"I was looking for a vacation spot for my family to enjoy spending time together. I found "A Stone's Throw" and I am hooked! We love the privacy, but also love the short walk to the beach & the sound! Let's face it, the sunrise & sunset over the water is calling to all of us! One of my favorite sites is watching the pelicans fly in formation over the ocean! I love sharing a respect for nature with my children & grandchildren! The birds, crabs, and wild horses are all around the area. We even saw a deer in the woods next to the house. The house is amazing & perfect for our family. The top level has a kitchen built to accommodate a big family. We had 11 & could have easily fit more around the table & counter. The sitting room on the top floor was spacious. We loved the top deck because it was safe for the baby to toddle around & perfect for the big & small children to blow bubbles. This level also has a master bedroom with a wonderful bathroom complete with a jacuzzi tub! The king sized bed was perfect for a 3 year old, a 2 year old, & a 1 year old to have a dance party on when a storm came and they couldn't play outside! The middle floor has a comfy sitting room & my husband's beer fridge. We can also squeeze a gallon of juice in there for the babies staying on that level. Three nice bedrooms are on this level & (drum roll please) another jacuzzi tub! One bedroom has it's own private bathroom! The deck on this level holds the glorious hot tub! This deck, unlike the top deck, has stairs to the ground! We used baby gates to keep the kids & dogs in! The bottom floor has a king bed & bunks & another full bathroom. Guess what, another sitting room! I loved being able to just pull the car under the carport & just unloading into the house without dealing with the steps after driving all day! We still were able to enjoy the pool in September. The kids found the toys & had fun playing & learning to swim. We found our paradise on earth & will be returning for at least 2 weeks every year! As we have gotten older, we have found that it gives us more time to relax before facing the drive home. Matt & Sue are the best at making the trip feel heavenly. If you need anything, they are a phone call away. I always spoke with Susan & she will bend over backwards to make your stay wonderful! The deposit is returned quickly & fairly. It is wonderful to meet people who are kind & honest! I feel a friendship has developed between us because of the kindness in their heart! Blessings"

The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
My husband and I stayed here with our four kids ranging in ages from one year old to twelve years old. The location was great. It was about two blocks away from a beautiful beach. Being in the Corolla Light resort was also great because it gave us access to the Sports Center which included an indoor pool (which was fabulous on the colder days!). The unit itself was clean and updated. There was plenty of room for our party of seven people. There is a big room downstairs with two bunk beds! Perfect for our kids! The owners had also stocked things very well. It was odd to have to bring our own towels and paper products, but not a huge deal. The rental company was good for the most part. However, I called the day before check in to see if there were baby items in the unit. We were hoping not to have to bring a port a crib, booster seat, and stroller. The agent didn't know what was in the unit and couldn't be bothered to make a quick phone call to find out. So, she said since nothing was guaranteed to be there we should assume it wasn't. Well, all of those things were provided by the owner. So, I wasted a ton of space in our car bringing them! I was NOT pleased. We also had some unpleasant exchanges with that same agent in the beginning when we arrived and one of the AC units was not working. She was more concerned with not inconveniencing the repair person than her renters. They did ultimately have the unit replaced during our stay though, and everyone else we worked with was very kind and understanding. The television was large, but a bit confusing to operate (and my husband is super tech savy). But really, the unit definitely met expectations. Corolla was a nice, quiet place to stay. We definitely enjoyed our stay."

"We love Blue Haven so much, that we visit at least twice a year! The amenities are abundant from the well appointed kitchen, to the excellent decor. The Sound provides all the restful time anyone needs and as the reminders tell us throughout the house, relax, relax, relax! We did!"

"Everything from the day we contacted Monique, until HER thank you note to us following our stay, was absolutely TOP NOTCH! House is perfect from top to bottom! The attention to detail was outstanding and everything you could possibly have needed was there and then some! It was our first trip to the OBX and we loved every minute! Corolla is much more laid back and less crowded than the southern end and all Monique's recommendations were spot-on! The private pool was a life saver as the days were quite warm and humid, so floating on BRAND NEW supplied floats was the perfect way to stay cool! We also put to good use the supplied baby gates and highchair with our 'on the go' 2 yr old grandson, who is now a little water rat, thanks to the pool as well! I just can't say enough about how wonderful this place and Monique is! We will NEVER stay anywhere else when heading back to the OBX and neither should you! OUTSTANDING experience!"
