Mother Ocean welcomes you to the sweet Outer Banks after the never ending tribute to Father Time! “Ruggles” is the crème de la crème of Oceanfront living harmonized with superb views, a private boarded walkway and direct beach access. Feel like royalty with expanded sun decks, inviting hammock and bubbling hot tub to remedy tense muscles and everyday stresses.
Further melt away stress with the boost of cathedral ceilings, skylights, the tender ambiance of a stone fireplace and upstairs loft with extensive reading library. The material pleasures of a fully stocked kitchen, custom counters and master bath welcome each day and give you the vacation you have deserved and expect!
Keep a sharp eye out to snap that candid shot of your neighbors, the wild roaming Spanish Mustangs of Corolla while combing the beach looking for that perfect shell to add to the collection. Historical attractions will astonish the whole family such as the Corolla Lighthouse and Whalehead Club while evenings come alive with exceptional cuisine, live music each night at local venues and sun lit strolls along the surf.

Ruggles home

Warren W. from Purcellville, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Sep, 2017
Our third year at this home. It is a favorite of ours. It is one of the few modestly sized homes in the area. It is really just the right size for the two of us. It sleeps eight so a young family would be very comfortable there as well. We love the quiet and open atmosphere. It has everything we ask for. I have been vacationing at the outer banks since the early 70's. I know what works well for me and the Ruggles provide it with no excuses. This is a one owner home since new. It is very well cared for. The owners want to make each renter happy with their experience.

Manager Response

Warren, Thank you for the elegant review of our property WH1019-RUGGLES. We love the location of this home and the set up. The home owners of this home pride themselves in making sure their guest have the best time and are very comfortable during their stay here on the Outer Banks. We love to hear from our repeat renters. We look forward to seeing you and your family in 2018. Thank you, Carolina Shores

Our favorite beach and fond memories

A Guest from Concord, NH recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2017
As former Whalehead property owners we know the area well and witnessed many giant houses constructed over the years. None of those McMansions captures the true essence of a beach vacation like the Ruggles home. Comfortable and functional furnishings, a well stocked kitchen, books, games, barbecue grill, hammock and situated right on the beach. Perfect! If you want to spend your beach vacation indoors playing pool or video games, then this is not the home for you. If you want to spend your time on the beach and connect with your family around the dinner table in the evening, then this is the perfect home. We will be back.

A family gathering

A Guest from Fountain Hills, AZ recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in May, 2017
This house was just right for our family's comings and goings. Great location, loved the access to the beach, loved the hot tub, great floor plan. House was clean and kitchen well appointed. Grocery stores close by but still had that residential feeling. We've stayed in other parts of the OBX several times and would choose this house and location again. We did day excursions to Jockey's Ridge, The Wright Bros. Memorial, climbed Hatteras Light House, went to Currituck Light House, went on a Wild Mustang tour, took the ferry to Ocracoke Island.

Perfect OBX Beach House

A Guest from North Reading, MA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2016
Ruggles was the perfect house for our beach vacation. This house was comfortable, clean, and very well equipped. We appreciated the private beach walkway, hot tub, hammock, beach chairs and umbrella and all the great books found throughout the house. The location was ideal, a quiet residential neighborhood, just a short drive to shopping, restaurants, minigolf, etc.... We had a wonderful time exploring the OBX, seeing the wild horses, watching many dolphins in the ocean, and just relaxing on the beach. We would highly recommend Ruggles if you are planning a trip to the Outer Banks.

Manager Response

Dear Susan, Thank you for your positive comments. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! I hope your next stay is just around the corner. Call us if there is anything we can assist you with.

This was one of the best vacation rental experiences we've ever had. Perfect for our family of 6. It was right on the beach and very convenient for those with small kids. The rental was clean and updated with everything we needed during our stay. We would definitely come back if we go to OBX again!

Have Been Staying at Ruggles for 21+ years...

Terry S. from Silver Spring, MD recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2016
Ruggles is a gorgeous beachfront oasis perfect for one family (sleeps 8-10, but comfortably 6-8 is more reasonable)--the owners keep the house up to date, adding new amenities every year--this year it was a new, beautiful kitchen. The beach is easily accessible via the wooden walkway--couldn't ask for anything quickly feels like home--light, bright, gorgeous views and everything you need to make your beach vacation wonderful~

This house is perfect for a family vacation. It has plenty of room for a family of 6. It was my wife and I and we loved it. The house has a lot of amenities including almost new kitchen, hot tub, 2 tier deck, hammock, and most important STEPS to the beach. Fantastic property and location, we will be back.

Ruggles

Barry C. from recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Sep, 2015
This place is perfectly sized for a couple or two. Excellent location. Great outdoor space. Could do without all the notes taped all over the house providing instruction (if you feel compelled to provide "helpful" instruction, how about a book that guests can refer to? having notes everywhere takes away from relaxation). Think it'd be better to have the TV in the living room as opposed to a contained den. Also why not just include linens and adjust the price accordingly?

Manager Response

Dear Barry, Thank you for taking the time to review RUGGLES! We sincerely take your comments and suggestions to heart and will share them with staff and the homeowner. Thanks you again for being our guest and we look forward to seeing you again in 2016.

Wonderful week with wonderful women!

A Guest from 48197, Ypsilanti recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2015
The property is exactly as described and the location was really perfect. Close enough to jog or bike to shops in Corolla, private steps to access the ocean right over the dunes. Everything was clean and well-maintained with information provided to help us throughout the week with logistics like garbage and recycling days and how to use the hot tub. Would consider staying here again in the future, especially to enjoy Historic Corolla's bookstore, kayaking, Whalehead Club, smoothie shop, etc.

Great family vacation

Beau B. from Berlin, CT recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2015
This was our first trip to the Outer Banks and it was great. The house was perfect for our family and had everything we needed from baby monitors, pack and play, highchair and much more. The views were gorgeous and the location was perfect. We would definitely come back here again. The streets were perfect for morning runs and the kids loved the ice cream truck coming by too. The pictures were spot on and it was very clean when we arrived. We had to call because of a clogged tub and they came right away to fix. The horse tours were a lot of fun and having shops close by was a nice break from the beach too. We can't wait to plan our next trip to the Outer Banks and we will definitely come back to Corolla.

Dear Beau, Thank you for the stunning review of RUGGLES! We agree, this is a super OBX vacation home that everyone just falls in love with. The homeowners will be delighted with your comments and we certainly look forward to your return stay next summer.
