Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing trip and thoroughly enjoyed this house. It is perfect for families. We vacationed with our one-year old and the house is very accommodating for two families. The beach and pool are a short walk and easy to access. There are shops, restaurants, and grocery stores nearby as well. The 4x4 beaches are a short drive and we were able to see the wild horses twice in our own vehicle. The house is clean and everything looks new. It is very cheerful and the decor is updated and coastal. The owner is very responsive and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful week Stephanie!!

Beautiful beach house - excellent choice for our OBX vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week in the Outer Banks, and we very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely beach house. The location was perfect - while not right on the beach, it was pretty darn close and made for an easy walk even with young children (ages 2, 3, and 4). It's just a quick drive to the grocery store, shops, Historic Corolla, the 4x4 beaches at Carova, and even Duck; everything is just a few minutes away. The house itself is lovely - very clean, everything looks new, and the place is very tastefully decorated. So many wonderful amenities are included: beach chairs, plenty of beach toys, boogie boards, an inflatable kiddie pool, corn hole, a few board games, washer and dryer, passes for the community pool and tennis courts (also an easy walk for young kids), and the huge, beautiful kitchen is well equipped. (We only have one super minor complaint: the kitchen faucet has a touchy sensor and was a bit annoying when washing hands and dishes).

Our party consisted of two families totalling 9 people (four adults, two teenagers, and three small children), and the house comfortably fit everyone with excellent sleeping arrangements and room to spread out. Personally, my favorite spot in the house was on the deck swings - so comfy; I think we may need to buy one for our own home!

If you are in the market for a beautiful beach house in a great location and you don't mind not having a private pool, then this is the house for you. Highly recommended. Thank you for everything, Stephanie!

Everything we ever wanted.....

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we could have asked for except we could see the ocean from the top floor and especially from the lovely crows nest and beach access was exactly like the photo. HUGE kitchen, great appliances...once we figured out how to use the faucets...tap the top...roomy bedrooms, clean clean clean bathrooms, furniture, decks, grill and even the garage area. A very well maintained investment! If we were to change anything it might be to finish the underside of the deck above the lower deck swings as the rain comes down through and watching thunderstorms and showers is a particular pleasant occupation. OR install swing hooks further in under the upper decking so the swings can be moved back. The street was quiet, even for the middle of the season and most of the houses were...busy....Close to a Harris Teeter one way and a Food Lion the other. Seasonal produce stands, bike rental, traffic wasn't bad during the week, great restaurants...etc. Would and will recommend this home to all my friends and family. And did I mention the price was outstanding!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. From the proximity to the beach to the amazing amenities and furnishings, you can't go wrong! Everything was top of the line and unbelievably beautiful. Stephanie was great to work with and was easy to reach when needed! One of the best homes we have ever rented. No vacation can be bad when staying at a place like this. Thank you so much!!

Lovely Comfortable Home with Peak a Boo Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

The home has a spacious main room with high ceilings and large windows facing deck and distant ocean beach. There is a comfortable living room area with large tv and modular seating and a very large kitchen and dining room. The home is about 5th or 6th row from the beach depending on how it is counted for lots where building of new homes continues to take place. The owner was very responsive by email and seemed like a nice person who took time to answer questions in a very helpful and kind way. The home is new and nicely furnished. We were there in off season so beach was empty which we enjoyed for walks as temperatures rose during the day to the low 50s and 60s. This was a part work vacation so we were happy to be able to telework with reliable internet. We would recommend this home to anyone from couples wanting a spacious home to hang out in to families wanting a large space as the second floor had 3 bedrooms and a bathroom which we didn't even use. This is a very nice property within a mile of grocery stores in either direction and the Corolla retail areas. We would rent again and highly recommend this property.
