"After 16 years renting through agencies in Corolla, this was our 1st time going through VRBO. I was a little concerned about what to expect, but Sea Forever was a home run and a great experience. First off, the property is in a great location, right on the corner with a short walk to beach access. Its also a short walk or bike ride to the stores, shops, etc. The grounds and landscaping are beautiful, the pool is large and has plenty of seating (and toys, floats, etc. if you have younger kids) and we split evenings between sitting on the top floor deck which has a great 180 degree view of the community & ocean or gathering around the fire pit which has lots of seating - both featured a great breeze given that the home is on an elevated lot.
A key feature of this home, which clearly separated it from the several other large homes we've rented over the years, is all the amenities that the owners provide - both inside the home and out. We loved all the bikes and rode them a lot during our week. The beach gear was also great - plenty of light, folding beach chairs along with wagons to carry your stuff down to the beach. Our daughter loved the big collection of very nice kites, and brought a different one down to fly at the beach every day. Inside the house, the kitchen was great and very nicely laid out for a large group and FULLY stocked with everything you could need (appliances, dishes, pots/pans, utensils, etc). My wife was also impressed with the extras that we found when we arrived, like hand soaps in bathrooms, food wraps in kitchen, dish and laundry detergent, etc. Also, having 3 sets of washer/dryers meant there was never a "line" for any person/family to get their laundry done. The bedding was very high quality which is a great feature at the end of long days in the sun. Finally, the huge supply of beach towels that comes with the house is great….our group of six 18-24 year old "kids" even found a set of animal themed hoodie-towels that they adopted and used one day. Next time we will pack a lot lighter, since its hard to think of anything that we need to bring that this turnkey house doesn't have. Great vacation house, highly recommended!"
