The home is strategically located near the historic Currituck Club and Currituck lighthouse, old Corolla Village, the nature trails of northern Corolla, and the four wheel drive area (Wild Horses) of Carova.

Beautiful.. spacious.. clean.. 5 min to beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic.. highly recommend.. we were fortunate enough to have a family getaway for my husbands 60th birthday.. linen service was a plus.. pool was fantastic.. the walk to the beach is all decked.. about 5 min.. 4x4 beach was 5 min down the road.. plenty of parking.. bedrooms being on the lower floor was great for privacy. 3 full baths... the kitchen was great for cooking.. large table for large group eating.. plenty of space in the livingroom for family games.. all in all a great house.. the owners were nothing short of kind and helpful.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful 1st experience we had at OBX! John and Mary were quick to respond to any questions that we had.

Everything was exactly as the pictures depicted. We were able to utilize all of the at-home entertainment options-swimming, pool, hot tub, foosball, board games, horseshoes, etc.

The home is about 3 miles from the 4x4 beaches (which was amazing!) and about 2 miles from the grocery store.

Overall we had a great stay and can't wait in till next year's trip! :)

Great week of relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time relaxing at Crab a Cold One. The kids loved the pool and the walk to the beach wasn't bad. The kitchen was nice and the loft was a great place for the kids to hang out as was the game room. Thanks for a great family week

Loved the house.....the only thing was that the railing around the stair case was not to code

  • 4 of 5

and our small dog almost fell thru the railing. Would have been very dangerous for a toodler running around.

Peaceful and Private

  • 5 of 5

A very clean and comfortable home. Wonderful pool and hot tub. Plenty of room for everyone. Although there a number of stairs, after a day or two, you get use to them.

The walk to the beach is a couple of blocks away, but there is a very nice boardwalk. There are also parking lots where you can park your car (a couple of blocks away and close to the beach).

The Dillons were great to work with. I would highly recommend staying at Crab a Cold One.
