Amazing Vacay!
This home fit our family of 11, (8 adults & 3 young children) perfectly! It was enough space for everyone to have plenty of privacy if needed. We had no issues with anything. The home was immaculate upon arrival and it had great amenities in every room including beach chairs, a beach umbrella & beach toys. The pool and hot tub were a hit! The community is great and very safe. It was close to everything in Corolla but quiet and peaceful. It was a very short few minute walk to the beach which was perfect! The decks and views were amazing and perfect for all our family meals! This was one of our best family vacations ever and we will defiantly be retuning to Skipper's Sail Away!

This house is kept up great. The space and extra space is awesome! With each bedroom having its own bathroom, the time needed to get ready was simple. Everything needed for the family was there. Highly recommended.

Our best rental ever!
Beautiful home and furnishings with pool in a gated community. Close to beach access. A lovely, upscale, quiet area of the OBX but with shopping, activities and restaurants nearby. This property is a gem. Our whole family recommends it highly.

We loved this home and our stay at Skipper's Sail Away. The check in/out process was very easy. The house is really very close to the beach (3 minute walk) with the community entrance right around the corner. We enjoyed spending mornings at the pool and heading to the beach in the afternoons, or vise versa. The owners left a nice treat for us open arrival and called a few days in to check on our stay, which we very much appreciated. The home is well stocked with everything you could need including beach chairs, pool floats, towels, kitchen items, and we brought our 5 year old and one year old and there was plenty of games and even a highchair and pack and play to use...two less things to pack! It is beautifully decorated and was absolutely spotless on check in. It is a nice quiet neighborhood, perfect for walking/biking. We also very much enjoyed the multiple decks for morning coffees and watching the sunset. It is very close to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping. I highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.

Great Location!!
This house had it all…close to shopping, beach and attractions! My family and I enjoyed a week in this lovely home! First time for me to OBX and it was beautiful! The house had great amenities and the short walk to the beach and our private pool were wonderful on those sunny days!! Communication with the owners was fast and answered my questions when I contacted. I just can’t say enough about this house..has everything you need and the kiddos (and adults) even enjoyed the arcade game!!! It is spacious and has many areas when traveling with lots of people to just “hang out” by yourself. We also enjoyed the yummy chocolates that were left for us from the owners…sooo good! Thank you for opening up your house to us!

Beautiful Property
This property was in a beautiful gated community. Quiet neighborhood with beach access. The property was exactly as pictured and super clean. The pool and jacuzzi were an added bonus. Shopping and grocery stores right next door. We had a great and relaxing trip. Would definitely book this home again.

A great house makes for a great vacation
This house was perfect for our needs. It was very clean upon entry and there is ample parking (2 garage spaces + space for at least 3 more cars. Everyone enjoyed their stay here in Corolla (Skipper's Sail Away) We had plenty of room. The pictures do not do justice to the sheer amount of space in the upstairs great room. It is massive. The pool and the hot tub were nice and we actually got in a family movie night in the very comfortable basement. You cannot go wrong with this home. There are 5 bedrooms each with its own bathroom and TV. Each TV is a smart TV with cable and all of your necessary apps. There are also 1.5 additional baths and plenty of deck space to relax. I would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding rental property!
This is a fantastic, beautiful home in an attractive, well-located development. Everything was great, with excellent attention to detail. We've stayed at a lot of rental properties, and often they have terrible furniture and mattresses. This home was the exception with comfortable and attractive furnishings. Also the layout of the home, with decks facing both directions and plenty of windows and bathrooms, was excellent. Definitely one of the best rentals we've stayed in.

Great location, great house.
Very comfortable home, super easy checkin process. The owners left an info binder which answered questions we didnt even know we had. Thanks again, and we wouldn’t hesitate to rebook.

A most memorable family vacation.
There were 10 of us at this home last week. Two families of four, one from Houston and one from Long Island - with 4 children under 13 - and the grandparents! This home is beautifully maintained with plenty of beds, comfortable furniture and furnishings and plenty of separate spaces for young and old. The owner contacted us during the week to ensure all was good. The new pool/hot tub was a hit with all ages. The ocean is only a short walk away. The top deck of the home has plenty of seating which was our favorite place for happy hour each night. And the owners provide a delicious, surprise for guests! Our family agreed we picked the best home in Corolla for our first ever vacation in the Outer Banks. We will return. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful Beach House
The house was beautiful! It had all the amenities and rooms you would need for multiple families with young kids. The pool and the hot tub were in great shape (very clean) and just a short walk to the beach. Also within short walking distance of shops, restaurants, and a grocery store.

Beautiful house but psycho relator
The house was super clean and beautiful when arriving and everything was the way it was described. Myself and 8 other girls were staying there with two moms over the age over 50. The relator become aware of this and came over and searched our house including closets and cabinets and also the fridge. She then proceeded to tell the mom that was staying with us that she was not allowed to leave the house without the her (relators) permission. She also then would drive by our house in the middle of the night and just sit there for hours. This is such a shame because the family that owns the house seems wonderful and nothing but nice but it’s just a shame that relator acted this way because we will no longer by using this company to rent.

Family Vacation
Book the house for extended family...5 adults & 3 teenagers. This house was perfect. It easily accommodated us all with rooms we didn't even use. Kitchen had all the pots/pans/dishes/appliances we needed for the week. The new pool & hot tube were used by everyone. Beach access was about 100 yards from driveway. House located in gated community that was close to shopping & restaurants. Would definitely recommend this home.

Beach lot
Beautiful home with a short walk to the beach. Spacious and had plenty room for all the guests. Lots to do for the older members and little ones. The home and community were clean and we had no issues what so ever. Would highly recommend and I would absolutely stay here again.
