Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 14

ONLY 120 feet from the Beach. Enjoy the breathtaking ocean views and the unique decor while vacationing. Unlike many of the newer 'mansion' beach houses, this house maintains the feeling of a true beach house while providing a comfortable vacation center for beach lovers.

This beach house is one of the original houses built in ocean sands - it is older, more rustic and a traditional ocean house. No home theaters, music studios or elevators.

Please pass us by if you want a high end hotel.

The first floor features 4 bedrooms (each with its own half bath and sharing a shower/bathtub with a neighboring room), and a full laundry room. There is also a Private Hot Tub and a Gas BBQ Grill, along with a hanging swing and deck chairs. The second floor offers the large great room, kitchen, and dining area, as well as gorgeous southeastern ocean views! There is also a fifth bedroom with full bathroom access. The kitchen has modern appliances and is of an open design. Sunbathers will enjoy the large wraparound decks on both floors. The third floor consists of a game room/sun room fully equipped and ready for some fun with a queen futon, TV, Wii, and a Foosball table.

Discounts given to military, law enforcement, fire personnel and teachers. You should be recognized for what you do for US.

Pets aren't just welcomed - they are ENCOURAGED!

Love this house! We all hated to leave.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing this house with our family. We all loved the layout, great views and easy access to the beach. The kids loved the upstairs game room the most. And the hot tub. The beds were comfortable, the house had an overall comfortable feel like home. The owner was also very quick to respond to any issues or questions. We hope to stay here again and definitely recommend. Thanks so much!

Great accommodation for an affordable price

  • 4 of 5

We were at the Outer Banks for a wedding and stayed at the property with extended family. It was a great location, plenty of room and it had all of the amenities. There are great ocean views from the deck and the beach is a short walk over the dunes. It wasn't as opulent as some of the other houses down there but it was very comfortable and perfect for a family with kids and the price was great. Greg, the owner, was extremely accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again should we ever return to the area. One thing - upon arrival we were looking for the blue house shown in the picture however the house is currently not that color (we were there in May, 2018). It looks like it might be being prepped to be re-painted so maybe it will soon be blue again but right now look for the street address not the blue house.

Terrific!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here three different times and have always enjoyed the house. It is in a great location and Greg is always on top of any maintenance issues. Being able to have our dogs there is the best. We especially appreciated having the towels and linens provided and the new chairs on the deck are great too. On top of everything the weather was perfect.

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, pets welcomed, plenty of room to spread out, right next to the beach in Corolla. Less crowded than in Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hills area. Great place for finding shells, and I found my first piece of sea glass this trip! Can’t wait to come back!

Enjoyed Our Vacation at the Dog House in Corolla, NC

  • 4 of 5

Great location to the beach, historic Corolla, and wild pony tours. Very convenient to two grocery stores. All five bedrooms were comfortable; two had exceptional views of the dunes. Grateful for the four bathrooms on the first floor that shared two showers. Clever layout. Enjoyed a couple of evenings in the hot tub and swinging on the bench swing. We developed a true appreciation for the age of the house, especially after seeing the framed pictures on the ground floor of the house--which to our best estimate dated to 1980.
