About Lynn Hoffmann

We've enjoyed vacationing on the Outer Banks for many years and also have other homes in Corolla #467724 in Whalehead Beach, #740201in Villages at Ocean Hill and a home in Duck, NC VRBO #309544, in the Four Seasons neighborhood. Corolla Light and Four Seasons communities both offer perfect settings and great community features for year round enjoyment and relaxation. Our home #467724 in Corolla's Whalehead Beach community is oceanfront.

We want you to have a great time & relaxing vacation - or a very active one if you prefer - and have outfitted the house so that will happen in style and comfort. If you want information or suggestions about the area feel free to call in addition to emailing questions.

We welcome your comments and suggestions and look forward to hearing from our guests and getting to know you.

Thank you for visiting See World - Lynn & Rich.

Lynn Hoffmann purchased this house in 2010

Why Lynn Hoffmann chose Whalehead Beach

This is the home of our dreams! We've vacationed at the Outer Banks for 20 years, often in Duck - and love it - but discovered Corolla Light has the best community features and management around. More info and a video at website address It operates the largest indoor Sports and Recreation Center on the Outer Banks year round. The town of Corolla and Currituck County cooperate to actively manage and develop great features for residents and guests alike while carefully protecting and promoting this unique special area.

What makes this house unique

There are top of the line finishes and details throughout See World and features many other homes don't have. The most unique built in pool in the area awaits you at See World. The bedrooms have custom finished bathrooms and deck access and the roof top deck has a sweeping view that allows you to 'See World'. The great room kitchen, dining and living room areas are spacious and made for entertaining.

The dining room table is large enough to do a puzzle there and still have room to set the table and enjoy dinner there.

We love coffee in the morning and Happy Hour on the soundside decks for the view

The Ships Watch is the nicest reading and game area with a bright sunrise view.

See World's game room is fun to hang around on rainy days, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" I was fortunate to stay one week with my friends at your rental, "See World" in Corolla last year. We are looking to vacation again this October in Emerald Isle, NC. Do you have a home near there or any VRBO recommendations for that area? We enjoyed "See World" so much it's difficult to find another home that even comes close. If you have any suggestions that would be great! Thanks in advance!"

(Sorry, we didn't have a home there for Stacey but we loved this unusual request so much we had to share it!)

What a great house!

  • 5 of 5

As I have previously wrote the owners, my family of five (now 15 yo, 13, 10) have been going away together for a week around Christmas for 13 years. This is the best house we have stayed in.

Simply it is as described; very well kept, organized, everything worked (which is remarkable for a rental). The owners were very good to work with as well as the vacation rental company. We loved that all the cabinets and light switches were labeled; no spending a day figuring out where things are and what things do.

The gym membership locally was very good for us too given the cold weather; we were there everyday exercising and swimming. We also walked to the beach everyday.

Certainly recommend this property; thank you Lynn for letting us rent it from you this year,

Owner's Response: We felt the same way about you & your family, Rob! You are thoughtful and considerate of our property. Our housekeeper said you left See World in perfect condition - an extra big 'Thank You' for that. You're great guests. We really enjoy knowing that guests of See World enjoy all the community of Corolla Light Resort and our house has to offer. And you hearty souls walked to the beach in January. Cheers to you! Thanks for choosing See World, we hope you'll return to celebrate another time.

Something for everyone and a complete package

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property! We were a group of seven, including 3 children. There were beds for everyone and plenty of different spaces to "escape" from one another! The kids were "in" the pool for nanoseconds, but the hot tub made the experience one they repeated. November in Corolla was not "warm," but the shopping and the eating was great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for reviewing your Thanksgiving vacation stay at See World. We're so glad a good time was had by all. Try us out in May or June sometime for some warmer pool and air temperatures. Happy Holidays to You & Yours!

We couldn't have asked for more!

Simply amazing! They thought of everything. Even though there is so much to do in the area, we didn't want to leave the house. We loved the pool and the sauna. Every room was nice and so comfortable. The master bedroom was amazing. The kitchen is supplied with anything you need to cook. And if you don't feel like cooking, there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance. Everyone in our family agreed this was the best house we've stayed out of all our family vacations. We will definitely be back.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This house is very nice an well maintained . The sunsets are beautiful. Only complaint would be when we go the pool water is so cold you really cant enjoy the pool an our group feels The amount required to heat the pool is too high. Therefore last couple years we hardly used the pool. Other then that the owners are very nice to work with. We enjoyed our visit.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your teview, Marie , And for returning to See World. The pool is a big feature of the house and we'd like you all to enjoy it. It'sa largerthan average pol. We have to price out the pool heat at a rate that can average out the cooler months of March- May and Oct-Nov but we'd like everyone to enjoy the pool. We have some flexibility with pool heat fees from late May - Sept. i'm sorry you didnt mention this to us prior to your vacation so we could discuss an alternative. We'll definately work with you on this at.a future time. Thanks for letting us know. L

Remarkable home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of ten had a wonderful stay at this remarkable home. We had pleanty of room to be together, but also so many places for anyone to get away from it all if they chose to.

The children love the pool and spent hours swimming from the outside to the inside!

We took advantage of the wonderful kitchen and filled all three refrigerators, cooking some delicious meals during our stay.

Hope we can arrange for all to use this again in the future.

Owner's Response: It's amazing how easy it is to fill up a refrigerator, no matter how many you have!! We're happy you used and enjoyed all that See World has to offer. Lucky you, with an alternative school schedule you can travel in the very affordable off season and the weather was still beautiful! Thanks for choosing See World for your family's trip

Our stay was perfect (which I can't always say about other houses). This house had every accommodation we could have asked for. The beds were comfy, the kitchen fully stocked, and there was plenty of room for our party of 10 (6 adults and 4 kids). We had one issue when the cable went out after a storm and the property owners were quick to respond and had the problem solved the next day. The owner, Lynn, was also very pleasurable to talk to and puts forth great effort to please her guests and to care for her property. Golf cart rentals made our trip to the ocean front or Corolla Light amenities very easy. I would highly recommend this house for a perfect beach getaway!
