Overview

About the property

Beautiful home newly decorated, new appliances, hot tub and pets acceptable

This wonderful house named 'Bluewater' has been overhauled top to bottom, inside and outside. Inside, the house is extremely spacious and well appointed, with all new plush beds, new appliances and new flat screen TVs. Outside, there are numerous decks with lots of seating, a screened porch with new gas grill and dining table, plus a hot tub and hammock and swinging seats in the shade. You will really be happy when you return from the beach as there are two separate outdoor showers. This incredible home is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac very near the fitness center, 15 acre lake, lakeside pool, tennis courts, playground and basketball courts. It is a short stroll or bike ride to the beach-front pool. We have a great view of the Currituck Lighthouse which comes to life each evening at dark.

In terms of bedrooms, there are two masters on the second floor with king size beds and en suite bathrooms. One of the masters has a built in desk for working and we provide a printer/fax/copier to help keep up with things back at the office. On the first floor, there is a bunk room that sleeps four and two bedrooms with queen beds. All beds are brand new and are plush (i.e., very comfortable). We provide sheets and bath towels for your use, so no packing or renting linens.

Check in on Friday - Get checked-in, settled and relaxing faster and with less hassle than Saturday-Saturday rentals (when 65-70% of OBX vacationers arrive/depart).

Beach - Find the beach a five minute walk away - for your convenience we provide: beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach toys, cooler, and a beach cart to get you and your necessities to and from the beach.

Getting to the Beach:

Walking (5 minutes)-slip out the back door, walk across to Ocean Hill Blvd East, turn left onto Windance Lane, access to beach (and closest parking lot) on right side about 600 feet down the street

Driving (2-3 minutes)-go North on Rt. 12 about 1/4 mile, after sharp turn, turn right onto Headwind Way and parking lot, ocean side pool and snack bar are straight ahead

Hot Tub and Pools - we have a 5-6 person hot tub on the second level in the shade under the screen porch (3rd level). We do not have a private pool, but the closest neighborhood pool is within approximately 200 feet of the house and we have usually found it to be quiet and not crowded. Both that pool and the ocean side pool are large and staffed during the day and include chairs and tables with umbrellas.

Renter Reviews - We have owned and rented another 5BR home in Wintergreen, VA for 11 years and there are 100+ renter reviews that are all outstanding. To get a sense of how we furnish and maintain our houses and communicate with renters, please see reviews for house #73537 on VRBO.

About Gina and Chris Hamilton

We have been enjoying the Outer Banks for many decades. We bought a house in Villages of Ocean Hill last year and have been so pleased by the location and community amenities that we jumped at the opportunity to buy a second home as a rental property

Gina and Chris Hamilton purchased this house in 2014

Why Gina and Chris Hamilton chose Outer Banks

You will be stunned by this property inside and outside. It is well designed and conveniently located for lots of activities. It is also well suited to an executive that wants to get away with their family and still have some work space with a phone, internet and printer/fax/copier.

What makes this house unique

We have put a lot of effort into making this a very comfortable and well appointed home. You will no doubt say 'wow' when you arrive.

Great house and a great area in Corolla!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the house. There was plenty of bedrooms and places to hang out on all the decks, especially the top deck off the kitchen! We never got to use the two pools that the property has within it's community because we were always at the beach, but they looked lovely! The kitchen is well appointed and we cooked almost every night except one! We never used the gas grill because there is also a Weber charcoal BBQ that we used. Another great thing about the house is it's dog friendly, our dogs really enjoyed the beach and so many places to walk! The best thing is the proximity to the 4Wheel Beach! Literally like 3 minutes away. We packed up our pick-up and jeep and drove onto the beach and had a great time, so much fun! We even saw the wild horses one day! The owners Gina and Chris are very nice, even dropped off some extra hangers for us. The couch in the living room is so comfortable, I actually contacted them to see where they got it from, and we ordered the couch when we got home!

Welcoming home in convenient beach community

  • 5 of 5

I met family traveling into OBX from different states. Many first timers and we all absolutely loved the accommodations. The home is conveniently located across from the beach in a community with two pools, tennis courts, basketball and a park for kids. We had lots of children with us during the stay and even got to use the beach toys and bikes with baby buggy for transport to the nearby beach access. We mostly cooked in and the kitchen and multiple tables for seating accommodated our party perfectly. Plenty of showers within the property and comfortable sleeping arrangements. I would definitely recommend this property for friends and family and hope we're able to come back for another stay soon. Special thanks to the hosts for their warm welcome! They knew we had children and helped us navigate fun children activities during our stay too! Highly recommended.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at Bluewater. It is in a great location with community amenities of pools, tennis courts, playground, walking paths, parking at the beach access and workout room. The house is well maintained and big enough for families to share the home together. We are already looking forward to our next visit at Bluewater.

Relaxing atmosphere and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. The house was clean upon arrival and was ready when promised. The only "problem" we had during our stay was the refrigerator. It was not as cool as it should have been, however, our food did not spoil or anything. We did ask for maintenance to come, but they didn't arrive until halfway into our stay. My only suggestion would be to spray the porches down with some type of spider repellent. They were everywhere at night which made it hard to enjoy the hot tub and upper deck. We will most likely stay here again in the future. It was a 10 second drive to the beach with ample parking and great pools! Thanks again for letting us rent your home. We loved it.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback, of course, but to be clear we called in the refrigerator for service immediately upon being contacted and in OBX fashion it took a couple of days for the service tech to arrive. It turned out the problem was user error with a setting and there was no repair needed. We have always had the house treated for bugs, including spiders, but I will request an intermediate spraying.

Comfortable, clean, and convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Bluewater was very fun and relaxing. It was a very quick bike ride to beach access thanks to the two bikes and kids trailor that are provided, and a delicious coffee and beer garden, tons of restaurants, the Corolla Adventure Park, historic Old Corolla, the lighthouse...All were a moment's walk, ride or drive away. We really didn't need our car except for grocery trips. The house is in a cul-de-sac next to the (small) main road, which made for fun people watching and gave us a feel of seclusion since we weren't looking right into someone's backyard. Being able to bring the dog was a bonus. There's an enclosed pebbled area under the house for off leash potty breaks...not having to walk him every time he needed to go was great.
