only a short, 8-10 min walk to the beach and since we are on a higher elevation than homes closer to the water, we have wonderful ocean views. Being at the southern end of Monteray Shores, we are super close to many shops & amazing restaurants. Teens also appreciate being able to walk on their own to Dairy Queen or mini-golf.
What makes this House unique
Our home has a rock & roll history! It was formerly owned by Dave Grohl - yes, THAT Dave Grohl - and even though we've never met him : ( we like to wonder who may have visited here over the years!

It was a beautiful, clean home, and the owners were helpful and kind! It is also within walking distance of the beach and plenty of activities (and a grocery store!) or a short drive to many more but also quite peaceful in May!
Swept Away was a great place to stay! Nice and clean and well outfitted for our family and Mother in law. Close to the beach and shopping and dining, but away from the hustle and bustle of the busier parts of OBX.
If we go to OBX again, this will definitely be our first home to look at.
What a GREAT house. Just what we wanted.
This house was perfect for our vacation. We regret not bringing more family with; there’s a lot of bedrooms. Hot tub was awesome, especially with cool March weather we had. Easy walking to the beach or sound. The provided beach accessories were a nice touch even though they were slighy rusty, and a little heavy to carry all the way to to the beach. Kids loved the sand toys.
We were there in the off season. Can’t imagine the craziness of the summer time. The FoodLion nearby was great to have. Corrilla is quite aways up island from the bridge, but having FoodLion and few resturants within walking distance was awesome. Butchers Block had a great selection of growler beer, seafood, and meats. The kitchen had all the utensils and pots/pans that we needed (although the cook top took forever to boil water)
The club house was nice and is looks great during the summer time with the pool and tennis courts open.
The owners were very easy to communicate with. They gave us great suggestions on fishing charters as well as what was in and out of season.
We had a few things that kept this from being a perfect rental. Nothing major, just a little different than the other beach rentals we’ve had in the past:
The lack of towels was suprising. There were four of us and only one towel, wash cloth, and hand towel per person. We are not reckless with our towel use but we just needed more. Collecting four towels almost nightly to wash and dry became a hassle after a few days espically with the hot tub. Personally I think each bathroom should have been outfitted in addition to our individual towel sets. We had extra towels packed and i unpacked them because the listing said towel included.
The need for us to buy simple amenities like kitchen paper towel, napkins,laundry detergent and eventually toilet paper was a minor nuisance but the nearby grocery store had what we needed.
The hotub cleaning company was by three times during the week we there. Not by our request though, and it honestly was not needed (the tub water was perfect). Each time we were out of the house but saw the tag on the tub when we returned. The only was to access the hot tub is by going through the house. Just a little unexpected that there would be someone other than the home owner going through the house while we were not home with all our stuff out. There were no problems, it was just unexcpexted.
Overall we loved the house and would rent it again
This house is Epic!!!
I’d like to first off say the owner of this house is awesome! Him and his wife have put some hard work into this house to make sure their guest are comfortable and happy here. There is tasteful decor, we really love the two master suites, comfortable beds (which can be extremely hard to find at homeaway rentals) stocked kitchen, kid ready, spacious for our traveling group, awesome hot tub, close to everything you need in Corolla! Overall, we are very happy here and appreciate greatly the opportunity to stay here.
On a side note: I’d just like to say.. my family followed the Ashely P. girl with the one star review left on March 5th 2018. Well... when we were on the way down we were informed house keeping was going to need some extra time to get things ready for us.. because this Ashley girls group, not only stole bedding, sheets, pillows from the couch, burnt holes in the comforter and then stained another comforter but left cigarette butts on the deck, and we found marijuana on the rim of the hot tub along with spots where you can tell the cigarettes were “put out” on the hot tub and something had to have been spilt in the water because it was very off colored and did not look appealing. I contacted the owner and he sent the spa people out the very next morning and it was drained, cleaned and refilled.
These folks were a disgrace to this house and that’s so unfortunate, especially when the owners are so nice and responsive, and offering their home to people to enjoy.
I hope whoever is reading these reviews see that they have 4-5 stars across the board... and that this one group of people are just making up lies. There is no mold here, and maybe if this Ashely girl would have realized there is a thermostat on each floor, she could have cut off the AC and turned on the heat. Duh. 🙄� Everything in this house works as it should and if there is any issues at all like I said the owners are on top of it.
We love this house and again appreciate the opportunity to stay here!!
