The Currituck Club is a wonderful community with pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, gym, bike paths and in the summer a trolley service will take you right to the beach and a helpful valet service will take all of your belongings down to the beach. These services help make it truly feel like a vacation! We are also members of the Pine Island Beach Club and Pool, which allows you to enjoy and oceanfront pool and uncrowded beach. It is a wonderful alternative to the main beach access.
We have three children, so the house is equipped for kiddos. We know how difficult it is to drag everything you need on vacation so we have tried to include as much of the 'gear' as possible in the home for your use. This includes: 2 pack n plays, high chair, toys, books, magic bumpers for the beds, video library filled with Disney movies, and pool and sand toys and well as foosball and video games for the older crowd.

Kristen D. purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Kristen D. chose Corolla
This neighborhood has it all - golf, beautiful homes, pools and tennis courts and the trolley and valet service just can't be beat!
What makes this Cottage unique
In addition to 4 bedrooms, each with an adjoining bathroom, we have a den upstairs as well as a finished garage rec room. This gives everyone in the family a place to "hang out" and have some space.

So many positive things to say! Perfect location for our niece's wedding at the Currituck Club. Our hosts went out of their way to let us know how close we were to all the wedding festivities, recommendations for places for lunch and things to do, if we had any spare time. The house was in pristine condition when we arrived and easily accommodated our family of 5 -and a pizza party for 15 people ages 6 mos to 98 years the night before we all went home! The first floor queen master is perfect for the older family member when stairs might be an issue;the upstairs bedrooms were bright, airy. The kitchen was amply stocked with everything we needed, including updated appliances, a Breville toaster oven, and Keurig coffee maker. The hosts provide many other amenities for families-new beach chairs, high chair, pack& play, pool and beach toys. Finally, I just want to comment on the hosts attention to our needs. The hot tub was hot, the pool clean and ready when we arrived. We had a minor glitch with the second floor A/C on Saturday before we left for the 5:30Pm wedding. I texted Kristen on our way to the ceremony (!) who sent someone out immediately to address the issue. The second floor was cool and comfy when we returned that night. I highly recommend SeaGlass Cottage for anyone who is looking for a family friendly home.
Perfect for Kids, and for Dads to hideout and watch Football!
Our family had an amazing time at the Sea Glass Cottage. This place was perfect for two families with kids and all the amenities to keep your little ones entertained. The recreation room was perfect for us Dads to watch football and keep the kids corralled. Each family had their own private space with bathrooms. The kitchen was amazing with all the tools and cookware needed to make a gourmet meal. Our kids wanted for nothing with all the toys, movies and games to keep them entertained throughout our stay. After the kids were in bed it was nice being able to enjoy a cold fall night in the hot tub outside. Thank you for our amazing stay at your beautiful home!
The downstairs carpets had huge dark stains. They looked terrible . When I reached out to the owner I was told "we don't clean them till the end of the season." We were paying guests, so I was offended. In addition, my daughter and brother-in-law went home with several flea bites. While decorated beautifully, this property was unsanitary and not worth the rent. I was embarrassed I had requested money from our family to help cover the stay. I left a few things behind. I was angry enough to not bother reaching out. Truly surprised by the prior ratings on VRBO. A 360 from our experience.
Phyllis - I came to the beach for a long weekend since my children were off school. I was shocked at what I found. You are right - the carpet looks terrible. I cannot believe we had a renter that would do that to our home. I am so sorry that it was not caught and cleaned before your arrival. As far as my reply email to you about the issue - like I mentioned I was also traveling and had limited access to email and was obviously too hasty with my reply. I should have asked you to send photos. I would have never expected the condition of the carpet and was very disappointed that it happened. My point about the end of season was perhaps misunderstood. I simply meant that in order to have the carpets cleaned, it is best to have time between renters so that they could dry. We have a very short window between guests and many of them request early check ins, which we try to accommodate, just as we did with you. Having both cleaning and carpets done during that time is nearly impossible. As far as the fleas, I see no evidence of any, but will have it confirmed by my pest company. I'm sorry you left things behind and were too angry to ask for them to be sent. Surely you know that the type of owner that would leave you a bottle of champagne and a card because you were here to celebrate your son's wedding is the type of owner that would mail your belongings to you if they were made aware they were left.I am really sorry about the carpet. We really do our best to make Sea Glass Cottage a lovely home away from home and I'm sorry we fell short on that for your stay. ~Kristen
What we experienced
1. Bottom line the unit is very tired.
2. TV's in the bedrooms were so old that the Salvation Army would not take them.
3. Lighting was very old bulbs and shades. So old that they produced very marginal reflection making reading a book a challenge . New bulbs are inexpensive and produce real light.
4. We would not come back to this unit again nor recommend it to any one asking.
5. The thermostat is a joke to operate.
6. The rental price was way beyond expectations when compared with others that we visited during our stay.
Hi Bob - Thank you for the review, although I will admit it stung a bit. You are probably right about the bedroom TVs - they do need an upgrade perhaps. We focused our entertainment budget on the fabulous TVs in the family room and rec room. I will look into replacing the televisions in all the bedrooms except for the bunk room - my children love watching the old Disney movies on the VCR in there! I wish I had knows about the light bulbs during your stay. We would have been happy to swap them out for brighter bulbs if you had let us know. As far as the thermostat, the Nest is super popular on the market right now and we love it and I am sorry you did not. We try to be a great value all year, but especially during the off season, and I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We really strive for that. We are in the process of making some updates to the cottage so we will be even better next year. We love coming here and want everyone else to as well. ~Kristen
We loved it! A beautiful home with all the amenities we needed - perfect for our family of five. Loved the location, couldn't ask for a nicer community atmosphere. Having a trolley service to the beach right outside the front door was a huge plus, but we especially liked the private beach club - peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. So great to have the option of the beautiful pool and the beach right there at your disposal. We loved Corolla and your home, and are looking forward to returning for another visit. Thank you!
Our first family visit to the OBX and it has been great.
The property had everything we needed and more. The location was good for our family because we like to do things but also to have our privacy.
The owner is very thoughtful and acomodating to the needs of her guests.
