About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Located in the Villages at Ocean Hill, “Bono Fide Blessing” is in a quiet, soundside cul-de-sac yet only a half mile from the beach. Plan to spend time together in the large Living Room which has a 55" UHD Smart TV with Sound Bar (note: interior gas fireplace is not for guest use). This pet-friendly home has 5 bedrooms, all with flat-screen Smart TVs and features two King Master and one Queen Master Suites, all with new beds for 2015. Another Queen bedroom (also with a new bed) shares a Jack-n-Jill bath with a bedroom of two Twin Beds and deck access. The spacious Kitchen and Dining area have stainless steel appliances, island seating for three and a dining table that accommodates 10. The kids will enjoy the separate Game Room which is up a short flight of stairs and offers a bumper pool table, TV, mini- fridge, microwave and wet bar. Enjoy the large private pool, hot tub and dining table on the outdoor patio. Guests have passes to park at the ocean side parking lot, which is 100 yards away from the surf, rather than walk over with their beach gear, if they prefer. Remember, your family will be able to use all the amenities of the VOH community including free access to the Fitness Center (6 passes for guests), 2 community pools (one by the ocean and the other by the Fitness Center), basketball, tennis, and volleyball courts plus a playground for children. Sharkey’s, a full-service snack bar is located by the beach where you may choose to beachcomb, sun, swim or stroll on the pristine beaches of Corolla, but for a change of pace, use your SUV to explore the nearby 4WD beach where you may come across a small herd of wild horses as they saunter near the tideline!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bono Fide Blessing was a great house for our family vacation. There were 6 adults and 3 kids with us. There was pletny of room for us to spread out. The pool and pool deck were much larger than what it seemed on the pictures which was unusual for a house in OBX. The house was very clean and very well kept. It was a very easy walk to the beach. Although we rented bikes and rode them there each day.

Peaceful and super fun for the family.

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome time during our stay in Bono Fide Blessing. It was very quiet on the sound side and felt like a true relaxing vacation. My kids went back and forth from the pool to the beach. The house was clean and well stocked. We could not find a vacuum cleaner which would have been nice to help keep things tidier throughout the week. We could not figure out how to turn on the outdoor shower, I think the valve was not turned on. We just used the hose right next to it so we kept the sand in the house and pool to a minimum. I spend a ton of time in the outdoors with work and play. With that said, the sound side does have more bugs than across the street. It was really beautiful and peaceful but a few citronella candles and bugs spray are key. I don't say that to deter anyone from staying on the sound side as it was awesome but come prepared. It was easy to manage even at the height of the summer. My family had a wonderful stay and we look forward to returning soon. Thank you!

Love vacationing in Corolla!! So much to do in such a scenic area.

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and very nice. Bathroom tub in the jack and Jill bathroom was backed up. The pool was very nice, my family completely enjoyed it. The PS4 was very well received by my grandson. The community was very nice as well. We went for walks and enjoyed the pool/pier with the turtles. The walk to the beach was short and very scenic. Completely enjoyed ourselves and we will be back for sure!!

A nice house that served our purpose well... but I had to really clean it first.

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the house was nice. Lots of space, well stocked, nice pool and hot tub, linens provided, pet friendly, good location. But this house is very dirty, inside and out. No, we did not call and report it so that we could wait longer so someone could come out and re-clean, but the outside needs washed, had to duck through spider webs to get in the door. The carpet is disgusting. Could smell urine when we walked in the door. The master bedroom comforter had old blood stains on it. Mid week we washed the sheets and I found that the mattress cover also had blood on it, NO WAY that could have been missed when making a bed. I washed it, but no excuse for finding something like that. We were chased out a day early due to the storm and checkout procedure asks that guests vacuum all the broom or vacuum in the house. We still left it better than we found it. Also, would be nice for a house that sleeps 10 to have more than 2 lounge chairs around the pool. Made the best of it and had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback. I'm very shocked to read your review, as we hold our cleaning staff and inspectors to very high standards. When reporting issues such as these to your management company, it gives the company the ability to not only remedy the issue for you, but to also address the problem with the cleaning crew and inspector responsible for that home, so that issues like these do not reoccur. Again, I am very apologetic that you had to experience such issues during your stay and if there is anything we can do to earn back your trust for another season, please do not hesitate to let us know. Thank you again for the input during your stay.

Beautiful property in a quiet neighborhood and close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! It had plenty of room for all our family. It was pet friendly so we could bring along our Chi-weenie dog, Penny.

The private pool and hot tub was awesome. The beach was a very close walk, but the parking passes made it easier to get our beach stuff over to the beach.The house was big enough so all family members could have some privacy. The younger folks loved the game room area with the bumper pool table. The only complaint we had was, there was an ant problem in the kitchen, but nothing an exterminator couldn't take care of.

Overall , You can bet we will rent this house again in the future!!

This vacation rental was fantastic! The home was soooo nice, that we wanted to move in! The pool water was warm, it was close to the beach and we couldn't have been more pleased with everything. Thank you Paramount!
