About Tim Burress
I grew up in Chatham, NJ and spent my summers on Long Beach Island in Harvey Cedars. I have lived in Boston, NY, and now Richmond, VA with my two fantastic girls Ava and Grace and our dog Finney.
Tim Burress purchased this House in 2003
Why Tim Burress chose Corolla
Running on Faith has been much more than just a house. It has been a blessing, a place of fond memories, and of great joy from all that have shared our home. When a fire took our beloved home 2013 we were devastated but thankful that no one was hurt. Oddly the guests that were there had decided to leave early and we were delayed in our arrival on the eve of the fire. Running on Faith has blessed all that have entered her door. We are thrilled to rebuild her and share our home once again.
What makes this House unique
For nearly 12 years many guests have shared what they love about our home and perhaps it is best expressed by one note I received several years ago that simply said 'Your home is so easy and comforting we just love returning each year' It truly makes me feel grateful to share our home with all of you.

Home away from home.
We had another fantastic time at "Running On Faith". As always the house is neat and clean". The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare all of your meals, pot, pans, utensils and spices are all there for your use. I love the gas stove.
The wildlife was very active this trip, horses, deer, rabbit and frogs were all around. The dolphins were also very active this year.
The gas fireplace was perfect for the cooler evenings. This isn't your typical vacation rental - this is truely a home and we feel that way every year we stay. I am very particular about where we stay when we travel and I think it says something about Tim the owner and his home that this is the only place we keep coming back to every year. I just can't say enough good things about "Running on Faith". Already looking forward to next year's stay.
Awesome Vacation Home!!!!
The home was perfect. Absolutely breath taking setting. There were three couples who we there and it was perfection. Large Great Room, Huge updated Kitchen and Dining Area and each Bedroom (4) had its own Private Bathroom. Wild Horses greeted us on our arrival and visited us throughout the week. Tim, the owner was very easy to contact and was attentive to all of our questions. He is the type of person you feel like you have known for a long time after your first conversation. The weather was perfect and the beach was awesome. We will most definitely be back next year.
House is pertect. Immaculately clean and refreshingly cool especially after a day on the beach. Finishes and furnishings are high end. Beds/bedding are very comfortable, baths are spa-like. Kitchen is professional caliber. Everything is first home, first class quality.
We had three generations that really loved the vacation. The consensus was this was the best family beach vacation we experienced and we have been doing it for 30 years.
The tranquility and solitude provides a perfect opportunity to enjoy family and nature without crowds and distractions.
Truck access directly on the beach allows the ease and convenience to bring everything you need.
Some of the famous wild horses of Corolla made an immediate appearance upon our arrival and would visit several times a day each day we were there.
Tim, the owner, felt more like a friend or relative concerned about our safety, well being and enjoyment. We are grateful for all he did.
Thank you, Tim... We'll be back next year.
Hey Dan - Wow! what can I say. I am truly blessed, I have great guests like you all and an excellent team (cleaners, pool, spa, trash) that all work hard to make Running on Faith a great experience. It really is my pleasure to serve you and your family.
Amazing spot to enjoy relaxation and quality time with family!
We had a beautiful week! The views are stunning - so serene to have all that natural light and the beauty of the beach and ocean while cooking in the well stocked kitchen. The house is gorgeous and comfortable living too... we already inquired where to get a similar sofa - such a great set up! We loved the convenience of driving the car to the beach with all of our gear, and of course, being able to cool down in the pool afterwards. Thanks for sharing your very special home, Tim! We are praying Florence spares all of OBX and particularly Running on Faith! All the best! The Stephens family
This is a home not a rental. I have rented in OBX several times, but this was the best and exceeded our expectations. The care and attention by the owner, Tim, shows. It was very clean and well equipped. Despite the bad weather, we enjoyed the views, cooking, watching movies, and more. Tim even reached out if we were ok because of the torrential rains. On the days that were beautiful we were able to take the chairs to the beach and the floats to the pool, all provided by Tim. The outdoor plush Restoration Hardware couch sets were a bonus. This home is a must for anyone looking to rent in the 4x4 area of OBX.
Lucia - You are so kind. I love to hear that you all had so much fun and got to spend family time together. I had hoped to have a newly purchased shade sail above the outdoor sectional by the pool but Mother nature had other plans. Thank you again. Tim

Running on Faith was an amazing experience!
First off the house is spectacular. It is perfect for what we needed. The kitchen was very nice. Stacked. Had everything we needed to cook for the week. Even had a huge lobster pot! The main family room area was perfect. It was really nice that it was an open concept. We were able to cook meals in the morning, noon and evening while kiddies played with their toys and or watched a bit of TV (especially while we had our morning coffee on the deck). The view of the ocean from the deck was spectacular. It was beautiful to have a drink and watch the sunrise or simply listen to the waves of the ocean in the evening while the kiddies were asleep (and Im sure all parents can relate to the time(s) when you could sit back and have a drink after a busy day with the kids).
The bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice. Clean and modern. Well kept. I know someone had complained about making beds when arriving but I must say it was nice to know we had clean sheets and towels on each bed. It takes 30 seconds to make a bed.
The pool was very nice. It was very convenient to be able to switch from the beach to the pool for a swim while our little guy was napping inside. The hot tub was also very nice. Was perfect to use on those cool evenings. Highly recommended.
The beach was awesome. Top notch. Clean. Water was perfect. It was awesome that Tim had lots of beach chairs, umbrellas and other goodies at the house to be able to use at the beach. I must say boogie boarding was one of the highlights for myself and the kids. Also was awesome to be able to walk from the beach right back to the house, but also to have the option to park on the beach with your vehicle if you didn't feel like carrying stuff.
The wild horses were awesome to see. We managed to see them 5 out of our 7 days at the house and while travelling into town.
Tim was excellent in terms of contact and communication. Very personable and friendly.
This place was a dream. It was extremely hard to leave. We will be back.
5 stars. Highly recommended.
Hi Andreas - Thank you for sharing your thoughts and comments on Running on Faith. I t brings me great joy to know that you and your family had a wonderful time.
All the best, Tim
