  • 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."

  • Happy place

    "It was great to find a pet friendly place to stay. The walk to the ocean was short and easy. We were far enough away from the busyness of Duck, but close to Food Lion and Timbuck II. We found the best places to eat there. Buck's Ice Cream, Bubbie's Burgers and then farmer's market. The house was clean and neat and very well stocked. Bonus of a pool and hot tube completed our great vacation!"

  • Great house but...

    "This was or could be a fantastic house. Had everything we needed and more but as other already said sheets were absolutely horrible. Would definitely being my own. Also gas grill was terrible. Too small for size of house and did not cook well. Also couches in living room not very comfortable. Otherwise nice surprise to find out house had bikes, beach chairs, beach cart, beach umbrellas. Great pool. Close to beach walk."

  • 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."
