Just a reminder...a four wheeled vehicle is must for driving on the 4X4 beaches.
Nothing has been spared to make sure this home, with every appointment and detail, meets all your expectaions. A reverse floor plan maximizes those ocean views. The WOW factor permiates the greatroom with cathedral ceilings, juniper wood paneling and wainscotting. Double paned extra large windows make for a spacious and bright welcome for you and your guests. Here is where you'll fall in love. Here you'll find all the comforts to creat unforgettable memories of entertaining family and friends. All bedrooms have TVs and VCRs.

Rental House: Built up above the floods?

I think I took this picture because this is a house that can be rented. You see a lot of homes that are built up above the ground like this. That is supposed to reduce the flooding from high water in hurricanes. Of course it may also increase the possibility of losing the roof - I don't know.

Note that this is a "restricted" Whalehead community - there is a Resident's Only sign on the left.

No one seemed to be manning the gatehouse, but maybe that was because it was off season.

Outer Banks Blue Realty: Best Outer Banks Vacation Rental Company

Great company to book with. My family includes two dogs and we always get a beautiful "dog friendly" house right on the ocean in Corolla without sacrificing any of the amenties we want. When you visit the site, you can search by property feautres & amenities (like dog or handicap friendly, elevators, hot tub, heated pool, private pool, fireplace, golf, etc.) and availability to see what is available and how much it will cost. You can even rent online. Or, you can do it the old fashioned way and call the company directly. The staff is always welcoming and friendly and have gone above and beyond for my family with things like early check in or providing information or items we might need before arrival.

I also love getting a house rental over a hotel room because I have a big family and it is more cost effective for everyone and we get more room, an oceanview, a pool, and a hot tub!

Happy Travels!

Castle in the Air: They call this house Castle in the Air, and it was

This house is one lot back from ocean front, but you can see the ocean just fine. The wild ponies in the back and the ocean out front make this place heaven. So much room you will hardly bump in to each other. I really liked this house. I have stayed in a few more since. My favorite house in Ocean Hill is Ellis Island. Check it out, it is a 10. It won some awards and if you go, you will see why. I heard its worth every penny.
Warning! This place is pricy! You will never want to leave!

Located in OCEAN HILL
Semi-oceanfront A 40-foot heated pool with mini-waterslide fiber optic lighting Castle in the Air provides breathtaking views of oceanfront sunrises from its elevated Great Room, 2 master bedrooms, 2 junior master and 2 Gazebos - one with a therapeutic spa overlooking the ocean. Enjoy the sunsets on and the estuarine sanctuary in your back yard while enjoying awsome views of the Outer Banks from 4 levels of decks!
