About the property

Quiet, 4 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bath home with den for kids and eagles nest for adults

Quiet and Convenient!

Beat Saturday traffic with Sunday to Sunday Rental!

With the Albemarle Sound in sight, Sound Skies is just a few steps through the pines to a quiet walk, maybe with your dog, on the waterfront path. Walk, or hop on one of our bikes, and you are soon on the beach, at one of the resort pools, or working out at the Sports Center. With room for up to 10 people, your family can finish the day enjoying the outdoor hot tub, grilling dinner on the deck, or watching the sunset over the Sound.


Whether you are new to our home or a long-time visitor, this Sound-side property is close to all Corolla has to offer:

• 20 yards from the walking path on Albemarle Sound

• 5 Blocks from the beach (Shad Street)

• .4 mi. from indoor workout facilities, tennis & swimming at the Sports Center, and chip-n-putt Golf (extra cost)

• .4 mi from outdoor Sound-side Pools

• .5 mi—by bike—to Oceanside Pools and restaurant

Walk, bike, or better yet, put your beach chairs on the back of the Resort Trolley— from Memorial Day to Labor Day—for your day in the sun. Our Trolley stop is right across the street with stops throughout Corolla Light Resort.

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

Don't let the outside fool you. The wood siding may throw you off.. The house is very very nice on the inside. My wife put it best, she felt at home. All the electronics are top notch. The beds are comfortable. Two rooms with queens and 2 rooms with 2 singles in each. Dishes, silverware, and accessories galore. Just an overall nice place. We were there during off season(early April) so I don't know how crowded Corolla gets during prime time. You are very close to lot's of places to eat. The only thing that needs work are the sliding doors to the decks, definitely not a deal breaker in the least. The owners are very nice . They want you to have a good time.

Great OBX Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This house is well appointed with all needs you could ask for! The kitchen is stocked with all the needed kitchen tools and gadgets plus more. All the bedding, linens and towels are hotel quality. The home is clean, up to date and this home does nothing but make you want to rest and relax. My family enjoyed our stay and honestly, didn't want to leave. The location is top notch and we are excited to stay again!
