Major updates for 2018 include new flooring upstairs, completely remodeled top level master bathroom, and a renovated kitchen including new cabinets, appliances, and countertops!
Invite your closest loved ones to discover endless comforts and conveniences at "Better Than Tuition"! Located in section Q of the Ocean Sands Community, this meticulously cared for home lies just a short walk from the beach near the best shopping, dining, and attractions Corolla has to offer.
Enjoy a quick and easy stroll to the shoreline just a few lots away without crossing any busy streets. After a long day at the beach, cool off with a splash in the home’s private pool. A hot tub is provided in the gated pool area, creating the ideal setting to gaze at the stars while having a relaxing evening soak. The home’s driveway features a basketball goal, offering an opportunity for a friendly game of horse or around-the-world. There is an outdoor charcoal grill for special dinners also. In addition to all of the amenities at the home itself, you and your guests will have access to the community’s outdoor tennis courts during your stay.
On the top level of the home, you’ll be greeted by bright airy living and dining areas arranged in an open floor plan with updated flooring throughout. The chef of the family will love cooking meals for the group in the newly renovated well-stocked kitchen, which features new cabinets, countertops, light fixtures, and stainless steel appliances. A generous island provides plenty of extra counter space and additional mealtime seating. After dinner, exit the sliding door to take in ocean breezes from the sundeck featuring Trex decking. Just off of the living area lies a Queen Master Bedroom with a private deck and a beautiful, newly remodeled attached bath. The level also boasts a half bath as an added convenience for guests enjoying the common areas. On the mid-level, a second Queen Master Bedroom with attached bath provides additional privacy for adult guests. You’ll also find a queen bedroom with semi-private bath and a Duo/Twin room, both with access to a spacious deck and porch swing. The first floor is home to the last two bedrooms--one with a Duo bed & Futon (with direct access to the pool and hot tub area) and another with two sets of bunk beds, which share a full bath in the hall.
Whether it’s a relaxing, rejuvenating vacation or a fun-filled family adventure you’re seeking, "Better Than Tuition" offers the location, comfort, and convenience to please both kids and kids-at-heart. Gather your closest friends and family for an Outer Banks getaway you won’t soon forget at this well-appointed oceanside retreat!

The home has a great floor plan. We loved it. Plenty of room for our group. The pool was also nice. An added bonus was the stereo system. Sounded fantastic.

Loved how close a walk it was to the beach especially with 5 kids, toys, chairs and everything you need to carry there. Bedrooms and bathrooms were pretty well layed out in the house also. We were even close enough to walk to the turtle pond that we found last year when we were there. The pool was a great treat also in the afternoon when we needed naps or just a break from the sand.

We vacationed with another family and there were more than enough rooms to handle 2 sets of kids and the adults. The general living room/kitchen area was spacious and gave everyone plenty of room to eat around the table together, along with an outdoor picnic table overlooking the pool. It was a perfect small walk to the ocean and equipped with a pool and hot tub to use after we had our ocean time.

I rented Pray for Waves are we allowed use of the community pool and the stock catch and release lake?
Great questions Chris! This home is located in Section Q of Ocean Sands which unfortunately does not have access to the lake or community facilities. You do, however, have community tennis access.
