Outer Banks Adventure
"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!"

"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."

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!)"

"We had such a fantastic vacation over Labor Day. I searched for 3 months before finding this house. We only wanted to stay for the long weekend and every other house required a full week and wouldn't let us know if we could have it until a week before the trip. I couldn't rely on that. Sharon was awesome getting us booked and letting us know exactly what we needed to bring. We had 7 couples and two babies stay. We're in a bible study group and we're together each week, but this was our first time on a trip together. It really was the best weekend ever! The girls enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and sitting in the hottub at night. The guys were in the game room a lot, playing pool and ping pong. We all enjoyed the pool and great deal and spent days at the beach. The rooms were great and everyone had their own space. I'm a book nerd and I was able to read my book in little nooks throughout the house while still feeling part of the group. I especially enjoyed the large table in the kitchen where we could all eat together for each meal. It was a great weekend! We're already planning how we can get back!"
