Pros: The location of this rental can't be beat! You and your little ones can walk to the private beach without any issues. If you are not a "beach" person, you can stay home and swim in the salt water pool.
Cons: The washer and dryer needs to be updated. Not kid friendly furniture as there was a glass table for the dining table. Rental company could not confirm whether the property was cleaned and inspected by my check in (4pm.)

This was our favorite house out of the last 11 years visiting OBX! Recently renovated, this house has everything you will need. The upper floor is just gorgeous with spacious, high vaulted ceilings, an updated sparkling kitchen and comfy, updated furniture. The two master bedrooms/baths are great and the kids had bright, cheerful rooms. We loved all the decks and porches that this house had and all enjoyed lying in the comfy hammock. The pool was private and beautiful with lovely landscaping! This house sits on a quiet street with just a short walk to the beach. Our beach was also very quiet and gorgeous! A gem in Corolla!

Place was updated top to bottom, the pool area was beautiful. Very close to private beach access. Would re-rent without a second guess. This was our third yr in a row out OBX and this was our best place yet. Very close to everything well stocked kitchen. Love it would recommend it to anyone.

I rented this with other family members. There were 11 of us in all and we all fit well in that house. Beds were comfortable. The house was nicely decorated. The pictures don't do the house justice. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need and recently redone. We loved hanging out and swimming in the salt water pool. The house was a short walk to the beach. Beach chairs were available for our use as well as a gas grill. We also enjoyed the screened in porch at night.You could see the ocean from the top front deck. Beach Realty was excellent to deal with. I would definitely consider renting this house again when we go back.

I would say excellent but we did have a few issues, just simple things otherwise we loved it.
My sister would suggest a second refrigerator or an ice machine. They have stayed at other places like Duck much more extravagant and that is the only thing they missed.
We had trouble with the internet(wifi) it went out several times and we had to keep unplugging it and hoping it would come back on.
The showers outside had only hot water.
I would suggest getting a new washing machine soon because it is very loud.
We loved being so close to the beach and having the pool. My mom, myself and my sister walked on the beach every morning and walked across to duck donuts then walked back. We liked the fact it was close to Harris Teeter and Food Lion. We actually visited Food Lion more because it was a little more reasonable in price.
Overall we had a lovely stay and would stay here again.
As soon as got back home we all really missed seeing that glorious view in the morning and walking on the beach.
Thank you for a lovely vacation.

We vacationed with another family. There were 4 adults and 5 kids and the home accomodated us just fine. The kitchen updates were great. We wanted for nothing in this kitchen. I would suggest a larger garbage can other than the small one under the since. Maybe a stainless steel one that can be kept next to the island. We loved the open concept and all the decks. The pool was fantastic, although the night light in the pool did not do much. Plenty of seating and awesome grill. Location was great and a nice quiet street and just a quick walk to the beach. Bedrooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. The master with the shower needs a TV though. The only other thing I would put on the "wish list" would have been a hot tub. Other than that, this is a perfect house for families and you can tell the owners take pride in it. Can't wait for next year!
