Our family enjoyed this home immensely. House was comfortable (though full!) with two families of 5, and a set of grandparents. House is newer, clean, and well-stocked.

A couple of points that might be useful:
1) This home is a quick/easy walk to the beach. For in-shape adults it’s about a 7-8 minute walk. For my 80-year old father, it was about a 12-13 minute walk.
2) House came with 2 rolls of paper towels, a small container of dish soap, 3 laundry pods, lots of dishwasher pods, and about 2 rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom. I like knowing this for planning purposes. :)
3) There are no beach towels, so plan accordingly!
4) It will be hard to come up with a kitchen appliance that isn’t provided - crock pot, blender, Keurig, regular coffee pot maker, etc.!
5) There are tons of boogie boards and bikes of various sizes. There are also a couple of shovels and sand pails, as well as balls. There are 4 adult-sized beach chairs, and two beach buggies. We’ve now rented 5 houses on the OBX, and never had this much stuff provided for use!

Great house, great location. Only thing it lacks is a view, but that wasn’t high priority for us.

Thank you for a great week in Corolla! After a long year + it was great to get back to the OBX. This is certainly our happy place. I always like to give as much information as possible for the next person.

The pros: a very nice, clean house and very close to the community pool, basketball and shuffleboard. The ice cream truck stopped every night in front of the house. There is beach gear here to use. If you are traveling with a large group and everyone wants a chair, there are 6 Beach chairs so you need to bring more. There are ton of bikes and 2 Beach buggies in the garage with a ton of boogie boards, shovels, pales and all other Beach toys. Every bedroom has a TV and there is a Sonos speaker in multiple places. A/C works well through out the whole house. Outdoor shower is private and has hot and cold water. Plenty of board games and puzzles but beware, every puzzle is missing pieces.

The cons: this is Northern Corolla so be prepared for a lot of traffic and a good ride from the by-pass. Only 2 minutes from Currituck light. The grill was filthy and we spent an hour taking it apart to clean it after our first use. This home is in a planned community so there is no privacy. You have privacy fencing around your yard but people are always looking at you from their decks. If you are sitting on either deck you are looking at each other too. While there are a ton of bikes (not the owners fault) previous renters have beaten them up really bad and we spent more time then we should of fixing them throughout the week. Again, not the owners fault; there was dog waste all over the yard, the previous renters should have cleaned up after the dog so that we didn't have to. We stayed away from the hot tub, it got cool enough in the evenings to use it but the cover was shot and the tub was full of dirt. Having one at home,, they are not hard to clean.. The flies were horribly relentless, I have never had that problem in Corolla and we have been here many times, we had a 1 day reprieve during tropical storm Elsa then right back to swatting the nasty buggers and covering food and beverages outside. We are a family of 10 with 6 teenagers between myself and my brother. The listing says it sleeps 12 but that would be really tight and require you using the pull out sofa in the game room which is the lower level of the house. The pool table/air hockey was broken so we had to use stools to prop it up as level as possible. Yes there is a boardwalk to the beach however its a 2 minute bike ride or a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Ocean. We transported all the beach equipment in my truck but to drive down equally takes 10 minutes (round trip with no parking there) because of the way the roads are laid out. We ended up using the pool more than the beach just because of the logistics of it all. Regardless, we had a great week with family and are grateful to be back in our happy place again. We wish the owners many years of success with the property.

We stayed February 2021 and thoroughly enjoyed this home. Having never visited the OBX during the winter, I was mildly afraid that we might get bored when stuck indoors but this house is equipped for boredom prevention! We play some of the TONS of board games that are provided, plus the throw-back Atari game system. We had sweat inspiring air hockey matches and knocked around some pool balls. TVs in every room allowed us to individually choose what we wanted to watch.
And that kitchen is AWESOME. Plenty of room for several people and incredibly well stocked with whatever you needed!
The hot tub was great and the proximity to the beach made it a pleasant stroll. During the summer, this place will be amazing, close to the bike path AND provides bikes to use?! Beach chairs/equipment including 2 beach wagons! The community pool is right beside the house, plus basketball court and volleyball net. You just can't wrong here - loved it!

Recommendations? Ummm, I have to greet really nit-picky to come up with those. My number one will be the fireplace. I expected to enjoy the fireplace (advertised as gas) but it was electric and NO HEAT came from it. Just pretty lights of fake fire. I missed having a jetted bath tub at this house - but no house can have EVERYTHING! And there was only one "chip clip" to be found for closing half eaten bags of chips and snacks. That's it! The only things any of us found lacking in a whole week stay with vacationers that visit the OBX at least once a year for 1-2 weeks! Color us impressed 😊
