Owner response: Dear Koval Family, We are so happy that you thoroughly enjoyed your time at the beach and Carolina Dreamin'. That is exactly the way we want people to feel when they come to the beach and stay in our place. We try to make it homelike and warm and inviting to all of our guests, including pets. Thank you for your wonderful comments regarding your stay. We certainly welcome you back again next summer! Best wishes, Dick & Dove Barton Katherine Finnigan owners
Easy Beach Access
Easy Beach Access
Absolutely wonderful beach views and easy, easy beach access. Our dogs felt at home and loved being able to go to the beach at any time with us. Since it was early in the season the weather was very suitable for them to stay with us on the beach flying kites and people-watching for long periods of time. I appreciated the extra information Dove sent us. It helped with packing and locating the house when first arriving. LOVED the area. Everything you need; shopping, groceries, dining, and historic Corolla is less than 5 minutes away! Wonderful place!

First time in the OBX-absolutely perfect!
First time in the OBX-absolutely perfect!
My husband, myself and our 2 children (11 & 8) stayed here recently. We have never been to the OBX and had no idea what to expect, we have never "rented" a place on VRBO.com either. We were wonderfully surprised. The townhome was perfect for us, the townhome is dog friendly, but unfortunately once our van was packed, we didn't have enough room for our dog!!! There was plenty of room in the townhome and all the ammenities we could need, we didn't swim in the pool, the temp outside and pool temp was too chilly, but the very short walk to the ocean was all we wanted anyway. Only had one complaint with the carpet smelling like dog urine in the loft, but there were 3 other bedrooms, so the children slept in one of those instead. I emailed the owner Dove immediately and she responded promptly, we could have had the carpets cleaned while we were there, but since it was such a short stay and we had the other bedrooms we were ok. Dove was amazing to work with, answered all e-mails promptly, sent a lovely map of the area, great directions, just a pleasure to work with. We have officially become fans of the OBX and will be back again in 2 years hopefully at this same property ;) Thanks Dove for providing a great place for our first family vacation!

We had a wonderful time at this beautifully decorated townhome in Ocean Sands! It was wonderful to be so close to the beach! My husband, daughter, myself and our dog would love to vacation here again! *We had hoped to vacation this summer 2012 - but waited too long to book, no weeks left for us. :(

Owner response: Caroline- We do hope you can stay with us again. We do get quite a few early, Jan or Feb. bookings. Please visit VRBO web page for updates on Carolina Dreamin.
The townhouse location was perfect. So close to the beach, what we always wanted. We are a single family not renting with other families, so this was an execellent price for us. The doggie enjoyed the porch. She would sun herself and watch the people walking to the beach. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is nicely remolded. Kitchen is well stocked. Bathrooms are roomy. It was good to have room in both bathrooms with 2 teenage girls. Dealing directly with the owner,( who I would like to say was so on the ball, directions, booking, I never had such wonderful service with any realtor) made it so easy for us. I highly recomend Carolina Dreaming.

We stayed at Carolina Dreamin' the week of June 19th, 2011 with another couple and kiddies. We had so much fun with our children at the (pool right behind the townhome)...so convenient for quick cool offs! The beach was just a minute walk. The north/northeast facing deck was very relaxing in the morning and evening with nice views of the ocean. Kid friendly being so close to pool and beach along with hi chair, baby gate and pack n play. Good value for great fun!!!

A great place to stay
A great place to stay
We are regulars at the Outer bank beaches, but this was our first time in Corolla. Carolina Dreamin is a very conveniently located house, and was exactly what we were looking. We were not disappointed; the house is very well equipped, is clean and comfortable. It has an excellent view of the ocean from the balcony. If you are looking for a place a few steps from the pool and two minute-walk to the beach this is the place to choose. Groceries are just across the street, and that is a plus.

Great rental house!
Great rental house!
My husband, daughter, and I had never been to the Outer Banks, and we were looking for something close to the beach and affordable for our small family. Carolina Dreamin' was perfect! It was easy to walk to the beach with our toddler and we enjoyed grilling and hanging out at the house, too. The house was clean and comfortable, and the owners responded quickly during the planning process when we inquired about different aspects of the property.

We had an awsome week. The location is amazing and such a very short distance to the beach. This was perfect for us taking 3 kids to the beach every day. The pool is a wonderful addition to the stay as well.

About the owner: Welcome to Carolina Dreamin' We are Dick and Dove Barton. Our townhouse is named Carolina Dreamin because it always was a dream to have a cottage on the Outer Banks or OBX as we call it. In 2001 that dream came true. But that was only the beginning. Our townhouse need a little TLC since it had not been updated since 1969. We set about renovating and updating. It has been a labor of love and we have tried to renovate and decorate with needs of our guests in mind.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Sands, Section F:
The beauty and serenity of the wide sandy beaches of Corolla first attracted us to the area. The friendliness of everyone we met encouraged us to stay. The ease of reaching a beautiful beach. We live on the VA peninsula only 2 1/2 hrs away. The uniqueness of the historic Currituck Lighthouse and the Wild Mustangs of the Outer Banks. When we first came in 2001 you could see the Mustangs, the symbol of the Outer Banks, on the dunes and beaches of Ocean Sands. They can now be seen on one of the Wild Mustang tours. They have been relocated for their own protection to the Wild Horse Sanctuary (in the 4 wheel drive area) to the North of Corolla
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
You'll find our townhouse is an easy walk to the beach. You can hear the surf from our deck or let it lull you to sleep at night, without the oceanfront prices. A community pool just outside your door (about 15 ft.) gives you the amenity of pool without the price. We are hands on owners who come down often to check things out. We want our guests to have a home away from home that they want to come to again and again. We vacation here too and our family has made many happy memories here. We hope you do too.
