Description

Wander no further in search of the perfect vacation retreat, none can surpass “Spyglass”.
SPYGLASS allows you to experience firsthand one of the 10 best undiscovered beaches on the East Coast, complete with open and spacious reverse floor plan you will marvel over outstanding ocean and Corolla Lighthouse views! Don’t forget to keep a sharp eye for the wild roaming Spanish Mustangs of Carova.
Amenities galore! Beautiful, contemporary décor and attention to detail are not in short supply with 5 spacious bedrooms, (2 are Master Suites with private balconies!) and just steps away from the Atlantic with direct beach access. Challenge one another to a healthy yet competitive game of foosball in the recreation room while listening to your favorite tunes on surround sound. Or, “take it outside” for gladiator games from your volleyball court, basketball goal and horseshoes.
Calming and inviting more your speed? Immerse your concerns away in the 8 person HOT TUB and very unique Gunite 15 x 25’ PRIVATE POOL (heating optional).
A fully equipped kitchen with Kitchen-Aid ice-maker, Jenn-Air stove and breakfast bar will awaken the inner culinary creator! Therapeutic sounds of the surf will lure you to extensive covered and sun decks with furniture.
The impact of this Semi-Oceanfront treasure will provide bragging rights and keep you coming back for years to come.

One of the reasons so many vacationers flock to the Outer Banks is the thrill of driving on the beach, a rare privilege that few East Coast beach vacation destinations can offer. On the Outer Banks, beach driving enthusiasts will find miles of shoreline to explore, from the uninhabited shoreline along the solely 4WD accessible beaches of Carova, north of Corolla. Homeowner provides parking permit for our incredible 4WD area!

Outer Banks is beautiful. House is spacious and relatively clean. Great location. Volleyball is useless, sand was full of rocks and pebbles. Cockroaches were seen crawling in the morning the the kitchen and bathroom at least 2-3 times. Bedding needs to be upgraded in the 4th and 5th BR. Mattresses were terrible. OPINION: DO NOT UNDERESTERMATE THE VALUE OF COMFORTABLE BEDDING.<br/>ALLOW STAFF IN THE RENTAL OFFICE TO USE COMMON SENSE WHEN DEALING WITH RENTER. "WE WERE TOLD WE ARE NOT ALLOWED AND WILL GET IN TROUBLE" IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE RESPONSE TO AN ISSUE.

Wonderful vacation!

This is a beautiful house in a great location. All levels easy to navigate and we loved the unusual layout. Easy, quick walk to the beach. Lots of decks and a great pool. <br/>Two cons. There is only one bathroom for three bedrooms on second level, which made for some difficulties. Also, kitchen appliances could use some updating. <br/>The owners or their kids went crazy with a label maker, but that just made us laugh!<br/>Overall, a terrific experience and great house.

We did not actually stay due to COVID 19. We live in New York and one month prior to our stay North Carolina was listed as a state where we would need to quarantine for 14 days after a visit. We reached out to Carolina Shores and we were told we could likely do a transfer to the following year. I followed up several times to see if the transfer had been approved or not, mostly receiving no response from Carolina Shores. The day before we were to check in we were informed the homeowner had not approved a transfer and we either needed to come or loose all of our money. As a 14 day quarantine was not possible for us following our trip we lost all of our money. The office was ABSOLUTELY not helpful. DO NOT RENT FROM THEM UNLESS YOU WANT PROBLEMS!

Working with the rental company was very seamless. This was our second year staying at Spyglass. Plenty of room for two families. We love the location, if you can’t be ocean front then this home is the next best thing. It also is very isolated from any traffic which makes fire peaceful mornings and evenings on the decks.<br/><br/>Only negative - I wish the beds would be made upon arrival. It’s a little hassle to have to make your beds after a kind drive. This year the linens from previous rental stayed under the carport all week.

House and location were excellent. Property management could do a bit more for set up. Linens left in bins in driveway, beds not made. Several waste baskets had garbage in them, "cleaning" people must not check. House was basically clean but I can do that on my own. If you're paying for a service it should be spotless.

In two weeks we will have been married one year. My husband had been to OBX before but this was my first experience and our blended families first experience all together. We absolutely fell in love with Spyglass! It was just right for us. The kids had so much fun in the pool and hot tub. Beach access was ideal!!! We would love to book it again and next time we’ll know to bring tp and soap for the bathrooms and paper towels. Our master suite was perfect ❤️❤️. Such a great location! We have to figure out our schedule and hope to book Spyglass again next year. We highly recommend it!!

The house and rental company exceeded our expectations. The house was clean, functional and so close to the beach. It was very easy to feel comfortable in this house. The location to the beach was excellent without having to pay the price of a beachfront house. The beach access was close enuggt that you could run back to the house conveniently if needed without it being a large effort. Because the be a h access is private and has no parking, it was easy to find space on the beach for tents, chairs, etc.

The home was lovely! Perfect location. Everything you needed was provided. It was clean and well maintained. Just out the door and you were on the beach. I will definitely come back here again. A few more dish towels would have been good but that's literally the only thing even close to a complaint that I could have! It was perfect. There were 8 of us staying and there was plenty of room! I highly recommend this vacation rental!!
Dear Michelle

We had a wonderful Fall beach week. SpyGlass met all of our expectations. The kitchen was well equipped and the ice machine was an added plus. Wonderful view of the beach. We have already booked this house for next year!
Dear Sharon,
Thank you for your wonderful review of Spyglass! You are right, this is a great property. The homeowners really go the extra mile making this property so welcoming. We'll see you next summer.

Perfect location, perfect size and layout

Stayed at Spyglass in August with extended family and it was a great house to rent for more than one family. There is a master suite on its own level along with another master suite on a slightly lower level of its own - very comfortable and allowed for a bit of privacy. Kitchen was more than adequate in terms of plates, cutlery and glasses. Location was the best, just a very short walk to beach access. Best to bring EVERYTHING when it comes to toilet paper (not a single roll in the entire house upon arrival), tea towels and soap. Carolina Shores responded promptly to any of our questions.

Pleasant Stay

We enjoyed our stay at SpyGlass. It was very clean upon arrival and we appreciated the layout for our situation. There were a couple of issues such as the pool cleaners not showing which normally would not be an issue but there was sand in the pool from the storm. But other than that it was enjoyable. We've been visiting OBX for 4 years now with another family and this is the first house that we would consider staying at again.
