About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 14

ONLY 120 feet from the Beach. Enjoy the breathtaking ocean views and the unique decor while vacationing. Unlike many of the newer 'mansion' beach houses, this house maintains the feeling of a true beach house while providing a comfortable vacation center for beach lovers.

This beach house is one of the original houses built in ocean sands - it is older, more rustic and a traditional ocean house. No home theaters, music studios or elevators.

Please pass us by if you want a high end hotel.

The first floor features 4 bedrooms (each with its own half bath and sharing a shower/bathtub with a neighboring room), and a full laundry room. There is also a Private Hot Tub and a Gas BBQ Grill, along with a hanging swing and deck chairs. The second floor offers the large great room, kitchen, and dining area, as well as gorgeous southeastern ocean views! There is also a fifth bedroom with full bathroom access. The kitchen has modern appliances and is of an open design. Sunbathers will enjoy the large wraparound decks on both floors. The third floor consists of a game room/sun room fully equipped and ready for some fun with a queen futon, TV, Wii, and a Foosball table.

Discounts given to military, law enforcement, fire personnel and teachers. You should be recognized for what you do for US.

Pets aren't just welcomed - they are ENCOURAGED!

Love this house! We all hated to leave.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing this house with our family. We all loved the layout, great views and easy access to the beach. The kids loved the upstairs game room the most. And the hot tub. The beds were comfortable, the house had an overall comfortable feel like home. The owner was also very quick to respond to any issues or questions. We hope to stay here again and definitely recommend. Thanks so much!

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, pets welcomed, plenty of room to spread out, right next to the beach in Corolla. Less crowded than in Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hills area. Great place for finding shells, and I found my first piece of sea glass this trip! Can’t wait to come back!

Clean, fun house in a good location

  • 5 of 5

It was a great house in a good location. They left a nice little surprise when we checked in. I would definitely recommend. Although the house wasn't bright blue any more so it was a little hard to find in the dark.

Annual Teacher Trip to OBX

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house was wonderful and had a perfect location. We were very close to the beach and enjoyed sitting on the deck of the beach walkway. We were happy that the grocery store was an easy walk away. The hot tub was very relaxing! The wine and coffee were very thoughtful. :) This house was definitely a good find. We hope to stay again next year
