About Sharon Martz

We love our beach cottage. It was our dream come true when we finally completed it in 2004. We love to hear about the adventures of our visitors. Corolla is a special place & we think 'Sunkissed In Corolla' is just as special. From our family to yours--Happy Vacationing!! Sharon

Sharon Martz purchased this house in 2004

Why Sharon Martz chose Whalehead Beach

Since we were young, & before the road to Corolla was open to the public we loved taking day drives to Corolla and four-wheeling on the wide open beaches & hiking back into the woods of Carova and watching the wild horses. We fell in love with the place then and are still in love with it. I can't explain how special Corolla is. Now with the new Wildlife Center and all the events held on the lawn of the Whalehead Club, it makes it even more special.

What makes this house unique

You can stay at Sunkissed in Corolla and walk to the beach, movies, shopping, restaurants, and grocery store. Or, you might decide to ride bikes that are provided by our cottage.Take a five minute drive to the four wheel drive area and see the wild mustangs. Visit the historic Whalehead Club or just enjoy the Whalehead Grounds. It's easy to spend all day at Heritage Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I hope all of our guests will take the time to sign our guest book. We have a guestbook at the cottage, but everyone gets busy and it's difficult to find the time to write in a guestbook. Hopefully, when you get back home you will take the time to post in our online guestbook. Thank you for choosing "Sunkissed In Corolla"

Little Pink Houses for You and Me!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a great place to stay and we are going on year 2 here! It has ample room for the three families who came to Corolla. Love having master suites for the adults! The kitchen is well supplied and we liked the square dining table as opposed to the long rectangle ones in other homes. it made our nightly Uno game easier for the kids. There are other games and books along with wifi. The pool area and downstairs games are well maintained. We are coming back in July for another stay as the house was just that good.

Clean, Large house, great location & plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! This house has FOUR amazing master suites- King beds and private bathrooms in each room, which was perfect for our large family (in addition to two other rooms for the kids). The house is very clean and modernly updated. The pictures do not do it justice! The kitchen was well stocked and the view from the top balcony was great for sunrises! Two FULL fridges was a great bonus. The owner is amazingly communicative and we appreciated her attention to detail and quick response time! This was the best beach house we have stayed in yet in OBX! Super close the a shopping center with everything you could need and a very short walk to the beach! We had plenty of living space on the top level as well, with 6 young children and 8 adults. We had a great stay and would highly recommend and hope to stay again in future years! Thank you for a great visit!

Very nice and accomodated all of us!

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation for 3 families, 14 of us total. Loved the house, the bedrooms each had their own bathroom except for one, which is a awesome feature. Lots to do at the house, appreciated all the beach items there were there to use, beach buggys, chairs, umbrella, bikes, totally enjoyed this house. We used the volleyball pit on the side of the pool and of course the pool and hot tub! We did have some rainy days, but we had plenty of space for all to keep busy!. Sharon, the owner was super and loved working with her!

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying here. It was perfect for our family. It is a beautiful house . Hope to stay here next year !. The owner was very helpful with all my questions. . We have vacationed in Corolla for many years and have never stayed at a house so great! We did not have great beach weather, but staying here made it a lot of fun, having the pool and hot tub for our family.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Been to Outer Banks 5 times in the last 10 years. This was the first time we did not stay in Corolla Light. This home was just as great if not better than the others. The bedrooms were spacious and had TV's in each The kitchen had everything you need plus more than I expected. There were many deck chairs as well as a hammock that the family enjoyed. The pool and hot tub were in great condition. You will not to bring nothing for the beach, like I did! Chairs, sand toys, bikes, and beach buggys provided. The owner, Sharon, was priceless and met all our needs and expectations. The location is one that you would not have to drive anywhere... most within walking distance. Would highly recommend this vacation home
