rachel purchased this House in 2002
Why rachel chose Ocean Sands
Although we rented in various locations in the OBX, we immediately fell in love with Corolla in th Northern Outer Banks. The short drive on Route 12 N led to the most beautiful unspoiled beaches along the Outer Banks.We knew that this location was the one for us if we were ever able to purchase a beach house here. Sea Loft Village is not too large, and has a beachy feel., and really wanted to be steps from the beach, and an ocean view was para mount. We did not want a huge complex as there are 30 some homes, and the pool and tennis courts were easily accessible but not within view or hearing distance.Our deck is private and off the kitchen so many meals are on our deck as it is covered. The outside shower and clothes line keep the house clean and towels can get hung outside.
What makes this House unique
Carova is just north of Corolla and you can drive on the beach. Great for an outing if you own an SUV.Go on a tour and view the wild horses. The lighthouse is just north of us and you can tour it. The kids will love the waterfont park and museum. Go carts are just a half mile north and water sports are accessible everywhere from kayaks to motor boats. Restaurants are great all along the OBX, featuring great local seafood that the OBX is renouned for.We enjoy many fine restaurants here such as Awful Arthurs, NorthBanks, Steamers, Tomato Patch,,Cotton Gin,<Collington Harbor Restaurant, Fresh seafood at Billy''s Seafood (A locals' favorite)..
So sorry we don't even bring our own pets.

Quick last minute trip
We enjoyed our stay! We were looking for a partial week rental and Rachel had a cancellation that worked in our favor. The property was perfect size for our family. The beach gear was a big hit with our kids! Our only issues were that the floors were pretty dirty, tile and carpet. My one year old had super dirty feet from walking around. We ended up keeping our shoes on most of the time. The cleaning company must not be doing a great job. I also wish there would have been more than one tv with cable. Not everyone can always agree on one thing to watch. But all in all it was a pretty great last minute vacation. Location is super close to the beach as well as most things in Corolla! Would stay again!!
Great location close to the beach.
Clean house and an easy transaction.
Location is great!
The owner was fabulous to work with, answered us quickly, and was very attentive to our needs. The location of this condo is perfect, right off the beach and central to everything in Corolla. It comes with everything you need, including beach chairs and umbrellas! We had a great, relaxing vacation.
Week in Paradise
Location is perfect. Owner thought of everything for kitchen and beach fun. Only recommendation I would make is to replace worn and soiled carpet on stairs. Rachel, the property owner was great to get the cable company out immediately to repair the WiFi connection after a storm. The stay was most enjoyable and I recommend this property to anyone who wants to see the incredible OBX sunrise.
Super Beach Vacation
We had a super time at Ocean Sands. Truly is "steps to the beach." The condo was beautifully decorated--very much a beach theme. The owner, Rachel, was very responsive to any questions we had while we were there. The beach itself is super--very clean, large and uncrowded--like a well-kept secret! The grocery store-Harry Teeter-- is literally across the street and the condo has everything you need to cook a full meal if you like. The condo itself is very "vertical"--literally 5 stories if you count the ground floor where the beach "staging" area is (well-stocked with chairs, umbrellas and toys which we used every day) and the loft where there is another bed. There is a great view of the ocean from the balcony--ocean views are somewhat rare here because there is a large sand dune separating the beach and the condos--the stairs over the dunes gave us a great daily workout! Overall, we had a very nice stay!
Thanks so much for being such wonderful guests. We were so glad you chose us . Thank you for taking such nice care of everything . We hope that you will stay with us again.
Wonderful family vacation!
The property was clean, everything we needed to relax and have a terrific family vacation. The location was perfect! The beach was an easy walk and any restaurant/grocery we could want was an easy drive. We enjoyed watching the sunrise from the deck. We would rent this property again! Thank you.
You will need to return again as there is so much to see in the beautiful OBX. If you have an SUV you won't want to miss the northern beaches where you can drive right on the beach. Spend the day there. Barbeque on the beach and maybe try your hand at catching your dinner. Take a day and see the wild horses. There are several companies that will take you. Take the free ferry to Okrascoke and lunch on the island. Stop for a swim on the way down.The kids will love the various rides in the OBX. The seafood is the fresest you will find.the restaurants are fabulous and if you get a rainy day go shop at the Tanger Outlet or catch a movie! No matter what your tastes are you will never forget the great OBX
