We cant say enough about our week at the Castle by The Sea! The house is expansive, gorgeous and beautifully decorated for that perfect beach house. The kitchen is very well equipped and spacious and was wonderful to cook in. The house is very spacious with many rooms for a large group to have privacy if they wanted to have their own time. It was great having the private pool and hot tub. Hearing the waterfall is also very soothing. Each bedroom had a perfect view of the ocean, and hearing the waves at night would gently lull us to sleep. The bathrooms also had a wonderful jacuzzi tub that you could relax and watch the ocean waves roll in. Very calming!
After experiencing this incredible home and being so close to the ocean, it's definitely oceanfront going forward. The walk to the beach is perfect having it's own walkway. Before you get to the beach, there is some great seating that you can sit and just enjoy watching the waves.
Also has a bathroom and shower at the walkway so that you don't even have to come into the house to use the restroom while you're at the beach.
We cannot wait to come back again next year and hopefully convince more family to make the drive and come. I highly recommend this house. The owner was very friendly and helpful and made our stay very relaxing which is what I needed.

The Castle by the Sea is a luxury beachfront property with an ideal location on Corolla Beach. The check in process was very convenient without the hassle of dealing with a management company. This was a huge relief after our long drive and late night arrival. Waking up the first morning to the sound of the ocean at sunrise was amazing. We enjoyed our breakfast in the beautiful sunroom overlooking the atlantic. The house has all the amenities and comforts a family needs. The family room has a view similar to being on a cruise ship. The Master bedroom is very spacious and has an incredible view of the ocean. My daughters loved being together in the nursery attached to the room; it has a crib and a day bed. The ground floor has a pool table and an arcade style video game. We enjoyed having our own private pool, we especially liked the private beach access.The owner of the house is very friendly; midweek he called to make sure we were enjoying our stay. We felt so welcomed and at home from the start of our vacation. This was my children's first family trip with their grandparents and uncle and over the span of the week we had so many precious and priceless memories. The Castle by the Sea has something for everyone. My parents enjoyed reading on the deck every morning. My brother enjoyed writing in his journal after watching the sunrise and then going for morning jogs on the beach. My husband enjoyed being so close to the water and went for a swim in the ocean and the pool every day. I was so happy making new memories with my daughters and watching the family being together. We enjoyed going for a family walk on the beach every day before sunset and sitting on the top deck at night staring at the starlit sky. The house has a private feel, while still being conveniently located near area attractions and restaurants. It was especially great to have a 24 hour Harris Teeter nearby. The owners have created such a wonderful ambiance for everyone to enjoy and feel at home.
This house was great for our group vacation. The owners were incredibly friendly and willing to help with the process. The house is huge with plenty of room (we had 14 people and you would barely know it). The private pool and hot tub was great for enjoying after the beach or late at night. Corolla is a great place to go if you want to get away from everything and just relax. This house makes that possible with its private beach entrance and distance from other properties. I would definitely recommend to large groups of family or friends.
