  • Fantastic House!!!

    "My family, friends and I stayed at "Reel Life" for a week in May. Some coming from Texas, New Hampshire, Virginia and Florida. We could not have chosen a better house or location for our reunion!! Our ages ranged from 11 months to 58 years - and EVERYONE RAVED about Reel Life!! The house is so spacious, clean, well appointed - pictures do not reflect what a truly great house this is! Something for everyone to do - a glass of wine on the deck with the kids playing in the pool - a friendly game of pool - surf fishing right in front of the house! Kitchen was awesome!! Management was warm and welcoming. Don't hesitate to book this house!!"

  • Kayla

    "We go to the OBX every year. This house was perfect for our family of three but could easily accommodate a larger family. My son loved the ping pong table and fuse ball games. It is very roomy and bright. The backyard is also a plus if you want some sun and not much sand. It is centrally located to all restaurants. Matt was very nice and quick to reply to any of my emails or phone calls. I would recommend this house to anyone."

  • Green Wave is Great!

    "This house is ideal for large groups vacationing together. We had 3 families (with a total of 14 people) spend a week together here and never felt crowded even when we all ate together (the dining table is HUGE!). The house was immaculate and well furnished. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. We loved the pool, hot tub and attractive outside bar. The proximity to the beach was a great draw. We liked that the house was at the end of the road and the kids could ride bikes safely without lots of through traffic. We also liked being within walking distance to shops and donuts!"

  • Fun cottage with loads of goodies!

    "Bikes, horseshoes, tiki bar with mini frig, hot tub, gas grill, all the beach necessities, handsome decorating, rooftop patio and did we mention the pool?? We've stayed in Corolla for the past 20 years and this is the first time we've enjoyed the backyard amenities (pool and several picnic tables with umbrellas even) and it'll be a must have moving forward. Easy to check in, wonderful/engaged owners (thank you Julie & Dennis), and the serenity of a private backyard with birds to sing to you in the morning and frogs to serenade you in evening. Easy boardwalk entrance to beach too. Check it out - you'll think you were in Pottery Barn with the snappy interior!"
