Another Fantastic Thanksgiving !

Thank you again Ed! We had another wonderful family Thanksgiving at your place. Thank you for sharing it. The view is so worth the drive and the house is clean and comfortable. We all love the wildlife Especially the fox! Hope to come back soon !

Great week on the sound!
October 10, 2014
I generally am not one to leave reviews, but everything about our vacation at this lovely home this past week was above my/our expectations. From the beautiful views, the kayaks, the peaceful location, wild horses on the beach only moments away and the ability to bring our dog, it doesn't get much better than this. Ed was more than accommodating in answering my questions and getting back to me quickly. Thank you! I have already spread the word about this gem of a home to my colleagues. Now I just have to get my next reservation in before they do! Thanks again.

We had the joy of spending a week on the Outer Banks at the end of September. Although the weather did not cooperate, we found plenty of things to do. We visited the light houses, the Aquarium and Festival Park on Roanoke Island. The Wild Horse Tour was exciting and fun. Our vacation home was roomy and in a great location overlooking the sound. Due to it being the end of the season a few of the Monterey Shores Resort amenities were not available to us during the week and the pool closed at the end of the week. The ocean was only 5 minutes away and we took advantage of it when the weather was nice. We were close by to grocery stores, restaurants and the gas station. The complex provided a great place to walk in the morning.
Many thanks Steven for your kind review. We had a couple of challenges during your week such as an empty gas grill canister so thanks for pitching in to pick up a new one around the corner. I am glad that the great views, roomy quarters, walkable community and unique Outer Banks' activities left you feeling good about your visit. Come back any time. Ed

Awesome vacation home!!!
September 11, 2014
Absolutely loved this house!! My husband and I were fortunate enough to enjoy a week at this beautiful home on the Currituck Sound in Corrolla. First, the pictures do not do it justice! Each room is tastefully decorated and makes you feel 'at home'.The house is just that--- a real HOME away from home, with everything that you need to enjoy a vacation without worrying whether you 'brought everything'. From crab pickers to beach mats, this house has it all! Bicycles, a rowboat, kayaks, a very private pier to fish from, nice private decks and so much more! I especially enjoyed the jacuzzi tub after long days of shopping and walking the beach! The house is on a cul-de-sac sort of street, and once you're inside it feels like you're away from everything! Just a short drive to Whalehead Beach and the Currituck wild horse refuge, too( which was a favorite of mine)! Just be sure that you stay on the 'roadway' (tire tracks) on the beach if you drive...saw a couple of 4WD vehicles get stuck! The two grocery stores that are nearby (Food Lion and Harris Teeter's) are VERY reasonable, too, unlike most grocery stores around tourist towns. I was very, very satisfied with the vacation home Ed offers to share and can't wait to go back again! Loved it!

great vacation! !

Great house! ! Just make sure you follow directions for driving on the beach. If you get stuck the price for getting you out is ridiculous. 185.00 for 5 min of work. House a little far from the beach. Any problems were taken care of immediately. And owners we got immediate attention for problems. Great vacation!!

This home had it all. Everyday we went out on the water in the kayaks. We caught crabs and catfish in the sound. Short drive to the ocean. Foxes, cats, raccoons, deer, and turtles were just some of the wildlife that visited the back yard. Terrific location, great accommodations. When we first walked into the home my fiance was pleasantly surprised that the air conditioner had been left on for us. One of the best vacations we have had to date.
Wonderful vacation week
June 23, 2013
We had a wonderful time at this property. We loved being on the sound side of OBX and it was a couple minute drive across to the ocean. We have 4 kids and this house easily accomodated our family with a set of grandparents. There are beautiful sunsets that are viewed from the house dock. We even used the kayaks to go out and watch them on a few nights. We'll be back!

Lovely Vacation Rental
May 29, 2013
The week was fantastic! Our vacation rental was in a prime location, and it was clean, comfortable, and beautiful as well. Community amenities were a plus, and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and appliances. The spacious rooms have amazing views of the sound, and we enjoyed the surrounding wildlife and birds. Our dog was welcome and our home-owner most congenial. We have used many reality companies for vacation homes in the past, but this rental was simplest and most hassle-free. We will definitely rent this property again. Five Stars!
Thank you Kimberly! After 25 years of having vacation homes in the Outer Banks, I am glad that I have finally figured out what people seem to want and like, and also why they are as fed up with, unfortunately, a few local rental companies as much as they are with their phone/cable company. Please feel free to come back whenever you can!

Gorgeous Sound Views
April 16, 2013
I have vacationed in the Outer Banks many times now and this house has (by far) the prettiest panoramic view of the sound. I told my husband that normally I want to eat out at every restaurant with a waterfront view, but not so much this time, as we had the best view at this house. We enjoyed watching the many cats next door and were amazed that two foxes sat on the dock sunning themselves- totally oblivious to the cats. Just across from this community is a neighborhood with public parking for access to the beach. We really enjoyed walking our dogs out there. The weather was cool, but we still had a good time doing things such as the jeep tour to see the wild horses, the Currituck Lighthouse, museums, etc. We also used the kayaks at the house one day and that was very enjoyable and peaceful on the sound. All in all my family had a good time and will be back. The fees you save versus using a rental agency alone are worth it.

My family and I vacationed at 888 Marsh Landing over the weekend for the second time this year. I still can't get over the view, or how lovely the house is, and it's so reasonably priced. We are already making plans to return!
Lovely Home and Area!!!
October 22, 2012
I highly recommend staying at this house. It is very clean, nicley decorated, Tv's in bedrooms, wi-fi with a house computer and a special compter room with tables/chairs and pull out couch. Lots of big windows and light, patio doors and decks. A really fun house with lots of cool levels to explore!! Bikes, boats, laundry, crab pots and a super easy owner who is soooooooo nice and pleasant!!! This is the first time I have used Vacation Home Rentals by Owner and ED made it super easy to arrange everything!! Thank you, Ed!!!

Relaxing Family Vacation
August 28, 2012
Had a great time at your place! Loved seeing the sun rise on the back decks and viewing the gorgeous sunsets in the evening. My husband and I spent some quality time on your porch swing with our evening cocktails. My dad celebrated his 81st birthday while we were there and was thrilled to be down at the beach with extended family and grandkids. Close proximity to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The owner was great to work with.
Mary Jo. I am glad that you had a special time with your Dad and family. While I always try to get things just right, sometimes the weather or bugs or something won't cooperate. But I am glad that you had a good relaxing week at the beach. I take everyone's suggestions (or praise) to heart both online or offline. Thank you. Ed

Two families with 6 children under 9 years old just finished an amazing week in Corolla. This house was laid out very well for social and private spaces. The access to the sound for crabbing and kayaking is 100 yards out the back door. The beach is a 15 minute walk or 2 minute drive to public parking. The house provided everything we needed and we had a great experience, even on the rainy days. The only suggestion I would make is to bring filtered water. The whole island has a bit of an after taste.

Great Home for a Great Price!

My family recently stayed at this property and we couldn't have been happier. The house was very large and accommodating. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed to cook at home. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. The main living space (open kitchen/living room) was freshly remodeled and huge. It was also well stocked with movies, games and books. The private dock into the sound was very relaxing, and the house is even right next to the even larger public dock, which was one of our favorite spots on the trip. We saw an otter, and turtles swim to the sides like ducks to be fed when you walk out to see the sound. We regularly saw large turtles crossing through the backyard. The outdoor shower was quite refreshing after a long day at the beach. We also loved the decks on every level, giving wonderful views of the sound. The front porch swing was also very charming. The bicycles and kayaks worked perfectly, we made good use of them. The Corolla area was relaxing, but there were still things to do. The grocery store (Food Lion) was about 5 minutes away as well as restaurants and a small movie theater. The house was also about 5 minutes from several wild horse adventures, which was a really cool experience. As a first time visitor to the Outer Banks, and after seeing the rest of the nearby towns Corolla seemed like the best place to stay, a nice balance of peace and quiet and still having enough activities for families to do. 888 Marsh Landing really blew us away. It was such a wonderful and comfortable vacation home, and the price couldn't be beat.
SO MUCH, for so little!!!
June 3, 2012
This was an amazing Memorial Day for our ENTIRE family. In fact we are going back next month! We are amazed that we can spend the week in this GREAT place, with lots of amenities, for such a reasonable total vacation price. The owner is GREAT and very accommodating. We love vacationing and this one can’t be beat!
Nice place to be!

We rented this house for a weekend and had a great time. Plenty of space with all new carpet through out. We saw a racoon and 2 foxes next door. It is quiet and peaceful, but just a few miles from driving on the beach. Corolla has a new 27 hole Putt putt golf and bumper car place that just opened that weekend. Walk out on the private pier at night and you can see more stars than you can imagine. We dealt directly with the owner who was very flexible and accomodating.
April 22, 2012
The house was incredible. So much more than we expected. The owner (Ed) was flexible and easy to work with and we loved having access to the kayaks and bikes on site. The view is memorizing, and the house is spacious and extremely comfortable. My family and I had a wonderful time.
Thank you for the nice review. I have to credit my local helper (Debbie) and her husband (Reese) my handyman and longtime friends on the Outerbanks. They really do help provide a special touch. Plus, I am blessed with such a great house, with great natural beauty and a convenient walkable location for activities and fun too. Please come back to my soundfront home when you get the chance!

This place is a gem! The house is beautiful I especially enjoyed sunsets on the dock! The house is loaded with things to do crab pots, kayaks, and bikes. Not to mention the community center! I would stay here again for sure and the owner is totally nice and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who loves the feeling of home away from home! If your home was in the Outter Banks that is.

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how much we enjoyed our weekend. During our brief visit I witnessed 2 foxes, a turtle laying eggs behind the trash cans, a lovely chorus of frogs each night and stars brighter than I've seen in years. The weather was beautiful and it was all the relaxation we were looking for. We also enjoyed the close shopping and had a blast with bumper cars and go-kart racing. A great community and location!
