Great value...space, views, location
A Guest from Bethesda, MD recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2017

A very spacious beach house, just steps from the beach, with all the amenities a family needs. The house was very clean when we checked in and the bundles of fresh linens stacked in the carport were more than we needed for the week. The management company was very friendly and responsive. The house could use some refreshing, but overall is a great value for the price.

Overall the rental property was good. A big plus was its proximity to the beach access and the beach itself was wide and uncrowded. A new gas grill was there and that was very helpful to us. The separate ice maker was a great feature. There are some maintenance issues that we noted and reported on our evaluation. We would definitely rent this place again if we decide to stay in Corolla again.
