Overview

Corolla House Rental Photos and Description

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

This Beautiful Home is 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.

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!

Great location and Great home

  • 5 of 5

Fully equipped and spacious home just a few short steps (35 to be exact) from the dune way to get to the beach. Clean and comfortable rooms with wonderful views. Completely enjoyed our stay (our dog approves too). Close to shopping (if you're so moved to cook while you're at the beach) without ever being bothered by any traffic. Greg is great and made sure our stay was top notch. Will definitely be booking again.

Fantastic location and great property

  • 5 of 5

Great layout and perfect location. 30 steps to the dune-way to get to the beach. Lulled to sleep each night by the rolling waves. Wildlife abounds in the field outside with a view of the waves from the third level deck. Clean and well kept. Will definitely be booking for next year.

Wonderful Vacation Home, in spite of weather!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the Dog House was WONDERFUL, even though the sun only came out for one day in full glory. The house was clean, comfy and ever-so-close to the beach. Having our 110 lb dog with us made this the place a perfect choice and we wish to return next year! The owner, Greg, was prompt and super pleasant in answering any and all of my questions. We definitely felt "at home" in the Dog House :)

Great location, good home, awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

We spent my wife's first weekend away from our little one and while we wished he was there, we had an awesome time! The dunes are pretty high in this area of Corolla so you barely get a view of the beach from the third floor, and only get a little view from the fourth floor game room, but you can still easily hear the waves crashing all day and night, and the beach is about 50 yard walk over a boardwalk path. Besides the beach, the location is great because there is a Harris Teeter grocery store less than a quarter mile away, and multiple great restaurants just down the road in Duck and in North Corolla. In addition, the city just extended the bike path that runs along Route 12 so you can ride bikes or walk just about the entire length of the Duck and Corolla.

The home has just about anything you need but is also no frills. Being a beach home the environment is tough and just enough maintenance is being done to keep it in shape. If you're looking for a perfect vacation home from the magazines, this one isn't for you. There are some areas that need drywall work, paint, or deck repairs but you're not going to find that perfect home in this price range.

Gregg Williams, the owner, is very responsive and accommodating of any information requests or needs. We will definitely consider this property for future vacations in Corolla, and next time even try to fill it with more people.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We spent our 5th anniversary there and were able to do some spiritual bonding over the week from watching the moon rise in the Hot tub to the sunsetting over the sound from the fourth floor thank you Greg

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of friends stay for the week and the house was perfect for all of us! We had two dogs come with us and they loved having so much space to play! Definitely would come back! Greg is great!
