About James S.

Adventurous and fun seeking family who can be found enjoying the surf and sand at the beach, hiking, and the thrill of themes parks (Disney fans here)!!

James S. purchased this house in 2015

Why James S. chose Corolla

In our search for our special home by the beach, we found the serene private setting of "Tucked Away" ideal for rest and relaxation. Set back from the main road, the home layout (inside and outside living areas) provided a warm and inviting feel that our family and others enjoy to create the valued memories and moments that matter in life.

What makes this house unique

The expansive yard, large pool, and proximity to the beach are attractive features for us. Each time we visit "Tucked Away" and hear the surf from the living areas reminds us why we chose this special home.

The perfect property and the owner was so accommodating

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the perfect location. It is tucked away, which gives you privacy but you can still see the ocean from the deck off the dinning area. The proximity to shopping and dining is also nice. The set up of this home and its amenities will be hard to beat. The bed rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Our favorite part was the pool area, the extra outdoor fridge, and the outdoor shower. I loved the outdoor shower, and so did my daughter.

The owner is easy to contact and helps with any of your needs. We arrived earlier than expect and James encouraged us to use the pool and outdoor facilities until the property was available. Then the property was available earlier than expected and we were able to get in the house a good 3 hours prior than expected.

There is tons of fun stuff to entertain kids from puzzles, games, and beach toys.

This is the perfect beach property, with great owners to work with.

Beautiful family home located in the perfect beach neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending the week at tucked away! The house was spacious, clean and beautiful. The kids loved the pool and we loved the hot tub. The house had everything we needed for a perfect beach vacation. Short walk to the beach, 5 minute drive to great restaurants and all of the comforts of home. Can't wait to return!

Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week in the Outer Banks, and much of this can be attributed to all that this property had to offer. The kitchen could not have been better equipped, to include modern appliances that worked very well. Between two decks, a screen-in porch area, and a spacious living room & dining room table, our family of eight had plenty of space in a variety of settings. The pool was well maintained and perfectly sized for our needs; and a shower to wash off the sand, a refrigerator, and a rest room were all within steps of the pool, making it very convenient. The beach was a short five minute walk away, and many beach accessories were available to use, for adults and children alike. Prior to making this reservation, we were a little concerned that Corolla might not have the same shopping services as some of the larger resort areas in OBX, but we were pleasantly surprised with the size and quality of grocery stores and all other products and services that we needed, to include an excellent farmers' market that had the best produce at a reasonable price. I would be remiss to not mention that one of the best parts of our experience was the owner of the property who was very accommodating and attentive to our every need. He truly gets an A+ for customer service, and it was clearly evident that he wanted to do everything possible to make our stay memorable. If a trip to the Outer Banks is in your future, we would not hesitate to recommend this property!
