"The location was amazing. We loved the amenities of Buck Island and the proximity to shopping and restaurants. The house was well equipped in the kitchen and the updated bathrooms were a welcome addition."
"We loved this homes location! It is a very well kept home, beautiful and comfortable."
"House was well beautifully furnished; kitchen well-stocked. We loved the beachfront location as well as the pool area. Everyone agreed this was the best house we have rented from Twiddy."
"The house is absolutely beautiful...the location, the access to the stores, and being right on the beach makes it perfect for our family. The homeowner was well aware of the needs of large families utilizing the space. Having two refrigerators, two dishwashers and two washers and dryers besides all of the other amenities just adds to the comfort of this home. We have been at this home for two years and are planning on returning next summer."
"The closeness to the beach, the amount of rooms, and bathrooms, the cleanliness, and kitchen (And large fridge!) and the views (great windows). The deck was also great. The pool and hot tub were also amazing."

"THE LOCATION OF THE HOUSE AND ITS AMMENITIES."
"The house was beautiful and had plenty of room for our family. The kitchen was well stocked and loved having two refrigerators and two dishwashers. It would be nice to have a dust pan and broom to sweep the floors Some of the furniture in the top Master Bedroom needs replaced. The dining room sliding glass door needs fixed so it opens up and closes easier. We loved the house and already booked for next year."
"We love the private pool, well stocked kitchen, short private boardwalk to the beach and awesome ocean views from the living room."
"This house is awesome! In the 20 years we have been coming to OBX this is the first time we rented the same home twice, it’s just that nice! We are huge into surf fishing and the convenience of the private walkway made carrying everything to the beach at the crack of dawn easy. The home has all the bells and whistles and the view from the decks is fantastic. I just wish the pool light (inside the pool) worked, it makes it much easier to see the kids when they swim at night to make sure everyone is safe. We called Twiddy but they could not help us."
"We have vacationed here for several years. The convenience of being on the water with all our young children was the best. Outdoor shower at the pool gate and exterior shower and toilet were a help. The house itself was great. No major issues at all. We will be staying in that same area again for sure. Prob not the same house as we go every other year. Loved the gated community."
"Staying in a beautiful oceanfront home was fantastic. That alone makes for a wonderful vacation. Also having the shopping within walking distance was a major plus. The house is very well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, small kitchen appliances, and two refrigerators and two dishwashers in the main kitchen. The owner thought about everything."
"Location! House was very nice. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of room to spread out for our group of 19."
"The house is great. A little outdated, but who cares! The view is fabulous, the pool is awesome, just and all-around fabulous house, right on the beach. You have your own private beach."
"Everything! Perfect location, absolutely spotless beautiful home."
"This is our third time at Whitecaps Corolla. It fits our family and desires well: plenty to space for 18 of us to either gather or spread out. Right on the ocean with a private heated pool. Glad to be in this home."

"We had a lovely stay at Whitecaps Corolla. The location Is wonderful and home spacious with a very well stocked kitchen! Most bathrooms are updated and modern. Some rooms and pool area could use updating and clean up. Overall a great time was had by all!"
"Beautiful house and we always have a great time with our entire family. We've been coming down to Whitecaps for quite a few years but it is starting to get out of our price range. We are sorry we won't be able to come back to Whitecaps next year."
Thank you for your review and for visiting our house so many years. I'm glad you've enjoyed your vacations here. it is a magical place. Perhaps you want to think about coming slightly earlier or later in the season when the rates are lower. We've been trying to stay competitive with our rates and do offer a 5% discount for any repeat renters.
"The location was perfect. The space was great. The house had some wear and tear that could use some updating. Pool area and master bedroom."
Thank you for your review comments. We have been making updates and renovations to the house every year for the past 10 years and will continue to do so. Both of these items are on our list for updates in the next couple of years.
