About John and Michele Little
Welcome to our humble cottage!! We came across this sleepy little house in 2016 and fell in love with it immediately. It needed help and we knew we were the right people to make it happen. After two years, much sweat and occasional tears, we decided it is time to share this house with the rest of the world. We have had some great memories with our 4 adult children and their families and we know your family will as well!! We joined VRBO in 2018. John served his country as a member of the United States Navy from 1984 until 2004. He has been on seven overseas deployments ranging from 6 to 9 months in duration. He took that military experience to work for Dominion Energy and now he is a Senior Reactor Operator at a nuclear Station just north of Richmond VA. Best part about that job is that he gets to kiss his sweetheart, Michele, good night every night now. Michele has been helping people from a Human Resources perspective for her entire adult career. She currently serves as the Human Resources Compliance Officer for the Hanover County School Board near Richmond VA.
John and Michele Little purchased this House in 2016
Why John and Michele Little chose Corolla
For the adventurous at heart. Isolated from the summer craziness but still close enough to it if you want that kind of thing. Easy daily drive-on access to your beach. You don't even need to take your stuff out of your vehicle at the end of the day. Unlimited wildlife viewing potential. Horses, osprey, eagles, dolphins, even an occasional whale.
What makes this House unique
Sunday check in and check out during the prime summer season. The check-in/check-out traffic on Sunday is not nearly as bad as your normal Saturday congestion. We also offer 3-7 day "mini-vacations" for the"off season" remainder of the year. Very few people realize just how amazing the dunes of Carova are year round. You never know what surprise awaits you. Built your perfect little getaway and check-in/check-out any day of the week, based on home availability.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Little Overboard! We used the house for a "home base" for a guys fall fishing trip. The house had everything we needed, was comfortable and was close to the surf! The communication with Michele was excellent and we are looking forward to a return visit next fall!
We had a great stay! Ready to come back next year if not sooner.
Incredible vacation spot
My family and I recently stayed at "a little overboard". Such a beautiful location! Property was as listed and Michelle and Jon were just wonderful. Loved the welcome bag when we arrived. It's close enough to the beach to enjoy, but far enough away to feel secluded. We awoke many mornings to horses right in the yard!
Our kids didn't want to leave and we have already talked about planning our next vacation to Corolla!
This rental is definitely worth a visit.
A little bit of paradise!
Wonderful Host, location and home. Wild horses frequented the backyard, the beach was a short walk away, and the house was clean and comfortable! A little bit of paradise! Definitely have the right vehicles; we did well with an AWD Subaru Outback.
My family really really fell in love with this place, A Little Overboard was the perfect place for a great get away. We have never been to to this part of the Outer Banks and driving down the 4wd only beach for several miles to get there was an unexpected adventure in itself. The house had everything we needed and then some. Really nice lay out, great decks to enjoy the views day or night. Quick easy access to the beach. great location to enjoy a daily visit from the wild horses of Corova. Michele and John provided us with all the information we needed for a comfortable stay. I had no reason to contact them while we were there except to say thanks for letting us enjoy their fabulous place and the great memories we will cherish from the time we spent at A Little Overboard. Looking forward to coming back again one day.
Secret Island Diamond
This was my husband and I first trip to a 4x4 beach and the experience and home was the best vacation we have ever had! Even before we arrived Michele and John made sure we had the information we would need to be comfortable at the property. Driving on the beach for the first time was so beautiful and the house was everything we could need or want. The house is secluded but yes you can see the ocean! Plenty of space and beds are great! The kitchen is beautiful and overlooks a big table and amazing living room with huge comfy couch and view of the deck that wraps around the entire upstairs! Then enclosed portion of the deck is amazing for evening sitting if you do not want to hang out with the tiny frogs who like to come at night. Oh the horses are just gorgeous, there are tours that drive by to view the horses so practice your poses in advance for other peoples holiday photos its fun! The beach is beautiful and you can walk to the oceanside if you choose but why not do as the locals and tailgate! Truly you are already on the BEACH! Hurricane Dorian was coming through when we were there so we had to leave early but we will be returning as soon as possible. You cannot top this home. Michele and John have done an amazing job making this vacation just perfect from the home to the welcome gift, great communication and the best part of all they let us bring our dogs which means the world to us. We would recommend this home 100 percent! If you stay here bring food, seasonings, drinks and do not leave the home just relax and enjoy the location!
