  • Perfect home, Perfect location

    "This was our third year visiting Ocean's End. As the two previous years we had a wonderful and relaxing time. The house its self is perfect, the lay out of the home is excellent, and the recent renovations to the home show the owners pride and care for their home. If you're looking for an amazing, relaxing get away from a hectic schedule, look no further rest assure you'll find it here at Ocean's End. I also would like to say that the property managers and the owners of this home are very kind and accommodating, which makes it that much better. Thanks Ocean End for another AMAZING vacation!"

  • Stop searching for other rental, Paradise is here!

    "We had a trip around the east coast coming from Germany and have searched for a outstanding home to rest at the end of 3 weeks around the US. I have compared a lot but this house seems to be a class of its own at OBX. Location, pricacy and a full appointed home. We have found our paradise at Swan Beach. The owner is such a courteous host. He answered within a day on every question I had and provided us with a lot of information upfront. Delightful. We had long summer walks around the Corolla beach area and have seen a lot of houses but nothing compares to this. Stay here! No regrets! Und für Besucher aus Deutschland. Dieses Haus ist einfach das Beste was man sich vorstellen kann. Wer darüber nachdenkt seinen Urlaub auf den Outer Banks zu verbringen, sollte sich das nicht entgehen lassen. Das Haus ist für einen Strandurlaub einfach perfekt. Der Besitzer ist jederzeit per email oder Telefon erreichbar und gibt sich viel Mühe. Ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen, wir haben wirklich eine tolle Zeit dort verbracht."

  • Quiet and Clean

    "We've been vacationing at the beach for decades and this beach home has proven to be one of the most satisfying we've encountered. It's clean, just the right size with all amenities you could wish for. It has large decks providing incredible views and is in a quiet and relaxing section of Corova that's close to the beach but without many neighbors. This home is an all around great beach house that allowed us to thoroughly enjoy a much needed vacation."

  • The perfect escape!!!

    "I can not say enough good things about this Cottage. The moment we arrived I felt all the stress of my busy life disappear. The cottage is so beautiful, the attention to detail is seen everywhere. The boys loved the turtle bedroom they stayed in. My parents enjoyed the master on the top floor, since they are early risers it was nice for them to be able to walk around the kitchen and living room with out waking the rest of us downstairs. The decks gave you great views so don't let the distance from the beach fool you it is not far at all. It also was very easy to find just one block down from the beach. After spending the days at the beach we would shower in the very nice and enclosed outdoor shower and jump right into the pool and relax in the hot tub. I traveled with my husband ,two boys and my parents so there was plenty of room in fact one of the bedrooms we never used. The location is perfect very close to the beach and the firehouse(which has a little shop with ice, ice cream t-shirts. the boys loved going there to get ice cream). The cottage has everything I would need at home to cook and bbq, games, books, and WIFI. We rarely found ourselves using the tv because there is so much to do and look at. The bonus of this Cottage is seeing the wild horses, they came every day into the yard. The boys named them and every morning they would look for them. This was such a great experience to get to be so close to the horse. I was concerned about the tour jeeps driving around with all the people but we rarely saw them driving around the home so that was great. So are you looking for a great house that is close to the beach, with a pool and hot tub, traveling with less then 10 people, well maintained and very clean? Then this house is perfect for you. It was a home away from home for us, the boys wanted to stay for the whole summer. We will be planning another stay soon. The owner was very helpful and responded quickly to emails I sent. I never write reviews but this is truly a great find and you won't be disappointed!!!"
