Awesome Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time coming to "A Shore Thing". We love everything about this house. It is very clean and relaxing. Close to the beach and town. Eric is so helpful and just a phone call away, if needed. Love getting into the pool after a hot day at the beach, or relaxing in the hot tub late at night. Of course we love the pool table for our week long tournament, which I never win. I highly recommend this house for your vacation at OBX.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing 2 weeks with the kids and grandkids! Home was clean and spacious. With all the different levels and balconies it never felt crowded at all! Eric was helpful with all the surrounding shops, restaurants, golf courses etc.The first night there we heard about the 4 -wheel drive beach about 10 minutes away and we were hooked! Packed our coolers and chairs and literally drive right on the beach! Saw the wild horses every time we went! Amazing to say the least! They're beautiful! When we took a break from the beach the pool was the favorite place to be. Clean and cool and didn't have to leave the house. Just hang out all day being lazy and grilling steaks. That's my idea of a great vacation! Loved touring Whaleshead and seeing the beautiful view from the top of the lighthouse. Golf was great, fishing was even better! Kids activities, dining and shops galore! All within minutes away! Our stay was fabulous! Thx for helping us to make wonderful memories with our families!

Sincerely, The Dutcher's in Ohio

"A Shore Thing" was GREAT. The house was very clean and had lots of room. We enjoyed the pool , hot tub and the pool table was lots of fun. A nice walk to the beach and close to the town of Corolla. Eric was lots of help with information about the town and the house. We recommend this house, and we will stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

"A Shore Thing" was for sure!

  • 5 of 5

The listing and pictures were right on the mark. The house is spacious and very clean. The house was fully equiped as noted on the site. It has a great pool, game room and outdoor hot tub. The only problem was that there wasn't a bathroom on the first floor. The beach(beautiful and clean) was only a couple of blocks away, so we would drop people off with all of their stuff if they were staying at the beach for the day because there isn't parking. The owner was great, answering any and all questions, as well as giving helpful tips(such as the timing/conjestion getting on and off the island, food shopping, etc.).

We went to the Sunset Grille in Duck...great seafood with in/outside dining(very picturesque). We had a great breakfast at the Light House Rest. in Tim Buck II(also great shopping). We went to the Wright Brothers Museum...very interesting and Fort Reileigh, Elizabethian Gardens and the Lost Colony...very enjoyable. The Currituck Lighthouse and Whalehead were another good outing, too.

We all had a wonderful time at the Outer Banks in Carolla! I absolutely recommend this rental property to anyone with out physical disabilities( there are three floors with steps). I had the best vacation ever and hope to return for A Shore Thing!!!

Car: recommended

Section K, Ocean Sands is located within walking distance to many unique shopping stores, multi-cinema, minature golf, go-carts, restaurants and grocery stores. Very short drive to the Corolla Lighthouse, historic area of Corolla and down the road to where the road ends and four-wheel driving on the beach begins! Jetski, windsulfer, parasailing rentals and fishing chartering are just down the road also.
