Spacious Family Friendly Home Close to it ALL!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED staying at this house during our recent beach vacation! The house was perfect for our family of 5, offering plenty of space, comfortable beds, multiple dishwashers, and many more amenities that made travel with family a breeze. The house was clean and well-maintained both inside and out, and the pool and hot tub were immaculate. The house is a short walk to the beach, surrounded by paths and easily accessible streets to guide you right to the sand! The general location of the house just doesn't get any better...the house is located close to all the best shopping and restaurants little Corolla has to offer! You can walk or ride your beach cruiser to the closest cafe, grocery store, surf shop, etc in no time at all. It's also a short distance to Corolla's historic district, and wild horse beaches. The owner was professional and truly wonderful to work with. She responded promptly to our inquiry, our questions, and made contract signing and payment submissions a breeze. We also loved that she welcomes fur babies into the property, and upon her approval, we were able to bring our four legged family members to play along with us in the sand. We've already booked the house again for next year, and cannot wait to come back!

Kings Castle

  • 5 of 5

Great Location, close to grocery stores and shopping, easy walk to beach. Pool was clean and fun. The hottub was good until it stopped working and we left messages for the appropriate people, we left before knowing if that was fixed before the next family came in. Rooms all have nice flat screens. It is also pet friendly which we appreciated. We will come again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking wonderful care of our cottage, we are so happy you enjoyed your summer vacation and we can't wait to have you back! The hot tub jet motor was replaced as quickly as we were notified and the part could be received, we are so sorry for the impact of the hot tub down time during your last day of vacation, and it was back up and running within time for future guests to enjoy. Unfortunately it is never ideal to have downtime with any of our amenities, and your patience and understanding was just so greatly appreciated! Thank you again so much for choosing King's Sandcastle and we certainly look forward to taking care of you for your next OBX vacation! Thanks again, The King's

After Labor Day vacation

  • 3 of 5

Corolla and OBX are WONDERFUL after Labor Day - highly suggest! Our house was nice for our 4 adults and 2 babies. The pool was adequately sized and there were plenty of bedrooms. The walk to the beach was farther than we expected (about .25 mile). The house was cleaned however there was animal hair and crumbs everywhere. The couches were very old, slouchy and had bad stains. The pool was small with a very narrow pool deck to walk around. Not sure we will be coming back unless there are major upgrades.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in our cottage and add upgrades every year. This year we added a picnic table, park charcoal grill in addition to the large gas grill, as well as flat screen TV's in all bedrooms. We will most certainly replace our living room sofa set, and we appreciate your feedback. I have to admit though, we are somewhat puzzled by your review since I spoke directly to you mid-week of your stay and you stated you were having a wonderful week and our house was great. Additionally, there is conflicting info about our pool size, you state at the beginning of your review that it is adequate size but then at the end state it is small. I have NEVER had a complaint about our pool size as it is one of the largest permitted size pools in the Corolla and Duck areas. The distance to the beach is an easy walk, the address and google map are provided up-front and fully listed. There aren't any busy streets to walk across to go to the beach, and the beach path is located right on our cul de sac. The walk to the beach has never been an issue for any of our guests, and location is clearly shared with all of our guests. Thanks so much again for your helpful observations. As always we strive to exceed expectations, and we will work on this for sure!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Coastal Cravin!! Easy, short walk to the beach! A great size kitchen for cooking and hanging out all together. The boys played basketball everyday with the hoop right there in the driveway! Very close to Food Lion and Harris Teeter and many out fun store, restaurants and shops! We had a blast hanging out in the basement with the pool table and grill on the bottom level. Nice to have the added bonus of a large flat screen tv in every bedroom too!! Will definitely recommend to friends!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. It was nice that each party had their own floor which gave some privacy(as we had another family join us). We loved the hot tub. The house was spacious and warm and inviting. We will definitely stay here again.
