About the property

What do you look for in an ideal vacation spot?

A lovely home, tastefully decorated with upscale furnishings?

A well-equipped home, stocked with your needs in mind?

A family-friendly home, supplied for fun indoors & out?

A centrally-located home, near the beach, shops, restaurants, historic & natural attractions?

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“With a young family, kids ages 7, 6, 3 & 1, your home was perfect! Plenty of room, each to have his or her own space. Very comfortable, relaxing, especially loved the wrap around decks & wide open living space.” Sarah K, Wichita KS; “Your home is beautiful and we had a wonderful, relaxing vacation.” ~ Janet V, Newark DE

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house accommodated our family well, we had 6 adults and 2 children. The house was centrally located to everything you would need or want to do. Shopping, grocery store and restaurants were all within a 5 minute walk. A very relaxing week enjoying time with our family.

First visit to outer banks and we were not disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We brought our two kids and their families for a total of 10 ( 6 adults and 4 kids ages 8,3,2,1). The house was perfect. Plenty of room to spread out. Bedrooms were roomy and all had its own bathroom. Very comfortable and accommodating for all.Loved the two level wrap around deck but wear shoes as we pulled a few splinters. Location was very convenient to shopping, restaurants, the beach and the pool. Kudos to the local fire department located at the beach. Fire personnel were so nice to our two little grandsons who insisted on stopping by for a look at the trucks. The pool was first class. We all enjoyed the many sites such as wildlife museum, lighthouse and especially the horse tour. I must compliment the owners Chris and Beth who were so very responsive and provided lots of great information in advance of our visit. If visiting this area again we would most definitely stay here again

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was in a perfect location for us. Having the community pool was also very nice. The house had everything we need and is well maintained. We did look for dish rags and dish towels and could not locate them, so we ended up using a regular hand towel. Sorry about that!!

Thank You Beth for sharing your lovely home with us!

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!
