Why Barbara/Homeowner chose Ocean Sands

Corolla has one of the widest beaches along the Outer Banks. Dogs are also allowed on the beaches all year round regardless of the season or time of day. Corolla is a very quiet area of the OBX but still close to many restaurants, food stores, shopping and leisure activities. Corolla also offers a free public park (The Whalehead Club) with access to piers and is a great place for crabbing with the family. The lake that's located one block behind the house is a beautiful and tranquil place to walk to and even fish with the family. There is a lot of wildlife like turtles and catfish to feed to keep the kids occupied. I'm very excited about the walking paths Ocean Sands North has just added on Route 12 through the town. It has an appeal and look similar to the town of Duck.

What makes this house unique

My house is very close to the beach on a quiet road with absolutely no busy roads to cross like other houses. This will allow no worries for you in regards to your kids who are old enough to walk back to the house by themselves. Also a great neighborhood to walk your dog and take the family along to explore the nearby lake with its trails and wildlife. Don't forget the cheese doodles to feed the friendly turtles in the lake! They will actually swim up to the shore when they see you or hear you for their daily snack. Many recreation items provided at the house both outside and inside for rainy days. Chess, checkers, board games, puzzles, battleship, foosball, videos, Netflix movies, basketball, corn hole and horseshoes to name a few.


Nearest Restaurant
Many Restaurants-seafood, steak, pizza, burgers
Car: recommended

House is 450 feet onto beach w/ direct beach access. There are 5 short houses between you and the ocean. Less than a 45 second walk from door step to boardwalk at end of Mainsail Arch beach! Ocean views and sunrises from the back & side decks and enclosed outside porch. Close (less than one mile) to shopping centers, restaurants, bagel/deli, pizza, ice cream, golf, mini golf, go carts, movie theater, sound side activities. Nearby to wild horse tours in 4-wheel drive country. 1 block in front of lake/pond to take walks to feed friendly turtles and fish!

Other Activities: There is plenty of shopping and casual and fine dining in the area. Wooded walkway at end of street that leads directly onto the beach. Jet ski and kayak rentals nearby. Currituck Beach Lighthouse and 4-wheel drive country to see wild horses on beach are a short drive away.

Golf: The Currituck Club course on 620 Currituck Clubhouse Drive in Corolla is an 18 hole course within one mile of house. Also discounts given to Kilmarlic Golf Club.

House was perfectly located and cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everthing we needed. Plenty of space for everyone. All the kitchen supplies were surprisingly enough. We even made tamales in the big steamer pot. Pool toys for kiddos were plenty. Couldn't get the little ones out of the hot tub and pool. Close to the beach. Large eating space and beautiful surrounding decks. If i had to make one critic it would be the yard. The grassy area surrounding the bbq pit/hammock could of been trimmed back so we could play corn hole without the high, itchy grass. But, we will definitely be back!!

Great house/location

  • 4 of 5

A great house that's even closer to the beach then it appears on the map. And it's a fabulous beach...feels like you can walk for miles.

Was a little early in the year to enjoy the pool (too cold) but we were happy we came ahead of the big summer rush as the houses are *right* on top of each other. Was definitely better with fewer people around. A worthwhile tradeoff for the pool temps...And there was always the hot tub!

A good base of operations to explore much of the Outer Banks (our day trips took us as far as Cape Hatteras...if you make the trek, be sure to stop at Pea Island.)

Our only complaint was how truly barebones the supplies are. They're up front about it in the description, but paying extra for towels? Bring your own toilet paper? Just seemed a little penny-pinching and off-putting compared to other home rentals I've visited.

Still, overall the stay was well worth it. Don't know as I'll do the Outer Banks again (so many other places to explore!) but if I did, I'd be more than happy to return to Bernie's Bungalow.

Fantastic house and location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better place to stay! Bernie's Bungalow has everything we needed and was so close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. I only wish it was closer so we could stay again!

The house was spacious for my family; it was very clean and close to Timbuck 2 for shopping, eating, etc...The beach was closer than I thought from the pictures. It was 5 houses away, literally right up the street, which was perfect to go back and forth. The pool area was maintained well with adequate lounge and chairs with a hot tub to relax in. I would definitely book in the future and recommend to my friends.

The house was neat and well kept. There were a lot of extras in the home to make my stay easier. The bonus was that I only walked 4 or 5 houses to get to the beach so the kids could go back and forth with no problem. I was very happy with this house and will definitely be going back.

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

The google maps view made it seem like we were about a little bit away from the beach. That was not in fact the case. It took us no more than 5 min to get to the walkway to the beach. The property was well maintained and quite clean.

It was the little things that truly made this house one of our best experiences in the Outer Banks. The rolling cart for the beach, beach umbrellas, and beach chairs were a great surprise and came in handy. The fully stocked kitchen did not leave us needing anything. There were pitchers for lemonade, cookie sheets, enough silverware and lots of pots and pans. We also loved that the house came with some movies and board games!

The house is right by Timbuck2 which has cute beach shops and is about 5 mins from a Food Lion!

Overall it was a great stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone! Plus there was plenty of outdoor seating and furniture for everyone to enjoy the beautiful weather.
