"My family has been coming to the Whalehead Beach area in Corolla for more than 30 years, and I can't remember a nicer house than this one. The beds were unbelievably comfortable! The layout is thoughtful, the furnishings are tasteful and the appliances are new and in perfect working order. Everything worked! This house has the hallmark of owners who care and are involved in the beach house, and that has obviously made the house as appealing as it is. I am an early riser and especially liked taking one of the grandchidren on a morning walk to the Food Lion or one of the coffee shops around the corner: donuts for the kids, coffee for grandpa."

I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Great house. Lots of room for 9 adults and 7 kids. Loved the porches, pool, and hottub. Also liked the neighborhood for biking. Used the nearby community pool too; it was often empty. Played tennis several times and used the basketball court. Biked to the beach or walked. Saw the wild horses. Shopping was close. Great place for a family gettogether."

"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!"

"The house was close to the beach but not right on the beach. There was enough space to sleep 10-12 people which is nice. The local restaurants were easy to access etc. Overall a good time and good price."
