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 24, 2018.

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.

  • 5 of 5

Property is maintained and updated. Everything in condo worked and was clean. Cindy was very helpful before we arrived. Very informative and accommodating. 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.

Beautiful but a surprising amount of work

  • 4 of 5

The condo is great and the owner was very helpful! Gorgeous beach access + nice pool and hot tub and very fairly priced. Make sure you check the checkout instructions way ahead of time! Checkout is a little early at 10am and you are expected to launder pillow shams and remake the beds before you leave. Not a big deal but not sure where the money for the cleaning fee is going; seems like all the cleaners do is sweep as the guests are required to take out garbage/fold blankets/launder anything used etc. Overall very positive experience!

Simple, convenient and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

This condo has plenty of space for our family of 4 and the proximity to the pool, ocean, tennis and Duck Donuts made it convenient and relaxing. The condo was cleaned and furnished adequately but could use a little updating on kitchen appliances and mattresses etc. to earn a very top rating from me. Overall we had a very enjoyable and quiet stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Leah. I am actually completely renovating the kitchen right now with new cabinets, counter tops, appliances and back splash, as well as new mattresses in each of the bedrooms. Hope you have a chance to check it out!

Quiet Condo Community for a relaxing get-away

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect condo for us. We were attending a very large family reunion and being able to come back to a quiet retreat was much needed. The kitchen has everything you need...completely stocked. We cooked a lot so it was great. Quick walk to the beach and the beach chairs and toys were so handy. Centrally located to the shops and grocery. The owner, Cynthia was always available if we had questions with a phone call or a quick email. Would definitely recommend.

Great location, residents very friendly!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this property, the people staying here were all very friendly. Walk to the beach was a little further than expected,but it was nice to be able to leave your things at the beach and not worry about them disappearing. Wonderful vacation, we're planning to return to Corolla next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks John- I'm so glad you enjoyed Hydrotherapy! We love the fact that our beach is so private and expansive, thanks to the green space and low concentration of development. It's a treasure!

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.
