                    What a great vacation home. My wife, our four children and I had a wonderful stay at "Wish You Were Here." So convenient to the beach and to the shopping/restaurants in Corolla, and the house itself was a great place to relax. We loved the pool and grill all on the same location - never had to go out for dinner. And one thing that really stood out were all the little touches - the beach cart, chairs, toys for the kids, board games, books to read, etc. All of things you need to make the trip so much easier so we could really relax and enjoy our time as a family. We highly recommend this house - and look forward to spending another week there next summer.

                    Thank you Julie and Dennis for sharing your home with us. We had a great time and the pictures and descriptions for this home are perfect. It's so cute, clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed for two families. The roof deck was our favorite place to end the day. The beach access was new and easy. The pool area is where we spent most of our time because we had quite a HOT week. It's just the break we all needed !~

                    Never having rented a holiday home before or travelled to the Outer Banks, we had no idea what to expect. But from the moment we arrived, we were as comfortable as if it was our own home. The house is beautifully decorated and appointed with everything you could possibly wanted. We spent hours in the heated pool and hot tub and walking on the beach. There was even time to enjoy the horse shoes outback and have a games night with the games upstairs. We all needed a week of relaxation and I must say :"Wish You Were Here" delivered.

                    My family (5 adults and 1 child) stayed at Wish last week and couldn't have been happier with the accomodations. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need for the nightly meal preparations and the house was very clean - decorated just beautifully. The pool area was our favorite - very spatious - and plenty of toys already there...no need to bring your own! We also loved that it was an easy walk to the beach with the beach cart. We loved our stay and will look to stay here again next time we are in Corolla. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.

                    Our first time visiting the Outer Banks. Everything was perfect. The weather cooperated and we enjoyed beach and pool every day! The house was exactly as described. Plenty of space, clean, fantastic condition and layout. The outdoor closet provided all we needed to play outside.....Beach chairs, beach cart, pool and beach toys...even a kite. Wish I was there right now!!!!

                    Wish You Were Here was the ultimate in vacation housing. Everything we needed was available, the property was exceptionally clean, and the pool area was more than we could imagine. It was a great place for extended family to gather to celebrate. I appreciated the quick response from owners when there were questions and would definitely recommend the place to anyone visiting the Corolla NC area. Thank you so much for helping to make our vacation a memorable experience.

                    Wish You Were Here was one of our best vacations ever! The house was beautifully decorated, the kitchen was stocked with everything you could imagine, the pool was wonderful and the location was perfect. It was a short 5 minute walk to the beach and the house had everything you would need for a great vacation! We even found some a crabbing kit in the closet and the kids had a blast crabbing at the park and flying kites on the beach. The only issue we had with the home was the internet connection wouldn't allow more then 2 computers/ipads on the system at one time. The beds were very comfortable and room sizes were just enough. This was our first visit to Corolla and we told everyone we know how wonderful this house was for a smaller family. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and still had 2 rooms that no one used. I consider myself very picky when it comes to finding a nice hotel/house for my family and this one was perfect!

The number of connections are unlimited. We just have not had anyone ask for more than 2 in the past. We will be sure to have more logins available for future guests. Hope to see you again soon!

                    We recently stayed at Wish You Were Here and had an amazing vacation in the Outer Banks of NC! This home is absolutely beautiful inside! It is like walking into a Pottery Barn store, very homey, very updated, very comfortable. The house was clean & had all of the things we needed- pool chairs, deck chairs, pool toys, all the kitchenware you would need, wi-fi, everything! The house is a couple blocks to the beach so if you are going to go for the day, I suggest bringing the beach cart which will help you in lugging the chairs, umbrella, etc. to the beach. It is so nice to have a washer & dryer available at the property as well. We went on many long walks along the beach and just throughout the neighborhood. I would recommend going to the Carrituck Lighthouse & surrounding nature center area which was really beautiful. Also had a chance to parasail which was fun & gives you a beautiful view of the area! The photos of this house are very accurate. We really enjoyed hanging out on the deck and the upstairs loft area was a fun little getaway for the kids. The area is surrounded by huge homes which are all beautiful and well taken care of. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend and hope to be back one day!

                    We normally don't vacation in the same area in consecutive years, but we enjoyed our stay last year so much that we decided to break our rule. The house was just as clean and well maintained as last year. The outdoor bar (with refrigerator!) and gas grill were great additions. The local property manager was extremely responsive and helpful when we had questions. One of our party used the loft as a bedroom. He is 6'5" and slept comfortably in the day bed.

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: We first ventured to Corolla in 2005, and in the last 8 years, we head down as often as our schedule allows. We enjoy the northern end of Corolla, and the offseason stillness and beauty of the undisturbed wilderness.

                  Why Whalehead Beach:
                  We purchased 'Wish' in 2008 because we knew it could be a great place for families to vacation in the OBX. 'Wish' had never been rented before and previously was used as a private family vacation home. With all the giant homes around, there seems to be a lack of homes more suited to smaller groups that didn't want to stay with 3 or 4 other families. 'Wish' had great bones and a warm feeling when you entered the door, a wonderful open floor plan, and lots of juniper on the walls - she just needed some TLC and updating to bring her to her full potential. What really hooked us was the note on the blackboard in the kitchen - it said 'We are truly going to miss this house'. So we took it upon ourselves to create a place where others could have wonderful family vacation memories. We all have a place like that in our past - where you reminisce about your wonderful family vacations, and we truly hope we have given others a place to think about and smile from the memories.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The rooftop deck at dusk is a must. The amazing sound views reflects the colors in the sky. The huge private pool and pool area is a great way to spend the day. Or it's just a short straight walk to the beach for a day of sun and sand. The single floor living is easy for families with small children, and the loft area makes a great getaway for games, tv, crafts or reading. The house is pet-free, smoke-free, and hardwood floors prevail making it comfortable for those with allergies.
