This is an amazing house!

My family of five has stayed at this property for a week the past two summers. It was absolutely new the first summer and so clean and beautiful, we felt like we were at home. It's uniqueness is in being right next door to the community pool..only a gate away. My children are older, but it was still nice just being able to see them from the balcony. So its like having a pool in your own backyard, but better because teenagers can meet others here! The walk to the beach is easy and we bring a canopy and there's lots of room to set up on the beach without people being on top of each other. This is a unique community in that two families could share the house but the price is reasonable enough that our family could afford it by ourselves. The utensils, pots and pans,etc...are all new and it is a pleasure to cook here. They even have a crock pot! Amazing places to eat out also close without the traffic of the other towns. So I recommend the Comedy Show at the country club, The jeep tour of the wild horses, the Wright brothers museum, riding the bikes provided, karaoke at local hang-outs and just walking the beach. You will not find a cleaner, more beautiful house than this, and I hope to be returning this summer!

great house

The house was wonderful. We've stayed in the outer banks several times, but this is our first time to stay in Corolla. Plenty to do, and the house was very well equipped.

About Janet & Roger Jones

Corolla is our family's happy place. Our children, now in their 20's, continue to be drawn to its family atmosphere, passing football on the beach, biking to Heritage Park and walking up the Currituck Lighthouse and, of course, seeing the wild Spanish Mustangs strolling along the water's edge on the 4x4 access beach at the end of North 12.

Janet & Roger Jones purchased this house in 2014

Why Janet & Roger Jones chose Corolla

After vacationing in Corolla for over 20 years, we chose to purchase 'Serenity Now' because of its location along the Outer Banks and everything the area has to offer...wildlife, beaches, the ocean, historical sites, activities, great dining...and, the people we have met who live here year 'round.

What makes this house unique

And, of course, we love everything about our home at Corolla Bay...the pool and amenities of the community, the design of the house, the private courtyard and, again, it's location to everything we love about going to a beach area. We wish all our guests a wonderful stay and hope they enjoy our home as much as we do.

Review of Serenity Now in Corolla

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this place for many reasons.The location was wonderful. We had four young teens whowent everywhere on the owner supplied bikes. They had the freedom and we were assured of the safety of the neighborhood by the owner. It was everything she said it would be. The sleeping arrangements were a little tight. Would love to have had a king in the master and the availability of twins on bottom floor. The teens are well over 6 feet. But we were having such a fun time it didn't matter that much.Itwould have been great if an elevator was available but I just planned my trips up and down so it didn't wear me out too much.It also helped wear off all the food we consumed. The youngsters ventured into the pool and the ocean, and the basketball court was well used as well. The owner checked in on us by phone and was available for questions as well.This place is a gem.

Review of Oceanside Serenity Home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home, well kept, and everything the owner told us it would be. The home is only a few blocks from the ocean and is well laid out for families and stocked with everything you will need. The owner was very helpful and made sure everything was perfect. We would highly recommend!

Relaxing week at Serenity Now

  • 4 of 5

The listing description and photos were accurate.

Property was clean.

Owner provided good customer service.

I would recommend this property.

Bonus: The community pool is right behind the house and was mostly empty, so it is like you have a giant private pool!

Beautifully maintained and well stocked!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at Serenity Now in August had a wonderful stay! The house was spotless and very well stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed and we were delighted to be able to use the beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and beach cart. It was so nice to stay in a new and well-maintained house where the owners clearly cared about our experience. We plan to return!

We came to the house in July. It was very clean and tidy. The owner had every kitchen utensil and pot and pan we needed. She even had a waffle maker! The pool was so close to her house it made it nice because my kids could go there and not have to have me there every second. The pool hardly had anyone in it. It felt like we had our own personal pool! The owner had beach chairs, boogie boards, tons of sand toys and even coolers that we used when we went to Carova Beach for the day. Overall awesome time and we didn't want to leave. I would highly recommend this house!
