Overview

About the property

House, 8 Bedrooms + 2 rms w/convertible bed(s), 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-24)

We named our 8 BR + den + theater room oceanside beach house 'Sea Forever,' because you really can -- see forever! Imagine a vacation with amenities like a private heated pool, hot tub, fireplace, elevator, 20 bicycles, gourmet 2-story kitchen, jacuzzi, landscaped garadens w/firepit, PS 3 & Wii, ocean views, and a beach only 650 feet away (a 3-min. walk)! Sea Forever has 5,000 sq. ft. of area, so bedrooms are large and accommodating. You can wake to a stunning sunrise over the ocean, enjoy coffee and bagels poolside (or IN our heated pool), or lounge around the great room planning your day, perhaps to see the Lost Colony Outdoor Drama (May-Aug), the Wright Brothers First Flight memorial and historic area, historic Corolla, climb the Corolla Light House, see the wild ponies, or tour the 1925-era Whalehead Club as U.S. Presidents did in the past. After family activities in the largest lawn in the neighborhood, you can relax with a book at the shade garden, or with loved ones around the fire pit making s'mores. Sea Forever is wonderfully situated within walking and biking distance of shops, restaurants, and other services around the corner (see map and reviews). There is some place to go or things to do year round! Guests love our key-less entry and custom check-in at the gated pool area. Your whole family or group can enjoy the best of all worlds: luxurious comfort and oceanside access to what are truly OBX's best beaches, but at family-affordable rates. Check out our YouTube video in the tab above, and on facebook for photos!

The entire family can eat at the 12-seat dining room table next to the 4+-seat breakfast bar, with full-service hand-painted dinnerware. The kitchen is well-stocked with amenities like a tea set, espresso/cappuccino maker, Belgian waffle iron, food processor, softserve ice cream maker, breadmaker, 2 crockpots, and pasta machine. We provide two Graco Pack & Play cribs and two highchairs, sheets, and blankets. You can prep your cookout food in the kitchenette, grill at poolside (your choice of two different gas and charcoal grills each), and transport the entire meal in the elevator for dining on the third floor. Or you may choose to eat at the two picnic tables, using our outdoor dishes and tablecloths for that 'summer party' feeling with outdoor speakers. You have no lugging of travel bags or groceries, as the elevator makes your movements easy. Everything here will make Sea Forever your favorite getaway spot!

About Jim

We are the Towarnicky family, and the proud owners of 'Sea Forever,' our oceanside beach house at Corolla in the Outer Banks, NC. Jim is an attorney who focuses his practice in tax, business, and real estate. We do not use an impersonal rental management company. We can be flexible to meet your needs. To protect against scammers, always contact Jim to verify your week is available and do not send money to anyone by wire transfer. Our family welcomes your family and friends to share our home, where you can Sea Forever!

Jim purchased this house in 2010

Why Jim chose Corolla

Our family vacationed several times over the years at the Outer Banks, and loved the clean, white sandy beaches. Other beach areas in other states that we tried were too crowded and dirty, and the houses too small. When we decided to finally purchase a vacation home, we knew we would come back to this fabulous resort area. It has everything you could want in a vacation spot: historic sightseeing with Wright Brothers First Flight, boutique shops, the Lost Colony outdoor drama, Currituck Lighhouse, Historic Corolla, and the nature preserve section with wild horses. There are all sorts of aquatic sports, and of course, the ocean and beach. Corolla is family-oriented and quiet, if that is what you wish, but connected to a string of towns along the coast (Duck, Southern Shores, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, Manteo) with varying activities and nightlife for all ages. It really provides the best of all worlds!

What makes this house unique

We chose this house because it has a combination of conveniences and luxuries that make your vacation the best! The chef in your family will love the spacious, well-stocked octagonal 2-story kitchen with dramatic black granite counters, solid maple cabinetry, dual ovens, dual dishwashers, 2010 refrigerator freezer, and great views. Enjoy family dinners on our 12-seat dining table and 4-seat breakfast bar. Our elevator and handicapped-accessible bedrooms and bathroom ensure that all family members can share your vacation. There is never a dull moment when you can splash in the pool or hot tub with friends, play pool or throw darts in our sensational recreation room, try out our Wii and PlayStation 3 video games in the theater room, or watch movies with our extensive DVD and video collection (in addition to cable TV). Escape to the bright cheerful den to read a book, or watch TV and movies. The house is spacious enough that your family and friends can share the experience, but be separated and not on top of each other all the time. But the best amenity is simply the location, where you can stroll down the street only 600 feet to the beach entrance, or sip a favorite drink on the decks, watching the waves in a panoramic view so soothing that you'll wish you didn't have to leave. We STILL feel that way ourselves every time we come down.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jim--Just a follow-up on our June 14-21 stay at your lovely beach house. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything in the house was exactly as presented. The house was wonderfully equipped--dishes, small appliances, large appliances, linens etc. Even more impressive was the variety of beach accessories: towels, umbrellas, pool toys, recreational activities, bikes. You thought about almost everything we would need or want. Furnishing were great, and although we didn't use the books, dvds etc it was nice to have them available in case of bad weather. In fact, I don't think we used more than a couple of the TVs--but there were plenty. Luckily we had great weather, other than a nasty, windy storm--but that was in the evening on Thurs.

(The storm blew around the furniture on the decks, knocked over the poolside umbrellas, etc.) My only negative comment was that the ice makers couldn't keep up with our use, so we were buying bagged ice. But that was minor. Thanks you for a wonderful family vacation. Mary Ann and family

Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rarely write reviews but I would like people to understand what a spectacular "home away from home" the Sea Forever is. We have stayed in the sister cottage, Sea Forevermore, and were equally as happy. You will want for nothing while you are here. The kitchen is equipped with every utensil, pan, plate, small appliance that you could ever want. There were also spices so you don't have to run out and buy them. We used the hot tub which was clean and right outside the ground floor door. Tons of beach towels to dry off with! There is a Florida-type room where I went to read each day. We didn't have our Grandchildren with us but there would have been lots and lots of accommodations for them (and toys, kite, bikes, etc.). We had fun playing pool in the game room and watching the wide screen TV. VERY CLEAN! Something as small as hand soap at every sink is a true treat! This cottage has spoiled us! We won't go anywhere else! OH YEAH...Don't forget the elevator!!!!

Sea Forever exceeds our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

First, let me say this is our second time staying at Sea Forever. Now with that being said, let me tell you how amazing this place is:

This place feels like home, with all the comforts of home as well. I love to cook and the kitchen has everything you need; crockpot, wok, tons of pots and pans (and so much more) Also, they have a large variety of spices. All the bedrooms are a nice size, with super comfy beds. The top floor is where the main living space, kitchen and one of the master bedrooms is located. There is a large tv above a fireplace and a large cabinet with tons of movies and games. The second floor has three master bedrooms and one room with two twin beds. This floor also has a living room with a nice size tv and a beverage cooler. There is a large basket with blankets and also a cabinet with more games in it. This floor also has a washer/dryer unit. The first floor has three more rooms, pool table, a very large flatscreen tv, game room with another large flatscreen tv ( stocked with a PlayStation and a few games, guitar hero and more) you also access the pool and hot tub. Located next to the door is a never ending supply of beach towels. In our group of people (8) four of the eight ranged from 14-23.... they hung out downstairs most of the time ( except for when it was time to eat, lol) there is also what I call, a mini kitchen downstairs (1st floor) it served as our snack station. Outside in the carport is a ton of bikes, for all ages, plenty of beach toys and kites. They also have a grill, horseshoes and a basketball goal. One of the best features of this place is the elevator (3floors) Our 84 year old grandmother comes with us and this makes the stay more enjoyable for her and my mother-n-law. The beach and grocery store is within walking distance. We vacation here after Christmas and we find the weather still comfortable enough to enjoy walking on the beach and collecting shells.

My teenagers and twenty something sisters love this place, as well as us older folks. We hope to continue our tradition of coming to Sea Forever for many more years to come.

The Towarnicky's are wonderful and so willing to work with you. They have added so many extra touches to this place, that I'm positive I'm leaving something out.

All you need is your family/friends and clothes!!!

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent one of the most fantastic Christmas Vacation at Sea Forever this year!  A little bit of background...  Every since our mother passed away in 2006 my sister, 3 brothers, father, and respective families have spent every even year Christmas together in a different location.  We have rented houses from Connecticut to Florida, and Sea Forever has raised the bar for accommodations, amenities, and customer service. 

The accommodations are spectacular!  At least half of the bed rooms have there own bathrooms, and those that don't have one only feet away.  We made full use of the seperate game room, movie room, and living room.  The guys had sports on in the game room, the kids had the video games playing in the movie room, while Christmas specials played in the living room.  

The kitchen is easily up to the challenge of preparing meals for 14+ people.  Enough counter space for crock pots, waffle maker, pasta machine, coffee makers, Kitchen-aid mixer, ect...  All of which are provided!  The dual oven was a Godsend for Christmas cookies, Christmas eve and Christmas dinners!  And the dining room table sat us all.

Even though the pool was closed, for the winter, we took full advantage of the hot tub!  Sooo relaxing after a long day of  shopping, baking, and/or cooking dinner.  One of our favorite amenities was the elevator!  Not only easier for check-in and check-out, but it was great for those who are elder or afflicted with arthritis pain. 

I must also speak to the professionalism and personal touch of the owners.  The Towarnickys are by far the best owners to work with.  Questions were answered immediately, and problems were resolved quickly with my family's experience the priority.  They even provided us with Christmas decorations and a decorated Christmas tree in the living room!  

I highly recommend Sea Forever for your next family get together!

Owner's Response: Kudos right back to this group as well. VERY respectful and appreciative of our home. John points out that we have no problem trying to provide extras or putting in effort to make your stay the best. Happiest renters are the most respectful of our home. So if there is a special need or concern, feel free to ask! Some of our best addition ideas have been at the suggestion of our guests (like crockpots, cornhole games, additional coffee makers, roasters, spices, smart TVs . . . the list goes on). We hope to take the worry out of renting and into enjoying your time with friends and family. We hope you will Sea Forever with us!

Unrivaled in ease and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled to the Outer Banks at least once or twice a year with family for the past 24 years, we have never found a place with such thoughtful, extremely accommodating owners. A trip to the beach is a breeze now that we've found and fell in love with Sea Forever!

True confessions...we've stayed at Sea Forever for two years in a row now (May 2015 and 2016), but I've failed to post a review out of pure selfishness. Last year when we wanted to reserve a week, I found that I was too late, and all of our possible weeks were taken. I seriously hunted and hunted thinking I'd surely find something comparable, but nothing came close. I was sulking, knowing we'd have to settle for an unknown or lesser quality haven when I checked "just once more", and to my elation, the week had opened up!! We snatched it up and learned our lesson to never wait that long again, regardless of how hard it is to nail down schedules for all the travelers.

So here I am, finally ready to share this secret with the world, since I know I'll get the week I'm looking for in 2017!

So why do we hoard it for ourselves?? Never before have I been to a beach house that is better stocked than my own home. Not only is there MORE of everything, it's quite often better quality (our beach chairs have seen much better days). The first year we stayed, we were greeted with brand new bikes, brand new beach chairs, a mini-pharmacy of allergy, headache and sunburn meds along with first aid kits, a kitchen stocked full of spices, oils, gadgets, cookware etc. (I can't even begin to list it all)! They went so far as to consider little ones around the pool with tyke-sized lounge chairs and picnic table, and plenty of pool toys. For the adults, several cushioned lounge chairs, and more beach towels than I could even count! They truly thought of everything, and went over and above to ensure that all was top quality and in top working condition.

The second year, the AC fritzed on us during the week, which the owner was immediately on top of, and went out of his way to make sure it was corrected and comfortable as soon as humanly possible (it required an entirely new compressor...not just a tweak).

The icing on this cake is a grassy yard to play soccer, croquet, etc., a shade garden and fire pit to relax around when we're done with sand and sun!

My supreme gratitude to the owners, and now I'll boldly encourage everyone to stop looking any further for just the right place...this is it!!

Wonderful Amenities and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a long anniversary weekend during off season. It was wonderful. The home is beautiful and a short walk to the beach. We stay in beach homes almost every summer and I have never stayed in a rental already stocked with so many items for the beach and comfortable living. If I ever stayed here again during the summer months, I wouldn't bring anything for the beach. This home is stocked with everything from beach towels, to boogie boards, to bikes, to beach chairs and wagons. There are enough bikes and beach items for a VERY large group. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining, baking, and cooking. There are so many useful items in the kitchen - you don't need to bring anything. There are plenty of games and movies - and everything in the home is easy to find because the drawers are labeled. We stayed in the master bedroom and the bed was amazing. The master bath has a very nice shower and jacuzzi tub. There is also a hot tub and pool outside - very nice.

I must also add that the owner was very easy to work with and is extremely informative about the home. There are restaurants, shops, and grocery stores right around the corner. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: We appreciate all that these great renters have written, and think they pretty much cover what we're so proud about for Sea Forever. We're leasing up the summer quite quickly, so if you wish to try us, please check the calendar for dates, and we hope you will Sea Forever!

Great getaway for 50th Birthday!

  • 5 of 5

This home is large and has everything! It was the off season so just enough open in the area to not feel overwhelmed. The heated pool and hot tub were great. Temps at night where cold but the weather during the day was awesome! Spent some time at the beach in the surf a few of the days and enjoyed the outdoor fire pit in the night. Landscaping is beautiful. Everything you can think of is here and you don't need to bring anything but clothes, food and your beverage of choice. I have stayed at many place throughout the area over the years but this one tops them all with all the extras the owners have put in place. Kites, bikes, games, movies, music, seasonings in the kitchen, paper products, towels. linens and even items for the infant in our group! Thank you Jim for your patients and help to make this possible. We know where we will go when we plan our next trip.

Owner's Response: What a great group! They were very appreciative of all the effort we put in to have their stay be the best it could be. Kae's review points out a great part about our home: there's little to plan or administer above enjoying with your family. Bikes, beach gear, linens, spices . . . little to pack, but lots to enjoy! So, especially during the offseason, why not drop any worries about prep, and jump in the car for a few days or a long weekend at the beach? Let us have everything ready do the cleanup for you?
