Partial ocean view w/ private pool & hot tub & recreation room

Create new memories at Family Tides (formerly Corolla Escape) by enjoying some relaxation in this beautiful semi-oceanfront family beach retreat. You will love the location in a quiet cul-de-sac with beach access only 30 yards away. One of the favorite features of Family Tides is the poolside cabana bar! Enjoy all three levels of the cabana offering a wet bar, mini-fridge, outdoor TV, second-story hot tub, and a third-story deck for maximizing ocean views!

Ground Level: Enter into a tiled den that offers a sofa bed, TV with DVD play/Roku, and a wet bar featuring a mini-fridge and microwave. Step over into the rec room and you'll find a pool table and another TV/DVD combo. There is a room with two twin beds that shares a full bathroom with a bunk room (two bunks, sleeps four). Exit through the den to access a totally gated off pool area that features a nicely size (16x32) pool and a separate kiddie pool. You'll really enjoy the outdoor, poolside cabana bar with a mini-fridge and wet bar. On the second story deck of the cabana is the hot tub which overlooks the pool area.

Mid Level: This level offers four bedrooms. There is a lovely main bedroom with a TV and access to a private deck through a sliding glass door. You will find a room with queen beds that shares a full bathroom with two twins. Each bedroom has a TV and deck access that overlooks the pool. There is also a main bedroom with TV and deck access through another sliding glass door. Rounding out this level is the laundry with a full-size washer/dryer found in the hall.

Top Level: Step up to the top level and you'll experience the nicely furnished great room with a TV and a gas fireplace. Just off the great room are the dining area and a nicely equipped kitchen and a newly updated powder room. Step outside and enjoy the beautiful ocean views from the top-level cabana deck that has a comfy double hammock swing chair for relaxing and taking in the views! There is a main bedroom with a garden tub, TV with Roku, and access to a private deck through a sliding glass door. Family Tides has something for everyone!

Perfect location, very clean and very well appointed. Beach was just a boardwalk away from the house and you could hear and see the ocean from the home.

This was my family’s second year in a row at Family Tides.You simply can’t beat all it has to offer. The highlights for us are the pool and kiddie pool, the hot tub, and the short walk to the beach. Also, the backyard fence was extended since our stay in 2020 which gave us more room and the great addition of two charcoal grills.

The home is well-equipped, very spacious and really no notable flaws. One MINOR problem was one of the irons not working. Oh well. The location is also within short driving distance of the grocery stores and restaurants .
The one issue that keeps me from giving the house 5 stars is the deck. While an improvement over last year, there are still some noticeably loose boards, loose rails, and some nails sticking up. Highly suggest these be addressed.

Overall, a really great place that made it hard to leave. Hoping to return next year!
Manager response:
Hi, Vince! We are so glad you enjoyed your return visit to Family Tides. The homeowner will be doing additional work on the deck this fall. Thank you!

We had a wonderful time at Family Tides, the home is just steps from beach access, tastefully decorated, has a wonderful amount of kitchen items (everything you could possibly need. Pool is large and has nice cement around instead of the typical wood decking.

The one flaw, the decking….many boards are lose, as well as some slats on the “crows nest”, nails pops are prevalent, wear shoes always. Sure this is something that the owner does best to maintain but weather can be a major factor. Would love to visit the home again!
Manager response:
Hi, Chelsa! It was our pleasure hosting you and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. Thank you for bringing up the decking and railings to our attention. Our maintenance team has been dispatched to address them. We look forward to hosting you again!

it is located near the beach, has very nice pool. However, dryer did not work and was fixed only on the eve of our departure. That was unacceptable as some people flew and did no bring lo of clothes. I was very difficult to get hold of management. shower curtains had black mold which could be health danger so we replaced two. Overall, was ok.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Lilit. The dryer did require a vendor for repair; we apologize they could not come earlier. The shower curtains will be checked. We hope to see you again!

Proximity to the beach is amazing! Just a Quick walk out the front door and down the short boardwalk and you are on a beautiful uncrowded beach. The pool is large and well kept, although not heated. Awesome ocean view from the top deck of the home. Upstairs Living room very comfortable! Would definitely stay here again in the future.
