About Fred

Cheri and Fred live in Cleveland, Ohio. Cheri works as a financial planning assistant and Fred works in the medical gases industry. They fell in love with the Outer Banks and especially with Corolla Light on their first visit. They take exceptional pride in the condition of their vacation home and like to hear from their guests during and after their stay.

Fred purchased this house in 2005

Why Fred chose Corolla

They purchased Soundside because they enjoy the foliage of tall trees while only being a short three blocks from the beach. The amenities of Corolla Light Resort are second to none in the OBX and the northern beaches are much less encumbered by the summer crowds.

Great House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We love coming back to this house every year! It is so well taken care of and well equipped! We stay 3 weeks each fall and it always feels lik coming home. Our grandsons come for a few days each year and they love having the pool, pool table, pinball and big TVs. I love the the lake and watching all the animals. Our standard poodles have a great time pushing their ball off the top deck and running down the stairs to retrieve it! It's quiet and homey! Super clean!!

Fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at "Sunrise Sunset" & we've already booked again for next year! The pictures & descriptions pale to what you will experience in this vacation home! From the time you arrive and are met by the cleaning service who take you through the home & explain everything you need to know about the home & make sure you approve their sevice before they leave! Once the home is yours for the week it's straight pleasure & relaxation, from the air hockey, pool table & pinball machine on the lower level to the beautiful pool or hot tub in the private yard! You could also just sit & relax on any of the wrap around decks! This was definately relaxation plus!!

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

We had our family ages from 13-75 and loved every minute. Our family had stayed in Corolla Light in another house on the beach for 4 Years. This home was perfect at this time in our lives because all were old enough to go to the beach on their own. It was so quiet and peaceful on the sound side. The home was very clean and very beautiful. There wasn't anything that we looked for that wasn't there. There was no doubt we were going to put the deposit down for 2013. Thank you to the family for letting us use their beautiful home.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Dear Fred,

We just returned from our week at Sunrise Sunset and wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our visit. Your home is wonderful and we especially enjoyed the game room activities. The ping pong, basketball and pinball machine were great fun. My husband loves to shoot pool but I'm afraid he didn't get to use the table as much as he would have liked since I'm not a very good pool shark! My ladies group arrived on Thursday and loved the house, too. We have all gotten to the age where sharing a bedroom/bathroom is not fun anymore. We really enjoyed the privacy.The house was very clean and we loved having the beds made up for us! The weather was absolutely beautiful the whole week. It couldn't have been any better! Again, thank you for allowing us to stay the extra day. We hope to return and one of my friends has requested the rental information. Again, thank you for an amazing vacation!

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

6 years ago when we got our dog Chia, we were concerned about the prospect of having to stay in a “dog friendly“ house. To us, the phrase brought to mind smells, stains and ripped carpets. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Sunrise Sunset and found none of the above. In fact, we found it to be the best rental experience that we have had at Outer Banks. Since then we have been back every year.

One of the clinchers for me was that when we were leaving after our 1st stay we wrote in the guest book that, being there late in the year (October) It was dark outside by dinner time, and that it would be a good idea to have a light installed near the outside grill. Lo and behold when we arrived the following year the light had been installed. I believe that story illustrates the type of experience that you should expect in this home. The owners keep this property meticulously maintained. Every year we come to find new carpet or freshly finished hardwood, not a hint of peeling paint or other maintenance left undone……and STILL, 6 years later, no doggy smells, stains or ripped carpet.

In fact, we have come to think of Sunrise Sunset more as a 2nd home than a rental, and are considering staying here once every 6 months instead of annually.

Don’t even think about it; Dog or not, if you are looking for a beautiful sound side home with lovely views and all the amenities, this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: Cheri & I really appreciate our repeat guests and take their suggestions to heart. When we have a good rental season, we put some of the rent earned toward new improvements so as to keep our home fresh and in top shape. We have been fortunate that we have now had five good seasons in a row and our additions for 2012 will be a new bathroom and new carpeting in the mid and lower level BR's.

Owner's Response: We take pride in our rental home and work hard to keep it updated and in top shape. In addition to the common pool table, we have a ping pong table and "old fashioned" pinball machine to help entertain guests of any age. We are especially happy when we hear from our guests that they love visiting our home as much as we do!
