About the property

3 Bedroom, Sleeps 8, Plus Bunkhouse Sleeps 2+, 2.5 Baths

Enjoy the privacy of this one-of-a-kind beach home with gardens designed by a North Carolina Master Gardener and private beach access, available for rent for the first time this year. This lovely home is a special escape from the sun, nestled among the pine trees on this highly sought-after private street.

Feel right at home in this cozy and comfortable beach house. Only 500 yards to private beach access on a slow paced sandy lane. And a short walk down the street to historic Corolla Village's shops, eateries, and the Currituck Lighthouse where the views are outstanding.

Our home sleeps 8-10 people comfortably with 1 king/2 twins, 2 queen, 1 bunk, and 1 Queen sleep sofa. 1 master (offering a private bathroom and deck access). The open floor plan is great for family meals and hanging out. Enjoy the sitting room on the second floor for TV watching.

In the off season the house is a Bed and Breakfast for 6 (plus the bunk house). The owners have the first floor and they rent out the second floor with two bedrooms, a sitting room, and large private bath. A delicious breakfast is served every morning.

About Jessica Dalrymple

In 2003 Earl retired from flying as a commercial pilot, and he designed and built this house for Jessica. It was a lot of work but it was worth it. With a family of six kids and 9 grand-kids, this house has seen a lot of joy and fun times. Earl and Jessica celebrated their 50th anniversary in this house a few years ago, and hope you feel all that love. We really hope you enjoy your vacation here!

Why Jessica Dalrymple chose Corolla

The gardens of this house are spectacular. Earl has been growing and tending this garden for years and it shows.

What makes this cottage unique

This is the most sought-after street in Corolla due to the private road and beach access. You won't find more space on the beach than right at the end of Persimmon Rd.

Great location, all the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

It was just as advertised and perfect for a local wedding with access to the beach and within walking distance to the must sees (lighthouse, hertidge park). A relaxing stay. Not for families with young children as there are many breakables

Great house in a great spot made for a great week.

  • 5 of 5

Travelling with teenagers can be a challenge but this house had so much available - kayak, skim board, beach towels, bikes, etc that all had a blast. Location is prime - Old Corolla across the street and a short walk to an extremely nice private beach. August was the time too - I watered those tomatoes twice a day and was rewarded with some of the most flavorful cherry tomatoes I have ever eaten. Kitchen and laundry were first rate. Foam mattresses a definite plus. Thank you for sharing your home

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven had a wonderful stay in this cute little cottage! It was the best of both worlds-close enough to the beach and yet wonderfully situated in a wooded garden. We enjoyed the porch and the outdoor shower was a hit with our kids! We felt right at home and we felt it made our stay relaxing because it was so easy to stay there. We used the kitchen everyday as we only went out to eat once. We rode the bikes, body surfed on the boards, even used the surfboard one day. We used the sand toys and the chairs and umbrellas were useful too. We walked to get a pizza to bring home one night-the pizza shop is a short walk at the end of the road. We walked to the ice cream shop two or three evenings. It was the best part of our stay being able to just slow down and stay out of the car. I would recommend this home for your family's vacation!

We recently visited Corolla and The Outer Banks for the first time, and had a wonderful trip! The house was warm and inviting and provided all the comforts of home. We especially enjoyed taking the bikes for a spin around the town, and using the skim boards and boogie boards on the beach. I would highly recommend this house for your family's beach vacation.

Favorite Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Corolla for 10 years. This home is beautiful, well appointed, and included everything we needed for our vacation. Minutes from everything we love ~ the lighthouse, crabbing at whale head club, shops at Corolla Light, the wild horses, the beer garden, and private beach access. Perfect location for a perfect vacation. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.
