  • 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."

  • WHL-14

    "Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Overall, the location is perfect. However, there were cob webs hanging off the lights & window shades, the toilet seat in the master suite was broken, various lights were burnt out including on the microwave & master shower, a gate under the house was off the hinges. Additionally, we were informed by the pool man not to use the hot tub because it trips the circuit breaker."

  • Perfect House, Perfect Vacation

    "We stayed in this beautiful home w/another family just last week. 4 adults and 6 children ages 13-19. This house was perfect for our needs. It would definitely also be a great fit for younger children as well w/all the amenities the owners have provided. It is a short walk to the beach that the kids were able to make on their own if the adults preferred to stay behind at the pool. The kids loved having the bikes for a daily ride through the neighborhood and we all appreciated the wagons to bring the beach chairs (also provided) w/o having to carry them! The beach access is very close to the house and this was the nicest beach I've been to on the East Coast - compared to Myrtle Beach and OC at least. The water was crystal clear and the beaches were clean and soft. It was my first time to OBX and this home and location will definitely bring me back again. I appreciated that shopping was within a 5 minute drive for not only groceries but for souvenirs as well. My husband and I also celebrated our anniversary while there and had a date night at The Oceanfront Grille. The food was AMAZING and the service was great. Thanks to the owner Rodney who graciously came early the morning after a storm caused the TV in the living room to go out as well as a cable box in one of our bedrooms one evening. He replaced both the following morning. I highly recommend this home for its location; spaciousness of the layout; its up to date style & decor; as well as the overall cleanliness of the home. We all loved it!"
