Reviewer Comments:

I thought that staying at this quaint getaway was reminiscent of authentic stays at the Outer Banks. There is only one story - yes you cannot fully see the whitecaps on the ocean. But you can see the ocean and certainly hear it. The surrounding vegetation actually made this house less stark and more protected from the elements. All the amenities were in good working order. We did have a living room recliner that didn't fully function but other than that, we found no fault with the house. Yes, there are small rooms and double beds, but having two bathrooms was great! And we had enough storage and closet space for 4 of us, and then some. We had good internet and cable reception. The A/C kept us cool. At night, we turned it down and opened up the windows to hear the crashing surf. We were pretty darn close to the beach. Be forewarned - There are lots of steps up and then down to the beach. But the height above the sea is needed to protect the homes. So like Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills in that respect. And when a storm blew up and others in the area got flooded we stayed cozy in the house with no water damage. Of course the Southwestern style porch added to this house's charm but prevented us from using the porch while it rained. At night after the storm passed we went back to sitting out on the porch and enjoying the stars. There is something to be said for simplicity and privacy. There are big homes on either side of us but again the vegetation added a measure of seclusion which I liked. The neighbors were nice. And I am finding that the Corolla / Duck areas exhibit charm. Try this one out - it is not so costly and it makes for a great stay at the beach.

Reviewer Comments:

We've been renting Somerset for several years now and absolutely love what it has to offer - beachfront, old school, Outer Banks. The house has all of the basics that you need in a great location. Ocean Sands A beach is never crowded, yet close to shopping an in between Duck and Corolla Light. The house could use some updating. The kitchen isn't dirty, but the insides of the drawers and cabinets need some TLC to appear more tidy. The mattresses and pillows are not the best. The water pressure in the outside shower/faucet is not sufficient. And it's time for the decor (the fans and posters) to be updated. There are some updates every year and the new dishwasher and AC unit this year were really great. We greatly enjoy this little beach house in the dunes. The photo of "the view" needs to be updated. It is not accurate at all. The dunes are now lush with growth and you can see a sliver of ocean from the deck, but not much.

Reviewer Comments:

We travel to Corolla every year, (this being our 16th year) and this year our oldest daughter decided to get married while we were there. I had already booked this beach house, so we really appreciated the ease of being oceanfront. When we arrived at the home, we were very disappointed with the lay out of the home. When Compared to the pictures on the website , it was a bit deceiving. One of only Two bathrooms, is attached to one of the bedrooms, making it a master bedroom(which is not stated in the description of the home) We had 6 Adults , so this made for an inconvenience. There were many Ant Traps out, even on the Kitchen Counter, which we found to be disturbing. I know there are many animal creatures that come with living by the sea, but the Ants were a big problem. You had to make sure your food was kept tightly closed , or the Ants helped themselves to your food. Unfortunately, we would not rent this home again, but the Staff at Beach Realty was really great to work with , very friendly staff so we would rent another home from them again. I do have to say that despite the issues, our daughter's wedding was beautiful and the memories will last a lifetime.

Absolutely great! Could not have asked for better. I only wish the view of the ocean from the house were a little better but I would stay here again in a heartbeat and plan to do so.

Reviewer Comments:

The vacation rental was exactly what I'd hoped for: private, clean, open, and right on the beach. We are definitely hoping to return in the future. My only minor complaint is that the beds are all smaller than queen size, so if you like to share a bed with your spouse, you may be disappointed.

This is a great throw back in time cottage. The accommodations are great and you are literally just a short walk off the back deck to the ocean.
