ReviewsWrite a review
Our family vacationed at Corolla’s Flight of Fancy from July 21st thru July 28th 2013. Upon arrival, we found the house ready and very well cleaned. The pictures of Flight of Fancy do not do the house justice as it’s much larger than the photos depict! We found that our number of house guests (at 16) were extremely comfortable with the space and we were all able to gather for meals with seats to spare! The house itself is well taken care of and well planned. Our family loved the continuous deck which included an observation deck for wonderful views of the sound and beach. The deck also included the following: a hammock, hammock chair for two as well as outdoor table and chairs where we enjoyed the view with our morning coffee. We enjoyed the private outdoor shower with hot water and the outdoor sound system for us to enjoy while using the pool and hot tub. Our dog loved the spacious yard and the deck and we enjoyed having plenty of outdoor space as well. For us, Flight’s of Fancy’s location was ideal. The house was not too close to the beach but close enough for a quick walk to the beach. The backyard included trees and flora that gave us privacy during our pool use. The driveway was very large and easily accommodated six cars and more if we needed. It seemed that during our stay, our every need was met in reference to maintenance. The pool service came twice to check and maintain the pool & hot tub and just when the grass started to get a little bit high, the lawn service came the next morning. The owner of the house is nice and very easy to work with. Upon returning home, my husband discovered that he left his itouch at the house, the owner called the rental company and found out the cleaning service turned in my husband’s itouch -WOW - very honest people and rental company to deal with. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and vacation at Flights of Fancy as everything exceeded our expectations! Laura & Fred, Pasadena, Maryland

Our home awaw from home!
Our home awaw from home!
We have been staying at Flights of Fancy for almost 10 years. We stay twice a year, and now for three weeks a year. The house is comfortable, has everything you need, and is extremely well maintained, whether it is early in May, or in October, after a busy summer season. The location in Whalehead is the best, just right off 12N, no long blocks with stop signs. Easy walk to the beach, and the best sunrises and sunsets ever. Great pool and hot tub. Phil and Cheryle obviously take pride in their home, and you can tell they love to share it with other OBX addicts, like ourselves. Both sides of our family take turns visiting with us, and now friends join us for a week also. I highly recommend Flights of Fancy. You will get a great house, a well-appointed kitchen, comfort and relaxation. We can hardly wait to get back again this fall...and have already reserved for next spring! It truly is a home away from home, except better...no chores!!! Thanks Phil and Cheryle for a super house and many great vacations!

Ideal Vacation Spot
Ideal Vacation Spot
The property is centrally located in Corolla and has all the amenities a family needs to enjoy a vacation. We enjoyed taking a break from the beach for a cookout with family games of horse shoes, volleyball and basketball. The pool and hot tub are a bonus! The multilevel decks were unique and the relaxing hammock was ideal for reading a good book. Beach access is just about a 5 minute walk away and the Food Lion and other shops are accessible just minutes by car without having to get on the main roadway. I can't say enough about the amenities and the great design of the property. Thank you for a GREAT vacation!
