About Julie

My name is Coco and I love the Outer Banks. I like walks on the beach at sunrise and sunset. I like to chase the sand crabs too. Corolla if a dog friendly beach with a lifeguard station, in case I get in the ocean too far.

I have travelled to Hilton Head, Sanibel and up and down the OBX coastline but I love Corolla and the peaceful atmosphere. There are some dog friendly restaurants that I take my family to as well.

Julie purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Julie chose Whalehead Beach

I chose Villas at Corolla Bay because of the upscale property features that is has to offer. With the hardwood and tile floors as well as the granite kitchen it is a beautifully constructed home.

The location is also supreme in that I can visit the light house, travel to see the wild horses, and there are some fantastic restaurants in the area.

What makes this cottage unique

In 2014 we have placed in a new pool to the property so that our guests have the convenience of swimming with leaving the property. I just enjoy basking in the sun watching the birds and butterflies go by.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an enjoyable family vacation here this week. We had watched the Villa/s being built over th elast two years.s It was fun to be able to rent the Coco Cabana and stay here. Your vacation home is lovely.

Nice house with pool and hot tub

  • 5 of 5

The house was nice and clean...pool and hot tub were great...big help having the wagon with beach chairs available. Management company was very helpful. Close enough to the beach but we had bikes which made it really easy. We'd definitely stay there again.

Almost everything was perfect

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed ourstay at coco's cabana. The house is perfect very close walk to the beach and shopping center only a short couple minutes drive away. The swimming pool was big enough and the hot tub was great. The only thing that we did not like the mattresses in every room are very hard and squeaky I was scared to roll over because our daughter was sleeping in the same room with us and it would always wake her up. The other thing is it could have a little better cleaning, the house looked clean but because we have kids I always make sure there are no dirt anywhere. When I washed the floors upstairs it was a lot of black dog's hair on the floor. We did have a dog with us but he is light beige color. Overall, our experience was great and we would recommend it anyone with kids, there are a lot ot beach gear such as an umbrellas, beach wagon, boogie board, floaties and etc.

Stars Off for Spiders

  • 3 of 5

House was great as was community and commute to the beach but the spiders rendered the outside area all but useless. Inside there were some spiders, but nothing, absolutely nothing could prepare us for the pool area, the entrance and the garage. Just wasn't enjoyable being outside. The magnitude of them, the size the size of them, just how dirty it felt. Not sure if it was the time of the year, the location of the house but it was horrible. Calls to rental company yielded nothing. Went out and purchased a spray head for the hose to at least be able to go out and walk dog at night and spray a path. After the first night, when son caught 'a frog' that ended up being a spider, couldn't get anyone to open any doors after dark. As I said, house was great...but being unable to fully enjoy the outside put a damper on it. Might as well have rented a home without a pool and saved some money. And a lot of aggravation from my now arachnophobic husband and kids.

I have been disappointed in the lack of response of the rental company and have made a change for 2016. I know how important vacations are for my family and want nothing but the best for those who stay at our home.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Coco's Cabana. The house is in great condition - looks just like the pictures. It was very clean and the beds were even comfy. The owner is great to work with and even bought a pack and play and baby gate for us to use during our stay. The beach wagon came in handy and only took us about 10 minutes to walk to the beach. We can't wait to come back!

Best In Corolla Bay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have visited Corolla several times, and we loved this new community. This property was beautifully decorated and has its own private pool. I also loved how the cottage was equipped with beach chairs and umbrellas as well as a beach wagon.

The walk was on a boardwalk and took us about 15 minutes.

My family and I had the best time this year. The weather could not be more perfect. Our new favorite place to stay in Corolla.
