About the property

3BR Corolla condo, sleeps 7 which is the MAXIMUM occupancy.

If your prescription for the perfect vacation is a big dose of relaxation, then this may be the place for you. No hassles getting to the beach- no parking, no trolleys, just an easy stroll down the private walkway. Because the adjoining land is undeveloped green space, the beach here is extremely low density. A sparkling private pool is surrounded by extensive decking and lounge seating along with a gazebo for outdoor dining. Inside the condo, there are three bedrooms: a master with queen bed and private bathroom, children's bedroom with a double and twin bunk combination, and a third bedroom with a double bed. There is an additional bathroom with complete laundry facilities, a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, and spacious family room. The family room features a large screen TV/DVD with surround sound capacity, digital cable with children's channel package added, along with CATV/DVD in children's room and CATV in Master. Wireless internet is provided throughout, including patio. There is an extensive collection of games, puzzles and arts and crafts. The kitchen is supplied with microwave, ice maker, blender, brew and Keurig coffee makers, gourmet cookware. Patio overlooking pool and deck with picnic table and Adirondack furniture, grill available. Tennis and golf directly across the street. All equipment needed for crabbing, surf fishing, or kite flying is provided as well as beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, boogie and skim boards. Mini-golf, go-karts, kayaking, museums, restaurants, take-out BBQ and sea food as well as great shopping are all within easy walking, biking or driving distance. If you have a four wheel drive vehicle, you can explore the off road beaches for even more adventure and privacy. Corolla is still OBX the way it used to be! Please be advised that Hydrotherapy is strictly limited to an occupancy maximum of seven total persons. Rentals are Saturday to Saturday, from June 1- August 26, 2017.

About Cynthia Favret

Over the years, we have especially enjoyed coming to the OBX from Williamsburg, sometimes on the spur of the moment since it is a relatively short commute (2 hours). If your vacation travels are going to take you through the Williamsburg area, we would be happy to suggest some local travel tips!

Cynthia Favret purchased this condo in 1996

Why Cynthia Favret chose Ocean Sands

We love the fact this section of the beach is next door to one of the only undeveloped green spaces in Corolla. Even in the height of the season, you can sit on the beach and be alone. This place is a treasure...private, but yet close enough to great places to eat and play.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo offers the best location available in a small community of only 30 total units. It is set far enough away from the deck and pool to provide privacy and quiet, yet directly across the street from both tennis and golf. A second floor location provides fantastic views as well as solitude and quiet.

We arrived an hour early than check in and we were allowed to check in early. Definitely recommending this to family and friends. Thanks for helping make our vacation memorable.

It was a well appointed, cute, quiet property very near the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family of four enjoyed staying here. It was quick and easy to get into. It was the perfect amount of space for 4-5 people. The condos were quiet and the pool entertained the kids. It was a short walk down a walkway to the private beach access. The storage shed had lots of chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards etc. Everything worked as it should inside the condo. The location was super convenient with a small shopping center across the main road that included a grocery store, big beach shop and the infamous Duck Donuts. I would stay here again.

Great location, would definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Corolla and we would definitely stay again! After staying with extended family in one large house last year we chose to rent a few separate units at Indian Summer for additional space.

The unit was clean and well appointed. The layout was great and the kids loved sitting on the covered front porch at the picnic table. They also loved the pool and the short walk to the beach. Finally, Cindy was a great host and sent tons of information ahead of time.

Nice condo.

Well located and owner easy to communicate with. Someone will be doing a lot of work to leave the house as required however.

Owner's Response: Nina- So glad you all enjoyed the festivities down in Duck, the wild horses and the other unique offerings of the Northern OBX. Emptying the trash, washing your dishes and cleaning out leftovers doesn't seem an unreasonable request to prepare for check out, but I agree that nobody likes to leave the beach!

The North Carolina Outer Banks are unique in that this barrier island offers wide beaches with old time, unhurried vacation style. From the 1950's style fishing village of Hatteras, to Jockey's Ridge, where the Wright Brothers perfected first flight, to the secluded unpaved off-road beaches of the northern-most part of the island, there is world of things to do and explore. Corolla is a perfect location from which to base your vacation- one of the most private parts of OBX, yet home to some of the best beaches and restaurants.
