About Trish Miller

I have been vacationing on the OBX since 1983 and settled in the Corolla area in 1984. We rented this house for 3 years and the 4th year pulled up and saw the "for sale" sign. I had always loved the beach and dreamed of owning a home near the water. My dream came true and now I hope others will be able to enjoy the beach and my home as much as I do.

I live outside Philadelphia and am a registered nurse and marriage & family therapist. The beach is a wonderful get away and many memories have been made.

Trish Miller purchased this house in 1998

Why Trish Miller chose Corolla

location! Quiet environment. Clear expectations. We do our best to keep the house allergy free by keeping it a smoke free property and no pets allowed. This allows those with asthma & allergies, as well as those with other respiratory issues, to relax, enjoy the environment and hopefully breathe more easily. This is extremely important and we ask all guests to refrain from smoking in our home as well as on decks, pool area and property grounds. Thank you in advance.

What makes this house unique

Clean, well maintained and views of ocean and Currituck lighthouse. Sit on the top deck and watch the dolphins and spectacular sunrises.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A wonderful time in a lovely well cared for home. Everything we needed (and more) was available in this home. Loved the views, quiet neighborhood and easy access to beach across the street. Looking forward to booking early for fall 2015. *****

Home was so much more than we could have imagined. Owner very attentive and communicated throughout the process (from inquiry to biking, sign in and checked in during our stay). It was by far the best rental experience we have had.

Unbelievable Location and Wonderful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is in an Excellent location right caddie corner to the beach access right across the street where cars rarely drive. We had three families stay in this house and never once did we feel crowded. The kitchen was extremely spacious and contained everything you would need during your vacation stay. There was plenty of bedrooms and space for everybody to sleep. The view from the top deck was gorgeous and you could certainly hear the sounds of the ocean without any issues. The outdoor shower was very clean and provided a nice alternatice place to shower vs. using a bathroom if you prefer those conditions. There was even plenty of room in the hall on the lower level to park bikes if you are concerned about your bike being exposed to the weather conditions by the ocean. Overall, I would definitely stay at this house again. Trish was a wonderful host and I appreciate her allowing us to enjoy and use her beautiful home!!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in our first ever trip to Corolla! My Ocean was perfect for our three families! The view was fabulous and the house met all of our needs. The kitchen is perfect for a large crowd--it was very well stocked with everything we needed and large enough for many hands to be in it at one time. The pool was well-kept and great for our teenagers that wanted some time to themselves. The hot tub was nice and we used it more than we anticipated. The house provided great sleeping options for all of our families with plenty of room for adults to hand out, as well as the teens to have their own space too.

The walk to the beach was short and easy to make. The small storage shed in the back of the house was also stocked with beach chairs, which made it nice to not have to bring those from home.

The owner was amazing to work with--she accommodated us on several requests and was just very pleasant when asking multiple questions as we booked our vacation. We will definitely return to Corolla and definitely stay at My Ocean again, as well as recommend it to others!
