Beautiful family-oriented beach house
"After many years of vacationing in OBX, this is the most well-appointed beach house we have stayed in. Very tasteful, comfortable furnishings and a well-stocked kitchen. This is also a toddler-friendly beach house. We traveled with another family and had 19mo and 15mo children with us. The house is outfitted with (older style) baby gates and one pack n play. Everyone enjoyed the large decks and the pool. The short walk to the beach was great with little ones. We did notice that the bunk room got warm and stuffy with the door closed, but discovered a fan in the closet after the first night, which helped the room to feel more comfortable at night. The only drawback in location is that it takes 30+ minutes to get to Duck and the major kid attractions to the south (aquarium, etc.). But if you're seeking a quieter place to stay and don't mind a bit of a drive, this is a terrific house."

"I rented this fantastic home so that my extended family could celebrate the many "holidays" that occur during the month of May. Our vacation started on Mothers' Day and was soon followed by my mom's 74th birthday. My parents' 50th anniversary and my father's birthday are May 22nd and May 25th respectively.
Our group included family members from Georgia, NC (Goldsboro), DC and Maryland. I arrived with my mother, my 92-year-old grandmother, and two 2.5-year-olds (grandniece and granddaughter). My father, uncle, 3 brothers, sister, sister-in-law, 3 additional nieces and a nephew (all pre-teen), and an older family friend arrived later in the week.
The house was perfect for our group. Each bedroom having a private bath was awesome! The amenities were great, from the pool table to the hammock on the deck to the big-screen TVs. The hot tub, pool and grills were all given proper workouts. The stairs and the mini-sized grills were a little challenging - but any complaints were tempered by the excellence of everything else. Having two refrigerators was extremely helpful.
Getting to the beach from the house was a short walk and well worth it. The nearby shopping options came in very handy considering our frequent trips. I will (and already have) recommend this property and Elan Vacations to everyone I know. Thank you so much for the role you played in making wonderful memories for my family."

"This townhouse in Corolla Light was lovely and exactly as described. I was a little hesitant about staying in a townhouse, worried that it would be too small for our group of 7. However, it was spacious and well-designed, and never felt cramped. The neighborhood environment was great for the older children (ages 13 & 11), allowing them to have some freedom to walk to the pool and beach themselves. It is a very clean, safe neighborhood environment, with many different activities and shopping within walking distance.
Jay, the owner, could not have been kinder or more accessible. He has done a great job of maintaining the home, and puts a lot of effort into making it a great vacation spot. I would definitely return to this home in the future."
