Description of the Corolla vacation home rental
Come stay in our home for a wonderful vacation on the North Carolina 'Shore; Leave' all the stress behind.

Shore Leave is a clean, well maintained home located in the Monteray Shores community of Corolla. Corolla is a northern OBX community away from much of the crowds and commercialization of the towns further south. Everything you need is here in Corolla just without the traffic, and long lines. Our house provides all the comforts of home with all the conveniences of a great beach community.

The distance between the ocean water and sound water is approximately a quarter of a mile wide at Monteray Shores. This gorgeous and unique location allows quick access to ocean surfing and swimming as easily as sound side kite surfing, jet-skiing, kayaking, and other still water sports. You have quick access to the best of both worlds! The wild horses are just a few miles north in the 4x4 area.

Enjoy the sun and shade decks for relaxation. Bike or walk to the Monetray Shores amenities, restaurants, farmer's market, coffee shops, ice cream, shopping, miniature golf etc. Its all close by.

Bring your kayaks and paddle boards to take advantage of the Monteray Shores ramp access to the Currituck Sound. Plan for a romantic glass of wine watching the sunset in the gazebo on the Monteray Shores Pier or perhaps a cup of coffee and fun morning walk to go crabbing with the kids.

Take the kids to the club house for age appropriate activities or to hangout at the community swimming pool while you relax with that book you have been waiting to read.

A stay at Shore Leave will give you not only great opportunities for the beach vacation you dream of but also allow you to continue that exercise regimen you work so hard at or perhaps kick-start a new one with the safe community streets to walk/run/bike on, the clubhouse fitness center and the various tennis and basketball courts.

The house features 3 levels with various living areas on the top two floors.

Ground Level:

Area Information
The Outer Banks of North Carolina are as thick in legend as they are engulfed in beauty. Modern flight was conquered in Kitty Hawk by the Wright brothers.

Blackbeard the pirate met his demise along the coast. Seven lighthouses guided ships, sometimes unsuccessfully,through the "graveyard of the Atlantic."

Today, the Outer Banks, a series of barrier islands that meander along 120 miles of coastline between Corolla in the north, to Ocracoke in the south, is developing its legend as one of the most beautiful vacation areas in the country.

Visitors have their choice of sun bathing, fishing, golfing, swimming, bird watching, scuba diving, sailing, and tons of other active pursuits.

great house!

June 22, 2015

We couldn't have been more pleased. ...When we finally arrived after the long ride, the house was clean, relaxing and just like the pictures. The clubhouse was a nice bonus, as well was the short ride to the beach and stores. Jim the owner was very nice to check on how everything was going and offered any help with just a phone call. I recommend this house to anyone and hope to have the opportunity to stay there again.

Our family stayed in this lovely home and we had such a great experience. We had 4 teenage boys and 3 adults. The house was perfect for all of us. The owners were so nice and gave exceptional detail for the house and the area. I would definitely recommend staying at Shore Leave for a nice relaxing vacation with wonderful accommodations.

Excellent Owners to Work with

February 3, 2015

In the essence of full disclosure, we did not stay at this particular property, read on please. After considering multiple properties in Corolla, my wife and I elected to stay at this particular property. As the searched continued, we discovered plenty of properties to choose from in Corolla. The main reasons my wife and I selected this particular property were twofold; first of all, the property has gone through an interior cosmetic face lift, neutral colors, attractive art work and has the look and feel of a true beach home. Secondly, and more importantly, the proud owners are/were very responsive to addressing many questions and made us feel like guests vs. renters. They were never rushed nor seemed bothered by multiple communications and sending additional pictures we requested. And finally, we did not lease the premises; after the security deposit was tendered, I had a medical condition that required immediate treatment forcing us to cancel. The owners could not have been more gracious. They cheerfully refunded the deposit without question and wished me a speedy recovery. I find this type of ownership to be the exception more than the rule and will not hesitate to lease this property sometime this spring. So for all of you considering properties in Shore Leave/Corolla, I think you will be well served to consider this property. You are not just leasing the home, but you are engaging in a business transaction with very ethical and warm business partners

Quiet retreat-perfect for families!

July 18, 2013

We had 3 generations sharing the beautiful home and it was just right for us. Shops, the club house, and the beach were close but the house was on a quiet cul-de-sac so it felt peaceful and private. The kitchen was very well-equipped and well laid-out. The amenities such as laundry, outdoor shower, grill, etc all came in very handy. We had a great vacation and were glad we chose Shore Leave! Corolla was perfect for us- not a lot of traffic or crowds.

Hooked on OBX.

July 4, 2011

Our first trip to OBX and it was amazing. The house was very clean and well kept. In a lovely neighborhood and all of the staff at Monteray Shores was very polite and helpful Had a minor issue upon arrival, but the owner did his best to see that it was resolved ASAP. Only complaint was the traffic in and out, but there's nothing we can do about that and it was well worth it. We have always done Myrtle Beach in the summer, but enjoyed the relaxation and peace in Corolla, I am now a convert. Wonderful memories for myself and my family.

Great family time

June 17, 2009

Shore Leave was a great experience for our family. The owner was wonderful to work with. the house was beautiful, very clean and very comfortable. the location of Corolla may take longer to get to, but it is much less commercial and more relaxed than places south. The Monterey Shores clubhouse is very nice and their staff was friendly and accomodating. Beach access was close and the beach was very clean and quiet. We look forward to returning.

Rick, Thank you for sharing your wonderful home. The location is great for seeing all of the Outer Banks. The Club House was a nice added benefit since my daughter and I were able to play tennis. We also enjoyed the hot tub. We had a very relaxing and fun filled week. Cathy

Wonderful time

August 25, 2008

Hi Rick, I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time down at your rental home in Corolla NC. I have to say I wasn't sure about doing everything on the internet, but everything went great. You can tell when you walked into your place it smelled and looked clean. We had a great time there. It was big enough for two separate family there. We really enjoy ourselves. Thank you so much.

Our Vacation

June 18, 2008

We had a great time staying at your house. It was very clean and comfortable. The house was very roomy for our family. We have 6 kids under the age of 14 and we allowed our oldest to bring a friend this year. Also, my sister and her husband joined us. The living area was large enough for all of us to hang out together. The adults enjoyed the quiet evenings in the hot tub after the kids were settled in with a movie. The clubhouse was a great added feature. It was nice to take the older kids to the pool while the little ones napped in the afternoon. And the little ones participated in the activities they offered in the mornings while the older ones were still sleeping! It was nice to be close to the grocery store and other shops and activites without feeling like we were in an overcrowded tourist town. Overall we had a blast and a vacation that we will never forget! Thank you so much!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Hi Rick-

The next time we go to the northern beaches, we will stay at your house again if it's available. We truly loved it. Usually Karen and I go to Hatteras or Ocracoke, however, since they have very convenient airports, (too bad Pine Island is private) and our kids are pretty much grown.
Several of our old friends go to Corolla at the same week every year or two, and we like to see them.


Fred H.

Hi Rick,

I dont know where to begin. My family would like to thank you so much for letting us use your wonderful home. It was by far the nicest most relaxing place we ever stayed in. Everything was perfect, wish we had more time it went by way to fast.

We hope to visit again some day!!

Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Thanks again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is your pet policy?
A: While we ourselves are pet lovers and do occasionally bring our small, well trained dog with us to our home in Corolla, experience has taught us that not everyone is as mindful of their pets behavior.

Based on past experience, we are not currently accepting rentals with pets.
Q: Can you walk to the beach from the house?
A: We do walk to the beach. But we aren't walking with little ones or carrying much more than a chair on our back.

If you like to take a lot with you for your time on the sand, or have little ones who might be a little cranky on the walk back, you may find it easier to drive and park at one of the public lots closer to the sand.

It is an easy 1/2 mile walk to the beach or a traffic free 1 mile drive to a free lot right at the beach.
Q: Do you offer early check-in?
A: We do not offer early check-in because our home is cleaned extensively between rentals and it takes time to provide the super clean home guests at Shore Leave have come to expect.

You can however arrive early and check-in at the clubhouse, use the facilities there and get your vacation started relaxing poolside after your drive.

The care takers of our home go well beyond what you will see at the typical vacation home. Every room of our home is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each guest departs; much more than a quick wipe, mop, sweep and toss.

The caretakers are wonderful folks who want to make sure that each of our guests have a great experience visiting the Outer Banks.
