Description from owner


The ultimate beach vacation begins at Kelly's Beach Retreat in Ocean Sands, Corolla, NC, where you and your whole group can settle into a comfortable beach house offered by owner, and enjoy all the Outer Banks of North Carolina has to offer. The house is located just steps from the beach (130 yards) with ocean views from the top floor. Our beach house has five bedrooms, a large fully equipped kitchen, a large 40 foot sunning deck, outside shower, parking for 4+ cars and a screened porch. Between strolling the beach, relaxing at your private beach house, or soaking up the sun while overlooking the Atlantic, you'll never want to leave!

The wide, sandy beaches in Corolla are perfect for strolling, shell-collecting, kite flying and sunbathing. The pace in Corolla is perfect for relaxing. Rent bikes or kayaks to explore the Outer Banks area from the Currituck Sound and back to the Atlantic Ocean, or join a tour to get deeper into the wilderness. The world-class golf at the Currituck Club is minutes away, and we are close to putt putt golf, tennis, the movies and go-carts for family fun. Other nearby activities include kayaking, biking, four wheel drive area with wild horses, fishing, historical lighthouse and village with family entertainment available. Restaurant and shops are also nearby. Corolla's abundant shopping is casual and fun, with a great array of unique, locally-owned shops. Browse clothing, jewelry, gifts, T-shirts, kites, and grab a coffee or snack along the way. Food and beach essentials are easy to pick up nearby, so you'll be well prepared to kick back and relax. We are located in a private community with no public beach access so there is lots of space to play on the beach. There is a life guard on duty on the beach provided during the summer season.

We rent the beach house by the week. It sleeps 13 (1 king bedroom, 2 queen bedrooms, 2 twins in the lower bedroom and one bedroom with 2 bunk sets (3 twins, 1 double)), has many extras and is child friendly making it perfect for a family or multifamily vacation. Two week rentals can take an additional $100 off the total. Cleaning is included. Linens is optional: full house $200 which includes he sheets, towels and beds being made upon arrival. The only additional fee is the NC Tax.

We'd love to have you visit.

Very Good

“Great for large families”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2018

We would gladly stay at Kelly's Beach Retreat again. Corolla is one of the nicer parts of OBX despite being farther from the southern portions. Everything we needed was nearby and there was no part of OBX (except maybe Ocracoke) that we couldn't easily make a day trip of. The Currituck lighthouse complex is particularly close and was quite nice to visit. It was also the only lighthouse open for climbing during the first week of April. Weather was warm, chilly and everything in between, but mostly pleasant. There is plenty to see and do on the Outer Banks even for non-beachy people like my better half, who particularly enjoyed the Wright Brothers Memorial and Roanoke Island's Festival Park and Manteo waterfront shopping. The beach is an easy walk from the house even for young children and had more shells for collecting than anywhere else we've been. Also a great beach for long walks. Water was icy cold due to the time of year, but we had a great time anyway. The house was great and just what our large family of ten needed, with a bedroom to spare that we didn't use. It was very clean, updated, well-maintained and well-equipped, yet not so fancy that we had to worry all week about our kids breaking expensive or fragile decorations and furnishings. You could tell the place was set up with children in mind, which we appreciated. Lots of movies, games and cable TV for the kids, as well as beach toys, umbrellas, beach chairs, cart (which we also used as a beach stroller for our two-year-old) all provided. The ocean view from the third-floor deck was quite nice, and I enjoyed several sunrises there. You definitely are close enough to hear the waves, which I enjoy. All in all, it was a very enjoyable stay, and Glenn was a pleasure to work with. Two thumbs up.

Response from the owner Thank you for the informative review. I'm glad you had a good time. I hope you can return soon.

“Lovely, spacious and thoughtfully stocked home”

Reviewed 8 May 2014

Kelly's Beach Retreat is a fantastic place. Steps from the beach, thoughtfully stocked, and with an inviting open kitchen and dining room. The place gets amazing light and is very relaxing. Glenn was great to work with as well. Our only note is that while the home is wonderful for families--and large ones at that!--parents of toddlers should note that there are a lot of steps that are very attractive to little climbers. Had we thought about it, we would have put a mini gate or something in the car with us.

Response from the owner I'm glad you had a good time. That is a good idea on the stair child gate. This Fall I will add one for the inside and leave in one of the upstairs bedroom closets. I hope you noticed that both ends of the outside deck did have a swinging gates. I hope you can visit again soon.

“Great Relaxing Family Vacation”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2014

This has been one of our families best vacations. The weather was perfect and the beach was great!! Kelly's Beach Retreat has many amenities that made our stay very comfortable. The house setup was nice accommodating our large family. We appreciated the large kitchen table for meals and games. The porches provide nice spots to enjoy the sunrise\sunset or a quiet get away to read. Our children liked the big sandbox to play in as well as the short walk to the beach. There were certainly many things to do and see in this area. The area is full of adventures beyond enjoying the beach sand and surf like searching for the wild horses, climbing the lighthouse, exploring Whalehead and the surrounding nature walks. There is miniature golf, race carts and several golf courses near by. There are many restaurants to enjoy and unique shopping. Our only disappointment was that our week went by too fast. Next year we hope to rent your house again for two weeks. We found your house to be well equipped with everything that was needed for all ages. The children liked the games and videos, the parents of young children appreciated the high chair and playpen. Thank you for sharing your home with your large family. See you next year!

Response from the owner Thanks so much. I'm glad you had a great time. We'd love to have you back again next year.

“Will definitely be returning back to Kelly's Beach Retreat”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2014

Once again, my family and I had a wonderful visit to the Outer Banks at KBR. The owner is very easy to work with and knowledgeable on fun family activities and restaurants throughout the area. The house is the perfect size for multiple families and grandparents to spend a relaxing week close to the beach. The short walk to the ocean is accessible for our young children as well as grandparents. Also, the kitchen is fully equipped to cook large family meals at the house in order to avoid eating out every meal. The house is surrounded by large decks with ocean views that we enjoyed throughout the week while reading and sunning. This home's low key, cottage feel is the perfect place to stay at the Outer Banks for single or multiple families.

Response from the owner Thank you Nicole. See you again next year!

“Great Time!”

“Relaxing with natures beauty in a home away from home”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2011

We are returning guests to Kelly's Beach Retreat as we love the Outer Banks and this rental home is so well equipped and comfortable. The kitchen is large and seats a larger family for dinner or games. The decks are nice for enjoying the sun and viewing wildlife and stars at night. The sand area right off the deck is great for children to play as parents bbq. The beach is a short walk and lots of sand and surf to play in. This home is well maintained by the owners who are very easy to work with. Great vacation place.
