Was a nice home, but needs some work
"The house keeping leaves nothing to be desired. After cleaning and changing sheets when we got there, there are a few things that need updated king mattress, pillows, pool table and cover that fits the hot tub. But we did have fun there and there was more room than the photos give it credit for, was nicely decorated, and kids loved the bunk beds against wall on second floor, the 1 st floor bunk beds need a ladder."

Family Vacation *** Even with the in-laws and out-laws ***
"My Husband and I with our 2 small children (3 & 1), Dog, both sets of in-laws and my 90 year old Grandmother stayed at your home for 2 weeks. Your home was able to accommodate all of our needs, privacy, separate spaces to unwind, a wonderful pool where my daughter learned to swim and my son got his first taste of the pool. We enjoyed our time walking the beach, playing in the sand, swimming in the pool and the wild horses. You might not think with all of these families staying in one house together would be classified as a vacation, but with what your home was able to provide for us, all family members enjoyed their time and would love to come back.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home and create fond memories."

"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!"

"House had outstanding amenities that are perfectly suited for a fun and relaxing time in OBX. The location is absolutely ideal - near the beach and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and grocery store. Plenty of outdoor living space - great views - and a turnkey experience. I plan to be back again next year!"
