  • 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."

  • A Wonderful Beach Get-Away!!

    "This was a first time VRBO experience for us and was all that our host, Sandra said it would be. From the personable reservation process to the convenient check-in to the very conveniently located seaside villa, we highly recommend this property. This beach villa is well maintained and the access to the pool, club and most importantly, the beach was fantastic. We chose to rent beach chairs, umbrella and cooler that were set up for us in the same spot daily which enabled us an easy stroll to the surf and ready relaxation. Even if you prefer to take your own chairs, etc., the villa has plenty for all. We like to cook in or grill each night and just relax around the table and share stories of the day, etc., so we really appreciated how well-stocked and maintained the kitchen and dining areas were and all the amenities of this updated beach house kitchen. The community has a lot to offer teenage boys above and beyond the sand and surf so our boys took advantage of biking, the well-lit basketball courts and miniature golf as well as the near-by kayaking and golf courses. Our family vacation was blessed by beautiful weather, a wonderful ocean breeze each day and the calmest OBX seas I've ever seen. The villa was a comfortable home away from home and we just wished the week didn't fly by so fast. Thank you Sandra for your gracious hospitality!"

  • Our Family Felt Right at Home

    "Just got home from a week at Funk 'N' Treasure, and felt compelled to share our experience. My wife and I went there with our 2 teenage daughters (ages 15 and 16), and each of them brought 3 friends. Oh, and our dog, Bella, came along too. That's 10 girls (counting Bella) and me. The house itself is lovely. Very spacious and clean. When we were home, we spent a lot of time in the great room and dining room hanging out, playing games, watching movies, etc. The kitchen was spacious with a very large island and is well stocked with pots, pans, plates, and just about anything you would need for cooking. The kids really enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub, and also spent some time playing basketball out front. We were just a short walk from the beach, which was nice and not too crowded. We were located very close to shopping, restaurants, etc. We were within a mile or so of two supermarkets, which was convenient. We were able to stock up the kitchen the night we got there, which worked out great. We were also very close to a Dunkin' Donuts and a Starbucks, which earned me the responsibility of picking up my wife's latte every morning. We rented bicycles for the kids, who were able to ride around independently, which was nice. They would ride over to places like Timbuck II (maybe 0.5 miles away), which has many nice shops, places to eat, go karts, mini golf, etc. They took turns getting their hair braided, getting matching henna tattoos, and other girl stuff. We went over to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse one afternoon, climbed to the top, and enjoyed the view - I definitely recommend doing that if you ever get to Corolla. By the way, our visit was in late March, and we were delighted with the weather - it was in the low-to-mid 70's most days, with one day a bit rainy and cool, and one day up around 80. Could not have asked for better weather! Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention how responsive Carri Funk was. I had a few questions for her before we arrived and a couple while we were there. She responded within minutes (or quicker) each time. Our family really enjoyed staying at Funk 'N' Treasure, and would recommend it to anyone heading to Corolla."

  • Nice home away from home

    "We enjoyed our week at Family Tides. Our families came together and shared the house. Ran in to a few maintenance issues that were resolved within 24 hours. Great pool and hot tub, but landscaping needed love. Easy access to the beach, close to stores."
