The Ocean Star is a beautiful, well maintained ocean front beach house. The beach is great in this location because it is not crowded. Our family had a wonderful, relaxing stay and we hope to return again next year!
Beautiful, relaxing, well-kept and in a great area

I visited Ocean Star with my wife and had a great time. This house is beautiful, well-lit and just downright relaxing. The main and top floors both have huge windows that give you 180 degree views of the beach and let in tons of natural light. We saw dolphins jumping around in the ocean almost every morning and one night had a thunderstorm which was amazing to watch as it came across the sound.
There is only one row of houses on this part of the outer banks, so we had an unobstructed view of the sound on one side and the ocean on the other. In addition, there did not appear to be any public beach paths nearby, so the beach was not very crowded at all.
Inside, there are two large TVs, one in the main room downstairs and another in the master bedroom. There are also smaller TVs in the other two bedrooms. All appliances were clean in great condition.
The town of Duck is directly to the south, so there are plenty of shops nearby to the south and a Harris Teeter grocery store is about 5 miles north.
The hot tub had a defective heater when we arrived, but Southern Shores Realty was very helpful in resolving the problem with the hot tub vendor. It took a day to fix, but I consider this very fast given that a major problem had to be first diagnosed and then fixed.
There were many insects and harmless spiders in the area, but this is unavoidable anywhere around water in North Carolina and spiders seem to be especially numerous around in the fall and late summer. The inside of the home was bug-free except for a few things that flew in when we left the doors open too long.
For the most part, I have only praise for the quality of this property and the service we received from Southern Shores Realty. The only suggestion I might offer would be to have screens on more of the windows.

Perfect size beach house

The service from Southern Shores Realty was excellent. The Ocean Star was the perfect size house for 1 family. Most of the ocean front homes in Corolla are multi family size homes which are too big and expensive for us. We wanted an ocean front house with basically a private beach, with a pool and hot tub, not too big and this house fit perfectly. The inside of the house was nice beach/neutral decor, lots of windows and very bright. There were beautiful ocean views from the back of the house and beautiful sound sunsets from the front of the house. Sitting at the dinning table being able to look at both the front and back windows was a treat. My only complaints were that there were too many spider webs on the decks (it may need an exterminator) and that there were not any stairs from the main deck to the pool area. You had to go down the inside house stairs to get to the pool area. Other than that the place was perfect for my family.

The home is lovely and very spacious, we had a very nice relaxing stay at Ocean Star. The home?s appointments were very nice and the furniture was in very good condition and well suited for our vacation. The views are fabulous, both sunrise and sunset. The open wildlife refuge across Rt. 12 lent to wonderful unobstructed views of the sound. We also enjoyed the large pool and deck area which was well appointed with nice deck chairs, tables, etc. There was plenty of beach chairs, rafts, sand toys, everything you would need for the beach. The large and very new gas grill made cooking out very enjoyable. The fishing was great, we caught 9 keepers during our stay.
There were a few areas of the home were we had issues. While the kitchen had just about everything needed to prepare meals, it was not a well stocked kitchen. The electronics in the home left a lot to be desired and certainly not in keeping with a home of that caliber and price range. There was no TV in the second living area, and the TV?s that were there were either old and in poor shape, or very small. The hot tub on the deck was newer and a nice sized hot tub, but was quite dirty and not serviced well and we were unable to use the hot tub at all the first day. There were also issues with the pool pumps which made them very loud which could be heard in the house at all times. There was also a sauna in the master bedroom that was not working. And many of the blinds in the home were broken which was very disappointing, making it hard to have privacy in some cases and block out light in other cases.
All of the issues with the home are easily remedied with some needed attention to truly make the home a star on the beach.
