Great location!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home just down the road (about 100 yards) from beach access. We also loved the 3rd floor deck - our evenings were spent "in the trees". Larger than pictures indicate. Need to improve internet service so that you do not have to logon each time it is used. Recommended!

Most Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Life's A Beach and cannot wait to return. The owners are the friendliest we have found in all of our years vacationing on the Outer Banks. They truly care about their guests. The house is in great condition and is well furnished. The walk to the beach is close and the yard has plenty to do. We hope to return very soon!

Our First Visit!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming and practical beach home! We have rented beach homes for many years and could not have been more pleased with this one! It was our first time to the Outer Banks and we wanted BEACH LOCATION at a reasonable price for our "fact finding" first visit! You cant get much better than this! For price and location you aren't going to find any better! The owner called us our third day there to make sure we were comfortable and found everything suitable upon arrival. He gave us many tips on food and shopping! Just delightful people! However, be advised this is NOT a direct rental from owner as I am used to dealing with on VRBO. You do deal with a realty company. But they also could not have been nicer!

We have already put our deposit down for next June! Thanks so much!

The beaches of Corolla have been cited as some of the best undiscovered beaches! This family-friendly, relaxed town has something to offer everyone. Some of the attractions Corolla is known for are the Currituck Lighthouse (climb to the top for a bird's eye view of Corolla), the historic Whalehead Club which is open for tours and offers a taste of historic Corolla, unique shopping at area boutiques, a movie theater, 2 grocery stores, Rees Jones designed golf course and a short drive to the secluded, remote 4x4 beaches where the wild mustangs still roam free. Corolla is located at the very northern end of North Carolina's Outer Banks and is a 15 minute ride from the town of Duck, 45 minutes to Nags Head and about an hour from Manteo on Roanoke Island.
