Continue the journey back in time for great architecture and a dash of history with a 1920’s Whalehead Club excursion. Behold the grace and splendor of wild roaming Spanish Mustangs shipwrecked and calling Corolla home for more than 400 years.

This was our 2nd year at Ruggles Too. There are many things to love about this property. It is clean and has a welcoming feel. There is beach access across the street but this is “supposed to be” a private walkway for the neighbor house that is to the left (if facing and looking at the front of the house from the street). We have been lucky the last 2 years that our neighbors were nice enough to allow us to use it. If not, you have to use public access which about 4 houses down. Otherwise, the pool is great and the outdoor shower is very nice. The layout of the house works well for our fam. The only thing I wish was that there were some kind of activity like corn hole, horse shoes, ping pong, an arcade game for the kids, darts- anything. There is a volleyball court but...... it’s not something our young kids are in to and the yard/grass I guess doesn’t get cut so it’s not a very welcoming activity. Some sort of activity and keyless entry would be such a huge bonus for this place. Otherwise, the maintenance staff and Carolina shores are very professional and helpful. We had one issue while there that was taken care of quickly. The kitchen is fairly well stocked. It’s very convenient to the grocery store and shops. We have reserved for next year but are keeping an eye out for other places that have what I mention above is important to us and wish Ruggles had! Thank you for sharing your home with us :)
Leah,
Thank you for the review.
I have passed on your concerns and suggestions.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay.
Hope to see you again in the 2024 season.

Another great OBX vacation!

This is our third time renting WH816. The positives are a super clean house, well stocked kitchen, large pool, proximity to shopping and new decking. The negatives are a very small common living area which makes it hard for all the adults to gather in one place. Also, the mattress in the upstairs master bedroom really needs to be replaced for next season.

I would recommend Ruggles Too for a great vacation. This was our first time in OBX and renting a house. We usually rent condos. It was great! The house was very clean and well maintained. We did have to call about a loose deck railing and maintenance was there to fix it within a couple hours. Very easy to walk or bike to many restaurants and shops. Thanks for sharing your home.
Dear Kristy
We are so delighted you had a great stay at Ruggles Too! The homeowners are simply "The Best" and work year-round making this OBX vacation home so wonderful for all!
See you next summer!

Had a wonderful 2 weeks here! The location was really great especially for not being an oceanfront house. The pool and the hot tub were clean and well-maintained, it was perfect for the October weather after several hours at the beach each day. The kitchen was well supplied with plenty of cookware and utensils which we appreciated since we enjoy cooking all our meals. <br/>It was obvious the owner takes pride in their property and wants others to care for it as well. The house was neat and clean but there needs to be more attention to thoroughly cleaning the kitchen. Thank you for a memorable and completely relaxing vacay! I would happily recommend this property and also be delighted to return.

This home is lovely and well situated for beautiful ocean views and easy access to the beach. The interior was clean, bright, and comfortable. With the pandemic we were searching for a place rated well for cleaning practices and this location met those standards and the owners posted a letter on the refrigerator to explain the extra care being taken with their home. The property management company staff were helpful and courteous but we were uneasy to find they did not wear masks for the indoor pick up and drop off of the keys for this property.
Dear Andrea
Thank you for taking the time to review RUGGLES TOO, I'm delighted you found the home so welcoming. We find it wonderful as well.
I am sharing your mask concern with our Property Manager, Brenda, so this may be addressed.

Our families really enjoyed staying at the Ruggles Too. The house was spacious and clean. It was nice of the owner (Mary Jane) to call to check if everything was okay. I would have given the property location a 5 if it wasn't for the picture showing the beach entrance right across the street, the entrance actually belong to the house next door, you have to use the public beach access 4 houses down. Beside that, a great vacation home to stay at.

We enjoyed our week tremendously! The house is nicely appointed and fit our families. We liked the location as it was close to shopping and the Food Lion. That was very convenient. The only concern we had was that the pictures show a private beach access near the house. That is not for this house. We used the public beach access on Dolphin. It was 4 houses away. It was a quick walk but you should know that you can't use the access across the street. <br/>Overall it was a great trip and we enjoyed the house.

Very nice accommodation, well equipped, clean and convenient to stores, shops and beach. The grass wasn't cut when we arrived but was later in the week. Volleyball court was in need of repair, a net and volleyball. Otherwise everything was great. On Monday, the owner called the house to see if everything was ok on arrival which was thoughtful and unexpected. The traffic on rte 12 is horrendous and unavoidable.

Unique stay in Corolla - always a different experience when you go. This time a couple of days of heavy rain (remnants of Julia) and heavy surf almost every day of our two week stay. At least the 2nd time we have stayed at Ruggles Too. Love the house and the way it is kept up.
Dear Donald,
Thank you so much for staying with us again, storms are always an adventure!

We rented home for two families with total of 12 people. It was our first trip to Outer Banks and the other families first stay in Corolla. We found the location to be ideal with beach across the street , close proximity to Food Lion and lots of stores. House was perfect size and we even had an unused bedroom. The pool is great size and private volley ball court was a lot of fun. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans...making cooking for 12 a breeze. <br/><br/>We don't have any real Complaints other than replacing shades with room darkening or even better black out models. All the bedrooms have windows that received an incredible amount of sun due to eastern exposure and the Window treatments did not work well. Kids were up pretty early due to huge amount of bright light. My wife and bought eye masks to solve the issue. <br/><br/>Suggestion would be to have no grow sprayed on volley ball court as crab grass stinks to step on with bare feet. <br/><br/>We have great experience and highly recommend home to others. <br/>
Dear Joseph,
We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with such detailed feedback about your stay at WH816- RUGGLES TO. Thank you for vacationing with Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals this Summer. We certainly enjoyed having you as our guest and look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

The rooms had all we needed, the pool was great as was the hot tub, outdoor shower was great and the sand toys and beach chairs at the home was a nice addition. Plenty of room in the home, never felt crowded with 6 adults and 7 children. One small issue was that the lock came out of the door when I inserred the key but the management company had someone out to fix it the next day. I did call to see if the house was ready earlier than 4 and was told no- completely fine since I did. Not pay for early check in-- but the cleaning staff did not show up until close to 4 and apparently had called the house in clean to the property management. When I checked in and told them the property was not ready she said that it was 4 and she had to let me in but that the place was called in clean. They finished up before 5 but it was certainly not clean and ready at 4. But that was really minor-- the house was really great!

We went to the Ruggles Too house from July 18-25 and had a great time. We had three separate families and the house worked well with the many bedrooms & bathrooms it worked out well. The unit was clean and fairly nice. it is getting to the point is could use some paint & updating but overall it shows well. I don't think the location could be much better it is right across from the beach access (2 minute walk) and is close to many restaurants, grocery store, liquor store, mini-golf, go-karts etc. The kitchen is well equipped and had all the items you would have at home and was great to cook in. We spent a lot of time in the pool & the hot tub and was a big hit with all of our kids (7 kids & 6 adults). Would stay here again in a second, due to the location alone.<br/>

The house is spacious, very well maintained. The layout is great. Pool and hot tub were great for those who didn't want to spend all day at the beach. Puzzles, games, pool toys,and volleyball all helped keep the kids busy and tired at the end of the day. Great place for multi families. The walk to the beach was very easy (about 2 minutes) Check in was easy and we got a gift bag from the rental company. The only downside was the traffic jam getting to the island. One of our best vacations yet!
Dear Steve,
I knew you would have a great vacation stay at RUGGLES TOO. Isn't this house simply the best?
The homeowners really do go the extra mile making their guests welcome. I love how they keep the home stocked with all types of games and puzzles.
