We celebrated my husbands 60th surprise birthday party at this location. This home is decorated beautifully and very warm and welcoming. It is located in a great area, close to retail shops / food stores / tours to see the wild horses / dining. It supplies you with every household item you could possibly need during your stay. The dining area is big enough to accommodate 20 people, if you do have 20 people staying there. Our family enjoyed the spiral staircase leading up to the top landing to fly kites, and we were higher then all the other homes, great also for seeing the sunset. The heated pool was an asset along with the tiki bar to just sit back and relax. The beach is truly with in walking distance to the home, even for the younger ones. No complaints from my 5 and 7 year old great nieces. The homeowners Jim and Linda were very nice to discuss the rental details with me.. A huge decision on why this home was decided on over others was because Jim and Linda were kind enough to let us stay to the following Sunday because family from the Northeast were coming more towards the end of the week and we did not have to rush and check out Saturday at 9AM. Our family is already seriously thinking about making this an annual event every summer and have already discussed with me about renting this home again next year. It truly is a great get away.

Family Vacation Memories

October 4, 2014

This has been our third trip back. We love this house, it has the perfect location. Short walk to the beach and shopping near by. Having the in ground pool, hot tub and volleyball court really make it the place for our family to gather and have a great time. Changes have been that just make it an even better stay. As the parents of the large group we bring it is just great having everyone all together comfortably to make vacation memories that last a lifetime. Highly recommend this house as a getaway.

Terrapin Station Fun

September 29, 2014

The owners have made a few enhancements to this vacation home. We love everything that they have done. Almost every bedroom has its own bathroom! The house and its location offers everything that we needed for a fun filled easy vacation. The pool, hot tub and volley ball court is awesome. All within walking distance of the beach offers endless options. The house and landscaping are both beautifully maintained. This was our third year here and we will be back!

Family Reunion-50th birthday

September 8, 2014

My family and I decided to try something new this year for vacation. My youngest brother lives over in Elizabeth City and his 50th birthday happened to be in the middle of the week. So we invited him to stay with us and make it a real family vacation/reunion. We had a wonderful time, the house was fully suited to all of our needs. The children 1 1/2, 4, 6 and 10 had a great time in the house as well as outside in the pool and volleyball court. We had left to go to Busch Gardens one day while we were there, and if I hadn't already ordered tickets, I would've just stayed at the house. I took pictures of the sights showing from the crows' nest, and it certainly wasn't hard to decide that I want to stay here next year as well. I was sitting at the poolside one afternoon watching the grandchildren in the pool and noticed movement behind me. Mind you I was sitting back straight to the fence, there was a fox passing through the property on the other side of the fence. Real close to nature. I went and watched for the horses, and spotted four. A real wonderful experience for the children. If I ever hit the Powerball, maybe I'll ask the owners if they would like to sell. My family really enjoyed themselves and we can't wait until next August. To the owners of Terraphin Station: A job well done!!!

2014 family vacation

August 4, 2014

our extended family of 22 stayed at this property Julu of this year for 1 week we had plenty of room and the house was great. The kids loved the pool and the pool table, The beach path is great and so is the beach. We had problems with the clothes dryer and a toilet, both were promptly addressed by the rental agency. The only complaint I had was there were not enough bath towels and no kitchen towels at all, also the house has 2 dish washers but only 1 full size fridge.

Jim & Lynda Sillers

Owner's reply:

Note: In addition to the full size refrigerator that's in the kitchen, there is an apartment size refrigerator on the 1st level and a mini fridge at the Tiki bar. There is also a 50 pound per day stand alone ice machine on the 1st level.

Terrapin Station is Awesome!

October 6, 2013

We stayed at Terrapin Station for two weeks. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. The kitchen had all the pots, pans, dishes that you need for a very large family. Two tables had plenty of seating room as well. TV's in every room was nice as many of us watched the news when we went to bed and got up in the morning. The pool and hot tub were a big hit. We spent time in both everyday. You are a very short walking distance to the beach. There are a lot of stairs in the house so I would not recommend it for elderly couples that you might bring with us. All of us in our 50's and 60's were fine. There is a lot of shopping and great restaurants nearby.

Beautiful House!!

September 16, 2013

We loved our week at Terrapin Station! We had 15 people staying including 2 babies but there was always a place to sneak away for some quiet time. The house was well maintained and we would all gather in the pool area each afternoon for games, drinks, etc. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could need to prepare huge meals. I would highly recommend this house to any large group for a fabulous vacation.




Wonderful family reunion spot

November 28, 2011

I have stayed in this house more than once. With 9 bedrooms and lots of seating and activity areas, this house is tailor made for a family reunion. Everyone can be together in the great room on the top level or you can spead out in all the great little nooks in this house. I love the small sitting room in a split level at the top of the house for reading and my morning yoga practice. The crows nest on top of the house is great for star gazing. We always bring our bikes and ride to the Corolla lighthouse daily. The neighborhood has long quiet streets that run parallel to the beach that are great for biking, jogging and walking. The North Carolina pulled pork at the stand by the lighthouse is a must for all visitors. Route 12 Restaurant, in the TimBuck II shopping center, has wonderful service, delicious food and a great value.

Amazing house!

January 9, 2010

My friends and I stayed at this house in early November. The house is conveniently located--only a mile or so away from the grocery store, shops, and restaurants. The house itself is HUGE with tons of bedrooms. Some other highlights of the house include a convenient wet bar in the basement, an outdoor tiki bar with a stereo system, and wrap around decks on each level. Since it was November, we did not use the pool but the hot tub was great! Additionally, the house was spotless when we arrived. The kitchen was very spacious and well stocked with kitchenware. For the colder days, the foozball and pool tables got plenty of use. On the warmer days, we walked down to the beach which was only a couple minutes walk away. You can also see beautiful views of the beach from the houses' crows nest. Overall, we really enjoyed this house and its amenities. We will definitely book this house again next time we go down to OBX!

Awesome Family Vacation Spot

January 5, 2010

I had never experienced the outer banks before, and had a fantastic experience here at Terrapin Station! I brought my family and my Aunt's family here for a special vacation and was absolutely thrilled with the accommodations. In addition to my parents, I have 4 siblings and there are 4 people in my Aunt's family as well. All 11 people were quite comfortable and had plenty of space in this enormous house (very important for large families) with room to spare. We used the volleyball court, horseshoe pit, and swimming pool daily. The Crow's next provided phenomenal sunrise/sunset views every day and we had plenty of beach time since it's just a short, 5 minute walk to the ocean from the house. The only day it rained we stayed indoors where my uncle demonstrated his New York City upbringing masterfully on the pool table. We even brought our Wii which was easily hooked up to the television. We opted to cook dinners for each other rather than go out to restaurants and so at night, we would pair off, and 2 different people would prepare the meal. In Food Network Showdown style, everyone tested the limits of their culinary abilities, and we found everything we needed in the huge kitchen for the production. We are definitely going to come back in the future.

We had a great time. The home is located in a perfect spot. Walking distance to beach and shopping. Few minor things like the internet not working till the middle of the week, a leaky pool, and very low shower pressure were the only thing that kept it from being 5 stars. We most likely will return.

This house has everything!

June 15, 2009

Terrapin Landing was very well equipped. Our group of 10 adults and 6 small kids was very comfortable. The pool was a great place to kick back and relax and listen to your favorite tunes. The best part was it was only a short walk to the beach. We will stay here again next year.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Terrapin Station. The house met all our needs, the pool and basketball court were favorites and the house is a short walk to the beach. We even saw dolphins on a few days. The hammock on the second floor deck was a favorite spot for everyone - you should add a picture of the hammock to the!
-- Lisa, Margate, NJ

The Terrapin Station was very comfy and spacious for our 24 person group. Everyone was able to join in the living ro for family time and later everyone could escape to their own little nook for private time. The home had an abundance of supplies both for beach and kitchen- which is great because you don't have to worry about packing all the little things. One suggestion- bring your own toilet paper- with all those bathrooms you'll be in need. Overall, fantastic place - and I will be visiting again soon hopefully.

-- Ahlee, silve spring, Maryland

We had a lovely time at Terrapin Station. The house accommodated all 19 of us. ( age range from 2-60). Pool and Tiki bar were great. Close to beach and grocery store. The downstair fridge was not very cold, an ice maker would be great help. Over all it was a great time and loved the house, would definitely recommend!

-- Lynn, Chardon, OH

Terrapin Station was fantastic. This was the first time for my family to get together in 5 1/2 years. We had never done a vacation like this before. The house was equiped with everything we needed. There were puzzles that everyone got invalved with. With all the TV's you could watch what you wanted. It was clean and fitted our needs very well. The distance to the beach was short, and we went to the beach for the sun rise most mornings. We felt safe in the neighborhood with our walks at any time of day. They children loved the pool they were in it every day. We will be back again to Terrapin Station. Elan was great to work with and they made it very easy to do.

-- Judi, Vero Beach, FL

Plenty of quiet places, even for a large family

Our Family Vacation At The Outer Banks Terrapin Station Home. We were very excited to spend a week in the Outer Banks and were not disappointed upon arrival. Our group of 9 adults and 3 children were very comfortable in the home. It was roomy and full of lovely areas for everyone to be together or sneak away to read a book. We all enjoyed the multiple levels of decking and the fun crow's nest with the amazing views. The breakfast nook was the place we spent alot of time doing jigsaw puzzles and playing games. Thanks to the additional large dining room table and kitchen island, we were able to leave them laying out. Speaking of games, the game room with the pool table was awesome! We really loved the radio that was connected to the speakers outside. Nothing can beat floating on a raft listening to your favorite tunes! By far, the biggest hit for everyone was the pool! We used it everyday without fail. It was very short and convenient walk from the house to the beach. We spent mornings there, came home for lunch, and spent afternoons in the pool. The hot tub and volleyball court were also wonderful amenities. There was alot of night time soaking and relaxing! The outdoor facilities were also very convenient especially with small children. The entire family had such a wonderful time we are planning to return for another week this year. Overall, this was a very enjoyable vacation home with a boat load of extra's.
