  • Warm and inviting

    "We just finished up an awesome week in Corolla at Wish You Were Home. From the moment we walked in we knew this was not your "normal" weekly rental. We were greeted with a clean and fresh smell, everything intentional placed and well appointed. There was not a speck of dust. Every detail was perfect. It is truly like walking into a Pottery Barn show room. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens were soft and smelled super!! There is an abundance of towels (again fresh smelling) and wash cloths. I am a clean freak so I was beyond happy!!! The kitchen is well stocked with Calphalon pots and pans that were like new. So nice to cook fried eggs that didn't stick to the pans (which is mostly the case in rentals). I usually bring my own pans (lol), but I read folks comments and they mentioned the pans. There are all the spices you need (I love to cook and unnecesarily brought my own), tin foil, plasic wrap, trash bags, dishwashing liquid and detergent. The laundry room is clean and had several bottles of detergent and dryer sheets. The outdoor areas are large and welcoming. Our favorite deck being the top deck. We spent every night star gazing. Julie has put pillows on the outdoor chairs which adds a homey look and feel. Plenty of seating on the decks and around the pool. The pool is ginormous and in great condition. The outdoor shower area is the largest we've ever seen and very clean. The gas grill was a blessing!!!! no fighting with charcoal and Outbanks winds to get an open grill started. As far as beach stuff, everything you need provided!!! We were thankful for the rolling cart which made our short walk to the beach enjoyable. We also enjoyed morning bikes rides. Kudos to whomoever maintains the property when the owners are not there. The Owners clearly thought of everything, it was perfect!!! You literally just need to bring your clothes, a fun and happy attitude and relax at I Wish You Were Here."

  • Amazing beach house

    "Anna's beach retreat was a delight! The house was so roomy and comfortably fit our whole group. It was stocked with balls to play out in the backyard or on the beach. Along with having multiple TV's in common spaces it had TV's in some of the rooms. It had plenty of storage space in the kitchen, as well as coming with all the kitchen appliances you could ever need. The pool and hot tub were a delight, and even had a plug out there so you could plug in speakers to play music. It was great how the porch connected all three stories, so we could walk out onto the porch from our bathrooms and go straight to the pool. The top level back porch was also screened in, so it prevented bugs from getting in. The front porches were also great, with a hammock and chairs for reading. The house was stocked with a great selection of DVD's and games for a rainy day. There were multiple A/C units, so you could adjust the temperature for different parts of the house. There was a great outdoor shower as well to wash sand off before getting in the pool. Sharon was so kind, attentive and quick to pick up my calls about anything. Lastly, it had what is paramount to every good beach house, a super short walk to the beach. It was great staying here and we had everything we needed for an awesome week. I would recommend Anna's Beach Retreat to anyone that asked! And the owners are amazing!!!!"

  • See World

    "See World was a perfect house for my family of 14. This was our first year renting a vacation home for the entire family and we would certainly do it again. The house was perfect with the 6 bedrooms and 61/2 baths. But what really made the house perfect was the indoor/outdoor pool, the hot tube and sauna. We had 2 rainy days but we could still swim and enjoy spa living. The Hoffmanns are great owners and when there was a small snafu they took care of it right away and solved the issue to our satisfaction. I would definitely rent this home again and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. Thank you Hoffmanns."

  • Great property and location!

    "First visit to the Outer Banks and first time renting a house with my family. Was nervous, but on arrival the house was ready, clean, and comfortable. We loved the proximity to the beach and the ability to walk to restaurants. The house was kid friendly. My wife and I would definitely return to this house next time we visit the Outer Banks."
