About rachel

We have been going to the OBX for years with our four children and were able to purchase this lovely duplex in Corolla. We enjoyed renovating it in cottage style, and have been enjoying it ever since. We invite you to our home and hope you will find it to be like a second home to you.,knowing that everything you will need for cooking you will find, and our home will be clean and tidy. You won't need to bring a million pool toys and rafts, and beach chairs because you are welcom to use ours. Forget the cooler, beach bag, and umbrella.Use ours! Rent linens or bring your own. You will need 1 king set, 1 futon queen set, and 4 twin sets of sheets. Bring the towels you will need. Blanlets, comforters, and pillows are provided. Call Rachel, the Owner for info questions at 610-649-1044.

rachel purchased this townhome in 2002

Why rachel chose Ocean Sands

Although we rented in various locations in the OBX, we immediately fell in love with Corolla in th Northern Outer Banks. The short drive on Route 12 N led to the most beautiful unspoiled beaches along the Outer Banks.We knew that this location was the one for us if we were ever able to purchase a beach house here. Sea Loft Village is not too large, and has a beachy feel., and really wanted to be steps from the beach, and an ocean view was para mount. We did not want a huge complex as there are 30 some homes, and the pool and tennis courts were easily accessible but not within view or hearing distance.Our deck is private and off the kitchen so many meals are on our deck as it is covered. The outside shower and clothes line keep the house clean and towels can get hung outside.

What makes this townhome unique

Carova is just north of Corolla and you can drive on the beach. Great for an outing if you own an SUV.Go on a tour and view the wild horses. The lighthouse is just north of us and you can tour it. The kids will love the waterfont park and museum. Go carts are just a half mile north and water sports are accessible everywhere from kayaks to motor boats. Restaurants are great all along the OBX, featuring great local seafood that the OBX is renouned for.We enjoy many fine restaurants here such as Awful Arthurs, NorthBanks, Steamers, Tomato Patch,,Cotton Gin,<Collington Harbor Restaurant, Fresh seafood at Billy''s Seafood (A locals' favorite)..

Great place for family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the beachy feel of the condo. Not having to bring beach supplies such as chairs, coolers and beach necessities made things alot easier. Short walk to the beach. Enjoyed the natural area around the condo, peaceful and calming.

Recommend seeing the outdoor play "Lost Colony" and driving on the beach to see wild horses.

Planning a return trip to see natural preserve and lighthouses!

Clean; Beautifully Decorated

  • 4 of 5

The duplex was super clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking utensils for any type of food preparation. It even was supplied with sugar, cooking oil, and condiments. Amazing! Plenty of sleeping space was available, 3 bedrooms and a loft area, and good sized bathrooms. Bed (only 2 of us) was not comfortable, but after a day at the beach it wasn't a big deal. The beach was fantastic and one of the nicest we have visited. Rachel was accommodating and so nice to work with. We would definitely stay here again. The only reason this rating is a 4 rather than a 5 in the outside of the unit needed to be groomed, i.e., seaweed and sand swept, beach chairs and other items stored neatly, and litter picked up. This first impression made us wonder about the interior. I do want to emphasize that the unit was spotless, beautiful, and comfortable.

Close to the beach but needs updates...

  • 2 of 5

This townhouse is affordable and very close to the beach and Harris Teeter, which was great, but we had a few issues. Parking was difficult - this is the only unit in the row where you can't park under the house. There is an area to park 2 cars outside the house but it's a cramped area at the end of the block, so wouldn't recommend for 2 cars. The house itself is decorated nicely, but had a musty smell. And, while there were updates on the top floor (kitchen and living room), the master bath really needs an update - it's old and especially the toilet seat needs to be replaced. The other bathrooms were better. The king bed in the master bedroom has two twin mattresses on top so there was a crack in the middle. Also, there was no hammock as mentioned in the ad. We didn't have any trash cans until Wednesday, and the refrigerator had left over food from the previous renters (nonperishable foods, like ketchup, mayonnaise, etc.) Overall, the location was great but the house was somewhat underwhelming.

Owner's Response: Hello Debbie M, We are sorry that there were several issues with you. We have many guests return year after year and I have received many letters over the years, and many this year as well. Guests really enjoy the close proximity of the house to the beach, and the 2 parking spaces outside our door, the lending of the beach chairs, floats, pool equipment, umbrellas, and cooler so they don't need to rent anything. They love the spices and condiments that i leave so the don't have to purchase them and lug them home or toss them and waste good food. No one has ever mentioned any mustiness but being so close to the ocean, guests can smell the salt air.As in most townhomes, one must use a split to have a king size bed. Every Spring we spend several weeks perfecting the house, for the season . I always look forward to the kind notes we receive every year complimenting the location, the condition, the decor, and how well equipped it is. Our returning guests always look forward to the new updates and decorating touches each year. They are especially appreciated this year as I lost my husband in 2015.

Cottage by the sea

  • 4 of 5

You will love staying at this cosy Oceanview condo. Amazing location!! Short walk to beach, pool right around the corner. Harris Teeter walking distance. Unit was well stocked, from the kitchen, to the beach accessories & extra charcoal. Great for families, couples. Felt right at home the 1st night with dinner on the balcony.

Car: necessary

You will need to return again as there is so much to see in the beautiful OBX. If you have an SUV you won't want to miss the northern beaches where you can drive right on the beach. Spend the day there. Barbeque on the beach and maybe try your hand at catching your dinner. Take a day and see the wild horses. There are several companies that will take you. Take the free ferry to Okrascoke and lunch on the island. Stop for a swim on the way down.The kids will love the various rides in the OBX. The seafood is the fresest you will find.the restaurants are fabulous and if you get a rainy day go shop at the Tanger Outlet or catch a movie! No matter what your tastes are you will never forget the great OBX
