About the property

Large, well appointed beach house with lighthouse views and community amenities

Sometimes dreams do come true, and we would love to share our dream with you for your own family retreat at Bluewater Dream.

This beautiful home is filled with everything you could possibly want for a wonderful beach vacation. There is a private pool and 6 person hot tub, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, Italian tile in the top floor master bath, a game room with wet bar and a screened porch with wonderful lighthouse views. New for 2017 are all new kitchen appliances and bedding!

We chose this house for its perfect location in the charming Northern Outer Banks, with its upscale atmosphere, beautiful beaches, convenient shopping, lots of family activities and restaurants.

This home site is nestled on a quiet cul de sac on the Sound side of the exclusive Ocean Hill Community, known for its beautiful ocean front community pool facility. Across the street from Bluewater Dream is the (optional) fitness center, free tennis courts, play ground, basketball courts, Crystal Lake and the sound side community pool. The ocean is a 6-8 minute walk, or you can pack the kids and beach chairs in the car and drive 1 minute to the ocean front facility where you can enjoy the beach and community pool, and take advantage of the snack bar or of course, soak up the sun on the beach.

You are also about a half mile from the 4-wheel drive beach access! So you can pack your own (or a rental) 4-wheel drive vehicle with lunch and spend the day on the beautiful beaches that stretch for miles. Be sure to watch for the wild horses of Corolla! The villages at Ocean Hill is at the end of highway 12, so the pace is slower. This location is a real gem!

1st Floor: A King Master bedroom is located here with an en suite bathroom, which is great for anyone wanting to LIMIT THE USE OF STAIRS. There is a separate game room with wet bar, microwave and mini fridge with foosball table, LED TV and PLAY STATION 3! Access to the pool area and hot tub and of course, the outdoor shower, is here. There is also a gas grill for your convenience.

2nd Floor: There are 4 large Queen bedrooms on this level. One has 2 queen beds. Each pair of bedrooms shares a large full bathroom. The full size washer and dryer are located on this level. And there is a full length second floor deck.

3rd Floor: This floor features a King Master bedroom with a beautifully tiled en suite bathroom, that features a separate shower and jetted jacuzzi tub. Since this is a reverse floor plan, the top floor features the living area with queen sleeper sofa, the dining room and a beautiful kitchen with granite counter tops, New stainless steel appliances and a large breakfast bar. There is also a screened in porch with table and chairs, gorgeous lighthouse views, and a large deck overlooking the pool area. There is also a half bath to serve this area.

Loft: The loft, or ships watch, is a great little get away with a comfortable day bed and trundle.

Maximum Capacity is 18:

2 King Masters

5 Queens

2 Twins (Trundle/day bed in loft)

1 Queen Sleeper in the Living area

Please note that rates for 3 night stays require a cleaning fee of $99, which is an additional cost.

Our private pool is open approximately May 15 through October 15.

About Bill and Linda Tripepi

Our family has been coming to the Outer Banks for many years. We just love it here-Corolla is fantastic! We are happy to share our beautiful beach home with those who would like to stay in our "Bluewater Dream".

Bill and Linda Tripepi purchased this house in 2015

Why Bill and Linda Tripepi chose Corolla

We were first introduced to the Outer Banks when we lived in Virginia Beach in 1980. We spent many wonderful weekends camping here and after we moved away, spent many summer vacations with our kids in the Outer Banks.

It is just a perfect place for an affordable family vacation!

In recent years, we have gravitated to the Northern Outer Banks with all of its amenities and beauty. This area, being close to the 4-wheel drive area, is an oasis away from the denser housing areas.

Now we have secured our retreat in the place we love. We hope you will grow to love it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

This property has it all. Six bedrooms for friends and family, a private pool, a 6-person hot tub, a screened in porch, light house views, 2 large community pools, a work out facility, tennis courts, a large lake, community walkways and trails, an oceanfront facility with rest rooms, a less dense housing area and its nearness to the wild 4-wheel drive area.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our vaction with our family. We loved the view of the lighthouse from the back deck and to our surprise it was an excellant spot to watch the fireworks! The location being so close to the beach and our favorite, the 4x4 beach was awesome. Everyone enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub and the kids liked to watch the turtles in the lake behind the rec center and playing on the play ground. There was something for everyone to enjoy! The owner Bill was very helpful and quick to answer any questions that we had.

Great home for a family visit

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house to bring the whole family together for the holidays (7 kids, 7 adults), and had a great visit. The layout worked really well for a house full of kids, particularly having the 'playroom' on the bottom floor. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was very well stocked with cooking utensils, and there were enough bathrooms to give everyone privacy. We walked the trails and along the beach every day, and the kids enjoyed the basketball courts and playground in the neighborhood. The owners were extremely responsive and friendly. This is a great option all year long!

Belize Bloggers in OBX

  • 4 of 5

There were seven of us. The house was very nice and the location was perfect. For the most part the house was clean. There were a few minor issues but the owner was very quick to address them. Recommend the owner to do through inventory of the house and the appliances to ensure they are in working order and throughly cleaned between rentals.

Perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our vacation at Bluewater Dream and we're all wishing we could turn back around for another week! With having 18 people in our group I was worried the house would seem to cramped but boy was I wrong! For having all of those people under one roof it sure didn't feel like it. Between having two decks, a pool, a hot tub, and an open concept living and dining there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out and do their own thing. The location of the house was perfect! We were only a few minute drive from the town where they had everything you could need! The beach was also only a few minute walk and if you chose to you could drive and park! We had trucks and jeeps so we very much enjoyed going to the 4x4 beach! If you have four wheel drive on your vehicle you can drive right on the beach, park and set up! It was great! Overall we had an awesome week with perfect weather! Couldn't have asked for a better vacation! Thank you Bill and Linda for having us, we can't wait to come back!!

Bluewater Dream was wonderful- everything I could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Property is beautiful- so comfortable! The pool & hot tub were great- and Ocean Hills Community amenities were absolutely wonderful- not being directly on the ocean didn't matter at all! Ocean access was so easy with parking, rest rooms, gorgeous beach, swimming pool & showers- couldn't ask for more!

Our home in The Villages at Ocean Hill is perfectly located to take advantage of everything this area has to offer. It's in the upscale Northern Outer Banks, about a half a mile from the 4-wheel drive area where you can drive on the beach and see the beautiful wild horses. Or look to our south to see the Currituck Beach Lighthouse. We are across the street from the sound side community pool, workout facility, playground and tennis courts. Yet only a 5 min. walk or 1 min. drive to the Ocean Hill oceanfront facility! Beach umbrella and chair rentals are available, and there are restrooms so you don't have to run home when nature calls. There is also another ocean Hill beach area with parking directly across Rt. 12. All in all, our location takes maximum advantage of everything the Ocean Hill development and the Northern Outer Banks has to offer! So what are you waiting for?
