About Lynn Hoffmann

We've enjoyed vacationing on the Outer Banks for many years and also have other homes in Corolla #467724 in Whalehead Beach, #740201in Villages at Ocean Hill and a home in Duck, NC VRBO #309544, in the Four Seasons neighborhood. Corolla Light and Four Seasons communities both offer perfect settings and great community features for year round enjoyment and relaxation. Our home #467724 in Corolla's Whalehead Beach community is oceanfront.

We want you to have a great time & relaxing vacation - or a very active one if you prefer - and have outfitted the house so that will happen in style and comfort. If you want information or suggestions about the area feel free to call in addition to emailing questions.

We welcome your comments and suggestions and look forward to hearing from our guests and getting to know you.

Thank you for visiting See World - Lynn & Rich.

Lynn Hoffmann purchased this house in 2010

Why Lynn Hoffmann chose Corolla

This is the home of our dreams! We've vacationed at the Outer Banks for 20 years, often in Duck - and love it - but discovered Corolla Light has the best community features and management around. More info and a video at website address corollalightresort.co It operates the largest indoor Sports and Recreation Center on the Outer Banks year round. The town of Corolla and Currituck County cooperate to actively manage and develop great features for residents and guests alike while carefully protecting and promoting this unique special area.

What makes this house unique

There are top of the line finishes and details throughout See World and features many other homes don't have. The most unique built in pool in the area awaits you at See World. The bedrooms have custom finished bathrooms and deck access and the roof top deck has a sweeping view that allows you to 'See World'. The great room kitchen, dining and living room areas are spacious and made for entertaining.

The dining room table is large enough to do a puzzle there and still have room to set the table and enjoy dinner there.

We love coffee in the morning and Happy Hour on the soundside decks for the view

The Ships Watch is the nicest reading and game area with a bright sunrise view.

See World's game room is fun to hang around on rainy days, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" I was fortunate to stay one week with my friends at your rental, "See World" in Corolla last year. We are looking to vacation again this October in Emerald Isle, NC. Do you have a home near there or any VRBO recommendations for that area? We enjoyed "See World" so much it's difficult to find another home that even comes close. If you have any suggestions that would be great! Thanks in advance!"

(Sorry, we didn't have a home there for Stacey but we loved this unusual request so much we had to share it!)

See World

  • 5 of 5

See World was a perfect house for my family of 14. This was our first year renting a vacation home for the entire family and we would certainly do it again. The house was perfect with the 6 bedrooms and 61/2 baths. But what really made the house perfect was the indoor/outdoor pool, the hot tube and sauna. We had 2 rainy days but we could still swim and enjoy spa living. The Hoffmanns are great owners and when there was a small snafu they took care of it right away and solved the issue to our satisfaction. I would definitely rent this home again and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. Thank you Hoffmanns.

Owner's Response: Thank you Bonnie! So glad the kids (and grownups) like See World's spa and pool living when they can't make it to the beach. It's a pleasure knowing that your fist family's visit went so well that you'd do it again.

Great time at sea world

  • 4 of 5

The home met all our needs everyone was happy with their rooms. The sunsets were beautiful. Only regret was we needed to stay longer to enjoy everything the home offered. I do fill they need a better an bigger microwave for that beautiful kitchen. 3 refrigerators an 3 dish washers were perfect. Somethings were in need of replacement or repair due to abuse or use not sure. But didn't affect our stay in this beautiful home. The owners an helpers were just great to deal with.

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a good stay and appreciate that you realize that it's hard to keep everything perfect during a long rental season even though we try to the best of our ability. It's reassuring to know that you felt working with us and our staff was pleasant. Your arrival coincided with the end of tropical storm system Hermine. Thankfully, it left the area and the homes intact but there's always some after affects of a windy coastal storm. Luckily, the weather and sunsets are great afterward. Thanks for your review, Marie.

Excellent stay at See World, Corolla

  • 5 of 5

See work is such a beautiful home this year was our second year staying there for family vacation! We can't speak highly enough about how nicely decorated the house is and the way it accommodates our family of adults and children perfectly. Provides perfect views of sunset, sunrise and the ocean. All the rooms are fun and comfortable and we love the huge kitchen and family areas for games and group dinners. Don't miss out!

Our family vacation was simply awesome at See World in Corolla. The house was everything and more than we expected. The rooms were very spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. I especially liked the elevator! The kitchen was great with two refrigerators and two dishwashers, not to mention the fridge and dishwasher on the first floor. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool. Having access to the Corolla light resort was a plus. The pools there were very nice and the beach access was just steps away. Having the trolley stop so close was so convenient. We had great weather the whole week so we didn't use the pool at the Community Center but my son used the work out center there and said it was nice. We could see that if we'd had bad weather that's where we would have been able to still enjoy a swim. I definitely recommend See World as a perfect family vacation spot.

Wish we could have stayed for a month!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned home from our amazing vacation at See World! The house is exceptional...as is the Outer Banks, and the Corolla Light Community! Our crew ranged from 6 - 73 year olds, and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our week! The house is very spacious...and my parents could rest in their bedroom on the top floor, and not even know that 5 young grandchildren were having a ball on the bottom level!

The kids especially loved the indoor/outdoor pool...as well as the air hockey table, and the theater room! All of us appreciated the Corolla Light Community, and all of the activities that were offered (the breathtaking beach, surf lessons, hair wraps, shuffle board, tie-dying shirts, etc, etc). Just so many little things that were all wrapped up with this property!! I can't say enough!

A special thank you to Rich and Leslie for their quick response to a couple of very little things that came up with the house during our visit. Same day response...top notch service!

We hope to make it out to See World again one day! Many Thanks!!

AMAZING FAMILY VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time at See World!! We just got back a week ago to celebrate our parents 50th wedding anniversary. The house offered more than we could ever ask for. We were expecting the house the be very nice, but not as amazing as it is!We were amazed with the amount of detail and amenities the house included. The overlooking views of the sound and ocean were breathtaking. We enjoyed watching the sunsets each night from the balconies. Everyone in the family was always entertained with all the amenities the house offered. We thoroughly enjoyed the use of the indoor and outdoor pool, the hot tub, and the game room daily. We loved watching the CAVS finals on the large screen in the theatre room. The elevator was definitely an added bonus and useful for my parents.

The location was great. We enjoyed walking across the street to get ice cream each night. We thoroughly enjoyed the wild horse tour company directly across the street also. The shuttle service to Corolla Light Resort worked out really well. We never had to wait more than 15 minutes for a shuttle to arrive.

We couldn't have asked for a nicer stay! We highly recommend families of all ages to stay at See World! It would be a dream come true for us to come stay again in the future.

Thank you so much for your hospitality, it was our best family vacation yet!
