Property description

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. For 2016, our winter guests will be the first to use a brand new hot tub on the upper deck!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Corolla, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
