About Jim Easterbrooks

My wife and I were both born and raised in the Northeast and we each grew up less than an hour from the shore. The shore for my wife was Atlantic City, NJ and for me Narragansett, RI. When we finally settled in VA, after my long military career, it was our dream to build a beach house. We began our search for the land in 2000 and by June of 2005 we had our completed beach home. As with every journey it was a bumpy road. In January 2001, my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time. It slowed down the dream of owning a beach home but she recovered and put the cancer behind her with the help and support of hundreds, if not thousands, of people praying for her from around the world. Being a military family we knew many people in many places that supported us with many prayers. In Feb 2005, in the middle of making preparations to take possession of our beautiful beach home in April, her cancer was back. But she was not one to be slowed down. Fighting through the nausea she continued the process of purchasing furnishings for the home. She had already been shopping for 8 months and two rooms in our home were bulging and the garage was next. As with many builders the finish date began to slip, we finally took possession on June 1. Our first renters were due in the house on July 1, 2005. We had one month to completely furnish a new house with all the extra amenities as it stands today. We are truly blessed with the best family and friends because if it was not for them we never could have finished the monumental task in 30 days. The property manager complemented us on a job well done. She had never seen a house come together so fast in the short time. That was the moment that we knew we had achieved our dream and now we share our dream home with you, if you choose to stay with us.

Jim Easterbrooks purchased this house in 2005

Why Jim Easterbrooks chose Ocean Hill

We went to the outer banks of North Carolina for the first time in 1997. We were amazed at how different the beaches are from the northern beaches and how less crowded too. We choose the Corolla area for the beautiful views, proximity to the ocean and the occasional wild horse sighting.

Relaxing summer fun place for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for two years in a row, and can't wait to return again. The house is very clean and well maintained. There is loads to do without even leaving the property, even if it's raining. Between the beach being so close, the pool, the hot tub, the pool table, there is always some way to relax and enjoy the sun. We have stayed in other properties that are old and worn out that does not make for a confortable stay. You can tell the owner of this house treats like it is there own live in home. Nice furnishings, up to date decor and the small things that really make a difference. The only thing I do not like is I HAVE TO LEAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everything you could possibly need!

  • 5 of 5

We've spent a week at Coral Reef Treat for the past three summers...It is, without doubt, the most spacious, comfortable, well-equipped, and welcoming beach home you can imagine. The owners have taken special care to provide an incredible kitchen with specially-purchased utensils, dishes, glassware, etc., so that your meal preparation and your dining experience will enhance your vacation. Everything in this home has been chosen with the utmost care---there is no junk, and no garage-sale items. King size beds in several rooms provide the utmost in comfort for the adults in your party. The kids have comfortable rooms, too! Bathrooms are spotlessly clean and plentiful. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and clean. The beach is very convenient as a five minute walk or a 30 second bike ride! I could live in this house all year round for the rest of my life!

OUTSTANDING is all aspects!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed here 2 years in a row and will return again this year. The home has EVERYTHING! and is extremely well maintained. It is obvious from the additional icemaker, wifi, pool table, foosball table and small additionals in the house that alot of planning and thought went into furnishing this large comfortable home. nice size pool and hot tub are 3 steps out the back door. The kids loved the horses on the beach that are about 2 miles up the road. Beautiful, flat, uncrowded beach was also a hit with everyone. My favorite was my morning run past the lighthouse and on the beach. I spend 200 days a year travelling and appreciate all the "creature comforts" available. Thanks and great job on the home!
