Amenities include: oceanfront gazebo, elevator, pool and kiddy pools, 2 hot tubs, more screened in covered decks then any other rentals, kayaks, surf & boogie boards, beach chairs & umbrellas, gourmet kitchen, commercial steamer & ice machines, the very best Ocean Sunrise and Sound Sunset views in the OBX, plus so much more.
BOOK EARLY FOR NEXT SEASON! Normally our rates increase 10 to 20% after January 1st. Book now for a next year Early Bird Special!
The rate you see is the full total that you pay. We do not add on another 20% of taxes and service fees like other companies.
Best of all we do a Friday to Friday week in order to save you wasted hours in the weekend traffic. The entire island (400,000+) turns over on Sat & Sun and is funneled into 2 roads. You'll coast in on Friday, do your shopping and be hanging around the pool while the other 400,000 are stuck in traffic for an extra 5 hours.
If the dates you need are booked please consider our beautiful 6 bedroom Victorian mansion in the heart of Duck village, an incredible location where you can walk to everything. The landscaping and trees are so fantastic that you feel like you are in a lovely countryside estate.

Located only 2.2 miles up the beach in the four wheel drive territory of Corolla. Yes, that means you do need a SUV 4 wheel drive or truck to drive in the 4-wheel drive area. That is why they call it the 4-wheel drive area. Some locals only have 2-wheel drive trucks but they have been driving on sand all their lives. There is nothing difficult about it as long as you let some air out of your tires. You can drive on 20 pounds of pressure all week. There is no reason to fill your air all week until you are ready to drive back home.
The local gas station/convenience store, restaurants, Whale Head Club, Corolla Light house and most of the attractions are approximately 3 to 5 miles away. Less than 10 minutes from the Food Lion shopping complex offering unlimited shopping, restaurants, bars, golf and a movie theater.

Year Purchased: 2001
About: We are definitely country people and most of the year live on a couple hundred acres in PA raising beautiful, loving Portuguese Water Dog Puppies. Our summer family vacations are sometimes at Sunnybank our unique OBX home. But we especially enjoy family trip to our Quebec Territory in Canada which is God's country. Our private lake has 88 miles of shoreline that just take your breath away.
Why Corolla, NC, USA:
We love water and the ocean so when we found Sunnybank on 3 oceanfront acres it was perfect. Lac Perdu (Lost Lake)with our ramshackle lodge and cabins in remote Quebec Canada is about as opposite as you can get from the luxury of Sunnybank's Victorian Mansion but we would be hard pressed to say which place we enjoy more.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Getting to see the wild horses right in your own yard.
