"Great time for everyone. Kids and grandkids. Plenty of room 16 people in the house and never felt cramped. Pool area was great with the spa and baby pool. Loved watching the sunrise in the morning over the ocean and sitting on the deck in the evenings listening to the waves. I would recommend to anyone as a great get away for any type of group. My family did a fishing trip. Wild horse tour, Visited the lighthouses, shopped. Most relaxing vacation I have had in years."

"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."

"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."

"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!"
