About Mr. Smith

We are a family of 4, myself Clell, Carol my wife, Ian our son and Kendall our daughter. I am self employed and in the furniture and home decor industry, Carol is an executive IT consultant at Infrastructure Technology her own firm. We reside in Virginia Beach, two hours from Blue Haven and love the Outer Banks, surfing, being on the beach and in the water. I have been coming to this part of the North Banks since 74 (before there was as road or even any homes in Corolla) and never get tired of the place. Our daughter is a senior at Virginia Tech and our son Ian lives with us.

Mr. Smith purchased this house in 2004

Why Mr. Smith chose Corolla Light

Our home is located in one of the most unique places on the East Coast! We are next to the Currituck Sound where you can see some of the most amazing sunsets anywhere and within a short walk or bike ride you can be at the Ocean, an Historic Hunt Club (the Whalehead Club), Currituck Lighthouse, Historic Corolla Village, shops & restaurants. Also, the sound-front is community property in our neighborhood with almost 2 miles of waterfront to enjoy, we have a great Oceanfront Pool complex with Life Guarded beaches (in season), tennis courts and a great indoor sports complex with Weight and Carido rooms. And best of all Highway 12 ends about 1.5 miles north of our home where you can drive on the beach and see wild ponies!! (proper 4 wheel drive vehicles only)

What makes this house unique

We are always working to improve and investing in Blue Haven to make it a great vacation home! It is very well equipped, having visited the OBX for many years before buying our home we have tried to think of everything you will want, plus we use the house ourselves in the off season so we have put more into it than the average rental home.. The 3 King Beds are very comfortable (new December 2017) and all furniture very nice. The Theater is wonderful and a great place to catch up on movies plus there is the 50' Smart TV in the great room upstairs and the gourmet equipped Kitchen. Then there is a great hot tub for 6 that you will want to spend time in daily! One of the best things of all is to sit in the evenings or early mornings on the outside patio under the live oaks and enjoy the sound views and nature with a cocktail or cup of coffee. Take advantage of the community rec center for a workout or take a bike ride or use our Kayaks to enjoy the sound. The list goes on and on so come see for yourself!

Beautiful home that has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my family’s vacation; we had 7 adults and 4 children (ages 2-12). We used the properies bikes for the very short ride to the beach that also has multiple pools (the kids pool was a huge hit! There is so much to do and the property is well maintained and well equipped with everything you need for an awesome vacation along with being close to everything! We enjoyed rocking in the chairs on the deck and seeing the sound, laying on the hammock, rode bikes in the cul-de-sac, and even played in the small side yard while grilling. Movie night on the big screen was a hit! Clell, the owner, was easily accessible and ensured we had a wonderful stay! Would definitely stay here again!

Incredible with lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week with our group of 12 and thee generations. We hit up the beach, pool, kayaks in the sound, bikes, tennis, shuffleboard, walks along the sound, movies in the downstairs theater, hot tub time, great meals cooked in the very nice and well equipped kitchen. Even drove down to the end of the road and onto the sand to find the ponies. Overall a great family place if you are looking for lots of activities that are all free! We aren't really the shopping, mini golf, eating out every night crowd so we loved the laid back atmosphere of Corolla and the house exceeded all our expectations. Thanks for a great week!
