Loved Sea Forever!
"We came away saying that this was the best beach house ever! It had one more bedroom than the house we had rented for the past three years, but there were SO many other differences that made this house not just bigger, but so much better. The supply of equipment inside and out is amazing. The owners have done so so much to make renters have a great vacation. I can't say enough about how impressed we were to find so many things that we've had to bring, rent, buy, or do without in the past--bicycles, beach towels, cooking equipment. For a small example, there was an herb I needed but had forgotten to purchase in the spice rack! For a big example, people in our group said: "It was so nice to have beach chairs for everyone this year." "It was great to have so much comfortable furniture around the pool." "And there were so many toys for the [wonderfully large] pool." We definitely plan to go back to this house!"

The Salty Dog is very relaxing and comfortable - bright and sunny
"This house has been perfect for us over the years. We have stayed here before and the vibe of this house is so wonderful. It is comfortable, clean, well stocked and well maintained. The pool was sparkling but the best is the porch swing on the second level deck where you can read, relax and just unwind. The corner lot was very convenient to the beach access which was a short walk from the house. You can bike to the Food Lion or to the Whalehead Club. We love this house because it is exactly what a beach house should be- comfortable and relaxing- not so fancy that you will worry about spills but bright, sunny and warm. We keep coming back because of the perfect location, the porch swing and the happy feeling we have staying here and....... because our dogs love it! (p.s. the stairs will keep you in shape!)"

"This house was perfect for our multi family vacation. The rental company (Elan Vacations) was very helpful and we were able to rent a gas grill as well as a stroller. Its pretty close to the beach (maybe a 10 minute walk) and the pool was awesome. Its real close to shopping and dining places, but once the sun sets its a quite place."

"We have used VRBO for family vacations for 6 vacations. We had a fantastic time at Bikini Bottom. 8 Adults, 4 Children (7 to 3). House was plenty big and very well maintained. Amenities were great. Everyone loved the private pool and the closeness to the beach. The beach access walkways were great. Kitchen and deck space were perfect. The outdoor volleyball net came in handy for badminton. Plenty of things for the kids to do including a whole cabinet of games. In terms of the area, Corolla was perfect. The house is very close to local grocery stores, mini golf, shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed dinner at the Oceanfront Grille and Big Buck's Homemade Ice Cream Shop won the award for best ice cream parlor of the week! Tom (owner) and the local realty company were always helpful and quick with replies. First time in 6 VRBO rentals in which the owner left us gift cerftificates for the local bagel shop, fresh made donuts shop and fresh coffee beans. 5 star vacation and would definitely recommend to others and plan a return visit!"
