We loved the view, the more remote location on the 4x4 beach, and all the amenities the home offered. It was beautifully furnished and very practically laid out for our family's use. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, dishes, and utensils for cooking and serving.

Questions & Answers
I was wondering if the water treatment system is working. Last year we stayed at a house not too far from As You Wish, and the sulfur smell in the water was horrible. Thanks
Pennie, T12003 does have a water treatment system, to help reduce the sulfur smell or salty taste that well water can sometimes have. For additional information regarding well water, please visit https://www.twiddy.com/faq.aspx#water.

Just want to confirm. We have two dogs that we would like to bring with us. The listing states that 2 dogs are allowed and also dogs are allowed on the beach (leashed). Is that correct?
Yes, Ricky, that is correct! T12003 is a pet-friendly home allowing a maximum of 2 dogs with no additional fees or deposits. Dogs are permitted on the beach in Corolla with a leash. However, there are no length requirements.

It appears there is no walkway to the beach at this house. Can you walk straight from the house out to the beach? I'm asking because if I rented this house I'd have my parents with me and wouldn't want them to have to walk too far since they are older.
Laura, this home does not have a walkway to the beach.

Do the outside stairs at the bottom enter directly into the pool area or under the house (where you would have to go through the gate to enter pool area)? We will have little children with us, so I just want to confirm. I cannot tell from the pictures.

Why do you remove the Weekly Rates once the house is rented? I understand that the rates change yearly, but it gives us a basis for comparison. Is there any way to get that information? We rent from you guys each year and this is a source of frustration.
