"The Big House was everything it claimed to be and more! This was our very first beach family reunion for my husband’s side of the family. This home comfortably slept and accommodated all 22 of us. Our favorite part…the pool area!"

Julie   ·  Stayed July 2023

"The Big House was wonderful. Loved the layout and views of the ocean. Kitchen was well stocked and pool area is one of the best. You can tell the owners want their guests to feel at home and take pride in their house. We will be coming back"

"The Great Room is great. Accommodates all of our family doing a multitude of things."

Thomas   ·  Stayed October 2022

"First time at this location after many years of vacationing in Whalehead and we preferred the street layout of the neighborhood plus the views afforded by the property's orientation. Truly a 180 degree panorama of the ocean from the main public area. Very spacious home, well equipped with beautiful finishes. Dining table was perfect for our group. Handicapped access ramp and elevator was a great help as well. Pool area was large, beautiful and clean. Great access to beach."

Judith   ·  Stayed September 2022

"The location was ideal. Close to shops and grocery stores. The great room was a terrific space especially enjoyed the massive dining room table where we all enjoyed food drink and laughs."

Michael   ·  Stayed September 2022

"This is our third year staying at the big house and we had another wonderful family vacation. We fondly remember every stay here and use the memories to make it through the cold New York, Chicago, and Portland winters. This year the house will forever be remembered as my 2 month old son's first vacation as well as the year I surprised my girlfriend by proposing. The big house has truly become a member of the family. 357 days until we will be back for our next reunion."

Tammie   ·  Stayed August 2022

"Plenty of room for a lot of people. Great location! The proximity to the beach was perfect! House could use a little updating, but otherwise no complaints. Great vacation!"

"The Big House was amazing! We had a big group from age 6-86 and everyone loved it. Wish we could do it again!!!! The pool and the closeness to the beach were never empty (life guard station was an unexpected plus) The big table in the great room had lots of great dinners and fun games!"

"Great place. Super big room."

Beth   ·  Stayed September 2021

"Our second year at this home. We love it and it fits us! The dining room table fits us all at 18 plus people, which is great. We have been coming to the OBX for over 45 years. Our family has grown and this house has it all. The access to the beach, the pool, the view, everything. But, it would be nice if the kitchen had a crock pot, or two, and casserole dishes with glass lids. My dad's wishes. We are booked for next year again. We enjoyed your home so much. Thank you."

Suzanne   ·  Stayed July 2021

"A most wonderful house, THE BIG HOUSE! Fully stocked, spacious, feels like home, private and up keep is well-maintained. It would be awesome if each house could list appliances and amenities to the fullest as we brought our own but this house was FULLY stocked via the kitchen. Also the TV needs to be simpler as to navigation. Otherwise, our trip was great! We have vacationed in Corolla past 25 yrs but this was the first time our family of 26 stayed on the beach and we loved it! TY Twiddy!"

Beth   ·  Stayed July 2021

"Location was great. Bugs were everywhere - 1st time in 20+ years we could never sit out on the decks. Pool was great but very little deck space around it for gathering. Also decking was too hot to walk on. Some bathrooms were not cleaned well and many was quite dated. Oven broke. Top floor was great with amazing views. Beds were super comfortable. Could use more refridgerator space on top floor. Pool was not cleaned well on first day an on Thursday was not turned back on - we had to get it going again."

Mary   ·  Stayed November 2020

"We enjoyed our Thanksgiving vacation at this beautiful home. It is spacious and very well maintained. A much-needed treat for the entire family."

Shelly   ·  Stayed October 2020

"Very nice beach house! Great design for facing the ocean. A few items need repair (kitchen drawer, light in guest room, wall outlets that were repaired during our stay, toilet not functioning properly on lower level, etc.). Pool is wonderful, great size! Nicely furnished - just wish the kitchen refrigerator was larger. Fun front yard with volleyball net and area to play horseshoes and bocce ball! Enjoyed our vacation immensely."

Beth   ·  Stayed September 2020

"The house was really good for our family. Everyone had their own bedroom and bath. The game room was enjoyed by everyone. The views were beautiful, even with the undesirable weather. The house is very nice and comfortable and room for all."

Michael   ·  Stayed September 2020

"The house is perfect The kitchen's one of the best stocked kitchens there are The pool is absolutely amazing we'll be staying there again next year!"
