About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

What do you look for in an ideal vacation spot?

A lovely home, tastefully decorated with upscale furnishings?

A well-equipped home, stocked with your needs in mind?

A family-friendly home, supplied for fun indoors & out?

A centrally-located home, near the beach, shops, restaurants, historic & natural attractions?

You've found it! Let yourself be Swept Away by this terrific home, loaded w/ comforts & amenities. Relax on 2 floors of wrap-around decking, including 2nd level porch swing and top level hot tub. Lounge on Tommy Bahama furniture & beds made w/ Egyptian cotton sheets. Enjoy a quiet book or lively game in the ship's watch loft. Be surrounded by sunny skies and clear ocean views - even from inside, thanks to plentiful windows & an open floor plan.

Just a short walk to the beach - we've supplied a beach cart, chairs, boogie boards & sand toys. At Monteray Shores Clubhouse enjoy the pool, playground, tennis courts, bike & kayak rental, sound fishing/crabbing off the pier, fitness center & kids' activities. We're just steps away from some of the Outer Banks' finest shops & restaurants. You'll love it here!

Added Bonus: We offer Early Arrival at no additional cost! This is unusual for the northern beaches, where almost every other home has a 4pm check-in. There is one main road in and out of the area -- as it gets closer to that 4pm arrival, all that traffic can really back up. Our earlier check-in allows you to beat most of the traffic crossing onto the island and up the coast.

We hope you will enjoy this extra benefit : )

Updates: We've owned this home since 2008 and every year we make repairs, upgrades and additions to what we offer. A few major changes recently include: in 2014 we had the entire exterior of the house painted, added flat-screen tv's in the living area and master bedrooms, and upgraded the entry with "wood" tile flooring. In 2015, we replaced all carpeting throughout the house, added a new washer & dryer and replaced the upper floor HVAC unit.

Why Beth chose Corolla

We love Corolla and have vacationed in this area since 1996. Corolla beaches offer a quiet beauty that we have not seen in many other places. The beach is small, but so is the community, so it never seems too crowded & you’re always near the water.

The Monteray Shores community has so much to offer and our guests receive complimentary access to the Clubhouse Fitness Center, large pool plus kiddie pool, sound-front Sunset Pier, tennis courts, terrific playgrounds and more.

We really feel that our house is perfectly located. Only a short, 8-10 min walk to the beach and since we are on a higher elevation than homes closer to the water, we have wonderful ocean views. Being at the southern end of Monteray Shores, we are super close to many shops & amazing restaurants. Teens also appreciate being able to walk on their own to Dairy Queen or mini-golf.

What makes this house unique

Our home has a rock & roll history! It was formerly owned by Dave Grohl - yes, THAT Dave Grohl - and even though we've never met him : ( we like to wonder who may have visited here over the years!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“With a young family, kids ages 7, 6, 3 & 1, your home was perfect! Plenty of room, each to have his or her own space. Very comfortable, relaxing, especially loved the wrap around decks & wide open living space.” Sarah K, Wichita KS; “Your home is beautiful and we had a wonderful, relaxing vacation.” ~ Janet V, Newark DE

This house is Epic!!!

  • 5 of 5

I’d like to first off say the owner of this house is awesome! Him and his wife have put some hard work into this house to make sure their guest are comfortable and happy here. There is tasteful decor, we really love the two master suites, comfortable beds (which can be extremely hard to find at homeaway rentals) stocked kitchen, kid ready, spacious for our traveling group, awesome hot tub, close to everything you need in Corolla! Overall, we are very happy here and appreciate greatly the opportunity to stay here.

On a side note: I’d just like to say.. my family followed the Ashely P. girl with the one star review left on March 5th 2018. Well... when we were on the way down we were informed house keeping was going to need some extra time to get things ready for us.. because this Ashley girls group, not only stole bedding, sheets, pillows from the couch, burnt holes in the comforter and then stained another comforter but left cigarette butts on the deck, and we found marijuana on the rim of the hot tub along with spots where you can tell the cigarettes were “put out” on the hot tub and something had to have been spilt in the water because it was very off colored and did not look appealing. I contacted the owner and he sent the spa people out the very next morning and it was drained, cleaned and refilled.

These folks were a disgrace to this house and that’s so unfortunate, especially when the owners are so nice and responsive, and offering their home to people to enjoy.

I hope whoever is reading these reviews see that they have 4-5 stars across the board... and that this one group of people are just making up lies. There is no mold here, and maybe if this Ashely girl would have realized there is a thermostat on each floor, she could have cut off the AC and turned on the heat. Duh. 🙄? Everything in this house works as it should and if there is any issues at all like I said the owners are on top of it.

We love this house and again appreciate the opportunity to stay here!!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Had a great trip. Never been to Corolla this time of the year but will be back to stay at this beautiful home. Very clean, lots of room for everyone. Great location to eating. Few blocks to the beautiful beaches. Love the outside grilling area and picnic table. 5 mins to the 4x4 area to see the wild horses. We rented a jeep and spent lots of time out driving on the beaches. Did some cooking inside the large kitchen, which had everything we needed to cook. We will be back, thanks for great memories.

We just returned home from spending a week here. Another couple joined us there. We all loved the house, clean, spacious, bright and cheery. It is conveniently located, with fast and easy access to the beach, clubhouse, restaurants and shopping. The bedrooms were roomy, the beds very comfortable. We really enjoyed the hot tub, and relaxing on the deck. We used all of the appliances without any problem ,just can't imagine what a previous reviewer is talking about. We recommend this lovely home without any reservation!

Wonderful Beach Home, Fantastic Owners

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing week at Swept Away in Corolla, NC. The house was tastefully decorated, very clean, and well-stocked. The layout was open and spacious so that we never felt cramped, even with 5 kids underfoot. It was centrally located to both the beach, shopping, and the clubhouse. And unlike the previous reviewer, we had absolutely no trouble with any of the appliances. Most importantly, the owners were extremely helpful and generous. It was a pleasure to rent from them and I would highly recommend this beach house.
