Relaxing Respite

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at the Salty Pause and our 2 week stay was great from start to finish. Working with Dan and the rental agent couldn't have been easier. The house itself was clean and well appointed, especially having a great kitchen for cooking in. Lots of space both inside and outside which works well for couples as well as families. Loved the deck and pool furniture which is where we spent as much time as possible. The sound of the ocean waves was mesmerizing. Access to the beach was a snap and the pool was very refreshing. Can't wait to return in 2018.

Cant wait to return

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our dog have been coming to this area for the last several years. We've only stayed in one other home, while that was great, it didn't provide the same experience we get at the Salty Pause. This house provides us the comfort of a home away from home, with the exception that our home doesn't offer the spectacular view from the upper deck or the soothing sounds of the ocean. The house is well maintained, and every year we see the little changes that are being done to enhance the renters experience. A week after we returned home , we started already thinking about our next trip back.

I don't even want to post this review....

....because then everyone will want to rent The Salty Pause! We had a great week in this great property. Sure there are some things that can be improved (as it is not a brand new house and the bedrooms are furnished for lots of children it seems),but man it's pretty great just as it is. I want to put in a deposit for next June already!!

A Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed one of our best vacations ever at The Salty Pause! The house was perfect for 6 adults and 4 children. The house was immaculate when we arrived and it just took our breath away when we walked up the stairs and saw the view from the open kitchen/family room/dining room! We had many fun cocktail hours on the deck! The beach is beautiful and having the outdoor shower and pool in the back yard was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub, too! My 10 year old granddaughter would like us to buy The Salty Pause so we can all live there together forever!! We will definitely be back!!

Awesome Vacation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just have to say that we had an excellent time in this home! This was my first trip to the Outer Banks and it was great! The house was immaculate! We had a great time on the upper level just hanging out together and watching the ocean. The pool and hot tub were so much fun and the walk to the beach was fairly easy. We hated to leave this beautiful home. Many great memories were made on this vacation and I highly recommend this home to anyone that is looking to stay in Corolla. Thank you for a great vacation!

The Salty Pause

  • 5 of 5

The Salty Pause was a wonderful vacation rental unit. The house was very clean, and appointed with every possible amenity. The location to the beach was very convenient. The outdoor shower was great especially after relaxing in the hot tub and cool pool!

The location to the grocery store and other shopping was nice and close.

Mattresses on each of the beds could have been newer/more comfortable and all the pillows needed replacement, but we overlooked this one flaw.

I would highly recommend this rental unit :)
