  • Wonderful Property for family reunions

    "Our family of 11 arrived from all over to spend a week together. This home was perfect. It had all of the amenities that anyone could possibly need. The kitchen was well stocked with just about everything in the line of cookware and dishes. The two refrigerators in the kitchen were great. They never ran out of ice either. There was also another fridge in the lower level. Everyone in our group made comment about how comfortable the beds were. We all slept very well. We had vollleyball games using the court in the side yard as well as the bag toss game. The beach is only a short walk from the front door. The beach is private so there were no crowds at all. The water was warm and just rough enough to give all of us good exercise. In the evening when it is dark it is worth the walk back to the beach with flashlights to watch the crabs running around on the sandbar. They are small crabs and not the kind you would eat but it was fun watching them run away when the light hit them. We brought all kinds of items to go crabbing but all you really need is a string and a chicken drumstick tied to it. We caught more crabs with that then the trap and string is cheap. One of our group went fishing at the beach and caught a bucket of fish. He had a great time. Friends had told us before we went that the drinking water is not good. That is not true the water was just fine. We had use of the golf cart. That was the greatest. I would not hesitate to rent this home again. It is in a perfect location and has everything one could ask for. Sherri is a great landlord and even calls to make sure everything is OK while you are there. If we went again we would plan to arrive late in the day after 7pm. The traffic is horrible with everyone arriving at OBX around the same time. Part of our group arrived around 7:30 and had no traffic at all where we spent over 2 hours just trying to get on the island. Don't even give a second thought about renting this home. It is perfect in every way, close to the lighthouse, stores, beach and horse country."

  • Christmas in Corolla!

    "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!"

  • Wonderful OBX Vacation

    "This was our 4th time at this house & once again a great time was had by all! Since our last visit the kitchen was upgraded, a new hot tub was purchased, a swing was added to the front deck,a new ping pong table was added to the game room and bunk beds were added to the a third floor bedroom. We didn't realize the the bedroom had been changed to bunks and that is the reason I deducted a star. We had 2 adults sleeping in that room and it was a bit uncomfortable for them. We just love this home for the many reasons. The pool is spacious for large crowds. Your whole group can enjoy it at the same time. There is plenty of outside furniture and the hot tub is a plus w/ a cover that is easy to remove. The game room is perfect w/ a pool table & ping pong table and sm counter and frig. The only thing the game room needs is a sink. There is plenty of seating in the kitchen and living room and the house is so roomy that you can have privacy if you want it and be together for movies and games when you want that too.This house is perfect for large groups,family reunions and wonderful beach memories."
