Let me start with what this house didn't have,,, headaches, stress, problems, noise, disturbances and tension. I can only begin to say how wonderful our stay was. This home is not missing a single amenity. It has every utensil and small appliance you could need including a blender for poolside drinks. Two grills (one charcoal, one gas). Quick hotdogs for lunch or a full surf and turf meal at the house is an easy task. Plenty of seating for everyone and a beautiful open floor plan so even when people are in different areas of the main floor everyone is still together. Yet there is plenty of privacy because of the way the bedrooms are laid out. The laundry room is right beside the downstairs bathroom so you can change out of your wet swimwear and toss it right in the wash. The pool and hot tub allow for relaxing yet fun evenings at the house after spending the day at the beach. Enough outside tables, chairs and loungers for the whole crew. We bought a foldable wagon from a local club store before we went on vacation and we literally walked to the beach every day. You do not need to waste space in your vehicle to take beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards or a sand shovel. It is all there. There is a balcony on the front of the house and 2 full porches on the back with a high watch area so you can enjoy the beautiful ocean views without a struggle. The ONLY thing I said I wish the house had was more hangers in the closets. Take your own if you have more than 5-6 items to hang. I was actually going to buy some and let them behind when we left but I didn't see any while I was out. It was not a major inconvenience otherwise I would have found some at a store somewhere. The shops in the plaza a block in front of the home and the ones across the main road are enough to get anything you could possibly need or want and to buy souvenirs for anyone and everyone. The only suggestion I would have for the owner is to have other pictures posted for rental purposes. The pictures were enough to sell me on renting the home but they seriously do it no justice. One happy renter here. Will definitely return!!!
What a fantastic home in Corolla. Upon arrival we loved how the home was situated on the half acre and immediately explored all the decks. The views of the ocean are incredible. Inside, the house is laid out as described, and the pictures are acurate. The kitchen has absolutely everything you will need. A must for us was a gas grill, which they have and worked well.
We enjoyed the game alcove and played cards there a few times. The den on the second floor was quite useful. Having a quiet place to hideaway was nice, especially in the evening. Having the music setup was a pleasant surprise which we enjoyed a lot.
While there are a lot of stairs, this is the same for all the homes in Corolla. Our 80 yo Mother, who does have some issues walking, managed fine.
The pool was wonderful and kept very clean. We used the hot tub daily. The walk to the ocean wasn't bad although I would bring a cart if I was lugging a lot of gear. The owner has provided everything you will need for the beach. You will need to bring your own coolers.
Speaking of walking, the neighborhood was great for our daily walks and running. We enjoyed exploring it and seeing the various houses. And it is worth checking them out, even if by car :-).
It is incredibly private here. Being in the pool or on the decks was personal, and not like some places where everyone is so close. In the morning we were treated to deer along with other wildlife. At night, the sky was bright and full of stars. And of course, the sound of the ocean waves crashing is amazing.
Now as it was August, it was hot. So we certainly appreciated the a/c which worked perfectly. We also liked having ceiling fans.
A huge plus was being so close to the shopping center and having Harris Teeter down the road. We didn't have to waste a lot of time in traffic to stock up the fridge or get any supplies. Which allowed us to do what we came for ... relax and enjoy our vacation. That doesn't mean we didn't go out and explore. The wild horses, the lighthouse, Wright Brothers, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, there is a lot to do!
Jesus was great to work with. We had a minor hiccup the first day (mixup on our part) and he was in touch right away and resolved it for us. He also touched base when the rip current warnings were posted so we would know. Finally he promptly returned our security deposit. Having rented houses around the world, he was the most prompt with this step!
We look forward to returning
We had a great week visiting the Outer Banks. Thanks to Jesus for providing everything we needed to make our stay wonderful. The best part was the linens on the beds when we arrived. The last thing I wanted to do after 13 hours in the car was to make the bed before I climbed in.
I didn't think we would use the pool but we used it everyday. It was great to come back from the beach when the sun got to be too hot on the feet and soak in the pool.
All in all it was the best Outer Banks week we've had.
This home met all of our expectations and beyond. We had a full house of 12 both children and adults and had plenty of room and privacy. The home is clean and well maintained. The pool and hot tub area are perfect when not out enjoying the beach or other attractions. The family gathering area and kitchen are on the top level so be prepared for a lot of stairs. The kitchen had everything we needed for family meals including 2 dishwashers, a Keurig and drip coffee maker, which was very handy for our large group. The walk to the beach is about 2 blocks. The owner was promptly responsive to our needs or questions with just a phone call. We had a delightful, relaxing time and highly recommend this lovely vacation home.
House was perfect and clean, made for a nice relaxing vacation with family! Thank you
The home was exactly as it was described - everything that was needed was provided. I have rented several homes both in the Outer Banks and the Jersey Shore and when people say "ocean view" you normally are standing on your toes looking between houses to get a glimpse of it. This home you can see the ocean from the living level and the sky deck - just beautiful. The weather was perfect and the short walk to the beach was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better house - better time or a better owner - Jay, the home owner was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Highly recommend this home.
Located in a prime real estate area within walking distance to both the beach and shopping, dining, bars, ice-cream, entertainment, etc.
