Overview

Corolla House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

SATURDAY CHECK IN - 4 WHEEL DRIVE REQUIRED - LINENS AND TOWELS PROVIDED - Approximately 3 miles up the 4x4 beach

Welcome to 'Lightly Salted', one of Swan Beach's finest cottages perched against oceanfront dunes of the wild and beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. This home boasts unobstructed views of blue-green waves, bubbling white surf, and wide, sandy, wheat toned beaches as far as the eye can see. The enchantment begins as soon as your 4x4 vehicle leaves the pavement to drive right on the sand, only a few feet from the roar of the surf.

Panoramic views, state of the art electronics, exceptional quality bedding and Sleep Number® beds, delicious drinking water and a well-stocked kitchen are at your disposal. The state of the art electronics systems include a 55 inch Sony LED HDTV in the living room and 32 inch Samsung HDTV's in every bedroom, all connected to every channel offered by Directv, the 'Ultimate Package' and NFL package. Panasonic Surround Sound and accounts with Pandora and Netflix offer an unbeatable movie and music experience. The pool stereo system brings the tunes outside to the pool and picnic area with large hot tub and a gas grill. The ground floor half bath and mini fridge make poolside entertainment a breeze. Hop out of the pool and walk 50 feet across the dune to the ocean!

The extremely well equipped kitchen has all new major appliances, cookware, utensils and small appliances. Brew your morning coffee in the Keurig, Mr Coffee, or thermal coffee pot and enjoy it while watching the waves from the screened porch just off the kitchen.

Sleep Number® beds with dual comfort controls and 400 thread count linens are in 4 rooms: the third floor master king and queens for three more bedrooms. The kid's room with bunk set and pull out futon has an X-Box 360 Kinect with games provided. Fall asleep to your private music selection with the iPad, iPod, iPhone docking station stereos located in every bedroom.

Spend a luxurious week enjoying the beach, watching the wild horses graze and relaxing to the sound of the pounding surf from the well-appointed accommodations of 'Lightly Salted'.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved staying in the 4x4 area of OBX in Lightly Salted. The home was well appointed and was a perfect location in Carova, far enough to get past the daily beach goers who drive up for the day, but close enough for an easy 10 minute drive to amenities in Corolla. We saw the horses two days, had the OBX Boil company deliver an amazing dinner one night, and enjoyed the pool, beach, hot tub, and selection of board games. Futon in bunk room should not be considered a bed (huge hump in the middle when flat), and biting bugs outside the home were bad but have no other complaints. Amazing stay and would definitely stay here if returning to Carova beach.

Lightly Salted was a great vacation house! Kitchen well stocked, upgrades throughout, sleep number beds were not that pleasing but o.k. Even had pack -n-play & high chair which were nice to have there with a little one. Only 3.5 miles down the not that far! (Pay attention to high tide times)

Awesome house, home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic, well equipped with all the comforts of home and then some. The pool exceeded our expectations, and the sound system at the pool was great. Quick access to the beach to enjoy the best of both worlds. We will stay there again next time we come back to the OBX. If you're a first timer, don't trust Garmin to lead you to the house. Drive 3.5 miles down the beach, go about 1/4 mile past the house, THEN turn left to get on Sandfiddler Rd, 1634 Sandfiddler Rd is the address. DEFLATE your tires to 18 lbs max. We got away without doing that for the first few days, but the sand got softer and deeper, and of course we got stuck, but managed to dig ourselves out. No issues after deflating. Enjoy!!

Map

Corolla, a three mile drive, boasts all kinds of shopping, eating and entertainment options. There are two major food stores, a fresh vegetable and seafood stand, gift and sundry shops, golf, and restaurants for every price range. Travel farther south to Duck for unlimited water sports on the sound: paragliding, jet skiing, paddle boarding, water skiing, wind surfing and fish charters. Travel a few more miles to Pirates Cove for world class deep sea fishing.

If you love lighthouses, you will find three available for climbing within the roads of the Outer Banks. Get on a ferry and you can climb two more.
