House, 9 Bedrooms (incl Family Suite), 7 Baths, (Sleeps 18-24)

Come experience the uniqueness of Sea Forevermore, a 5,000 sq. ft home offering 8 bedrooms PLUS a separate Queen-bedroom family suite, oceanside in the Outer Banks’ desirable Whalehead Beach location. Only 250 feet to OBX’s best beaches, Sea Forevermore boasts all new furniture, appliances, and bedding. We are also excited to have installed an elevator, and a luxury master shower in the family suite, among many other amenities.

If you have a large group for gatherings, Sea Forevermore is for you! All of your group can enjoy a sweeping view of the ocean waves from the wall of windows spanning the entire third floor, or from the Captain’s Watch hot tub at the top of the roof. The Great Room, with carefully selected décor, invites the seascape inside. Perfect for large gatherings, the living area features a huge luxury stone-gray Italian-leather sectional sofa and matching ottoman and chair surrounding the 47” smart HDTV. Behind the sofa is a separate seating area for conversation near the kitchen. Nearby is a cuppola with seating area with comfortable stuffed chairs for eating or playing cards while enjoying the best view of the home. The kitchen area has new stainless steel appliances, mahogany cabinets, breakfast bar seating for 4, and plenty of cooking gear for the discriminating chef. For our Fall and Spring guests, a two-sided gas fireplace divides the Great Room with reading nooks on either side. The dining area, which is connected to the Great Room, boasts a fabulous table for 12, seafoam-green sofas, wicker chairs, and window seats to take in the view of the ocean while you dine, or peacefully read. Off the Great Room/Dining Room is the family master suite, with its own Queen bedroom, kitchenette with new refrigerator and dishwasher, custom shower, smart TV, and Queen sleeper sofa in a private separate sitting area. The Family Suite provides phenomenal flexibility. Families with small children can have them nearby but not in their beds, or in rooms down the hall. Or, treat parents, anniversary or romantic couples, or your special guests to their own private suite!

The mid-level boasts 6 bedrooms (4 masters, plus adjoining King BRs with a jack-&-jill bath) with all-new furniture, a smart HDTV in EACH room, deck access, and a separate washer-dryer. Our handicapped-accessible Queen “Corolla Coastline” BR features a roll-in shower and settee with hand rails. The adjoining King Bedrooms preside over one side of the house with great views! The other side's bedrooms are separate-bath masters with Queen beds. One of them, “Solarium Sunset,” has a Queen bedroom with an exclusive sitting room from which to enjoy sunsets, and a huge bathroom. Egyptian cotton sheets, plush towels, soft bath mats, and luxury bedding unlike anything provided by a rental management company in OBX will enhance your stay.

The first level houses 2 bedrooms with adjoining full bath, recreation room, microwave, and expansive laundry room. The “Rattan” Queen bedroom is expansive, with handcrafted furniture, while “Twin Beach” embraces a coastal design offering two twin beds. Both have 32' new smart HDTVs. The recreation room features a pool table, new 70” smart HDTV, huge sectional sofa with three recliners, game table and chairs, microwave, and bar with built-in poker, roulette, and blackjack games, full refrigerator freezer (three in the house, plus a wine/drink cooler in the bar). A home theater system has been purchased. Through the sliding glass door is the pool, hot-tub, tiki bar area, outside shower, and barbecue grills (both propane and charcoal). The current 'cocktail' pool is heated in spring and fall, and is steps from a huge hot tub. As the headline above states, we have a brand new 140,000 BTU pool heater for those cool evenings. Relax after your ocean swim in the cool pool water, or climb to the Captain’s Watch hot-tub to relax with the best view in OBX. The beach, with its soft white sands is only a minute walk out the back yard (no requirement to go to the corner). Ride our bikes to close-by Food Lion and seafood/restaurants/gift shops in Monterey Plaza Shopping Center, or the farmer's market, restaurants, upscale shopping and amusement park at the Timbuk II Center. Make Sea Forevermore your chosen vacation house, and enjoy special discounts as we continue to outfit our home with the luxurious touches you want and deserve, but at family-friendly prices!

BARGAIN HUNTING? Small improvements (outside painting, landscaping, etc.) are being delayed in favor of other amenities. But that means you can have 9 bedrooms and the ocean 250 feet away at exceptionally low high season rates.

About Jim

We are the Towarnicky family, and the proud owners of 'Sea Forevermore,' our oceanside beach house at Corolla in the Outer Banks, NC. Jim is an attorney who specializes in real estate. This is our home, not a hotel, and so who we rent to is often more important than the rate. We do not use an impersonal rental management company, and care about your vacation experience so you will treat our home like who you are, guests in our home. To protect against scammers, always contact Jim to verify your week is available and do not send money to anyone by wire transfer. We can be flexible to meet your needs. Our family welcomes your family and friends to share our home, where you can Sea Forevermore!

Jim purchased this House in 2012

Why Jim chose Corolla

Our family vacationed several times over the years at the Outer Banks, and loved the clean, white sandy beaches. Other beach areas in other states that we tried were too crowded and dirty, and the houses too small. When we decided to finally purchase a vacation home, we knew we would come back to this fabulous resort area. It has everything you could want in a vacation spot: historic sightseeing with Wright Brothers First Flight, boutique shops, the Lost Colony outdoor drama, Currituck Lighhouse, Historic Corolla, and the nature preserve section with wild horses. There are all sorts of aquatic sports, and of course, the ocean and beach. Corolla is family-oriented and quiet, if that is what you wish, but connected to a string of towns along the coast (Duck, Southern Shores, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, Manteo) with varying activities and nightlife for all ages. It really provides the best of all worlds!

What makes this House unique

We are making this house special with conveniences and luxuries to make your vacation the best! We have expansive decks for lounging, and a four-story hot tub at the ship's watch. You have a large pool-side hot tub as well, as you lounge pool-side. You will want for nothing in our spacious kitchen with gas range and two ovens. Enjoy family dinners on our 12-seat dining table and 4-seat breakfast bar. Our elevator and handicapped-accessible bedrooms and bathroom ensure that all family members can share your vacation. There is never a dull moment when you can splash in the pool or hot tub with friends, play billiards, and watch movies on our 70' smart HDTV. The house is spacious enough that your family and friends can share the experience, but be separated and not on top of each other all the time. But the best amenity is simply the location, where you can stroll down the street only 250 feet to the beach entrance, or sip a favorite drink on the decks, watching the waves in a panoramic view so soothing that you'll wish you didn't have to leave. We STILL feel that way ourselves every time we come down.

                                                                    Tori H.

                                                                    We had a wonderful stay at Sea Forevermore! Even with cooler weather there was plenty to keep adults and teenagers having fun. There are plenty of bikes (enough for 10 of us to take bike rides), games, movies, beach toys and beach chairs. The two kitchens are very well equipped. We loved both the hot tubs and the pool! We would definitely recommend this property!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    I'm glad even with the colder weather in our beach town that Tori's family could have a good time. I do not know what it was that we could not obtain five stars, but will keep trying!

                                                                    Perfect for our girls weekend getaway!

                                                                    Megan I.VIRGINIA BEACH

                                                                    Sea Forevermore was more than we could have asked for! We chose this home knowing that the weather wouldn't be favorable for an outdoor vacation, this home had plenty to keep us busy inside. We loved the ease of the elevator that let us unload from the carport to the kitchen on the top level, everything from the lights to the dishes in the kitchen were labeled so we could find everything easily! We would love to come back in the summer when we could take advantage of the pool, tiki bar, bikes and the beautiful beach just a short walk away!!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    These were very appreciative and considerate renters. We provide discounts for returning renters or those on referral, and would be pleased to arrange a time when they can come back and enjoy ALL our amenities. We'd be happy to do so for all our renters.

                                                                    Perfect house for a family gathering

                                                                    Christine A.

                                                                    Our stay was fantastic, even if we didn't see the sun for 5 days! Went in the hot tub during a sleet storm, had a great time with family, and never felt like there were 18 ppl all in the house! This house has everything. Would absolutely recommend this place!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    We loved having these appreciative guests, and sorry we could not arrange better weather. They point out a non-obvious benefit, is that we try to provide all number of amenities for when the weather will not cooperate, or not everyone wants to be together at the beach, from tens of puzzles, board games, sports balls, bikes, xbox and games, dvds, [smart tvs and Netflix], cooking appliances, hot tubs, heated pool into December, even trashy novels! You can be together . . . yet do your own thing. If our guests with unfortunate weather will come back, we try to provide additional discounts just so they will be happy to Sea Forevermore!

                                                                    Amazing Time Had by All

                                                                    Alison B.

                                                                    Our group (19) ranged from 2 years old up to 91 years old. Every person in the group was more than comfortable and had plenty to do. The grandmothers enjoyed reading in the nook as well as sitting by the fireplace to stay warm, while the kids loved the heated pool (to cold for adults), the adults loved the hot tubs and getting to see the sun rise from the captains watch was extra special (definitely set the alarm if you aren't an early riser to see the sky come alive).

                                                                    We also had our wedding reception 1 afternoon in the house, hosting 45 people. The house was the perfect size to accommodate the group and the open floor plan made it just the social environment we were dreaming of. Everyone was able to move around and talk, laugh and enjoy each others company. Eat, drink and be merry

                                                                    The elevator made moving around from one floor to the next so easy and the kids as well as the adults loved how the picture changed from under water to the lighthouse as you went up the floors. The 70 inch tv was loved by the gamers in the family.

                                                                    We rented the house for 9 days which wasn't enough. There is so much to do in the off season (the wild horse fund tour is a must do) that we are already discussing coming back next year and making it a yearly tradition.

                                                                    It was a pleasure to work with Jim who was more than accommodating to our needs as well ask quickly answered any questions we had during the planning process. Once we checked in, it was nice to know we could get a hold of Jim if need be but every thing was perfect and very little contact needed.

                                                                    Everyone in the group would highly recommend renting Sea Forevermore.

                                                                    Ideal for us

                                                                    lars l.

                                                                    Great family vacation in a great home

                                                                    Karen F.

                                                                    Our first time in OBX and we were not disappointed. Sea Forevermore had everything, plus some, that we needed. The home is well maintained and the accommendations were great for our family of 12 with plenty of space to spread out. The weather was beautiful and the highlight was the inground pool after the beach that we all enjoyed, especially the night swimming. Also the 2 hot tubs were fun along with making s'mores at the fire pit. We had fun riding the bikes around the quiet neighborhood. The home is close to town and is an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. This home, with all the amenities, as well as the ease of talking with Jim, the owner, made our family vacation a most memorable one.

EVERY GROUP WHO RENTS OUR HOME HAS TO SIGN OUR FORM LEASE (also, NC Vacation Rental Act law requires you receive disclosures and notices from us which are in the Lease). Due to VRBO/HA regs., you cannot give us your personal info to put into the Lease before you commit to rent. So please review the form posted on the site and MAKE INQUIRY before trying to reserve your dates for any term you do not understand or care for. We will expect a signed lease to be scanned and emailed or faxed to us at the time of renting, with original signatures to follow. [You send two originals Fed Ex or Priority mail --so they can be tracked -- and when they arrive, we sign both and send an executed original back to you for your records]. YOUR RESERVATION WILL BE CANCELED IF YOU RESERVE AND FAIL TO SEND A PROPERLY-FILLED OUT AND EXECUTED LEASE. We can adjust terms on the Lease upon reasonable request. 4. WE DO NOT CHARGE A SEPARATE DAMAGES DEPOSIT. WE FEEL IT NOT RIGHT FOR YOU TO GIVE UP MONEY FOR US TO HOLD FOR SOMETHING NOT LIKELY TO BE USED IN THE FIRST PLACE. Instead, we take your credit card info on the Lease. The Lease explains how the system works. Our reviews attest to the fact we've never wrongly assessed for damages (6 times total in 8 years). 5. We have a renter's guide with all our information the terms of which are incorporated into the Lease. 6. If you need to cancel, we try to release the Property4U. If successful at or near the same rent, you get a full refund (so notify us as early as possible). If cancel too late to re-let, no refund.
