Property description

Our family has been traveling to the Outer Banks area since 1972. This area offers a wonderful family environment especially on the North Beaches where there is less traffic and commercial establishments. Our children remember times at Monteray Shores as the most treasured experiences with family and friends. As adults, the memories continue to build. There's no stop to it! This area continues to offer special moments; awesome outdoor time and activities; convenient shopping for necessities, souvenirs, unique gifts; or a movie theater. You'll experience comfortable living close to it all. You'll love it!
The oceanfront is 5 blocks away which our family thinks is an EASY walk. For those that prefer a lesser walk, there is a free parking lot 1 block from the beach and two for the sound. My family walks because we enjoy the exercise and getting in and out of vehicles seems to be so much trouble for the short distance. If you have a 4 X 4 vehicle, there is the northern beach access for both vehicle and pedestrian traffic approximately 10 minutes away. Wow, this is another awesome way to spend the day and you'll likely see the residual herd of Spanish horses grazing in the dunes or strolling along the waterfront.

Our tenants have access to all of the community's services. Because of the close proximity of our property, the community family and kiddie pools are a VERY short walk from the house. This is true also of the clubhouse, fitness center, boat ramp, tot lot, tennis courts, basketball courts and 2 piers. The community offers children activities and recreational equipment rentals. Biking is easy for the serious or recreational biker with the Currituck County installed bike path bordering the Monteray Shores housing development. The paved bike trail runs adjacent to Route 12 and allows bikers to ride from the most northern point in Corolla to the southern town of Duck. You'll find so many activities, conveniences, and fun so convenient....just a short distance away.

Keywords: short walk to beach (5 blocks), sound access, beach access, shopping, convenient to community amenities, pool, fitness center, boat ramp, extensive bike trails,well furnished kitchen, paperback library, games/puzzles, 2 TVs (47' smart tv & 24'), wireless internet, bikes, corn hole game, basketball goal, 2 hammocks, outdoor shower, charcoal grill, beach toys, sand chairs, and child pack (pak n' play, high chair, baby gate).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

Why the Owner Chose Monteray Shores (Corolla, NC, USA):
We have been going to the Outer Banks since 1972. It is our favorite place on the continental US to enjoy the sun . This is our routine place to vacation with our children and friends. It is a perfect place to create endless, wonderful memories. We love the fact that it remains today less commercialized. Yes, there are some beach shops but it is not the 'boardwalk' scene. Choose the Outer Banks for the simplicity and the good life!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy easy, close access to the 4 wheel drive driving beach area as an alternative to the pedestrian only beach. Almost every visit includes viewing the wild horses and other wildlife. Oh, this is a relaxing place! The property is cleaned by a top notch cleaning firm and that fee is included in the rental price. To make your stay even more relaxing and to allow for maximum beach time, cleaning services are available during the week for a reasonable fee.
