  • 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."

  • Excellent family vacation

    "Pebble Beach is perfect for large family vacations. The house has plenty of space while still maintaining private bedrooms and bathrooms. The kids loved the pool with slide and the parents liked the short walk to the beach. The owner was great to work with also. Corolla is simply the best place for a family vacation."

  • Awesome house for the money

    "This is our 2nd year staying here. Absolutely loved it and the location! Love the new exterior paint color. Close to beach; although we did bring wagons this year, which helped tremendously with having to bring 5 chairs, boogie boards, skim boards, not to mention the pop-up tent for shade. We rented bikes and shopping was close enough for our teen boys to ride to. The boys especially enjoyed the mid-deck, hanging their hammocks and even sleeping outside a few nights. The pool was enjoyed each day, especially after returning from the beach. I don't think this home lacked anything. Appreciated beds being made when we arrived, especially after the 12-hour drive. I thought the "starter supply" basket, as well as TP and soap in all bathrooms, were nice touches. Would definitely return."

    "Another great week in OBX.this is a great beach house. Best by far .its our second time staying here . Can't say enough about what a great house this is. Our group was 10 adults and 5 children 3 eight year olds and 2 four year olds. House was more than big enough for all so many beach chairs and a cart to take them to the beach. All the decks had more than enough chairs as did the pool. Had an issue with the hot tub an within a hour of texting the owner someone was at the house fixing it. Very clean inside and outside.Liked that 4 of the bedrooms where masters with King and queen size beds . This house has all you could want in a beach house . Highly recommend this house ! Can't wait till next time !"
