About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, kid-friendly rec room, hot tub, 10 bikes, free WiFi!

Welcome to Seas-the-Day Corolla, a perfect home-away-from-home in the Outer Banks!

Whether you come to Corolla for the wild horses, Currituck Lighthouse, Whalehead Club, or the unbeatable beaches, you’ll love staying at Seas-the-Day. We’ve put a lot of thought into equipping the house with everything a family might need for a fantastic vacation — so that you barely need to bring a thing! Plus, our keyless entry system and included laundry service mean no time wasted picking up a key or dropping off laundry!

Some of the amenities that our guests have loved most include the bikes, kayaks, beach gear, and game room. And of course don’t forget to try the hammock and hot tub!

As part of the Villages at Ocean Hill community, your stay also includes (all within minutes’ walk): private access to the beach, two swimming pools, a fitness center, tennis and basketball courts, a playground, and a turtle-filled lake (they love Cheerios!).

The house is a 2-minute drive from the wild horse sanctuary of Carova Beach (4WD-accessible), and a 5-minute walk from the nature trail leading to the sound. Miles of newly paved paths just outside the community are perfect for biking, running, or walking.

The house itself is a spacious and relaxing retreat. The heart of the house is the open-concept top floor, which has high ceilings, lots of light, and great views of the lighthouse. This floor includes a full kitchen with bar seating, dining table, sweetheart table (total seating for up to 14), half-bathroom, and three comfy couches for lounging — plus access to a 7-person hot tub, a screened-in porch with table and chairs, and sliding glass doors to a deck with sun loungers. The kitchen includes plenty of glasses, tumblers, dishware, cookware, and appliances (including an icemaker, blender, coffeemaker, 4-slot toaster, and toaster oven) — and even a couple coolers for days at the beach. You can also take advantage of an outdoor charcoal grill and fish cleaning table. The living area comes equipped with a flat-screen TV, DVD/Blu-Ray player, surround-sound stereo, and lots of games and puzzles. And of course, there is free WiFi.

The master bedroom is also located on the top floor, with a king-size bed, full bath, flat-screen TV, and sliding glass doors to the hot tub deck.

The second floor is home to three bedrooms. Another master bedroom here features a queen-size bed, full bath, flat-screen TV, and sliding glass doors to a wraparound deck with a rope hammock and a swing chair where you can read, nap, and daydream. The First Flight room is perfect for a young family or up to 4 kids, with a full+twin bunk bed and a separate twin bed. The Wild Horse room has 2 twin beds that can easily be pushed together if you prefer. Rounding out the second floor are a large full bathroom and laundry area with washer, dryer, and extra towels, as well as another main entrance off the hammock deck to the house.

The last bedroom on the ground floor doubles as a recreation room, sure to be the kids’ favorite! An arcade-style basketball game and foosball/air hockey/ping pong table offer fun distractions, along with a TV/VCR/DVD/stereo setup and mini-library of books. This room contains a full+twin bunk as well as a pullout sleeper sofa and loveseat. The ground floor also has a half bathroom.

When you’re planning your activities, be sure to check out the bikes, kayaks, and beach gear (chairs, umbrellas, cart, boogie boards, and toys) we’ve provided! And when you’re back from the beach, the private outdoor shower (with both hot and cold water) is the perfect way to rinse off and unwind.

Enjoy your stay at Seas-the-Day!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We are having a wonderful time at your home. The sleeping arrangements have

been perfect for our family and the kids are loving the beach.”

“...We continue to have a great time here at Seas the Day. The house works so well for multiple generations.”

“We did appreciate the new furnishings. I liked the little lamps with the switches on the cord and appreciated that the bulbs were bright enough for older eyes. The lounge chairs were great as were the swing and hammock.”

“... You know, the living room area is so well set up and comfy that we all enjoy finding a

corner and being together or alone, and the couches are very comfortable. We slept in the king room (elder perks) and found the mattress very comfortable, and everyone else seemed satisfied. I was pleasantly surprised with how generous you were with paper and cleaning products including coffee filters.”

“Also we have discovered that the lower deck is a delightful place to enjoy morning breezes or escape the afternoon sun. Anyway, all is well... and we will be checking out on Sunday morning. Thanks again for providing such a pleasant place to stay.”

Relaxing, Comfortable Getway

  • 5 of 5

Seas the Day was the perfect getaway for my busy life! It has all the amenities - hammock, hot tub, fully stocked kitchen, bikes, game room, comfortable beds, and lovely decor. It's minutes from the beach and cruising to Duck Donuts for my crew in the morning was a short little bike ride away. I plan to make it back every year and start a new tradition.

Great location, nice house filled with everything you need from the kitchen to the beach!!

  • 4 of 5

Seas the Day provided everything our extended family needed. Good location, things to do on rainy days, which we had a couple. The kids enjoyed the game room. We had some trouble with bike tires going flat but that has been a problem with all the houses we have rented....and even an issue at home! :). The community pools were nice and not to busy. There was plenty of room for the families to find a quiet place if needed. We were short replacement linen for the checkout procedure but we were able to relay our needs and hopefully the next family coming on had what they needed. Overall it was a great stay.

Nice clean home

  • 5 of 5

We had to pleasure of staying at the property over the memorial day weekend. The house is exactly how it is described. Nice clean and cozy home. Not exactly by the beach but quite walk-able. Our group of 6 kids had a fun time, esp. the teenagers, who were outdoors for hours on end on the bikes that the house had. Great time!

We really enjoyed the three nights stay in this property; house is super clean really species to accommodate 14 people. Nice board games to entertain all people. Ms. Elizabeth Barrett was really helpful and really quick answering all our queries; her support was really awesome as and when we needed. Bikes were in awesome condition and we had a great time. We would definitely going back to this property again next year :)

Thank you Elizabeth !
