"If you're looking for quiet and solitude Christmas in Corolla is the answer! Smileaway is tucked in among other homes and is only an enjoyable walk to the beach. Smileaway is packed with just about everything you need to settle in and enjoy making family memories with. After all my kids and their kids showed up we proceeded to enjoy cooking, playing games, ping pong and pool challenges, and enjoying soaking in the hot tub as well as long walks on the beach, flying kites, bike riding, and some sight seeing and hiking at nearby attractions! Thanks Smileaway!"

"I enjoyed my stay at Linda's condo in Cape Hatteras. The property is well equipped and has a great view out to the sound. I was lucky enough to be staying at a time when few other vacationers frequent the island, so the complex was virtually empty and therefore very quiet (which I personally appreciated). In high season when travelers flock to the cape, I imagine the situation would be very different. Two drawbacks to mention about the condo are 1) there is no oven 2) the view of the sound is from the bedroom (the main living area looks out to the hallway). Despite these minor quibbles, I enjoyed my time on the island and think the property is a great value for the area and location; I recommend overall for those looking to getaway to one of the most scenically beautiful regions on the eastern seaboard."

"What a perfect nest and tranquil paradise. Everything was great, including the
weather. Can't wait to return. The only suggestion I'd like to make is adding screens
to the windows to allow for fresh air flow in temperate weather. This has been noted
by the owners/managers in previous reviews. cheers."

"1/2 the money of oceanfront across the street from private access. Great views, contemporary and bright inside, working central air, convenient outdoor shower so you don't track sand into the house. This is important since this is a 'self-clean' house, and you want to keep the mess to a minimum so you don't spend your whole last morning cleaning. Personally I would have preferred to pay for a cleaning service, but it is made completely clear that you're on your own. Accomodating & friendly owner-operators, you don't have to go to some manager's office during office hours to get keys. Sunday-to-Sunday avoids the traffic on Saturday turn day (though even the Saturday traffic wasn't as bad as expected).
As noted, house is bright and modern inside, you can find wear if you look with some of the personal property but you've got what you need and whatever else you get from K-Mart walking distance away. The house is really at a perfect standard for a beach house, you don't have to wear white gloves. Since the public beach access is some ways down, this stretch of beach is not very crowded and there are no condos, hotels, or apartments right here. Pretty much all the surrounding houses are seasonal rentals, too, so the beach is populated by other families on vacation - really quite pleasant. As is typical, you do not have access to the garage but there is covered parking for 2 cars plus the driveway.
So no complaints and we'll certainly look this place up the next time we decide to drive cross-country. Thanks."
