Our family had a wonderful week at Sands of Time. Everyone enjoyed their stay from grandparents to our three year old nephew. There was so much for the kids to do and plenty of space for everyone to have a quiet spot if they wanted one. The owners have thought of everything.

Reviewer Comments:

My family of 10 adults and three children and a wonderful vacation in Corolla made possible by a stay in a beautiful home. The house was spacious, clean, and had everything you could possibly need from a perfectly supplied kitchen, board games, pools toys, etc. The beds were very comfortable as was the family room sectional! The pool area had plenty of lounge chairs and the bonus of a "tiki bar" which allowed for lounging by the pool in the shade. Access to the beach was very easy and the owners were clever to place a hose right next to the entrance to the pool so that you could rinse off before returning home. My family and I would return here in a heartbeat! The management company was very helpful and responsive. We never had any issues with the house, appliances, 4x4 beach road, etc.

Reviewer Comments:

This is so much more than a house on a beach. It is a place for family, laughter, memories. There was no detail overlooked. Amazing. The stain glass with the morning light shining through was beautiful. Drinking my morning tea while sitting on the bench overlooking the water brought me the dolphins as if they had been ordered just for my personal viewing pleasure. This family was blessed to spend the week with our Marine, family and close friends. We hope to go back every year. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough. Your generosity of sharing your home is appreciated more than words can say.
