Overview

About the property

Four bedroom, 3 1/2 bath beautifully decorated home near the beach

Fully renovated in 2013! Everything was replaced in this house from bathrooms and kitchen to furniture and bedding. All new flooring throughout. New washer and dryer and revamped laundry space. A spectacular wall mural of Corolla's famous wild horses will greet you on the second floor and remind you that these creatures used to use the carport for shelter! Great attention to detail went in to decorating all the rooms.

To all viewers of this site, my home is only available for rent on VRBO/HomeAway. It is not available on a third party site or Craigslist. You will only speak to me, the owner, when making inquires or bookings.

About Julie Harris

Thank you for your interest in our beach house. This house was built in 1989 by my Aunt, and was her pride and joy for over twenty years until she passed away in 2012. My Aunt wanted this house to stay in the family and be enjoyed for decades so she designated us as its new owners and caretakers. We gratefully accepted the honor.

Julie Harris purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie Harris chose Corolla

This property was completely renovated in 2013. A new kitchen, new bathrooms, an added 1/2 bath upstairs. Freshly painted inside and out. Master bedroom was redesigned to accommodate a king size bed. All the furniture and linens are new. All kitchenware is new, dishes, glasses, silverware, pots and pans. Everything is new!

What makes this house unique

This property is designed for one or two families. Family reunions will have to be for another day. With a straight walk to the beach on a walkway, it's very convenient to go back to the house to refill the cooler, jump in the pool, or find reprieve from the midday sun.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely spotless and very tastefully decorated. Owner has thought of nearly everything. Conveniently located beside the walkway to the beach. We'd like to keep this little treasure all to ourselves , but in all fairness to the owner, we loved it!!

Relaxing charming beach house

  • 5 of 5

Your beach home is absolutely beautiful! CLEAN, updated, modern and first class all the way. My family of 7 instantly felt at home. We have younger kids and everywhere we turned they were enjoying all the extras you thoughtfully put in the house. PS4, board games, books, a stocked storage area in carport with pool and beach toys,chairs, umbrella and a wagon for trips to beach. The home is private with trees and the beach walkway is steps from driveway. The beach is an easy 1 1/2 football fields away. The gourmet kitchen is a joy to cook in with excellent pots/pans, spices, and all the extras. Every room in the house is comfortable with high quality beds/bedding and plenty of closet and drawer space. We made many memories here and are already planning our next trip back !!

Julie was helpful and great with accommodations.

Lovely house, very comfortable, short walk to the beach, lots of amenities. Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Julie was extremely responsive and great to work with. The house is beautifully decorated and she has provided a lot of amenities that make this feel very "homey" vs a vacation rental. Best rental house we've ever had in the Outer Banks and will definitely be keeping this on the list of places to revisit.

Amazing vacation with the family at the Outer Banks!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house in the Outer Banks and it was a pleasure dealing with Julie as the homeowner too. The house could not have been nicer and it has a great location with a short walk to the beach. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation and we'd love to return again at some point. We'd definitely recommend staying here if you're planning a vacation to the Outer Banks.

Great cozy beach house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautifully decorated, cozy house. The house was clean, attention was paid to small details. The pool and screened porch were wonderful. The location was perfect, and a short walk to beautiful beach. It was peaceful, and the owner Julie, was such a pleasure to work with. She truly cares about accommodating her renters, ensuring a wonderful time. This area is lovely and affforded us the privacy and tranquility we so desired. Everything was so comfortable and we look forward to renting again!

Can't wait to go back!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just back from a long weekend with friends here and we could not have had a better time. The house was immaculate and had tiny touches of home that really made us feel very comfortable. Julie was great at providing us with information about the place and answering any questions we had. The location is absolutely perfect. We loved hearing the sound of the ocean as we fell asleep at night. We had so much fun cooking in the kitchen, it was stocked with pots, pans, dishes, and was so organized! I cannot say enough good things about the place. We are looking to come back late Fall for another trip! Thank you Julie!
