Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 very, very comfortably and privately)
A hard core beach lover, family man, sports fisherman and general outdoors enthusiast. Grew up on the south shore coastal areas of Long Island, and now a resident southern boy.
Owner purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Owner chose Ocean Sands
Having spent 8 years vacationing in commercialized and tired feeling Nags Head as well as remote and dated Buxton, discovering Corolla was love at first sight. Close enough to fine dining, supermarkets, upscale shopping, yet only 30 minutes north of the commercialized areas of Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk and Nags Head with their Home Depots and Wal-Marts. This was the ultimate convenient escape for a beach home. It offers one of the top 10 beaches on the east coast, lots of privacy and plenty of access to the finer things in life, and only 30 minutes to the commercialized areas south of here for any unusual needs that might arise. In addition, the common sight of wildlife always brings a smile to ones face. We loved our condo complex in particular because we can quickly walk to the ocean at any time of the day and it's a private posted community that restricts 'outsiders' from parking curbside thus minimizing the number of folks on the beach. We are also across the street, on the Oceanside, from the Currituck Club Golf Course, so the ability to be signing up for 'tee time' is only minutes away. Corolla is a pristine, upscale community, a haven for water sports, a reasonable drive to the off shore Gulf Stream charter fleets that provide world class fishing year round and something I love to do. Our section of Ocean Sands - Section F, is also the smallest section within the Ocean Sands Communities, only 3 parallel blocks wide and no more than about 10 homes at the furthermost point from the ocean on any block. Without any major roads to cross...this is one quiet, convenient and true escape destination. In addition, we have adjacent tennis courts to our condos, and our own pool for our condo owners and guests - in fact it is the largest pool in Section F. All I can say is, 'We love this place!'
What makes this Condo unique
This spectacular location is amazing. We are literally within a 2 minute walk from our condo door, until stepping into the Atlantic Ocean. In addition, we are in a Private Community that is posted at the entrance whihc reads, ' Entry beyond this point is limited to owners and their guests. Violators will be towed and subject to arrest for trespass'. Our amazing beach is adjacent to about a 1/4 miles of undeveloped beachfront providing us with exceptional privacy as well as an uncrowded and pristine beach, with some of the tallest beachfront dunes on the Outer-banks. The sight of osprey, deer, pelicans, dolphin and 10 minutes north of us - The Wild Mustangs of Corolla, as well as the more uncommon sightings of sea turtles, harbor seals, and whales, make this one exceptionally cool place to spend some time.

Damage and incidentals

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pelican Landing. This unit has plenty of space, and a great deck to sit on in the morning with a hot cup of coffee in the sun. In a less than five minute walk up the street, we had our toes in the sand. The condo complex was quiet and relaxing, the unit clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to cook a couple of nights and we were able to do laundry when needed. Harris Teeter, Currituck Club and Off the Wall Tap House are right across Route 12. The location is fabulous, check in was easy and we used the beach chairs from the storage closet. We would definitely stay here again!
Owner very thorough with paperwork. Owner has bikes (which we used) and beach chairs and an umbrella, items you don’t need to pack. The queen sized bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a beach rental.
Thanks Lorrie for taking the time to write a review, it's appreciated. Hope you had a great time!
Very good place to stay in Corolla
Nice, well kept condo. Just as described on VRBO. Well equipped, all appliances worked. Pool was clean and fun. Had everything we needed to fix breakfast and lunch. Would stay again.
Great location, clean and updated apartment.
Walking distance to the beach and shops. Nice clean pool.
Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review of the property.... it's appreciated!
Very comfortable condo, plenty of space.
Very comfortable condo, plenty of space, fully equipped. Has washer dryer which is very nice for a family. Well located, very close to major shopping..extremely convenient. The only negative I can say was the trash can was filthy...as it had never been hosed out by the cleaning crew...and the blinds were a bit dusty...but we're nit picking...everything worked out great. The owner is very generous with offering bikes and beach chairs, made a big difference in us shlepping our own from home. Very easy owner to deal with. He's very responsive and concerned. Would definately rent again.
Wild Horses - The Corolla Mustangs are a unique natural resource to our area, and their southern range is only about 10 minutes north of our condo.
You will see many reasons why 'Pelican Landing' is the premier condo vacation destination in Corolla and a step above all others!
